  • ==== ====This is a must see articlehttp://www.social-wizz.com==== ====In order to create a successful web site you must havetraffic or visitors to your site. Without traffic yourperfect site is useless; it might as well not even exist.Moreover, because traffic is an essential element of anysuccessful site, many novice webmasters make the mistakeof believing all traffic is created equal.Huge mistake.For if traffic is King; targeted traffic is God. Alltraffic is good, but there is a great distinction betweenordinary traffic and targeted traffic. Someone clicking ona link to your site who is looking for the exact informationor product you have displayed is said to be a targeted visitor.These are the kinds of visitors or traffic you must try toobtain in your marketing and link building.Why?Because targeted traffic is often the key to building asuccessful site on the web. Targeted traffic will greatlyincrease your sales conversions, bring back repeat visitorsand help your site gain a prominent online presence.So here are 10 targeted traffic building steps you can take:1. Google Is God!Only half-kidding but at least where targeted traffic isconcerned, Google is still the all important being you shouldbe worshipping online. Dont ignore the other two major demigodsYahoo! and MSN, but Google will deliver most of your traffic.Your website stats will point this out to you daily, so you mustoptimize your site for Google.As a general rule make your pages Google friendly by only usingone topic per page, include your keywords in the title, metadescription and url for that page. It would also be helpful
  • to have your main keywords in the first headline on the pageand most experienced webmasters try to place their keywordsin the first 90 words and in the last 25 words. Sprinkle yourkeywords and variations throughout the copy but dont keywordspam, just let the engines know this is what your page is about.2. Target The Right KeywordsYou must target the right keywords in order to getuseful traffic to your site. You must first check thenumber of searches and amount of competition for yourchosen keywords. You can use software like Keyword Eliteor sites like http://www.digitalpoint.com/tools/suggestion/which will give you the Overture and WordTracker monthlystats to help you pick the right keywords for your site.Instead of picking highly competitive keywords, takethe middle road and milk the long tail keywords!Most webmasters create a master keyword list for theirsite then branch off into sub-categories from thismaster list. For example, if you have a site on laptopsyour sub-keyword categories could be laptop accessories,laptop batteries and so on. Similar, most webmastersonly develop their sites in a simple hierarchy with thehomepage as the center with their major keywords as separatepages and then sub-categories branching out from these.Your webpages should not be more than three clicks awayfrom your homepage as this will really displease the searchengine gods!3. Have Relevant ContentPerhaps what will appease the SE gods the most is relevantcontent. Your content has to be relevant to the topic ofyour site. Keep everything on topic and within the scopeof your site.Relevant, helpful content will also be the biggest magnetfor targeted traffic. Surfers are usually looking forinformation, give them what they want and your site willreap the rewards. Original high quality relevant contentwill draw in targeted traffic to your site so make sureyour have some good content to satisfy your visitors andthe search engines.4. Let The Search Engines Find YouInstead of submitting your site to the search engines,
  • let them find your site. One of the best ways to dothis is by placing your links on high traffic/spideredsites: on online forums matching your sites content,on social networks such as MySpace, YouTube, Squidoo...and on articles directories like EzineArticles, Goarticles,and Ideamarketers. The search engines will follow theselinks and index your site before you even know it.5. Use Traffic ModulesOne of the most effective ways to bring in targetedtraffic is to create traffic modules: whole areas of yoursite devoted to one sub-topic. For example, if you havea general site on cars, you could develop a wholesection on a car-buying guide. Another section couldbe on car accessories, link all these pages togetherinto a neat traffic cluster on your site. The searchengines will love these closely grouped pages and rewardyou with lots of targeted traffic.6. Use ArticlesDont forget article marketing, just because it hasbecome extremely popular doesnt mean it has becomeany less effective. Writing short helpful informativearticles on your sites topic is still one of the bestways to get targeted traffic to your site. Place yourlinks with your targeted keyword anchor text in theresource box.Article marketing is an invaluable source not only oftargeted traffic but also one-way links to your site.These links will help increase your rankings, especiallyin Google which considers each link as a democratic votefor your site and ranks each page with a PageRank PR 0-10.Articles are also extremely important for pre-selling toyour potential customers. These articles warm or softenup your prospective buyers to your sales pitch before theyeven reach your site.7. Build Opt-in ListsMost marketers and webmasters use opt-in lists to bringtargeted visitors back to their sites. Instead of justreceiving that visitor once, you can get repeat visitsby using a simple follow-up system with an autoresponder.Studies have consistently shown it might take 6 or 7
  • follow-ups before a potential customer buys.Building a subscriber list will also be helpful in creatinga web community around your site. These community membersmay become your most targeted of all your visitors. Likewise,you should have a bookmark feature on all your pages, anyrepeat visitor is a targeted visitor!8. Have Blogs & RSS FeedsMake sure you have a blog and RSS feed attached to yoursite. This will not only bring in targeted traffic butyour visitors can also subscribe to your RSS feed. Thiswill bring targeted visitors back to your site. Use afree site like Googles own http://www.blogger.com or betteryet create your own blog using free software such asWordPress.9. Use Social MediaBuild links and contacts in all the important socialmedia networks such as MySpace, YouTube and Flickr.These social networks are a great source of verytargeted traffic.10. Use MultimediaPerhaps the biggest opportunity to build targeted trafficis using video and audio media on your site. These willhelp personalize your message or content and build trustwith your visitors. Video clips also have a great viralpotential which will bring in traffic.Sites such as YouTube, Google Video can help you get yourmessage or content in front of millions of eyes overnight.Savvy marketers are already exploiting the traffic potentialof this new multimedia trend overtaking the web, why shouldthey have all the fun? You too, can take advantage of thesefree media sites and pull in targeted traffic to your site.Of course, there are many more ways of getting targetedtraffic to your site. But just using one or two of thesetechniques should increase your targeted traffic in thecoming months. Appease the traffic gods by putting thesesteps into practice and see for yourself.
