Building a web destination takes savvy planning and plenty of investment. Of course, sometimes even the best bloggers and web masters encounter issues in trying to get new traffic to their sites. Fortunately, there are several helpful tips that could help start to boost your blog's traffic and get more people visiting your site. Use these tips to begin boosting traffic on your site immediately.

1.  Build Great Content

It might seem simple, but it is easy to forget just how important great content is to a website. Focus on building great content, and you will keep readers coming back again and again. Without a focus on content, your site will begin to flounder.

2.  Expand Your Sphere of Influence

Blogging about other blogs and using connections within the industry to keep your site alive can have a good effect, but even better than staying within one small group is to look to other blogs. Try to exploit any connections you may have and work to get the word out elsewhere.

3.  Reply to Comments from the Beginning

No comment is unimportant. The faster you learn this, the better. Comments from readers should be addressed. Not only does this demonstrate how important the reader is to you, but it can also help build stronger content that search engines will index.

4.  Post in Forums

If you are not regularly using different forums to converse with others who may be interested in your content, you are missing out on a huge source of potential traffic. Start posting in these forums and watch your traffic rise exponentially.

5.  Consider Creating Video Content

Video content has several different benefits to the budding web master. Firstly, video content is high-value content, and will keep existing visitors enthralled. Videos can also be optimized on sites like YouTube, pulling traffic that can in turn be directed to your blog.

6.  Don't Forget Social Media

Social media has emerged as one of the power players in the world of web traffic. You can easily reach out to new readers using these tools, while also encouraging a conversation with blog visitors on these channels.

7.  Effectively Title Blogs

Have you ever thought about the effect your blog titles have on site traffic? If you haven't you need to start doing so immediately. Blog titles play a crucial role in SEO, and well-written titles could begin pulling in new traffic quickly.

8.  Make Content Easy to Share

What if your content could work for you? That is exactly what can happen when you focus on developing high-quality content that is valuable for everyone who reads it. Make this content easy to share with others by implementing sharing buttons with each post.

9.  Consider Taking Things Local

Google+ is a great way to bring local results and reviews to your content. Google+ can easily be linked with AdWords, and add credibility to your results when others search for your page. You may want to take this into consideration if trying to generate traffic for a particular region.

10.  Be Helpful on Other Blogs

Visit other blogs that interest you and you enjoy. Try to start a conversation in these places and share links back to your site in your name. Most comment systems allow you to easily include your site, which visitors to those destinations can in turn use to read your site. If you look like you have something of interest to share, you may be able to convince readers on the other site to head your way and start reading your content on a frequent basis.

How to Get Content for Your Blog without Writing It

Posted: 18 May 2012 03:34 AM PDT

Posted on One Tip A Day - What Will You Learn Today?

This is a guest post by Audrey. If you want to guest post on this site, then please read our guidelines here.

You know you need plenty of regular, fresh content for your blog in order to keep your search-engine ranking high. But writing a new post every day — and writing an interesting post that has new information and that people want to read — can be a tough job.

Fortunately, there are a few easy ways to get regular content for your blog without writing it yourself. Here are a few ideas:

Buy PLR Articles

PLR articles — or “Private Label Rights” articles — are written by freelance writers and sold through content sites. You pay for an article, or a packet of articles, and you have the right to republish them as you see fit. You can put your own name on the articles, and you can use the articles to create an e-book to sell or to promote your blog.

Check the usage rights when  you buy your articles. Some have limits for use, and some need to be rewritten before they can be used.

Hire a Freelance Writer

Of course, if you want content that is unique and specific to your blog, you can hire a writer to create it for you. There are numerous Web sites designed to match freelance writers and those looking for content: odesk and elance are among the top sites. Craig’s list and other job sites are also great places to post ads looking for freelance writers.

Keep in mind that you get what you pay for: If you pay only $5 an article, you can’t expect quality content. Pay more and expect more in-depth, well-written articles from more experienced writers.

Allow Guest Posts

Accepting guest posts is a great way for you to get quality content — for free — and for writers to get exposure or to get a link back to their blog. Announce your policy for accepting guest posts on your blog, including the criteria for the posts you will accept. This can include the type of content, the word count, and other requirements such as photos or biographical information.

Guest posting is a popular way for bloggers to promote their work. You may be surprised how many requests you get to guest post for your blog once you announce your willingness to accept them.

Set Up a News Feed

You can automate much of the content of your blog through a variety of tools. One of the most popular ways to do so is to set up a news feed. Using an RSS feed, you can set your preferences for the types of articles you want to capture, and you can set it up to post directly to your blog, linking to the source of the article. Set your parameters to find articles of interest to your niche, and be sure you choose reputable sites for scanning.

Supplying your blog with regular content need not be a 24-hour-a-day job. If you can’t keep up with the pace of writing for your blog — or you just want a break every now and then — look into some of these sources for your content. You can get as much quality content as you need no matter how low or high your budget.

Common Blogging Mistakes

Posted: 02 Apr 2012 06:10 AM PDT

Posted on One Tip A Day - What Will You Learn Today?

This is a guest post by Laura. If you want to guest post on this site, then please read our guidelines here.

Your blog is only one blog out of hundreds of millions of other blogs available on the Internet, which means if you're trying to gain readership and make money you have to stand out above the crowd. Little mistakes can end up affecting you in a big way if you aren't careful. Take care to avoid these common blogging pitfalls:

1. Writing wordy posts

It is a rare day that someone is going to sit down and read your entire post verbatim. It's just not going to happen. Instead, people are going to scan through posts to hit the highlights of what the post has to offer. So make your blog posts concise and to the point, and skip being overly wordy. Writing posts with bullet points or numbered points is the best way to impart information to your readers.

 2. Publishing sporadic blog posts

You don't have to fall into the category of bloggers that publish every day, but you should have some sort of consistency to your blogging schedule. Maybe it's blogging three times a week, maybe it's blogging one really great post once a month – whatever the case, your readers should be able to know when they can expect a post from you, otherwise you'll never gain a consistent readership.

3. Blogging to just to get new content up

On the other side of publishing consistently, you also can't just write a post to get something new up on your website, you have to publish something of quality. Hastily written blog posts usually translate to poorly written blog posts. Your readers read your blog because they gain something from each post, and to have a successful blog you have to continue to offer them something each time they read.

4. Disregarding social media

Social media is one of the easiest ways to market your blog, so you are doing yourself and your blog a disservice by not being involved in the major social media players. Very rarely will content promote itself, especially when you consider how vast and varied the content available on the internet is, so harness the power of social media to leverage your blog posts for you.

5. Focusing too heavily on ads

Your readers probably not only know that you use advertising, but expect it to some degree. However you can't go crazy with advertising and not anticipate that it's going to become annoying to your readers. Readers want to think that you blog for the pure joy of blogging, that you blog for them. They don't want to think that you're making a profit off of them, so keep the advertising classy and not too flashy.

 6. Publishing without proof-reading

Every good writer knows that an article isn't finished until it has been proofed and edited. A blog is no different. You'll come across as sloppy and careless if you don't take ten minutes to proof-read your work before you publish it.

Blogging requires a certain amount of finesse and writing savvy. Don't get lost in the shuffle because of mindless mistakes.

Posted: 04 Mar 2012 02:22 AM PST

Posted on One Tip A Day - What Will You Learn Today?

Do you have a windows 7 machine that you manage remotely?  Maybe you have a machine that your wife or child uses, or a media center machine in the front room that you want to make changes to while somebody else is using it?  Enabling Concurrent Sessions in Windows 7 will allow you to do this i.e. allow more than one person to be logged into Windows 7 at the same time.

Enabling concurrent sessions in Windows 7 is easy:

  1. Download the file from this post,  and remember where you extracted the files e.g C:\Win7RDP
  2. Go to the folder where you extracted the files, right click on “install.cmd” and select “Run as Administrator”

Now if you want to enable Multiple Concurrent Sessions i.e. log in on the same account more than once:

  1. Launch a Command Prompt with Administrator priveleges (Start > CMD > Right Click > Run as Administrator)
  2. At the C:\Windows\System32 prompt type "cd\Win7RDP"
  3. type “install multi” and hit enter

WordPress SEO: Only Display RSS Titles In Sidebar

Posted: 03 Mar 2012 04:55 AM PST

Posted on One Tip A Day - What Will You Learn Today?

One basic SEO tip is to increase the density of your keywords on your pages, so I was surprised to find that the default behaviour of the WordPress RSS widget is to display the titles from the sites added, but if you check the page source, the full feed i.e. all the text from each of the posts is added to the page!

This obviously isn’t good, but the solution is easy:

  1. Install the Linkable Title html and php Widget WordPress Plugin: we need to install this plugin so that we can add php to wordpress widgets
  2. Once installed, add a new linkable title widget where you want to display your feed and add the following code:

<?php include_once(ABSPATH.WPINC.’/rss.php’);
wp_rss(‘http://sitefeed.com/rss’, 10); ?>

replacing sitefeed.com/rss with the sitefeed that you want to display.  This code uses WP’s inbuilt function to display just the titles from feeds e.g. for the Connected Internet Tech News feed I’ve added:

<?php include_once(ABSPATH.WPINC.’/rss.php’);
wp_rss(‘http://www.connectedinternet.co.uk/feed’, 10); ?>

Edit the number at the end to choose how many title to display.

How to Make More Money as a Technology Freelancer

Posted: 02 Mar 2012 05:20 AM PST

Posted on One Tip A Day - What Will You Learn Today?

 

This is a guest post by David. If you want to guest post on this site, then please read our guidelines here.

Freelancing and contracting can be daunting at first. If you have left fulltime employment, you may miss your job security and having people around you who guide and support you when you need it most. However, contracting can offer you a greater quality of life, flexibility to do what you want and greater financial reward.

If you are new to the world of freelancing or are considering making the change soon, here are a few helpful tips to maximise you earnings.

Be Sociable as well as Professional

Many people struggle with the idea of working on their own but working as a freelancer or contractor needn't be lonely. Build relationships with the clients you obtain as if they were colleagues and talk to as many people in the department as possible. See it as a perk of the job. Every time you get a new contract, you also get a chance to meet new people and make new contacts.

Don't Burn Your Bridges

Most advisors will tell you to focus your time on the people that provide you with the most money. This could be recruitment agencies that provide you with work or clients that you deal with directly. The problem with this is that many freelancers often take this advice too literally. They screen calls or don't bother responding to emails, because they don't want to <em>waste their time </em>with people that won't generate money. The key is to keep your finger in as many pies as possible. Keep all of your contacts sweet and you will always have the option to pick and choose who you decide to work with. After all, you never really know where the next big job is going to come from.

Practise What You Preach

It seems like an obvious thing to say, but make sure you use your skills to help you get business. If you are a web designer, make sure your website demonstrates your very best work. If you are a software programmer, design something in your free time which you can talk about and don't be afraid to show off. Show that what you do is important to you, that you really strive to be the best. This will win business over and over again.

Be Transparent

Building solid relationships means you will generate repeat business. Building good relationships isn't only about the work you provide, it's also about YOU. If a company feels they can trust you and depend on you, why would they both looking elsewhere when they need the service you provide? To inspire trust, go above and beyond to do the right thing. IF you complete a project in less time than you had initially quoted, tell them about it and reduce your fee. You may make less money in those situations but you will get more work in the long run and that is key to freelancing success.

Keep Your Friends Close and Your Enemies Closer

When you work for a company, you are surrounded by your peers who stimulate and educate you. Freelancers sometimes struggle to develop or discuss new ideas as they often work alone. This needn't be the case. Go to networking events and don't just look for work, look for your competition. Get friendly with them and study what they are doing. Discuss the industry and your ideas.  Is there anything they are doing which you don't? Can they teach you something new? Understanding your competition can often be as important as understanding your clients.

Above all, be 110% committed and dedicated to what you do. Never forget why you got into it in the first place and enjoy it!
