    Your top traffic sources?

    Just wondering what everyone's top traffic sources are..

    Here's mine..

    Google
    Obviously organic searches make up the majority for most blogs.. but it does take time.

    RSS
    The day I started using RSS I saw a HUGE increase of traffic.. it took my site to the next level.

    Guest Blogging
    A couple of really hot articles on a couple of high traffic sites have almost driven my server to meltdown. Fantastic.

    Social Media
    Stumbleupon brings in a really nice slice of traffic each month, Twitter and Facebook are also pretty good.

    What about you guys?

    Google sends me quite a good amount of traffic for me.

    Other Search engines contribute a ton for me. My posts have been posted around by people in several forums and yahoo answers(no I did not pay for that).

    Of course, it has to be Google. Google represents over 80% of my Web site traffic for electronics. The only way you can successfully drive as much traffic to your website is by submitting 100's of articles on a monthly basis with keyword anchor text, adding your URL to web directories, including your URL in the Yahoo directory, posting comments on blogs and leaving your URL and the list goes on. Each week you should do only one (1) thing. One week, submit articles, the next week, find more directories to submit to, ect., ect., ect. And then it starts all over. There's only so many hours in a day to complete as much as you can. So, if you're serious about making money regardless of what type of website you own, consider cutting back on your social life. After you do this for a few years, you should be able to quite your day job and be your own boss. It's called sacrifice...

    I'm curious, as to how you implemented RSS into your site, and how it increases your traffic. Are you using RSS feeds from other poeple's content, news feeds, or...???

    Most of my traffic comes from search engines, but it's a mix of good visitors, surfers, and spammers.

    Second most is from referring sites, my targeted visitors come from most of these, although there is some spam in there, especially from site like this one where everyone is trying to get a leg up by dropping links like a B52.

    The rest of the traffic is direct traffic, they have a bookmark they use to go to my site. This one competes with referring sites.

    I get 80%-90% of my website traffic from StumbleUpon. The other day 20/20 on the Sitemeter list were from Stumblers.

    Popular websites with great related content linking back to our website generated an exceptional amount of traffic for us.
    All the others work great too though.

    StumbleUpon? I signed up a long time ago, but never knew how to use their service to drive traffic to DrewryNewsNetwork. In fact, the current traffic rank DNN is at now has been al by means of social networking and forums. No videos, automated tools "except Onlywire" or bots. Just good ol' manual hard work

    My top sources are:
    Google
    Wikipedia
    Bing
    Stumbleupon
    ...and a myriad of other sites all sending between 1 and 10 people a week or month each.
    I have lots of articles on ezinearticles but get negligible traffic from it. My Reddit, Digg and Delicious traffic is very low, despite every page on my sites being bookmarked. I find Stumbleupon traffic of spectacularly low quality in terms of CTR etc.
    My best quality traffic comes from Google, Wikipedia and one particular referring site that I haven't named.

    How are you driving traffic from wikipedia? Do you have a listing there? I thought that was only for corporations, or famous people
