Unfortunately, nobody comes to your website accidentally, maybe one or two web surfers, but this will not solve your problem. If you are at the end of the search engines list with your website's theme, you can wait long years and nothing will change. You need to promote your website in order to increase your page rank and to get organic traffic from the search engines.

These are huge lists of links that may or may not be separated into categories (sometimes there are more than 50 on a single page).

All major search engines now are looking at the relevance of your back links, and it is not about being banned for a bad back link, but it will be discounted, and you waste your time.

This will directly help you increasing your popularity and link building of your website, but apart from these there are many other reasonable methods that help in receiving back the correct and the desired results. And the most dynamic strategy of website promotion of Internet marketing is article marketing.

Article marketing allows you to use a huge variety of keywords related to your website's theme, thing that you can not do in your website, gives you the possibility to get in a multitude of article directories and gain a lot of back links to your website, also your article can be published on several websites by webmasters looking for fresh content, and that brings you more back links and more exposure to your website. Don't forget about the article syndication, which means more back links and more exposure.

All you have to do is to add a link pointing to your website in the resource box of your article, and to submit it to every high page rank article directory. You can also set up a blog for free in Blogger or in WordPress and posting there articles related to your website. There are also social networking sites like Squidoo or HubPages which are very well seen by the search engines and can bring a lot of exposure and back links to your website.
