Make sure you submit your site to the major search engines and directories. There is no point in having a site unless you promote it. We have listed the major internet players by category below. Make sure you go to each one and submit your site. Generally only the front or index page is more than sufficient.
Go to the "pay per click" engines and bid for search terms. This costs a few cents per click and is a no brainer way of getting your site found. The site with the highest bid ranks number one and the top three positions are prime spots. This is a hundred percent sure fire way of getting traffic. You pay and they click. The biggest player is Yahoo Search Performance. The minimum account costs just $25 and is well worth the money. Sign up here for an account at Yahoo Search Performance. The second great source is Google Adwords. With Adwords, you can put traffic through your site in just 15 minutes. Get a Google Adwords account here.
Submit your site to the search engines:-
- When you start out nobody knows about your site. You have to tell the search engines about your site. Logically the more places you are listed in the more likely you are to be found. The more traffic you get, the greater the exposure and the greater the likelyhood of signing up new members. In this day and age this is time consuming. Search Engine Blaster solves the problem in an effective and cost efficient way. Download their free flash presentation and see for yourself.

So just exactly what is a traffic exchange? Ok here is how it works - you have an internet browser right? This is what you use to look at other websites. Your browser which is most likely Internet Explorer or Firefox or Opera has to start somewhere on some page. A traffic exchange swaps vistitors to your site for you looking at someone else in the exchanges' site. So we need to set our homepage so we can look at the other guy's site and in return the exchange will send a visitor to your site. Every visitor is a potential customer. We suggest belonging to five exchanges in order to spread your exposure. When you have joined, put the start pages for each exchange in a rotator and then set the rotator page as your home page. This way every time you start, you will get a credit and you will have driven one more visitor to your site. The rotator we use is at FreeRotator.com.
If you would like to get the full benefit of the traffic exchanges, download FireFox from Mozilla. Its free and more importantly it's a tabbed browzer which means you can have mutiple surfer windows open. Join all five exchanges below - or at the very least the free ones. Install the Instant Buzz tool bar for Fire Fox and then go do the tutorial at Get Yours Free. Set your Firefox browser up exactly as described in the tutorial and you can rack up surf credits with great efficiency.
If you have the very latest version of Firefox, simply go to each one of the traffic exchange start pages and bookmark them all in one seperate new folder. When you next want to surf for credits, go to that bookmark folder and click open in tabs and away you go! NB! if you are not a member of Instant Buzz, please make sure you read our Instant Buzz Page BEFORE you join. This is important!
Now please sign up for the exchanges below.
If you are having trouble setting up your traffic exchanges, please get our FREE GDI Super Email Course which has all the instructions on a blow by blow basis in lessons 2, 3, 4 and 5.
Remember paid traffic exchanges are for serious players and tend to be junk free. For the full story on how to optimize your exchange traffic download StartXchange's traffic exchange how to's entitled "The Traffic Exchange Manual by StartXchange"! Get it for free here!
One last tip - DO NOT join a bazillion traffic exchanges. You cannot possibly surf them. Join 20 to 30 really good ones and you will get the maximum benefit!
The following list is shortened just to get you started and you should belong to ALL the TE's below. We actually use them a great deal and if you are really serious, you will find a more comprehensive list here.

Top Surfer allows you to upgrade to wholesale for just $10 a month. This is not subscription based and you have to upgrade manually each month so you are not locked in. The trick is the $10 goes to your upline not Top Surfer. So if you refer just one person you recover $10. If you refer 2 people you pay for your GDI site as well.
