    Hi All,
    there is a possibility i might be putting my question in a wrong forum , but would learn it soon.
    I am a web designer but do not know much about IM or SEO. I designed a social networking site called http://[COLOR="Red"]MY SITE NAME HERE[/COLOR] but after 4-5 months of starting i am still not able to pull any traffic to the site. i get around 80 - 100 visitors per day only. I am really confused as i invested so much in this project and still i dnt find how to reach out to the audience. Am i doing something wrong, or shall i promote my site through g00gle adw0rds. Please help me. I also bought some services from a BHW member for directory listings but still i can't see any changes although the services were approved by one of the Mods.
    Please suggest , what shall i do. Shall i buy traffic from some one on BHW, or whats ???

    You said (and I quote) "or shall i promote my site through g00gle adw0rds"

    From reading your post above, it looks to me like you are already promoting your site though Black Hat World ;)

    Cheers!

    I'm listed in over 1000 directories, including some paid one's like yahoo. Directories send nothing for traffic. Shoot me a pm, maybe I can help.

    Probably because we get more traffic here at BHW
    than Google does... :)


    Well, perhaps thats an exageration, but were pretty high up there.

    A good analogy of what your trying to do is getting into a boxing ring with a world heavy weight champion!

    Why would anyone join your site when facebook is available? I'd give up on a social media facebook clone as many have tried and failed! Try something new and innovative!

    Have to slightly disagree - Facebook was nothing but a unknown website once!!

    Exactly, people don't understand marketing...they think eBay, facebook, myspace just one day had a website and everyone just went to it cause they had nothing else to do.
