The most important thing in any web business is traffic - lots and lots of traffic. Obviously, this assumes you actually have a reason for wanting this traffic. After getting the traffic you just need to convert it into subscribers and customers . . . but that's the easy part. So, the critical step is to generate a steady flow of visitors.

Here are some tips for generating website visitors:

Here are a few of the most popular way to get traffic to your site - for free:

  • Web 2.0 Methods
  • Article Marketing
  • Video Sites

OK, so how do they work?

Web 2.0

Web 2.0 simply means the new family of websites that have user-generated content. What this means for you is that you can join into the community and add your own content. And because of the highly interactive and popular nature of these sites, Google and other search engines "index" their content regularly. The benefit of this to you is that your content is now considered as part of these sites. So, if you place links to your own site inside your content, you get a search engine ranking benefit from those links. The direct traffic from the Web 2.0 sites themselves is only part of the benefit. There are many more web 2.0 traffic tactics we don't have time to get into here, but this will get you started. flexgreen.asbullet.hop.clickbank Traffic Generation Tips

Article Websites

Article marketing really builds on the Web 2.0 concept. Article directories fall under the category of web 2.0 sites. Just like web 2.0 sites, article websites allow you to upload your own content - as articles. Just as with the other web 2.0 sites, having your content included gives you immediate traffic and search engine ranking. And in addition to this, other users can take your article and place it on their own website. And in return for getting to use your content, these other users include links back to your website that gives you further search engine ranking and more free traffic. Here are a couple article marketing traffic tips:

  • Do your keyword research
  • Write specifically to target these keywords
  • Use anchor text links in the article and the "resource box"

Video

The last of this group is video marketing. Here to we're really looking at a web 2.0 sub-category. And it carries all the same benefits of article marketing. The extra top secret benefit of video marketing is that it's much easier to rank for competitive keywords than in any other medium.

Here's how to get free traffic using video...

  • Sign up for YouTube
  • Make your profile uncluttered by turning off all the modules
  • Add tags to your profile
  • Add a link to your website
  • Upload at least 1 video
  • In the title, the description and the tags for each video, include your main keywords

Putting it all together.

This is a great overview to get your started generating massive traffic to your site.
