    Everybody uses different methods so which one's are your favorite to build more traffic and which ones do you think work the best?

    I know people here flag on search engine traffic, but it is my favourite method. It converts the best in the majority of situations, it is targeted and it is largely free. It is also the quickest way in most situations to bring in large amounts in a cost-effective manner.

    The thing to do, is to be incredibly careful about basing a basing a business/income on it. If you do, be sure to store away money for a rainy day, because you might need it. Take advantage of it, but SAVE. Try to re-invest it in non-internet based things as well if you can.

    Honestly, everything. I would never rely on a single source. Too many to list.

    There should always be ppc, seo, affiliate, reseller, offline advertisements, online advertisements, word of mouth, etc. Depends highly on your budget, psychology and market.

    I made a huge mistake by fooling around when I was on the first page of google for my main keyword and had the capability to generate £2000+ a week ($3200). now I got banned and I didn't even save for this shitty rainy day.. (was #1 on google for 2 weeks and now I can't fin myself in the first 30 pages) Thanks god I'm crawling up for my second keyword slowly. (page 8->4 in 2-3 days) but it barely generates anything.

    Once upon a time it was straight search traffic, but that started to become more and more unpredictable. Now I find I can get more traffic from youtube (and other video sites), Twitter, Facebook, and even Identi.ca.

    I'll still do the basic and Google accepted onpage SEO but don't bother with backlinking anymore, the visitors I bring in via social media do my backlinking for me.

    Best way could be keep capturing emails while you shine on page 1 and then keep milking this email list on rainy days
