The first and very important step to make your website a big hit is that you should provide unique contents. Never copy the content of a popular website in a hope that you will make your website popular very soon. There are advantages of providing unique contents. All big popular websites will link back to you if your content is unique and have some importance for their users. More and more popular websites will start linking back to you. Your authority will increase. You will receive more backlinks and hence more Google PageRank value as well as more referral traffic.
