Introduction to Traffic

Really, there is absolutely nothing technical about traffic. On a basic level, it’s just the flow of people to and from your website. Of course, that alone is of completely crucial importance because your traffic, as a marketer, will also be your potential customers.

Needless to say, you want as much traffic as possible for this very reason. Unfortunately, at this juncture many people start to encounter some problems because in order to get traffic, you cannot just sit back once you have a website up.

No, there must be promotion through at least one avenue, although more is always welcome.

On top of that, merely having a constant flow of people visiting your website is not necessarily going to do you a lot of good. For best effect, the traffic that you need to harness must be as targeted as possible.

Summing it up: What you want, and what you need to succeed in any internet marketing venture are sources of targeted traffic.
What is Targeted Traffic?

One of the best ways to explain targeted traffic is through this example:

Assuming you had a website that is centered on the dog grooming niche. It’d undoubtedly be a place where your visitors could check out various techniques of dog grooming, learn about some of the common problems when grooming dogs, and so on.

Now, if you somehow ended up getting a ton of traffic, but it all came from people looking for alien conspiracy theories, well… you’d undoubtedly notice that most of your visitors just leave your website immediately since it is not what they were looking for.

Admittedly, that is a slightly wild example, but it serves to illustrate the point fairly well. Even if your visitors were looking for something more closely related to your niche, such as dog training tips, or dog healthcare tips; the end result would be the same once they discover that you are not offering what they want.

Due to this, you want the traffic that does get to your website to consist of people who actually want to learn about dog grooming and are genuinely interested in it. If you can get a steady stream of such people flowing in, then without a doubt your conversion rate would be higher.

Actually, you could conceivably obtain traffic that is even more targeted.

Assuming you have monetized your blog to sell eBooks about dog grooming, then if the traffic that goes to your website consists of mostly people who already intend to buy resources about dog grooming – well, that would be very ideal.

At the end of the day, the more tightly focused and targeted your traffic is, the greater your results.
How to Start Generating Traffic?

All too often, a website does not get traffic simply because there are no real and reliable efforts carried out to do so. Sometimes, this is because of a lack of knowledge as to how to go about it, but most times, it is more due to the habit of overanalyzing the issue and not taking action.

What is constantly not realized is that even if the action taken is not perfect, some action is far better than no action at all.

Best advice as far as generating traffic is concerned is therefore to pick something, and stick with it. Then, once you’re done, pick something else and stick with that too. This way, at very least you’ll end up with a couple of well developed streams of traffic, which may not be perfect, but will still end up bringing in visitors.

Let’s look at some of the best sources of traffic that you should be tapping into:

A lot of professional bloggers have been hit by this since last year (2008), some were even hit as early as late 2007. Joe’s post is a good example of how it was affected.

The whole problogging income primarily comes from 2 sources, one is income from ads, and the other is income from sales/leads (affiliate, cpa). Even if one is being paid to post a review, a link, or being paid by a blog network, at the end of the line, it is most probably tied down to one of those 2 income sources.

People nowadays have a limited ability to pay for goods and services. Some even can’t pay their house loans and thus there are a lot of foreclosures going on. The increase in bad debts causes institutions to lose money and decrease their income.

Less income translates to less spending, and money traditionally spent for advertising is spent somewhere else. This loss of advertising budget directly affects the blogging industry. Less advertisers means less income for bloggers.

In the same way, money used for spending goods also scaled down. People buying expensive brands settle for house brands. Instead of buying the “nice to have”, people began sticking to “must haves”.
Affiliate marketing was also affected. Affiliates of products under “nice to haves” experience a loss in income.

However, in any change, there are opportunities that open. People began thinking of ways to earn extra.

Check out the increase in people searching for “make money” in Google (NASDAQ: GOOG)

New niches open, and some niches suffers, the key is to adapt to these changes. One needs to rethink their strategy and keep on building money making websites and blogs. Diversify income sources, and learn how to thrive in such an environment.

In the last post, I discussed about the self sustaining, self-updating blog.  Today I’ll write about a new blog business model (strategy).   While some bloggers have success in monetizing self-updating blogs, others build a huge business by just focusing on one big blog.

We all hear the words “do not place all your eggs in one basket”,  but others have a different mantra.  Find the right basket, put you eggs in that basket and watch it closely.

For some bloggers, this has worked pretty well.   Some of the critical aspects on how a single blog can become successful is by creating a community behind the blog.   It is important to have frequent blog updates and it has to engage people to write comments.

One must also visit similar themed blogs and network with other blog owners. It is not enough to just build it and expect people to come.  One must also socialize and get out there and mingle with like minded people and become “visible” to your potential blog visitors.

It is also critical to “brand” yourself as a specialist, someone knowledgeable in your niche.

Should you want to implement such a strategy here’s a list of activities you need to do.

1. Find out what your passion is, or something you are good at.

2. Check out if it is a good niche to make money on.

If you are passionate about frog gigging, making a blog out of it may not be profitable.  So find something that you are passionate about, knowledgeable at, and yet it is a potentially profitable niche.

To find out if its potentially profitable, find out if there are products, ebooks, affiliate programs that cater to that niche?  If there is, then it could probably be a good niche.

3. Make a list of all blogs and forums on that niche.

4. Start making about 5 very very good blog posts which will serve as your primary content (or pillar articles as termed by Yaro Starak).  These posts must contain information that when people read it, they will feel that they need to bookmark it for future reference.

5. Visit the list of blogs and forums and become visible.  Create comments, blog posts, and  bring the comments and discussion to your blog by using trackbacks.

6. Learn about SEO

7. Learn about link building

8. Learn about Web2.0, social bookmarks, social networks.

9. Buy ebooks about problogging, SEO, internet marketing and learn from experts, what works and what doesn’t.

I don’t see the reason why people are so cheap with regards to  paying for great knowledge and information about something that will make them money.   People spend thousands of dollars for school and college education so they can get jobs.  Why scrimp on great tools and materials about internet marketing and problogging and SEO?  Wanna make money online?  Embrace the fact that one needs to learn a few things not taught in school.

I personally see it as “tuition or school fees”.

10.  Be consistent.  Don’t just exert 100% of your time during the first month or two.  Always give it your best shot for a minimum of 6 months and see what happens after that.

Today, I want to write about Blog business models.   There are a couple of Blog business models and structure out there that people do to make money blogging.

The creative and lazy bloggers way is to create self sustaining blogs.  I mean, think about it,  not all blogs can earn thousands of dollars.  Some blogs might just earn $10 a month.  The idea is to create many of these $10 a month blogs to create a $1000 a month portfolio.

One of the big obstacles in doing this is the heavy workload in consistently creating content for these blogs.  So some people think about creating an auto-updating blog.  The way it is being done is to use other people’s content.  There are a lot of RSS feeds out there and usually what people do is to use these content and somewhat automatically post these to their blogs.

Using RSS feeds might have some consequences as your blog might be seen as splogs.  There are blogs however that allow you to use their RSS feeds and content.  Just look at their terms of use or copyright terms.   You need to know a bit about creative commons and which blogs allows people to use their content in exchange for attribution.

Once you have a system in place that automatically posts multiple RSS feeds on different blogs, all that has to be done is monetize it.   It would be best to keep on doing backlink building to raise the PageRank of these blogs.

Monetization techniques normally used is adsense, inlinks, and affiliate products.

Article sites are still, stickiness wise, one of the single best ways to drive traffic and build a name as a expert, all at the same time.  So how does this tie to your blog?

Well, for a start, if you’re blogging on the same topic as you’re writing content on, you should have a fairly good niche to promote into – and can use any of your longer, more coherent posts as article content.  But if you want it to work really well, there are a couple of steps you MUST follow.

1)    Make sure your article is coherent.  Blog posts, by their nature are supposed to be less informal than the standard ‘article’ – like you’re having an intimate conversation with a group of friends, instead of a more impersonal discussion with your readers, but at the same time,  the best blog posts make TERRIBLE articles.  So a blog post that is also going to be used on article submission sites should be both interesting, and slightly more ‘formal’ than standard blog posts.
2)    Post it on your blog, and add your resource box at the end – you can make it clear that its a free reprint if you want, or you can simply post it in a category for your reprints.  That way, you can offer a feed of your reprints too, and include the link in your resource box.  Also include the permalink to the post itself in your post – which means you will need to edit the post after posting the first time.
3)    Wait a month – in that month, submit the article to any bookmarking sites, and ensure that you maximize its impact by encouraging your readers to ‘vote’ for it too.
4)    Ensure your post is in the search engines by searching for the first line of your article.  If its not in the search engines, work on getting it there – read up on site maps and other products designed to get you in the search engines.
5)    Submit your content to a maximum of 10 reprint sites.  Make sure your resource box doesn’t break any of their rules, and make sure that you leave comments OPEN on these posts (if you close them ordinarily.
Following these five steps won’t guarantee your success in using article marketing, but they will eliminate most of the serious beginner mistakes people make when submitting to article reprint sites.
