Driving traffic to a website is often one of the biggest challenges of any web developer. To achieve natural rankings on Google, you must fulfill a few specific criteria. One of these key criteria is having a low Alexa ranking. Alexa is a site that ranks websites according to their popularity. To achieve a lower ranking, you need to drive more traffic to your site. Though it seems like a daunting task, there are several methods in which to do this.

The first method that I found to lower your Alexa score is just simply by visiting their site and downloading their toolbar. Once you have downloaded their toolbar, set your default home page to your website. Now every time you open your web browser on your computer, you will be reporting to Alexa that your site is getting a visit. If possible, ask a few friends to do the same so you will have a few toolbars reporting statistics on your behalf.

Next, install the Alexa widget on your web page. This widget will also send information to Alexa regarding how many times your site is being viewed. Many do not like having the widget visible on their web page. It is possible to place the widget within a div tag and then hide it using a javascript. For those that have a decent ranking, you may not mind having your ranking displayed at the bottom of your site.

Another way that you can drive instant traffic to your site is by using a site called UpMyRank.com. This site is basically a network of people that are browsing one another’s sites to make their numbers look good. The better your numbers look to Google, the better you placement will be. Now, I have to give this method a disclaimer. Never use this site with a Windows operating system because the random browsing of sites will cause your computer to pick up a virus. I have found success in setting up an old computer with an Ubuntu operating system and running the UpMyRank program by using the Wine emulator. There are tutorials on how to setup Ubuntu and wine out on the internet.

Of course there is no substitute for traffic generated by back links. Back link traffic brings real traffic to your site by people who are interested in what you have to offer. The best method that I have found to achieve these back links is by using FreeTrafficSystem.com. Before spending your time writing articles and submitting them, make sure to read the instructions on how to incorporate your links into your articles. I have a couple sites that I promote on a regular basis. One is an auto transport site, and the other is a site containing mean boss stories. I have written several articles for these sites that were declined because I was not incorporating my links into my paragraphs; I was just placing them down at the bottom of my articles. The site has good reason for declining articles that are not formatted correctly. However, this method has worked marvelously for me.

Lastly, install Google analytics on your sites so you can track your progress. Without any way of knowing what progress you are making, you cannot effectively target your efforts to achieve the best end result. Google analytics will provide you with information regarding traffic from search engines, direct traffic, most popular keywords, and so much more! By utilizing these methods you will find your sites moving up in the Google rankings.
