Top Ways To Get Free Website Traffic

Traffic is the critical ingredient in every successful online marketing strategy, but not just any traffic will do: you need targeted traffic.

Here are some highlights to inform you or inspire you (or both!) from one of the top ways to get free website traffic, explained in the eBook, The TOP 25 Ways to Get FREE Website Traffic.


Free Traffic Through Guest Blogging

Guest blogging involves you providing a unique piece of content to another blog owner and giving them the rights to post it on their site. You will have the greatest success in making this arrangement with a blog owner if you assure him or her that your article is 100% unique and written for their blog only.

Once your guest blog is posted, you will get recognition as the author, a link back to your website and, depending on how popular the owner’s blog is, new visitors to your website.

Since your aim always is to get targeted traffic, it stands to reason that when looking for blogs to offer your services as a guest blogger, you chose only blogs that closely relate to your market niche.

Not every blog owner is interested in allowing guest bloggers, but if you keep knocking on doors, you will end up with some valuable links and additional traffic.

There is a debate in some circles as to whether or not a marketer should allow Guest Blogging on their websites.

Some consider it competition that might send visitors away from their website. Others recognize the value that useful information has in attracting repeat visitors.

For SEO purposes, it is good to add regular content that is closely focused on the marketing theme or niche of the site.

What do YOU think about Guest Blogging? Do you do it on other sites? Do you allow it on yours?

What are your rules or guidelines for allowing Guest Bloggers on your site?

Another angle on Guest Blogging might be to form a group with some fellow Internet Marketers and take turns providing blog content for each other.

You might set up a schedule where you can have a new post on your blog everyday - a few provided by your circle of associates and a few you write and post on your site yourself. And then you can return the favour by writing one or two Guest posts each week or each month to be posted on their sites.

When you write Guest Blogs, as with blogs and content for your own website, you should choose keywords best suited for the site you are writing for. Your aim is to add quality to that site so the visitors enjoy the site and will hopefully remember you.

More importantly, so they will appreciate what you have written and will be motivated to click the link to your site.

If you write keyword-focused posts, you will attract targeted traffic to your site. That is why it is so important to choose blog sites that are very closely related in theme or niche to your own.

What kind of article should you write for a Guest Blog?

Well, you want to be informative and you want to show yourself as an expert in the field that you are writing about, so how about a "How To" article?

Choose a topic that you are knowledgeable and experienced with. Right up front, tell the reader what the subject is and what they will learn or gain from the article.

Write with authority, but keep your style simple and your instructions clear. Start at the beginning of the "how-to" topic and lead your readers through the process step by step. Try to imagine doing it yourself for the first time and explain it as though the reader knows nothing about 'how to' do it.

Close the article with a word of encouragement to the reader to now follow the steps and try it for themselves.

How-To articles are popular with both blog owners and readers, so it is a good format to use for Guest Blogging.

It has been mentioned before, but one of the biggest challenges for website owners is coming up with fresh, new content on a frequent basis, and this is good for YOU if you can write reasonably well and are looking for Guest Blogging opportunities.

Your challenge is to research and find suitable sites on which to offer your Guest Blogging services. As previously noted, you should only do it on sites very similar to yours and your posts should be exclusive to that site.

If you need topic ideas, just look at the site where you will submit a Guest Post and write about something you see there - a marketing concept, a resource, some industry news...

If you take a few minutes to review the site, you should be able to come up with some topic ideas.

Guest Blogging, when you can find willing website owners to accommodate you, can be especially important and valuable in today's climate of increasingly analytical search engine algorithms.

You need backlinks, but you very much need a wide variety of types of backlinks from various websites. Guest Blogging is perfect because it covers all the key points:

- You get a link on a RELATED website;

- The content you post is UNIQUE to that site;

- You can write the post according to the KEYWORD PHRASE of your choice, meaning you can point the backlink to the page on your site that is OPTIMIZED for that phrase.

Also, by being featured as a Guest Writer, you further enhance your brand and your image as a respected expert in your niche.

Many Internet Marketers have taken a big traffic hit this year thanks to massive search engine updates. As a result, many are looking for ways to get traffic without depending on the search engines.

Guest blogging is still one way to build your online presence, but has the nature of guest blogging changed as website owners try to adapt to the search engine changes?

Do you allow or encourage guest blogging on your website or blog? If you do, what guidelines do have for potential guest bloggers?

The world of SEO (search engine optimization) continues to be shaken up with all of the algorithm updates, etc., and this has affected the way marketers approach Article Marketing as well.

So ... that creates even more value and opportunity for Guest Blogging! As long as you create unique blog posts for specific sites and you don't post them anywhere else. The more substance and quality you can add to your posts, the more value they will have to website owners and the stronger your reputation will become as a preferred guest Blogger.

Hey, it's worth working on, isn't it?
