    Yes, Opting for PPC proves very beneficial to increase web traffic. The only problem with PPC is that it is paid service whereas SEO and SMO are free services. But, you still improve your traffic by doing only Off-Page SEO.

    Hi Rajwinderk,

    All 3 of those channels are going to cost you resources in the form of time, expertise, and/or money. So don't buy into the notion that any of it is free, because it is not.

    How much you should invest in each channel will vary based on your niche, your marketing strategy, and your available resources.

    PPC will generate the quickest results and often the greatest results over the long run, however because it is immediate and highly effective you are likely to have a lot of competition, which may not only increases the cost, but also the expertise required to effectively compete. If you have the time and resource to learn it you can do it yourself. Or, consider hiring a PPC ad agency to get the instant expertise needed to be competitive within your niche.

    SEO can often provide a higher ROI in the long-term, but generally takes much more upfront investment and a much longer window of time to reach break-even on your investment. Again, a certain amount of expertise must be acquired to make this channel successful, many have tried and failed. A really good agency will typically get you results faster but there are many SEO agencies that lack the proper expertise, or use unethical business practises, so be careful when hiring an SEO agency. Some will use your funds to build their own network and as soon as you stop paying they remove all the backlinks they control. This negates the opportunity to reach the higher ROI potential that is possible if you do it yourself, or hire a more ethical agency.

    SMO, can be effective for certain types of niches where your target audience is very active in social media groups. SMO can be great for amplifying your brand message among your fan base. For most industries social media will generate only a tiny fraction of website traffic (~5%) for the niche, so in many cases it is only good for supplemental traffic generation and cannot be used exclusively if you intend to get a significant share of the market. And, in some cases, especially where brand is not important, SMO may be wholly ineffective.

    Whatever you decide, you should always take into account where your target audience usually goes to find your product or service, and make sure you can be easily found where they are most likely to seek you out.

    Also, consider using a strategy where you engage your target audience in multiple channels because many of you competitors are already doing this and your visibility and reach will be diminished if you are absent wherever people are expecting to find you.

    SEO, SMO & PPC all these have their quality. SEO is for quality link building as well as ranking. SMO is for online promotion and engagement of customer towards the post and PPC is for paid ads which is very powerful technique of bring business at very high cost with quality. All of them play vital role to bring website traffic which helps to get more businesses.

    Try to go to communities and freelancer sites - its faster way to get clients, start with low price then after you get trust and feedback - increase your price for web-development on ad-words can cost you 10-20 dollar per click..

    I think the most important thing here is the quality of your website. If the website has good quality, and all SEO works are done properly, you will get traffic to your website eventually.
    In my point, it is not how to get traffic fast, but to create valuable content so visitors will come back. For me, PPC is fast but it is meaningless if your website has nothing to offer.
    I am also working on my blog, no traffic yet but I am now focusing on creating valuable content.

    PPC especially Google, Bing is expensive and ROI is tough if you are not enough expert about it. So try to focus on SEO - cost effective method. and definitely facebbok advertising - quite cost effective but ROI can be achieved easily.
