The call came late one Friday afternoon. The man on the phone spoke with a fervour seen only in sales people with something to sell.

He was offering the opportunity to receive 'targeted' visitors to my site. In return, I would be locked into a contract that required I continue to pay a monthly fee for one full year.

He was vague about where all this traffic came from, and why it was especially suitable for my business. I declined his offer because I have no faith in either the targeting ability or integrity of bulk traffic suppliers.

Besides, I already know hundreds of low-cost/no-cost ways to get targeted visitors to my site.

This article is the first in a series that explains how you can get targeted visitors to your site. I'll share 25 of my favourite techniques, every one of which is free.
