Favorite Free Traffic Methods?

134 replies
Hey Guys,

I was just wondering what you guys rank as your FAVORITE FREE TRAFFIC METHOD? (or methods).

I know that there really is no such thing as "free traffic" before anyone says that, but I assume you know what I mean!

Mine would have to be either YouTube videos with annotations or else slideshare (PDFs not slideshows).

Looking forward to hearing back from you,
@BetaMartie

    YouTube can be very powerful for affiliate marketing one of my favorites too. Great because once its setup and going it can almost be autopilot. Blogging and forums can also be a great source.

    A good method to get traffic and increase your SEO is through blogging. Creating unique and quality content adds links to your site. To do that is important to have a keyword strategy, targeting the right words, and also to create a SEO friendly blog structure.

    Find And Pull Method

    This is perhaps one of the easiest ways to bring traffic to your blog. All you have to do is find popular blogs in your niche and bring the already existing traffic back to your blog.

    Sounds easy right? Well if you know how, it kind of is.

    For this method to work, you need to find out about relevant posts on high traffic blogs in your niche as soon as they are published.

    You can solve this problem using Google Alerts, which is a free Google service that sends you emails on new content across the web that may be of interest to you.

    Set up Google Alerts so that it sends you an email as soon as a popular blogger writes an article very closely related to a post you have previously published ,

    For the second step go to the post as soon as it is published, actually read it, and write out a relevant and helpful comment after the post but instead of linking your name to your blog’s homepage, link to your post on related content.

    This way when they click through, they are immediately on a highly relevant page that they are interested in. And because they read your comment, which was useful and unique, they already think of you as an authority.

        Depends on what works for your target maket but you can see it as two types:

        1. Essentially effortless: like social media, SEO, forums, etc.

        and

        2. Effort needed: like articles, blog, guest posts and our favorite method that we recommend in our newsletter which is guest appearances on podcasts and radio shows where your target market is, as long as you are able to communicate the idea you will get some high quality traffic.

  • My favorite method of getting free traffic is blogging. From my experience it converts the highest into actual sales. Converts low to leads, but as far as sales it's phenomenal!

    I also like Youtube. Again it's content marketing so it converts well too. I don't focus on SEO with my Youtube videos though. I just find awesome low hanging fruit keywords with Youtube.

    Great question!

    I think that definitely Youtube (2nd largest searched site on the planet) as well as Forum marketing (the stuff that half of the people posting here do) are probably the best forms of FREE traffic!

    Facebook can work as well if you want to invest the time…simply join some groups for your niche, friend request some of the people in the group and start building a relationship with them. You can know for sure that they're interested in your niche as they were in the niche group!

    I hope that helps and good luck

    How do you utilize Reddit for traffic? I have a blog that is a few years old and I have a lot of posts, but it does not get traffic. I tried Facebook and had no luck with free traffic generation, and I have the most luck with Twitter so far, very active with twitter. Can you recommend a source to learn how to get Reddit traffic, this is new to me.

    My favorite free traffic: SEO

    Why: To start with could be very helpful, you need some basic knowledge and start working right away to create backlinks, optimize your content but if you do it properly you can start making decent traffic towards your website.

    Then you can expand your business adding social networks and some other good techniques, but if you go directly to social networks it can be difficult to start.

    You can have targeted traffic from social networks, but the most targeted traffic comes from SEO, because those users are searching for something probably a solution, and if they find you through a search engine, they want your content very badly.

    Well, at least from my experience, maybe someone else have a different story.

    I also agree that Pinterest is a good trafic source - I have pics I put up 2 or 3 years ago that still send me new visitors today.
    Social media is preferred - YouTube is the gift that just keeps giving, Instagram can be worked in the same way as Twitter but needs constant attention - same as Facebook, but they're all good.

    Facebook ads are very cost effective if and when you're ready to spend some money...

      Another party I run into will say that it is really useless traffic and has been for years.

      I started doing it a few years back and just had no passion for it.

      I'm sure if you build up a huge following it could be.

      For some of us, article submission has worked extremely well over the years, and even more so since Google released the animals.

      Content which targets and engages real live eyeballs is what drives real convertible traffic.

      This basic marketing "secret" actually has not really changed much over centuries.

    Personally, i have tried many channels and mediums to drive a so called Free Traffic to my blogs, and finally i released that the most effective ways to get Free Traffic is Social Media, of course after SEO implementation. I will recommended the following source to get Free Traffic for blogs and websites instantly, but like i said it will divert traffic for a temporary period.

    -Reddit
    -StumbleUpon
    -Google + Communities
    -Facebook Pages
    -Facebook Groups
    -Twitter

      My own blog content and forum posting has certainly done the job in the past!

      Saying that I tried something a bit new (for me anyway!) last year and helped the wife market some of her 'Adult Coloring Books' via the Facebook groups.

      We were blown away by the traffic these groups produced. Done right, you've got a ready made target audience who can quite quickly be eating out of the palm of your hand.

      I'm going to revisit Facebook for traffic again quite soon.

      Cheers

    I agree with blogging, however the issue then becomes finding and generating traffic to your blog. This is when Social Media really comes in to play. The trick is to narrow down your best and most used social media sites and use those to your benefit. I know blogging can be easy but sometimes tricky, at least if you want to add value and provide wicked content. But I did it.

    I believe the thing about traffic(free or paid) is learning all you can about using your source of choice. All of these sources work if applied correctly. When you decide on which traffic source to use ,stick with it and educate yourself on how to properly use it. If your going to start using twitter for traffic,dont think that after 3-5 days of using it and your not seeing hundreds of followers, that it doesnt work, everything takes time.And that goes for most free traffic sources.

    social media. it's a great way to send traffic to test pages/offers.

    if you really enjoy your niche, it's easy to forget that you're actually working!

    * can take a lot of time and effort to get to a stage where a single post can lead to meaningful test results.
    again, when you like the niche - this isn't a problem.

    1. Start blogging. Join several sites where you comment on the blog posts. Add your URL with posting. Keep in mind you are commenting on your posts so remain focused on the topic since you do not want your posting to be deleted or considered as spam. You want to appear knowledgeable and someone others can trust.

    2. Use forum signatures for promotion of your site with a live link. Use topics with great information and link them back to your sties. The more information you provide the readers the more they will rely on you for your new information. They will return repeatedly to read what you are posting.
