You have to get in the game to have a chance at winning and then you must know how to play the game to ever expect. to win!

Without traffic, you will struggle to build a customer base, generate revenue or even build an online brand of your own.

There are literally hundreds of different ways of driving in targeted traffic to your website,  but this is different.  I don’t waste time covering outdated, costly or confusing strategies and instead, focus on the frontier method of all the FREE traffic generation strategies out there – article marketing. 

Who Is Your Target Market?  

Do a key research with Google Keyword Tool.  

Fortunately, keyword research is a relatively simple process.  If you know what you’re doing, you can research plenty of good keywords for your niche in just a few minutes.

For the most part, head keywords are always targeted by a greater number of competition as they are a short-form description of a market, and long tail keyword phrases will generate less traffic, but are much easier to dominate within the search engines.

Savvy marketers focus on long tail keywords and gauge their exposure by a COLLECTIVE count of all traffic generated from multiple long-tail keyword based campaigns.

You can quickly conduct keyword research for you rniche market just by using free online services, including

In order to conduct keyword research, you have to begin by entering in what is referred to as a “seed” keyword, basically a starting point to your keyword research.

The seed keyword is a short term describing your market, niche or potential products you are considering promoting.

Next, click “Get keyword ideas”.

On the next page, you will see the results of your search.  

 

NOTE: Your results won’t be sorted by traffic, so you need to click “Global Monthly Search Volume” at the top of the results.  This will sort the results by traffic volume from highest to lowest.

 

 The first column provides you with alternative keyword phrases that you could use within your content as well as with search engine optimization or promoting your product within PPC marketplaces.
The second column indicates the level of competition, and in our example above, nearly all of the featured keyword phrases are being heavily targeted by competitors.

The third column indicates the estimated number of searches for each particular keyword, based on monthly volume.

 

 You want to look for keyword phrases that receive at least 300 searches per month according to the tool.  Each phrase could receive a lot more or a lot less than the tool shows, so keep that in mind.  

 

You then want to turn to Google’s main search engine at http://www.Google.com to complete your keyword research.

You begin by entering in each keyword phrase, directly into the search engine, wrapping your entire phrase in quotes, like this:

“golf swing techniques”

 

The reason it’s so important to contain your search query in quotes is due to keyword proximity, relevancy an to make sure you are given an accurate idea as to the overall competition of the keyword.
Google and other search engines give more weight to sites with an exact phrase quote than when the words aren’t in such close proximity, so by wrapping your text in quotations (example “dog training tips”), only pages that feature your entire keyword phrase will appear within the search results window.

 

Article Marketing Traffic Machine

There are a few important ingredients to creating high performance Article Marketing campaigns that maximize the overall effectiveness of your marketing efforts, while ensuring that you receive the most exposure.

1)  Keyword Search

2)  Each article should be between 500 and 800 words in length with useful information

3)  Vehicle to syndicate your article for maximum exposure

4)  Back links from these article directories based on the number of articles featured that contain links to your website within the Author’s Resource box.

 

Article marketing is such a lucrative method of generating traffic to your website. 

Since articles are available for re-print, where webmasters can use your content on their websites and communities, (as long as the Author’s resource box is left intact), you will also be able to build additional back links from the websites that feature your content throughout their network.

Here are the top article directories that you should focus on submitting content to:

http://www.Articles-Hub.com

http://www.SubmitYourNewArticle.com

Remember to create a compelling Author’s Resource box as this is the area where you are able to include a link to your website and direct readers to explore your own personal site. 

You need to focus on using a strong call to action that prompts the reader to click your link and visit your website.

Feature within your article resource boxes free give away to generate traffic and build a list of responsive buyers:

 v    Free Reports

v    Free Ebooks

v    Free Scripts

v    Free Content (PLR, MRR)

v    Free membership (even trial will work)

v    Free video tutorial

If you want to win the game of building your list and gaining traffic you must get your articles out there and circulating.  

To win, you don’t need the best articles, you need the highest QUANTITY OF ARTICLES.  (Give the best quality content you can).

The more articles you have, the more articles people are going to read. The more articles people read, the more click-through links you will get, and the more money you will make.

That is how the system works.
