One of the absolute best ways to generate free web traffic online is by owning a blog. The best thing about a blog is that anyone can create it easily, and it doesn’t cost a dime to get started with one. Blogs can be great traffic generation ‘weapons’ as I will show you soon in this article.
Just putting your blog online blogs is not enough. After all, there are many millions of blogs on the web right now, so unless your blog is on a high-traffic site, you may not get readers unless you advertise. You can easily advertise your blog without spending a cent by mentioning your blog in your emails and web pages or newsletters. You can also enter in online competitions – if your blog wins a prize you are more likely to get a constant flow of traffic to your blog. You can also ask ezines and other content providers to review your blog, which will also draw readers.
Making money with blogs also means keeping your content fresh. You need to update your blog virtually daily. Visitors like consistency. Once they find a blog they like, they come back often to see what is going on. Good bloggers have very loyal followers. They also click on ads. Be sure you are posting fresh content regularly so that your visitors are compelled to find out what happens next. This will increase your chances of making money with blogs.
If you have a niche blog that provides useful information you can attract targeted traffic from the search engines. With this traffic you find people that are searching for the solution to a problem and, since they are actively looking for information on your topic, they will be more likely to click through to an advertisers site. Let the advertiser try to further monetize the traffic by selling a product or service. You simply act as a middle man between the search engine and advertiser and provide the client with traffic.
The basics of blog posting are quite simple the idea is that you type up some quality content for someone’s blog. In return for helping the blog owner out with some good quality content you’ll get a link back to your website. Not only will this help you to get backlinks for SEO but it will also drive a ton of traffic to your site. Popular Q&A have thousands of RSS readers that are notified every time a blog post goes up. If they like your content they will check out your website. Guest posting isn’t a huge time cost but it can be an amazing way to get a ton of quality traffic.
But in my experience blogging is over looked by most internet marketers, and online business owners as well for that matter, because they have to ‘work’ at producing quality and reader relevant content on a regular basis. How do I know blogs are overlooked? Easy… The internet marketing students and online business owners I regularly coach never discuss blogging! Sure they’ll talk all day about PPC, Google slap, SEO… but never blogging.
So here is the real deal, fix your spiritual life before you go on a journey to fix any other area of your life. Didn’t Jesus say to first seek the kingdom and everything else shall be added? Where and how did we miss or forget that? Let’s get it right, fix your spirit. Plain and simple. We can beat around the bush another 30 years but in the end there it is again. The problem is in the spirit realm. Get in touch with your maker, make your peace with Him and get back to God Almighty. He has been waiting for you.
