Some examples of good services to bookmark your website are Digg, Stumbleupon, Delicious, Chime-in, and Friendfeed.
Artist forumsThere are many online! Simply do a search on Google for “artist forums” to find lots of great artist communities.
First, read the specific rules for the artist forum. Then, simply look for your settings to add a signature line.
After this is completed, introduce yourself in the new user thread. If you post there regularly, relationships will be forged in the art community, and many will visit your art website through the art forum.
On other art blogsWhen you leave a comment at another blog, you can sometimes insert your website instead of a name. If visitors like what you have to say, they may want to know more about the one who wrote it, and visit your art blog or website.
In your email sig lineIf you have your art website link there, whenever you send out an email to someone, they may see it at the bottom of your emails.
Many people may visit your art site in this way, especially the contacts where you regularly send emails.
Through link exchanges with related artist websitesMany visitors to your website may arrive from the other art site.

Getting your website ranked on AlexaDownload the Alexa Toolbar.
This link is for the Chrome version, but Firefox and Internet Explorer versions are available at that site too (near the bottom of the page).
With the Alexa Toolbar installed, everytime you visit a website, it gets ranked lower on Alexa.
The lower the Alexa rank the better!
This can work to your advantage, since visiting your own website also counts toward this rating.
Go here to download the Alexa toolbar. Go through the steps of installing it. Usually the rating will not be seen right away.
Go about your normal routine of surfing and visiting your own art site regularly. After a few days you should see a website rating there, but it’s usually very high in the beginning.
Over time it will steadily decrease, and your website will become much more popular just by using Alexa.
This is highly recommended!
These are just a few of the ways of sharing your artist website with others, and making it more popular for art promotion.
