How to get FREE online traffic
How to get FREE online traffic is a hotly contested debate. Free targeted traffic is the hardest part of online marketing. Most often you will need to use some sort of pay per view system to get traffic to your site. This can become very costly, if the conversion rates aren’t very good.
FREE TRAFFIC is equally hard to receive and convert to paying/buying customers. However, since FREE means free, this is the most sought after type of traffic.
I love to start with free traffic. You obviously must start with a website. The most common website these days are wordpress websites. WordPress websites are loved by the search engines if you use optimal tools. You should get these plugins for starters, All In One SEO pack, Sitemap xml are a must. All in one is so you can easily add titles, keywords, tags to your pages. Sitemap is so google and other search engines can index your website easier.
There are many things to remember about your webpages. You want your webpages to be relevant to your site. So keep little things like this in mind when creating pages. Once you create pages, you can also get pings at pingomatic.com. It’s simple, put in your blog heading and then your website in both boxes below.

Video. Yes, video is a major source of traffic. You will want to get an account at YouTube, which is owned by Google. Youtube is 3rd as far as traffic goes on the internet. Even if you don’t have any videos, you should still get a channel. You may want to have a username, which is your channel name represent what you are doing. Of course you can always add another channel for another website if you prefer. I would suggest you obtain a video to add to your youtube channel. In the description, the 1st words may include your website url, this may lead a person who is viewing your video to your page. Organic traffic and you can put in tags, keywords on youtube videos and pages. You can do this when writing in your description for the video and/or channel.
