Free Ways To Get Free Traffic To Your Website

Jul 2, 2008
Every now and then, I make a round of various online marketing related discussion boards and I am amazed at how much of the questions are about generating traffic to a website. Obviously, there are the classical ways of attracting visitors to a website such as pay per click advertising, but how can you attract visitors to your website for free? Well let me give you a couple of ways that you can do just that.

One of the best ways to get more traffic to your website for free is by submitting articles to relevant article directories. Articles are one of the best ways to promote a website because it implies that the person who visited your website actually read some of your material and was interested in reading more of it. Articles are also a great way to build back links to your site and improve its rating with search engines. Another great thing about articles is that they can be used by other webmaster in their ezines and/or sites and depending on the sites or ezines popularity, a single article can bring thousands of visitors to your site.

Another free way of getting more traffic to your website without spending money is by signing up for a social site account or with any other social networking site and start looking for people who would be potentially interested in your website. But you have to be careful not to sound too spammy in your interactions; members tend to despise people who go on social networking sites for commercial reasons only, so try to build meaningful relationships with members of various groups related to your niche before pitching anything to them.

Free classified ads services can be useful to promote your site, but make sure you list it in the right category. Subscribe to various discussion boards related to your niche and put a link to your site in your signature. If you provide meaningful comments on the board, I can guarantee that a lot of people will visit your site to see what more you have to say.

Great content is what usually drives visitors to a website, but what would you say if I told you that you can get your visitors to add content to your site for you? You can do that by adding a discussion board to your site or even an article directory. If you have a blog, write controversial posts to stir up conversation and encourage your visitors to add comments, and free content, to your website at the same time.

I could go on and on on how you can attract more visitors to your website, but if I was to give you only one piece of advice, it would be to sign up to a good internet marketing forum, they are populated by tons of experts who will be more than happy to show you even more ways to get more traffic to your website.
