A traffic jam in real life is all but a pleasant activity. There are people stuck in them that are raging mad, saying things that are all too colorful and numerous to mention here. But when it comes to your website, a traffic jam is a wonderful thing! There is no point in having a website with no traffic, is there? We have all went through the frustration of not being able to obtain traffic to our websites, so it is not a feeling that we aren’t familiar with.
Let’s say that you have just bought a store in Oxford St., London. No matter how much of a high dollar store it is, without traffic, you have nothing. You might be selling the best top designer labels that the industry has to offer. Your products might very well be better than all of the rest, but if no one is there to see what you are offering to them, where is the beauty and success? There is none. All that’s left is you standing there, all alone, and without a single visitor or customer. It is enough to make you want to give up hope. But if you take that very same store and move it on down the street where the people are plentiful, then you have got a major booming business on your hands with lots of visitors, customers, and money.
Some of the top name brand stores aren’t even making as much as certain websites are. Even you, the average Joe, can be doing what these people are doing for themselves. You too can create a great website and attract visitors. Get a traffic jam. It’s the internet, and that is where traffic jams are gladly welcome! Keyword your content to the maximum, spice up your page with eye-catching graphics, and host your site somewhere that it will grab the most attention. Find out what people are searching for by doing some research on some of the search engines. Type in a phrase or word and see who your competition is. The key is to attract people to your website. Since it isn’t on an actual street, your focus must be on getting the traffic to come your way.
Look at some other people’s websites and see what their pages look like. You can think of this method as following the traffic and trying to land right in the midst of it. Try to make your page better than the competition. Knowing who your competition is can be very helpful when attaining traffic. One by one, people will start traveling to your site, and before you know it, you will have a page full of visitors. This activity becomes more rapid over time, however, because you will be constantly adding updates, sending out newsletters, and useful information about your site. The word starts to spread rapidly when people feel that if they have found a site that they can come to on a regular basis. Updates are what keep your site fresh and new, allowing the visitors to feel like they are getting something new each time that they drop by. A traffic jam to your website never made it look so good!
Go for it… you can do it!
