Blog Redesign Part 3 (Traffic)
Traffic is probably the most important thing for you blog. If you have no traffic or not working to improve traffic then what’s the point. The Money Cult had a nice steady growth in traffic over the last couple months. Last month I had my first drop but I am the blame for that I stopped working on this blog/business and took a break.
My Goals for traffic is to get to the point where I have a 100 unique visitors daily before the end of the year. How can I accomplish that 1st I need to get better get back on track with my posting. I must post 3 times a week period. I will continue to use the basic SEO tactics that I published in my 3 part serious on SEO. These work they help get my on page one and two for targeted keywords overtime which result in a nice stream of continues organic traffic.
Lastly I need to continue with link building. I have really dropped off with this. I pretty much have only been bookmarking for the last month and half which is important but really you need to bookmark, submit your articles and build some links back to them via comments. I was better about leaving comments on other blogs but have really started to drop off on that also so I need to continue this as my referral traffic has suffered.
A few things I would like to explore that haven’t but I would think would help is guest posting. I would like to make it a habit to start doing some guest posting on some high traffic blogs at least once or twice per month. I think you can really get some good exposure for yourself and that is really what traffic is all about. The more you name and link are spread around the net then the more ways you have for people to find your site.
The other thing I haven’t done yes is any kind of article writing and submission. I would like to here from others on this if they have tried it and had any success or not. It is often talked about but not sure if it works as I haven’t seen any real world case studies on the topic to make a call on it. Depending on feedback I am not sure if I will go down this path the other option is to build some TheMoneyCult branded products that I would offer for free with links back to this site or even submit to PLR sites for distribution.
In conclusion I believe I will get to my of 100 visitors a day in time it is just a matter of how much time. If I follow my own advice here and follow thought I should be able to close in on that target before the end of the year.
