        YES! Finally, the secret has been revealed! I've been holding it in for over a year.. but you've officially spilled the beans. I feel a lot better

        It is truly the only way that has consistently worked for me.

      This is pretty much what I do as well and makes up about 90% of my traffic.

      Simple things work - there is no secret

      That's pretty much all you have to do. People seem to overthink the whole process of getting traffic.

    SEO works best (but takes time to achieve).
    Twitter and forum posts are second in my opinion.

    I am just getting into this myself and exploring the best and simplest options. I have found blog commenting, article marketing and forum amrketing the best and the simplest way to go especially if you are a noob.

    Check out angelas backlinks too.

    Personally, like to use a combination PPC, SEO, and article marketing. With pay per click you get immediate targeted traffic to your site and it helps you to build a list fast.

    With article marketing, if done correctly, you'll get top 10 SE rankings under your most profitable keywords. And of course, you'll get multiple one way links to your site which will help with Search Engine Rankings.

    Every single webmaster needs traffic and nobody is going to tell you how they generate traffic unless this method is either mainstream or something they no longer do themselves. So don't expect to hear anything new.

    I'm 95% organic search at this point, the rest is forum posting with links in signature. I do articles, but don't get any traffic from them quite yet. If I could move up in the SERPS, I would just go 100% organic search traffic, that traffic seems to be the best converting.

    No. Article marketing is driving traffic to your site by writing articles that include links back to your site and submitting them to article directories.

    What are the sources you all are using to get more traffic to your sites? Share it

    What is your product or service...?

    Try article marketing and maybe test out PPC on Yahoo to see
    if you can generate any profit and then scale up from there

      The key isn't to get traffic. Almost anyone can get a little traffic. The key is to RETAIN the traffic you do get (build your list!)

      If what you're already doing is generating at least SOME traffic, you're good.

      Retain that traffic and your exposure is going to continue to grow day after day.

      Don't retain it and you'll be fighting an uphill battle!

    I'm using SeNuke to get my pages at the top of Google. It's very poweful but it's not cheap, it costs $127 per month.

    It's not a magic solution though. You have to write a lot of content to get any benefit from it.
