Steer Clear of the Internet Traffic Jam
by Jason Blackston
Yesterday, I got stuck in a traffic jam. It wasnít the
first time and unfortunately wonít be the last time! 5
miles of bright beaming red tail lights flickering in my
eyes. Just the thought of it makes me kind of nauseas.
Especially, when all I was trying to do was go to the
grocery store to pick up a gallon of milk!
Iíve noticed my offline experiences sometimes mimic my
online experiences. You see, the internet offers us the
opportunity to travel in millions of different directions.
Yet, many times we get stuck in an internet traffic
A super information highway with people going in several
different directions. However, many times those directions
lead to a crash. Yes, it sounds crazy but itís absolutely
true! When I first became an internet marketer, I tried
several different methods to generate traffic to my sites.
Here were a couple of methods that I implemented:
Please note that I am only expressing my opinions and
FFA-Free For All pages are sites with links to several other
sites. The object is to list your site to these pages which
will bring traffic to your site and increase your popularity
in the search engines. Generally, itís just a plain web
page with little links to several other sites. You are
lured into thinking that youíre going to direct people to
your site and become popular. Well, not so fast my friend!
The people who run these sites ask you to register by
entering your email address. This way they are able to
personally market to you over and over again. Iím not
saying that people havenít had success with FFA pages but it
can definitely be a difficult task.
While you get to list a link to your site with a little
blurb, these sites are so popular that you often get pushed
right off the page in a short amount of time! Plus, I
noticed that most people donít take the time to look at a
page with thousands of little links on it anyway!
Itís kind of like being in your car in a traffic jam on a
beautiful day. The sun is out, and the flowers are in full
bloom, but all you see are the tail lights right in front of
My experiences with safelists are similar to FFA pages.
Safelists are email advertisements. The only reason they
are "safe" is because the people who join them agree that in
order to send out information about their product or program
they must also accept email from other members of the
This leads to several thousand emails flooding into your
inbox on a daily basis! Once again, I found myself in an
internet traffic jam! All I wanted to do was show people my
products and site, not just hope and wish that they would
open my email or click on my links.
Now, I avoid the internet traffic jam, by steering clear of
FFA pages and Safelists.
