I try to use as many free traffic programs as I can to increase traffic to my web sites. But does this traffic actually make sales for me? Probably not directly but indirectly they can.
So what are the benefits of free traffic programs? Well the number 1 benefit is that it will boost your traffic. This is the most obvious benefit. But the biggest benefit of free traffic programs is that the more traffic you send to your site the more popular it looks to some search engines.
http://alexa.com actually ranks your site depending on how much traffic it receives. You can actually go to alexa and download traffic and stats buttons or logos to put on your site. This will show you and your users how much traffic you are getting and how many people link to you.
Other search engines such as Ask jeeves , Lycos , MSN , and others use the alexa traffic ranking from your site to help determine how high in their search results your site will be placed. It is also assumed that Go ogle also uses the alexa traffic ranking in its ranking algorithm.
The bottom line is that the more exposure you give to your site from free traffic programs the better your search engine rankings will be. And the higher your rankings in the search engines the more good quality targeted traffic you will get resulting in more sale's and commissions.
There are literally 1,000s of free traffic programs you can join. And surfing all of them for traffic can be a bit of a chore. The Avant browser can help you surf multiple free traffic sites at the same time. It is a valuable tool and a must if you want to join and surf several traffic programs at the same time.
You can download the Avent browser and sign up for several of the free traffic programs that I use by clicking on the following link.
Another great use for free traffic programs is for inflating your rankings on top sites if you use them. Top sites are basically big advertising pages. You list your site with them then they give you a link code to put on your site somewhere. The more traffic you send through that link the higher your advertisement will be placed on the top site.
In the end FREE traffic programs may or my not work out for you. But they are free to join so give them a try. What do you have to loose except the time it takes you to join and surf for credits.
