Traffic 101: How To Increase Your Website Traffic

Have you built a website recently? Have you noticed that you are getting little to no traffic at all?

Well, good news for you is that there are several ways you can increase your website traffic without having to spend a cent.

So, how can you increase your website traffic?

Just try using these different methods.

1. Focus on LongTail Keywords

It is pretty difficult to target popular keywords and rank #1 on search engines.

It is much easier and in my opinion better to rank high for longtail keywords.

What are longtail keywords?

They are terms used to describe less searched for words but with combined search volumes, they tend to be much more popular than the top ten keywords.

Two advantages of targeting these keywords are that they usually convert better and it drives targeted search visitors to your website.

2. Optimize Your Articles

The easy way to do this is to make sure you are using unique titles for your articles, using a unique meta-title and targeting your keywords correctly.

Do this correctly and you’ll start to rank high much faster.

3. Link Building

Backlinks certainly help increase your ranking in the search engines, not to mention it could help you attract more visitors to your website.

An easy way to gain great backlinks for free and without having to spend thousands of hours commenting on blogs or forums is to submit your site URL to backlinking building sites.

I have found such sites that help you get 4,000 backlinks for free.

4. Providing Unique Content To Your Audience

If you have horrible content or nothing but sales pages on your website, people aren’t going to bother reading it let alone sharing it.

Search engines look for the quality of content on a person’s site to see what kind of ranking that site deserves.

Therefore when writing content always ask yourself if you would bother reading it?

5. Decrease Your Bounce Rate

This is extremely important.

Your website’s bounce rate is the percentage of people who leave your website after viewing only one page.

If people just keep leaving you site after looking at one page, then why do you even pour so much time and energy into it?

Search engines hate high bounce rates!

An easy way to decrease your bounce rate is to make sure you target your keywords correctly and to optimize the pages on your site.

Increasing the amount of traffic that comes to your website can be done easily without you having to dish out a ton of money to get that traffic.

The basic jist here is that you should make sure you create a well thought out and insightful website that helps people rather than selling to them.

Do that and visitors will be coming to your website in no time.
