There’s many strategies to make a website popular, but generally all successful websites have a few things in common: 

  • Content. Useful, engaging content will keep users coming back to your site once they find it. It will also cause users to become advocates of your website and share it with their friends.
  • Advertising. Whether it be online or offline, targeting advertising will let users know your website exists and build awareness.
  • Good SEO (Search Engine Optimisation). SEO allows search engines to know what kind of content you have your site, and helps boost where in search results your site appears so users can find it. This has to do with how you build your site and how your tweak your content so it’s more keyword targeted (apologies to any SEO experts who may have read that and winced at my oversimplification).

Optimize your site for search engines :

Search engines have always been a major way to get traffic for free. That is
why you need to do your homework and optimize your site so that it
ranks well for the keywords you target. SEO is still the most powerful
way to get traffic for free and you really need to invest some time and
efforts in the optimization of your site. SEO is not that difficult
and if you want to get familiar with it in a nutshell, check our SEO
Tutorial. If you are too busy for that, you can start with the 15
Minute SEO article.    

Frequently update the contents of your site :

If you expected some shocking secrets revealed, you might be a bit
disappointed. One of the first steps in getting traffic for free is
trivial but vital – get great content and frequently update it. In
terms of SEO, content is king. If your content is good and frequently
updated you will not only build a loyal audience of recurring visitors,
who will often come to see what is new, but search engines will also
love your site.  
  

Take advantage of social bookmarking sites :

Social bookmarking sites (especially the most popular among them) are
another powerful way to get traffic for free. If you want to learn how
to do it, check the How to get Traffic from Social Bookmarking sites
article, where we have explained what to do if you want to get free
traffic from sites such as Digg, Delicious, etc.  

 

Use your Twitter and Facebook accounts :

Social networks are also a way to get traffic for free. If you are
popular on networks, such as Twitter or Facebook, the traffic you get
from there can easily surpass the traffic from Google and the other
search engines. It is true that building a large network of targeted
followers on Twitter and supporters on Facebook takes a lot of time and
effort but generally the result is worth.  
  

Get links with other sites in your niche :

Another way to get traffic for free is from other sites in your niche.
Getting links with other sites in your niche is also good for SEO,
especially if you manage to get links without the famous nofollow
attribute. But even if the links are nofollow (i.e. they are useless
for SEO), they still help to get traffic to your site. 
  

Use any chance to promote your site for free :

Free promotion is always welcome, so don’t neglect it. There are many ways
to promote your site for free and some of the most popular ones
include free classified ads, submissions to directories, inclusion in
various listings, etc. It is true that not all free ways to promote
your site work well but if you select the right places to promote your
site for free, this can also result in tons of traffic. 
  

Create a free product or service :

Content drives most traffic when you offer something useful. There are
many types of useful content you can create and they largely depend on
the niche of your site. You can have articles with tons of advice, or
short tips but one of the most powerful ways to get traffic is to
create a free product or service. When this product or service gets
popular and people start visiting your site, chances are that they will
visit the other sections of the site as well.  
  

Use viral content :

Free products and services are great for getting free traffic to your
site and one of the best varieties in this aspect is viral content.
Viral content is called so because it distributes like a virus – i.e.
when users like your content, they send it to their friends, post it on
various sites, and promote it for free in many different ways.
 
 

Use offline promotion :

Offline promotion is frequently forgotten but it is also a way to get
traffic for free. Yes, computers are everywhere and many people spend
more time online than offline but still life hasn’t moved completely on
the Web. Offline promotion is also very powerful and if you know how
to use it, this can also bring you many visitors. Some of the
traditional offline ways to promote your site include printing its URL
on your company’s business cards and souvenirs or sticking it on your
company vehicles. You can also start selling T-shirts and other
merchandise with your logo and this way make your brand more popular.  
 
 

Include your URL in your signature :

URLs in forum signatures are also a way to get traffic for free. There are
forums, which get millions of visitors a day and if you are a popular
user on such a forum, you can use this to get traffic to your site.
