I - Introduction --
The one thing that webmasters wish for is a steady flow of web
traffic to their website.
My aim with this article is to give you a few ideas for bringing
web traffic to your website. once your web traffic is up and
flowing, what you do with the web traffic is up to you.
First and foremost, web traffic mainly comes from the following
areas; in no particular order 1. Web Directories 2. Search
Engines 3. Link ahoy! 4. Discussion Boards/Forums
We go into each of these in detail below.
II - Web directories --
A web directory is not my favorite medium for building web
traffic; but it can be useful to build PR which can help to
achieve better rankings in the Google Search Engine. PR (range
of 1-10) is one of the factors Google uses to rank its results
when someone does a search. Basically, with a higher PR; it is
believed that your listing should rank better than those with
With a quick overview about PR; PR is determined by how many
backlinks you have, and the quality of those backlinks. The more
backlinks you have from quality websites you have, the higher PR
you will generate; and as a result; better rankings.
Thats the beauty about some web directories and link pages.
According to how high the PR values are for the webpage where
you want to place your link; your webpage PR value would
increase. If you could manage to get many links on various PR6
websites for example; your PR value should increase and your
rankings should get better and should drive more traffic.
How to find web directories you ask? Its a simple task: All you
need to do is to go to www.google.com and type in your keyword
and the word directory For example, if the keyword was 'Cat',
the search term would be ‘Cat directory’ are various Cat
directories should come up.
III - Linkahoy! --
Ebaumsworld is a very popular website for finding jokes. It
currently enjoys over 750, 000 unique visitors a month. Yet, on
typing ‘jokes’ and performing a search, ebaumsworld is not
present in the top 100 results. How then can Ebaumsworld enjoy
so much web traffic a month?
Ebausmsworld mainly achieves this through backlinks.
Interestingly enough, on doing a backlink count with Google,
Ebaumsworld chalked up 9,550 in backlinks.
Now lets face reality: Manually creating 9,550 backlinks by
manually going to web pages and submitting your link is a very
The only way to create so many genuine backlinks is by having
After studying major websites, I've found that they are two
great ways of creating this:
1 Media/Downloads 2. Articles
With Ebaumworld.com, their key is loads of media, not
necessarily article writing. Web surfers are attracted to
downloads and media in general; It’s a much welcomed difference
to all of the text found on web pages.
Once you start to create a number of articles and
media/downloads, you will find that persons start to visit your
website more regularly to check for more media/downloads; Your
web traffic will increase especially when the articles and
downloads are really great ones.
The added advantage with articles as well, is that you can post
them on other related websites. By doing this, you can create
numerous backlinks by including your link at the end of your
Search engines love Article content; but we’ll go more into
Search Engines in the next section.
IV -Search Engines --
Search engines are great for driving web traffic if you can get
into about the top 30 results for popular search terms. With
Google, rankings depend largely on backlinks and PR.
In addition to these two variables; another variable is onpage
Onpage optimization is basically the editing of your HTML code
so that its ideal for placement in search engine results.
This editing may including the editing of meta tags,
descriptions, keywords and content realignment.
Quick tips for onpage optimization for web traffic
1. Use H1 header tags
Make sure that this tag contains your keyword.
2. Use H2 tags.
Largely taken as a subheading, make sure this also contains your
3. Evenly spread keywords
Also, with regards to the content, try to make reference to your
keyword regularly, but not too often. Try to mention it evenly
throughout the document. This is where the article writing from
the previous sections comes in handy. With your articles, make
There are numerous other onpage Optimization tips I can give
you, but I go into that more in the Optimization tips article
V - Discussion Boards/Forums --
Discussion forums are a great way to get your message out and
generate even more web traffic.
To find these forums use your keyword and the word 'forums' with
For example, ‘Cat forums’. Make sure that you keep a log of all
of them. You’ll want to be making regular posts here.
On registering, try to include your URL and a brief description
of your website in your signature. If you make regular posts on
the forums, and change signatures every once in a while to
reflect what’s going on at your website, you will have a steady
stream of visitors.
For example, an example signature could be ‘Catland.com – ‘How
to make cats happy’ article just posted 12/34/04’.
On these boards, you will also realize that there are several
recurring questions new persons ask.
With reference to the Cats forums; there may be a question which
you find reoccurs 'How should I groom my Cat?'.
If you can create an article to answer each of these questions,
you can always post the link to your article everytime a newbie
asks question. This will drive fresh users to your website and
once your website has in great content; will ensure repeat user
and more web traffic.
VI - Conclusion -----
There are always new ways of finding means of developing web
traffic. Offline promotion such as developing business cards can
also help. You've only just begun your journey! The last thing I
want to say is that fresh content ALWAYS brings return vistors;
keep adding content; and your visitors will return time after
With that said I wish you all the best with your web traffic
