I'd like to know how others are generating free traffic to their websites. I'm just starting out and CPA kinda scares me at this point.

      What works for me is article submission you get high quality back links. Also if you are persistent then you get a decent amount of free traffic if you post 10 a week

      Yes, all good. We'd put social media at the very top, though! It's the best way to spread content quickly. Build a good fan base and go from there! Good luck!

    One thing I want to mention. There are some great suggestions for you to start getting free traffic, and a lot of the suggestions above will work nicely. However, if you are new to this whole internet marketing thing, keep in mind that it is going to take time for you to start seeing a steady income. But if you stick with it, it really can be worth your while.

    Ellie M, Hiya, i know your question was asking for methods for free traffic. Comments have already been posted about doing SEO optimization, Blogging, article writing etc, However these methods can take a considerable amount of time and research. So i am assuming you would rather be using your time to be making money then researching?

    If you have a strategy in place and understand the dynamics of what you want to achieve and need traffic, they key targeted traffic for you specific niche can be obtained by Solo Ads. I presume you aware of this strategy and i appreciate its not for free, However if you have a auto responder in place you can build you own list from the investment into Solo-ads. This is a method many marketers use to build their list, and once a satisfied list is built, many opt to do ad swaps to further their list size etc.

    If you are just starting out and want to do the basic and for free. Then look into keyword research ( Google keywords) and how to find affective keywords, Having found those keywords you could create a domain name based on those keywords. Having a strong keyword domain name with enable you to gain authority on the search engine etc.

    If you having difficulty in understand the program of keywords via google etc, you can always look up demo videos on Youtube etc.

    However i would recommend you spend less time on research and use you time on Solo ads and focus on the more important roles of your business. If you can outsource work, then great. Its all about creating leverage.....

      My main free traffic methods are writing lots of fresh new content around relevant keywords for the longtail traffic, optimized YouTube videos (quite easy to rank nowadays), and syndicating blog posts and mini ads throughout relevant Facebook Groups using Hootsuite.

      Prlog.org is also a cool press release site for free traffic as it tends to rank quite well in the main Google search. Squidoo seems to be making a comeback as well for those who like to leverage other sites for traffic, but make sure to focus on building up the authority of your primary site as the priority.

    Go for YouTube. It's much easier to rank than the webpage and with proper video you can bring in more subscribers and buyers, because you can practically pre-sell to the viewers easily. I would, however, try to make some good videos, at least a presentation type, and would definitely avoid animoto type of junk videos.

    Out of all the excellent choices you've been given choose 1 or 2 of them. For a moment forget the rest. Master or become proficient in the 2 you pick. Then move on to the next traffic tactic.

    If you do that you will have a breakthrough. The first one being you stuck to one thing and got good at it. The other is you now know how to generate traffic like the back of your hand. Plus you have the option now of teaching someone else how to do it. Package the teaching how you like. Paid (wso) or free report.

    If you want free traffic, seo is recommend, but more times than not seo involves investing, but not always. Just for back linking tools/services and proxies. Video marketing is really not right now on YouTube. And YouTube videos are fair easy to rank compared to a new domain.

    I write articles giving helpful lessons and original information based on new scientific discoveries. The information I give in my articles cannot be found anywhere. I’m giving away content I should charge for.

    This is everything I’m really doing, besides a little bit of many other activities.

    I tried to do many other things, but I felt that I was wasting my time and having poor results for the time I was spending doing these things.

    I also tried PPC but this cannot work for me because my products are original, they are not known products. So, my visitors have to think.

    It’s not a good idea to pay for thinkers.

    So, I saw that I had better do what I can do well instead of wasting my time with marketing strategies that took too much of my time, and which I basically dislike. I prefer to teach the public.

    I’m glad because EzineArticles is becoming stronger again. I always submit my articles to EZA because I have their widget at my sites, what shows to my visitors that there is new information there everyday.

    I also created 82 Squidoo lenses, which are driving traffic to my websites and blog.I stopped creating lenses because only a few of them where getting real traffic. But I’m glad because some of the lenses I have created keep sending me visitors, who remain longer at my websites and blog. Now I'm trying to send more traffic to my existing lenses.

    time = money
    when you market things with Low ROI and Tiny Comission (like most of the offers) its a problam to Succes with Paid Advertising

    The most important thing as i see is:
    Built a list (AR)
    use remarketing & Social Remarketing
    Market Offers & Systems that paid High Comission and have a good ROI

    the most Important thing ALWAYS Enjoy What you do!!!
