Improving Web TrafficI’m almost done with my travels for the summer (Just one more trip to Mississippi.) Once that’s done, I’m dedicating my time to a simple goal: Get more traffic to the Steve Scott Site.

Now, I need a strategy if I want to increase traffic. That’s why I’ve been reading a lot of content on this subject. In today’s post, I’d like to mention some of the best resources I’ve found:

1) 5 Ways Google Plus can Help Affiliate Marketing: On my blog, Peter wrote a detailed analysis of how to use the brand-new Google+ site. Some people have been raving about this service. Read this post to learn how it works and how to add it to your Internet business.

2) Web Traffic: Yes, this is a link to a blog; not a piece of content. But I want to give an overall recommendation of Ana’s Traffic Generation Cafe. This is one of my favorite destinations for staying current on web traffic strategies. So check out her latest articles and subscribe to her to RSS Feed for future updates. [click to continue…]

Today’s guest post is really timely.  In the last week, I’ve signed up for the new Google Plus service.  But I’m not really sure what it is and how to use it.  Fortunately Peter Mugi does a great job of explaining how to use this site…

Google Plus (Google+) is Google’s latest attempt at social network.  It has become a hot talk on the internet (it accounted for 35% of tweeted news links in the week immediately after it’s launch in June 2011).

I like Google+ not only because it’s a great social networking service, but also since it’s an amazingly powerful tool for all bloggers and affiliate marketers.  In just a few days, it boosted the visitor count of one of my blogs and assisted me to prepare a niche marketing campaign I’m going to launch soon.

In this article I’ll show you all bloggers and affiliate marketers how you could benefit from Google+.  Before I introduce it, let’s have a look at some solid data. [click to continue…]

Bad Internet Marketing AdviceAt one point, we’ve all asked for advice about online business tips and  Internet marketing tools.  This is especially true when we’re starting out.  Unfortunately there’s a lot of bad information being given by the supposed Internet gurus.  Following this advice can cost you both time and money.

Today I’d like to talk about 19 faulty recommendations I’ve seen in the last few years.  Some of them are due to misinformation.  Others are outright lies told by people trying to sell their particular product.

Read each to learn what advice might be ruining your online business…

I have to admit something.  In the last few months, I’ve experienced a mild case of Writer’s Block.  Sure there have been numerous content ideas for this blog.  But none have been on par with the massive value posts I used to publish every Monday.

Internet Business SuccessI want to get back to creating lengthy, ‘how-to’ articles.  The problem is I don’t know what people want.   So I need your help…

Please answer this question:

“What would help increase YOUR success on the Internet?”

This should be a specific strategy you’d like to learn.  Or an obstacle that’s holding you back.  Just think about the one thing that prevents you from getting to the next level.  Then post it in the comment section below. [click to continue…]

I’d like to start with a humble apology.  I really haven’t posted much in the last month.  There are many excuses I could make.  Instead I’ll simply say that I wanted to enjoy a month-long trip in Europe; without feeling pressure to do work.

Darth VaderyThis leads us to the topic for today’s article…

Much has been said about the concept of the Internet Lifestyle.  For some, it seems like a dream come true.  With a laptop and a wireless connection you can work from any spot in the world.  Take a look at any advertisement for a ‘home based business’ product.  Odds are you’ll see shots of ordinary folks “working” while living in a warm, tropical paradise.

With all that said, I think there’s a dark side to this lifestyle.  What’s not talked about are the many hassles that occur while running a business out of a backpack.

I’ve traveled for about 11 months in the last two years.  That’s 46% of my time working while being on the road.  During this time I’ve learned that are certain negatives to this lifestyle: [click to continue…]
