Welcome to the FFA Facts web
site. If you're thinking about using FFA pages, please read
through our site first. We'll tell you the truth about
whether they are actually worth it.
Surely submitting your
site to 100,000 Free For All pages is going to bring traffic
to your site? The short answer is no, it won't. When was
the last time you looked for an FFA to find a web site?
The simple truth is that
NOBODY finds web sites through FFA sites. Free For All Sites
are simply pages with a long list of links on them, with
usually no other descriptions apart from the titles of the
sites. Even if someone did visit an FFA page with your link
on it, it is very unlikely they would find you amongst all of
the other links there.
We have conducted our own
research and found that our web site received NO TRAFFIC
WHATSOEVER from the thousands of FFA pages we had submitted
People often submit their site
to thousands of FFA sites in the hope that this will increase
their "link popularity" and therefore boost their
search engine ranking.
The truth is though, that not
many of the FFA sites are registered with the major search
engines, so the search engines won't know that you have all
these "links". If the search engines can't see all
these links pointing to your site, then it won't have any
effect on your ranking. If the search engines did find them,
it could even hurt your ranking, as many search engines
penalise you for artificially trying to raise your "link
Our own research has shown
that submitting to Free For All sites does NOT increase your
"link popularity" or search engine ranking in any
way at all. In fact, it could harm your ranking in some
The most common way to submit
your site to an Free For All site is through an automatic
bulk submission service. The
trouble is, as other people around the world submit their
sites to the same lists, your site gets pushed down the list
until you reach the end and are then taken off the list.
Because Free For All sites are
so popular and are so easy to submit to, your site can be
pushed off the list in a matter of days or even hours!
This means you have to constantly resubmit your site to
maintain your listing.
To test this, we submitted our
site through a popular Free For All submitting service. When
we viewed one of the link pages 5 minutes later, there were
already 21 other sites above ours (out of a list of about
40). Within another 15 minutes we were to be pushed off the
FFA sites bring
"spam" email. That's the reason why most of them
have been set up. When you register your site you have to
provide your email address and then the owner of the page
will usually send emails to you trying to sell you something.
Our experience is that most of these sales emails make
ridiculous claims about earning $20,000 a week working from
home and other similar claims.
Although some FFA sites claim
to be "spam free", most aren't, so if you submit
your site to thousands of pages in one hit, you can expect
hundreds and hundreds of emails within days - and they'll
often keep coming unless you unsubscribe to each one.
Occasionally you'll get emails that don't even let you
Increasing links to your site
is really important. If
you make the effort to create quality inbound links to your
site, you'll receive a number of benefits.
First, if they are links from
sites that are properly related to yours, then they will
bring in good traffic that is actually interested in your
site. Say for example you sell outdoor furniture. Having your
link placed on a gardening site or something similar may
bring in traffic that is more likely to be interested in your
Second, quality links that are
related to your product will also increase your search engine
engines are pretty smart, and can work out whether the link
coming into your site is popular, and also whether it is
related to your site. You will get more "link popularity
points" if you have inbound links from sites that are
either popular or related to your product in some way (or
So, if you came to the end of
this site hoping for a quick fix, I'm afraid there isn't one.
The only way to build quality inbound links is to do your
homework, find the right sites, and contact them to swap
links. However, I can assure you that setting up half a dozen
quality inbound links will return far more traffic to your
site than any other Free For All system out there.
Free For All link sites simply
aren't worth it.
