    ok you are familiar with meta tags arn't you???

    well, simply submit your site to google + altavista, and submit your site to all the relevant categorys on http://dmoz.org and then just wait

    also, to motivate people to come back, keep updating, adding new content, etc etc

    hope this helps you out.

    I know what comes to mind when I first saw the nick 'mufc' and I'm hoping the site is related to what I'm thinking

    Spam! That's right, that can of luncheon meat sitting in the fridge can also promote your web site. For very little cost, you can notify unlimited email accounts about your site and receive unlimited hits!

    Seriously though, there's always Adwords from Google.

    1) Google ignores meta tags.
    2) You should submit to only one category at dmoz. There is a "listing change" form from which you can suggest an additional category, after your site has been added. Submitting to multiple categories up front is considered to be "spamming" by dmoz; if you do it you'll likely not be listed in any category.

    A win win point! Content must be good and a forum will bring them back too.

    Admittedly, it's a little untrue, or more precisely it's an oversimplification: they'll index the meta description tag if there's no other text on the page; as in an all-Flash site for example. And of course they use NOARCHIVE, and ROBOTS, and even GOOGLEBOT. But they don't use meta keywords at all -- too easy to spam.
