Guest Posting: guest posting is a great way of getting a targeted traffic to your blog make sure you use blogs at least 70% relevant to your niche i found a good offer in Marketplace which sells list of blogs or you can build your own list in a separate blog entry i will post how you can generate a good list of blogs with specific criteria
Press Release: Press release is a powerful weapon to get targeted traffic and in my opinion this should have been placed higher even for lazy webmasters i suggest outsource but keep it up i am still getting traffic from the first submitted press release
Article submission: there are a thousand number of article zines and they help getting good traffic in my case 75% traffic from article directories got converted into sales
Long Tail keywords: i read some stories that long tail keywords don't help much not sure what algorithm they used to say that but in my Opinion Long tail keywords help 100% much than short keywords.
Directory Submission: one way links are Gold keep directory submission many webmasters get profile backlinks but i suggest that you put your profile creation budget into directory submission.
