    I heard that traffic = money, but the problem is, I don't have any traffic.
    What can I do to get some traffic? Can someone help me please?
    SEMrush
    I really want to make some money by the end of this year!

    Thanks.

    Traffic doesn't equal money.

    Knowing how to convert your visitors into leads and then leads into buying and returning customers equals money.

    Good traffic is makting the money ;) I can send you millions of visitors, without earning much. So search for related traffic on your topic.

    All the big sites make their money from ads not leads

    You need to get search traffic build links, sort out some targeted keywords and optimise your pages. Also do some stumble exchanges - not particularly good traffic but it gets your site seen some might return:)

    I have been trying to make money online for about 6 months and have just started to find some success you can read what I've found on my site theres a bit there about on the second page seo aswell Money online

    So what you are saying is that people will not pay for 'untargeted traffic'?
    I think that is ridiculous if true...i mean if they have barely no visitors and can pay and get atleast 100+ a day then surely it is worth it? Atleast their site is getting visits and is more known than it once was. I would almost guarentee that at quite of the 'untargeted' traffic will go back to the site as they will have found it by accident and now find it interesting. Also there is a chance that if they do like it they will tell others and will start virally...

    People pay for untargeted traffic but they pay much more for targeted.

    Target Your traffic. Quality Targeted traffic leads to conversions. Quantity untargeted traffic leads to losing a lot of money.

    Submit your site to directories and search engines

    lol.

    I don't know why you mention that you have heard it. Everybody should know that you need traffic to make money. It's just like any offline business. How can you make sales from a shop if you don't have any customers. It's impossible.

    Anyway there is many good and free ways to get traffic, but unfortunately it takes time to get it and a lot of work which is the only downside of getting free traffic.

    Try article marketing, social bookmarking, etc.

    The web has become so large that unless you spend thousands bucks on advertising. If people can't find you, they can't order anything from you.

    Since I started studying the changes in my online traffic, the effects on adding content to your website and the change in search engine rankings, I've learned the importance of writing what you know and sharing it with others on the Internet.

    Posting an articles online builds the needed momentum of website traffic in the form of increased popularity and other sites linking to your site. As you begin to submit more articles to more directories, your list of places for submitting articles will keep expanding. Most directories usually will let you include a resource box with your name and your website link with your article. Your website address will be found every time someone reads your article, creating more one way links to your site. Remember, the more articles you consistently write and distribute, the more you will become known as an expert for your business. The more you provide informative articles, your business will be given extra credibility which will help you to compete against your competition. Increasing the level of awareness and popularity builds credibility. Increased credibility may lead to requests to write other articles and improved sales of your product or service.

    Please make sure that each article is written to inform and appeal to the reader, so that they are getting useful information from you. Good luck

    Article marketing is and will always be one of the most effective ways to develop traffic over the long haul. Consistently write and submit articles to a handful of the more well known article directories and you will see your traffic grow. As was noted above, there is no big secret or trick. The net revolves on content and links. The two cornerstones of article marketing.

    Article marketing is overrated IMHO.

    Write content on and for your site, and trusted sites within your niche/subject. There are ALOT of reasons article sites will do you NO good..and offer a great way for people to find and steal your content..

    What is key is unique, powerful CONTENT (information)...focus on producing THAT, and forget about placing on a non related site...

    But traffic is IMHO about 99% of the battle..you can almost trip into virtually any thread on dp and learn about how to convert visitors into $$$...but try and learn how to drive traffic...the secrets are not so obvious..proof is in the responses in this thread alone..virtually no one has touched on solid traffic building techniques that are explosive and current trend. If everyone just wrote content or did sig links for hours on end, they would starve. There is more to it than that folks...:rolleyes:
