    1. Make sure your home page

    has many keywords that relate

    to your product, service, etc.

    2. Submit your site to at least

    the following free search engines.

    http://www.google.com/addurl/

    http://www.yahoo.com/

    http://www.dmoz.org/

    http://www.exactseek.com/

    http://www.magicyellow.com/

    http://www.claymont.com/home/

    http://www.openup.com/

    http://searchsight.com/

    http://www.websquash.com/

    http://www.dogpile.com/

    Look for the submit your URL or

    suggest a site links. Don't think

    about advertising on any of them.

    I'm sure there are many more small

    local search engines in your state and

    city.

    Also, use the nearest city's local news

    websites to advertise your site. Most

    if not all are free.

    3. If you have a printer, create and print

    business cards on an as needed basis.

    Otherwise have 500 printed, it's not much.

    Color helps but increases cost just a bit.

    My suggestion is black and one more color.

    4. Take your cards around to local businesses

    and see if they'll put them on their counters.

    Maybe you could do the same for them. If

    you don't have a store front you can tell them

    you'll advertise for them on your site if they'll

    put your cards out. You may need to purchase

    business card holders.

    Hope this helps. Good luck.

    You can place a lifetime advertisement on the Wall Around the World, a young budding site looking to explode in 2007. Great spots still available. Remember, its one time for a lifetime.

    The two best ways to get traffic is through pay per click or natural search listing.

    PPC costs real money. You can try Google Adwords, Yahoo Search Marketing or MSN. Google gets the most traffic and as you might expect, usually costs the most.

    Natural takes time and patience, but it is free traffic. The best thing you can do to get ranked in the search engines is to get inbound links to your site from other sites. You need to make sure these are quality sites that are related to your website. (if yours is about cars get links from other car related sites)

    Start by getting listed in directories or writing articles about your business and posting them online. You could write a press release and pay $40 to have PRWeb distribute it online. And there are a bunch more if you start reading blogs about search engine marketing.
