1 Traffic - A Webmaster's Dream Or Nightmare
If you run a website, you need traffic. Not just any traffic, but quality, targeted
There are literally millions of frustrated website owners waiting endlessly for that
elusive flood of visitors to their websites.
Let me ask you one question. How many potential visitors are finding YOUR
website? More websites are created each day leading to an upsurge of over
crowding, and all are in competition for the coveted visitors.
The Internet is a treasure house of information. It is peddled in all forms. Smart
marketers soon realized that there is only one sure way to convince the search
engines not to shut them down, and that is to give only Quality Content! Not only
do the search engines love content, but visitors do too, and visitors buy.
So how do you harness the power of content? Specifically, how do you attract
traffic using content?
There are 22 time-tested surefire ways to get all the traffic you need.
Towards the end of this report, I've also included some special unconventional
traffic generation methods, which can complement the 22 techniques.
2 22 Traffic Generating Techniques Explained
Before planning and executing your assault plan to capture that elusive targeted
traffic, you need to know one thing first:
Tracking your traffic is crucial!
It is absolutely necessary to track the traffic from various sources. If not, you are
shooting in the dark, spending your valuable time, effort and money in the wrong
You need to know exactly which traffic source is bringing you results, and which is
not. You can shift your focus to those that are bringing you traffic, and improve or
even drop those that are not.
There are two ways to track your traffic campaigns:
a) Using an online web-based service such as Clickalyzer, where you pay a
monthly subscription. Among the online ad tracking services, Clickalyzer is
one of the most popular options.
b) Using an ad tracking software installed on your server, a one-time investment
with no monthly fees. The one I'm using and would highly recommend is
Adtrackz . You have more control, and you can do split testing, cloaking,
dynamic code creation, plus a host of other features and benefits.
Set up your tracking / ad tracking system first, before you launch head on into your
2.1 Pay Per Click
PPC is advertising provided by the search engine providers (Google, Yahoo! and
others) where you PAY for top placement. Their strategies for placement differ
In either case, you pay. Especially for a newly launched site, it is a quick way to get
your traffic flowing – but it is not the cheapest. You could spend far more than is
profitable for your business if you don’t know what you’re doing.
Despite some people dismissing PPC advertising for its "higher" cost, it is still
widely used by many top Internet marketers, as the traffic is highly targeted (which
depends on how well your PPC ad is written).
Use proven advertising copy words like “how to…” “learn”, “save”, “free”
and “easy” in your description. Create curiosity and provide enough specific
information or you will attract under-qualified traffic.
Figure out the statistics of how many customers you need to make a sale. Based on
that figure you can work out how much you are willing to spend to attract
customers through pay per click
I'd like to share 4 golden tips that many people are not aware of, which cost them
dearly in the PPC game:
Make sure that your ad has the right keywords so that you can drive laser traffic to
your site. Always include all 3 variations: broad match, phrase match, and exact match.
This will triple your keyword list, but more importantly, you can capture lower cost
Don't lump all your keywords into one big group. Divide into tightly-related groups of
10-30 similar terms, and design ads matching the common words in the keyword
Always have two ads for each campaign group, to allow split testing. Vary only one
word between the ads. Monitor their click-through rate (CTR). Delete the one with
lower CTR, and write a new one. This way, your ads are continually improving in
Some people spend top dollars just to attain the top position in their ad listing.
Statistically, it is found that No. 2 or 3 position get better sales conversion than
the coveted No. 1 spot. Interesting huh?
If you have had some experience using PPC advertising, the above tips should make
some sense to you.
There are many more PPC strategies and tricks which cannot be covered in this
report, but there's a Definitive Guide on Google Adwords by Perry Marshall you
should consider getting.
Other than Google and Yahoo, you should also not neglect the smaller ones, like
Kanoodle and others (there are more than 500 PPC search engines). These still give
you some traffic, and usually at a lower cost.

2.2 Search Engine Optimization
Traffic that comes from search engines seems an overwhelmingly attractive option, as
it is free. Well, it's not really "free", as you need to spend considerable amount of your
valuable time tweaking your websites to get the results you want. Additionally, you
are at the mercy of search engines, and their frequent algorithm change can knock you
out of business overnight.
There are a lot of companies working ‘behind the scenes’ to help website owners get
plenty of traffic from the natural search engine listings. Natural listings mean the
search engine has ranked you according to the value it believes your site will offer
someone searching for a specific word or phrase.
Understanding exactly what the search engines want to see when ranking sites
requires knowledge of the algorithms. These algorithms change all the time.
Be careful here. Don't ever rely solely on SEO to bring you traffic. You need to
utilize all forms of traffic sources, not just SEO, if you want to sustain your online
Broadly speaking, there are two main areas for SEO:
a) On-page optimization
b) Off-page optimization
On-page refers to having your primary keyword (or keyphrase) in the meta tags (title,
description), as well as in the content (3-7% keyword density). Don’t try to optimize
more than 2 keywords per web page. Stick to one primary keyword per page if you
This used to be enough to get a high SEO ranking, but is no longer so. More emphasis
is now placed on off-page factors.
There are actually a lot to cover on SEO (on page and off page), and here's a good free
book you can read: SEO Made Easy by Brad Callen.
This generally means getting the right kind of incoming links (or backlinks) to your
website, with your keyword in the anchor text. It can be acquired through article
submission, press releases, reciprocal link exchange etc.
Just remember this:
"You do not need to beat the search engine, you just need to
beat the number-one-ranked website"
Simply put, you need to "spy" on the competition, and do one step better than them.
One powerful software that can do this is SEO Elite, which focuses on improving
your off-page factors.
2.3 Keyword Research
Keywords have always been important to search engines. In fact understanding and
doing keyword research is key to many successful websites. However, filling a
page with keywords will NOT get you a good rating with the search engines, but
writing content that uses popular search words WILL.
By researching the popular keywords for your topic or product, you can create
information that places these words into the background of an article then simply
optimize each page for a separate keyword that you wish to use.
There are numerous keyword research software available, but the one that stands
out is The Dowser, which has a free version. Another free and popular
Windows-based keyword software is Good Keywords.
2.4 Web Pages
Websites need pages. The more, the better, but having a website filled with
keyword-filled pages, or styled templates will not impress the search engines or
your visitors. Instead -- create a feeding ground for them. .
Slowly but steadily adding pages of real content will help your site attract the
search engine spiders on a regular basis. This is the ‘tortoise wins the race’
One way is to add articles regularly. You can find relevant articles from article
directories, and put on your website (with the author's resource box intact of
course). Some of the major article directories are:
• Article City
• Article Emporium
• Article Factory
• Article Hub
• Content Desk
• Ezine Articles
• Free Content
• Go Articles
• Reprint Articles
Have you heard that ‘the money is in the list’? One guess as to which list?
Your SUBSCRIBER list. Yes, with close to 80% of sales taking place after the
first 5 to 7 contacts it is imperative that every website has a newsletter when
But to have a newsletter… again you must have content! So start putting some
ideas together and write those newsletters.
Your subscribers will judge you based on the value of the content you send. If you
only advertise without giving beneficial information for free, your subscribers are
Develop a series of brief, but informative articles. In fact, it is increasingly popular
to have just a short email message, with an introduction to direct them to your site
for further information. Getting your subscribers back to your site should be the
primary objective. This also helps your email get through the aggressive email
spam filters which sometimes traps long emails.
Having spent time building your autoresponder messages, you need a reliable
autoresponder service, like the top notch Aweber. It is the autoresponder service of
choice for many Internet marketers.
2.6 Free Reports - Viral Marketing
Free reports are also a great way to attract subscribers to your newsletter. These
reports can spread quickly (on related websites) with the link you placed within it
tempting them back to YOUR website. You get the traffic that follows!
Include as a subscription bonus to entice hesitant visitors to sign up for your
Identify a problem, or question that might attract your visitors. Write a two or three
page report that gives a partial solution. Indicate your product or service as part of
the solution, but do not necessarily make it sound like an advertisement.
Example: ‘Men love camping trips, but women hate them with good reason, and
oddly enough -- it is for the same reason’.
To create your report you can provide more details to your service than is listed on
your web page (ie: ‘Find out how YOU can save money on home repairs with this
special report’). You might also try one that warns of a danger (‘Are you putting
YOUR family at risk? Find out with this special report’).
Send the report via an autoresponder or manually as soon as possible so they
remember to open their email.
2.7 Submission To Article Directories
By writing short articles on the topic related to your website, you can offer these
articles by submitting them to an article directory.
These directories get spidered by the search engines on a regular basis because of
the high value of the content they provide. If the search engines have not yet picked
you up this is the easiest way to get them to find you.
When others make use of your articles you will get the credit as the author along
with a link to your website. Not only will you gain visitors, but also you will benefit
from the backlinks that are created. And make no mistake here – those links are
gold in terms of search engine ranking.
To get the most of your article submission, here are some article writing strategies
you can use:
a) Start keyword research. Choose a keyword with enough searches (minimum 100
searches per day), and less competition (< 1million, using quotes).
b) Sprinkle the keyword (3-7% density) throughout the article. Start article title with
the keyword if possible.
c) In resource box, write some appealing stuff, with a link (anchored with your
keyword) to your website. You should also include a non-hyperlinked URL (just
in case a particular article directory does not allow HTML linking).
d) Spend time to craft your article title. Your title is like a mini-headline. The title of
your article should be short, simple, and offer a main benefit. Some good examples
are "Quick And Easy Way To ….", "What You Always Wanted To Know
e) Have an interesting opening paragraph. This will spur the reader to read further,
hopefully to the end. You can use a surprise opening, relating a personal
experience, an anecdote, or a story.
Why do you need to put keyword in your article? With that one keyword per article,
you are making use of the high pagerank of the article directories (or other sites if your
article is picked up and re-published). Your article will appear high in the search
results for that keyword, giving you an extra visitor boost.
When your article is ready, you can submit to the article directories one by one, or you
can make better use of your valuable time by using two submission methods:
i) Use an online article submission service. There are close to 10 article submission
services, with fees varying widely. One of the more cost effective ones is Article
Marketer, which submits your article to numerous sites, and does not place a limit
on the number of articles you can submit.
ii) If you do not like the idea of a recurring cost, you can invest in an article
submission software, like Article Post Robot. This software stands out above the
rest as it allows you to choose to submit in semi-automatic or fully automatic
2.8 Article Announcement Lists
Article announcement lists are similar to article directories. Your article will be
placed before an audience of webmasters and publishers who may choose to use it.
The advantage of article announcement lists is that the members sign up to receive
new articles by email. Your article will be directly sent to members who have
subscribed to receive it. Yahoo has a ‘Groups’ area where you can browse the lists
and sign up to receive announcements. This creates the perfect audience for your
For Yahoo Groups, if you do not want your inbox to be flooded by other people's
articles, make sure you select "No email - I'll read messages on the web site".
Note: For article submission using Article Marketer or Article Post Robot, the
feature of submitting to mailing groups are included in both methods.
2.9 Submission To Directories
People often confuse directories and search engines. Search engines use spiders or
robots to index websites, while directories use people. Directories tend to have smaller
but cleaner indexes.
Directories are no longer a primary source of traffic. They are, however, an excellent
source of targeted traffic, in addition to having valuable backlinks from authority
Yahoo Directory, Ask Jeeves and DMOZ are among the major directories. Some
directories are free to submit, some are paid. For a list of web directories, Best Web
Directories provides both free and paid listing, with additional information about each
Some directory editors reject sites they consider to be of poor quality. When
submitting to directories, make sure your site is completely functional, and follow
submission guidelines carefully.
Choose the most appropriate category for your site. Choose subcategories over
top-level categories. If you submit to a top-level category even though appropriate
subcategories are available, there's a good chance your submission will be denied.
The website description posted with your URL is a big factor in how your site will
rank once it's listed in the directory. It is very important to do this right the first time. If
you put too much promotional jargon in your description or make it too long, for
example, the editors are sure to change it.
If you want to make better use of your time rather than to submit manually, the
software I use is Submit Equalizer, which submits to multiple directories in a few
clicks. As with all automation tools, use it responsibly so that your submissions will
have the highest chance to get accepted..
2.10 Submission To Relevant Websites
Another beneficial use for articles is to offer them directly to sites you would like to
share readers with. This is not only a great way to gain credibility for your topic,
but will provide useful backlinks all over the Internet. Sometimes you can even
get links from sites that would not agree to a formal link exchange request.
Forums – groups of Internet users that discuss common interests online. They are a
fantastic way to share information. Search for a forum that discusses something
related to your website. Be sure to spend time ‘lurking’.
That means reading the posts and becoming familiar with the style of discussion
and written (and unwritten) rules. Most forums forbid spamming. What is
considered spam by one forum is perfectly acceptable by another, but blatant
advertising rarely is appreciated.
In most cases you can either post a link to your website in your signature, or share
information that arouses questions about your website from other posters.
Some forums permit you to post your articles. If you are unsure about their policies,
be careful, or you risk upsetting some forumers. Offering free advice can
sometimes be enough to establish credibility, and if you have a blog, or other
non-marketing site you may be able to send traffic to that first, then encourage
visitors to visit your website from the blog.
2.12 Reciprocal Linking
Are you creating reciprocal linking pages to impress the search engines? Create a
separate page for each link category and write 200-400 words of content on that
subject. Offering your recommended links at the end will make you a source for
information… rather than just a bunch of links.
Some may argue that reciprocal linking is losing its effectiveness due to over-use
and abuse by some people, but if done properly, it is still a good way to get
backlinks as well as occasional visitors who click on your link.
Maintaining reciprocal link pages can be time consuming, as well as periodically
checking whether the other parties are still linking back to you. There are two link
exchange software I use:
i) A free version is the Link Management Assistant (by Duncan Carver).
Being free, you have to bear with some limitations and conditions.
ii) Another neat piece of software that I use is Link Machine. This software
installs on your server, up 3 sites. Comparatively, many other link
management software only allows a single site per licence. There are many
interesting features, such as automatic link exchanges among Link Machine
users. This feature alone has saved me lots of time in looking for quality
link partners. Link Machine also allows you to import any existing link
pages you may have.
Be careful about getting involved in link farms or certain link programs, which
promise thousands of links in a few minutes after you insert some code on your
website. This WILL almost certainly get you delisted from the search engines.
It's just not worth the risk.
Originally touted as one of the best methods to get traffic. However, the invasions
of ads by Internet marketers nearly flooded this market. Even so, using classifieds
can still send you some traffic, and will also help your site get listed in the search
engines. Use keyword phrases in your ad, and include a hyperlink. To be effective
what you do is simply place the readers needs within your ad. Become a problem
solver. Just like article writing, crafting a good keyword-rich classified ad also
ensures your ad appears in the search engine results, not just at the classified ad
2.14 Newsletter Exchange
Are you having success with your newsletter? Perhaps you’d like to approach
another website owner and offer to write a short article for his subscribers – or to
exchange articles. If the newsletter is complimentary to their market, they should
2.15 Publish An E-course
Create a multi page tutorial that can be given to subscribers, or given away by other
businesses. Like a report, the e-course can be offered as a freebie. The readers
receive valuable tips and information all while being directed to your site at the end
of each lesson.
2.16 Affiliate Programs
One of the major traffic generators is by recruiting an army of affiliates. These
affiliates work for you for "free", and you pay them only when they make a sale
from the visitors they sent to your site.
The use of affiliates is how Marlon Sanders managed to get 1 in 102 English
speaking Internet users in the world to visit his websites. Now that's 2.8 million
visitors! I read this book - it's good stuff if you plan on building affiliates to market
Help your affiliates drive traffic to your site by giving them letters or reports to post
on their sites or in their newsletters. Your affiliates are also in need of free content
to provide to their customers.
2.17 Your Blog And RSS
Creating a blog that is related to your business or niche will allow you to attract an
audience that may not respond to a sales page. Providing content and news about
your topic with hyperlinks to your various articles, or sales pages, is an indirect
way to send traffic to your site. You can set up a free blog at Blogger.
There have been cases of people losing their Blogger accounts (and the blogs they
painfully built up), as Blogger goes about cleaning up their blogs due to blog
spamming. In the process, innocent blogs get deleted as well.
Another alternative to Blogger is the free Wordpress, which is just as popular.
Building and maintaining one or two blogs is simple enough, but if you want to
build a network of blogs for interlinking purposes, there are tools which can help
make this task easier.
I use Blog Auto Publisher to post to all my blogs, perform scheduled posting, post
from RSS and news feeds, as well as a host of many useful features. In this way, I
can maintain a network of fresh updating blogs, with little work on my part.
Working together with Blog Auto Publisher is Wordpress Elite, another software I
use as a centralized blog management system, from which I can configure and
manage multiple blogs.
With these two powerful software, you can have a network of blogs, constantly
updated, with little work on your part.
RSS and Blog Directories
Once your blog is up and running with some substantial posts, you should consider
submit your blog's RSS feed to blog/RSS directories to get some targeted traffic.
What is your blog's RSS feed, you may ask. A fanciful word, but actually quite
• For Blogger, it is "yourdomain.blogspot.com/atom.xml"
• For Wordpress, it is "yourdomain.com/feed/
There are numerous blogs/RSS directories you can submit to, and I use RSS
Announcer software to make it so much easier.
To get a free copy of RSS Announcer, please use the link at the beginning of this
report and visit my multiple-revenue website for details.
2.18 Other Peoples’ Blogs
Your content can be just as valuable to other bloggers who may have a difficult
time finding content to share with their readers. Offering to submit an article to a
related blog can be a great way to drive traffic to your site with the use of a
hyperlink in your author credit.
2.19 Use Tell-A-Friend Script
When you have good content on your website, and your visitor wants to spread the
word around, you can make it easier with a tell-a-friend form. With a click on your
tell-a-friend link, they can refer your site to their friends. One such free service I use is
2.20 Tag and Ping (Social Bookmarking)
This is a relatively recent strategy. It basically revolves around social bookmarking
websites, that allow its users to bookmark their favorite pages of websites, and
sharing their bookmarks with others. The more people bookmarking a particular
web page, the more "votes" it gets.
When bookmarking a web page, a user can also input tags (keywords) for that web
page, and this site is pinged at the ping servers, hence the phrase tag and ping.
So how does one get traffic to his own websites? Well, there has been a flurry of
webmasters submitting their own websites to these bookmarking sites. As the top
sites are high traffic sites, there will be visitors from these sites, especially if your
site is deemed as "popular" by the number of people bookmarking them.
The benefits of bookmarking your own sites have been the subject of much debate.
While targeted traffic is one of the benefits, the acquiring of backlinks and
pagerank passing are not so clear. Some of the bookmarking sites have imposed a
"no follow" tag (which means the search engine robots will not follow through to
your site), effectively cutting off the pagerank passing. Some of the sites do provide
a direct link to your web pages, so you can enjoy some benefit of backlink and
The tag and ping strategy can be abused, and will be abused. No one knows for sure
how long it will remain effective. There's nothing wrong with submitting their own
web pages, as long as they don't abuse by spamming the social bookmarking sites
with thousands of their own spam pages.
The top sites are Delicious, Technorati and Furl. More are springing up in
popularity and traffic, and there are even available software to install your own
social bookmarking sites. One free software is Scuttle (download from
There are resources to find out more about social bookmarking and how you can
derive maximum benefit from it. One such affordable resource is Tagging Secrets,
where the concept of social bookmarking is described in simple terms, with a
healthy dose of screenshots. It also reveals a little known strategy where you can
literally get instant targeted traffic within minutes of writing a blog post. A quick
action guide is also included, to provide step-by-step instructions to put the newly
learned knowledge into practice.
2.21 Press Release
If you think you are starting to grasp the importance of content, you are going to be
amazed when you see its full potential.
Press releases should become an important part of your marketing. What do you
need to create a press release? Fresh content. That’s it. Press releases are notices to
the media about newsworthy events, accomplishments or information. Creating a
press release to announce a new product, results of a poll, or related news event
results free advertising in the media.
To create your own press release, go to a website like PRWeb (free and paid for
better exposure) and read the releases that are posted there. When you are familiar
with the format you can write your own and submit it. Just avoid advertising copy,
and be sure to highlight some new thought or an angle to make your press
release newsworthy. If you want to you can hire a press release writer, or have
your release reviewed by a PRWeb specialist for a fee.
Alternatively, you may want to invest in an automation software called Press
Equalizer which I use to simplify the submission of press releases to many press
release sites. Through the software, I also learnt the correct way of drafting a good
Press releases can work just as well in your local paper as they do in online news
websites. Submit your press release to the editor or the writer for the section of the
newspaper you want to target.
You could also try to submit your own column, as a free form of advertising.
Smaller newspapers may find this idea more appealing, but larger newspapers
would not be likely to. They have their own staff.
3 All About Content
Some of the SEO methods used in the past that website owners were happy with
was to fill pages with keywords that attracted search engines. But this also turned
visitors off. Too often the content was completely garbled. Now the search engines
are learning to ‘read’ like humans.
If the content has too many keywords and unlikely sentence structures, the search
engine might consider that the site to be manipulated, and not list it.
If you want a site that attracts search engines AND keeps people on your website,
you need to have relevant, informative, well written information . However, when
using methods that are designed to attract search engines, the content still needs to
Generally, the content you provide must satisfy the following criteria:
Your traffic will depend largely on your choice of the right words, by using one of
the keyword research software discussed earlier in the report.
Currently it has been stated that the search engines don’t like duplicate content.
If you are using a template site you will need to change a significant amount of the
information in order to create a site that the search engines will consider as unique.
You can do this by changing your web page title, meta tags, introducing paragraph
and by inserting links, or editorial blocks within the article’s body.
If you have private label articles, you'd need to modify it to make it "unique". You
can either spend time to do it manually, or use a software called Content Rewriter
Pro which I use to modify thousands of my PLR articles in a short time.
Getting traffic is not valuable to you if people leave your site right away. Providing
informative content is not only more beneficial to your visitors, it is important to
‘smarter’ search engines, which also pick up on the content.
Keeping to a theme will help your website both with the search engines and
Amount of Content
Keep information pages short (400-800 words) or the search engines may not
‘read’ all the way through. Creating many web pages and optimizing the content
and the web page will allow you to target more keywords then if you try to cram
them all onto one page.
Be careful when using automation software which creates hundreds or thousands of
web pages automatically. Creating content for each page is important and many of
these programs create cookie-cutter sites that are simply keyword-rich without any
real content. With many individuals using the same programs the search engines
can read the ‘finger print’ and may consider the web pages to be invalid for
inclusion in the search engine.
4 But Where Can You GET Content?
There are three main sources for you to get the content you need.
• Write it Yourself
• Hire a Ghostwriter
• Get articles with private label rights
There are pros and cons to each source, but by using a combination of sources you
can accumulate a well-rounded body of content for your use. Here are some of the
points to consider when using the different methods for creating content.
Remember, what works best for you will depend on your level of writing ability,
what the content will be used for, and your budget.
4.1 Write it Yourself
Writing content yourself is not only the least expensive method, but allows you to
inflect your personality into the content. This can be very useful in attracting a
loyal customer, especially through newsletters and articles.
If you are planning on writing your own content, where do you start?
Create a Draft
By preparing a draft you will not need to worry about whether you remembered to
cover all of the points that you originally wished to covey. You may only need a
few words or brief sentences for your draft. They are easy, but vital.
Make it Clear
When you’ve finished your first draft you will need to read it over from start to
finish and make notations of areas that need clarification or rewording.
Accuracy and Proofreading
When your writing is finished it is important to check it for accuracy. Are dates,
statistics or facts accurate? Are you using proper spelling, especially for names and
places? People do appreciate their name spelled properly.
4.2 Hire a Ghostwriter
When you need more than just a little assistance, whether it’s because of time
restraints, lack of writing abilities, or with knowledge of a topic you aren’t familiar
with, you should consider hiring a ghostwriter.
Ghostwriters are valuable when you need quality content on topics that are easily
researchable by the ghostwriter. You may also find ghostwriters who are experts in
their own field but hire themselves out as writers as a side business.
When hiring a ghostwriter you should make a ‘work-for-hire’ agreement.
This means that the writing cannot be resold to another buyer, or used by the
ghostwriter for other purposes.
Ghostwriters can be found through freelance websites like Elance. Depending on
your requirements and bulk volume, you can get it done for as low as $5 per article.
If you regularly need access to a variety of information you can use a service such
as InfoGoRound, which gives you access to a large database of articles written by
ghostwriters. This service also permits you to request articles on specific topics
that one of their professional writers may undertake to write for you.
4.3 Get PLR Articles
There have been new membership sites springing up like mushrooms, which offer
private label articles for a song, sometimes as low as 15 cents per article. The flip
side is you need to modify the articles so that it is "unique".
One such membership site worth mentioning is Private Rights Articles, which
provides high quality articles in several niches. For each niche, there is an
accompanying keyword list containing about a thousand keywords (sourced from the
ever reliable WordTracker) for that niche. A header graphics file (in psd format) is
also included, for people who wants to create little niche websites using the articles.
5 Special Traffic Generation Methods
As promised at the outset, here are some special unconventional methods to get you
5.1 Expired Domain Traffic
Traffic Bridge is one of the largest expired domain traffic sellers, which redirects
human visitors from those domains which are already expired.
If you need large amounts of traffic at a low price for certain purposes, and does
not need to be targeted traffic, then this is something you can consider. Again, as
expected from such redirection, the traffic is highly untargeted, and can even be of
Step 1: Register an account at: Trafficbridge Register. (not many people know
about this link).
Step 2: Make your order at Trafficbridge Order (use NORM25DISC as the coupon
code for 25% discount, select "Normal" type).
After the discount, you can purchase in multiples of about US$6 per 10,000
5.2 Grab Those High Traffic Expired/Deleted Domains
Domains are constantly expiring for various reasons. Some of the domains have
regular traffic, a certain number of backlinks, and some with high pagerank. These
soon-to-be-expired domains are up for grabs, and you can build websites that are
already listed in the search engines with ready visitors.
Websites such as http://www.expiredtraffic.com/ or http://www.deleteddomains.com/
actually do all the legwork and let you have a comprehensive list. They used to be free,
but now require some fees. Other sites are http://www.snapnames.com/ and
http://www.snapcheck.com/ , which list the expiring domains, and allow you to
"reserve" a specific domain name, often for a fee. You can do a search for other
services that list expiring domains.
