Traffic building is one of the hardest and yet most rewarding aspects of the internet marketing world. In fact, once you learn how to do it, it is quite easy, and it feels like a no-brainer.
Driving quality traffic is even more difficult. Now, how do I define quality traffic?
For me, quality traffic is traffic that, on average from a given source, buys from me. To me, that is the only traffic I care to have. The numbers are meaningless, if they are not buying from you.
So how do you use articles to drive quality to your web page?
1) Write interesting articles on topics that would be of interest to a buyer of your web product. No sense in writing about stuff that sends unqualified visitors to your web site.
2) Add a call to action to your article in your bio. Not boring stuff like your name and what you do. Something aggressive like: to get more information like this, click here: (then put a link to your site there)
3) Have your bio link go to a squeeze page. The squeeze page captures their name and email, then once they are on your list, you can send them to your main pages.
4) Submit the articles to either the big 5 article directories if you want to get direct article traffic, or submit to at least 100 article directories if you want to get search engine traffic.
