How to Maximize Traffic to Your Website

If you are a freelance writer or business owner, you know that your profit can be a direct reflection of how much traffic your website is receiving. Just because your business is solid and respectable doesn’t mean it’s going to bring you the customer’s by word of mouth. If you are not getting the kind of hits to your site that you should, try utilizing some of our tips for maximizing traffic to your website.

Post Relevant SEO Content.

The more pages of content you have on your website, the more likely it is that you will rack up page views from the search engines. If the pages on your website are full of informative, well written content in subjects relating to your business area, your site has a great advantage because you will have visitors coming from many different outlets. Make sure to edit your content with a scattering of direct keywords to maximize visibility.

Create a Link Cache and Use it!

Use a link shortener like Adfly to make and store shortlinks for all of the individual pages on your website. If you have a blog on your site, you can also make links for individual blog posts. Use these links in virtually every open forum available. Twitter and Facebook are the best for this but use your links in other creative places to maximize traffic. Try posting on articles of similar topics and websites of relative purpose to increase targeted traffic.  Also, I do recommend the Adfly site mostly because there is a nice revenue share program with this site and you earn money from posting links to your content that you would have posted anyway.

Blog Blog Blog!

If you have a website, keeping a regularly updated blog can be a great way to generate traffic. Not only does it help to keep expanding the amount of related content on your site but you can also drive views to your site by posting time related and seasonal content. Breaking news and seasonal topics such as holiday pieces and ‘tax season’ topic articles¬† are examples of this kind of writing. Remember to use a touch of SEO in your blog posts too!
