Get more traffic, participate in forums

In my last post I provided some information about link building. Continuing the same topic I am dedicating this post to same “link building”. As I discussed before link building or getting back links from websites plays a major role in getting google PR and good ranking thus obviously more traffic.

A good way to get quality traffic and also better links at pages with good PR and ranks is to participate in forums of your niche. Forums do not allow usually to anyone to post their links. You first need to be their registered user, that is free and then participate actively in them. Some forums have conditions to post your link as your signature or in threads are to stay as their active user for at least 7 days or post at least 50 posts in threads. Signatures are the best ways to keep your links go all over the forum and only active user that follow the guideline can add their signature in end of their posts. Always keep in mind to follow the guide lines of forums and post something useful in it. It’s not the way only to get better link but also provides new idea to write about and more over free of cost tips to get more visitors.

Here I am listing some forums where I participate actively. These forums have good PR and google ranks. These are according to my niche but you can find out forums of your niche by easily putting some search in search engines like seo forums, management forums etc.

Digitalpoint forum – This forum is fastest growing forum in SEO and having good Pr, google and alexa ranks. You have to be a active user for 7 days to be able to add your links in your signature.

V7N forum – This is one of the oldest forums and provides nice and informative stuff. It also has good Pr, google and alexa ranks. You need to post at least 50 post to be able to add your links in your signature.

SEOchat forum – This is a good forum for beginners in online world.

How to do link building

Link building is a important task to make your blog or website popular. It attracts users as well as search engine rankings for your blog or websites gets affected positively by this. Among many ways to increase your blog or website’s links on internet, one popular way is to submit your blog to different directories. I have already provided some lists of blog directories where you can submit your blog just for free.

One important thing to mark here is, how much link building should be done in a day. Submitting hundreds of links a day to directories is quite not a better thing. Search engines takes these as spams. Although some SEO people recommends to place 2-3 links per day, but it’s better to submit 10-20 links per day to directories, as directories never lists you at the time you submits your link. They take some time to list you and hence automatically making your 2-3 links adding itself per day.

In case of forums or blog comments you should take care of not to spam. Always write something relevant to the topic on forums and comment wisely on blogs. I hope these tips will help you in better link building.

How to do link marketing or link baiting

To To make popular any blog or website, it’s very important to go for some link popularity efforts. Now you may think, what is link popularity or link baiting. Google always loves those website or blogs, which gets more relevant links from other sites and preferably one way links. So the more will your links on other website, more will be your link popularity. Link baiting is thus the process of getting links on other websites and blogs for your blog or website.
Some of the methods for getting link popularity are:

  • Commenting on blogs
  • SMO
  • Sending Link requests
  • Contributing in Forums

A powerful way to get one-way backlinks is by posting comments on blogs and leaving your link in there. You don't want to spam the blogs though because most owners check on their comments these days. So post something valuable and then post up your anchor text link back to your site. Blogs that are relevant to your niche and website work best always. Same things continues with other methods also.

Do SMO bring more traffic

Today I am going to write about one of the most interesting topics. It is about Social Media Optimization or SMO. SMO is the newly generated term in the field of search engine marketing and promotion. SMO is all about promoting your websites and blogs through Social Medias on net like RSS feeds videos and photo sharing, forums, social networking sites as facebook and social bookmarking sites as addthis. Biggest advantage of SMO is that it makes a way to mouth publicity where you are promoting not through friends or family but through the use of networking.

Forums: In this, you have to participate by answering question and asking some. Always add your blog or website URL at the bottom of your message as signature. Forums help you to bring quality traffic i.e. interested visitors. Participate in those forums which are related to your site or blog content. You can search for forums by putting a search in search engines.

Social Networking Sites: You can easily sign up in these sites and become a member. Search out for the group in these sites which matches your blog or website. Join as much group as you can. Keep talking to people and promote your site and blog there.

Social Bookmarking Sites: These are the sites by which you can add a button of bookmark or RSS feed, on your blog or website so that people, who are users of these sites, can bookmark your site to stay updated with content and coming back to your site or blog without any problem. This simply increases your number of loyal visitors and hence money. I have explained earlier in my post about RSS feeds.

Audio/video/photo sharing: You can share all this media content through websites like picasa

Here is the list of social networking sites that you can use to understand more.

Promote virally by one click

After telling you things about bringing your blog up and how to write it better, in my earlier post. Today, I will tell u a mix of things which directly touches the money. From very starting of your blog ,you will not get many visitors or I should say ,very less visitors who might be not so interested in clicking on your ads. Don’t get depressed, its just start, keep patience and keep writing regularly. One hour is not so big thing to consume to get a monthly earning of thousands of dollars. But still you need some boosting up ways to increase your traffic so go for feedburner.

Feedburner is another RSS or XML feed publishing tool which can help you out to get much more visitors. One more advantage to use feedburner is that it is directly connected to google. Means ,if you have blogger, typepad or blogspot account than  you can include feedburner gadgets and feed subscribing tools in your blog very easily, without messing up with HTML codes. You just need to sign up in feedburner and check out the available tools. Choose your tool like feedreader or subscriber and choose which blog service you are using. Feed burner will send you to login page of your blog service provider and you can add it just after signing up.

Advantages from feedburner :

1.      It provides you stats of people coming on your blog like how many came and subscribed.

2.      It provides you live stats i.e. people presently using your blog and which feed readers they are using.

3.      It provides site stats. Means from where traffic is coming on your blog, people are clicking on which links on your blog and about page views. This thing helps you in checking out your efforts and making more organized efforts.

4.      If you enable one of its option “ping shot”  than after every post you publish, it sends your blog feeds automatically to major feed subscribers like technorati, blogline etc.

5.      You can put some promotional and stats gadgets like feedcount, subscribe a reader and many more, provided by feedburner and easy to add in your blog. Feedcount shows the number of people subscribed to your feeds on your blog. If you have really good number of people subscribed to your blog, you would surely like to show this to othersJ. It’s promotional also as people feels by this, that your blog is popular one and they should subscribe it.

6.      And yes, one more thing you can choose from number of web aggregator icons option to subscribe for feed from here. It really attracts visitors.

So make it to help your blog run everywhere virally and enjoy. In next post I will tell you, how gadgets can be helpful in site and blog promotion. Promotion is necessary always, because it brings more visitors and hence more money.

Promote blog easily by RSS

After my previous post on promoting blog, I am going to tell you about a much effective tool which increase your number of loyal visitors i.e. more quality traffic and money. This tool is RSS or XML feed. RSS or XML feeds makes magic in making people bring back and keep interested in your blog or website. All you need to do is to post regularly.

RSS is a format for syndicating news and the content of news-like sites, including major news sites like Wired, news-oriented community sites like Slashdot, and personal weblogs. But it's not for news only. Pretty much anything that can be broken down into discrete items can be syndicated via RSS: the "recent changes" page of a wiki, the revision history of a book, updates in a website or a blog.. Once information about each item is in RSS format, an RSS-aware program can check the feed for changes and react to the changes in an appropriate way. You can add a widget or tool for RSS feed in your blog by some feed supporting sites like feedburner, technorati, feedblitz etc. Blogspot provides itself as a widget, a RSS subscriber tool in it. You can simply add it by entering in your edit layout section and then inside add a widget section.

RSS-aware programs called news aggregators are popular in the weblogging community. Many weblogs make content available in RSS. A news aggregator can help you keep up with all your favorite weblogs by checking their RSS feeds and displaying new items from each of them. Some of easy to use aggregators are as follows. All these are compatible with most of the operating systems.

1.      Feedview, a Firefox extension

2.      NewsFox, a Firefox extension

3.      Sage, a Firefox extension

4.      OperaMail ( M2)

5.      Blogbridge

6.      Bottomfeeder

7.      Juice

8.      Mozilla thunderbird

9.      RSSOwl

10.  Thinfeeder

11.  Safari

12.  Windows live mail

13. Google Chrome

So let people subscriber now, add now and go on.

Promoting your blog

It is not enough to write a blog and keep waiting for visitors to be there, and increase your traffic. You have to put some efforts to increase your traffic to gain more clicks on your ad and obviously more earning. Just one hour a day and you can bring immense traffic on your blog. Here are the steps for promoting your blog.

  1. Bring some links on your blog from better sites. You can make your keywords or any informative phrase, a link to a website having more information about that topic. This will not divert your traffic but help people to get most information about that topic and increase your goodwill as informative blog and finally bringing you more traffic and more money.
  2. One more linking is from different feed and blog sites. These sites provide you image link on your blog, on clicking which a visitor can easily subscribe your blog. Such websites are technorati, blogline etc. You need to sign up with these and put their links on your blog. This way, visitors already using these bloging sites subscribes directly to your blog. This increases your regular visitors which is a key to continuous traffic.
  3. Keep visiting and commenting other blog. Yes right guess.., one more way to linking J .Commenting increases your linking on blog and also makes other bloggers to visit your blog. Inbound links* helps to increase your PR* and better ranking for your blog.

All these ways I have explained helps in both things, increase your search engine ranking and more traffic. These ways are not only helpful in promotion and marketing of your blog but also for the websites. Better search engine ranking always helps you in getting more visitors than any other way. So keep working for better. 

*PR and Inbound Links – PR in better known as page rank. It is the way of Google to rank pages. This way, it counts the inbound links i.e. links placed on other websites or blog of that website or blog. And hence provide a better PR for them. One thing to keep in mind is that it doesn’t mean you can put your links on any of the website. Website with better PR and ranks can only help you in getting good PR. PR do not plays a big role but you can feel satisfy to see how Google is  looking on your blog.

  3. Start you post in your blog and put your content there.
  4. Try to add more images and videos. Like if you are writing about some place visited by you than put 50 % images and remaining description for that place. People like to watch more than reading on and on.
  5. Put links for other sites also which can provide more information about that topic in the content of your blog. 4-5 links would be enough for one post. This outbound linking helps you in the promotion of your blog. I will explain in detail about “how to promote blogs” in next post.
