Everyone in the online industry requires traffic in order to survive and profit.
Lately, most people turn to search engine optimization in order to increase their traffic and get some quality leads.
But search engine optimization can be time consuming and sometimes results are very hard to come by.
Although SEO is necessary and is the best way to go about it, there are tons of different ways to get immediate traffic to your website until organic traffic kicks in.
For any company that owns a website, or for any webmaster owning an ecommerce store or a service website, blogging is the key to traffic as well as link baiting and keyword targeting.
Blogging shouldn’t be missed if you are in the online industry. Blogging will give any website the opportunity to present itself to immediate audience, not to mention the fact that blog posts can become viral and attract many links. But for immediate purposes they are far better and faster at attaining targeted traffic.
Most people think that forums are dying. Well, this is not true. The fact is that forums were ones social networks we used to hang at, now, forums are mostly niche specific and are visited only by highly interested parties.
So in other words, forums are a great place to promote yourself and your website and come off as a specialist in your niche and get that targeted traffic and those topic hungry visitors.
Of course we mentioned social media sites and social networks. From the moment they were created, they were one of the best ways to get immediate traffic. But in order to get that traffic you need to participate in the community.
Surround yourself with people from your niche and communicate with them on a regular basis, in return your word will get out and as soon as you publish something new, people will know and they will spread it around.
Although press releases are not good for creating links, they are still one of the best ways to create a hot buzz and get some hot and targeted traffic.
In order to use the press releases the right way, you need to have something newsworthy to offer, so that often intertwines with link bait and new services or products that people will want to know about.
You can also use the other side of news, and that is to post hot news on your own blog or website. The best course of action is to create a news section on your website and regularly post news regarding your niche and your topic. That can be a great way to get some traffic as well as links.
Of course you can use others to get immediate traffic. Two ways to go about it, one is guest blogging and using the power of other people’s influence in your niche to get some decent and highly targeted traffic and the other way is to pay for product or service reviews.
Review Me is a great place to get some high quality reviews. Of course you can start a contest for the best review and offer a prize and create it into a media event that will get even more traffic and more attention.
You can get plenty of highly targeted traffic to your website just from these few tips, and with some creativity you can create a landslide of traffic without search engines.
But the greatest benefit of the above presented ideas is that all of them will help you with search engine optimization and link building and add to your organic traffic.
