I admit that blogging has become part of my life and I feel that I am pretty good at it, but this has not always been the case. If you were to read my initial posts on Well Blog Me you will see that the quality there falls far short of what I’m able to put out today. In those days I didn’t know what the heck I was doing and the only reason for even writing the posts was to get Google’s attention to increase the PR of my site. Yep, I had absolutely no idea of SEO and mistakenly thought that as long as I continually updated that blog Google would fall in love with me and give me and start sending heaps and heaps of traffic.
Still, I’ve come a long way since then and the main reason for that is I never gave up and I learned a very important lesson. It’s far better to write for people than it is to write for the Googlebots. This is because they’re the ones you’re wanting to attract with you brilliance and if you can do that Google will start to notice you. I made a lot of mistakes but I kept at it and I now consider myself a proficient blogger. It’s kind of like riding a bike, you may fall off a few times but once you get the hang of it you never forget. However, even when it comes to bike riding there are those who excel and the reason they do this is because they push themselves to extremes. Take these freestyle motorbike stunt riders for an example. Read the rest of this entry
In my last post, The Latest Technique To Beat Ad Blindness, I introduced you guys to a brand new plugin, one that I believed would resolve the ad or banner blindness issue that we’re currently experiencing. In that post I used several examples to show people some of the many ways it uses to get your readers attention so that they will click on your links. Perhaps I used too many example because some of the commentators left comments that they found those types of ads annoying.
I’ve only personally come across one blog which used the plugin and rather than being annoyed I was intrigued. So much so that I bought the plugin. Now don’t get me wrong, I hate those popup ads, you know the type; you’re reading a post and then all of a sudden it pops out obscuring your view asking you to subscribe to their list or something. It stays there in your face until you find the ‘x’ so that you can close it.
Not so with the Sore Thumb plugin. (BTW, that was the Tada! effect. You can see some of the other effects in the post I linked to at the beginning) While in that post I had it set up so that it got activated every few seconds, but you can also set it to activate once it reached a trigger point, Like I’ve done for this one, the trigger point being when it comes up from the bottom of the page. It won’t activate again unless they scroll the page back down past the trigger point. Try it so you can see what I mean.
The question is how annoying do people find it? I reckon the only way to really find out is to run a poll. The poll requires you to vote twice, once to voice your opinion as to how annoying you find it and secondly to show whether or not you would click on the link if you found it interesting or relevant.
I believe because the plugin is relatively that if you’re not already a member now is the time to join JVZoo so you can promote it to your readers. Naturally the best way to do that is to have your own copy because they’re more likely to buy from you if they see you’re using it and are exited by it, just as I am.
Sorry, I couldn’t resist but to play with the plugin just one more time. Go on, click on it you know you want to. Besides, you’re always complaining that you don’t have anything to promote on your blog. This could be your first and you can use it to promote it to your readers.
Naturally I would love for you to leave a comment but lets not forget the poll. For as to get the best result we need to get as many people to take part in it as possible and the best way to do that is to share the post with your friends through the social media of your choice. Surely I don’t have to make that wobble as well
Don’t you hate it when you’re doing all the right things, or think you’re doing all the right things, to monetize your blog but it’s just not working. You’ve researched the right affiliates and you link to them from within your post or you place a banner that is supposed to get them clicking on it but nothing happens. Have you ever wondered why this is so? Could it possibly have anything to do with that thing called ad blindness? You know, where people are so used to seeing ads on the web that they are blind to them.
So, if this is true what we need is a way to overcome ad blindness so that we can get those guys to start clicking on them. Ages ago I did a post which explained how one way around it was to use a rotating banner plugin. In those days it was pretty revolutionary because it overcame showing readers just one banner every time they came to your blog. Once installed they were presented with a different banner every time the page was refreshed.
Then I reviewed a plugin that I still use today, and one that was proven to work. I wrote about it in a post called How To Get Visitors To Click A Link.Today I want to introduce you to a brand new plugin that is guaranteed to get your visitor’s attention.
Did that get your attention? I bet you it did. That’s the Tada! effect and is just one of several effects you can choose from. All in all you can choose from the following effects. Read the rest of this entry
