    Hi everybody,

    I'm running a Fail Pictures website but I want to have more traffic. I have currently 2000 to 5000 UV per day and I'm sure I can reach a higher traffic. I just need some fresh ideas for promotion or any suggestion you can have. My website is Youhavefailed dot com. It's a french website.

    Awaiting for you reply,

    Thank you [​IMG]

    You're already doing very good. Try pinterest or instagram. Do you have a facebook fan page? If not, make one of them and post the pictures there. Once you do that, people can start sharing them and liking them and your page will start to grow organically.

    Since most of your content is of graphics, you should use the social traffic like fb, twitter, su. Stumbleupon is a good traffic generator for sites like this and it's really viral.

    Where does most of your traffic come from now?

    I can't believe you are getting that much traffic but getting like zero interaction on your posts.. no likes, tweets, shares, +1s with all that traffic?

    My traffic is comming from Facebook, Tumblr and Google. My website was hosted on tumblr but now since less than a month I moved it to a self hosted wordpress blog. This is why there ie not much interaction because by doing that i have lost all facebook comment and all sare/like because permalinks on tumblr and Worpress are differents !

    Sometimes it happens that you get traffic from Facebook and twitter. But, I recommend you to create best content that may attract users to the site and it is a superb technique that favors the owner of site and relevant keywords also help in building traffic.

    Pinterest - since all your content is images - this is by far and away best traffic source.

    Great job. You are really getting good traffic. I would have suggested you Facebook, but you are getting very good traffic form Facebook. I think it's time to get the most out of Pinterest.

    Stumbleupon is a good choice since more and more people are getting hooked to the said site.

    Rely on content, make informative posts rather than weaving it on keyword. This will help you long run

    I suggest Face book adverting is most effective for getting targeting UV.or else Adwords is nice to have organic UV.

    Well, I was going to suggest using a more targeted social media approach, but it looks like people have already suggested this. There is a way to boost your social media traffic...saw this post the other day

    Good luck

    The best method would be to create a community based on your website. Engage the audience somehow, make them feel involved with your website. Popularity should surely grow if it is implemented.

    If you need to get more traffic to your site then you can work on various Off-Page Optimization SEO Techniques like Directory/Deep Link Submissions, Article Submissions and Blog Commenting. You can also share information about your site on various social networking sites like Facebook or Twitter which is known as SMO or Social Media Optimization. Then you can also go for Social Media Marketing (SMM) of your site on Social Media Sites like YouTube where you can upload videos of your site or uploading pictures of your site on Flickr.
