and Many more ways.

Many free ways and many paid ways.

If you have something of value people will find you.

If you blog make sure it is original content and you will get traffic.

I'd also recommend learning a bit about SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Traffic from search engines is generally pretty high quality too.

Just like considering off line advertising > you need to start with a solid foundation of knowing who your customers are (define your target market)

from there, you can think about how to get your message about your product/service/website in front of the right people > people who want what you are selling AND have the means to buy it..

so where does your target market hang out? say you are promoting a gamer site... where would gamers see your message? ... now you aren't really looking for a few 'lookers' for your site, you want to drive massive traffic for in Internet Marketing, it may take hundreds or even thousands of hits to make a sale or get a sign up.

So go where the gamers hang out to promote your product, related product sites, post ads in newsletters gamers read, post signature links in gamer related forums, use social media to get your message out if appropriate, put up flyers on local bulletin boards and in public places, place business cards where gamers are likely to see them, use Traffic Exchanges geared towards gaming or looks/feels like a game, place free ads in appropriate online posting sites (CL), pin it, write great gamer related articles and submit to sites with signature link ..... on and on....

see how much easier it is to figure out good advertising options once you think like your buyers? to me, it makes no sense what-so-ever to just start a promoting campaign in the wrong places. Pick 4 or 5 methods to advertise & do them regularly, track what you do, and when something works, place more time & effort in that area.

For me the best way to promote your website is by starting a YouTube channel. I was hesitant to do it at first but I am so glad that I did. Not only has it increased traffic in more ways than I ever thought possible but it also gives you credibility because you have a face to your blog and let are letting others know that you are a real person and it has increased my earnings. I only wished that I would have done this sooner. Just sharing my own personal experience.

1. use social media to put great content out there and make quality connections with those in your niche
2. write guest blog posts
3. submit a press release
4. learn seo and keyword research- so so important!
5. Get backlinks from writing articles on hubpages or squidoo
6. join forums that relate to your niche
7. Post videos to YouTube and link back to your site
