Document Sharing Sites : Free Traffic Method
Document sharing sites are a little-known tactic for extreme traffic generation, and should not be overlooked in your marketing arsenal. These sites allow you to upload content in the form of PDF or Word documents, and can then be indexed by search engines and start receiving targeted organic traffic.
Many of these sites are PR4 and higher, so the chance to receive traffic from them is very good. Also, Google seems to LOVE the “link juice” from these sites.
Here’s a list of some of the most popular document sharing sites. Just sign up for an account with each one.
Top Document Sharing Sites
What’s great is, you can simply re-purpose the content you create for your video slideshows AND the content you crreate for your quality forum posts – and turn them into PDF documents to share online.
Very little extra effort here to make this work. You can even hire content writers to create articles for you, which you then take and just turn them into PDFs (after adding a link to your squeeze page and/or Youtube video) and then upload them one by one.

How To Use Document Sharing Sites
Here is the process you would follow:
1. Open up a new document in either Microsoft Word or GoogleDocs. Copy the content you compiled for your videos into this new document. Format it properly so it is easy to read, and then proofread it for errors or mistakes.
2. Somewhere in the document, add a hyperlink to a relevant video of yours, and also a link to your list-building squeeze page.
3. Export the document as a PDF.
4. Upload to all the sites listed above.
5. Watch the traffic to begin to happen.
6. Rinse and repeat.
This method will start to generate ongoing, long-term and consistent traffic to the pages that you link to within your document. If you include a link to a Youtube video or your website in each PDF, you’ll get the added SEO benefit of the powerful “link juice” that comes from these high PR sites, which will cause your page or video to rank much higher in the SERPS.
Just repeat this process for ANY kind of content that you create that can be turned into a PDF.
