    Hi guys! I'm throwing a challenge to all the SEO gurus here to see if you can help me out. I just built an online store that has recently gone live using shopperpress plugin on wordpress platform. My website sells bluray movie backup discs (a grey business) and my targeted audience is the world over.

    If you were me, how would you promote this new (grey business) online store to the world if you can invest the time daily but not the $$ (because I'm financially challenged) to do online promotional work to gain a significant worldwide visitors immediately?

    I want to use the powerful social media networking to promote it for free, but I do not have any idea how to go about it especially when I want to promote a website that deals in grey market products. FYI, I know how to create a fanpage, but how do I go about doing it subtly so that I can gain a strong worldwide follower while not getting blacklisted or having my fanpage taken off due to what I'm dealing?

    My website is currently getting ZERO visitors because my website has yet to be indexed by search engines. What WOULD YOU DO to work on gaining immediate visitors NOW while waiting for the website to be indexed? It has to be visitors from all over the world and using FREE advertising / marketing platforms.

    Thanks

    i would get out of the business. i can't tell if "backup discs" is an euphemism for pirate copies, but if it is
    1) it's not "grey," it's flat out illegal, and the organizations that dominate film are THE MOST LITIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS IN THE WORLD. entering this realm is retarded.
    2) anyone who is poor enough to buy a pirate blu-ray over the real thing will be too poor to own a blu-ray player
    3) physical media as a whole is dying to streaming and the business has short-term payoffs at best.

    facebook and twitter....
    find people interested in your niche over there. and hit them..

    if you are doing something illegal than chances of getting caught are there.
    from grey I assume you mean... original content but without invoice....

    from illegal I assume you mean ... piracy......

    well I have named these two social networking site..
    one of my niche gets its traffic from ... a different social networking site and not from twitter or facebook....

    use forums .... and social networking site for traffic for gigs blogs and site...
    For a shooping cart I use free opensource... opencart i have tried tested many...

    and I love everything of opencart...

    Ok. Please note that I do not have any social networking accounts. My questions are:

    1. Please elaborate on the method how I can get the initial lead for facebook and tweeter without a friend/fan base to start off with.

    2. How do you go about finding the specific targeted people that are interested in it from these social sites?

    3. When you say hit it, does it mean hitting each individual manually or do you use a software to automate the process of hitting it?

    Can you or anyone please elaborate on this? Thanks.

    create a contest where you give away a bluray player to the person who refers the most people to your site.

    I'm trying to gain visitors by investing my time, not money. I'm financially challenged, remember? And this website is new and have zero visitors and zero sales. Investing more money to advertise is totally out of the question for now.

    I wont be a big help for you with social networking sites
    as i am also testing for my niche.

    but for sure where there are people there are leads
    and leads=money

    competition does pay many folds but initial ting is traffic


    I have changed my seo strategy for google.
    Now i look for long tail keyword even if they dont have searched in 1000's
    for my worpdress blog...
    I add keywords and content in comments also....
    I also use comment for controversies to motivate discussions

    instead of focusing on one high traffic keyword i focus on long tail keywords which quick and better results

    towards black hat
    all automated comments I get I edit them...in wp control panel
    remove back link
    remove anchor text and replace it with genuine names
    and edit comment the way it should be for me...
    keywords ad things which can provoke discussions....
    or longtail keywords which is not that important..

    regular updating ..... fast updating.... initself is most required seo

    comments I dont care much about quality. of writing ....

    using link farm evolution .... or anyother software for backlinking is good..
    create pages in web 2 sites and dont interlink them ( i am more successful this way with google)

    just drop anchor text link for your main domain...
    and build spam links for these web blogs
    I got penalized for building backlinks for my main site so dont risk ur main site.

    and I 've nt bought any tools for building backlinks

    also use fiver... to sell some service and make some money to invest
    what can u sell easily..?
    may be voice over ?
    may be testimonial video?

    there si huge demand fr testimonial video.. and seo work...

    Every strategy depends upon niche you are targeting and country you are targeting.
    with fb i face banhammer quite frequently. so what u mean by grey products? and country u want to sell these products?
