Well... You need, at first, AT LEAST about 5 viewers...
You might know that viewers double among viewers...

Some tips are..

Having links from and going onto your website...
Telling people about your website...
Never giving up...
Updating your website often...
Having a memorizable link for your website...

I can also help...
Give or post your link to me... and I will post your link onto mine...

Hope this helps!

Thanks!

I was using Google analytics and I've had about 30 visits and 107 page views. I did all the google coding and everything else, but I can't get more traffic. I have a Digg button, StumbleUpon button, and a link to and from my deviantART account...just no traffic.

Hi Glen

1) Hard work
2) Novel site
3) Make it showcase all the good that Synthasite has to offer (that one is easy)
4) Widget use and placement
5) Unique content laid out in a pleasing manner
6) User friendly
7) This should have come first.... Simply make it what you want it to become and not what you think others do... It is your site and you should be happy with it.
8) Make it a site that you would want to visit
9) Lastly, ask others what they think of your site here in the forums. Your fellow members are your best asset in helping streamline your site.

Everything you need to make it become great is already inside you and in this forum... Read and learn from others my friend. I did...

Happy site building
Ed

Thanks. I've added some widgets. I didn't want things to get too cluttered. I'll try the forums too. Thanks.

Check out my sites "links" page and go to "directory submitter" and download the free program. Lots of great inbound links can be had in a very short time.

Google the type of work you want to get, (I did orlando graphic designers, and up came "freelencedesigners.com" / "topdesignfirms.com" / "designfirms.org" and several others) and look for sites that show up that are classifieds / directories in nature and get listed on them also. (Kudzu.com is another good one that shows up)

A trick I learned from Bengo here on this forum is to put a description above your link when ever you post it somewhere, like this..

orlando florida graphic designer Guido Graphics
http://guidographics.synthasite.com

it tends to show up more often when you google your site's name.

Hope this helps you some, as your work is outstanding!
Peace, bra
Guido

Ooops, I missed Marije's comment. I see she already told you about it. But it is so exciting it bears mentioning twice!

I don't know. I'm just getting started with my site which isn't ready yet - But, everywhere I look everyone suggests Adsence. If you find out, let me know.

Okay...here's another question related to being featured...I saw on the "Overheard" tab that people are using Twitter to post site updates/new sites. I have a twitter site and I've even added synthasite to follow...I posted a tweet with my url and such...how come it doesn't show up on the "Overhead" tab? Also, where is the forum where I can post to everyone my new site?

There might be a delay of a few hours before your tweet shows up in the "Overheard" tab. However, if the word "synthasite" appears in the tweet it will show up when the feed is updated.

You can post in this forum for everyone to view your site.

I did my tweet last night around 10pm EST. In the Overheard tab, the last tweet posted was 18 days ago.

Anyways, check out my site...

Your work is brilliant, Glen. I have a page pertaining to a variety of links, and within that page I have a section for art-based links. I'd be more than happy to add your link to my page. Let me know if you want me to add you. Cheers.

What is your site L.i.G.? I'd like to see it. Another reason why synthasite should work on a site directory of people who have created synthasite websites.
