    I use free methods such as social networking, social bookmarking, forums, etc. What kind of methods do you use to drive traffic to your website(s)?
    Anyone here use traffic exchanges?

    I don't use traffic exchanges at all. I don't think they have any merit IMO.

    Networking and Bookmarking both work for QRJuice, as do forums. 90% of my traffic for QrJuice is organize from Google though.

    Search engines have always been a major way to get traffic for free. That is why you need to do your homework and optimize your site so that it ranks well for the keywords you target. seo is still the most powerful way to get traffic for free and you really need to invest some time and efforts in the optimization of your site. seo is not that difficult and if you want to get familiar with it in a nutshell.

    Traffics can be created and obtained thru different means: online marketing is a powerful technique that can optimize your search engine rankings and create tremendous traffics. Be on the first page of Google seems to be very important. That's why proper optimization is needed. Also backlinks can be established thru using article and video marketing technique. It is not about the numbers more often it is about the quality to make a market.hope this can help :)

    That's just traffic in general. I'm asking about traffic that is relevant to your site(s).

    There are many methods to gain traffics yet it is important to capture the substantial traffics for your site. So I think it is the very first step that we need to do, Keyword Research. With Keyword researching we will have a grasp of the competition in the market. Also we can be easily index by search engines once our keywords are the searches use by the people. :)

    The most relevant traffic is from search engine and review site.

    Mostly social bookmarks and social networks will help you in that category.

    another way to get a relevant and targeted traffic is from yahoo answers.
    once you have posted a relevant link to a question, sure the traffic going to your site is a targeted one.

    I don't know about Directory Submission because nowadays it's useless. Although it still counts as backlinks.

    You should target more on local. Meaning you should have your place or wherever it is in your keywords (e.g. Pennsylvania Brewed Coffee, Virginia Candles, California Day Spa etc.)

    There are a lot of things on your website that you need to test in order to make sure that it can generate relevant traffic. You need to test your layout, your sales copy, etc. By testing these things you should be able to apply the necessary tweaks it needs to be able to generate relevant traffic.
    1. Sales copy – pay attention to headline, benefit and call to action
    2. Ordering process – make sure that a beginner would be able to follow your order process
    3. Opting-in – be sure that you are able to capture your prospect’s contact information
    4. Ease of navigation – make sure that your website is not complicated. Keep in mind that not everyone is internet savvy so keep it as simple as possible.

    If your project is commercial, then running a banner advertising campaign can also bring you traffic as well as new customers. When doing your media buying you should be able to analyse your ROI as it's sometimes can be quite pricy.
