Blogging is actually a trend that started in the early Nineties, and today it’s one of the most preferred marketing methods among successful affiliate marketers. But a Blog is not a sales page, you must blog to inspire and offer advice that your audience can actually use. Which is why your targeting is so important, when done right your blog can be exactly 1000 times more effective than Any Website. A 1000 times More Effective?
Now the figure 1000 is the Search Engine Default Limit for the amount of posts a blog can have, which is much more than you really need. Your blog will start humming with visitors within your first few posts, providing you are blogging correctly. You must gain the trust of Major Search Engines, and you can only do that with interesting, relevant and useful content. Each blog post must be unique, so stop with the article re-writing already! That’s just my personal opinion, but I know how difficult it can be writing hundreds of keyword rich articles and converting that into blog posts. But guess what…? It’s Worth the Sacrifice and Dedication because you must aim at branding your name and not just a single product. Unique content is how you gain your audience’s trust, which is crucial to any online sales.
With the figure 1000 posts in mind, here’s the actual tactic that makes a blog so much more effective – When you post to your blog, you must have the right S.E.O plugins installed so you can optimize each post individually. You also have to set your settings from within your Word Press cPanel inside the permalinks section to “Post Title”. This will then link your post to the primary blog domain where your post title appear after the .com with a / forward slash and then post title. Now when you are targeting your keywords in your blog post title, then these keywords also show in the post URL. This way, each blog post acts as a little “Mini Site” on its own.
Ultimately, if you have as little as Ten Blog Posts that is ten sites out there attracting visitors to the same blog. All done with a few simple Word Press Setting Changes and the Right Plugins. Word Press is literally a Gold Mine when you know where to look and what to change, which will boost your Google Site Rating exponentially. This particular blog has a Google rating of 71% (Gold) at the time of this post, achieved by using the very tactics I’m blabbering about.
Blabbering…? Yes, to the complete newbie this all can sound like blabber because I know it did to me back when I got started and had no clue. We all go through those days of chasing that magic button that will turn our PCs into overnight ATM machines, right? Which is exactly the time when S.E.O seems like way too time consuming, and definitely way too much work. The Truth of the matter is that it’s actually not all that complicated, the key lies in understanding.
Let me assure you that S.E.O is well worth the effort and sacrifice because there is nothing on the Internet that drives targeted visitors like Search Engine Optimization. In fact most of the tactics, settings and plugins are completely free. You Just Have to Know Where to Look, what to do with them and how to apply the method.
Wishing You Prosperity,
