That's true. Really good guides exist on Internet to teach SEO major rules. This is, indeed, one of the best way to increase traffic
Blog Commenting is also great way to increase traffic to your forum. It is very simple. You find blog posts, you read the articles, you then post a relevant comment to that article. The more relevant your comment is the more chances your link will be clicked.
Pay-Per-Click Campaigns. Almost all of the major search engines offer some sort of Pay-Per-Click marketing. This is a great way to get targeted traffic to your site.
Link Exchanges. Link Exchanges are a fantastic way to increase web traffic, and the benefits are two-fold. Not only do you get traffic from the linking website, you also get the added benefit of better search engine placement with every link that is pointing to your site.
Traffic Exchanges. Traffic exchanges offer a website owner an instant, free way to get traffic to his/her site. Traffic Exchanges come in all kinds of themes and forms.
