How to Add Content for SEO – Organic Traffic Generation for Beginners
Sometimes it’s best to consider all the facts before rushing into something just because it is free.
By reading the next few paragraphs you should find some extremely helpful information about adding quality content to your Internet business website and how it can help you generate some well targeted, organic web traffic to your site.
It’s a given that visitors to your pages are looking for something – specific!
This is why writing for them first makes sense and will enhance the “feel” of your web design efforts.
New content for your visitors to read is essential to your website’s gravity and is a must if you are going to have any success with bringing potential customers to your Internet presence.
Where Does the Information Come From?
Unless you plan to spend most of your time writing, this would be near impossible. What if you have more than one website? 10? 30? How are you going to keep fresh content streaming to all of them? No way!
The answer is in getting other people to write your content for you Did you every hear of web content writers? How can article writers help you? Immensely!!!
Go to your favorite article site like Constant Content and find some writers who have reports listed about your topic.
Pick one that is 400 to 600 words in length. Buy this article and place it on your site. Simple enough?
Free Article Content Web Sites
If income and cash flow is a problem you can always go to one of the many free article sites online where you can use the writer’s content for free with the exception that you must leave the author bio information intact.
You can add comments of your own to make the article more unique for the search engines but this doesn’t take near the time as writing content from scratch!
Now, you will need to create a page on your new money web site that will hold a listing of your articles.
A Contents page or a More Interesting Articles page. This lets your readers know where they can go for updated information or new articles.
It should be a piece of cake for you to update all of your Internet business websites this way while working only a few hours each day. Beats writing all the articles yourself, huh?
One word of caution about using free articles for your content
As good as all this sounds about the free articles online do not go rushing out and build your complete web business based from free content.
You will want some original articles to place in between the others to let your visitors (and the search engines) know that you have a serious web business and not just a collection of other people’s work.
The websites with staying power use this twin method and you would be wise to seek out a good content writer who can produce at least a couple of new articles per week for each website.
Your web business will look more professional and you will earn the respect of your customers and the major search engines.
Article directories are websites that house free articles. These articles are usually put there by whoever owns the copyright to them as a promotion method.
Each article has the owners byline placed under it so that those who eventually read the article will know who wrote it (or at least who owns it) and will be able to get in contact with or visit their website for further information.
Articles directories are sometimes a great place to put your articles so that they will get links back to your site and help to make you money.
By using this method, people who are interested in your product or service will see your article, view you as an expert in the subject, and will visit your website.
Now, with Google’s new alogrythm just beginning, the giants like Ezine Articles don’t have quite the presence they once had but they can still send plenty of juice back to your website.
I still use them to put up some articles and get links for extra traffic generation.
Even if you cannot write or do not have any knowledge on the subject on which you are promoting (for example for you run an affiliate website), you can always hire a writer to do the work for you.
Getting quality articles written will be expensive up front, but they will pay for themselves in no time, either through affiliate sales or selling your own services, and everything from then on is pure profit.
Let’s take a real life example. Imagine that you are an accountant working from home.
You write an article on an accounting topic and place it on various article directories.
Those who are looking for the subject you wrote about will read your article, see that you have the knowledge and skill that is needed to do a job for them, and visit your website or contact you via e-mail.
Your article just gained you a new client who may use your services regularly, but will definitely give you a nice profit at least once.
Furthermore, since you have posted it on a free article directory, others who have affiliate websites about accounting will inevitably use your article for their website content.
Since they must attach your byline to it, this will bring you even more exposure for every website that re-posts your article, as Upkeep Media recommends.
This because you will be benefiting of off the traffic that they get to their website.
There are numerous article directories out there for you to utilize. Your bet best is to put a copy of each of your articles on every one for maximum exposure.
It will eventually help to bring more traffic and customers to your website, which will lead to new orders and more profit.
These are just a few tips for beginners in getting a website started through Internet marketing strategies. No matter if you are designing your site for business or personal use you’ll want it to operate professionally to give visitors a sense of security and benefit.
