Default Advertising/ Increasing Web Traffic

Hi All,

Could anybody share their experiences on how to increase the web traffic i.e. number of visitors on your website? Advertising to the right crowd is a challenge as well. I've just set up my online shop and would be appreciate to receive some advices or experiences.

Thanks in advance!!

1) online advertising using google adwords or yahoo panama. Depends on your keywords. It will normally cost you around 20-40 cents per click. However, in the long run, this is not a good solution.

2) search engine optimization. This is a process to get your targeted keywords to be as high as possible on most major search engines (google, yahoo, bing, msn and aol). If you have $$ to spend, it will be much easier to increase and maintain your website page rank, incoming links, etc. Depending on your keywords competitiveness, it may cost you $0 to 5 digits to get listed high up there in the search page. webceo is a good tool to monitor your traffic rank.

Hi there fancypocket!

Thanks for the advice. I dropped the idea of adwords as like you mentioned, it would work well on the basis of being a short term solution. I have done the adding of my url and am currenlty working my way with the search engine optimization. I am still open to other avenues!!

Oh and coincidentally, i did walk into your store at Plaza Sing yesterday evening! Great stuff and all the best!!!

2sweet2, yes, organic search is the best solution.

Some general pointers:
1. Name all items even your images or directories, do not use cryptic naming like TU4565, use "hello_kitty_pink_purse_small".
2. Cross-link within your website.
3. Consistently update your website.

thanks!

You may wana advertise your website at those popular blog, but they will charge a certain fee for it. This will create an instant high traffic to your website for a few days but whether will increase your sales got to depend on your product oso =D
