|Tip 7: Start Submitting
your Website To Niche Directories!
In the last tip, you read about big name directories and how your
website traffic could greatly benefit from them. Well, now I want you
to find niche directories and submit your website to them. Niche
directories are just like the bigger directories, except for the fact
that they generally focus on one topic rather than all of them.
Don't get it? Okay, here is a simple explanation. If your website is
about weight loss and weight related problems, you would need to find a
directory relating to that topic and submit your website to it. Get it?
Go to Google.com and enter in "YOUR TOPIC +directories". You should get
plenty of helpful results and some good directories that you can submit
too. Pick a few and then start submitting. The more, the better!
Niche Directories are great because they are highly targeted, which is
exactly what you want. The more targeted a niche is, the better your
odds are for reeling in targeted visitors whom are actually
interested in your website. Niche directories may not have the same
amount of power as some of the bigger directories, but they still pack
a nice punch when used effectively.
Tip 8: Gives Your Images Keyword Rich
Not many people know that they can bring in traffic just from their
website images. Yes, that's correct, you didn't misread anything. If an
image is named with the proper keywords, it can bring in a steady
stream of site traffic. However, if you want to capitalize on that type
of website traffic, then you have to know what words to use.
If you have a simple system for your website images, like btpic21 (boat
picture 21), thats great. You are probably very organized and have
little problem finding things in a hurry. But, if you want to get
traffic from your website pictures, you are going to have to be more
specific with the file name. Google doesn't know what btpic21 is, so
they won't be listing it under "boat pictures". The image btpic21 would
only be found if someone entered in those exact characters, which is
very unlikely. Therefore, try to utilize keywords that relate to your
topic and your pictures should be easily found by Google.
What's the significance of image traffic? Is the traffic any good?
Well, it's hard to say. It really depends on your topic and what your
website focuses on. Either way, it's free website traffic with no work,
so you can't go wrong.
