Free Website Traffic Resource - Yahoo Groups

Yahoo has a ton of groups that you can sign up for and many of them have subscribers in the tens of thousands of people.

Now, I don't know about you, but I think sending a message about my business to a group of 10,000 people willing to receive it is a GOOD thing!

Head on over to, and you will find a large directory of Yahoo Groups. Find the ones that relate to your particular business topic.

Once you have done that you will need to sign up for all of them (or as many as you can). It doesn't take too long to sign up for each one but there might be hundreds to thousands of them on your topic so you should only sign up for the most relevant ones.

After you sign up... read the rules for EVERY group you sign up for. Make sure you follow the rules for the group so you don't getted banned from the group or in trouble for spamming.

From my experience I have found 2 main ways to get free traffic using the Yahoo groups...

The first one is to submit a business article, business advice, or anything else informative and of VALUE to the group. Obviously you will provide a link to your site and a little blurb about yourself at the end so you can get the free advertising for your business.

The second way to get free traffic from Yahoo groups is to submit an actual ad for your business. ONLY do this in the groups that ALLOW it. However, you won't find many that do. The ones that do allow blatant advertising are usually full of ads so they it won't benefit you much. Even so, this can work but you will have to do it a lot ... sorta like free classifieds.

I highly recommend you stick to the first tactic but the second one can work too if you have the time and the patience.

OK, there you go... I have just told you a way to advertise your business to a targetted list of thousands of people for free.

Until next time... Have a great day! Now go and get that free traffic to your website.

Dedicated to your business success,
Trent Brownrigg
