    You need exclusive news, and voila. News sites get the most backlinks because you need only one exclusive news and all the major sites will link back to your article.
    So, don't think about link building, think about getting exclusive news published

    twitter can be a good solution for news sites.
    Especially if you make a sensational news, your traffic can increase very fast

    That's a good idea, you follow popular people on Twitter, publish it first, and then you have a bigger possibility of links.

    Focus on SMO to publish your site as possible as you can. Specially on Facebook and twitter. As this is news based site so news will be updated on daily basis so you should also focus on RSS it will help you more.

    News site can spread by sharing to social networking sites, but you must have exclusive and interesting news and up to date, now a days visitors are more interested in videos, they dont like to read a long story, if your news are informative they will spend some times to read this out, so when published a new story share the links to facebook and twitter, for better support make a facebook page or twitter account with the news site domain name, so people understand that it's an official page of your news site, social networking sites are really helpful for news or magazine site, and one thing you must do, digg. Cause this website is full of other news headline. You will get some visitors from digg.

    If you have any site copying pictures of other peoples websites if you don't have the right can be a BAD IDEA.

    I'd highly advise you to remove them, use SXC or stockfreeimages.

    You can get traffic to your website by submitting it first to search engines, posting articles and comments to article directories and forums with your domain name or links to your site. Make sure also to create a dynamic and compelling contents that would entice visitors and others to either share it or bookmark it. You can also use social media, such as facebook and twitter, to promote your site and get more followers or likes. If you want to spend a little amount to promote your site, you can advertise it or give freebies or promos so that users will be encouraged to visit your site or like it on facebook.
    There are many sources of traffics but if you are looking into RANKING your sites then there is some tools that could help you if you KNOW HOW TO USE IT PROPERLY. You can use magic submitter, senuke xcr, bmd and etc.

    it covers everything means nothing if its a content site. If its latest news of anykind then it has to be duplicate from CNN, and other huge sites. In that case forget SEO, because how can a new site rank high in seo for duplicated stories already covered by reputable sources.

    * guest posing
    * blog commenting
    * forums
    * answer sites

    If you need help on anything, pm me I'm currently building my news site maybe check it out ypim.co.uk

    And the above posts say how can anything rank high if other reputable sources are covering it check this out, page 1 in Google owned bbc.png
    Don't know what I did there but it worked! And to get more links back to your site feel free to register/submit to my site and back link back to yours, my site seems to get indexed pretty fast. If you register be sure to fill out all the seo information for the post.

    Hey David, thanks for sharing. (You better remove your site name from here, keep it as a secret) my site is pretty much like your site...though my one has almost 200 articles based on latest news, reviews and funny videos etc. Though havn't put any advert yet. Created Facebook fan page (only 5 fan so far). Twitter I have close to 10,000 followers. I bought some bookmarking service from Fiverr and some basic linking.

    Congrates on your first page listing. Havn't found any of mine yet on any ranking so far. daily visit less than 10 still. Though I am not giving up, will continue posting unique articles and news. should have been made as a magazine rather than news based site I guess.

    Anyway, I planning to buy some articles now. maybe 100 and some social bookmarking.....

    Social media marketing would be the best option for news websites...
