Getting Traffic 14
Over the past month you may have noticed the many changes going on with Google. One of the biggest ones has been the release of instant search. Basically this means that as you begin to type your search, Google “guesses” what you are looking for letter by letter based upon the most popular searches in their database.
Social media is invading every corner of our lives. Did you know that the average Facebook user spent 6 hours 30 minutes on the site in April 2010, an average of 13 minutes a day. Over 54% of all US Internet users now have a Facebook account.
On TV, businesses don't even bother to show their web address anymore. Most just show their Facebook page URL. There is no escaping it! We twitter, we tweet, we friend, we like and we txt our way through every day.
But how do affiliate marketers make money from it?
Discover how you can start to pull money out of the social mediasphere and start to market to those millions of members.
There are thousands of ways you can build links back to your website, your new pages or the articles that you've written to attract more visitors. Rather than start with the most talked about link building method, articles, I thought I would start with social bookmarking for affiliate marketers.
While social bookmarking has been around for quite a while now, many people don't understand its value in building strength into their website rankings and also for bringing people directly to their site.
You've probably seen the "death of" posts out there. "It's all over ... doom and gloom." Yes, Google has slapped thousands of PPC affiliate marketers and many more will have their account closed never to be reopened. However, Google does not have a personal vendetta against affiliates.
Traffic is the lifeblood of any website. Without it, your efforts are fruitless. "But how do I get more of it to my website?" you're probably asking. By following some basic methodologies you can kick off a snowball of traffic that keeps gaining momentum and growing in size. I outline this critical aspect in Part 6 of my "How to make $1000 a month online from scratch".
A friend of mine has had a bad time this past week. For many of you reading this, it’s the stuff of nightmares. Over the past few years he has built a really busy and profitable online business. His website traffic has allowed him to open a factory and employ a bunch of staff.
Unfortunately, he didn’t diversify his traffic until this week, when he simply had no choice.
I often chuckle a little when I hear some "gurus" spouting off that PPC is dead. It doesn't take a genius to see that this kind of talk is just ridiculous. Bring it on I say, because it's going to mean less competition and lower costs for the rest of us.
You've put some serious work into generating traffic, finally more and more visitors are landing on your site, but are you letting them slip away? If you're not providing an incentive to capture email addresses or other vital information, you might as well open your wallet and roll down the window because letting visitors escape is the equivalent of letting money fly right out the window.
