By-passing Google,,,,

    Since so many are talking about Google smacking hubpages, I thought I'd share an obvious yet little used way to bring traffic to your websites.

    Yes I mean websites, as it can't do much for hubs. So many get backlinks for the ranking; in fact that is all they think about.

    Yet if you do it right you can get most of your traffic from links, not Google or any other SE's. smile

    It's nice to not depend on Google for all your traffic. So many talk about not bothering with no-follow links. Yet you could get thousands of hits a day to your site with those from the direct traffic.

    I have a site that gets over 2,000 unique hits a day all from links. They also are highly targeted traffic to my niche.

    Exchange links from other niche sites that put your link on the front page or at least not buried in a link page.

    Join niche forums and be helpful, not spammy, but put a link in your signature.

    Buy banners from other sites in your niche, get listed in paid local directories, use free merchant directories.

    There's a dozen other ways. Stop looking at backlinks as only ways to increase your rank and instead use them for the traffic itself.

    Think of back in the old days before the net. How did places get traffic? By getting their place noticed in books, the yellow pages, buying ads in newspapers and so on.

    Do the same on the net and don't worry so much about the big G. smile

      Good advice.

      I have my own plan I'm going to execute in the near future. It involves video, see how that works out. I feel it is going to be a great untapped niche.

        Oh yeah that's another great way to get traffic, make youtube videos. I get thousands of hits a month from my videos. smile

      Clearly the way to go - well laid out argument.  Can you give a bit more information on how these links are connected ?



      For Hubbers I have a new hub that may help with the climb back up the rankings in some ways.

      YES, I really was wondering this myself. This is exactly what I need to know, any experts?

      @bill are you also apart of the partnership program over there? I'm trying to get a feel for it.
