Driving targeted traffic to your site can be summed up in five easy steps. After reading this article, you will have a plan to protect your business and as a result, receive a steady stream of targeted traffic, accelerating your income exponentially.
#1- Do your due diligence by reverse engineering your top organic competition
Would you like to appear on the first page of Google? There are two ways to do this. You can spend thousands of dollars on advertising, or you can spend a small amount on a program that will do all the work for you. I suggest you find your top organic competition and reverse engineer it instead of paying money to advertise. In other words, what keywords and keyword phrases are they leveraging to get to the top of search engine results? Reverse engineering your top organic competition is easy. Just go to Google and search for “spy keyword”. Keyword Spy will save you hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars. I highly recommend you get it and use it.
Tip #2- Invest your time in content marketing
What is your main driver for driving targeted traffic to your site? The most effective method of generating free targeted traffic is content marketing. Search engines and people love fresh content. The most successful online businesses take advantage of article directory sites like EzineArticles and I suggest you do the same. Posting articles that are related to your niche will generate targeted traffic to your site. Focus most of your time on submitting articles. Spend a little time on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter marketing, but make sure you focus most of your time on your main driver.
Tip #3- SEO throughout your site
Search engine optimization is the most cost-effective and effective way to drive targeted traffic to your site. Simply insert relevant keywords into your content throughout your site. This will make your site “search engine friendly”. When your site ranks as “search engine friendly”, it will be indexed over other sites that have refused to do this.
Tip #4 – Create Outbound Links
By including relevant links to external websites in your content, you will increase the chances of your site being indexed exponentially. There is a direct correlation between the number of outbound links you have on your site and the amount of content search engines index. You need to make sure that the links you insert are active and that they are not connected to dubious websites.
Tip #5 – Build Inbound Links
The most effective way to increase the number of inbound links would be to join forums and sites like Yahoo Answers. With Yahoo Answers, you’ll be able to insert a link to your site for every five answers you submit. If you try to send more than that, your account will be closed and you will have to start over. Yahoo Answers has a bot that measures their algorithms, so it’s best to follow the 1:5 ratio guideline I’ve provided.
