    Thanks for the great post and tips.

    I would add that it is critical to also build quality backlinks as this is a major part of how google rank the authority of your site. It is also really important to submit your RSS feed to aggregators for even more link love.

    I also think that as you mentioned quality, original content is critical (if not for google, for the readers). A place I use all the time to check if content I am using is original is copyscape.com...............and the best thing is it's free.

    Another brilliant free service is socialmarker.com - it allows you to post to all you social accounts much quicker then normal (as it is a free service it can be a bit "buggy")..........but still saves loads of time.

    Happy SEOing

    sh02 do you use socialmarker.com yourself?

    I just tried to use it to submit a link to our Twitter contest here on BAF. The first site it went to submit it to, was Propellor.com, I had to sign up with Propellor, because I didn't have an account there already. Then I got stuck on the Propellor page and I don't think the story was submitted anywhere else.

    Do you need an account at everyone one of the social networking sites that they submit to?

    Yeh, I used to use socialmarker.com a lot, but have now changed to a paid automated system that also builds back links.

    Yes you do. You need to create accounts at all the social sites you want to promote your stuff to. I used to only use the "top" account feature, which promotes to the best 15 sites........I also then submitted to stumbleupon . Also as the software is free it can be a bit "sticky" but I still found it saved me loads of time and once you have gone through the process once, it saves your passwords and is much quicker the second time.

    Also I just went on the site and it seems they are having problems promoting to twitter.

    Thanks for that sh02, it sounds good, I'm signing up for the 11 day trial now. I don't see a privacy policy on their site, are you confident that they don't spam?

    Hello Hansh,
    I read your entire post and all tips are great and very useful to gain traffic to your site. Here I am posting some more tips.
    - Register your URL with major search engines, directories and specialty sites, as well as select paid directories.
    - Use strategic home page content.
    - Use hyperlinks to further weight in-text keywords.
    - Encourage in-bound links from other relevant sites to your pages.
    - Add an integrated web log to your web site.

    You can also submit articles and press release content. On the content of your article on what we called the body you can put or insert your link there or website. It passed google crawling. Google detect also links not only the article content.

    Those 5 tips are really relevant for us to increase traffic. Probably avoid black hat method just like keyword stuffing and blog spamming beacause it really doesn't help. Properly optimizing your website pages to make them search engine friendly and it will greatly increase your organic traffic.
