You’re looking to increase blog traffic fast for affiliate websites right? For all of the things you may be doing right, it’s important to understand how Google sees your content before opting to go to paid traffic or other ads that may just end up costing you a boatload of money that you really don’t want to waste. What’s the best way to increase your traffic? Research and be consistent with your writing.

Now, I know that may not be what you want to hear but to be honest their is no push button way of increasing your traffic to your affiliate websites. Sure, if you search online you will find all kinds of schemes and scams that will guarantee they will get you up to 500 percent more traffic than you are getting now. And no, it’s not illegal for them to do and yes they will deliver traffic to your website but there’s a catch.

Most if not all of the traffic being sent to you will be bots or traffic from people who are not interested in what you are offering. 

I know it sucks and I have learned over the years that buying my traffic from ads and paid traffic services are pretty much like throwing money down the toilet. I think it’s sad that some of these so called companies sell to unsuspecting individuals a service that’s totally worthless.

Of all the non organic ways to get traffic I believe that if you are going to use anything other then go for an ad on Facebook or any popular social network site. If you have a product you believe in and use the tools to build a successful ad and target the right traffic sources then you can get some conversions. But, you will have to do your homework and learn how to build a successful ad on a social network website. Do, it half as#ed and you’re going to lose your money.

 

What’s The Best Way To Build Traffic?keep writing  - How To Increase Blog Traffic Fast For Affiliate Websites

This blog website you are checking out is about 2 1/2 years old and has over 300 blog posts. For the first year of working on this website I saw very little traffic but after a year the traffic started coming in little by little. The more content I created with quality keywords showed me much better traffic as the months went on. And this wasn’t paid traffic. This was all organic traffic which is what you want to get.

Now looking back to the title of this article “How to increase blog traffic fast for affiliate websites” I have to admit that there is only one true way to get quality traffic to your website that will increase your odds of success. And that is going to be getting organic traffic which does take time. The good news is if you are consistent in your writing then you definitely will see organic traffic within the first year.

I wish I could tell you there was an easier way and that you can make a killing with your affiliate websites overnight but it just doesn’t happen unless you really really understand the industry and know what the heck you’re doing right off the bat.

Look at it this way. You’re building a long term business with your blog website. You want it to grow with time and it will if you put the time in and write consistently and gain a reader base. Pick a niche you really love and run with it. Post videos, write reviews and learn from your mistakes but most of all have fun with it. It’s your baby and you need to love it to watch it grow.

Here’s to your success!

 

Work At Home Opportunities For Veterans

What’s A Veteran To Do?

Being a veteran of the military in the United States I’m always on the hunt for ways to make a living especially nowadays. It’s pretty insane how some people go to great lengths to make money too in the name of being a veteran. I’ve seen just about every scam in the book from people claiming veteran status on the freeways to getting a free cup of joe at Starbucks. I mean really? And that really ticks me off. And it’s not because they get they get free stuff but because it gives vets a bad name. So, when a true veteran tries to better themselves, it seems they get a bad rap and people assume they are just scammers. It’s important to find work at home for veterans opportunities. (more…)

Ok, if you have been reading my blog you may have noticed that I am a Wealthy Affiliate member. You may be wondering what the heck is Wealthy Affiliate and is it just another weird program that will hustle you for your hard earned cash. Well, I thought about that after being in the business blogging arena and pretty much came  up with a couple conclusions. So, if you’re interested in reading more see what I have to say about Wealthy Affiliate.

What Is Wealthy Affiliate?

Wealthy Affiliate is a online program designed to help individuals moving in the business blogging world. If you don’t know what business blogging is either did I before I actually started writing as a blogger. I figured blogging was something people did when they were just bored or had nothing else going on. I was definitely wrong. Business blogging is a method of gaining exposure for websites that offer products and services. It’s a pretty simple concept and you use keywords and regular writing techniques to get the thing going. And if you think it’s all just a bunch of hot air, well it isn’t. Big businesses pay good money for quality blogs written for them. But, I wanted more than to just write blogs for other individuals and companies. I want to find out how my blogs could make me money ongoing versus me just write a blog for someone for an income.

 

So, How Much Does Wealthy Affiliate Cost?

Wealthy Affiliate Is Your Own Business

Wealthy Affiliate basically gives you all the tools you need to get your blogging business moving. They teach you about everything from learning the WordPress platform to gaining traffic to your website (you get two sites free). I thought that was pretty cool but the training and resources was probably the best thing about the program to be honest. And I am a stickler on stuff. It could be because I am a Marine Corps veteran or just due to have had a pretty tough go at life. Either way and went through Wealthy Affiliate with a fine tooth and comb. Then I thought about the price of going to college or a trade or technical school. Again, very pricy and at 52 the last thing I need is school debt. No thanks!

I joined Wealthy Affiliate over two months ago and have been doing pretty good I have to admit as I actually like what I am doing with it. It doesn’t feel like work. It feels like I am building something that will provide income for a long time as my site gets bigger and improves in rankings. I’ll be straight with you though, I don’t think this type of business is for anyone. It takes time, patience and the ability to write on your own without someone standing over you shoulder. It takes self control and a vision for your future. It takes someone who has basic writing skills and it’s not a get rich deal.

Is It For You?

Blogging For Success Takes Time

I don’t know if Wealthy Affiliate is for you either. I can say that I have run into so many people who give up on something before they even give it a chance and that’s not the way to go. I don’t care if you’re working at a fast food restaurant or are the president. If you give in to negativity and all the naysayers in the world, you’re not going anywhere…regardless of what you do! And I can attest to that from personal experience. I won’t go into all I have done or been through in life but I will say I come from a broken home that forced me to make some impulsive decisions like join the Marine Corps and work some jobs that broke my back. And that’s not the way to succeed in the world. Sure, the Marine Corps is a great organization but I was a 18 year old kid throwing mailbags in Japan as a young marine. The work was hot and sweaty and at the end of the day I was exhausted. But, due to a death in the family I had to do what I had to do so I joined the service. There was no money for college, no money for living.

Market Your Blog By Networking

So, maybe you see yourself in a similar situation, I don’t know because I don’t know you. But I have been a business blogger for the past 4 years and I will say it’s been an interesting ride and yes you can make money doing it. Wealthy Affiliate gives you the tools you need to succeed but much of it is up to you. I look at it like this. I’m getting a marketing and writing education and have the opportunity to build this as the years go on. Wealthy Affiliate has been changing people lives for over ten years now.

There is a cost associated with Wealthy Affiliate but compared to other online programs it’s cheap. You can sign up for free and then if you go Premium you get all the training and access to forums and videos to get you moving in the right direction. The first month is $19.00 and then $47.00 a month but that’s it. There are no hidden charges or anything. Compared to going to a tech school it’s a good deal. But, everyone is different so it’s up to you to decide if Wealthy Affiliate is for you and if you really like to blog and have a vision for you and your family’s future. You can always keep doing what you’re doing but chances are eventually you will decide to just follow your dreams like I did and go for it. I don’t know but I do know that Wealthy Affiliate has helped change a lot of peoples lives and it’s changing mine!

untitled 300x85 - Blogging Tips To Get Your Business Blog PerfectedOk, so today I’m going to dive a little deeper into how you can get your blog more traffic by linking your work to other blogs on your website. It’s a relatively simple process and is one of the things that can really boost your site up a bit. To do this you will need to go to your editor and highlight the test you want to add a link to. Your link could be another post in your website which you simply grab the url of the link and insert into the “Add link” section which looks like a paperclip in your editor on WordPress. You can basically add any link you want with this.

After highlighting the text you want to add a link to you will put in hit “Add link” and the highlighted text will not be a link to your other url. Once finished you simply hit publish and your link will be clickable. This is a great way to have internal links to other urls that you think would be relevant to what your readers are looking for!

Add Bold To Your Paragraph Titles

Another tip that is often overlooked is to add bold titles above your paragraphs. Adding titles to your work makes the tone of your work much less monotone and creates an engaging mood within your blog. To see how this would look, take a look at the example below.

Write To A Targeted Audience!

Blog About Food!

 

You want to write your content with a targeted audience. Think about who will want to read your blog. What type of niche did you choose and is it specific enough? It’s important to narrow your niche down to one specific topic rather than focusing on a broad topic. If you’re writing about food and dining you might want to pick a topic like “Italian Fine Dining” versus just “Italian Food.” Keep your niche on topic and try not to pick one that’s too broad. Your readers will be people who are looking for something specific in your blogs related to a broad niche.

You can see by the above paragraph that the work looks more engaging and captures the readers attention. This is a simple way of keeping you readers engaged in what they are reading.

Find Out What Your Style Of Writing Is!

All of us were taught a particular way of writing and those early days of learning to write with big letters between the lines still remains today the way we write on pen and paper. But what about your style of writing? Did you know you have one? Yes. we all do. You just have to put it to work. And as I said before I am not a blogger who has extensive training in writing. But when your business blogging it’s important to adapt your own method of writing and not try to emulate someone else. Besides in the long run it will be much more fun. When I write business blogs I try and just write naturally, the way I would be talking to you. Not in your face and not so matter of factly that I put someone to sleep but the way I think it would sound if I was speaking directly. Your style of writing will no doubt be your own and there really is no wrong or right when it comes to choosing what’s best. If you write about business opportunities in your blog it should read conversely.

Now here is a topic that really should be addressed. Is blogging for income a scam? If it were that easy to answer that question I would in a heartbeat but the reality is it really all depends if your intentions are to just make cash with your blogs. You will find an amazing amount of websites out there looking for people who can write blogs for them. These sites include Textbroker, Constant Content and Fiverr who rank as the more popular writing for income sites. But are these sites really scams? I guess in my opinion they could be scams or not. It depends on what you consider a scam. These sites and a multitude of others have been online for years so technically if they abide by the rules of the land they are legit. But, if you’re a writer seeking work is it really worth the effort?

 

Writing Site Are A Dime A Dozen

Blogging For Income Scam?

Let’s look at Fiverr.com for instance. This is a platform that allows you to place a ”gig” on the site and then you basically do whatever it is you do for five bucks a pop. As a writer for Fiverr.com I offered a gig of 300 words of content for five bucks and then wrote whatever the buyer wanted. Usually I wrote articles that were about products and services and for 5.00 minus the Fiverr fees (1.00), then the Paypal fees (.50) I ended up with about 3.50 a gig give or take. The article took about 20-30 minutes to write and so my take home was about 7.50 per hour. But, the work is sporadic to say the least. So, is Fiverr.com a scam? For me I would say no simply because I was compensated for my work even if it was for pennies. I used Fiverr.com as a way to hone my skills as a writer and it worked.

One thing you have to realize about these sites are they are inundated with writers who don’t use English as their native language. If you can write fairly well in English you will climb the ranks in no time but that doesn’t guarantee you will be rolling in the cash. In fact most of the buyers use the articles to promote their own products and services through affiliate programs which is my opinion is the best way to earn online. Why do I say this? Well, because by using articles to promote products you can use the same article to make money over and over again. As a writer you write an article and your paid and the buyer retains the rights. In my case 5.00 for an article (3.50) after fees was all I’d ever see. When you work for yourself promoting affiliate programs you retain rights to your work and you can make recurring income.

Earn Income By Blogging

So, I guess you have to make your own decision on whether or not these writing for hire programs which are rampant on the net are scams or not. I will say that the ones I have come across actually do pay even though it wasn’t much. Some will pay you more depending on your experience and your time with the company. I think for a beginning writer/blogger they are fine to get your feet wet and gain some writing experience. But, long term I believe if you have talent for blogging you may be wasting your time and effort. There is a better way to not only get paid to write about what you want to write about and choose the blogging niche of your choice. I found it here and it works and I’m much happier doing it this way versus writing for others. Sign Up For Free Here
