How To Generate Website Traffic On A Budget

Generating traffic to a website is the million-dollar question. If it were easy, everyone would be doing it. In fact, an entire industry has sprung to life over the last 10 years promising to do just that: get you an unlimited stream of traffic to your website. Most of the SEO firms out there are promising inflated results. The reality is that neither you, nor a marketing company, can guarantee you any kind of organic ranking. Even the best reverse engineered plan is subject to change tomorrow. The elephant in the room is this: SEO firms tell you it takes a long time to get rankings, yet they simultaneously say they can adapt to any changes in the search engines' algorithms. Presumably, the reason it takes so long to get the initial ranking in the SERPs is because you have to figure out what makes the search engine tick (i.e. its algorithm), comply with the rules to get indexed, and then spend a lot of time following the best practices that will earn you...

One of the coolest things about buying traffic for your blog is that you control the visitor flow. If you're familiar with old-school direct marketing, you know that you can just tweak your offer (really important) or your headline (also, pretty darned important) to try to get a higher response rate from your ad. Because you don't have to do back-flips with your keywords, you can pretty much write headlines that with grab users by the eyeballs without worrying about how it will be seen by search engines. The result? You get more website traffic. It's ironic, isn't it? Ignore search engines and simultaneously get more website traffic. You...

How To Get More Web Site Traffic To Your Mobile Site

Desktop traffic isn't dead, but there's a brave new world being developed called mobile search. This "new" platform plays by different rules and has a very different user-base than desktop search users. While we might not be talking about physically different users (desktop users are often also mobile users at some point), the search intent is very different between desktop and mobile users. Understanding this will get more web site traffic to your mobile site. Make It Simple One of the biggest mistakes that businesses make is they make their mobile site way too complicated. Instead of having a mobile version of the site, they just use the desktop version and serve that to mobile users. Huge mistake. Huge. Why? Think about it. When you're on your mobile device, searching the web, you might be casually surfing but you're probably looking for something specific. Smartphone screens are, well, small. At least, compared to laptop or...
