    One of the new ways to drive traffic is via video marketing. You could start a YouTube channel up and drive traffic making videos related to what your websites are about. Facebook, twitter, and instagram are also place you can build a following for constant traffic. Also you can try article marketing, along with guest blogging. This is where you go offer to write an article for a person on their website then ask for a link to your website in return.

    I am agree with some point, But these are traditional approach. Can you brief us about out of box approach for the getting huge traffic. It will take too much time to get real and targeted traffic.

    Initially you can drive from SMO but you need to create links for your website.

    I loaded a killer strategy into the marketplace for driving high-volume traffic (nearly 60,000 unique new visitors in the first 3 days), but it's only for eCommerce sites or sites selling a product or book so I don't think that would apply to you. If you're trying to promote a forum, you actually have two problems - you need traffic and engagement.

    Forums are one of the most difficult sites to start... to get traffic you need engaging topics, and to get engaging topics you need traffic. Nobody wants to bother registering on a forum where they won't be heard.

    I've had an idea on how to overcome this, but I've never tested it. The idea is you find a handful of news sites with stories in your niche and lots of comments, and use that to seed a new forum. Write a script that fetches the title and a short blurb from RSS, with a link back to the original post, then automate creating some 'dummy' accounts based on the comments. You could script it out so the post title becomes the thread title, and the comments are replies to the original thread.

    In theory, that would give your forum the illusion of activity, which would encourage real humans to join the conversation.

    For promoting a forum, other related forums would help you a lot, try to participate in related and high traffic forums on regular basis. At the same time, develop content in your forum, this way you would get some visitors from search engines driving from long tail keywords from your forum content..

    You can also get a lot of traffic using social media, we use tweetadder to automate our twitter account and after a few weeks we reached the 2.000 followers mark and we get a substantial part of our website visitors via twitter.

    - Make sure you post your rss feed to twitter using serrvices like tweetfeed
    - Automate your following/unfollow process using tweetadder
    - Also manually check up on your twitter account

    Within a month you will have more visitors !

    Not sure what was the point to start another "How do I get traffic topic" - there are tons of guides and existing threads you can use even to promote a forum.

    Here's are some threads here and on BHW:

    1. http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/other-ppc-networks/518193-wher-can-i-buy-good-traffic.html

    2. http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-what-best-still-simple-tool-get-traffic.html

    Short guide is right here:
    Ok, because this post is quite generic, let me try to expand it:

    Facebook:
    Let's take an easy example.
    You are trying to promote a blog with some funny videos.

    Quick way:
    1. Start a group page on the Facebook
    2. Search for other groups with the content similar to yours.
    3. Send them a message that you want to promote your page on their wall
    4. Pay them couple bucks per link they share.
    In ideal, they have to share link to your album - sharing regular links in the form of thumbnails is not very effective due to the small size of thumbnails.
    5. Make sure you track your links (through bit.ly for example) so you know exactly how many clicks, when, and content gives you.
    (Maybe I'm a bit paranoid but I always like to use third-party tracking)
    6. Having the information on what people like more, when they are online, and where are they from, you can now adjust your group to their interests.

    Long way:
    1. Start a group on the Facebook
    2. Search for other groups with the content similar to yours.
    3. Like them.
    4. Kindly ask them to cross-promote.
    5. Find community pages
    6. Spend some time finding who owns posting privileges there (sometimes it's not that easy)
    7. Kindly ask them to post your uber-funny picture on their wall.
    8. Repeat steps 2-7 until you have couple hundred thousands likes.

    Twitter:
    1. Get Hootsuite [​IMG] to monitor multiple conversations otherwise you'll be in the world of pain in no time.
    Also, I've heard TweetDeck is another option for this.
    2. Find people who post similar content and follow them.
    3. Use Hootsuite or TweetDeck to monitor who's discussing/sharing this content - they are your potential readers.
    4. Engage them in the conversation, share you awesome content with them, and odds are they will check out your blog.

    Guess Socialboost was talking about Google+
    Similar steps.

    1. Look for groups and hangouts that have relevant content.
    2. Join them
    3. Add their members to your circle
    4. Engage them in the conversation on what they like/dislike.
    Ask them to share some content.
    5. Return the "favor" and share couple links to your blogs on peoples' and groups' pages.

    And for the love of God, don't just post bs like "Oh, use Social Media! Good Luck!"
