10 Ideas For Driving Traffic To Your Website
1.Start a forum on your website – An active forum can quickly begin ranking for long-tail keywords. They’re also great for decreasing your site’s bounce rate, increasing time-on-site, as well as building a community.
2.Submit your blog posts to StumbleUpon – It works!
3.Optimize your existing posts – Comb through your old posts to make sure they have unique and relevant title tags, URLS and meta descriptions.
4.Build connections with others in your area – I know this sounds cliché, but building personal relationships with other bloggers in your niche will often result in organic inbound links and referral traffic to your site.
5.Contact influential bloggers – When you write a groundbreaking or newsworthy post, notify influencers in your field. You may be surprised at how many link back to your post.
6.Share your blog posts regularly on Facebook – Post a short excerpt from your posts to entice them to click through.
7.Comment on industry blogs – Become a regular commenter on a popular blog in your niche to help drive referral traffic and to establish relationships with other bloggers.
8.Make proper use of categories – If you haven’t already organized your content into relevant categories, now’s the time. Categories are great not only for SEO, but for helping your readers find relevant content.
8.Ask a well-known blogger to guest post on your site – They’ll likely share the post with their audience, driving traffic to your site.
9.Focus your energy on strategies that are working – You don’t have to do what everyone else is doing. Study your analytics to see your main traffic drivers, and focus on your energy on these areas.
10.Make sure you have every relevant keyword you can think of on your site – I’m not talking old-school keyword spamming here. I’m talking about focusing on topical content; and making sure you at least have the chance of being found for all your relevant keywords, no matter how obscure they may be.
