How to Improve My Website Traffic

TSO

Do you have a blog yet? I would definitely recommend starting a blog, if you have not already. Update it a couple of times a week with useful content, always making sure to keyword-link to your site.

Are you trying to reach international customers, or only those in a certain geographic region?

With PR 6 you are sitting on a goldmine to be honest.

If you are looking to increase your traffic then I would advise a number of actions you can take:

1. Comment on relevant and popular blogs in your field (connected fields). If you do this enough ( spreading regular comments across maybe 10 different blogs ) then you will increase your traffic in the long run. Be warned that this isn't a quick fix solution though, more a steady build up of regular traffic.

2. As per TSO's advice, set up a blog if you can, and update it a couple of times a week (doesn't have to be more than 500-800 words a time, so shouldn't be too hard). This regular offering of fresh content, may not in itself bring in new traffic, but it will certainly encourage recurring visits. You can also have your friends and visitors digg or stumble your articles (with little buttons under each article linking to digg.com and stumbleupon.com ... if you used wordpress to set up your blog, then there are plugins that would do all of this for you). This will encourage lots of traffic if done correctly.

3. Link exchanges. To be honest I think this will be one of your best methods of bringing in new traffic, but it does rather mean sacrificing possible revenue. A lot of very popular websites would be more than happy to put a link on their webpages in exchange for a link on your webpage (in the footer, or sidecolumn etc ... ) as your domain is PR6. But, it does mean you can't sell the links, and I don't know if you were planning to.

4. Directory submission would work relatively well for you. Just google a list of good directories and sign your site up at the ones you find. This is labour intensive, but can work well.

5. If you have an ezine articles account, then you should put a link to your site in your resources box, and then either pay someone to write a series of short 3-600 word articles for you, or write them yourself. If you then submit them at ezinearticles, and a couple of other article directories, then you will bring in traffic.

6. Forum refferals are an under rated way of gaining traffic, and one that I really recommend. Find 2-3 big forums, perhaps like fws, or warriorforum.com etc... and contribute to the community. Then you can link to your site in your signature, and you will gain traffic.

Lastly, I would reccomend having someone look at SEO options for your website (search engine optimisation). They can review your keyword targeting, and keyword density etc ... and improve your search engine traffic no end.

Sorry :) ... got carried away. There are a load of other things you can do as well really. If you want, feel free to hit me up on msn and I can run you through a couple more ;)

Cheers, and good luck

Both have given good suggestions, just make sure that the articles you submit to Ezine are unique. If they found it on another site you account will get suspend. And you will get zero benefit from it.

Yes, try to get links from high PR sites relevant to yours. Keep working on your site content and on-page activities. Increase as much backlinks as you can it will definitely benefit you. And keep the activities going through which you got PR6 with a little bit more effort.

PR is only going to help you if others want some of that PR juice...maybe offer to write featured stories on others in the industry similar to yours or do banner exchanges since many webmasters will want to have a PR 6 link in their portfolio. Congratz on PR6 but you need to leverage it for traffic now.

You should also try out the new social networking site Twitter. This is new and faster marketing platform for business owners to market their website and products. If used properly you can get unexpected results from it. Try it!

I'm not aware of it. Are you talking about banners there?

No, its like a community site in which you need to make friends so that people will view your profile and also you can dump your links publicly. Also, you can create your business card or image and put it as a background on your profile page. It is great for increasing traffic and google too crawls the site which are dumped in.

I would recommend you read more and maybe try email marketing (NOT SPAM). That is the way you can have that web site promoted via word of mouth

I suppose you like it because of the good content. So that is the key. I suppose word of mouth will be the best way to start promoting that.
I too liked because of the unique and fresh content. Because content is the thing which attracts search engines and visitors. Building the unique content also attracts the other webmasters towards your site to be linked with you and for advertising.

I'd rather say that is more important for the SE then for the visitors
