All sites are nice and profitable in their own way, however without a good target audience they are nothing. So for example if you’re running a marketing blog it would obviously be a waste of time getting traffic from unrelated niches, so don’t waste your time getting crap traffic to your site as it will only hurt your serps. (search engine ranking positions)
To start off I recommend using what I like to call the B.A.S.E tactics…
B- Blog posting
Find a good relevant list of blogs online that are in relation to your niche…
Here are some recommended search terms for a Marketing Blog:
> SEO Marketing Blogs
> Webmaster Blogs
> Marketing Blogs
> Promotion Blogs
Now take those key phrases and every 2-3 days do a search on each one in the bigger search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN, etc.. and post your comments about the blogs. (about the blog NOT your site; don’t spam!) While doing so enter your anchor text (example: Marketing Blog) In the comment name field then enter your sites url & comment. I recommend changing up the keywords you use. Most all blogs will accept your comment if not automatically accepted as long as you stay on topic with the blog in your actual comment. Doing this every couple days will benefit your site very well.
A- Article & Directory Submission
Create a couple unique articles packed with good content relevant to your niche. If you’re not a writer you can outsource this to freelancers for a decent rate via means of freelance sites, forums, websites, etc.. now when the article is complete you will want to have a link to your site in it, I personally choose the keyword/key phrase (anchor text) I’m targeting for seo. From here choose a couple good article directories that have targeted traffic for your particular niche and submit your articles to them. (in NICHE categories!).
S- Social Bookmarking & Social Networks
Promoting your website via means of Social Networks and Social bookmarking sites are a great source of targeted traffic to promote your website and in most cases they are free unless of course you decide to purchase paid promotion packages. Either way (manual or automatic) they work and I recommend submitting your website to social bookmarking sites and spreading the word of your sites on social networks.
E- Exchanging Links
Do a search on all the main search engines for websites similar to yours and send them a link exchange request email. I personally send an email request to all the top 10-30 website results per keyword I use. This usually gets me a few good sites to exchange links with.
In short… I personally recommend keeping these pointers in mind when trying to achieve your goal. I hope this helps you in your online ventures as a profitable webmaster.
