Proven Method To Increase Your Website Traffic
As an online home business owner you will spend most of your time working on methods to drive targeted traffic to your site as well as looking for more ways to increase your website traffic.
If you are running your own online home business, this will mean that you will spend most of your time working on methods to drive targeted traffic to your site as well as looking for more ways to increase your website traffic.
Using a blog is a great way to attract visitors and add unique content to your site at the same time. By regularly posting unique content on your blog will also keep the search engine robots regularly visiting your blog.
However, to be effective in driving traffic to your blog you will want to make posts that are well optimized for the search engines.
Each blog post you make in effect will be another page added to your site, so the first thing you need to do is your keyword research. Put the main keyword phrase that you have optimized your website for into a keyword tool, such as the Google Adwords Keyword Tool and select and download a list of low competition, long tail keywords with just a few monthly global searches (anything from 30 – 300).
Every time you make a post on your blog you will select a different long tail keyword from your list to use in your blog post. So be sure to mark off the keywords from your list as you use them.
Using this method will make it much easier to get your blog posts onto the first page of the search engine results. As you are using keywords with just a few monthly global searches you may only get a few visitors for each post, but if you post 3 or 4 times a week using a different keyword phrase, your traffic will soon mount up.
Place the keyword phrase in the title of your blog post, 2 or 3 times in the body of the post, bolding one of them, and also in the tags. If you add an image to your post place the keyword phrase in the “alt” tag as well.
Be sure to monetize your blog posts. An example of this would be adding an affiliate link to a product you are promoting. Also it is important to tell your visitors what to do at the end of your post. By that I mean adding a “call to action”, either ask them to sign up for your newsletter, click on an affiliate link or banner of a product you reviewed or comment on your post.
Following this proven method to increase your website traffic will also increase your online income.
