Search Engine Optimization is one of the most brilliant ways to get website traffic. But it is not the only way. Let us make clear that we are not discouraging the use of SEO techniques to get traffic to your website. But it is always good to mix up some non-SEO techniques with your SEO techniques to keep your traffic diversified. Keeping all your eggs in a single basket is never a good idea, especially, when you are dependent on an ever-changing thing like search engine algorithm.
So here are some great non-SEO tips for generating website traffic.
Paid Ad Campaigns – The ultimate focus of SEO techniques are to bring you on the first page of the SERP. But, you necessarily do not need to have the top quality content and lots of on-page and off-page SEO techniques to be visible on the top of the search result page. You can get this visibility by getting involved in paid ad campaigns too. But, be sure to choose the landing page of our ad campaign wisely as paying for advertisement is useless if you can’t convert the generated lead.
Guest Posts – Although you can find guest post listed with SEO techniques, it is not technically related to SEO. Anyways, what you need to do is to search for top blogs in your niche and pitch them for contributing a guest post. Even if you are not getting to build a backlink to your website, guest post is a good idea. A simple byline introducing you and your company can do the magic. If the readers find your write-up interesting and useful, they’ll surely search and come to your website.
Third party services – If you want to increase the traffic on your website to improve your Google analytic metrics then you can use some third party services. It is interesting to note that few such services provide free website traffic for as long as want. It might sound too good to be true but you have got the option of creating automated traffic to your website that looks same as real human traffic to the search engine.
Blog Commenting – Commenting and replying to comments is a good way to get connected to your audience. But, why focus only on your existing audience? Yes, we are not talking about commenting on your own blog posts (that you’ll do without being told). Make a list of blogs and websites in your niche and start visiting them regularly. Wherever on the web, you find some discussions on the topic related to your business, get involved in the discussion. This way you can attract your competitors’ audience to your site without creating a mess. This technique is also good for using on discussion forums and question answer website like Quora.
Do all you need to do in order to make your website captivating. But do not sit quietly and wait for the traffic to come and check what you have done. Go and make some noise all over the internet and you’ll see people following you back to your website.
