0 10 Untapped Traffic Sources

Reviewing my blog’s poll results (see on the right), I’ve noticed that most of my loyal readers are interested in traffic generation sources. And that’s no suprise, knowing that traffic=money:)
Instead of covering well-known sources like SEO, video marketing, article marketing which probably you already know anyway, I’ve decided to take a look at 27 completely different (untapped) type of traffic sources that is working very well for me. So, if you are ready, let’s dive into it:
dive into it:
1. Image/Photo Sharing
There are many image sharing sites, such as, where you can share your images (in any niche) and include a link to your own site/blog. Here’s a complete list of photo sharing sites you can use:
Did you know, that you can share a .doc or .pdf files with your link included inside the document? These doc sharing sites gets a decent amount of traffic and can bring you some nice amount of visitors to your site/blog in a short period of time. Here’s a top 20 document sharing sites:
3. traffic.
eBay is one of the biggest internet sites on the internet. And as with other big sites out there, there’s always a way to get a slice of that traffic. You can do this by selling reports and e-books you write in your niche (write some useful how-tos and sell them for very low price, the point in this case is the traffic, not the money). Also you can create an about page , where you can put a link to your blog/site.
Craiglist is the most trafficked classified ad site on the internet. I’ll be honest with you, I haven’t used craiglist yet, however I’ve heard some incredible success stories who cracked the code of craiglist. One thing to keep in mind, that most of the CPA networks don’t accept craiglist traffic, so your best option is to send them to a squeeze page, build a list and then promote stuff through email marketing.
Craiglist traffic can work for any niche: bizz-op, dating, free stuff, local lead gen.. you name it.
You can also try these classified ad sites:
6. Misspelled domain traffic
This goes more into the grey hat area. I’m not doing this nor do I recommend, however I’ll cover this anyway if you want to take a risk:)
Miss-speled traffic is essentially a traffic that comes from missspelled web addresses. For example, there are millions of people everyday typing into the address bar, a small % of these people sometimes make a mistake and put by mistakenly clicking “pp” instead of “oo”. So, if you owned I bet you’d received a great amount of traffic every single day. Get the point?
This is just an example, however you can still use this idea on other websites. Here’s a hint: trending events. Such us popular movies. At this moment when I’m writing this article, The Dark Knight Rises is all over the place. Having this in mind, you can buy all sort of variation domain names:, and etc. I’m not 100% guarantee you will see traffic with this, however if the website or the event is super popular, I’ve no doubt you will see some traffic coming in.
7. Coupon traffic
If your business offer coupon codes for your product or services (and I highly recommend you do), don’t forget coupon directories. People love discounts and coupons. is a living example. Make sure you add your coupons to the following coupon/deal of the day directories: (Forum) (Forum)
Above sites are hugely popular and get incredible amount of traffic everyday. Don’t have a coupon code yet? I’m gonna write a whole post on creating a coupon code for your product/service very soon. Coupons are great not just because it increases conversions, but succesfully combining it with social/incentive aspects, your coupon code can go viral at the speed of light.
8. Podcasting traffic
People love video, but they also love audio too. Podcasting is a great way if you are shy in front of the camera and feeling more comfortable talking in to the microphone. Podcasting can be used for any niche. What I like about podcasting is that it highly improves your credibility and authority. Especially if you are interviewed by other person. Very powerful stuff. (podcast category) (Christian) (Blackberry) (Zune)
9.Tutorial traffic
Tutorials are a HUGE untapped traffic source online. If you have a website related to graphic design, wordpress, web development, SEO, marketing, or programming, then you can use tutorials to send thousands of visitors to your website.
Some of the popular tutorial sites: (Graphics/Photo/Programming) (Web design and marketing) (photoshop, coding, video, etc) (computer related) (Programming) (web, video, audio, etc) (photoshop & coding) (Design) (Web design) (Graphics related)
(there are dozens more)
10. Ebook traffic
There are plemty free and paid ebook sharing website where you can upload your own eBook.
Here are some of them: (Free ebooks category) (Free ebooks category) (Kindle version)
