SEO: Generating traffic to your new site

While this is just a brief overview of the methods for getting traffic to your site, it should give you a basic understanding of how it works. The task of getting and keeping traffic coming to your site is never a one-shot deal.

It’s an ongoing process that lasts as long as you have a website.

Yahoo Search Engine

Bing Search Engine

Being listed in search engines is one thing and being listed on the top lists of the search engines is another thing. When someone searches for a certain keyword through the search engine, the most popular websites appear first and are usually the most visited websites. There are factors that search engines consider when they rank websites according to keywords.

Why Search Engine Optimisation is so important? Because no matter how good your website is and looks, there are thousands and thousands of other similar websites, and it’s very easy to get lost in the ocean called Internet.

It is very important to make a search engine friendly and high ranking website, rather than simply creating a great looking website with a lot of cool menus and pretty graphics. Unfortunately, search engines are not taking into consideration how nice your website is to look at, or how cool your pictures or flash are.

Your website needs to contain the necessary titles, descriptions, keywords and other tags required to be read and indexed properly by leading search engines, like Google, Yahoo or Bing. Choosing the wrong keywords can throw off your entire search engine optimization strategy, so you need to invest some time and make sure you do it right.
