    What is the best way to promote a website?

    I know about SEO but not too clear about its steps.

    The question is way to broad for a specific answer. Depending on the type of business, and what the website is designed to do, SEO may not be the answer. For some types of businesses, a social media campaign may be a better way, or a combination of the two. For a seasonal business, a PPC campaign can be a better solution. Without more specifics, it is difficult to give an in-depth answer.

    I would agree with Joe, "the best way" is not specific enough. There are great ways to promote if you have money, if you don't have money there are alternative ways to promote. If your site is consumer based the answer will be different than if it is a business to business type of site.

    Seo works but it will take a while and a good deal of time. If you have some change and want traffic right away start placing ads

    There are various ways of promoting your website. But, before we can help you further can you provide us more details about your website and what kind of visitors you're looking for? And also it'd help if you can tell us about your budget for promoting the site.

    There are various ways to promote your website. You can either take help of any SEO company or can do it by yourself. If you are going to hire an SEO service, choose wisely as there are thousands of them in the market but only a few are good. Or if you are thinking of doing it by yourself, you need to have deep knowledge of various aspects of Website optimization, on-page and off-page factors etc.

    Well it depends on the nature of your website. There is thousands of blogs and website even on a single segment. So the way to promote your site is depend on its nature. If you have fixed all onpage issues then off page SEO helps to promote your website. The other common ways to promote your website are
    (1)Google Adwords
    (2)Search engine marketing
    (3)PPC

    If its a new site I would go with the paid traffic route, which means Google adwords, microsoft adcentre etc

    If you know your topic well you could use what is known as article syndication which is where you write an article on your topic, it has to be good and long (1000 words +) then you approach blog owners in your niche. In return for you providing content you can include a link back to your site in the byline.

    You can also produce a short book on your topic which you can then distribute through kindle or the free book sharing sites with a link back to your site in the book. This will provide qualified traffic.
