Cool! Free Traffic!

Come on! All your friends are doing it...

Thanks to Captured Time Books (cool altered journal pictured above) for pointing me in the direction of Link Referral earlier this week. Have you heard of this thing? Here's what their "About Us" page has to say about the Link Referral "concept":

Members directory traffic - By joining, you will be included in our members directory which is visited by our community of over 180,000 members, and thousands of outside visitors on a daily basis. You'll have the opportunity to earn a ranking at the top of your category, absolutely free! Receive valuable feedback from visitors of your website, network with your peers, and give your opinion on other websites in the directory. The more you participate, the more you get in return! (more details)

Referral based traffic - You are probably familiar with the concept of network marketing, well this is a free version of that marketing method - by registering and promoting your linkreferral affiliate link, an exponential growth of 5 levels of referrals can be created (ex. you refer 10 people who refer 10 people each who refer 10 each....), potentially 10,000s of visitors/day all viewing your link prominently in the top spot of our 'Featured Sites' section on our home page for your referral ID. It works because its free, fast to register, easy to implement and no risk. People that are referred from your site will have nothing to lose and everything to gain, just like you. (more details)

Search engine traffic - By registering, you'll benefit several ways, including,

1) having your webpage listing indexed more quickly - the major search engines continuously spider our site, and the sites listed in our directory.
2) Improved search engine rankings and SEO optimization.
3) Indirect search engine traffic via Pages such as your directory listing and your affiliate page listing feature your link and description, are picked up by all the major search engines. Your sign-up description, combined with our strong traffic base (a prime ranking factor for most major search engines) can pull in a significant immediate steady stream of traffic to your listing on and then on to your web site.

A search for "Etsy" yields 1032 results as of this morning. Wow! Apparently I've been missing out! I swear I'm usually the world's biggest skeptic about these things, but several fellow EtsyGreetings members have had quite a bit of success with Link Referral, and try though I might, I've not been able to find a single reason NOT to create an account. A small daily investment of time has honestly yielded a substantial bump in traffic within the past few days. Plus, browsing member links has been a great way to find and promote other great Etsy sellers I might not otherwise have run across. Why not give it a shot, right?
