How to Get Traffic

Blogging Part 2

Want to learn how to get more traffic? In the last few blogs I did Creating Money Online and Small Business concept/Ideas I spoke about many ways to make money –  one of them being your actual blog. Many people asked me how? How are others actually capable of making a solid and decent living off blogging. In order to be able to make any kind of money from blogging you’ll need to have readers. Weather you have a massive amount of subscribers or top Google ranking. You just need a high volume of readers to make a decent amount of moula. So let’s discuss:

How to Get Subscribers:

 1. Finding the right topic to Blog about!

When blogging you need to figure out what people are looking to read.  This is where your market research will kick in. You’ll need to pick a target and figure out what they like to read! You can find out in how to pick the right keyword in my next blog post about ‘’Choosing the Right Key Words’’ It’ll demonstrate how to use Google Keyword Tool.

2. Back Links(text links):

People think there’s some crazy formula to make a text link work… news flash: there is none. A back link is quite simple… It takes effect after perhaps 3-6months. What it does is place your blog higher and higher on Google’s pages it’s called ’’Google Ranking’’. Why is it important? Ex: Someone is looking for a nice restaurant to go to – they end up looking online; they type in ‘’Restaurants in Montreal’’ the top 10 most optimization websites with the most back links will pop up on Google’s front page. All you really need to do is copy your URL and start posting it to comments you make on blogs, in online directories, Yahoo Answers, Reddit, and any social media possible ex: Twitter, WordPress, Facebook Linkedin etc

3. Paid Advertising: (For fast results)

If you want fast results then pay Yahoo or Google for the Ads; or you can ask a super popular blog to place and ad on their blog. However, those can be pricey and risky. Monitor the results of the ads – you need to make sure your target is being reached and your getting the results you’re looking for. For example: I use Google Adwords – as a keyword I put ‘’Work’’ I had 91 clicks from just that keyword. Compared to all the rest it was the most successful (when counting clicks) however, I didn’t get that many subscribers (which was my goal) So I realized I could no long use this keyword because it was taking up a lot of money and giving me no results. Whereas ‘’Business Start-ups’’ was giving me everything I needed from comments to subscribers. I hope you get my drift.

4. Original Creative Content/Material:

As I said in my last post this is key because sometimes you can even become popular if you make something original. Take the Youtube celebrity Michael Pham; she started making vblogs on make-up tutorials and is probably making $1 for every 1000 views. One of her videos has 2 711 272 views… that’s $2711/week (she makes videos once a week) . She was one of the first people to create make-up tutorials; not only that her videos were so creative and appealing. She has almost 1 million fans on Facebook.  Think outside the box and be the first to do so; that’s how you’ll get popular.

Those are only a few ways to get loads of subscribers try searching other ways or even creating your own! You do however, need a lot of time or at least have a team of people who can help you get all of these done in a short amount of time for maximum results. Back links are the most difficult in terms of results vs. time.

Let me know how this blog helped you and what you would like to hear next!

  2. Thank you for posting this. For a new blogger like me it’s very useful to learn these things. I didn’t have a clue about back links for example, (but now I’m submitting one, right?) ;) It’s also interesting to read about how to pick the right topic by using key word tools. Thanks again!
