Welcome, Overrepparttar past five years I have learnt many tricks to gain visitors. Many are great and some are negative, even getting me excluded from major search engines. For your benefit I have comprised a list of six free, easy and simple ways that may double or even triple your visitor count within Three Months.

1: Get listed in free directories: (Open Directory Project) is one ofrepparttar 141588 top places to get listed, if you get your site listed. Up to 20 other websites copy their directory, you now haverepparttar 141589 opportunity to have your link on many more websites.

2: Find out your competitors link popularity:

Do a simple search on google and find out who your competitors are. Then go to and try to get your website included on many ofrepparttar 141590 sites you find.

3: Find quality and reliable links:

I have found that less than 1/10th of my visitors come from search engines. Quality links arerepparttar 141591 key; websites with a large volume of customers are often your best ally. Related websites to your own site is generally best, this is often said for a better search engine ranking, but I advise related sites purely for a targeted audience.

4: Find out where your competitors visitors go: is a brilliant website, when you find your major competitors you can search their domain on You can find out a lot of information about their visitors, where they come from, how many visit and best of all what other sites they visit that are related to your competitors.

About a month ago I hadrepparttar privilege of giving a demo ofrepparttar 141555 next version of Sonic Page Blaster torepparttar 141556 attendees at Yanik Silver’s “Underground Online Marketing Seminar”. I fielded a couple questions afterwards that bear a better treatment than I could manage onrepparttar 141557 spur ofrepparttar 141558 moment and in less than 60 seconds.

Q: If we create “feeder” sites that point to our main sales page or “money site”, won’t they be adversely affected by Google’s sandbox?

A: Let’s first define what we mean byrepparttar 141559 “Google sandbox”. Overrepparttar 141560 last seven months or so it has become apparent that new web sites do not tend to show as high a page rank as older established sites. The reason for this is not a raw prejudice against new sites. According to my sources, it is instead an attempt byrepparttar 141561 search engine giant to discountrepparttar 141562 effect of reciprocal linking, especially paid linking. If links cost you money and they have no immediate effect, chances are most people will abandonrepparttar 141563 practice.

And that’s exactly what Google is hoping for. Frankly, I understand and support this move. The reason is that Google’s motives and mine coincide. Google is trying to make sure they returnrepparttar 141564 most relevant and highest quality results available for a given search term. If I haverepparttar 141565 most relevant and authoritative web site for a given subject that encompasses those same search terms, I want Google to return my results atrepparttar 141566 top ofrepparttar 141567 heap. I don’t want spammy link farms to change this.

The key is quality. Really, over time,repparttar 141568 best search engine marketing strategy is to create a killer web site. Wouldn’t it be nice if allrepparttar 141569 energy we direct towards search engine optimization could instead be focused onrepparttar 141570 quality of our web site? Google feelsrepparttar 141571 same way, believe me, andrepparttar 141572 refinements they make to their alogorithms are designed to move in that direction. For that reason alone,repparttar 141573 quality and focus of your web site is your best long-term SEO play.

Q. Could automatically generated web pages be penalized as "spam" by search engine spiders?

A. I call Sonic Page Blaster “SPB” a lot, and I definitely don’t think ofrepparttar 141574 “S” as standing for “spam”. Onrepparttar 141575 contrary, Sonic Page Blaster simply saves you time in creating search engine-friendly web pages that contain really good articles that pertain exactly torepparttar 141576 content of your web site. No “automatic” content system can findrepparttar 141577 content that best fits your niche. You need to either write or findrepparttar 141578 articles that will help your web site visitors or subscribersrepparttar 141579 most. I know that a few ofrepparttar 141580 seminar attendees I talked to had spam-filled stars in their eyes when they saw SPB churn out a bunch of pages atrepparttar 141581 push of a button.

Trust me, you don’t want to go there. Google will eventually punish you in a big way.

Here are some rules that I believe will not only help your search rankings, but also driverepparttar 141582 right kind of traffic to your primary web site (atrepparttar 141583 seminar Jeff Johnson called these “money pages”).

1. Do not post duplicate content at multiple web sites, especially if you own them all, if they are onrepparttar 141584 same server, and if they link to each other. SPB makes it so easy to generate article mini-sites, why would you want to duplicate content, anyway? With SPB you have a huge advantage over those who have to manually create web pages. Use your advantage. Create many web sites that focus on narrow subject matters, each having their own set of articles.
