    I’ve put my site for indexing using google and I have also submitted my site to DMoz after reading this article.

    Please advice me to make my site famous and also to improve the web presence. I am a student and not a business person.

    Thanking You.

    Great information’s, but don’t put Google to index your site, it will take a longer time. It’s better to make another 2-3 blogs(one on blogspot) and write there that you moved on your new domain.
