    SEO nowadays is not free anymore though, as to get decent rankings you will either need to spend loads of time, use some software or hire someone on fiverr to do it. Esp after Penguin.

    But youtube would be my idea.

    The best free traffic would be from youtube as it's easier for ranking purposes as there are not so many restrictions as trying to do the SEO Google dance. Im at the moment changing my article list to youtube videos for better ranking and free traffic.

      Do Not Use SenukeX. You will be making thousands of backlinks and only ten to fifteen gets indexed in google. It is a black hat technology and all the money and effort can become waste, if google simply changes and develops smarter algorithm. Google aims to put an end to link farms and low quality content and SenukeX is something that tries to trick google. It will not work for you in the long run and it is too darn expensive.

      Cheap link building like from fiverr will get you backlinks for sure. But they will be so low quality that your site will get sandboxed by google. In google's eyes the quality of your site is determined by the quality of the sites pointing to your own site.

      Use only White Hat Strategies for Link Building. You will be saving time, money and you will also be saving your site from getting penalized by updates like penguin and panda.

      When you use bought software do we consider that free, most do, I used too, but I take it into account now. Nothing is free really. Not even forum posting, someone has to pay the internet bills and electricity.

      Yeah going a little overboard, but just got a call from a telemarketer saying if I buy something I get something free, told him I did not want to buy and to send me the free item, he hung up on me, he is not a very good telemarketer lol.

    Many people think that having a good website is all you need to get tons of visitors. Wrong answer. Getting traffic to your site takes hard work and diligence and is not accomplished overnight. Think about it this way - how are people supposed to know where to find your site if you don't tell them? You must advertise.

      ...and more so I'd say that you can buy traffic cheaply - all sorts of offers out there for thousands of visitors for only a few dollars. But if none of them convert, either because its fraud traffic or simply poorly targeted you'd have got more out of it spending your money on a cup of coffee instead! You'd have some number of customers but at least you'd have had something to drink.

      what i'm trying to say is getting quality, targeted visitors takes hard work and time. And if someone promises something that looks too good to be true - "cheap good converting traffic" - it probably is!

      Make sure you run any traffic buy through a traffic auditing tool!

    If you have a lot more time than money then work on these 4 traffic sources and you will see results

    submit articles - you cant just submit a few you need to get really serious and start submitting at least 1 article each and every day as a bare minimum. Link to a squeeze page and build your list

    Start a blog - If you have time then create a blog and create content for your blog. Don`t get too hung up on your blog though as its something which will be built over time but post regular and in time it will start to attract plenty of free traffic

    Forums - forums will help you to attract plenty of free traffic as log as you are active and provide plenty of helpful info

    Videos - creating maybe 1 video every couple of days will help to builf your free traffic and you can even distribute your videos using tools so you get even more exposure and traffic

    Using these 4 traffic methods will get you results

    Ok there not groundbreaking but they work and if you link all of your social accounts with your youtube channel, article account and blog then all of your content will get shared on all social platforms as long as you have set up your social accounts ie twitter, fb, goog+1

    Free traffic methods do take time but once you get going and build momentum it gets much easier and some steady traffic will start to flow

    For getting targeted traffic, social media like facebook works, if you can use that properly. Solo ad is also a good way to attract targeted traffic. Moreover, you can keep good contribution to different forum and blog, those will give you a good amount of traffic.

    Facebook, Facebook, Facebook.

    It's turning into my #1 form of traffic for everything that I've been doing.

    Here's a quick guide on how to get started.

    1. Find a Niche (use Facebook advertising to see what markets have audiences)
    2. Create a Page (use a name that is likeable, something that will get people to like it)
    3. Share photos, status's, and polls regularly or even schedule out things.
    4. Communicate on other large pages, don't spam them with your link, just be apart of them.
    5. Aim at getting people to like your page, give them a reason.
    6. If you have to, pay for advertising, first time advertisers get a $50 coupon on Facebook Marketing I believe.

    And then direct those fans to your website

      Yes, Facebook is a great source of traffic if you can use that properly. You can easily get your targeted people there and can stay in touch with them to get their feedback and share new promotion. People are becoming successful using Facebook with good strategy.

    Blog commenting generates a lot of quality traffic if you can dedicate you time to doing that. But you will need to be careful not to spam blogger. Example: you don't just go there a comment on an article or post you never read by writing something like "great post" and disappear.
    Even if the webmaster ends up publishing your post, people who read it will never come to your site because they believe you will never provide any value.
    You also use the same strategy in forum marketing.

    The point is: if you provide value in your comments, people will always want to know you more. They will follow your link to see what more benefits or value they could get from you.

    The main and proven way of getting free traffic and making money in any online business is to provide value. Without providing value, who will give you their hard earned money??

    Article marketing works with the same principle. Write quality and informative articles, submit them to as many article directories as you can and you will see great and quality traffic in the shortest possible time to your sites.

      Unfortunately, I don't think there is any free or cheap traffic. It's either spending time or money for it and lately, I've found that my time is more valuable than ever. I use a whole suite of traffic driving tools to help me get ranked and drive traffic to my site using tools from webfire.com (not a promotion, but just what I use).

      The right tools save me a lot of time and help me have the time to do article marketing, video marketing, blog commenting and what I've found really effective is answering questions on Yahoo and wiki answers.

      But...just a lot of traffic isn't going to make you any sales. You need to drive targeted traffic and even though you have an affiliate site, capture those visitors on a prospect list instead of just letting them click right through to an affiliate site.

      Of I wish traffic could be cheap and quick...lol...but hang in there and keep at it will come.

        I agree. How will you hone your sales skills without some real world performance data?

        On the subject of traffic, follow your heart. I tend to get more traffic naturally when posting on subjects which interest me greatly. Perhaps the passion comes out in my writing? I'm not necessarily monetizing all of the traffic I generate (though something can be said for the equitable value of building any new relationships). Traffic shouldn't always be about money if you're doing it right (blasphemy, I know!).

  • I am surprised no one mentioned this yet...

    You can get 'free traffic' from mobile applications! Yes there is a cost in getting this started, but once you get it going you can tap into an unlimited amount of niches and upwards of 100K targeted traffic a month to all of your different offers.

    IE: I have an app on the android market that relates to acne relief tips, this app links to my mobilized site where I capture hundreds of e-mails and promote my 'non-mobile' site and 'health-products' to all the visitors who make it through the funnel.

    Can you think of an easier way to generate thousands of free traffic in a competitive niche? Well, a viral YT video, a viral Facebook page/comment/status, anything viral in the social realm.. But this method doesn't rely on random triggers that cause something to go viral, its just a step by step process that will most likely always provide heaps of traffic.

    Check out my free e-book for more info on this strategy.

    You need a good overall off-site SEO strategy, which creates a very wide variety of different types of backlinks (some of which will bring direct traffic too). There's plenty of good info on this forum about doing that, but beware because there is also a lot of bad information, that will tell you to build only one type of backlink, or get vast quantities of low quality backlinks etc.

        Internet is about FREE and you can get FREE traffic also, if you know how to get it. These are some of the things I follow -
        1) Facebook - Avoid any paid ads. Create a facebook page for your website and set up an app that can automatically post updates from your blog or, website. Spend about 30 minutes a day to find friends, update status and like other relevant facebook pages.
        2) Pinterest - The biggest thing these days. Spend about 30-45 minutes thrice a week to add pins, follow other pinners, SEO your profile, boards and pins, and repin other good pins.
        3) Guest blogging - Spend an hour thrice a week writing blog posts as guest authors to high traffic, high PR blogs. This will help you in rank building and also generating a lot of traffic.
        4) Video Marketing - Create about 2 videos per week on good topics and post them to YouTube with long tail keywords in the title and link back to your website in the description.

        I avoid the following -
        1). Blog Commenting - It requires a lot of effort with extremely low returns. You can do this only on Do-Follow comments.
        2). Article Marketing - Too low returns and with the latest Google Updates, articles have fallen off ranks and from SERPs.

          well if its targeted traffic and cheap the best one's are forum marketing and guest blogging something des lau talked about earlier ...

          if you wish to take it further and up a step then ads, google, facebook, etc then you are being more targeted traffic/customers.

    ..you say you want free/cheap targeted traffic

    IMO, depending on what niche you are in, forum marketing and guest blogging would probably fit the bill.

    Both strategies are super targeted and with a combination of email signatures, banner ads on those forums and quality posts with a guest post, you should be getting some decent traffic to your offer.

    In my opinion the best way to get quality "Free" traffic is creating your own linkedin group. Doing this properly will get you targeted leads to visit your site/affiliate sites and you can email them on a weekly basis. It's a strategy not a lot of IMers talk about, but it's probably the best secret out there. Enjoy!

    Social media is the best way to get free traffic right away to your blog or site. Some of the social media platforms I succeed with in traffic every day are:

    -Facebook
    -Twitter
    -StumbleUpon
    -Reddit
    -Digg
    -Delicious
    -Pinterest

    Recently I have found a great way to manipulate social media traffic through keyword generation and SEO techniques. More on that in a blog post I call You Verses the Giants of Social Media, the most interesting part of this post is the ebook at the end that really shows you how to get thousands of visitors per day from social media.

    Really, you don't need to know tricks or hints. Just having a social media presence like Google+ is powerful too. Updating regular will help you with getting traffic. But if you want fast traffic, I recommend the ebook. It pretty good!

    One other tip is, you can create a StumbleUpon account and Stumble all of your posts and articles on your site and watch your traffic go through the roof immediately.

    I depends on a few different factors the age of your website, how hard you are prepared to work or how deep your pockets are.

    If you have a new website take your time write or curate quality content and the share it with all the social media networks and web 2 sites.

    If your website is a bit older you could buy links but beware as you could do more harm than good.

    The last option is to outsource your link building to a reputable seo company - this is where the deep pockets are needed.

  • I have been getting tons of great traffic with JV's I find it the best. It's hard to explain it to the JV partner but once they understand how it's free, quality and you not only get traffic and optin but paid to get it, then they want to do it. Plus it's the only traffic you will ever need and it's not only free but supper easy to do once you understand the concept.

    One more benefit is that less then 0.1% will ever do it the reason I know is it's been almost a decade and most people will never do it so you will have no competition for that traffic.

    Just my 2 cents

    SEO is no good for those of us looking to get fast result. Like newbie affiliates.

    Solo ads: Get your offer or squeeze page sent to someone's list for a small fee.

    Forums: There are more than the warrior forum and they work the same way. You must have a sig that is attractive and you MUST post USEFUL comments to see any real result.

    Youtube: This one is tricky as there are many ways to get your videos ranked quickly.

    Guest blogging: simple! Head over to a high ranking blog in your niche and start posting comments everyday. Again they must be of value to the people reading it or.... again you will get nothing.

    Also we could do a featured article on your website or product that will definitely help bring in traffic.

    Search Engine Optimization (SEO) - Don't cringe away from this one. Search Engine Optimization is NOT that hard, but it needs time and is well worth it. All you need is a blog and about 30mins a day for some good keyword optimized copywriting. You can easily rank in a few weeks for long tail (3-4 words long) keywords with none to a few backlinks.

    Twitter. I was a huge Twitter skeptic BUT how wrong I was! You can generate A LOT of free traffic with Twitter. You just need to know how. Once you write a blog post you can tweet about it and others looking for related information will find you. You want to target your "audience" so if you use keywords like "work from home," "start a home business" etc., you can get targeted traffic to your blog.

    Article Marketing. Almost all online marketers use article marketing to get thousands of visits. Write an article a day and submit it to literally hundreds of article directories. When interested people read these articles they see you as an "expert" in this field. They start to TRUST you and you WANT that. You get direct free traffic to your blog or site and these also serve as backlinks so you get more SEO value at the same time. It is really a win-win for you from all angles.
    There are hundreds of ways to generate free traffic. My only advice is to please go ahead and TRY THEM. Start with one and move one. I know it's really easy to get overwhelmed but do it anyway. You learn for sure, only by doing.

    If you want free/cheap traffic, the best you can do is to find keywords with very little competition, but that have a good amount of searches and have economic potential.

    Then you can do anything with this keyword and rank pretty fast.

    You can create a website about it, you can create a blog post about it, you can create a YouTube video about it, or even you can create a press release about it.

    Then build some backlinks to it until it gets ranked!

        Syndicated article & video marketing is the best thing that you can do to get traffic until you are able to invest in a technology (Webfire, Revisitor) or AdWords-type solution. One of the greatest advantages of this marketing method is that you don't need to invest any money while you may actually get paid for the article and video submissions! Other good solutions, especially if you don't enjoy writing or making videos or aren't that good at it (and don't want to resort to hiring ghost writers and content producers), include:

        *Blogging/"Lensing" (I don't regard these media as requiring the same toolbox as syndicated article writing)
        *Networking at big and relevant forums such as The War Room
        *Making use of Pinterest
        *Utilizing the offline marketing technique of sending out direct mailers (although keep in mind that while relatively cheap this inevitably costs you money)

        I hope these suggestions help you on your War Path to mad money.

    Here are Tens Ways to Increase Traffic Using Social Media.

    1. Use Social Media Networks – Posting quality content to the top social media sites should be the first step towards increasing traffic to a website. People use these social networks to connect with people of similar interests.
    Top Social Media Networks
    1. Facebook – 750,000,000 Estimated Unique Monthly Visitors
    2. Twitter: 250,000,000 Estimated Unique Monthly Visitors; a microblogging platform.
    3. LinkedIn: 110,000,000 Estimated Unique Monthly Visitors; world’s largest professional network.
    4. MySpace: 70,500,000 Estimated Unique Monthly Visitors – formerly held the number one spot before being overtaken by Facebook.
    5 Google Plus+: 65,000,000 Estimated Unique Monthly Visitors; social network site that utilizes groups that you can send content, pictures and movies to.
    Read more at…Top 15 Most Popular Social Networking Sites | July 2012

    2. Launch A Blog – start blogging by sharing interesting, valuable and important content. For example, AffiliateBuys.com is an affiliate blog that provides new, products and reviews for online affiliates.
    Write good content as much as possible to increase website traffic. Write an article a day for the first thirty days then you can reduce it to two or three articles per week. Blogging should be one of your top priorities.



    3. Use Press Releases – this is a a powerful method to get word out on your business, news stories, events, etc. Use online press release distributors to promote you press release to search engines, social media networks, news outlets, websites, blogs, RSS feeds, etc.
    • Press Release Distributors:
    1888PressRelease.com – paid and free service offering a variety of options.
    PRWeb – paid service that charges per article.
    The Open Press – a quality free press release portal.
    PR Newswire – global leader in news and information distribution services for professional communicators.
    SBWire – affordable media services for small to medium-sized businesses.
    Media Syndicate – free press release and newswire posting website that enables small and medium sized businesses to get information out to the general public quickly.
    i-Newswire – free and paid service that will allow you to submit press releases to a global audience.
    In order to get the best results only use one of the press release portals. Visit the various sites to determine which one best suits your needs.

    4. Social Profiles – this is where users tell the world who they are, what interests they have. One of the most important parts of creating a profile in your online website is to include a picture of yourself.
    Whether you are a small business or large firm that utilizes an online business, use social media to enhance your branding. It ‘s crucial to use the same digital image across your company website and other social networks.
    I believe it is much easier to become popular on social media sites if you use a personal photo. Also include other information about yourself including hobbies, interests and likes. This will help you take advantage of the most important aspect of social media networking which is developing relationships.

    5. Interact Online With Others – be sure to leave comments on other blogs, websites and social media networks. Participate with others by giving useful comments that relate to the content provided. Don’t post irrelevant or generalized comments that may be viewed as spam.
    An example of this are Tweets. Twitter is commonly used by sport athletes and celebrities who post tweets to their target audience. Get involved with others and retweet their messages you find of value.
    Establishing friendships is what social media is all about. There is no better way of doing this than by sharing likes, links, contents with others. Watch your website traffic improve when done consistently over a period of time.

    6. Broadcast YouTube Videos – In case you already don’t know, YouTube is the 800 pound gorilla of the video world. Popular videos include movie-trailers, product reviews, humor skits, and how-to videos.
    Last time I checked, YouTube was the second largest search engine. Another thing to keep in mind, it’s a lot easier to rank for YouTube than it is a webpage. The conversion ratios also tend to be much higher because of the visual effects.

    7. Use Triberr – an effective content distributing platform organized around a theme of “tribes.” It ‘s ideally suited for bloggers already active with other social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and StumbleUpon.

    Triberr helps bloggers become more successful through three concepts:
    • Content Distribution
    • Content Generation
    • Engagement
    Membership of a tribe is only by invitation only. However you can create any number of your own groups and invite other bloggers to join.
    Read more…Triberr.com.

    8. Join Forums – become members of forums targeting your topic or niche. Online forums are a great way to interact with people. Help people out by giving informative advice on your topic of knowledge. This will help you and your website gain authority status. In return your search engine rankings will increase, improving website traffic. One way to find forums is to enter your topic and add “+forums” into your Google search.

    9. Create Social Groups – increase website traffic even more by creating groups and discussions on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. These are generally the most popular social media sites so the more people you can get to join the more positive of an impact it will have on your website.

    10. Use Compelling Headlines – I’ve seen too many instances where well written content have boring headlines. Craft headlines to get the attention of readers in your social media circles. Here are some other important tips to get your articles read now.


    Hope this helps, good luck!

    Hey gsduds2... one simple strategy is right under your nose, and it gets you highly targeted traffic... it's the good old forum traffic strategy... and you're looking at someone who's doing it right now!

    Here's how it works...you visit posts and threads within a forum that is relative to your niche... then offer some really helpful advice, tips or strategies that will help someone else achieve what they want... I'm talking being genuinely helpful... not spamming them with rubbish.

    Then you edit your signature and insert a link to your offer. If your advice is helpful and your offer is compelling then it's quite likely they will want to know a bit more and of course... they click your link to find out!

    'Viola'... highly targeted, free traffic from forums... it's that easy!

    There are tons of great strategies just like this around.

    No such thing as free traffic. Even if I do it myself all the tools I use like computer, scrapebox, proxy goblin, internet connection, etc. aren't free. And my time? If anybody thinks there time is free has a serious self confidence issue. I consider my time to be the most valuable thing that I own, probably because I have so little of it left over to screw off once work is done.

    I agree that it's very hard to get "quality" free traffic. The trick is getting that traffic to convert to sales and so many of those traffic services won't do that for you. I've written some articles and submitted them to article directories as well that have gotten some great traffic, unfortunately not one sale resulted from my efforts.

    I think if you have a niche related item, you could join some forums in that niche and start discussions and conversations and make a great signature line and you might get some quality traffic that way. It comes down to testing and measuring your results. Also, make sure you use Google Analytics so you know what is working and what is not. Good luck to you!

    Your first step is the best step. If you want to get traffic you have to go after people who are looking for value and quality. To do that you have to find out keywords that these people search (with money in their hands). SEO is claimed to be a "tough" task, but when you do the keyword research properly you don't have to do any sorts of backlinking because the keywords will rank by themselves.

    Learn to do keyword research the right way and you will surely succeed with any niche, anywhere, anytime.

    Try contacting online publications relevant to your content or sign up to google analytics and check what keywords are the most searched for on Google; try including these words on your site and this works as a great tool for SEO.. and free

    If your selling, you should build a list, as you get to keep in touch with your visitors, if they subsribe to your newsletters, and they will be more likley to buy.

    Give something away for free and link it to your auto responder to do this.

    You can use forums like this, to gain traffic. Its best to use a signature so your website or product is attached to all your posts and comments (i think i got 3 new leads in just a few hours with one post).

    Create a page on Facebook. this helped an associate of mine build his downline in a program called Jss tripler, to 100 a week and then more, he's about to quit his job and move to the south of France. Facebook is a winner if done the right way, some people just use it to spam people, which ruins it for the serious marketers. Be careful if you buy traffic from Facebook as it can be costly. It drives thousands of people to your site, but if they don't sign up or buy something youv'e wasted your money, i fell into this trap.
    Try adding a"LIKE" button and "TWEET THIS" button to your site, because when liked the friends of that person can see whats been liked and may check out your site too, and so on.

    Ive created a few blogs, these generated a bit of traffic and created backlinks to my site, which seemed to help my ranking, hasn't really worked out for me this method but im told it does work.

    Traffic exchanges can be good if you have time to waste, you get one visitor for every website you visit, but to get some decent traffic or leads for your list i found you need to surf at least 500-1000 sites a day. You can pay for traffic with these but theres always a risk your not getting the targeted traffic you need, and that the hits are not unique, i.e. the same 50 people are visiting your site 10 times but it looks like you've had 500 visitors.

    Well i hope this was helpful and good luck

    solo ad sites like listjoe, yourezlist, reactive ads will give you free advertising in emails however they are basically spam and no one really looks at them (i know i don't). eleaver provides very cheap advertising but i recently ran a test for $20 got 300 clicks and 0 leads. Much better to get a quality paid solo ad that has a good relationship with there list. Other than that if you can seo like a champ that's your options for free traffic unless you make something go viral. There is no real free instant traffic thats easy to obtain. If it was, everyone would be doing it.

    You can do SEO but if you are brand new to it, you will probably need to invest a few months of your time to get any results worth mentioning.

    You can start out with video marketing, article marketing or both. If you have a hosting and can afford to purchase domains, purchase one and create a landing page for an product and promote it as an affiliate. Make sure there's a strong call to action on the page and that's it's clearly visible what the page is about and how your visitors can buy it.

    The thing with many beginners is, they spend way too much time making sure everything is perfect while in fact they are wasting their valuable time. The outcome is a site that has a great design, is well-structured, but it lacks visibility of your offer/affiliate link and therefore the conversion rates and CTRs suck.

    You can also create a squeeze page for the only purpose of building a list. The funnel is a little different there, it goes like:

    1. Finding a good traffic source to get targeted traffic to your SP
    2. Optimizing the SP properly to get the highest opt-in rates
    3. Making sure you are providing a ton of value to your subscribers and you are giving away information that they were truly after
    4. Building a strong relationship with your list and staying in the value-providing mode
    5. Offering something they will find useful and that you know will really benefit them while making money along the way.

    That's the process. Always make sure to provide value. Don't pursue the money solely.

    social networking sites are also a way to get traffic for free specially on twitter and facebook. the traffic you get from there can easily surpass the traffic from Google and the other search engines. It is true that building a large network of targeted followers on twitter and supporters on fb takes a lot of time and effort but generally the result is worth.

    Take really good notes and concentrate on a strategy you feel comfortable with given your own unique situation. Don't try to do everything at once, or else you'll get mediocre results. Just focus on 1 or 2 strategies...knowing that you gotta work at it continuously to see good results.

    If you have some money to spare you can try building your list with solo ads, if you have a product you can find Joint Venture partners that can promote for you. Like they said earlier there is not such thing as free traffic, you are going to pay some way or another. However, if you have time to spare find forums and communities on your niche and start providing value. Add your squeeze page on the signature link. Start following people on your niche on Twitter and add them as friends on Facebook. On social media and communities you need to provide value first, then after providing value you can promote your squeeze page.

  • Hey guys,
    Here are some tips that will help you with blog traffic:
    1. Guest Posting
    2. Bookmarking Sites
    3. Article Directories
    4. Forum Backlinks
    5. Blog Commenting
    6. Web 2.0
    7. Tier Link Building
    8. YouTube
    9. Twitter, Facebook (Social Networking)
    10. Directory Listing (Google Webmaster Tools)

    The ultimate goal is to build your list and take down your reader's email address to send them a weekly or monthly round-up of your blog posts and make them have more confidence in your services.

    I recommend trying out each tip one by one until you fully mastered the blog traffic tips and your website will be absolutely KILLER. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me. I'll be more than happy to help you.

    Try to set some goals for yourself like "Make $20 by this month" or "Get a 100 visitors a day in 1 week of opening the blog" every realistic goal that you complete you can pamper yourself by going shopping or buying a new video game that you like etc, etc. Goals will definitely help you have more motivation to get the blog up and running.

    Btw, don't get too disheartened. Most blogs don't get much traffic until a few months or a few years into blogging when more people notice your efforts. Keep this up and I believe you can do it!

      Great collection of traffic tips, and I agree with them all.

      One thing I haven't noticed (but I might have missed it) is press releases in addition to blogging, article marketing, and all the other stuff (social, Twitter, Squidoo, RSS, etc.).

      Another one is teleseminars! They open up a whole new way to get your name out there since there are directories where you can list your events. Plus you can list them in Facebook and LinkedIn etc.

      The key is to write high quality content on subjects people are really looking for, and they'll find you, especially if you provide them with ways to find you.

      Notice something? It's a lot of work, but once it works, it's worth it!

    Lots of ways to get traffic, among them : using free classified ads on Backpage, CL, OLX, and others.

    Also, guest posts on other high traffic blogs. If you are not a good writer, then find a good writer on Fiverr (and there are a few there who are very good) and have them write your articles, then use those to submit as guest posts on other blogs.

    Also, build up your own traffic sources on Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, and other social sites. I even have 9,000 contacts on Tagged dot com who I can send to my blogs.

    Press releases are good too, but only if you can write good ones and get good distribution. Fiverr also has some good Press Release gigs.

    Paid ads too. Banner ads on BuySellAds and others. Ezine Ads and Solo Ads. I have had some luck with 2Bucks An Ad

    Good luck !

This is a great way to get a huge traffic boost now.

    Once traffic and profit start coming in.. spend $15 a day on fiverr for traffic and you will see even more results. Be careful on which gigs you pick (read the testimonials). This is not only a great way to start getting traffic but an ongoing way to get traffic for even more advanced internet marketers.
