I guess if you site is really useful, you won't need to do any trick to invite users or make them loyal to your site.

You need to give them something. Perhaps you can have a newsletter. Provided it is something that has information that your members will find useful. Then have it available on a regular basis. If you have registered members, you can offer it to them as a service, with the option that they can de-register at any time. So as not to irritate them and loose them as a consequence. Then in the Newsletter you can make references to your Website, so that they have easy access, and this will prompt them back to the Website again and again.

You can also encourage feedback, with an online feedback form.

Basically, you need to make your presence known. Get out there and advertise. Use Stumbleupon, digg, whatever! They're all free sources of excellent quality traffic.

In addition, post on forums (such as in this Advertise Your Website board), and also try to make your content viral -- i.e. people will wish to share it with each other.

There are also other methods for making viral content. Hotmail.com email addresses are one; they made a good service, it works, and they get free advertising from people just using their service.

Another example of viral advertising is signatures. Try dynamic signatures for links, whatever. If a person plays WoW, a lot of the time they'll like to show off their character in their signature pictures so that people can see what progress they're making and how good they're doing. If you could apply this idea to your site, possibly combined with a referral system, you could increase your traffic exponentially.

Hogwarts pretty much said it right on.

Going to like computer game forums and other forums like that would be good. Make yourself well known around those other websites, and give people your link and just try to get them to register and stay on there. Word will usually spread on it's own if you have a good enough game.

Just get to advertising and making yourself known to get some more people visiting your website. If they like what you have to offer, they will return.

Good luck!

*agrees*

All of the above too. Get yourself known. Offer incentives for invites/referrals to your users too!

Make your content good enough for people to want to come back to find out more.

Well, what i do to promote my site and get people to keep coming back is put interesting thing/events going around my town. I use offline marketing so know everyone that comes to the site. This is an easy way to make your site's traffic go up.
Hope this answered your question.
Xaferrow

Additional tips:

join a traffic exchange, could be really usefull. Very Happy it works on me

Provide the user with up-to-date information that involves the certain topic that you are trying to supply for others. Also a very useful tool to have users continue to come back and have more visit your website is to provide resources. Even better is free resources. A user will look forward to something that may help them with a task and possibly make that task easier then it may have been before visiting your site. This will in turn make some users book mark your website to return to your website to see if you have updated the information with more. If you however do not update regularly you will not have many users come to your site and after a while it will end up dying off.

Social bookmarking can be great, but the best and most sustainable traffic is through the search engines. You need to build backlinks and practice good SEO techniques in order to rank for good keywords, but in the end it pays off with consistent and relevant traffic.

I would stay away from the click/traffic exchanges because those are really just useless hits since everyone on there is just trying to build credits for their website instead of actually caring about they sites they are surfing.

Hi,

To increase the performance of your site and to increase the visibility, you can use the website traffic providers. There are lots of in the market and lots of them are fake.

You need to search the web site traffic providers which can increase your ranking in Alexa and google ranking.

One traffic provider is TrafficApple.com. I think this is the cheapest in the market and it is more reliable as well.

You can also try promotional code 5030 and they will give you 50% discount.

You can get 10000 hits in $6.99. The code will not work for that but you can get 30,000 hits for just $7.49 using promotional code 5030.

It is much like Free hits.

Hope it will help you to increase your business.

Thanks
Nick
