    Hi there,

    I recently launched a website technology news and reviews site which is hosted on my own server running Wordpress. At the moment all the reviews I have had have been fairly good with people liking the majority of the content on the site and the design of it. My big problem is I'm really lost on how to start generating real traffic frequently. I have tried the obvious ways such as twitter mass following and SEO customization but to no avail. I'm wondering if someone could provide me with a number of techniques or some help too start building a following.

    Thanks for any response in advance,
    Sean,

    *Sorry can't link it's against the rules.

    Hmm, no you haven't, keep trying... and it's called "SEO optimization", which takes time. But why did you start something as broad as a "technology site"? If you are doing it as hobby, fine. But if your goal is to make money, you are doing it wrong.

    Lol, your post is so generic.. people don't even know how to help, lol.

    .. you do know what the O in SEO stands for, right? "Search Engine Optimization". It's not "Search Engine Optimization optimization".

    The thing with SEO is.. you need to keep trying. How long have you been working at it for?

    Keep adding content regularly and see what you can do about scoring some backlinks. How long has your site been out there? What keywords are you trying to rank for? Can visitors opt-in to be notified when new content is available?

    Site's been out for about a month and a half now. Not sure what the best way to offer new user's the option to be notified when new content is available? - Newsletter?

    This project isn't to just make money I want to run a successful site with big hit's each and every day. Ofcourse I do want to generate cash of-of it, however it's not my overall purpose.

    Put pic's with your watermark (like custom made PC case's etc, something popular) to sites like 9gag. You should try to run contest and maybe get partner (other site). But, hey man - unique content is king!

    Try building some links to some social media sites like facebook ,twitter ,Youtube and digg. And you can also try posting threads in some niche related forums with your link in the signature. SEO is a on going process , you need to keep building links constantly to actually see results.

    I use social media the most. Get hummingbird, add people that are following people in your related niche, and tweet your post. If tweet attacks was still out, I would suggest that.

    SEO is the only way for you.Keep trying and how long you have been working for it?

    By the way,if you really want to drive massive traffic to your site then submit your blog to directories and to the search engines in your niche,submit more content to article directories like Ezine , article base ,create a Facebook page for your blog to promote your blog and try to take advantage of free tools and plug-ins.

    You can use traffic exchange sites to boost your Alexa rank. Also with manual traffic exchange ( the ones with Captchas) are usually not botted. So sometimes you can get real visitors who decide to revisit every once in a while if the website looks good and has content
