How do I Get Traffic to My Site?
After you have a basic understanding of content and where to publish your AWeber affiliate marketing material, you will need to drive interested visitors to your site.
Getting Traffic to Your Website or Blog
Getting traffic to your website or blog is something that must be looked into deeply. Not only do you need visitors to your website, but you also need people who are looking specifically for what you have to offer.
There are many different ways to generate traffic, but the main ones you should focus on are:
SEO ( Search Engine Optimization ) is the process of optimizing one’s website to get better results from search engines. This basically means “tweaking” your site’s content/code in order to get easily “seen” by the major search engines, such as:
People who are looking for a product or service ( hopefully yours! ) use these engines whenever they have a need, so understanding how they work is very important.

Pay Per Click Search Engine Advertising
Pay Per Click Search Engine Advertising (PPC) is the best way to get visitors to your website. When people type in specific keyword or phrase in a search engine, it will produce organic search results, which are not purchased by an advertiser.
In addition, that search can also produce paid results based on whatever keyword or phrase you have typed in. These listings are sponsored on a per-bid basis. When your ad appears, you make a specific payment when a visitor actually clicks on the ad.
