Tech Tip 31: Traffic Building Tips!!

Posted on: April 24, 2009

This post is a follow up on the previous one, which was on promoting your website/blog. There are many ways you can increase the traffic to your site. Here’s a round-up on some of them:

1. Use the HTML Meta tags – specify appropriate keywords that relate to your site or blog in the meta tags. Search engines look at these when looking for results. Also, use the header tags (H1, H2 etc.) more often.

2. Use keywords in your hyperlinks, e.g. instead of saying “click here to see that page“, say “on the article on website promotion…” And on your HTML pages, do NOT use frames. Most search engines do not crawl the content within frames for the information they are looking for.

3. Submit your website/blog to the main search engines: Google, Yahoo and Live. With this done, you have to wait patiently because it takes a while but eventually it does work out well.

4. Comment on related blogs. Increase your popularity on the blogosphere or on the web by writing on other related blogs or websites. Express your views and opinions by adding comments under posts and articles on other blogs. While you’re adding a comment, you might as well provide a link to your blog too.

5. Publish a newsletter – You don’t have to sell all of them but readers like to get free information in their mailbox. Write a newsletter with very good content and popularize your product/website or blog. Give good recommendations and make it interesting to keep your readers hooked.

6. Use online forums and message boards – post messages in a forum or like no 4. above, say something to add into the discussion and let your online presense be known. Use message boards too and don’t forget to add a link to your website or blog while you’re at it.

7. Broadcast yourself on YouTube and advertise your blog on Facebook – These two websites have millions of users whom you can reach to. Its a great way of telling the world about yourself, your products, your blog etc.

8. Advertise yourself in pay-per-click search engines like Google Adwords. The good thing about using method is that you only pay for the traffic you receive.

Hope this list helps you in building traffic…more tips coming soon!!

[…] Some time back I wrote about how to drive traffic to your website/blog and how to promote it. Those tips worked for me, but I got a little greedy […]

Meta tags has main role in seo.Also promote your website with social networking and social bookmarking sites for more traffic.

yeah i agree with u, meta tags play a huge role even with google rankings. social media networking is i think the top reason for more traffic, considering the number of users and the impact it has, things like facebook, twitter, linkedIn, myspace etc.
