Ways to Promote Your Web Site for FREE

Once you have registered your domain name, purchased your web hosting account, and designed your web site you will most likely begin considering ways to bring traffic to your web site. Telling all the people you know would be a great way to start, but you must remember - the Internet is worldwide and you have the ability to reach people anywhere in the world, take advantage of it. Don't just think regionally, think globally. The following is a useful list of free ways to promote your web site and increase traffic:

*Utilize social media web sites (like MySpace, Facebook, Digg, Reddit)
*Comment on blogs (particularly blogs related to your industry)
*Submit your site to web directories
*Run a contest
*Online groups (Google and Yahoo Groups)
*Free Classified Ads (Craigslist)
*Photo sharing (Flickr, Photobucket, Shutterfly)
*Get interviewed

These are just a few ways to get your name out there. You don't necessarily have to spend thousands of dollars to successfully promote your web site, be unique and work hard.
