    if you want free traffic then it will take a bit more time and patients and a number of different ways you can do it

    one thing you should be trying to do as much as you can is set up auto pilot traffic streams rather than only get traffic when you work on something

    a great way to do this is to create link bait and then distribute it across multiple channels

    if you want to send lots of targeted traffic to your squeeze page fast then paid traffic is the only way to go. Either try some solo ads, ppc or some banner ads. These will get you some fast traffic but you had better make sure you have a good funnel in place before you do so.

      Focus on one to two methods until you are able to generate traffic on demand. If you try to do everything you will be biting off more then you may be able to chew all at once. Get good at one method first.

        The most quality traffic comes from guest-blogging and SERPS from my own experience

        Make sure you motivate your subscribers to sign up with their primary email rather than just giving you bogus/secondary email just for sake of getting the freebie, this way you open rate will be much higher.

      Sort of rehashing from some of the above posts but the 3 i like and work very well are:

      facebook marketing- post a quick ad on similar "make money online" pages

      youtube- make a kick ass video on something you can do well and optimize it with very specific title, description and tags..
      an example would be maybe, a video about getting accepted into cpa networks,or a quick and easy seo method.

      forums- establish yourself on different forums and you will be surprised at the amount of opt-ins you will receive.

      these are the 3 i use when money is low.

    Best way to get free traffic in my opinion is to upload YouTube videos and stuff the description with keywords you are focused on

    Here are a few examples that may help you out!
    1) Social Media: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google +
    2) Bookmarking Sites: Stumbler, Reddit, Digg
    3) Contacts: Share in your email, Forums, Email signature
    4) Other Blogs: Comment on other blogs, Submit articles to other blogs
    5) SEO: find good keywords will help bring free traffic from Google to your website

    Another major and relatively fast way is create to create YouTube videos promoting your site. Then add a link to your site. One interesting Fact about YouTube is it gets around 4 billion views daily!

    It's just like normal traffic generation. The only difference is, your end goal isn't to get the page on Google. All you have to do is generate quality backlinks. Here are a few ideas.

    - Make a few videos on YouTube about your topic and tell them to click your link in the description.
    - Include a few hyperlinks to your squeeze page from your blog.
    - Write a few blog comments on blogs in a similar niche using your squeeze page as your website URL.

    I believe it's best if you can get traffic to your blog and then direct them from there onto your squeeze page. Difficult, but much more lucrative if you can pull it off, simply because of your blog's preselling abilities.

    The best way is through JV partners. You can customize the squeeze page that's related to the list owner. It has $0 cost, no risk from your side, and it grows your subscribers tremendously overnight! :-)

    PPC is another way, but it can be used for only testing, not driving massive loads of traffic, since 80% of the money on PPC is usually wasted, even if you have a good conversion page. It depends on the quality of the ad and the targeted traffic that's going through this squeeze page.

      To get traffic you have to forget Google!

      It may be a Bold statement but if you see other threads you will realize that how much peoples are getting punished by Google. So, Don't go after Google try anything different.

    Giving away free content - via ebooks, whitepapers, Slidehare, etc. - works well, especially for lead generation or email capture, because visitors arrive at your site already viewing you as a trusted source.

    Forum marketing works great too - and don't forget the niche social networking sites related to your site niche. Getting traffic these days means being as creative as possible.

    Google alerts + Yahoo answers.

    That's exactly how I drive 100% of my traffic in one specific affiliate niche.

    I answer the questions, relate to them, and recommend an article to their solution.

    This can be done for YOUR niche as well

    A great way to get free traffic in any niche is do the following:

    Google "niche + forum"

    Identify the 3 most active forums.

    Then post answers to peoples questions, post useful and interesting content, and have a link to your opt in page in your signature.

      If you have to focus on free traffic, then make the most out of each piece of content that you create. So if you write an article, in addition to syndicating it, then you can convert it into different formats, such as:

      1. Press releases
      2. PDF - submit to sites like scribd.com
      3. PowerPoint slides - submit to sites like slideshare.net
      4. Videos - add audio to your PowerPoint presentations
      5. Podcasts - use the audio from your videos

      This will allow you to take each article and get more traffic from several sources instead of just one.
