As a writer, I am sure that most of you have heard about traffic, search engine optimization (SEO) and even back link. However, do you really know what are they all about and how to use them to their best of their ability? Here I am going to explain a detail what all of them are about and how you can make them to increase your article or website traffic effectively.
Traffic is the amount of readers who visit your article and read them. In this term, they are also known as visitors. The more visitors you get, the more popular your article or website may be. It will take time and effort to build a stable traffic. Traffic building is a very tedious task and you got to work hard to achieve it. Traffic does not build overnight and there are things you have to learn in order to get it right. Higher traffic will also increase the chances of generating more income from advertisements.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
If you want to build traffic successfully, learning the art of using Search Engine Optimization is vital. SEO is something everyone must use in order to get ahead of others. One of the steps is by using Google Keyword Tool to select the high quality SEO keywords as tags and keywords. With the right tag and content, articles and sites will be getting more traffic and at the same time, they will be indexed by search engines quicker than the rest.
With the usage of Search Engine Optimization methods, you will not only gain more traffic but also higher potential of returns from ads clicking. Simply by using Google Keyword Tool, you will be able to select the right keyword and at the same time, you can even have a rough estimation of how much you will gain when someone clicks on the ads.
What is backlink? Backlink is actually the process of promoting articles or website and indirectly, creating more traffic. Backlink comes in many ways which could be simply be promoting by placing RSS link on other websites, being active in forums (and promoting your products at the same time) and even promoting articles with the help of the social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook.
For backlinking, the first move is to create RSS or links on other websites. Readers will be able to see the RSS with a small description and could easily click it to read more on the topic. This is indeed one of the ways to increase traffic for you.
Being active in forum is also important as when you gain popularity in forum by being active, people will follow you and even check on your own articles and website. It is a great way to increase traffic but it will definitely take up time and hard work.
You must also not forget about those social network sites which you can promote your articles and website to the public eyes with just a click. Instantly, hundreds and thousands of people will get the same message and you have created a huge chance to get readership. You should not under estimate the ability of social networking sites as they are getting more famous by the days.
Last but not least, you got to have quality articles in order to attract people to your site. Without quality, you will still receive traffic but they will not come back for more. The main objective is to drive them to your site and make them come back for more. With quality articles, you will be able to create a more stable traffic.
