How to increase your website traffic for free

Getting your website up and running is the first step towards getting web presence.
Once you site is up and running you will need to have it crawled by search engines and this can take upto about 8 weeks. There are various search engines that you can submit your url for example:

Some search engines require that you pay, I do not want to pay for the search engines to index my site. So I really want free stuff. The idea is to have one of the search engines to crawl your website and index it.
Once you have been indexed by at least one of the major search engines, then you will 'found' by the other ones easily.
I had to manually add my site to about 6 search engines and the results were good. After one day, I had already been crawled, I also asked web masters with high traffic to add my website link to their site this help me be found easily.
So all it means is that you need to do some tedious digging on google and yahoo to promote your site if you want to do it for free.
Also ask your friends to visit your website and keep it posted on a regular basis to ensure your visitors come back.

Creating your own mp3 ring tones

To create your own Mp3 ring tones all you need is an mp3 encoder program that will allow you to create short compressed clips of your favorite songs. There are many free programs out on the internet if you dont have one on your computer. Search on google for these programs.

Once you have created the ring tones and saved them, just send them to your cell phone and you can now enjoy your ring tones.

To get free ring tones you can search on google for mp3 ringtones or polyphonic ringtones etc and right click on the files and save to your computer.

Using Bluetooth with Cell Phone

Once you have your bluetooth devices installed and working, you should be able to see all your devices when you go to the bluetooth settings. For example on your computer you should be able to see the cell phone and on your cell phone you should be able to see the computers name.

To transfer pics to computer all you need to do is go to the picture and high light it, the cell phone gives an option to send to your bluetooth devices. Select the computers name and hit send. The pics or tones for that matter will be in the bluetooth Exchange folder in your computer.

To send ring tones (or photos) to your phone, download or create your own ringtones, make sure they are compressed enough to fit your phone and then drag and drop them into your bluetooth exchange folder in your computer, you will then see the file transfer.

I have the Motorola V551 model with bluetooth and so far I have been successful using the bluetooth functionality to transfer ringtones from my computer to the cell phone, i have also transferred picture files to and from the phone successfully.
You can find lots of free ringtones online when you search on google, but be carefull some websites do charge even though they may say they are free.
I am yet to find free java games for my phone but I am still searching for them. I just haven't had the time to do so.
If you have any questions or want some sample free ringtones you can email: (AT)
