Ways to Draw Traffic to Your Web Site

You have probably seen all of the articles and ebooks on line that you can purchase to show you how to make money on the internet from your home. Well it is true you can make some money on line with your web site but you first need traffic. It doesn't matter how great of a web designer you are, if you don't know how to draw traffic to your web site no one will see it. Traffic is the key to making money on line, whether you use that traffic to sell something, get people to click on your AdSense links, or just to get their name and email address so you can do email marketing. You need to drive traffic to your web site and there are a few different ways to do it. There are paid ways of driving traffic to your web site and there are free ways to drive traffic.

Paid ways of driving traffic are quick and you see results right away but the once you stop paying the traffic stops as well. Where free traffic will take a little longer for you to generate the traffic but it is traffic you will continue to get 3 months from now. We will talk about different ways to generate traffic for free in this article.

Google web master tools is a great set of tools to see how your website ranks with Google in terms of search results, errors in your code, and other things you can do to improve your listing. I suggest signing up for free Google web master tools and creating a sitemap for your web site that google can look at. This will help google to index your site properly especially if you use database driven web sites. It will take a little while for all of the information to populate in the different areas but once your information starts to populate it will become very helpful information for you to use.

Article writing is by far my favorite way to draw traffic to my web site because it allows me to do something I love and helps me to draw traffic. I simply write articles about what I know and what is related to my web site. Then I post those articles on the hundreds for free article sites on the internet which gives me free link backs to my site. Then if people like my articles they can take them from the article site and use them on their own site again adding to my link backs. I have found this to be the most effective form driving traffic to your web site because it put free information out there and creates links to your site that will remain there for months. But there is one thing about article marketing, you may right an article that generates traffic for a few months but that article will eventually stop generating as much traffic as it did before. So you need to continue to write new articles about new topics to keep everything fresh.

Blogging is another great way to generate traffic to your site and create back links. Check out blogs that are relevant to your web site and comment on different posts where you can add important information. When you post on a blog you will put in your name, email address, web site, and your comment. The blog will usually use your name as who posted the blog and make your name a link to your web site which again helps create unique back links to your web site that other search engines will pick up on and rank your site higher. A lot of blogs entries are being checked by the administrator to filter out spam and any one using vulgar language but most are not doing that and are posting entires immediately. So with that being said we want to keep blogging a great traffic generating tool so spamming is something we don't ever want to do. This will actually cause you to be banned from a lot of blogs and will also cause your website to lose credibility.

These are just a few ways to generate traffic to your web site so keep thinking about different ways to generate traffic. There are multiple ways to generate traffic so just use your imagination and don't spam.
