    Hi everyone!

    First I'd like to thank everyone for all the great posts and information here!

    I have a five letter domain (a name which makes no sense), and we have a team of posters who posts funny/cool video's. We also post our opinions in a blog post every now and then.

    My question is: how can I get a good amount of traffic to my website? I now have around the 10 visitors per day on the website, and they'll all from organic searches.
    Is Google Adwords a good idea?
    Maybe advertising on an other blog?

    I'd like to here your thoughts!

    Kind regards

    Thanks everyone, will try these methods. SEO doesn't work well I've noticed.

    The social networking sites like twitter, facebook is the best place where people interact each other and discuses about many things. If you can spent three to four hours daily in those sites and participating the discussion you can drive cool traffic from your friends circle alone. You may need to put quality content in your website and allow them to comment on your blogs or news.

    In this cases people suggest facebook which is a good source for the purpose but what about G+, do it work or is it just a waste of time?

    Thanks for your post. I'm going to make the website more social, by adding Twitter/Facebook boxes. Also going to make a Twitter and Facebook account to add content on those accounts. Also thanks for your tip from getting traffic from my social circle.

    Now I'm working 8 hours a day, but in the evening I'm spending my time on my websites. When my workcontract is over I will spend all my time on my IM business. Now I'm having a stable 50 euro per day via my websites, hoping to scale it up. I'm working slowly, but steady.
