Question by : Without going into the usually rehashed details and sales pitches–ad nausem–what’s the best way to…?
attract traffic to any number of your own sites?

Repetiveness? Steady spelunking of pork rinds? Gradual self-promotion over the course of the next 20 years?

What?

I know that cyberspace is overloaded with dead sites, and sh*t which would make most people go, “Huh”? and: “Say what…?” and there’s just too much garbage going on about search engines this, and adding your sites to such, and yadda, yadda, yadda…

But what I’ve found is that “buying” space to advertise doesn’t work as well as it should, and quite frankly, finding all those sites which claim “free” is basically a rip off.

So…

Anything creative you could throw in my direction which I hadn’t thought of. It’s not a matter of priority or urgency here. I had just been thinking about this for the last 2 hours now while perusing the message boards on Answers, answering questions and stuff, so I’d thought I’d throw this out and see what people would say.

Not much, apparently 😉 Must have been too long a question for the standard answers user.

You were closest with your third guess – gradual (and consistent) self promotion including two main elements: adding decent content to your sites, and getting links to your sites.

The first element helps with your search engine ranking (yadda yadda) and keeps people coming back and talking about how great your site is to other people.

The second element helps with your search engine ranking (yadda yadda) and keeps new people discovering your site from wherever you are getting links.

Answer by Villa Swap
SEO is a natural process.It takes a lot of efforts from the optimizer to get the website right at the top of the page.
It normally takes 3 to 4 months to get you website to the 3 or 2 page from the 7 th page and then further 2 to 3 months to get it to the first page atleast….SEO can be done at as low as 20,000 INR or 500 USD but I believe that will be basic ERY BASIC SEO.For you to get the result and your optimizer to get some interest 1000 USD to 1200USD every month for 6 months should be good.
