Generating traffic to your website can be difficult at best. Difficulty is increased if you do not truly understand advertising online. I'm sure you have heard other experienced webmasters say that the money is in the list. While that may be very important, it does not begin there. The truth is, if there is no traffic to your website, there can be no list.

There is no cause for alarm as there are a number of free ways to create traffic. For instance, the social media websites offer excellent platform for generating web traffic. This is most beneficial if you first understand that it does not work if you immediately jump in with blatant advertisements and marketing messages. In fact, this could hurt your reputation and keep potential customers from clicking to your website. Honestly, it is hard to recover from a bad reputation online.

There are a number of ways to leverage the large amount of social media websites that exist online. A good way to start is to begin by writing articles and posting them on your blogs and submitting to article directories. Of course, each of these articles contains a link back to your website. This website link should direct potential viewers to further information on your website. This not only makes it possible to generate web traffic, it also helps to position yourself as an authority in your field. As you continue to do this, your links will begin to grow and traffic will begin to increase. Thankfully, there are a number of social media websites that are waiting for your content to be submitted.

There are a few websites to get you started:

1. Reddit - is a popular social news/social bookmarking website that covers a various amount of topics that are focused on. These topics include programming, science, politics, and business, this is an extremely high traffic website and is beneficial to generate traffic for you.

2. Digg - is by far the largest social news website on the Internet today. This website covers all topics from technology to general news. It can also provide a strong amount of traffic for you.

3. Propeller - another one of the extremely popular social news sites is this one. It operates similar to Digg by covering all topics from politics to entertainment.

4. Mixx - is also very popular, although it is more of a social news site. Topics included on this website include sports, health, entertainment, and technology. Furthermore, there are groups that will allow you to share information with others also.

5. Shoutwire - another general news site that has a large amount of users on daily basis. Topics covered are politics, entertainment, lifestyle, and sports.
