Directories, Meme Trackers & Social Bookmarking

This tip is an oldie but goodie: submit your site to DMOZ and other directories that allow free submissions.

Submit your site to paid directories. Another oldie. Just remember that quality matters.

Create your own topical directory about your field of interest. Obviously link to your own site, deeplinking to important content where possible. Of course, if you make it into a truly useful resource, it will attract links on its own.

Tag related sites on sites like When people find the sites you tag to be interesting or timely they may follow the trail back to your site.

If you create something that is of great quality make sure you ask a few friends to tag it for you. If your site gets on the front page of Digg or on the popular list, hundreds more bloggers will see your site, and potentially link to it.

Look at meme trackers to see what ideas are spreading. If you write about popular spreading ideas with plenty of original content (and link to some of the original resources), your site may get listed as a source on the meme tracker site.
