In the past few years, the art of blogging have taken over our lives by infiltrating our home via nightly news broadcasts and a welcomed substitution for reading the daily newspapers.
Ad Mania – All right, no need to overwhelm your visitors with ads, but going “ad-less” doesn’t make all that much sense either. The requisite AdSense ads can be helpful as can any banner ad space that you can sell. You might as well bring in a bit of income for all of your hard work!
Navigation of you website is done in a widgets area. When you build a website your navigation is important and this is easily managed by dragging and dropping the links to your pages to a sidebar. Links to all the pages that you have created will then show up at the side of all your web pages. You can also remove links that you don’t want in your navigation like your about us page, which you may want to link to from your website footer.
Third, you need to browse for other blogs and leave comments. This will help you get back links and traffic. This also gives you a chance to have and maintain relationships with other bloggers. However, you need to ensure that your comments are relevant and interesting. Most importantly, never spam a blog with your comments.
If you want to try it out, I was pretty impressed with it. It doesn’t have categories for everything though so it might not work with your particular niche. I find a minor misspelled word from time to time but it really does a good job honestly. What it does do though is create very unique articles that will pass Copyscape, and Google loves original content.
Content scraping, also known as blog scraping is something that some webmasters do to automatically put content on their sites. It involves using computer software techniques to get information from websites around the internet. It’s closely related to web indexing which is used by all the major search engines. Anyway, without getting into more detail, I personally would recommend you stay away from this technique.
And, once you’ve learned the basics of setting up your site, then you can charge to set up other wordpress sites! This is a great way to earn some fast, easy money.
Traffic Patterns – I’ve built traffic to my blogs by linking them to several other sites that I manage. Might as well take advantage of what I own to promote what I manage. In addition, when I blog elsewhere I am not shy about linking back to my blog. Finally, I add tons of links to each blog and this move has kept the traffic flowing.
