When a website is new, it is hard to see good amount of organic traffic in the beginning. The best option is to promote the website in social media, do some advertisement and at a same time, start working on offpage optimization. So in the beginning, social media and advertisements will help you to make your website popular and once your website starts ranking higher in search engines, it will generate organic traffic for your website.
Two - forum posting is likely to either count as spamming or will be pointless for SEO. Reputable forums won’t allow you to post self-promotional links willy-nilly, and are likely to “nofollow” most user-generated links. And because your comments will be on an inner page along with hundreds or thousands of others, even if they are allowed then Google is going to give each link very little consideration.
Three - the best strategy is not to think about search engines. Focus on what will make your site a great site for people to visit.
you should definitely do blogs, forums, articles, maybe some social media… but more effective would be using xml feeds. i would recommend trying cpms, cpcs from 7search, affinity, plexious, miva…
While I do agree that you can’t do it willy nilly. I’ve had great results finding threads that my website contains the answer to. For me I decided to post wallpapers in obscure resolutions (multi monitor and such). There is threads out there in forums with people asking for them and I give them what they want and nobody is upset and I’m happy for having helped someone, this is ofcourse different for your website, but the principal applies. And just because they do the nofollow nonsense doesn’t mean it won’t help your website out in the long run.
apoorva09, adammarleymtts, lightingguru, Zorro D and JimLock; all I can say to the “advice” you’ve given is…
Many of you have a skewed idea of what link building actually is, and if you think that your site is magically going to get popular because you’re spamming a couple of Digg accounts and have posted some crappy article to a bunch of content farms then you should probably find alternative employment.
Secondly, why the hell would anyone want to read about your crappy sites when you spam them on forums?! You may think that you’re doing some kind of legitimate marketing, or “word-of-mouth advertising”, but in reality all you’re doing is annoying people and giving hard-working moderators another heap of crap to clean up. If you’re lucky enough to not get banned from a forum for posting your links then whatever posts you’ve made will probably be worthless anyway.
Finally, social media is no silver bullet and you don’t even get proper backlinks from it! Before you come up with crazy methods actually have a look at the amount of traffic you get for the effort you put into social media, then decide to give the advice that it’s worth pursuing on a brand-new site.
The only advice I can really back on this thread is that from Stevie D.
