This article will list some of the best, free traffic sources that people are using to generate organic traffic this year.

You’ve probably heard of most of these sources, but it’s always good to refresh.

Besides, I’ll throw in a few angles on how you can exploit each one for even more traffic.

TikTok

Everyone’s heard of TikTok–the social media app that has 90% of today’s youth dancing like idiots.

Yeah, that one.

7 Things Every Marketer Needs To Know About TikTok

Most people haven’t actually given TikTok the light of day in terms of marketing.

I really can’t believe that people haven’t started exploiting the traffic for all its worth. You can literally get your content in front of millions of people, targeted traffic as well.

All you have to do is:

  • Throw up some content; a few seconds long
  • Put in a few hashtags
  • Write a keyword-rich description
  • Boost your video with some views and likes

If you’re struggling to go noticed, then buy a few TikTok views and likes, and you’ll soon be raking in the hits. Especially if you hit the “for you page”.

You can buy many thousands of TikTok views for cheap on SEOClerks — a market place where people sell views and followers .etc

This is a “no-brainer” this year; make sure you’re putting out content that points people to your brand, site, or content. Then boost with a few SEOClerks services.

Reddit

Reddit is a fantastic way to flood your content with traffic. Just find a subreddit that’s related to your content, or would at least welcome it, and post a link.

The “Reddit hug” is a term used by internet folk when Reddit crashes your site, so be careful what you wish for.

Another reason why I love Reddit is that it ranks well on Google. I have a number of Reddit posts that still generate traffic to my articles now.

And many of my Reddit posts outrank my blog for the same search time, despite there being a direct link!

Benefits of posting on Reddit

  • Reddit has loads of traffic
  • Rewards good posts
  • Ranks well on Google
  • Has targeted traffic in niche subreddits

VOAT

VOAT is a Reddit alternative, it offers you another source of traffic where you can post your links!

Once you’ve posted to Reddit, post to VOAT. It’s a pretty simple tool you should be putting in your arsenal.

Try not to copy and paste across both sites; Google doesn’t like duplicate content.

Make your post is somewhat different every time you post it. Even if its just a rehash, make it unique every time.

Benefits of posting on VOAT

  • Another place you can literally paste a link
  • Rewards good content
  • Targeted communities
  • Basically the same as Reddit

Facebook

This is obvious. Facebook has billions of users, so where better to post your links?

Facebook, incase you couldn't guess.

Start a niche page or group, and post to groups that already exist in the niche you’re trying to promote.

Honestly, owning a group is an asset. You get to repost whatever crap you like, as much as you like. But, to really bleed facebook for all it’s worth, you should hold off on spamming links straight away.

Benefits of sharing content on Faecbook

  • Everyone is on Facebook
  • Posts are searchable
  • You can control the narrative if you own a group or page
  • The traffic is already there

StumbleUpon (MIX)

Now, this site is great if you’re trying fish some extra traffic. What used to be StumbleUpon, is now MIX. And they send suggested content to their users based on the user’s past reactions to the content they’ve viewed.

Twitter

Again, we’ve got another no-brainer. You can build a following by posting relevant content, then start dropping your CPA offers. It’s really simple, straightforward. Make use of hashtags too.

Instagram

One of the hottest social media platforms right now is Instagram. But, you need to post images and videos.

On the flip-side, the added effort means you get more traffic, more interactions, and more engagement than you would on sites that don’t utilize these media formats

Quora

Back in the day, the goto site for answering questions was Yahoo Answers; you might remember it …

Well, Quora soon stole the market and has a huge thriving community of people looking for information. People just gerning to click on your links.

Basically, if you’re providing people with answers, spam your content.

Of course, don’t spam it like it’s crap; provide some substance, make people think that you’re answering legitimately, but slip in that underhand link.

As you answer more questions, the Quora algorithm will suggest more questions like that one you’ve answered. That way, you can advertise your content on a rolling basis!
