The best part of website is that it is known by both humans and search engines. If these two doesn't see or know your website, then you don't have a website. In this Article, I will show you how to pass the message (Your website contents) across the Internet.
I have list of websites that we are going to analyze how they work and how they will help you to spread the message across the world. I have about 40 websites you can post your contents without violating their TOS.
The good news is that you can send your topics to all this websites at once through ping.fm.
Let me introduce ping.fm first and how it works.
Ping.fm is a free social networking and micro-blogging web service that enables users to post to multiple social networks simultaneously.

That includes the mighty Facebook Wall, MySpace, Hi5, Photobucket, Google Buzz, Facebook Pages, LinkedIn, Delicious and many more...
I personally use ping.fm with conduit. Conduit
