Get Traffic To Your Website,
7 Ways To Get Targeted Traffic
List building step 3 – get traffic to your opt-in form, squeeze page, on your website or blog is crucial in your step by step program and effort to build a targeted and responsive email list. Without traffic or visitors to your site nothing happens.
Traffic is indeed hugely important and its importance can’t be overemphasized.
However, it needs to be stressed (and this is not done nearly enough) that the traffic you’re looking for has to be targeted.
It will do you no good if you get all kinds of traffic and the visitors to your site will leave right away because what they find is not what they were looking for.
That is why you need to do some keyword research.
#1 – Keyword Research, Search Engine Optimization-SEO
To get targeted traffic you need to use the right keywords, more specifically keyword phrases. That is how your blog or website is found in the search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing.
Search Engine Optimization or SEO is a big subject for this post but you must use keyword phrases in your titles and text that are relevant to your topic and blog or website niche.
That way the people who will land on your pages will be your targeted audience or at least will have an idea what to expect and will be interested in what they find on your site.
#2 – Write A Good And Valuable Content
Make sure you post a content that is of good value to your readers and visitors. You want them to stay and read for a while and to find such value that they will want to come back.
Make sure that your content is your original work, that you are contributing to the internet community. The search engines will reward you for originality too.
Answer your readers comments and develop a relationship with them.
#3 – Link To Websites That Are Related And Well Liked By Google
Most people will resist doing this thinking that it will cause their visitors to leave.
Some of the visitors may do so but the benefits of your site or blog reaching out and linking to other sites will far outweigh any visitor leakage.
#4 – Comment On Other Websites And Blogs
Leave valuable comments on other blogs. Please don’t just say “I agree with you” or “very nice post”. That is not a comment but a lip service amounting to a spam.
A good and valuable comment is adding value. If you can’t write comments of value that are longer than 4 lines of text don’t bother.
But good comments will get you noticed and besides getting a link to your blog or site they may even bring you some visitors.
You can also join forums related to your niche and comment there. If you do a good job at it some people will want to visit your blog or website to find out more about you and what you have to offer.
#5 – Join Social Media, Facebook, Twitter
You can find people through social media sites and form contacts and relationships there.
Whatever you do, don’t be just interested in selling your stuff. Be interested in other people, build relationships, form friendships and network.
#6 – Post Videos On You Tube
You can post videos on You Tube about yourself, your business and your hobbies.
Include your blog or website links in the video.
#7 – Put your Blog Or Website URL Into Your Email Signature
This is such an easy thing to do that you can implement it right away.
Whether you write lots of emails like most people or just one or two per day it really doesn’t matter. Once you have your email signature in place it will be there forever and people will see it every time they receive an email from you.
If they click on your URL in that email you have another visitor.
Who knows, they may even opt into your mailing list if they like your blog.
