>With 3.6 million websites and growing, the spiders that crawl the web may never make it to all the sites. Big business has the advertising dollars to promote. Small business does not. If small business does not make it on the web, the web will be ruled by big monopolistic businesses. All suggestions for promotion of a serious business welcome (I know about links/ banner exchange.).what I need to know is the "magic formula". All serious input welcome..e-mail me at lookwhose@aol.com

I don't think there is one magic formula.

I've developed sites for some local businesses and nonprofits, and I'm
combining several promotion strategies --
--submission to the major indexes and search engines
--searching for subject-related websites and sending e-mail to them (For example, I sent e-mail describing a section of http://www.disabilitytraining.com to the Guide at http://specialchildren.about.com)
--press releases, sent both through print and e-mail, to local and regional newspapers
--web cards -- postcards with screenshot of the website and URL, and a brief description, sent to individuals and organizations who might be interested in the topic
--searching for local/regional business directories and submitting the URL & description
