A popular website is one that receives a great deal of traffic on a daily basis. If you want to reach the level of your competition, obtaining traffic is the key piece in being able to compete on their level. However, generating traffic is not always easy, especially if your website is a new website. However, all hope is not lost as you can greatly improve your traffic and website popularity without spending money on paid traffic.
The following are ways in which you can generate loads of traffic for free:
Utilizing Yahoo Answers
Yahoo Answers is a great source to use in order to drive free traffic to your specific website or a particular webpage. The key to using Yahoo Answers affectively requires that you become a genuine contributor on the website. This means, that before you answer a question that will link to your website or webpage, you actively answer other questions that are posed. This helps you appear as a genuine contributor, instead of someone only dropping self-serving links.
The way to use Yahoo answers for traffic requires that you create two separate accounts. The first account will serve as the user who is posing a question and the second account will serve as the account of the user answering the question. The second account will also leave a link directly to your webpage that answers the question posed. This is a great way to drive free and targeted traffic to your website, especially if your link answers the question in great detail and is chosen as the "Best Answer" which you will do with the first account that you created.
Utilizing Social Bookmarking
Social bookmarking is another great method to drive traffic to your website. Additionally, social bookmarking is free and has the ability to drive hundreds to thousands of visitors to your website depending on how viral your link goes. Websites such as Folkd.com, Digg.com, and De.li.cious are great places to begin your social bookmarking efforts.
Utilizing Message Boards for Free Traffic
Forums and message boards are also great ways to drive traffic to your website. By becoming an active member, you can leave links to your website or specific webpages that correspond with the topic you are participating in. Most message board and forums allow up to two self-serving links in the signature area, so use this space wisely.
Making Use of Free Reports
Giving away free reports on popular forums, blogs or through membership and PLR websites is a great way to drive free and targeted traffic to your website. By leaving self-serving link inside of the report you've given away for free, you can drive traffic easily and in large quantities depending on how many times your free report is downloaded.
While these are just a few of the ways you can drive traffic, they are certainly not to be overlooked as they are great on their own, but even more powerful when used together.
