Free Advertising - Free Classified Ads
TrafficSwarm may be the best free Internet advertising source that you can use to promote any website or link.They have a network of over 145,000 member/websites that will display your advertisement with your website link over and over.
You start with a number of free credits and can earn credits easily simply by visiting other websites.
You'll receive targeted traffic where people CHOOSE to click on your advertisement, not "fake" or "computer-generated" traffic.
You can earn even more credits by setting your home page to your TrafficSwarm link.
They also reward you for referrals and give you more credits for them.
Your account can be upgraded to double most of your credits and award you with thousands of credits each month.
If you really want to begin developing an income and a steady stream of traffic, I URGE YOU to join this free system. I'm already seeing nice results from my TrafficSwarm account and have had my advertisements displayed thousands of times for hundreds of hits.
Free Pay-per-click Search Engines
I knew that if I wanted results, the search engines were the best place for my advertisements. I knew that those "free mass submission" services didn't work, and that the pay-per-click engines would be the best place for an ad with a link to my website. There are many small pay-per-click search engines that will give you a FREE account balance so that you can try out their services and get free hits. You can usually bid yourself to #1 spots pretty easily. They don't have as much traffic as the big search engines, but having many of these accounts will accumulate the hits. I probably got about 50 referrals from search engines like these:
Kanoodle.com is a larger pay-per-click engine, who also gives away a $5 starting account.
Keyword ideas: free money, get paid to take surveys, get paid, free, getpaid, make free money, paid surveys, free surveys
The more targeted keywords you can think of, the better you'll do.
Keep your bids low enough to conserve your balance, but high enough to get you near the top listings. It may be a free account, but overbidding can run it out quickly.
Look for free pay-per-click accounts that have a "CatchAll" feature. Most people won't turn down a chance at "free money" and a catchall is a good way to get extra hits.
Look for free pay-per-click accounts that have a "Featured" listing on the home page. Bidding on the word featured can get you on the homepage for a reasonable cost sometimes.
Manually submitting listings is fine, but when you get more serious, use their "Mass Keyword Submission" feature. I keep a Word document that contains everything (title, url, description, keyword, bid) for HUNDREDS of keywords for SurveySavvy and other affiliates. Most of these small ppcs are made by Smartsearch, and have the same input features. This makes it easy to cart keywords from ppc to ppc. It takes some practice, but you'll figure it out.
