    An Easy Way To Drive Traffic To Your Site

    I’ve been making my living online since the end of 2002 and have enjoyed every second of it, well…almost every second.

    I guess one of the neatest things about making a living online is the people you meet and the willingness to share.

    So I thought I would share a little as well.

    Lately we’ve been doing very well and it is due to the following:

    • wordpress Blogs
    • Social Media Sites
    • Blogger Blogs
    • Squidoo Lens

    Making money online is about finding hungry buyers and convincing them that your product will make their life better, easier, more productive, happier and more profitable if they owned what it is you’re selling.

    It's a combination of the right website design and the right traffic.

    I am going to focus on affiliate sales but the methods will work with anything. Affiliate marketing allows me to focus on marketing and not on:

    o Products
    o Custom Support
    o Merchant Accounts
    o Accepting Payments
    o Shopping Carts
    o Email Systems

    This system is amazingly simple yet incredibly powerful.

    Our Goal Is To Convert As Many Visitors into Buyers as Possible

    We will do this by focusing on a small percent of Google searches that take place each and every day in massive quantities.

    So here's how it works;

    I come with a product to sell and build a website around that product. The top part of the website has a call to action, and is set up just like any other website that would be selling that product.

    Under the call to action is my wordpress blog.

    I add a couple plug-ins like;

    akismet
    all-in-one-seo-pack
    auto-social
    easygravatars
    global-translator
    google-sitemap-generator
    no-ping-wait
    page-link-manager
    pingcrawl
    privacy-policy
    seo-automatic-links
    seo-image
    sociable
    statpress-reloaded
    twitter-feed
    twitter-tools
    wp-auto-tagger
    wp-smilies
    yet-another-related-posts-plugin

    Okay, now the idea is to create profiles on social media sites that will link back to my main site and I also interlink those profiles back and forth to one another. Along with those I also have a number of social bookmarking sites that I bookmark to.

    I try and build enough back links to the site that there is no doubt Google knows about the website, at the same time that is going on I hire someone to add content to the blog.

    We come up with a list of keywords and then we add keywords to those that we feel someone that was about to buy the product would add to those keywords.

    For example;
    Special Offers
    Cheap
    Discount
    Order
    Promotions
    Free Shipping
    Store
    How Much
    Quality
    Best
    Acquiring
    Best Buy
    Good Buys
    Deal

    We have an extremely long list of these types of words that we use.

    The idea is to make about 20 posts per day.

    And so far this has worked great for us and the neat thing is that it’s easy to set up and you can duplicate it over and over again.

    I wanted to get a little more into some of the things you need to do but the post was getting so long I stoped before saying everything I wanted to say.

    One of the things you need to understand is your competition and what your competition is doing.

    There are all types of neat little tools you can use to do this, one of them is a plug-in for Firefox called SEO Quake and it is a pretty neat little plug-in.

    As you search Google this tool can provide information such as:

    • Age of a Domain
    • Pages Indexed in Both Google & Yahoo
    • Number of Other Sites Linking to a Domain

    While understanding your competition is important something that is more important is having a good list of keywords.

    Below is a list of a couple tools you can use to find keywords online for free.

    WordTracker.com

    Free Keyword Suggestion Tool from Wordtracker

    Free Search Term Suggestion Tool by KeywordDiscovery.com

    https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal

    https://www.PayPal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_shop-ext

    eBay

    Shopping.com - Find, Compare, and Buy Anything in Seconds

    Search-based keyword tool

    Google Trends

    The blog posting has worked really well for us this year, as a matter of fact, last year as well.

    I believe I could take an established website turn it into a blog and start making money within a month.

    Of course it needs to be in a good market.

    But the post are the key.

    Thanks,

    I thought I might start posting on the forum again and figured I would start by starting my own thread.

    Hi Janeth, do you mean blog posts? If so are these posts specifically about your product? one product?

    Janet, why do you think the number of posts is so critical? The figure seems large and too fast. Are you picking lower competition/traffic phrases? Is most of your traffic from search engines or other sources?

    Question Re: An Easy Way To Drive Traffic To Your Site

    Janet, Is there any way you could give us an example of what you've got going on here? It sounds like something I'd really like to try on our site, if possible, but I don't understand exactly what it is that you're doing with the blogs, especially when you say "Under the call to action is my wordpress blog." and that you add a couple of plug-ins like "akismet, all-in-one-seo-pack, etc."

    I must say you've grabbed my interest here.
