It is true that the paid per click advertising is the fastest method to get traffic to your website, but not everyone can afford that, not everyone can have success with that, the competition is very tight, (I know advertisers which are spending ten thousands dollars per day on AdWords campaigns and are using one million keywords in their campaigns), so, when you are new in town, you don’t have too much chances to succeed, unless if you come up with something unheard and unseen, and then nobody will look for it.
The free targeted traffic provided by the search engines is the most costless and the safest option for you to run an e-business. But, when you launch a new website, it is a little bit hard to get noticed by the search engines, and even then, it takes time to rank high, because one of the point of view of the search engines in categorizing a website is the age, and they are right, it takes time to gain popularity. So, one of your chances to gain popularity is to gather back links to your website. There are the well known methods, like article marketing, blogging, lenses in Squidoo, Hub pages, search engines and web directories submission, but I want to give you a tip about a special back link, which is right in the Google’s backyard. It’s called “Google Profiles”.
Type in Google Search “Google Profiles”, and you will be pointed at the Google’s page with the profiles of the owners of Google accounts. If you don’t have a Google account you can open one for free in few minutes, and in about ten minutes you can set up your Google profile. You will have to fill the form which is provided there, but you can give only the information you desire (I suggest you to give correct information, if you want to keep something for yourselves, leave the space blank, and that’s it, you don’t have to lie), and here comes the best part. Google will search all the websites which you own on the net, and gives you the possibility to add the ones which are not yet in his database. And here is your back link to Google and your way to notice Google that you have a new website.
More than that, although Google does not allow you to add tags to your profile, he invites you to post your profile in your “Google Readers” account, and there you can add all the tags you want. If you don’t have a “Google Readers” account, open one for free. It is very useful and you can post there bookmarks of all your published articles, blog posts, Squidoo lenses and Hub pages, gaining more exposure for your website.
