Website traffic generation is a system.
It has inputs and outputs.
The inputs are time or money.
The output is revenue.
For you, the big question is: which specific traffic generation methods should you use?
One way to answer that question is to do an 80/20 traffic generation analysis to answer the following questions:
1. Which 20% of traffic building methods will generate the most traffic the fastest?
2. Which 20% of the 20% of traffic generation methods will produce the most traffic in the shortest period of time?
The answers will vary across industries and niches, so there isn’t a single ‘silver bullet’ answer I can give you.
One thing is for sure – all traffic generation methods that are worth doing will cost large amounts of time and/or money.
Some methods work better or faster than others. Some techniques are more sustainable over the long term than others and will pay bigger dividends on your initial investment of time or money.
If you don’t love doing the tactical execution required to generate traffic you should have deep pockets to pay a team of other people to do the work for you 24/7/365.
I go into plenty of detail about specific 80/20 traffic generation methods in other posts on this blog, so have a look in the archives, categories and popular posts to find the information that’s most interesting, relevant and valuable for you.

I personally searched for this topic because I wanted to find out if other people had thought about traffic generation from a systems-thinking perspective.
Surprisingly, no one has… despite the presence of 2.14 billion web sites for every imaginable niche, industry and interest.
There are still topics no one has covered yet on the Internet.
It amazes me.

Here’s the thing.
