For those of you who want to try an automated service, I highly recommend Add Me! and ABS Easy Submit .
With more than 3.2 billion Web pages competing against yours, you can't rely solely on Search Engines for site promotion.
In my experience, second most important marketing strategy is establishing link exchanges. In analyzing my visitor stats, it is clearly apparent that majority of my traffic comes from reciprocal linking partnerships I have established with Web sites that complement mine.
How do you go about establishing a linking partnership?
When I come across (or am referred to) an excellent online resource, I add it to my "Related Links" page, and, if it's appropriate, I contact Webmaster to see whether they might be interested in swapping links with me. More times than not, response is positive.
Since relevant, high-quality links coming to your site from other sites is increasingly important in getting good Search Engine rankings, I recommend that you put establishing linking partnerships high on your marketing to do list.
For more information about link exchanges, check out LinkLeads.com . LinkLeads is a targeted search engine/portal of Web sites seeking reciprocal linking partners. Membership is free. Getting results is relatively easy.
Although this list is far from comprehensive, these two tasks are an important starting point in your online marketing strategy.
Like building a Web site, promoting it to world is hard work, but I guarantee your sense of accomplishment will be well worth effort when you start to see results. More importantly, visitors!
