How the heck do I get people to my site?

I use affiliate marketing, but what else works?

I need some advice on how to get people to my site. I currently get around 500 visitors a day, mainly from affiliate marketing. My page does have a PR of 4. But I only get a few visitors per day from SE's. So how do I get a consistant stream of visitors to my site? A few thousand a day would be nice. Do you have any recommendations? Maybe methods, or good ebooks describing your preferred method?

Have you done any optimazation for the SE's? Lots of posts buried in this site on the topic, if not.

Assuming you have, how big is your site? Is it one of those 1-page deals that sells an ebook or some such? In general, search engine traffic increases with the number of content-filled pages you have. You never know what someone's going to type in that might land one of your pages on top of the search pack. If you only have a few pages, you may try adding some more and funneling them to your sales page.

Hi Tom

I would suggest you to identify some keywords and develop your pages around these.
Get your site listed in more directories and engines.
You should keep monitoring and adjusting your pages to fine tune the performance in Search Engine results.

Word of Mouth. Spread the news about your site to your friends and family members. Put a 'Tell a Friend' link on your site. Sponsor some local school/college sports event if you have budget or just distribute Free T-shirts ;)

Work on smaller things to get bigger traffic

Here is my advice:

1. Content is king - If you only have a few pages you will find it hard to get more visitors because you don't have much content for them to find you on.

2. Links going to your site. If this is done "CORRECTLY" then it will boost your ranking and hits considerably. This also ties in with number 1 because if you have a lot of pages then they will count towards your backward links thus raising the importance of your site.

3. Title Tag - Make sure EVERY page has its own unique title tag. If all the pages have the same tag most SE's won't index those other pages properly if at all.

4. Adwords - If you can afford it and you do it right adwords can give you a massive boost in hits which you might want to do while you keep working on higher placements on SE's.
