How to Get a Gold Rush of Traffic to Your Website

Google Buzz

It’s the million dollar question these days – how to actually get enough traffic to your website. We get asked this so often that we wanted to address some helpful tips we’ve learned as we’ve explored SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Now it’s not required that you’ve been doing online marketing since Moses to be a real competitor in SEO. All that’s required is a little knowledge, dedication, and consistency. Below are some helpful tips you can implement to get a “Gold Rush” of traffic coming to your website for free.

1) Keywords: The first thing that you need to determine is which keywords you are going to optimize your site for. Meaning, which keywords are most relevant to the topic of your website and will have the greatest number of potential customers searching for them on a daily basis. For SEO purposes you will want to look for long-tailed keywords that have the greatest search volumes. These keywords may have less searches than broader keywords, but they are much easier to rank for in the search engines. You can use Google’s free keyword research tool, or if you would like a much heartier tool use Brad Callen’s Keyword Elite.

2) Title, Tags, and Headers: This is often a step that is overlooked. Make sure your title, tags, and headers are all including the keywords that you are trying to rank for. Having the title right can really give you an edge over your competition. If you do not know how to do this yourself, come up with the title, tags, and headers and then give them to your webmaster.

3) Links: One way to really boost your SEO ranking is to have links from authority sites to your website. What determines an authority site? Page rank. You can install Google’s toolbar or use sites like,, to determine a sites page rank. Article marketing and social bookmarking are two of the best ways to get links pointing back to your website. Think of each link pointing back to your site as a vote for how relevant your website is. The more relevant you become the higher you will rank in the search engines.

If you can stay consistent in these three main areas over a period of a few months you will see your website begin to move up in the rankings. Just think about it, if you posted one new article a day to different article directories, in a period of one month you could have 31 new links pointing back to your website. Now that’s powerful! Just remember, the more material you’ve got out there pointing back to your website, the more people will find it, and consequently find you!

Comment Policy: Keep it positive and on topic. Comments will be promptly deleted if that are 1.) spammy (i.e. keyword like "marketing tips" in place of your name, 2.) not related to this article, or 3.) in any way offensive or attacking to anyone. It's OK to disagree but it must be in a respectful and positive manner. Thanks!
