Hi,

I just wanted your opinion about Free Classified Websites. Is it a good way to get traffic or not ?
Do you know some other great and free (or at least very cheap) ways to drive traffic to your service or product ?

Thanks.

    you can use classified activity if your business is local but my experience says that if your business is global then the search engine may be a concern this activity as a blackhat technique and may be punished you by the search engine.if you work is local level than you may get traffic from this activity.

    Some tips are:
    Tip #1: Organic Search Engine Rankings. There are only three search engines you need to worry about and those are Google, Yahoo, and MSN. Conquering top search engine rankings in the big three starts with good keyword research. When you know what search terms you want to target, it’s then a matter of tailoring your site to match what these search engines are looking for.

    Tip #2: Social Networks such as Myspace. This usually involves making multiple profiles and getting very social on the social network with other users. Automation software is often utilized to make mundane tasks such as sending friend requests, comments, and messages to other users much faster. You can also access members of groups who all have a shared interest in a certain subject.

    Tip #3: Free Classified Ad Sites. This is getting to be a very effective free traffic method, but you do need to go about it with some tact and creativity. Craig’s List is the king of free online classifieds, and a properly tailored campaign can harvest hundreds of targeted prospects per day. Software is very handy for managing larger campaigns.

    Tip #4: Video Hosting Sites. Anyone can harvest sales leads from video hosting sites these days. You can make a video using a digital camera or free screen recording software on your computer, or a combination of both. This is where the creative types will soar above the crowd.

    Tip #5: Forums. Message board forums exist on the internet for just about every topic imaginable. An advanced Google search using â€"message board forum” and your topic of interest will probably turn up several places where people discuss your subject. Join these forums, become active and helpful to others, then do subtle marketing through your signature (or even your user name).

      LOL. If you're going to steal a blog post and post it here at least read it first and check the year it was written.

      To answer the OPs question, it all depends on your product/service and customers. Without knowing the product or service, I would say that of your potential customers are looking for your product/service on classified sites then it makes sense to advertise there. If not, go where your customers are looking for you.

    People obviously do have success with classified ads. However, it depends on what you're advertising and which sites you use. I have posted thousands of ads on classified sites and never got one single result.


    The problem with classified ads is that you need to use sites that have specific categories in your niche, because you need targeted traffic. Advertising blindly will get no results.


    If you're looking for free advertising go make a short video and upload to Youtube. Youtube is every much a search engine as Google, and, as Youtube is owned by Google, if you optimise your video in the right way, it will also show up in the Google organic searches.


    Plenty of videos on Youtube to show you how to do all that.

Even you can use the Forum posting, Article submission, Relevant Blog commenting & so on. Thanks for your advance.

    They do work well. However, do not spam it with ads. I specifically recommend using Craigslist & Backpage for best results.
