Hey Anton,

While indirectly related to making-money, I think it would fit better in the Webmaster Issues forum where such topics have been covered in the past.

So, I'm moving it there: http://www.very-cool-stuff.com/ubb/f...r=3&start=here

I was taking a look at your website, and it is somewhat confusing. Your website content seems a little broad.

I believe your site is just supposed to be mostly affliate links to sites that sell stuff, hence the name Best Buy. But on the left navigation bar of your main page you have world news, and what's new(which is really what's new in technology, not what's new w/ your site). Also you have links to sites such as family point and others that have no products that your visitor can buy.

But that's beside the point, you asked about promoting a site such as yours. Your site is in a very competetive category and competing against big names such as amazon and mysimon (which is a shopping comparison engine). Also there are a bunch of other people who also have sites like yours, which are made up soely of just affliate links(but I have to say, your site looks pretty profesional).

In order for you to get visitors, you have to first be able to offer them something more than just links. If you know how, you could make a shopping comparison engine, or do reviews about which site has the best deals, is the most reliable, delivers on time...

After that, you should submit to search engines(but don't expect too much traffic from them) and probally start looking to buy some advertising. I would recommend buying keywords on goto such as books, clothes...
Depending on your budget, you could advertise in lots of other places too, such as clickxchange, and cj.com
