Need Traffic Now? Here are 3 Quick Ways to Get Visitors to Your Site
After working long and hard to get your new web site up and running, you probably have little patience left to wait months and months to start getting traffic to your site and start making sales!
But those search engine submissions are taking a lot of time to bring in traffic. You've also discovered that link trading, joining web rings and posting free-for-all classifieds are time-consuming activities that produce just a trickle of traffic, IF you're lucky.
Moreover, you don't want to blow huge amounts of money on advertising just in case your site doesn't convert visitors into buyers at a rate that nets a fair profit.
You want lots of traffic and you want it now! So, what do you do?
Well, here are my 3 favorite ways to bring visitors to my sites quickly and easily.
1. Blogging for Free Search Engine Traffic
Last but not least, to keep the search engines on my side, I post entries to my blogs.
Search engines like Google reward sites that provide fresh content for their visitors on a regular basis.
Of course, your regular visitors love it too, so blogging has the added benefit of bringing visitors back to your site, as well as generating new traffic.
Furthermore, blog content can then be used and revised to create new articles that is placed on article directories… see the next item.
2. Article Marketing
Articles aren't much different or any more difficult to write than all those product endorsements for your site. You DID write product reviews, didn't you?
If your site is about beer, and promotes a variety of products related to home brewing, write an article called “10 Secrets to Your Best Batch Ever”. Include a resource box below your article that gives your name, a brief description of your site and its URL.
Now start submitting those articles to article directories such as GoArticles.com and EzineArticles.com. You can do this manually or save time by using Jason Potash's “Article Announcer” software to automatically broadcast your article to all the major directories in just minutes.

3. Pay Per Click Search Engine Advertising
The fastest way to get traffic to your site is to buy keywords and keyword phrases at PPC's (pay per click search engines) such as Yahoo! Search Marketing (formerly Overture), Google Adwords and MSN AdCenter.
Google is definitely the fastest PPC account to set up. Simply write your title and description, choose your keywords, make a deposit and you're up and running. Set a daily maximum budget, and check your income and expenses frequently until you ensure that the former consistently exceeds the latter.
You will know within the week how well your site will convert visitors to buyers, which beats the heck out of waiting months for feedback!
You can drive tons of highly targeted traffic to your site in a very short period of time, sometimes doing a great test with as little as $20 bucks. Calculate your conversions, ‘tweak' your site, then re-invest your earnings to drive even more traffic and gain even more sales.
