Unusual Ways to Get Free Traffic

Updated on January 24, 2015
Source

If your website or blog isn't getting traffic, you aren't earning money. I'm including some ways you may not have thought about to increase your traffic and I hope you can see some cash in your pocket soon. You won't need to spend a penny. It is all free.

Because it can be difficult and take a long time to rank well in the search engines, you need to find other ways to get traffic when you first begin writing online. Don't worry, as your work ages it will rank better in the searches and the money will start coming in. When that happens, you should still use these ideas, plus keep your articles updated.

You probably already know that you need links to your pages to rate well in the search engine. You also need proper use of keyword phrases. I'm not going to cover SEO (search engine optimization) here, because there are already pages upon pages written about this subject that you can read and may already have. I've listed some helpful pages at the bottom if you haven't. Be sure to read the pages in the Hubpage Learning Center. These give good advice and you'll learn much of what you need to know.

I am going discuss some ways you may not have thought about before. They don't have anything to do with SEO. These should help you get traffic.

Tip #1 Include Your Url at the Bottom of Emails

Always include the url to your profile page or from your website under your email signature. Of course you aren't going to want to do this if you are sending a resume for a job or any other professional email, but do use it in all other emails.

Most of your friends and relatives will be curious enough to click on it and may become one of your followers. Don't forget to keep writing, so they have something new to read every time they visit.


Tip# 2 Use Yahoo Groups

Find a niche to write about. I'm like most of the writers here and write about many different topics, but the majority of my writing falls into 3 categories. Join Yahoo Groups and find groups pertaining to your niches and join them. Whenever you write a new hub that they'd be interested in, post it to the group. You'd be surprised how much traffic you can get this way.

There is a group for everyone. A group for writers to share their stories and poems is also included.

If the group is large, you can get as many as 500 visitors the first day. The traffic often continues for weeks, since many of the members don't read their emails everyday. Traffic will start dwindling, but will keep up for awhile. In the meantime, you need to do more writing.

Please don't spam the groups. Only add links that the group would be interested in reading. Since there are so many interests to choose from, you don't need to do it. I make it a rule that I only post one link a week per group.

Tip# 3 Start a Facebook Page

Be sure to start a page on Facebook for at least one of your niches. Members of Facebook will find your page and join. I have just over 100 followers this way, which isn't a lot, but every bit helps. My daughter has over 4000 for Nascar, so it can be huge.

Whenever I write a new page that would interest my followers, I post the link. This has increased my traffic.

Join one of the online writers groups on Facebook. There are groups that were created just for you to add you links. One that I belong to is "Online Article Writers." Another is just called Hubpages. Be sure you are joining the group, because Hubpages itself has its own page.

Tip# 4 If You Use Amazon or eBay

Some of you may be able to use this tip and others won't. I sell books on Amazon. Every time I sell a book in the craft category, I include the url to my website and let them know that I have free patterns there. Everyone wants something free and since they already like crafts, they visit.

It doesn't have to be books. Maybe you write about music and you have extra CD's to sell. Use your imagination.


Tip# 5 Join Forums

Write about what you are interested in and then join some forums about those topics. Post a reply to questions when you can be helpful. Most forums will allow you to post a url under your name. Make your post helpful, not just to add your url.

It is best to be a member of the group for awhile before doing this, or they may think that you are spamming. Answer questions whenever your advice is helpful and do it several times and then add your url on a post.

You may end up becoming the expert everyone looks to for advice.

Tip# 6 Be Sure Your Profile Page is Indexed

Check that your profile page is being indexed at Google. If not, submit it. This url will make it easy. http://www.google.com/submityourcontent/website-owner/

Tip# 7 Keep Your Content Fresh

Update your pages and add new information anytime it becomes available. Edit out any information that is no longer applicable. Keeping your pages fresh help them rank better in the Search Engines.

Tip#8 Join Pinterest

At Pinterest, you choose your areas of interest and pin a photo on your board. Others can click on the photo and go to your page. I am getting a lot of traffic from this site.

Always use a good clear photo. The photo is what will attract people to your page. They'll then re-pin it to their board and others will find it there. Writers are even using photos made just for Pinterest. The site is popular and gets lots of visitors.

Tip#9 Content That Will Help Others

When writing be sure that your content will help others or entertain them. I usually use the search engine when I need to know how to do something or need information. See to it that your content fills a need. Then write the best article online and be sure people can understand what you are saying.

If your hub is funny enough or helpful enough, it just might go viral. See to it your content is unique from everyone else's. Share your own experience. If you are giving advice, share how it worked for you.

If your content is good, others will link to and share the information. You won't need to work at getting links, because it will be taken care of for you for free.

Tip#10 Guest Blog

Most SEO experts are now claiming that Google's Penguin now considers this to be spam. I think on Google's part that is a silly notion. I don't advice trying this one anymore.

One of the better ways to get free traffic is by writing a short article for someone else's blog and then be sure to include your url. If you just type guest blog in the search engine and then the topic your article, blog or site is about, you'll be surprised at how many sites want guest bloggers. An why not? It adds good content to their sites. You'll get free traffic from their site and rank better in the search engines at the same time.

Tip#11 Read Everything About SEO that you Can

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. If you haven't studied that yet, do!!!. Never overdo keywords, but be sure they are included in your title. The rest can be learned by reading the article.

Tip#12 Use Social Sites

I'm sure you've heard about Twitter, Facebook and the others. Don't send so many posts that your visitors start ignoring them, but do use them when it is something they'll be interested in.

Some other social sites you can use are StumbleUpon, Reddit, Digg, and others. Don't spam these sites, but use them when your writing fits in well with them.

#13 Use Other Writing Sites

There are many writing sites out there. Write an article about the same subject, but with a different slant. Add your link on the bottom for more information. Try creating your own blog.

I hope some of these ideas will help some of you start getting some serious traffic which equals more money. If you have any unusual ideas that I haven't mentioned, please share them with us.

If you haven't already learned the basic SEO (search engine optimization) techniques, be sure to read the the hub at the bottom below. It will guide you in everything you need to know.

      Reginald, Thank you for reading the article and commenting. Try all of these ideas and wait about a month. Your traffic should pick up. Then give it awhile and Google might give some a good placing and traffic will increase for sure.

      Jacobb9205, I am happy to hear this was helpful to you. Pinterest seems to like women's topics. That may be why it hasn't been successful for you. Don't forget to share other's hubs. If you use the link on the bottom of the hub page, you can get credit and earn from 10% of the traffic they get from the views your link send them. By clicking on that link, it will include your referral tracker.

      Thank you for creating this hub it's very helpful! I just created a Facebook page and made a bunch of scheduled posts ready for other days, some contain my Hubs, some contain memes, etc. I plan on creating multiple pages for each topic such as a Minecraft one for Minecraft related hubs, etc. I hope this helps me get more views, thank you again!

      I'm already in a bunch of forums, but good you mentioned it as they're very useful.

      On Tip#6 You say to index our profile pages, wouldn't it be more beneficial to index every hub?

      Pinterest hasn't really gotten me many views. I only got 2 followers and barely any views.

      Everything else I already knew about/already do, but thank you anyway :)

      New Understanding, When I first started writing, I did submit each one. Now I just pin it on Pinterest and it gets indexed. I am not going to give you a definite answer, because I will be honest. I am not sure.

    • New Understanding profile image

    • New Understanding profile image

      New Understanding 4 years ago from Northern California

      Wonderful info Barbara. I'm pretty new to Hubpages, almost past boot camp :) and I have a question. Should I wait to implement these ideas after I have an account with Google Adsense and Amazon etc? I've been told to wait until I have about 10 hubs or so before I apply and would like to make sure I have the ability to make money from all your good advise with the increase of traffic like with Yahoo groups. Would you see that as a wise decision?

      Thanks again for the great info!

      I'm back, again! I just realized that if you give your hubs the opportunity to be in the spotlight (you know, switch them out with old hubs), traffic will pick up. It might be a temporary solution, but it worked for me. I don't know if anyone had mentioned this yet, but there's an idea.

      Very useful and do-able ideas. Thanks for taking the time to share your wisdom with us all. Thumbs up etc. It will no doubt take some time to put these ideas in place, but one has to be willing to put in the effort.

      Thanks a bunch! I'm already trying #7. Most of my hubs are creative writing, but I'm re-editing some as I re-read them. I'll also try adding my URL to my e-mail. Now, I got something else to look forward to!
