This post was previously titled “Auto Mass Website Traffic My A**” because I was so very angry when writing this article.
I have since changed the title to “Auto Mass Website Traffic Scams” now that I ‘m over my anger.
It’s just that I sometimes become completely exhausted reading all the scams designed specifically to take advantage of new webmasters trying to increase their website traffic so I felt a need to try and help some of you either keep your money or spend it in a more productive way.
I also know those of you reading this blog are intelligent people and by now should fully understand that you absolutely can’t earn a serious amount of money online unless you have a large steady stream of targeted website traffic.
The problem is there are too many seasoned marketers who are all too willing to take advantage of the new guy.
Just do yourself a favor and don’t fall for the auto mass website traffic scams that many new marketers are falling for.
You know the type I’m talking about. It’s usually a long squeeze page or sales page sent directly to your email. They’re set up to specifically sell a clickbank product with the promise that as soon as you pay you will have hundreds of thousands of visitors coming to your site to buy your affiliate products.
Take it from somebody who’s been at this business for quite some time now.
It’s just not real!
I understand the page looks professional and with a money back guarantee how could you go wrong?
But trust me when I say there’s only two ways to get auto mass website traffic.
One way is to buy it through a pay per click program such as Google AdWords and Facebook Ads or you could use a less expensive alternative traffic source. This way you can target for specific products and decide just how much you want to increase your website traffic. There really are people searching for your products and those are the kind of visitors you want.
The other way is to actually spend some time doing real SEO work getting your articles and web pages to the first page of the search engines namely Google, Bing and Yahoo. It involves keyword research, building quality backlinks by providing real content that interested readers want and doing the proper on page optimization. If you don’t understand the process of on page optimization then I highly advise you start learning. You can begin at the Search Engine Journal.
I have had some luck with some traffic exchanges as well but you have to be choosy because some of them are a waste of time with very little traffic generation. The traffic exchanges I do use and trust are posted all over this blog and the website. I’m sure you’ve noticed the links.
Thinking about it…. I guess that’s really (3) ways to get mass auto website traffic. Oh well…three is better than two.
That’s it….these are the only real ways that I’ve found to get true auto mass website traffic. You can buy it, you can share it or you can increase website traffic with good old fashion SEO and hard work. The rest is all a bunch of trash designed specifically for the purpose of getting your credit card number. However, we’re always open to new ideas if you’ve stumbled across others that are proven.
Hopefully once you do finally get the amount of website traffic you need you’ll treat your visitors well and not try to take advantage of them.
I’m guessing you clicked on this title because you want to know how to really get serious amounts of website traffic.
Follow the directions of this article and you can have access to all the traffic in the universe for free.
I will try to be brief so follow along.
I have been doing this for over a year now. I’ve started new websites since the inception of the one you are now reading.
I’ve done a serious amount of social marketing on different social websites such as Twitter, StumbleUpon, Digg, Delicious, Facebook, Squidoo and the likes.
I know what it takes to get serious website traffic.
I’ve written hundreds of articles for my sites and other sites like eHow, EzineArtciles, GoArticles, ArticlesBase.com and many others.
If you are looking for a way to increase search engine traffic and actually profit from advertising or possibly earn a living selling a product then start building a brand new site at this very moment. Build it using only WordPress.org if you want.
Keep the content of your site about one and only one subject. Narrow your niche down as small as possible. For example, if you are a watch freak then make your site all about Breitling Watches only. This will keep your keywords very focused and extremely search engine friendly. You will essentially write and display everything about Breitling Watches. The point is to get a serious amount of keyword density so that all the major search engines will see your site and know 100% that your site is a specialist when it comes to Breitling Watches.
Write 30 quality content articles with at least two images or pictures on each article before you go live on the search engines. WordPress will give you the option under “settings” to keep your site private from the search engines until you are ready to go live. Once you have your 30 articles written and all advertising in place then you can change your settings to be search engine friendly. The privacy settings will simply be changing the robot.txt files to disallow the search engines until such time you are ready to allow them.
Use your site keyword when you are linking out to other respectable sites related to Breitling Watches. This will help you to eventually rank for that particular keyword.
Be sure you use a theme that has built in SEO or download a plug-in such as “All In One Seo.”
Try to always use alternative text for your images.
Make the site user friendly and easy to navigate.
When you have your 30 articles complete and all Seo done properly then go ahead and change your settings to bring your site live.
Start immediately commenting on other blogs and sites about Breitling Watches. Make sure to leave a link back to your site with each comment.
Submit your site to the biggest blog directories and search engines.
Submit your feed address to the well know feed directories.
If you have completed all these steps properly, you will be seeing large amounts of traffic within days.
Always maintain your site regularly. Check and repair broken links, continue finding new Seo techniques, write new content for your site often.
Write quality content related to your niche for other well know sites in the top level niche and always link back to your site in the resource box.
Get to know other marketers in your niche.
Partner with the ones you trust.
Maybe Brightling Watches aren’t going to be your niche but you get my point. If you love ice cream and you are an ice cream expert then make your site about one kind of ice cream.
When you keep your keywords narrowed to one or two then you are greatly increasing your success rate. You will enjoy extremely high amounts of free targeted traffic forever.
If you read this article from start to finish, you now know how to get serious website traffic.
I have three different websites now and the biggest thing I have learned to date is that the relevance of your content is still the key to high traffic. The speed of the site, links, looks and ease of use are all important but the actual content carries more weight than anything else.
To be more accurate, content relevancy as related to your site keywords is the true driving force behind your website traffic.
For example, this site has quite a few articles related to Internet marketing but the articles are all over the place. At times, I will write about article marketing, music marketing, content, affiliate marketing, motivation, internet sales and so forth.
The site is not directed to one particular market.
I still get a solid amount of traffic, however, my new sites get quite a bit more traffic when compared to the kind of traffic I received from this site when I first created it. The reason is because the new sites are focused on one subject.
In other words, the content on both new sites are extremely focused on 1 or 2 keywords as opposed to 10 to 12 keywords. This makes the content for those sites extremely relevant to the keywords thus driving more free organic search engine traffic.
I’ve also noticed the same goes with article marketing. If I keep the content that I write on ezines and other outlets fresh and focused they seem to do much better by way of traffic to the article.
I guess the point I’m trying to make is this.
When building your sites, try to pick a subject that you are deeply interested in and write about only that subject. Keep your site keywords limited and stay up to date on the subject. If you can do those things you will always enjoy a large amount of free organic search traffic.
Here’s a video of Google’s Matt Cutts talking about the weight Google carries on content relevancy as opposed to site speed.
Are you using social media for brand networking? If not then maybe it’s something you should seriously consider. I am guilty myself of not taking it seriously until recently. Social media platforms such as Twitter, Digg, MySpace, Facebook, Delicious and a few others can have a huge impact on the marketing of your business. All of the above sites have millions of dedicated users who may be interested in what your site has to offer. The key is learning how to properly use these tools to your advantage.
Let’s take Twitter for example. Twitter is what I would call a micro blogging platform that allows it’s users to send short instant messages known as tweets. The message can not be more than 140 characters at length. When I first learned how long the message could be I thought, well that seems kind of useless, why bother? I couldn’t understand what all the fuss was about. I guess it never dawned on me that in that 140 character message you could send a link to a website or a blog or possibly even an advertisers link that you can make money with. Twitter is an excellent social media source to help your business build it’s brand. Just keep in mind that you can’t sign in and instantly start selling to your followers. Like any other business you have to build solid relationships and trust before you begin to try and sell them anything. You can follow Modern Day Peasants on Twitter here.
Other social media outlets like Facebook, MySpace, Digg, Stumble Upon and Delicious should not be overlooked as well. You should know that these sites have outstanding Google PageRank. Just by signing up and entering your site you are building a high PageRank backlink. In addition, if some of your readers Digg your blog articles or maybe give them a thumbs up on Stumble it could feasibly send your website or blog traffic into a whole new stratosphere. Generally speaking a new website start-up is not going to have the PageRank Power to get to the first page of Google, Bing, Yahoo and Aol. The above social media sites do have that kind of power. Use them to your advantage!
I am still learning new ideas about the world of social media and I am no longer naive enough to think that they won’t help. Build your website or business by networking in as many ways that will help you to be noticed. If necessary build your followers one at a time. Be helpful, be friendly and be genuine and in the end the world will know who you are.
If your organic traffic is not what you think it should be, consider getting yourself a great keyword tool. I can’t stress enough that if you don’t do your homework you will not succeed in the business of online marketing. A really good keyword tool will allow you to see what terms and phrases your competition is using to consistently get high volumes of website traffic that you could be getting. It will allow you to decide on certain phrases and words that will be easier to rank in because of less or weaker competition. From there you just need to start marketing toward those certain phrases.
I personally have used and still use SemRush the whole time since I started my website and blog. This program has been very helpful to me because of the stats that I can see. For instance, if I want to research the phrase “skull heads” because maybe my website is going to sell “skull heads” then I would type “skull heads” in the search box minus the parenthesis. The site then proceeds to list out related keywords, CPC, competition, average volume and the trends. Every single time I write an article, no matter if it’s for this blog or another online article source, I always use this keyword tool to help develop my title as well as the other high traffic driving keywords. All you have to do is register for the free version. It works well and you can upgrade and get much deeper into the search terms if you choose. I tried Google’s keyword tool and I still use it sometimes, however, this one seems to give me more results.
The best thing to do is find the search terms and phrases in your niche that have just enough monthly website traffic so you can compete. Obviously if the term has too much traffic or is really high priced for pay per click then you should know it will be tougher to compete for organic traffic as well. Currently I have one paid traffic campaign and it cost $12.00 a month. All of the rest of the traffic for Peasants is free organic traffic. Anybody can do this. You just have to make sure you use every tool at your disposal and be smart about what you’re doing. Don’t put the cart before the horse so to speak.
Get yourself a great keyword tool and do your research. Help your website, blog or e-business succeed.
Website lacking in the traffic department? Have you tried everything you know to increase search engine traffic but still only getting dismal results? Don’t feel like you’re the only one! Generating true quality website traffic is the #1 road block to webmasters all around the world. Anybody can build a beautiful website with rich content that’s easy to navigate but without a dedicated flow of solid traffic to that website then that’s all it is and all it will ever be! Without the visitors your profits will be sour at best if you ever even earn a penny.
Hopefully you have completed the other tasks that a good webmaster should have done such as proper optimization by way of keywords being used correctly, alt text for your pictures, testing interior links, making sure of easy navigation for your visitors and started to build some quality backlinks for your site. Yes….it is true…targeted one-way backlinks is where your hoards of visitors will come from. Now I know that some of you more experienced webmasters are at this minute saying to yourself “yeah yeah…..we know all about the backlinks” . My response is I certainly hope you do. Quality one-way related backlinks is the main necessary ingredient needed to increase your search engine traffic. They will determine if you win or lose in the world of online marketing. You see the major “search engine crawlers” or “internet soldiers”, as I like to refer to them, are the very robots that will bring that lovely traffic to your website. You will be able to tremendously increase your traffic if the search engines know they can trust you. The only way they can know that is if you have hundreds if not thousands of other articles and links all over the internet pointing to your website. Once the search engines begin to see the related backlinks you will have effectively increased your traffic. How much it is increased will depend on the amount and quality of the back links along with proper on-page optimization.
So now we’re at the meat and potatoes of this handy little article. Let me get right to it! If you spent 8 hours a day writing quality articles and installing quality one-way links all pointing to your website it would take about 7 months to a year or maybe longer to get the kind of website traffic you truly need. You should have about 1000 links and articles but to be quite honest 3,000 to 5,000 or more would be even better. If you have that kind of time then go ahead and build them slowly. If you don’t have that kind of time and you need to be making good money now by increasing true quality website traffic then check out some of these alternatives.
You’ll be seriously glad you did.
