One of the best parts of summer weather is hitting the beach and digging into sand, splashing around and having fun. Promoting your website can be a similar endeavor. Hit the social media sites, dig into driving new visitors to your website and have fun with the process.

Drive Traffic to Your Site

WHSR kicked off June with Lori Soard's article Why Building an Online Community Could Equal Big Profits. There is one thing all people crave and that is interaction with others. Lori touches on this concept and offers ways website owners can build this sense of community that keeps people coming back time and time again. Get specific step-by-step advice on how to build a community.

Once you've built your community, you'll also want to take a look at who is linking to you. Luana Spinetti takes a look at link building from a marketing standpoint in 14 Reasons Link Building Belongs To Marketing (Not SEO Nor Google).

You wouldn't want to forget about social media engagement, either, and Gina Badalaty covers this topic in The Top 7 Mistakes in Google+ Engagement.
