    Using directories such as Qype, Freeindex and Yelp - if you build up a profile then it does seem to lead to quite high volumes of traffic... M.

    Make sure backlinks are very very varied. If you use one keyword set, your site will just show up for that and eventually get banned for it as it's spam.

    I've been advised to change my signature to Driving School Swords instead of having my web address which is topclass.ie. I thought that having my web address as the signature helped create a link? Thanks for any advice

    You need to produce a 'keyworded hyperlink'. Just fixed it for you. Your current sig is written here in 'BB' code:

    [ url=http://topclass.ie]Swords Driving School[/url ] (without the gaps). :)

    Hi Mark

    I've been trying to create hyper links on face book but it seems to show up as the code. I've been putting in DublinDrivingSchool
    Can you see where I'm going wrong ? Is it possible to have these links on facebook?

    36 - Lots of people have mentioned the main Western social media sites, but if you're targeting internationally then you have to remember that Facebook, Twitter etc. don't rein supreme all over the world!

    Here are the top sites in some other countries:

    China - Weibo, Renren, Tencent, QZone, Youku Tudou, iQiyi and PPS.

    Russia - VK, Rutube, Odnoklassniki, MoiMir, Moikrug.ru, and Livejournal.ru

    36. Pick up the phone and start ringing your target audience. Then email them something for free that is on your website.
