Targeted Traffic Is The Secret For Great Online Profits!

What’s a targeted traffic made of?

The people that wants to find on Internet, what you are offering on your web site, and visit your web site, are called targeted traffic

What kind of traffic will visit your web site?

You will be visited by:

*  People that where looking for other kind of products and services and arrived there by mistake
*  People that are looking for similar things to those that you offer at your site
*  People that are looking for what you have to offer

You must certainly try to avoid the visits of the first group, and encourage the second and the third group people

The second group, are targeted traffic, and even when they are not going to buy YOUR products, may buy Affiliate Program’s products offered at your web site or provide you a source of income through Adsense

And the third group, is the kind of targeted traffic that’s going to arrive to your web site, with a desire of finding what you are offering, and most probably buy it from you.

The targeted traffic might not be in a buying mood the day that they visit your web site, but they will be receptive to your offerings, and if you give them a reason to return to your web site (having a good content site), they might buy from you in the future.

You may have heard that what you need in order to do a good business with Internet is traffic, tons of traffic. But you don’t need just traffic, you need TARGETED traffic because is the only kind of visitors that will provide you a revenue.

So you don’t need any visitors, you need qualified or targeted visitors that will respond with a positive attitude, and will want to read what you say at your site.

Can you do business with untargeted traffic?

Yes, you can, but it will cost you much more money and time to do it.

For every 100 or 1000 bulk untargeted visitors you might find one that’s really interested in your offer, but if you are in a pay per click campaign you will need to pay for 100 or 1000 clicks to get each sale.

If you are trying to drive traffic through the search engines, is the same, you will need 100 or 1000 times more visitors to get the ones that really care for what you offer.

How can you get targeted traffic?

The most cost efficient way to attract targeted traffic to your web site, is utilizing the search engines, the directories, and links from other related sites.

And how will they provide you with targeted traffic?

They will do it if you reach a high ranking, because if you have the right product or service for your targeted customers, and when they search for it on the search engines or directories, you have your site on place 400, they most likely NEVER find you or buy from you.

So high ranking on the search engines will not only provide you with your targeted traffic, they will also provide you with credibility, and people that find you on their lists, will arrive to your web site, with the kind of mood that you need in a visitor.


Back Links And Link Building Services

Link building Services are services that can provide back links to help your website climb in rank. These services can prove to be a crucial component of website building as they give you access to the various back links you need.

Back links are where you get another website to link to your website. This helps your website climb in rank in the Google Page Rank. Basically this determine what page and place your website is located. So the closer you are to the first page the better.

Google’s search algorithm, which is called Search Engine Optimization (SEO) looks for various things to determine what rank your website is. One of those things are back links, which are one of the more important factors.

The back links operate in a number of ways. This is why Link building Services are so important as they help you build up your back links.

One of the ways back links work is quantity. The more back links you have the better as it increases the chances of driving traffic. The more traffic your website has the higher the chances are of you making a sale.

Secondly, back links can work by popularity. What I mean by this is that if you get a high ranked site to back link to your site, this carries over. So that high ranked site’s URL is in the back link and that further draws people to your website.

Lastly, you need to make sure the back links are relevant. The more off topic your back links are the more useless they are. You need links from websites similar to yours that deal with the same product or information. If you get back links that really have nothing to do with your website, they will be pretty much worthless.

Those three factors work in tandem with one another. Your back links should abide by all three of those. You need to make sure your links are relevant, try to get them from high ranked sites, and make sure you get a lot of them. If you do not do all three of those you wont be getting the most out of those links.

Link building Services are what allow you to get links that fit all those parameters. They can provide you with links from high ranked sites and that fit all those criteria. However a lot of these services require a fee of some sort. On top of that they might remove your links if you cancel or quit. So when looking into such services make sure to do your homework and find one that works for you.

Another thing you should keep in mind is there are two types of back links. There is reciprocation and one way. Essentially the reciprocation back links are just as they sound. Their site will link to you but your site will also link to them. This can be a double edged sword since it makes you climb rank, but it also helps your competitors climb in rank as well.

The other link, the one way one, allows their site to link to yours without you linking to yours. This is the best one to use since it helps you climb up in rank without allowing them to climb up. It is also harder to get, but is also the type provided by link services.
