I have just launched a new website www.mytown.ie
You will see this is an Irish community website which is designed to be a portal site for all towns in Ireland.
The site has just launched and is appearing on the Search Engines (but down the rankings). I have got a google PageRank of 1, so I would love to increast that - any ideas?
But the main problem is getting people to visit my site, I get around 20 unique users per day and I want to be getting 200 per day. I have read the 26 step guide but is there anything outside of this that I can do?
I have invested my savings and time into this website and can't afford to do a big Adwords campaign. I need to generate revenue by getting businesses to pay to appear in my business listings, but to justify that I need to be able to proudly say I get X number of users to my site daily/monthly. I guess it is a bit of a vicious circle because: without money I can't advertise -- without traffic I can't get clients -- without clients I can't get money
Does anyone have any ideas on how to break this circle. Also, any feedback on my site (positive or negative) would be greatly appreciated.
