Doing business online boils down to two things real – traffic and links. Traffic is important because without it you can’t close any sales. It takes traffic to make conversions. Where you get your traffic from isn’t as important as getting targeted traffic. If you drive traffic to your website that is qualified and ready to buy then you have good traffic. It’s the most important thing for any website.
Links are a means of driving traffic. With links you can build a solid base of targeted traffic that shows up at your doorstep over and over again, day in day out. Where you place your links is very important in the overall scheme of things because if you put them in the wrong places you run the risk of not getting any traffic at all or getting the wrong kinds of traffic. But links do one other thing as well.
The second benefit to building links back to your website is that those links have the potential to push you up in the search engine rankings. Do it right and you can target specific keywords to rank for, push your pages up in the rankings, and increase your traffic through organic search listings.
One of the best ways to increase your traffic through links to write articles and submit them to other websites and directories that act as repositories for your ideas. If you take a list of keywords and write ten articles for each keyword and distribute those articles to strategic websites where your qualified traffic is known to frequent then you can drive targeted traffic to your website over and over again. This will be qualified traffic that you can sell to over and over again.
