When you are new to the whole idea of websites, like I was at one point and don’t worry we all have been there, the whole idea of getting traffic to a website seems almost downright impossible. Even after you get the basic concept you still get the jitters each time you attempt to take your brand to the next level and increase your traffic.But as complicated as some might think driving traffic to a website is or make it seem, it all goes back to the basics and if you keep practicing them you will grow over time.
Today I have decided to create a custom Infograpghic for you guys to get my point across, it’s my first one and basically like your first time I was nervous and just had fun in creating the custom Infographic I am about to share with you. By the way did I mention I love Graphic design and it’s one of my hobbies,also note by no means am I an expert.
So without further delay I would like to present my own personal Infographic that I have designed on getting targeted traffic to your website, enjoy:
Why should I submit my website to the Various Webmaster tools?
After writing a great article the next logical step is to market your content so as to have it discovered by potential readers to whom it will be of benefit, right?, well most Bloggers suck at this and like all skills it’s something that can be developed, owned and grown, but simply creating content and hoping for it to be discovered is not enough.
When you submit your articles to Google Webmaster tools for example, it allows Google to better analyse your content especially when it’s updated and serve it up to potential readers that might find it most useful.Best of all you can sit back after all the handwork and reap the benefits.
You may find the following articles helpful towards your goals in adding and verifying your Blog in the various webmaster tools:
What is Pingomatic.com?
If you are unfamiliar with Pingomatic it’s a God send for those that have just finished an article, what you do is basically go to the page and fill in the particulars about your website right after creating new content and simply ping away. The free service basically tells Google and other search engines that you submitted your links to as a part of there webmaster tools that you have updated. This will trigger the search bots to crawl and index your content.Eventually sending you search traffic providing your content is original and useful to readers.
So make sure after your first ping your blog to bookmark the page and read load it each time you update from bookmarks so as not to input the info each time, simply this is a life saver and make it a habit to use this service after every update of your blog.
Submit your Articles to top tier Social Media websites
By top tier I mean the best, you don’t necessarily need to use every Social media website, simply stick to the best and in my opinion I find that to be: StumbleUpon, Google Plus, Facebook and Pinterest. Simply make some friends and fans and this will go a long way towards the prosperity of your website.
Also be sure that your content is easy to share as this will help in seeding your content to many other readers.
