I`ve published my website…now what?
Ok. So you have just uploaded your great new website and want to get some first time visitors. In the next few lines you are going to find out exactly how to get the traffic ball rolling. Slowly…but surely.
1. The best first time visitor traffic comes from search engines.
So thats where you are headed. The big ones are the ones you want to get indexed, the rest will follow.
Here are the big boys:
- Mr. Google – http://www.google.com/addurl/
- MSN Live search – http://search.msn.co.in/docs/submit.aspx
- Yahoo – http://search.yahoo.com/info/submit.html
Enter your URL and they will unleash the spiders. Than here is the most important and the hardest part:
Why? Because it will take some time for your site to be fully crawled and even more to be indexed.
2. Get some links from websites closely related to you
This will bring you some first time visitors in short run and also increase the speed of your site being indexed in search engines.
Just find sites related to yours (hint:google) and send them a polite email if they could present your site to their visitors and what will they gain with it.
3. Spread the word through forums related to your topic
Join a few forums and attach your URL in the signature; if your posts are helpfull to forum members you will soon see some first time visitors coming in.
4. Write an article or two and post them at article sites
Don`t forget to create a signature with link back to your website. You want to know where I post my articles and get the best results in the world? No problem…. Go to ezinearticles.com. This can bring you lots of first time visitors in short time.
5. Social bookmarking!
Not to be overlooked. If you have something newsworthy than social bookmarking sites are going to work like charm. It could bring you a huge amount of visitors in just a few hours. But Beware: it could bring visitors, but nothing more. That is because people who use these sites often just browse for news and are not so motivated as the ones that come from search engines.
Ok. I know you want to know which ones i use:
These 5 things will bring you traffic in the long run. If you are not getting results, than try to perfect your knowledge in each of these things. It is worth the time, believe me.
