    In my opinion, It is very important to understand your audience personas to acquire high quality traffic to your website.

    Indeed, SEO is one of the significant aspect for you while considering huge traffic.

    Now-a-days, Quora is playing crucial role to attract fresh traffic to you because it helps you to develop strong bond with your audience.

    People are streaming videos more than reading blog post and it is creative way to magnetize. But I like social platform due to massive population on those.

    Eventually, thanks for sharing your creative thoughts with us.
