How to Generate Free Traffic to Your Website - 3 Powerful Tips For Magnetic Traffic Building

Are you wondering how to generate free traffic to your website?

You can have a great website with awesome flash players, cool designs and widgets, but it would mean nothing if you have no traffic coming in. It is in fact the single thing that everyone struggle for and wish for so badly. It can make or break businesses and single-handedly determine if you are have your cash registers ringing or if you are broke.

In this article, I will talk about 3 easy yet powerful tips to attract a boatload of free traffic to your websites.

1. Give Away Stuff: One of the most powerful techniques to attract a lot of traffic to your website or salespage is to give away stuff for free. Needless to say, your "free" offer should be valuable and should be of great value for your target audience. And this free stuff need not be physical products, but can be simple information reports- a pdf, an interview with an expert, a Camatasis video, a teleseminar etc.

By giving away something of value, you will create a viral buzz where the people who get your product for free will start promoting the product for you. Having said that your free product should be extremely good to create that buzz

2. Social Media Marketing: You can tap into numerous free social media marketing channels to generate free traffic to your website. Web 2.0 sites like Squidoo, Hubpages, Quizilla, Twitter, Youtube, Facebook and Myspace can be great sources of free traffic to your website.

Again, you need to position yourself in such a way that you come across someone who would give "value" to your community. You can easily abuse these channels and earn a bad reputation for yourself.

3. Contest: Another popular method of attracting free traffic to your sites would be to have a contest. These contests could be either on the 'Best Question Asked' or 'The Best Comment.' You can be creative to make these contests fun and popular.
