Free traffic is a bit of a misnomer. There is always an investment, be it time or a monetary investment. However, if you learn to work smarter, not harder, it can be done fairly easily.

Basically, there are two methods for getting free traffic.

1. Credit based traffic generation such as traffic exchanges and safelits.

2. Organic search listing through the use of SEO/SEM.

Each of these methods takes time and effort. The first delivers more instant results, typically with a lower conversion rate. The second usually converts better, but is a long term strategy that takes time and is ongoing.

Either way, there is no "Magic Button" or shortcut. You will see things being promoted that claim to pull in thousands, or even millions, of hits without you having to do anything. Now, there are a few good SEO firms that can get these sorts of results, but you are going to have to pay for it.

Everyone feel free to share your thoughts on this topic.

A great notice on your last paragraph. There are so many splash pages and websites out there that claim instant quality traffic, but there is no such thing as quick success. Everything takes time and patience...and some monetary investment here and there, of course.

I agree that traffic really needs time. I am very interested to know more SEO firms but can't afford to pay as of now.

Malouisa, you do not need an SEO firm. You can easily learn everything you need to get your site ranked. I have followed you back, so feel free to message me and I will help you out. I do this sort of thing all the time. No charge, just trying to lend a hand.

You make a great distinction between the 2 source of traffic, I would like to take it one step further and consider the persistent nature of what you do to generate traffic.

Will this add to my already busy schedule or will it remain active with little or no further interaction on my part.

This is one of the reason I have withdrawn my focus from traffic exchanges and returned to article and other content marketing methods.

Great point Igor. This is one of the reasons I have not been using the TE's much lately either.
