Keyword ResearchLet’s talk about some powerful ways to get free and automated traffic coming to your website.

Traffic is useless . . . unless…

Keyword research is really the first step in getting traffic to your website. Why? Because you have to target these keywords if you are to have any hope of actually generating traffic for them. This means it’s critical to select your keywords properly.

A couple things to keep in mind when doing keyword research:

  • How competitive are the keywords you’re going after? You’ll have to analyze the competition and see what’s out there for this.
  • Will the keywords you’re targeting bring buyers? Certain keywords are good for generating a lot of visitors who don’t buy anything. You want to generate visitors ready to buy.
  • Another thing to think about is affiliates. If you want to build a huge business, you’re going to need affiliates to help you. So, it’s important to also target affiliates in the keywords you go after.

This is critical to your business, but it takes a lot of time and effort. And hiring an expert is very expensive. And that’s why most people skip this step! The smartest marketers use website traffic software to automate this and other aspects of their business. This way you get this critical step done fast and done well.

OK, now we can talk about traffic…

Only after doing your keyword research correctly can you start targeting these keywords to get you traffic.

Here’s a short list of sneaky traffic techniques:

  • Surveys
  • “Help” Websites
  • Video Sharing Sites

Surveys

The truth is that people really enjoy taking surveys and finding out what other people think. You can use this fact to provide “sticky” content for other website owners. And when they put your survey on their site, they will include a link back to your website. The beauty of this is that it generates website visitors for you with no work on your part. Most people think surveys are just for collecting data, but in this case you don’t even care about the answers. The only thing you have to do is think of a novel question for your survey.

“Answer” Sites

These sites, like answers.yahoo.com are filled with people asking and answering questions for each other. Once again, the main reason for this site is not the reason you’re interested. What you want to do is use these sites to generate traffic and leads for your business. Now, you can do this all by hand – visit a classified ads or answers site and one by one copy and paste contact info. So, if you’re smart, you’ll use website traffic software to do it all for you. This allows you to do the things in your business that can’t be automated and let the software just give you the leads.

Video Websites

Video is huge and sites like YouTube and Vimeo are extremely popular. YouTube is one of the most highly traffic and search websites on the entire internet! So don’t miss out of this incredible source of free website traffic.

You don’t have to be able to make awesome videos for this to work. One super easy thing to do is take an article or website you’ve written. Then just do a screen capture of yourself going through it. I’ve even seen software that will automatically convert an article to a video!

The Bottom Line…

It’s not that hard to get traffic to your websites. Just be a creative and think outside the box a bit. And today there are tons of options for software tools that can help with every part of this process.

Don’t waste any more time:

  • Do your keyword research
  • Next, set up a survey or two with viral appeal
  • Build your traffic traps
  • And don’t forget about video
