    Word of mouth is probably the most effective but that takes time to build. Also, a good top level domain name makes it a lot easier for people to tell others about your site.

    Pay Per Click Advertising has worked for me.

    Also, http://www.alexaresearch.com ranks the search engine according to the number of unique searches each engine receives. You could you this to determine which search engine to promote your website.

    Combination of
    Advertising
    a) Banner
    b) Keywords
    c) search engine (Yahoo, Dmoz, looksmart)

    And make sure you have enough content to bring them back.

    You should get a .com domain, otherwise people think your site is unprofessional.

    Not just unprofessional but harder to find. If you want to tell someone about your site it's much eaier to give a .com or .net address then a long URL.
