        Traffic is the most important part but it is also the most ignored part alos. Internet Marketers involve themselves in a lot of other actiivities that does not involve traffic generation. Most of your traffic techniques are free and can accelerate the traffic to any website. Thanks for your info and hopefully I can implement some of these to my websites

          Traffic is the most important part, but its not ignored. People tend to misunderstand that internet marketing is ONLY about driving traffic to your site and thus comes the spamming activity... Now that is wrong.Makes sense?

    as an SEO person, I would say this is a perfect article... However, I don't think this article will help newbies as it's too much generic. each one of those mini-paragraphs that you wrote, can be detailed to be a large article that is even larger than the whole article that you've written.

    Overall I would say excellent - keep up the good work

    Good post for newbies about the importance of traffic/visitor generation.

    Get those landing pages up and get busy generating traffic to those pages.

    Master 1 tactic to begin with and then master at least 3 or 4 for traffic diversity.

    Too many people do everything except master traffic.

    - Fast selling products are a dime a dozen:

    - Anyone can slap up some type of landing page:

    Master traffic generation and you will earn your freedom as it separates the men from the boys.

    Thanks for the resources. I learned some new information.

    But from my experience, for generating traffic, its best to start off mastering 1 resource, get really good at it and then move on the next one, else my focus is divided between 15 different things-to-do and I see a drop in my productivity and also in my returns.

    When you see big lists like this - be wary.

    OK - full of great ideas, thanks qkz283.......but how much time do you have in a day?

    Try just doing 3 or 4 of these things and you will see your time get eaten up in a flash.

    The key is to find a method that works well.

    Some methods work a whole lot better than others.

    Better to spend your time on the methods that work best. Also, remember;

    You want targeted traffic - not just any crappy traffic.

    It makes a real difference to your results - and results are what you need.

    There is a lot of info in this initial post. I agree that all of the ways are great. The problem is, if true entrepreneurs are like me, they do the crazy thing and try to make them all work at once!

    A strategy that works, is taking on one, maybe two at a time and getting good at them. Really learning what to do, how to do it, and implementing it as you learn.

    Expectations are high for newbies. Many, like me probably have a low budget to start, and can't power buy traffic, or outsource everything all at once.

    It takes time to build traffic on a low budget. You must find the good sources of specialized knowledge and follow them. This is why I created my video series ... to stop the fruitless, expensive, and wasteful searches for others.

    Also, new online businesses must loose the idea that they are going to create a business for free. That isn't going to happen. Businesses costs money, and maintaining and sustaining traffic flow costs money ... in one way or another (direct or indirect).

    So, all the points in the lead post are great, but don't go after them all at once.

      Great post, here is some more:

      Article/Post syndication:

      Use Twitterfeed to connect to your blog. Then, have twitter feed also
      connect to Ping.fm.

      On Ping.fm, sign up for a few social networks. Now, when you update
      your blog, it will push out to ping.fm, and from there it will update your status(your post link) for
      all the social media sites you signed up for. (Your post link will be sent to multiple networks)

      Blog==>>Twitterfeed==>>Ping.fm==>> All social media sites.

      --------------------

      Now, if you want to post actual CONTENT, like full posts on other social media do this:

      Sign up for LiveJournal, Multiply, Vox, and Blogger.
      Get Crosspress plugin and Live+Press plugin.

      Use CrossPress to "post by email" to Multiply, Blogger, and Vox.
      Use Live+Press plugin to syndicate to Livejournal. (Only paid members can "post by email", so here is a free alternative)

      Update: You could also use Posterous to update Blogger, Livejournal, and Xanga. This way you don't even have to use the Livejournal plugin (Live+Press)

      Walaa! You have now spread your content further onto the net. More chances of people coming back to your main site! =)

    I've heard a funny traffic suggestion... like bring a banner/board with your URL and get behind TV reporters on scene...

    But one that worked for me, create a useful resource/tool and give it away for free.

    Let me give you a few examples... I have my MiniSiteGallery.com, which is a free mini-site template gallery. Designers can submit designs and others can download and use them for free. They'd have to register to download though. But I am getting new members signing up everyday. Though getting designs is much harder... I approach designers individually and request for a design and interview.

    Another example is where I created a simple Countdown script with PHP-Javascript. I post it at HotScripts.com and it's been sending steady traffic, from HotScripts.com and from organic searches. Look it up, it's hosted at MiniSiteGallery.com too...

    My simple traffic idea -- awesome useful resources/tools for free...

    Articles are so easy to do and use. They can be posted all over the place. Hire somebody to write them for you if you can't do it. I write just a few per week, maybe 5-10 of em' and easily do a few hundred bucks a week just doing that. No trouble at all, then if you do some web 2.0 stuff, like socialmarker.com on your articles, and submit the articles with article marketer or submityourarticle... add 1 post or so every now and then to a blog and have some kind of list building you are pretty much set with a plan of action

    This is an excellant bullet point reference overview on how it's done. Could also be used as the basis for a table of contents... in fact it's not too far off from the TOC that I have right now for a book I'll publish later this year...

    Newbies - just take each paragraph, and search the keywords and phrases in the WarriorForums for tons and tons of great information that is more in depth on each paragraph.

    Great job OP!

    I have a question. If you have a backlink with anchour text as (1) "XXXXproductreviews.com"

    Is that the same as having anchour text (2) "XXXX reviews" since the first link has the two key words present.

    Or is link 1 not as good as link 2

      You want your page to be ranked high for "XXXX reviews" in the search engines so definitely go with 2.

            The list given by the OP is excellent. A great reference point for IMers of all levels.

            The only addition I would make to the discussion is to point out that whilst all traffic is good, targeted traffic is essential. Without targeted traffic, sales conversion rates will be poor.

            Sensible advice has been given by other contributors about concentrating on one traffic methodology at a time. I agree with this, but would also recommend that you only select traffic sources that are capabale of delivering targeted traffic to your website.

      This is an impressive list of traffic building activities. I imagine that the beginners looking at this would be very intimated at all the work it takes to drive traffic.

      I would suggest to anyone starting out, that these activities be broken down into bite size chunks that can be easily managed over time. Develop a daily routine of setting up time slots in your daily calendar to work on each piece for a given amount of time. None of this can be accomplished overnight.

      It requires a lot of self discipline to effectively produce results.

    Traffic is great and can be the big compensator. By that I mean, even if you have a crappy conversion rate if you get enough traffic you can still be effective.

    However...

    Don't fall into this concept that everything is about traffic. You can make significant full time income off of just a couple hundred users a day to your site if you have the right sales funnel, rapport with your users and appropriate backend systems and follow up.

    Traffic is good, but it is not the ONLY thing you should be worried about. Personally my recommendation is once you're getting some sales, shift your focus away from worrying so much about traffic and more towards your sales funnel, auto responder, backend systems, etc... Efficiency there can help you increase your earnings and allow you to inject more into your traffic building.

    Don't worry about those things, however, until you're getting some sales. You need enough traffic to first be making a little money before you start worrying about conversions and backend. Otherwise you're just wasting your time.

    No offense, but this about the worst advice you could give to any web site owner.

    In this very forum we have seen numerous examples of people who did this and their business got busted when the specific method they relied on stopped working without prior warning.

    Very well stated for newbies and even intermediates. Sticking to one general traffic method is the key to receiving a lot of traffic but I believe that you should have more than one traffic source available to you if you own a large business. I still agree that one general and main traffic method should be used, but having more than one traffic method can be very profitable too.

      agreed.

      The thing that you want to do is go to where your most likely prospect is hanging out.

      We have done well by doing media buys on high traffic forums and blogs. Even for affiliate programs it works.

      and again, test, test, test....what works for joe bloggs, might not nessesary work for you and your business to get sales. But Do not wait for the traffic to go to u. Make sure you infact go to it first!!! The rest is history.

    This is good info but I also believe that to create a truly sustaining business you cannot rely on one traffic method. Think of all the people who relied on organic search traffic and put $$$ into SEO just to have their rankings flushed down the drain by the Google updates.

    To focus on one traffic system is smart because for a newbie you can avoid information overload but I would suggest to focus on 2 or even 3. I'm not saying to go out and multi-task all day on 3 different methods and achieve nothing. Focus on one method for as long as it takes to generate some decent traffic then move on to another method. Once you complete the second go back to optimize and tweak your first method. You wouldn't want to gamble your whole internet business on only one method of traffic (unless it's paid traffic)
