In order to succeed with your online business you need traffic. If you’re like most people starting out, you don’t want to spend money on advertising. You need to know how to get targeted traffic for your website free. There’s a lot of ways to get free traffic but if it’s not targeted at your niche, it won’t do you much good.
Ranking high in the search engines and having your website on page 1 is one of the best ways to go about this. In order to be on page 1 in Google or any other search engine you need to strategically take the time to do your keyword or keyword phrase research. You will also need to produce really interesting content on a regular basis.
Make sure you use keywords or keyword phrases that not only have a high number of searches but are low in competition. At Wealthy Affiliate there is an awesome free keyword tool you can use or you can use Google’s keyword planner or any of the other free keyword tools available. Just do a search for “free keyword tool” and you will come up with many of them.
It’s also very important that your keyword or phrase makes sense in a sentence. You wouldn’t want to use a keyword like “get traffic your website”. Instead you would want to use “get traffic for your website”. That is just an example. You will have to search to find something that fits the particular page/post you’re writing. Then make sure to use the keyword or phrase in the title of your page/post and somewhere in the first paragraph. Do not over use your keyword because that’s called “keyword stuffing” and Google does not like it.
How To Get Free Targeted Traffic
- If your website is about painting or crafts, then you need to find out where the people are hanging out online that are interested in that. Get involved in the community of people that make up that niche. Find the best websites, blogs, and forums. Answer questions people may have and leave a link to your website.
- If you’re recruiting people who want to work from home and you want to place a free classified ad in the Business Opportunities section. Don’t search for “Free Classified Ads”. If you do you will get just that…free classified ads. People who are looking for work from home opportunities do not search for free classified ads, they search for work from home opportunities. Do a search of “Work From Home Opportunities” and see what the people who are searching for that will get and that’s where you want to place your ads, answer questions, and become the authority on your subject.
- If you want to put your post on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ join some groups in your niche and post there. You will get a lot more action then if you just post to the general public. Find someone successful in that niche and target the people following that niche. Connect with the people who are interested in your niche.
- Join online discussion boards and forums in your targeted niche. Just do a search of “your niche” forum or discussion board and you will come up with lots of them to join and answer questions and become the expert that people go to to ask questions. Leave your link but do not spam people. Make sure to read the rules of the site before you start.
- Post ads on Craigslist, Oodle Marketplace, Backpage, Sell.com. Ebay Classifieds, and Geebo .
