Traffic Drill – Social Bookmarking Community

Traffic Drill

This is a pay membership forum that I’ve been using for a few weeks now.  When I signed up it was $14.95/month, but I’m not sure what they’re charging now.  They guys who run the forum are the Rhodes Brothers, and they sure seem to know their stuff when it comes to internet marketing.  Plus they offer a no-questions-asked money-back guarantee.

The idea is simple yet very effective, in my opinion:

  • Start a thread with details about your site that you want to generate more traffic to, containing:
    • URL
    • Description
    • Keywords
  • Other members then submit your site to social bookmarks (or other backlink sources), such as Digg, StumbleUpon, Delicious, Slashdot, Diigo, Google Reader, etc. etc. etc.
  • You return the favor by doing the same when you see similar requests

This system is huge for building search engine credibility.  It’s one thing to always just submit your own sites to social bookmarks, but if other people are also doing it, it helps that much more.  Plus, the social bookmarking sites won’t be suspicious if you’re submitting many different links rather than your own repeatedly.

To be honest I wish the forum was a bit more active (ie. had more members).  However, more and more folks are joining each day so I wouldn’t be surprised if the activity exploded soon.

If you’re interested, check it out.

    Interesting…is it fair though? Wouldn’t some members just request bookmarks for their sites but not help out anyone else?

    I may join…at least I can always get my money back if I don’t like it.

      Good question – there’s a “karma system” in affect. How it works is that every time someone replies in your thread and says that they bookmarked your site, you click a link near their username to +1 their karma rating.

      Then it’s pretty easy to see which users have a lot of posts but low karma, and you just don’t help them out because they’re obviously jerk-a-sauruses.
