Getting free traffic to your website - Promote your site for free

by: Ali Papila

There are various ways to get free traffic to your website. Although, autosurf programs are easier and faster way to do it, they do not send targeted visitors to your site. In this post I will explain free resources to get free traffic to your website.

Web Directory Submission

Submitting your site in free directories is one of the easiest way to get traffic. Free directory submission may not get you a lot of traffic but it will certainly increase your rank in search engines. For free directories search "directory" in Here are the some free submission directories that I found for you. One thing you have to keep in mind is, when you submitting your site, make sure to choose the category that suits best to your site. Just submitting to any category does not send you targeted visitors.

Search Engine Submission

There are many websites offers free web submission. However, I prefer submitting my site manually. You can do this free at yahoo, google, jayde, and alexa. If you want to use web submission services then I strongly recommend WEB CEO. Web CEO comes free and provides great functionalities such as URL submission to more than 200 search engines, link exchange, keyword analyses and many more.

Link Exchange

Link exchange is another way to get free traffic to your website. However, you need to be selective, when it comes to choose the sites for link exchange. If you exchange links with similar sites to yours, that would help your page ranking. Also try to put your links in high ranking websites as it also helps your search engine ranking. Just be nice to the webmaster and ask for link exchange. In most cases they will say no but don't give up. (If you be nice I can exchange link with you as well).

Emails ( NOT SPAM )

One of the best ways to get free traffic is emails. Just let your friends know about your website. Use your website URL as your signature in all your mails. Also you can ask your friends to do the same for you. Every ones a while send newsletters to your friends about your website and ask them to forward this to their contacts. You will be surprised how much traffic you will get from this. Also I have to mention this DO NOT SPAM.

Forums and Groups

There are lots of discussion forums and groups available that discuss about various topics. You can become members to these forums. Post regular comments to these forum by using your URL as your signature. Just don't send your URL as it will look really unprofessional and you will end up excluded. Talk about whatever the group or forum is about. BECOME A REGULAR.


Create blogs that links to your website. You can easily set up a blog for free. Google, yahoo, msn are provides free blog hosting services.
