There are several free ways to promote your website, but there are more effective ones than others, in this article, I will be showing you some of the most effective freeways I have employed over the years to promote my websites.
Article Marketing: Article marketing will continue to be my number one resource for promoting any website. This simply implies that you write simple articles relating to your website or product, and have those articles submitted to article directories. What happens is that these article directories have the tendency of sending free traffic to your website and due to the back linking activities from the articles; your website will easily get ranked on the search engines. If you ask me, article marketing is the cheapest, easiest and most effective free ways to promote your website.
Forum Marketing: There are lots of forums out there on various niches; you only need to find the ones that relate to your niche or market. A forum is a platform where people with common interests converge to discuss issues relating to their niche or market. For instance, if your product is on “teaching a child how to learn mathematics” you could be looking for forums where there are parents, teachers, students, etc. The logic is that you should participate fully in the discussions with useful and valuable comments or tips. What happens is that prospects are likely to click on your signature link, thereby taking them to your website or product page. Once your product is convincing enough, some are likely to buy from you.
Blog Commenting: Almost similar to forum marketing, look for blogs related to your website and add valuable comments with anchor text linking back to your website. Besides sending you targeted free traffic, if done professionally, it will also increase your page ranking.
