    link directories, free engine submissions, post it on free advertising sections on forums

    if you can get text links, the more links and the more content you have available on your site - keywords etc the better the search engine crawling is going to be. = more results = more hits

    I think you are promoting it just by posting it here -- good start! :p

    Just curious, not SEO related, but what made you decide to get in to such an expensive and crowded vertical like image hosting??

    Well due to all the social networking sites out. My friend and i have dediced to launch a few sites together. He has a site called uploadyourpic.com , (still needs some work though) but we decided to combine sites and that i would host like all the uploadyourpic.com images. I have my own server already so its not that hard to host the images.

    Thanks,

    Hi. I think that it will take more then one month to start getting hits from google/yahoo. Seo is long term way. And first time can be changed for SEM.

    SEO is always a good investment especially if you want more and top visibility from the engines.

    Yours is a touch niche. It would require more than SEO at the start to have a stable amount of traffic. I would suggest that you diversify your marketing efforts - and consider SEO as just one of them

    Building backlinks is the key factor.

    Write articles, and submit them to article directories.
    Submit your site to free directories.
    Social bookmarking sites.
    comment blogs
    etc

    First include link in your signature this will help a lot.
    Try to posting advertise in various webmaster forums and social networking sites.

    You have a premium plan also so put some affiliate program for that.

    I think that you definitely need an image on your home page, but that's just me.

    If we put aside the design and the looks of the site, I can say that you will be alright if you start using social bookmarks as a tool for advertising.

    Here's a list of bookmarking sites for you. Hope they help you.

    1. Submit it to top search engines.
    2. Submit to major directories.
    3. Provide some nice features which others don't have.
    4. Try to get a fast server if possible as most of the image hosting sites suck at this area.
    5. Take part in forums and add your site as signature.

    I agree with Biju above. This is a highly competitive market with big competitors like imageshack and others.
