New Trends In Traffic Generation

Whatever you do on the net, you will always deal with
Traffic Generation...the holly grail.

To make it short, you have 2 main types of traffic :

1) Search Engine traffic

What is it? : organic traffic
coming from search engines such as Google, Yahoo, MSN

Pros :
- This traffic is f.re.e
- Traffic is highly targeted
- Volume of traffic can be very high

Cons :
- you don't control it
- you rely on robots to analyze your site and deliver
some traffic
- you need to get indexed...without being de-indexed
(once again, you rely on search engines policy and
- short term

2) Referred Traffic
(I know Search engine traffic is also a sort of
referred traffic, but let's put SE traffic apart
from this category)

What is it?
Traffic coming from third party sites (other than search
engines) and is a result of a "manual / human" action.

Examples : article directories, social bookmarking services,
forums, partners, text link ads, banners, directories, rss...

Pro :
- you control it
- you have a lot of means to develop it
(almost unlimited ; a lot are fr.ee)
- it's highly targeted
- You can pay to get better targeting and control
over your referred traffic
- Long term

Cons :
- Time & resources consuming
- Repetitive tasks

Now, through my membership (Niches-In-A-Box), my forum,
my readings of other forums, I know that most webmasters
mainly rely on search engines traffic, our first category.

The aim of the present article is to throw the light on
a different angle of the Traffic Generation big box!

Summary : the right way to get into traffic generation is
to forget about search engines.

Focusing on search engine traffic gives a too narrow
vision of traffic generation. It does not reveal all
the opportunities existing outside of the search engines
(understand all the way to generate Referred Traffic).

In addition, as you've seen from the cons above, you accept
to rely on something you never control, and this is a HUGE
risk in your marketing strategy.

Warning : I do not say, you should not care about search engine
traffic. I say that it should not be your priority, and the first
door you try to open when dealing with traffic generation.
It's a question of point of view.

Now, on the other hand, focusing on developing what we called
Referred Traffic is a more positive, constructive and profitable
attitude and marketing strategy.

Not only will you build traffic for the long term, but
you will also "manually" control your traffic, either by
submitting your content, your sites, your feeds, or by
exchanging links, content, traffic with partners,
being active on forums, blogs...

Doing it this way will give you a lot of power and effectiveness.
Those sources of Referred Traffic only vanish...if you decide
to let them vanish. Once again, you control everything.

Now, you have some positive side effects :
- By building Referred Traffic, you give a lot of food
to search engines to index your site, understand them,
and rank them well...
- ...thus developing naturally your Search Engine Traffic!

Try to develop Referred Traffic by submitting your sitemap to
Google, and you will understand the difference between the
2 approaches :-)

Google and other search engines tend to change their algorithms
quite often to produce more relevant content for users of their
engines. Sometimes, your site is getting de-indexed in a day
just because of this.

Are you lost, is your site dead? It could if you only relied on
Search Engine traffic. It has no impact if you focused on building
Referred Traffic.

In one case, you feel bad and like if you had wasted your time.
In the other case, you don't even notice it (on the long run ;
of course, you can see a fall in traffic coming from
a given search engine)

But even then, your site has a lot of chances of being re-indexed
when you've build Referred Traffic, simply because the search engines
food is still there! And this is a HUGE difference and one of the most
valuable asset you can develop.

If you're still with me, you should now understand my point : when
with bots, you need to act as a human...which means you should
not try to talk to them :-) Give them some "bot food" that you build
naturally by developing a Referred Traffic Generation Strategy.

Here are 10 easy "pieces" to do what we described above :

Once you have a site...
1) Find some related blogs, read them, identify trends, and post
comments (no stupid comments, no spam of course) with a link
back to your site where you're also discussing the topic

2) Do the same with related forums. Use search engines (!)
to find relevant forums. Register and start being active
on these forums. Use your signature to put a link back to
your site

3) Create a blog (if you don't have one) and post on a regular
basis on it. Use a service like feedburner to syndicate your content
with other webmasters.

4) Submit your feeds, blogs, and site to niche directories

5) Find "authority" sites in your niche, analyze them and
contact the webmasters to :
a) propose a link exchange (you should
first put a link to their site),
b) if you're selling a report or an ebook, propose them
to become an affiliate (give them a fre.e copy of your ebook
first), and make it easy for them to manage their promotion
c) if they have a newsletter, read it, understand it, and then
ask the webmaster if you can have a sponsored ad into it,
or even better a solo ad where you could advertise your site,
newsletter, ebook...
d) propose content exchange with link back to each other's website
e) build a relation with them

6) The most effective : write articles and submit them to
article directories (some with big traffic, and some niche
related ones)

7) Social bookmarking and social networking :
a) build a Squidoo
lens (see http://squidooprofits.com for more details).
You can find many sites like Squidoo and build pages
about your niche on these ones too. You can link them to your
main niche sites, you can link back to your blogs, or even
to your other "squidoo" like pages, thus creating a "niche social
net" all relevant to your niche.
b) build a myspace account and create a profile around your niche,
then build your "list" of friends around this profile
c) submit your site to social bookmarking services (digg, technorati,
del.icio.us ...)
d) You can also comment on the most popular entries with a link
back to your site, blog, or squidoo lens.

8) Use videos and sites like youtube.com (and similar) to drive
traffic to your niche site. Produce a short video (2-3 minutes)
around your site, your niche and you.
Link to your Videos from your "niche social net" (see 7) )
Also, ask webmasters to put a link to this video (once you
have build a relation with them) - Or they can upload it to
their server and brand it with their affiliate ID, if you have
an affiliate program

9) Make it viral : your best source of
(new) traffic...is your (current) traffic!

Use some "Tell a friend" features on your site to have them
promote your site. You can provide incentives (such as a fre.e
report, a coupon for your ebook...)

10) Paid Traffic : yes...all the above technics do not cost
a penny...(unless you pay for advertising on a partner's site)

You can pay to get tar.geted traffic : you can advertise through
text link ads, banners, that will appear on high traffic sites.

You should serioulsy consider paid traffic. Do not see it as
a cost, but rather as an initial in.ves.tment to boost your site.
Also, if your site is correctly monetized, then paid traffic
is the easiest way to get some quick metrics about this, and
to make it profitable quickly.

As you see we could easily expand this list. But, those are,
in my opinion, the most important sources of Referred Traffic.

Now, compare the above list with Search Engine traffic, and you
will see why your approach should focus on generating Referred Traffic
and not Search Engine Traffic. This type of traffic will come
naturally anyway...

Clifton Waldrep, I hope I made Traffic Generation a bit clearer...

To your success

Search Engine Optimization

SEO - Search Engine Optimization, If your new to marketing on the internet then you will surely be reading many articles on this subject. When working on one’s web site making it friendly to the search engines is probably the most important thing you could do to help break into the World Wide Web (the Internet).

Many search engine optimization companies will sell you a search engine optimization package that addresses many of the major aspects of search engine optimization. To get your website listed well in the major search engines, you have to perform search engine optimization (SEO). Utilizing effective Search Engine Optimization techniques will improve the page rank of your website.

As a webmaster you should be using FireFox browser! If your not, then download it here http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ After you have installed this browser onto your computer view your web site. Located at the lower right side of the browser you will see Google page rank and Alexia. These 2 indicators are very useful when examining a site for popularity.

As should be understood by this point, it is imperative that an understanding of and taking advantage of Search Engine Optimization will provide the website a higher profile in the world of search engines. This means that any webmaster that makes an effort to provide quality, relevant and detailed content on their site with the experience of the surfer as their central focus will be using an extremely powerful search engine optimization tool. A search engine optimization company is a company that offers the service of creating and adjusting all the variables involved in search engine optimization in order to get your web site the best ranking they can achieve, during the designated project period, for all the major search engines.

Now for those of you who plan to better your websites via Search Engine Optimization here are the stages you need to follow in order to have an efficient and effective SEO campaign. No matter which type of SEO methods are chosen or implemented, an ongoing campaign of optimization does need to exist, as the parameters that are used for the rankings and placement by the Search Engines, change frequently, and research into current methods needs to be done routinely. As the old saying goes, "Different strokes for different folks", really applies to Search Engine Optimization and rankings and placement.

In short: Search Engine Optimization is really the snowball effect in action. In the broader perception it has been observed that Organic search engine optimization is far more reliable in long-term, whereas PPC is reliable for short term solutions. According to Internet Marketing Articles, One of the important steps in search engine optimization is to optimize Title tag in your web page.

Localized search engine optimization is the addition of local search terms to your tags and web pages. If you are simply looking for a search engine optimization tip that will make life on the web a little easier, then my recommendation is of no use. Service providers who have this “adversarial” philosophy will tell their prospects that the formulation of a search engine optimization strategy is much like a high-stakes game of chess.

While this is not the methodology that I recommend, it is a valid – albeit potentially volatile – search engine optimization strategy. What all this means is that content remains the most important search engine optimization tool. Some articles on search engine optimization are written for those "in the know".

Internet Marketing in the form of Search Engine Optimization has helped to build several successful business portals online. Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process by which webmasters or online business owners utilize strategic copy to increase their website’s popularity. Search engine optimization (SEO) is the marketing technique of enhancing a website and its content in order to increase the chances of achieving a high rank on search engine result pages (SERP) under relevant keyword searches.

You must think of search engine optimization as a long-term investment in your website. For prime search engine optimization, your article headline should include keywords in the BEGINNING (the first 2-4 words- not at the end. In case you have a little bit knowledge about search engine optimization, you likely know that link popularity is very important to attaining high search engine ranking in major search engines such as Google, MSN, Yahoo, etc.

Because of the unpredictable nature of search engines, a website can easily move from a top ranking position on a SERP down to the third or fourth SERP or even banned from the search engine altogether.

Some of the basics when it comes to SEO and getting high ranking in search engines starts with using a keyword and then placing it strategically throughout the website in content, title, headline, etc. In practical terms, if you’re writing an article, service description or sales copy for your website, focus on creating informative and interesting content, but factor in keyword phrases that are more likely to give you a better ranking with the search engines. So the most effective way to ensure that a website owner focuses on the surfers is for them to direct their focus on them, just like search engines are.

In conclusion, make sure when creating your web site that you keep in mind linking, SEO, and of course user-friendly experience for all. A web site is like building a business on the internet, you build it one day at a time...

Internet Business: Great Tips To Start Your Own Profitable Internet Home Business...

Here is an article I found while surfing the net. I wanted to share it with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did..

Internet Business: Great Tips To Start Your Own Profitable Internet Home Business... By: Michel Richer

You might think that it is hard to start an internet home business. But in fact it is pretty easy to do business on the internet. Of course you need some knowledge to begin your internet business enterprise. But you don't need a doctorate to do business on the web.

All you need is some computer knowledge and some internet marketing basis and a good dose of determination. Here is some basic tips on how to start an internet business.

1. Choose A Product or Service To Sell: On the internet you can find houndreds of product to sell. You can sell your own product by creating your own, or purchasing resale rights or being an affiliate with a good internet company.

2. Business Domain Name:
One important first step is to choose the best domain name you can. Keep it as short and simple as possible. Think of domain name like " Google " or " Yahoo ". They are short and easy to remember. I know that some people say to use keyword in youre domain name. But if you choose " Internet Business " there is million of site with this term. So are you going to use for example "AprofitableInternetbusiness.com" it might be a nice name but it is too long and not simple.

3. Web Site: Having A good business website is essential to succeed with an internet business. Here is the thing you have to plan to build your website.

A) Decide on the website design (colour schemes, buttons, special effects etc). However, you may have a preference for a certain colour or look. To help you choose a design, you may wish to check out other people's websites or work with your web designer's pre-set templates.

(b) The content. There are many items you may wish to include on your website.

The most common ones include:
1 Products And Services
2. Contact Information
3. Pricing
4. Testimonials
5. Frequently Asked Questions
6. Resources & Articles
7. Refund Policy
8. Privacy Policy
9. About Us
10. Site Map
11. Useful Links
12. On-line store

C. Choose a Web Hosting Company:
What is a Web hosting Company? A Web host is a company that provides server space for your website. You can think of a web host as a commercial building. The web host provides space for your website just as a commercial building provides space for your shop or office.

What are some of the things you should look for when choosing a web host? The criteria for choosing a free web host and a commercial web hosting solution are slightly different although they do overlap.

A) Web Space Does it have enough space for your needs? If you envisage that you will expand your site eventually, you might want to cater for future expansion. Most sites use less than 5MB of web space. Indeed, at one time, one of my other web sites, thefreecountry.com, used less than 5MB of space although it had about 150 pages on the site. Your needs will vary, depending on how many pictures your pages use, whether you need sound files, video clips, etc.

B) Bandwidth allotment Nowadays, many free web hosts impose a limit on the amount of traffic your website can use per day and per month. This means that if the pages (and graphic images) on your site is loaded by visitors beyond a certain number of times per day (or per month), the web host will disable your web site (or perhaps send you a bill). It is difficult to recommend a specific minimum amount of bandwidth, since it depends on how you design your site, your target audience, and the number of visitors you're able to attract to your site. In general, 100MB traffic per month is too little for anything other than your personal home page and 1-3GB traffic per month is usually adequate for a simple site just starting out. Your mileage, however, will vary.

C) Reliability and speed of access This is extremely important. A site that is frequently down will lose a lot of visitors. If someone finds your site on the search engine, and he tries to access it but find that it is down, he'll simply go down the list to find another site. Slow access is also very frustrating for visitors (and for you too, when you upload your site). How do you know if a host is reliable or fast? If you can't get feedback from anyone, one way is to try it out yourself over a period of time, both during peak as well as non-peak hours. After all, it is free, so you can always experiment with it.

4. How To Promote Your Business Website: Write An Article: Write an article promoting your site or product. Write an article on a hot topic many people would like more information on and submit it to various e-zines. How do you find out what's hot? Visit a few of the message boards and see what questions are raised often.

Search Engines: Thousands of search engines exist on the Internet. But, you should only be concerned with the top eight or ten.

You should manually submit to the top eight: Alta Vista, Excite, Yahoo, Hotbot, Lycos, Northern Light, Infoseek, Webcrawler, and use one of the FREE automatic submission services like *SubmitPlus* to handle the smaller search engines.

List your site here too. Directories organize sites into categories. Good examples of Directories: Yahoo, Magellan. Ezine Listings: If you have an e-zine to promote along with your site. Why not list it with one of the many e-zine services on the Internet.

E-zine Library is a good one to start with. Free Classifieds: You will have to submit to a ton of FREE classifieds to get any significant traffic. Why? You are competing with thousands of other Ads.

Remember to work on your Ad copy and make it attention grabbing. Go to one of the popular search engines, type in Free Classifieds, and surf to the top 20 classified sites for beginners. Often, these sites will lead you to several other Free Classified Sites.

In response you'll get a stack of e-mail thanking you for listing your site while barking their promo. Best to get one of those free email accounts. Hot mail is a good one. So is Yahoo mail. FFA Pages. Free For All's are worth a try. Be prepared for a avalanche of e-mails from FFA web site owners. If your title is attention grabbing you will get a few clicks. Good Attention grabbing headlines, FREE, Limited Time, Limited Offer, Proven, Secrets, and many more if you brainstorm.

Check out the sales literature delivered to you by regular mail. Check and see what headlines grab your attention. And why? Incorporate them into your Online Ads. Tell Friends And Family: If your friends, family, acquaintances, have an Internet Connection, e-mail them telling them about your new website, and ask them to visit often.

Offer a FREE incentive if they tell a few friends to surf over. Perhaps, a FREE Ad in your e-zine. Leave Business Cards or Flyers: Leave these promo pieces with small businesses in your community. All relevant contact information; email address, URL, telephone number, should be included. Offer a freebie to anyone who visits your site. A free e-book, report.

IN CONCLUSION, Think of your first six months primarily as a training period. Don't expect large earnings until after you've educated yourself. Even the most dynamic, highest-earning entrepreneurs in the industry took MONTHS to begin seeing an income of any real significance. Don't be a negative thinker and don't let the negative attitudes of others (even if they're family members, friends, or peers) influence you.

All the great men and women in history had to overcome the naysayers who said it couldn't be don't and then went out and did it. Think for yourself! As long as you think positive and focused on your internet business target you're on the right way to a rich life, which is directed by you and it will lead you to tremendous success and personnal satisfaction.

Make Real Money the Easy Way with a Turnkey Home Based Business Opportunity

Are you looking for a way to make some extra income? Since the dawn of the Internet, entrepreneurs have found ways to use the World Wide Web to generate income from home. The Internet is a natural as a home base business. All you need to get up and running is a connection to the web. There are literally hundreds of opportunities to start your own work from home business, all requiring different degrees of commitment from you. How do you choose the home based business opportunity that's the best home base business for you when there's so much to choose from?

The answer is far simpler than you'd think. The key to a successful Internet home business is to decide what you do well, and choose a home based business opportunity that makes the most of your strengths and preferences. For many people, that opportunity is a turnkey business.

A turnkey business is just what it sounds like. A turnkey business is one that's all set up and ready to go. All you need is the 'keys' to the door to make it yours. Your commitment to a turnkey business can be as little as making a monthly payment to keep the store online, or as involved as deciding every little thing from the background color of your website pages to the products featured in your storefront. There is no other type of business opportunity that can offer you so many benefits for so little investment.

With a turnkey Internet based home business you can:
* Have a genuine business up and running within hours
* Make money on the Internet in the shortest possible time
* Have a business web site without learning a single HTML tag
* Set your own hours and work when you want
* Sell almost anything you can imagine

In other words, a turnkey business does all the setup work FOR you so that you can get to the good part - making money.

Like anything else, though, there are good turnkey opportunities, and ones that are little more than shills to take your money. It's important to evaluate a turnkey home base business just as you would any other business opportunity. After all, you want the best home base business for your time and money.

There are a number of questions you should ask when you're evaluating an Internet home base business, such as:
1. How good is the training? The best home base business opportunities provide excellent training, right down to mentoring you with personal phone calls to help you get established.

2. How much flexibility do you have in choosing products?
How much flexibility do you want? Some turnkey businesses operate on a lockstep principle - you sell what they tell you. Period. And that can work fine for some people. If you want the freedom to add your own products, though, they might not be the right business for you. Other turnkey home base businesses offer you a range of products and expect you to choose which ones you want to sell, or let you find and stock your own products. Again, each are suited to a particular kind of entrepreneur. Knowing which one you are can help you choose wisely. The best of all models gives you ALL the options. You can choose whether to sell only their products, your products AND their products, only your products or any other mix you can imagine.

3. How flexible is your storefront?
Again - there are dozens of different models for Internet turnkey web stores. Some lock you into their own precise 'formula for success' - you pay your money once, or monthly for web hosting - and that's all you have to do. Others let you build your site from scratch. The best choice is the best of both worlds - all the hard work done, the nuts and bolts and framework in place with the option to dress it up as you like.

What should you look for in a complete home base business opportunity?
- web hosting with plenty of bandwidth allowance
- an easy customization system that lets you change colors and products
- a complete shopping cart and checkout package
- a credit card processing package - training to help you get started
- access to all web site files to make changes if you want
- a fully functioning web site even if you choose to go right out of the box

Just keep in mind that you're looking at a genuine business investment here - something that can change your lifestyle forever. Evaluate each opportunity and choose the one that works best for your personal business style.

Affiliate Internet Marketing

Promoting affiliate programs is the least costly and least stressful of all types of home Internet businesses and makes an excellent starting point for Internet marketing novices. If you are looking to make money on the Internet then one of the easiest and most lucrative ways is Affiliate marketing. If you're marketing your own product on the Internet, you can dramatically increase your sales with an affiliate program.

When considering an affiliate Internet marketing program, it is best to decide if the product you will be selling is something that you have a lot to knowledge about. If you have found a program that is not to hard to market and is something you are knowledgeable about, it is advised that you review the terms and conditions for the affiliate internet marketing program. Generally affiliate programs are either one-tier or two-tier programs which means if you participate in a one-tier program, you get paid for referrals that you send to the company for which you are an internet marketing company affiliate.

Some website operators join affiliate programs and become an internet marketing company affiliates for the purpose of supplementing their income a little while providing their website visitors with easy access to products and services that may be beneficial to them. Still there are other high-earning super affiliates who spend zero on the same affiliate internet marketing programs and still take home the same amount check or sometimes an even higher amount check than that of a person using PPC ads. The truth is that there are many people who usually spend a significant amount of money every month on their affiliate Internet marketing and end up with a substantial return to show for their cash investment.

The truth is that given the same volume of traffic, you will tend to sell more with affiliate Internet marketing referring people to an appropriate affiliate product than you will trying to sell off your own product. The truth is that it would be difficult, if not impossible for you to find a more effective affiliate Internet marketing tool that drives such highly targeted high traffic to a site. The way to increase traffic in order to attain the best Internet affiliate marketing is heavily dependent on the kind of content that you are generating for your site and how closely it matches the expectations of visitors to your site.

When you can also write link-baiting articles regularly for your affiliate Internet marketing, then sooner or later your site will in the leading pack of sites as far as links are concerned. It will also help your affiliate Internet marketing cause a great deal if you select a program that pays out commissions on a second tier at the very least. Constantly keeping an eye on the two key elements of increased earnings from an affiliate program is the real secret behind achieving your best Internet affiliate marketing.

In a nutshell, an Internet affiliate marketing program is a promotion of another business through another business, which generates sales through the advertising of one business by the other. Also, solid tracking software is an essential tool for any poker affiliate using Internet marketing as a way of building their business. That is why when doing an Internet affiliate marketing program, you should partner with other online businesses that provided a quite similar product or service.

An affiliate Internet marketing tip that deserves to be mentioned is to make sure your affiliates are promoting your sales as they are supposed to be doing. Another affiliate Internet marketing tip is to be careful the percentage you wish to offer and examine how you will pay your affiliates.

Make Tons Of Money With Affiliate Programs

There are many different affiliate programs being offered today! You want to make sure that you choose the best suited for your marketing approach!

There is a one-tier affiliate program, which pay commissions on one level. There are two tiers, which pay on two levels. There are also "lifetime affiliate programs. Promoting affiliate programs is the least costly and least stressful of all types of home Internet businesses and makes an excellent starting point for Internet marketing novices.

Affiliate programs are sometimes referred to as associate programs or referral programs. Some affiliate programs allow you to make a commission only once when that person buys, whereas other places allow you to receive a commission whenever the person who first bought from you, buys again in the future. This is because new programs are usually trying to iron out the details and get "their feet wet".

What Internet marketing affiliate programs should you join and endorse to your list in order to increase your online business profit. Well, this will depend on if you are a serious Internet Marketer or just a person looking for a new hobby? In the case of using the Internet as a hobby, you can pretty much choose anything, because it really won’t matter!

As a person who is serious, you would be described as someone who actually will probably spend more then $1,000.00 USD per month on his/her chosen Internet business. Also, keeping up with the ever-changing environment of the Internet is a challenge in it’s self! Like any business you will need help to operator it, and get it off the ground.

Now, getting back to affiliate marketing. Once you make your first sale (and they also give you the option of making the sale yourself) then they will index your site in their affiliate programs to promote. You can also get other affiliate programs that give you greater control and tracking, just do a search in Google for "Affiliate Software". Affiliate programs are an excellent way to increase traffic to your web site and increase your profits.

Have you thought about earning a commission on a brand-name or niche product just by placing a link on your website or in your email. Affiliate marketing is essentially a website network. The more people that click on a link redirecting the visitor to an affiliate marketing partners website and results to a sale, the more commission a site owner gets and vice versa.

A Cookie or bookmark is automatically stored on the company’s website so they can ensure that any purchase made by your customer is credited to your account. The affiliate gets paid on the delivery of the customer, meaning that both parties are satisfied, the website because they have a new customer who may encourage others to join and the affiliate because they get paid for simply housing an advert. If a visitor sees a featured product on the affiliate marketer's website and then decides to buy it, the website owner will earn a tidy commission from the sale.

The sort of income some people would kill to earn in a year. Meaning that you will be able to earn a commission from people that you refer to the affiliate program as well as from your own efforts. However, to earn any kind of serious money, you must take things seriously and apply a lot of hard work.

Internet Marketing is not a "Get-Rich" quick scheme! It will take many long hours of work & money!

Search engines are another source of affiliate programs. By placing the famous "Ads by Google" on their developed websites, affiliate marketers earn what is called PPC, or "pay per click" revenue each time a visitor clicks on the ad. Do not join an Affiliate Program that pays you less then 50% commission of what the product sells for, it’s just not worth working for peanuts when you can be making the Big Bucks!

You will be spending a lot of time and money promoting someone else’s product! You deserve a 50/50 split!

Internet Marketing Business

The benefit of joining a great support forum for people who are starting out in the internet marketing business is priceless. One thing that people just don't realize when they decide to take their home based internet marketing business online is that there's a lot more to it than meets the eye.
