So How Can I Promote My duplicated Website For Free?

The best way to promote any website for free online is to get your site ranked on the first page of Google for lots of the phrases that people use to search for what you offer.  Because that isn’t t possible with a copy website you need to set up your own blog or website to get around the problem.

Before you begin creating a blog think about your ideal customer and what kind of content will appeal to them

When you create your blog provide helpful content that solves problems and make sure that it is optimized for the search engines.  This will make it easier for your buyers to find your site when they are looking for solutions to problems. Once they are on your blog you will have the opportunity to tell them about your store front website and whatou offer there.

An essential first step to creating a blog or website that will be found in the search engines

The first step is keyword research, to find out what phrases your target market use when they search online. You can do extensive keyword research for free by taking advantage of a 7 day free trial  at Wordtracker

This is a very cost effective way to promote a website or affiliate link for free online. SEO (search engine optimization) is not hard. It’s just a matter of researching keywords, writing content that is optimized for those keywords, and getting links to your content. No mystery, those are the steps.

When you create a website or blog that outlines solutions,  resources, benefits,and reviews you will be able to to reach your target market and establish yourself as  an authority in your niche.

Getting Your Website Found By the Search Engines – Essential SEO Keys

How to get more website visitors

If you already have a website or blog and you want to get more vistors, you need to optimize your website for the search engines, in other words you need to give the search engines what they like to see.  

When your website is search engine optimized you will start to climb in search engine rankings and you will get many more targeted visitors to your website.

Once your website is ranked on the first pages of search results you will get much more free search engine traffic. The time invested in search engine optimization is well worth it.

Here are five keys to get you started with search engine optimization or SEO

  1. One of the first steps to SEO is to brainstorm and research the words potential visitors use to find what you have to offer, these words are known as keywords. You can’t afford to guess the keyword phrases that your visitors will use to search. If you build your pages around keywords that your potential visitors don’t actually use, you will wallow in the search engine doldrums and remain invisible to your target market. 
  2. Once you have identified the keywords your target market use to search, build your pages around those keywords and make sure that you include the keywords in:
  • the file name
  • title tag
  • description
  • keyword tag
  • headings
  • throughout the text
  • in anchor text
  • in alt image tags
  1. Another very important aspect of search engine optimization is links. You need a good linking structure within your site. Make sure you link your pages to each other with anchor text. Anchor text is simply a clickable link.
  2. You also need links from other websites, the more links you have, the better. Do make sure that the links pointing to your site are from relevant sites and try to make sure that you have links that use your keywords in the anchor text.
  3. Make sure that once your visitor lands on your site that they have good reason to stay. You need good quality information, attractively laid out with lots of white space. Look at your site through the eyes of a visitor and make sure that it is user friendly or they will just click away.
