Hello everyone!


I'm trying to figure out great way to promote my site: Yattatachi.com in ways that would help it be known but not with the wrong methods to make us look like we are spammers.

I am already participating in a lot of FB groups which seems to be a bit successful. I was wondering what other ways that I have not tried that would be beneficial.

Thank you!

youtube - make sure it's not "in-your-face" promotion. inform them about the site either at the beginning or at the end of the video
and put a link to the site in the description. if the video is well done, it will attract more people, and more traffic to your site.

twitter for quick updates

That's a great suggestion. I was looking into doing something like that but it's just a matter of finding time to do it.

Make sure you have a twitter too. And have it listed. A youtube channel maybe. I see you've got a facebook going.

Also holy crap that website is nice.

I'm still looking for other solutions. I looked into Reddit but I don't want to come off as spamming/self-promoting.

Any more suggestions?

Have you thought of joining any Anime webrings? Shared promotion of each other's pages among fans can help build up a presence. Also usenet anime groups are a great place to post (when allowed). Places specifically where you're promoting to the fandom you target and not just randomly. Also have you submitted to search engines and optimized your search for relevant keywords? Make sure to only optomize using relevant keywords and key phrases but use as many of them as possible.

I have a minor background of SEO related subjects. My career field is UX Visual Design. I would know how to promote other topics, but as far as promoting for a Japanese related editorial site, I feel like I'm missing something to pull in and keep fans. Also I didn't know Webrings still existed. I always thought them to be now just links to hentai and broken links.

I will be going to Anime North Texas next weekend, so hopefully, I will be able to help promote it there possibly.

That unfortunately would be ridiculously expensive.
