    Hey guys. I just started a Tech news site (no its not autonomous) and before you yell (WTF ARE YOU FUCKING STUPID SRGSRG!!!) I did this for fun, for me.I have myself and a few friends now writing articles and it's actually going pretty ok. We submit all the articles to reddit. One we did on Apple and submitted to /r/apple. Those cult followers just bum rushed my site with a ton of traffic. The other articles though, they don't do to well. To be fair I haven't eve done anything yet though.

    I own SB but I don't know what keywords I would use since news updates every second and most people dont search for specific news articles. It would be stupid to try and rank "Tech news" or anything remotely similar to that due to the high traffic.

    So I'm just wondering, What can I do to get my site seen besides social media.

    I'm not very good at SEO but you can use some of my advice. Firstly, you should add content. Tech niche is a very full of, as website and also as news, so you have what to write about. Secondly, social media is gold. Usa Facebook, twitter, digg, reddit and you can get some decent amout of trafic from those sources.

    Furthermore you can try to get backlinks on many keywords You can add a category to your blog specially for iphone news/games, laptop news and even more.

    I would recommend doing these first.
    #1 - Get at-least 90 up to date news articles posted on your site.
    #2 - Apply for Google News. If you get accepted you get listed on news.google.com and you will see tons of traffic.
    #3 - Then worry more about SEO. If you are using Wordpress then there are hundreds of plug-ins to help you out.

    News sites making a killing with every major headline as Google has a feature that ranks news sites instantly for breaking news. And people link to news articles like crazy.
    I recommend submitting the article links to reddit.com, you can expect thousands of visitors if all is well planned. I know this as I got more than 200 visitors to a crappy site.

    For news site, By the time you SEO the pages they will be outdated. Get the website noticed by interacting with relevant sites and link to your articles. Also get social traffic and after a while you will get more visitors and natural backlinks provided that your content is up to date and of high quality.

    Try to submit unique articles that have links to your site.
