Default Top 5 Ways To Generate Low Cost Website Traffic

There is one hard and fast rule in generating income for your website: A steady flow of website traffic. If no one goes to your site, it hardly bares a chance of generating an income. Many sites have tried and failed in doing so, and these results to the sites demise. It takes money to maintain an income generating site; it also takes money to make money.

BUT, it doesnít take a whole caboodle of cash to generate website traffic for your site.

Ever wonder how does big hit sites drive traffic top their site? Most of them are spending tons of money to drive the traffic to their sites, investing in many advertising campaigns and different forms of marketing schemes and gimmickries. This is all worthwhile because, well, they are what they are now, high earning, big hitting websites.

You donít have to do this if you donít really have their resources. There are many ways to generate low cost website traffic without having to spend what you donít have or canít afford. Many people have banked on high cost methods and have ended up losing their shirt over it.

Here I present to you the Top five ways to generate low cost website traffic that could help your site a whole lot. Even if you only get a small percentage of successful visitors in to client ratio it still works especially if you get a high number of website traffic.

Exchange Links

This is a sure and proven method. Rarely would you see a site where there is no link to another site. Many webmasters are willing to exchange links with one another so that they could produce more public awareness about their sites. Youíll soon see and feel the sudden upsurge of the traffic coming in to your site from other sites.

A major prerequisite in exchanging links with other sites is having the same niche or content as the other site. They should share a common subject so that there is continuity in the providing of service and information to what interests your target traffic.

Exchanging links also boosts your chances of getting a high ranking in search engine results. It is common knowledge that search engines ranks high sites that have inbound and outbound theme-related links. With a good ranking position in the search engines, you will generate more traffic in your website without the high costs.

Traffic Exchange


This is like exchanging links but on a different higher level. This may cost a bit more than exchanging or trading links but could be made cheaper because you get to earn credits. You can use those credits when viewing others traffic, while you earn credits when someone views yours.

Traffic exchange services are the viewing of anotherís site or page. This is done vice versa where a site can use your sites contents and so can you to his or her site. You both benefit from each others efforts to generate traffic. The other sites visitors can go to your pages and know more about your site as well as theirs. Once again the public awareness of your sites existence is boosted.

Write and Submit Articles


There are many e-zines and online encyclopedias in the internet which provides free space for articles to be submitted. If you want to save costs, you can do the articles yourself. There are many freelance writers who are willing to write for you for a small fee, but to save money, it is wise to do those articles yourself.

Write articles that are themed along with the niche of your site. Write something that you have expertise on so that when they read it, they can feel your knowledge about the subject and will be eager to go to your site. Write articles that produce tips and guidelines to the subject or niche your site has.

Include a resource box at the end of your article that can link them to your site. Write a little about yourself and your site. If you provide a light, information-laden and interesting article, they will go to your site for more.

Make a Newsletter.

This may sound like hard work because of all the articles you may need to use to build a newsletter but on the contrary, this is not so. There are many writers and sites that are willing to provide free articles as long as they can get their name in on your newsletter. This will also provide free advertising for them as well.

As your newsletter gets pass around, you can widen your public awareness and build an opt-in list that can regularly visit your site.

Join Online Communities and Forums-
Marketing Forums Is One Of The Best

This only requires your time and nothing else. You can share your knowledge and expertise with many online communities as well as your website. You can get free advertising when you go to forums that have the same subject or niche with your site.

Share your two cents and let them see how knowledgeable you are with the subject. As you build your reputation, you also build the reputation of your site, making it a reputable and honest business that could be frequented and trusted by many people.

Thanks For Reading This,
Talk To You Soon,

Those are some great tips for sure. Although, I've heard that Google's spider doesn't really react to link exchanges that well. At Cyan Solutions (an Ottawa marketing firm), web marketing and search engine optimization are key components of what they offer their clients.

These are great tips. I think I will apply some of your tips to my squidoo or to my lens since squidoo can also help you earn money. That is if you have a great lens. Hope this will work!

Link Exchange is not a good way to improve the traffic of your website. It is use for only quality backlinks. In Link Exchange, you exchange your links with other websites and the only same website visit your website so that they are not helpful for increase the huge traffic of your website.

Writing articles is a great way to get more traffic, but it is time consuming. I do not use article spinners, because I do not like what they spit out sometimes and google feels the same way. They like original content.

I like to take my blog posts and write a summary of them and then submit them to article directories with a link back to the original post. That seems to work well, but it does take time, but all great things do.

I've been hearing about the Google Panda and Google new algorithm since last winter. It seems G is putting more emphasis on link quality than ever. Will link exchange be counted as "low quality" links?

Came across an article on "unnatural backlinks, Google's cracking down". With the Unnatural Links update, Google has made it clear that backlink quality is of paramount importance. The Google algorithm has been modified to detect ***8211; and devalue ***8211; low-quality links, or links that are determined to be spammy or paid for.

Many SEO experts believe Google is going one step further and actually penalizing sites with links that are determined to be ***8220;unnatural,***8221; because some sites appear to be ranking lower than they would if they had no backlinks at all.
