As a marketer or business owner, what often comes after customers on a business wish list ? Epic traffic to his website. A good website is just like having an extra employee, one who works 24/7, answer queries, give information and can be the face of the company. There are more than 1.24 billion websites in the world. Hence, there is a lot of competition, but keep in mind that you are not going to attract all internet users, instead your goal is to get more people in your target audience to visit your website.
There are a number of ways through which you can increase your online traffic, but website designing company suggests using these 7 simple ways to increase the amount of traffic that you are getting to your website:
1. The “upside down” guest post
While reading a guest post, most people will not notice the author’s bio. This is because mostly, author’s bio is hidden at the lowermost corner of the page. If people don’t see your link in the author bio, they are not going to visit your site. Here is how you can solve this problem:
After writing a guest post, include a “helpful source” section in your post. But don’t forget to add a link to your content as well, as a helpful source. In this way, you will get about 80% traffic via your guest post.
2. Post on social media on strategic times
Posting on the social media with a great content will go in vain if you are not doing it at the right times. Obviously, you can’t magically know the exact time but there are some strategies to act upon to achieve the desired goal.
For example, the best day to post on Facebook is on Friday. As people seem to be happier and bit more relaxed on Friday, so posting a funny or upbeat content will fit right into that “happiness index”. Posting at 1 pm will get you the most shares, whereas posting at 3 pm will you the most clicks. You can also use Facebook Analytics, to track your audience data and their engagement.
3. Find more keywords with keywords everywhere
“Keyword everywhere” is an extension on chrome that gives you keyword ideas. It is a good alternative for Google keyword planner. You just have to install it. After that, give your API key by entering your email address. Now you can easily use it, get a bunch of keywords, upload them, take the search volume and then download them. Downloads are available in PDF, Excel and CSV formats.
4. Retarget visitors with Facebook Ads
Retargeting the visitors is an effective way of convincing the customers in the digital marketing because it will earn you more profit. Using the feature, “Facebook custom audience”, you can place a unique “cookie” in their browser that lets the user be anonymously identified as having visited your website. The user “cookied” in this way makeup what we call a Retargeting audience.
Once you have created an audience for your Facebook campaign, you can use Perfect Audience to create an ad campaign that will reach those people on Facebook in ads, on the right sidebar or in their News Feed.

6. Optimize your content with LSI keyword

LSI are phrases or words most relevant to your target keyword. One basic rule is that using your keyword as much as possible on your blog will certainly get you good rankings but using keywords more than enough can result in a penalty.
For instance, let’s suppose you wrote a post about social media. Your LSI keywords would be phrases or words like:
So, when Google sees these LSI keywords in your content, it says Great! This content is definitely about social media. You can find these LSI keywords using a free tool known as LSI Graph

Influential marketplaces like “Fame bit” will connect you to the people who will help you in promoting your stuff. Keep in mind that your customer will trust you more, if you are advertising your brands via celebrities.
