    I myself use Video Marketing, Forum Marketing and Guess Blogging.

    It depends on what kind of traffic do you want and that you know the keywords you want to target.

      Can you give me a little detail about your video marketing?

      Interesting tactic that ... 'Guess Blogging'. Do you guess which blog to post on, do you guess your keywords, or do you guess your titles?

    PS. Keep in mind that even if you write reviews/article about different niche, you can still get a fair amount of traffic if your niche is profitable enough.

    I find media buying works great especially after doing your research with free resources like Alexa, Quantcast, Compete etc. You get laser targeted traffic when done correctly.

    I think we should get these threads stopped. It's bordering on insane at this stage the amount of times this question has been asked. No offense, but if you haven't got the brains to search for the answer to that question yourself, believe me, you have bigger problems than traffic.

      Maybe they're hoping someone will eventually post a legitimate traffic method.

    Why are so many people simply restating the same things that have already been said?

    Why not, if you want to say the same tactic - add a little information about why you feel the need to restate it?

    i.e rather than say "guest commenting" - say a little about what you think is required to do that effectively?

    If you just post the same thing that someone already posted it makes you look like a sig promoter, or newbie trying to get cheap post count increases.

      Andy you read my mind. Post count junkies/onelinerz....

      Makes good for entertainment. Because a lot of us that read in between the lines can tell what kind of marketers they are. It's character assassination if you ask me.

      How can you build rapport with others if you can't respect basic etiquette...

    Most of the methods mentioned here already are also seo strategies. Using seo methods is a sure way to drive traffic especially the off page techniques like social bookmarking, forum marketing and social media marketing.

      Video marketing is a generic term which refers to using videos as part of your marketing mix.

      There are many ways to do this, but a lot of people just starting out tend to use them as ways to get extra traffic.

      One popular activity is to write articles and then make slideshow movies covering the same content as a video.

      If you're selling software or doing reviews then you can do a screencapture video showing you going through the product and reviewing it etc..

      I wrote a book which I also made into a video series, so there are lots of options.

      Some places to share your videos include:


      youtube.com
      ustream.tv
      mogulus.com
      blip.tv
      vids.myspace.com
      ifilm.com
      metacafe.com
      dailymotion.com
      atomfilms.com
      multiply.com
      lulu.tv
      photobucket.com
      expertvillage.com
      funnyordie.com

      viddler.com

    Hey, currently I am using paid traffic and free traffic.

    For free traffic, my advice is don't do everything, as you can see there are many different way to do traffic, like article, video, doc sharing, blog post, blog comment, press release, forum, podcast and so on... One of the problem if you try to do everything might demotivate you and you will felt so boring and tired at the end.

    For me, I just focus on video marketing, article and doc sharing which I like, and for paid traffic I use 7search.

    Traffic is everywhere on the internet - it's not hard to find
    cold traffic.

    Go for networks that place your ads. CPCs, CPMs, etc...
    If you're big enough, go apply for payouts to CPA network
    affiliates...
    PPC...
    Solo ads and emails...
    Blogging...

    There are just tons...

    But the money is not in the amount of traffic YET. Think about
    it only when you have a working sales funnel that converts.

    A few people have mentioned LinkedIn, and I have used the LinkedIn blog plugin to post my blog posts to relevant groups. That drives a lot of traffic for me, and is a good strategy, depending on your niche.
