Why you need high quality traffic for your website?

High volume traffic is the life-blood of your website. And, there are many benefits of attracting high quality traffic to your site. A site without traffic has no value to Google and won't rank well. Without a good flow of traffic, noone would want to advertise on your site and then you would not be able to earn income via Adsense or other ad sources.

What is your best way to generate highest quality traffic?

Right on! I agree. Without any traffic, your site may as well not even be online! But there's all sorts of different types or kinds of traffic. Even some low quality traffic can have some value to it if you know how to use it effectively! But it can't even compare to high quality traffic (traffic that converts). Because at the end of the day, that's what it's all about isn't it, conversions. The bigger the conversion rate, the better the quality of that traffic is. If 90% of them are clicking on your ads or affiliate links, or buying your products or services, then that is seriously uber cool high quality traffic. But at the same time, traffic that converts fast can increase your CTR. It doesn't do much for your EPM because they aren't staying around long enough to click through to other posts/pages on your site and are exiting on your aff links/ads.

I would say that the best way to generate high quality traffic is through advertising on high quality sites that are related to your niche. That way, those visitors are going to be likely interested in the things, products, services etc that your site has and have a high conversion rate. But advertising usually costs money unless you are doing something for them in part-exchange for the ad(s). But in most cases those ads will cost you money to place them and then again at the end of the money to renew them. And then there's knowing what site to advertise on, whether they accept/allow advertising and how related that site is to yours and the quality of the traffic/visitors on that site.

Social media would be the next best way to generate high quality traffic for your site because you can get super lazer targeted visitors that way which are much much more likely to convert on your site into clicks, clients, sales and earnings for you. But that is another tutorial and learning curve in itself and isn't easy for everyone to get into and be a success with. Even if you have a Facebook Page, Twitter account, LinkedIn account, Pinterest account, WeHeartIT account, Tumblr etc etc etc and promote the life out of them. But consistency and dedication can really pay off in this area and they are free to use as well so once you have become fairly established on those places, provided you are growing those accounts all the time, engaging every day, adding new content to them all the time, it can pay off and result in what I would consider to be high quality traffic because its traffic that is already interested in your products, services or niche!

So low quality traffic - people not interested in your niche, products or services.
High quality traffic - people that are interested in your niche, products or services.

My best way to generate high quality traffic is through search engine optimisation. Over 70% of my traffic comes from Google so optimising rankings on search engines is my best method to generate traffic. On top of that, I hold referral and promotion competitions on my forum so my members will refer their friends and advertise my website on other places to win a price. This also my other method for generating traffic. Spreading the word can be very powerful and I find this method very effective although I get much more traffic from Google. I find that the traffic these methods produce is of very high quality.

A website without traffic is simply useless. There are various ways to get high quality traffic, including:
1. Make sure the site is SEO friendly.
2. Make sure that the content is updated regularly, and that the content is informative and valuable to visitors.
3. Make good use of social media as they can help a lot in getting more traffic.
4. Implements an online advertising campaign that will help you to attract quality traffic. Facebook ads seem to be offering great results at affordable prices to many businesses. Bing Ads and Google AdWords are renowned to help as well.

I think it's same with paying customers and non paying customers. You can have lot of non paying customers and not make money. And then you can have lot of paying customers but in low number. So that's one reason traffic has to be of some quality to make sense. You can see that some of the sites focus on targetting feature. And that is what has helped many sites to make some good money. So the targetting is what is required for the website to work properly there as well. That is what I have learned.

Traffic does not directly generate money for you. If you want to make money, your traffic needs to convert to leads (sign ups, subscriptions etc.), ad clicks or sales. You will earn money only when your traffic engazes on your site. Quality traffic means the traffic that has a great potential to convert. Quality traffic means visitors came to your site willingly (and not forced as in traffic exchange)

For me, it is the social media for getting traffic although I cannot say if it is high quality traffic. To define, high quality traffic are the legitimate visitors to your website, am I correct on this? Discounting the bots, there are the so called one-time visitors who are walk-ins, curious maybe. Some of them will come back for more but most of them will not. And for the legitimate visitors, more likely they will click on the related advertisements. Again, am I correct on this?

If you are getting clicks from your friends and family on your social media posts, the traffic might never convert. These people are clicking your links just because they want to help you, they may never click your ads or buy products from your pages. Having said that if you share valuable contents, you might get voluntarily clicks and these voluntarily clicks might convert well.
