    My dear Mate. Google is one of the best search engine on internet. Plenty of internet users come to our sites from search engines. We all do Search engine optimization to gain more traffic to our website and as well maximum ROI. We can choose another way to promote our website over on internet like social media...

    bhatnagarashish every website will need some promotion if it is to be successful from a business perspective. If you provide an excellent service that offers great value to your users, your website will spread via word of mouth. However, it will still need some promotion to get it started.

    Click SSL is not the only one getting plenty of users from search engines. About 70% of people interested in any type of product or service consult a search engine, and Google gets the highest percentage of those searchers. Because searchers can now use a variety of ways to access the search engines, including desktops, laptops, netbooks, tablet computers, and smartphones, they can now access the search engines not only anytime, but anywhere. Therefore, it is imperative that any business with a website make sure that website can be found on the search engines.
    Therefore, although there are undoubtedly other ways to promote a business website, making sure it is listed on the search engines, for the phrases that bring them the most buyers, is crucial for business success.

    Well, without any type of promotion, you will get little to no customers. I highly recommend submitting your site to a search engine because that is where the majority of your costomers will come from

    Yahoo Search is now powered by Bing, formerly msn. The Bing?Yahoo combination is a distant second to Google, and any other search engines share what's left.

    You can still get business without promoting your website but you will get better result if you promoting your website. It is same as you open a restaurant, you will still get some customer but you might get more customer if you promote it

    If you guys read the question he's asking if it's possible to get business without promoting using Google. It's very possible. Word of Mouth is better than any search engine in the world, and if you can get a few very happy customers and get them all to tell 3 of their friends about your product or service, that will grow your business at a exponential growth rate.

    Re:

    According to me if you make a website for your business, website promotion is necessary because the competition for available traffic is very strong.

    But still, you need to let the first person to use your service before the first person can tell someone. And you might consider to promote your service/product to the the first customer before s/he can tell other people. Word of mouth is good but it require long time to achieve the good result and therefore those new company need strong promotion on their service/product. if you are running those branded shop, then you can easily get customer

    Yes, It is necessary to promote a website to increase popularity of the site:

    * Research shows that over 85% of web traffic comes from searches on engines and directories.

    * There are over 9 million websites on the Internet and this is growing in excess of 10% per year.

    * Over 320 million searches are being performed each day (2002).

    * If your site is not ranked within the first 3 pages of the search results (top 30) none of that traffic will come to you.

    * Website promotion is necessary because the competition for available traffic is very strong. Merely creating a web page and posting it will not get you noticed.

    * Website promotion involves the tuning up of your web pages using search engine optimization or SEO for short and then announcing the presence of your site using search engine submission services.

    * Estimates are that only 2-5% of the websites today have been optimized.

    * Claim your share of internet business with our search engine optimization and search engine submission services.

    Google has indexed over 1 trillion websites

    The vast majority of searchers visit the top 5 results on page 1. A small percentage of searchers visit page 2 and page 3. The number of searchers who search past the first three pages is so small it is not even worth considering. The best place to be, for the keyword phrases that bring the most buyers to your site, is therefore is in the top 5 on page 1, not the top 30. Once you've achieved a top 5 ranking for some of your most popular keywords, having more phrases ranked in the top 20, not the top 30, will give your website more credibility.

    I've seen similar estimates. When we do a preliminary analysis of a website for a prospect, many of them get a score of less than 50% out of a possible 100%. Very few of them have a score of over 80%.

    This belongs in the "Member Ads and Marketplace" section, not here.

    Yes, it's necessary, because otherwise you will not have a real business.

    Viral Coefficient

    The answer to your question depends on what exactly you mean by promotion. If you make a site that does not have any viral quality to it, you will probably not get much traffic. But if you build a site that people like because of what it does or what it provides, then the site won't need much promotion beyond telling a few people and letting them spread the word. If the site has what's called a "viral coefficient" of >1, it will not need promotion.

    I have always thought and would continue to think that a good reputation is better to have between people instead of on the internet. As we all know, a lot of businesses previously have done false promotion of their site where they pretend to be a customer. Word of mouth is the best method.
