It's no secret

One successful strategy in particular is to search out web sites that are currently receiving growing amounts of internet traffic and then see whether you can advertise or place a reciprocal link on their site. Why would someone with a high traffic site want to help me out you ask? Well there a few reasons why, firstly money it’s no secret you might have to pay to have advertising presence but in many scenarios it is well worth it. Sometimes for as little as $100 a year you can get a click through banner advertisement on a high traffic website.

How to get presence
So how do I get in contact with someone operating a high traffic generating website? It’s best to try the ‘contact us’ section of a website. If there is a form, try to make your message to the attention of the webmaster. High traffic websites usually have a webmaster whose responsibility is to manage the banner displays and reciprocal links for a web page. Some high traffic websites will even have an advertising section with rate information. For those that don’t have an advertising section, try negotiating a rate that is comfortable to you. Sometimes it’s best to enter agreements that are month by month or are flexible enough to let you exit the agreement. This way you can see how much traffic your ads or links are getting which will determine the overall effectiveness of the ad.
