I’m going to make this article straight and to the point, anyone who knows me knows how I hate writing articles, but since it’s the nature of the beast in this online world in which we live and do business, I guess I gotta grin and bear it! Oh, and I write like I talk so no pansy comments about how I misspelled yo momma or said gotta instead of got to! You want Free Traffic right? So let’s get to it!
I love the phrase “It goes without saying” cuz in the online marketing business there is no such thing! I’m going to spell it all out like I’m talking to my 7-year old son, if ya don’t get than there’s nothing I can do! First things first. You must have some sort of niche. A niche is a specific topic, like internet marketing, online dating, yada yada yada. There can be many sub-niche’s within, but you must have something picked out. Once you have your niche picked (that was fun to say, niche picked!) you need either a website or a blog. In my opinion, both work just as well with the exception that having your own site gives you more freedom and flexibilty, but for this purpose, a blog works just fine. Grab yourself some articles, about 5-10 of them or write some content yourself keyword ranking api. Get a good amount so ypu like like an authority. Got that? Good, let’s keep going!
For the purpose of an example, let’s use the niche ” Celebrity Wigs” Didn’t even know that was a niche, did ya? Well not only is it, but a very profitable one as well! Most wigs sell for an average of $300! That’s big money when you see what we can do! Ok, now go to Google’s Keyword Tool and type your niche in. In order to get the free traffic we need to be on Google first page. Sounds tough huh? You not listening to me! Our objective in the keyword search is to find low competition keywords with a decent amount of traffic. Anything with 1000 or more searches a month is pretty good, and keeping the competition under 50,000. If you can meet those 2 criteria your in business! There is more out there than you might imagine. At the time of this writing, I have found 7 keywords under celebrity wigs! The keyword “celebrity cute” is getting 5,400 monthly searches and only 22,000 competing sites! You can pretty much write one article and get listed for that! To find out how much competition there is, simply open another tab and Google that keyword with parenthesis around it. Continue to do this with as many phrases as you can think of that relates to your niche and build yourself a decent sized keyword list. Still with me? Moving on!
Where’s the Free Traffic dufus! Hold on, I’m getting there! After you have your list, your going to want to join some social network sites. I thought about listing them here, but considering Onlywire has a huge list that you can use for Free I thought, Nah! Your also going to want a decent list of ping sites to ping your blog or website. WordPress blogs will automatically ping after each post but it only sends to ping-o-matic so here is a list to add to your wordpress blog or do do manually for other blogs or websites.
