5 Ways To Increase Traffic To Your Website
TABLE OF CONTENTS
There are various hacks to increase website traffic. You will find those techniques in this article. But, only a few of them will bring instant website traffic. Rest of the techniques will require some time to increase the website through Google.
This article includes only those techniques which bring instant traffic to your website.
Paid Traffic For Blog
One of the easiest ways to get traffic to your website is Paid Traffic. If you are ready to invest some capital into your business then this technique is for you. In this technique, you need to spend some money to buy traffic for your site.
In the first case, you will hire an individual or organization to send traffic to your blog or website. But, this kind of traffic has many limitations like
- Highly unorganized Industry. There are higher chances that you will get cheated.
- Quality of traffic may or may not be good. It may be possible that you don’t get the real traffic on your blog.
- There are high chances that your website will get banned from platforms like Google Adsense. Google doesn’t like this kind of paid traffic.
In the second case, you will run a paid campaign on platforms like Google Adword, Taboola, etc. In this case, you will drive traffic by showing advertisements on someone else site. In this case, the traffic will be real and you need to spend money to gets it.
I strongly suggest to go for the second case if you have enough money and wants high-quality traffic but the first case will work best if you’re looking for cheap traffic.
Social Media Sharing
Social Media Sharing is another best way to increase traffic on your website. In this technique, all you need to do is share your content on all social media networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
Here it is also important to note that by the term ‘Social Networking Sites’, we do not mean a few sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. But, we means to say all social media sites available online.
Do you know? As per this Wikipedia page, there are more than 250 social networking sites available online. If you instant traffic to your site then shares your content on all these sites.
Confused? It seems to be very difficult. Right?
Don’t Worry, we have a solution for this. You can automate your social media activities using a free tool called ‘IFTTT‘ (If this then that).
Yes, you can automate your social media sharing activities using social automation tools available online.

Yes, Quora is another best way to get traffic to your site immediately. Trust me, I am using this technique from the very first day of my blog. And, It’s working.
Next, Quora not only helps you to get traffic to your site for free but also helps you to create backlinks online free. Yes, you can share the URL of your site while asking or answering questions on Quora. The below snapshot is a proof for the same.

Community Driven Sites
Community driven sites are another best way to bring instant website traffic to your site. In this case, all you need is to find a good community related to your site and thereby contribute (before sharing your site) and share your blog on it.
For example, I have shared my site on ManageWP and I got a good response from it. Immediately, few people visit my site to read the complete article.
Note: If in case you don’t find any good community based driven site then you can use any Aggregator site instead. Aggregator sites also help in increasing traffic instantly. (But, do little research before using any aggregator site. The site like Reddit is very savvy to spam. You will get banned even for sharing the legitimate link in the post.
The Power Of Free
The word ‘Free’ is another best way to drive website traffic instantly. In this technique, all you need to do is simply provide a free product or service to your visitors.
EmbroideryShristi is already using this technique and it is getting more than 1000 page views per day from western countries.
I strongly suggest, if you can afford the little amount of investment then this method should be first in your priority list. Trust, people will definitely visit your site for collecting freebies.
Next, I called this ‘Investment’ because the amount invested in providing freebies will get recovered from showing the advertisements. If more people visit your site then definitely you will get paid more from the advertisers.
Hence, providing freebie is an Investment rather than an expense.
The Final Words
There are many ways to increase website traffic but above all, I have listed only those five hacks which will bring instant website traffic to your site.
If you start investing some of your time in the above-mentioned method then you will definitely start observing traffic on your site within a week.
Note: The above hacks will work only if you implement these techniques for at least one week. It is not possible to drive instant traffic to any website within 24 hours or 48 hours.
If you implement the above techniques for a week then slowly and gradually you will start observing some traffic to your site and then implementing other different ways to increase website traffic you can win the jackpot.
