Traffic Generation At Low Cost

Make money with Ads by Google

By Desmond Mantor 2006

This article presents some free ways to increase traffic flow to your website and get more qualified visitors.

So, you have a killer website that you are just certain will become the next Yahoo or Google if only you could get people to actually visit your site. The only problem is that you don't have the money to spend on pay-per-click programs or software for e-mailing campaigns.

As things stand, your site doesn't even rank in the first ten pages of search results and it is starting to look like your great idea may die a miserable and lonely death. Before you throw in the towel, consider this:

The truth is that you don't need money but effort to be ranked first in the search engines. You need to do your homework.

1. Study The Competiton
Start by studying your competition. Find out what is the secret of the people who rank first. Study their keyword density formula, the sites they are link to, and meta tag usage. It is not easy.

2. Keyword Density
You will have to change one variable at a time to see what difference it makes. Begin with finding the right keyword density formula. When you find one that works, use this formula to generate a lot of useful content. You will not get it perfect. Nobody does. So, don't worry. Focus on boosting your rankings and then generate the content.

Keyword rich content is certainly the best way to boost your rankings. The other important method is linking to poplar sites.

3. Reciprocal Linking
Linking with other popular sites makes the search engines presume that your site is also pretty important. Other webmasters will be interested in linking to your site if you can provide content that is both useful and relevant.

All the more reason to get the keyword density formula right first and generate relevant content so you can convince other webmasters to link to your site. Once you have great content on your site, start linking to other sites. Some sites allow you to link manually without permission. The more popular sites will require you to write to their webmasters requesting permission.

The bottom-line is simple: the more links you have with popular sites, the higher your search engine rankings will climb!

4. Yahoo Classifieds (only available to USA residents)
Another great way to generate traffic flow without spending is using Yahoo classifieds. Yahoo has millions of visitors from all over the world every day, and your ad is sure to get noticed. You are allowed to post up to 10 ads at a time absolutely free of charge. The trick is to write compelling, attention-grabbing copy. You will achieve success if you are willing to experiment.

While search engine rankings are more useful than online classifieds, these ads especially the popular Yahoo classifieds can provide a great start totally free!


Of course, there is nothing to match the search engines to generate traffic flow. Almost 90% of all surfers use search engines to find what they are looking for. That explains why you have to win them over in order to succeed online.

In a nutshell, you need to study your competition, devise a good keyword density formula, and then use it to create a lot of compelling and useful content. Then you can link up with other sites to climb the ranking ladder right up to success!
