As you know search engine optimization can be an important way to get free website visitors. The problem is that it can be hit or miss, and a difficult thing to completely understand. Even though you can’t rely completley on SEO as your only traffic source I still advise you to at least make sure you have the basics implemented on your site.

Google has actually created their own Search Engine Optimization Starter Guide as a PDF that you can download and read at your convenience.

To further enhance the SEO you do moving forward make sure you are using social sharing buttons on your site. These are links that visitors can click on to share the content on your site to Facebook, TWitter, Google+, LinkedIn, etc.

If you are using WordPress you can use the Digg Digg plugin or for your static HTML or PHP sites you can use the sharing options available at www.AddThis.com. They also have a WordPress plgin you can use.

ericstipsArguably the fastest and most targeted source of website traffic will come from joint venture partners. These are people in your niche market that have email lists that can promote for you.

6 High Page Rank Article Directories

Getting backlinks to your website from high traffic sites is a great way to not only get more people to look at your website, but also works well for building backlinks to your site. The more links you get the better your site is in the eyes of the search engines.

The problem is that it can be hard to find good quailty sources to post your articles on that would result in both traffic and a quality backlink. The Google search engine in particular views links from high authority sites as stronger than from other sites. So when spending time creating content and working to get backlinks it would be helpful to ensure you are posting your content on the best sites possible.

Below I have researched and found for you 6 article directories that you can start creating content for and submitting to generate content. You may have heard of many of these, but I am sure there will be one you hadn’t heard of yet.

Browse this list below.

www.thefreelibrary.com (PR7)
www.selfgrowth.com (PR6)
www.ezinearticles.com (PR6)
www.netymon.com (PR6)
www.articlecity.com (PR6)
www.articlesbase.com (PR6)

There is debate out there that search engines are discounting backlinks from article directories. I personally come from the school of thought that a link to your site is a positive one in almost all cases. So you may not get the huge search engine boost you think, but the article is on a high traffic site. A few of these sites I didn’t know about either until I did my research on them. One of them that I had never heard about generates over 1 million unique visitors every month. So even if the backlink doesn’t work you still could get some people that visit your site from the article.

Either way article marketing is still a viable way to generate traffic.

Update: Below I have a link to a website which ranks the top 50 article submission sites based on traffic volume and page rank. This is a resource that you don’t want to be without!

5 Steps To Create Web Traffic on Demand with Your Own Traffic Machine

One of the biggest reasons online businesses fail is from a lack of real, targeted traffic. We all know this is true because without people looking at your website or seeing what you have to offer it is impossible to make any money. The great news for you is that if you are willing to put in some decent and focused effort there is plenty of simple and effective ways to get the traffic you need to make sure your business is a success.

In this article I am going to detail the process to creating your own traffic machine which can really get people going to your site in nearly any niche market. This can apply for online retailers or local businesses. So anyone with a website that takes action on what I am covering can see some great results!

Step 1: Generate Keyword Ideas

You need to be focusing on keywords or keyword phrases that your target market is going to be looking for to find what you are offering. If you are selling pet products than you would search for keywords related to the products you carry. If you are a local, primarily offline business, think of the niche market you are in and how your customers would find you. As a chiropractor, for example, you could find keywords related to back pain relief, car accident injuries, etc.

You want to look for keyword phrases that have a fair amount of searches so you know you are targeting keywords that people are looking for. A good rule of thumb is to target keyword phrases that have more than 500 searches per month.

The free tool that I recommend for this research is the Google Adwords Keyword Tool.

Using that tool create a list of 20 topics or keyword phrases related to your business.

Step 2: Write Articles

Next you want to write articles based on each one of those main keyword phrases that you have researched. So in total you are writing 20 articles. Alternatively you can outsource article writing for around $5 per article through www.elance.com or www.getafreelancer.com.

The articles should be between 400 and 500 words in length, and each article title should start with your main keyword phrase. This is very important.

So if your article is about back pain relief than one example of a good article title would be like, Back Pain Relief – 7 Steps to a Pain Free Back

Notice how I fit the keyword phrase into the article title, this is very, very important. Just focus on writing solid content within the body of your article and you will be all set.

Next, make sure you create a resource box or author bio box that will encourage people to visit your website. Each article should have one of these with a link back to your site.

Step 3: Submit Articles to Article Directories

Now it is time to submit the articles to several top online article directories. I recommend you submit them to the following five article directories:

1. www.ezinearticles.com
2. www.goarticles.com
3. www.articledashboard.com
4. www.articlesbase.com
5. www.ideamarketers.com

Make sure that your title for each article contains your keywords and then make sure you have a resource box going back to your main website.

Step 4: Create Network of Web 2.0 Properties

With the other set of 10 articles you want to create 5 pages at www.Squidoo.com and 5 pages at www.hubpages.com. You will want to link these pages together along with linking to your site. So on these pages within the content you can add a link to your website and also a link to another page you have setup on Squidoo.com and Hubpages.com. This will help those pages rank in the search engines.

Now you have a total of 50 article submissions being done and 10 web 2.0 properties that makes a total of at least 60 different places your content can be found for now.

Step 5 (Optional): Write 5 More Articles

This next step is optional, but you can write or create 5 additional keyword rich articles and add them to your website with each article being a new page on your site. Just make sure the title tag for that page is the main title of your article which should be keyword rich.

This will add more chances that Google will also find your site. Now, you can do this with 10 more articles or 50 more articles. Obviously the more you do, the more results you will get.

Now simply go out and repeat this process until you are seeing the desired results you are hoping for.
