    I have a great and unique funny picture blog....users can comment and sumbit their own. What would be the best way to get it out there? It is worldwide...and I have it monetized with adsense, infolinks and amazon.

    I really want to get this going viral!

    Any suggestions are much appreciated!

    A Facebook page would seem like the obvious choice, updated every few hours with pictures from your blog.. but I'm sure you've already considered that.
    Hardest part will be getting it viral, best way I've done it in the past was to contact similar page owners for a status update to seed growth. Goodluck

    Yeah, have a FB page...but even getting that built up is tough as FB wants $1 a click just to get people to the page. They lost their mind lol

    Make fake facebook profiles, add friends and then tag them in the pictures. You will get a lot of new fans by doing that.

    Use watermarks to your pictures and create a Facebook Fan Page and promote it. It will boom soon.

    Watermarks are your best bet, but also allow users to share the pictures, and embed them on their own websites with a referral link.

    Make some comics watermarked with your website address and get them shared on FB / Twitter then make a slideshow of few of these comics and upload it to biggest video sites including youtube. Do this hard and you will be there.

    Having your website URL/logo in the corner of a picture or anywhere else on it. This is so the picture can't be copied without giving you credit. It's also used for IM techniques such as this.

    I would recommend using Pinterest as it is driving much traffic to sites now.
    Forum posting would also help.
