Whether you're new to blogging or an established authority, you want each blog post to draw in traffic over the long term. This is called "stickiness" in the blogosphere. Attract more organic search engine traffic and make your blog stickier by following these four strategies.
Stay on Topic
Write your blog about different angles of a single topic - your niche. Don't throw in unrelated topics, and don't have too many categories. It's better to start a second or third blog if you find your ideas straying from the main point.
For instance, there are dozens of topics under the broad heading of "affiliate marketing." On a blog like this, you wouldn't talk about how to rebuild a carburetor or paint a landscape painting. At the same time, don't write two blog posts about each aspect of affiliate marketing. Instead, write a dozen posts about one aspect: go deeply into your subject so readers view you as an...
Plain and simple, your website needs one thing and one thing only, to get more visits. As basic of an idea as this one happens to be, that is truly the only for sure moneymaker in our business. Coming from an experienced web marketer, if a Webmaster can even stick to that one phrase and make sure that they do not give up on it then success will be inevitable. There are some simple steps that you can take to guarantee the validity of this process but the main concern is your own system that you put in place to monetize the visits.
As with any online business out there on the wild journey of an internet career, there is one main goal that is often hidden from the view of an inexperienced marketer. Page visits are gold here, they entice advertisers, increase your paycheck but most importantly can guarantee your long-term success. If there was a one step quick guide to making millions, that actually worked, then everyone would be doing it and we would all live very...
Once upon a time there was a new social networking site, where ordinary people could connect and almost read into the lives of celebrities... Through careful planning and awesome ideas, Twitter was born! It turns out twitter is actually a super effective way to advertise your website, you just need to know the best reasons behind it, and then you can get going on your own twitter ad campaign.
1. The main reason why Twitter increases your ad revenue on your website is because the people that are going to be following you are your perfectly targeted visitors. These are the people that have visited your website, have enjoyed your content, and have shown their loyalty by clicking the follow button on your name. That is about as far as a customer can go in online terms to show that they love the work you do with your website, if you have tons of followers that are entirely based upon a non-forced system, then you have truly succeeded in creating great content at the...
Take a look at some of the best advertisers in the world: Budweiser, Apple, even Geico. They all play the advertising game; a game where the goal is to get people to fall in love with your brand and give you loyalty based solely upon seeing a television commercial or some form of advertising. Imagine that, if you are able to gain a customer through an advertisement that doesn't even directly explain what you are selling or inform you're soon to be customer of pricing or any type of useful information. One advertiser that falls directly into this category is GoDaddy... if you have ever seen their advertisements on TV it looks like they are basically just selling videos of good looking women, they absolutely never mention that they are just a domain name selling website that doesn't even have that great of a service. Essentially they guarantee thousands to millions of viewers just based upon the fact that these people like their commercials and then once...
Driving search traffic to your website can be tricky. When you want to get search results in an already crowded market space you have a couple of options. You can pay someone for traffic, try to drum up traffic on your own by trading links or using other forms of promotion, or you can be smart and use another site's high page rank in order to promote your links. By attaching your site to a larger and more popular site through links in, embedded or otherwise you essentially reap much of the rewards of having an expensive and time consuming SEO strategy while avoiding doing all of that mind numbing and tedious work building links and tweaking and optimizing every single word in an article. The following guide will teach you how to take advantage of many loopholes that exist in a few of the larger online content providers in order to boost your Google Pagerank.
First you need to identify which websites you are going to use to boost your SEO rankings. There are a few important...
Twitter may have been around a few years, but business and individuals are still finding new ways of using the micro-blogging platform. Twitter allows real-time interaction with customers and business partners, and can be used to solicit instant feedback on new products and services. With the help of your Twitter followers, you can develop these new products into items your customers will love. Other businesses are using Twitter to communicate with their employees and drive customers to short-term sales featuring deep discounts. Here are a few innovative ways companies are using Twitter.
Instant Customer Feedback
Market test your products on Twitter, instead of paying for an expensive focus group. Send links to your followers and get instant feedback on new offerings. If you are developing a website or other online application, followers can test it and tell you about bugs or errors they find.
Interact with your followers as they test and explore....
What do you think of when you go on facebook or twitter? There is the possibility that you believe you are truly going online to check up on your friends, maybe manage the invites and RSVP's to your latest party, or even to just follow a rockstar on twitter. The truth of the matter is that none of these are the main concepts behind websites like twitter or facebook. Let's start off with the easier of the two, facebook in general is seen as the best way to posts pictures of your ski trip to Vermont, or maybe to get in contact with your relatives that live far away in another state or even another country. I am about to reveal to you why facebook is actually just a sophisticated platform for facebook to make money off of advertising, while we can actually essentially cheat the system and use it to make our own profits off of their pre-made program.
Facebook for a long time now has been selling their own PPC campaigns to almost anyone that desires...
How far would you go to boost your website's rankings? Would you pay exurbanite amounts of money? Would you sell-out your websites, would you even go as far as compromising the quality of content on your pages for SEO happy content? Ask any webmaster these days and the answers would surely be surprising... There are not a lot of things that are more important to a website than getting higher on the different ranking systems. The normal ranking system which most web developers look at is the SEO on each page of their website that Google can view and then index into its search parameters. That is an entirely different discussion though, SEO refers to getting organic traffic to your website through the means of Google, which actually works remarkably well if you can rank fairly high for your set of keywords.
This is where the Alexa ranking comes in, while all of your competitors fight over a widely known keyword that is barely even related to your specific field of work,...
An effective business website can improve your business' reputation, attract customers, and illustrate your industry knowledge. A sloppy business website, on the other hand, can reduce your credibility and send customers running to the competition. Thus, it is important that you invest time and money into building a website that showcases your business' skills in a straightforward, easy-to-understand way. Effective website content can do just that.
Your business website should show potential customers why they should do business with you. Showcase your knowledge and skills on your business' website. Include an "About" page that highlights your business' experience. If you run a small company, mention the academic credentials and professional background of your employees. For a larger business, discuss well-known clients, how many years you have been in business, and any professional affiliations your business has....
After setting up a website, possibly buying a domain name and hosting, people often wonder what the next step should be. Normally there is not a specific check list that a website owner can take to make sure their site is on the way to becoming one of the greatest websites of all time. Of course the time and effort put into the site, along with expertise and money invested can have a large effect on a website but there are always other hidden tricks which people often leave out of the equation for too long.
There are many online resources which can help to direct even the newest member of an online niche towards website building tips, but the actual events which will shape the life of your website and make the difference between a site that makes millions and a website that is just barely making enough money to stay afloat is the innovation. This word is often seen when dealing with marketers or companies who know how to create a need for the product they are selling. If you...
