What can you do to stimulate traffic to your web site? You can find thousands of articles on web site promotion on internet, but I have summarized a list of items to consider:
>>>Submit Page to Search Engines The most important search engines that robotically "spider" or index your site are: AltaVista, Excite, HotBot, Lycos, Infoseek, WebCrawler, and Northern Light.
>>>Submit to Yahoo Yahoo is most important listing of all -- though it is technically a directory, rather than a search engine. But be very careful, and follow their instructions.
>>>Submit Page to Other Directories These do not help much, except to increase perceived "popularity" of your site by major search engines.
>>>Include URL on Stationery, Cards, and Literature Make sure cards, stationary, brochures, and literature contain your company's URL.
>>>Promote using traditional media Do not discontinue print advertising you have found effective, but be sure to include your URL in ads you purchase. Catch readers' attention with ad, and then refer them to a Web page where they can obtain more information or perhaps place an order. Consider other traditional media to drive people to your site, such as direct mail, classifieds, post cards, etc.
>>>Develop a Free Service This can be very rewarding in increased traffic to your site. Make sure that your free service is closely related to what you are selling so visitors you attract will be good prospects for your business.
>>>Request Reciprocal Links Find complementary web sites and request a reciprocal link to your. Build a separate page where you put links to other sites so that you do not send people out back door as fast as you bring them in front door.
>>>Request Links from Business Link Sites Especially if you offer a free service, you can request links from many of small business linking pages on Web. E-mail site owner or webmaster with your site name, URL, and a brief 200-word description of what you offer there.
