Ways to Create Unique Traffic

Introduction:Web traffic can make or break any online business, article, or any other cyber venture. Little to no traffic to a website is like having a brick and mortar store with no customers. You can have all the latest bells and whistles but with no traffic, your site, blog, or article is doomed to fail.

Here are five very effective ways to create traffic for to your URL.

  • 01

    Backlinking

    Back-linking is primarily used by Search Engines to boost traffic to your website or blog. The easiest way to back-link is to post a comment to a blog that allows you to enter your site's URL. Once you enter the address of your site, the back-link is created. It may take a week or two for the link to actually appear, but you will have easily created a back-link.

  • 02

    Update Your Blog

    It's important to update your Blog or Website on a regular basis. The more new content you have, the better chance your site has in moving up in the rankings. Keep tabs on your Google PageRank by downloading the Google toolbar at toolbar.google.com. Select the "Display Google PR" option and you will be able to view the Page Rank of any site you visit including your own.

  • 03

    Ping Your URL

    When you update your site or blog, make sure you "Ping" your site. Pinging is simple, go to pingomatic.com (or any of a number of other sites that allow you to ping your site for free), enter your blog or site name; enter the URL of your Home Page; RSS feed URL is optional, click in the boxes to place a check next to the "services to ping," and click "Send Pings" and you're done.

  • 04

    Forum Participation

    When you comment on forum post that allow you to leave your site address, you create a backlink.

    Do not spam forums because not only is spamming immoral in the cyber world but you will more than likely be banned from the forum, as well you should be. Make your comments relevant to the topic, and this creates a win-win for you and the forum owner.

  • 05

    Link and Banner Exchange

    Exchange banners and links with your friends and associates on the Internet. Most of us have Twitter and Facebook accounts. If you have approximately 500 facebook friends and a few hundred Twitter followers, that's potentially 800 people you have the opportunity to interact with.

    Of those 800 people, at least a fourth have a blog or website. Reach out to those 200 people and attempt to exchange banners or links. Many people are reluctant to do this but don't realize the value of mutual association on the Internet. If we exchange links this benefits me and it benefits you, and personally, I can't understand why more people don't utilize this method of free advertising.

Calling all Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn/MySpace friends? Calling all social networking friends, where are you?

    Thanks for the great list. I spend half my time writing and half my time promoting. Over time it becomes easier as a name was made for myself.

    Thanks hummingbirdee, I've utilized the trial and error method, for the past 6 years, and the methods mentioned above, along with the supporting link, "How to Increase Web Traffic," if used, will definitely increase your site visitors. Those individuals and company's that charge the excessive fees for SEO are taking advantage of those who do not know. If you have the time, and are consistent, you can do for free, what these people are charging thousands of dollars for ..
