What are some effective ways to get traffic from a targeted area?
The traffic for my webside (enukesoftware.com) is going down day by day. My traffic has been reduced by 2,000 visitors in two months and I have not changed the way I am doing my SEO at all. Should I change any of the activities I am doing? Should I start blogging on my own website, guest blogging, submitting articles to other sites, or blog commenting? What are your suggestions?
You should consider buying targeted website traffic. It can be spread out over the course of a few days or a month (depending on your settings), and can serve as a consistent source of daily visits. You can buy from freelancers on sites like SEOclerks, listingdock etc.
Read this carefully and follo0w that step to get result to get traffic
If i know what method you are following for SEO only, i can give the suggestion whether you have to change any of the activities you are doing. Anyway as u asked start blogging on your website, guest blogging, submitting articles to other sites, or blog commenting. Try to backlink to relevant websites and avoid using tools and do manual link building gradually.

I am sure you did black hat Seo. That's why Google hits your website and your traffic is decreasing day by day. Romove your irrelevent links. And start pure white hat Seo.
I would suggest making sure you are in all of the local business directories.
If you are trying to target a specific area make sure you are not reaching out too far on your website. Don't put other city names or places on the site. Just your location.
Put your phone # with the area code of your area on the home page and in the title as well.
Because of the fact that your hits dropped I would check the web for duplicate content. Make sure no one has stolen your text.
Compare your previous traffic report with the current one. Analyse and find where you lock and try to fix those problem. Also do your promotional activities equally on all off page factors. Keep track on your traffic as the work which you doing will give result properly. Do some analysis of what new trending in promoting as well as generating traffic and start work on that.
Hypertarget - by niche, by location and by product / service offering. Essentially, use the mothership website to create a suite of niche products with their own brand and web presence...all linking up to the parent site.
Yes - any website should have a blog built-in, and if it doesn't, the company really isn't considered a thought leader by Google.
Exception = Amazon, who publishes new products, services, and content daily.
The only equalizer for this type of site is to blog...infinitely shareable, freshness ranks with Google, and Google+ enables authorship connections for bloggers. Commenting is a no-go, but linking products, brands, partners and web properties is highly recommended, as is the mandate of blogging.

Absolutely start blogging. The more you blog, the more traffic you'll drive to your site. Promote the blog posts on the major social media networks.
Here's a video that explains how content marketing affects SEO:

With the ever changing algorithms and rules from Google, Bing and the like you should be creating more organic content and also using more than one channel of marketing in your mix for lead generation. One form of marketing that remains tried and true is direct mail...very targeted direct mail. Integrated with some strategic online marketing and your numbers could be back up. If online marketing is your main focus, maybe try using Similar Audience targeted PPC.
Hope this helps.
By targeted area, do you mean geographic area or industry area? In order to get a good answer, the question needs to be asked in a more specific manner.
I'm sure your traffic is being reduced because you have fairly serious on- and off-page optimization issues. Until you get your site to an acceptable level with those issues, it won't do much good to target areas - you will be wasting time and money.
@Dave has provided some good info to start, but as your profile states that you are an SEO expert, you should address basic SEO needs before moving onto higher-level questions.
Ok Dinesh, your question is in SEO so I'm not going to promote PPC geo-targeting. Also, you ask about a targeted area but you don't expand on that in your explanation and none of the other answers seem to have addressed this. So, local SEO, if it's your local area you wish to target (or one you're based in) then Google My Business is the way to go, especially since the brand new update looks to be reducing the effectiveness of local search SERPS in favour of directories and reviews. If you wish to target outside of your area but specific regions, then you could get a mailing address there and attack the same angle.
Also it would be good to get a local TLD as well as a server located in the vicinity which will at least contribute to your local SEO.
What's probably more important to figure out right now is why exactly you've lost the traffic so hit up Analytics and drill down the data to show organic, paid, referral and direct (these are your four base traffic types). Use relevant dates and compare to dates when things were going well. If it's paid traffic that's dropped, invest more. If your direct traffic has dropped, not much you can do. The other two factors you can address though.
Organic traffic - Hit up Webmaster Tools and compare your ranking reports, have you lost significant rankings on high traffic keywords? Optimise your pages for traffic and conversions. If you haven't lost rankings, are your searches seasonal? Are people just not clicking anymore even though you're positioned roughly the same? That's usually an indication of bad press so check out reviews. \For what it's worth, your reviews could be better, but they are not bad at all, you need numbers though. You've got 4 Google reviews up to now and when you get 5, your star rating will appear.
If you're losing referral traffic, then find out where you're losing it from. Back to Analytics and go to Acquisition > All Referral. This will list your referral links people are using. Again, compare them to past data and see which has dropped. It could very well be a spider like Semalt. It's entirely possible that a link you received a lot of traffic from is not receiving a lot less exposure so you've got to regain that exposure. It could be that it was originally in a prominent position that's now changed. Rebuild it if it's referral traffic you've lost.
Has your search ranking dropped, or just traffic?
Is business dropping along with traffic?
Where is your traffic coming from?
Getting the right traffic, those in your target market, is more important then getting large amounts of traffic. If your search ranking is dropping, that is a better reason to be concerned as you need to be found by your target market.
T o answer your question... a fast and effective way to get traffic from targeted areas is with video marketing. It can be targeted to any area you want and is the fastest way to get high search rankings in areas you want to target.
I agree with Daniel. Start by taking a look at what your competitors are doing. For example, if they're guest posting on a certain website, see if you can get something published on that website, too.
Forget about the blog commenting. It's a waste of time. After all, when's the last time YOU clicked on the link of some random commenter?
As for starting your own blog, that's up to you. Are you willing to put the time into it? Are you prepared to publish new posts on a schedule? (After all, readers are going to get accustomed to seeing new posts. If you can't keep up a regular schedule, you may look flaky. Or, worse, your site may look outdated!)
I would definitely start guest blogging. That way, you can go where your target audience is. Figure out which sites in your niche are LEGITIMATE authorities, and see if they take guest posts. Not only is that a great way to increase your exposure, it's a way to drive traffic that doesn't depend on you being at the top of Google's results.
You should check your back links you may have a few sites that are linking to you that are spammy.
I would also encourage content marketing but only if you are willing to commit the time and energy into the process.
Your linking profile shows 100k backlinks from less than 100 unique URL. There may not be official penalties, but I'm sure that's not helping.
Also, what are your competitors doing? Are they the ones gaining or are you simply slipping?
Well, are you recently hit by Google update ? First of all I would suggest log yourself over the Google webmaster tool and see if there is any message from the Google over the Manual action page. And more think I would like to share with you over here is recently Google has updated the its algorithm i.e the update is named as Pigeon which was targeted a local search engine results. So, I'd say better to study that out who knows the Pigeon update may have been affecting the traffic from the targeted area. And yes if its possible can you show me how you are blog commenting ? I am getting a feel that you are blog comments looks more spammy. I don't remember where I have seen your link but yes I have seen the link dropped over the blog just because the SEO want to see their link . I would advise you to start performing a backlink cleanup as it may be the culprit affecting your traffic. Anyway all the best. :)
Advertising is continue ham ring ,ones you reduce the adv activity it damage a lot ,what you do make a list what type of adv you use than according to that list start aggressive marketing,
