Just leave a comment that answers the following question and you’ll get a shot at winning one of three $100 cash prizes:

    “What’s your favorite traffic getting technique?”

I’ll give out a prize for the best answer, one for the most creative and another for the funniest – so have some fun with it and give details :)

Also, be sure to check back in a few days – I’m sure they’ll be some great traffic generation techniques you can apply to your business.

I’ll pick the winners in a week… GOOD LUCK!


Congrats to our 3 winners:

  • Daiva
  • Elisabeth Kuhn
  • Lapeer county

Please keep an eye on your inbox – we’ll get in contact with you shortly so we can get you over your $100 cash prize.

    By the way, here’s a free report with a few of my favs….


  • Stanley Ng // Mar 26, 2010 at 2:47 am


    My favorite of traffic generate is through Facebook as it is free and easy to set up. Once set up it will collect name and email address on complete auto pilot.


  • Bona // Mar 26, 2010 at 2:50 am

    I am still looking for it !! ……(you did mean free traffic, didn’t you??)

    Have a pleasant day.

  • Jesus Moreno // Mar 26, 2010 at 2:53 am

    Although there are a lot of traffic generation methods, I personally prefer PPC because, with no doubt, is the most targeted traffic possible, and quick also because we can have the first results in few time. Still, we know that is not easy to dominate and besides the cost, specially now with Google, has become unreachable for many, including myself.

    for you

  • Arief // Mar 26, 2010 at 2:57 am

    For me, give comment in other blog is easy but too tired, through PPC, PTC or ads more expensive but more effective, and through facebook is the best, it is more effective, cheaper, easy and i like it so much,

    that’s all,

    have a nice day bro.

  • Dila // Mar 26, 2010 at 2:59 am

    How do I get my traffic? Well, I just started blogging (but got myself a super cool domain name and unique visitors came flowing in everyday!) and haven’t read or viewed much traffic-getting methods.

    What I did to get traffic other than socializing on Twitter, Facebook and forums? Of course posting great contents and just sit back and relax. Well, the site’s not a profit generating site. Just a simple information sharing blog I like to do :)


  • Elisabeth Kuhn // Mar 26, 2010 at 3:07 am

    My favorite traffic getting technique?

    It’s a 3 part system:

    a) Create squeeze page with free report or other gift

    b) Write articles about the subject, submit to Ezinearticles.com (and others) and use the resource box to send people to my squeeze page for their freebie.

    c) create a series of mini tips about the subject and send out as tweets on Twitter with link to my article(s) for more such info. I also send a few tweets directly to my free report squeeze page.

    That’s it. Wash, rinse, repeat.


  • Adrian // Mar 26, 2010 at 3:19 am

    Hello, Justin!

    my favourite technique is to drive targeted traffic using the power of social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Youtube, Flicker and others. Have a great weekend! Adrian

  • suhaimi // Mar 26, 2010 at 3:23 am

    I use traffic exchanges as you can expose your site, add text links and banners. I use a lot of sites like Hotspotmailer,Green-e-list because you can post after every 35 other posts by other members and these are great for PPC. The title that I wrote for safelists,traffic links,text ads and html ads which is the most effective is simply and very strangely just ‘Oiiiiii….’ A new TE offered email credits as a prize, I’ve won quite a bit and letting the Admin do a lot of mailing for me hehheh !

  • Vivek // Mar 26, 2010 at 3:40 am

    I think the best way to increase traffic is via Bulk emailing to the right people by offering some attractive scheme or offers , then comes is a facebook application and next is like affiliate marketing program like you are offering create a buzz by mass emailing and attract traffic :-)

  • Abdul Cholik // Mar 26, 2010 at 4:00 am

    I only use my two weapons to increase my traffic. One is blogging with my motto ” one day one post ” This weapon to ensure that the visitor always read a afresh content every day. The second one is blogwalking as many as possible. Visiting friends’blog and leave a good comment on their entry will attract others to visit my blog.

    My favourite way to get traffic is to stand in the street holding a large billboard saying ‘FREE BOOKS OFFER to anyone who clicks on http://www.write2profitonline.com/

    Yes you are correct. I use Facebook to collect name and email address for free. Once set up is completely in auto pilot.


  • aryotejo // Mar 26, 2010 at 7:06 am

    What’s your favorite traffic getting technique?

    1. Using Opt-In Lists – Opt-in lists are an essential part of any marketing campaign. These people are on a list because of the previous interest shown in the topic

    2.Organic Search Engine Traffic – Organic search engine traffic is probably the hardest to come by,if you manage it, you could be ranking the traffic is no time.

    3.Writing Articles – Writing relevant articles about the issue at hand will help bring very targeted visitors to your site too

    i think many way to get traffic

  • Arif mustain // Mar 26, 2010 at 8:05 am

    you want answers funny and creative?
    ok. I got her answers.
    to get a Traffic. do as I’ve ever run.
    make an announcement on your blog. you’re open jobs. free registration. for those who meet the requirements. you will receive. for seriously interested and can apply repeatedly with different email addresses and different times. one day may only register one time.
    promote your blog. wait a few days. Traffic you will get a frequency. they will always come to your blog to sign up.
    You do not have to open a real job. This is only a trap.
    you do not receive any requests. because of your job offer does not exist. they would never ask. why the application is not accepted?
    if the visitors began to decline. open more jobs more attractive.
    write good sentences to those who have been elected on the first job. even if you have never received any. they would never ask. who received the first job?
    write that. which have not been able to register a job in this second stage. do this over and over again. Sooo ……. you will never lose visitors. Your traffic will increase sharply. See my blog at: http://facgoya.blogspot.com
    for your success using this method.

    This is the effort to increase Traffic creative and funny.

  • LoneWolf // Mar 26, 2010 at 8:13 am

    My all time favourite method of getting traffic is just to sit back and wait for it.

    Unfortunately, that doesn’t work. So far, the best traffic generator I’ve had is HubPages articles, so I’m looking at expanding my article marketing.

  • Robert // Mar 26, 2010 at 8:21 am

    Give stuff (valuable info) away!!!

  • loan and insurance info // Mar 26, 2010 at 8:22 am

    Just one way, join 10 traffic exchanges. Surfing for 1 hour each day for one week. Your Site will be on the first rank of google search engine

  • Umar Hadi // Mar 26, 2010 at 9:25 am

    In my opinion, there are 7 marketing technique is very good in bringing in targeted traffic on the Internet:

    1. PPC – Google adword
    2. List building
    3. Affiliate system
    4. SEO
    5. Contests
    6. Facebook marketing
    7. Advertise in the high visit the web

  • AffiliatesTag // Mar 26, 2010 at 11:11 am

    Yahoo Answer. Seriously. It works like a charm. More importantly I get buyers, not just invalid traffic. It’s free… you just can chat, help, give good resources packed with your aff-tracking url or your own product. Simple and effective!

  • Abula // Mar 26, 2010 at 11:26 am

    I combine 2 or more ways to bring in traffic, on the grounds if there is a problem in that one then there’s another one still functioning. For example the way I combine: blogwalking and invite friends on social networking sites.

  • suhaimi // Mar 26, 2010 at 12:22 pm

    This is my favourite (and cheeky ) trick and it has worked well for programs that pays for a few levels of downline eg Geostring. I send support tickets with my link to Admins of most of the programs that I am a member of and hope they become my ref and start promoting :)

  • Charles Swope // Mar 26, 2010 at 12:51 pm

    I use Twitter and those low cost ad submitters.

  • Patti Barr/SilverDark // Mar 26, 2010 at 3:25 pm

    Hi Austin,
    my very favorite way to get traffic is through the Exchanges especially Thumb-Vu and StartXchange. Fast, Easy and i get to see what else is out there! it only takes about 1 hour a day and I learn all kinds of things every day.

  • Patti Barr/SilverDark // Mar 26, 2010 at 3:30 pm

    Sorry Justin…for putting in wrong name!! Too many emails at once!!
    I Apologise

  • Daiva // Mar 26, 2010 at 3:45 pm

    My very first blog (fan site of the XFactor singing competition contestant) had most visitors from Google images and Google search.

    I named each image as my main keyword (for search engines), also added my website address to each image (for humans to see).

    Fans went crazy, downloaded my images to their computers, posted them to their Facebook, blogs and hundreds of other sites, most didn’t remove the line with my website address so I had tons of people visiting my site because it became viral.

    First month I had 510 UNIQUE visitors, second month – 33,287, third month – 53,423 . Not too bad for a very first blog:)

    Google images is a great way to get traffic for celebrity, art, design, humor, photography and similar sites. Even if your picture is on Google images page 20 you still have a good chance to be found.

  • Jeff Bode // Mar 26, 2010 at 4:30 pm

    I like something that doesn’t require a lot of time, but that I can provide value to get targeted traffic to my site…

    To do this I usually reuse content ex.

    Create a short report and link to my optin page… then I submit the report to various sites like scribd… I also may give them to other marketers to give to their list, while I give them to my list as well.

    Then I’ll take that content turn it into articles and post it to article directories, web 2.0 blogs and related forums

    I may even turn the article into a video and post it to video sharing sites and take the audio portion and submit that to podcast sites
    …that’s how I maximize my free traffic efforts

  • iip albanjary // Mar 26, 2010 at 4:52 pm

    organic method through search engine is the best methods for long period.

    have a nice day:)

  • Bang Iwan // Mar 26, 2010 at 5:42 pm

    I think to increase visitors there are several steps we can do, one of them is like you do.
    Make a contest with attractive prizes. People will follow your blog in hopes of winning the prize. If you give a gift that will attract certain news quickly spread, but first make sure first that the blog you have many loyal readers.

    Nice day.

  • andy // Mar 27, 2010 at 7:32 pm

    I use to promote my blog and other program with the following method:

    The first method is blog commenting, although this is a traditional way, but this is one of the most effective ways that I use for blog promotion. There are many benefits that I can get, for example i can get targeted traffic to my blog, i can communicate with other blogger, so I can exchange ideas and share some tips about blog, It will increase blog position in search engine and get loyal readers by creating quality and useful articles. To optimize it.

    Second, I use Facebook by creating fans page, and do a regular post. This method can increase 20% -30% visitors to the blog and other program. I also use Twitter to promote my articles. This is a very easy way. I use a mass follower tool to get thousand follower as fast as possible. This promotional method is very easy and can save my time. But it will get you traffic for sure.

    [...] Dollar Idea: the Total-auto-smart-responder | Home Biz Daily Meta Tag Optimization | SEO Consultant Traffic Getting Contest | Internet Marketing With Justin Michie Posted by Webmaster at 7:46 [...]

  • lapeer county // Mar 28, 2010 at 11:00 pm

    I made up little stickers (1″x2″) with my URL & a 10 word description on it.
    Once a week I go to 5 different gas stations & put $10 worth of gas in my truck from each place.
    While I’m filling up, I stick one of the stickers either underneath the receipt slot or near the pump number.
    People look at these places while they’re filling up since they’ve got nothing better to do!
    Works like a charm, sends lots of visitors to my local city website.
    Get even more exposure by visiting 5 totally different stations each week (since you have to fill your vehicle up anyways).

  • Azebaja // Mar 30, 2010 at 6:20 pm

    Hello Justin… Sorry I am late to open up your message :)
    Ok. Talking about traffic, I personally use the search engine like Google, and I use some article marketing, and of course I also use and take advantage of free classified ads, and from my experience, there is a line of classified ads site on the internet (though not all) have a pretty good ranking on search engines, so I think there is no harm in using them to generate traffic that targeted to my website, and the best part of that traffic generated through search engines is an targeted traffic. That’s what all this time I use to generate traffic to my website, and great about using this method, indirectly we are also building some back links to our sites, and traffic that produced if appropriate keywords in the search by typing in Google keyword in accordance with our aim and our input into the ads or articles written, the result is, I get continuous traffic, yes.. For articles or ads that we have made, usually stored in website for a long time!
    So how do you think Justin’s, whether the method I use to enter the category you’re searching for? He… he… if yes, maybe I am the one who will win the prize of this contest (god I hope so, make Justin chose me to be the winner ;-) ) Well thank you for giving me opportunity to take part in this,

    Success for all of us.
