Getting Visitors to your website

It’s one thing to want to make money from your Web site, but if you don’t get the page views, you won’t make the money.

This article is not going to give you any long lost secrets that will bring your site to the top of every search engine, but it will help you get more hits.

1. Submit your site to search engines
This may seem obvious, but a lot of people don’t do that, hoping that the spiders will somehow magically find their site. While this may happen, why leave it up to chance? There are some great programs out there that will help you do your submissions quickly and for free. Some of my favorites are listed on my Promoting Your Web Page net links section.

2. Use meta tags
and use them well. Well formed meta tags will get your site higher in the search engines that use them than many sites without meta tags or sites with poorly written meta tags. My article on meta tags explains a lot about meta tags and how they work.

3. Request reciprocal links
If you have a page of links that are to external sites, why not write to them and ask if they will link back to you? For one thing, this brings them awareness of your site, and you might get a link. I don’t recommend demanding links (along the lines of “I’ll link to you, but only if you link to me”) as this can seem rude. When you write to a site to tell them you’ve linked to them you are telling them that you find their site valuable, and a compliment is much more likely to win you a return link.

4. Use formal link exchanges
There are Internet companies where all they do is set up links and banners for various sites to use and promote one another. Some of the best known ones are Link Exchange and Banner Exchange.

5. Advertise your site
Where ever you are, and whatever you do, you should talk up your site. Your email should have your site URL, and possibly a small blurb about what people can find there. If you are willing to spend the money, you can get business cards, shirts, toys, novelties, and more to give away with your site URL on them. Keep in mind, I am not advocating sending unsolicited email or annoying your friends with commentary about your site, but if you write a site about dogs and don’t tell your Doberman loving friend about the fawn dobie photos you just put up on your site, you are missing out on a marketing opportunity.

6. Keep them coming back
If you have a site that changes on a regular basis, and the content is compelling and useful, your readers will come back. And in the time between when they left and returned, they may (and most likely will after two or three visits) tell someone else about your site. (“And she told two friends and they told two friends and so on and so on…”). Also, every time they come back is another page view for you, another advertisement served, or another chance for you to sell your product. In my article If You Build It… …Will They Come?, I discuss a number of suggestions for making your site compelling to keep people coming back.

Now that Sweeva has passed the 20,000 member mark I thought now would be a good time to share some of my best tips and tricks to help people maximize their Sweeva experience.

Not a member of Sweeva? Join here.

Top 12 Sweeva Tips and Tricks

1. Read the FAQ – Sweeva is a unique program combining the elements of social networking and free traffic exchange programs. The more you understand how the system works the easier it will be for you to take advantage of all the features it has to offer.

2. Update Your Profile – Sweeva is a social site. That means that other members are going to be just as interested in who you are as they are about what you are promoting. Keep your profile updated and don’t forget to upload your photo to Gravatar.

3. Organize Your Websites – Every page you submit to Sweeva will be visible on your profile. Even if you don’t plan to spend any credits promoting a page it’s a good idea to have a list of your sites that can be viewed by other members. Tip: Add your sites with the Sweeva toolbar to earn toolbar loyalty points.

4. Add Quality Feedback – Sweeva gives you the ability to receive instant feedback on any pages that you are promoting. By leaving quality comments on other people’s sites you are not only earning experience points for yourself but you are also helping to get yourself recognized as a valuable member of the Sweeva community.

5. Add Profile Comments – Check out some of the profiles of other members and post a personal message on their page. Ask them about their sites or just introduce yourself. Obviously don’t spam them with your offers but take advantage of this opportunity to network with other members.

6. Support Your Downline – If you refer a new member to Sweeva post a message on their profile to welcome them. Let them know that you are available to help them if they need it. Remember, the more active your Sweeva referrals are the greater your rewards.

7. Strike While the Iron is Hot – Regardless of how many credits you bid your site will only be seen by however many people are surfing at the time it is shown. The number of people surfing varies throughout the day but you can get a good idea of when Sweeva is most active by looking at the daily stats. You can also see how many people are currently online by looking at the “Previous Site” numbers at the bottom of the members area. Wait until there is a good sized crowd of people surfing before you show your site to maximize your page’s exposure. Tip: Activity tends to go way up right after the owners send out an email update.

8. Conserve Your Credits – If you plan on surfing Sweeva for awhile try adjusting your bids to see how low you can go. It usually takes about 10 minutes to find out if your bid has been accepted. Don’t overbid unless you really want to get your site seen now.

9. Engage Your Guests – My favorite way to use Sweeva is to be present when my site is being shown. This lets me personally welcome people to my page and let them know that I am there if they have any questions. Be social. Thank people if they say something nice. Give out stars. Have fun with it and reap the rewards.

10. Clean Your Comments – This might seem controversial but I delete unwanted comments from my pages before they are shown. Negative comments are fine because it gives me a chance to interact with people but I would rather people only see the quality comments on my page. A page full of people posting “ok” and “good” does nothing to benefit you. It’s no different than tidying up your home before you invite over company. Delete the junk from your comments to make sure the important comments can be seen.

11. Upgrade Your Membership – If you can afford it the upgraded Sweeva membership is one of the best deals around. Not only will you earn greater commissions from your downline but you will also earn credits and XP faster than free members.

12. Be Creative – Sweeva is your social networking community. You can make it into whatever you want it to be. Think of new ways to interact with other members. Try out a new splash page. Record a video. Have a contest. Be social. It’s your Sweeva. Have fun with it!
