How have you promoted this site in the past?
I haven’t really promoted it much. Just a few directory submissions (10 – 15), and the site is in my forum signature at DP. I got a link to it from a friends PR 3 site. That’s why it has PR 2 now.

Going forward how do you intend to promote this site?
I would love to submit it to more directories, do link exchanges, add lots of more content and pages to it, and gradually build upon the PR and backlinks. I’ve made the site completely Search Engine Friendly and hope to achieve high rankings for niche keywords easily on Search Engines like Google, Yahoo and MSN.
