    Submit your site with free url submit sites, sign up for free auto surf sites, exchange links, give something away for free on your site. IT SHOULD ALL BE FREE
    I offer free TV online and get about 35,000 hits a day
    try offering free online games, headline news, free ebooks

    Good Luck

    Start out investing small then as time goes on you'll be able to reinvest in a bigger ad budget. Try Pay Per Click advertising. First You select a few keywords come up with some attractive headlines and then launch a PPC ad campaign with Google Adwords. The next thing you know is that your site is receiving a steady flow of traffic. Then hire an SEO expert to help get your site ranked higher in the search engines and beforre you know you will be left with life long traffic. It takes time..

    Submit your website to every free, good quality directory you can find.
    You may need to also optimize your websites content.

    Re: help to advertise new website

    So far as my exp the Google Adwords and Email Marketing are the best effective ones.
    However if we have small ad budget then FREE posting is the good choice untill we get sufficient amount and knowledge to do the paid advertising.

    Smile Re: help to advertise new website

    Daveball,

    Here is a little of what I know about driving traffic to a website for free:

    1) Write articles with the author resource box at the bottom which has the link to your website. Submit the article to directories and proliferate the article all over the net. Watch the clicks begin. Rinse and repeat with great articles over and over again.

    2)Blog and ping: blog regularly about your auction items, use keywords from social bookmarking sites in the proper format, set your blog up to ping blog directories everytime you enter a new blog entry. Make sure your blog entries have a footer with a link to the site you wish to drive traffic to. Rinse and repeat.

    3)Make posts on active forums with a signature that has a link to the page you wish to promote.

    4)Leave comments on really active blogs with a link to the page you wish to promote

    5)Be a part of bonus packages and give away bundles. Create a free report, offer it to these packages and include links to the page you wish to promote. This requires that you have a special report, software program, or other valuable thing to give away.

    6) Joint Venture with other website owners interacting with your target market. For instance, you could write a special report about your auction item theme or topic, give it to webmasters that cater to the same crowd, and have the link to your auction site on every page in the header and footer of the pdf document. Then you go viral.

    These are just a few techniques off of the top of my head. There are hundreds more!

    Please comment on what is listed, talk about your good or bad experiences with these techniques and offer more suggestions.

    All newbies will deeply appreciate the effort from the more experienced IMs in the group.

    Thanks!

    Re: help to advertise new website

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: deleteauction() in /home/totalbi/public_html/cron/cron1.php on line 227

    Can't see anything

    However I do think the concept is interesting, with an auctioning site, all you really need to do is spread what you are selling around and it will bring ppl in left right and center..

    Your probably talking about google adwords, this is a ppc (pay per click) program where your ad appears on the right hand side of google search results.

    Go here http://adwords.google.com/

    Sign up, but make sure you do some heavy reading before you start using it. As a general rule you can put a daily budget in there, but I have found that people often assume this is a worse case, but in my experience google will almost always ensure you spend that amount each day.

    You need to be careful and identify what keywords your potential customers are going to be trying to find items you can help them with and then advertise with those keywords.

    A great, free resource to find keywords is overture
    http://inventory.overture.com Remember this data is not "google" data as such, but is still a very valuable resource.

    Also I surfed over and checked your website and you need to do a little work in the html if you want your site to list well in the search engines.

    Firstly make sure you use the meta description and meta keyword tags on every page. The meta description is going to be the text that shows up in the search engines when you do eventually get indexed by the search engines, so make it a good description of your website.

    The meta keyword tag is not as useful as it once was, but I still recommend you put your keyword and keyword phrases in there, but make sure you dont repeat them.

    Also a vital thing, you dont have a main header tag i.e. <h1> it's absolutely vital you have one in there with a clear description of what your website is about. The search engines place great relevance on that. I note you have an empty <h2> and are using <h3>.

    Make sure you use them to their full potential as it will help you a lot.

    You should never repeat a <h1> tag on your webpage (one only per page) but <h2..h6> can be repeated.

    If you are looking to get your website listed quickly in the search engines, try posting an ad on craigslist.org (free if you choose the correct location and category) or post a classified ad on ebay (not free, but inexpensive).

    Good luck with it all.


    Cheers
