In this article I will go over 3 ways to drive quality traffic to your site...

If you have ever read any of my content you have probably heard me say this before. Give away content.

#1 - Write content and post it to directories

You can get alot of traffic this way and links to your site or blog. Check out and submit to these places:

#2 - Solo Ads

I have had alot of success with solo ads. The reason for this is because you are not paying for a blast of traffic. You are paying for the owner of the list to send out an email to their subscriber list. Many of these people have opted in to receive information from the list owner.

There are a few tricks to this though.

Trick #1 - You do not want to send out a solo ad and have the people go straight to an affiliate link. The trick is to create a squeeze page that offers something to the visitor. THEN, after they opt in - direct them to a related affiliate offer. This way you get a subscriber onto your own list and you show them an affiliate offer. Make sure you have your autoresponder set up to deliver them the free report immediately after they opt in.

For example, if you are giving away a traffic guide, after they opt in, direct them to an affiliate offer that is related to driving traffic.

If you are giving away a guide about guitar playing tips, direct them to an affiliate offer that is related to playing the guitar.

Make sense?

What happens when you do this is that when you have them opt in to your list, they are now on your list and you can follow up with them.

Trick #2 - Will everyone opt in to get your free report - NO. There is another trick to make this useful as well. It is called an exit pop up. So, if someone decides not to opt in to your initial offer, you can send them to another offer if they "x" off of your first page.

There are several exit pop up products, you just have to look around. I use

Trick #3 - Tracking

Obviously people who offer solo ads cannot guarantee anyone at all will click on your ad and visit your website. What you want to do is track this. If you send out a solo ad and get great results then you know to keep that particular site in mind if you want to run another solo ad. If you send an ad and get no clicks then dump that site from your solo ad list.

I use for all of my tracking.

Here are some solo ad sites I have had success with:

#3 - Guest Blogging

Find blogs related to your niche and contact the website owner. Here is what you do:

Write an article related to the theme of the blog and email it to the owner as a sample of your writing. Tell them that you would like to be a guest blogger if they are in need of some good content.

Just go to and type in your niche + blog and you should see alot of blogs come up.

I hope these traffic tactics help you get the targeted traffic you are looking for.
