    Hello Everyone,

    What are the methods of gaining heavy traffic to ones website? Like I have 2 websites of different products of the same category .... still one website has more traffic where the other has less. why is that?

    If you have two websites which carry the same category of products, why not merge them?

    It's a whole lot easier to advertise and promote one name than two, so that's how I would solve it. Not much point in trying to figure out why one website gets more traffic than the other though it's probably that the same category, for example computers, could have say desktops and laptops and the site with laptops will get more traffic as more people are interested in that product even though it's the same category.

    If you just want to gain traffic, you got to advertise. Get a billboard, a bus bench, toss some fliers up, guerilla market it, etc. There's no magic formula to getting traffic to ones site.

    Tim I'd suggest that you do some analysis of your site stats to try to look into that a little more. You might look for answers to questions such as;

    1. How do the bounce rates of the sites compare?
    2. Is one site getting more traffic because more people find the site, or because the people who find it are more likely to stay on it and revisit it?
    3. What search terms are bringing visitors to each site?
    4. Which search terms are more helpful in bringing visitors, that will stay and perhaps buy from the site?

    Having two sites puts you in the lucky position of being able to compare them and learn what's working and what's not working. When you learn what's working on your successful site, you can try implementing that in the less successful site and see how that impacts on your results.

    if you want a quick solution for this, Adwords is going to provide it for you. You're gonna have to pay though. If these products are owned by yours then it might just be great to have a support forum for your clients to come back again and again for updates and support.

    I think getting traffic to the website can be done by adopting various key activities such as pay per click advertising in the search engines like Google Adwordshttp://www.google.com/adwords or Yahoo http://searchmarketing.yahoo.com. Apart from it, you can also involve some other marketing ideas like:
    1. Creating fresh con tent for the visitor.
    2. Try to rank well in Search Engine Ranking by incorporating various SEO as it is big source for driving traffic

    3. Create your press release for the various milestone of your business.
    4.Take the advantage of social media marketing.

    There's hundreds of factors that you need to consider in driving traffic to your website.

    Design, navigation, user interface, content, information, etc.

    Now, about your case, there are chances that the other website is better when it comes to contents, or it is user-friendly than the other one.

    One of the best ways in order for you to drive traffic to your website is to provide what users want. Give the most detailed information as much as possible that its not only worth visiting, but it's also worth reading and sharing.

    This greatly helps if you have the right "fans" or "followers". Took me a lot of time to kickstart mine and I even wanted to leave Facebook back then since my fanpage doesn't get enough visitors. But after a few weeks, it went from 300 to 1000, then to 10000, and now, 33000. :D

    Social Media Marketing is effective and low-cost. Make sure that your products have pages on major social networking sites, visit places like forums, and demonstrate knowledge and authority with your target audience. Show them that you are an expert in your field, and keep your finger on the pulse of what your target demographic wants and needs. Then, use your best communication skills (I recommend learning NLP from a site like Rapid NLP twitter @RapidNLP). This gives you insights into the minds and behavior of your potential customers that will help you connect your product and websites to the way to meet their needs in their own minds.

    What draws people to your site as traffic is the idea that they have something to GAIN from your site, and in order to effectively communicate that, you need to be able to listen to them and understand what their needs are, and then powerfully and effectively communicate the way that your site can help them meet their needs.

    Good luck!

    Getting traffic is one of the most important tasks for any web master. Getting traffic is an ongoing task and you must be constantly doing it, if you want to get traffic and keep it. Some ideas to get traffic for free:
    1. Search engines have always been a major way to get traffic for free. That is why you need to do your homework and optimize your site so that it ranks well for the keywords you target.
    2. Social bookmarking sites are another powerful way to get traffic for free.
    3. Social networks are also a way to get traffic for free.
    4. Another way to get traffic for free is from other sites in your niche. Getting links with other sites in your niche is also good for SEO, especially if you manage to get links without the famous no follow attribute.
    5. Content drives most traffic when you offer something useful.

    When promoting via Facebook, I suggest you guy use fan pages, not personal pages. In Fan pages, people, even if they are not your friend, can get updates. And you can even communicate with them. If you use your personal page, you need these unknown people to add you for them to get your updates. This can endanger both you and their account, for adding unknown people as your friend.

    To drive traffic to your website, you should make plans and strategies about products and services, you should create interests in people that they come to your website. Use eye-catching photo designs in Facebook posts so that people come to your website, use inspirational quotes, motivational quotes and funny quotes in Facebook posts. It will increase people's interest in your Facebook page and your website too.
