How to get more traffic to your website.

If you are new to the world of the Search Engines, then this article is for you. This article gives you some hints tips and general advice about how to get more traffic to your website especially from Google who are currently the leading Search Engine.

How it works

Google organises pages by relevance, which is a combination of the text on the page and the number and quality of links into that pages from other pages on the internet and what phrase is used within the link (known as its anchor text) Some phrases will be obscure and others competitive. Some pages can have a handful of links, others can have millions. If you are trying to compete with a page that is both well written and has a huge number of links then you are going to find it very hard work indeed to get anywhere.


Choosing a keyword that is appropriate and realistic to compete under is the first step, we recommend using the Google Keyword tool which can be found from within their Google Adwords product. This shows the number of searches per month for each phrase you select. This will therefore give you a good idea of how much value there will be to getting to the top of the search engine results for that phrase.

Ideally you need to find a niche for your pages, one where the competition is reasonable but the phrase is still valuable for your needs.

This factor is the biggest one, and can require 99% of the effort involved in getting the results you are looking for.

Other page factors
