    I honestly need an expert opinion on this because my sales seem to have been very low recently.


    My products are really good, however, the traffic has reduced drastically.


    My question is: How can I increase my traffic and market my software to gain more visitors?


    Things I have tried:


    1. Pad Submission.
    2. Press Release
    3. White/Blackhat SEO Optimization (Worked terribly)


    What do you guys think I can do to optimize my traffic? I pretty much gave up on trying to rank high for Google. I am sick of their BS. Now, I would like to try and gain traffic some other ways.

    I've paid for many Blackhat/Whitehat SEO service like Sherlock Hacks Google but the results were really bad.


    Please share what worked for you and what didn't.


    Thank you so much for the help.

    Do you offer a free trial?

    Is it specialised software or software for the general PC market?

    Send it to all the PC Magazines and websites. Tell them that they can offer the free and trial versions on their Cover Discs and download sections in return for a review.

    Also upload it to all the download sites:

    Launch an affiliate program and advertise it to affiliate marketers. Maybe open a thread in the Affiliate Programs section of this forum and other forums. Also consider trying out your product on Clickbank.
