I have a 600$ budget. My website is 2 months old and has a PR 1. It relates to website designing, work at home jobs and more. What i want you people to help me out is what tactics to consider for promotion of my website?

1. link building(By myself/ outsourcing it to companies by directory submission, article submission and so on)?
2. hire content writers to add unique content for my website?
3. Buy high PR links?
4. others?

Please suggest guys.

My main aim is to increasing traffic and to increase PR

I'm not aware of any paid in-links being given much attention by legitimate sites or spiders, so this would not likely be helpful.

If you don't have must content of interest and are unable to provide this yourself, then, yes, you may need to think about hiring somebody. You won't likely get much in the way of original content within your budget, however, so you might want to think about working on the site yourself.

Links from directories, blogs, etc, seem to be counting for less and less (if anything) these days. Better to first create valuable content, and then contact sites whose users would value your content. (In other words, find sites which are complementary to yours, rather than competing against yours.) If you get useful content, you will get the in-links.

Then keep creating content, and wait. A good site can take months, if not years, to "get off the ground".

The best way to start is plan what you want to do with your website...are u planning to sell something? OR do you have a passion for any topic on which can write and are willing to write? It all depends on the direction u want your website to take. Provide some more info and i can help u with whatever i can.

I have products on my website relating to website designing. Also traffic boosting packages. I am planning to start a blog now. Trying to add some articles written by content providers and then slowly taking it to a review blog

the best paid link which google feels reliable r the one in the yahoo directory. develop your site a bit and make it look very professional before buying a yahoo link.you need to do this coz if ur website is rejected by yahoo directory you will have a tough time getting indexed by yahoo try another link from dmoz, at getafreelancer u can find dmoz editors for $100 or less willing to ad ur website. Another link worth the money is in busness.com. As we can make out google is slowly moving away from relying on link and towards visitor on-site behaviour, so as staple said make your website interesting for your visitors. ultimately search engines follow people. be careful while hiring someone for link building coz if done wrong it will actually hurt your website rankings and credibility in the search engines. Write an interesting article about your business at work.com. If you are not able to OR dont want to write urself, hiring a good copyrighter is worth the money if u can afford it.
When you keep working on ur website over few months, traffic and a good PR WILL follow.
hope this helps.

Your original post:

Your last post:
"I have products on my website relating to website designing. Also traffic boosting packages."

Am I missing something?

I am afraid that sites about web design produced by fairly inexperienced webmasters are two a penny.

Still lots of opportunities for newcomers in this field. I would advice if you are new to web designing just get a hang of it by learning it well from a good resource and then doing some free lance work to get an idea of what exactly in web designing is required as of now..........after that you can surely set up your own website and promote your webdesigning skills. I would like to quote some useful resources but i dont know if posting a link is allowed here.

For traffic only, AdWords is probably the most efficient way to buy it. But I would dedicate a lot of attention to your content (and design, obviously).

Adwords is great for traffic but your site needs to be good enough to convert those visits into sales.

My $0.02, is keep a balance for the overall traffic driven by external sites. Although you may think the more traffic the more sales, there is a limit on the server end, how many connections can keep active at a given time.

Assuming you have an infinite number of funds and assuming you manage to place an ad, or a link, to every other site, you will end up getting 0 sales simply because a single server would not be able to keep up with connections. In which case you would have to distribute the traffic load first, before expanding your marketing campaign.

I have spent the past year on testing ways to promote my site with little money to invest.

While Adwords is always an option, it can get expensive and you need to make sure you convert. A less expensive alternative for me has been Facebook.

The other way to generate traffic is article marketing. I use ezinearticles, and they help me a lot. But the key here is really about the content....write up content for your site post it there first.

Also check out scribd.com--another great resource for posting articles that drive traffic.

isn't article marketing working less than it used to before?
