More on Traffic

A little more info on traffic generation is always a good thing and can always come in useful if you haven’t tried it yet.

One way that has been working for my flagship site, The Honest Way, has been by me getting busy visiting other people’s blogs and leaving pertinent comments in them. Ok, some blogs still stick to the “nofollow” code so there is no back-link to the site. But even so, a lot of people read some of those comments and when you make a good, though-provoking one, some of those people are liable to click your link to see what you write about on your blog!

It’s been working for me, not in huge amounts but it’s all a part of the snowball effect. It starts with a few people coming over out of curiosity and they, in turn may mention my site on their blog if they liked it. That brings a few more interested visitors of whom some do the same. As more and more people visit, more get to hear about the place and the numbers rise.

PS: While we’re on the subject of traffic, a great pointer to how much traffic your site is getting is your Alexa Rank. For someone with the Alexa toolbar, you can see exactly what rank other sites have, so if they tell you they are getting more visitors than you, but their Alexa rank is much lower (bigger number) then you know they’re lying!

There’s a very good reason to get the Alexa toolbar for your browser!

Do Not Join the Blogrush Scam!

Blog Rush, yet another scamming piece of shit designed to get inbound links by the thousands to John Reese’s own site and give the rest of you the finger, is live! Oh wow whee, I’m so NOT impressed by this pile of crap.

But here’s the original blurb I wrote, just to show I was initially taken in too – being only human and all…

John Reese’s BlogRush is live and running in blogs across the world. If you haven’t gotten in on this yet, just to be taken to the FREE sign-up page and get your widget.

Then you can enjoy a boost in your blog’s traffic too!

Update: What bloody traffic boost?

Didn’t see jack shit, so that means all you other peeps that got taken in and STILL have that sap sucking leech of a widget on your blogs didn’t get it! Its a bloody scam, just like all the other scams designed to look like beneficial products to help YOU, when they’re really resigned to help only the owners. Jeez!

As I added to the previous post, don’t waste your time on getting these stupid blogging sidebar widgets and clogging up your page with garbage. Real visitors to your site want to see a clean, easy to read page that has some real-life value. Give visitors value and they’ll return to read more.

Give them garbage and they won’t come back. It’s pretty simple really but amazing how many bloggers just don’t see the obvious. I guess many are just lazy and prefer to let someone’s stupid widget do their interacting for them. Oh hell, what do I care.

In fact, better for me if more bloggers trash their sites with third party sidebar widgets that could get them penalized by Google and clear the way for my clean, uncluttered and hopefully useful sites to climb in the SERPs naturally. Never could understand why wannabe A-listers seem hell bent on telling everyone how they rank or let their traffic secrets out of the bag just so that everyone else can come along and outrank them using their own tricks.
