I’ve always said that too many people concentrate too much on getting a better PR when what they should be concentrating on is ways to increase their traffic. Getting more traffic is more important because you can earn more from getting more people to your blog than you can from a great PR. That is of course unless you’re selling ad spots on your site or if you’re getting payed to do posts. My last two gigs got me $100 each for about 300 words per post. Trouble is that is a rarity and a great traffic base has more potential for a recurring income.
Idea To Getting More Traffic
There are a lot of different ways of increasing your site’s traffic and one that I’ve spoken of in the past is blog commenting. Blog commenting alone has gotten my Alexa ranking to around 60,000. Hoever, once I cut back on that because it was just too time consuming I noticed traffic dropping off and my Alexa ranking increasing. The question was what do I do about it?
That was when I came up with my Friday Funnies series. I thought if I could get people interested in a particular regular post then I could at least secure a regular source of traffic. That alone would guarantee bring me more traffic on a regular basis. Is it working? The answer is yes. My Alexa is currently at 63000 and fairly stable. I checked Google analytic and wasn’t at all surprised to see the following.
Google Search Engine Queries
As you can see the majority of queries relate to my Friday Funnies post. So in essence it proves they’re doing their job. I’ve even made some sales from the Amazon products I’ve tagged on at the end of some of those posts.
In my last Friday Funnies I introduced my readers to Sexy Sal, her debut so to speak. I’m hoping that in time she will be as popular as Aunt Acid. I never would have attempted this if it wasn’t for the Logo Creator software that I purchased recently. I used it to create this little banner that will appear on all Sexy Sal cartoons.
I’m hoping that in time Sexy Sal will be an integral part of getting more traffic to WassupBlog. Heck, if she gets shared around like Aunt Acid I won’t know what hit me.
