How to increase website traffic - Complete CSS gallery list

Complete CSS gallery list is my small contribution meant to help you increase your traffic in a very natural way. Be warned before reading on – list is rather long, and it will take time to go through it
to submit your website.

What’s the idea behind the list and all CSS gallery concept? For those who don’ know by now, CSS gallery are showcase sites where good designed websites, blogs, or even certain page elements are gathered in one place. So if you have eye catching design but hardly anyone stops by to see it, submitting to galleries might just be what you need.

Most of the galleries have their rules and guides regarding web design, CSS markup or used technology/framework so you can’t submit just anything. Artistic websites on the other hand or, websites that can match the style of these, can easily get on the homepage or be top rated in their respective categories in number of CSS galleries. That in turn brings exposure which transfers into traffic increase, not to mention that it’s always nice to get some additional backlinks.

Website traffic increase can be measured in terms of couple of hundred to couple of thousand visits, at least according to my experience, which are not numbers to be frowned upon for new websites especially since it doesn’t require any special skills. Only problem is that submitting to all CSS galleries from the list can take a while, so it’s probably best to do it when you find some spare time between whatever you’re doing on daily basis – just submit to a few and get on with your work. That way you won’t have large number of backlinks appearing suddenly and you’ll also avoiding hating yourself as submitting to galleries is not something that’s actually inspiring or interesting to do.

To wrap it up for this post – enjoy browsing through galleries because there are really some great stuff out there no matter whether you’re looking for WordPress design inspiration or you just enjoy seeing whats new in the world of web design. And, of course, if you haven’t already submit your site go and do it if you think it deserves it.

If you know of any CSS gallery that is not on the list but deserves a place there please don’t be shy and let us now.

Bonus question: What is total number of CSS Galleries on the list?
