    Hi all,

    I have just recently built a movie site and done some promotion to get traffic.

    We all know traffic = $$$$$. And without traffic, your site will just be floating around in an empty void.

    Now, I am getting "some" traffic but if I'm ever going to replace my income from other methods then I need a heck of a lot more... I'm talking atleast 500UVs per day.

    I've uploaded watermarked trailers to youtube, posted on other movie sites, yahoo answers, uploaded torrents etc.

    So what I'd like to know is:

    Could someone please give some detailed advice on generating lots of traffic to a movie site?


    Not the simple: "upload videos to youtube"... I'm talking some real helpful advice.

    I know nobody will reveal their "magic formula" but there has got to be some way out there to get atleast 500UVs per day.

    This will also help other people struggling to get traffic to their Movie/TV show sites.

    Thank you for your time :)

    Even if it's all about movies you need text. Text is indexed, text brings you SE traffic and so on. Be creative and try to include as much text as possible.

    I could expand on the idea that was provided regarding text and the benefits it provides relative to SEO. However, you mentioned you were comment spamming, doing yahoo answers, and using some other traffic methods, but were still not getting 500UV/day.

    Well....this method ain't so easy anymore. Since 1000+ people jumped on the bandwagon, and spammed the crap out of everywhere - there aren't many places to find traffic for these methods, and even when you can...they don't convert as well as even just a couple months ago.

    So....

    Maybe you're barking up the wrong tree. Movies may remain quite cold and static for awhile as a traffic source. They will rise again as they always do...look for Iron Man 2 as a possible serious contender for making money.

    Iron Man 1 remains my all-time cash smasher.

    Between now and when the summer craze kicks off - try something besides movies - perhaps TRENDS.

    Alternatively, you could avoid the pitfalls of these types of businesses by setting something up that is more long-term in the first place.

    Don't ask me how I know.
    :)

    What kind of rankings are you getting on google? This is where most of your traffic will come from. Learn about building linkwheels & about backlinks. These will help get your site on top of the search engines on google. Get some programs to help yourself like Market Samurai SEONuke and Scrapebox once you start making money. Also try Tube Toolbox which has been shared on BHW.

    Sure there is, but nobody is going to share it with a leech with 1 post.

    Do some contributions here and maybe someone will give you some good advice.

    PRETTY MUCH LISTEN TO THIS GUY, I LIKE HIS POSTS THEY ALWAYS MAKE ME LAUGH.

    Back to the topic of how to get traffic.

    FACEBOOK!!!!
    That should do it.
    Create a page and mass spam on all groups and pages trust me is worth it.

    If I were you I would throw a look at the features traffic geyser has to offer ( hxxp://trafficgeyser.c0m/offers) .
    Its video blasting / video submission capabilities are considerable and you can get an one month trial membership with them for $1 or so...
