2) Exchange or Trade Links with other sites

Exchange links with other sites to enhance your web traffic. Both of you will benefit from your combined efforts of driving more traffic to both your sites.

Try to partner up with sites along the same or similar niche that you are in. This adds to your site's reputation. Commenting on forums and other blogs also helps in this regard.

3) Use Viral Marketing

Viral marketing allows you to spread the word about your company and product with little or no costs. This is a marketing method that can be quite sneaky; you can attach your company’s name, product or link to a certain media such as a funny video, entertaining game, an interesting article or a gossip or buzz. With this method, people get infected with the creativity and entertainment of the medium that they will pass it on to many people.

4) Search and use proper keywords or keyword phrases for your site contents

Search engines look for certain keywords that they would show in their results page. In doing so, having the right keyword and keyword phrase is a must for your site to rank high in searches. You could write your own content or you could hire someone to do it for you. I would suggest you learn the basics and do it yourself. It's not that hard.

5) Write Articles that can lead traffic to your site

Submit articles to sites that would contain the same subject that your site deals in. If you sell car parts write press releases and articles about cars and car parts. Attach your site's description and services at the end of the article as well as the link to it.

6) Join forums and form online communities

Capture a market and show your expertise and credibility. When you form a good foundation for your site, people will trust you and your site and will pass the information on to many people they trust. Traffic will certainly increase because they know that you can provide what they need.

7) Lastly, Offer newsletters.

If many people know what you are about and your existence is shared with many others, you will find a loyal traffic that can provide you with more traffic through recommendation. If you arouse the curiosity of your customers they would be motivated to help you with your traffic.
