|Website Promotion Tools|
Your Web Site Part 1:
The key to a successful website is putting it in front of your target audience. The key to website promotion is generating traffic to your site, having potential customers review whatever it is you are offering, and hopefully make the decision to buy or join.
In this article, we will break down three site traffic tools and report our results. In Part 2, we will review the logic and strategies behind link partnering, and in Part 3, unravel the mysteries of search engine placement.
Free Site Traffic Tools
We found three different sites, with three different approaches to increasing your site traffic and put each to the test. We used the free option for each of these sites, and did not pay for any additional traffic.

You sign up at Traffic Swarm and receive a unique ID. When you have verified that your email is valid (through the usual click and reply method) you receive 100 free credits. You then have the option to set your home page to the Traffic Swarm page, and earn additional credits each time your home page loads, and by selecting from short ads on that page. Credits vary from 1 to 1000 for each click. The highest we saw so far during testing was 50 credits for one click. The average seems to be about 5.
Pros - When someone clicks on your ad, they've selected it from a page of six other ads. Your ad had some special interest for them (unless they are just randomly clicking, not a very effective way of earning credits on Traffic Swarm as it has anti-cheat measures). If your ad text is compelling enough, and your site is compelling enough, you're going to capture some business from these click throughs.
You earn 100 referral credits for each new Traffic Swarm member you refer. You also earn credits for each credit they earn.
Traffic Swarm reviews all ads for content before activating. It takes less than a day for activation and your ads will start appearing on other Traffic Swarm pages.
Cons - Your audience is other members of Traffic Swarm, who are also promoting their own businesses.
We created four different ads for rotation on the Traffic Swarm pages.
Over a two week period, we tracked 112 click throughs from the ads we created.

Pros: The tracking when you log in to Traffic Multipler is excellent. You see all of the credits you have earned, the last 25 pages where your page was displayed, all referral credit.
If you have active referrals, you can remove the PoliteAd code from your pages and still receive new traffic.
Cons: Your page will definitely be seen and that definitely has a value, however, you need to remember that the people viewing it did not surf there on their own. Your page needs to be compelling, grab their attention, and make them want to know more to convert them into a customer.
