Ad clicker software is not a magic bullet to boost clickthroughs, experts say.
While it’s a great way to boost the clickthrough rate, it’s not a panacea, experts said.
“This software does not guarantee your site clicks, and it is not an absolute answer,” said David Zolna, author of the The Top 10 Ad click software and founder of Clickbot, a click-countering software.
“It will only make your site click faster if you do the right things.”
Here are a few tips to keep in mind if you need a clicker to boost your site visit rates: Don’t rely on click-through rates for a quick boost.
“If you’re just starting out, a simple click-to-sign-in to your landing page is a great place to start,” said Zolns.
“But if you’re a long-time user of your site, or your site has a lot of organic traffic, it may not be worth the extra cost.”
If you want to boost a site’s overall clickthrough, Zolnas suggested you do a few things: Use a click counter for your landing pages.
Use a similar counter for every page on your site.
Don,t forget to check the statistics of your ad clicker program.
Use automated scripts to keep track of your clicks.
You should also try and optimize your site with one or more of these: Add a banner or other banner type that tells visitors about your business or site.
Increase your bounce rate.
Put some ads on your landing site, but leave them at least a couple of clicks away from your landing.
Consider adding a “show me more” button to your website to let visitors know more about your site or business.
Have a blog, newsletter, or other informational page that helps you and your audience stay in touch.
Keep the website’s name short and simple.
If possible, don’t use a domain name, such as www.huffingtonpost.com.
Write about your work and company on a blog or in a newsletter.
Create an email list to let people know about your website.
Check out the top online marketing sites to learn about what other visitors to your site are looking for.
Start your own blog and help others find it.
Add your website and blog name to Google’s search results.

When you have an ad clickers program, do not use it to promote your products or services.
