Actually, there are a lot of ways to gain traffic to a site but may I ask why are skeptical about search engines? As far as I understand, this is the best place because this is where people go if they are searching for something.

Anyway, you join social networking sites such as Twitter. This is just another form of viral marketing. There, you must be patient enough in finding relevant visitors. You must be good in sales talk though.

I can also assume that you are referring to your site at your signature, right? With that, I think you are good in sharing sales advices.

Hope that helps.

You can submit your page in social bookmarking sites like digg, delicious, faves, wikio etc which will help you get good amount of traffic.

There is definitely no magic bullet; getting a steady stream of traffic is generally the result of implementing various things in a strategic fashion.

Default YouTube to drive people to a site

Seems like YouTube might be helpful in driving people to a site. Does anyone have advice on where to start with you tube, as far as creating and uploading? In other words...YouTube for Dummies! ?

Exactly The one trick you are using i mean signature in your link , And beside Search engine its difficult to have lot of traffic on your site but not impossible The one thing you have to do is join lot of social networks waste your time there and make lot of friends and fan ... After that Blog commenting is also another good idea . Article submission Is also very good but my dear these things want Time you have to spend lot of your time on internet if you don't want traffic from search engines ... Well these are free tricks And if you havn't much extra time and you can afford Some money then use Google adward And PPC
