There are certainly many ways to get traffic to your website...

But the two main ways fall on two categories: Free traffic or paid traffic.

Free traffic comes from SEO, social media, blogging, Youtube, article marketing and more.. (More on this later).
This free traffic builds your list very slowly but its free and that's the good part of it.

Paid traffic comes from buying advertisements from ad networks or simply by your paying advertising
space to website owners. There are so many ways to get paid traffic (more on this post later).

Paid traffic builds your list a lot faster, more measurable in the sense that you can track everything.

Now you choose how you market, free traffic, or paid traffic?

I suggest you do both... :D

Use Paid traffic for case study and A/B testing of your web pages. Plan to fail fast so you could alter needed in the right approach and directions.

Paid traffic is much more targeted and the results are much more impressive. So I vote for paid traffic. But I use free traffic too, if it does not take a lot of efforts to get.

haven't tried paid traffic. so my vote goes to free traffic.

so far, promising results naman if you're using the correct keywords and ayos ang spot ng ads mo. :D

Paid traffic can be very profitable. Depends on which one you use. In my opinion solo ads it still the best as long as the seller is a reputable one. Dont buy cheap traffic because its all dirt!

It depends from the source. Quality freelancing websites like SEOClerks have very good sellers that are offering paid traffic services. I suggest you check them out.

Paid Traffic definitely will come fast. But cannot ignore Free Traffic. You need to do both in order to maximize your traffic source.

I agree get both free and paid traffic. It is possible in my experience to grow a business faster with paid traffic. It is possible to leverage paid traffic.

My vote goes to free traffic source means Search Engine Optimization through which you can get maximum targeted traffic but it takes time and hardworking required but in the other hand for paid traffic you just have to pay for traffic which is the quick source to generate revenue. So, its totally depends on you....

I would go for both.

Pero if need mo talaga maoptimize yung number visits sa site mo faster, go for paid traffic. May mga websites naman na naghohost ng paid to click. ^_^ forgot yung site na pinupuntahan ko. hahaha

Paid traffic is ok for fast result, you just have to set a budget and always consider ROI. Dapat mamonitor din kung anong traffic source ang nagdedeliver ng most # of visitors, set a small budget first then scale big sa traffic source na mataas conversion rate. Paid traffic should be fast, scalable and consistent. Free traffic is ok but you have to be patient but the results are rewarding once you dominate this type of traffic specially if you rank high sa search engines.

Free traffic is the best. Because, every penny spent on paid traffic, adds up to your business expenses. The higher expenses your business have, the lower the profitability.

We need to do both. The advantage of paid traffic is it reached many highly targeted prospect fast. While the free traffic, needs more time, effort and skill to make people/prospect see your ads. However before you go to paid traffic, try free traffic first, dahil para ma-test mo rin if effective ba ang traffic strategy mo and pag-ok ang free traffic, you can maximize the use of paid traffic.
