There are millions of Web sites trying to get listed in the top 20 spots of the major search engines. That amounts to a lot of competition! I say if you can't get listed at the top, indirectly get to the top.

How do you do this? Look up the top 20 Web sites on the major search engines under the keywords and phrases people would find your Web site. The key then would be to advertise on those Web sites.

The most expensive way would be to buy ad space on those Web sites. If you don't want to spend any money, you could use the seven strategies below. These strategies may not apply to every Web site.

  1. Participate on the discussion boards. You could post questions, answer other peoples' questions, and join in on conversations. Just include your signature file and link at the end of your messages.

  2. Ask the Web site owner if he/she would like a free e-book to giveaway to his/her visitors. You could have him/her link to your Web site or include your ad in the free e-book.

  3. Submit content to the Web site. You could write articles for his/her Web site and include your resource box and link at the end of the article. If he/she publishes it, you'll indirectly be at the top of the search engines.

  4. Write an excellent article review of the Web site, products or services. Then, publish the review on your Web site. Email the Web site owner and tell him or her about it. He/she may link to your Web site so his/her visitors read it.

  5. Ask the owner of the Web site if he/she would want to trade advertising. If you don't get as much traffic as he/she does, you could throw in some extra incentives.

  6. Propose a cross promotion deal with the Web site. You both could promote each other's products or services together in one package deal. This means a mention and link back to your Web site.

  7. Give the Web site a testimonial for the product or service. Include a little text link for your Web site with the testimonial. You never know; it could end up on his/her ad copy.
