Traffic Methods That Actually Send YOUR Traffic to OTHER Websites
(Page 1 of 5 )
Believe it or not, there are many rather popular website promotion methods that actually drive traffic away from your website.They usually clutter up your website with a bunch of graphics and do virtually nothing to improve your bottom line. Here are just a few examples:
Top Sites - The premise is that you put a vote button on your site and people click to vote for you, raising your site up in the list of "top sites". People who visit the top site list see your site near the top and click on your banner to see what your site is all about. Things to consider: You have to put a graphic on your site. Of course, you will make the link open in a new window, so you don't lose your visitor, but you have created a distraction for your visitor. You want your visitor to focus on your sales message, not a graphic that leads your visitors away from your website. Let's be serious. If you've participated in a Top Site or visited a top site page, when's the last time you did any shopping from it? Realistically, the Top Site List serves to best promote the website that created the list rather than the individuals on that list. Check your website stats to see how much traffic you get from this list and see if anyone buys.
