    Hai jenny,

    Use videos in your blogpost to to double your blog traffic. You tube is the second search engine. which give you huge number of views to your blog..To double your traffic create video sitemap and submit into search engines..
    upload the same video in video sharing sites which will make videos as number one traffic source to your blog...

    1. Social media optimization (Promotion of article post, blog post, forum post)
    2. Article Posting to high PR and with relevant niche category.


    These are the two best ways to increase your website traffic.

        Is there any special way to promote my article in social media..

        Actually Social media do play an important role in driving website traffic.
        And it is the most valuable source we have.

        First we need to focus on the term "Social media" What it is? Social Media is the content generated by the Social network websites.

        And social networking website is the group of people are interacted on the basis of mutual understanding.

        How Social Media can be optimized for your website promotion? which is known as Social Media Optimization.

        Suppose my website is related to Web design and Development Services. Now i need to search out those groups of Social network sites which are based on Design and Development.

        I need to join them

        And need to focus on their social media, If they have posted some topic regarding logo designing, I can give my own comments regarding logo designing and place my website link on this conversation. This is the way which is included in white hat SEO to optimized the Social media.

        Regards

      All the answers above are really great and I feel that I can add a few additions here.

      Here are my suggestions:
      1. Make frequent posts to your main blog (the one you want to drive traffic to).
      2. Create free blog accounts with blogger, hubpages, wordpressblog, etc and after every post you post on those blogs, add a link back to your main site.
      3. Write articles and submit them to sites like EzineArticles and post a link from that article to your main site.
      4. Create 2 minute videos and submit it to youtube and put a link back to your site.
      5. Every link you post doesn't have to link directly back to your main site. You should deep link some sites to say a specific site within your site (example: instead of your main site it could be yourmainsite/postnumber20)
      6. You can also link from one blog post (like hub pages) to another (like blogger)
      7. Try avoiding linking from your site to other sites because you don't want to send people away. And it doesn't look good to Google Bots either.
      8. Post Quality content and you should be fine.
      Cheers.

        there is some really good info there i think if you write all this down and re affirm all this in your head, write a plan on paper and try to stick to its basics youll do fine
        there are hundreds of ways to drive traffic and if you work at it a bit you can eventually do all of them
        i.e
        if you are getting three visits a day only from one place its still three visits if you do that in similar places it all adds up to a residual traffic of a few hundred *targeted* visits a day :-)
        i will copy and paste the quoted post above as the info is diamond in there :-)

    There are various means of directing traffic to a website. Search Engine being the most widely used and most common medium, which every website use and try to optimize its website to gain maximum exposure through search engines.

    Then their is social media, which is in fad these days. With ever increasing popularity of social websites like twitter/facebook and others corporate houses are utilizing these mediums to gain attention/popularity and ultimately business.

    Then there is ezine marketing, PRs, blog promotions, forum posting/comment posting as mediums of generating traffic to a website.

    I think you should look at it from your target markets perspective. What would your ideal customer Google to find your product? For example if you want local customers "widgets Knowwherville AK". Then I would have an SEO firm get you targeted organic search results in that term.

  • 1. CREATE PROMOTIONAL, FUN AND INFORMATIONAL VIDEOS
    It's worth remembering that nowadays over 80% of all surfers are searching for, and watching, videos online. Give the people what they want!

    2. CREATE A BLOG (OR MAYBE EVEN SEVERAL BLOGS!)
    Again, these are constantly picked up and indexed by the search engines on a regular basis. With consistent updates, Google and the other major search engines will reward your blog and your website with higher rankings, which equals more eyeballs, which equals more visitors, which equals more phone calls, which equals more sales!

    3. JOIN THE SOCIAL NETWORKING GANG AND GET BUSY!
    Social Networking works nicely to bring in new visitors and build interest in your products and services as long as you make enough friends/contacts to market to.

    4. SOCIAL BOOKMARKING SITES
    Bookmarking Sites allow you to drop the URL (a website page name) of your choice into a listing that other people will browse through as they surf by.

    5. WRITE SOME RELEVANT ARTICLES AND SHARE THEM ONLINE
    Write a few articles - say 5 or 10 that contain several mentions of your website's keywords and also reference your personal expertise in the area - then upload them on the web. People will read them, then click on the links in your bio section or resource box at the bottom of your article.

    6. BREAK THE RULES - OR CREATE SOME NEW ONES!
    Here's a very important extra point... The internet is still very much a new frontier; it's the Wild West of modern communication. You can break and make up new rules if you wish; people are doing it all the time in the online world. If they weren't success stories like Twitter, YouTube and Facebook would never exist.

    Good luck!

    Getting traffic depends upon your promotion, you can promote your website through directory submission, social bookmarking a bit, once you start getting about 100 visitors each day, stop promoting it, and write something new about every 2 - 3 days.

    Jennifer.
    Before you start the process to "increase targeted traffic to a website" you need to assess the current state of your content - and work out a plan for your future content in order to "increase targeted traffic".

    Assess your topics of your content to see if they relevant for the targeted visitors you are looking for, your keyword phrases to see what keywords do the search engines rate your website for, and are those keywords the most relevant for your market.

    Research your competition to find out what content they are publishing to attract targeted visitors.

    Based on the above, plan to publish your content to be updated with fresh topics that are more relevant to the targeted visitors you seek.

    Continue to publish relevant & valuable content that your targeted visitors are seeking - do that on your website, and as comments on other's websites, blogs - contribute to relevant forums with value insights, and post to social networking sites to help your targeted visitors with more info on your chosen topics.

    It all boils down to providing value content based on topics that your targeted audience are seeking.

    All the methods of promoting your content such as blog posting, article marketing, video marketing, social networking, social media, link building etc, etc, are just platforms for publishing your content to a wider net.

    If you have something valuable to contribute in your content - then you will get targeted visitors who will pass on the good word.

    So my answer to what "the best ways to increase targeted traffic to a website?" is simply to reassess the existing content you are providing - research the best topics to plan future content on (based on what your targeted traffic really wants - and what your best competition is doing), and then publish the most relevant and valuable content to your website and off your website using the methods indicated in this thread.

    It comes down to this - most people have trouble attracting targeted traffic because their content is not relevant or of any value to the reader. Reversing this trend is the key to increasing your targeted traffic.

    I'd put some focus on social media marketing but not a lot. Definitely create some profiles though with the various networks (twitter, facebook, linkedin), google likes that. The single most important thing you can do is start generating some content. Ensure that your website has a blog or news page and start writing about your products / services. Google loves that!.

    Good luck

    I like all of this useful advice. Also: add keywords if possible to each blog posting. I have started also to put a Twitter and Facebook like button on my postings, at the top (when I remember it). When I switch over to WordPress, I think it will be easier to have this done automatically (hopefully).

    I think this helps some, because every time somebody re-tweets or puts your blog on Facebook, it brings more visitors.

    Also, commenting on blogs that are in your niche helps too. Plus you can get ideas about what other people are saying about your subject, and get to know other bloggers too.

  • There are many different ways in which you can help to draw in and increase the traffic coming to your website. I suggest looking into all these different methods see how they work and see which ones will work best for you. The best thing to do is learn about Website Traffic, the best way of doing this is to purchase a course.
    You can then put all the theory you have learnt into practice. "Complete Guide to Traffic dot com" is a really helpful course and well worth the money. It is dead simple to folow as well and it is a video series along with quiz's which you can complete in your own time.

    Websites Traffic is the amount of data sent and experienced by visitors to a web site. It is a large portion of Internet traffic. Websites monitor the incoming and outgoing traffic to see which parts or pages of their site are popular as well as if there are any apparent trends, such as one specific page being viewed mostly by people in a particular country.

    Not the same line that everyone else is saying, but if you're not sure of the quality of your site or how it may convert, you can consider using google adwords or advertising for paid traffic. It's important to know that your idea is going to work before you invest in a lot of SEO work.

    Hi Wallacej,
    There are many different ways to increase traffic to a website. I think the first thing to consider here is how you are converting that traffic to income for yourself (adsense, selling product/service, affiliate marketing, CPA offers etc). This will direct you to the right source of targeted traffic.

    You should also consider how much you are making per conversion. This would help you decide whether paid traffic is better or whether to stick with free traffic.

    Some ways you can increase targeted traffic include:
    Paid Methods: pay per click(ppc), Pay per view (PPV), Solo Ads, banner ads, among others

    Free Methods: Social Media Marketing (facebook, twitter etc), article marketing (ezine articles, goarticles etc), Blog commenting, Forum Posting (with your signature), RSS Marketing, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Blogging and many others.

    Most free marketing methods are quite tedious and can take a while before you get some good flow of targeted traffic.

    I hope this helps

    Usually new Internet Marketers will do or pay someone to do seo, backlinks, article submission, blogs. And forum posting. I left out a few others.

    After gaining some experience with split testing and conversion, assuming your product converts, you can then buy traffic of various kinds including partner traffic and ppc. Offline markrting is also a great way to add visitors to your site.

      Thanks for posting this Jennifer.

      All these methods sound good for the long run, but also painfully slow and they take a LOT of personal time and energy to implement!

      As someone starting out myself, I was hoping to find in this thread some faster, more efficient methods of driving traffic to my new site.

      I don't know about y'all, but spending 12-15 hours a day writing, submitting articles, posting, blogging, backlinking, etc. for some pocket change per month isn't my idea of fun! There's GOT to be a better way!
