Top 10 Sources For Massive Web Site Traffic
Experienced webmasters know there are special sources or
places on the web which will send massive amounts of
traffic to your site. They also know, if harnessed
properly, these mega traffic sites will supply any web site
with a steady stream of visitors.
Perhaps the best source of web site traffic is Google.
That's not exactly a Newsflash, but the key to getting
massive amounts of traffic from Google is to go wide and
long. With this strategy, instead of targeting highly
popular keywords which may be too competitive for your site
to win, you create a whole multitude of lesser known long
tail keyword phrases to bring in the traffic.
This traffic takes longer to build but because very few
webmasters bother with these longer phrases, your keywords
will be more stable and secure. Develop a whole list of
these traffic generating keyword phrases and Google will
reward you with a whole flood of targeted visitors stemming
from these thousands of small dribbles of long tail keyword
Turning these dribbles of traffic into massive amounts is
not a difficult task, one very effective way to tap into
the entire search engine source of traffic is to tag
everything. Tags are just another name for keywords. As Web
2.0 or Social Bookmarking sites become more and more
popular, tagging will become extremely important.
You must be especially careful of how you tag the content
on your site or sites. If you're using a blogging system
like WordPress, all your categories will be considered tags
automatically. If you're creating URLs, be careful to place
your keyword phrase in your links.
Another effective way to tap into the whole keyword traffic
system is to include your keyword phrase or variations of
it in your articles while promoting your site. Place your
anchor text in your links in the resource box at the end of
Over time, as these articles become distributed all over
the web, they will create a steady stream of targeted
visitors to your site. Simple, effective and very powerful.
You are probably tired of hearing about Web 2.0 and the new
Social Bookmarking sites but they are some of the best
places for massive traffic on the web. Any webmaster who
has been Slashdotted already knows this fact all too well;
if you get a listing on the homepage of Slashdot.com you
will immediately start receiving thousands of visitors to
your site. It can be somewhat scary.
A similar experience is getting one of your articles
published in ezines run by Addme.com, SiteProNews.com,
WebProNews.com, as well as others. These ezines go out to
hundreds of thousands of readers and can produce massive
traffic back to your site.
However, much of this sudden traffic is only temporary and
most savvy webmasters know it would be wise to try and
capture the contact information of these temporary visitors
for follow-up targeting. Turn that temporary visitor into a
patron of your site by offering a free ecourse or an email
The same marketing technique should be applied to traffic
coming from all these social media sites. Don't think of
your traffic as just numbers in your website's stats, but
rather as potential customers who will return to your site
again and again.
Keep this strategy in mind as you target some of these Top
Sources of massive traffic on the web:
You should be actively promoting these social bookmarking
sites by allowing your visitors to easily bookmark your
content. You should be creating your own content on sites
like Squidoo and placing links back to your site.

traffic on the web. Press releases is another effective way
of quickly drawing in massive traffic to your site. Sites
like PRWeb can deliver targeted traffic very quickly and
Another very effective and high converting venue you should
try is Yahoo! Answers, a simple process where users post a
question and other members/experts offer answers. Used
correctly this can be a good source of targeted traffic.

Live, traffic from MSN has earned a solid reputation for
converting very well. So optimize your web pages for MSN
Live Search and you will probably see an increase in your
sales as well as your traffic.
Always keep in mind, the underlying key factor running
through all these sources of massive traffic is unique
quality content. You must create good original content on
your sites as well as in your articles and posts. Your
content must be informative, useful or entertaining. For in
the end, it is this quality content that will create the
interest, the links and the massive traffic to your site.
Don't ignore this factor or your quest for massive web site
traffic will be extremely difficult, if not impossible to
