Default Increase Online Traffic - What NOT To Do

Anita DeFrank has some suggestions on what not to do to increase traffic.

"Since everyone is so obsessed with ways to increase our website traffic (and of course we should be) people often are quick to jump at anything that might help. We are always talking about ways to increase search engine traffic. But, what about what we shouldn't do?"

Great tips! Stick to things like social media, forums, blogging and you will get all the traffic (and sales) you need eventually.There are no short cuts to internet wealth.

Great ideas. I think its a great way to get some things done, for sure. Why not article market? Why not blog or comment or forum post? Its free!

Traffic is important, but so is the content once they get there. Check how long they stay, the bounce rate and overall stickiness of your content. One of my sites gets a great deal of traffic, but very little income. Once I started looking at it, I improved my content and gradually it makes more money now.

that was a really great and helpful article. Although spreading your links on top sites can also be helpful. Also content plays a big part just remember not to put too much links or spam your own content or everything will turn out to be waste

Spreading the word is the best way to go. Advertise anywhere and everywhere in order to draw traffic. Eventually, it will pick up with time.
Thanks for the great share

Ahhh... you just ruined this for me. I always thought that there was a fast way to make it online. Now what am I going to do!?!? )

Good information. Actually, I forgot most of those. Link farms?? Web rings?? Nice! Thanks for the reminder!
