Here we will concentrate on two reliable methods that work for me personally... "Value" exchange and article writing.
Many affiliate programs simply require you to generate and increase web site traffic to the company site and the visitors are converted into sales and recruits.

Search engine optimization techniques are another way to increase web site traffic but it can be a bit slow. You practically need a mathematics degree and then the search engine "algorithms" are subject to change without notice. All the work (and wait) for nothing.
Over the past few months, "smart pages" have become all the rage. But "tricks" of any kind are usually detected pretty quickly and your web site could be banned. At the very least the "trick" will no longer get you the increase in web site traffic you'd bargained for.
The "business" of search engines... their "product" is to provide relevant search results to those who search (actually, it's eyeballs for their advertisers, but that's another story). Sounds simple.
But when tricks and under-handed tactics begin to influence those results, a search engine's reputation comes into question. Search engine results that aren't content rich and closely approximate the requests of searchers, they lose revenue.
Of course search engines will do all they can to reduce the number of such "bogus" results (can you blame them?), and if you use these methods to "increase" your web site traffic, you are taking a short sighted route which will do your internet business more harm than good.
Do it right and honest, the search engines will deliver targeted traffic to your web site from now, on. Free.
Some time these can be pretty shady and can actually lower your ranking by association.
Still, to increase web site traffic, you need links. Search Engines are using links to help decide how relevant your site is for your most important keywords. But not just any old link will do... the more relevant and higher in value, the better.
Once again, Sitesell to the rescue with Value Exchange.
With Value Exchange, you can link to relevant, quality sites (many of which are SBI web sites) easier than ever before.
However, your site has to be content rich with no tricks hidden up your sleeve. Doing the real work always pays off (in this case with an increase in web site traffic) and will continue to do so.
Two immediate pay-offs of Value Exchange are the traffic from other sites which link to yours, and the boost in search engine rankings, which will drive even more traffic to your site.
Link popularity can be a complicated subject (covered really well in the Site Build It Action Guide. Go to the Value Exchange site to download an excerpt relating to the topic of increasing web site traffic), and it's important to your web site success.
"But won't I lose traffic to these other sites if I post their links on my site?"
Wrong way to look at it. You actually increase the value to your visitors by being a resource where reliable, quality information can be found.
Just one more thing about SiteSell's Value Exchange as a method to increase web site traffic... more like a warning:
Bad sites are removed.
What's a bad site? Sites that have...
*very little content, or low-value content
*too many low-value links (i.e., link farms or banner farms, "free-for-all" links, tons of affiliate links)
*dead sites (i.e., not available)
*sites promoting hate, spam, libel, offensive or illegal activity
You get the picture.
Again, keep your content high quality and everyone wins.
