Generate Traffic To Your Blog With Comments

A great way to generate free traffic to your blog or website is by leaving comments on other related blogs. This might sound time consuming, but it is worth the reward in the end. On my site Mommy Enterprises, my top referrers (not including the search engines) happens to be a couple of the blogs that I visit daily and comment on.

With that said, I am generating FREE Traffic to my blog by doing something I enjoy doing. I enjoy leaving comments on blog posts that I am interested in. How many comments am I leaving per day? Not that much. I currently leave about 10 to 20 comments per day on a variety of blogs that I am subscribed to.

If you find a blog that you like that has an email subscription option, I recommend signing up. You will then receive the blog's updates by email and this allows you to visit the blog when you see a post you want to comment on.

Take a peek at the video from ProBlogger that shows this concept WORKS.....

Now get to commenting. You can stop by my blog if you want to: http://www.mommyenterprises.com/moms-blog

10 Quick & Easy Ways to Increase Your Alexa Rank

Despite the huge webmaster bias Alexa rankings are still considered the main way in which the popularity of a website is judged. A low Alexa Rank illustrates that your site isn't particularly popular and it does negatively impact the chances of recruiting advertisers for your site.

As Alexa rankings rely on data gathered from users which have the Alexa toolbar installed they have a strong webmaster bias, with tech websites having their Alexa rankings hugely inflated. Knowing this there are a number of ways in which you can increase your website's Alexa Rank:

1) Install the Alexa toolbar and set your site as your homepage.

2) If you have an office install the Alexa toolbar on all the computers and set your site as the homepage. Encourage your employees to do the same at home.

3) Put an Alexa widget on your website. When users click through to Alexa.com this will be tracked which will help to boost your Alexa Rank.

4) Encourage visitors to install the Alexa toolbar, perhaps through featuring the toolbar, adding a link to Alexa, or even promoting it in your email newsletter. If you manage to encourage only a couple of percent of your visitors to use the toolbar the effect on your Alexa Ranking will be huge.

5) Join webmaster forums. A high proportion of webmasters have the Alexa toolbar installed so participating in webmaster or online marketing forums and adding your site in your signature can be an effective way to inflate your Alexa Rank.

6) Submit your site to social media and bookmarking sites, such as Digg and StumbleUpon. Alexa toolbar usage is particularly high amongst these users, and as a consequence many click-throughs will give you a rankings boost. As a longer term strategy try to create power profiles on these sites and compliment this by creating link bait.

7) Try Alexa auto-surfs - search on Google for these and you'll come across a number of sites which offer these programmes.

8) Write or blog about Alexa. This has two effects - it educates your users about Alexa and also attracts internet users who already have the Alexa toolbar to your site.

9) Many webmasters use the Alexa toolbar so try writing content which is targeted at them. Tools are also very effective and you don't always have to design the tools yourself - comprehensive resource pages can be just as effective.

10) This is an offline tip which can be very effective. Pay internet café owners to install the Alexa toolbar and set your site as their homepage.

Effectively Using Overture/Yahoo To Get Website Visitors

Overture or now known as Yahoo because of Yahoo’s takeover, was the original inventor of the use of the P4P or Pay for Performance. Overture saw that the internet was fast becoming the easiest and most convenient way to shop, and advertising was going to hit at an all time high because of the many businesses in the arena.

To get a person to go to a site than others, it needs to be very visible. Providing ads that could direct potential consumers and costumers to their site would allow them to have an increase in traffic as well as sales. Yahoo provides a service that can put a site or company’s ad in their sites that can be shown when certain keywords are inputted.

Yahoo offers a chance for any company to increase their traffic by using their services. With more people being aware of your site, there would be more traffic and visitors to your site given the chance to view your pages as well as your products. With even a small percentage of successful sales, with a high traffic volume this could still be a substantial figure for your company.

Getting a consistent substantial flow of website visitors is every company’s goal. Many methods are devised and utilized to ensure that there would be more people to boost the sales and to be aware of the existence of such a product or service. Website visitors are potentially the life blood of your internet based business.

Yahoo/Overture utilizes the same principle as Google’s Adwords. In fact, they are very similar to each other that they use keyword and keyword phrase searches and to determine which ads to show per search. When a person types in a keyword or keyword phrase to search for anything, the search engines gives out the results in a page. Then at the right side of the page, you will see selected ads that have paid for their ads to be viewed with certain keywords and keyword phrases searched.

For example, Lets say you run a car parts retail/wholesale site. You choose keywords that can prompt or trigger your ads to be shown in the page when a keyword is searched. When a search engine user types in Honda Accord, your ad may come up if you have designated that as one of your keywords. You don’t need to fully optimize your site with Search Engine Optimization methods and techniques.

While some labor so hard to make their site one of the high ranking sites per keyword search, you get the chance to be on the top of the list or at least in the first page of a search result increasing your chance to be clicked on. With that, you drive traffic and website visitors to your site a lot faster.

You will have to pony up some cash when using this service though. There are different ways Yahoo/Overture will charge you. It may be in the number of Keywords or Keyword phrases your ad uses or in the many times your ad is clicked on. Others offer many other services like having your ad show up not only in the search engine pages but also with some third party sites.

Third party sites support ads that have the same theme or niche as them. With more areas your ad is shown, you increase the chances of people knowing about your site or product. With more website visitors you increase the sales of your site which makes your investment with your ads a wise one.

With so many competitions in the internet based businesses, it is necessary to take a huge leap forward from the pack by advertising. Yahoo/Overture will be a great place to start. Many have utilized their services and have reaped the rewards of this decision. It’s a marketing strategy that will increase your website visitors as well as increase your sales resulting to profit.

It takes money to make money, while there are some methods that are basically low cost or free, using a marketing service such as what Yahoo/Overture offers will provide results faster and on a larger scale. Many businesses have learned this the hard way, don’t be counted with them.
