Hello Everyone,

I think search engine optimization is the best way to get traffic from search engines. Beside forum marketing and social networks also work. I think every website have a main source of its traffic. For me, I am getting good traffic from Google, a little from Bing and 20% from social networks. Let me know yours...what is the main source of your site traffic ?

    Best source of website traffic is Search Engine Optimization and Social Media Marketing. Daily post fresh content on your website and promote it, in your targeted audience. In Social media LinkedIn and Quora is best source of traffic.

    I will say social media. As I am doing both SMM and SEM, while checking on google analytics, I always see the main source of my traffic is from Social Media.

    ALWAYS paid traffic, I've been doing it for the last 4 years and have mastered basically all channels. Free traffic is great but it's not scalable whatsoever.

    I drive that traffic to either a squeeze page or affiliate offers, both cost per sale ones and cost per action ones.

    Well ,
    My Main Source of Traffic is Google and I didn't make any website whose search volume is less then 10000 per month because if it not running on affliated links then it is waste of time.
    But if you have a Strong Social Media Stretegy then It is best then Google because when google changes it Algorith like last time then everything ruined but social media remain forever.

    Email list.. plus the more you send them a link to some good info (no spamming ofc), it also boosts your Alexa ranking.. if you care bout that.

    For new sites, the main source of traffic is usually social or paid traffic. Paid traffic converts at ten times the rate of social traffic. So, there is traffic and there is targeted traffic. I'll take the targeted traffic of paid search over the whim traffic from social media every time.

    For websites that have been around awhile, our number one source of traffic is organic search. The money we spend for paid traffic does not change from the first day. As our websites climb the rankings, a far lower percentage of visitors come from paid traffic vs. organic.

    Social media is one of the biggest sources of traffic generation for an online business. But, it isn't easy as it looks. You can get immense likes on your social media page but it wouldn't be effective until you bring the urge inside your readers to have a glimpse on your Facebook or other social media posts.

    A big portion of traffic can be generated from search engines, where you need to work a lot to grab the top position by kicking others from there who are securing that position from decades. Here SEO could help you a bit, but when you are following the legal ways.

    SEO is an important part of generating traffic.A site should be optimized very well so that the audience engagement increases. Apart from SEO, there are several ways to generate traffic-

    - Blog posts - High quality content generation for targeted audience.
    - Forum engagements on relevant forums
    - Social media platforms - Researching where your audience is most active and strategically using those platforms.
    - Directory submission
    - Infographic submission (if you have some good infographics to share)

    Hope this helps!
