    Hi, here is how you can promote your website for free:
    1. Directory Listings - those services allow you to list your website at zero cost.
    2. Social Media
    3. Article marketing - write an article for your niche and publish it on a website such as Hub Pages or EzineArticles (make sure you include the link to your website in the article)
    4. Guest posting

    Hope this helps and good luck!

      Are directory listings and article directories still considered best practice for SEO? It was my understanding that these strategies really need to be done with caution as they can backfire easily.

    You have just started. At the beginning, you can use social networking sites to promote your blog.
    Join all the social networks, join different relevant groups&cummunities then share your posts time to time. It will be really helpful.
    Forum sites are also really helpful. Join forums and take part in the discussion. Add your signature.
    Join questions&answers sites. Ask questions and give answers, add your post link to your answer if it is relevant.
    Write top quality content, do keyword research before writing. Select low competitive keywords it will bring organic traffic.
    Guest posting is also really helpful to grow your business.
    Thanks, Munna Hossain, Mytechgoal.

      Should he join all social networks to share his own content OR its visitors who should be in the driver's seat to share his content in their respective social media accounts as they land his website/webpage from a reliable source of traffic like SEO, which one is the best marketing tactic?

        Hey, Anyb.
        You have pointed a perfect issue. I think it will be very disturbing for some people to join all the social networking sites. Joining is easy but you have to be an active member such as you have to share daily and more.
        You can join major social networks those have huge traffic such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Google Plus, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and more. These are enough for you. You can also join different relevant Facebook&LinkedIn groups and Google Plus communities, share your content in relevant groups and communities, it will be really helpful for promoting your blog and you.
        It is true that search engine traffic is really important but all the people can not rank in search engines so they have to apply other methods to reach the door of visitors.
        Thanks, Munna Hossain.

  • thanks to all those who replied, but I still have some questions:
    1) what is the easiest way to find bloggers, in my niche, who would like to guest blog with me. let's take my website which is about gaming news, then do I simply google search for " game news blog"? I doubt guest blogging with my website, that literally has less than 50 unique viewers per week, will be beneficial for the opposite party, would it? then is there any reason they will trade backlinks?

    2) i have tried SEO, the phrase " ECUPRD GAME Newsletter" , yet google would rather show NO RESULTS, then to show my website when i search that keyword. Wha am i doing wrong here?

    Look for expired domains in your niche with live backlinks that will also bring you traffic. Check to see if they have facebook, pinerest and other social backlinks.

    Then, when you find a few good domains - buy them and redirect them to your website.

    There are so many ways to promote you Website for FREE. Most of the suggestion above are excellent. But there are several important factors most people overlook when discussing using Free traffic sources.

    1. Free sources do not produce quick or high volume traffic.
    - the process of sharing, commenting and posting take time and there is only so much time in a day
    2. It will work for you if you take consistent daily action focusing on a few core strategies long term.
    3. Find high quality free gifts in your niche to give away. Nothing works better than free giveaways.
    4. The valuable asset you have to give is yourself. Just give people exactly what they want.

    About submitting to search engines... I am still not convinced about this !! I thought that if they crawl you ( via an article with your link or on a site ) they give you a higher bonus points for their ranking.

    Be VERY carefull about this !! Many search engines penalize you for this, they even could ban your site ! Why ? You give a link to their site and they one back ? Do you think it is objective? NO !
    I just a bit research on the net and nowadays it is better to avoid this OR "he/she puts a link to your site and you put from an OTHER site back to their site ( same niche of course )", but still often same IP addresses...

    About this... I heard search engines also penalize you, even ban you for this if the article comes for "spam article directories"... I heard a couple of months ago that you could only focus on a "few good" article directories....

    This is my 2 cents...

    Hey buddy,
    There are tons of black hat shortcuts for this but I don't recommend them at all. As won't be working tomorrow like today. Stick to the white hat steady plan.

    As a newbie, you can try blog commenting, forum posting on daily basis.

    By checking your post it's for sure you need to work on your English a bit (Mine is pathetic anyway).

    Tip - Use Grammarly chrome extension to chrome. It can handle you spell checker and grammar correction work easily.

    Once you are ok-ok with your English start working on guest posts, sponsored posts. This will give you great exposure + traffic.

    I hope this will help you.

    The easiest way to find relevant websites that will accept your guest posts is to search Google for "your niche" + "write for us". Then make a list of the results and get in touch with them with your article title suggestions. It's best to hold off on writing the articles until you find people who want them, then your aren't wasting your time.

    There are many ways through which you can promote your site, but before you even think that far, it is absolutely must that you have strong content. It will be useless to put time into things when the content itself is not good.

    Once you have strong content and base then you can go all out in promoting. For that, I suggest you to use social sites, as that's the best way as of now!

    As you want more traffics to your website, so you have to share your articles with your website reference in different social media platform like facebook, twitter etc.

    You can seek help from some reputed advertisement websites to promote your website. The one which I use personally for promoting my products and websites is page20. You can choose yours according to your requirement.

    Apart from advertising, you can also do on-page SEO for increasing organic traffic like write relevant and top quality content, use relevant and low competitive keyword, use a catchy title and so on. Earns backlinks from high Domain and Page Authority sites and also read your visitors reviews so that you can improve on the field where your website is lagging.
