Got that new site up and running but visitors? “If you build it they will come” is definitely not true in the online world. There are just too many sites out there and it’s very easy to be completely invisible to the outside world.

There are a number of options for the new site owner. First of all you’ll want to join several forums in your niche and begin to post relevant answers to other people’s questions. After several weeks you will begin to be looked at as an authority figure and you can place a link back to your web site in your signature and also your profile page on the forum. You may also find other webmasters that you can convince to put a link back to your site. Unfortunately, these all take time to see results and you really want to start making things happen quickly.

The absolute fastest (instant actually) way to get traffic to your site is to purchase it. We always recommend that our clients budget a percentage of their business development budget to some paid traffic to jumpstart their online business.
Buy Website Traffic

Pay per click is  the model used by Google, Yahoo and MSN.  In all three cases you pick search terms that you feel your site visitors would be using and bid what you’d be willing to pay per click.  This can become very expensive in a hurry and there are quite a few programs to help you optimize your pay per click campaigns.

A less risky method (and one we use on all our new sites) is to use one of the traffic services to purchase visitors to your site.  One of our current favorites is Easy Traffic and I recommend purchasing some geographically targetted traffic and also some that is targeted to your specific site niche (category).  This will get you an instant bump in Alexa rank and if you’re lucky you’ll gain a few backlinks.
