Let's talk about some powerful ways to get free and automated traffic coming to your website.

But, first...

The first thing you need to do before you start going after any traffic is keyword research. This is because you will be building your traffic funnels around specific keywords. Which means you need to put some thought into the keywords you're targeting.

A couple things to keep in mind when doing keyword research:

Are the keywords you're interested in attainable? You'll have to analyze the competition and see what's out there for this.

Will the keywords you're targeting bring buyers? Some keywords will bring lots of traffic, but none of them will buy. This is not what you're looking for.

What about affiliates? Generating your own customers is great - having other people do it for you is even better. So make sure you are also targeting keywords to attract affiliates.

Of course, this all takes time if you plan to do it yourself. Experts are expensive and don't guarantee results. The upside is that these two factors keep most everyone from even doing their keyword research. What I recommend is using website traffic software to save the time of doing it yourself and the money of hiring someone else. Using tools like this speed up the process and improve your results, too!

Once you know your keywords...

Now that you've completed your keyword research, you can begin using these keywords to get traffic to your website.

Here are a couple of clever ways to do this...


"Traffic Traps"

Video Sharing Sites


The truth is that people really enjoy taking surveys and finding out what other people think. And if you make it interesting, other people will post your survey on their website. They benefit by getting free content for their site and you get a link to your site under the survey. The beauty of this is that it generates website visitors for you with no work on your part. Using just this one extra idea will put you ahead of your competition . . . who think surveys are for gathering information! The only thing you have to do is think of a novel question for your survey.

"Traffic Traps"

Maybe you've seen these help sites where people post questions and other people answer them. Once again, the main reason for this site is not the reason you're interested. The other thing they can be used for is to get traffic to your site, leads for your business and sales! One thing you can do is to visit sites like Craigslist and Yahoo! Answers and manually extract contact info to contact other users. But a much smarter method is to use website traffic software to do it for you. This allows you to do the things in your business that can't be automated and let the software just give you the leads.

Video Websites

Another great resource is video sharing sites like YouTube. In fact, YouTube has over 2 billion videos watched per day! If you're not taking advantage of this rich source of website traffic, then you are really missing out.

And don't worry if you don't have any idea of how to make a video. You can even take a webpage or article that you've written. Then simply record yourself reading the text and you video the screen with a simple screen capture program. And like anything else, there is software available that will turn articles into videos for you automatically.

The Bottom Line...

It's not that hard to get traffic to your websites. Use your noodle and come up with things other people aren't doing. You can even use software to automate most of what we've talked about.

Get started right away:

Keyword research first is key

Then create some surveys born to go viral

Take advantage of the "help" sites

And definitely include video sharing sites
