A Plugin That Increases Click Through Rates

CTR

There is a very good reason why many bloggers are not making sales and that is because they have a low click through rate. After all, it stands to reason, unless people click on your affiliate links you’re just not going to make any sales. Like most bloggers I would write a post with what I hope are strategically placed affiliate links using what I hope are the right keywords to encourage people to click on them.

Unfortunately that’s where it ends. I don’t worry about split testing the anchor text links inside the blog content because it’s all too hard. This is a real shame because  even though I know certain anchor text keywords can lead to a substantial click through rate over other anchor text phrases I don’t have the time or inclination to work out what ones work the best.

This is where WP Linkizer comes to the rescue. This game changing WordPress plugin will {WP Linkizer} giving you the best results possible. I’m using it right now in this post! It’s the link after the bouncing link which is only possible because of the Sore Thumb Plugin. As you can see from the image below I have been using it for awhile. Clicking on any of the images will show you a bigger one so you don’t have to strain your eyes trying to read the data. Read the rest of this entry

WP Zon builder plugin

I’ve been alluding to a new niche blog I’ve started for awhile now and I’ve been busting to tell people about it, so much so that I did tell my list members which did make me feel somewhat more relieved. Before I introduce that blog to you guys though I want to tell you why, after already having so many blogs, I would want to start another niche blog.

It all has to do wit an experiment I was conducting with {WP-Zon-Builder}. If you have been following my blog you would have noticed that leading up to Christmas I was doing a daily post offering ideas of what I believed would make great Christmas gifts. I was only able to do this because of Wp Zon Builder because it made it all so easy. At the end of that month upon checking my Amazon stats I saw that those posts generated 41 product clicks and of those 4 sales. That’s the first time I’ve ever generated 4 sales in one month via my Amazon links!

I actually didn’t expect to get any that year because I knew those posts probably wouldn’t even be listed on any of the search engines yet because that all takes time. This Christmas should be a different story and this is why I decided to start my latest niche blog The Gifts Guru! In the twelve months leading up to Christmas I hope to have this blog popping up all over the search engines giving people the gift ideas that their looking for.

{SkimLinks} is going to be another very important factor in monetizing my gifts idea blog. As a SkimLinks member I’m able to monetize that blog using some of the most popular online shops as places to buy those gifts. I’ve started a list of those stores on a page of the blog called, what else but Online Stores. The beauty of those links is that every time someone clicks on one of them they are a potential customer and if they buy something I’ll get my commission. I wrote all about SkimLinks in the post called How Every Blogger Can Finally Monetize Their Blogs.

Naturally I want to give potential customers the best experience while visiting the blog so I’ve hosted it on {inmotion hosting} so that it will load quickly. I’m also using techniques listed in my post on How To Optimize Your WordPress Blog to ensure that it continues to load quickly. Naturally I’m also using the FlexSqueeze theme because it offers all the best features and it’s so easy to make the blog look the way I want it to.

I’ve also been researching other plugins which I hope will increase my blogging income in 2013. You may want to join my list to make sure you don’t miss out on any future posts which you may use to help you increase your own income :wink:

How To Optimize Your WordPress Blog

web page speed

I promised you in the last post that I would tell you how to optimize your blog so that you can increase it’s speed and at the same time keep Google happy. Before optimising this blog and moving it to {inmotion hosting}, it used to take over 12 seconda for the page to fully load. Now it takes around 3 seconds. You have to admit that is a pretty big difference. This post will be the first of a series of posts that wil explain how it did it. The first step was to resolve the issues suppled by Google’s Page Speed Insight. The initial scan of this blog showed that as far as Google was concerned I had some high priority issues to resolve.

High priority.These suggestions represent the largest potential performance wins for the least development effort. You should address these items first: Serve scaled images, Leverage browser caching, Enable compression, Optimize images

For the purpose of this post I will show you how to resolve these issues starting off with serving scaled images. Read the rest of this entry
