Is it possible to get $500 worth of web traffic flowing to your site for free? Well, that’s exactly what happened to Marhgil Macuha. Here’s how he did it, and how you can tweak your own traffic-boosting strategy and gain more visitors for your blog or site.
I read in Macuha.com that Marhgil got featured by John Chow.
(If you don’t know who John Chow is, he’s the guy who’s attracting a lot of readers interested in learning how he is able to gain lots of visitors and make money online.)
John Chow blogged about the Tweet this post without the plugin, which allows bloggers to add a bit of code that makes it easy for your readers to tweet (or create a Twitter message) about your blog post.
The thinking here is that in yet another world on the web, the microblogging realm, getting the word out about your site can translate to a healthy level of traffic. If you’ve heard of Word-of-Mouth Marketing, you can call this some kind of Word-of-Tweet marketing. The bottomline is, if you want more visitors you’ll need to know where people are online and make yourself visible there.
Why did John feature Marhgil’s code, and what’s so great about using code instead of installing a WordPress plugin? It helps make your blog run, or display its content, faster. When your site gets a flood of visitors, speed is a big deal.
Your Traffic Strategy. Quite simply, help others online by posting something useful. And if you want to attract hundreds or even thousands of people to your site, post something that a high profile blogger will find helpful.
Did you know that some people pay as much as $500 just to be featured or reviewed on JohnChow.com? Well, Marhgil did not pay a single cent, so it’s like he got $500 worth of traffic for free.
Marhgil writes: “Yeah. Finally, after 2 years of blogging, one of my link baits caught a big fish. It’s not just a fish, it’s a whale shark!”
You might be wondering what a “link bait” is. It’s basically a blog post or article that can be controversial, entertaining, or downright useful that other bloggers will want to link to it. Given the surprised tone of Marhgil, I’m guessing he wasn’t actively angling for John Chow.
That’s what happens when you simply focus on providing value. You’ll never know when a big fish will share his blessings and channel more traffic to you online.
