Promoting your web site is very crucial to the success of your business.
If no one knows your web site is on the Internet, how will they
come? As soon as your web site is presentable, meaning it has enough
content where a surfer would be able to look around and see what
your site is about, you should start promoting your site. Make sure
you've got the appropriate meta tags on each of your web pages.
Here are free places to submit your website to today:
The sooner the better because it may take several months for your
web site to be included in the popular search engines. You might
also send out your web address on all of your email messages. If
you post to messageboards or discussion groups you might also attach
your web address.
It's not a good idea to spam messageboards with useless messages
announcing your website. You will get flamed and this ruins your
creditability. Promote your site the right way. If there is a comment
that you want to make on someone's post it is probably ok to post
your url in your signature. Read the messageboard guidelines to
see if posting your url in your signature is acceptable.
Paid search engine submission is the way to make sure your web
pages get indexed in the search engines and you don't have to wait
months to do this.
