I am looking for a small list of good sources for free referral traffic. The type of websites that I wont have to try and rank but will get traffic. For example, my perfect idea of referral traffic is yahoo answers. Another one is instructables. Wikipedia and wikihow have also been fairly good. I understand that all of these have SEO benefit. However, I am just exploring referral traffic at the moment.
So I would like to add to this list. My website is a "how to" blog so QnA sites are perfect.

Targeted Facebook groups related to your niche.
If you niche was about weight loss, join groups and add value, not spam links
Twitter #hashtags that are related to your niche
If you niche was about weight loss, post updates and add the required hash tag. (needs research)
Any suggestions on social bookmarking traffic? Digg, Reddit, Delicious, Stumbleupon, etc
Any suggestions on other answer type of websites? (like Yahoo Answers)
Any suggestions on other social networks like myspace, tagged, bebo, etc? (just dabbling in that)
P.S: I want to ignore mainstream social websites like Google plus, twitter, facebook, etc as I have a separate plan for those. However, comments are welcome, especially on linkedin.
