I don't know what you have on your e-commerce site, but one way to get attention to your site is to show yourself as an expert of what you sell.
How do you do that? Start a blog, who hosts your site? Most hosts have hosting where you can host multiple sites. I myself use fatcow (gotta love that name), hostgator is good, godaddy, siteground, etc. Ask you host if they provide multiple domain hosting and it will be very cheap to start a blog, just buy a domain and start with your multiple domain site. I pay less than $4.00 per month with unlimited domain hosting and unlimited bandwidth.
Write about the items you have in your store, put a link to your store in the blog, do some keyword research.
Another way is by posting to forums dealing with your niche with a link in your signature to your store. Now when I say post to forums, I don't mean just go into posts and say, "Hey, good post," everywhere. That is spamming and is not liked by the administrators or moderators. They want good valuable content for their forum postings. Provide good helpful content and it will make you look great to those asking the question as well as those that read it later.
The same goes with blogs, find those that blog in your niche and leave comments. The same goes for blogs as they do with forums. DO NOT SPAM. Nobody likes a spammer. Spamming will hurt you much more than help you, I promise you that.
