How To Get Free Legitimate Website Traffic
by Matt Bacak
So you’ve created a website and you aren’t getting any visitors? What should you do? Send traffic to your website! While sending traffic to your website can be expensive, it doesn’t have to be. There are several free methods that you can employ to increase traffic to your website or opt-in page. Most of these options will take time to get the results you are looking for so be patient when starting out. Here are some of the most useful methods to get free traffic.
Social Media Sites – Social media sites are so valuable because they can be very effective in getting information to mass amounts of people. Almost everyone has a Facebook or Twitter account. These sites have millions of users that could potentially be your customers. On your profile pages, include a link to your website. Promote your website in your posts but be careful not to over-promote your website. You do want to drive traffic to your site but you don’t want people to un-follow or un-friend you because they feel like they are being spammed. It’s a fine line between friendship and shameless spamming. Don’t just offer them a chance to view your site but also quality content.
Blogging and Article Writing – Blogging and article writing are both excellent ways to get traffic. Not only can you create your own content for blogging but you can use the blogging platform in other ways to increase traffic. Some great examples of this would be guest blogging and commenting on blogs. Article writing is another way to increase traffic. Always remember when writing articles or blog posts, keep your content unique and relevant. You want people to continue coming to your site even after they’ve found what they were originally searching for. Don’t forget to include a link back to your site in the signature! And write consistently. It won’t matter if you have unique content if you’re not consistently updating.
Forums – A forum is a dedicated space for discussions about a particular subject. Join a forum that deals specifically in your niche. When you post comments or discussion topics in the forum, be sure to include a link to your page. This can also help you find new content for your blog posts or articles. It gives you an opportunity to see what people are talking about in your niche.
Freebies – Who doesn’t like free stuff? Offer a free product, brochure or service to entice people to check out your site. This is a good way to earn customers. Just remember to make the freebie something that is worth people’s attention. Don’t give out junk.
SEO – Search Engine Optimization is one of the best ways to get traffic to your site. Think about how many times you use Google in one week. If you’re like me, you probably use it at least once a day. If people search for your niche but can’t find you, you’re losing money! Make yourself easy to find through optimizing your site for search engines.
