    Is it possible to get free traffic to your website? Yes! Not only is it possible, but you can also get tons of targeted traffic.

    Using free traffic methods, you can expose your website or product by millions of people. Connecting with people who are looking for you is the challenge at hand.

    The following are 5 ways of getting free traffic to your very own website!

    Tip #1 – Content And Distribution

    The more you share, the more traffic you will get. Submit articles to sites like eZines which will use and distribute your article. Try Youtube a give also! The more distribution, the more traffic!

    Tip#2 - “SEO Traffic”

    Search engine optimization is probably the most popular and best way to get consistent targeted traffic to your website. The only problem here is getting a good ranking! Check my other posts if want more info on how.

    Tip #3 - Online Communities

    Community websites are great as a free traffic source. By actively participating in discussions online you can drive a lot of traffic to your website. People participating in forums share many of the same problems. To be a part of the community in your niche would mean that you can share knowledge, learn, and stay motivated. You can be of service to others, and get plenty of traffic in return.

    Tip#4 – Start Squidoo

    As a marketer, squidoo will come in handy. It is loved by Google when it comes to search engine rankings. Anyone can post topics of their choosing on squidoo and the fast paced search engine results can drive in loads of traffic.

    Tip #5 – Craigslist

    With Craiglist, you can post up ads for free. Google loves Craigslist and your ads can be indexed within about twenty-four hours. Not only should you expect to see search engine results, but views from the many millions of visitors that visit Craiglist everyday.

    Thank You! Very good insights.
    I would add press releases to your list. PRLog is a great place to write and post press releases. Find a current topic and participate by sharing your expertise on that specific niche / subject.

    Hey - really helpful tips!

    As for craiglist - there are some guidelines - how to submit your ads.
    First of all - its really important to make the title stand out.
    You can achieve that by using special ascii characters like for example this one:
    ▌███▌► Your Ad Title
    ► Your Ad Title◄
    ☆ Your Ad Title ☆
    There is a blog - with ascii character you can copy to your site: http://postingoncraigslist.blogspot.com/2008/01/using-extended-ascii-codes.html

    The title should be short and really encouraging. (Again it needs to stand out)

    As for the ad itself - i found that a good way of posting ads is using image links.

    The process is as follows:

    first you need to upload your ad banner/picture on your server somewhere.

    Then you write html code:
    <a href="link to whatever you are advertising">
    <img border="0" img src="link to your image/banner/advertisment"></a>

    You can paste this code into the body of your ad.

    Also you can add some text describing why a person should click
    on the picture/ what exactly do you offer.

    Also feel free to use bold and capitalised words.

    You will be able to post max 3 ads a day, try to use different title for each one, otherwise
    craigslist might not allow you to post.

    Hope that helps a bit

    I used mostly SEO, Craigslist, Content & distribution but business Listing is more important in different search engine. we can listing our business in Online Yellow pages is also effective for new Local Business.

    Craigs List is a huge classified ads website, you can view it at http://craigslist.org and you can read about it here on Wikipedia.

    This is some good advice. I do think that if you have interesting content you can really get far. And changing the content or adding new will get more traffic to your site for sure.

    Catherine, I think you are right to be concerned of the possible negative consequences that could arise from doing link exchanges. Google says;

    My opinion is that a little link exchange with sites that are related to yours and that some way complement your site, will probably help, but don't over do it and don't do anything that appears unnatural.

    Also three way link exchange is something to consider, e.g. if you own Site A, you place a link on Site A to Site B and in return the owner of Site B places a link from Site C to your Site A. This way the sites aren't exchanging links directly.
