You've probably visited hundreds of web pages that all repeat the same 10 things to do to be on page one of Google and the 7 ways to get huge traffic to your website today. They all repeat the same mantras: Concentrate on SEO and keywords, start a blog or vlog, be active on social media, provide original content, find a niche market, become an expert in your field, make YouTube videos etc.
Barring using the "buy real traffic here" sites, these are all valid and important methods to garner more web traffic and should all be followed in order to see long term success. It's now a fulltime job to cover all these bases though.
The methods mentioned above require you to either be highly tech and web savvy to implement them properly, or you need to pay someone to develop and digitally market them for you, which for a small business is a large expense.
The bottom line is that if you are desperate for more web traffic today, you need to pay for it. Online advertising is expensive and highly variable in its results with no guarantees of success. Badly implemented campaigns may give a spike in traffic short term, but will harm your Google page rank and the page authority of your site in the long term.
Quality web traffic and not Bitcoin is the true digital gold, it's a very valuable commodity with highly competitive players in the space. The hit to your Google page rank will be hard if you employ the wrong marketing people and strategy, and can take a long time to recover if your methods trigger the cheating or fakeness sniffing code of the search algorithms. Hacking and gaming the system tactics are very risky today, you really do have to play according to Googles SEO and page ranking rulebook to succeed.
Like it or not Google controls +-90% of search traffic worldwide, with Bing at about 6% and the rest scrapping over the remaining crumbs. You can have a well-designed, mobile first and fast website with good SEO and original content, but without a well-researched and properly implemented targeted advertising strategy you are not going to get a decent ROI from your paid marketing efforts.

How has constant posting on social media worked out for you? Anything of lasting value takes time and effort, digital marketing is no different.
