I'm a new blogger and found this forum as a result of the advice of an internet marketer named John Thornill. He has a great blog post about getting traffic - http://www.johnthornhill.com/blog/th...fic-loopholes/

You can promote your website to social media sites like G+, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, etc. You can also do article marketing.

is this the case with everyone else? Have any of you had a social media effort that really yielded anything?

Definitely something you achieve and continue to work on over time. Unless you have a couple of thousand close friends who can simultaneously jump online and pump you up using the same techniques!

Time + effort = rewards

well to Increase traffic on your website you should do two thing first is, that your website should contain unique content and also proper on page SEO means Keywords placement and proper optimization and second is you have to do proper OFF page SEO like Forum posting, Blog commenting, Directory Submission, Press Release and Content Submission etc..

hope it will help you

I've had my website for almost four years and within the last two weeks I started SEO through the company that built my website. I've wasted over
12K with other companies, PPC, Yellow Pages and you're typical con of "I'll get you so much traffic you will have to hire someone". In four years I can honestly say I've been able to increase my traffic on my own by having a blog, Facebook, Twitter and now Pinterest.

If you sell products and have a Facebook page have a photo contest on your Facebook page and give away a few prizes. The fan with the most likes wins the prize. Someone must "Like" your page before they can vote. I've had several contest on my Facebook page and every time my fans have increased between 200-400.

One part of SEO that is not mentioned enough is On-Site Optimization. Your website must be optimized..proper HTML, alt tags, description, page titles, H1 tags etc. If your website doesn't have the goods the search robots will not crawl it.

I've talked to many people with websites and MANY of them do not have a clue in regards to keywords, meta tags, H1 tags, context.

The internet is one HUGE ocean of sharks and you must build a website that is a feeding site for the sharks to come.

Once you have more relevant posts you have more opportunities for exposure.

Blogging - Blogging does a ton of things for traffic in a bunch of different areas.
1.) More indexed pages which builds credibility with search engines

2.) More content for you to share via social media and for your followers to share with their friends, which increases your total reach AND the likelihood that you'll get more inbound links which is key to increasing traffic

3.) More opportunity to improve your keyword rank

Forums - Great way to interact with an audience and build your total reach and brand awareness

Keywords - Proper keyword selection and implementation can have a significant impact on your traffic

With a new website there are many topics I undertake but forum posting is always high on my list and starts the ball rolling, within a few days you will see traffic arriving and possibly some long tail keywords to help you on your way also

Keep adding content to your website, focus on the links on your own domain before heading out the door to gain inbound links, I am not saying inbounds links are not top priority but house keeping your own domain should also take preference

Good luck with your campaign
