After creating and launching your new website; you will immediately realize that getting traffic to your new website, is the first essential step to start making sales.

Without high volumes of targeted traffic, your business ceases to exist, regardless of how fantastic your website creation is.

It’s like a tree falling in the woods.  If no one is there to see it; does it exist?

Getting traffic to your new website follows the same analogy; your website doesn’t exist if there’s no one there to see it.

So, the challenge to your online business success is TRAFFIC.

The critical first steps to getting traffic to your new website are briefly described below and are in no particular order.

Having all of your relevant keywords on your website, is the first step in getting traffic to your new website.

Relevant keywords, and keyword phrases that are related to the topic of your web pages and posted articles, are important to the search engines for ranking purposes.

The more specific your keywords and keyword phrases are to the topics; the more accurate the search engine results will be, for that particular keyword.

This means that your website will rank higher in the search engine results, when the topic of your article, is specifically targeted in the search query.

If your website is about seahorses, and you are writing about pygmy seahorses; your keywords for that article should be PYGMY SEAHORSES, and should be prominently displayed in the SUBJECT, and several times in the CONTENT of your article.

This way when PYGMY SEAHORSES is searched for in a search engine, the spiders will already have your web page indexed under pygmy seahorses, and there will be a higher likelihood of your web page showing up in the results on the first page.

Although keywords will help getting traffic to your new website, you still need to provide them something for them so they spend time on your site, and eventually purchase some of the products or services that you have to offer.

This brings us to QUALITY CONTENT.

The phrase CONTENT IS KING, is something you may have heard about.  If not, it’s time you did.

Publishing unique, high quality content on your website, is essential to draw the search engine robots to your website on a regular basis.

Search engines love new fresh content, and so do your visitors.

The more frequently you publish unique, fresh, high quality content on your website, the faster the search engine robots will index your new site.

Since your website is new, getting traffic to your new website can be made easier by submitting your website’s URL to the search engine directories.

This gives the search engine spiders a “heads up” on your new website, and accelerates the indexing process.

Exchanging some website links, with other high popularity rank (PR) websites, will also aid in getting traffic to your new website.

This takes some time and research on your part, but exchanging links is an effective way to drive traffic to your site, and improve your ranking.

By following these critical first steps, to getting traffic to your new website, you will benefit from an increase in traffic and sales to your online business.
