    Before someone says there is no such thing as "FREE" because you're still spending time, yes I know this.

    When I say "FREE" I mean without dishing out money.

    I need some out of the box suggestions.

    These are some of the things that are ongoing:

    1) Creating Facebook pages, I have one reaching to 800K and another 60K - lower pages aren't worth mentioning.

    2) YouTube videos, constantly making new accounts - fresh videos, lovely tags. decent amount of views = conversion.

    3) Pinterest, again multiple accounts & mass following, commenting, repinning = good amounts to your site.

    4) Tumblr ^ fairly new one to myself but already showing good signs

    I've just mentioned social media, there would be others such as writing up blogs, blog commenting, blog exchanging, guest blogging, different forum techniques & many more.

    ..

    What works best for you?

    Youtube out of these brings the best traffic. Then Instagram. Then Facebook. Others might work for ones not work for quality traffic.

    I guess everyone prefers there options with their experience I wouldn't put Facebook in my top 5 if you've got services such as Pinterest/Tumblr available who do nothing but push traffic onwards whereas Facebook keep the traffic inside Facebook at all costs.

    Notice how Facebook kept YouTube onsite - we used to click the song title and it would go straight to YouTube not the case anymore. Same as Google Images you now click, it won't even show you the original site source in the background unless you click it - another attempt to keep traffic on site & obviously its going to work for them.

    Twitter is the boss of free targeted traffic. Most are too lazy and will not put in the work to achieve these great results, but when it works it is hands down the best IMO.

    For me personally, Twitter traffic is junk again its a figure game with Twitter and Facebook if you don't have high numbers then you'd be better of with other platforms that do magic even with the lower numbers and less strict API/banning rates.

    Make a website about a theme : Manga, movies, free, funny etc and find webmasters for links exchange, try to make a page and unique description for every site. when webiste have some traffic you can monetise it.
