Five Ways To Increase Website Traffic Through Online Message Boards And Blogs

Blogging is a great way to make money online. Blogs tend to perform well in the search engines and they are easy to promote. Writing new content and updating your blog on a regular basis is key. You provide new content for your readers and the search engines. If you have good quality information, then you can find yourself with a good following of loyal readers that will subscribe to your RSS feed and read your blog regularly.

Advertise your own products/services – This works for online entrepreneurs-bloggers. As an entrepreneur and a blogger at the same time, you will be able to advertise your products through your own Read all about it in my blog and increase your sales as a result.

But there are a great many blogs and scraper sites out there that steal content and don’t give proper attribution. They either republish a summary of articles (sometimes linking to the source, sometimes not) or publish the full article but remove the author and bio info. Still others run the article through a rewrite software program so they can publish “unique” content on their site, even though it’s still stolen content.

First of all, the search engines love blogs. Google knows people love online blogs because they’re constantly updated with fresh new content. So they give them great rankings in the search engines. That means you get tons of visitors to your blog without having to pay for advertising.

On the other hand, I say this with a sheepish smile, since Blogs are free, I set up another blog in Google for my family and friends where I simply post pictures of the family and news about them. This I have no need to be picked up by web search engines, and just pass out the URL to my kids and close friends. Which is another way to use blogs.

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 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.

The mighty Splog – This is a “dirty” blog, and most people don’t like splogs. A Splog is a blog that is built by someone that takes other people’s content from their site without permission and put it on their site, they then turn around and put their ads all over the site. Besides just being downright rude, it actually does hurt people like you and I that strive to provide original content.

Nothing that has been mentioned here is difficult. With the right efforts on your part you can ease your worries to a considerable extent. But then, you need to have a passion for making this all happen. Over and above, you need to have patience. I say this because you cannot expect to get the results overnight. Last, but not the least, you need to go in for creative and informative blogs that your readers will find interest in. So, instead of wandering hither and thither you need to start working now with online blogs and make money in the process.
