    Hey Anand!! u r absolutely right..Twitter brings me traffic on a regular basis..But these sites are one time traffic generators!!u got me? The traffic from these sites will last upto 1 week or so maximum..So i didnt include Twitter in this list…

    in my experience you need alot of friends to make it work to its full potential. Although a keyword with little competition can rank well with just the submission alone and no votes. Especially on propeller and mixx
