Three sites that will increase your web traffic for free!
What good is a website if no one visits? And how do you get traffic to your website without spending a fortune? Getting visitors to your website doesn’t have to be hard and you don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars to find out how to get more traffic. It just involves some common sense.
What do you do when someone wants to visit your house, but doesn’t know where it is? You give them directions to find it. The same applies to your website. You’ve got to tell potential visitors how to find it. The more people you tell, the more people you will have visit.
Below are three places that can increase your website traffic for free. All you have to do is put some elbow grease into it and these websites can help serve as the map to your site.
1. DMOZ. http://www.dmoz.org: If this isn’t your first website, I don’t have to tell you how important it is to be listed in DMOZ. But just in case this is your first trip around the net, you HAVE to be listed in DMOZ. Why? The short version is because a listing with them will ensure listings with others. Go there right now and spend some time looking for the perfect category for your site. Once you’ve found it, click on “suggest URL” and enter your information. DMOZ is selective, so be sure your website is in tip top shape first.
2. Family-Content: http://www.Family-Content.com. The owner of Family Content, Donna Schwartz Mills, is providing a wonderful service to webmasters. Essentially you write a short article on any subject about which you have some knowledge. Whether it’s how to wax a mustache or how to bake bread or how to make a million dollars, everyone has something to write. Spell check your article, check for errors in grammar and most importantly, add a resource box at the end. Once you submit your article to Family Content other webmasters are allowed to use your content for free in their websites or ezines so long as they keep your resource box intact. Every person that reads your article… and that can amount to A LOT…will also have the opportunity to visit your website. Not sure what a resource box is? You’ll see mine at the end of this article.
3. The Business Owner’s Idea Cafe: http://www.IdeaCafe.com.
This is one of the best sites for small business owners and people who hope to someday be small business owners on the net. They’ve been mentioned in everything from The Wall Street Journal to Business Week to USA Today. The Business Owner’s Idea Cafe can help you increase traffic to your site for free in two ways.
First of all, they have a vast message board of sorts that covers a variety of topics. Search the boards, called Cyberschmooz, to find a topic to which you have something to contribute. Write a well thought out reply and as you should already be in the practice of doing whenever you post to any message board, add a link to your website after your name.
If you’ve been in business over six months, you should also submit your “biz profile” in their “Biz Celebrities” section. If you’re accepted, your website will be prominently displayed on the front page of their site along with a story about you and what you do. It’s not easy to get listed and for goodness sake, don’t try to submit your business the very first time you visit their site. But, once you’ve become familiar with who they are, what they do and what they are looking for, you have a shot.
There you have it. Three places you can visit on the Internet that can dramatically increase the traffic to your website completely free. You can start right now and before you know it, you’ll see a jump in the number of visitors to your website. What are you waiting for? Get busy!
