Best ways to help springboard a new website?

So I've been debating with myself about creating a few more serious websites - ones that I would try to monetise in some way or another. The ideas are only fledgling at the moment but it hasn't stopped me forward thinking about what strategies I would implement to help the site gain momentum quickly.

One aspect I've been particularly interested in is exploring an option like to create the illusion of popularity from an early stage of the site's life. I'm not intending to 'fool' anyone with this but you know the theory about the wisdom of crowds and all that, I feel like people would be more receptive to give a website a chance if it has strong social signals - but these are incredibly hard to get organically with a brand new site.

I wanted to capture the idea in my blog so I don't forget about it!

Eyes on the prize

It's been the case for as long as I can remember...
from studying for my 11+ examination all those
years ago.. Key stage 3s.... GCSEs... A Levels...
BA... MArch.... In fact I think it's getting harder
every single time. I think it's the combination of
my brain becoming less and less spongy as I
march towards my death and a generally and
how easily amused I am by things like turdles.
