Every Internet marketer needs to find ways of getting more traffic to their website. But “more traffic” alone will not bring you more business if it is not “targeted traffic”.
By “targeted traffic” we mean website visitors who will be interested in what you are selling. Don’t make the mistake that a lot of Internet marketers make and buy “guaranteed visitors” from a referral company because in most cases those “guaranteed visitors” will NOT be targeted traffic, and will leave your website straightaway.

The good news is that there are plenty of free and low cost ways to attract good quality targeted traffic to your website. It will requires some time and effort on your part to master them, but once you’ve done that, you’ll benefit from a steady flow of traffic for years to come.
