I have mainly only dealt with SEO and adsense for getting traffic to sites. But I'm working on something different and I haven't really thought of the ways to promote it to get general users.
Lets say for example that my new site is like a web 2.0 site, say blog or bookmarking site. How would you get the exposure like Twitter, Facebook, Weebly, Tumblr, etc.? I know, if it was common knowledge, then everyone would be making money and wouldn't be sharing it.
I'm basically asking if there is a different known tactic that is used outside of the SEO practice. Or may be someone has come across a guide or book detailing what worked for the big sites.
Anyways, if you got some input, it would be appreciated.
