Hi everyone!

Traffic, Traffic, Traffic! How do we get it? There are lots of possible ways to get traffic. All you need is to look at this list for your reference and check if you have done any of this yet.

Free methods:
Submission to SE's and directories
Article marketing
Email campaign
Forums, blogs and board postings
Social Bookmarking
Etc. etc.

Premium ways: (Should require a budget)
Pay-Per-Click (PPC)
Targetted Link backs
Professional SEO services
Ad spaces
Offline campaigns
Etc. etc.

Random and unique traffic is good to any site but getting targetted traffic is what makes the difference. This kind of traffic yields the highest conversion which would determine your site's success. Given a budget, I would always opt for PPC. PPC is a very effective way of getting targetted traffic given the proper treatment. Identify your niche and select the market you want to cater to and start from there. Research also on the keywords your desired market would most likely be looking for. IMO, one should be more focused on getting targetted traffic than just page views. Buying targetted link backs are also effective at getting targetted traffic. It really all boils down to what your site offers to your traffic ;)

Another great way of targetting your desired audience is through forum posting on similar niche with your link on your signature. What I like about this forum posting is that it is totally free.

My question is : What methods do you use to draw traffic to your site? Random and targetted alike.

Hoping to hear from you!

Hi there, given a budget i would also go for ppc. Heaps of people are searching on google every single day and minute, therefore it will help you build your business at a much quicker rate for the little effort it takes to create your campaign

With articles and all you have to write so many b4 you can get traffic , then comment on other articles etc

Well your list is good, even squidoo is a good way to generate traffic, but its also similar to article writing.

For me, SEO is always the best :)

The rule of SEO is create good content and support it with relevant backlinks.

For quick traffic, you can go to yahoo answers and leave links pointing to where you want the traffic to.

Blog commenting on blogs that have the plugin "comment luv" are great because after your comment it leave a link to your last blog post.

Twitter is also great for traffic too.

Search engine optimized pages are the way to go if you want relevant traffic - and supplement that with good relevant backlinks.

ive always done seo on my websites but then use adwords ppc that way the seo improves your quality rating on adwords so the ppc is cheaper
saved me a lot of money in the long run.

I think it really depends on your situation.

Keyword-heavy content is a great way to develop organic search engine optimized traffic - and the best part about it is that it's free...but this takes time, and lots of writing.

If you have the budget to implement professional SEO services, this will do wonders to your rankings.

Personally, I believe a hybrid of keyword-rich content and seo specialist work is key to building traffic.

When I was new I used blog commenting and posting quotes on sites with my URL. They gave me great results. Now I'm looking for more ways and I found it in your post. Thanks...

Nice thread. For online success its always traffic, traffic and traffic it is. I think you should have two goals set.

1. Short Term
2. Long Term

For Short term traffic i would probably would go with yahoo answers, video marketing (Tubemogul), forum posting and classified posting. But then this depends on your niche i should say.

While delivering these goals at the same time i involve with my long term gaol, SEO.

Follow this way and you should always have some monetization with your online business

Active participation in social media and networking websites plays an vital role for grabbing attention of your online business and hence traffic but i prefer to work hard on SEO (Onpage-Offpage) for better long lasting results.
Peoples have started spamming Social media sites :mad:

I would have to say link trading, it's easy and you can get a lot of traffic that way. Some people think it is dead, but I still do it all the time and get good traffic.

Yeah, Link trading can be a good option for good option for improving traffic but you have to be very careful when you trade links, make sure you don't link to irrelevant website nor you try to get link from them.
Try to get links and make them appear as if they are natural backlinks !
