Website traffic… we all dream about it. Millions of folks arriving to your website, simply clicking every monetized content you give, you making thousands of dollars per day while you sip margaritas on the beach in San Tropez…

And now, real life sets in! It doesn’t just happen that way, but it can. It’s whole lot of effort. Grinding away day after day.

This is the real deal for getting free traffic to your site or blog…

1) Do the job: every day post articles on as many media accounts you have. Pinterest and twitter are great, but uses as many as you have time for. Create a buzz. Post often. Wait, It requires time. Probabilities are you won’t go viral overnight, so the turtle will win the race. It’s not a sprint.

2) Go to Google for information: Attempting to find what’s hot? What is everyone writing into Google and searching for the most right now? Go to Google and type, “Google what hot links”. Yahoo gives you free information on the most searched keywords/topics over time. Type in “Google trends”. Make use of AdWords Google keyword tool, type in Google “keywords tool” to look up words/keywords and how often are they used every month.

3) Incorporate keywords into your title: Example: Title of my elephant site, after looking in Google keywords and finding out the phrase searched the most each month, “Elephants are like Humans”. Then, in your first line on your page, use headline size h1 to reiterate this, type it in again, “Elephants are like Humans”. Try to mention it several times within your page, but don’t get spammy. Google loves “like” content, but hates word spamming.

4) For those who have picture on your page, ensure that you fill up the ALT tags that let you put a brief description of your picture. Use this to your advantage. Avoid just putting, “Elephant pic”. Write it more detailed of the content of your page. Something like, “Elephants acting human”, tossing in the keywords ‘elephant’ and ‘human’.


5) Make an effort not to go off subject too much. Adhere to elephants acting human being without side bars speaking about elephant feed or bananas and how they’re grown. Too much extra blah, blah, blah.

6) Google always likes to see articles of at least 500 words. Press pages/landing pages are hard to rank, usually because there is so little content on them.
