Knowing Your Traffic Source Can Help Your Blog

A few days back my mate Mitch did a post called Guest Posts, Comments Or Interviews; Which Drives More Traffic To Your Site where he examines where most of his traffic comes from, other than the search engines. It turns out that the site that generates most of the traffic happens to be this one. While some of it would have to be attributed to the amount of comments he leaves on this blog I would say his titles also have a lot to do with it. Although Mitch would say he doesn’t incorporate the best of titles I am sure that even if that it the case they still stir the reader enough for them to click on the CommentLuv link. This just goes to show how important a CommentLuv blog is for getting you that extra traffic.

Anyway, that post got me to thinking about where all my traffic was coming from, and that is saying something as I normally don’t bother all that much with statistics.

Where My Traffic Comes From

Well, as one would expect most of my traffic comes from Google, second on the list coming from direct traffic. Surprisingly my third greatest traffic source was Zaparena, a site that I’ve done several posts on and in case you’re interested I will link to those posts in the related posts section at the end of this post, sending me 238 visitors.

The next half dozen or so came from blog sites that list me as a dofollow blog. Although they seem to bring in a fair few visitors I would love to do a study to see how many of their comments actually get deleted as spam. I’m sure that the traffic I get from Zaparena is of a higher quality as it is more targeted than those blogs who are more interested in getting a link back to their site than anything else.

Taking The Time To Increase Your Blog’s Speed

I spent most of yesterday working on the insides of this blog. You could almost call it spring cleaning, being spring and all. :lol_ee: The reason behind it all was that I wanted to speed this baby up a little as it was starting to drag its sorry little ass and we can’t have that now can we?

I’ve read around the traps that the loading speed of any given website is very important because search engines such as Google will penalize slow moving sites. Truth be told though there is something so much more important than the search engines and that’s your visitors. If your site takes too long to load you’re going to piss your visitors off and they’re going to leave without ever seeing what it is you have to offer. So anyway, here’s what I did to improve the loading speed of this blog.

Making Your Blog Load Faster

You really make this a regular part of your blog maintenance, because even though you’ve done it before chances are that over time you’ve gotten slack or added things to your blog that ultimately slowed it down. I reckon that making it part of your spring cleaning routine would be a great idea. The last time I did it was when I wrote about Speeding Up Your Blog To Keep Your Readers Happy sometimes last may. You may want to check that sucker out just to see what I did to make things go faster. That was then and this is now so here’s some of the stuff I did yesterday to improve my readers experience.

CommentLuv Premium Adding To Revenue Stream

In my last post I told everyone how you have to be prepared to Be Prepared To Spend Money To Make Money. Most of you would agree that the best way to make money pushing any particular affiliate is if you actually own or have tried the product. This is because people are more likely to believe what you have to say if they see you suing the product. There is no point me trying to sell a MacBook Air to someone if they see me using a PC! If on the other hand they see me using a MacBook Air and I can demonstrate to them all the features it has they are more likely to buy one from me.

The products that I actively promote on this blog are products that I use, such as my theme, Market Samurai as well as other products. The fact that people actually see me using the products that I recommend is their greatest selling point. That is one of the reasons that I have decided to purchase CommentLuv Premium. I don’t think that anyone would argue with me when I say that commentluv is one of the best WordPress plugins out there. Yet as good as it is Andy has added many features that make this a plugin people would be willing to purchase, and as owners the ability to promote it to other bloggers.

What Makes CommentLuv Premium So Great

That’s right, CommentLuv Premium is great and I believe adding it to your plugin arsenal will lead to sales because people will want the features it has to offer. Things like;

  • It has 5 plugins in one: These include KeyWord Name, Andy’s version of KeyWord Luv, Twitter Link, Gasp, DoFollow and of course, commentluv Read the rest of this entry
