    No so uncommon, I think many A-List bloggers are doing exactly this. Additionally, blog promotion can go through creating mobile app or Facebook application. Of course this is very chaotic strategy, but it might succeed and become viral.

  8. Creating a theme or plugin can be a source of promotion not only through traffic but also through backlinks and it also helps a person create a brand for itself.

    And I have seen that hosting a free giveaway or e-books like you said is a very quick and effective way of promoting a site.

    Nicely written and great info Ranuka :)
