Over 1000 Free Advertising Opportunities
We have put together a list of the best free advertising opportunities online so that you can promote your blog or website content without having to spend hundreds, if not thousands or dollars, pounds or euros every month getting traffic.
The whole purpose of your website or blog is to be seen by as many people as possible, and the best way to do that is to place links to your content in as many places as possible. The more popular the locations of your links, and the more enticing your links are, the more traffic you will attract.
Different advertising media often suit different niches or content, so you will need to experiment with your content in order to find the best traffic streams for you.
If you create quality content on your site and then drive targeted traffic, then that content will stick around, sign up to your newsletter and become a fan of your site.
Digg can be a great source of traffic for your blog, however, there are a few important rules to remember if you want to get that traffic;
- Don’t Digg your own posts first – Get someone else to Digg them for you.
- Digg the original of the content, or a page that adds value to the topic
- Digg a few pages at the same time, not just your own stuff
- Good Titles and Descriptions are vital
- Be active on Digg to get results… it’s about interaction, not just ‘transmitting’ your content.
SU is the equivalent of channel surfing the internet. The other advantage of StumbleUpon is that you only need a few likes in order to get hundreds of new visitors to your site.
SU can deliver a whole lot of quality traffic to your door if you know how to make it work for you.
Important things to remember about StumbleUpon;
- Stumble others pages as well as your own.
- Be active and engage with other users
- Follow similar stumblers interested in the same things as you.
- Make sure your web content is well laid out and easy to understand and engage with.
- Use compelling Titles and Descriptions
- You have the time it takes for your page to load to capture your readers attention
Dropjack is a much smaller site than Digg, but still a good resource for you to post your quality content.
Redgage allows you to submit your content, and then get paid when people view it. Redgage can be a great source of additional free traffic to your blog content, and you can earn a little at the same time.
Write a Top 10 List about something you know about and submit it to Best Reviewer. Not only will you get a link through to your content, but you will earn some cash too….
Web 2.0 Blogging Sites
Web 2.0 blog sites tend to rank very well in Google and the other major search engines. In order to capitalise on the strength of their ranking ability, you need to create an account with each web 2.0 site, and add unique high quality articles that link through to your main blog content.
Think of them as feeder sites, gathering traffic for you and steering it to your main content. Some people use them as their main sites, but for monetization reasons we wouldn’t recommend this. Many web 2.0 sites have limitations on the ads you can include, so will limit your options if they are the main focus of your content.
The best ones we recommend to get you started are;
Yahoo Answers is a great resource for bloggers as you can build free traffic to your blog by answering questions about your niche.
All you need is a Yahoo account to get started and then you can offer assistance to people with questions.
A big bonus is that Yahoo answers tends to rank in Google quite well so they receive traffic from many different places, all of which will find your answer (with a link back to your blog – naturally!)
Free Classified Ads
There are lots of free advertising sites online. Many take the form of free classifieds with paid options if required, but you can get your link added on them for nothing which makes them a great place to build cheap traffic streams to your blog content, products etc

Article Submission Directories
Submitting your articles to directories is a great way to build traffic to your main content. Again, these should be considered to be feeder sites, gathering traffic to push it through to your main content and sales funnel.
