How does a new Web Site get more Traffic?

How does a small business with nearly no funds get traffic to their site? I just opened Diamond T Design for business in Jan 2017. I am not getting enough traffic or business to pay the bills. I know you have all been there and I would love to get some good advice.

I have a site that is free of advertising, very easy to navigate, is very attractive, and is free to all who use it. So, I am in no position to pay for advertising. However, I've had good luck, and come up on the first page of many search engines such as Google, Yahoo, etc. What I do is free search engine submissions. I've tried both doing it one at a time by hand, and also using some submission sites that do a number of them all at once. Mostly I like to do the submissions myself, by hand but it takes time. That I have a lot more of than money! My site traffic grows steadily. It keeps me busy and I couldn't take care of much more by myself, so I'm happy.

I've submitted my website to some free search engine, but it didn't work. Confused... :(

Just submitting your Site to search engines for free Indexing will get you little to no traffic, unless your Site is offering something that no other Site is offering. If it is offering what other Sites are offering, then it will be one of 10's of 1000s of Sites Indexed similarly, which means your Site will be lost in the Crowded Internet. So you need to do more.

If you have Millions of Dollars, aka are Wall Street backed, you goto Google.
OTOH, if you are like 99.99% of businesses, which means are not Wall Street backed, and you have few $100 per Month for Advertising, then you Advertise on Anoox, since it is the only non-profit Search Engine / Social Network. Also by helping other members here on Anoox, you can get free Traffic, based on other members liking what you have shared. So please give my comment a Thumbs up :)

Backlinks are a good way to get traffic but quality is better than quantity. a single backlink on a PR5 website is worth about 300 poor quality backlinks. There are some genuine free back link services which give you quality backlinks. Im not sure if im allowed to post links here so I wont but search Google. Dont use any sites which look cheap and tacky which are full of ads and offer thousands of backlinks. Go with the professional looking sites which offer less back links. within 2 weeks you can get 10 quality backlinks and thousands of lesser quality backlinks. Good quality backlinks are the ones which improves your indexing and search engine presence. Poor quality backlinks can hinder you so steer clear of the "1000 FREE back links" websites unless they list the domains which will be linking to you so you can check their quality first.

I would add:
If you want organic quality back links, make sure to put your free Anoox button on your Site. You get lots of free back links that way.
And if you genuinely want to increase your site traffic for the most affordable low cost rates buy PPC Advertising on Anoox, it cannot be beaten since it it only non profit search engine & social media.

You can also buy targetted traffic on SEO sites that offer services. I had great success with a few programs on MB and the pricing is good, for just an individual or even a business. So far it's worked great for me, spin my site known as interwebs advertising is my favorite and cheapest service, https://a.monsterbacklinks.com/linkin/565051/Traffic/384777/100K-Web-Traffic-To-Your-Website-Blog-or-Affiliate-Link

This is not unlike what does Jaybe Online (ExactSeek), where you buy traffic in bulk of visitors. The most important is on the page that you linked to :
"Each Visit Duration: 10 Seconds - 180 Seconds"

I did purchase such a program before, and the results are not very convincing in terms of sales. Anecdotal. People don't spend enough time on the site to be any good, unless one sells casino stuff in the big numbers.

I rather go for qualified clicks such as Anoox provides.

Agree with Mitch_Bu. Avoid these sites that promise low cost Traffic but cannot explain how and why they have any traffic! I mean you have to give real valuable free services and have a massive community and user base to have real valuable traffic. And that is why i also agree with MB that when it comes to low cost really effective traffic, that this anoox not profit social search engine is a GOD sent for small businesses. Now got to get back to work while attending to my 5 year old :)

Sorry, I did not mean to give you a Thumbs up since you are promoting one of these SCAM click sites :(

It's not always about the sales if you just want to promote your site to viewers as a way to start off a traffic source, cheap back links, or even build an audience to get more traffic. And the site isn't a scam site as the moderators and administrators are serious about their business model. You should research seoclerks before you jump to assumptions.

Yes, I totally agree with 1st part of your comment. And that is why I am here, since Anoox gives me/us, many ways to get free traffic based on how helpfull and engaged we are.
2nd, that site has gone from SPAM site to being not even accessible as Chrome says that it is unreachabe and may be an attack site

Put your URL everywhere you contribute. It never hurts. Usually in the signature, such as
http://CheckWriter-Printer.com yours truly site. Best of all, such posts will improve your ranking with major search engines.

Another venue that may pay your rent is Amazon.com. Whatever you sell, try your luck in the biggest store in the west world. For physical stuff, Market Place is great. For software, their App Store does great for Windows and Android. Don't forget to submit each of your amazon pages to such a submission site as
http://www.freewebsubmission.com/

It is through them I discovered Anoox.

They say built it, and they'll come. That was the case in 1996 when I started. Now you got to elbow with millions of other sites. It requires efforts to be seen.

Peddle your stuff everywhere you go. You never know. Make Facebook page. Participate in well known Tweet channels related to what you sell.

- Make sure you get 4-5 keywords right, and apply the principles found in https://static.googleusercontent.com/media/www.google.com/en//webmasters/docs/search-engine-optimization-starter-guide.pdf and others. Don't try to be everything. If only you get one keyword right, it is already a lot of visitors.

- Dump ripoffs such as adword or bing, where a single click cost $3-5 minimum. Unless you have a huge margin and sell expensive stuff, forget it.

- I am exploring Anoox PPC. With some luck, it will suffice bringing in a lot of TARGETED traffic. It is absolutely no point to have gazillions of passers by if they have no interest in what you sell or promote.

- Something that has less with bringing traffic, than bringing SALES : Don't ruin your own glasswindow. Make sure navigation on your site is easy and logical. Make sure buying is SIMPLE. Make sure contact and phone are there.

- Design your site to be mobile friendly. Today, over 50% of sites visits are made by mobile.

In Summary then:
1- Avoid SEOs, they are the ultimate Snake Oil SCAM, promising what they cannot possibly deliver
2- For free traffic: Answer member Questions here. Show that you show you are either knowledgeable about certain field(s) and/or passionate about Today's issues in an intelligent fact based ways.
3- For Paid traffic, if you got a small budget you will not do better than buying Advertising here on Anoox. If you got large budget, I mean Multi Million Dollars per Month, then go with Google or TV Advertising.
