|Tip 15: Start Writing
Articles For Other Websites!
Submitting your articles to authority sites is where the real traffic
lies. Authority sites usually have thousands, or tens of thousands, of
links that lead back to them. Having your article displayed on one of

it into the text area, and then click post. If not, just write a short
paragraph or two explaining the benefits of your website and what you
offer. Since it is an ad and it's in the right section, you won't have
to worry about it being deleted or you being banned.
Don't spam the forum! Do NOT post your ad in other sections; otherwise
people will see it as blatant advertising and you will be banned. Plus,
nobody likes a spammer.

But you'd be surprised at how many people check out the fre.e ads
section from time to time to see if there are any great offers. And at
the very least, the other people posting ads will be able to see yours.
It probably won't amount to a lot of traffic, but every little bit
And just so you know, the forums don't necessarily have to relate to
your niche for you to post your ad; but it does help.
