No Love From the Search Engines


What are you going to do if you don’t get traffic from the search engines? It happens all the time. You might already have a few sites and you are posting content regularly. It seems like no one is coming to your site and you are not getting any help. Just keep plugging away at building your site and continue to link to your content.

Another option is to start buying traffic to your site. Check to see if you can find one of those coupons for setting up a pay per click account. Search for keywords related to your site and give the pay per click ads a try. This is not a long term solution, but at least you can start getting people to visit your site.

Continue to market your content through social media and article directories. The traffic might not show up overnight, but you have to keep adding content for a chance to break through. Free article directories are the place that other website owners and ezine owners go for content. Your content might find an audience there that leads to more traffic.

Free social media and web 2.0 sites might also get you some more views for your site. Try using squidoo, hubpages and other sites that allow you to publish content. It is free and they have some active members. Go to youtube and start posting videos. Create quick videos and link back to your site.

If you are not getting traffic, you could take a look at your keywords. The seo game keeps changing, but it couldn’t hurt to learn more about seo and seo writing. Make sure that you are tagging your information with high search keywords. Use those tags on your content. Think about using offline marketing tactics. Promote your web address on your flyers. Get qr codes for your flyers to make it easy for people to get to your site.

Don’t wait on the search engines to deliver your traffic. Try multiple ways of getting traffic to your sites. Buy traffic, use social media, and go offline if you have to.
