Learning about traffic generation is in essence what internet marketing is. Sales copy comes after that. There are various ways to generate traffic to your site.
Many will tell you to start PPC. In PPC, you pay for getting targeted traffic from the search engines. But over the years, keywords on PPC have become very expensive. One simple click can cost you $1 or more for a particular keyword. You can’t compete against the big players with deep pockets involved in PPC.
Paying for traffic that does not convert well is a sure recipe for failure. You will start looking for ways to get free traffic. You will think of how to get a lot of targeted traffic for free. Only a page one position for your site on the search engine can give you that.
You will want to learn search engine optimization (SEO). But here again you are competing with big players with lots of experience and deep pockets.
There is a sort of entry barrier for newbies in internet marketing. Nobody will ever tell you that it is almost impossible to get your new website ranked high on Google. Google takes the age of a website into account before it starts giving the site importance.
A few page sites don’t count with Google. Google likes authority sites! Your site should have many pages and thousands of backlinks before Google will position it on its search pages.
What to do? Can’t compete with big players? ….. You can learn to use the authority sites to get traffic for your site.

Learning how to get free traffic is not an easy thing. Lot of work is involved. But if you can learn it, you’re on your way to making a lot of money.
