What is your Single Best Traffic Source?

Hi,

I am doing a bit of research for a post I am thinking about.

We all know there are a number of great ways to send traffic to your site,blog,squeeze page etc but I was wondering what is everyone's single best traffic source if they had to choose just one?

For example: At the moment mine would be Triberr. Because I am in several tribes my RSS feed gets lots of exposure for others.

So, what is the best traffic source for you at the moment?

Thanks for your input Warriors!

Regards,
John

    Well, if you're asking about free traffic, I think forums & blog commenting are the most effective.
    But as for paid, solo ads are the best with the best value and cost!

    Besides, You cannot rely on always being top of Google, because algorithms are changing all the time!
    So anybody would better build a list to ensure evergreen business!

      if done correctly PPV. penny clicks and instant traffic. Solo ads are great but more expensive, media buying done correctly is also quick way to get good cheap traffic per click, and if you are looking for free traffic, blogging, press releases, wiki blogs, video.

      I would do a combination of all.

        I noticed on your profile you said you don't offer services but I'd love to know if there are any tips you could offer on what "done correctly PPV. penny clicks and instant traffic" specifically means for us newbies.

        Thanks again for your helpful post!

        Who do you use for PPV? I have read a little on the subject but I have not yet tried it. I have 3 different projects I would like to try it on.

    If I could figure a way to stay at top of Google without spending an arm and a leg...that would be dyn-o-mite!

    My most successful traffic generation has been Twitter.

    But I go about it a different way....I look for posts where I can help others...when I tell them I have a solution to that problem and put my link they almost ALWAYS click on it which in turns gets their other followers to click on it

    Other traffic sources fluctuate, but my list is the only source that's grown steadily over the past 10 years.

      Solo ads or Email marketing is the way to go. Google has too much money and they hire people just to make your life miserable. Facebook and Yahoo do the same, always changing algorithms, always finding ways to terminate your account for any reason. Solo ads or email marketing is definitely the way to go for long term success.

  • Blogging has been a traffic source for me that branches off other sources.

    I get both organic AND social traffic to my blog just by having it optimized as well as sharing it through social syndication.

    I have some automated tools for this, but at the end of the day, I get most of my traffic from content based marketing.

    I don't think you can get much traffic directly from Scribd and other pdf sharing sites. But yes they will help your website from SEO point of view.

    And I agree with many other members here that Yahoo Answering has been one of the best sources for my websites as well.

    Other than this, traditional SEO always help immensely. So always invest your time to build quality backlinks back to your site.

    My single best FREE traffic source right now is forums, really awesome traffic really responsive and pretty fast actually.

    My single best PAID traffic resource right now is FREE WSO's, It used to be solo ads until I understood the "quality" of solo ads compared to other traffic sources.

    However, I'm still buying solo ads here and there

      Hi,

      I use Solos too... they convert really well but obviously can be costly....

      Which PPC and PPV services to you use.

      I mastered Adwords, was consistently getting $0.01 clicks for ages and then Bammm! Account suspension......

    I don't know much about Solo Ads but i don't like to get traffics by paid otherwise we don't know that's are coming targeted traffics or nor, When you optimize blog with pure seo it would be great to generate freaky traffics Maybe there is a different link building methods to build backlinks to your site, Blog commenting on high PR Blogs, Submitting articles to the article directories, RSS Submit directories, social bookmarking and creating web 2.0 sites and link back to your main site or post. Quality is better than Quantity

      Hi Paul,

      Do you track where your conversions come from with Analytcis?

      One of the anomalies I'm seeing on my SundaySEO optin right now is that optins from another SEO guy and WF are way outperforming traffic from my blog (some of whom may admittedly already be on my list).

      Tracking does turn up a lot of counter-intuitive stuff and just generating traffic without monitoring its conversion is a terrible waste of resources.

      As a net worker I use every available source for free traffic. I post classifieds, blog, squidoo, and several social networking sites. All of the above are great examples but in my personal experience, I get most of my traffic from social networking sites. Facebook In particular. I added the Facebook like button to a website of mine and every like gets me a link on their profile and in the news feed and it brings in traffic even days after the like happened. So the more likes I get, the more Facebook traffic I will get.

    Best advise on where to get traffic is Google.

    Be patient when doing your SEO so that you don't get slapped.

    On the other hand, build a list, do social media marketing and use all other white hat methods so that in case you get slapped you still have some traffic.

    Look out for someone called Jeff Johnson or Ana Hoffman. They have some great stuff on traffic.

    As far as free traffic goes, forum marketing is the best in my opinion. It really is free, and you can get good results even when you don't put that much effort on it. Video marketing and social media marketing are good too, though I don't have much experience in those methods yet.

    I suppose it depends on the speed and accuracy of delivery.

    In no particular importance of order:

    1. PPC

    2. Solo Ads

    3. Blog Comments

    4. Videos

    5. Blogging

    6. Articles

    These combined are going to give you some massive momentum to carry through to the next stages of your online business and allowing you to FREE up your time and outsource most of the tasks within your business.

    Hope these help anyone here at the great and wonderful W.F.

    Back in the 90's it was Yahoo, but that is only a trickle now.

      Social media converts extremely well for CPA email and zip-submits. If ur looking to upsell...not so much at all, but I'll take a couple hundred clowns on FB everyday making me a $1+ for email submits. Really, it's about the easiest money you'll ever make after you put in the time to learn how to market on FB and how to get ur ads running cheaply.

      I actually like the last one you mentioned. Never thought about that before.

      With forum marketing though, it has to be done with such finesse so you wouldn't look like a spammer. But yes the results are quite good.

        Many will often look for free traffic . But is it really free . People spend so much of their time trying to get free traffic that in terms of their time its works out really costly . Paid Traffic can really work and work fast . It needs to be tragetted traffic . One way to get free trafficis to post blog comments , intelligent and helpful ones on blogs in your niche .

        Regarding paid traffic unless you know what you doing ' Google Adwords' can prove extremely costly . A better option would be solo ads . Its a great way to build your list and get traffic , but you need to buy from the right people . An excellent Wso on Solo Ads and where and how to find great solo ads can be found by an expert here on the warrior forum Solo Ads

    If you want a targeted traffic, you should start prepare some capital to spend. I suggest you to use solo ads, find a good solo ads in WF. I know some people that can offer you a cheap but good solo ads. While doing it, don't forget to keep track the progress of each successful and failed solo ads. It will help your site go viral for a while when you need it.

    Google ads for those who still has an adwords account not being shut down.

    Google is not as tough with banner ads, and you can get really good and cheap traffic this way.

          I still run a few solos each month but the traffic quality is a bit hit and miss I find. Do you use safe-swaps? Some work way better than others - which concerns me about peoples lists.

          The solo ad business is booming right now and people are making massive lists of freebie hunters that are next to useless and then just selling solos, sure you may get conversions but will they ever interact with you? Let alone even buy....?

    Might sound weird but mine have been:

    Quora.com

    and

    My fiverr gigs as well as some social media buys I've done on fiverr.

    I'm currently nearing 2000 followers in my G+ circle.

    Did about 730 in a 30 day experiment.

    The other 1270 folks....Not a darn thing.

    Fiverr, is perfect for traffic...not necessarily buying gigs, but posting your gigs.

    You can have up to 20 of them so...why not?

    Anyways, my two ways, however I believe strongly in the axiom:

    Its easier to find 100 ways to find one customer than it is to find one way to find 100 customers.

    Its always good to be prolific.

    My best traffic source is social media websites. I am getting a huge amount of traffic from social media websites. After social media I am getting traffic from forum and blog commenting.

    mine is referrals.

    I wrote an incredible e-book that provides more value than anything else out there, and I set up a package in my affiliate tools where my affiliates can generate a copy of the e-book with their affiliate links, and give the e-book away to their followers, email lists, blogs, websites, or wherever else, in my biggest source traffic is people finding that e-book and sharing it with others.

    I realized that starting by adding value to others lives, providing greater value than anyone else, in earning their trust, they would naturally want to buy whatever products I offered, without much skepticism, as long as I treated my customers the way I would want to be treated myself.
