Nice! I like the mobile themes. I've never attempted one. I'll have to take a look.

Hi Imre,

I would like to ask you how you go about promoting your website. I have a new website and pretty much 0 traffic at the moment. Since you have a very successful website I would be interested in knowing how you went about promoting it and building up your website traffic.

Thanks,
Vangelis

Vangelis,

I didn't do anything special. As you can see the site doesn't even has its own domain name, it's just a sub-domain of mine. I guess I picked the right subject, but it was definitely not an overnight success. It's been up for almost 2 years and in the first couple of months I barely had any visitors.

That's when I hired somebody to create 50 themes for the site. Very simple designs, based on the built-in Yii theme and uploaded about 5-10 a month. At this point I saw an overall monthly growth and I realized ppl would come back if I have more themes, so I started making a couple of them "higher" quality based on WordPress or something else. Soon these took over and now they are the most downloaded and viewed themes. I luckily also had some other designers uploading their themes, which was the original goal of the site (thanks for that :)

Of course I'm also running the Yii Radiio podcast, which is the only podcast for the framework and I was constantly linking back from that site.

That's pretty much it. I didn't pay attention to special SEO tricks or anything like that. I probably should have :)

I hope this helps,

Thanks for the information Imre. Very helpful indeed. I'm only in my second month so I should be patient and build up the traffic slowly I guess. It's just a matter of letting more and more people know about it in the relevant forums etc. I like the podcast idea too.

Vangelis,

yes, and if you can get some other sites to link back to your page, that helps a lot too (i think)

Preacher,

I'll answer you here, so it might help others too ...

I just simply turned those WP themes so it would display normally with Yii around it, I didn't overwrite the basic widget themes (ie: CGridWidget etc). These mobile themes are static, meaning that they don't respond depending on your screen size.

I would probably strip the default Yii themes from the widget and use something like this:
http://www.yiiframew...theming-widgets

I'm currently looking into responsive design to see if a theme could be used for mobile devices AND regular browsers ...

I hope this helps ...
