    My site is pr3 and still has very less traffic. The following is the information of my site:
    SEMrush
    Name: http://ultrareview.net
    Age: Two months old
    Page rank: 3
    Content: Unique and fresh (100%), absolutely no duplication
    Unique visitors: just 20 :-(


    What do i do to improve traffic, a PR 3 website should get traffic anywhere between 100 to few thousands. But whats up with my site?

    Please suggest as i worked pretty hard for this one.

    Just because you've got a PR3 does not equate to X amount of traffic, so get that thought out of your mind straight away ;) And I noticed your site took a very long time to load at first, that would put first-time visitors off...

    So. where's your social bookmarking? Why aren't you Digging your stories, for instance?

    Second, you don't have that many links - I note 17 on Google. Build more links. Slowly. Get your name about, built your site's reputation, get your name and links out there. Give people a reason to link to your site. And be patient, these things take time :)

    Another thing I'd do is take a serious look at your heading tags...

    h1=Ultra Review
    So what? Make that more meaningful, do some keyword research and get that working for you.

    h2=Search... Join Ultra Review... Categories...
    These are really not important, I'd be inclined not to simply use the style of h2 tags and drop these as actual headings...

    h3=your product reviews...
    These should not be h3 tags, switch these for h2

    Thanks for that big advice. I did make changes after your review.

    first, its loading faster now, since the header was really big, i reduced the size.

    Now if you see, H1 has three keywords in it instead of just "Ultra review".

    But how do i switch H3 tags to H2?

    when you say digging and social bookmarks, what exactly do you mean and how do i incorporate it?

    PR does not equate to traffic.

    You are in the tech niche, which is quite competitive. You have only made 70 odd posts in four months, and if they are about major products, there is no way your site will outrank the biggies so soon.

    Do some link building, do some keyword research.

    Stumbleupon, Digg- they all help when it comes to traffic. Comment on other blogs. Let them see what you have on offer.

    I agree with morph07.

    Social bookmarking helps in getting good traffic to your site.

    when you guys say digg and stumbleupon, what exactly do you mean. Put each article out there for digging? so every time i post, i should let it digg?

    comeon people help here and stop writing short sentences, you all got to be clear. Don't worry, you would get good backlinks anyways :)

    It's not hard - Open an account with Digg, "submit new" story and paste the digg code into your article - that way readers get the opportunity to "digg" your story.

    Although your site has achieved PR3, it doesn't mean that your site will also generate higher traffic. Try to improve your keyword rankings in serp. This will help you increase your traffic from search engines since you mentioned that your site has quality content...

    Try also to bookmark it. This will also help to increase your site's visibility not just to search engines but also to other members of social bookmarking sites.

    PR of any site not generates the traffic, it is to represent the site quality (from Google). To generate the traffic, follow all the seo techniques.

    hi,

    pr doesnt mean great traffic, as you may have pr2 & great traffic instead, try driving traffic another way.

    My advice to you would be to start with some keyword research. By looking at your signature links it doesn't seem like you understand keywords. Your sites will likely never rank well for a 1 word keyword. You should be targeting 2 - 4 word phrases instead. Try this keyword tool: https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal
    Try to find some keywords that get some search volume, but aren't too competitive.

    You should also try to find some good seo tutorials to read. With seo you can't jump head first into it and expect results right away. You have to know exactly what it takes to get rankings and traffic.

    Thanks van. Now yes, you are right when you say that i would not know what keyword is properly. I will start working on this right away.

    however, you said that i should look for 2 or 4 word non competitive words which has good search volume. Now how much search volume is good? I know how to use that tool, but haven't paid attention to it. Let me know.

    Start with long-tail keywords and work your way up to competitive keywords.
