"Traffic to Website" Fri Nov-03-06 05:06 PM by mdegills
Hi, My website(www.mdegills.biz)has been up a running for 2months now and I've seen very little traffic. I've sent out the grand opening email to family and friends. I've done the search engine submission with earthlink and I am still not seeing the traffic that I thought I would. What should I do now?

It does take time to generate a lot of traffic, and it takes an ongoing effort. Put your URL on everything. Order some really inexpensive promotional items with your URL. Pens are great because they're so cheap and they get passed around.
You mentioned sending an email to family and friends. Send them some pens and ask them to pass them out for you. If they're all in different cities, that's even better.
Another good place for URLs is on a bumper sticker.
One of the best ways to increase traffic is to do everything you can do encourage repeat visits, especially since they're the ones who will eventually refer your site to others. For your site, a good way to do this might be to sign up people for a newsletter alerting them on special deals.

GREAT IDEA!I really like the pens, I am going to start researching tonight......this is great! I'd giving the bumper stickers a thought but didn't take action but I quess that it's the right thing to do, if I want to make this thing work. Thanks to ALL!
