I first started creating web pages on Yahoo GeoCities, Tripod, etc. back in early 2000s. It was fun. Later, I tried blogging platforms like Blogger.com and WordPress.org and also started creating HTML web pages without any coding skills (thanks to Microsoft FrontPage). And that’s how I started web development. Now with the advent of web 2.0 people want more. People no longer like static HTML web pages with dull designs. They want rich features with a great user experience. That’s how blogging platforms became massively popular. I get a lot of emails (because of this Make Money Writing blog post) from my readers asking for a platform to share their articles or work online. And I used to recommend a blog — a WordPress blog to be more specific. But then I realized that a blog may not be relevant for everyone as things changes from one person to another. If you’re a technology enthusiast then starting a blog makes sense. But if you’re a writer and want to … [Read more...] about 51 Blogging And Publishing Platforms To Showcase Your Awesomeness
Traffic exchange sites are those in which you visit other people’s sites and they visits yours. Examples are Traffic Center and EasyHits4U. Let me elaborate. You sign up on these sites. Then you are asked to open a few sites(by entering some captcha) for some time(15 to 30 seconds) and then visit another. This process continues until you close the tab or window. Just like you open the sites, the other people open your site and you get hundreds of visitors. The main thing is, the more websites you open, the more traffic you get. I used it twice or thrice and my blog got thousands of visits in just a week but then I just left it because of the reviews which were against these type of sites. Today, it just struck my mind and I thought that I should warn the bloggers, eespecially new bloggers that these websites are not of much use and why you shouldn’t use them. Read on! 1. Fake visits Yes, the visits are not real. It is often that users use bots for these sites(that … [Read more...] about Why You Shouldn’t Use Traffic Exchange Sites?
Blogging is one of the most powerful modern marketing medium out there. The only problem is — you cannot expect overnight success. Why? Because it’s a marathon and not just a sprint! So, always go term! “I’ve worked in marketing since 1987 and nothing I have used, studied or witnessed, comes close to the marketing power of an effective blog. Period.” — Jim Connolly When I compiled the blog marketing resources I mentioned that I do not have a blog promotion strategy. Still, I wanted to share my blogging strategy with you and realized that it’s better to publish a new blog post. So, that’s how I come up with this topic and it’s all about how I increased my organic traffic from 250 to 1,500 to 3,000 without spending a penny. When I first started blogging at Minterest, back in 2007, I didn’t have a content strategy and I chose random topics — like tech tips and news, affiliate reviews, … [Read more...] about How I Increased My Organic Traffic By 500% In 10 Months (And Doubled Them In A Year)
