What's The Best Fastest Free Traffic Strategies

42 replies
Hey Warriors,

I'm going to be doing paid and Free traffic but I was just wondering what's the best strategies you've used to get lots of Free traffic. How long did it take and how much traffic did you get.

I'm finding (please correct me if I'm wrong) that ppc is the fastest way to get paid traffic. So while I'm learning ppc without losing my shirt I'd like to use some ways to get traffic that do not take a long time.

Article marketing works but it seem to take quite a while to get a good amount of traffic.

Any information will be very helpful.

thanks much

    Hey Klinvie
    There are several methods to get targeted traffic for FREE but I would like to choose Article Marketing,Video Marketing and forum marketing.
    To optimize your Article Marketing efforts I would like to suggest that you use a tool called Turn any article to video with animation, music, graphics, and a full voice-over for just $1!
    They convert your articles into live,talking videos and submit them to more than 10 top video sites(including Youtube ,Metacafe and dailymotion).They have 14 day FREE trial so you can try them free for 2 weeks.
    I have found that with proper description and tagging,it is much easier to get your videos rank higher than the articles.

    Here I would like to share one of my sneaky trick with you:
    Find popular videos in your niche,create your videos(or convert your articles into videos) and make their title similar to the popular ones(Don't copy word by word).In that way your videos will be appearing just after that finishes and bring you tons of targeted traffic.
    I have used this trick on several of my videos and it always works.You don't need to do any SEO work.

    One more thing:Focus on building your own list than sending the traffic directly to the merchant.You can make much more in the back-end.
    Once you get your list a few hundred strong focus on getting Joint Venture partners and Joint Venture Adswaps.
    These two methods will bring you more subscribers than any paid method(Because personal recommendation carries much more weight) and this type of traffic is super targeted one.

    Article writing is quite good but then I may be biased. ;>))

    That said, many of the other methods mentioned in the thread are quite good as well.

    Hey thanks everyone for your help! This gives me a great idea on where to start. I'm so glad I came to this forum. If I had not I'll probably still be wondering I'm not getting traffic. Now I know!

    On the subject of Yahoo answers you have to expect your answer to get flagged. I have tried this method and even answered with a full answer and it was relevant as was my blog...then I pointed the asker to my blog....still got flagged

    Do you want fast traffic or quality targetted traffic?

    I posted a funny pic on my blog and I got a ton of traffic from StumbleUpon within hours and weeks later I get several hits a day from google to the pic.

    The trouble is that the pic has nothing to do with my blog and so all of the traffic that it generates is worthless. None of those visitors will come back, click on ads, or join my email list.

      that's happen with me too. they just come to download the pics and never comeback. I do what superaffiliate suggest and it works. Thanks pal.

      But, to make it more powerful, I do via blog comment, ppc, ping and article writing. It make it boost...

        Article marketing for long term traffic and higher ranking - provided you put out all unique content - not re-hash the same old tired articles.
        Check the free traffic system - see my sig for a free pdf on them.

        Good luck with your marketing.

    Lots of excellent answers already, so let me add this. Traffic is no good if it's not targeted, because what you really want is conversions -- buyers. Some people like to brag about how many visitors they get per day, I'd rather brag about how many sales I make per day. So whatever method you choose, be sure to do research like crazy so you get targeted traffic. Learning how to research for PPC will help you immensely.

    Fast and free, that is the question. You'll want make sure that your are planning out your traffic strategy by identifying high traffic keywords and focusing on them.

    Create a number of different videos based around the keywords.

    Then you can use Traffic Geyser, nope not free, but very effective, or you can use TubeMogul.com | In-Depth Tracking, Analytics for Online Video | Web Video Syndication kind of traffic geyser light.

    Half of the work is done in your preparation and planning.

    Make sure to stay consistent.

        How about writing 10 high quality articles on the topic your niche audience would be interested in, and post it ONLY on good content - HIGH traffic - sites!

        Now please understand, this will require a little work but if done right, you can easily expect 200 daily visitors to your site! At the minimum! And you can easily expect 350-750 daily! At the beginning! (of course if all articles get published close together)!

        The way it works is that you will have to write a really good detailed content. VERY GOOD Quality...You will need to do your keyword research as well, and select only keywords that get 30-50 daily searches.

        The keyword competition in quotes should be less than 50K.

        Once you are done with this task you need to actually write the articles. NOW, you have to remember we are going after quality content here! So if you are writing on faster metabolism, you give people the real details, real content, not just some fluff.

        In your article, you need to give full details and lots of useful data! You need to give them methods that work, POWERFUL, Something that will wow them!

        So take your time writing these articles. You may want to do just one per day... In the mean time, search for relevant forums and blogs where you can see there is high volume traffic. You know, many of the forum owners look for high quality content so if you can provide it, they will love you for it!

        In most cases it will be free, but some sites will charge you money to post on their blog with a link back to your site. BUT like I said, some will accept it for free, in exchange for you providing them with the quality content. Now the good news is, for the traffic you can get from posting a guest post, the fee is not high at all. This is optional but there are some forums that offer a service to do a sticky post for 100-200 bucks. Now sticky posts get lots of viewings.

        So moving on, once you find your high traffic forums and/or blogs, contact the owner. Say I have something your audience is interested in, but in return, I just need a link back from article to my site. (you may want to provide sample of work when contacting them) Some will refuse, and some will agree...Get 10 that agree, and publish your articles. You will get high quality link, you will get traffic for years to come!
