The other way is to send to your online friends of your blog private messages. When you join a social networking website and create or join a network of friends, you should easily communicate with those friends. Try to send each of your friends a private message with information and a link to your blog. This seems to be more effective than just putting a link in your profile or on your fan page.

If you want to promote a local business such as a restaurant you need to find on search engine social media websites particularly on that area. I recommend you to create an account also on the popular social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Orkut, Digg, MySpace. and many others.
