    My favorite source of traffic is organic traffic from Google search engine!

    My sites with organic traffic are my favorite. Ranking a few keywords on page 1 and 2.

    Facebook traffic works great if you have a built up reputation. For me I push traffic to my product fanpage and it does quite well.

    Email traffic is also something I couldn't live without. Been building my lists for a long time so it's always been very reliable and productive. As long as you keep adapting to any changes that pop up here and there

    Good luck mate =)

    Organic traffic is the most constant, as other members say. But Pinterest has been working pretty well for me lately, and sometimes platform-based traffic sources can scale much faster than organic SEO, which takes a lot of time to develop well.

    Organic traffic from Google. The conversion rate is always 1% and above.

    Compare to Facebook or other medium type of traffic source.


    Because people search for it. People find us. Not we find them.


    Google = they find us. Their credit card is ready.
    Facebook = we need to find them + we need to showed them what product we are trying to sell that is relate to their interest. Could be they just interest but not have a credit card etc.

    I prefer Google SEO traffic. It is one of the way I spend less time marketing a page for long lasting effects. And, people are coming to your website because they are looking for something. If it is a product, they are ready to be an happy customer.

    Even though nearly all of the traffic on my websites is organic, direct returning traffic (e.g., visitors typing in your URL) is actually my favourite source of traffic. It lets me know that people enjoyed my content the last time and came back for more. In other words, it tells me I'm doing something right and encourages me to keep writing on those sites.

    So much of that depends on what you are doing. If you are selling cars google is prob not your best option. What are you going to optimize your keywords for? You will get better traffic from craigslist, ebay, facebook cars for sale groups. If you are selling one niche product SEO is the way to go.
