I’ve just come across a useful traffic strategy called “Parasite Hosting”. It’s actually something I’ve been doing for a while, but that term describes it well. The idea is you can piggyback the traffic from major sites and direct it to your own.
There are many, many sites you can be a parasite on. In fact, any site that will host your pages. Here’s some popular ones:
…and hundreds more!
You may already have noticed how it works. Each of those sites have been ranked highly by Google, Alexa etc and can help you in a number of ways:
1. Linking to your own site from them to increase your pagerank. These backlinks are from authority sites.
2. Direct traffic from the users and fans of the services themselves.
3. The ability to create strong keyword-based pages on them, to help with organic SEO.
So if you create a hubpage, squidoo lense, Blogger blog, and WordPress blog on your choosen subject, you can put content there and also link back to your own site.
For example, if your site has movie reviews, you can create sattelite sites on as many parasite hosts as you can find. Each of these will be a movie-related theme, and each of them will link to each other, and to your own site.
If done correctly Google won’t mind. Just as long as you provide real content for the end user.
I’ve just bought the rights to a couple of products than can help you find and utilise these sites for driving traffic to your own. The first is “Taking Advantage Of Parasite Hosting” which is a full guide to this strategy, along with 13 Videos illustrating and explaining the concept. This also contains details of the best hosts to use, what content to put on them, and how to utilise the traffic-building potential to it’s utmost.
The second is “Profiting After The Sale” – a great guide to increasing the income you can generate from each main sale you make.
I’ve also thrown in a free copy of the 5-Minute Traffic Tip, since it really is a pretty cool technique in it’s own right
All three for only $7 — and that’s with full Master Resale Rights!
You don’t need this guide. This post outlines the tactic, so you can you try it yourself. But having everything in front of you in a PDF and Video form will certainly help you understand how powerful this underrated technique is.
