Great! Thank you for your sharing.

Coming up with 101 of these pretty tough. But definitely some fine ideas in here as well.

wow, 101ways ,which ones will work fo my site
er,,,,,,,,,,,,yes, i don't think all og these will work for my site though it acclaim to "any sebsite"

Great...!!! Really some helpful way that you have mentioned here.
Honestly i learned something from this posting.

thanks for sharing such valuable information with us.

A lot of these methods are specific to blogs.

20. Use pictures. Most of the top trafficed blogs use pictures in their posts.

You can use alt-tags when describing images..

I think Google is the most important things to generate traffics...

Great list there. And three things one has to concentrate to gain traffic through search engine optimization. First is relevant and quality content on a particular keyword usually related to the product/services. Second is link building, link exchange and reciprocal linking so more sites will be pointing to your site as reference. Last one is social media participation so people who have an account on these social media sites will get to know your site.

Great information! Thanks for the details.

there are great list, but the practical experience are more beneficial.

and I guess we could just Do lots of quality works and Be consistent on what we are doing.

Thanks for taking time to post such a long list. Each point you mentioned here is valuable and effective if done properly.

A quick way to make high quality relevant links, especially if your domain name is not a good keyword...Buy some domains that are your best keywords. Make each one a simple one-page website, and make links to your original website, to the exact pages, not just your index.html page. An alternative is to just keep those new domain names, not make websites out of them, but just re-direct them to your original website. The first method works because you are making high quality relevant links to your website. The second method works, because I have experienced it to work over the last 5 years.

Article submission is a very powerful tool for search engine optimization. You can write quality articles on topic with your web site and create an resource box that mentions your site and links back to it with relevant anchor text. Then submit them to article directories like EzineArticles and GoArticles.

WOW!! Very nice, espacially I like 32-th one :)) hah, I think I'm out of ideas for tip #101, but essentially you have made a good points, thank you for sharing.

I wonder how average webmaster can complete that 101 average,for me,my driving traffic strategy is simply using adwords,make 10 quality score and do little keywords research and traffic tracking, only that what I do and It take less then 2 hours in a day to do that
