How to Get Traffic to my Website?

By | March 24, 2015

How to get traffic to my website?If you read my post Affiliate Marketing – Can you Really Make Money with it? , you know now, that you need readers if you want to make money with your website. Now you might ask yourself: “How to get traffic to my website?”. If you want to drive traffic to your website it is good to know who your audience is. If you know that you have more options to drive traffic to your site.
So, below you find some ways to get traffic to your website.

1. You need a big load of fresh content

In most cases it won´t be possible to have a website with only one page and get tons of traffic to it. You need to publish content regulary, especially in the beginning. If you publish content regulary the search engines will pay attention to your site, since they notice that you seem to be serious with your website. Sounds quite funny, but it is the truth. So, if you publish content regulary, you will rank higher in the search engines and that means: More traffic!
Besides that it is important to offer your readers new stuff to read regulary, otherwise they get bored of your site and may not come again.

2. Search Engine Optimization

SEO is the short form, you might heard it before. Above I told you that the search engines pay attention to you and will rank higher if you publish regulary. That is just one aspect that will help you to get higher rankings and more traffic. There are a lot of ways to get high rankings in the search engines. Using the right keywords for example is one of those ways. However, there are so many different aspects you should pay attention to if it comes to search engine optimization, I will create an own post for that. (Click here for the post on SEO.)

3. Get into Social Media

I personally do not like social media so much. I mean, it is just not my thing. However if you want to get traffic to your website, social media is very important and I would say you have to use it! Social media becomes bigger and bigger and there are almost no people who are not signed in Facebook or something like that. I mean can you imagine a world without being connected via social media everywhere in the world anymore? I can´t and I saythat without being a fan: IT IS EVERYWHERE. Do you know what that means?
Get traffic to my website!Yeah, it means a lot of traffic. If you share something on Facebook for example, you have the chance to get a lot of traffic. You can share it with your own friends, but you can also share it with groups that might be interested in your website. You see now why it is important to know your audience?
It is not smart to share your website about the best steaks in the world with a group of vegetarians.

4. Paid Advertisment

That is another good opportunity to get a lot of traffic. As I said, social media is everywhere and you have the opportunity to get paid advertisments on Facebook for example. That is a pretty safe way to get some traffic to your website. It will cost you some money, but it is worth it.

5. Online directories

I think that this tip is not very common. Good for you that you read my content, haha. Online directories list names, addresses and phone numbers. However they list web addresses, too. That is your opportunity to get traffic. Register with online directories and you can get some traffic to your website. Some online directories are free, for others you might have to pay. So, do a little research and I am sure you will find some directories that list your web address for free.
That´s it for this post. There are some other ways to get traffic to your site and I will write about those in my next posts.

If you have any questions, leave me a comment below and I will answer your questions as soon as possible 🙂

All the best!

    Hi Pierre,
    I have been building a site of my own and am just getting ready to launch it in April. How often do you suggest adding new content for betting search engine recognition? Your tips have been very helpful, thanks for sharing.

      Hey Julie!

      Good to hear that, I wish you much success with it! I recommend you to publish posts every day if you´re just starting out. After some time you will have a lot of posts and pages on your site, you should then take specific days in the week to publish content regulary. Let´s say you publish every Monday and every Friday.
      You should get a habit when it comes to publishing content since google likes continuity.

    You’re right about online directories Pierre. That was something that never occurred to me, but it makes perfect sense.
    I was also not that big on social media, but since I started using it, I am getting more traffic from it than I was from SEO.
    Great tips Pierre – especially online directories. Thank you
