    Hi there!

    In my own opinion, the best way to get free traffic is by engaging yourself in social media sites. Just post your products and services in social site such as Facebook and slowly grow your network of like and subscribers to your products and services.

    It may take long before you can become an authority. However, the wait is worth the results as satisfied customers will tend to refer your products and services.

    I got to say twitter and Facebook are great sources of free traffic, also a great starting point, but beware don't over do it, nothing more annoying than someone pushing 15 articles a day on facebook, what ever you share make sure it is relervent and interesting, if your bored writing about it, most likely people going to be bored reading it.

    Do both, Social Media and Off page SEO. In this way you'll definitely get traffic to your sites. I also do some on page SEO, which includes h1,h2 tags etc, optimize images, install plugins and pingsites, and also interlinking.

    -There are various methods like social networking.
    Google+ has become the best traffic driver because one can precise the story there and give people more of a lead in to what you're thinking.
    Twitter is the most reliable driver of traffic to Convince & Convert traffic.You tweet your latest post to your audience, but you can also set up searches for questions that other Twitter users are asking.
    In Facebook,You can join pages and groups which are according to your demands. You can share your pages or posts on that groups which are active.
    -Optimize your site for search engines.
    -Frequently update the contents of your site.
    -Take advantage of social bookmarking sites

        You can do your keyword research. Look up google keyword tool in a google search and then type in the area or niche you are looking to gain web traffic in.

        Once you have seen some of your best keywords. See if any domains are available exactly or closely matching your best keywords.

        Having the great keyword inyour domain will make it easier for you to rank on that keyword and therefore get you traffic.

        Then you need to do something to rank your website for the keyword, but that is whole another big lesson.

          Hi,
          is it for promoting your site?
          you are doing pretty well insite SEO wise, need more pages to gain authority (70 so far, good effort). The front page is a bit busy and busy is confusing, but if that is how you like it...

          You are against some giant competition, your own boss and all the other jvs. This is a problem, you can´t go after the main keywords, you need to go long tail.

          Social media marketing: you already have Facebook, linkedin, myspace and youtube. Maybe you want to add twitter.

          Youtube can bring you a lot of traffic if you put your face in it and teach stuff like changing oil in a car, or whatever you do with those products.

          Forum posting, etc... look for communities with related interests, like car detailing. You might bring some good targeted traffic if you are social enough.

          According to the stats, Pinterest is more of a girl site; but if you buy a database of car photos and add some pages talking about them, you can do a pinterest campaign for your site too. (mmmm this is on the crazy ideas side)

          Then... it looks like you are after some different industries like marine and motor-home, besides normal cars. You might be able to do article marketing going after the specific needs of the different vehicles.

          You can go local with this. Build a set of clients in your area where there is not so much jv competition. In this case, you need some local keywords to target. And maybe invest in flyers. There are some wsos in local, you might want to check them out (can´t recommend any in particular, I don´t sell local).

          Hope it helps,
          Sandra

    It depends on your business model...

    Here's a good one:
    Create a squeeze page and quality product (you would sell) then offer it as a bonus to product sellers, you should return the favor at some point ...but if you have no following or buyers then simply promise to send them some buyers once you build up a buyers list or offer them another service in exchange.

    The big take away is go after quality traffic and focus on 'free' methods that are not time intensive because 'time is money' as they say.

      I agree with jbode it depens on your website model it is personal, network or bussines? There is no fastest way in gaining traffic except you use media traffic buying. Optimize seo and keep writing good quality content will guide you to natural traffic and loyal visitor.

    Forums, in my opinion, are the best sources of traffic. Why?

    1) You get direct traffic from people looking for info on a specific topic

    2) You get social media mentions since many people who visit forums also run blogs and websites. Many have facebook pages and twitter accounts.

    3) You get SEO benefits from forums that are DO FOLLOW

    Hello DurableOilCom,

    I think three of the best methods for you starting off include article marketing, blog posting, and social media marketing.

    Article marketing- write some articles on your topic of interest. They don't have to be really lengthy (even 400-word articles will do)- just make they are pertinent to your topic and provide either unique information and/or present information from a unique perspective. Then include a signature file (a 4- to 5-line bio) at the end of the article with a link back to your site (which can be hosted on your own website host server or even a free blog site such as Blogger, Tumblr, Squidoo, etc.).

    You then submit your article to popular article directories like EzineArticles.com (find others via a Google search for "article marketing directories." This will allow other website owners to find your article and use it on their site, but must keep your signature file intact, thereby providing you with positive publicity and your website/blog with a free backlink, which can help with optimizing it for the search engines (i.e. make it appear higher in the search engine rankings). If people like your article, they'll want to learn more about you and what you can offer, likely coming to your site and signing up for your newsletter (which you should strongly consider producing on a regular basis on popular topics in your industry or niche).

    Blog posting- this can be a combination of your own blog hosted on your own Webhost server (a popular choice is the WordPress platform that you can download for free from WordPress.org and upload it to your Webhost server) or can be a free blog that is offered by the likes of Blogger.com (powered by Google), Tumblr, Squidoo, etc. You then post about topics related to your field of interest. You can have a subscription opt-in box that leads to your newsletter and/or links back to your main site and/or product offers on your blog.

    You can also be a "guest blogger" for other prominent blogs in your field or industry; in this case, you provide a blog post for a popular topic in your field or industry, then submit it to the owner of the blog you are writing for. You usually can provide a bio at the end, similar to a signature file for an article, and include it at the end of your blog post with a link back to your site and/or newsletter sign-up page. Again, this will help with SEO purposes for your site/blog.

    Social media marketing- If you aren't already an active member of social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and LinkedIn, you should start immediately. Sign up, fill out your profiles with relevant details about yourself and your expertise, then work on expanding the number of followers, subscribers, and friends you have. Don't spam to get them (these sites frown upon that), but work to increase your sphere of influence. By providing relevant information freely on your social media profile pages and via free reports/ebooks, etc., you will gain positive publicity, which will also help to increase your followers, friends, subscribers, etc. Provide a few links within the posts you make on your page and in your free reports/ebooks to your site, blog, newsletter opt-in form, and/or product page (your own products or affiliate products).

    SEO is becoming more influenced by social media sites and "likability," so you should definitely include social media marketing as soon as possible, as these sites and their popularity aren't going anytime soon; in fact, they're more likely to become more influential in affecting a site's SEO rankings in the search engines.

    Hopefully, this has been helpful - good luck!

    Take care,

      How do you mean specifically by blogging Randal?

      Blogging as in just write an article on your blog and that's it?

      Or do you mean everything that usually goes hand in hand with blogging such as; guest posting on related blogs or; blog commenting on other related blogs. And of course building links to the blog post.

      Or do you just mean the first?

    One of the best ways to get free Traffic is to swap list with someone is your same niche.

    Find out if they have a good quality product if so - email them asking if they would like to swap list. If they say yes, You will then tell your list about this person, while they tell their list about you.

    For me personally it has to be FaceBook!

    I have to only spend around 30 minutes a day there using some simple but highly effective traffic strategies.

    Then you can tap into the sheer high amounts of numbers that hang out there.

    Look for Fan Pages that are closely linked to your niche and filter that traffic back to your Fan Page.

    Once people are at your page, try to encourage them to join your list by leaving links to your squeeze pages below your main page image.

    Also update them with new blog posts by linking back to your blog on a daily basis.

    Works for me and hope this helps you out too!!!

    There is no such thing as "free traffic".

    No matter what you do (SEO, article marketing, social media etc) it costs you time, which in my opinion is more expensive than money, since the longer something takes, the less money you'll make.

    Plus, SEO isn't free anyway (despite the fact most people here will say it is), because for decent rankings for decent keywords, you'll need to invest in software, backlinks etc.

    Paid traffic (solo ads, media buys, CPA traffic etc) brings in results faster, and as long as you have a decent product and back end, it's easy to make a consistent profit.

    By the way, most so-called "free traffic" is actually a lot more unreliable than paid traffic. SEO, article marketing etc relies on Google rankings, which change almost daily. I don't know about you, but I can't see the point in wasting all that time with no guaranteed results, or no guarantee that the results will be consistent.

    Just my $0.02

      By the way, most so-called "free traffic" is actually a lot more unreliable than paid traffic. SEO, article marketing etc relies on Google rankings, which change almost daily. I don't know about you, but I can't see the point in wasting all that time with no guaranteed results, or no guarantee that the results will be consistent.

      I totally agree. You either invest time or money. If you invest time there is a cost. How much do YOU cost per day. You have to eat, live etc.

      The smart way to make money is to invest a little and try to get more back. If you can do that consistantly you will make money. Later on you might be able to scale it up and make more money.

      No matter what you do (SEO, article marketing, social media etc) it costs you time, which in my opinion is more expensive than money, since the longer something takes, the less money you'll make.

    The best source of free traffic IMO is youtube. Youtube traffic converts like gangbusters compared to other forms like facebook, twitter and other social media sites. Video is the future of the internet. Blog commenting, forum posting and such can only go but so far.

    If you want free traffic, it's all about SEO and social media sites.

    Also video works wonders if you have some charisma.

    Now of course, list building helps too, but I mostly build lists with paid traffic. So, it's free once you have it, but you need to get it first.

    There are several ways for you to get free targeted traffic, first you can use social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, etc. You can also utilize videos and upload them at YouTube and Dailymotion for starters. For article marketing, you can create an Ezinearticles account and submit high quality content so people will click on your resource box.

    There are several other ways you can use to get free targeted traffic for your website, all you have to do is devote sometime for research and look it up.

    I have staked my business in Traffic Exchanges and I make lots of money in it. Most of the people here will tell you not to use them, but that just leaves more sales for me and you. I get Sales everyday from them. The key is to track them and find the best and stick with it.

    Always have your marketing system setup to reward others for referrals. Even if you are online, your buyers have friends and associates who may be interested in your product/service.

    Easy way to drive traffic is commenting on blogs, posting on forums and using social media. A bit harder is writing articles and submitting them to article directories.

    Everyone is giving great advise here, but maybe let me sum it up and make it simple: wherever there is someone lurking online who has a more than ordinary interest/need in your product/service, and who has a ready link to your site for more info, etc., there is your good free traffic. Videos, social media, articles, forums, etc. Mind you, this is not the mythical firehose of traffic, but it is a start.

      To get free as in both time and money then you need to work out how to reward others for doing the work for you.

      Being a rewarding target for Affiliate marketers is one great way to achieve this, you of course give the money away but then you never had it in the first place and you can achieve your goals quite literally whilst you sleep.

      Otherwise focus on engaging with others and become an attractive destination for them

    Begin educating yourself first...read and research...

    You can begin with free traffic exchanges like Traffic Swarm and try creating your first free safe list membership. eg. List Joe.

    Facebook and blogging is good but IMHO a good JV is worth it's weight in gold.

    1. Buy a couple of non competing products in your niche.
    2. If you like the product, send them an email saying that you really like their product.
    3. If you like the product, and if you get a chance to talk to the creator of the product, then do so (this includes paying for a coaching call if necessary)
    4. If you like the way the call goes and the way they do business, and if you think they are a fit then:
    5. Create a rockin free report that actually gives away really good content that solves a problem that the product creator's customers need solved.
    6. Ask the product owner if they're happy to send your report to their list - don't sweat it about squeeze pages, just brand the crap out of your report.
    7. If you don't have a ripping product, create one.
    8. Ask if the non competing product owner is willing to JV with you, and to build your list, give them the lion's share of the profits.
    9. If not, keep creating awesome reports that they'll send to their list.

    All in all, IMO this is a much more effective way than blogging, Facebook, commenting etc as you're getting access to a targeted niche list and you're not competing with the list owner, and to boot you've made a contact, and hopefully friend, in the industry!

    Hope that helps!

    PS: Oh, and in all of this, be open and transparent! In the call (coaching or otherwise) let the product owner know that you're looking to learn the marketing side (as you're obviously new to all of this) but that you have some great skills in your particular niche, and that you want to give back at least as much value to the them as you'll be getting from them. In a way you're effectively asking for mentoring, and it's important that both parties benefit.
