Increase Online Traffic - What NOT To Do

Written by Anita DeFrank

Since everyone is so obsessed with ways to increase our website traffic (and of course we should be) people often are quick to jump at anything that might help. We are always talking about ways to increase search engine traffic. But, what about what we shouldn't do? The following I'll share a few tricks that you shouldn't be doing.

--->Do Not Buy Traffic This is one ofrepparttar oldest scams aroundrepparttar 127864 internet. I'm not talking about PPC programs; that's a whole other article. The ones I'm talking about arerepparttar 127865 ones that 'guarantee you' 10,000 visitors for $10.00 (just an example). Do you really think that's possible? Not only do they try to sell you visits; they also try to say you'll get such and such amount of sales. In plain words…BULL! Besides, there is NO company that can guarantee you any amount of sales. Sales depend onrepparttar 127866 demand of your product/service, price and of course your ad copy. Plain and simple…Buying traffic is a scam. Don't do it.

--->Don't Bother with Top Sites These quickly become a big waste of your valuable time. (Remember, your time is valuable and time IS money.) Everyone else listed there with your site is doingrepparttar 127867 exact same thing you're doing. Let me guess, every day you are clicking on your link and voting for yourself and/or you are sending out tons of emails (possibly spam) begging all your friends to vote for you. Am I right? Don't waste your precious time doing this. Instead spend your time working on your ad copy. It'll take you much further.

--->Submitting Your Site Myths You don't need to submit your site to search engines. Submitting your site to search engines does not increase your search engine rankings. The important search engines will index a properly built website.

--->Web Rings Web Rings can be fun but, you very well could be sending your traffic AWAY from your site. You are giving your visitorsrepparttar 127868 opportunity to click away to another site. You need to be concentrating keeping your visitors and selling your product or service. Besides that, a lot of people breakrepparttar 127869 web rings. These rings are set up to be all aboutrepparttar 127870 same topics. You are giving your visitors direct links to your competitors.
