    I'm not new to creating sites, but I am new to getting them seen! I create sites and put a lot of work into them, but I don't have the knowledge or expertise to get them seen by people from search engines and whatnot, all of my members come from exchanges or word of mouth to friends.

    How could I get my sites seen more?

    Hi
    I think that the best way are to create a value and unique content pages to your site,

    also if your domain name have keywords, it will much improve your ranking.

    Another vote for the SEOmoz blog. It is a wealth of information for optimizing your site both on-site and off-site. Be sure to not fall into the trap of manipulative SEO techniques because someday you WILL pay a price.

    Start by spreading it to social media like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest. Also don't forget StumbleUpon.

    Yes that's the best thing to do even you can do that. But if you have that much money you can hire an SEO to the the work for you.

    There are many ways to get traffic beside SEO.

    Be present there and you will see that traffic will start to come.

    I may invest in some SEO, but for now I'll stick at the social sites.

    Did you say that your websites are seen more often through viral sharing? If that's true, then you should not worry about learning or investing in SEO in a short period of time. Google loves websites that are constantly shared by users.

    What I want to suggest to you is to learn to monitor your websites statistics. There are several ways on how you can do that.

    Although the basic process is a simple three steps, it's not an easy process to execute. For those who are not familiar with it, it may prove to be a daunting process, and there are tons of people providing "services" that are more than willing to take advantage of a newbie's lack of knowledge.

    There are three basic steps to SEO. Keyword Analysis (also called Keyword Research), On-Page Optimization, and Strategic Link Building. Keyword Analysis is the process used to find the keywords that will bring you the most targeted traffic. It's important to get not only high-traffic keywords, but keywords that are searched by people actually interested in the subject of your website. or your product/service. On-Page Analysis is where you examine your websiteto not only make sure there are no errors, but you are doing the right things to make your site both search engine and visitor friendly. The most important part of Strategic Link Building is the first word - "strategic". Don't fall into the trap of using only one type of link because you heard that it is more valuable than others. Diversify your link profile to make sure you get links from a variety of places. More help can be found in this thread, and if you have any other questions that have not already been asked, feel free to start a new thread.
