    Nice content site

    Hello,

    I've had my Dream Theater resource site up for about a month and a half now. So far, it's only been recieving minimal traffic. I used mod_rewrite throughout the site (though not the forums) and have it full of content. The next version will feature more content and a new, easier to use design... Hopefully, the launch of that will also launch my traffic up.

    I've purchased a logo which will be used on the next version as well.

    I've also noticed that it still hasn't been indexed in Google.

    My question is, how should I go about spreading the word? I put a lot of effort into it but so far have recieved barely anything in return traffic wise. My average for this month was around 70 uniques a day.

    The url is: http://www.crimsonsunrise.com

    Thanks!

    Try submitting your site to DMOZ.org, that usually works in getting your site indexed by Google. Also, try increasing links to your website also. The more links you have to your site, the better

    Get linked to from other Dreamtheater sites. A good link can get Google all over your page within 24 hours. Front page links are the best.

    Google Sitemap

    use this tool

    to produce a sitemap, upload it to your site then go to Google Sitemap

    join, add the link in and let Google do their stuff..

    I run a number of sites and this has definitely helped.

    Find a good list of directories, and spend an afternoon submitting to all of them. That won't always get you a lot of direct traffic, but it can give your Google ranking a nice little boost.

    Such as this list...

    Unfortunately, I don't see that as a very useful idea... I mean, it might give a minimal return on Google, definitely won't send much traffic (if any), directories are essentially link-farms, lots of links = little value.

    I agree to what Cutter and Jeremy said
    . Try exchanging links with few related sites with specific keywords and also spend some time in submitting your site to directories. Keep in mind about the anchor text and your link ( while exchanging links)
