traffic to a website
How do you get decent traffic to a website?
What sort of website? What kind of traffic? Are you looking for a conversion of some sort?
There are many things that can be done to the website itself via metatag manipulation, search engine submissions, adsense/adwords, and of course SEO (search engine optimization) the list goes on and on for ways.
These are things that you need to pay for right? I am so stupid when it comes to this. lol
This might sound a bit naive, but I got "Search Engine Optimization for Dummies" out of my public library and learned a LOT. Definitely ranking well in Google is key, that's how you can get piles of traffic. There's a lot to learn about SEO, especially as Google's algorithm is constantly changing. I recommend hanging out at http//forums.digitalpoint.com as there are a lot of knowledgeable people there. Also http//www.seomoz.org/
seomoz is by far an industry leader in SEO. Many hosting providers offer search engine submission as well, which helps speed up the crawling process. I always use 1 & 1 for my web site hosting and they have an awesome SEO Simple Submission tool!
I have a lot of learning to do...
Work on SEO. If you can't do that well... No ones going to reveal their secrets to you. If you work hard, read up Digital Point, you'll learn a few good tricks. I've been doing very well on several websites, and the trick is to stay at it. Btw, care to share your url? I Could provide some Critiques in regards to your on page SEO.
While I agree with just about nothing KnightTrader posts at his libertarian forum, that site is a good example of a successful site in that it has original content, which is highly spiderable, and that the site fills a niche. KnightTrader is knowledgeable, and writes a lot about a topic he's interested in, which draws in readers, and traffic.
