How to drive traffic for a site?

Discussion in 'Search Engine Optimization' started by shanmugappriya, Jan 4, 2012.

    Sometimes I confuse how can I drive traffic for a site. I have worked on my site for months and targeted some keywords like crude oil price, oil futures, etc. I made careful research before I choose the keywords. I think that the keywords get high search already. However, although my site could stand on Google first page with such the keys, it couldn't get good traffic. I helps people check crude oil prices, I think the information is quite helpful. I don't understand why.

    I know next to nothing about crude oil price and oil futures but I would have thought that those who are in that line of business and who need the kind of information you are providing are already getting it from somewhere they know and trust. If that's the case it may be difficult to persuade them to use your site instead.

    According to me when you choose the keyword, firstly check your competitor site and then select the keyword of your site.

    You must target keywords which have high "exact" traffic. In Google Adwords Keyword Tool External, we get two types of search traffic results, estimated traffic and exact trafic. You should always target keywords that have high "Exact Traffic". Best of Luck.

    Advertise your presence. Besides using links, you must make use of numerous other ways to increase web traffic. Sit down and write a list of all the ways you can think of to get your web address noticed and clicked on

    I agree with SMO - Facebook is the best. Create pages, groups, - join relevant pages and groups and post links like others do.
