How to Kick Start your Website Traffic

By Anil Khatri
Posted Friday, October 15, 2004

Traffic is the oxygen of any website. The internet would cease to exist without any traffic. Your website may have the best content, but without traffic it is as good as dead. No purpose is solved in having a website which does not have traffic.

There are many ways and means to get traffic to your website. They range from search engines to classified ads to reciprocal linking to opt-in emails to ezines and so on. Some ways are better than others. Different methods work for different websites.

The world of traffic has been seeing a different trend in the recent times, and that is of guaranteed hits systems. Though a few such systems were around much earlier, it is in the recent times that the fashion has caught on and several such networks have sprung up.

What are these guaranteed hits systems and what can they do for you? The underlying principle in these systems is similar to a banner exchange, though in a banner exchange you exchange banner impressions, here you exchange complete pageviews of your website.

Basically there are three types of such systems:

(1) PopUnder/PopOver/Exit/Entry:
The most popular exchange systems in this category are popunder and exit.

This is how it works. Upon signing up, you are given a special code which you need to install into one or more pages of your website.

For a popunder system, when a visitor enters your website, a window opens in the background (popunder window) which displays some other member's url.

For a exit system, a window opens when your visitor leaves your website (exit window) and this window displays some other member's url.

What happens here is you have 'shown' someone else's url and later someone else will 'show' your url.

To use this type of system, you must have your own webpage or a website as the code has to be installed.

(2) Startpage:
This is easy to use and there is no code to install in your website, though upon signing up, you will need to set a special startpage url as your browser homepage.

Once this is done, whenever you open your browser, you will be redirected to some member's url. Other members will view your url similarly.

To use this type of system, you need not have your own webpage or a website as there is no code to be installed.

(3) Surf for Hits:
This is the easiest to use and there is no code or url to install/set anywhere.

Upon signing up, all you need to do is start visiting other members' websites through the system itself. Other members will visit your website similarly.

Usually the minimum required time period of a visit is 20 seconds though some networks require as less as 10 seconds and some require over 30 seconds. My personal opinion is, anything between 20 - 30 seconds is good and reasonable.

To use this type of system, you need not have your own webpage or a website as there is no code to be installed.

You must keep these things in mind before and while using these kinds of systems. As soon as a visitor arrives at your website, you just have a few seconds in which to present your product/service to that visitor. Your website must have a proper content and layout to get the visitor interested in seeing more of it.

Also, do remember to make your webpage fast loading. One way to achieve this is to cut down on unnecessary graphics/banners. Use text links instead.

The proper use of such systems can bring instant traffic to your website and thus help in kick starting it.
