I am new to MQL5 community. I have created a robot and want to sell on market for signals.
I read the rules:
16.The Provider shall not use spam to promote Signals both on www.mql5.com website and via third-party services. Upon detection of spam, the Provider's account will be blocked and all his or her Signals will be removed.
I want to create a website and push my customers to my signal page on marketplace.
I'm not into black hat techniques. I want to do this the right way.
What counts as spam so I don't get into trouble and any tips to gain subscribers?
Promotion of the signal (direct promotion or hidden promotion) is prohibited on mql5 forum.You can promote your signal in your profile.
And I just collected some posts/articles/threads which can help you in this sotuation:

Do you sell something on the Market? Are you signal provider? So, just some links about promotion:
Signal widget displays the current information about one signal. Its content is updated automatically.
This is my experience .. I am not signal provider but I am promoting the signal service in general. Why? because this is the great content especially widgets which is updating automatically.

I installed widget (Top Signals) for my google blog in easy way using this link for example so everybody can do it (widget for some particular signal or signals, or widget for some broker). I did not place it on some other websites because I am not a signal provider and I am not market vendor. But I think that google blogs' promotion as a widget (together with simple promotion using facebook, twitter and google+) are fully enough to get some subscribers/clients.
But if some signal provider (or Market vendor) wants to get many subscribers/clients so it may be necessary to go to more quick way - go to the other Metatrader forums to promote your signal or product in direct way - just my experience.

And just want to remind that the promotion of signals and market products is prohibited on the forum sorry.
One way to promote your signal is to create any external blog and place a widget there:
MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 Trading Signals Widgets
