Internet Traffic – Is Finding Your Site Like Looking For a Needle in a Haystack?

Let’s cut straight to the chase. Internet traffic is the lifeblood of a website. No matter what the purpose is of any web-site – you are going to need visitors. Whether it’s getting a message across, selling a product, or providing a service, you need visitors.

Unlike the “real world” your virtual space will not attract any visitors at all “by accident” unless you are extremely lucky.

It is like looking for the proverbial “needle in a haystack”. With tens of billions of websites, you need to ask yourself “How would anyone come across mine?”

It can seem very depressing. If you work out the odds of someone finding your message by accident, well it is billions to one.

So how do websites succeed in their aim? How do you successfully get your message across? The strange thing is, it really isn’t as hard as you think.

There are many very ethical and inexpensive ways of driving or pulling traffic to your web-site.

There are choices for those new to web mastering. You see it boils down to how much automation of the traffic generation process you want to do.

Finding simple-to-master techniques that can be applied both to your site directly in terms of SEO (search engine optimization), as well as off site promotion is not as hard or expensive as you might think.

The good news is, at a very basic level all of this can be done for free. The disadvantage of the “free” way is that it can be very time consuming, and the results might also take a long time to materialise.

An equation would have “time spent” on one side of the scales and “money spent” on the other. It is up to you which side you leverage.

It is worth looking at both side of this equation though. Some very effective methods of automation are also very cost effective.

If you value your time, it might be worth checking some of these out.
