TRADITIONAL METHODS OF TRAFFIC GENERATION THAT I LOVE
Some of the best ways I know of generating traffic have been around for years. They‟re not particularly sexy or glamorous BUT they do work.
Generate Traffic From Blogging
Blogs are a wonderful way of getting traffic and building relationships – either with your own blog or through other peoples.
This is one of my personal favorites and it works extremely well.

Visit other blogs in your niche and then add comments to posts which you feel you can contribute to (this can be a question, challenge, feedback, or an addition to the post).
The secret is to make your comments engaging and thoughtful, and then include a link in the box provided back to your website.
The chances are you‟ll already know some popular blogs in your niche, but if you don‟t then they‟re easy to find using Google.
After a while, if you regularly comment on a particular blog you can also begin to build a relationship with the blog owner, which could lead to backlinks, interviews or the chance to appear as a guest blogger. Another benefit of posting regularly is that many blogs have a „Frequent Commentators‟ box or similar – giving you extra exposure.
It‟s always good if you‟re the first person to leave a comment on a particular post because that means you‟ll be at the top and more likely to get read.

If you sign up to a blog’s RSS feed, you will be automatically updated when a new blog post is published, so this is easy as long as you‟re quick.
Another good strategy is to find posts which appear to be popular (posts which already have a lot of comments) and add an additional one.
The reason for this is that people keep coming back to these posts and you can find yourself getting traffic back to your sites YEARS after the original post was made.
The best piece of advice I can give with blog commenting is to simply join in the conversation. Add your own personal thoughts to the original post and try to make your comments interesting and worth reading.
Don‟t just post one liners (e.g “great post”) as this is boring and people will see through the fact that you‟re only doing it to advertise your website and get your link on there.
