Creating a Steady Flow of Traffic

creating a steady flow of trafficCreating a Steady Flow of Traffic To Your Blog

There are many ways to create a steady flow of traffic to your website, capture page or anything and that is by being consistent. If you do nothing else, posting to a blog in a consistent manner will generate just about all of the traffic you will ever need.

This is something that many bloggers and marketers that depend on the SERPs have known and practice.

One of the most successful network marketing bloggers is Ray Higdon. If you look at his blog, rayhigdon.com, you will notice that he posts almost every single day and while many people think that his traffic results are the result of a series of “secret” tips and techniques, for the most part he is just a consistent poster of good content.

So what makes this so-called “good” content?

Good content is any content that people can actually use, content that people in your niche will find value in.

I have created a steady flow of traffic to this blog even though it has been quite some time since I have written a new post. Now since I just stressed how important it is to be consistent you may be wondering why it’s been so long since I have posted anything.

Good question.

After the penguin update, yes I was affected, I decided to let this blog “relax” a little and I started working on another blog – markgrahammarketing.com. I am still working on that blog, but I am also ready to start working on this blog again as making money online is a topic that I am VERY interested in and so are many other people.

Now I know that it seems as if I am going in circles here, but the truth is this…

There are very few “secrets” online. Creating a steady flow of traffic to your blog or website is not very difficult, but it does require effort. Rather than continue discussing the ups and downs of posting on this blog or another and why I haven’t been posting as regular as I preach you should, I have decided to make a list of ways of creating a steady flow of traffic to your blog.

Here it goes, Creating a Steady Flow of Traffic with These 5 Methods:

  1. Create great content!
  2. Good SEO
  3. Post on social media sites
  4. Write articles promoting your posts
  5. Produce simple videos promoting your posts and blog(s)

These are just 5 simple tips and while there are many, many more these 5 simple tips, once learned and put into practice, will start driving a ton of traffic to your site.

Real quickly I’ll go through the list and explain them one by one.

Create Great Content

First of all, what is “great” content and who decides what great content really is?

Those that decide what great content is, ultimately, are you readers. The audience you are trying to affect in the first place. Certainly they should be located within your niche and you should do what you can to engage these readers and others out there looking for this information. These are the folks that will be returning to your site looking for more information – any information – that you can provide that will help them with a particular issue whether it be a marketing tip or a proverbial steer in the right direction.

Great content is nothing more than content that offers value to the lives of those that read it, watch it or listen to it. I can talk about the ins and outs of creating this content, but the main thing to remember here is supply the demand that people have and much of the time that is information about how to do a thing or how to do a thing better.

Creating a Steady Flow of Traffic with Good SEO

SEO, or search engine optimization, is important. SEO might not be the MOST important aspect of creating a steady flow of traffic to your site, but it’s pretty damn important.

Whether you like it or not, search engines work a certain way and you may as well learn how to write in a manner that will benefit you through higher rankings in the search engines.

I’m not going to go into the specifics of good seo, my advice is that you download a plugin to your WordPress blog called “wordpress seo by Yoast.”

Creating a Steady Flow of Traffic with Facebook, Twitter and Other Social Media Sites

Social media is big and there are many reasons for this – of course, I’m not going into that, but I am going to discuss why social media is becoming more and more important to you as a marketer and someone that is interested in creating a steady flow of traffic to your blog.

Let’s just start with the search engines results page or SERPs.

Now, more than ever, Google gives a lot more credence to sites with a lot of social activity or buzz about them. That is to say that your articles will carry a lot more weight when they are shared on facebook and google+ as well as tweeted about. This is part of the result of the Google Penguin update and to be honest, I like it.

It is very easy for you to get out there and post to social media sites and to stimulate some of that sharing. I recommend you check into linksalpha, hootsuite and some other social media management tools.

Articles and Blog Traffic

Write articles and post them to credible, authoritative article directories. While I can go into the importance of uploading articles to ezinearticles and other similar sites just understand that these sites are good for backlinks and generating a bit of traffic to your site.

Creating a Steady Flow of Traffic with YouTube

You can start creating a steady flow of traffic, on auto-pilot, by producing videos and if you are not already involved in creating videos start doing so immediately. Videos are popular and are pretty simple to create. I have programs out there that rely heavily on my video traffic

YouTube is not the only video hosting site out there either. Make sure that you post your videos to Vimeo, Dailymotion and MetaCafe. There are other directories out there, but you can search for those yourself.

Make sure that you take the time to learn good SEO techniques for video as well.

Like your blog, the key to your success with videos is going to hinge on how consistent you are in creating and uploading your videos to your preferred hosting site. I recommend that you put up a new video at least twice a week.

Use these 5 tips for creating a steady flow of traffic and you will start seeing results within a short period of time.

Welcome to Wazzub

If you haven’t heard, there is a new search engine, Wazzub, that some folks are trying to get up and running. And now you are probably wondering why I am writing this blog post about another search engine out there? Because with this search engine there is the potential to make a LOT of money!

Wazzub

Learning About Wazzub

OK, so now I might have an ear to listen to me on this one…well and eye to read this anyway, but really, how in the world am I going to make money with a search engine in the first place? This is a good question, but before I answer it let me also let you in on yet another positive aspect of this whole Wazzub search engine project and that is this…it is FREE to join! Free now, free forever!

So we have this opportunity to sign up with a new search engine, for free, promote it and get paid to do so. My main question and I bet yours is too is how do you make money with this program if it has a free sign up? Basically it’s a pretty simple idea, it’s called revenue sharing.

Yep, not a new idea by any stretch of the imagination. As Internet marketers we go out and promote a Wazzub link for others to sign up with, this is free you just need a referral link, and we in turn help these folks promote their link as well. The key is to try and get as many people as we can to sign up for the search engine and they will pay us for the referrals – FOR LIFE!

Wazzub: More Than A Few Bucks

That’s right, now we’re not just talking about generating a quick income, we are talking about getting paid $1.00 per person that we have referred 5 levels deep! This can add up to a ton of money very quickly.

Wazzub

Now, I know you are sitting there thinking that Wazzub is just another flash in the pan site that is here today and gone tomorrow, you may be right, but here’s the deal as I see it. They have a free sign up, it’s a simple email only sign up. If at this point you feel uncomfortable signing up with your email, then go and get a new one…they really aren’t that hard to generate and put that in the referral link box.

Wazzub: How This Works

Once you place an email in the box and click enter, you will receive your own referral link and a link to the opportunity blog. Start placing your Wazzub referral link everywhere that you can. The key here is to drive as many folks to sign up as possible. You can get as many as you want and you will receive credit for these folks as well as people 5 levels deep. Now…keep up here…once the “recruiting” period shuts down (March 31st, 2012) then you will no longer be able to add people to your group, but this is when you will start receiving your $1.00 per person.

I know I’m not really making this easier just yet, but stay with me a couple of minutes more. If you signed up 5 folks and they signed up 5 and so on and so on, you would receive $3,905.00 per month, every month. If you signed up 10 people and they all did the same 5 levels deep then you would earn $111,110.00 per month.

Wazzub

Wazzub: Advertising Revenue Sharing

Once again, where does the money come from for signing up to Wazzub? The money comes from advertising and is a way for Wazzub to pay through revenue sharing. Did you get that? Revenue sharing! That is how Wazzub pays those of us that help build the user base. 50% goes to the folks that refer others and 50% goes to the stockholders.

So, here is the deal, get as many people signed up with Wazzub as you can!
