What one tip would you give to bring traffic to a website?

by admin | 31st March 2010

I am not sure if I could post a link to my website here without violating the TOS, but we are a recruiting agency and are now offering new services such as career coaching and resume writing. So any specific SEO advice would be appreciated. If someone knows if I can post the link here, that would be great, too.
to vicseo, the website is www. hcrgroup. net , thanks!

    You can add metadata to your Sitemap (with a capital S). You can specify keywords in the metatags that should bring your website up when users do a search engine search.

    Rather than merely discussing SEO generalities, can you provide us with your website’s URL so we can review your SEO metatags and offer specific improvements thereto?

    After a cursory review of your SEO metatags on your opening webpage, we have found:

    1. The merely contains the domain name and the word “home. ” If your domain name is a major “branded” trademark, then you can expect many Net surfers to easily find your website by merely submitting a domain name search query. On the other hand, why not consider use of “generic” keywords which best describe your services followed by a business locator, i. e. , city, state, country. Here’s an improved metatag: Full Service Technology Temp Staffing Searching Job Services | New York City, USA. Begin with the New York business designator and as you increase business in other locales, add those new cities as you go along. Remember that you are dealing with potential clients who basically come from a Yellow Pages mentality. They first select the business directory for their particular residence, i. e. , New York, and then look up “Employment Agency, etc. ” And why would anyone want to change that mindset. So, it’s best to continue to promote the Yellow Page mentality even when selecting “keywords” which are found in the , and metatags!

    This provides the broadest use of “generic” keywords which will draw the greatest number of job candidates/applicants whenever they submit these “generic” keywords to major search engines.

    2. There is missing a major metatag, the metatag which when properly indexed will show on search results exactly what your Group has to offer.

    Here’s an example of a competent metatag:

    Hopefully you will consider the above suggestions and will incorporate these recommendations in a timely manner on your opening webpage.

    Good luck!

    P. S. Your website is well designed!

    To get traffic to your website, you need only one thing: links towards your website!
    To keep them on your website, or have your visitors create more links towards your pages, you need quality content, served in a good way (good interface).
    To rank high in the search engines, you need your metadata, your site-structure, your content etcetera.

    Well I wouldn’t think that just one tip is enough.

    You’ve got to serious about SEO or don’t waste your time on it at all. So far I know only one resourse on the web that gives you real PRACTICAL guidance and lets you get started without any basic SEO knowledge at all.

    Check SEO in Practice at http://www. seoinpractice. com (by the way the author Dan Richmond really replies when you’re trying to get in touch!!!)

    My personall suggestion is anyway, that you start with keyword research and then do some on-page optimization (i. e. content optimization). Good luck to you!

    If you google the keyword “make money online for beginners”, you will find an ugly blog at #1 always. Its secret – backlinks. For free backlinks, you can try a free service where you have to submit articles. Each article will earn you 60 one-way links. These are delivered in a controlled manner so it will look natural to search engines.

    Also, try to learn some basic SEO tricks. for your META tags, alt tags and textual content.

    Hi Mate,

    You can get heaps of free traffic from social networking sites, such as facebook and myspace. This is better known as web 2. 0 marketing. You can actually get a Free 5 part course on how to do this from http://www. web20websitetrafficsystem. com. . . I got a copy of the free 5 part course myself and learnt how to get heaps of free traffic. Before this I was using Google Adwords, which was very expensive.

    I hope this helps.

    Kind Regards,

    Mathew Ryan

    The most important thing you can do is focus on relevancy and make certain you are targeting the right keywords. Do a quick 5-10 minute keyword analysis using Google Keyword Tool
    https://adwords. google. com/select/KeywordToolExternal

    You should use a different set of keywords for each optimized page. I suggest targeting 2-5 keywords per page. Use the keywords in page titles, meta tags, content, alternate image text, anchor text, link building campaigns, etc.

    You also should build some authority links. Choose your link placement resources by the relevancy and quantity of human traffic that link will bring your website. You can build links by writing an article for an industry leader and include a link which point back to your website, submit link to niche directories, request a link exchange, etc. To learn more about link building visit
    http://www. antonaf. com/articles/key-to-successful-link-building/

    You should also join some social networks, such as Digg, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, etc. and join groups, make friends, add articles, participate, and contribute to the community. You don’t need to get crazy and spend hours a day at it, but spend an hour or two each day or each other day. In addition you should join a few niche forum groups and participate in forum discussions.

    Use a web tracking software to monitor your website performance. I suggest and prefer server-side software, otherwise use a browser-based software such as Google Analytics free.

    Good luck!
