Two things you should do as if your life depended upon it:

1.  Solicit feedback from existing users.  Check your referrer logs, etc.
2.  Update, update, update!

The other thing I can suggest is that you should put user-contributed
content up in lights on the site.  This gives others the incentive to
promote your site for you...
