One of the advantages of running my own Web Design business (Purple Paw Web Design) is the daily barage of emails I receive updating me about the latest advancements or news relating to the Internet. Those who read here regularly will have noticed that Site Pro News, one of the most widely read webmaster resources, features quite often in my updates.
Today I wanted to bring to your attention another fantastic update from the folks over at Site Pro News which discusses the top 5 traffic sources for your website.
According to Titus Hoskins, the author of the article, “Quality traffic is what produces your online revenue, whether from advertising or from sales on your site.” Mr Hoskins also highlights that “…you have to get that traffic in the first place if you want to earn an online income. The more traffic you have, usually, the more you will make…”.
What are the top 5 website traffic sources?
- SEO and the Search Engines
- Article Marketing
- PPC – Pay Per Click Advertising
- Social Media Sites
- Email Marketing and Follow-up Lists
As many of my readers will know, I am a big supporter of Social Media and SEO, and have posted about them a few times in the past. I find it interesting that Titus lists email marketing at #5 on the list, as I personally believe that a mailing list and follow-up system should be a must for almost any website.
That aside, Titus raises some incredibly good points and the article is well worth the read. Head over to Site Pro News to read it today.
