How do you get more traffic to your discussions, and get more responses? Do you advertise, use search engines? what are the secrets to get the most bang for your buck!??? I just joined another sight that pays me for articles. I need more traffic. Any suggestions?

There are a few ways. You could put a signature link on your out going emails. I have found this useful. I also use trafficspawn.com You can place a banner here. Biz cards are good too. You can get free ones at vistaprint.com

One that I have not done, and I need to, is to put links on your profile here at myLot. It is a good way to let people here know what you are doing.

when you build up a friends list and answer their discussions they normally reciprocate, that is all that I have done over the two years that I have been here.

I think you right. I am also looking for a way to drive more traffic to my hubpage and Associate Content now.

I don't really do anything on other sites, I just figure that if I visit other people's discussions, post discussions that are hopefully interesting and reply back to people that they will want to visit my discussions.

This is how I feel about discussion also. Some will be interested and some won't. I am still looking for more way to drive more traffic to other areas though.

Hi LouiseKnittel, When I first started here I had very few response but as I built up friendships I gradually got more to each dicussion, I always respond to all responses as not only is it polite to do but have discovered that it keeps the discussion at the top of the discussions friends have started list if they are not answering from notification each time a new repsonse is given, coverage is the answer and to get your discussion into the daily digest also helps generate more responses too. I love it here and really my only advice is to keep posting, keep responding and most importantly keep having FUN and the money will become secondary but will come. I have no referrals but manage to average a $30 + per month. Ellie :D

Wow Ellie you must be a very fast typist. I am not averaging even $10.00 a month so far. I try to do it all as fast as I can. By there is some kind of a truck to all this that I just do not know.

Hi Louise, I have also noticed but don't know for a fact but discussions I start at approx 10pm GMT time and are active on until midnight quite often end up in the digest so the time of posting could possibly be a factor too but no trick that I am aware of. Also I believe if you type over four lines to each response that also pays more and if you get a best response that pays too. Huggles Ellie :D

Are you just looking for traffic? If so then you have to find out how much you kmake off of the traffic. Is it .0025 per hit? Some of the best ways is to find traffic sites, where you can visit sites and in return exchange the money for traffic.

The question was are you looking for traffic or referrals in a program? If you are looking for people to just see your site you can do that rather easily and inexpensively. For signups it will cost a bit more. Does that help?

Hi, I do not know about most of the writing sites, but I would be interested in hearing about the new one you have joined. I am in Helium, with just a little content. Here on MyLot the secret is to add lots of friends. The same on Gather. Both of those, if you add friends and actively respond to them, they usually do the same. In fact I respond whether they respond to me or not. Why don't you pm me about this other one you have joined.
