Targeted Website Traffic



Targeted website traffic is the key to almost 99% of the business online today.  Websites and blogs are constantly competing against each other for every ounce of visitor traffic that they can get.  Also, smart internet marketers use many different forms of traffic generation strategies that will help to get website traffic to their sites, while continually updating and looking for additional methods and strategies that will also help to consistently increase their traffic numbers.

Now that you have your new website published it probably feels really exciting.  You feel like you are ready to take on the world.  But, one thing still remains, something that almost every new internet marketer fails to take into consideration, and that is TRAFFIC! Who is going to visit your new website?  How will they find you?

Building your website and publishing it online is only the first step for your new internet business.  Promoting your website is the next big step; it is where you want to get it out in front of other people online so they can visit your site.  There are many ways that you can promote your site, and many of them are very inexpensive or even free.

One of the best and oldest ways available on the internet today to generate targeted traffic is with article marketing.  With article marketing you basically write articles that relate to your website theme and submit them to online article directories to be published.  Once published online they can be indexed by the search engines to generate organic traffic and they can also be read by visitors to the article directories that you submitted to.  An author resource box at the bottom of each article will allow you to post a link to your website so readers can click through and obtain further information.

The content that you write for your articles should be interesting, informative, entertaining or even intriguing to your readers.  Give tips, advice, resources and information that relates to your own website theme.  Do not make the mistake of writing a sales page for your readers as this will only turn them off.  You want to capture their attention by providing content that will give just enough information where they will want to seek out more, and to do this they will have to click through on the link in the resource box.

Everyone has heard of blogging by now, as it has become one of the most popular forms of displaying content on the internet today.  Utilize a blog with your website and write about your sites topic giving points, resources and ideas to fellow marketers or interested readers.  Make your blog a traffic generator for your website, and make sure that your blog is tied to your site by linking to it.

Another great way to drive targeted traffic to your site is by using Twitter.  By using Twitter it is possible to get targeted followers over a period of time.  Keep an eye on people that have the same interests as you or share the same online business theme and follow them and they will do the same.

One of the fastest growing areas that you can use to promote and generate targeted traffic is through the social networking sites.  Of course, the most popular being Facebook, but there are so many others that you can take advantage of, and many of these are smaller, but have a more responsive membership.

The whole idea of generating targeted traffic for your website is by you promoting it.  Don’t be afraid to get your website in front of others.  Nobody knows that your site exists, so it is up to you to tell them about it.
