    These are very good tips. But what should be kept in mind is that you we cannot expect overnight success from these endeavors. They take time and consistent effort. You must first work on building a reliable and reputable online presence. Do not be too eager to advertise your site, else you will just be counted as a spammer.

  13. Hey Brian,

    I think a couple more great traffic generating methods that could be added to the list are video marketing on sites like YouTube and using press releases. Getting your sites listed in directories can also be a decent source of traffic at times.
