    I have a folder of bookmarks to related niche sites and some high ranking forums that I try to participate in at least once a week. (or at least that is the plan) I believe in the principle that one learns and grows best by helping others. Over the years I have had the opportunity to "meet" new people and develop friendships, there is so much that you can learn outside the forums in one on one communications.

    Since I began my first website I have been rather adamant about paying one single dime on advertising or promotion. That has worked well with my Organic Gardening Blog, a purely informational site, now that I have moved into a new niche that is a commerce site, advertising is a necessary evil - so to speak. I do not have any real experience to draw on to help you there.

    Along the lines of directory submissions that you mentioned, here is something to consider if you haven't done so already.
    Install the Alexa toolbar on your browser. Start looking at the sites you visit. Alexa will give you the Top 100 links that any site has coming in (that participate with Alexa) you would be surprised at all the new opportunities this information will present to you. I'll let you take it from there.

    Get high PR pages linking back to your site, this is one of the most important aspects of SEO these days.

    Why? because google knows that anyone can get a crappy bookmarking link, whereas it's much harder to find and obtain links on relevant websites and pages, with a good PR

    Write guest posts, build a social media base, post content to, scribd, issu, YouTube, Vimeo, Ezine, Slideshare, Soundcloud, ITunes and link them all back to your inner pages. It's good to make content covering each post you write on your site as it will boost ranking instantly.

      Yes! Larry nailed it. Those inner pages are so often ignored.

    I operate several free hosting companies then promote my sites on the free hosted pages. Kinda a pain to run the hosting sites but the ability to jump a new site up within 6 weeks or so without much work is nice. The hosting isn't nearly as profitable as it once was but I keep it for the ability stated above.

    After you've been in the marketing world for awhile, you start to realize the true path to success is paid traffic, once you've mastered paid traffic you're golden, no more worrying about waking up one day and seeing all your google rankings gone, or all your youtube videos deleted, stories we always hear a lot of, paid traffic has always been and will always be around. Learning to turn a $1 into $2 is an addictive game.

      Jaro,

      Why don't you explain how a person should go about getting paid traffic like you did. Because not all traffic works etc.
      Thanks

    I mostly use social networks for marketing and visitors for my website and for link building purposes I rely on social bookmarks, some business directory submission and classified ads submission. I was focussing directory submission as well but after spending even extra time I haven't got any good response, no backlink from any directory website so I decided to exclude directory submission.

    A big no for reciprocal links, the sites used this link building methods were washed our during last panda/penguin updates.

    I would say, as first step you have to find the long tail keywords and work towards on it and for link building you have to spread your time with contextual links like blogging, article marketing and etc, along side directory submissions, social bookmarks and other white hat methods... make sure you always vary anchor text....

    You should
    - create new and original content
    - update content frequently.
    - add content even if your site only sells products
    - format the content
    You must be available all these for your site.

      First what I do is take care of on page optimization and when all this is done I ping my site to 2 directories:
      1. pingomatic
      2. pingoat

      After that I leave my site, don't do anything for 2-3 days. Next what I do is social bookmark with camouflage to sites relevant to my niche.
      I do it slowly, not more than 5-10 bookmarks per day and in the same time I do Facebook fan page including iframe app linking to my main website and do promotion on twitter.
      Also I visit forums and start discussion about topic and niche I promote.
      There are many ways to promote it just need to be patience and don't speed up process in order not to get banned or sandboxed!

    For me, EMAIL MARKETING is still one great way to promote your site. Because customers are hard to convince at times, you need to engage them multiple times before they buy your product. Sending newsletters and email updates for those who visited your site is still one of the strongest ways to engage potential and existing customers. After all, there is a reason why they came across your website, so make the moves by sending them great contents about your product on a regular basis, show them what they have missed since they last visited your site. Update them about your new products or if you have a great deal to offer. You can easily convince your customers to buy your products if they learn that you are giving away some freebies or discounts.

    Everyone on here is giving you lots of great tips, that's the whole point, no one thing works most of the time, unless maybe you nail paid ads. Until then do all the on site and off site SEO you can, so yeah, make a list of everything everyone in the thread suggested and go through it one at a time and soon you will see results!

      I use multiple method of promotions.
      Depends on the subject site....
      SEO is my favorite, most importantly - always be aware of any changes in the algorithms of search engines and you can get the maximum effect. Or independently spend experiments on my own websites or buy the results of experiments, here AlgoDiscovery. Paid SEO Researches. for example you can do it.
      But for some sites I use also Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Youtube, in certain subjects, it also gives a good effect.

    yeah this is a massive topic in of itself, but really dude if you just post cool content on your site and make good videos on youtube with links back to your site, that will give you a ton of traffic. It's really no mystery or secret on getting a lot of people to a site that has killer content. Too many times though everyone wants to buy a bunch of backlinks or hire dudes from fivver to spam their spun content and hope that this works. It doesn't and google knows all about it. So just play by the rules and write and create good stuff that people actually want to read. Easy huh?
