Digg.com is a user submitted and user rated news site that has spawned hundreds of clones which is great for anyone looking to market their site. Not only should you submit your site and articles to Digg, but you should also find more specific sites like Digg.com that allow for article submissions.
6. Contact Other Blogs
When you launch your new business, start-up or website you should make a list of important blogs related to your site and contact them to inform them of your website. Don’t spam people with emails, one well-written and informative email to a few of sites can work wonders.
7. Create Your Own Blog
Creating your own blog is a great way to produce quality content very quickly and easily. Quality content will get you lots of traffic and backlinks and will establish you as an authority in your niche. WordPress is the leading blog software, its easy to install and its potential is limitless.
8. Comment on Other Blogs
Becoming active in in the web community is a proven method of generating traffic. One of the easiest ways to do this is to leave great, informative comments on other blogs related to your site. Make a list of all the blogs like similar to yours and start leaving comments on new posts. The quicker you leave a comment on a new post the better. Most comments are moderated and will allow you to add a link to your site which is often linked to your name.
9. Submit Your Site to Directories
Directories are an old-school method of getting traffic and better rankings, but more and more directories are becoming worthless because they let any website in. The best directories are moderated to ensure a quality directory. Not all directories will approve you even if you pay so be forewarned.
Make sure your site is top quality and not spammy or solely alive to sell, sell, sell. Also look to see if the category page you are submitting to has PageRank of 1 or more. The higher the better, but don’t expect to see any directory sub category pages with PageRank higher than 4 or 5 (most will be 0, but will still help). Below are some normal website and blog directories to consider:
10. Post in Forums
Posting in forums works wonders as well. As always, become an active member of the community and add links to your signature when appropriate. Keep active and the traffic should flow in. The more authority you have on the forums, the better your chances for getting fast traffic will be.
