    Getting traffic is a combination of a lot of things. The key to success is to create great content that visitors want to use, search engines will love and other websites will naturally link to. Of course, it's easier said than done.

    You can use pay per click advertising in the search engines to reach audiences looking for your products. You can use Google Adwords http://www.google.com/adwords or Yahoo http://searchmarketing.yahoo.com

    Here are some shoestring marketing ideas that can help you get the visitors you need at the least cost possible:

    1. Create the best content you can with the best products you can possibly offer. Your content is your best advertisement - if visitors love your content, then they will go back and spread the word to others.

    2. Make it easy for users to recommend your site. Viral marketing is very important -- and easy to tap on the Web. But give your users the tools. Get a Recommend this Site script from websites such as cgiscripts.com and similar directories of scripts. Some even go as far as giving incentives to those who recommend the site to their friends. If only 10 people go to your site, but these 10 people invite 10 more - that's additional traffic that you get for FREE!

    Recommend Site Scripts (various) http://php.resourceindex.com/Complete_Scripts/Webs...

    Big Nose Bird Recommend this Site http://bignosebird.com/carchive/birdcast.shtml

    CGI Resource Index http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/...

    Hostscripts http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs...

    3. Rank well in the search engines (organic search results, not the pay per click). SEs can be a big source of traffic. The key is to create the best content in your niche. If you have good content, other websites will gladly link to you and offer your site as a resource to their audience. Check the on-page factors and be sure to get linked from authority sites in your topic area.

    If you are going to read only one piece on search engine optimization, I suggest you read Brett Tabke of WebmasterWorld.com's "Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone: 26 steps to 15k a day." http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum3/2010.htm

    4. Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as $650 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to your website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if your press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News.

    5. Submit articles. Write articles and submit them to websites accepting author submissions. You get exposure for your business; establishes you as an authority in your field, and allows you to get backlinks for your website. If 50 websites publish your article and it contains a link back to your website, then you easily get 50 links from a single article. The more links you have, the greater your chances for increasing your search engine rankings.

    Here is a comprehensive list of where to submit your articles http://answers.yahoo.com/question/;_ylt=AhzreGmnCU...

    6. Improve your conversion. Getting visitors is one thing; getting them to buy your products is a whole different story. Read the article " How To Sell More on the Web: 30 Tips To Increase Conversion Rates For An Ecommerce Site " http://www.powerhomebiz.com/092006/ecommerce.htm for tips on how to improve your conversion rates.

    7. Post a link to your site for free where it is allowed (always read the Terms of Use). Examples are:

    Craigslist http://www.craigslist.com

    Google Base http://base.google.com

    Classifieds for Free http://www.classifiedsforfree.com/...

    Text Link Exchange http://www.txtswap.com/

    Recycler.com http://www.recycler.com/

    Yahoo Classifieds http://classifieds.yahoo.com/

    US Free Ads http://www.usfreeads.com/

    Put a link to your site on your other sites (if you have any), your blogs, signatures in forums, everywhere you are ehere people may be interested. Put up soemthing interesting that will make people want to link to it themselves as well, and affiliate with similar sites. Word of mouth is GOLD, beleive me. My fansite is extremely popular in my fanbase, receiving over 1000 hits (that may not seem like much, but it's a small fanbase) so far, and I've never paid a cent for advertising. It was all made possibly throuh putting links everywhere.

    I found a really good book at my local library called "Marketing without Money" by Nicholas E Bade. The book offers 300 tips on promoting a business, online and offline, at low or no cost and is worth the time to read. A website won't do you any good if nobody can find it so the goal is to get that address out to the target market of buyers. Getting hits is great but getting sales is what it's all about. Find out how!!!

    Ready here are some tips for free until the meter runs out. Optimize your site, clean up the html and make it search engine friendly. Choose your keywords carefully and include it in your original content. Never submit it to automatic search engine submission sites. Write an article and post it. Start a blog and regularly update it. Leave your links on everything you do and go to. Answer comments on high page rank blogs and articles with you site and keywords. Ok thats it, about one zillionth of what is necessary but it is a start.

    Put the keyword tag in your META tag:

    http://www.mcli.dist.maricopa.edu/tut/tut24.html

    That site will tell you how, rather than having me explain the process to you.

    This tag will have search engines bring up your site depending on what the user types into the search engine.
