So how should we go about promoting the site, once it's live? I recognize some faces from the forums so obviously the links in our forum sigs worked, and I'm sure the link we placed on the Wiki did some good to, but that's not nearly enough. What other options can we come up with?
Including a link at bitcoin.org would be great. If the website proves to be helpful and builds a good community with high quality answers, we have a good chance of being accepted there. They used to link the bitcontalk forums.
I noticed that reddit also has some links on the right side. Does anyone know who is responsible for the reddit channel? Maybe we could get a "Bitcoin Q&A" link next to the "Bitcoin Forum".
I think it would also be an excellent idea to have a channel that tweets interesting questions from the site with a link to them. This alone would go a long way to getting people better informed about BitCoin, and I plan to do it if no one else does.
I think the biggest promotion will be simply in curating a site that is useful, drama and clutter free, and asks and answers interesting and important questions. I like the twitter idea, but AFAIK much SE traffic is driven by both search engines and regular users who return to browse.
