I am a firm believer in links. I have written onrepparttar subject a number of times. I'll relate A good example of why I'm so link happy!.

We have a small obscure resource site sitting all alone inrepparttar 133605 middle of one of our domains. The page itself was just a 5 minute project to fill a hole we needed filled about 2 years ago.

To make a long story short, because of links to other sites that 1 page sees 3 to 4 hundred visitors a day every day, day in and day out. The traffic count increases by 30% every month. A New York radio station picked uprepparttar 133606 URL for that page and has it featured on their website. That's why I'm link happy.

The first thing you need is accurate tracking of your traffic. A site counter is not tracking your site visitors. Until you have a valid tracking method to track where your traffic is coming from where it's going, how long its staying, what time it arrived, what time it left, how many of your pages did they visit,what key words brought them to your site, what search engine sent them, what other site sent them ( from your links! remember) your wasting your time promoting.

Until you haverepparttar 133607 system in place to track all ofrepparttar 133608 above and more, allrepparttar 133609 site promotion inrepparttar 133610 world won't help. And why is that you say? Very simply put, you have no earthly idea what's working and what's not!

Mr Newbie gives up.

Since I was a kid, I've always hated sad endings.

So let's assume Mr N. decides to give it one last chance - what should he do?

Well money can be earned inrepparttar competitive field of Internet marketing, but he obviously needs visitors to his website - more than just throwing a bit of money at banner ads, or pay-per-click search engines.

Both can be fine, but what he really needs is a traffic plan.

Firstly, he realizes that there are two main types of traffic - paid for and free.

He makes a list of all ofrepparttar 133604 free traffic generating systems he knows, and researches a few more.

He is amazed at how many good traffic generating programs there are, and how many are so easily implemented. One involves setting his start page differently. With one he has to add an exit pop-up, and with another he has to surf looking at webpages to earn hits to his own.

Mr Newbie gets an immediate increase in visitors to his website. What's more, because ofrepparttar 133605 viral effect of some of these plans, his traffic grows on a daily basis. He also gets a lot more subscribers to his newsletter.

Secondly, he gets a vital component; he gets an ad tracking service for tracking his ads, so that he knows which are pulling in visitors and which ones aren't. He is now ready to tackle paid advertising.

Now that he can measurerepparttar 133606 success of each individual ad, he is astonished at how he can make money. Even though he gets a terrible response rate to one ad, it turns out that he still makes a profit from it. He wouldn't have known this before getting his ad tracker.

Mr Newbie gets amazing amounts of visitors from his traffic plan, from his list of free traffic generators, and from his list of places that are profitable for his paid ads - his business is a success!!

Last I'd heard of Mr.N he was sipping cocktails and sunning himself on a white sand beach someplace. Oh, and he'd changed his name to Mr.G - or Mr Guru, to give him his full title.
