    There is no singal magic solution to getting more views... but you can from good old hard work.

    - Social networks such as facebook, twitter and Myspace(lol). Create a fan page and provide quirky and fun content people would want to read.

    - Social bookmarking websites, if you can prove popular floods of traffic will head your way. (Difficult to do depending on your niche / topic)

    - Youtube videos relating to your topic, create good content videos that will make people want to view your website. Make lots of videos... lots and lots.

    - Build backlinks to raise your search engine rank for a popular keyword. Search enngines are free traffic.

    - Paid advertisement, if your selling a product maybe invest some money in paid advertisements.

    Begin by reading the marketing and link building posts on the Warrior forum. The choices are numerous.

    Initially, you will need to determine whether you will do it yourself or outsource the marketing and link building tasks. You will either spend money or time (most often both) on your marketing efforts.

    Yep, building traffic methods, which will in turn also build up your backlinks is a great way to increase your views. And building traffic does take some good old fashion work and dedication.

    Some other options in addition to what's been suggested would be to answer questions that relate to your niche within Yahoo! Answers, building trust in a forum community (one that relates to your niche) by communicating and engaging in forum discussions. And then there is content - writing quality articles that relate to your niche and submitting those articles to article directories, hubpages, squidoo, etc. Do something every day and you should start seeing improvement.

    Hope this helps,

    But if you have you have a product make sure you set up an affiliate program and then concentrate on recruiting affiliates.

    Whatever you do only focus on one at a time as this will give you better results.

    Everyone pretty much summed up the ways to start building long term traffic. Satrap definitely gave you pretty much everything you need to know.

    To start getting traffic right away, you can try traffic exchange sites but try to find ones that offer real human views.
    For example, try trafficdial.

    What niche are you in? I would start off by finding a forum in your niche and joining and posting there. You can also submit articles to Ezinearticles. Start a blog and keep posting on it regularly, and have links directed back to your main website page, and do Youtube marketing.

    Before anything else, you need to be be familiar about the three types of internet traffic.

    - traffic that you own (your mailing list)
    - traffic that you control/targeted traffic (traffic that you get from people who searched in a specific keyword that eventually brought them to your site or from a list owner that you did a JV with that checked out your site or from your Facebook fanpage and article directories.)
    - traffic that you don't control (traffic comes from organic search listings, social networks, viral videos)

    There are plenty of ways to get targeted traffic to your site. You can try:

    - SEO (i.e optimize the keywords you use in your content – this can help increase your rankings in search engine sites. The higher the rank, the higher the chance of getting more people visiting your website)

    - Creating quality content (a good article will increase readability and it can also get people visiting your site)

    - Post articles to other sites (There are lots of article submission sites where you’re allowed to place a link that will redirect the reader to your main website. For example, ezinearticles, amazines, hubpages and etc.)

    - Social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter

    - Backlinking (i.e leaving quality comments on other people’s websites, forum posting, posting articles to submission sites.

    - Video marketing (i.e. advertising through youtube)

    - Advertisements (you can go for paid or free advertising)

    All of these involve what we call hard work. You need to invest time, effort and sometimes money so you can get more people to visit your site.

    All the best,
    Nick

    whatever product you are selling ... i can show you a way how you can generate leads which will come to your inbox directly. i can't explain it here because i am writing an e-book on it to promote it as my first WSO here in WF. But I would like to test it with you if you are interested. PM me your email id or add me in your skype and we will chat. Remember I can make leads come to your mailbox only if you permit me to remote access your computer and do the job for you. I am ready to do this for any one who is discussing on this thread. Once the lead comes to your box it is just a matter of time for them to view your website.
