Over the last 7-10 years, the economy and job market has been on a steady decline.  With people struggling more than ever and with no light at the end of the tunnel, more and more people are turning to the Home Based Business Industry for financial relief.  Some people are turning to Network Marketing, some are turning to Affiliate Marketing and some are turning to selling products or services on a personal website or blog.  While there is certainly a ton of opportunities available for you in all these areas, the one thing that’s common for all three of these niches is that without a ton of quality traffic being driven consistently to your website, the chances that you’ll succeed are slim to none.  In this article, I’ll cover how to increase web traffic to your website so potential customers can see what you’re offering.
First of all, it’s extremely important to have your website optimized for the search engines.  Keywords, or key phrases, should be placed a few times in the content of your website.  Having the keyword your targeting should also be the title of your website.  If possible, having the keyword, or keyphrase, be the actual domain name of your website will also going a long way in your SEO efforts.  If keywords and keyphrases are used often in the content of your website, search engines will often give good ranking to your website.
Another method of increasing web traffic to your website is Article Marketing.  You can write a well optimized article with backlinks to your website and submit them to article directories like ezinearticles.com.  Keep in mind that your link should be placed in your Resource Box and not in the actual body of your article.
Another very effective and fun method of driving traffic to your website is Video Marketing.  Videos give you a medium to connect with your audience.  And this goes a long way for your business as people always would rather do business with someone they connect with as opposed to somone they don’t connect with.
Social Networking sites like Facebook are also becoming very popular methods of driving traffic to your website.  The advantage with this method, like videos, is that you can connect with your target audience and because you can apply top-of-mind consciousness with sites like Facebook, it is fast becoming one of the top traffic generation methods.  by the way, there are a ton of other Social sites on the web today.  While Facebook is the present “King” of Social sites, you can still generate traffic (and leads) from sites like Bebo.com, Tagged.com, Digg.com, and a host of others.
On a side note, tracking traffic is also important.  Without traffic tracking, you won’t be able to measure your numbers.  You won’t be able to know what’s working and what’s not working.  There are many ways to track your traffic.  You can use website-counters or simply use Google Analytics.
If you’re looking to make money from home on the internet, whether through affiliate marketing, network marketing or a combination of both, keep in mind that increasing web traffic is just as, if not more, important that the look and feel of your website.  Because without traffic, no one will see your website at all.
