5 Different Ways to Get Traffic For Your Website


"My website is on-line now. I don't see any visitors. Submitted the site URL to some search engines, but nothing seems to happen! How am I ever going to get that traffic you talk about?"

Yes, getting that initial traffic is not very difficult if you already have another established website. But what if it is your very first website? Here are five different ways to get started!

Before doing any of these make sure that your site does have something substantial to offer. Otherwise the site will just fall back into obscurity after an initial burst of traffic. What you need, is to turn your first set of visitors into evangelists who will talk about your site on forums and their blogs. If your site is just another "Me Too" site, this is not going to happen. There has to be some thing unique or different about your site. A good "Wow!" factor will also help!

Get Links
Get one or more established websites to link to you. If it is a well known site and you get featured at a reasonably prominent location on that site, you will get a quick flood of traffic. A blogger friend or some one with an established website can help you. If you don't have any one to help you, you will need to be a little creative. If your site is software related you can submit your product to one of the known software download sites.

Get Help from an On-line Community
Get involved at a related on line forum and talk about your interests. Make sure to follow the forum rules. Most forums will allow you to include a signature at the end of your post. Ensure that you also contribute something of value to the forum.

Write Articles

There are sites that accept articles for publication. Write a series of good articles about your field and submit it to such sites. Include information about your site at the end. You can even get articles written for you for a fee. Make sure that your articles are original and provide valuable information.

Issue a Press Release

Useful post... getting links works great, it can help a site to top the search engine ranking of a chosen keyword and also provide a direct traffic from the sites that link to it.
Press release also works effectively but most webmasters do not use it, Press releases is way of promoting your business and a way getting backlinks. press release is not done primarily for getting links, but it is possible that other webmasters, copy and use the contents provided and in return, provide a link back to the source, so they might help with getting new backlinks.
