Free Places to Promote Your Website Online

Updated: Apr 10, 2018

Whether you’ve already taken your business online or still looking for a simple solution to create a professional website, you probably already know that promoting your website is extremely crucial to your business success.




If you have no previous experience with website promotion, you’re likely feeling frustrated and confused. Promoting your website isn’t only simple, it can also be done without even spending a penny!


Check out the links below for a list of opportunities to promote your website online for free! With the right time and effort, you can find yourself attracting a whole new set of clients to your informative and great looking website!


Search Engines

It may or may not surprise you to hear that the majority of traffic from the internet is derived from search engines today. With that said, search engines should be the first place that you should turn to promote your online presence. Your first priority is to ensure that search engines know that your website exists by submitting your link directly to them. Once that’s out of the way, the best way to improve your search engine presence is by taking the time to improve your SEO.


Right now, the search engines that generate the most traffic are:

  • Google

  • Yahoo

  • Bing


Online Directories:

Today the modern day Yellow Pages is online directories that are where potential clients turn to find business solutions. Adding your site to online directories is extremely important as it greatly improves your website’s SEO by linking back to your website. When submitting your website, make sure to include important details like your location and business category so that your website will appear in sub-categories where new and potential clients can easily find you.

Social Link Building

Social sites are where many web surfers spend the majority of their online time. Linking your content on popular social sites is a great way to put your business in the face of your known audience, and also a fantastic opportunity to gain quality backlinks by exposing your brand to broader audiences.

  • Facebook Pages

  • Youtube

  • * More than a social network, Youtube is one of the most searched business directory in America

  • Google +

  • Pinterest

  • Foursquare

  • Polyvore

  • Stumble Upon

  • Reddit

  • Diigo


Blogging Platform / Article Submission

Blogging platforms and article-submission sites are a terrific way to promote your site. All you need to do is write an original article related to your business and submit it to these sites. While it’s important to keep these articles informative, try to keep your tone friendly. Articles that sounds genuinely well-intentioned and have a less aggressive marketing tone, will likely draw more interest to your website. Blogs and articles are also great for promoting link building for SEO benefits.

  • Blogger

  • *Owned by Google, Blogger is hardwired with Google’s Adsense advertising program.

  • Tumblr

  • Postach.io

  • SlideShare

  • Digg


Photo Sharing

Similarly to social network sites like Pinterest and Polyvore, photo sharing sites give you the opportunity to display visual content that is related to your business and can be used to refer and link back to your website. Photo sharing sites are not for photographers alone – any business can use these sites to post images of events, coworkers, news and everything in between, as long as it’s connected to your business.

  • Picasa

  • *Another Google Integrated site, sharing and tagging on this site come with additional SEO benefits.

  • Flickr

  • Photobucket
