My site at http://www.fictiongalaxy.com has been a great sucess. I know some sites have been boasting 1,000 of new impressions a day, but for me just to have the old ones come back again and again is good enough for me.
Currently I am getting 5 to 10 new signups a day starting at the first of this month. Thousands of visitors and good reviews. There have been a few bugs, but we are slowly coming to terms with them and can hardly wait for the newest versions of Post Nuke Rogue.
I wanted to share with you all the secrets to my success and yes I view it as a success.
#1 - Put your expectations low and you will be surprised with the results.
#2 - Submit to all the search engines of course, but I have searched out the news groups and posted an brief plug for my site. I have also joined alot of yahoo groups and have plugged my community there as well. I also announce when I got an new poll to the yahoo group, this will equal few new signups and visits.
#3 - Keep working, promoting a website is alot of work.
I am sure there are other secrets to the sucess of a website, but I just thought I would share those. I have gotten 105 members and now waiting for an 100 more within a week. Good luck to you all and your own communities.
