A Boost to Blogging

While this blog is dedicated to the perennial question of how to make money online and with a blog in particular, it also has other functions.

One is to bring good, informative and interesting content to its readers. Another is to make money itself for its hard working author, yours truly!

Whilst soldiering onward towards ever greater goals and achieving ever more success along the way, there are other blogs that I am involved in that are every bit as important as this one. Most of my other blogs are centred around the logic of generating their own make money techniques, although there is one very special one that I co-author with my good friend, Monika Mundell (The Writers Manifesto) that I think deserves a plug here at this blog.

This special blog is rapidly growing in popularity thanks mainly to the efforts of it’s authors, Monika and myself for pumping a huge amount of really great, original content into its archives. But it also relies on the input from it’s readers by allowing them to sign-up for free and submit their own guest posts to add to the blog’s interesting content base while gaining additional recognition for themselves as great authors while obtaining valuable links back to their own blogs.

So if you run a blog and feel it needs a boost by attracting extra traffic, then submitting a post for Blogging Web 2.0 is a great way of doing exactly that.

It’s just another one of the many ways of promoting your own blog in order to make money from it. Increasing your own profile and that of your blog should be your primary aim in your ongoing goal to make money from your blog.

So what are you waiting for?

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.

From tiny acorns do giant oaks grow!

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!
