I mentioned earlier that directories are a great way to get one way links. Directories have been used by those in the Search Engine Optimization world for some time, to increase rankings and bring more traffic to their site. However, many SEO experts believe that the Search Engines are giving less power to directories.
There are still many ways to get good links, writing articles (like this one), trading links, buying links, etc. But I have never noticed people talk much about one of the BEST ways not only to get a powerful link to your site, but also to drive traffic to your site. And that is….
There are more and more website review sites, and product review sites popping up on the Internet. For one thing, creating one can be a good way to make some extra money. Some people can even earn a living by owning review sites.
That said, review sites can bring you TONS of traffic. Sites that I have worked on have had over *3000 visitors in a week by being featured on a review site. Not only that most review sites archive their reviews, which can mean a continual flow of traffic to your site, and a permanent link.
If you want a ton of quick traffic to your site, search for review sites that review websites in your industry. It can be a great way to drive traffic to your site.
I know you might be wondering what review site brought my site over *3000 visitors in a week. It’s called family first and you can visit them here: http://www.familyfirst.com/
They review family friendly websites. When I had my site reviewed it was free, but now they charge a small fee. Most reveiw sites are like that.
If you have a really cool or different site, you might want to submit it to Cool Site of The Day (http://www.coolsiteoftheday.com/). We had a site reviewed on cool site of the day and got over 2000 visitors from that link the day it was featured.
There are many more review sites out there just waiting for your site to review. Review sites (especially the bigger ones) can be an excellent way to drive traffic to your site without the Search Engines.
*Note: I have had other sites reviewed on Family First and not generated nearly the amount of traffic as my first site, probably because they have changed the way they link out to sites. They used to link out to sites on their main page, but now they bury the links deeper in their site making it less likely to get visitors from being reviewed on their site.
