Go Organic With Traffic

Organic traffic is traffic coming from unpaid searches through search engines such as Google, Yahoo and etc. You can achieve such by optimizing your website so as it is search engine friendly, also known as SEO or Search Engine Optimization. It involves applying proven, and legal(as far as search engined are concern) techniques applied to websites to generate more traffic and in turn create successful conversion in terms of sales.

Organic traffic comes with time unless you have enough money to buy it. Meaning, if your site is new and you don't want to purchase traffic or advertise your site in a paid advertisement, you have to wait days, weeks or months before you site gets thousands or even hundreds of visitors per day through search engines.

However, you can speed up this 'procees of maturity' for you site by applying proven and effective techniques to generate traffic. But that too requires hard work. There's no magic trick in it. You have to experiment what technique or combination of techniques is effective to your site. This means that you have to apply SEO or other techniques to your site and leave it for a couple of weeks and while you are wait there checking your traffic statistics.

One very good qoute that you have to remember always as a webmaster is: 'Contents is King'. This means that if you want you site to generate a good amount of visitors and make them come back for more, you have to stuff your site with good and informative contents. Remember that almost all internet surfers browse the web in search of information. If your site can provide what they are looking for, they will leave you site at once the never come back again.

My blogs and other websites rely mostly in search engines for traffic. And so far, I have a steady flow of visitors. The good thing with it is, you don't spend a penny for the traffic that you get.
