How to get TRAFFIC on your new site

Written by Dan Richard

Youíre all pumped up! Youíve been working hard on a new layout and have tons of ideas and wonderful miracles to showrepparttar online world. One problem, how do you let people know you exist?

When I first started Pixel2life.com back in January 2004, I already had a large amount of friends inrepparttar 131680 gaming community that I knew would visit my site to check it out, but I wanted to get a targeted audience of visitors. People that would be interested inrepparttar 131681 content I had to offer them. I love my friends inrepparttar 131682 gaming community (some of which Iíve known for over 6 years), but only a small portion of them really cared about design. So through trial and error, Iíve found ways to increase my traffic by targetingrepparttar 131683 proper audience without having to pay for it. These methods donít compare to buying targeted traffic, but itísrepparttar 131684 next best thing. P2L is not a profit oriented website, so I donít exactly have tons of cash to spend on Ad campaigns.

First off, I must stressrepparttar 131685 importance of a quality design and quality content. You can draw as much traffic as you want, but without a quality website that will interest your guests, youíll never make it to their coveted Bookmarks. Inrepparttar 131686 case of design oriented websites for example, there are millions of personal websites that have a few wallpapers, a personal portfolio a shoutbox , and loads of spelling errors. What makes your site better thanrepparttar 131687 rest that would warrant someone to re-visit? Be original, provide quality content, and update often. Itís that simple. If youíre not willing to commit to those rules, donít bother trying to berepparttar 131688 next DeadDreamer or Shiver7. I may write an article inrepparttar 131689 future regarding this topic in a bit more detail, but for now, Iíll assume your site is a smoking gun and ready forrepparttar 131690 eyes ofrepparttar 131691 world.

Before you start anything, optimize your site for search engines. You should have a title, meta keys for keywords and description, and nice full sentences inrepparttar 131692 body of your site. Keyword density is important and with proper SEO techniques, hits from search engines will grow quite a bit. Make sure you customize each page as required. A page about 3D Modeling should not haverepparttar 131693 same keywords as a page about your graphic portfolio. And remember to includerepparttar 131694 main keyword(s) in your title. If youíre not sure what exactly to do, check out these results on Google for keyword optimization: http://www.google.ca/search?q=keyword+optimization&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&meta=

For Pixel2life.com, our first month of operation (January 2004) yielded about 200 hits from Google. After spending a week or so correcting my lack of meta keys and keyword density, I received well over 28000 hits from Google in June. This isnít simply because I workedrepparttar 131695 keywords, but it had a large hand in it. The other part ofrepparttar 131696 puzzle is reciprocating links.

Now I donít work for an SEO, nor do I pretend to be an expert inrepparttar 131697 field, but in my experience,repparttar 131698 more reciprocating links to Pixel2life.com on other websites,repparttar 131699 higher my Google ranking climbs. In some of my main keywords, I wasnít even inrepparttar 131700 top 1000, but after a few months of affiliating and spreadingrepparttar 131701 word, I place inrepparttar 131702 top 5 in many principal keyword searches. Examples include:

http://www.google.ca/search?q=cinema+4d+tutorials&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&meta= http://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&q=swift+3d+tutorials&meta= http://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&q=photopaint+tutorials&meta=

AFFILIATE! Itís important to affiliate and getrepparttar 131703 word around about your site. Do a search on Google for sites similar to your own or have something to do withrepparttar 131704 topic your site is about and askrepparttar 131705 webmaster if they would like to exchange 88x31 pixel banners or text links. If you have a good site, then many webmasters wonít care about your traffic, because they know it will climb in fairly short order if your site is obviously a quality link. I have affiliated with many sites that do not getrepparttar 131706 same traffic as I do because I love their site and I think my visitors will enjoy it too. So donít be shy - just ask! Itís not like theyíre going to sue you for asking. The worst that will happen is you wonít get a response or youíll be declined. Iíve been declined many timesÖ it doesnít hurt, trust me. Donít send a generic cut and paste email torepparttar 131707 webmaster either. Send an email addressed to them personally and let them know youíve actually checked out their site and why you think you could mutually benefit from exchanging links. Be polite, check your spelling and make sure you send them your details including a short description of your site, current traffic, URL and how you can be reached.
