Promote your website thru Classifieds

by Chuck Pounds

Everybody talks about planning, building and getting your website listed in the search engines. So you did your homework. You have a website, fairly good content, submitted to the search engines, now you sit back and wait for the visitors to come by and check out your concepts and sign up. But while you are waiting how do you get visitors to your website?

Only if it was that easy. But, that is a good start. Now you want to promote it and get noticed. How do I go about that? Well, that's what we are going to discuss.

There are many ways to promote and advertise your website on the Internet. One of the most affective ways, that we are going to discuss in this article, is thru classified ads. They do work. You have to be persistant and learn. See what works for you and be willing to change your approach, ad, title, and where to advertise.

A good place that brings results is Adland Pro. Why here? They have it all. Free classifieds, your own community, traffic exchange and more. You can check it out here...


And another excellent site...


You can also find classified sites to submit your ad to by going to the major search engines and search "classified advertising", "classifieds", "free classifieds" and test the websites that appear.

Classifieds require patience and time to learn what works and what doesn't. When properly used and the right ad material written, much can come from using classifieds ads. Software is also available to make return visits and ad placing simple and quick.

Now, your thinking, how do I know this is working for me? Good question. What you want to do is track your results by using some type of url tracking system. We use Result Tracker. Easy setup and real time stats. You can review it here...
