The 60 Second Web Traffic Model

Free vs paid website traffic     Web traffic is a prized commodity in the online space for many reasons.  For some people, web traffic equals potential customers, and for others still website traffic equals popularity or social proof that one can use to further escalate one’s station in the pecking order of virtual popularity.

I have yet to find the true measure of the value of web traffic because it means
so many different things to so many different people.  With that being said,
I still aim to give you quality content based on an actionable model that will
bring traffic to your website in 60 seconds.

The most generalized description that one can make about traffic is that it can
be divided into 2 categories; free traffic and paid traffic.

2 great sources of free traffic are word of mouth marketing where you simply tell someone you know to go to website “X” because it’s a cool website that they will find value at.  The next no-cost traffic method that I recommend and have used to build a client list of over 10,000 people from around the world is a traffic exchange website such as: http://www.TrafficDynamite.com

Both methods work to get you traffic in 60 seconds or less.

Since I gave 2 examples of free website traffic, I will not discuss 2 paid versions
of traffic that might work for you (or not).  Depending on what your budget is for paid traffic generation let’s cover 2 of the most popular paid traffic models
that you can apply in 60 seconds;

1st – an ad swap or solo ad to a known buyers list, this is a situation that
exists when you contact someone who has access to a list of people who have
bought the exact or similar product or service that you are marketing and
advertising.  You agree to a set price per person that takes action and opts
in to your list or buys whatever you are selling.

2nd – is the currently popular purchase of social traffic, for example a
Facebook ad or a sponsored post that you pay someone with a large fan base
of following to endorse your product or service.

There are many more methods and strategies to marketing and advertising with
free and paid web traffic which is why I invite you to join me for a webinar with Michelle Pescosolido on 21 March 2012 (Thursday night) at 7:00p.m Central time to learn how to leverage the power of free and paid Facebook advertising.

Virtually every blog has an RSS Feed.  RSS feed’s can be a very useful tool for allowing subscribers stay connected to your blog.  Traditional RSS feeds however have a few drawbacks.  Most subscribers stop visiting your blog because they get content updates from your blog’s RSS Feed.  This leads to less user participation on your blog and decreases your blog traffic and revenue as well.

MaxBlogPress Bring My Blog Visitors Back is a powerful WordPress Plugin that offers you more flexibility and control over your blog’s RSS feed.  You can now entice your RSS readers to visit your blog without the slightest annoyance and at the same time, add value and increase readership.

But that’s not all.  You can watch the blog traffic video now by clicking HERE or read on.

Content thieves, have found an easy way to scrape your blog contents through RSS feeds making use of automated software. Now, with this new plug-in they become a sort of free marketer for your blog. When they scrape your blog with this plug-in enabled you can now give them your content and your identity as well which creates free back links and more blog traffic for you :-)

Isn’t that amazing?

To tell you more…

This amazing plugin comes with some attractive and powerful features that completely transform the look and functionality of the RSS Feed. Using the power of Bring My Blog Visitors Back, you can now upgrade your RSS Feed with the following features:

a) Display related posts
b) Display social icons
c) Display Number of Comments
d) Display Latest User Comment
e) Display header and footer text/banners and
f) Display copyright notice

This plugin is not made for you if you: i) Don’t need a boost in quality traffic and revenue of your blog.
ii) Don’t mind scrapers stealing your content via your own RSS feed.
iii) Are satisfied with whatever setbacks your blog has encountered.
iv) Are not concerned about how your RSS feed looks like nor what it does.

However, it’s a must-have if you really are serious about your blog traffic and blogging career.  If you are syndicating your blog through an RSS feed, and worried about the minimal web traffic and revenue you have getting from your blog, you will luv this plugin.

Website Traffic Giant Google, Still King?

Website Traffic Giant Google, Still King?

No Google Allowed Image     Website traffic and Google go hand in hand, or do they?  There is no denying that gugle is still a fierce competitor in the online website traffic, marketing and advertising industries recent changes as well as gradual shifts in it’s corporate culture have caused insiders to abandon the internet juggernaut.

James Whittaker recently left gugle after a successful career however, he cites several changes with the most recent privacy policy changes which make any information you share on gugle not so private.

You can view the entire article here:  http://blogs.msdn.com/b/jw_on_tech/archive/2012/03/13/why-i-left-google.aspx

One of the best parts of James’s article is the stark reality that “Google was the rich kid who, after having discovered he wasn’t invited to the party, built his own party in retaliation. The fact that no one came to Google’s party became the elephant in the room.”

There is allot of great content with inteligent insight into how gugle was and what it is like now and believe me there is also allot of the word “Facebook” used as well.

One further item to note is the mention of how utube changed once the web video giant was acquired by gugle.  I was even victimized last year by gugle when they deleted my video’s and access from utube ~ what a disappointment and let down.

I stopped using G+ for awhile and I still dont care to use their shiny web browser a try on my computer.  I applaud James for his candor and explaining why he did it.

How do you feel about Google and website traffic, what is your stance on gugle, share a comment with me and let’s talk about it?

3 Ways to Keep Web Traffic Coming to Your Website

Web Traffic Barricade

One of the most frequently asked questions that I get asked here at the Web Traffic New Blog is – “How do I keep the visitors that come to my website from leaving?”

I want to provide you with 3 quick strategies that will prevent poor bounce rates.  The bound rate is a measurement of the number of visitors that leave your website after looking at just one page for only a few seconds.

1st) Research and get to know the source or sources of incoming traffic.  Ensure that the web traffic streams are in alignment with your site or pages targeted keywords so that you generate quality visits and not junk traffic.  This way the visitors who arrive are targeted and more valuable because their purpose for visiting matches their search for the content of the page.

Don’t try to improve a non performing page by reworking the page design or changing the page’s (or site’s) navigation,  often this doesn’t work.

* Remember, to reduce bounce rates, take a step back and look at the bigger picture from the visitors’ viewpoint which leads me to the 2nd suggestion.

2nd) Resolve the site/page purpose vs. the call to action.  A website has a purpose and the pages within the site have a purpose as well.  You must ensure that the purpose of your site matches why each page is in your site and there should be a minimal amount of call to action requests on each page.  For example, if your site is a newsletter then the focus should be on highlighting the benefits of the newsletter and the call to action is making it easy to sign up to receive it.  When you quickly meet the needs of your visitors they stay longer and consume your content.

3rd and finally), I saved the most valuable web traffic tip for last, subtle tweaks that allow your visitor to scan a page in no more than two to three seconds and find what they want is key.  Remove multiple navigation bars and multiple search boxes, even oddly placed ads will drive visitors away.  Remember you call to action and that the more complicated your site/pages design the more likely a visitor will leave.

Don’t make the assumption that visitors will stay on a page where the information that you want them to consume is minimal such as an e-mail address or contact number.

Keep your design, purpose, and call to action as focused and targeted as you can.  With these 3 key strategies in mind you will see improvements in no time so make sure you keep track of and analyze your web traffic and the stats behind your desired outcome.
