      This is a common problem - there are too many things to do. Information Overload.

      What you need to do is try a few methods yourself. Then check you stats and see which method worked best for you.

      Think about how much effort you put in and then compare the amount of traffic.

      Obviously trying all of these ideas is just going to overwhelm you.

        Doing everything by your self is not recommended .

        So, outsource of the tasks.

    One thing that I have been doing lately is "sharing" my Google Reader RSS feeds. If you set up a Google Reader, and then subscribe to your own RSS feeds, you can then share them via the Reader and get extra link love (and traffic). It only takes a second for each post.

    Thanks for the list Mike.
    I will add
    - Creating small videos and submitting them to video sharing sites.

    Videos are one of the best ways to get more traffic.

    For blog pinging - I use pingoat.com - once you've set up a blog and pinged it once, you can save the URL as a shortcut so it's even easier the next time! I limit myself to pinging my blog twice per week, even though I usually post more often than that, but Pingoat can be used a couple of times per day if you need to.

    For the pinging thing I use ping-o-matic, pingler and pingoat.

    I also posted this in other forum, if you have e-commerce site you can promote your products on social shopping sites, wishlist sites, and deal sites. Some of them provide dofollow links.

    Pinging works well with me, i tend to do it 3 times a week and with a few sites on those days. I use pingoat ping-o-matic and a few others they seem to work well, but i do agree that 3 times a week, especially if your super busy like me is ideal.

    Probably the easiest way to get free traffic to your site is to offer an affiliate product....and have your affililates drive traffic to your site! Its free traffic for you, and if you give them a commission on a sale.....you only spend money from the traffic they earned.

          Thanks.
          In blogging, pinging is an XML-RPC-based push mechanism by which a weblog notifies a server that its content has been updated .

          Pinging is done after you post a new content so as to notify that you have a new content .

          I hope it helps .

Giving "contestants" assignments such as looking over my website, subscribing, etc has done a lot for my (new) blog and website over the past several days.

      And ultimately, with a blog in say blogger.com or wordpress.com and without own site (.com etc), how good can one be at selling own/affiliate products?

      In other words, what is the observed level of difference in people's attitude, if any, for similar contents but hosted differenty (own site versus blogger etc)?

        That's only a personal preference. Doesn't affect the "real" rankings. Just like if you want to do a "true" search... Make sure you aren't logged in to a Google Account.

      I don't believe in short cut to get what you want especially when you want to be successful in this business. I think better to try everything only then you know which one works the best for you. Only then I would suggest to go for the any service that offer the same thing. Since then you've already know what work and what not.

    These are some really great looking tips. Following them you can't usually go wrong. The important thing is just to work hard and not to have too big expectations. You won't generate a wide population over night, that's for sure!

    This is a great post,
    Their is the Social Sites missing from your website such as Twitter.
    I have also found that talking to simular websites, and asking them to display the lastest 3 blog posts (if their in the same niche) is a very effective way to generate traffic.

      Twitter is also a nice to to attract traffic .

      But , this tool is effective in building a social campaign .

      If you share free items in your website , you could get lots of free traffic to your website .

      But , maker sure to share valuable contents that can really help your customers or subscribers .

      Hey anuj291 ,

      As you said article marketing is great .

      The problem lots of marketers fail in article marketing is that most of them do it improperly . as a result they get burned .

      Always focus on creating high quality , fresh , helpful , search engine friendly and topical articles , and properly syndicate them across the net .

      This way , you would be able to get the required benefits .

    One of my favorite quotes that really helped my blog grow is this. Unfortunately I can't post the link.
    One Great Page is Worth a Thousand Good Pages

    While hundreds or dozens of on-topic pages that cover sections of an industry are valuable to a website's growth, it is actually far better to invest a significant amount of time and energy producing a few articles/resources of truly exceptional quality. To create documents that become "industry standard" on the web and are pointed to time after time as the "source" for further investigations, claims, documents, etc. is to truly succeed in the rankings battle. The value of "owning" this traffic and link source far outweighs a myriad of articles that are rarely read or linked to.

Just don't let the list lose your focus and make the mistake I did in become a knower of all and a master of none.

      Hey DrAl ,

      In any business , specially internet marketing related business FOCUS is key .

      It is always advisable to get focused while doing your business . That is , you have to do one thing at a time and you move to the other things , only after you finish your first activity .

      The same is applied to traffic generation activities .

      Always , give priorities and take a focused action .

    The steps that you offer is a great way for me to to stay focus. Now I better plan my day such as Monday, post to forums. Tuesday article marketing. Wednesday submit blog to directory, etc.

    I am a big fan of article marketing and forum marketing. With articles you get to own more space on the web and with the more space one owns the more traffic one will get.

    With forums I have found it to be effective being involved on one forum. Many people run around to 10 different forums. In order to establish oneself as reliable resource - its good to stay in one place.

    The article directories that I like are:
    Ezinearticles
    Articlesbase
    Searchwarp
    Goarticles
    eHow

      yeah that's right with SEO you can get a lot of free traffic. But to build SEO and get a lot of backlink, it's need long time to make your website #1 in searcg engine. you have to compete with good competitors.


      I prefer to Article marketing. Article marketing is the best.

        What I recommend is that ...

        Just draft a plan to drive short term and long term traffic to your website . Combine both long term and short term traffic strategies like PPC , SEO ,article marketing and others.

    Another way to generate free traffic to your blog would be to provide a free service that is constantly updated for your target audience. This technique was shared to me by a friend who runs a blog in his website dedicated to fitness.

    He works on his site alone, and I don't believe he does any of the mentioned 25 ways, since the site/blog is a labor of love. However, with just this, he rakes in half a million hits a month.

    The free service he offers to his audience includes GPS coordinates of the places he visits for dives, treks, mountain bike trails etc. together with photos of land marks and directions on how to get there.

    I believe that the premise behind this technique is "word of mouth" which is a form of free promotion in the circles of your target audience.

    This is a great list of ways to get traffic.. I've used most of them but still can't get a decent amount of traffic.. I guess I will wait on the next update of page rank.. I made up my mind to get my own domain, so hopefully this will help..

      Nah... It's all pretty simple. Don't get me wrong it's time consuming and at first can be VERY overwhelming! Don't overload yourself... You'll burn out and fail quite quickly, but if it's something you really want... Something you're passionate about, then it will turn into a simple routine!!
