With the growth of blogs in the world of online marketing, website creation is changing a lot. Now websites are constantly updated and read more like newspapers than classic websites. There are blogs for every possible niche you could imagine. So how can you cash in on this growing web of blogs? In the following article I am going to talk about guest posting which is a great new way to get a ton of traffic to your website. Keep reading to now the best way to find blogs to guest post on and boost your traffic.
Cheap upfront investment. All you really need is a great domain name and some hosting to start out. You can also spend money on a blog designer to give you a great looking site but you can always do that later or maybe even do it yourself if you have the skills.
Unlike e-mail that just shows up in someone mailbox, blogs must be accessed by the reader – there are, however, ways to list the blogs one wants to visit regularly.
Search for yourself online. Simply go to Google and search for your company, you may be extremely surprised in what you find! I know we were, since the first page of results contained nine links to bad reviews or our competition, while only one was to our website. So if people searched for us online blogs we were not making a good first impression. Google also has “alerts” which can be emailed directly to you as soon as a new result pops up in your name, which was also a big part of what we did. Again, direct someone to manage this day to day and cc everyone when something important comes up. The alerts are very simple to setup and change.
It will always require some effort to actually make money. This is true for every successful Internet Marketer out there, and almost any other really rich person. They had to work to get to that point and become successful. They also had the right tools and knew how to use them. You can’t be successful in anything without the right tools, and that especially goes for internet marketing. Although there’s a lot of bogus internet marketing “systems” out there, a few of those systems actually work and give you the right tools you need to be successful. One of these systems is discussed in my blog, which I’ll include a link to in the resource box. Feel free to check it out after reading this article.
The first important thing you should do is to select your niche. After selection of your niche, you should make a list of your favorites. If you do not have an existing blog, you need to register online. There are free blogs that you can register with. When you are through with the registration, you should select the feel and look. You can personalize the layout of the Website for connections.
Maintenance Free, Spam free and Economical – With so many viruses on the run emails, ezines are filtered out with Spam filters. This is not the case with the blogs, because they are not delivered to the people. Blogs are written and published via downsized blog softwares, which are also very easy to use and maintain. What’s more, you do not have to list your blogs unlike ezines or newsletters on the server, and thereby you can save money on running and maintaining a blog.
Buying backlinks, unless it is a service that hand submits those comments and as I described, is a big waste of your hard-earned money. Whether you pay someone to use it or you use it yourself, automated blogging software is another waste of time and money. Also, leaving the wrong type of comments on the wrong type of blogs will do you more harm than good.
