Practical and Effective Way to Promote a New Site
The key to promote a new site on Google is to get your site linked by other sites
which are indexed by Google already.
Google updates the index database every 4 weeks, and now
moves to a continuous update. The Googlebot continuously crawls the Web. The more other
pages linked to your pages, the quicker your site will be indexed. It may take a few days or
4 weeks before your site is indexed into Google.
Find Link Pages Using right search terms on Google can help you find a list
of sites that will likely link to your site. If your site is related to music,
search term Music "add url" or music "add site" will show a list of pages
where you can submit or ask for links. There're many small directories
in each subject area, they always welcome addition of new sites. You should always be able
to find some pages (with PageRank value 4 or higher) related to your site. Make sure that
the url of a site on those pages is used to link to the listing sites. Some directories
link listing sites to a cgi script and that script will redirect visitors to target sites.
This helps directories to track number of hits and will generate traffic to your site as
well. But it won't help boast the PageRank value of your site.

Simply asking questions in the forums will increase the chance of being indexed so long as your site url is
part of your signature files.
Finally, your site is indexed by Google. To generate more traffic from Google is another game called
search engine ranking and search engine optimization
