    I have two websites, one lists important dates and events from world history [ hisdates.com ] and the other is an online collection of popular jokes and quotes [ jokesplusquotes.com ].

    I have submitted the site urls to major search engines and directories, but still unable to drive traffic to the sites.

    Can anyone please suggest, how to increase the traffic to the sites.

    Thanks in advance.

    There are lots of ways to generate traffic and its not just as simple as just submitting your site to search engines and directories.

    Get some unique and great content.
    Generate some good quality links to your site.
    Use PPC Marketing to drive traffic.

    Well it's nice discussion going on. Online marketing is gaining rapid popularity nowadays. Effective tools such as SEO, Social media sites, link building,forum and blog participation etc. are very helpful. Twitter and face-book also helps to reach our targeted audience and helps to gain traffic. To increase the website PR you have to get more back links from higher pr sites . I also do online marketing through <<Link Dropped>> and i realize that marketing tools really helps lot to promote our business or site. I think this discussion is really helpful for marketing related people.

    No self promotion in posts. Keep them into signatures.

    You should do link exchange with same theme sites and blogs which have massive traffic. It will help as well as go for blog commenting, article submission. I think it will help you to invite more and more traffic.

    Thanks

    Another good way to increase hits is to have fresh content generated automatically by users and scripts.
    You can get users to do this for you by creating a forum or you can do it yourself by creating a blog. Each time the search engines crawl your site, they will reward you as search engines like new content.

    If anyone's interested, I have devised an RSS scraping script in vbs which will poll a configurable list of RSS urls for fresh news items and populate a database with cleansed XML. You can then simply query the latest x articles from this table to keep your content "refreshed".

    Give me a shout if you would like a copy of the script.

    I'm really new to SEO and I want to learn more about it. Based on what I have read and experienced, what I did to increase traffic to my one and only site, first I provide good contents to it then i did bookmarking and directory submission. But during my first months of running my site, i admit that i asked help from an SEO firm.

    Here are a few off page Optimization Techniques:

    • Directory Submission
    • Articles Submission
    • Press Release Submission
    • Squidoo Lens Creation
    • Hub Pages Creation
    • Social Bookmarking (Digg, Delicious, Stumble, Reddit etc.)
    • Blog Posting
    • Be helpful in Forums
    • Classified Ads
    • Social Networking (Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, LinkedIn etc.)

    Keep your site updated with unique and fresh contents, if your site doesn't require frequent changes in content, add a blog section and start posting blogs. Link building can really help increase site popularity, but link with Good sites.
