Do not be left behind. Every penny is worth it with using Google and Yahoo’s advertising as long as it’s done correctly and not hap hazzardly.
2) Exchange or Trade Links with other sites
If you’re doing link exchanges with other sites, both of you will benefit from the efforts both of you do to enhance your sites traffic. When one site features another sites link, they will provide one another with the traffic that each of them generate. The efforts are doubly beneficial because it would seem like both of you are working to generate more traffic. The more links traded with more sites, the more traffic that each could receive. It’s a win-win situation.
3) Use Viral Marketing
Viral marketing allows you to spread the word about your company and product without the out of pocket expense.

With this method, people get infected with the creativity and entertainment of the medium that they will pass it on to many people.
4) Search and use proper keywords or keyword phrases for your sites content
Search engines look for certain keywords that you have on your webpages and they show you in their results page. In doing so, having the right keyword and keyword phrase is a high requirement in ranking high in search engine results. You could write your own content or you could hire someone to do it for you.
5) Write Articles that can lead traffic to your site
Submit articles to article directories that contain the same subject that your site deals in. If you sell car parts, write press releases and articles about cars and car parts. Attach your sites description and services at the end of the article as well as the link to your website.
6) Join forums and form online communities
Capture a market and show your expertise and credibility. When you build a good foundation for your site and have great content, people will trust you and will pass it on to many people they trust. Either through email, a newsletter article or their blog. Your traffic will certainly increase, because they know that you can provide what they need.
7) Offer newsletters.
If many people know what you are about and your existence is shared with many others, you will find a loyal following of people that trust and believe in you, in the end they can provide you with more traffic by recommendation. If you arouse the curiosity of your customers they would be pushed to help you with your traffic.
