  1. The amount of time one should spend on marketing their website and leveraging SEO depends entirely on the strategies they choose to employ. You see, technically Google does not like it when you 'try' to increase your rankings through artificial means. It is something that is meant to come naturally over time and with common sense. However, there is massive weight given to the social media aspect now, and because of this, I tend to focus the majority of my efforts on sites like Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, and others. Getting content to be shared across these networks is what is really cruci
  2. You can try to inject a link to your website onto a wiki page, there are plenty that could potentially pertain to something some content on your site offers, but remember, vandalism is a reality in that world and on wikis, you may attract the wrong kind of attention. Furthermore, anyone can remove the link back to your site for any reason, it usually only takes a user to register in order to modify any piece of information on there. You may also be grouped with a few less-than-reputable sites, so while it can be useful in moderation, you need to be cautious about where you leave your links.
  3. I would personally not pay any amount of money for forum posting unless I am trying to gain traction with a new forum, website, or blog. In fact, I would go so far as to suggest that is the only use in doing so; to gain traction. Thousands of forums rise and fall each and every day, and often fail after acquiring a certain number of members for the simple reason that the circumstances did not make out the forum to be interesting enough to maintain its users. At this point, one needs to realize when to cut their losses, and try another subject. If you have to pay users to keep the posts on your
  4. Sites like StumbleUpon, where you are given a random array of popular websites, forums, and blogs in particular categories to sift through, can be useful in this endeavor whenever Google or the other search engines fail to meet your needs. I personally use it, and when I 'stumbleupon' a blog or forum in my niches, I tend to relate my posts to the content and be rather thoughtful about it. This way, even if the webmaster cleans out the comments every so often to rid of freeloaders, they often do not mind my contribution with a backlink to my respective site.
  5. Spewing out fresh content on a regular basis is crucial for the SERPs, but another crucial aspect is the quality of the content you provide. If you find yourself fleshing out subpar articles or posts that are less than ideal in favor of rapid posting, your users will probably not share it to social media or become returning visitors, and in the end, you will get less traffic anyway. Taking as much time as you need with your posts is still a good idea nowadays to ensure that your content remains on top. Remember, there are probably thousands upon thousands of sites attempting to do exactly what
  6. There really is no correct, fool-proof, be all end all means of setting up a new website. Oftentimes, unless you are doing work for a client or something, it is completely up to the website owner to determine what he or she wishes to implement or work on, and where. You can do anything from beginning with the content, creating or fitting a website theme, start on social media, or practically anything you want to as the first step. Doing one thing first will by no means deteriorate your efforts in another area, and actually, the sooner you get started, the better. You don't even have to have an
  7. In my humble experience, the only aspect of hosting that has been missing for me were the resources; great tech support, and practically everything else a few hosts I have meandered between still come along as part of the cheap package. You are given less leeway with stressing their systems on shared hosting compared to those who pay for a more expensive shared plan, however, but then I have switched to fixed, monthly transfer and disk space rates with some of the hosts I am with, so this is no longer an issue for me for some of my smaller websites.
  8. Over the years, I have come to find that parking your domain is not necessarily the most useful thing you could do with a site that is just sitting around -- not unless the domain in question is highly coveted and gets many natural hits per day. Even then, it is much more useful to write even a single blog post, article, or whatnot, and attempt to add some streamlined means of acquiring revenue through it. You can expand on it or change the theme in the future...But content is king, as they say.
  9. I do believe having a short(er) domain is only useful for the fact that it is easier on the memory for visitors who may wish to return to your site, but then, I would say that having a memorable or catchy domain that pertains to your site's idea is far more valuable and gets the job done better. For instance, you do not necessarily want the domain 'p19.com' if you are going into the finance or nutritional niche, or any niche you plan to delve in seriously, for that matter. Either way, you are much better off acquiring your clever or catchy domain name rather than an unnecessarily short one bef
  10. What it truly depends on is personal preference. The plain and simple answer to your question is this: if you are stressing your shared or metered hosting with the traffic you are getting, if you are getting any ominous warnings from your website hosting provider, or if you are aiming to establish a prominent, longterm venture, then it would be wise for you to upgrade as soon as you can. You do not have to be making four figures per month to afford a secure VPS. They will cost you anywhere from 10$ per month (at the lowest level) to 100$ or more (for the highest), but by the time you will need
