Free Website Promotion

Website promotion is a step by step procedure that can take a website from obscurity to success. It isn't particularly difficult. It doesn't require any special skills. It just needs common sense and a desire to learn the art. Then, all you have to do is follow the steps and watch the results. 

There are many places where you can learn how to promote your own websites. You don't have to pay a company to do it. One excellent resource is DIY Website Promotion. Their site has a very minimalistic plain look, but the information is sound. Here are some steps that will also help in your website promotion efforts. 

You should start by making sure that your website is properly optimized for the search engines before you start to promote it. There are two basic things you need to look out for: onsite factors and offsite factors. 

Onsite factors include: 

• Researching keywords and choosing the best keyword for your main home page as you main overall keyword. 
• Making sure that your main keyword is in the page HTML title. 
• Making sure that your main keyword is included the description tag (and the keyword tag too is you like). 
• Making sure your main keyword included in an H1 tag as the page headline. 
• Including your main keyword in the body of the page text in the first paragraph. 
• Including your main keyword throughout the rest of the text body a few times. 
• Using your main keyword in the Alt tag of any images on the page. 

Offsite factors include: 

• Getting quality back links with your main keyword in the anchor text if possible. 

Once all these factors are in place, website promotion becomes a lot easier. If your website has none or very few of these onsite and offsite factors in place, your best bet for promoting your website is to use pay-per-click (PPC) advertising. This means that you would pay to have your website promoted. 

However, it's really quite easy to do it for free. Having all the onsite factors in place is essential. You will also need several pages in place that Google will look for. These include a contact page, a terms and conditions page, and a privacy policy page. 

If you are an affiliate promoting a product for a commission, you are advised to also have an affiliate disclosure page as well. Mike Young's Internet Law Resources can help: 

You need to get back links to your website. This could be all the website promotion you need. With good back links in place, your website should rise naturally in the search engine results pages. This will mean that more people will find your website and your website will work much better for you. 

You could submit a small part of the main page text as a story to social media sites like Digg , Propelleror Mixx

You could also distribute your site's RSS feed to the RSS aggregators, and write articles and include a back link to your own site. Do what it takes to get quality back links. That's one of the most important aspects of website promotion.
