    I've posted this list before:

    SEO for organic
    articles
    press release
    message boards with a sig link
    free classifieds
    comments on other's blogs with link
    Yahoo directory - $300/year
    Dmoz directory
    multiple websites of your own - linking back to the target website
    your blog links back to your website
    Search engine registration
    ask for a review from a high traffic blog owner ($100-$500)
    figure out ways to get a linkback from a higher PR site

    That should get you started.

    I can agree with that 100%. I always suggest writing articles that are helpful to the type of audience that you are trying to reach. I also strongly suggest search engine registration as well.

    Articles are very good and produce a target audience for you. Probably the best article sites can be found by doing a search in google for article sites.

    I would post articles to 4 or 5 different article sites and then review your website traffic and see where the clicks came from.

    Thanks

    Can anyone provide a lead to free classifieds. Several sites would not allow MLM, affiliate, etc. and rejected. Even a home work classified rejected. I succeeded in getting 2 ads placed (usfreeads.com), but wonder if there are any others you can recommend that would take GPT advertising.

    I think that posting helpful, thoughtful comments on high PR blogs is effective. You might not get direct link juice, since most have "no follow". However, a certain percentage do have "do follow" and if you post at enough blogs, then you are bound to hit some of these eventually.

    In any case it's worth it, because people will click to your blog, and blog owners who like what you write may end up linking to your blog. Also, commenting is a great way to generate, formulate and hone ideas that you can then post on your own blog. (It's worth doing for that alone, I think.)

    I agree, but it is usually very time consuming

    Content, popularity and links are 3 factors that will get you a good ammount of traffic. There are so many directories that you can submit to as previously mentioned. The good thing about directories is that you can get a decent ammount of targeted hits by placing your link in one of the catagories relevent to your site.

    Personally I make videos (like ones on YouTube). Because I believe more in Attraction Marketing, then I will try to add value and useful information in my videos. i always give out my website link but never push it. So the idea is to make videos relevent to your business w/o advertising it. Videos are free to do as long as you have a camera.

    I have heard that social bookmarking your blog has come to be a very effective way of sharing your blog with people. Posting Free ads through Classifieds has also been effective in bring traffic to you website or blog.

    Quoting: wannaliverightgo to Blogger.com to get a free account. When you update your Blog you must Ping it also to get it to the search engines and out to the web faster.
    I use Wordpress. Could you please explain a bit more how I can Ping it from there? How do you compare Blogger with Wordpress? Thanks.

    i personally love article marketing. I have articles I wrote several months back still generating traffic for me daily. It is very easy to do and anyone can typically get a half decent article out once a day. Even if you do 2 a week in a years time you're looking at over 100 articles...

    Hey Newbie, When are you going to put that list on a website...or better yet make a lens about it[​IMG]

    I second articles and press releases. Excellent way to get traffic! My home business has video tutorials showing step by step how to market and where to market. Once I learned some tricks of article marketing, I landed on the front page of google in the number 1,2, &5 spot within 24 hrs using specific keywords. I write articles consistently and I couldn't stop the traffic if I wanted to. Best part about writing articles and press releases, they're FREE!
