    I'm just trying to figure out a way to generate a lot of traffic without SEO.

    I've tried Youtube with PPD links but they're not getting much traffic. Then when I boost them they start getting traffic, but get banned (even though they have legit files). I even tried using GSA SER on 1 of my video URLs and got about 300 submissions and 80 verified the last time I checked. But the video hasn't even got one extra view from it. Every now and then I'm using pinblaster to pin tons of recipes on my website, but they're not generating a lot of traffic, even if I repin popular pins and change the URL.

    Any suggestions on some ways to generate traffic without SEO?

    I also tried some other methods like posting links on Wikipedia, although they would only last about an hour, I still didn't get any traffic at all.

    Dude, I realise you want your sig link seen but could you try posting better responses to people otherwise it looks like sig spamming.

    Is it a hard thing to setup? I might have to try something like that. The only thing I'm really worried about is finding all the emails, and getting in trouble by my ISP for sending too many emails or have people report spam. Is that a big issue? I'd be especially worried considering spam is illegal I think :p Although of course I would provide a unsubscribe link. But I'd probably have to make a script to scrape all the emails from some source, so it wouldn't be subsciber based.

    Have you tried social media?

    That would probably be the first place after SEO I'd look to generate more traffic.

    I like the idea of getting traffic from social media, but it seems you need to generate traffic to those social media sites first :| Like I created a Facebook page for my Youtube channel and for the longest time had 0 fake likes on my page, but then now my Youtube channel has almost 1000 real subscribers (and 300k viewers overall), and it's starting to get some Facebook likes. But it's a very small presence :( It feels like this route has a whole new obstacle of trying to figure out how to generate traffic to the Facebook/Twitter account :S I know I heard of some methods of getting likes by e-whoring lol but that's like the only thing I can think of and it's not even close to any of the niches I would want to get into.

    Dude, post something epic and original, something groundbreaking. Share that with some influencers and if they say "This guy is crazy, check it out" , you're on the good road.

    WTF, you posted a spammy link on Wikipedia and no one except wikipedia editor clicked? No way man! I do this every day and get loads of targeted traffic eager to spend some cash.

    Wake up people NO ONE GIVES A FUCK ABOUT SPAM

    That's a good point. Sad thing is, I don't even think the editor clicked the link either lol It was spammy, but not that spammy. I posted on a Wikipedia page for Zelda the game, and it was a link to my site offering the Zelda game download for android. The odd thing is though, is there were no other external links except for the official one to Nintendo. I suppose it's understandable that they would definitely remove a link to a website offering a copyright download ASAP, but I wonder if they just delete anything that shows up or something.

    Resources had like a millions links, but external had one.

    Social media marketing is 2nd best option after search engine traffic. If you update your site regularly, try to use ifttt (google it). Create recipes in ifttt as many as possible. You will get backlinks from social networking sites and your page/profile will be active without touching it. Engage your users with survey, poll, giveaway (you can do fake one), funny picture, jokes, breaking news, etc...

    Sorry, forgot to mention about yahoo answers and reddit. Both can be heavy traffic generators, if you use wisely.

    Youtube, free ads, forums, wtf, there's fucking tons of places for traffic to be generated, just go for it.

    Really, just google one thing and work with it, because if you'll try everything, you'll be working for year. Then you'll understand what you're doing and only then (and just MAY be) you will pick to work just one traffic method and will start to work with it until you'll make millions of dollars like real internet marketing guru.

    I would go with social media as well. Twitter seems to work best as you can easily retweet other people's tweets or talk to potential followers. It takes a little bit of time, but it can really work out in your favor. Start talking to others and one you get a few followers, hopefully they start retweeting your tweets. I have no idea what you are promoting, but it has worked well for me in the past.

    The answer site idea is a good one too, and they drive really targeted traffic to your site.

    I've been struggling to get traffic too man, lol. I just thought of some cool ideas that might help you out, that I'm gonna be trying later on.

    If you have some money to invest, try these:

    - Pay an already famous youtuber, with an active fanbase to promote something thats related to your niche. (Facebook page, cpa download, website, etc.)
    - Pay people who have a video already ranking and getting traffic, to add your link to their description, and use an annotation that pauses the video for a bit so people will read it, and more likely click your link.
    - Contact popular pinterest accounts, facebook pages, twitter accounts, tumblr accounts or other social media accounts with an active and large fanbase in your niche. Ask them to promote your shit or w.e
    - Find highly known/active blogs/website related to your niche, and send them a professional email talking about something in your niche that their viewers would love to read about. Then you send them an article promoting your shit, and ask them to link your site/or w.e to get more information about said topic. (Read more here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-term-search-engine-optimization-results.html)
    - FaceBook ads, google ads, bing ads
    - Sponsored Tweets
    - Could try using https://revenue.com/ as an advertiser.
    - Theres always mylikes (lol)
    - Solo Ads (to build your own email list?, and get traffic too)
    - Theres other paid methods I'd right down, but id rather save the "juicy" stuff for myself ;)

    If you dont have money to invest, try these:
    - Torrents (ha!)
    - FaceBook group posting
    - Yahoo answers
    - google alerts method (Read more here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...to-huge-profit-highly-competitive-niches.html)
    - Youtube commenting (rate your comment to the top comment. Fiver gig you could try: http://www.fiverr.com/magilos/thumbs-up-your-youtube-comments)
    - Forum Posting (boring, i know...)
    - PostLoop (lol)
    - Print some flyers, put em up in the bathroom stalls of supermarkets, and maybe your school, on peoples cars, etc.
    - Ok, Ill give you a juicey one anyway. Lol this could be used for cpa, so listen up. Go on craigslist, pretend to sell something, and tell people to email you at your (fake) gmail to get more info if thier interested. Have an auto-responder setup to auto reply a day later around 6PM or w.e. Make it so it it tells them to enter thier emial on your opt-in list because you're getting a lot of emails and its hard to keep track, and you'll get back to them when you get things sorted out. After a few days, email everyone saying someone already bought the item. (the item could be a hot product on amazon or w.e to get more views). In the email also say that you'll keep thier email and send them any news about you selling/giving away anything for free, and they'll know about it FIRST.
    Now for moneeyyzz. You could send them a CPA offer everynow and again, saying that you got a free giftcard or some shit like that, and send them your cpa link. I dont know how well it'll work, but its an idea that could make you some money.


    Anyway. Those are just some random things I thought of now, good luck with your traffic/money earning. ;)

    EDIT: forgot to post the links to read more about the things I mentioned lool

    Not this self promotion crap again...

    To OP, I agree with the people above about social media - I think they have explained everything already. If you want to know more, I suggest you read some journeys. They explain how they make money and stuff. It is priceless there.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys :) It gives me a good idea to start with. I might try out the Facebook group posting. I think I will have a bit of luck with that. Thanks again!
