No cost long term traffic is available with a little effort on your part. Sure, you can pay for adwords or advertisements on other websites if you want immediate traffic. but it will cost you. It will cost you over and over as long as you use this method. And when you quit paying the traffic stops.
Good targeted long term traffic that is low cost or no cost is the much better way. So how do you get this long term low cost or no cost targeted traffic?
It all starts with good content. Provide good content and what visitors to search engines expect to find related to the keywords your webpages are written for.
Use meta tags. I know, many will tell you they are of little use these days, but some of the smaller search engines still utilize them in defining your website. Even small traffic can be very good if it is targeted, and especially if it comes at no cost to you. Optimize your pages as you build them for all the search engines. It takes very little extra time.
Actively seek links. Set up a linking program. There are a number of programs on the Internet for reciprocal linking and you can decide who you want to exchange links with. By all means, add linking software to your arsenal of tools. Linking is a big project, and keeping track of links can be an even bigger project, but it has long lasting benefits and it brings targeted traffic. Targeted traffic is the key. Lot of traffic with no interest in what you are offering is a waste of time.
The big advantage to a linking program is that everyone involved is looking for linking partners so you don’t have to hassle to get other websites to exchange links with you. And you can get a lot of links in a short period of time.
To further add to your linking program you really want one way links. One way links will really push you up in the search engines. Writing articles is the best and easiest way to get one way links. Articles will bring you traffic right from the articles, and this is a great advantage. Surfers who follow links from your articles are targeted. They have read your article and have an interest. When they follow your link to your website they are already warm to your content.
On my website I show you low cost and no cost ways to implement and manage search engine optimization, linking and article submission. All of these have long lasting effects in terms of bringing lots of traffic. Links and articles can stay on websites for long periods of time and continue to bring you targeted traffic. Plus all these efforts will please the search engines and in time bring organic targeted traffic straight from the search engines as well.
Getting traffic through linking and articles has the added benefit of insurance. Getting some traffic from many sources is much better than depending on one source that may at some time fail for one reason or another.
There are many other methods for getting bursts of traffic in little time. These methods work well for a time, and should be used as long as they are effective, assuming they are ethical. I am referring to such things as blog and ping among others. In time, and with much abuse, these methods lose their effect. Use these methods as they come and go, but for long lasting effects to get long term low or no cost targeted traffic follow the guidelines in this article and on my website as the backbone of your traffic program. This will continue to bring you lots of low or no cost long term traffic.
