Website Promotion

Website promotion or 'off page optimization' is the task you undertake once your website is uploaded to the internet and has gone live. Website promotion is not a one time thing, it is an ongoing effort you put in to get and keep traffic coming to your website.

Hopefully, you will build more profitable websites and embark on other  business projects once your first home based business is up and running.  Don't put all your eggs in one basket. However you need to discipline yourself to set aside enough time each week to devote to marketing the websites that are already functioning. Make yourself a schedule and be diligent about your website promotion activities.

I will cover some of the best and basic methods of website promotion in this section, but always be open to new ideas, or new to you for promoting your website. The internet changes, and what worked last year may be less effective this year. If you have followed the guidelines explained elsewhere on this website, you have done what you can in the website building process to make the best effort in 'on page optimization'. So now we'll move on to the 'off page optimization' methods.

First of all, don't get caught up in websites that promise to submit your website to a zillion search engines. It's a waste of money. As a matter of fact, most marketers agree that directly submitting to search engines is a waste of time. This applies to Google as well. You can go to Google and see what they have to say about it themselves if you are in doubt.

They will tell you that getting links from other websites and having the search engine follow them to your website is really the best way. Getting links will be covered later in this section.

Before I forget, don't confuse search engines with directories. Search engines spider your website with robots or spiders, not people. With directories your website will be reviewed by humans. DMOZ is the major directory and you do want to submit to them manually. This is the major way to get into Yahoo. To submit to the Yahoo search engine costs $299 and they don't guarantee admittance even then. Go through DMOZ!

When submitting to directories, study their guidelines first so you do it right. Read this guide to learn about DMOZ. The following pages will cover more methods of website promotion.



  • Link Popularity
    Link popularity is a necessity if you want to get your site spidered and indexed in the search engines.
  • SubmissionTo Directories
    Submission to directories is just one part of the equation in promoting a website, but an important and valuable one.
  • Directory Submission
    Directory submission is of great value in getting backlinks, but it is a tedious process. Here are some tips to help you streamline your submissions.
  • Reciprocal Links Get Attention
    Reciprocal links are an important part of website promotion. Getting reciprocal links as well as linking one way will help greatly in getting your website noticed by the search engines.
  • One Way Links
    One way links take some effort for a new website. Listing in directories is one of the ways to get one way links.
  • Article Submission
    Article submission on a regular basis is probably the most effective yet least expensive method of promoting your website. Submitting articles is a relatively easy way to get one way links.
  • Article Submission Page 2
    How to format an article resource box with html and realize the power of anchor text when doing article submission.
  • Add Url-Link To Us
    An add url-link to us page is a valuable tool to add to your SEO efforts and can help raise your link popularity.
  • PPC or Pay Per Click
    PPC advertising can be an effective and immediate way to gain traffic to a newly launched website. With PPC you only pay for response.
  • Email Marketing
    Email marketing is and has been one of the top marketing methods on the internet. Building and maintaining a subscriber list allows ongoing contact and potential sales.
  • Promoting a Website
    Promoting a website involves a great variety of methods. Forget submitting to search engines, instead get listed in directories, write articles and submit, exchange links, add rss, and blog and ping.
  • Social Bookmarking
    Social bookmarking is a valuable tool for an online marketer. If you are not using this marketing tool you are leaving money on the table.
