Hi Guys....

I wanted to share some of the top ways I get traffic to my sites:
  1. Solo Ads: It's quick & effective. Although it can be pricy if your offers don't convert.
  2. PPC: This is one of the old standards for paid traffic. Which do you like better Google's AdWords or Microsoft's AdCenter?
  3. Article Marketing: Some people might claim that article marketing is dead, however I sill drive tons of traffic with it... best of all it's free!!
  4. Forum Marketing: This is a great way to build a relationship with your potential customers!
  5. Ad Swaps: Personally I'm not a huge fan of this. But I know many people who use it & love it.
  6. Social Media: Let's face it... tweeting is fun! So is driving free traffic to your site!

That's all for now... Does anyone have others they wish to add?

Thanks!

Tim

      That's pretty good, but I am surprised Social Media isn't high on your list. I would generally say that if people know how to take advantage of Social Media on their blogs etc you can generate puddles of traffic from things as simple as facebook and twitter.

      I was just thinking of doing a solo ad, so thanks for the link.

      Another coincidence, to me, article marketing is dead - becase I hate doing it! I was wondering if it's as popular today as it was a few years ago. Glad it still works for those who can be bothered.

        If you've got the right products or content then high profile, heavy traffic blogs are all you need, and there are plenty of them about. I can get anything from 2-10 million views a month, resulting in hundreds of thousands of hits returned from my website links and thousands of sales.

        The only other sources I would even consider beneficial in terms of great traffic are Facebook and YouTube. Forum signature links also bring in a small amount.

    Content creation aka blogging is def my top way of getting traffic . You just need a system and know what type of content to create. I just focus on 2 main types of posts... Viral and long tail posts.

    Viral posts can give you short bursts of massive traffic. In my experience, there are 2 ways to write a viral post.

    The first one are top 10 lists, people love lists! Create a list in your niche (eg. top 10 ways to stop smoking…), add a nice picture and publish it! Simple as that!

    The second one are memes… yep, those images with funny sayings or catch phrases on them, they work beautifully, just find some quotes on your niche topic, find an image and combine the two (you can use GIMP for this).

    The most important thing to do after you’ve written any viral post is to publish it on social networks, the most important one being stumbleupon <= can bring you a lot of traffic mere hours after you publish the post!

    Long tail posts are handy for some consistent traffic... it's not a lot but as you create more content, you get more traffic!

    People are skeptic before they even try to increase their page rank, they are too lazy to build back-link and .edu. The best traffic magnet is by standing on top of Google page rank. At least in 3 or 2 Page rank is already good enough.

    PPC as its fast and get your instant results. If you can test and tweak and have the patience and heart to do it. It's a very good way to make quick money.

    Youtube is the another one I love.

    Hey,
    I know PPC traffic is a very good form of traffic. However, because I am a novice IM'er I have lost a lot of money in the past doing PPC. I have recently found a resource that makes getting PPC traffic very easy and it is very good traffic... although they are not cheap. I guess you get what you pay for. I best not put the link here but if you search for cpcbroker in google you will find it. They basiclly do the whole campaign for you and send the traffic to your website. Like I say... I am new to IM and have always been scared of doing PPC but cpcbroker really helps

      Yes, very much so; use the search feature, go to "advanced" option and do a keyword search of "article marketing" and "article syndication" on the main discussion forum and you'll find enough threads to keep you busy for weeks.

      Bear in mind that submitting articles to article directories is a very small part of what article marketing is (probably like 1 or 2%, no, not kidding either). Think of putting your content into different formats such as podcasts, PDF documents, videos, etc. and not just the written word. Also think of different platforms you can use. Think of Kindle, Nook, using Createspace, etc.

      You are only limited by your imagination.
