    Comparison Shopping Site - How to Gain Traffic?

    I have created a comparison shopping site that is based upon the Shopping.com API. I'm not sure if I can post a link to it here because of forum rules...so I won't. But it is an all-product shopping site that also has a dedicated technology section. The reason for this technology section is because I use that part of the site for my other website, which is a well-established, successful technology review/information website.

    This shopping site already gets traffic from my review website through product comparison/shopping links for products that are reviewed.

    However, I wanted to build traffic for the rest of the site to includes all products, just not technology. I realize that advertising through Google AdWords or similar is probably the best strategy. But what other ways can I promote the site? I'm open to any suggestions.

    If you suggest Google Adwords (or another CPC service), how should I go about creating ads for the site? Should I focus on specific products, categories, etc.?

    Thanks for the help.

    Have you tried writing content on your site and syndicating that content? If not, you can try that out. Another good thing would be taking advantage of social media sites, just as Dostava mentioned. Although I wouldn't consider social media sites as marketing tools, it's still a good chance to promote in such a way that you're also building a bridge between you and your potential customers.

    Marketing starts with value so... What is it about your site that makes it unique / special such that it stands out from the CSE market?
