Increase Your Web Traffic

Last Tuesday I read an interesting post advertisement in the PBS Yahoo Groups. The title of the post has something to do with increasing your web traffic. The moment my eye caught the title, I immediately clicked the link. Of course, who in the world that doesn’t want more traffic in their blog sites?

Anyway, when I went to the site to read the post, I got pissed off that the article was unfinished. I got the impression that it’s only a trick to attract people to view his blog. Oh well, after I made a comment to his post as well as his message in the PBS Yahoo groups, people had started commenting bad remarks to him.

Just yesterday, I went back to his blog and checked if the post was already done. The post was finally complete and I learned something from it. The post had inspired me to try optimizing my blog with SEO keywords. It also brought me to research about stuffs to increase my web traffic.

So far, here are the things that I have learned from my search engine optimization research. First, you need to prepare a list of keywords related to your site. You should be okay with two to four words. After that, you need to search for those keywords in Google Labs. If you returned a zero result for that keyword, you need to cross that out and move on to the next keyword. If there are search results, you need to take note of the number of results and the number of back links each sites has. Same rules apply, if it has a humungous number of links then you should not compete with it unless you have time and resources to do so. If you’re confident that you can beat the leading site with your own site then the next thing to do is the placement of these SEO keywords to your site. Just be careful of placing too many keywords, search engines might consider your posts as spam.

Would create a follow-up post about this. Would test first if my own keywords helped my web traffic to increase.

If you like this post, buy me a cup of coffee.
