• Raising Your Rankings

    Posted on November 2nd, 2011 Sharyn No comments

    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 content on a blog and will reward them with higher rankings.

    Another source for increasing your ranking is to use back links (your websitename/URL with a hotlink [click to go to the site]) from highly ranked sites such as Facebook, YouTube, MySpace, LinkedIn and Twitter. You can also use a service like Hootsuite to type your message and with the proper set up it will send the same message to all of your social media sites. It’s a great time saver.

    When you add a video and a picture every week it will also add to your ranking and make it easier for you get new traffic.

    Overall, it will take less than an hour every week for you to get your blog ranked under 1,000,000 and be in the top 1/10th of 1% of all websites in the world!

    Ranking 923,827 - the top .1% of all websites

    “I really get it! Traffic is up over 3,000 per month, in just two months on one of my sites. So I just added the google adsense yesterday. Now I need to turn on the cash flow. The book is coming along. Adrienne Akinsete

    Adrienne took my blog class in September 2010 and we worked together on some of the advanced techniques in February to help her get the traffic counts up. She has been very consistent about her postings which makes a huge difference in rankings.

    I like that Adrienne has made it a point to learn about Adsense and how it will help her generate income from her blog, other than actually selling her books. It takes a lot of time and effort to make a blog productive and profitable.

    One of the traits that helps a great deal is to have passion about your topic. It reduces the impression of it being work. When you would be doing what you do whether you make money on it or not, you have a tendency to be more proactive in making sure you are continually contributing and learning about your topic.
