Driving traffic to your website without spending a single time on advertising is certainly possible. In fact, there are hundreds of free ways you can drive traffic to your website, but none as popular and as effective as article marketing and trading links with other webmasters. Read on to find out how you can get started with these two profitable and free methods for traffic building.
Article Marketing for Traffic 101
Writing an article that intrigues your audience is a great way to not only sell or promote your product, but it is also a great way to drive a herd of traffic to your website through what is known as "article marketing." Article marketing is the process of writing articles, with self-serving links to your website included in the resource area, that are designed to drive loads of free traffic to your intended destination.
Articles used for article marketing typically involve giving away free tips, guidelines, or even helpful insights to readers in the hopes that after reaching the end of your article, they are compelled enough by your resource box to learn more about the particular topic you have just discussed or a topic that you are trying to promote through your resource box.
An article that is optimized for both search engines and your readers is one of the best ways to drive free and targeted traffic to your website. In fact, many webmasters have found that relying solely on articles is a great way to not only drive targeted traffic but also build backlinks in the process.
Trading Links for Traffic
While it has been said that Google frowns upon paid link exchanges, trading links with other webmasters is a great way to drive traffic for free to your website. By simply contacting the webmaster whose website you are requesting a link from, you can receive a free backlink for what may take all of less than three minutes to do -- and that includes writing the e-mail requesting the exchange.
It is important to note that while trading links is a free method, it is not a guaranteed method. Webmasters have the choice of whether they will accept your request for a link exchange or deny your request. However, if the webmaster agrees to participate in a link exchange, this could mean tons of targeted traffic to your website, especially if the website where your link is located happens to be a frequently visited domain on the web.
