    I've been looking around for a good host, which I've found on FatCow $30/year for the first year, but anyways I've notice that when you sign up to with any host they offer a service this service:
    "Drive Traffic to Your Site. Optimize and submit your site to business directories and top search engines with SubmitNet Basic. Raising your search engine rankings will help customers find your site."

    My question is, would any recommend paying a few extra dollars to get this service, or is it not worth it?


    • Side note: I am personally not skilled in the ways of SEO yet.

    Thanks MafiaBoss! I had a feeling that was the case, but considering I'm a noob I thought it would be a good idea to get advice someone more experience on here

    All seems like stuff you could learn to do yourself with a quick google search.

    You're right. Between google and the forums here I should be good to go....well that is if I choose not to let the learning curve knock me out of the race before I even get started. Haha

    those services are totally waste. If you want to gain huge traffic
    add valuable content to your site
    grab potential viewers using social shares
    Try DIY seo, if it does not work move towards any paid services ;)
