Don’t wait for Google: Learn how to get referral traffic to your website:
The one most important way to make money online is when you have people/clients visiting your website and ordering your service or whatever it is you are offering. If you create a site and nobody knows about it – it is no difference from websites that have not been created.
Before we get started with methods to attract referral traffic to your website, here is the difference between direct, organic and referral traffic.

How to Get Referral Traffic

There are three types of traffic that you need to get to your website and they are in a nutshell:

* Organic traffic – This is when search engines like,, bing… etc, find you. Before getting to this stage, you need to have good content on your blog and even better Search Engine Optimization, (SEO)
* Direct Traffic – This happens when people directly went to your website, via bookmarks, typing in the URL example :-D

* And now Referral traffic: Traffic that comes from people visiting your website from links that were placed on other sites is known as referral traffic. (example: If you visit my website by clicking on it here: this is referral traffic from

Before we can talk about how to get referral traffic to our website, it is okay to discuss or refresh our memories on what referral traffic is and that is what we have done above, now lets check out the methods to get referral traffic.

How to Drive More Referral Traffic to Your Website

If you build a new website, it will take sometime before it will be indexed in google and also it may take even longer time before you will start ranking for your targeted keywords, meanwhile, I advise bloggers not to wait for google to send them traffic before making money off their blog. I created a website some few weeks ago and was eager to rank the website and decided to get targeted referral traffic and this is exactly what I did- you can read my Journey on how I will create a niche website making over $200 per month within 60 days. Without much ado, let get started with the topic here.


Banner Ads:

You can get almost instant referral traffic to your website by placing banner

ads on websites in your niche, although this is not free, but if you have a product that you are sure will convert, then you can advertise on websites that have the traffic already.
*Tips* Don’t just place your ads on One website, split test with up to 5 websites and see which one is doing well with your product/service.


Guest Posting:

You know the power of guest posting already, if you don’t, then you are still in the old age :D.
Find out websites in your niches that accept guest posts or sponsored posts and then you can publish your posts on this websites and get quality referral traffic to your website or product.


Get Social:

The power of Social media is no longer a myth, if you are busy, you can hire someone to take care of your social networking… You can generate lot of quality traffic to your website.
A lot of people conclude or assume that social media is just about Facebook and Twitter. There are plenty of other platforms where you should be active in order to drive more referral traffic to your website. These include but not limited to YouTube, Google+, LinkedIn and the recently popular Pinterest.


Join and contribute to forums:

Wherever there are groups of people who are interested in what you offer, then there is nothing stopping you from joining discussion boards to contribute to the discussion and then chip in your links once in a while. Some forums allow users to add links in their signatures. Make use of that.


Answer Yahoo

This is my own sure way to get referral traffic that converts! I have been using yahoo answers for years and until now they have never disappoint me. You will get the most out of yahoo answer if your link is click-able. You will need to have a level 2 and above to make your links to be click-able. If you don’t have one, you can create one or use services from fiver.
One good thing about doing this is that you will at the same time be creating quality white-hat-like backlinks to your website. I told Isaiah Joe from and within a few months of creating his website he is already ranking for some tough keywords and have a PR2! IF you want to diversify your link building, then get started building referral traffic to your site.
See my full list of how to get targeted referral traffic to your website.


This are my method of getting traffic to my niche websites, while i wait for big G to rank me for my keywords, now over to you, what other method are you using to drive traffic to your website? Please do share with us via the comment box.
Thank you and to your Success!

    Hello Frank,

    I must appreciate this entry of yours…for too long a time, bloggers have come to over rely on google to send them traffic. But the sad truth is that Google came and met blogging! It was never the other way round!

    I would add blog commenting…especially commenting on authority blogs and having something reasonable to say that would make both the webmaster and his audience appreciate both your time and effort and not some absurd generic one liners!

    The bottom line? Add value!

    Swapping is with other websites is also a good way to drive referral traffic to your website. Every webmaster is in the same boat as far as creating natural links to their pages and so swapping links is a win-win practice that also looks good to the search engines. With the latest changes to Google’s algorithm, this sort of practice will become a bigger contributor to a good page ranking

  6. Twitter:
    Thanks for the good list.

    I think you missed one vital source of traffic which is “Blog Comments”
    I remember that my friend Amrik able drive to get more than 500 visitor per day in his blog.
    Further I’ll also suggest to use Reddit in regular basis to get good US traffic.

  20. Twitter:
    Nice tips. Can you expand on the Yahoo level 2 and how that works.

  21. Twitter:
    I thought I would give my two cents here since I was going to comment about Yahoo Answers. Basically, every question you answer you get 2 points, and if your answer is chosen as the best answer, then you get 10 points. You earn points for other thing such as logging in and thumbing up an answer.

    It takes a certain amount of points to get to the next level in Yahoo Answer. For instance, I am at level 6 and it says I need 12,662 points to get to the next level (I already have 12, 338 points). So as you can see, it takes quite a few points to move up. Although, for the first few levels, you only have to get 250 points to move to level 2 and then 750 to move to level 3.

    There is much more to it than what I can write here. The whole scoring system is detailed in their ‘points and levels’ section.

    My comment was going to be that some people will report you for invalid reasons, and even disputing the fact doesn’t always get your answer (and link) to stay on the site. I always leave long, detailed answers on Yahoo Answers, and a few of my answers have been reported for no real reason. But, I have never been kicked off Yahoo answers – likely because I do give answers of value.

    Hello Frank Joseph,
    It is a great way to run traffic to website but if the business owner uses both the techniques, the Google and the referral traffic so it will be more beneficial for the successful marketing of the business. Thanks for sharing this information. I am glad to read it!

  25. This post is gives meaning to the quote “never put all your eggs in one basket” cz once a update hits, your organic traffic can do down the drain. So healthy mixture of both is always advisable and suitable as well. Great Post!! shared and tweeted !! cheers !!

  26. Kayla Seah says:

    Thanks for the diverse list! Too often I find myself focusing on one strategy, which builds an incredible amount of traffic for a period of time, only to go off a cliff and never recover shortly after. Contributing on forums has proven to be quite successful, as has being active on Pinterest where my content resurfaces as very popular every now and again.

  27. Leon Bailey says:

    Good read. Definitely would recommend these methods. With banner ads, definitely have to see what a websites traffic is like. Plenty of websites overcharging for ads.

    You’re so on point dear, it isn’t always good to depend on sites like Google for traffic, one of their update might affect you badly leading to a decrease in your site ranking. This is where referral traffic comes in

    Hello; those are all good suggestions. I have a pretty extensive email mailing list that i use to generate a lot of direct links to my site. I sell new and used amusement equipment. so most of my emails will have a photo followed by a shortened version of the item description and a link to the listing on th site where they can see th full description and view mor photos and videos if available. I also use my blog to generate traffic to the site. and i recently recorded my first youtube show video. I’m hoping these will also help but i need to figure out how to add the links to my videos to direct people back to the site. for now i am limited to putting the link in the video description and mentioning it during the video. thanks so much for the post and take care, max

    I like forums, but I often find them to be a needless expense of time; especially because most of them do not allow you to hold signatures till you have completed 100 posts or so. And even when I am eligible, the CTRs on signature links do not seem to justify my time and efforts.

  40. This is interesting! I like the idea of using Yahoo Answers so I may give it a go in the next few weeks.

    According to Reddit,Pinterest and StumbleUpon are the best Places if you want to pick up huge referral traffic.The traffic that you get from these sources is generally of tier 1 countries such as UK and US.

    These are great ways to explore how you can increase ur traffic, at the same time i still think best traffic is coming wfrom google. With the new google algorithm and html5 technologies, js libaries web really going somewhere else now. I think we should change what we know what we used to and start to explore whats new in the area! Thanks for nice ways Frank.

  78. But is it safe to go for the refferal traffic rather than the organic one for the website in a long run and for the matter of earning from adsense as I heard that Adsense pays more if the traffic is more from search engines rather than refferal one

  79. Zebra Themes says:

    I would definitely also recommended not to rely on Google traffic at all… Google thinks they rule but we all must protect our businesses and get our own real traffic.

    All of these traffic sources are great.. Even Yahoo answers. (Even though I have had my old valuable account banned). That was ok though, I went and bought 3 new level two accounts and now use them… Stupid hey?

    Google search engine indexes the websites faster than most other search engines. Yahoo and bing appear to index the whole website a lot slower. Most of my web traffic comes from bing and yahoo. Having quality backlinks will go a long way for bing. And on Yahoo Answers, I was considering it as a good source of web traffic for a site. I have been active there since 2006 and currently at Level 4. Recently, they seemed to have changed their policy a little bit and are waring users who post same links. My violation email stated “In Yahoo Answers you may not post links with the purpose of directing commercial activity to a non-Yahoo site or an email address.” So my advice with yahoo answers is to trend cautiously.
