It’s time for me to make a huge list! I’ll give this technique a try, Some of the techniques below are old, but some are new, some are web 1.0 (Actually web 1.0 is not even a word ), and some are web 2.0, some are funny., some are not, some are boring, some aren’t. These are just the things that pop out of my mind when writing. So if I get something wrong don’t be shy to correct me.

  1. Create a LinkBait – Like what I’m doing ;)
  2. Submit press releases – PrWeb is a good site to submit on
  3. Bookmark your site – To social bookmarking websites, i.e. digg, del.icio.us, reddit
  4. Ping! – Ping your blog every after you write an article, Try Pingoat.com
  5. Post or answer a question at Yahoo Answers – Then add your link in it! (Do they even moderate that site?!)
  6. Review products – If you bought something at amazon or ebay, write them a review then put your url in it.
  7. Make groups – like Google and Yahoo groups, and then include your URL in it (but don’t look spammy)
  8. Hold Contests – Give away Tees, Links, Ipods, gadgets or whatever people like.

  33. Use the sociable plugin – It ads all the known bookmarking websites and puts it in your posts. This makes bookmarking easier for your readers.
  34. Always Validate – This helps search engines navigate to your site easier. (This I don’t do :D )
  35. Redirect – URL’s with www and without have different rankings, so redirect either one of those two to get all the rankings and backlinks to combine for improved SE ranking./for owners od domains)

Thanks a bunch.

I've been going through this list for like a week taking some of the steps you suggest, and it really has improved my traffic at MaximizingMoney.com.

One comment on social bookmarking sites. I started submitting to Reddit, but think you have to be careful about submitting your own site. They seem to have blocked me from submitting new articles now, at least from my own site.

Just a warning to others, as Reddit otherwise brought me incredible traffic.

Thanks again for the list.
