    I would say: the outside world. Not sure about the effect of this but you could try magazines, (local) newspapers, flyers in your neighbourhood. Although the last two are probably much more effective if your website is focussed on your own region.

    Very often I see those QR-code strickers placed on all sort of places, they are really a hype atm in my country, but I don't think they are very effective. I mean which idiot would grab his phone to see what site or message is placed behind the code. Although it might be fun for a few times.

    Other (probably uneffective) ways I can think of is wearing a t-shirt with your url on it (or rather paying someone wearing a t-shirt with your url on it), the all time classic of putting your url on a pen, placing stickers with your logo and url in the public area, tagging your url on other peoples walls, creating a crop circle with your url in it and alert the press etc. etc.

    Its a shame spammers and wrongdoers infect every area of working. This field has now become too crowded and i think many will try to develop alternates.

    Tis yes, but they are unfortunately something we have to deal with on a daily basis. It soils the playing field though, as it makes all IM's look like spammers. LOL the crop circle idea is the perfect idea of guerrilla marketing though. One farmer in the US wrote a thank you note in his field and it was covered by just about any newspaper I could imagine

    I have my sites on the Quick List of blogging and pinging every time for web crawlers, also for good backlinks are blog commenting, forum posting,video marketing, SMO and guest posting is a best and very effective way.

    I think the best way to getting traffic is backlinks.

    Other then SEO it ois really hard to find traffic. There is not such an effective platform in online marketing that without doing SEO, you may get traffic. So, it is very essential part of it.

    I do agree with the fact that SEO is very competitive and not easy for most marketers, especially newbies. But when you focus on it and learn the tricks, you can easily compete favorably. To succeed in internet marketing, one has to apply several marketing methods. It's therefore important for any marketer to endeavor to learn SEO as one of the best method of driving free traffic to your website.

    Sure we get traffic from social bookmarks! But you must be accurate with posting in social bookmarks in order not to look as a spammer.

    It's effective as long as you post your links on high PR blogs on the actual page of your link. Been using that strategy, forum posting, and article submission. The 3 strategies are just enough to give me juice.

    Forums, blogs, social networking sites are good strategies to improve traffic. You can also use blog commenting and social bookmarking.

    Get popular videos and put them on your website. Videos that are not accessible otherwise and can be accessed on your website can create a sensation throughout the world. You will get more web traffic if you have such popular videos.

    Targeted traffic is better than generic traffic. The best ways to get traffic (in my opinion) are these:

    ** forum ads
    ** forum comments
    ** blog comments
    ** blog posts
    ** articles
    ** videos
    ** classifieds
    ** mailing lists/newsletter
    ** newsletter swap/exchange
    ** solo ads

    Stay away from craigslist, unless you want useless traffic with lots of spammers. It depends, what kind of business website do you have?

    Today it's very important:

    1) indirect traffic

    2) organic traffic (or call it as direct traffic)

    Indirect traffic comes from videos, ads, socialmedia, blogs, comments, etc. Direct traffic comes from search engines (we use SEO).

    You must reflect to use them all, it's important for your business. For example if Google ban your site you can lose all your traffic forever (think to Google Panda penalization), some customers got this!

    I would say make JV with people who has a considerable of subscribers (email list)

    If you don't want to work on SEO, then you need to work on your IM relantionships and partners.

    But keep in mind that you're going to be always "dependent" of your IM buddies in order to get visitors to your site.

    PPC, PPV, CPM, and Media Buys but these are expensive ways for getting traffic.
