How do you drive traffic to your site other than advertising your website? Check out the four ways to marketing websites for more traffic, for free, here.
Do article marketing
Submitting to article directories Article marketing is free and it is one of the most popular methods of website promotions. Simply, write keyword focused articles and submit these to top article directories on a regular basis. Some Internet marketers recommend that you submit unique articles to these directories and not the ones, that are on your website or blog. Driving traffic to your website Readers who read your articles may follow through your website link if the articles are interesting enough or if you promise something in your resource box. (The author's resource box is typically located at the end of the article.)
Do video marketing
Submitting to video sites If you don't want to write, create videos and submit these to top video sites on a regular basis. Focus each video on a tight topic for effectiveness. Enter relevant tags so that your videos can be found easily. To keep web users interested, make these videos short and to the point. Clarity is good too. Driving traffic to your website If your videos are interesting enough, people will click through your site to learn more about it.
Give away free reports
Write short reports, which are focused on a topic that your target market wants to know more about. Of course, your website link is included so that they may click through to find out more. You can create these report once in a while. In time, you will have a number of these, marketing your site for you. You can submit these to directories or give the links to other marketers who have your target readers, so that they may spread them on their sites, newsletters and so on.
Add your site to Google
Google has a site for web-masters which is free to use. One of the services allow you to add your site URL to Google so that it gets indexed on its search engine faster. You will also need to verify that you are the site owner. Even though your site will be eventually crawled by Google's indexing spider, you can accelerate it in this way.
