|3 Ways to Increase Your Web
Targeted website traffic is the lifeblood
of any website looking to generate revenue. While FREE traffic
from the search engines seems the most logical way to go,
actually staying ahead of the game can be tough. Here are
my top 3 ways to send your traffic counter spinning without
1. Trading Links With Other Webmasters:
By mutually agreeing with another webmaster to trade link
exposure on each others site, you're expanding your market
reach significantly. Not only does this generate instant traffic
from the link partner, but you'll also BOOST your Google PR
and link ranking with other search engines as a bonus.
This helps you rank better in the listings, generating even
more FREE traffic, without doing any complicated SEO.
There are some great tools to help you get started trading
links. Some of them are even free. I don't recommend them
personally because annoying banners or other types of ads
compete for the same space, doesn't look very professional.
Alternatives to FREE software worth checking out are...
The ALMIGHTY Zeus - The one I use. Tough to get used to, but
an excellent piece of kit. The darn thing learns and just
keeps getting smarter the more you use it. (And a FREE trial
so you can become a master before you buy)
Reciprocal Link Manager - Not as sophisticated as Zeus but
much easier to learn if you're pressed for time.
Axandra's Arelis - Lots of great reviews for this one and
more in the Zeus mould.
2. Writing Articles to Publish Online:
This technique is a very close second to my favourite one
which I'll share in just a moment. The amount of exposure
you can get from writing a simple article is astounding.
After you've written it up, you submit to the major article
directories, then just sit back and watch the traffic stream
As an added bonus you start to gain more respect within your
industry. Articles have this uncanny knack to create an aura
of expertise around the writer.
You also benefit yet again with search engine ranking, as
other webmasters with mailing lists publish your article on
their site. Creating yet another link back to you.
Articles are a VERY effective pre-selling technique too.
How much more targeted would a prospect be arriving at your
website after reading one of your articles in an email or
on another site?
Not only did you get the recommendation from the publisher,
but if they enjoy reading your article and get some value
from it, you've already broken down one of the main barriers
Here are some cool resources to get stuck into:

And a nice BIG list of directories and announcement lists:
3. Viral Marketing:
Viral Marketing is defined as "Any advertising that propagates
itself the way viruses do"; E.g. When Hotmail users send e-mails,
they "infect" the recipients with the tagline at the bottom
of their messages.
If you UNLEASH a 'Viral Marketing' campaign, it will just
keep on multiplying, spreading your message around the web
like wildfire. I absolutely LOVE this method of sending quality
traffic to my website for FREE.
Generating free traffic with 'Viral Marketing' is easily the
most rewarding use of your time. Taking good steps to craft
the right offer and layout of your 'Viral Marketing' message
is essential. But get it right, and not only will a truck-load
of qualified visitors come to your website, but an air of
respect and expertise is generated around you and your business.
