Blogging as a Website Promotion Tool

by , under Blogging

If you’re looking for an excellent website promotion tool to add to your arsenal you might seriously consider the idea of blogging as an integral part of your business.

The concept of blogging or writing a web-log has been around for quite some time but didn’t really make an impact on the mainstream population till about 1999.

Back then and even now most people wrote blogs for simple personal use as a way to connect with others around the world.

Those in the know, however, understand that blogging can also be used as a powerful tool to promote a business website.

It is not my intention to get into the specifics and technical aspects of blogging within this article because I have mentioned technical aspects in other articles. If you missed those pages you can find them here. Blogging for Success and then 20 Ideas to Help Your Blog’s Popularity. You might also read some of the related posts if time allows.

Instead my hopes are for you to truly comprehend just how important blogging can be to a modern thriving Internet business of any kind.

It has proven to be the most effective and least costly website promotion tool that I have for my business.

Blogging should be used as your way to create your own massive piece of highly sought after Internet Real Estate.

For example…..let’s pretend you have a 6 page business website which markets or sells hunting gear.

You noticed early on that the “hunting gear” niche has a sizable amount of competition on the net.

You’ve already submitted your site to directories, done some social bookmarking and exceeded your website promotion budget but just can’t seem to get over that hump.

Sound familiar?

One reason you still can’t get the kind of traffic you need to start really rocking is because you only have a 6 page website. Even though the site may be optimized properly, chances are it doesn’t have enough keyword depth and backlinks to both compete with your competitors and raise your site’s trust factor with the search engines.

This is where blogging can really help break things wide open for your business.

If you can find a way to write consistent useful blog articles about your product(s), then link to those website products from your blog articles along with proper keyword application and titles, you will soon notice that your site is becoming quite a bit more popular.

How soon you ask?

It depends on how often you blog and whether or not you apply good on-page optimization technique.

Generally speaking the more you write the higher your traffic will climb.

When traffic goes up more sales are generated for your business.

Sales are good for your business right?

Don’t be intimidated.

After much practice and plenty of frustration you will eventually learn how to find balance between providing great information for your readers and pleasing the search engines as well.

Once you get to that point you will completely understand what an awesome website promotion tool blogging really is.

Low Cost Targeted Website Promotion

by , under Website Traffic Generation

This is what we’re all looking for right? We want good reliable low cost targeted website promotion.

We want traffic to come to our site and we want a bunch of it.

I’m always researching different ways to promote my websites but I wanted to let you guys know I’ve had a considerable amount of luck using certain website directories.

Many of them are free to submit your information and each one serves as a new back link to your site. Some will even target local areas for you. Obviously, some of the better directories with higher amounts of traffic require payment for higher levels of site promotion but the cool thing about it is you can use targeted keywords for the title of your site.

As I have previously stated, keyword targeting is by far the best way to get buyers to your site who happen to be looking for what you offer. More often than not you can purchase a featured review of your site which generally last for a year. In some cases it can be a lifetime listing.

When you submit your site info to a directory you must pay attention to what category you are submitting to. People who use website directories will sift through the categories to find the information they are searching for.

Don’t place a link for your golf supply site in the “computers” category as this will cause you to get much less clicks and visits.

Ok…that’s about it for today.

Now go promote your site.

by , under Music Promotion

Want more publicity for your band or solo artist website? Modern Day Peasants recently completed a new World Wide “Musicians Directory” with access from our home page. The page is now active. If you have any amount of experience marketing your music then you know how important it is to get your music and your website in front of as many fans and listeners as is humanly possible. Hopefully you have been reading some of my articles and you also understand the importance of search engine optimization. When a website is properly optimized it will bring a tremendous amount of new traffic to that website.

If you want to learn how to drive tons of traffic to your band’s website you should consider surfing a bit through this site where you’ll find loads of traffic driving techniques to use. The idea is to have as many locations as possible pointing to your website. It would also be wise to add your band’s link to the new Musician’s Directory. I continuously strive to keep our site highly optimized to bring in new traffic which will result in more traffic to your band’s site as well. We are currently getting a little over 10,000 visitors per month and the site is growing at a rapid pace.

I was originally planning on charging a fee for the link but have since decided that in fairness to my struggling and even some not so struggling musician friends out there that this is not the right thing to do. The idea of Peasants is to help musicians. Your links will be free of charge. The music business is tough enough as it is. So please fill out the form below and be patient with me on your submissions. Depending on how many we get will determine on how fast I get them posted in the Musician’s Directory. Free is a very inexpensive way to effectively promote your music. Once your website is listed in the directory it will remain there for life or until you instruct me to do otherwise. Your website’s link will enjoy highly optimized traffic forever.

Best To You!
