tips to get traffic to your website

What are the top tips to get traffic to your website? This is a question I am very often asked by readers of this blog, or students of my classes. From time to time I like to share some of these questions and answer them publicly. This is my favorite way of sharing questions with us all and to open a discussion.

If you have any questions regarding anything to do with marketing, this is where you will find the answers. Just pop your questions in the comment section at the bottom of this page. and sit back for the answers.

For this week I have selected one that I received from Tom and I promised him a reply as soon as possible. So here you are Tom, I hope that you are reading this today.

This is what Tom said in his email: “I have been a blogger since a few months now. I need to know what I should do to improve my traffic rate so that I can make money from my ads? What ate the tips that you can give me – Tom.”

There are many things you can do to drive traffic to a blog. It is a matter of testing and analysing the results, tweaking, and trying again, till we find what works best for us and our niche.

Here are some that I have been using very successfully for years.

First of all you need to have an account with LeadsLeap. The basic level is free and will work as well to give you an idea. But I highly recommend that you invest in the PRO status. It is not expensive and they have a special offer at the moment, so if you hurry you might still be in luck. I have a PRO account with LeadsLeap and it is basically unlimited what you can do with it. Once you have that, just follow the 3 easy steps below.

3 Great Tips To Get Traffic To Your Website (Really Easy!)

So let’s get started and as I promised, it is “really easy“. If you have any questions, please feel free to post them in the comments box at the bottom. You will very quickly receive the help you need, either from me, or a reader, or both. So go for it!

1 – Go and set up your LeadsLeap ads

tips to get traffic to your websiteThe easiest and most effective way to drive traffic to your blog (or website for that matter) is to set up your LeadsLeap adverts. If you have done your homework and have created an ‘okay’ written ad, it should drive some traffic to your website or blog. Once you upgrade your account, it will drive much more traffic to your website or blog. If you have subscribed to a free account, make sure that you have some credit left in your account. Otherwise, you might need to build a team that you can advertise to. All this is explained in details in the training section. So don’t worry if everything doesn’t make sense to you right now.

Then, next…

2 – Build a list

Okay, we have heard this over and over: “the money is in the list”, and yes, it is. If you are a blogger, you need to understand the pros and cons of a blog:

A blog is ideal for attracting Search Engine Traffic and for building a relationship with your prospects. But it is not very effective in retaining traffic, especially traffic generated from advertising. On the other hand it would be in the case of a website.

tips to get traffic to your websiteIt means that if you promote your blog, chances are that you are driving traffic ‘through’ your blog, meaning that the traffic just comes in and goes out.

Personally, I call this a waste of time and effort!

You should seek to retain this traffic, in other words, you should build a list, so that you can drive this traffic back to your blog or website again and again, and use it for other promotions.

You can easily build your hot list using the two tools provided in LeadsLeap. which I am going to explain them now:

  1. List Builder Script: Install this script to your server and you are ready to build a list (as well as a full-fledged business).
  2. SlideSense: Embed a simple HTML code to your blog to send your blog traffic to your opt-in form (extremely powerful).

This may sound a bit alien to you right now but it is all well laid out in each of the sections of your LeadsLeap back office and it will become very clear as you follow the step by step instructions.

And finally, here is the third and last of my tips to get traffic to your website:

3 – Practice search engine optimization

If you are running a blog, but not practising proper search engine optimization, you are missing the greatest power of blogging.

tips to get traffic to your websiteI have written many articles, and discussed it with my students at classes I run, to teach how to become an expert in search engine optimization. Also there are some extremely reliable programs out there worth going for. One of them is the world famous Wealthy Affiliate program which will teach you just about everything you need to know about blogging, and as much as making you money blogging.

I have been a Premium member with Wealthy Affiliate for a while and I successfully train people in my team. I am presently in the top 100 with mention “Top Helper“. If you decide to join (it’s free), you will automatically fall in my team. It is a guarantee for your success!

Make sure to read the article I have written on Wealthy Affiliate. Many other members have succeeded after following my advice and training. There is no reason why you should not become a success story as well.

So these are my tips to get traffic to your website. Make good use of them and wish you the very best for your online venture.

    This is interesting. I run a blog right now and have wanted to build an email list, but have not started yet because I don’t feel like I have enough traffic. One day I am hoping to see enough traffic that I can begin to retain some of those visitors and get increased amounts of traffic.

      Thanks for visiting and commenting Austin. I understand your point but if I were you I wouldn’t wait to start collecting subscribers to your blog. Maybe, the one that just visited your blog and left would have been the big one, you’ve lost it Austin, and you have no way of contacting him/her.

      Now if you want to get more traffic to your blog, I have recently written an article that might interest you:  Get More Traffic To Your Website (3 Super Strategies)

    Great read John! These are great tips to increase traffic, what appealed to me the most was the leadsleap ads. I really need to drive some traffic to my websites but I’m still in the process of designing them. When do you think is the best time to apply and sign up to this?

    Hi there, I am at the stage where I think I could initiate list building to convert some of my traffic into sales. But I am a little confused as to where to capture the emails.

    Do I do a pop-up or end-of-the-page optin? What does your own experience tell you? Maybe you can provide me some insights. Thanks!

      Thanks very much for your comment and questions Cathy. Pop-up, pop-under, exit-pop-up, end-of-the-page optin? A lot of techniques to collect emails, and more are created as we speak. 

      Personally, I prefer the non invasive form which is the end-of-the-page optin. But it is not necessarily the most effective. One that I use on many of my blogs is the discreet SlideSense by LeadsLeap.

      In fact, if you have not done so yet, have a look at my review on LeadsLeap, you will find everything you need to get started and build your mailing list, from lead capture pages to popup creator, auto-responders, etc. and it is free to join.

      If you have any questions please ask them here so that we can all benefit from the responses.

      I wish you an awesome ‘wealth building’ day!

      Hi Rich,

      Thanks for visiting my website and for your comment. Leadads is different from LeadsLeap. At Leadads you buy (very expensive) leads, which is the last thing to do if you want your website to remain in the good books of the search engines. 

      LeadsLeap is a platform dedicated in helping the online marketer (newbies as well as seasoned marketers) to expand their business by making available a number of tools and advertising platforms for free to their members, whether FREE or PRO members alike.

      If you have not done so yet, I would recommend that you join LeadsLeap here as a free member and see for yourself how it can help grow any business or niche you are trying to promote. 

      Best wishes,

      John ツ

    Hello John, I really appreciate your sharing for the who is already retired but it is also really helpful for the beginner like me. The topic “How To Get More Traffic To Your Website” is really interesting and I am really in love with your website. Thank you for such great tips 🙂

      Thanks very much for your visit and comment on my site KyleRika. My website is really for everybody and most especially for clever people like you. 

      Why wait for retirement time to create something of our own that will supplement our retirement income? Knowing already very well that it will not be sufficient for us to live comfortably. And that is definitely not going to improve. 

      Unfortunately, most people are waiting for things to happen, except just a few people like you who know that the time to prepare for retirement is long before retirement time has come.

      Wise people take action and invest their free time early on into creating a business of their own. If they don’t know what to do or how to do it, I can highly Wealthy Affiliate which was created with the “Mr/Mrs Everybody” in mind. It has built fortunes for thousands of people around the globe already.

      Please make sure to contact me at any time if you have any questions, okay?

      I wish you an awesome ‘wealth building’ day!

I myself have been using the world famous Wealthy Affiliate platform to help me master search engine optimization, and it is quite a blessing as my traffic has been getting bigger every day.
