Talk to almost anybody in the field of Internet Marketing and they will tell you that one of the biggest challenges facing most marketers, especially new marketers, is getting traffic to their home business website. If you know how, there’s a ton of ways to do it. Here are 3 quick ways to get free traffic to your website.
By the way, I learned these three free traffic methods (and many more) from my marketing mentors and the first thing they taught me was to take action every day to build my Internet home business. “Even if you only have half an hour each day, you should choose at least one recommended traffic tip and apply it,” they said. The key is to do something every day.
1) Get a Backlink and exposure on a High PR Website
Getting good backlinks to your website helps to increase the search engine rank of your site. The higher the PR on the site you are getting a backlink from, the better it is for your site.
eHow.com (PR8) is an online community that offers more than 1.5 million articles and 150,000 videos covering a wide variety of topics. This content is provided by a combination of experts and regular people.
Here’s how to get a backlink: Visit eHow.com, register as a member, log in and edit your profile. Fill in whatever details you would like, but be sure to include your website URL in the Web Site box. Also, enter a few details into the “About Me” box. Include your URL in the “About Me” box and if you know how, use your keywords in the anchor text. After you click the button to save your info, check your public profile to make sure everything looks good.
That’s it. You will get a high quality backlink and you may get traffic from other eHow.com members.
2) Participate in Yahoo Answers
When you answer questions on Yahoo Answers, you can leave a link to your website. This won’t give you a backlink, but it does give you exposure, and if your answer is well thought out, readers will be motivated to visit your website to see what else you have to offer.
Visit Yahoo Answers and log in or sign up. Fill in your profile. Be sure to include links to your website or blog. Next, go to the Yahoo Answers Home page and search for questions you can answer, related to the topic or theme of your website.
Once you have found relevant questions, choose two to answer using examples, references or insight from your own experience. Include a link to your website in the “sources” box.
3) Visit AddThis.com and add a bookmark button to your website
Most home business websites and blogs already have bookmark buttons these days and those that don’t should. If you have a WordPress blog, you can also check your WordPress plugins for this button.
The benefit to doing this is it makes it easy for your visitors to bookmark and share your content. When they do, it will help to send more free traffic to your site!
These 3 quick ways to get free traffic are nothing new. But I am always surprised at how many people have not heard of some of the free traffic methods that many experienced Internet Marketers take for granted.
