You think you have a brilliant idea for a website, you generate great (from your point of view) content, but despite this you are short of traffic – search engines are slow to pick up your pages and promote them to the top of their indexes, viral marketing is not that powerful as you expected.
You conclude that your website needs promotion, it needs more traffic. You start your research of the most efficient ways to get that extra traffic by using some marketing techniques like this or this. Your appetite grows – you want more and more visitors as you notice that it leads to an online recognition and a bigger amount of earnings. And here comes a manual or a guide on traffic generation (pdf). It comes from a well known person in affiliate marketing – Allan Gardyne, AssociatePrograms website owner.
The manual is free and in fact lists all efficient tactics for getting traffic to your website or blog. 77 tips plus 2 bonuses. Every tip comes with some comments that make it more understandable – when I was looking through the table of content I could not get some points.
Not every tip is universal. Some tips are great for e-commerce type of website, other work for affiliate marketing websites, etc.
Summary: a well written guide is a collection of useful tips for getting more traffic to your website. It is a free edition – so, grab your copy. Print it out (I prefer using FinePrint tool to make it more comfortable for future reference) and explore the tactics you are not familiar with or have not tried so far.
Most tips cover just the top of iceberg. They show you the direction. Your task is to check if it works for you and try to employ its maximum potential.
