The Internet has become a proven source for generating income. However, simply having a website is no guarantee of business success. No matter how well designed and constructed your website may be its success will depend largely on how well it generates web traffic. For many sites the best way to generate web traffic, is to buy web traffic.
In its simplest form, web traffic refers to the number of visitors to a site and the number of pages they visit at the site. Websites monitor their traffic in order to identify trends that will enable them to increase sales through product/service selection or through ads posted on their site.

Once you’ve setup your website or blog you’ll need to generate traffic. A quick search of the Internet and you’ll find a host of companies whose business is increasing website traffic. They offer a range of services in the form of “packages” that are designed to bring visitors to your website. Knowing what company to choose, what package to buy and how much to spend can seem daunting, but here are three tips to help you along:
There are of course ways to increase website traffic that doesn’t involve buying web traffic. The most common means of generating web visits is through SEO (search engine optimization). SEO involves placing keywords in the web page title and strategically throughout the site in order to rank higher on search engines such as Google and Yahoo. Below are some other free and low cost ideas to generate cheap web traffic.
Think links! Find ways to link your site through other websites. This can be done through link exchanges, through comments you post on other sites, and through posts you make as part of a forum.
Blogs and Videos. Blogs and videos are great mediums for broadcasting your product, service or ideas. Within them you can provide a link that directs visitors right to your website.

For instance an Ecourse on cooking vegetarian meals might include recipes for vegetarian breakfasts one day, lunches the next day, and vegetarian dinners on the third day. The objective being is to establish repeat visitors to your web site.
