What’s All the Fuss About Traffic?
I’m glad you asked. It’s simple really. Without traffic your site would digitally rot and never earn you a penny of income. Some people might not be bothered about the lack of income on their website, but from where I’m standing, it makes sense to be rewarded for your work. Wouldn’t you agree?
The whole purpose of launching a blog, or website is to get something in return. Usually that something is cash. Why else would you want to spend hours of your time writing articles and blog posts if not to earn a little money in return? There is nothing unjust in wanting to do this. But for it to happen, you need traffic, and a lot of it. This is what this eBook is about. To show you that anyone can increase their bottom line once they generate a steady stream of visitors to their site.
If you are a business owner you have no doubt spent a lot of time and money figuring out how to market your business. You have probably spent more hours then you care to count on things like advertising, and contacting salespeople from the local newspaper, radio station, television station, and Billboard Company. The reason you did this is to figure out which type of marketing is going to be the most cost-effective.
Thanks to the Internet you can now reach millions of people with your product, or service, rather than be limited to your local market.
Regardless whether you own a brick & mortar business, or an online business, you need website traffic to convert readers to buyers.
Quality Comes First
When potential customers are in need of products and services they no longer flip through the phone book, instead they do a web search. That search will bring up a list of websites that have been ranked by their preferred search engine. The rankings are based on a few factors, including the quality of the information on the website and the amount of traffic each site has generated. Sites with good information and high traffic levels are ranked first. As you can imagine, it is those first few websites that get the most business.
Web surfers are easily convinced that the top ranking sites in Google, Yahoo, Bing, or their preferred search engine are probably trustworthy. As such, they are more likely to click through and then go on to give them their business. That is why it is so important to understand web traffic, and to do the necessary work to drive your site to the top of the search list. Just as you want your business to be at the top of people’s minds you need your website to be at the top of the search engines.
Therefore the first step in generating traffic is to make sure your website contains only quality information, and not mass-produced PLR articles, auto-generated blog posts, or stolen (ripped) blog posts from other sources. While you can quickly outrank the original owners with stolen (duplicate) content, long term you will fare much better by sticking to original quality content.
By spending some time to get the framework right, you will see way better results once you shift to the next step – driving targeted traffic
