    A lot of my traffic comes from the search engines. Other than that, it's social media generated.

    Hmm, interesting. ''Mixing'' is really good since you don't depend only from one source. :)

    Might want to check out this thread



    It has been fun and all that but it looks like even my free assistance is no longer wanted. I will no longer be replying to PMs or probably posts for that matter...

    Social media has worked wonders, it drives a lot of traffic to the site; be it Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest. 

    But building backlinks to your sites from high PR sites is also important, to build reputation.

    Driving traffic by sharing information others would usually charge for is something worth thinking about.


    I personally share everything I can to help people out- if you care about others, and help people on forums or join Facebook groups to help people, you will naturally gain a following and trust.


    I know it sounds very cliche but helping others is what really produces results in the end- and it's a win-win. I guess this falls hand in hand with quality content; if people find it beneficial, they will like you, share it and drive traffic to it for you.


    Find someone who needs help here and answer them with a very informative post instead of just the short snippets (like this one LOL)


    Good luck!

    Blog commenting, social media, and forum posting are the best ways hands down.

    To increase website traffic on your website, you have to focus on two main components: Search engine Visibility and Links.
    There are some various tactics used to drive user to your website and improve visibility these are:
    1. Make Social Media Strategy: Make connections and take controversial content and share it on social media site
    2. Create Blog and update regular with quality content.
    3. Join specific niche Forums
    4. Create Community
    5. Bring guest bloggers:Find someone who writes well on your topic and ask them if they’d be willing to contribute to your Web site or blog.
    6.  Use Technology: Content is not enough to attract readers. Use video,slide shows, power point presentation and other multimedia to create dynamic content.

    I don't know if this counts because YouTube is owned by Google but outside of SEO my second favorite traffic source is YouTube.


    Here's a few reasons why:

    • It's relatively easy to rank in YouTube (well at least compared to Google) and because most people can't be bothered to make videos you have far less competition for the keywords you are trying to target.
    • It converts in credibly well. I good video whether it be a product review or a walkthrough of some service can convert much better than an article if it's done well.
    • YouTube is growing and every year video consumption is going up as people get faster connections and more devices (iPads, smartphones etc) to watch YouTube videos on.
    • And... the traffic is free!

    Great suggestions, I would like to emphasize though that when driving traffic before anything else, listen to your visitors, and engage in your community. This is so you can create engaging content for your visitors. When you have that content published never forget to share it.

    I view content marketing, social, and even to some extent SEO as back-end traffic strategies. They're in the same category, for me, as email marketing. Very effective and profitable... but that's not how to drive initial influx.


    For that, I heavily rely on media-buying & advertising in general. 


    Because it's something I can control, and scale to any level once a campaign is profitable or at least self-liquidating. This includes display (GDN), FB ads, PPC, direct placements, and so on.


    Sometimes people fail to realize a simple truth: Traffic isn't the problem. You can go out an buy all the traffic you'll ever need - it's literally unlimited.


    So the key is to get your aEPC's up so that you're simply making 2X+ on every dollar you spend.


    That is the biggest "traffic secret", ever. Learn to monetize & optimize, and traffic will be as mundane a detail as registering a domain.


    Most people will read this and then instantly forget it, and go back to scouring the WSO forum, looking for that elusive new "tactic" for driving brute-force traffic, free or cheap.


    They don't realize that their pursuit of "cheap and free" is a complete waste of time, and an endless roller-coaster. Those things are gravy.


    And if you're in a market where you HAVE to rely on SEO or otherwise organic, due to the slim profit margins (average LTV's)... then you're selling the wrong thing. Get out of it.


    (SEO is, IMO, best-suited to lead-gen for local clients, or otherwise NON-affiliate markets.)


    Anyway... that's the "best" way to drive traffic: Get your average visitor value to double your average CPC.


    That's it.

    This idea only works if you have an angle - you know, something unique about your company/service/blog etc.


    But, if you do have an angle, then getting press exposure is THE way to get massive traffic. I can think of a British family who chose to try and only buy British products for a year. Soon after they started their blog they got featured in the local news and then a few days later they got national coverage on the BBC, Sky, Guardian, Telegraph etc. I Tweeted at them that day to ask how much traffic they were getting.Here was their response:




    Bear in mind that it was only 5pm local time and they had already received nearly 50,000 hits. Not to mention some amazing backlinks to their blog.


    The difficulty is in coming up with this angle in the first place. You need to think outside the box, jump on news stories/trends and yes you do require a bit of luck too.

    Apart from the sites that get their traffic from Google, I have a site where I share each post on Facebook through a plugin (WP Syndicator, if I remember well) and it has a pretty active community there. A couple of posts per day is enough to keep people interested.
