Lets face it there are a ton of these FFA sites on the internet(Free For All). It is very easy to advertise your business or offer on these sites as most of them are absolutely free. Before you go hog wild and start posting I want to review how these sites operate or in this case how they do not!
First lets look at the bright side to this form of advertising. There are thousands maybe hundreds of thousands of these sites to post your ad on which in theory will reach thousands of viewers almost instantly, Hooray! free traffic right? Well the ONLY thing good about these sites is how easy it is to post your ad, that is it.
Now for the bad side, you post your ad in hopes to get tons of free traffic but in actuality everyone who posts on these sites are doing the same thing and nobody reads them! this all equates to absolutely no traffic and a big waste of time. But wait it gets even worse. If you use this method of advertising too much there is a good chance that the website you are promoting will NOT get listed in the major search engines like Google and Yahoo. These search engines related websites on these sites as garbage and do not want them on the search results. So you can see how damaging this can be in your marketing efforts. This by the way is the UGLY side of posting in FFA sites if you have'nt already guessed.
My recommendation, stay far away from FFA sites. If you want free effective methods, stick to proven methods like article marketing, press releases and blogging. These are mostly free and have proven over time to help you get indexed in the search engines. In addition I would like to add that with online marketing for the most part if you want to just place ads and be successful you will need to spend some money as you get what you pay for. Some of the higher traffic ad sites include Adpost.com Epage.com and a rising player is postaroo.com out of canada. These sites will offer you good traffic at a reasonable price.
In summary just stay away from FFA sites and if you must place ads use the higher traffic sites like the ones I have listed above. You will save yourself alot of time and frustration knowing that your time is well spent.
