    I really wanted to make this site especially interesting for black-hatters, something all of you can check up and read for SEO strategies, but we'll see where it really goes. Basically, I take stuff I read on here (or other forums) and blog about them. Does anyone have any comments so far?

    And if you like it, make sure you subscribe!

    Thanks.

    Went to check it out, but you'll need to add some content pretty quick!

    I did click on one of your cool helicopter ads though! :)

    Yeah a little more content and if you keep it up to date.. you may actually get some traffic. Not a bad site at all!

    Usually when I see these post here I check it out and its something half retarded or even full blown retarded.

    Just need a bit more content. If you have a spare $20 you could probably get some of the article writters here to have a wack at it. Should get you 10 articles or so... Or you could spin a couple... thats what this shits all about.

    Looked for a wicked helicopter ad but it looks like G is serving relevant ads

    Cheers and good luck!

    Ads below post title are against adsense tos. One little question. Do you get any click, cuz the users know about ads and usually don't click.

    Thanks everyone for the enthusiasm. I want to keep everything 100% me, which includes me writing the articles. I really enjoy this sort of stuff. Expect a lot more to come very soon!

    I just launched the website, so no traffic ('cept for you guys :p)
    I don't believe the ads are against Adsense TOS, as it's a very common and well known trick. Thanks for the concern though.

    Sorry to bump this 'lil old thread, but does anyone have any ideas for getting visitors to my blog? I'm sure they'll like it once they've read something. Perhaps some forums or something? Twitter isn't really working so far...

    here is a list of things I've actually done to promote my site this month. If you implement them, I'm sure they will increase the amount of traffic you recieve, so sooner, some more long term.
    Hope it helps.

    1. Submit to directories:

    I've probably submitted to about 2000 directories ranging in page rank 0 to page rank 9. I've used to paid directories. Yahoo, and hotvsnot
    Yahoo took about a week to approve me (cost is $299 with no guarantee's) whereas hotvsnot which is a pr 6 took less than 24 hours to include my site.
    Ps. If you're doing this manually, get roboform you can thank me later!

    2. article Marketing:

    I've used dozens of article directories this month alone; of them all approval seemed to take between an hour to two weeks. Of them all Article Rich at articlerich, and ezine articles approved my articles the quickest despite a warning saying it could take some time! Hit these guys up first if you're in a hurry.

    3. YouTube:

    Ok, I didn't know how to make a video (hey now, that's not nice... I can hear you laughing) so had someone make a couple for me. Haven't noticed much in the way of traffic so far, but I'm still hopeful.

    4. Social bookmarking:

    Ok, I cheated and used a bookmarking service. Seriously, it would have taken me a week to try and do it manually. They charged me less than $100 bucks and submitted my site to over 500 social bookmarking sites.


    5. Social Media:

    Facebook, Twitter, and Squidoo have been my main methods of Social Media sites I've been using. Here are a couple of ways I use them to drive extra traffic to my site. 1. Whenever I post on my blog, I update both Facebook, and Twitter to let my friends/followers know. 2. I've setup some auto posts using a handy little free website called hootsuite that allows me to schedule "tweets" to go out at predetermined dates and times. I find a good ratio to use is 3 to 1, so basically I'll send out 3 tweets without including my (or any) link, and 1 that does. This way you don't come across as spammy.


    6. Blog Commenting: (Scrapebox) :)

    This one I use sparingly, but whenever I'm visiting a blog and find an article particularly interesting or valuable, I'll leave a comment for the author with a link to my website. I try to always use "Blog Commenting Etiquette" when posting. 1. Try to add something of value to the discussion. 2. Read the post before commenting (I know, common sense, but you'd be surprised how often this happens). 3. No one word comments (refer to rule number 1). 4. Don't bold or italicize your entire comment.
    Posting on Blogs in related niches is a great way to introduce yourself and your blog to likeminded readers.

    7. Signature file:

    Use a signature file in your emails as well as any forum's you may post on. People are always curious, and may just click to see what your site is all about. Especially if it relates to something they are already interested in.

    8. Make top ten lists like this one:

    Some of the most popular posts that get the most traffic, are simple top ten lists related to your particular niche. Try to answer questions people are searching for answers for. Chances are if you've looked it up, they've looked it up!

    9. Submit your Blog and RSS feed to directories:

    If you do a Google search for RSS feed directories, you'll find lists of RSS and Blog directories where you can submit your site/feed to. In about an hour you can probably submit to about 50 directories.

    10. SEO your site:

    Spend some time validating the html on your website, create a sitemap, make sure you have no broken links, and spend a little time optimizing your keywords. All these things will add up, and in the end you'll start to notice Google sending you more and more traffic. If you can get on the first page of Google, you will definitely see an increase in traffic.
