Written by Rick Rouse

The number one question among webmasters is "How can I increaserepparttar number of visitors to my website?". There are several ways, but adding content to your site isrepparttar 138793 most effect method there is. This article explains why and how to do it.

Like all webmasters,repparttar 138794 reason you created your website inrepparttar 138795 first place is so that people (visitors) can see what you have to offer. Maybe you simply wish to share your thoughts and opinions on a weblog. Perhaps you want to use your website as a "billboard" for your brick-and-mortar business. Or maybe you want to sell tons of widgets and make a living onrepparttar 138796 Internet.

Whatever your motivation for building your site, you won't achieve your goals without building a steady flow of traffic to it! There is one "best" thing you can do that will help you increaserepparttar 138797 flow of visitors to your site (and keep them coming back time and again): Add new content on a regular basis.

How does adding new content help build traffic? Here are three ways:

1 - More content helps boost your search engine rankings, and higher search engine rankings mean more visitors will "find" your website when they search for what you're offering. In general, larger sites fare better inrepparttar 138798 search engines than smaller sites, for various reasons.

2 - More content (meaning more pages) provides more "roads" into your site fromrepparttar 138799 search engines. Having hundreds or thousands of pages means there are hundreds or thousands of varied search terms that your site will come up for inrepparttar 138800 search results. This means instead of your site being "found" when just two or three relevant searches are made, it will be found under hundreds or thousands of search terms!

3 - Fresh content will keep your current visitors coming back to your site to see "what's new". Any business owner will tell you it's cheaper to keep a customer you already have than it is to acquire a new one. The same principle applies onrepparttar 138801 web.

How can such a great site not naturally takerepparttar 138625 internet community by storm?

Done in combination with a long term marketing strategy, they can help grow your list of visitors and more importantly keep them. Here are a few ofrepparttar 138628 immediate steps that can be taken:

Buy Traffic – This is probablyrepparttar 138629 easiest and a very cheap way to go. The way it works is that companies purchase expired domain names and redirectrepparttar 138630 traffic straight to your site. Other companies operate pop-up or pop-under technology that displaysrepparttar 138631 website you want visited. Often you can start seeing results from this in 48 hours and many thousands of visitors can be had for only a few dollars outlay. Beware! This can really send your stats throughrepparttar 138632 roof and is very easy, but there are pitfalls. Untargeted traffic is quite low quality unless you have something truly great to show a general audience. In most case you are far better off purchasing targeted hits to your site’s area of interest. It is only logical that a travel site would want people looking for travel information! It is worth spending a few extra dollars.

Post on POPULAR, ESTABLISHED Forums – Do some research and find out what arerepparttar 138633 most popular forums in your area. I am talking about forums with at least 1000 members and preferably many more. Beware of forums that reward people for posting as they may indeed have many members, but few of them post more than once or twice and even fewer read other people’s posts. (You want forums with many more posts than members – this indicates that members actively return, read and post atrepparttar 138634 forum). Most forum moderators have no problems with users having a “signature” atrepparttar 138635 end of their posts. This is where you can list your website URL. DO NOT SPAM people’s boards with commercial messages. Post helpful or interesting topics and respond to other people’s queries. Posting solely to advertise your site will get you banned from most forums. This technique can be worth many thousands of visitors to your site quite quickly if done properly.
