Free online traffic can help you if you do not have a lot to spend on a new internet venture. There are plenty of ways you can achieve this if you have enough desire and are prepared to work for it.
It is a great feeling once you see free traffic coming to your site knowing that you have not had to spend any money to receive it – and you know that once you have found a source of free traffic, all you need to do is tap in to it again and again!
One of the best ways to receive a ton of good quality free traffic is to join online forums.
Once you have built up some credibility with other members on the forum, they will look out for any articles that you publish and you can have a link in your signature file that points to your own websites.
When you join a forum, you know that any traffic you receive from the forum will be highly targeted.
You can use the traffic in two main ways, to build up a list by offering people free reports from your website in return for them joining your mailing list, then you can send them offers of products you have for sale.
You can also use the link to send them directly to an offer you have on a website.
Another free method is to use ezines.
If you can write an article that you think people will be interested in, you can send it for free inclusion in ezine for your subject.
For example, you may have an angling website and found some baits that are helping you to catch nets full of fish.
If you have an attractive title such as: How To Catch A Ton Of Fish With This New Wonder Bait and an interesting article about it, there is a good chance it will be published by owners of angling ezines as they are always looking for articles that they think their readers will benefit from and it saves them from writing articles themselves.
Ezine owners will usually let you have a free link to your website at the end of the article and as some ezines have large circulations you can gain masses of free traffic from this method.
Writing articles and submitting them to article directories is one of my favourite methods of gaining traffic for no cost.
Your article stay in the directory for years with a link pointing to your website and you will have the potential to gain thousands of free visitors it.
You can also establish yourself as an expert in the field of your choice and gain credibility.
It is important to have a good headline to attract people to your article. If you write an article that will help people to overcome a particular problem or one that gives them tips they will want to look for other articles that you have published and visit your website.
One very successful method of gaining free traffic is to swap links with other sites in the same category as yours.
There are a variety of ways to do this. One of the best is to find websites that you would like a link from and contact the webmaster directly by emailing him offering a free link on your website.
You can also join free link exchange sites where you can submit your website and then other webmasters will contact you if they want to exchange links and you can also look for webmasters to exchange links with.
This can help you to build up a lot of back links over a period of a couple of months and help to improve your Google page rank as well as gain you a lot of free traffic.
Whatever method you use it is well worth putting some effort in because after a few weeks of using these free methods you should start to see a great improvement in the traffic coming to your website.
