How Much Traffic Do I Need?

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Someone asked me, “How much traffic do I need in order to earn some decent money online.”  I said, “May be 50 or may be 5000 per day”.

One of the most common questions that many people ask is ab0ut the number of visitors needed to start making money. Well, I would say it depends upon what market you are targeting.

If you get 50 hungry buyers per day you will get instant cash.

On the contrary, if you get 5000 visitors per day just fiddling with their browser for some general knowledge it might take months before you see any cash rolling in.

How to rise above the competition in blogging

Saturday, October 1st, 2011

Technology has become very advanced these days, and in turn changed the way people communicate. This article is great for anyone interested in how blogging has changed society and how you can use it to your advantage.

Make sure you write about things people find interesting and useful. Everyday chores such as vacuuming and washing dishes are something everyone does. But, absent an innovative, engaging method of discussing such topics, you are unlikely to hold visitors’ interest if you talk about them. Select a subject that is sure to appeal to a large group of people. The point of blogging is to make people want to read what you write.

Keep your blog posts short and sweet. Providing the detail your readers are seeking is important, but too much information can be boring. Blog readers typically aren’t interested in reading something that gets bogged down in details. They want a readable blog that gets to the point!

Invite other bloggers who have found success to write guest blog posts on your blog. This can increase your content’s quality substantially. Have the guest bloggers blog about appearing on your website so that you get traffic to your site. You an do that with several bloggers so that your blog has plenty of excellent content.

Don’t be afraid to incorporate lists within your blog. Lists are a good way to break down key points, ingredients or steps for easier reference. Lists provide information in a format that is easy to view and also easy to understand.

Stay patient when trying to get new readers. It takes time for readers to find your blog. In addition, if your content is limited, there simply isn’t much for readers to consume, at first. As your blog ages, you will be able to add more content and attract more readers.

When blogging, remember to write each post informally. Blogging is a format for entertainment and allows others to create a personal connection with the blogger. It’s important that you keep that in mind when you’re writing blog posts. You want to connect to your reader base in a fun, informal manner so that they will come back for more.

To be successful, your blog must have a regular schedule. New blogs are popping up every day, and if you aren’t consistent with regard to your posting schedule, readers may just look elsewhere. Although readers might be more forgiving during the holidays and such, it is always better to post consistently.

Simple isn’t always better in the case of blogging. Learn constantly, always research and think of this like it’s a business. Learn from other bloggers with more experience, and use the different methods and strategies as you learn. Always seek to improve your blog through new methods and techniques.

Everyone in the world can see your blog; just be aware of that. The overall impact that your words will have is something that you simply cannot estimate in advance. This idea is often an empowering one, and even without monetary incentive this benefit alone drives many people to blog.
