 Top four Ways to Generate Quality Traffic to Your Website/Blog

Photo Credit- allanmcdaniel.wordpress.com

Obviously, traffic generation is a ‘Must’ for any online marketer to be successful. Everyone (including me) would want to generate handsome income online. However, such desirable income depends so much on the amount and quality of traffic that flows to your site. So, you need to unravel the most successful ways to keep visitors flocking to your blog or website. A good number of the known traffic generation strategies are on their own effective, while some require a little tweaking here and there to make them compatible and most effective for your own type of online business.

Here are four major tried and proven traffic generation strategies;

PPC (Pay Per Click) Programs and Online Ads

PPC is among the most successful tools for traffic generation. It simply requires advertising your URLs or banners on well-known websites. PPC is result-oriented but would put a little pressure on your pocket.

Article Submission

Article submission is also another effective traffic generation strategy that comes with good rewards. Creating unique and quality articles can generate good traffic to your website or blog. Such articles may be duplicated in wide range of websites and also attract several targeted traffics. If readers find your articles irresistible, they are likely to explore your author bio and would irresistibly click on your link. Don’t ruin your author bio by adding too many URLs. Only add relevant few links that are related

to your bio and articles in order to get good result.

Forums

Participating actively and consistently on forums would offer you high exposure and people would be attracted to your posts through your links. For instance, if you are specialized in weight loss services, you should not hesitate to participate on weight loss and health related forums; this way, you will eventually attract targeted traffic (people who want to lose weight and live healthy). The clicks from the folks in the forum will generate traffic that you need. According to forum experts, it is most effective to integrate just one link in your signature. This will help avert possible confusion. Although some folks indulge in multiple links for SEO purposes, it is not the best strategy as it wouldn’t generate targeted traffic.

Video Marketing

A successful video marketing strategy will help erase your past poor website traffic history. Video marketing is a great tool for attracting visitors to know more about your products or services. As the virtual world continues to evolve, video files have become important online marketing tool in addition to articles. Video helps online users to get more and visual information on just anything. If your online offering requires extensive explanation for potential customers to grasp, consider using a video marketing strategy.

However, such video should not be lengthy and should be easy-to-understand. It’s a great way to gain the attention of your potential customers, particularly if your competitors are not using videos. Besides, videos always make their way to the first search result page, your potential customers are likely to find you quicker. If implemented correctly, you can generate traffic massively within the shortest possible time frame with videos.

These tested and proven traffic generation strategies are highly effective. Please let me know if you have other ways in comment section. :-)

  1. Not interested with video marketing. But i do agree it will help a lots to get more traffic todays.

    I have never tried Pay Per Click, but I have heard about it. This subject is never discussed much in any blogs. I would like to know more about it.

  3. Becky DeForest says:

    I think with the Penguin updates, you need to be very careful of doing article submissions. Article dump sites are increasingly penalized with the Penguin updates and that could lead to your site also being penalized. I would recommend guest posting before article submissions.

    Also, I do believe that video marketing is a good tactic. Keyword results often have YouTube videos ranked high, if they exist.

  4. Video marketing is really picking up these days given that people want to have more and more of visual and multi-media content. Besides, Youtube is the second largest search engine and having our video content hosted on it will potentially divert some good targeted traffic on our way!

    Hi Oluwaseun,

    Short but powerful article. It makes me stop and meditate. I like very much when you say ” amount and quality of traffic”. Yes, a lot of people want “amount” and are interested in numbers only. Real marketers know that quality is more important. The amount of traffic will grow in time.
    I want to say something about the traffic methods:

    1. PPC ? Out of the question for a beginner. It is complicated and you must be careful because you can win but you can also lose a lot of money.
    2. Forums: What a great idea! I simply forgot about forums. “integrate a link in your signature”? Thanks for the tip. Very good to know. I will try forums soon.
    3. Article submission? I don’t know … . What do you mean by that? Write articles and send them to sites like ezinearticles, squidoo or hubspot? Maybe you refer to guest posting?
    4. Video marketing? Yes, maybe… . Many try but few succeed. A quality video is not so easy to do. You need to overcome the fear of speaking and showing yourself for the whole world to see.
    For me videos are still an additional tool.

    Thank you for taking the time and effort to write this interesting post.

    Have a nice day

    Superb post, I found it really helpful and informative. I’ve had the same experience as many with Digg – it pops the traffic up for a few hours, and I get a handful of new registrations on my website.

  7. Hello Seun, good to see you hear my friend.
    Social media, e-books publishing is also one great way to promote and drive traffic to your blog. thanks :)

  8. This is great advice, thank you. I especially agree with your second point. I find it very important to continually post articles that have valuable information within them because even if your site doesn’t have heavy daily traffic, you might provide the exact information someone needs when s/he visits; or s/he will read a post and find the page to be a useful reference for future use.

    Thank you for the post.

    Sharing on social media is a great help also. Like many other people mentioned here, I am more for a smaller tribe than trying to reach many people and spreading too thin with so many ways of generating traffic.
    Consistency is also key and builds not only traffic but credibility for yourself and your blog.

    Website traffic is what fuels a website and one of the best ways to get traffic is through video submission because it has millions of users everyday which you can take advantage of to market your products and services. Youtube is one of the most prominent video submission sites that can give you good results for your website and rankings.


  24. Twitter:
    I have always been curious about the effect of one of the cheap press release options. Not that I have anything “worthy” of a PR, but to see exactly what a 100$ PR would do for a blog would be interesting. I think I will google it. Nice list of info here, thanks

  27. According to research conducted by Jun Group (2011), videos that are 15 seconds or shorter are shared 37 percent more often than those that last between 30 seconds and 1 minute. If you make your video longer, that stat goes down. Those shots are only shared 18% more often than videos of longer than 1 minute.

    Yeah I fully agree too , but not everyone at starting point can afford PPC from the beginning. Forums are really a huge benefit for early bloggers to get healthy traffic and some link juice too. Article submission is very professional and indeed attracts very valuable and relevant traffic.


  30. Twitter:
    I won’t try linking my website on article directory sites since these websites have been hit by penguin algorithm and could have negative impact to my site. But I would definitely try the forum and guest blogging same as blog commenting though. =)

  32. From these 4 methods, I am only submitting articles for the moment.
    I am too new to the game to deal with PPC and definitely do not want to lose any money and I would have to think more about how I would make a video in line with my business.
    I like the idea of forums though, so will look more into this method.
    Thanks for the tips as I am always keen to learn more on the best and current marketing tools.

    Oluwaseun, I think it is a question of what keind of blog you have to choose from the methods you propose. For my blog about temples I created 3 videos as slideshows and published them to youtube. And I embedded them in my posts as well. I found that the traffic, that is coming back to my page has not the amount that it makes sense to produce additional videos.
    On the other side I found it very useful to get more traffic by writing comments at other peoples blogs :-)


  37. Twitter:
    Yeah I fully agree too .Really nice analysis about Generate Quality Traffic to Your Blog. Really I don’t think that Article submission is really worth now a days, Else 3 tips are really good


  38. Twitter:
    Articles is good for back links and will improve your page ranking It is no secret that traffic generation is exactly what every internet marketer need so as to successfully carryout their online businesses.


  39. Twitter:
    The issue I see with video marketing is just that the video.
    I can read through rss feeds or a blog and get the information I need or skim through a post, with a video I can’t do either of those and if I don’t have a headset I can disrupt people around me. Please depending on the video format you may not be able to view it on a mobile device.
    some people may enjoy it, but unless its a how to video I skip it.

    Great advice! I have tried and continue to use all of these strategies myself.

    I add my blog posts to a Twitter account that features the blog domain, also use credit mailers, safelists and ad exchanges to promote. I have a video I use to promote the classified ad submission service I sell but haven’t gotten much response even after having it posted on several video sites. So not sure how effective that is for me. Forum posting has given me more traffic and backlinks.

        We have read in many blogs that after the recent Google algorithm updates this is not anymore safe to get links from forums, bookmarking sites or article submission sites as search engines see them as spamming. Still not verified or proved with any case studies though it’s better now-on-wards if we try to avoid these methods as much as possible.

    One problem of making a video that related with your content is that it’s not CRAWLable. So, you need to make some clear description, perfect tags/labels, and a link that baits to your article URL. You also need to put the right title (mostly similar with the title of your article) to make Google search algorithm gives the higher score on search engine result page.
