How to get free traffic to your blog



Yesterday evening I was at the seminar conducted by Alvin Phang

About how to get traffic or automatic drive traffic to your site.By using these Atomatic blogging software or Atomic blogging software

How to get Repeat visitors, he has share with us many ways and most are free. Below is one of the techniques he shares with us.

This post is a way I want to say Thank you to him.

- Viral social bookmarking
- Viral linking
- SEO-friendly links (from social bookmarking sites)
- SEO-friendly links elsewhere (as a result of links on social bookmarking sites)
Now let's look at what steps you, as a blogger, you can increase your website's benefits from social bookmarking.

MAKE IT EASY for your visitors to social bookmark your website. This means offering them as many options as possible. You might want to use a multi-bookmarking service, It also means making the bookmarking links easy to find, usually at the top of the page or at the base of an article.

BOOKMARK YOUR PAGES yourself. Yes, this means signing up for accounts at several bookmarking services. Choose as many or as few as you wish, but remember that when it comes to marketing your website, the more venues the better. Do I have to remind you to call your mother? This would be an excellent time..."Hi mom, How are you doing? Yes, I know it's been a while...by the way, do you Digg?" Don't be shy; ask family and friends to social bookmark your pages, too.

SWAP BOOKMARKS with others who also want their pages bookmarked. For instance, if you search Google for " Bookmarketer ", you will find other websites that are actively courting social bookmarks. All you have to do is offer to bookmark some of their pages if they bookmark some of yours. It's a lot like a link exchange, except that it plays out on other websites. Now some social bookmarkers look askance at such joint ventures, and some even think that webmasters should not be promoting their websites at all.

PARTICIPATE in the social bookmarking site. There are some services that don't feature much participation; others are very participatory. Where you have the option, develop a large friend's list, so that you can easily share bookmarks. Bookmark, tag or comment on others' bookmarks. Being a good citizen gives a person credibility in the community...even the online community.

BOOKMARK OTHER PAGES that already link to your website. Don't just bookmark your own pages; bookmark those that link to yours. Choose especially pages that are relevant, that do not compete directly with yours and that list very few of your competitors. Let's face it, if traffic to all those pages goes up, so does traffic to your website. And if link value goes up to all those pages, so does link-value to your website.

IF YOU HAVE A LIST, ask them to bookmark any new page on your website that you want to generate traffic to. And speaking of new pages...

HAVE OUTSTANDING CONTENT. If your content doesn't stand out, the best you can do is your own contrived bookmarking. Sure, that can help, but it's nothing compared to the power of thousands of people bookmarking your web pages because they think it's just awesome! All the social bookmarking and SEO tactics you employ can massively help to market your website, but without great content your chances of success are pretty slim. Put up the content, make it easy for people to social bookmark your website, bookmark some of your own pages and encourage anybody you know to do likewise.

Hi ! I like your blog's background and the 3 columns. Very nice. I guess you know a lot more about internet marketing than me. Was thinking of putting you onto The Lonely Surfer (http://lonelysurfer.wordpress.com) so people who pop by me can go to yours for more info, and you seem related to my Grow Rich Along With Me ! blog as well so was wondering if you wanted to swop links there ? ( Though I am in a job I love, and my new hobby on internet marketing is giving me more work !!).

Thanks for the great post. There's definitely no need to spend a lot of money to promote a good site and I've come to the conclusion that content is most important. I would add that in addition to great content it is really important to have regular content. It's amazing what a difference steady blog updates make in building traffic.
