In today’s post, we are going to discuss 6 ways to get website traffic for free.
So you’ve got a website online, but you don’t know how to get traffic to it. I understand that when you start a website, It’s tough, especially when it’s new to get eyeballs on it.
No one views it; you get absolutely nobody visiting your site. Well, in today’s video I’m gonna show you seven ways. You can get free traffic to your brand-new website.
If you’re trying to make money online…
or just generally trying to work online, you’re probably going to have a website. You need to get traffic to that website to make money and earn a living online now, I was in that position when I started online.
I had all these websites; I didn’t know what to do or how to get free traffic to those websites.
I found it extremely hard to figure that out if you have an affiliate marketing blog or have a general website or have any website, and you’re not getting traffic to it right now.
You want to know how to start getting traffic to your website then make sure you stay to the end of this article because I’m going to show you seven ways to actually get this done, these methods do work I’ve done them I still do them today on my brand new websites.
“what to do or how to get free traffic to those websites.”
Let’s jump right in and look at the first of ways you can get free traffic to your website.
Pinterest is a search engine focused on images.
One thing about Pinterest right now is they just released the option to pin videos; this means their video Algorithm is hot right now. If you can go and pin videos on Pinterest right now, you’re going to get traffic.
You’re going to get a lot of traffic. In fact, I know lots of blogs where Pinterest Counts for most of their traffic because Pinterest is simply on fire.
There are not enough people using it, Pinterest is one of the most significant search engines online currently.
Go to Pinterest, create pins that match your blog post, and start pinning content. Over time you’re going to build up more followers on Pinterest.
You will start getting your pins shared and liked, which can leed your pins to go viral.
Pinterest is one of the primary traffic sources that I used For my blogs. I recommend trying this out right now while the algorithm is hot.
The second strategy – blog comments,
Don’t dismiss this as an outdated approach to driving traffic to your websites, and remember this is entirely free.
These are very effective; I also do this every week.
What you want to do is go to Google and put in keywords related to your niche.
For example, if your blog is about internet marketing or making sales funnels, go into Google and put in the top landing pages or sales funnels influencers’ names.
Go on to the blog’s that have a comment section, comment, and if you can try and link back to your website.
It doesn’t take very long for you to do. For every new post on my website, I look to comment on 10 to 20 sites in my niche.
If you have time pressures you can pay someone to do this for you, check out sites like Fiverr and Upwork to find people who offer this service.
I know that doesn’t follow the free category, but sometimes time versus money, It is better to pay someone a little bit of money to do it for you.
This is a straightforward way to get free traffic to your website. This isn’t going to work in all niches because some sites do turn off their comments section.
Still, many websites do have a comment section. If you go on there and be active, you will get a flow of targeted traffic coming to your site.
You’ll slowly see a sound momentum of traffic coming to your website.
Traffic strategy number three – SEO.
Search Engin Optimization (SEO) is one of my favorite traffic strategies, it’s utterly passive traffic.
You have to be smart on how you deploy SEO for your site.
Here is what I see, say someone has a blog on making money online, they go and try and rank for how to make money online. It’s going to be impossible for a brand new website to rank for that keyword to be competitive.
You want to go for Low-hanging fruit keywords. Look for longtail keyword phrases people are using, these will be less competitive and easier to rank for.
An example of this is “like how to make money online with Instagram for free.”
It’s a longtail keyword. When someone searches how to make money online with Instagram for free, your website will have an excellent chance of showing up in the search results.
Traffic strategy number four -Youtube.
YouTube Once again is the second biggest search engine online, but for videos.
You’ve probably searched how to get or how to do thousands of times online. And what pops up at the top of the search results, yes Youtube videos.
A lot of people are scared of being in videos, don’t be.
You don’t have to actually put your face on YouTube. You can go and use PowerPoint of KeyNote and a program called Camtasia and create your own explainer the videos.
All you need to do to build a stream of targeted traffic to your blog is to consistently post your valuable content on YouTube.
Here is what I do.
1) Write A blog post
2) Record a Podcast based on that content
3) video myself recording that podcast
4) Upload the video to YouTube
5) SEO the Youtube Video title and description and publish.
Link back to your site, invite people to subscribe, and follow your channel, and over time, you will build up a highly targeted stream of traffic.
Now, number five is really easy to do as well.
It’s kind of like blog comments, which one I go to websites like curate calm and Quora. These are question websites where people are asking questions every single day based on specific topics.
So you want to go into the search bar and put your topic in the search bar and find people asking questions; once you find some people asking questions, answer that question with a highly valuable reply and link back to your website.
Don’t say hey, check out my website and spam It.
Just say hey I found this information at blah blah blah and then link to your website. Say something like, if you want to find out more information about this, check out this website.
It,s one of the biggest mistakes people do, spamming their links. If you are looking to build a longterm business, don’t do it.
Number 6 is excellent,
but it doesn’t require quite a bit of work to get this to stick and work for you, and that is to go on to Related forum know forums and message boards online.
That’s kind of old work, but it works exceptionally well. What you want to do is sign up an account and become active and create value.
Subscribe to Blog via Email
You must create value for this to work.
This is how I started one of my websites to thousands of views per day, So you want to go on to one of the forums in your niche just do one or two don’t overdo yourself.
Go on to those forums, go and create value based on your topic, and then inside that value have links to your website. Spend a couple of weeks on that website first Creating value and then start to drop your links on those forums.
The best thing about forums is your content stays there forever, like the rest of the methods we’ve talked about, and there’s continuously people going through forums and checking things out and once again.
Again you need to do it properly; you need to add value or don’t bother doing it because it won’t work. You can’t spam doing this type of stuff.
Now number seven, a little bonus tip for you.
Concentrating on all of these other six methods. Be consistent.
This creates what we call Backlinks to your website. What backlinks do is generate authority to your website, you’ll start to get up in the ranks in Google.
This will start a flow of traffic to your pages, posts, etc. Over time this will increase, and the traffic will be highly targeted.
What stops most people who want to start making money online is an overload of information, which leads to being overwhelmed, confusion, and eventually frustration, which makes them give up on their dreams.
How do I know?
That was me just a few short years ago until my mentor showed me why I was struggling and what to do about it.
Because I don’t want you to suffer as I did, I have worked with my mentor to bring you a FREE video training where he shows you what he told me so you can stop feeling frustrated and overwhelmed.
