How To Work With Free Traffic GeneratorsWritten by Dan J. Fry
Free traffic?!! Wow! That just sends goose bumps down my spine!
We are all looking for free web site traffic. Search engines are best sources but you must constantly optimize for top indexing. There are however other sources of free traffic. Making good use of them takes a bit of patience and care.
One of growing popularity, traffic exchanges supply visitors to your site in exchange for traffic which you deliver to network of sites. These systems allow you to accumulate credits which are then converted in to a predetermined number of viewings of your site either in form of a link or an actual web page. The following lists some of most popular systems.
(1) Traffic Exchanges - TrafficSwarm is owned by SixDegrees Media in Sausalito, California, and driven in large part by CEO Wayne Van Dyck, an ex-Wall Street Investment Banker. It is by and far most well-run and beneficial traffic exchange that I have found to date. You can check it out at http://www.trafficswarm.com/cgi-bin/swarm.cgi?224700 .
Traffic exchanges work by crediting per amount of traffic you bring to other sites on network. This can be through your own surfing, referral traffic, or even by purchasing site visits. Most exchanges offer free and paid memberships, with paid members of course obtaining more perks and potentially more targeted traffic.
(2) Banner Exchanges - Banners are known not to have largest click through rates but can still be of benefit. They typically make use of a 2:1 or lower visibility ratio, meaning that for every 2 times someone views a banner on your site, 1 view of your banner will be shown elsewhere on network.
Why Writing Can Generate Credibility and Site TrafficWritten by Dan J. Fry
Search engines, banner exchanges, link exchange, ad co-ops, classified ads, newsgroups, discussion lists, safelists and FFA sites are all methods used to generate web site traffic and market products on internet. Some of them work well, and some flop like a day old pancake. There is one frequently overlooked technique, that when used appropriately will build your home business to extents you never dreamed possible.
Writing. Write, write and right again. Writing articles is one of best ways to promote your web site. Why? Think of it this way. When you place an ad you are always limited to what you can write and how long ad can be. So, you craft your sales copy to bring in greatest return, in terms of click through rates and sheer number of sales, for money spent. Once ad is released and campaign over, entire process must be repeated.
When you write articles however, your content and length restrictions are incredibly loose. It is within your article that you can show your expertise, connect to reader, and briefly advertise yourself and your business. Moreover, writing articles is viral, meaning it can spread throughout web to other sites and newsletters.
By submitting your articles and allowing others to publish them free of charge you begin to develop credentials in your field and essentially "brand" yourself through your name. If your articles are crafted with a story-telling perspective people will look forward to hearing from you. What can be better than creating that sort of anticipation.
