The Most Effective Ways to Attract Traffic to Your Website

If you are new to Internet Marketing or Affiliate Marketing you may be wondering why you aren't making any sales. The main reason is probably because you aren't getting enough traffic to your site.

By traffic I mean visitors and without those visitors you aren't going to make any sales at all. So how can you increase your traffic?
First of all you have to make sure you have chosen your keywords wisely and submitted your site to all the major search engines.

Once you have done that you can concentrate on getting more backlinks to your site. A backlink is a link to your website from another site. The best kind of backlink to have is one that has your keywords in the anchor text.

You can get backlinks by submitting your site to link directories, many of which are free, and by writing articles and submitting them to article directories. Another great way to get backlinks is by Social Networking. Be careful here and make sure you are allowed to submit your own site as some of them don't allow it.

You should also create a blog and post on it as often as possible, making sure you have a link of your main site on it and include your keywords in a signature link at the end of each post. Also comment on other peoples blogs and make sure you include a link to your site.

Another great way of getting traffic is by creating a lead capture page that offers something free like information or ebooks. Everyone likes something for free. This will also capture subscribers for you to any newsletter that you may have created in your autoresponder. Put this on your blog and again include a link to your site.

Forums are another great way of getting traffic to your site, make sure you read the forum rules carefully first, many of them will allow you to include a link to your website in your signature.
By doing all of the above you will be well on your way to getting a lot more traffic to your site. Which has got to be good for any business.
