The quickest way to get more traffic to your site is to do pay per click. PPC – your ads go live on Google, Yahoo or MSN. Every time a user clicks your ad you have to pay the search engines a bit of money. The amount depends on the niche you are in. Some niches like credit cards, mortgages or refinancing are very expensive and can cost up to $25 a click. Others will cost you only a few cents. Out of the three search engines Google is the best. It gives you the best results (they have 70% of the search market) and real quick as well. It is easy to set up an account and get going fast. Lear more about Google Ad words.
If your niche site is about computers, write an article about “running your computer virus free & smooth”. Post this article in article directories like ezinearticles, goarticles etc. Have a resource box at the bottom with your details and a link to your site. Those who read your articles will visit your site out of curiosity. Soon you will have a decent stream of traffic. If your article is really good it will be posted in blogs and other sites as references. After a while your article will be in hundreds of sites. Each site will send you a few visitors. The other benefit is your article will produce traffic for months – possibly years to come and send you traffic.
Another way to get traffic fast is by blogging. Set up a WordPress site and write a few articles recommending products. Sign up for the products in affiliate networks.
