Simply getting "more visitors" is actually quite easy. Just sign up for one of those spammy link-wheel programs and you'll get hundreds, maybe thousands of visitors. Of course, they'll only stick around a second or two before they move on... but there will be plenty of them.

What's hard is getting more visitors who are actually interested in buying what you're offering. But when somebody says they want more traffic, this is usually the kind of traffic they're talking about.

Since you posted this in the Pay Per Click advertising forum, I assume you've considered PPC? That's an excellent way to bring in more qualified site visitors. It's also a great hedge against the inevitable fluctuations in traffic from organic search. You just never know when the search engines are going to change their algorithms and your organic search traffic takes a nose dive. PPC can easily step in and take up the slack when that happens. (Notice I said "when," not "if.")

You should also look into beefing up your direct referral traffic. That is, traffic that comes directly from links on other websites. Find companies you can partner with, those that offer related (but not directly competing) services, those that serve the same audience you want to target. It's OK to exchange links with these types of sites -- don't let anybody tell you that "all link exchanges are spam" -- or you can offer them a "finders' fee" for qualified referrals they send your way, if that's what it takes to get a link on their site.

You might also take a look at traditional advertising, both on and off line. It can get a bit pricy, and it's true that clickthrough rates for banner ads are relatively low, but it may be an alternative that works for you. Especially if you've got a brand you can promote -- it's unlikely that you'll lose search position for a branded term unless you've done something really black-hat. Those branded search terms can save your cookies when the keyword terms fall away.

Email and direct mail marketing are also possibilities.

The thing is, start thinking about how you'd promote your business if there were no such thing as Google. What would you do to get the word out then? What would you do to get your phones ringing? Do those things, regularly. Don't let yourself get into a position where a change in the organic search algorithm can seriously affect your business. If you're already in that sort of place, do everything in your power to get out of it.

If you're looking for a way to "fix" your site to try to bounce back from the recent Google updates, you might want to take a look at this article from Search Engine Journal: Penguin or Panda? How To Determine Which Google Algorithm Update Impacted Your Website. And be aware it can take six months (or more) to recover, so you should probably consider other promotional and advertising channels in the meantime.

All good advice! I recently wrote an article on how to get more traffic without search engines for this very reason.... you never know when the next algorithm change will impact you.

i think your goal should be to get more sales, not more traffic no matter where you visitors come from. Payperclick ads, print media, radio, word of mouth, viral promotions, social promotions, are all places to look when looking to advertise in order to create sales.

Write a blog have that blog and only publish to your website. Make your website relevant to what you do. I look at your social sites and it looks like you were active in May of this year and thats it.

Look at what your competition is doing and why they are going up and you are going down.

Content Content Content.. This is how you get to the top and stay their.
be an authority on the subject or fill a void that your customer needs filled.

I know you have hear it all before your website is just not doing it.

FireUps you are exactly right, watch your competition & duplicate what they are doing! Also you have to be consistent with creating educational content that helps teach, inform & educate those in your niche with their problems & frustrations. You can also create content around any questions they may have!

If you help & educate others then they will start looking at you as the go to person in your field & they won't hesitate to purchase any products that you recommend because they have built a relationship & trust in you!

Just my 2 cents!

As I analyzed your website you are having just 248 back-links and most of them from - AutoCAD | 2D Drafting, and you have hardly any good links.
This recent update (Penguin) was to demote such websites who were involved in spamming activities, after going through your links, it seems you have hardly such links which can add value.
You are involved in link exchange activities: it is not ever recommended!
Coming to next point you have a corporate website, and it seems it is also poorly designed, (it is not cause of dropping your visitors) I recommend it to be restructured. It is just because you can get good on-line leads.
Start making natural and good backlinks, target right keywords for your website, optimize your content, and discard any spamming/black-hat technique.
You can seek for any seo services (never go with such who just know making links.. those who can understand your business can really help you, SEO is all about educate visitors, building trust, setting you as a brand and turning your visitors in to your clients, and getting such visitors who are really looking for such services what you offer)
