We all know that the most important part of becoming a successful blogger and to monetize your site effectively is to get traffic. If you are into affiliate marketing then it is a must for you to get targeted traffic to your blog because only targeted traffic can bring you sales/revenue. Since generating traffic is not a child’s game so today i share with you some tips on how to get targeted traffic to your blog absolutely free.
Since the traffic sources are free so you need to put a little effort to reap something out from those. Here are few free targeted traffic sources :-
- Video Sharing Sites
Video sharing sites such as youtube and metacafe are a great source of targeted traffic. Traffic can be generated by commenting on videos similar to your blog niche and putting your blog link in the signatures. Thus interested people may come to your blog but you must keep in mind that the video you comment on should be high on popularity stats and related to your blog niche. One other way is to compose your own video (something original and appealing) according to your niche so that people can come straight to your blog. We all know the capability of these sites and if a video becomes popular it can bring you the desired amount of traffic to your blog.
- Article Marketing
This is also a great source of getting quality traffic to your blog. In this method you have to submit quality articles (relevant to your niche) to popular article sites like EzineArticles, GoArticles, ArticalBase, etc. Once your article is approved half of your work is done because these sites get a lot of visitors daily which will be directed to your blog itself if you have written something effective enough. But you must keep in mind that your article should be original and interest building. Its a bit like Guest Posting since you write for someone else to get traffic to your blog.
- Yahoo Answers
This is probably the most easy way to get targeted traffic and quality backlinks. In yahoo answers you have to answer queries of other people, maybe on any topic. You earn points on answering the questions and you get to place your link (source of your answer) in your answer. And if your answer is chosen as the best then you get extra reward points. This technique gives you a lot of exposure, bringing your answers and blog in front of other people. And you also get high quality backlinks by this technique.
- Forum Marketing
This is also a nice way to get good traffic to your website as participating in various forums via threads and comments give you a lot of exposure. This participation also lets you make a lot of new business links and you get to know a lot of new marketing as well as SEO tips. I joined warriorforum recently and i am glad to tell that i have learnt a lot of SEO, Adsense ,Twitter, etc optimization and marketing tips. When you participate in forums via threads interested people contact you voluntarily and sometimes give you solutions and suggestions that really help.
P.S :- As free traffic generation requires a large amount of time, I strongly recommend you to outsource your activities so as to focus on other money making ways and make your time. You need to do a lot of experiment with all of these techniques to select the optimal one. And get the same outsourced with professionals for better results and to concentrate better on other things.
