It's true my friend. Getting free natural traffic is hard to do. I felt a lot like you just a couple of weeks ago, but stick in there. My link popularity is starting to go up litttle by little every day in google. I also recieve natural traffic of of on average of 50 unique visitors per day.
I have been doing this SEO since October, and it's still pretty tough. Read my Thread SEO Fatigue
. It's in the Marketing Zone section of this forum. This may help you out.
SEO is something that takes a lot of time and consistent work. Here is what I do every day.
1. Submit to at least 10 directories under my relevant category (PR 3 and Up).
2. Exchange links with at least 10 sites that are relevant to my site per day. Try to Automate this process it makes it much faster. I use Link Manager for my site automation and link exchanges, link metro and link market to find sites for other link exchanges.
3. Submit to 5 forums per day. Sign Up for about 10 to start with and alternate your responses every other day.
I am still working on article submissions, and plan on making this the next step in my SEO efforts. So far all this takes me around 2 hours a day to do, but it is starting to bring me in free traffic.
Be patient. This stuff seems to be working. If you want more immediate results however. Look into Pay Per Click and E-zines that are relevant to your web site. Opt-In traffic through my newsletters always converts better for me than just random traffic that comes in.
