You can pay to increase website traffic. (I've decided to get
the money spending out of the way first). There are many ways
you can pay to increase website traffic; here are three (3)

Before you use any of these paying methods to increase website
traffic to your website, I want you to first examine your website
with your ideal customer in mind. What keywords will they use to
find your website in the search engines? Write them down.
Increase Website Traffic - Technique 1
Now you're ready to increase website traffic with pay-per-click
search engines. Start by using the keywords you have written
down, go to the free keyword suggestion tool at digitalpoint.com
and type in the search box one keyword at a time and press the
The results will show you how many people search for your
keyword each day and also suggest other keywords you can use
and the number of visits they get each day. Write down this
information or create a spreadsheet with the headings 'keyword',
'visits per day', and 'pay-per-click cost'. Your pay per click
cost depends on which pay-per-click search engine you use, the
competition for your keywords and on how much you're willing to
pay for a click.
Once you've finished the spreadsheet, sign up for an account
with the pay-per-click-search engine of your choice and bid on
You will notice that the keywords with the most visits per day
cost more per click than those with less. To get more clicks for
your money the trick is to bid on those keywords which have a
few visitors a day. There is less competition for these keywords
so your bid price should be low.
Increase Website Traffic - Technique 2
When using ezine ads place them in ezines which are related to
your market, which have subscribers who would be interested in
your product or service. You can find ezines in ezine directories
and you should be subscribed to a few of them already - start
Increase Website Traffic - Technique 3
For website ads, use the keyword list you made for your
pay-per-click marketing. Starting with the keyword that gets the
most visits per day, do a search at a search engine. Research
the first ten (10) to twenty (20) websites looking for any
information which indicates that they sell advertising space
on their website, like 'Advertise With Us'. If you don't see
any advertising information look for a 'Contact' page or email
address and send a message asking if advertising is sold on
their website and if so then what's the cost. Once you've
finished this research, choose where to place your ads.
Increase Website Traffic - Technique 4
Search Engine Optimization
To find information online most people go to the search engines
first. If you're not listed in at least the first two pages of
search engine results for your keywords, then you're missing out
on a lot of free targeted website traffic.
To increase website traffic for your website using this technique
here is a free resource for you to help optimize your website so
that you can access this free website traffic source.
Increase Website Traffic - Technique 5
Another way to increase website traffic is by writing articles
for your niche market and submitting them to article directories
and ezine editors. Your increased website traffic will come from
the resource box at the end of your articles. The resource box is
like a 4 to 6 line ad telling your readers who you are and to
encourage them to seek more information on your website by
clicking on your website link, which you will provide.
One advantage of article writing, beside the free increased
website traffic, is that it will make you an expert in the eyes
of your readers. This will increase your credibility and your
readers trust in you causing them to open their minds and wallets
to your recommendations.
Like I said earlier the five (5) techniques I've written about
here to increase website traffic to your website are not hidden
secrets, they're nothing new. They are used everyday by website
owners whose websites are far from deserted. So start using one
of the techniques today and see how it goes, then try another.
