Ways to promote website





lockwolf
what is a good way for me to promote my website and get lots of visitors?

Would stuff like link/banner exchanges work?
Maka
Best way is linking on another site like yours, whatever your site is about find a simular one of the same subject then ask to exchange banners/links. Also add your site to your forum sig.

Well the first step is to get some major content on your site, assuming that some people find you site, and you site has lots of content, your traffic will multiply. Then increase your link popularity, the best way to do this is by submitting to directories similar to your website. Then submit to a few minor search engines (not major ones like Yahoo or Google). DO NOT USE AUTOSUBMITTERS!!! Do all of these steps and, with luck, your site will be listed on major search engines and you will get traffic.

im not exactlly too sure on how these sites work but even though they are calle auto hitters it sounded like really people come to the site.

Those websites are really funny. BTW, the visitors you will get are bots for 95% and certainly NOT interested in your website. Wink

If you have a good website, take your time to advertise it and visitors will come.

I 've heard from a friend that the credits made from those auto surf sites can be use to advertise your site. How does it work?

Who are you trying to target? Promoting a website is just like advertising any other product. Think about what are the strengths of your product, who would use your product, etc...

Your question is too general.

firstly....dont go with any type of exchange wheather it is a traffic, banner, link or auto hits exchange. For the amount of time they take to produce traffic is incredible. And the traffic isnt targeted, in fact its basicaly useless. Why because who registers at a traffic exchange to see another website. No One. You want to target people who want to see your website. How? Well here is my advice.

1. Be patient - dont expect to receive thousands of unique visitors overnight. Building traffic takes even the best marketers a long time. In fact they will start building traffic upto 6 months before a site is even launched.

2. Go for Search Engines. Studies say that a huge 75% of traffic will comes from search engines. I dont know how accurate this is but many billions of people use search engines each day. Start by submitting your site to the top search engines. (Top four are Google, Yahoo, MSN and Ask Jeeves)

3. To compliment you Google and Yahoo submission submit your site to the dmoz directory (www.dmoz.org). This will help get your site listed quicker in Yahoo and Google.

4. Directories. Although they will not drastically improve your traffic they may improve your rankings in various search engines. How many directories should you submit your site to? Well, although this sounds like heaps try 100. it will take a while but its worth it.

5. Exchange Links. Browse the web and find sites related to yours. Contact the webmaster and 9/10 they will be happy to exchange a link! This will improve your search engine rankings.

6. PPC (Pay Per Click). Although this can be expensive PPC is targeted of and offers results. Of course the most popular PPC choice is Google Adwords. A site I came across while helping a client of mine recently offers $500 free PPC credit. Why? Because they are a brand new ppc search engine. I suggest you register with them because I tip them to go big in about a year if they dont go bust and you might as well register as they are free. Visit www.flishess.com

7. Im sick of typing. I would try and help you out more but my fingers are tired after a long day at work. I hope this has helped! Smile

ezyweb is right site whatever has cause for visiter to visit . put it , take it or create it. do propaganda by any means.

Try a CEO software to check your web site and see before hand what the Search Engines Spider will look for.
They will give you some information about how to improve your ranking before you make a request.

Some of the CEO are WebCEO http://www.webyield.net/webceo.html, you wil have a full flash animation explaining how to use it.
Use the Free Edition for your home website, it has enought features to work with, otherwise by the full version if you deal with a lot of site.

Another one is IBP 8, at www.Axandra.com, this is about the same type of software. you will have the same options, some are better in WebCEO rather than IBP, I usually use both depending what I'm looking for (ranking, image tag, keywords etc...)

Hope this will help

Use the QS Computing Ad Network to show your banner of your website:

I have used both IBP 8 and Web CEO but I personally prefer IBP. It just seems to be more efficient and powerful and also Web CEO has some major bugs which they are slowly improving.

try more misleading topics.

try adding unique, valuable content.

As stated before, links. Links, links, links. Use a lot of directories and take advantage of link exchanges. They help a lot. As far as that goes, also submit to search engines weekly. No, you will not get banned.

Im not sure if someone mentioned this already, and if they did i appologize, i didnt bother to read past about post #4.

To the starter of this thread. I would recommend getting an index page...once you make it call it index.html cuz right now its just a simple list made by im assuming an apache system and is just a list of whats on your site, its not really organized in any pleasantly viewable fashion.

What I did for a little advertising is pretty simple. I use yahoo groups a ton, and you can submit links to some of those groups. After my site was up and running I went to all of my groups that related to my website and I added my link to them. And for those ones that you can't add links to, I sent my link to the group owner and asked them to post it and they were more than happy to post my link.
