Take forums for example, if you're doing 20 things every day, and forums is just one of them on your list. Because you're doing so many things, you spend about only 10 minutes on forums, which doesn't bring you any real results. That's 10 minutes wasted. However, if you only do 2 or 3 things, and focus on forums for about 30min every day, and contribute value, then your results will be much higher.
So which are the traffic methods that you really focus on?
