All Website Traffic Is Not Equal
If you have spent any time at all trying to get traffic to your website, you know it can be a very frustrating journey. I’ve spent an enormous amount of money and time developing ways to bring a steady flow of traffic to my website. Of all the things that I’ve learned from my research one thing stands out the most - all sources of traffic are not equal. I've literally spent tens of thousands of dollars and put countless hours into building traffic systems that will put targeted visitors on my websites. I have tried everything from free tools, to very expensive pay-per-click advertising- and every conceivable method in-between. I found that the results are not always directly related to the amount of money you can afford to spend.
Throughout my research, I have tried many different traffic generation methods that I believed were very effective traffic building strategies. The problem with many of these systems is that they would work great for a while, and then out of nowhere would stop producing results. Of course, as my traffic fluctuated, so did my income. Another problem I encountered was the quality of traffic. When I first started building a traffic funnel to my website, I was ignorant, and was only looking for quantity of traffic.
I thought, the more the people; the better result. While at some level that is correct (and I do continually work on building massive traffic volume), there is a problem in thinking only of volume. If you are simply focused on bringing masses of people to your site without any concern for the quality of your visitor, you are probably wasting a lot of time and money. In my early years of building traffic solutions for my sites, I tried some of those "special deals" where they promise thousands of visitors to your site. At the time, I really wasn't thinking about my target market, because I was just focused on getting massive numbers of people. In my ignorance, I was excited to pay their fee in order to get "thousands" of visitors a week. I quickly learned that traffic from those sources, is garbage. In fact, the traffic I purchased was probably not real people at all. I'm pretty sure it was simply a script that gave the illusion of visitors in my log files. Either way, I wasted plenty of money and time.
I see it much like the food at a $3.99 buffet in Orlando, Florida. You get the appearance of plenty, but the quality is disgusting (and you'll probably end up sick later on). So, from my experiences I’ve learned that quality of traffic is as important as quantity. I've also learned that the quality and quantity of prospects to your site is directly related to the traffic strategy you use. If you use good traffic generation techniques, you’re likely to get good quality targeted prospects. I've developed some simple rules that I follow and generate thousands of visitors to my sites. I won't list them here, but I do share them on my traffic blogsite at: http://www.networkmarketingtraffic.com.
