I wanted to take the time to share with you a few tips that I have learned over time regarding driving free targeted traffic to your website. These tips will enable you to save money and earn more money…which is always a good thing.
1. Get listed on the major search engines
You want to make sure that your site is listed on the Big Three search engines: Google, Yahoo, and Bing. Rather than wait for the search engine crawlers to find your site, submit it directly to the search engine yourself. Then be sure to check back a few weeks later to see whether your site appears in the search engine results.
Google's URL submit is very quick and easy. Just go to Google's web page for URL submitting, type in your URL, type in the message that ensures Google you are an individual not a software robot and click "add URL." You can also submit your site map to Google via their Webmaster Tools.
Since 2010, Yahoo search has been powered by Microsoft's Bing search engine. When you submit your site to Bing you will also show up in Yahoo's search results. See below on how to submit your site to Bing.
Yahoo! Directory also has a paid submission process. The cost is $299 annually for each directory listing that you submit. We recommend submitting your site to the Yahoo! Directory if you are a commercial site. Yahoo! guarantees that your submission will be reviewed within seven business days. If your listing is accepted, the annual fee will reoccur in subsequent years.
Bing allows you to submit your URL, just like Google and Yahoo!. Go to Bing's site submission page, type in the URL of your homepage (this is different than Google and Yahoo!). MSNBot will follow the links from your homepage to all of the pages on your site. Bing also requires you to identify yourself as a person, not an automated program, by typing the characters that you see in the picture.
2. Use keywords effectively – Site Optimization
It is important to optimize your site. There are cases whereby a site can be up and running effectively, but it does not enjoy much traffic. The major factor that leads to this scenario is that the site is not optimized in the right way. To have improved ranking in the search engines, it is crucial to have a site that has focused keywords and the keywords placed in the meta tags in a strategic manner. The keywords should also be placed in the headlines of the pages and placed in the first paragraph of the text.
It is also advisable to place the keywords in the names of the file. Optimization in websites is nothing but placing the keywords and other phrases in the right place. Do your homework to find keywords that fit in with the niche market you are trying to target. Then make sure that your web copy includes them. Great free resources are:
3. Include long tail keywords in your web copy
Long tail keywords are groups of words that form a phrase, as opposed to single keywords. While you should include single keywords in your web copy, you should also structure some of your web pages around longer phrases. The reason for doing so is that the more specific the search term, the more targeted the level of traffic it will drive to your site.
4. Relevant Content
Another thing that a website owner should do to increase traffic is to have as much relevant content as possible in the website. This is a strategy that many site owners tend to ignore, but is very crucial. Having a lot of content in a website helps because the inside pages of a website works like a mini-website, meaning that they act as the entry point in which many people will do their search and which the website can be viewed in search engines. Many pages that have optimized content lead to increased chances of the website being visited or found. Therefore, having much content is one of the ways to drive traffic in your website.
5. Add a news feed to your web site
Adding a news feed containing stories that are relevant to your niche market is another effective strategy that you can use to drive targeted traffic to your web site. By offering your market resources like the news feed that gives them information that they need, you can draw in exactly the kinds of people who are most interested in your products.
The news feed is updated regularly, which means search engine crawlers are kept busy indexing your site on a regular basis. The higher search engine rankings that this strategy will bring means that the people who want to find the kind of quality information that your site offers will be able to find it more easily.
6. Link Building
Another way to increase traffic in your website is to have a high number of inbound links in your website. This helps by ensuring that other websites in the internet have a link to your website which leads to increased traffic on the website. The increased traffic in this case occurs because those surfers who find the links end up clicking through and visiting your website. The popularity that a site is given by links makes it enjoy a higher ranking in the search engines that determines the popularity of a link. Most of the Google search results are mostly determined by the amount of inbound links used in the websites. You can add Inbounds links in your websites by searching for directories where addition url can be made using forms found on the sites.
7. Offer a product for free
On the face of it, this may seem counterproductive. You are looking for ways to increase sales, so why would you give something away? Giving away a short report is a way to create a feeling of goodwill with your prospective customers.
These are just a few tips so that you can use to drive free targeted traffic to your site. There are many more ways that you can drive free targeted traffic to your site. My friend Joshua Mason wrote a comprehensive eBook called Website Traffic Code that reveals top internet marketing secrets that will enable you to drive tons of targeted traffic your way. The best part is you can Download Website Traffic Code For Free Here.

I have had quite a few people ask me how to add a custom optin popup on a website or blog and have it effectively work, so I have created a short video with some additional screenshots that shows exactly how you can do this.
I'm sure we all know the importance of building a list, but just in case you don't, take it from me, it's VERY important! It's also important to utilize every bit of traffic you receive to your website/blog, so if you have an optin form that is not grabbing subscribers attention, then that's nearly as bad as not having one at all.
It really is very simple if you take my advice and use the Aweber method, also, once you have done it once you can use that template for other lists so it's even easier.
I also managed to get a great deal for my subscribers only on a Super High Quality Image to attract those all important subscribers.
The reason I used a very large high quality image was quite simply to attract more subscribers, plus it is a lot harder to miss
Go and take a look at the video and see just how simple it is, please reply to the post if you found it useful.
Links mentioned in video:
Aweber Autoresponder - Absolute essential if you want to succeed online!
GFX-1 Graphics - This is a special link for a high quality optin graphic, but there are many other great graphics on there, I use 'Steve' at GFX-1 for just about everything!

So 2010 is nearly over, phew! What a year it has been!
I'm going to run through a few of the highlights of the year for me personally and let you know what I have been up to, just in case you missed something.
Take a look at my personal highlights, and as kind of a 'thank you' for being a loyal subscriber of mine, and as it's Christmas, I'm going to give $100 to one lucky person chosen at random from all the people who reply to this post with YOUR personal number 1 highlight of the year!
So just hit reply and let me know your number 1 marketing highlight of 2010 and you're instantly in the draw for $100 cash.
OK, so here are my personal highlights of 2010:
January 2010 - After the MASSIVE success of our Multi Profit Websites launch late 2009 my good friend John Thornhill launched his VERY successful Masterclass Coaching Program where he took a handful of students and showed them exactly how to succeed online, step by step. The feedback I received from my referrals to this was awesome, so I know for a fact that it was an amazing success. Incidentally, he has a few spots open at the moment if you're interested.
Then myself and John opened up to the public our Multi Profit Monthly, at first this was a monthly program we offered to Multi Profit Websites customers only, but it was such a great success, that we decided to let everyone in on it. In Multi Profit Monthly each month we reveal what is currently working for us online and provide a ton of content each month to help people succeed. We really enjoy creating the content for this every month, if you're a member then you will probably notice this.
February 2010 - My good friend Omar Martin, along with Mike Filsaime and J.I. Starr launched an excellent media product called VoxFlair, it basically provided people with a means to give their media that professional audio touch, we all know how important media it these days, so I thought that was really great.
Also that month I did something for the first time in my marketing career... I teamed up with John Thorhnill to promote an excellent coaching program by Jit Uppal and Adam Spiel called My IM Mentor, me and John wanted to give our subscribers the best possible deal they could get, so we teamed up and created a truly awesome bonus package to complement this.
March 2010 - The first thing that stood out for me in March was John Thornhill's 72 Hours of Madness sale, it really was an AWESOME package that he put together for people, so as with any great product I compiled another great bonus, I basically offered to create a complete product for anybody who purchased through my link, I also gave resell, and giveaway rights with the product that I created, you can take a look at what I gave people here - No Hype Marketing.

I want to personally thank all of you that took part in my survey, some of the the results were real 'eye openers' to say the least!
I wanted to do a little more with the results than simply announce them, so I went ahead and wrote a report titled:
'Online Marketing – The ‘REAL’ Truth'
Inside the report I have voiced my opinions on a few things, not only the results, but also what I REALLY think about some online marketers!
I also announce my latest creation in there, which has been a long time coming!
I would also love to hear your views on that too.
Please take a read of the report and feel free to hit me with your comments.
You can download the report directly from HERE.
I have also included some images and a web page that you can also use if you wish to give it away.
Thanks again, and I hope you enjoy the report.

As you probably already know Multi Profit Websites (MPW) launches on Tuesday the 27th of October.
Myself and John Thornhill have spent almost 3 years and well over $100,000 developing this product, that we hope will help all you guys out there that struggle to create your own websites.
Multi Profit Websites really is the website anyone can build, without any previous skill or knowledge in 3 easy steps.
We started pre-launch last week and if you haven’t seen our first video you can check it out here:
In that video you will find out how John and I got started and also how powerful MPW really is!
Since we launched that video we have had a ton of questions.
Here are some of the most common questions that we have had, If you have a question please leave a comment below and I’ll get back to you.
Q: Is there a limit to how many websites I can create?
A: No, with our multi user license you can create as many websites as you wish. In fact we encourage you to create as many websites as possible. After all it is possible to create a niche website in well under 30 minutes so you have no excuse for not creating hundreds of sites.
Q: Who hosts the sites?
A: You do, they are your sites and we want you to have full control, this means you host all of the sites you create yourself. Don’t worry if you’ve never hosted a site before as we show you exactly what to do.
Q: How will I generate an income from the websites I create?
A: With Multi Profit Websites it is possiblle to generate an income from the best performing affiliate programs such as eBay, Clickbank, Amazon, Google, Commission Junction and/or a selection of pre selected website affiliate programs (fully customizable) and any other website affiliate programs or your own products. You can even sell your own eBay products from your website! However, the beauty of MPW is you can add/remove as much content as you wish so you really are in full control. Unlike other website builders you are not tied down to one specific affiliate program. In fact if you wish you can remove every affiliate program and just build a content website. It’s up to you.
