How does a new Web Site get more Traffic?

How does a small business with nearly no funds get traffic to their site? I just opened Diamond T Design for business in Jan 2017. I am not getting enough traffic or business to pay the bills. I know you have all been there and I would love to get some good advice.

Well, you are in a saturated market and no one is just going to "come" to your site. You will have to promote it in one way or another. SEO would be my first guess, writing articles and linking them back to your site. Finding an easy phrase would be step one, write articles until you rank on page 1 and then move onto another phrase.

The second issue is lack of SSL, I mean it is free for pete sake.

Third, you are landing on 1 site and adding a cart to a completely different site. Portal pages are almost always frowned upon with any search engine.

gaining website authority and trust is always extremely difficult with any e-commerce sites, would you enter your credit card somewhere you didn't trust? I have no experience with DistributorCentral at all. The site looks like a pyramid scheme at a quick glance, that will also hurt your rankings.

The goal of any website is to provide useful content people are interested in, a smaller bounce rate = Higher Google Rankings

Where in GODs name can you get Free SSL, that will not prompt for Browser warning that this is "unrecognized Cert Authority", which renders such SSL totally useless for a real site. I mean Ok for a Site used on a private network, but not on the Public Internet. Or is there a Free SSL cert new I dont know about?

PS, your message was SPAM filtered.
Can you PM me the URL, if the URL actually leads to a Free SSL that is actually good for an Internet based site.

I am new here. IDK why it was filtered. You can google "let's encrypt" it is an org site that has free SSL. I am not sure of any device that will give off a warning

An SSL Certificate is needed for Shop sites. It also provides better ranking with search engines. Usually 60$ a year, its a much-needed asset for security also.

The biggest problem with Lets Encrypt is, will your hosting provider accept its certificate. Some big providers will not, yet. So if you're provider don't accept it, your options are to move or pay.

I prefer Wordpress over companies like Distributor Central who offer canned sites. Good for starting but options become limited. Good luck

Wordpress is good for a business card class Web Site, not anything serious.

As a business owner for 40 Years, I can tell you that hands down this Anoox non profit search engine and social network is by far the best way for a new Web Site get more Traffic. Of course if you are VC funded and have Millions for Advertising then go with Google or TV Advertising, but if you are a small business with a new Web Site you will not find better Advertising or lower cost than anoox.

Me too. We were getting screwed Advertising wise by Google, charging us like $2000 per Month for traffic that was not converting, and when we wanted support they would connect us with folks in India which I could not understand for my life. Since finding about Anoox, we have increased our traffic for a fraction of a cost. Thanks GOD for this non profit search engine. Thats all I can say.

It is amazing how so many people do not know these facts. That's because Wall Street based Mafia (sorry Media) only covers Wall Street based Google and nit this Main Street based Anoox

Google does extremely well at converting if you know how to create an ad copy, you are competing against people with a lot of practice and know how to pick words and images

Wishing good traffic for a website is good, but allot of work requires to accomplish this wish.

Plenty of ranking factors over there that need to be focused on if you are new in any niche of blogging or business. First of all you need to focused on your social traffic, If you are a business then make offers and discounts coupon on regular bases and present on your social pages. These type of marking moves brings more traffic.

Leave your view as an expert on different forums, give your reviews about stuff relevant to your web's niche.

Guest blogging is a best move to present your expertise and getting handsome traffic

No, matter you are business website admin or blogger, a handsome content always require, you should update your content on regular bases.

Another factor that tend into development side is to find a web server that bare your site traffic more professional. Well, always consider a good WebHost to present your work.
A suggestion: UAESOL.com (Web Host)

Good points, I agree with most.
Specially that: "Leave your view as an expert on different forums, give your reviews about stuff relevant to your web's niche."
And on that note, I have not found a better site for this purpose than here Anoox.
What you think?

On a national scale, your chances are slim to none unless you specialize and pay to play with the top search engines. With a small budget per month, the objective is to grow organically and hopefully get some conversions. Best to focus on your area of business first. Offer incentives to get the locals to bookmark your site and keep coming back with new products.

Use social media but don't expect anything.
Submit a press release to your local paper with your website.
Whats the websites name?

Mangles, excellent answer.
I would also add that this Anoox non-profit search engine social network, is the only place I have found that delivers effective advertising for very little monthly costs. We pay em like $50 per month and get more traffic than $500 per month we were giving Google. What do you think? Have you tried Anoox advertising and if yes what has been your take? Cheers.

I have to admit, its not so easy as so many small online business popup like daisy. No any paid ad and get traffic, I don't think that's for real. Some investment is needed.

SEO's are complete waste of Money. They are ultimate SCAM.
They promise what of course they cannot deliver since they have NO control over search results of Google and there is only 15 listings per 1st page of Google for any search results.

CM, I agree. Paying SEOs is as good as taking your Money and betting in a roulette table in Vegas. Actually, I correct myself, chances of you making Money from betting in a roulette table in Vegas is much higher than paying a SEO to place your Site on top of Google results. After all, 10,000 different businesses may want top position for same Keyword. So Mathematically it is impossible.

Lux, I agree. To be exact if the Keyword that you want your Site listed under has no search value, then you can use a SEO to get your Site on top for that search. But if the Keyword that you want your Site listed under has search value, then NO WAY in HELL are you going to use any SEO to get your Site on top of that search since Google is making Millionsfrom such valuable Keywords as you can see from Google search based revenues being in 10s of Billions.
