Try to search yourself, from where you can connect to different people and how you make them to share your links to their friends.

Well I have found an interesting thing which is not mostly popular but growing up rapidly. It is called up "Social Browsing". I found this very interesting in a lot of traffic generation. So also have a look upon it.

Yah, twitter is a great social networking site for pushing up website rankings. It has a Page Rank of 9 which is excellent for building sales.

traffic can be increased by getting more backlinks to your site. you can even buy backlinks.

Best way is offer them rewards.

Yes, using free traffic methods, you can expose your website or product by millions of people. There are several ways of getting free traffic to your very own website. You can follow below methods:
1. Content And Distribution: Submit articles to sites like eZines which will use and distribute your article.
2. SEO Traffic: Search engine optimization is probably the most popular and best way to get consistent targeted traffic to your website.
3. Online Communities: Community websites are great as a free traffic source. You can post forums, blogs etc..
4. Craigslist: With Craiglist, you can post up ads for free. Google loves Craigslist and your ads can be indexed within about twenty-four hours.

Update your About Page. One of the first things visitors to your site will want to know is something about who you are. If you don’t update your About page to include a short bio, and they find a generic page instead, they’ll be disappointed. But if you briefly explain (two paragraphs is plenty) what the blog is about, and who you are, they’ll be more likely to come back.
Turn on Publicize. You can easily set up your blog to automatically share new posts out to your Twitter, Facebook, Yahoo or LinkedIn accounts. This increases your reach every time you publish a post.
Turn on Sharing. With a few clicks, you can make it so any visitor can share a link to your post out to their social networks, their blog, or through email.
Let readers subscribe by email. Email is often forgotten as a source of traffic. If you turn on the Subscriptions widget, people can choose to get notified of new posts on your blog, automatically, via email. It’s a great way to keep them connected to your blog without any extra work for you, or for them.
Post regularly. Pick a schedule that works for you – once a day, once a week, once every two weeks, and stick to it. Mention that frequency in your About page, and put reminders on your personal calendar. It’s only when people can expect regular posts that they’ll be compelled to come back to see what you’ve written next. If you need ideas for posts, read and subscribe to DailyPost, where we give topic ideas and blogging advice every day. You can also use PressThis to quickly generate new posts while you are browsing the web.
Write Well. It’s often unsaid, but better posts get more traffic. There’s no sense in posting every day, if every post is boring or poorly written. It takes time to develop interesting ideas, and to edit posts to be concise and typo free. If people find a careless writer at work, they won’t be back. What good is more traffic if the content they see isn’t good enough for them to choose to return?
Pick good titles. Blog post titles are like newspaper headlines. They need to be short and interesting to get people to want to see what’s inside. It takes some thinking to get a title down to a short sentence, but it’s time well spent. On Facebook and Twitter, all people will often see is the title and your link.
Link to bloggers like you. When you link to another blog, they’ll typically get notified (via a pingback) that someone has mentioned them. This will encourage them to visit your blog and, if they like what they find, link to you as well in their posts. But do it sparingly; too many links and we call it SPAM. If you find a post you like, excerpt a paragraph and link to the rest. Also check out Freshly Pressed and our Global Tags to find blogs with similar interests, and subscribe to their blog. You can use tags in your own posts so your work will surface there as well.
Comment on other blogs like yours. Every comment is an opportunity to show how well you write and think. When people read a great comment, they’ll see your name, and the link to your blog, encouraging them to see what else you have to say. Identify good blogs on topics similar to your own, read and contribute sincerely.
Respond to every comment you get. When people comment on your blog, they’ve invested a lot of their time. Reward them by answering questions and taking their feedback, and they’ll come back again.
Take requests. Write a post requesting your readers (or your friends) to suggest topics to write about. Reach out to Facebook, twitter, or friends, for suggestions. Then let them know you’ve written about what they asked for. It’s a great way to make sure everything you write will have at least one reader.
Pay for traffic. Web applications like StumbleUpon can bring visitors to your posts with rates starting at $.05 per visit. If you’ve just published a great post and you really want some feedback from visitors, this can be a good way to get started. Companies looking for broader distribution, including getting content seen by journalists, should try services like PR Newswire.

If you want to get traffic then you should go on social media facebook, twitter, stumble upon, linkeding etc, these sites are very important to get good traffic.

ya to get more traffic or to get more number of visits then go for social networking sites like facebook, twitter etc.

Build unique content and do social bookmarking and guest posting..

i suggest you budget on using google adwords...quite demanding but would pay off on the long run

Depending on your budget:
- Search in social media
- Ads on google
- Ads on recruitment &/or business directories
The engagement is the key of strength, spread awareness on the forum regarding your offering!

You can use Facebook fan page to attract users or you can also participate in other forums.

I think the best to get more traffic is advertise your forum on well-known websides like goole ,facebook,twitter.and you can make some interesting threads.

if you want a good traffic then you should use social media and always try to spent more on more time on facebook, twitter, linkedin, myspace, and other famous social media sites, you should create you business and fan pages on these sites and then start to promote it, hopefully you will get good results.

As per my views Social networking is the best way to get traffic. Use Facebook, Stumbleupon, twitter and Digg like best social networking sites where mostly you will get heavy traffic. Also youtube is good for getting traffic. So just try to drive traffic from there to your site.

The best way is patience and lots of well written posts. Dont lose heart. Keep going and the traffic will come.

As per my knowledge social bookmarking and socila media marketing and article submission will hlep you get more traffic, like twitter and facebook and myspace and articles sites like ezine, go articles....

You could also try to link this to your social media. Try facebook. By "liking" your site on facebook, you will market this to an entire social platform. good luck.
