How can I get traffic for my website that serves information?

Hi, I have made a web app. It serves information like pincode details, hospitals, blood bank details only for India.
People don’t need to visit such website every day. So what are some of the ways to generate traffic for a website like mine ?
Please have a look at the website and answer according to my website.
SEO is always the first option. What can be some other options?
Thanks for you help in advance.

Just for starters I would recommend social media websites such as facebook, instagram, and Linkedin as it is a business type of website. Finding ways to rank in SEO is an important long term strategy as well. Classified ads, paid advertising are examples as well.

If you are serious about this as a long term business, start building a brand on these areas, instagram might not be as targeted for your niche, but keep in mind there are social sites DESIGNED for technology.

Also treat it as any other online marketer would, find the websites and forums targeted to your niche which seems to be pretty in demand, as well as using advertising methods to reach the Hospitals and targeted institutions, These are just some ideas to help.

Hi, thanks a lot for the reply. It really helped. I have started sharing on Facebook.
Can you please have a look at my website and suggest me a bit more ways ?
here is the link <snip>
Maybe looking at it will you give some more ideas.
Also, can you please tell me one more thing?
The website is only 2 weeks old. I have also done a bit of SEO. How long should I wait to see the SEO effect to kick in?
Thanks in advance.

I’ve removed the link from your post, @koushik72, because it is not necessary in order to answer your questions.

If you are new to SEO, I would recommend that you read Google’s “Search Engine Optimization Starter Guide”, which will help you check that you’ve done all the necessary tasks correctly.

If you look around the Marketing section of the forums, you’ll find we have a number of threads discussing ways to gain traffic. You might get some more ideas by reading these. For example:

How to Improve Website Traffic?

Increasing traffic and ranking

Well, As you know getting traffic from the search engines is possible in two ways:

  1. SEO
  2. Paid marketing

If you want to go for SEO you have to either hire an SEO expert who can make relevant keyword research based on your web app and works on it get higher ranking on search engines to drive traffic. Which is ofcourse a long term process.

If you want quick results you can go for paid marketing over different channels like Google Adwords, Facebook or any other platform, it certainly needs some investment from you.

The other method to get the traffic is through social media, You have to promote your app on social media so that people can view it and use your app.

I’d have to disagree with that. It’s perfectly possible to do SEO yourself. Google even has an article to help you decide whether or not you need to hire somebody.

Definately, its possible that you can do the SEO yourself, But you have to spend a lot of time for that. I don’t think as a Business owner you have that much of time to spend for leaning and implementing SEO. Apart from that there are several things to do for a business owner. So, The best option is to hire a Consultant so that you can get your job done easily.
