Promoting your new website to reach wider audiences is essential for generating leads online.
Firstly, you need to find the best websites that allow you to highlight your site’s URL in some way. This can be quite time consuming, but we understand that you’re very busy – so we’ve done the work for you!
Below is a compiled list of 25 great places for promoting your online content. These links will help you build an online presence that your business deserves.
Some are much easier than others, requiring just a simple URL submission. Others need some more in-depth planning, but the best part – all are completely free!
Online Directories for Businesses
Online directories are great as they cover a wide range of audiences. The process is pretty much the same throughout these directories – you submit your website’s URL, as well as additional information about your business or organization.
Take a look at these directories that we recommend:
- Google My Business
- Bing Places
- Yellow Pages
- Submit Express
- Super Pages
- EZ Local
- Merchant Circle
- Advertise local
- Entire Web

Social Media and User-Generated Content
Social media is a godsend to businesses. We’ve obviously heard of the big guns, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, but are you taking advantage of the other platforms available?
They are many advantages of Pinterest, for instance – especially for fitness businesses. You can also submit user-generated guides and tutorials to platforms such as WikiHow.
The links below can all prove extremely useful for promoting your website. All you need to do is explore the ways in which they do.
Social Bookmarking and Curating
Social bookmarking is a great way to have people talking about your business and services, as well as providing others with solutions via your blog. You could submit a link to the main page as well as to individual pages, products, posts, images etc. These platforms then circulate your content to their audience base and drive traffic into your site, while also helping to boost your SEO by connecting your links to textual descriptive content.
Unleashing your business to the world, online, is a continuous process, but it’s essential to driving traffic to your website.
Take your time to research the above websites, get to know how they work and start adding your content and submitting your URL’s to start building backlinks and being found by more people online.
