      Great list.

      But keep in mind, it isn't always about the quantity of traffic but the quality.

      People often forget there is a whole world of offline advertising available.

      You could also:

      Run an cheap classified ad or small display ad in Thrifty Nickel or Pennysaver newspaper
      Run two-step ad in magazines for leads
      Mail postcards to a good buyer list of names from a list broker

      Later,

    Interesting. I came across the tip: "Social bookmark your pages." and I just had to share something extra. Instead of social bookmarking our pages, what we can do is to make it easier for our readers to bookmark our pages.

    If you're a wordpress owner, there are several plugins that would add bookmarking buttons at the end of our posts.

    Great info!

      Nice list, but "million's of unique visitors"?

      That will take quite a bit of time I think, than with a more automated backlink building system.

      The best way is with free scripts, products, graphics, or tools that people can download, install, use, then pass around.

      These scripts or other products will all have links back to your site, and by giving away useful stuff will lead to thousands of links back to your site with very little work on your part.

      These other methods, while good...

      Depend on your own ability to generate interest in what your have to say or write, many do not have this ability.

      By the way, any website with "million's" of unique visitors, is worth a bundle.

      Targeted or not...

        Hey Eric. Building backlinks and getting traffic
        are two completely different things. Building
        backlinks is about working your way up the search
        engines for your targeted keyword. This post is
        about ways to get traffic not build backlinks.

        Originally Posted by Eric Lorence View Post

        If your talking about the backlink method of
        submitting your pad file so it gets picked up
        by directories then this won't get you any
        targeted traffic and the backlinks it produces
        will be very low quality.

        This method may give you a boost in the search
        engines which could result in some search engine
        traffic but the backlinks it produces are of low
        quality. Yes it's quick and easy to do but when
        it comes to building backlinks I'd rather have less
        good quality links than thousands of spammy links
        from software directories. This is just my opinion
        from what I have found from implimenting this method.
        Btw did you learn this method from 30 minute backlinks?

        You can always choose a niche you are interested
        in. Or you can outsource work which a lot of people
        do. Plus it is not really necessary to have interest in
        every niche you are in. Internet marketing can be
        boring a lot of the time, if someone doesn't have the
        ability to stay focused then they aren't going to get
        very far in this game.

        100% Correct but my traffic doesn't all go to one site.

          I'm talking about distributing products from and building links back to your own site, not a software directory. The other method of uploading PAD files to directories does also work, to a limited extent.

          You need backlinks to build traffic long term. There is no web site with millions of natural unique visits per year without them- and a lot of them.

          The idea of "spammy links"...

          Any time you "mass submit" anything- such as posts, articles. podcasts, pad files, or whatever, you run the risk of spammy links.

          To do this by hand will be a full time job- 40 hour weeks, and maybe... just maybe most will manage a few hundred visits per week.

          No I didn't read that book you mentioned, never heard of it.

          And how old are your busiest sites?

          Pretty old and well established I would bet.

          Best!

            Yes you are totally correct but again this
            thread and the post I made has nothing to
            do with getting backlinks.

            Originally Posted by Eric Lorence View Post

            When it comes to backlinks it's about quality
            not quantity. The method of mass submitting
            may give you a quick boost but your rankings
            will go away if you can't maintain them.

            Instead you should go for quality links then you
            will sustain your rankings for longer periods of
            time as I have found from having many hundreds
            of first page rankings for many medium to high
            competition keywords. To get that success I had
            to test everything to see what works and what
            doesn't. So when it comes to getting backlinks
            and traffic I know what works.

            Not if you do it the right way.. But it sounds
            like your saying is that you should get as many
            thousands of links as you can as quickly as you
            can so you don't have to do any work in the
            future? And you expect to get longterm
            sustainable rankings doing this?

            Again this post was about getting traffic
            not backlinks. Maybe I'll do a post in the future
            about the best ways to get high quality
            backlinks if I get the time and then we can
            argue about who's methods are best then.

            But until then. Peace.

            Will

Terry H makes a good point though, you want to make sure that you are receiving quality visitors to your webpage at the same time. Quantity is great, so its probably a good idea to focus and funnel it to a targeted audience. Nice post!

    A nice checklist in there Will... I would like to add Docstoc and Scribd

    They get indexed super fast by Google, great for picking up some free traffic for niche keywords.

    One word of note though: doesn't abuse the system buy uploading tons of crap to these sites or Google may rethink their policies on these sites in the same way they slapped Squidoo.

    Add good-quality, useful information and you will be rewarded.
