You know, almost everybody nowadays owns a website. But what good is it when NOBODY, and I mean NOBODY, knows about it?. You could tell your friends and familybout it and surely they way pay it a visit, but that will basically be all.
What you want is traffic, thousands of hits per day. Maybe you have some affiliate links on your site and hope to make a few bucks off it. Or maybe you got a blog and want loads of people to join in your discussion.
One option is to pay an advertising company a few hundred dollars to do the job, or you can join Adwords from Google Inc to help you out, but this all cost money. What I am about to reveal to you, will cost you absolutely nothing at all. It will only cost you your time and effort.
Ask yourself the following question. DO I REALLY, REALLY WANT TRAFFIC?. If your answer is YES my friend, you need to build backlinks to your website or blog. And not just backlinks. ONEWAY BACKLINKS. The search-engines will love you for it.
Why is it so important to have backlinks?
You see, when the search engine spiders crawl these websites, they will most definately find your link and crawl your site. So every website on which the search engine spider finds your link, it will basically be forced to crawl your site as the link on those sites points the spiders in your direction. Those backlinks are actually votes for your site from the other sites and in no time you will see that are starting to get more traffic to your site.
The higher the pagerank of a site, the better it will be for your website. Some people reason that you should not submit your site to websites with a low or zero pagerank. That's kinda funny, cause did'nt we all start at pagerank zero? The site with your backlink on it might be PR 0 today, but what about next week, next month, or next year? Then you'll feel sorry for yourself, because then they might not even accept links anymore, cause their PR0 went up to PR7!!
So what can you do to get these free backlinks? You just have to write one article about any topic you are good at. Then join as much as possible Article Directories and submit your article there. Rlly, it's free to join them. There's literally thousands of these directories on the net. Some will accept your article, while others might decline it. But the bottom line is, those who accept it, is giving you valuable backlinks to your website, which automatically creates free traffic.
My friend, act now ! It's never too late. Just google around for free submission directories. You will find thousands of them.
