    Regularly blog commenting and forum posting helps a lot. Matt Woodard built a top 100 blog by only blog commenting and forum posting. Be sure to leave a link back to your blog/website though.

      I think this question needs to be answered. for that will help get the right result. for example, there are some niches that works best using yahoo answer. And there are some other niches that works best for facebook ads. So it depends on what you are promoting. Study your niche and find out the best marketing media to use.

      But you can try any of the suggestions given to you above. it can still work for you.

    Youtube marketing is always a top suggestion. Learn some of the basic techniques and you'll start getting traffic from Youtube. If you're serious about it, you can even create a little following from videos alone.

    @ Devilfish: A forum in your niche, for example, or one that is not related to your niche but where they do talk about your niche from time to time.. To make things easier on yourself - before you make a site, pick a niche where this part is easy to do..

      I like YouTube.

      That was the best source for me outside of Google organic results.

      One of my videos eventually got over 400,000 views. That's trickled off now as the niche that video was in has been revamped and the google algo tweaked so that the video doesn't get the views it used to.

    Forum marketing, video marketing, blog commenting, guest posting and classified ads seem to work well now for generating free traffic. Bing PPC gives good results if you are ready to spend money and find profitable campaigns.

    The best way to drive traffic to your website is Social Media and Search Engine Marketing. Creating your profile on various Social Media (FB, twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Stumbleupon)will help you gain presence online. If you are willing to spend some money online, you should go for search engine marketing. Get SEO done for your website or run few ad campaigns. This will help you gain visitors for sure.

    Facebook ads is still the best way to get targeted traffic in ANY niche.... you can access virtually anyone in your niche on Facebook so that's what I would suggest.

    In terms of free traffic, YouTube is your best bet in my opinion

    The different "free" traffic sources work well, but only for the right products. I get great conversions from Yahoo Answers and extremely poor conversions from YouTube. If I have to take a wild guess, YouTube would be much better for gaming sites and anything gaming related, gadgets, music, etc.

    If you want to get targeted audience go for Search Engine optimization or Google adwords PPC campaign. And if you are looking for free top quality social referral, I will recommend you to increase your social media effort in Pinterest.

    Trust me, it is a source of high quality targeted audience, mainly female audience. You'll get lots of traffic and it will increase your conversion.

        You said you wanted "good traffic" but you didn't say if you just wanted to focus on "free" or if you have a budget for paid traffic.

        I'll assume you mean "free" good traffic.

        In that case, youtube is by far the best free traffic you can get imho.

        But the key to youtube is:

        1) Doing a regular (weekly is best) "tips" type video so user "subscribe" to your channel

        2) Cross referencing your other videos (that are relevant to the one you are posting) in your description and in the video itself every time you post.

        Other people mentioned forum posting - that is a great free traffic source - and high quality to but you usually don't get a lot of traffic from it. But you must do it.

        I still like youtube the best - great quality and free.

    Like has already been mentioned relevant posts in forums can lead to great potential in any business.

    Free traffic methods do work but take time.

    Make use of social media sites but learn how to do this well and these sites can drive a lot of traffic. Use multiple sites and not just Facebook.

    Be consistent in your traffic strategy by working at your traffic methods everyday

    Good luck!

      Hello, i must say a lot of ways are there to get traffic its paid and unpaid
      If you want paid traffic than lot of micro sites are there you can purchase traffic related gig with very low price that to latest panda and penguins safe.
      i don't recommend to buy this gig today
      the main and long lasting and potential traffic you will get from forum,blog posting, youtube commenting,myspace commenting and lot of ways are there.

      and the most important thing i must say use fresh and unique content for your website and change it frequently to get traffic and potential buyers.

      and the last but not in list is keep patience and do your work contentiously so that you will get sucess.

      Thanks

    Here's a nice free way to pick up additional, quality site traffic.

    Find your most popular keywords
    Add google alerts for them
    Open the alert sites and post comments relevant to the discussion with a link back to your site

    That may sound simple, but it's incredibly effective and won't cost you anything.

    I assume you are referring to targeted traffic, as opposed to blind/un-targeted traffic. Really, the best method is with paid traffic. You can do ppc, ppv, interstitial, and even press releases. The benefits of these methods is that they provide on demand traffic. You do however require a budget to test and work with. Good luck to you.

    It really depends on your niche - but as long as it isn't insanely competitive, I would opt in for SEO.

    It's certainly not fast but I'd say it's easily the #1 source of laser-targeted, 100% free traffic.

    But as I said, if you're in a very competitive niche, you will probably have to use either SMM (Social Media Marketing) or paid advertising such as Adwords or FB Ads.

    Cheers and good luck!

    Ask yourself : Do you have more time or money?

    If you have more time then money, focus on ONE method and ONE method only.

    You can search "Free traffic methods online" for tips and tricks.

    If you have more money, always start off with a low amount of money then scale.

    You can search "Paid traffic methods online" for tips and tricks.

    The TRICK is to focus on one method until you are producing results.

    I know for me personally I used to jump from one method to the next.

    It left me no where but spinning my wheels.

    Find one method that you like and stick with it until it gets you results
