    I have many of my bloggers ask me how they can get their blogs ranked highly and how to get new traffic consistently. It is a major problem for bloggers and one that I worked a long time to develop a routine that will guarantee a blog be ranked under 1 million within 4 to 6 weeks with a basic routine anyone can manage within an hour a week.

    I typically recommend bloggers write a blog every day for the first three months. The search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo love to see large amounts of content on a blog and will reward them with higher rankings when content is added daily, at least for the first three months.

    Adding a video to your blog also adds credibility and great content for your readers. Even if you don’t have your own videos, I suggest creating a Power Point Presentation and then recording you reading your blog to make a video. You can use Camtasia or any of the many screen capture software programs.

    Pictures are also a great way to increase interest among your readers. People relate to you more from pictures because they build a sense of familiarity. You can always find a way of using your pictures to add a new blog post.

    So remember, write a a blog post every day (you can even post date the post), one video and at least one picture ever week.

    In no time you’ll have your blog ranked in the top 1/10th of all websites in the world:

    1.2 billion websites in the world

    120 million = 10%

    12 million = 1%

    1.2 million = .1%

    Your site ranking under 1 million = 1/10th% of all websites or only 1 million ranking higher than yours.

    That’s an amazing achievement for someone not paying for SEO and other marketing programs.

    When I first started blogging I used Blogger and had three separate blogs. I kept up the blogs for about a year, but when I didn’t see any results for the effort, I stopped and totally forgot about the blogs.

    Then about three years ago I took a teleseminar and was impressed by what people were doing with their blogs. They were talking about having incomes in the tens of thousands of dollars.

    Being the analytical I happen to be I decided to verify everything I heard. But more than that, I put up 28 of my websites to test what I had learned comparing it to actual results.

    What I found was when I did specific tactics, it had specific results. I could add specific Widgets or Plugins and no matter which blog I applied them to, they had the same basic results. It was truly amazing. I could find  a pattern of results with specific tactics and that lead to the thought that I could help anyone achieve the results if they did the same tactics.

    When you think about the Internet and the mass perspective of possibilities, it was an amazing realization. For the first time, I had proof I knew how to get anyone’s website in the top 1/10th of 1% of all websites in the world within a matter of 4 to 6 weeks.

    So, you can try on your own, or give Blogify a chance!
