Resolving Issues On Search Engine Traffic

Alright, so you know everything you need to know to start generating 1,000 visitors for your website on a daily basis. But our goal is to attain such a number in two weeks' time. You just have to intensify your effort when it comes to the implementation of the strategies we have discussed.

Here are some final considerations you should always remember as you set out to accomplish this goal.

Content Is The Fuel For Search Engine Traffic

The importance of high quality, unique content can never be undermined. Content is that once component of your website that will not only define your online business, but will also establish your reputation before your audience. But for our purposes, content is the heart of our campaign to generate 1,000 visitors per day in a span of two short weeks.

The first thing you should remember is to always supply your website with fresh content. Search engines love regularly updated pages, and if you can provide new content on a regular basis, your chances of bagging that prominent position in the search engine results will get better.

And since we want to generate a lot of traffic within 2 weeks, try to upload new content every other day during the course of this particular campaign.

Once you're averaging 1,000 visitors per day, you can slow down by uploading new content at least twice a week.

On Article Submissions

For the first two weeks after your website goes live, make it a point to submit articles to the article directories every other day. This way, you will be able to secure a lot of chances for your links to be displayed all over the World Wide Web.

Make sure that the articles you will submit to the article directories are unique. They should not be the same articles that can be found on your website. Not only will you confront the perils of presenting duplicate content, but you might also turn off your visitors who are expecting something fresh and new.

On Buying Links

Some people may opt for the easier way to acquire one way links, especially if they have the resources to spend. I am referring to buying links. There are quite a number of online businessmen who have made a living by creating websites, increasing their page ranks, and offering valuable real estate for other webmasters who wish to advertise their links.

There is nothing wrong about this approach.

However, to make the most out of it, you'd want to consider the following guidelines:
  • Buy space from websites with a page rank of 4 or higher. Higher ranked websites will give you the best chance to give a boost to your own website's page rank. They may cost more, but you'll be spending anyway so might as well spend for the best possible option.

  • Determine where, exactly, in the said website's space your links will appear. These websites have a high page rank because they are generating a lot of visitors. You'd want to capitalize on the same as it can be a good source for direct search engine traffic.

  • Choose websites which are related to the subject of your own website.

  • As much as possible, request for in-content links, that is, links that will be displayed within the website's contents.

  • As much as possible, request that your URL be hyperlinked to an anchor term, that anchor term being your keyword or key phrase. This kind of link receives the highest priority from the search engines.
1,000 visitors per day in a span of two weeks from the publication of your website can be done. You already know the strategies and the tools you will need.

It's just a matter of putting them into action.

When website owners refer to search engine optimization (SEO), you will often hear about keywords, content development, meta & title tags and building their link popularity.

Rarely will you hear them mention server setup or how their server could be keeping them from ranking well in the search engines.

You may ask “Why would the search engines care about the server I select or how my server is set up?”

The truth is, the search engines have a lot of advertising dollars riding on your servers’ performance … and so do you.

Should the search engines find your website to be relevant for high traffic phrases, the search engines have the potential to dramatically increase your traffic and your server load.

If the amount of traffic sent to your site overloads the server or causes you a lot of downtime, this affects the user experience. If the user begins to think that a search engine shows results that aren’t working, this can cause the user to decide to turn to another search engine for better results.

Server Checklist

When reviewing your server setup with search engine optimization in mind, there are a number of key areas to look at.

Many of these areas are not something you can personally fix, and often times you will need to contact your web site hosting company for assistance.

The best resource we have found for checking server related issues is www.dnsreport.com. They offer a wealth of information that can help you in determining if there are server issues that need to be addressed.

When you run the reports from DNS Stuff & DNS Reports, you will want to concentrate on the following areas:

a) DNS Server A Records
b) NS Records at Nameservers
c) All Nameservers Respond
d) CNAMEs
e) Open DNS Servers
f) Reverse
g) DNS Timing
h) Shared IP addresses
