How To Get Free Traffic To Your Website Or Blog


Free traffic… we all dream about it. Millions of people coming to your website, clicking on every monetized offer you have, you making thousands of dollars a day while you sip margaritas on the beach in San Tropez…

And now, (the sound of a needle scratching across a record), real life sets in! Okay, okay. It doesn’t just happen that way, but it can. It’s a lot of hard work. Grinding away day after day.

Here’s the real deal for getting free traffic to your website or blog…

1) Work every day doing posts on as many social media accounts you have. Pinterest and twitter are great, but use as many as you have time for. Create a buzz. Be different. Post often. Wait. It takes time. Chances are you won’t go viral overnight, so the turtle will win the race. It’s not a sprint.

2) Go to Google for information. Looking for what’s hot? What is everyone typing in to Google and searching for the most right now? Go to Google and type in, “Google what hot links”. Google gives you free information on the most searched for keywords/topics over time. Type in “Google trends”. Use AdWords Google keyword tool, type in Google “keywords tool” to look up words/keywords and how often are they used per month.

3) Incorporate keywords into your title, heading using h1, and down in the pages. Example: Title of my elephant site, after looking in Google keywords and finding out the phrase searched the most each month, “Elephants are like Humans”. Then, in your first line on your page, use headline size h1 to reiterate this, type it in again, “Elephants are like Humans”. Try to mention it several times within your page, but don’t get spammy. Google loves “like” content, but hates word spamming.

4) If you have picture on your page, make sure to fill in the ALT tags that let you put a brief description of your picture. Use this to your advantage. Don’t just put, “Elephant pic”. Write it more descriptive of the content of your page. Something like, “Elephants acting human”, throwing in the keywords ‘elephant’ and ‘human’.

5) Try not to go off subject too much. Stick with elephants acting human without side bars talking about elephant feed or bananas and how they’re grown. Too much extra blah, blah, blah.

6) Google always likes to see articles of at least 500 words. Squeeze pages/landing pages are hard to rank, usually because there is so little content on them.
