Re: Best way to promote a web site?

I thought I ran across a way to promote a site on Google the other day, now I can not find it??
Do meta's really work?

Re: Best way to promote a web site?

Yes, meta tags generally carry the most weighting when a spider snarfs a website for content. However the algorythm is very complex and designed to demote or ignore sites that try cheap tricks to get higher in the engines.

Best way to promote a website: Television advertising.

Next best is radio and print.

Search engines are critical to the web-savy masses that search but for maximum exposure (you know.. trying to capture the technologically inept such as AOL users) you need to go outside the medium.

Of course I could help you get anything promoted but.. well... then I'd have to charge you.

This can include cheap stunts such as painting your logo on a streaker at a televised sporting event. Of course, that's been done before...

.. is a pretty good way to generate landfill.

It does depend on the market but direct mail Web promotion campaigns can be a real money-sink. Very generalized service such as AOL and MSN would be notable exceptions.

I was kidding, as the whole concept behind a website is personal contact without direct mail . . .
