20 Tips For Getting Your Site Noticed

With billions of blogs and websites vying for eyeballs on the internet, how can you make yours stand out from the crowd? It's no good putting up a portfolio website and hoping that people will just find you. You have to market yourself. This process starts with having a good, easy-to-navigate website and strong content. But it's also about getting out there on the web - interacting, chatting, commenting, advertising, Twittering, Flickring and Facebooking...

There is no magic bullet in terms of site promotion. Instead, boosting your web profile (and ultimately your visitor numbers) is a combination of several tactics that can have long-term benefits. You need to optimise your site so it can be found easily by search engines; tell people where your site is; and provide something good for visitors to read once they get there. What follows are 20 tips designed to help you get your site noticed.
