There are three main reasons a site is not making money. In this article I will show novice bloggers how to get started with simple to follow steps for getting more traffic to your blog or website effectively.

Traffic – Many website owners don’t have a full understanding of statistics and how this relates to conversion to sales. With only a few hundred hits to your site – this is going to only trigger the minimal response. With a conversion rate of 2.5% it would be correct to make a sale, two maybe three times in a month, if your lucky.

How do you fix this?

  • Increase the layer of content on your site, filling information gaps, adding details about your products and maybe adding terms and conditions, or privacy policy pages to bring creditability to your site. Two or three lines of content is not going to cut it. The more the Google bot can see the better chance of you being seen in the search engine.

Targeting and Monetizing – Many site owners will just add any-old thing on there site and think its going to make money, not true.

How do you fix this?

  • This is most important! If you are going to have ads on your site, keep them as targeted as possible.
  • Add Pay Per Click Ads on your site.
  • Monetize with your own products or services.

Little “do it yourself” SEO – It is going to take a little more than a website to be seen on the web, these days. That is why you need to start by doing some small things to help your site be viewed on the web. There are many free things you can-do to get started!

How do you fix this?

  • Outline three keywords for your site and use them on your site.
  • Social bookmark pages on your site for quick indexing of your website.
  • Get free link-backs to your site with comment posting, link-swaps, directory listings.
  • Write articles about your site or about your site niche and post them around the web.

Sound simple? It is, but this is really the point, anyone can kickstart the traffic on their blog quickly by just doing a little work. These  are the same steps I used to turn my blog into a massive traffic machine! *see my results here >>>http://successfromscratch.scottrasher.com/
