So many ways! Your head must be spinning. However, not necessary you have to implement every ways discussed. Test a few, see how it goes for you and if you think you are good at it, just go for it. To me, article writing and distribution works best.

Autosurfing is semi not legal. (frowned upon)*

It is also not very effective.

In this model, you don't need to 'exchange' traffic on the manual traffic exchange route where you view other's ads in exchange for them viewing yours -

You just put in your link and it spins to others - who are also not viewing. So what is the point - nobody sees your ad.

* They sometimes say you can earn money from this 'advertising' and (this is the reason it is not legal: it is actually a Ponzi type scheme where you do pay fees to participate and what you earn is merely from what others R paying - rather than for an actual product or service commission which would be legal.)

Sometimes they work for a while but then may shut down keeping the money they owe you as well as the fees you paid. The owners may disappear or the government can go in and shut them down, freezing their money so they can't pay you.

edit: (this last one actually happened to me - and to this day the feds have not returned my money even though i was a victim).

I guess there are exceptions to this because they do exist somehow - however it is a gamble...

You can also be penalized by the search engines if your link is associated with these.


Stick to actual real marketing - blogs, forums, social networks, article directories, manual traffic exchanges, and permission based email, etc.

Some Great information and tips here! But my problem has not so much been getting traffic, but converting the traffic into people joining or even downloading the free Dotcomology E-Book, or the Newbie Videos. After 3 months I have had lots of traffic but no one single signup. Evidently the traffic I have been getting is from the wrong side of the tracks? Or is it my site? Any offers or suggestions will be GREATLY appreciated. If I could just START my list I would be encouraged somewhat. But 3 months and not even 1 signup on my list other than me, I have to be doing something wrong. HELP!

Thanks in advance!

Do you have a pop up? I'm in the same boat on my regular optins...Thinking of adding a personal video to the optin to add some extra interest on my various sites - plus I need to focus on a couple of great freebies as a reward. I am getting optins via my Global Success link, but also want optins for the other ones. Just need more time in the day. Lalala! Yep. Time and Efficiency - a little more knowledge would help too....

Yes You Can

I would have to say the best way is backlinks. Join forums, post your brothers link with a good comment and submit the site to search engines. Search engine traffic is always the best in any field of web marketing. Best of all it is free and boosts your ranking.

Although Google is constantly collecting information you will find that webmaster tools can be very slow to update, especially if you have a fairly new site. Don't worry too much, the backlinks and queries will show up eventually. Mine seem to run about 4/5 days behind real time, more for the backlinks.

A very good tip is to use the services that is accessible on fiverr.com. It is a website where you can outsource to a very low cost, $ 5 to be exact ... it is actually said in the name . I've used it for a couple of times and think it is a great way to get things done. After a while it is very likely to find someone who can perform work for you on a regular basis. On fiverr you can get experienced people to write articles for you, they can perform back-link jobs and much much more. Just check it out.

Lots of good ideas here, but again am also struggling in the same way as most others, whatever traffic comes to my site goes back with no signups.

I would not recommend this because even if you get lots of free traffic to it, Youtube may delete your videos saying that they are spam at some point or another. I had a video that got over 50,000 views and got me like 10-20 visitors per day. One day they decided to take it down and there was nothing I can do about it.

Wow Tal.

First I heard about youTube. That does not seem right. Goo Goo Goo

You are having my kind of luck - i just tried to set up a new amazon store & site and my job would be to write reviews and research the various product industries to promote my electronic products.

My middle name is procrastination and I have passed through or over many affiliate programs -- {only free ones are the ones i keep but don't do anything with} -- (stupido)

... but to sell tangible product, i actually TOOK ACTION and rolled this all out with the hosting and my first content posts, images, etc. all ducks in a row - a hub page, It was fun.

A week later Amazon fires all California Affiliates because our state wants them to charge sales tax on their sales - you probably heard - it's a big political noise - so, I never had a chance to fail, but neither did I have a chance to try. waaaahhhh.

create a blog on the website (install wordpress)

then start writing 1 article daily on the blog

then start social bookmarking all your articles to social bookmarking sites (stumbleupon, reddit, digg, delicious etc)

then start writing comments on big bloggers pages (example - johnchow, problogger) <- this shall get you free visitors from their blog

then once you become somewhat more popular, start writing guest posts on other people's blogs

all these techniques are free and shall get you a lot of traffic!

I'd first make sure that the niche and keywords are viable by running them through Google Adwords Keyword Tool, Google Insights, and Google Trends.

This is valuable, and free information as to the potential for your site.

My links below will also provide you with free tools for traffic.

Not to hijack the thread, but everyone is talking about installing blogs on your Wordpress site.

Would there be any difference for Google ranking purposes and for traffic to your site if there was a message board installed instead of a blog?

I believe a message board would better serve my purposes, but would just like to know how a message board vs. blog would compare.

My main site is one that I print photos on canvas. I'm also a photographer and sell many prints. I believe a message board on my site would bring others together in a place such as WF where different categories and topics would benefit better than just a blog.

Thoughts?

Hi, Ken:

Why not the best of both worlds? Have both a blog and a message board on your site, then visitors would have a choice. People love having options.

The blog is beneficial because you can post personal and insightful details about your craft and your experience ... AND your visitors can post comments, if they choose.

A message board (like a forum) does provide options for more topic threads and more discussion and interaction between visitors and members.

However, as an active member of several forums and administrator for one in particular, I know that many forums are challenged to get enough traffic and participation to keep them exciting and appealing. A forum or message board on a website such as you are suggesting might have difficulty keeping it exciting.

I'm not trying to discourage you from your idea. Just saying that 'options' make people happy and offer you the best of both worlds.

Hi GT,

I actually thought about doing both before I posed my question

I understand what you're saying about keeping things interesting on a forum so that folks sign up and remain. I planned on having a board dedicated to photography, cameras, photo editing, printing, etc... I visit several of each of these boards already and none of them are short on members.

A few of my buddies are also pro photographers too and they have agreed to help me moderate the forum, and contribute valuable content.

There is still a high probability of doing both a blog and a forum on my site. I was just curious if Google favored one over the other.

Hi, Ken:

I'm not sure if Google favours one over the other, but I do know that the more variety you have in your marketing styles, the more it improves the perceived value of your website.

It sounds like you have a good feeling for your market and the potential for success for a message board service. I say go for it! A blog is still a good idea, but if your interest is in the board, then that is where you should start.

Hello, Geego:

Although there is much more to it than this, here is the abbreviated explanation.

There are what I call two ways to use Social Bookmarking: the direct way and the indirect way.

The direct way is to join social sites like forums, Facebook, Twitter, IM faceplate, MySpace and many others, set up your member profile with links back to your website, and then become ACTIVE on those sites to build up your presence and your reputation as a contributing member. Whenever you make a new blog post, add other content to your website, or submit articles to article directories, then go back to your social sites and post the link or an announcement.

The indirect way is to use a service like Onlywire where you set up a variety of social sites that will automatically "bookmark" links to your new posts or articles when you instruct the Onlywire service to do so.

The idea is that when your links get bookmarked to social sites in this way, some members of those sites might see your link, might click on it and be sent to your website.

There are many sources for generating traffic, some best are:
1 - Article Marketing - Write quality articles on interesting topics and submit on different article directories. Remember one article only for one website (avoid duplication).
2 - Find related blog sites and do commenting.
3 - Bookmark your site on popular sites like Digg, Delicious and etc.
4 - Use Facebook, Twitter and other social media to promote your site.
5 - Join different forums and start discussion having your site link.
You can also exchange link with related sites.
Thank you

Free Ways To Increase Website Traffic

Driving quality targeted traffic to your blog or website is the most important part of any webmaster or bloggers job. With nobody visiting your site, even the greatest looking site with tons of great content isn’t going to make you any money. Making money from your blog/site requires sufficient amount of visitors. Of course no blog or site is born with thousands of visitors. In order to drive traffic to your site, you need to promote it. The more traffic you drive to your blog, the more money you will make.
There are many ways to drive quality traffic to your site, including paid advertising, which is one the most effective methods of getting quality traffic to your site, but not everyone has or wants to spend money on paid advertising, specially beginners like myself. Fortunately there are many free and easy ways to drive quality traffic to your site. Here are 61 easy and free ways you can generate quality targeted traffic for your blog or website.

Submit your site wherever you can!

1. submit your blog to directories in your niche.
2. submit your blog to all the free directory and search engines.
3. submit your site to free website review sites like coolsiteoftheday.
4. submit each and every post to social bookmarking sites using onlywire.
5. submit your articles to article directories like Ezine, article base and associated content.

Use web 2.0 and other resources to promote your site.

6. write related articles on WikiPedia with your blog url in it.
7. make a hubpage for your blog, with a little bit information about your blog.
8. make a wiki page for your blog.
9. make a squidoo lens or more with a link to your site.
10. sign up at 43things.com and write things related to your blog and what you want to accomplish.(you’d be surprise by the number of people, just reading other peoples list)
11. create a myspace page for your blog.
12. create a facebook page for your blog.
13. create a hi5 page for your blog.
14. join blogcatalog and do the same as with mybloglog.
15. use MyBlogLog to create a community around your blog. join other peoples community, so they do the same for you.
16. create an account with Technorati and with every new post, ping it.
17. post related how-to videos on you tube with your blog address on the bottom of the screen or at the end or beginning of the video.
18. use yahoo answers to answer questions related to your niche, leaving your link in the resource box. (believe it or not, 10% of my traffic comes from 20 minutes a week answering questions on yahoo answers)
19. create an account on stumbleupon, and stumble each and every article you write. (one of the best ways to drive traffic to your site for free)
20. join as many forums as possible, especially forums related to your niche

Take advantage of free tools and Plug-ins.

21. place a “digg it” button right after your post, to make it easy for your readers to digg your post.
22. use a comment notifying plug-in to let your readers know about new comments. believe it or not, most people read more of other peoples comment on your post, than your post itself.
23. use social bookmarking plug-ins to make it easy for your readers to submit your post to social bookmarking site
24. install “tell-a-friend” plug-in to make it easy for your readers to let others know about your post.

26. use a forum plug-in to create a forum for your blogs readers to talk and discuss related issues.
27. use a free keyword tool to find and use good ranking keywords in your niche.
28. use sites like vista print to make free business cards ($5 shipping for 250 free BC which is worth it) with your site url on it and pass it around.
29. make a free favicon to be easily found in your readers favorites file. (people like to find what they want fast. I myself sometimes give up finding a particular article or site in my huge favorite file, simply because i don’t want to spend 5 minuets to go through the whole list. A favicon is like big spot light focused on you between hundreds of other people!
30. use free press release services to gain visibility.
31. Use pingomatic to ping RSS aggregators.
32. use free advertising sources like craigslist and backpage to post ads about your articles or blog in related categories.

Other Bloggers Can Help Too!

33. talk about or if you can interview a trusted person in your niche
34. Leave comments on blogs in related niches or any niche for that matter.(don’t spam, leave genuine comment, as you would like others to do so for you)
35. make a banner ad for your blog and exchange with other interested bloggers.
36. use blogroll to link to other bloggers in your niche in exchange for a link to your blog on their blog roll.
37. ask other bloggers to write a review of your blog in exchange for a link to their site from your site.
38. dedicate a post about a top bloggers in your niche. it will catch their attention and they may link to you
39. whenever appropriate, link to other bloggers articles in your post. they will return the favor.
40. use your best articles to post on other peoples blog as a guest writer (it’ll gain you visibility and new audience)
41. another blogger to post on your blog as guest (while he enjoys some new readers, it will brings his readers to your site as well)

Use your site as a tool to attract and keep visitors.

42. provide freebies, like free ebooks, free downloads and etc, to your readers.
43. once in a while run a contest related to your niche and encourage visitors to participate for a prize, and do give a prize to the winner, no matter how small. it will help to establish your persona as a trusted blogger, and once people see you as a trustworthy person, not only they will keep coming back to you, but they will bring other visitors as well.
44. use common questions related to your niche for the title of your article.
45. use keywords in the title of your post. keywords in title is one of the easiest and most important techniques of search engine optimization.
46. use a small place on your blog to have your blogs complete url ready for those who wish to link to your blog.
47. keep your blog clean and easily navigable.(how many times you have left a site, because you weren’t able to find what you came for?)
48. use numbered list for your informative posts, like “5 ways to…”. people tend to like these kinds of post.
49. shocking and surprising articles will draw people to your site.
50. be on the look out for new developments and news related to your niche, the first person breaking a new story, gets the most traffic.
51. videos are increasingly becoming popular, use them on your blog to your advantage.
52. use tags for your post, as its becoming a very popular way of finding related content.
53. Post frequently. search engines and readers like fresh content.
54. if you have any other blog or site, place a link to your site. (you can even create a blog to talk about your journey with your blog/site).
55. read and respond to your readers comment.(if i feel that what i say is important to the writer, i am more likely to came back for more and encourage others to do the same)

Extra!

56. Put your blog URL in your forum signatures.
57. use your blog name for your user name in forums and when leaving comment on other blogs.
58. ask your friends and family to Digg and stumble your posts. a post with more diggs or stumble, means more visibility.
59. put your blogs name and url on a bumper sticker or something like that, and attach it to your car. big corporations pay people to place their ads on their car, you don’t have to pay anyone, use your own car and also give some stickers to your friends and family and ask them to stick it on back bumper.
60. make flyers with your blogs name and a short captivating headline style description and pass it in the mall or parking lots. if you use a good headline, at least 60-70% of the people will visit your blog out of curiosity, and who knows how many will become your die-hard fans!(readers).
61. and last but not least, be patient and give it some time. no one goes from 20/30 visitors a day to hundreds and thousands of visitors, over night.
Some of the above mentioned traffic generating methods can be done in under 5 minutes, and some may take longer. But one thing is certain, if you put enough time and effort into using these methods, you will see great results, and you will succeed in driving massive amounts of quality traffic to your site. Use these free and easy traffic generating methods, combined with fresh quality content, and you are sure to see a huge increase of traffic to your blog or website.

Now Enjoy Free Traffic

Another way is residual traffic from traffic exchanges referrals.

In Trafficswarm it lists the Top 25 Referrers and the free credits earned.

I just checked to illustrate the point(7th Oct 11) and these are the statistics for Stone Evans:

Number of referrals7333
Free credits earned 3666500

Social networks, forums, blogs, articles, videos on lots of sites (youtube is one of many), all "Answer"-sites - Yahoo, wikianswers etc. There is a lot. Remember that traffic won't come immediately, hard work is the key to success.

Last but not least, just optimize the site. Work on keywords. That will result in genuine traffic from search engines.

There are many ways to get traffic on your site such as one of the best way is social bookmarking. Find some high page rank SBM site submit your site get some nice votes, it will help in Google crawl. Another way is directory submission which is easiest thing you can do, then do blog commenting related to your site.

When I was researching keywords, I signed in to Google Adwords with a new account and got $100 in free ads. Hope this helps. I'm using it as a learning curve for paid ads.

There are many great ideas already here. I'm going to take a little bit different route.

Check the keywords for your site.
Do on-page SEO optimization for site for those keywords.

Work on your site every day or two, search engine seem to like active websites.

Fix the link in your signature.

Check your link when you build your backlinks, to make sure it leads back to your website.

I've recently learned that by starting a blog like WordPress and adding relevant keyword specific content is a sure way to get ranked and also get traffic. Read all you can in the forum, there is so much experienced wisdom here.

Forums and social sites are great for traffic ... when you are active in those sites. Members need to see that you are active, supportive, participating and approachable. When they see you, they are motivated to visit your site to see what you promote.

Blogging is great for traffic as long as you research your keywords adequately and you optimize the blog post appropriately.

Article marketing can be good, but the results are not always immediate. And again, if you research your keywords thoroughly, write the article well and optimize it properly, you can speed up the process.
