    We'd need quite a bit more information to help; e.g. what's your marketing plan, what have you tried, what's your budget etc?

    There are literally tonnes of ways to get traffic (PPC, SEO, email, social, brand building, affiliate schemes, outreach, newspaper advertising etc.). What you want is targeted traffic that converts, for that the first steps are research to understand your customer and your market.

    To get traffic without spending money, use Facebook buy & sell groups & post your items with links. also start an instagram page & follow people who follow your rivals as they'll be interested in your products too.

    I think ads are the best way, there is google ads, FB ads...
    Anyway, you can add the marketing cost to your products or services.

    Google ad's can be a quick win, depending on how competitive your industry is, and the margin of your products. Then using the keywords your customer's search, start to build an organic strategy.

    Again, how quickly you can rise depends entirely on how saturated the market is.

    Prepare to put the work in for a long term gain. Short term would also be things like Facebook/Instragram ads. B2B might even find LinkedIn of use.

    Good luck :)

    There are various ways to increase traffic. Search a little bit digital marketing theme on the internet, eventually some good books, and you will learn a lot how to use its advantages best for your business. AdSense might be one of the many options, but you need to find the best approach

    Well I think I would need more information about what kind of products you sell to offer you some good advice. Depending on your product, there might definitely be some channels that might send some good referral visits. I once worked with a fashion eCommerce store for which I curated a list of around 8-10 free channels related to fashion where I used to promote their product and they used to refer a great deal of visits to their store. So, can you share your product's niche!

    Google ads can burn through a lot of money and not give results. You need a long term plan to invest in your websites SEO.

    Social, SEO or PPC seem like a good first point of call

    Probably also worth employing a good copywriter if you have the budget!

    If you want to get huge traffic on your website so you have two way to get it.
    1. Paid Method
    2. Organic Method
    If you want to get huge traffic on your website instant then you will have to run paid campaign on Facebook, and Google AdWords.

    Don't even know where to start on this. There are so many inaccuracies and errors in this post.

    There are loads of way to get huge traffic - depending on the product or service the two you mention may not even be in the list.

    Facebook Ads and Adwords may generate traffic but so suggest it will be huge is just wrong.

    If you had taken the time to look at their website you would understand why your suggestions are wrong.

    In any case, it not traffic you want. It's customers. The two are not the same thing.

    It is easier said than done. I recommend to try Google Shopping. You can study the demand of products, will correct price and to get real searchers queries.
    But you need to create product feed which must meet the Google Merchant Center requirements. Also you need to spend some money.

    So far none. Question was about traffic, not sales.
