It's one thing to have a web site.
It's another thing to get (qualified) traffic to it.
About 8 years ago I attended a seminar on this new thing called "The Internet." The guys who ran seminar told us a lot of stuff, but there's one thing they said that has always stayed in my head.
They said NET was about to change marketing paradigm.
You see, previously marketing had solely been about "difference." An example. My product is bigger and bluer than yours. Buy it!
The guys who ran this seminar said NET was different. It was about "sharing." "The more you share more you gain." How right they were !!
This was original vision of Internet... "sharing"
now let's get back to topic of TRAFFIC generation.
SEARCH ENGINES are about competition... "difference."
If you're not on first 3 pages of a search engine search, forget it. You're effectively lost in techno netherworld... never to be heard of again.
So, you can do one of two things.
1. Bust your butt and your wallet trying to get top positioning with ever-changing SE's search criteria mathematics OR...
2. FIND A BETTER WAY... through sharing.
Question? "Why do people search Internet?"
Answer: "They're looking for information OR... a solution to a problem."
So, if you'd exchanged links with 1,000's of other ON-TOPIC, quality related sites would you get more traffic?
Yes, you would!! Think of math.
