Five Free Internet Marketing Techniques

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

Marketing your website, blog, or any other online content can take hours of hard work and many different techniques. Several of these marketing techniques are free and can drive thousands of high quality targeted visitors and back links to your sites within just a few short days. In this article we take a quick look at five of these free techniques and show you how you can utilize them to create a stream of visitors in any niche market.

#1 – Article Marketing

You can easily drive targeted traffic to your content by utilizing this very simple technique. You have the choice of writing your own articles that relate to your niche which enables you to receive traffic that is targeted and interested in your content. You can also hire freelance writers to write the articles for you from websites such as elance.com for any price range. The key here is to add your signature at the bottom of the article, which in turn will direct visitors to your website. The best place to utilize this technique is ezineartcles.com

The most important part of this technique is writing good quality content so that others will “syndicate” your articles on their websites and blogs. What this does is add quality backlinks and visitors directly to your website from these websites that syndicated your article. Ezinearticles.com requires websites who use your article to keep your signature at the end of the article and this is a free and highly effective tool in your internet promotion and web marketing arsenal.

#2 – Social Bookmarking Websites


Today there are literally thousands of these types of websites, and when used correctly, this technique can drive quite a bit of traffic in a matter of hours. An easy way to find these websites is to search GOOGLE with a search string such as “top social bookmarking sites”. Remember to always tag your bookmarks with relevant tags in the proper categories and provide an entertaining summary that will attract viewers to click on the bookmark. Some of the more popular social bookmarking & social networking websites include:

Digg.com
Stumbleupon.com
Propeller.com
Indianpad.com
Reddit.com
Del.icio.us
Furl.com
Sphinn.com

I also run a social bookmarking site that is increasing in popularity by the day. My site can be found here: www.livewirenews.net

#3 – Social Networks



Social networks have always been a good place to promote your website, products, articles, music, and more. Myspace.com revolutionized the social networking scene and boasts millions of members. The main thing to remember when promoting on social networks is to not spam. This is the easiest way to get banned from these websites. Posting bulletins to your friends list will enable you to effectively market and promote your content to your friends list. In turn, if they find this information valuable, entertaining, or interesting, they may decide to send out bulletins of their own. This could create a snowball effect of free advertising that could spread quite fast and produce hundreds or even thousands of quality visitors as it spreads across the social networks.

Try looking around in the forums to find people interested in what you have to offer and create a post that answers there questions but also gives them your website as a resource or for extra information. This will help you remain spam-free and allow you to offer an answer to their questions while still promotion your specific content.

#4 – Trackback

This is a less known technique which is effective in getting your website quality back links while providing a service to the members of your website. Trackback is basically a backlink to your site created when you blog or post information and link to a blog. Trackback can be found on thousands of blogs across the internet and searching google with a search string of “trackback”. Some blogs do delete these if they are totally unrelated or automated spam, which is 100% expected. Remember quality content drives visitors! Usually a blog will have a trackback url on their blog or posts which you will use in your post to create the trackback url and free back link. This technique is a valuable tool for internet marketing and is highly successful if used correctly.

#5 – Do-Follow Blogs

When you do blog comment marketing, the first thing to remember is that all back links are NOT created equal. There are two different types of back links and it’s important that you utilize the correct backlinks or the hours of work you put in for promotion will be effectively useless. No-follow links are the back links you want to avoid. Most blogs as standard template design will use no-follow links in the comments section of their website. Your job is to find websites that use Do-follow links which search engines will follow and use as back links for your website. These back links will make your authority rating for the search engines such as Google higher, which in turn will help you obtain higher rankings in the search engines.

There are a few simple techniques to use when trying to find these Do-follow blogs. Open up www.google.com and search for ““Comments links could be nofollow free” This is a plugin that allows blogs to convert their comments to Do-follow links which is what you are looking for.

One more search string is to search for “comment luv” which is a wordpress plugin that does the exact same thing. Although most of these sites will be Do-follow links some just say it as to gain more comments. To find out if it’s a do-follow link in the firefox browser is easy. To check if it’s a do-follow comment link try the following:

1. Open Firefox and head over to the blog your interested in obtaining a comment back link from.

2. Hover over the name of one of the names of someone who has already commented on the article. Look in the bottom left hand corner of your screen to see which website they linked to.

3. Hit ctrl + u to open up the source of the website

4. Hit ctrl + f to search this source for the name of their linked website.
A no-follow link will be listed as:

a href="http://jarwadi.wordpress.com/" onclick="" rel="nofollow"

The part here you need to look at is the rel="nofollow" – As this means this backlink will be relatively useless.. unless the blog has enough visitors as to where you receive traffic just from people clicking on your name.

The type of link you’re looking for to promote and market is listed as: rel="external"

Utilizing these marketing and promotional techniques will take your website or blog to a whole new level and enable you to capture the top money making spots in the major search engines.

Hi lillyruth. Currently your blog does not utilize do-follow. You can change your comments to do-follow on blogger (aka blogspot) by using the technique found here: http://webstractions.blogspot.com/2007/05/removing-nofollow-from-blogger-styled.html

(this part is not for you lily)

Please note.. if your using the classic blogger templates you will not be able to change your comments to do-follow. Read the above link for an explanation.

Hope this helps

Article marketing is a great way to promote a product, service, website or blog. Article marketing means marketing yourself with articles and it’s easy to do if you know how. It gives you back links and the more backlinks you have to your website, the higher your PR will rise in the search engines.

All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

The Internet has brought media to a global audience. The interactive nature of Internet marketing in terms of providing instant responses and eliciting responses are the unique qualities of the medium. Internet marketing is sometimes considered to be broad in scope because it not only refers to marketing on the Internet, but also includes marketing done via e-mail and wireless media. Management of digital customer data and electronic customer relationship management (ECRM) systems are also often grouped together under internet marketing.
