Some great examples of static website pages are site that is being used for promotion of companies products and services, these type of sites are almost scanty in most of the time because the content that is on them are fixed content (it doesn’t change in most of the case).

Some online web stores usually create this type of website because there main purpose is to use the site to sell the product they displayed on the website store, such as Alibaba and hosts of others. To get more traffic your website, create a blog on your website domain like in this format www.techatlast.com/blog or www.blog.techatlast.com and start posting good contents on it, and make sure to always allow others to write for the site so that the content on it can increase tremendously.

#2. Write Great Guest Posts for other bloggers

Another way to make your website a success in terms of driving good traffic to the site is by writing great guest post for other blogs to publish and with this, your website will get more authority apart from the traffic you will get from the site. As google is seeing your website link on another website with a keyword that relates to your website, it is very sure that eventually your website will start to ranks on that keyword on the google search box and since we all know that google is the best source of traffic.

Research via google search box about other websites in your niche that accepts guest post and then, you can contact the website admin to submit article to their blog for publication so that you can get quality backlinks from the website. But, you have to understand that not all the article you are submitting to other bloggers will get published easily, you need to add more value to the post before sending it out for publication.

#3. Post Good and Informative Comments on Other Blogs in Your Niche

Comment are the paparazzi that make blog post a success and it gives the writer an atmosphere for him to improve on what he is offering on his blog to the readers. With comment, problems will get solved because each contributor will have his/her own point of view on the subject.

Learn to inculcate the habit of engaging with other blogger’s in your niche by commenting on their blogs so that you can use it to get more traffic to your website but you need to have the right attitude towards this. You should not spam the service so that you will not be labeled as spammers on the internet. According to statistics, 70% of blogs on the internet supports website commenting plugin, CommentLuv, which can enable you to get link backs to your latest blog post. If you’re looking for places to get links back to website in your niche, where you can post your comment on- then use this free service. It is free to use online.

#4. Join Social Networking Sites and Network with others

There is nothing you can get from the internet if you don’t make use of networking strategies to drive traffic to your website. Use social networking sites like facebook, twitter and the newly launched Google+ social media from the search engine giant google to promote your website with others freely.

You can subscribe to your friends website facebook pages and also like their business pages and wall and they too in return will in return give you something back by stumbling your site and following your website.

Have you ever heard this saying that “it is not about what you know, but who you know?” This short word is relevant to website promoting a website also. If you become a friend with a blogger or website owner, he will be much more likely to link to your website and send traffic your way. A good way to achieve this is to link to other bloggers first and to establish a relationship via email.

#5. Build Links with Other Blogger, but give good impression first

Network with other bloggers in your niche, you can’t go far if you don’t have people beside you that love to share with you what they have and vice-versa. Many bloggers on the internet are more successful than you are. These types of people love to help others that are coming up to the top once that person does it in the right way (the smart way).

To become the friend of these type of bloggers. It is not that easy but, the only way that I know very well is by reading and following their work and, whenever you are writing anything relating to the person’s niche; you can include reference and link to one of his blog post as this will make him to check out who you are and from this you can win his/her heart.

Once you win the heart of A-list blogger either in your niche or not, you don’t have to struggle anymore but to start producing good quality content.

#6. Create Online Forum on your domain

Forum is another way to make your website a search engine friendly website. If you can manage to build a successful forum just like that of Glen Allsop, it is very sure that very soon your website will become successful even faster than how it supposed to be.

Most of the people that are using the forum will continue dropping contents (posts) on the forum on daily basis and that will make google to love the site and the forum because of the links-through from the blog and forum. You can create a forum like that of Glen if you have the resources required on your site and start getting visitor to it by adding good content on it until the time when you have more readers that are willing to add contents to the forum.

#7. Support Blogging Contests on Other Blogs.

There are different types of websites on the net that deals in blog contest promotion. One example is BlogEngage, you can support a contest on the site, and they will in return link to your website as one of the sponsor of the contest. Apart from the link-back that the website owner will give, you too will have access to promote the contest and therefore use the opportunity to get more traffic to your website.

Donate some bucks to any blogging contest that you see online and they will link back to your website and this will increase your traffic but that depends on the content on your site (the content on your site must have high power to keep your traffic and not to lose them).

8. Use Blog Carnival Contest.

You can find different forms of blog carnivals on the internet that you can use to promote your article and website. The functions of these type of sites is that, there service is a little bit like a contest, different bloggers will come together to provide article on the same topic on the blog, and each blogger have the ability to link back to other bloggers in the post and vice-versa.

The bottom-line is that, at the end of the post submission and publishing, the admin of the site will now display all the links to the each participant site on the their website and with this traffic will keep on coming to your website.

  1. I think creating a blog for your website it very important to get some consistent traffic. This is one of the first advice I give to my clients because it is a great way to build links and also keep in touch with your customers.

  2. Writing consistent articles like you,guest blogging and a lot of other things definitely ushers good amount of traffic!!

  3. Those are very useful tips for those who have an website. Making a blog for an website is such a great way to keep in touch with customers.

  6. Most people tend to ignore the real name issue on blog commenting. Even being anonymous is not a good plus to get comments approved. It is by way of politeness on the part of the blog owner to honor your comment though it seems a spammy one. But I applaud the owner who does helped the commentator to get them approved, the sad thing is the commentator do not come back to give appreciation of the effort on the blog owner.
    A sad experience I had myself too. It should be appropriate to atleast give in by making yourself known, in this way the good friendship builds on the commentator and the blog owner. A good way to promote yourself and your site by way of interacting to real people.
    I just stated this upon seeing the effort done by Mr. Olawale Daniel on the Viagra guy here. Please be kind enough to present yourselves even on the end of your comment place a name, and just be friendly to people especially the blog owner.
    Happy Blogging guys!
