Hey

I need more traffic to my new site, CurrentSignature.com.

On average the last 3 days it got about 15 visitors each day, that is 15 unique vistors, (not including myself, and not including crawlers/spiders)

What I've done:
- So far I've created a blog where I wrote about the site, (the blog contain link to site)
- Uploaded an article to scribd.com where I wrote about the importance of having a cool signature
- Started a linkjuicer.com campaign, so far it has made 24 postings, 3 each day (set it 3 so google don't think I use spam software to get high ranking)

Ideas on how to improve traffic is vey welcome

    Strangely enough I have been thinking of this kind of site last year. Great idea but can improve on page layout.

    Get backlinks from more various sources, your site is aimed at social networking so go with setting up profiles on main social sites, setup a coolest looking profile and invite tons of friends. Use twitter and twollow to get followers.

    One of most effective methods is socialmarker.com

    I hope you have your keywords figured out so you can stuff your bio box. Work with article marketing on high page rank article directories. It's well worth the effort and you get links for a lifetime.

    Other basic methods:
    --squidoo
    --hubpages
    --forum signatures
    --youtube video submission
    --commenting on blogs (using comment kahuna)
    --PPC
    --press releases
    --indexing in search engines and directories
    --classifieds sites advertising

    All Best!

    Make sure you are doing the free articles first.

    Make sure your site has been optimized for search engines.

    Find like sites and see if they will do a link exchange with you.

    Use companies like adbrite and for just 1 or 2 dollars a day you can be listed on thousands of sites.

      I have to agree with many of the posts. Although it is time consuming article marketing can really help you drive more and more traffic to your site. I would add something though that I've heard from others but didn't really do until recently - Take Massive Action! I went from posting 2 or 3 articles a week to 10 article directories to posting 20 articles a week for the past three weeks. I noticed visitors to my site increased from average 15/day to 90/day after each group of articles was posted. The increased traffic would last a few days then dwindle off.

      I assume if I keep doing this for several weeks the traffic flow will be consistently higher. I did get two sales out of it as well. It is time consuming but worth a try.

    What most marketers don't think about when talking about traffic is the repeat visitor. Those are the ones you should want and could be the easiest to capture.

    Good content, value proposition for the site visitor, good products...

    Mix it up a little bit. Submit your articles to directories like ezinearticles, articledashboard, goarticles, etc...

    Make some short but sweet Squidoo pages (2-3 paragraphs long) and link to your blog or product.

    Stay away from PPC unless you're really comfortable with it. Yes you'll get more traffic but the cost could outweigh the reward.

    Just keep putting your stuff out there. The more your stuff appears the more people you'll have coming to your site.

    Oh yeah, make sure you use keyword phrases from Google to write your articles, this will help out alot. You can also spy on your competition using a free tool called Spyfu, which shows you what they're paying for their keywords. Do a Google search and it will pop up. This tool may come in handy now or down the road.

    You need to write atleast 20 articles for now, and upload those 20 articles to Ezine Articles. If you are not comfortable with writing 20 articles, just write 1 good one and then outsouce it to www.odesk.com where you can hire people to rewrite 20 article for $15 or less.

    After all your articles go life, choose the best article out of the 20 articles (can be the one that has most viewed or most CTR %). I recommended you should wait for like 1 week to see which article is the best.

    You can then get more articles and link them to the best article to get it rank high on google. This way you can get lots of traffic in your keywords field. Also, sumit all those articles on Ezine to Articles Directories and link them all back to your best EZ article.

    Hope that help,

    Andy

    Hi Mate,

    What is your business model? Are you selling
    anything or are you monetizing with adsense?

    I think you get your business model sorted first
    before you start working on traffic.

    You've got ads on there from 6 pack abs, car parts right
    through to hot tubs. I dont think that is very
    targeted for what you what you are doing.

    Take Care,

    Michael Silvester

      I'm monitizing using adsense for now, when I more more visitors then I might change to somehting better. The ads is out of my control, google sends the ads to my page. I've tryed using
      google_ad_section_start
      but it seems to not help that much. Maybe I should devide content into categories: Star Wars, Movie Quotes etc....

    All you have to do is upload C2S Autopilot Marketplace system on your website just this once and aside from having an automated system of adding products on your site, it will increase visitors on your site as well.

    I use Twitter and Facebook, have a fan page on facebook and not just my personal page. At the moment I have 7000 followers on Twitter and can tweet your link if you want. Another way is to add links to a popular program, the biggest one at the moment is Jay Abrahams League of Extraordinary minds, comment on the blog.

    when using article marketing, avoid using high competitive keyword. in other word use long tail keyword. By using long tail keyword strategy your site still has chance to get high rank in search engine.

      • Profile picture of the author achivement84
        Hello, there`s many ways to da that , but to have them organized i may share with you this tips so you can have a wider view on what you have to do :-

        1. Power of the Comments
        This is a very important traffic-generation tip. Every successful blogger or a webmaster use this technique to promote their own sites through the internet. All you need to do is to follow popular bloggers and leave comments on their articles. Most popular blogs have an opportunity to leave your own URL inside a comment.
        2. Guest Posting
        If you have skills in the article development, try to write a quality article and promote it to more successful blogger related to that specific niche you’re referring to. For sure this is a technique which can get you loads of quality (related) visitors for free on your sites.
        3. Quality before Quantity
        You should know that quality of articles is the most important thing for every blog or a website. Creating a powerful and quality articles can guarantee you a long-term traffic from all sources on the internet. Including a traffic from the popular search engines or social media sites over the internet.
        4. Search Engines and Services
        Make sure to announce (ping) the most popular search engines and services like Technorati every time you create an article on your own site. This can make your article to be crawled and included into search engine result pages more effectively than waiting them to crawl your site automatically.
        5. Simplicity in Mind
        A lot of visitors like to see something simple, new and attractive. Make sure to create a simple, but yet helpful articles on your sites. This can be effective specially to people which like a simple and not-complicated contents. After all, I think that most people like things to be simpler than complicated.
        6. Engage your Readers
        Do not be afraid to ask your visitors or readers a questions. Try to be more active to your own community, participate in conversation between you and your visitors. Also, important thing is to let them share their own thoughts and opinions, just they can let you to do so on your site.
        7. Forum Boards
        This can be a very effective technique to get more quality traffic to your website or a blog. Try to find an active forums, related to your site niche and try to stay active on them. Share your own thoughts, keep your link in signature and you might learn something new and more.
        8. Offline Advertising
        Try to advertise your site offline in a real-life. You can attach your domain name in layers, business cards… actually, anything you want. Also, do not be afraid to announce your friends and to people you know about your website. They might visit it and share it through too!
        9. Leverage Social Media Sites
        This is a very important tip in a modern internet advertising. You should use this opportunity and leverage all popular social networking and social bookmarking sites on the internet like Digg, StumbleUpon, Delicious and many others. Traffic from these sites can be a very effective generally.
        10. Post Regularly
        You should know that you can attract more visitors to your site by posting more quality and related articles to your website or a blog. This is a very effective for a blogs because they usually contains more information than any other static website. Through it can take so much time, it can be done for sure.
        11. SEO
        Search Engine Optimization is now much less important than it was a couple years ago. But for sure, it is yet an effective way to get some additional free traffic to your site. SEO can be done easily, all you need to do is to learn how it works and how you should apply it on your site. Today, it is not that hard problem.
        12. Use Trackbacks
        Use trackbacks from linking to other blogs to generate some quality traffic to your own one. I have been tried this technique and I can say that you can get some quality traffic for free from quality sources on the internet. I could say that this is a very good potential traffic-generation tip.
        13. Write Helpful Articles
        You should write a helpful articles on your blog or a website. These kind of articles can attract and draw more readers and visitors to your site. Of course, we are talking here about a long-term traffic to your blog, because this kind of traffic is a very important for every site.
        14. Write Something Controversial
        This simple trick works in most cases. Think about those controversial bloggers and website owners you know and like! People tend to visit and read a quality and controversial articles, related to their area of interest. You should not offend your visitors this way, but it may work after all.
        15. Include your site in Directories
        You can get some new visitors by submitting your blog to related niche directories. I have not get some special traffic from the directories, but I have heard that some people can get a decent amount through them. I through think that traffic-factor here is a less important than link-popularity factor.
        16. Post Articles to Submission Sites
        You can get some good and quality traffic by submitting an articles to the specialized article submission sites on the internet like EZines, Go Articles and others. This can take so much time for you, to produce a quality articles. This is a specially useful for the new formed sites that are not crawled by search engines more often.
        17. Link Exchange Technique
        This is also a very popular among a bloggers through the world. Through it was much more popular before a couple of years, but it is still a popular on the internet. This way you can ask a blogger or a webmaster to exchange link with your site for free. Of course, you should contact them directly and ask for the exchange.
        18. Promote through Twitter
        Today, a Twitter is one of the most popular social media websites and services on the internet. With thousands of active users, it is a great platform for advertising. Be careful, today a Twitter is a great place for all kind of spammers which are trying to promote their own services and tools on the internet.
        19. Place a Links on your Profiles
        You should definitely get some new visitors and generate some quality traffic by placing your own link to your profiles on other social-media or social-marketing sites on the internet. Including the sites like Digg, Delicious, StumbleUpon or any other service you use which give you an opportunity to do this.
        20. Repeat Everything!
        This is a very important tip here. You should not in any case do any of these tips just once! As much effort you provide on advertising, that much you can get at the end. Spending more time to quality advertise your website or a blog is a key for success in this case.


        Best regards

    I have read most of these posts and did not see any NATURAL free traffic ideas. Here is one that I use...KEYWORD RESEARCH! Call your site anything that you want.ie.currentsignature.com (which by the way...gets no searches as a search term..I checked for you) Yes you can use all of these techniques above .. but all of them take time..Get targeted traffic to your site fast and FREE by finding a related HIGH Volume >>LOW competition Keyword and buy that .com name.Then when people search that term you will be ranked FIRST if it is a dot com.I have used this MANY TIMES and I do not care if others say it does not work.THAT's Bull*** and I can prove it!Search "churchjackson" in google search. I bought that .com domain just 1 week ago with intentions of helping the people of jackson find a church.The term was being searched LOTS. Set up the site for monetizing..used WP as the platform..pinged it with the right plugins and BAMM!! 1st on google for that search term in 1 WEEK..and using the other methods..it does not matter WHAT your .com name is because YOU ARE DRIVING THE TRAFFIC! GOOGLE WILL SEND YOU THE TRAFFIC for free WITH THE RIGHT .COM DOMAIN NAME! Just a thought

    I agree I look at Google Trends to spot an emerging opportunity then go to Google's Keyword External tool to look at the lowest competition keywords. I also got tired of buying traffic so I created my own traffic selling "kit". You can see it at TrafficSheets.com
