Blog Traffic Blueprint Week 15

Bizarro Superman and Blog traffic Generation

We’ve now arrived at the 15th edition of our Get More Blog Traffic Blueprint.  So far, we’ve covered a lot of ground in this series, but there’s still some ways to go.  I have burned through a lot of information on generating blog traffic so far in this series, and I still have some more coming. Bizarro Superman and Blog traffic Generation

But after this post I am going to put the series on a short hiatus and discuss a few other topics on for our Wednesday, “Chats.” I will ultimately work my way back to finishing up this series, have no fear.

If you haven’t implemented the blog traffic strategies from this series yet, take some time to go back to the older posts and work on integrating them into your daily routine.  Now,  on to the business at hand…

As a kid I enjoyed comic books.  As an adult I sometimes read science fiction books with “alternate universes,” – don’t worry, I am not going to go all “full nerd” on you with this post (though tempting), I just have one point to make.

In these comic book worlds and alternative reality stories there is one theme you can find fairly frequently: evil opposite twins.  Superman had an evil alternate from “Bizarro World” and many alternate universes stories also featured some sort of evil opposite.

Social Media and Amplify

We have reached the 14th week of our Get More Blog Traffic Blueprint series.  This is a series where we talk about specific strategies you can use to skyrocket your traffic stats.Social Media and Amplify

For today’s post I am going to talk routine and automation.  These are tasks that are quick-quick-like-a-bunny.  They are perfect to either incorporate into a daily routine (taking only a few minutes a day) or to have as part of a package to hand off to an outsourcer.  The one I will speak about is not a  major tool for traffic, but it has an incredible, “bang for your buck” considering the small amount of time it adds to your routine measured against the potential benefit in traffic and links.

The main traffic method we shall discuss today is  “Amplify”.

Amplify is a great social network, that not everyone knows about.  If you are not yet a member of Amplify it is something that is worth joining even without the consideration of using it to “spread the word” about your information.  Like Twitter and Facebook the more you get involved with Amplify the better your results will be.  These social networks are the epitome of karmic balance the more you repost worthy links and connect with others the more of a positive benefit you gain from the system when you DO post your own links.

Get More Blog Traffic Blueprint [Week 12]

Welcome to the 12th edition of the Get More Blog Traffic Blueprint.  This is a weekly series I’ve created specifically designed to help dramatically increase your web stats.

In the last few sessions we’ve covered a lot of social media tactics.  So let’s keep with that trend!  In week 11, we discussed how to create a “mini-commercial” for a YouTube video.  This is an advertisement that goes at the beginning and the end of your video.

The question is what type of content should you create?

Answering this isn’t that simple.  The content really depends on your market.  What works in one niche might not do well in another.  So it’s important to think of different videos you can create in your market.
