How to Generate High Quality Traffic to Your Site

How to Generate High Quality Traffic to Your Site


In this post I’m going to reveal some helpful tips about internet marketing strategies and search engine optimization.

Everybody knows that traffic is what keeps a blog or website afloat and if you don’t have the right sort of traffic flowing in, you aren’t going to get any returns from your web property. If you look at it broadly, the Internet is basically just a giant visitor generation portal through which giant levels of traffic are exchanged each second and that amount grows all day every day. If you compare today’s web to the web of ten years ago, there are a lot of new and different methods to successfully and ethically generate traffic that weren’t around then. Here are some of the methods you can use to start sending traffic to your website as soon as possible.

Article directories, once upon a time, were a fantastic way to send traffic to your site because it was relatively easy to get your articles published and well ranked in the search engines. But fast forward now, things are not the same. Google’s Panda Update has hit major directories like EzineArticles.com really hard, so gone are the days when you could submit anything, get ranked and drive traffic. When you dig deeper, though, you’ll see that this is a really good thing because all of the crap and the content that has been simply rehashed over and over is being cleaned out and room is being made for high quality content.

So if you want to be able to get traffic from the article directories you need to produce really great article content that, in addition to getting highly ranked, will be picked up and ranked and shared by the ezine publishers.

When you get them ranked by the search engines, Squidoo Lenses are a great way to generate highly targeted traffic for your site.

However, in order to make the most out of a Squidoo Lens you have to give detailed content that is value driven. Obviously you can’t just throw a Lens out there and hope it works magic for you on its own; you need to work hard to promote your websites, you need to work hard to promote your Lens as well.

Participate in forums and discussion boards that relate to your niche, these are great places–though the links in your signature–to generate highly targeted traffic. So using the forums/discussion boards ethically, without spamming them can help you build your credibility and at the same time, it can give you the needed traffic. Perhaps the best thing of all about traffic generated in a forum is its top notch quality; the more you participate in these forums (when you leverage them properly), the higher your traffic flow will become.
