Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
Create a youtube channel and start posting tech related videos. Do reviews of items, describe how to do networking, get a screen capture program and do demonstrations on how to certain things.
Submit on Technorati, mybloglog
Guys and gals, do yall realize that is the 21st century? If you are serious about staying on the cutting edge of site promotion, you need to be posting videos, publishing podcast,,,, and staying current with the times.
You can submit to all of those sites that nobody has ever heard of, or you can harness the power of sites like youtube.
This is one of my original videos, and its receiving 2,000 views in 2 days.

Real promotion power comes from producing your own content, and then putting in front of your targeted audience. You need to go to them, do not wait on them to come to you.
Is your targeted audience hanging out on places like rss feed directories and article submission sites? Or are they on youtube, myspace, facebook,,,, and other popular sites?
I promote my tech blog in both general blog directories and tech blog directories. Don't be afraid to use recip. blog directories that are actually popular such as blogratings.com, topblogarea.com and blogtoplist.com. I like fulemyblog.com, too. Additionally, I use a sitemap plug-in so that every time I create a new entry, it is automatically added to the sitemap and submitted to Google and Yahoo!. I also use the sitemap: tag in robots.txt just in case any other search engines who wander by happen to look for that. It doesn't hurt to e-mail webmasters of other tech sites and ask for a link exchange. The worst things that can happen are they say no or ignore you.
