Make sure your site is updated on a regular basis. If your site has a blog it's likely you are already doing this. On the other hand, you shouldn't overlook the content on the rest of your site either and make sure it's being updated regularly. The more often you update your websites, the more often they will be crawled by the search engine spiders.

Build external links. Lots of internet marketers concentrate so much of their effort on getting inbound links from authority sites that they forget to build links to other sites from their own, especially when they are new. Remember, outgoing links are just as critical as incoming ones. Actually, one of the most effective ways to garner the attention of the sites you are trying to get links from is to send them a link first. They might decide to link to your site too once they've had a look around your site after receiving the trackback. The search engine spiders look for outgoing links. It's highly unlikely your site will be ranked well if all you have are inbound links.

This way you can generate more traffic and if you know what you are doing you can convert this traffic into more sales. These tips are just the tip of the iceberg. With a little bit of research you'll turn over plenty more.
