    I would say with something like this you might want to try word of mouth advertising, not necessarily 100% online. In regards to online, however, you have to give a reason for people to come to your site over the already existing networks. Promote something good about your site via Facebook and YouTube. Social media, for a site like this, will be your most powerful tool if you feel you can't use SEO to outrank the existing sites.

    Best of luck to you!

    You should think about traffic before you even started this whole project, but well you learn from mistakes

    Ferma, i'd agree - however - sometimes it can be useful to think on ones feet and get the force to make an idea work.

    Perhaps promote it as an "adult only" video conference service, or a really targeted niche ... nothing sells more than "talk face to face to other old aged, middle class, cat loving widows who need reconciling with their grief".

    Anything that helps with a pain (i.e. in this case, a video support group), would help hook in and keep good traffic. This should have been done outright on the project though!

    Lessons learnt, i guess!
