The methodds you're using are quite effective, but still I wouldn't say they are fast.I'm convinced that all good job may be done within some period of time, and it demands a lot of efforts.Well, I speak for myself though

I am rather impartial, but i think the best way to generate traffic is through social media. Use pages like LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. Be sure to include your like where ever possible and anchor text, also.

Remember with website traffic, it is a jog, not a sprint. Take your time, form relationships and your hard work will pay off.

I think forum signature and social media like twitter and facebook are really working for me.

Have a nice day,

It always depends on your niche as to what will work best - not everything works well on social media nor does everything work well on ezines.

Personally, I have had much better success from slower methods like backlink building and article promotion than anything else.

One traffic tip that I would share with you (and most marketing and traffic guys won't tell you this) but you can't rely on any one method to get traffic. You may want to look at a variety of offline strategies including small ads, classifieds, etc. Depends on what you're trying to sell.

Additionally, you may have to go PPC and good search optimization with good and original content helps.

Also, don't forget to add 'Tell a Friend' links and make sure your newsletter or e-mail provides good information with an invitation to pass it on and get others to subscribe.

Hope this helps!

Yes, Of course the one which you have discussed here are of utmost important but there are other methods such as Social Bookmarking, Social networking which is basically called as Web 2.0.

Be very careful if you use PPC - a lot of people start off with this and lose a lot of money in a short time. You need to have someone on board who knows exactly what they're doing with it!

message boards and forums are great but so is article marketing. many of my websites that have high rankings have them because of articles.

It is important to remember that nothing is instantaneous and it takes time and effort to drive traffic. PPC can be a good, reasonably fast driver but it costs money, especially if you are in a competitive niche. Get links to your site from others backlinks. Write high quality unique content and promote it widely on article directories. Generating website traffic is has a pyramid effect. You create a quality website that people love to share, person recommends that site to someone else, and the word of mouth can slowly but surely spread.
