    Wasn't sure which forum to post this in but here seemed most relevant... Especially now that people are losing rankings.

    If your not high in the SERPS where do you get your traffic from? Specifics ( rather than just saying ppc or ppv) would really be appreciated.

    You can get a substantial amount from referrals and social media. Sometimes I get 30-40% of my daily traffic from some great guest post or excellent link that I built with good content surrounding it.

    Advertising on a similar niche website: paying a website to have a link/banner/advert on their site, or possiby cut deal for link/banner/advert exchange.
    Paid Targeted Traffic: some people sell the service of 1000 US targeted UVs/24hrs...etc

    Well if you built backlinks by commenting on blogs,readers could be simply clicking your anchor text link in your comment.

    This a truly noob question worthy of being found anywhere on sites like WF. There are a lot of wannabe black hats out there.
    I wouldn't entertain answering such a question. C'mon man. 'Where does your traffic come from'?where does your internet come from?
    GTFOH with that.

    honestly you can get traffic from any source... Besides organic rankings, Social Media is my favorite... If targeted properly you can make a killing... More specifically, Twitter and Pinterest can make you some mad bank. But you can honestly get traffic from any source, just pick one and get to work.

    My belt is holding up my pants, and the belt loops on my pants are holding up my belt. Who is the real hero? I don't know what's really going on down there!

    Yes, diversify. But unfortunately search engine is never a strategy to ignore for me. Too lucrative. And there are big in volume.

    One of my sites had the majority of its traffic from Reddit!

    If you're a little bit inventive you can get each and every post you put up on multiple boards, and then all you have to do is log on 2 or 3 times a day and answer any questions which come up that could be conceivably be answered by one of your posts with a nicely typed reply with a link to said article.

    Quite easy, and quite effective, but definitely more work than waiting on organic traffic.
