    I like Pinterest, too.

    My preferred way: viral marketing; video and social marketing coming in second place.

    Free traffic? I like forum marketing. It takes time and your results will go slower.

    If you want FAST results, go with PAID ads.

    I actually get a lot of free traffic from mobile apps. Now if each app was better targeted I would probably see some results. But that wasn't my initial goal.

    Search engines for me targeting the keywords related to my niche but there are so many ways I can think of which doesn't need much time nor work.

    I have some questions for you although I know that pinterest traffic is good. How can you make sure the continues targeted traffic? I assume you will do it continuously too and that's too much work?

      I think Solo Ads if done with the right expectations can be very beneficial (and have for me at least !)

        There are a lot of choices to get free traffic and what works best for another may or may not work for you. I suspect what counts even more than traffic is conversions. if you get a ton of free but none of it converts, all you are doing is using up your hosting bandwidth.

        A good way to figure out what traffic is bringing you the results you want in terms of conversins, whether that is optins or sales or or CPA clicks or something else is to start with 5 free traffic methods. Concentrate on each of those one day a week. Set up 5 landing pages on your site, each targeting visitors from one of those sites You can offer the same thing on each landing page, but you have to word your copy differently on each landing page.

        Even if it is only your headline:

        Thank you for dropping by from Facebook. Download my new "Success By The Numbers" for smart Facebook users quickstart guide right here.

        Change out the italicized portions for each free traffic source and see which works the best for you. You can put them on one list or set up 5 separate lists for each traffic source.

        Honestly, you should word your landing page a bit differently, that wording is simply for an example.

      What type of niches work with craiglist? Is it limited to mmo, and job hiring as earlier or does it even work for new niches?

        Sorry to chip in advice when it was addressed to someone else.

        It works for many niches. The subject is a large one, so I advise research. If you look at the categories on CL, some instant niches will spring to mind. CL used to be pure gold in terms of free traffic (quite literally, it was like finding a goldmine), but these days they've had to tighten down and you'll encounter much competition. And I don't mean garden variety competition: we're talking high-end, top of the food chain competition.

    Hi allseowork,

    these are my favorites when it comes to traffic generation:

    1. Create an Infographic in your niche
    2. Write 4-5 Press Releases for your niche
    3. Go to some forums in your niche
    4. Do some posts about your infographic (NO SPAMMING)
    5. See the traffic come in....


    Have a nice day

    Pinterest is good but I'm still a big believer in search engine traffic. If your pages are highly targeted for the right keywords and all your other SEO factors are lined up and in order, you should be getting a fair amount of traffic from search engines.

    Youtube is still my best source of free targeted traffic, most persons looking for a solution would rather watch a video than to read pages. Better yet if your youtube videos is highly optimized it will
    get on Google's first page giving you even more ton loads of traffic.
    I do not even want to hear the name craigslist again, every ad i post get flagged, it is best used to advertise a physical business, where you share your location and telephone number etc.
    Those are the ads that are most successful on there.

    The best "free" traffic is creating a good website with good content.

    It gives a boast to my SEO

    Good SEO gives me around 100K free visitors amonth.
    Social media gives me around 5K free visitors a month.
    Free backlinks from related forums(I not pay for back links) gives me 20K free visitors a month.

    Just having a good website that people like, give me in total of 450K free visitors a month.

      One of the strategies that might work for your site is to create blog posts featuring useful business/marketing related infographics and then pin those images on Pinterest, leading back to the blog page where they were found on your site. This should result in a lot of extra foot traffic. Be sure to include a good description on what the original blog post was about.

    I would suggest for you to stick to Forum Marketing seeing as it's often very targeted. Then if you can ever make any sales from that, I'd suggest considering paid traffic, because you can solely rely on your business to run just on free traffic. Even if you did, you won't be able to scale.

    For FREE methods, article marketing used to be the best for me in respect to conversions. However, nowadays Google and other search engines seem to be too picky because of 'Over' competition.

    I like forum marketing.

    It does take some time but and you must offer value but it does work for me!

    Instagram for me. I get a minimum of 10 leads a day not posting a thing. Let the content speak and engage with others instead of spamming and using salesy posts. They will click the description link out of pure curiosity if you set your profile up correctly.

    YouTube and forum participation works pretty well for me. Another free option that can get you a TON of targeted visitors is guest blogging; the catch is that you need to create content good enough to be featured on a popular blog. If in doubt, you can just outsource the content writing but then you have to pay for it. Either way, no such thing as truly free traffic.

    I am currently exploriing other avenues but what worked really well for me in the past is creating high quality content and then posting it in forums in your niche.

    But quality content is a winning formula. Once you build up your blog to a pr3 or pr4 and you have a ton of aswesome content ranking on organic search your golden. It takesa long time to build it up and a lot of work but it always gets results.

      I spend alot of time on social media sites in one way or another.
      I've tracked the traffic that came through the major social platforms that I am active on (Facebook and Twitter mainly, Pinterest I'm just getting into).

      The results of my testing have shown that this traffic is highly targeted and responsive, so I feel I get more revenue in return for my time.

    One of the amazing ways to get traffic to your website is by joining the related groups on the social networking websites and posting regular updates on them. For instance, if you are selling women apparel online, you can join groups about fashion and style and post your content updates there. This is a great way of getting targeted traffic to your website.

    My best free traffic source is social media (Facbeook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Tumblr & Reddit), you need to submit quality and interesting content that people are likely to share, the more shares you get, the more traffic you will have.

    My favorite free traffic source would have to be YouTube:
    1. YouTube is HUGE so lots of traffic potential there.

    2. It doesn't take long to create a good, informative video to draw in your target market.

    3. It's easy to rank YouTube videos on the first page of Google, if you're more into the SEO aspect of it.

    4. It's pretty passive and ongoing; you can get traffic from videos you created months or even years ago.

    Cheers,
    Daniel
