Search engines

Even if you can expect search engines to find your website at one point, you can accelerate that by submitting your website to the following places:

7
Yahoo

44

Don't forget the social networks

If you invest enough time on social networks, you will definitively see traffic from them.

As it takes time to get followers or friends, you should start as soon as possible!

Twitter
Tweet your website with a picture and a description to submit it. You can use hashtag but you will need targeted followers to get some visits. Ads are very expensive.
4
Facebook
Post a link to your website, with a picture, on facebook. Facebook is a good traffic generator - again, if you have friends.
1
Google+
Google+ seems to bring some traffic even if you have no or little followers. Google+ can expose your website in the search results before your website is actually indexed by Google.
1K
StumbleUpon
StumbleUpon sounds as the perfect tool for your website to be seen - in fact it sounds as we need to be lucky to get visits.
19
Reddit
You don't need followers to get traffic from Reddit - but your website really need to be unique and valuable at first look. Probably some luck is required as well.
69
Pinterest
Pinterest is well ranked for images. Post your website with a nice, unique image. The image is more important than the description you can join.
342
Medium
Medium will not work for everyone, but if you can write something valuable around your website, Medium has the potential to put you on the map.
22
LinkedIn
If you have a Linked-In account, don't hesitate to publish a post about your website. You need connections to capture some traffic - or paid ads.
18
Instagram
Instagram is also efficient if you have followers. The image with your post will be important.

What next?

It takes from a week to 3 months before you get full benefit of the submissions.

Once your website is submitted, it is a good idea to write and submit a press release.

Once your website is and your press-release are submitted, you can focus on the links to individual web pages.
