By: Tracie Johansen
1. Trade links with other web sites. Go to a search engine
and type in words from your keyword list. This way you
can find other sites in your target area. Go to each site
and find out if the site would complement your site.
Send the owner of the web site a request to exchange links.
2. Write a Free eBook and give it away. Or find other Free

willing to put your ad in their eBook in exchange for
promoting it in your eZine. You can put your ad in my eBook
