The easiest thing for you given your age is to take advantage of social networks and get all your friends to add your site to their pages.....Go to addthis.com or sharethis.com get their widget and add to each page on your site....This will make it easy for anyone to bookmark and add your site to their social pages.

Hello Alli

If you would like to increase traffic to your site, then you may want to try the following suggestions:

**Directory Submissions:**

There are numerous directories on the Internet that accept paid and un-paid website submissions. These directories categorize websites by content type, so you will need to choose the best category for what your website provides. You'll generally be able to give your listing a title, short description and link to your website. Don't ever pay someone to "submit your website to 200 directories," this is not looked highly upon by search engines. [BestCatalog.net](http://www.bestcatalog.net/seo_tips/d...) has developed a great list along with directory page rank to get you started.

**Submitting Articles to Article Directories:**

There are many article directories on the Internet that accept unpaid submissions of articles for inclusion in their article database. What you can do is write informative articles about your niche area, submit them to these article directories, and place an Author Bio at the end with a link back to your website. When you submit your articles to an article directory you give other people permission to reprint your article in their Internet publications such as websites, newsletters, blogs etc. as long as the Author Bio is included along with the links back to your website. As people begin to read your articles and reprint them, you will begin to not only get links back to your site, but visitors as well. Here are a few good article directories to get you started: [ideamarketers.com](http://ideamarketers.com/), [ezinearticles.com](http://ezinearticles.com/) and [articlealley.com](http://articlealley.com/).

**Social Networking:**

Social networking sites include sites such as myspace.com, facebook.com and youtube.com, and that is just scratching the surface. This strategy for increasing traffic to your website can be time consuming, as the idea is to basically get "social" with other people using these sites; but the benefits to your website in terms of traffic and links can be outstanding, but staying engaged is a key factor.

**Offline Marketing:**

Don't forget to add your website to your business cards, brochures and print media advertising.

Strategies which will increase traffic to your website will also play into your ranking in the search engines; it's a great cycle to get your website into... more traffic = better rankings and better rankings = more traffic!

May I make a small suggestion - make your images smaller as they take quite a while to load up, they should be not be much bigger than 100Kb anything that is Mb will take longer to load.
Great site though
