The Best Web Traffic-Generating Secret!

By: John Iacovakis

There are many advantages to writing articles and distributing them to online article directories. Driving more visitors to your web site is just one of the benefits.

Article directories allow you to include a resource box at the end of your article with a link back to your web site. This translates into more visitors and back links to your web site.

Most likely, these links will help your search engine ranking because major search engines count back links as a factor to rank web sites. So be sure to add the URL to your web site using anchor text with your key words.

Writing articles on a specific topic and submitting them to article directories can establish you as an expert. And online credibility counts a lot!

Hundreds of web site owners are looking for fresh online content. Your articles will help other web masters to add valuable content to their web sites. It is a win – win situation!

It is totally free. Submit your articles to article directories for free. You will only need to invest some of your time to write a nice article and a little more time to submit it to article directories.

You can submit your articles manually but it can take a lot of your time to do so, especially if you plan to submit your article to many article directories.

Another option is to use an Article Submitter. This software submits your articles to one or two hundred article directories almost automatically saving you time and efforts.

I know, writing a nice article takes time, but it can become very rewarding. Keep your articles short, about 400 - 800 words. Do not copy from other writers. Check your grammar and spelling. Write a title that makes your reader want to read more. Include a call to action like click here. Believe it or not, it can make a difference! Add a link back to your web site in your resource box.

14 Ways to Add Content to Your Web Site

When I surf the Net, I often see web sites filled with beautiful graphics that strive to capture my attention. Well, they do so for an instant, however I click away when I don't immediately find relevant content. The content you add to your web site needs to attract both visitors and search engines. Here is the 14 ways to add content to your web site and attract visitors :

1. Get into the mind of your visitor. Brainstorm all the ways your visitor would think of your product. Write your content as if you are sitting next to him/her explaining your product. Don't write in the 3rd person ie we, they, but use I, you, or your. This makes it more personal.

2. Keep it simple - write as if explaining your web site material to a 7th grader (12-13 year old). Don't use complicated words that people would have to look up in the dictionary. You want them to understand clearly what your site is about.

3. Convey emotion - people on the Web are often in a great hurry, so you need to appeal to their emotions to stop them clicking away to the next site. Use stories, convey your experiences or include testimonies from others. This adds to your credibility and trust, 2 essential factors for
doing business online.

4. Communicate quickly and efficiently - people online tend to scan rather than read everything on the page. Therefore use single lines of text for your headings and sub headings. Catch your visitor's eye with lists, bullet points and use short, snappy, active (not passive) words in your sentences. Your paragraphs should only consist of 2-5 sentences. Long paragraphs make it hard to read (scan) your page quickly.

5. Create white space - the layout of your web page should include plenty of white space. Don't lean text hard up against your graphics. Include white space between headings, sub headings and paragraphs.

6. Use graphics sparingly - you have heard it said, "a picture is worth a 1000 words." That's true but only if the picture supports your content. Don't overdo the graphics. You may impress your visitors initially, however to keep them interested in your site, you need high quality content.

7. Create high quality content - make clear points with each paragraph you write. Each paragraph should build on the previous one, so that you are pulling your visitor through your page naturally. You are trying to pre sell the product or service to your visitor. This puts them in a natural frame of mind to buy (unlike many sites which may just have pictures of the products and a shopping cart).

8. Web page background - a colorful or busy background can make your text hard to read and may give the impression of an inexperienced webmaster. If you do use a background image make sure it complements your site's theme, fits with your visitors experience and will increase your credibility.

9. Use the correct fonts - the offline world primarily uses "Times New Roman". This works well in print but not online. Sans Serif fonts, such as Arial, Verdana and Helvetica are the best fonts for easy online scanning.

10. Font colors - the best colors for reading online are black text on a white or off-white background. If you want to use multiple colors only use a maximum of 3. Too many text colors on a web page make it hard on the eyes and spell inexperience. To emphasize text you can use the bold tag (this text will appear bold) or italic tag (this text will appear in italics).

11. Check spelling and grammar - run your page through spell check in your word processor. It won't pick up all the mistakes, so make sure you read it through yourself to find other errors. Spelling and grammar mistakes convey an unprofessional impression.

12. Simple navigation - the main purpose of the navigation bar is to make it easy for your visitor to find his way around your site. Place your navigation bar on the left side or top of your page (or both). Repeat the bar at the bottom of the page so your visitor does not have to scroll
back up to move on to another section.

13. Get a critique - don't fall in love with your writing and leave it there. Yes, it's hard to listen to someone criticizing your beautiful piece of work, but swallow your pride and get your friends or family members to do a review of your web page. This will help you to refine what you have written and make it appeal to a wider audience.

14. Use specific keywords - weave targeted keywords into your web page as you write your web page content.

The Guide to Getting Website Traffic

Follow these 26 simple steps, and within just one year you will generate enough traffic to keep you busy for a long, long time!

A) Keyword Research
Before you do anything else, use a keyword research tool and do an extensive job researching the right keyphrases to use for your site. What keyphrases are your direct competitors using? Are there any keyphrases that create a potential for market entry? Are there any that you can put a spin on and create a whole new niche with?

B) Domain Name
If you want to brand your company name, then choose a domain name that reflects it. If your company is Kawunga, then get www.kawunga.com. If it's taken, then get www.kawungawidgets.com. No dashes, and no more than two words in the domain if appropriate.

C) Avoid the Sandbox
Buy your domain name early, as soon as you have chosen your keyphrases and your company name. Get it hosted right away and put up a quick one page site saying a little about who you are, what you sell, and that there will be more to come soon. Make sure it gets crawled by Google and Yahoo (either submit it or link to it from another site).

D) Create Content
Create over 30 pages of real, original content on your site. This will give the spiders something to chew on. It will also give you more opportunities to been seen in the search engine results for a wide variety of keyphrases.

E) Site Design
Use the "Keep It Simple" principle. Employ an external CSS file, clean up any Java Scripts by referring to them off the page in an external file, don't use frames, use flash the way you would an image, and no matter what, do not create a flash site. Do not offer a busy site with lots of bells and whistles to your visitors. Keep things nice and simple. Make it easy for them to find what they are looking for and they'll have no reason to look anywhere else.

F) Page Size
The less kilobytes your page uses, the better - especially for the home page. Optimize your images and make sure the page loads quickly. Most people and businesses in the Western world may have high speed, but cell phones and other countries might not. If your site loads slowly, you may have already lost your visitor before they've even had a chance to browse around.

G) Usability
Make sure that your site follows good usability rules. Remember that people spend more time on other sites, so don't violate design conventions. Don't use PDF files for online reading. Change the colours for visited links, and use good headers. Look up usability for more tips and tricks, it will be worth your while.

H) On Site Optimization
Use the keyphrase you have chosen in your title (most important), your headers (when appropriate), and within the text. Make sure that your page/content is ABOUT your keyphrase. If you are selling widgets, than write about widgets. Don't just stick the word widgets into the text.

I) Globals
Globals are the links that remain the same on every page. They are the reference for new visitors to keep them from getting lost. Sometimes they are on the left of the page, sometimes they consist of tabs at the top. Often they are in the footer of the page as well. Make sure that you have an old style text version of your globals on every page. I usually create tabs at the top, and put the text versions in the footer at the bottom of the page. Find out what works best for you.

J) Headers
Use bold headers. On the Internet, people scan they don't read. So initially, all they will see are the headers. If your headers don't address their concerns, they won't stick around long enough to read your content. Use appropriate keyphrases when you can.

K) Site Map
Build a site map with a link to each of your pages. Keep it up to date. This will allow the spiders to get to every page. Put a text link to the site map on the main pages.

L) Content
Add a page every 2-3 days: 200-500 words. Create original content, don't copy others. The more original and useful it is, the more people will read it, link to it, and most importantly of all - like it enough to keep coming back for more.

M) White Hat Only
Stay away from black hat optimizing techniques. Black hat optimization consists of using any method to get higher rankings that the search engines would disapprove of, such as keyword stuffing, doorway pages, invisible text, cloaking and more. Stick to white hat methods for long-term success. People who use black hat optimization are usually there for the short-term, such as in porn, gambling, and Viagra markets (just look at your email spam for more black hat markets). These black hat industry sites are usually around just long enough to make a quick buck.

N) Submit
Submit to five groups of directories:

1. Google, Dmoz.org and Yahoo
2. Find directories in your field and get into them. Pay if you must, but only if the price is reasonable.
3. Local directories that relate to your country or region.
4. Any other directories that would be appropriate.
5. If you are targeting the local market, make sure that you are in the Yellow Pages and Superpages (because search engines use these listings to power local searches)

O) Blog
Start a blog about your industry and write a new entry at least once a week. Allow your visitors to comment or, better yet, write their own entries. This will create even more content on your site and will keep people coming back regularly to see what is new.

What makes a great web design?

When I was a young and inexperienced web designer, I was once asked what made a great web design. I blithely responded with something like "lots of cool graphics and moving objects!" I cringe when I remember this particularly dreadful moment in my life. My real concern, however, is with aspiring web designers today. I am an avid participant in online discussion forums and hear and deal with this issue plenty.

Web design is a true art. Web site success stories are hatched after strong considerations over content placement, graphics and template design are thoroughly scrutinized. This process may (in fact, it should) take time to complete; days, weeks and perhaps even months depending on the complexity of the site.

The question of what it takes to create a great web site must be taken into context. Search engines, for example, most likely wish to create a faster loading site, perhaps compromising the amount of graphics. Media companies, however, most definitely place higher credence on the design, including graphics and other visual enhancements.

Therefore, the question here is largely subjective to the type of site it is applied to, and I will keep these considerations very general and appliable to all types of sites.

The greatness of web design
A true analysis of great web design should not only consist of graphics and objects. In fact, it may be the least important issue in this argument. Web design is great when it works for the site's purpose, addresses customer needs well and furnishes a positive visage for the product, service or person the site is serving.

Content placement plays a role into what qualifies as great design. It is no surprise that content is placed in a prominent location on the page, and this particular element is not the problem. Font sizes should be kept large enough to be easily read by the Internet population (size 2 is nice, but size 1 can be used with proper line spacing). The text should contrast well with the background of the page. Web designers have more freedom over font color when placed upon a white background.

A very important element in web design is often overlooked when designing a site, and that is content organization. Create major section titles and provide all relavent content and links within those titles. Implement a clear barrier between the major sections on the site, and also consider placing each title on a separate page.

Tables are the essence of many designs, and that is more than understandable. Web designers should strive to keep nested tables to an absolute minimum. Further, consider slicing your tables up, vertically. One long table will require more load time than multiple tables will aligned vertically.

Now we arrive at images, perhaps the most controversial part of web design. Read carefully, because this is important: graphics do not make a web design. In fact, the overuse of graphics detracts from what the web site was built to provide. Graphics are enhancements, not elemental objects of a web site. Use them to enhance and not to built. A rule of thumb is to aim for a 10 second maximum load time of any page.

Straying from the how for a moment, let us examine the what. A good web design includes originality. Originality requires thought, consideration and creativity, which is what makes web design a fun endeavor for a lot of us. Giving your visitors a unique perspective on a web design is refreshing in this world of predictability.

Want a one-to-one relationship with your visitors? You may have noticed sophisticated, database backed web site designs equipped to serve each visitor independently. By supplying the site with your preferences, you can alter the design, including the content and sometimes the color, with a simple click of the mouse. This type of sophistication is certainly not mandatory, but it does offer food for thought.

Do not forget coding standards
A great web design is not just visual. It should include standard, effecient coding practices. For example, the HTML BODY tag's deprecated attributes "marginwidth, marginheight, leftmargin and rightmargin" are often written within code to explicitly set the margins, in pixels, of the web site.

Instead, CSS can be used to accomplish the same task, and the code is interpreted like it should in all standards-compliant browsers. Setting the margin of a web site to 0 using CSS might look something like this:

margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px;

This is a shortcut method of writing something like this, more intuitive, implementation:

margin-top: 0px;
margin-right: 0px;
margin-bottom: 0px;
margin-left: 0px;

Or in PHP, instead of referencing a variable from the URL with it's name, preceded by a dollar sign (ie: $Var), reference that variable via PHP's superglobal array $_GET[Var] or $HTTP_GET_VARS[Var].

The Screen Resolution War

One of the first and most critical decisions web and user interface (UI) designers must face when designing for a fixed screen resolution is whether to design for the classic, narrow screen resolution of 800×600 pixels or the newer, now-more-commonplace resolution of 1024×768 pixels (and above).

The decision is not as simple, nor as trivial as it sounds.

Design too wide (1024×768 pixels and above) and you risk shutting out a portion of your demographic as valuable content and ad space sit out of view to the right of their browser window. Plus, your users will typically see the dreaded horizontal scrollbar!

Design too narrow (800×600 pixels) and you risk wasting valuable screen real estate in the afore-mentioned right-hand side with many users seeing nothing but your lovely page background filling 25% of their brand new 19″ (or larger) monitors.

The web is at a crossroads right now. There are still those waiting to make the leap from 800×600 screen resolution to 1024×768 (and above). But with the advent of larger monitors and better graphic cards, that number is dwindling every day. As recent as last year, the majority of users - 80% or more - were running 800×600 screen resolutions. That statistic has largely flipped and now many large scale sites are eschewing the 800×600 spec and designing for the future (i.e. 1024×768):

* www.cnn.com
* www.espn.com
* www.nytimes.com

There are lies, damn lies - and statistics. - Mark Twain

Statistics often fail to prove much, if anything. That said, I’ve worked for almost a decade within the WWW community. My company’s clients span virtually every industry, catering to a broad range of demographics. In looking at our site statistics at hand, roughly 15-25% of our clients users are running 800×600, with the remainder of folks experiencing the web in the larger, 1024×768 (and up) format. Twenty-five percent - a minority, but a sizable minority at that - is certainly nothing to sneeze at. But that number will likely half in the next 6-9 months and continue to decline sharply thereafter.

Of course now you’re asking, “How do I know what resolution my users are running?” Fortunately, that information is often right at your finger tips in the form of your own web server logs. Your website administrator or webmaster can you help with this. If you do not have a webmaster per se, or are your own webmaster, ask your website host how to get access to your web logs. One other option is to use an all-purpose tracking script. I love StatCounter.com’s offering - the administrative panel provides a wealth of invaluable information that no website owner can do without. Best of all, it’s free!

The bottom line is that this decision, as with many design and UI decisions, is largely dependent on your demographic. An older, less computer savvy audience will likely experience the web via the classic 800×600 screen resolution. A younger and/or more affluent demographic will likely prove just the opposite - with newer computers and larger monitors, these folks are almost certainly viewing the web via higher screen resolutions.

Keeping Your Website Simple is most effective

What do the Internet’s most profitable websites such as Dell, Amazon and Yahoo all have in common? They are plain, simple, and easy to use. The most effective web sites do not employ fancy graphics or animations to sell their products and services because these distractions take away from the goal of a website – selling! Your goal is to sell your products, services, and yourself – not impress people with your technical prowess. It just does not make sense to pay a website development company thousands of dollars to design a fancy website that will not be as effective as its cheaper, simpler counter-part.

Most web designers make the mistake of using extravagant, but slow-loading graphics and Flash animations. These elements may make a website visually impressive, but neglects a large percentage of Internet users who have dial-up connections. Potential clients and customers are not going to wait 30 seconds to a minute for your home page to load up; they’ll soon be using their browser’s “Back” to get back to Google’s search results and do business with a competitor who has a more user friendly website.

Understand Your Target Audience
Younger generations may be more adept to using Internet Technology, but it can be a difficult concept for older generations to grasp. So, it is important not to make your website more complicated than necessary. As said by the late Albert Einstein, “Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.” Designing a simple website involves a clean page layout using minimal, but attractive graphics to ensure fast loading, non-cluttered pages. Designing a site’s navigation structure that is notably visible and allows easy access to all of a website’s content ensures that a potential customer or client can easily find the information they are searching for. A good web designer will also ensure that a client’s website is cross-browser compatible, so that the site will look consistent to Internet users with different versions of Internet browsers. It is also essential to take screen resolutions in to consideration. The website should appear correctly for all users, whether they are using 600 x 800, 1024 x 768, or any other screen resolution. Therefore, web designers must take into consideration that some Internet users still use a 15” monitor and 800 x 600 screen resolution.

Content is King
So far we’ve established that when it comes to professional business website design, simpler is better. So, how do you enhance the experience for visitors to your website if you can’t impress them with your technical ability? The best way is to incorporate interesting and useful content into your website. Use detailed product and service information on your website – the more the better. After all, these people visited your website to read more about your products and services, so why not give them more of what they want? It is also a good idea to write or post articles of interest related to your products or services. Use these articles to your advantage by conveying to your clients or customers that you are indeed an expert in your field. Oh, and one last thing – make it easy for them to find this information and don’t confuse or distract them.

Choosing An Effective Website Colour Combination

An aesthetically pleasing colour scheme can make or break your website. After all, in advertising, colour accounts for 60% of advertisement's acceptance or rejection. Therefore, colour plays a pivotal role in determining whether or not a potential customer will choose to conduct business with your firm. A web designer needs to ensure that all of your website’s colours work in harmony, while keeping the client’s identity consistent with other marketing efforts.

Quick Rules of Thumb
  1. Stick to 3 to 5 colours when planning a website
  2. When in doubt, use white for the background colour, and black for the text colour

Using Your Company’s Logo Colours
If your company already has a logo designed by a professional – great! This is the best starting point for choosing your website’s colour combination. You may choose to use the exact colours found in your logo, or even add some complimentary colours. But, it is important not to stray too far from your logo’s colour scheme in order to keep your company’s identity consistent.

Colour Defines Mood
The colours of your website are important because they can elicit different emotions from your visitors. Colours can make us happy, excited, angry or sad. Below is a list of colours along with the corresponding moods which they evoke:

Warm Colors
Red: aggressiveness, passion, strength, vitality Pink: femininity, innocence, softness, health Orange: fun, cheeriness, warm exuberance Yellow: positive thinking, sunshine, cowardice

Cool Colors
Green: tranquility, health, freshness Blue: authority, dignity, security, faithfulness
Purple: sophistication, spirituality, costliness, royalty, mystery

Neutral Colors
Brown: utility, earthiness, woodiness, subtle richness White: purity, truthfulness, being contemporary and refined Gray: somberness, authority, practicality, corporate mentality Black: seriousness, distinctiveness, boldness, being classic

Choosing a Color Scheme
Once you understand the colours and their connotations, the next step is to choose a colour scheme for your website. Below is list of different types of colour combinations:

Monochromatic colour combinations use a single color. Variations in lightness of the selected colour can be used to create the sense of different colours. Monochromatic colors go well together, producing a soothing effect, and are very easy on the eyes. The drawback however, is that, it can be difficult to highlight the most important elements on your website.

Analogous color schemes use colours that are related, but not the identical, to create visually attractive combinations. Choosing this type of colour scheme is accomplished by picking colours that are close to each other on the colour wheel. For example, a selection of blues and purples, or reds and oranges would make a good analogous combination. One colour must be picked as the dominant colour while the others are used as accents.

Complementary (or contrasting) color schemes are comprised of 2 colours that are opposite each other on the color wheel. This combination is most appealing when a warm and a cool colour are used. For example, red with green or blue work well as contrasting colours. Using one colour for your background, and its complementary color to highlight key elements will give you colour dominance and colour contrast. One word of caution: it is difficult for the human eye to focus on contrasting colours at the same time. Therefore, it is best to avoid using strong contrasts for background and text colours.

Website Domain Names

There are over 40,000,000 domain names already registered, so you may be finding it very difficult to come up with a good domain name that you are happy with. Here's some practical advice on finding the right domain name...

Keep It Short
No matter what you choose make sure it is short and easily recognizable. This is the name people will find you and come to know you by. Preferably you want a one word name or a description name that will stick in peoples memory. Think of all the great sites you know. Google.com Yahoo.com Amazon.com MSN.com. Short, catchy names which are easy to remember. Try to keep it below eight characters, if possible.

A Good Domain Name
Is easy to convey and easy to remember! The most basic (yet often overlooked) web traffic building campaign should include promoting your web address through every means you already have in place for reaching your prospects and customers, so it should be easily conveyed in any format, printed or otherwise (on your stationery, in your catalog, on your product packaging, in your voice mail messages, in your signature file at the end of your email messages, etc.).

Your website domain should be easy to remember for others to spread the word about. It should not be easily misspelled or confusing - Prospective visitors won't always have your web address spelled out in front of them. They may try to visit your site from memory. If they misspell or otherwise confuse your domain name, they won't be able to access your site. They might even end up accessing a competing domain!
Simplicity is very important. Otherwise you'll lose traffic.

Avoid Trademarked Names
The reason for this is clear. The companies who own the trademark will simply call their lawyers.

How to Choose a Good Web Host Provider

What to look for when choosing a web host?

Type of Website
What type of website do you have?
This is the most basic question and will determine which general direction you should go when choosing a webhost. Is it a personal site or a business site? Do you just want to put a couple fun pages online for friends and family, or are you hoping to make a business out of it?

Paid hosting will usually cost between $5 and $75 per month. Dedicated servers will usually cost you over $150 per month. A small personal site can be hosted with $5 monthly web host, but a business website (especially if you expect many visitors) will need a dedicated server.

Reliability, Speed and Uptime Guarantee
Nothing can hurt you more than this: your visitors come to your web site only to find that it’s not accessible. You lose credibility and possibly even sales. If your web host does not guarantee at least a 99% uptime, leave the web host!

To ensure maximum uptime, installation of redundant back-up systems is essential. Each web host has their own management systems to minimize downtime. "Redundant" means that if any of the Internet connections get interrupted, the alternate Internet connection will take over.

Rock Solid Infrastructure
Confirm that they offer a multihomed network powered by multiple bandwidth providers to ensure redundancy. Also, investigate your host's Service Level Agreement to make sure it has "teeth" so your host will do what they promise.

Customer Support
One of the most frequent, and justified, complaints that many people have with their web host is lack of customer and technical support.
No matter if you are an expert or a novice in web hosting, you need a web host with good customer support system.

Many web hosts offer both email and phone support while others are available only via email. In most cases, email support is adequate, but you should be cautious if a potential web host has no phone number available in case of an emergency.

Response times to support questions vary widely. Some webhosts may take only a few minutes to get back to you while others take days or longer. It is important to find out what type of support any potential web host offers.
Ask around. References are always a good way to judge a host's performance.

Data Transfer (Traffic/Bandwidth)
Data transfer - also refered to as "traffic" or "bandwidth" is the amount of bytes transferred from your site to visitors when they browse your site.

Don't believe any commercial web host that advertises "unlimited bandwidth". The host has to pay for the bandwidth, and if you consume a lot of it, they will not silently bear your costs. Many high bandwidth websites have found this out the hard way when they suddenly receive an exhorbitant bill for having "exceeded" the "unlimited bandwidth". Always look for details on how much traffic the package allows. As your site becomes more popular, you will need to also check their policy for overages: is there a published charge per GB over the allowed bandwidth?
Is the charge made according to actual usage or are you expected to pre-pay for a potential overage?

It is better not to choose hosts that expect you to prepay for overages, because it is very hard to predict when your site will exceed its bandwidth and by how much.

Buy What You Need, Upgrade Later
Despite the temptation to have many special features, it is far wiser to select a web host that reflects your immediate business needs. There is no point in signing up for an all-inclusive account with a hosting company if you won't be using most of their services.

However, make sure that your hosting is scalable and you will be able to easily upgrade as your site grows in complexity.

Control Panel
Control panels allow you to manage different aspects of your web account yourself. Typically, and at the very minimum, it should allow you to do things like add, delete, and manage your email addresses, and change passwords for your account.
Such chores are common maintenance chores that every webmaster performs time and time again, and it would be a great hassle if you had to wait for their technical support to make the changes for you.

Web Host Price
While price is always a main factor, you should realise that you often get what you pay for, although it's not necessarily true that the most expensive hosts are the best.

In the end, choosing the right web host really depends on your individual needs.
What may constitute the perfect web host for one person may not meet the needs of another. It is up to you to decide, through a combination of logic, research skills, and a bit of luck ...
