5 Steps To Generate Low Cost Website Traffic
Copyright 2006 Joshua Spaulding

Ever wonder how big sites get their traffic? 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 gimmicks. This is
all worthwhile because, well, they are what they are, high
earning, big hitting websites.

You don't have to do this if you don't really have these
types of resources. There are many ways to generate low
cost website traffic without having to spend what you don't
have or can't 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 into 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. You'll 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 another's 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

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.

Publishing an Authors Article on your website after stripping their links out is a crime. Not only is it illegal, your site can be removed from googles index.
