      Building a list is going to be one of the easiest ways for direct traffic period. It is a little more shaky at the start, but it is the best long term thing you can do.

      Go where your niche goes and direct them where you want them to go. Or present information such as informative articles that they can find via keywords and link them where to go.


      and returning visitors to a new site.

          One of the best ways hands down is article marketing. It's fast, free and effective if you do it right. Find a helpful topic that solves a problem for your target market. Write a compelling headline that grabs them by the eyeballs.
          Write a how to artcle, a numbered list artilce (for example 3 Ways to ____, or an article on how to eliminate a negative.

          End it with a call to action resource box leading to a squeeze page that collects readers email address. This is the best way to get started without risking money, time and your sanity.

    I am great with code but the written word escapes me, but getting better every day.

    List building was going to be my next post, as I haven't a clue on how to start.

    Thanks for being so friendly to a noob

      You start with something to give away to get the email address.

      Saying that food review site in your signature is your site, you could give away recipes. If it was for a local area you could give them weekly updates on local specials. There are plenty of ways to go with it. It just needs to be something with some value.

    There is no reason for anyone to laugh at these questions or thoughts about the answers. These are the same questions almost everyone with a website thinks about.

    Traffic and how to get more of it.

    Adding a topical aspect to your site can work well. People try to do that in various ways. My personal least favorite way is showing one of those Twitter widgets, set up with a hash tag or by username to show what is being tweeted about.

    I don't think Twitter is a bad things, but the character limitation is tough to communicate with in a marketing sense.

    My favorite way is to incorporate a blog with your site and write about things going on in your industry. Once you have a blog component, you can trackback to other people's psots in the same topic area or comment on other blogs.

    These are good questions and all they show is somebody with good thinking skills about how to make their site better.
