    Got traffic


    Say your ranking a new site for a business... I dunno... Your new SEO agency site.

    Among other SEO elements, how important is traffic to a site's ability to rank?

    What are your best practices for directing traffic to a site before it starts receiving organic traffic?

    Anyone can buy for traffic the site so it will not affect our existing ranking but if your site properly optimized then you can generate good & relevant traffic and for direct traffic, PPC is good if you have some budget.

    Hi vinsam

    Alexa only tracks visits from those with the alexa toolbar installed on their systems. I don't know of many folks, meaning casual users of the net, people with phones, that have the alexa toolbar installed.

    Alexa at best is just a poor metric. Google doesn't use it .... so why is it important ??

    I have seen many users who posted only one post that is completely useless. See above two posts one that has been replied back by Knowonespecial as he is very supportive members. Most of the times I have seen that we discuss only with each other and OP doesn't care about that. Even it might be possible they will never post again. I know many old members don't post here due to this reason and they don't find new technical stuff as they expect.
    Btw i have reported both posts as spam.

    • Will-O-The-Wisp agrees : I've banned both users, but I'll leave the posts up because without them the thread will make less sense.

    If you are looking for traffic other than organic traffic, till organic traffic kicks in then my best bet is Local business directories + social media.
    Local Directories do generate decent traffic and business leads. You can use the FREE options or paid options as you like.
    Similarly putting some money into social media promotions can give your brand a good exposure, so when the organic rankings appear your target audience may be familiar with your brand and may prefer your result over other ranking above you.

    Typically no, blog commenting to drop your link is considered spam in a lot of cases.

    Creating content for the sake of creating content, because you heard publishing regular articles is good for SEO, won’t get you very far. It fact it may even cause a lot of damage to your reputation.
