    I'm just curious, and would really love to know this. Is there any way to promote your site without using any backlinks?

    This might be a stupid question; but once again, I'm just curious.

    Niche specific email lists might do the trick as well. I've found that submissions to reputable article sites, as well as social bookmarking, does help to get some initial traffic. Obviously, the more you do, the better results you'll see. If it's a locally-based website, offline advertising could be an option.

    lol, I read the question went to do something came back to answer and the question
    had changed in my head. So back to the question. I would do social media and create some
    sort of buzz so people would go looking for you or your product.

    With Money - Brute force CPC :) just make sure your margins and working capital is in good standing.

    Without Money - REALLY interesting captivating content.

    You can get backlinks from people who deliberately link to your site because of the useful information they found there. Those are the type of backlinks search engines give more value to. Backlinks are still part of any good website.

    1. If you want to get right away targeted customer/traffic, then Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Digg, StumbleUpon and all other social media and social bookmarking site.

    2. If you don't want to commit too much on these thing, you can make a blog inside your website and add unique content [unless it is not a blog site].

    If your site is a blog already, then do both. I mainly go for 2 as my site is a money site, but I offer a blog where there is free information, to keep returning customer.
