Written by Jim Daniels

Of allrepparttar traffic my websites have generated overrepparttar 128307 years (literally millions of visitors) ONE traffic source stands head and shoulders aboverepparttar 128308 rest...

Search Engine Traffic.

Specifically, traffic from, and -repparttar 128309 leaders web searching.

Since visitors from search engines find sites on their own,repparttar 128310 traffic is top quality andrepparttar 128311 conversion rate is excellent. And since it is without cost, search engine traffic simply cannot be beat.

In this article you'll discover how YOU can maximize traffic from search engines. And no, I do not have a trick or overnight solution. If you are looking for that, you can stop reading now. But what I will share with you today WILL increase your search engine traffic. I can all but guarantee it. Sure, it will take some time but believe me, it is well worth a little patience.

So let's go...

The first thing to consider is howrepparttar 128312 best search sites determine where to send their clients --repparttar 128313 searchers. It does not happen by accident. In fact all search engines have complex algorithms that determine how they rank sites.

But after allrepparttar 128314 smoke clears, I can point directly to ONE essential component that leads to ever-growing traffic fromrepparttar 128315 major search engines...


Quality is what matters most torepparttar 128316 top search engines. They want to give quality results torepparttar 128317 people using their search engine.

Read that again. It is important to understand. As a webmaster, quality is something you need to be very concerned with. And there are two specific areas where quality really counts...

1. Quality of Content AT your Website 2. Quality of Links TO Your Website.

Let's talk about those two components in a bit of detail.

Quality Component #1: Informative content at your website

A quality website with solid, reliable and substantial content will always do better than sites trying to "trick" their way to good ranking. Think about it for a moment. Why dorepparttar 128318 top search sites have such a huge market share? Simple. They provide quality search results. That's how they got more people use them to find what they were looking for.

Therefore, websites offering lots of quality information are usuallyrepparttar 128319 first sites presented in their search results.

There is no secret to this. And providing quality content takes work. I do it by writing articles likerepparttar 128320 one you are reading now. And you can do it by writing articles for YOUR niche market and posting them at your site.

If your site focuses on collectibles, don't just post up your items and hope to sell them. Instead, write an article about a specific collectible every week. Tell it's history and why it is worth so much. Write about how to tell an original from a counterfeit. You getrepparttar 128321 idea.

In a year you will have 52 keyword-rich web pages (or more) that will help grow traffic to your website. In two years you'll have 100+. And this content isrepparttar 128322 cornerstone of your website.

[Tech note: As you post each article at your website, make surerepparttar 128323 new web page links back to your main page. Also make sure your main page has a link to either a site map or an article listing. That will help search engines find all that great content when they spider your site.]

I've been writing about this aspect of web marketing for seven years now. And I can remember a few years back when many experts were writing, "Don't waste your time on content, just put up a single page sales letter." But what wouldrepparttar 128324 web be like if it were just a network of single page sales letters?

The web is all about information.

Let's face it, nearly ALL people online are here to get information. Not many people want to pay for it either. After all, you can find in-depth information on any subject imaginable. Sure, you sometimes have to pay forrepparttar 128325 best quality information, but if you surf long enough you can get torepparttar 128326 truth of any subject usingrepparttar 128327 World Wide Web.

If you are a website owner,repparttar 128328 paragraphs above translate into a simple strategy. Feedrepparttar 128329 search engines that facilitate locating this valuable content. Create content for your niche market. Grow a website that is information rich andrepparttar 128330 visitors will come. It may take time but they will come.

Of course, there are ways that you can moverepparttar 128331 process along a bit. The best way is to show search engines what your content is about and how important it is. This is done by building...

Quality Component #2: Niche links INTO your website

You may have heard ofrepparttar 128332 importance of getting other sites to link to yours. And yes, getting lots of links coming to your site is important. Butrepparttar 128333 QUALITY of those links is even more important.

I will not get into Google page rank or any other specific algorithms on any search engine. The fact is, NOBODY is privy to that specific information. But I can say for sure, based on experience, thatrepparttar 128334 quality of links coming to your site is VERY important.

When it comes torepparttar 128335 actual links, quality is measured primarily by these two factors...

[X] WHICH sites link to your site [X] Exactly HOW sites link to your site

The first one isrepparttar 128336 toughest nut to crack. Getting quality sites to link to yours is not easy. Naturally, you need a quality site yourself. (More proof of my advice above.) Once you have a quality site in place, you can start getting links to it.

[X] Gettingrepparttar 128337 right sites to link to your site...

Building a link strategy at your website is an important step that will help you more than you realize, especially as time goes on. So make it one ofrepparttar 128338 first of your Internet marketing steps.

But getting links is not an easy task. In fact, getting quality sites to link to your site takes a bit of originality. You can't just slap up a "link to us" page and hoperepparttar 128339 job gets done.

Below are two strategies I use. I invite you to emulate these strategies at your site...
