Hi all,

I recently registered my website with google adsense.

Can anyone help me in providing me the information that how can I get a good traffic to my website. What are the best possible ways of getting traffic.

Any help in this matter will be highly appreciated.

Thanks
Kashif

Try looking in the other forums at this site. You can use PPC, SEO or a number of methods. But, you'll have to read and learn and implement. Getting traffic takes knowledge and effort - but you can gain the knowledge to make the effort here at this site.

Whatever you do stay away from the "100,000 visitors for $9.99" ;)

One bit of advice a bookkeeper once gave me:
Be wary of anyone who contacts you first with a proposal pitch (as opposed to someone you discover and contact yourself). Look with a highly jaundiced eye at anyone who promises you traffic. Always research the company exhaustively before you jump in (WebmasterWorld's a great place to start) and jump in rarely, only with great caution.

There's a lot of junk exposure out there, never seen by a human eye, where the clicks are generated by robots. There are so many scams you could write a thick book about them all... Anybody offering you a 'guaranteed' search engine ranking should especially set off your alarms.

(oopps. ..I just re-read your post. Looks like you're on the AdSense side of things, not the AdWords side. But Anyway, the rest still applies)
Anyway-
Have a look at the Google AdWords and Yahoo/Overture pay-per-click programs. Those are the industry stalwarts for PPC, with the best reach and decent reputations. Then read, read, read about organic search engine optimization. Start with the archives. Keep it clean, try to avoid spammy tricks, which will eventually only turn around to bite you in the arse, and if you optimize well you'll rise in the ranks.

Don't look for them, they'll find you, and when they do... stay away from them like the plague ;)

I guess they haven't contacted me since our sites have pretty nice traffic. I mean, I receive spam emails and
such....but other than those, that's it

Thanks for the heads up

Read up on SEO, trade links with other sites (for traffic and to help with rankings), do PPC if you like.

I'm pretty sure the TOS here forbids shameless self-promotion, so you'll understand I hope if I promote myself cryptically, and with a modicum of shame.

If you're looking to add keyword-relevant high-quality content to your website, there are...certain users of this very forum...(wink wink) who write web content at reasonable rates.

See my profile (nudge-nudge).

Yeah, profiles are great.

You have some "computer information tutorials"?
Did you write them yourself? There are tons of them available on the web.

I need good trafic?
To read your tutorials, or to click your ads?

When you really want to make something out of adsense I suggest you start a site really worth looking at. Not just one made for adsense.

Theres no magic bullet, quality traffic can take years to build, submit to directories, do link exchanges, forum and guest book postings, its very labor intensive. I have had some sucess with pc based website submission programs.

Last time I checked guest book listings didn't bring quality traffic to a site.

Follow just one tip.
Have link exchange with as many sites as you can.
Best of luck

My first post here at webmasterworld...

The best way to generate traffic, is to make sure that your website (and subpages) all get indexed, and are optimized for seo before submission.

If your site offers genuine content, that are sought after, you will receive traffic from the search engines.
