    5 Little Known Ways To Generate Free Traffic
    by Jo Han Mok

    Most people have the notion that generating traffic is a one-off event, and it involves spending huge sums of money on advertising.

    Nothing can be further from the truth.

    First of all, it's possible to open up streams of autopilot traffic geometrically, surely and steadily over time.

    Secondly, it costs next to nothing to do it, if you know how.

    Here are 5 instantly implementable methods to open up new traffic streams without needing to spend a dime.

    Free Traffic Method #1: Contribute Content

    Writing an ebook is a time consuming and arduous task. In comparison, writing a chapter of rock solid content is much easier and more achievable.

    I've personally been invited to contribute content to many people's info-products, usually in the form of 'chapters', and this has resulted in a lots of quality traffic that is not only free, but presold.

    While I understand that a person who is little known might not receive invitations to contribute, one can always solicit permission for your content to be included by publishers.

    It's all a phone call and email away, and if your content is good and your approach is right, a rejection is unlikely, and even if it happens, it's not gonna kill you, so just tell yourself 'next' and move on.

    Free Traffic Method #2: Give away Free viral Reports

    Put your best content into reports and give it away.

    Articles are great, but when you package them as Portable Document Files, there is a greater "perceived value".

    Give away free reports. Allow people to give away your free report to their visitors. Then, their visitors will also give it away. This will just continue to spread your ad all over the internet.

    Obviously, your reports will have to be 'viral' in order for that to happen.

    The best way to make your reports viral, is to include a monetary incentive.

    The links within the reports can be made brandable, and it'll be to your advantage to find some sort of multi-tier affiliate program that will increase your earnings exponentially, because you make money when the person giving away your reports makes money.

    It's a win win situation, and also allows you to use these magic words "make money by giving this report away".

    Free Traffic Method #3: Help Other Publishers

    It may surprise you, but your own website visitors may be info publishers as well.

    Help them help you by using these magic words, "Use Our Free Content On Your Site Or In Your E-zine" Allow your visitors to use your articles on their own web site or in their e-zine. Just ask them to include your resource box. This will spread your advertising like wildfire all over the internet.

    Free Traffic Method #4: Offer Testimonials

    If you're reading this article, chances are you're an info-junkie. If you've bought lots of info products, why not offer an unsolicited testimonial to the info-product creator?

    Simply include your URL under your name when giving the testimonial, and if it's used, you'll have additional exposure, and traffic.

    Obviously, you'd only give a testimonial to a product that you think has value and is good, and not endorse anything or everything under the sun.

    Testimonials can bring you traffic and top of the mind awareness, so don't underestimate the use of something as simple as this.

    Free Traffic Method #5: Syndicate Your Content

    A word of caution: don't use JavaScript. Why not? Because search engines don't 'see' JavaScript, so JavaScript feeds are useless for SEO. To make newsfeeds visible to search engines, their text has to be embedded into your page.

    FACT: If you view the source of your page and you don't see the actual text of the newsfeed, then search engines aren't going to see it either.

    Intead, do try using Real Simple syndication, or RSS. It's the buzzword on the Internet. RSS is a lightweight XML format designed for sharing things like news headlines and other web page content.

    You have a variety of opportunities for increasing traffic to your website. Publishing your own feed is a great way to cut through all the noise and clutter and get your message directly to your target market. On the other end of the spectrum, importing feeds from other sites or even other parts of your own site and displaying them on your webpages can increase your search engine rankings by automatically keeping your website full of fresh, relevant information

    If you're a little lazy and not too motivated, you'll be glad to know that regardless of what topic or subject matter you've built your website around, there's valuable content out there... articles and information written by an "expert" in that particular
    field.

    Because a large portion of it is available through the magic of RSS feed capability - YOU don't have to create the content yourself! Yes, you can profit from other people's content.

    There you have it, 5 easy ways to start getting free traffic fast.

    Now, go get it!
