SEO & Social Media Marketing: Who Sends Me The Most Traffic?
I relaunched HowToWebmaster.com only about 2 and a half weeks ago. I’ve done a lot of things to bring in traffic to this site such as SEO, forum marketing, social media marketing, and email marketing.
Here are the top 9 sources that sends me the most traffic. I will exclude direct visits and email marketing.
For a new site, obviously google isn’t going to send me much traffic right away. Webmastergiveaways.com is one of my sites that links to this site, so I’m not going to give this much weight. Forum marketing has proven to be a very good way to get traffic with forums like: warriorforum (#1 referral traffic) and digitalpoint. Reddit is also pretty good but they are not too kind towards internet marketing links. Kingged.com is not bad, it’s like reddit but for internet marketing links.
For a new internet marketing site, social media marketing doesn’t really work too well. I’ve tried pinterest, twitter, and facebook. Starting from scratch with zero fans and followers just isn’t gonna bring in fast traffic organically. With other types of sites like: funny image and video sites. I’ve literally received thousands of visitors overnight by using social media.
So there you have it. A quick and effective way to get traffic to your internet marketing site is by forum marketing. It’s really two birds with one stone, you build backlinks and gain traffic at the same time. See my list of the top 5 webmaster forums.
What is forum marketing?
Participate in discussions and make posts at forums, start new threads, use signature links, use an avatar with your logo.

Its impressive seeing how your site is faring with forum marketing traffic.
From the analysis of traffic report, its still consolidating to know that engagement through blogging communities and social bookmarking sites are powerful traffic sources.
Details from Kingged.com, Reddit, Warriors forum, etc have shown how important referral traffic from these sources could be!
I have shared this comment in kingged.com where this this post was found and “kingged” for its value to Internet marketers.

Kingged.com has been a massive driver for me, for months, Leon. Super helpful breakdown; I am generating ideas as I write.
Glad to know that despite the site being new, you are getting good traffic! Now that’s what I call the power of referral traffic!
With this article, you’ve just increased my curiosity regarding forum marketing! I mean, I’ve been doing promotion of my blog on forums and all, but never got such impressive stats. Now that I’ve seen such impressive figures, I hope I too can go on and achieve similar traffic from them 🙂
And Kingged.com is also working fine for me 🙂 I arrived at this post via kingged only!
Forum marketing is a great way to get traffic. When I type a question in google many times forum posts do come up. So, I know it is a great way to get traffic. I have also been getting traffic from Kinnged as well. Thanks for sharing this with us!
Thanks for posting this useful info. It is geving me some good suggestions such as kingged.com. I would like to get more traffic from the warrior forum but they will not allow me to use my blog in my signature because there are some affiliate links on my sites. Any suggestion on other popular internet marketing forums?
Thanks – David
Warriorforum and digitalpoint are the top 2. There’s also v7n, wjunction, namepros, dnforum, and many others. If you are active at any of these, I’m sure it can bring loads of traffic.
I’m not sure why WF don’t allow your blog link in the signature. That is pretty odd. Having affiliate links on a site is normal, as long as you don’t put affiliates directly in the signature, I guess.
Thanks for providing names of some other forums. As for WF yes I am puzzled as well as I regularly see that people will have affiliate links on their sites but I was told just recently that I could not have my sites in my signature becasue of that. No explanation. ??? I have been a memeber there for a few years.
Good to see your traffic is great. Warrior forum is the star! Joining a forum isn’t just making friends, if you will participate and be active, your traffic will boost since it will always help Internet Marketers.
I found this post shared on Kingged.com, the Internet marketing social networking site, and I “kingged” it and left this comment.
It’s really surprising for me that despite of the Blog being new (only 2 and half week), you are getting awesome traffic. I have also joined Warrior forum but I am not much active there but after seeing this stat i am planning to spend my few time there also.
Currently kingged.com is providing me good traffic. This post shows the power of referral traffic. Thanks for sharing this great post.
I got this post on kingged.com and become forced to read complete post. I really enjoyed this post. 🙂
Hi Leon, thanks for promoting my Unreal Seo Secrets 2014 guide! Good results on your new blog and hope you keep it active. I’ll like to add an additional method which is to spy on your competitors. Different niches will have different referral sources and sometimes you can’t find them all yourself. However, by spying on what your competitors are doing you can quickly develop a marketing strategy that’s already proven to work. Hope that helps.
Awesome SPY tips Doug, thank you!
