    There are plenty of ways.

    1. Tell a friend.
    2. Advertise on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc.
    3. Visit other sites that allows site promotions.
    4. Post in blog comments and include a link back to here.
    5. Create a few pretty banners to advertise with.
    6. Affiliate with other small Nintendo sites.
    7. Vote for us in topsite lists (see the bottom of any page for the topsite banners).

    It's all a matter of how much work and effort one wants to put into it, but the more that is done, the more we can get the word out about Nintendo Realm. (Y)

    I figure--(Sorry for bumping)--with the site's rebirth, that we should take another shot at figuring out ways to PROMOTE NintendoRealm...

    sure we have Twitter, FB, and Youtube--but not everyone has access, OR uses these social sites....

    LOL Some one could create an ad for tv & advertise this place. I've seen a bunch of ads for beezit.com as of late so it's not a far fetched idea to do. Problem is I have no idea what an ad like that might run. D:

    Not to copy wiipals but one way to get members here is to have all of the active memebrs bump ads on youtube so it gets more views; bump activity via facebook for the NR site as well as the twitter sites. The more attention given to a few of these places can also get new members in.

    My first post here is still a good route to go on, tell friends, comment on Nintendo blogs with a link back here, affiliate with other Nintendo forums, etc. It takes some time, but it does work. :nod:

    well, the only way(that I know of) to get it UP on Google--is by having alot of Content/Members(stats)--and for people to "vote" for it in those "TOP NINTENDO SITES", etc.--at the bottom of each page

    The site is search engine friendly as best it can be, at one point we were ranking well on the 2nd page in Google for "wii friend codes".

    What really helps is linking back to here from other websites, the more links, the more site views we get. (Y)

    We could always start advertising as a Wii and Mobile Web-friendly site....
    saying there aren't too many websites SPECIFICALLY made to work 100% w/ the Wii internet channel...

    Plus, this site works great on Smartphones

    Idk why not just get some one who's job it is to promote this forum every day? I've been on a bunch of websites that do that. They have a whole staff either dedicated to advertising; Designing, or other things. If anything it sounds like Spiral needs to start hiring peeps. lmao
