In the past I have run several websites and have tried several marketing schemes to get people to come to the sites. Let me list what I have done and then ask my question:
1. Google Pay-per-click
3. Posting on open forums
5. Paying to have my site posted on Google, Yahoo, MSN, Etc.
6. Paying for advertising my site in blue at the top of a search engine, such as, Google and Yahoo.
7. Posting on website forums that come up first in a Google search.
8. Using expensive software for posting your site in search engines.
I have tried several different methods to get my site out there as you can see and the results have always been minimal.
Could you please advise me into what else I could do or what I am doing wrong?
I know the sites I have are professional and products and services people want. I just cannot generate the traffic I want using the current methods I listed above?
Can you help?
