What is your site about? Does it address a specific topic, or is it merely a personal perspective on things that you like (blog, pics, etc)?

If it has a motif or overall theme, you can promote it by talking about it on other sites that cater to the same or similar themes. You can include the url in your various profiles and signatures. There are a myriad of ways in which website traffic can be increased. Having content that people find desirable or controversial usually works (anyone remember when maddox was just a guy getting like 20 hits a month - now look at his site traffic).

Point well taken. My website is http://www.htmltrix.com

It's basically free tools for webmasters but it has some other stuff thrown in as well. I want to promote it as best I can!

Also, if you have any suggestions for me or things that just really suck tell me. :blink:

You can use different promotional programs to start with as well.
One of them is www.FreeViral.com
I use it myself and find it very effective. And it's completely free which is good! :P

Depends on your budget. You can start buying many ads or start giving out free goods or even launch a contest, but that's probably not what you're looking to do.


What I found useful is to start networking.

Find other sites that share similar contents and email them that you want to share links or ad spaces. You both will gain from this!

Having other sites to link to your site will get you up on the google search results too.

Good luck!

You can also try to exchange links with the sites you like.
By the way, when I visit your site, I get a 403 error.

I am sure you haven't overlooked it but you want to make sure to register your site with all the major search engines as well as make sure your site is search optimized.

There are numerous sites available that offer Search Engine Optimization tips, here is one: http://www.seochat.com/

The best ways that I've found is to make sure that you have good, well written content on your page so that people are drawn to it. Next, make sure the code is well written and not full of errors. Change your signature to include a backlink to your webpage like mine. Backlinks will help the search engine crawlers rank your page higher. Submit your webpage to different search engines like google, yahoo, etc. Write a robot.txt file for your webpage. Create a sitemap.xml file. Make some fliers to hang around in your community. Search Engine Optimization takes time, but once your webpage is ranked higher up in the search engines, you'll start seeing more traffic.
