The more traffic you have to your site, the more visitors you get, and the more often you are able to expose new people to what you’re doing.
One of the fastest ways to get traffic to your site is by getting outside websites to link to you. When other sites link to you, you benefit from real human visitors clicking through to your site.
But there’s another huge benefit – called “backlinks” – that should never be ignored.
The more outside sites that link to your site, the more “important” the search engines thing you are. The more important the search engines this you are, the higher they will place your website in the search engine result pages. The higher you are ranked in the search engine result pages, the more traffic you will get from the search engines. People will search for a term, see your site in the results, and click through to visit your site.
So how do you get other sites to link to you so you can benefit from more traffic plus increased “importance” in the eyes of the search engines?
- If you have friends that have a website, ask them to link to your site.
- Submit articles about your site’s topic to article directories like EzineArticles.com.
- Submit your site to directories like Dmoz.
- Make certain you add your website URL to your profile page on sites like YouTube, MySpace, Facebook & Pownce.
You’ll get a boost in traffic from visitors of all of these sites clicking through to your site, and you’ll benefit from higher search engine ranking (and traffic) because the search engines will see all the sites linking to you and will increase your rank, or “importance” in their listings.
