The importance of determining your traffic method before you get started with your web development is that you may not need a lot of content on your website if you decide to go with paid search.
There are essentially two ways to get traffic to your site. You can either pay for traffic or you can develop a site that generates traffic through search engines. Of course there are other approaches like foreign involvement and comments involvement and Craigslist involvement, but for the most part it really comes down to two options: Paid search and natural search.
Paid Search Overview
Paid search is absolutely the fastest way to generate traffic on your website. Becoming good at paid search will translate into real results right away. Unfortunately, particularly in small business arenas where services or products are quite expensive, paid search can be brutally expensive. Thankfully, using a console that is Adwords Keyword Tool, you can take a look at the sort of click costs you’re going to pay for particular terms before you get started. If you are caught between two lines, spent some time looking at click costs and see which are willing to submit to the terms of marketing expenditures.
Natural Search Overview
Just because you are getting visits through ” a free source,” doesn’t mean that the development of the property in order to be in a position to generate free traffic is free.
Natural search takes a lot more and a lot of time, then one needs to expect the results to be somewhat slow relative to paid search. Gone are the days where you could launch a site on a Friday and have natural search flowing by Sunday. It is irresponsible to expect results immediately, in fact a healthy approach is to assume that it will take good 30 to 90 days to see any real traffic from natural search.
All things considered, defining the approach for traffic is absolutely imperative before you get started. Do not bother putting up a website before you have decided the approach you’re going to take with marketing. The layout for the site, never mind the load time, the amount of content, etc. all will hinge on the sort of traffic method you decide on.
