You are Here: Free Internet Marketing Newsletter > Back Issues > Traffic Building Tips That Work - January 8, 2007


We hope you’ve had a great start to the New Year and are enjoying getting back to work and starting to put all your new goals into action.

If one of your goals is to get more traffic to your website, we have a few more tips to share with you:

Last week we talked about doing your keyword research, setting up a search engine friendly page and gave you a website checklist to use when setting up a new website. If you missed that issue you can find it in the newsletter archive here:


This week let’s talk about some effective ways to build traffic.

Blogs – Blogs are still a fantastic way to get traffic to your website and build relationships with your visitors. Blogging is a great way to provide regular, fresh content for the search engines.

And you don’t stress yourself thinking of witty, creative things to say with every blog post. You can just have an announcement blog where you post upcoming events or a copy of your weekly newsletter. You can also use your blog to answer questions from subscribers. If you think of ways to maximize your content then blogging really won’t take up that much extra time.

And if you feel you really don’t have the time, why not try setting up a community blog. This is a shared blog where several contributors take turns making posts. The rules will have to be clearly set out before starting but this usually works well since you don’t have to worry about making regular posts and everyone involved gets a link back to their site and exposure.


Mila’s Blog Traffic Tip: When you link back from your blog to your website try linking in to your site map rather than the home page of your blog. this will help new site pages get spidered much faster since you’re making it easy for the search engines to find all those new pages.


Article Marketing – Definitely a great way to get incoming links, free traffic and class yourself as an expert in your field. Writing and submitting quality articles to online directories is a fantastic way to get all those things.

The trick is to write inspiring, original articles. Go for a catchy headlines that will inspire other online business owners to use your articles on their sites. There are a lot of related articles out there and to stand the best chance of being noticed you’ll need to produce good quality articles. And don’t forget to submit to several directories.


Mila’s Article Traffic Tip: When you write and submit an article to the online directories don’t worry too much about keyword research, instead concentrate on writing a good article. Then once you submit the article you can go back to it and optimize it for your chosen keyword phrase. Why compete with all those other people out there for the same phrase when you don’t have to?

Next week we’ll be talking about why “perfect” optimizing is not the way to go and for those of you who use your websites to attract local customers we’ll have some great local SEO (search engine optimization) tips.

Week in Review

According to the California newspaper, "North County Times Online Edition" Seasilver USA has closed because, "because the founder said he was tired of fighting the Federal Trade Commission." In 2003 the FTC filed a claim against the company saying that products were sold using "false and misleading claims." A substantial judgment was levied against the company and when they failed to pay on time, the FTC was awarded another judgment for $120 million. The company is appealing the decisions.

Seasilver's corporate website now reads, "It is with great sadness and regret that we are forced to inform you that the business office of Seasilver USA, Inc has been permanently closed," and goes on to assure customers that there are no product recalls and product is likely still available from distributors.
