A few years ago I wrote a series of articles for a web site about Affiliate Marketing for a nice couple named David and Margie and I'll be adding them here over a period of time. I hope you'll enjoy them and that you'll learn something new from them too. Affiliate marketing can be very profitable if you know what you're doing, if you're patient, and if you work hard at it consistently over the long term. I've learned that over a period of time it can actually replace a large portion of your "regular job" income. And yea, just how cool is that! Whit
Content is king - generating free visitors to your web site
Traffic is King! That's what I learned very early on, without it you might as well be the owner a brick and mortar 7-11 convenience store out in the middle of the desert without a road in site. No visitors (customers) to your site or blog means no business in which case your web site is really just a big pretty business card for you to be proud of and for your friends and your family to gawk at.... it's that simple, no traffic, no business, no money. Uhhhh, you might as well go send a tweet that you're broke again, go update your face book page, and then go watch TV. Wait, don't do it... There is a solution to changing your no traffic piece of web site art into a traffic rich web site business that's earning you money day in and day out - you just need to know what we did, what works and how you can do it too.
There are many ways to generate free traffic and visitors to your web site or blog. Some of the methods we're going to tell you creates "highly targeted" visitors (i.e. you sell affiliate books and they are people looking for affiliate information), some are "general traffic" methods which means they weren't initially looking for your information but not that they're at your site they're interested enough to poke around to see what you have.
And then there's what I call junk traffic, this traffic just happened upon your site while they were doing something else such as searching for information, or reading information somewhere else and clicked out of curiosity. These visitors will most likely pop in then pop out although they might "save" your site to their desktop or their favorites folder and maybe come back on another day.
There's is no magic button and you won't be able to click your heels three times and see the traffic magically appear. The reality is that in order to get free traffic you'll at least need to give up a little bit of your time in order to get it. The good part is at least you won't be paying for it (with money) so that's a big plus.
If you already have a site or blog and you know you're not getting the traffic that you should then its time to get busy. In these very competitive times you need to be a step ahead of your competition, yep, increasing your traffic flow should have been done starting yesterday. Never think of today and tomorrow as a starting point for making your site traffic laden, it should always have been yesterday.
Take a break from this SEO discussion and... check out your neighbors!
To assist you out in generating free visitors to your site, here are our recommendations:
Invest in good content within your site or blog which will then (with some tweaking on your part) bring in free "targeted" traffic from the search engines
Many of the search engines to include the biggie Google will scour your pages (generally called crawling or spidering via a "robot") to see what content you have so that when a person does a search... if what you have matches what they're looking for then your listing will be available on the search results page for them to click on and visit your site. Yep, this sounds simple enough however it's much more complicated then that and it's not quite that easy. The page that you're listed on within the search results makes the biggest difference in the overall amount of free traffic you'll receive. Getting listed on the first page of Google and you're assured a consistent stream of free traffic, listed on the 437th page and you are not assured of anything. So how do you get on the first page or as a minimum on one of the first three pages, it takes time and effort however it'll be well worth it when you do.
If you want the "full meal deal" on how Google can directly help you as a webmaster we highly recommend you visit their Webmaster Central section where you can learn more in one hour then you ever thought possible. We recommend you actually spend many hours there whenever possible, remember it's the knowledge and education you gain today that will ensure you have enough free traffic inbound to your site that your affiliate marketing efforts will be very well rewarded.
Hey, but don't forget to come back here, we have much more to cover!
Because the Google search engine's primary goal is to get the person searching for information the most "relevant" information they can... Google wants YOU to be listed in their search engine, it's not a special club, they want you.
If you'd prefer not to visit the Google webmaster section via the links above but would rather get a better feel for the Google Webbmaster training via their series of video's, then click below. Note: There are a total of 9 videos's which run back to back, so watch the ones you'd like, or skip forward - enjoy.
