    Ok, I'm almost finishing giving the final touches to my first website, in under a day it should be ready to launch.

    Now, how do I start driving traffic to it, any tips?

    Lol, please give us details about your site!

    Generally, you would drive traffic with PPC, article marketing, social bookmarking, SEO, etc.

    I'm just finishing the last details.

    I will upload it a few hours from now into a free hosting service, then I will redirect it to my domain godisover.com

    It will be a news site about atheism, and religion related news.

    social book mark the hell out of it

    go on other related sites and cause controversy and say if you want to discuss this further goto you site...

    i wouldnt put it on free hosting, get a discount coupon for hostgator at least... you have to spend money to make money, imagine if you get your site making tons of $$$ and then just because its on a free host, they pull it down, you will be shit out of luck and have to move everything over - save yourself the hassle... i think hostgator do like a $1 trial for a month or something crazy like that

    good luck - now stop reading this and get yourself some proper hosting!

    Agreed. Free hosting is an awful idea. If you can't invest $5 on hosting then you're in the wrong field.

    Will do!

    But one thing, I have heard several complaints about hostgator hosting service, it's really advisable to use them?

    I have no problem spending $5 - $10 if you guys say that it would make a big difference in my revenue potential!

    I have already 2 articles of my own to submit to the site, should I submit only those 2, or should I spin some atheism related articles and submit as many articles as possible to begin with?

    I've been hearing that the amount of content that a site has is directly proportional to the amount of traffic It'll get, Is that true?

    And one last question, this might be a ridiculous question, but here it goes, how do I index my site in google and yahoo? And since I'm redirecting the site from a hostgator hosting account into a domain registered in yahoo domains, will my content appear in the google searches after I index the site?

    I'll give you a tip. Think about how you are going to monetize your website and how exactly you are going to be promoting it before you even buy a domain name.

    When it comes to promoting it, atheist videos get tons of views on YT. People usually start arguing in comments and as a result your video appears on the most discussed page. I would watermark a few videos and give that a try.

    dillusion - i think hostgator aint bad to get you started but you when your making lots of sites its good to get at least a VPS

    personally for my non blackhat sites i use the follow and have for several years support is excellant - good support is what really sets a webhost apart from the rest...
