In this article, I’ll be helping you on how to increase your website traffic fast and free. Yes free! without spending money on promotions and stuff. All you need to do is to read this article and follow the steps without skipping.
Why NOT use website traffic generators?
I’ve seen a lot of bloggers who try to use these FREE website traffic generators that promise to give you thousands of web traffic and now I’m here to tell you, stop using them! They won’t do any good for your website.
So yes, to answer your question. No! They are not safe and effective.
Some bloggers think that if they have this type of software to generate traffic then all they needed to do is to push a button that says “Generate Web Traffic!” and then boom! Instant traffic. Now let me tell you, that’s not how it works and you’re just cheating the system plus you’re just wasting not just time but also money.
These free website traffic generators will only give you fake traffic which could lead to being banned to Google services such as Google AdSense and not just that, instead of gaining website authority, you won’t get them because your page views are not organic at all.
I have used Website Traffic Generator, is my website gonna be okay?
If you are worried about the state of your website then don’t be. If you have used a website traffic generator, just stop using it and focus on getting back the trust of search engines by providing quality content, by getting backlinks and authority and by using proper ways of getting traffic like SEO and marketing strategy. Search engines will notice that eventually and will bring your website back to its right track.
How to get web traffic FAST?
You might have read this a lot of times but the only thing that is effective in giving you web traffic fast is by mastering SEO and marketing strategy.
Use keyword research tools like Google Keyword Planner. It’s free and very useful in providing the right keywords for your website. The thing that I will recommend you though is by using keywords with low competition level and high search volume. This will surely boost your website’s impressions and clicks.
I’m sure I know SEO now but I still don’t get traffic, why?
If you think you have mastered SEO yet you still don’t get traffic then there are possible reasons why this happen.
Your website is NEW
If your website is not older than 3 to 6 months old then expect your blog to not get that much traffic. In your first six months, you should only focus on writing high-quality content than focusing on gaining thousands of web traffic. Sure! You’re writing articles to gain traffic but if you focus your mind to that instead to your articles then your article might not end up useful. No one’s going to read that. So focus on writing an informative article.
Your content is not useful
Like I said before, making your content useful will not only help you gain traffic but it’ll also make your website trustworthy of useful information. If you don’t know, Google likes it when you help users online. So as much as possible, give everything you can when you write articles. Answer questions that are related to the topic that you’re writing about. Use google and take a look at related search. It will give you more questions related to the search keyword. If you do it this way, your visitors are more likely to stay and read more.
Your article is short
When you write a blog, do you just answer one question? or do you just tell stories about what happened to you in that topic? or do you combine them to make a very long informative blog? If the answer is no then your blog is probably shorter than a piece of paper.
So what is the recommended length for a blog post?
It is highly recommended to write your blog post with the length of 1600 words. That is equivalent to a 7-minute reading post. So, let me ask you again. Is your blog more than 1600 words? If no then it’s probably one of the reasons why you’re not getting that much traffic.
Okay, don’t get me wrong. I also have articles with less than a thousand words and I know it’s getting web traffic. It’s because I’m using the right keywords and Google finds my article useful so it’s being recommended to users online. BUT, most articles with 15 hundred words are usually getting more traffic. How? Because it’s informative, long, and contains keywords that help search engines.
Too much competition
This is the most common reason why most bloggers are not getting enough traffic. It’s because of the competition. It’s too high that you don’t get a chance to be in at least first top 10 search results.
So how can we defeat the competitors?
The answer is simple, beat their article. If their article is good. Make yours better than theirs. Blogging is a battlefield and your weapon is your content. Write deadly articles that could kill another blogger’s article. That’s the only way.
You want to know exactly how to do it? Go read their article. Look if they’re missing something. Check if they explain their article thoroughly. If not, then that’s your moment to write the same article but with a better explanation. You got it!
You have picked the wrong niche
Have you ever thought that maybe the reason why you’re not getting traffic is that the niche you have chosen is boring and not worth reading? In other words, if your blog is not interesting, even if you feel like it’s useful. No one’s going to read it because they don’t find your blog interesting.
My tip is to always put yourself into your readers’ shoes and try to ask yourself always, is my reader going to love this blog? is this worth reading?
Trust me, this will save you a lot of time of thinking.
You are not promoting your blog properly
It’s really common for bloggers to promote their blog posts through social media like posting on their pages, sharing on Twitter, pinning posts on Pinterest, and so on. Sure that will drive traffic but not that much as long as you do it improperly.
So how do you do it properly?
The best way to promote your blog posts is by including a short introduction about your article and then use the cliffhanger technique. Use words that will catch the reader’s attention and as soon as they’re interested hit them with the cliffhanger and put “Click here to learn more”. This is a very effective way to drive traffic to your website.
Also, use hashtags in your social media posts. This will also help your posts to be featured somewhere around social media.
Personally, I haven’t tried any web traffic generator myself and I’m not planning to try it. I’d rather work hard and earn a few page views than cheat the system with these “free” website traffic generators that are only gonna give you traffic bots which could potentially kill my website’s authority and trust from Google.
Look, gaining web traffic takes time and effort. If you don’t have the patience for it, there’s a little chance for you to survive this battle. As much as possible, try to avoid these temptations and just stay with the normal and effective of gaining web traffic and that is SEO.
