It is often said that getting traffic is the lifeblood of every internet business.
So, in this video I share with you what I consider to be the top 20 sources of web traffic available on the internet.
I countdown from number 20 (my least preferred) to number 1 which is the ultimate way to get more visitors to your website!
Click PLAY below to get started… (I hope the noisy guitar doesn’t put you off!).
I created this video as part of Pat Flynn’s Reader Challenge over at his Smart Passive Income blog. Hence this video is a little “different”!
What do you think? Please drop a comment below and speak your mind!…
That’s a very nice, high-quality video. You can tell that you spent some time on it. I look forward to your future products and posts since it looks like you really put forth some effort. 🙂
Hey Alex, thank you for you kind comments – really glad you enjoyed the video!
Looks like you produce some great content on your own site too. I’ve signed up for your list and will be be sure to check out your future updates.
Nice Website and I like Your All Posts And In this post you use all the high quality videos and i never find any video like your videos thanks dude for sharing that information with us…
Thanks very much – I’m really glad you are enjoying the content.
Hey Nice post, when i saw the articles heading itself i felt a smell of some videos 😛 Anyway good post buddy liked it 🙂
Thanks Zohan – Nice to see you over here! Cheers, Rob.
That was really interesting Rob and the quality is pretty good too, puts my videos to shame!!
I didn’t totally agree with the order of your list, but then I realised that the best ways of getting traffic would be different for whatever niche you are in. You are probably more or less on the button for Internet marketing, but real world products would alter things. I still do really well with social bookmarking on my niche sites, but it’s articles that I bookmark not sites.
You tied Alexa ranking in with traffic but it doesn’t really mean anything because it is Internet marketers who mainly use the toolbar. My article directory dropped from 70,000 to over 250,000 when I changed from the article dashboard script to wordpress but the traffic doubled, mostly coming from those looking for information rather than somewhere to submit their articles so I didn’t care about the Alexa.
Your number one made me think and then I realised how right you are. I experienced that in offline marketing when I had my own commission paying products, so maybe it’s time for me to start rolling them out again.
Thanks for the comments Patricia. Glad you enjoyed it – I did say it might be a little controversial at the beginning! 😉
It’s interesting what you say regarding the social bookmarking. I used sites such as Social Marker to heavily promote my non-Internet Marketing niche sites with very little benefit. Maybe I was doing it wrong? To be fair I was promoting the posts on my sites and not really for article marketing (if I understood you correctly?). In light of your comments perhaps I should have another go with bookmarking…
You make a very good point regarding Alexa too – I really should have mentioned this!
When I said articles I meant posts, but they turn into articles for the directories eventually. I used Onlywire with the article directory for months but it didn’t seem to make any difference. Tried Traffic Bug with the same non results. Went back to just bookmarking the best posts on my niche blogs and directories but not so heavily.
Digg is ok but Stumbleupon works the best for me. It’s always high in the traffic stats and a good amount of the posts go viral. Twitter is good sometimes, but everything is automated there. I think that bookmarking is probably more powerful for those who participate in the sites rather than hit and runners like me.
Thanks for the great tips Patricia! That’s really valuable information. Maybe I’ll have another look at Sumbleupon in the near future.
Thanks for sharing your top ten tips. The one tip I find most infuriating is the “video marketing”. I find they are generally too long and the length of the video is not normally stated. As a result I normally erase the article as soon as I discovered that a video is attached. If I am warned beforehand of the length of the video, then I MIGHT set it aside, to watch it later.
Once the gist of the article is given, which shouldn’t be more than 5 minutes in my view, then a site should be given where more details could be obtain.
You’re welcome, glad you enjoyed this 🙂
Yes, video can be annoying especially when the controls are removed and you don’t know how long the video is. I tend to close the browser window too!
