    Ok, I have read two really good free pdf's on CPA (pm me if you want them) and overall it seems they are saying the best ways to get traffic to CPA's are:

    Youtube:
    Craigslist/backpage
    SEO traffic (Mostly going for just a few keywords highly related to exact match domain by writing 4-5 articles)
    PPC traffic
    Powerpoint traffic by uploading presentations to docstoc etc.
    Banner ads
    PPV traffic

    Which have you tested multiple times in creative ways (or have read that other people have tried) and turned out to NOT be effective?

    Basically I'm just about to start and I don't want to waste my time on methods that don't work, as I'm trying to make money asap.

    I've had the most experience in seo traffic, thats always worked well for me. I recently dabbled in facebook marketing as well with paid advertising, following a WSO. It worked out quite well, but like I said I only dabbled.

    All traffic sources are good. How a traffic can be bad? So far i have experience with 3 traffic sources and they are very different, with good and bad sides.

    1) YouTube - extreme fast traffic but not very stable and not converting very well

    2) SEO traffic - too slow and require some time, but stable on most cases and can be long term

    3) PPC - super targeted, high quality and good converting traffic, but expensive and risky for the new players

    I think PPC traffic has most conversions but it needs some investment to start making profits.

    All traffic is not equal, and just "traffic" alone doesn't get you paid. The more TARGETED traffic you recieve the more profitable that traffic source will be.

    Id rather 30 unqiues a day with a 20% conversion rate than 2500 unique visitors a day with 0 conversions. That's the difference between targeted traffic and "traffic". Don't get caught up in the lust for the numbers and concentrate on the quality and converting the visitors into profit. Stick with the 100/1 rule, if you get 100 visitors and not one of them is interested then you have some tweaking to do.

    And the Best traffic Method is, the combination of the best traffic methods.

    Plus one. I did Facebook paid ads but didn't make any money. The traffic gets in real fast because it's extremely targeted. But conversion is the king.

    I know it has been said before but organic SE traffic is still the best source of traffic out there. Reliable, long lasting, for the most part, and high converting!

    Yeah, but just way to damn hard to get. It's not worth my time and the huge amount of money it takes to hire people capable of writing articles good enough to get liked/tweeted about enough.
