    There are two types of traffic. Free and paid traffic. if you want instant and fast traffic targeting the right keyword, then paid traffic is the way to go.

    If you are going to spend time, effort and hard work so traffic can come slow then free traffic is the way and we all love The word FREE.

    The best traffic source is the traffic that comes from search engine, which is google. People type a keyword targeting a product or an offer so if your websites comes in the first positions then you are lucky.
    Also, a good headline always attracts reader’s interest. So your headline must be catchy and not too long.

    Social channel plays an important role. Social sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, Instagram are very helpful for traffic.

    Discussion sites like TrustOrRun, Nairaland, Facebook Groups etc. are also great platforms for driving huge traffic.



    In addition to what you have already been told, write genuine and detailed articles.

    The greatness of your Content will decide whether a visitor will return to your site or not.

    Good content is also good for SEO. When search engines discover that people are revisiting your post, they tend to rank your pages higher.

    Another alternative is guest blogging. A lot of bloggers have been using the guest blogging technique for a very long time. Guest blogging increase backlinks and may drive direct traffic to your site.

    Good luck.
