Do you want to get more visitors to your website? Are there any other sources besides Google that can bring visitors to a web site?
The answer is yes and these 9 methods ( the 10th method is Google) describe what you need to do to get more business website traffic without complete reliance on Google search traffic.
1. Optimize your website for Google
Let’s start with Google so that it gets out of our way. I am sure that you all agree that the best and hardest route to get free traffic is by optimizing your web site for Google.
Google holds more than 70% of the search engine market share and a place in one of the top positions of Google search is a great source of free traffic.
The problem is that the competition is huge so you need to have a great web site both in terms of content and SEO if you want to take a part of the website traffic pie.
What can you do? SEO Audit your web site to make sure that it is well optimized for Google and publish good quality content on a regular basis. Ok, now that Google is out of the picture, let’s see from which other sources you can get free traffic.
2. Don’t forget about Yahoo and Bing
Yahoo and Bing may not have the market share of Google, but a top position in either Bing or Yahoo can bring in a good number of visitors.
I have websites that rank on the first positions for popular keywords on both Google and Bing and although the traffic I get from Bing is 1/4 of what I get from Google, it is still a good source of free traffic.
What can you do? The first action you need to take is to register with Bing Webmaster tools and submit your website. The process is similar to Google webmaster tools.
Second, you need to be active on Facebook and Twitter. Bing and Yahoo take into account( in their ranking algorithm) the number of Facebook likes and Tweets so the more likes and tweets your pages have, the greater are the chances of ranking higher in Bing and Yahoo.
With this in mind its a good idea to get your social media management up to scratch, you can do this yourself or if time is short and you need to focus on other things in your business then why not pay someone else to manage your social media for you, either way, the saying ” time is money ” works well.
3. Add your web site to the Chrome web store
