1- Advertise Advertise Advertise. And on that note, I have found this Anoox search engine & social net to be best buy for me as a small business with under $1000 per Month Ad budget.
2- Add real sticky to your Site, such as Chat.

For best free Traffic you cannot beat Anoox. Because Anoox is the only non-profit search engine & social network in the World. It is only search engine & social network that puts us on Main Street ahead of profit and share prices on Wall Street as Google, Facebook, etc. Wall Street based Media outfits of course do.

Totally agree. If you want to make the Google Billionaire class share holders on Wall Street Richer, then Advertise on Google. OTOH if you want to make yourself and your share holders Richer, Advertise on Anoox since it is only nonprofit social net and search engine. It really is a life saver for small businesses such as mine.

Google provides Google My Business (GMB) which is free. I am a big fan.
If you have a local presence then this free tool will be very helpful. You need an office or a service area to use GMB. Although, you could set your office hours to "By appointment only" so that people don't drop by unexpectedly. You can't have a UPS store or virtual office but you can have use coworking space's address if you use it regularly.
Google is moving to natural language understanding. Through GMB you will be feeding Google exactly what they need know about your business. This will make it easier for them to rank you where you belong.
Posting in GMB is another great way to tell Google what it is that you do or provide. Think entity.

I always think that ads is the most effective way๏ผŒGoogle has started to rubbish out some web contents for certain sites yet not restrictions adwords. All search engines are full of premium adwords advertisements. Why is this because ads are the most effective method at the moment

The key is to build backlinks. There are a tremendous amount of web directories that offer do follow backlinks. Use Google to search for "do follow backlinks for my business". When filling out the profiles be sure to completely fill out all sections. Also be sure to upload pictures with your keyword tagged on them. Be sure to have as many social profiles built like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, etc. Many of the listing sites offer putting live links to these profiles. You will also want to complete Google My Business profile, and Bing business profile.

However, to be effective your website needs to have a proper website structure and content SEO'd for your keywords. for the SEO to work effectively. If you want more info on what a website needs, let me know.

Citations in online directories, such as the Yellow Pages and dozens of others, is a great start to building backlinks. Plus, this enhances your website authority. The least expensive service to do this for you, which is called citation aggregation, is Neustar Localeze: *****

Back links are important. Not in the same way they used to be and you need to be careful to keep track of what you are doing. Also keep an eye on who is linking to you.

Search about bad incoming links. They can hurt your rankings.

One of the big though that will hurt your site in the long run is Time on Site.

Some will argue this.

If you engage the reader and viewer they will stay on your site for a longer period of time. Hence people saying quality content.

Good Luck!

Now it's easy to promote Facebook for free. There are numerous tools to promote. You do not have to pay for it if you use a personal account. Record live videos about what you do. Facebook increases their reach.

Social platforms are a great way to promote a site and of course SEO. You need to invest some time into it in order to get good results. Of course, there is always a paid advertisement.

The best free way to promote a Site, outside of your circle, is what Anoox makes available here. That is by thoughtfully and passionately answering other peoples questions to get best answers out, get the TRUTH out, and hence establishing yourself as authority on that subject. However, the amount of such free traffic you get generally is not enough to run a real business site off of it and you should definitely add to this free traffic with paid advertising and on which paid advertising anoox gives us the best too since it is a non-profit search engine & social net, and it is only one. Hope this helps. Get the Word out.

By sharing the site on social platforms you can easily promote your site or if you have basic or advance knowledge of digital marketing techniques you can grow your business.

Yes totally agree. Best way to promote a Site is indeed:
1- To be active on Social Media
2- Targeted PPC Advertising
And for both of these ways, I find Anoox to be a God sent since as a non-profit search engine & social network it lets us to meet new people based on our social activity far better and more than Facebook or Linked do; and it lets us Advertise too at a fraction of the Advert cost at Big Wall Street firms of GFTL, which sounds a lot like Go F***k yourself small businesses :)

verichip, if you want to get f***d as a small business try advertising on Google, Facebook, etc. Big Wall Street Media outlets. Since they do not give a S***T about us small businesses, except they oh so love us on their TV Advertising, but in reality they think of us as little people and could not care less if we die or eat s***, as long as they can get as much money out of us to send to their Bosses on Wall Street so their share prices can go higher. Sorry to be so blunt people.

Your comment is direct and to the point. The major advertising outlets (such as you mentioned) are totally about making a profit for themselves. We cannot expect anything else.

Yes, totally so. I am glad that more and more People such as you are waking up to the fact that BIG Wall Street Mega Goliath's such as Google, Facebook, etc. do not give a S***T about us small businesses, except they oh so love us on their TV Advertising. Otherwise they could not care less for us small businesses, unless we are paying them our last dime for Advertising so they can fly on their $100-Mill Private Jets to their $50-Mill Mansions. Thanks GOD for this non-profit Anoox.

Hi drmoosa,
Google My Business.
Free listing and when someone searches on Google for your business, the search results are on the left and your Google My Business listing is on the right.
Add all the content you can, keep it current and you're golden.
Google is not a popular service here on Anoox BUT they are the King Kong of search.
Take care, be well, have fun, Tom

Well you can submit your Site for Free Indexing to Google, Anoox, etc.
Of course by having your Site just Free Indexed you will likely get very very little Free Traffic to it since Millions of others can have similarly have their Sites Free Indexed. That is why a real business, always spends real money on Advertising to Promote A Site. So that you can stand above the crowd. The question then becomes what is most effective and best buy in Advertising for a real business? And I think Anoox is a great buy if you have low budget and Google of course is a great buy if you have huge budget.

Ah, and if you still just want free Indexing to get free traffic, even though that may be way too litter, here is free Indexing page on Anoox: https://www.anoox.com/add_for_indexing_free.php

Here it is on Google:
https://kb.yoast.com/kb/how-to-connect-your-website-to-google-webmaster-tools/
Not as easy a process as Anoox, but you should be able to get it done after few hours :)

What are you talking about! Free Submissions on Anoox are Indexed within 48 Hours. I do not know about Google. But they are under 48 Hours here on Anoox. Of course your Site needs to be of value to the collective to be listed for free and get resulting free traffic.
But again if you are really in business, then do not rely only on free search engine traffic from your Site free Indexed but spend real money on Advertising.

Well Anoox gives you multiple ways for getting Free Traffic and Free Advertising.
They come by supporting the other members, aka the Collective here, as they explain it:

https://www.anoox.com/shared_and_grow.php
&
https://www.anoox.com/free_advertising_anoox.php

So if you use your brain to be helpful to others here, that is the collective, then you stand to get much Free Traffic and Free Advertising. OTOH, if you are lazy and just want to get Free traffic, well then that is SPAM and you will be kicked out promptly for that.
