Having a website is only the first step in online business. The real challenge is to drive traffic to your website so that your business can run well. There are many things that you can do to drive traffic to your website. If you have large marketing budget, you can simply use PPC (Pay Per Click) ads or other similar advertising methods. But if you have very low budget or even no budget at all, you have to find a good way to promote your website at minimum cost.
If you can’t afford to purchase traffic through PPC ads or other similar advertising methods, you can take advantage of the search engines to drive traffic to your website. Internet users are using the search engines to find information, so that if your website can appear in the search result pages, preferably in the top position, you will get visitors to your website, which is called organic traffic.
Many sites on the Web are trying to get organic traffic, so the competition is really tight. In order to get listed in top position on the search engine result pages, also known as the ‘SERPS’, search engine optimization needs to be conducted.
The most basic thing that needs to be done and is always being mentioned in SEO tips is link building. The main idea of link building is to obtain links from other Web pages that link back to your website. The good thing about link building is the fact that it does not only affect a website’s position in the search result pages, but the promoted website will also get direct click-through traffic from the links. However, link building is not only a matter of getting as many links as possible. There are many other things that need to be considered, such as the authority of the websites where you put your link, the niche of the websites, and more.
To get links to your website, you can purchase links, do blog commenting, use online forum signature links, and many other things. But still, natural link building is the best way. If you have quality content on your website, people will voluntarily link to it. The best part is that you don’t have to pay for those permanent links.
If you really want to get higher rankings for your website, you will need to spend some time to do search engine optimization. If you can find a good search engine optimization tutorial and follow all of the steps properly, you will be well on your way to achieving higher rankings and increased revenue.
