Web Traffic For Adsense
I was reading through some posts on other websites the other day. There was a hot topic about how to get traffic to your site, and I thought I’d share some of the things that people said, beacuse I’ve done it for my sites, and noticed that this particular course of action worked for me as well.
There are so many different so-called “easy” ways to get traffic, that it’s pretty ridiculous. All you have to do is type the word “web traffic” into Google, and you’ll get a host of different programs, websites, ebooks, etc, telling you how to do it. You’ll get bombared with ads for PPC, banners, link exchanges, FFAs, newsgroups, etc.
And the thing about it is this: Most of them do not work. Let me repeat that in big letters to override that 36-point type you read on that web page that says, “We’ll Get You Traffic In 24 Hours, Guaranteed” along with the testimonials that were probably made up: THEY DO NOT WORK!!!
So you ask: what does work? How can I get traffic to my site?
If you haven’t read my first two articles on content, you can read them at my new blog here at axalda.info/blog. Excuse the mess in the blog though, because it’s a work in progress.
But outside of content, we’re going to take a minute, and talk about promotion. What do you have to do to get consistent traffic coming to your site?
I’m going to break this up into a multi-part series. I know that I have another series that I’m putting together as well on Adsense sites in general. I promise, that’s still coming as well. But for now, let’s talk traffic…
I am assuming that you’ve picked a Adsense topic already. If not, I offer a free Adsense keyword list, updated every 2 weeks. To get it free, go to www.axalda.info/topkeywords.html and check out the 500 Top keywords, absolutely free. It’ll give you an idea about what’s hot and what’s not.
1. Get a good domain name for your site.
Your site should have your Adsense keyowrd in the site. It will give it relevance, and give your site credibility if it’s found VIA a search engine. Is it important? If you can get a domain name that reflects the keyword, you should try to get it, but if you can’t, it will probably only hurt you in search engine relevance in the future steps of your promotional traffic plan, as you’ll see later.
2. Blog it, baby!
You got content? Then you need to blog it (for the time being). I recommend WordPress to do your blog. It seems to be the favorite of people in the blogging community.
Now the thing about blogging your content is this, and WordPress makes this especially handy. You need to ley others know you have new content in your blog. And WordPress does that automatically (for the most part) everytime I write a new blog entry. It does what is called a “ping”. A ping is a prompt sent to other websites that tracks the updates of blogs. There are about 50 blog ping sites that are worth adding to your blog ping list in WordPress (or whatever blog software you are using).
This is a list that I use:
The reason why you are seting up a blog is to let others know about your content. You goal is to post new content at least 2-3 times a week. Do that consistently for the next 9-10 weeks, and watch your traffic start to jump! It’s work, but it’s worth it, and it gives you and your site credibility for now, and for the future.
Till Next Time, Keep Building!
