A torrent of traffic. A gush of new visitors. A river of fresh faces (and wallets) on your website each day.

Merely images from a nice dream? They don’t have to be just a dream. If you are struggling with getting more traffic to your website, just waiting around and hoping something will change for the better is probably not the best idea. You have to take action if you want to get results.

Fortunately, there are some very simple things you can do to drive traffic to your site. It does not take a degree in e-commerce or online marketing to get there, either. Rather, it just takes mastering a few, basic principles of driving traffic online.

Sure, most people who want loads of traffic to their site are willing to pay for each click, using banner or text-ad advertising. But that’s expensive! Fortunately, there is a better way: through mass content distribution.

If you want to increase site traffic from the Web without paying for clicks, here are 3 steps to getting there:

1. Identify a hungry target audience:

Out on the 1337x , everybody is looking for something. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be there. The vast majority of visits to websites are the result of  people having conducted searches via major search engines sites. As you know, every search starts with a need, expressed as a keyword search term.

That specific need that any certain Internet searcher has means that they are hungry for solutions that come in one of two possible forms: increasing their pleasure or decreasing their pain. Your goal should be to think of a real human problem that you are solving through the products and services on your site. If you can think of one, then you know there is a hungry audience out there who wants to consume your content.

2. Create great content that satisfies a need they have:

To get lots more traffic to your site, you are going to of course want your site’s content to be well-thought-out and valuable. But, you are also going to want to plaster the Internet with lots and lots of really great content that exists on other sites but back-linked to yours – in the form of videos, blogs, lenses, articles, white papers, and other content.

3. Distribute your content to multiple sites at once:

Once you have created your content, you are going to need to get it out there as much as possible. Don’t just post the content you have worked so hard to produce to one single site. Rather, as long as you are posting it under the same author name, you should be posting it to hundreds of sites at once. To accomplish this, you will need a content distribution system that does the work for you at the press of a button.

Getting lots of Internet traffic does not need to come from pay-per-click. Instead, you need to create and distribute great content. Great content that feeds a hungry audience is a cornerstone of very successful Internet marketing. Once you have created your content, be sure to distribute it to as many different places on the Internet as possible.
