Promoting your website.... some free ideas

Now once you have your free website from angelfire or any other number of places, it is time to start promoting it.
Here are a few tips and a few URLs of places that I think you will find helpful.
You will want to submit to every search engine you can find.
A decent automated service that is free is at just scroll down towards the bottom you will see a search engine link.
They ask that you place a banner on your site, it is not tough to do and worth the time savings.

Then go to here you will see a huge list of search engines and indexes that you can submit to, you will want to submit to every one of them that you can.. (I avoid all those that charge for inclusion, I will let you decide if you want to pay for a service that many others make available for freeā€¦)
A tip on this last one, is that it is a good idea to make a copy of your sites description (about 25 words or so) and your sites keywords about 25 again. Sometimes you will be asked to put one on a line and sometimes you will be asked for a list that is separated by comma.

Then the next real trick, is to get your link out and about on the web.
I came across this free service, and really like it.

You will want to avoid schemes that promise 1000s of links, as most major search engines see those schemes as spam, and they can actually hurt your search engine placement.

Now that should keep you busy for a few days.. go get promoting.

For those of you just joining us, you will want to go to the first post and start reading from there, for those of you that have been from first post to here, you are getting close. Keep up the good work!
