So you are looking to increase your free traffic to your website, but find you are struggling with just how to do this. Ironically, and far too often, the most obvious and easiest to use are overlooked. That is the case with forums and blogs – both can be invaluable tools that can provide you with real value in increasing your traffic.
You can visit online discussion forums, and there are many, where people from your target market tend to gather and hang out. Once there you can post responses to questions that are useful and helpful. With that you can include a link to your site with your name at the end of your post. A great way to drive more traffic to your site.
Ultimately, you will want to setup a signature file with a link to your site so that it can be seen as often as possible. This is quicker and more effective than adding it to each post. Do not over post because if you do, you will lose respect and others will choose not to visit your site. You will completely destroy any of the benefits of forum posting.
You can also post to other peoples blogs. Leave comments regularly and make sure your website link is always visible when you post. It works the same way as your posts do to forums and here too you want to make sure that you do not over post and annoy others. There are an endless array of blogs available so follow several. It will give you more posting opportunities.
Bottom line – anywhere you can get your information out there and a link to your website take advantage of it and watch your traffic grow – best of all it’s free!
