    Hi,
    SEMrush
    I launched my website https://shry.me 1 month ago, I submitted it to some directories and added it to search engines but I don't have any visitors at the moment, I'm using hitleap to get some fake traffic.
    Is there any way to get some real visitors?

    You need to work on brand awareness. Use sites like knowem.com and namecheckr.com to see if your brand name is taken and build on those sites. Thats why they made em!

    You might want to change your domain name. When I see your domain, I have no idea what sort of site it is. You should get a domain that gives the user some idea of what they will be clicking onto. When I see a short domain name like that with no clear name, I get suspicious.

    The best places to get visitors is social media particularly facebook ads. You can target the type of people who will be most interested in your website so its super targeted. Twitter I am finding at the moment an excellent traffic source.

    I ranked my first WWW by set up private blog network. I bought just 6 expired domains and linked to my site. After one month I got 130$ from adsense. I had keyword with 12000 mth searches and visitors could find me on second page. If you going higher in ranking you will see drastic increase in income :). Find on Youtube Alex Becker - he has a lot of usefull tutorials.

    Now to rank website you need links from social media. Private network should linked as well to social media sites.

    You're doing it wrong my friend. I wonder what your site niche is?
    Do you blog or use social media? If not, then I suggest that you start working on it now.
    Both platform will be your best source of traffic.
    If you can invest on ads then go for Facebook ads.

    The interesting part is that the site you want to promote is a URL shortener. Where are other sites promoting this type of service - like bit.ly how did they start? You may want to approach this in a different way - what can you offer people that bit.ly cannot? Bit.ly will blacklist certain sites, does your service do this? You want to get this in front of people that can use the service. It may be good to offer a product that will use this kind of service - like affiliate marketers, bundle it with something else and state the benefits of your service over your competitors.

    Certainly, you may be doing this here as well, but with bit.ly and link cloaking and the ability to buy a domain for the same purpose, the idea is kinda past its prime. Best of luck to you on this one.

    btw - search the forums here - loads of ppl think this is a tough ways to go - with lots of adult site issues and hassles. Again - best of luck

    you have to optimize your ad and use highly targeted audience. Use facebook insight and from there check your audience (check affinity as well)

    Hi - Very nice website!

    I am sure you can find a huge audience for this as you are addressing a need for many marketers.

    What I personally do is to use both paid and free traffic methods. I have a blog as the hub of my business, and I invite people to look at it by posting updates on Twitter and Facebook etc. I also message the email list I am slowly building, as well as inviting people from forums such as this one and WF. I also use carefully-targeted Solo and Banner ads which bring in regular daily hits.

    I would definitely start with a blog and post regular updates. I might also write an eBook on your area of expertise, and give it away free with links to your product inside it.

    Hope this helps
    Richard

    I definitely agree that starting a blog will be very essential for you. When you start a blog it's like the start of the leads funnel. You get prospects who have interest in maybe utilizing a shortened URL and then at your blog you go full force on trying to push your product and service. However, I wouldn't go the e-book route. However, I would write a manual or white sheet on explaining how to use your product to its full potential use And what are the benefits on using your product versus another service like bit.ly ; I hope this gives you a little bit of insight. Cheers,

    Blogs definitely the way to go. If well
    done, it could take on a life of its own.

    There are more ways to promote your site than there have ever been, so traffic should not be an issue. It's how will you make the most out off your traffic and make the visitors come back frequently.

    Still, here's my advice... post content every single day and share it on G+, Twitter and other communities in your niche. It's really that simple! If you have good content, people will reshare your stuff and you will gain some traction. Just keep at it and promote as much as you have time for.

    Don't forget Triberr, Pinterest, Visual.ly, StumbleUpon, Scoop.it, etc. There are a lot of places other than Google+, Facebook, and Twitter to share your content! Put it out there and let people find it.

    Oh, and don't forget blog commenting. Forge some relationships and get yourself well-known.

    I think there should be a pinned thread on this section about " how to get traffic to your website " - because I see this kind of threads popping up almost every day.

    Why would anyone on earth waste their time trying to get fake traffic? I'm not even sure what fake traffic is. Traffic that's not targeted perhaps? Bot traffic maybe?
