    I like to make a short slideshow video and put it up on YouTube with a link to my site. YouTube videos get ranked well on Google because they own YouTube. If you can rank well for a good keyword you can get lots of free, targeted traffic.

    I think most of the members here have said it. For me, the best methods to promote your site is through social media networks, blog/forum commenting, and guest posting.

    Some list builder sites allow you to add your rss feed and your social media sites id's. That is a way to get more traffic to your sites. Also, adding your blogs to blogging directories is a good way too.

    Theres loads, in the form of link building, but if your just wondering other ways.

    1. TV placement ads (similar with the infomercial) where they place the website name, plus the tv air time they bought.
    2. Radio ads (similar to TV) but now just people mentioning for people listening to the radio.
    3. Getting an actual local interview spot (you`d have to contact a pr person)

    You get where I`m getting at, anything thats pretty much "annoying or stoping you" for the 5 seconds of the persons time.

    The new form now is literally educating people, and earning trust aka "content marketing".
