How To Get 1000 Visitors A Day !?
Posted 21 May 2004 - 05:42 PM
I optimized my site according to all the rules and I NEVER spam.
All the time I submit my web site to related resources or exchange links with other webmasters.
I only recieve visitors from google and yahoo !!!
Although I paid inktomi to get listed in MSN and im listed in Alltheweb, But I hardly recieve any visitors from MSN, Alltheweb, or other major search engines.
Honestly, I hardly get 100 targetted visitors a day.
What is it im forgeting or doing wrong ?
Is it time to start thinking about Paid Advertising (like google adwords) ?
Do I simply need to be patient and keep working on link popularity ?
Im sure that im not the only one here having this problem.
I would appreciate any hlp or advise about this.
Thanx all :tooth:

Does a visitor after finding your site feel the NEED to come back to it?
Add useful content so they really do feel the need.

"How much traffic are the keyterms I'm optimized for get per day?"
"How much traffic are my linked sites getting and where are the links to my site located?"
You may need to pay some for advertising on key sites or offer an affiliate program to encourage sites to push yours. Basically, with everything you're doing now, if it's not optimized in for where the traffic is, it's not doing you much good.
And what Rhogan said as he snuck in on me.

I used to have a Parenting site back in the 90's that got over 1000 visitors a day without buying ads.
If you have lots of great information that people can't find elsewhere, you can certainly get that kind of traffic, but it's a whole lot of hard work. You have to live, eat and breath your site. (Or pay someone else who does!)

However, if you do not have a site that provides these things, even pay per click advertising may not neccessaily be the answer.
I own one site, an Arizona construction and home improvement portal, that can easily get 1000 plus visitors a day because it reaches out to so many different people. On the other hand, my web development site targeting web design services for Arizona, probably never gets over a 100 visitors a day. I don't need that many to the web design site because if just 100 people visit it a day and 1% of those turn into customers in a month's time, then that is 30 new clients which would be great for that business.

I think thats the key to finding out if its possible for your particular site.
What are your search engine positions for keyword terms in google and yahoo?
If your already number 1 then maybe theres not much traffic out there for the topic of your website. If your not even top 10 then keep on working on this aspect.
Yahoo and google are the 2 main search engines, similar positions on smaller search engine MSN wont get you much traffic and they have more sponsored ads above listings so even less will come your way .

If you already getting 100 visitors a day, I would concentrate on working out why you are not getting 100 new customers a day. If you already doing that, then you should be able to work out how much profit you make from each visitor. That could allow you to work out a budget for Google Adwords or Overture PPC - if you want some instant traffic.
>MSN wont get you much traffic ...

definitely with the last two posts. I had a client recently who only sells their product in Sydney, ask why they did not receive hundreds of visitors a day? My response was they did not need them. Hundreds of people daily in Sydney or surrounding areas where not searching online for their product. But what I did ask was how many sales they where making. The answer to that was, "Our sales are great", thats why they wanted more visitors. They believed that because their online sales where so good, that more visitors would make more sales. As I pointed out to them, they have pretty much well exhausted everything relevant on the WWW to deliver relevant traffic for sales. They now needed to go to traditional local advertisement methods to build their business, not Online.

Excellent point. Too many times we forget there are other ways to gain traffic. Some of the older traditional promos still work. For one site we run small newspaper ads in our audiences' markets, and they work. Each site should have a distinct promotional plan geared to its market and budget. SE traffic represents one but not all of your traffic generators.

Make sure you don't limit yourself to just the top few phrases. Those secondary phrases that bring less gross traffic can add up too. Plus I've found that they're normally more relevant to what searchers are looking for, so convert at a much higher ratio than more generic phrases. Not to mention that they're usually a lot easier to gain a top position for, everything else being equal.
