What ever you do on internet, you must bring traffic to your site. There are many reports, courses and ebooks written about internet marketing. Many of them are offering a magic or secret formula for quick and permanent traffic flow to you site.
But truth is a little different. As you know internet changes every day and so promotional methods and tactics as well. The promotional techniques that worked a few years ago are more or less useless today.
For example let us see a FFA pages. Submitting to FFA pages was something you had to do to promote your site. Today, submitting to FFA pages is waste of time. The Big guys know that and use them in other purpose. They don't submit their ads to FFA pages and classified ad sites, but they own those sites. They use a simple and very effective technique.
Every time when someone submit an ad to that sites, they send him/her a conformation with their promotional message included. At same time they get their links on thousands of other pages which brings them a better link popularity with search engines.
Submitting to search engines and directories is something you must do to promote your site. It's very hard to reach ranking in top 20 listings on search engine or directory because they change their programs for indexing pages very often. So you must learn a lot about meta tags and their optimizing for better ranking on search engines.
On other hand some search engines more then meta tags prefer a link popularity of your site - how many other sites have link to your site. My advice to you:
- provide a good content site and - do you meta tags properly.
Don't spend too much of your time in optimizing pages for search engines because there are still so many other ways to bring traffic to your site. But if you really want a high ranking though, you will need some work to do and some money to invest in a program that will help you to get top rating.
