    Free traffic may be slow and takes few weeks to build up, but once you build on it, you build a low investment high return business.

    Here are a few tips to build free traffic:

    1) Social media is the most important traffic source as of now. If you build a good presence there, you have a great source of traffic.

    2) YouTube is a beast. Tame it, and you do extremely well.

    3) SEO still works. For those who don't believe the power of SEO, its a personal experience. Trust me, SEO may do wonders.

    4) Build a list. This is the instant form of traffic.

    Whatever be the kind of traffic you are getting, get an optin!!

    You can get backlinks through various SEO strategies like article submissions, guest postings, forum postings etc. Make sure that you are not spamming anywhere otherwise you won't get the desired results.

    Yes I agree! If you are posting regularly on the social media websites, then you will surely notice an increase in your website traffic. Work on increasing the your social media network and keep posting on a regular basis.

    Indeed is quite slow to build up traffic from zero. But it really payoff If you're really committed. Backlinks are a very powerfull tool to boost your visibility, very handed to have it shortened. Never do spam with your links in pages not related to your content or business. Write a good quality Press Release, and pay for a decent distribution service.

    If you don't mind bot traffic just to boost statistics you can try out a traffic exchange site such as hitleap and start generating lots of pages hits to your site. It doesn't cost anything as you just leave the program running viewing other peoples sites which gives you minutes you can then use for other people to view your site. It works good if you do click exchanging, you use the traffic from hitleap to get your CTR down low on your site so the clicks look legit. That is sort of grey area stuff though so I don't know if you would be into that.

    Social media seems to be the #1 traffic source of the past few years. And it makes sense why, you build an audience on any of the major social networks, every time you post something no matter what it is, they all (or most of them) see it. You have a Twitter account with 10,000 followers, lets say you post a link to your blog, and then something like 7000 of them see it, and something like 100 actually click. That is 100 views on your site and your ads from one tweet.

    Tame social media people, it can be quite the monster if done correctly.

    That's absurd. We have 10k followers on our twitter account : blogging_co_in and do not get 7000 views on all tweets. Neither does it work on facebook. I like your enthusiasm but your numbers are misleading.

    Some fantastic tips here! I've been developing a new site for the past couple of days and will definitely refer back to this for inspiration when it comes to getting traffic to the site. I've been keeping a bookmark full of free traffic sites, ad rotators and exchanges. But now I'll definitely be adding social networking and blogs to the list too.

    I definitely agree with social being the king now. Social traffic is just so easy to get, it's ridiculous. If you have a legitimate following, I can't imagine why you would try to promote through other methods or means whatsoever...

    Well, PPC for one brings immediate results without you having to spend time with social gathering. Of course you shouldn't pick just one or the other, but PPC will bring in results from day one, whereas even the most successful social campaign will take few days to rake in anything.

    It's really the combination of all the methods that one needs to really succeed in internet marketing.
