Hello! This is my first post, and it is somewhat long. Kindly bear with me. I just stumbled upon this site a few hours ago, and it's like I entered Willy Wonka's wonder factory... I am a webmaster and developer, and have launched several sites in the past. However, despite busting a** everyday trying to get traffic to these sites, it was really hard work. I am the first person to jump eagerly into work, but I know I'm doing something wrong when I can't cross 10 unique visitors a day no matter what I do. Buying traffic through traditional modes like adsense is out of the question at this juncture, as I simply do not have the funds for that. I can and will invest most of my earnings into this however, once my sites start generating revenue. More than anything else, I believe in the model where traffic grows organically and revenue is earned through ads. I will experiment with niche e-commerce sites now that I learned serious money can be made from it, but all my current experience and ideas are geared toward the former. TL;DR. Now for the real question. I have just launched a free directory for doctors and medical professionals. My goal is to have an explosion of traffic from both doctors and patients so the site can get meaningful data and traffic. I know that once the content on my site starts to increase, Google will handle driving more traffic in There are some really good packages in the "services on offer" section of this site. What would be a good starting regimen, so I can see the first fruits of my labor brought to bear? I feel this would be a good mix: EDU backlink sale (this would seem a no-brainer: I can also try and request for links from medical universities when I buy, to increase my ROI) Facebook Likes (I am doubtful about this - will it drive the right volume of traffic? It seems like something people would do later on) G-Hunter from the Decode Google thread I particularly chose these because they all need an investment of below $100 each. I can squeeze that out, but anything more would be an unbearable burden at the moment. There are so many packages in there that I'm greatly confused, and afraid of sinking money into the wrong packages. May I humbly request the experienced hands here to provide basic guidance I can act on?
