The best thing is to get top position in google via your keywords. If you will do that you will get not only traffic but also real customers.

There is no single way to get traffic to you site.
SEO, SEM, Forum posting, Blog posting, article writing, etc to get traffic from different sources and then find the one that works most for you and concentrate on it while finding better ways to improve traffic from other sources

When you ask broad questions, you tend to get broad answers. Most useful and best way are perceived differently across the industry, so if you share what you're trying now or have tried, we may be able to offer some insight on how to improve traffic to your site.

Are you doing split testing? Sometimes using different colors or rephrasing of offers makes a world of difference, especially for increasing inbound traffic into conversions.

How is your site different from those visitors just left? Lots of providers have FB, Twitter and other social media icons on their sites, but how well they interact with prospects on those sites makes a huge difference.

Are you chasing prospects with promotions and sales, or are they chasing you because they know, like and trust you? What are doing now online to make that happen?

SEO is amazingly broad, something I offer only a few of my clients because of time to put in. Forum posts, back links, PPC ads, postcards, etc. etc. etc. It can be time consuming, and I am still hit and miss personally. I have been doing about 1 year and a half without training, I have two of my clients top 4 on Google, but two still second page. Those two have a lot of competition though.

No, don't go to for SEO as startups if you're in the hosting market. If you're in a niche, then I'd say it's still OK to do so. When you start SEOing very saturated key words, you have no guarantee when you'd get high quality back links. In fact, I'd say you have no chance at all. When you started to optimize Off page SEO then you'd notice google rank your websites based only on a web page with considerably High PR. If all of a sudden you get many backlinks, and those links actually sourced from spammy sites, blackmarked, or even those with lower PR than your sites, you will eventually get penalized.

Start to gain understanding of your customer, serve what they pay for. Promise what you advertise. When you turn one customer into your happy customer. This really happy customer will become your marketer. Research has shown that if and only if you even have one of these happy customers, they are 5 times more effective than a typical marketer. That's how you get Traffic in a saturated market. Of course, get some place that you can advertise freely first to make a customer happy.

Getting traffic and keeping traffic are two different things and it is a non-stop battle. Every day is a new chance to bring in more visitors and turning them into paying clients.

The best long term strategy is writing quality content and optimizing your site with your keywords so you rank highly in Google. For a quick jump in traffic, I would suggest using AdWords.

To get traffic during initial days you may use adwords. If you have a tight budget then you may try some traffic exchange for a short period of time while you do SEO on your site and also get some traffic using forums and guest posting and other means

Is the business local? Is it ecommerce? Restaurant? Hair salon? I mean it completely depends on business, but I agree word of mouth is #1 best way (not the easiest to get started with though)

Getting any trffic is ok I guess but you should focus more on getting "targeted" traffic, real sales leads not just traffic to make it look good in your stats program.
Marketing now is 100x more multi-faceted then it used to be, it requires alot more diversity and time.
I use dozens of methods under the idea of "marketing" including:
  1. Blogs - high quality not junk spun articles
  2. Video Sites - people love watching videos they rather not read
  3. YouTube, Facebook, Twitter marketing methods
  4. RSS Feeds
  5. Business Directories
  6. Paid advertising
just to name a few. I have hundreds of niche sites, affiliate type satellites being made also just for supplementary income and traffic from the backlinks.
Mkae sure have a decent mobile site built also as mobile is becoming bigger everyday. I sell GoMobi which is the cheaper solution but I would recommend dudamobile as it scrapes your actual website and basically does all the work for you.
Many other methods of course, some good some not worth bothering with but is way too many options to list them all.
Work out a small campaign and try it, things are constantly changing so what works best today may not produce results a month from now, you have to stay informed and adapt to the changes fast.

I've found that SEO is very helpful to get exposure for your site, but word of mouth is huge. Offer a great product and treat your customers very well, and they will spread word themselves. Social networking can be your best friend on this kind of thing. There's nothing I love more than to see our customers raving about our products on Facebook or twitter. Try to encourage them to do so. People pay attention to that kind of thing.
