    Try adding your site to spicypage...socialize and make friends there and help your site go to the top of the category you add it to.

    As a content writing you are on the right track. Just keep doing what you are doing and do it again. The traffic will flow.

    You need to make sure that the sites/forums etc where you place your links are relevant to your own niche. Otherwise you could do more harm than good. Don't just slap them in anywhere. Be choosy.

    What about social video sites like YouTube? Don't you think it's also a good method?

    Yes. It's a good method. I have posted some videos related to my site on my YouTube Channel.
    And I'm getting a good amount of traffic from it.

    Do you create any of the videos yourself GekiDan? Or do you simply upload relevant videos to your channel?

    Yes! Video sites can bring in good amount of traffic. Most people have a longer attention span when watching videos rather than reading long articles. So it is a more effective internet marketing technique.
    You could also try to do some podcasting. There are many people who have already done this with success. Though I haven't tried it myself. :D But I know someone who did it and did great. :)

    I only upload relavant videos on my YouTube channel.
    Like music videos. I'll post a link on that page that leads to my blog where they can view the lyrics or download the song. I get a good amount of traffic from it.

    Thanks for sharing that method with us GekiDan. It is something that I will consider for future promotion of Business Advice Forum.

    Top Five ways to get more links to your site

    After having built up a few sites and learned the hard way, here are my top ten tips for how to build traffic and increase links to your site. Please suggest your own.


    1. Exchange links with similar sites in your niche
    2. Write original, intelligent content that people want to link to
    3. Write articles, eg ezinearticles. These can establish your credibility and also provide backlinks
    4. Post on social networking sites, eg Digg, Facebook etc
    5. Become an active member of a forum. Help others and they will help you back. Use your signature for another link to your site

    Please add your suggestions to the thread

    Giving something away for free is a good way to generate links to your site. If what you are offering is considered valuable by other people they are likely to blog about your offer, tweet about it and post about it on forums.

    You are right.
    Doing some contest can boost other people's morale to visit your site.

    I mainly suppose
    - Writing articles and backlink sitename

    However, it's always better to use free services like free-directory submission, and posting in forum and blogging and often social-networking etc.
