Considering that SEO is so expensive with hiring people, would anyone consider it still better than things like PPC (pay-per-click)? Anyway, though, one idea is you can SEO your site and then it will just pull in money naturally without putting more money into it. However, though, some SEO companies need money to keep the SEO running. In other words, there is no end to the payments. However, I could be wrong. Perhaps that's not the norm.

There is no alternative to SEO as this is the best method to drive organic traffic to your site. However, ranking a site with SEO is getting difficult day by day. The competition is very tough. The second best option is social media optimization. Social Media can also be a great way to build referral traffic. If both of these options do not work, you can try search engine marketing. You can do PPC campaign on search engines.

Organic traffic is more preferable to me in the sense that it can run on autopilot, if someone do write thing. All you need is the up front effort you need to out into it. Onces you have your sites rank on top three spots for the targeted keywords, free organic traffic will continue to flow to your websites as long as it stays at top spots. Paids ads will stop when you run out of your budget.

SEO that's Organic traffic is widely considered the most valuable traffic source for several reasons:

Google directs the highest amount of traffic and they are the most trusted source for people researching a purchase.

Google is very, very particular about their rankings and ranking in the top five results for a keyword indicates that your content is high quality.

Moving up in the rankings is difficult and takes time, but once you're there you get to reap the benefits for a long time.

Yeah, you said immensely about advertising a website to generate stable (static) traffic that never drops down to nothing. I think in this area SEO remains the number in bringing one such kind of traffic that is static and stable. If one think he lacks the finance to acquire SEO tools that will enable his or her site to rank higher on search engines. Then he or she should utilize social media marketing to advertise his website and gather lots of audience there too.

Social media marketing works only when you do paid marketing, or when you have a large following. Do not expect to get good traffic if you have just about 1 or 2 K followers. You should be thinking about at least 20K. If that's not happening to you, you can try paid advertising. This is a good option as long as you are selling products. If your main revenue source is ads, paid social media marketing might put you at loss.

That's true, for one to drive in good traffic to his or her website that deals on product sales, he needs to boost large number of followers via social media. In order to actualize his or her aim of generating adequate traffic to the site. But in the sense that he's earning solely on ads, then the person needs paid advertising network to help send unsolicited traffic to his website for fast clicks that can generate money. But some Adsense doesn't take lightly of that act of sending unsolicited clicks. They banned that user, if continuously found operating on such way.

When you hire someone to do seo, it is one time payment. However, the stratwgies implemented will work until you add substantial amount of new content. However, if you are using ppc campaign to promote your site for traffic and revenue, you will earn traffic and revenue until you run your campaign. Once campaign ends, there will bw zero traffic and revenue.

Pay per click with google adwords depending on how much you invested can pay off a lot but advertising on other means especially if you are partnering with someone can sometimes help more because it gets word of mouth out and word of mouth are how sites become successful.

Search Engine optimization is far more better than any form of marketing like pay per click. Why I said that is because any time you market your products and services with pay per click your marketing will end immediately your money ends with the platform but search engine optimization is a long term form of marketing.

If you think hiring someone to do SEO work is expensive then you can do the SEO work by yourself. Write a good content with no copied parts from other website. Upload it with keywords that are relevant to the niche and directly related to the new content. That is already SEO work which will surely bring you traffic from the search engines. Another way of getting traffic is by promoting your new content in social media particularly Facebook and Twitter.

Even though there are a lot of methods to drive traffic to your site SEO stands as the best method because it not only drives organic traffic that converts well but also reduces your marketing cost. If we want to stay in the business for long, we should learn SEO. There are a lot of free as well as paid courses available.

When SEO works on your site, your site will earn traffic without you having to work every day. However, this does not happen to a lot of website owners, therefore they use digital marketing. You can do digital marketing to gain traffic.

That's true, having SEO running in the website helps earn income to the site. Cos the website owner's contents will be listed on search engines and any click guests makes on each of those contents will drive dome commissions if they continuously visits, means more commissions.

You need SEO to receive organic traffic. Organic traffic means people are visiting your site from search engines. However, for many people this is simply not possible due to the high competition. So, social media becomes the only solution to drive traffic

Search engine optimisation is one of the coolest way to get organic traffic to your website and the second way is actually social network promotion of your website.

If you don't do SEO marketing, the other alternative should be from social medias, forums, and word for mouth. If you tell your friends or well wishers about your creation, they can find favour to engage in your site and improve your site traffic.
