Exclamation Marketing Ideas? Help!

I need some help here!

I was doing this internet marketing for quite some time to improve my website traffic and rankings on the search engine results.
I have done:
* blogging
* directory submission
* article submission
* and forum posting
still the traffic i have is not enough to make my site visible to the top of the search engine results.

Is there other strategies i haven't tried?

How long have you been marketing it?

The snaffu may be that your site is too new. When there are hundreds, possibly thousands of other sites on search engine marketing that have been around for years, and years, and years, and currently rank very well because of that fact, and the content they offer, it's going to be a long time before you start to become recognized.

Maybe you should nicheisize.

In order to get high natural organic search engine traffic, you really need to optimize your web site. I don't see any on page optimization and you don't seem to have very many links. Optimizing the content will allow the search engines to index your web site correctly. Building high quality inbound links will drive your web site to the top of search engine results and that will bring in a great deal of traffic. This is the best marketing I know of.

FYI -- most forums posts which include links are not coded to be counted by the search engines.

It's really tough aiming for higher rankings for your SEO site where there are thousands of other sites out there. It's always a plus to have good contents. Continue with your marketing and search for other solutions, too. Best of luck!

You should try some social media site posts with your main key phrases as the title.

It's not your ranking, exactly, but often times they'll pass through traffic.

The key is to assure your post matches your key phrase. If you're chasing SEO phrases you WILL have a hard time. Another challenge is that Google is specifically diminishing ranking for sites which are primarily driving affiliate traffic.

mktgbiz is right, age and niche -- in other words, chase phrases further down the food chain and you might have some success.

Best of luck.
