Go to a bookstore site, and find a topic. Perpetually hot topics include heath, wealth, and happiness which are constantly on peoples’ minds. Now scroll through that topic and notice how the books are written for sub topics of the original idea. Those sub topics are what you are looking for. Read more

Redirecting RSS feed to Feedburner.com

I am in the process of learning and implementing the redirection of the built in rss feed of this blog to the Feedburner.com service. I guess it is a better experience for the user to get the feed from it. Anyway there is plenty of options over there to get the things look better.

The only thing I am wondering is if anybody really use this feed thing. Maybe on an all star blog with a lot of content, comments and activities. Yes I understand that this is an useful tool for a journalist. Subscribing to multiple source feeds expose him to recieve fresh news on the topics of his domain.

And for me for example I am passionate about sailing and writing music. I go to a number of forums and blogs everyday. And I just started a blog on fast sailing boats. I think I can use the feeds system to monitor a great number of sites on a feed reader. It is an efficient way to stay inform. And play the journalism work on my own blog. Yes..

When marketing articles, in order to be classified as an expert on something you must write appropriate and knowledgeable articles. The articles need to be factual and show that you have a well rounded education on how to use or sell the product. Once readers have understood your articles and enjoy them then they will look for other marketing articles from you.

Your marketing articles should be informative, specific and give people a call to action after all that is why you wrote them isn’t it? You can offer them a free report of ask them to call for more information. This is an especially effective tactic to use with a toll free call capture system.

It is a good idea to come up with a short catch phrase that will make people remember you by. This phrase should be on all of your advertising materials such as business cards, stationary, and car signs. The phrase should have something to do with the online portion of you advertisement. If people can remember how to get to your site then internet marketing search engines will make your marketing articles more available to people.

When you write an article let your expertise shine through. Give the reader important information that they want to hear about the product. Use the internet market to your advantage and give readers an expertas insight on a product. At the end of the article give them your information so they can contact you about further questions they may have.

When writing your article, think of distinctive words that will set you apart from similar products and articles. This way when people think of the product they will think of you first. It is also smart to use a variety of words so search engines will locate your article when people look up similar products.

Inserting links to other websites with similar product into your writing is a nice way to give readers more information. It would be a good idea to own one of those websites that you refer to in your article so they can visit it and get additional information. Using Search Engine Optimization services or SEO is another service you may want to consider.

It is very important that you carefully define the niche you want to dominate in such a way that it really separates you from others. Real estate is a good example of extensive niche marketing. There are even niches within a niche. There are recreation and second home properties which are often further broken down into beachfront homes, beachfront condos, golf properties, mountain properties, ski properties, lakeside properties, horse properties and even properties for automobile collectors.

How To Drive Free Traffic To Your Website

Filed under: Traffic Generation 
by Brian Armstrong

The holy grail of internet marketing seems to be getting “free” traffic. Even though you could do a lot with paid traffic, such as pay-per-click, free traffic is great. There are several ways you can get some free traffic to your main website.

Starting a blog, whether on your own domain or even on a hosted site such as Blogger.com or WordPress.com can give you a great advantage over just a regular website. The main thing that makes blogs great for getting traffic is that they have a built-in RSS feed. These RSS feeds allow search engines and several other directories or engines to index the content of blogs and do this very easily.

There are several social bookmarking sites, such as Digg.com and Del.icio.us and other sites like this. You can “bookmark” your own blog posts and other pages to help them get ranked in the search engines. Often times these social bookmarking “tag” pages will get ranked as well. Although this isn’t a direct link, these pages can serve as bridge pages with links back to your site and these pages rank also rank very well with the search engines.

There are dozens of places on the internet that you can create mini-sites or individual pages. These sites typically will allow you to post whatever content you want to post including your own RSS feeds from your blog, other websites, articles, video or whatever else you’d like to create in these pages. The main key to success with these types of sites is to make sure that you’re posting links back to your website, especially the deep links. Those RSS feeds included in the mini-sites or pages are a great way to get links back to your site. Also, create an individual text links using html or even images.

Next to pay-per-click, articles are the best way to get your website ranked and get traffic back to your website. The main reason these article websites are so good is because the pages on which your article shows up are very relevant and the links that are allowed in the author profile or resource box. Many of the good article sites also have a lot of “authority” with the search engines and their article pages rank very well which also means that the link values passed along from these types of sites are very high.

Posting on forums is another great way to generate links back to you site. Find forums within your niche and start contributing to the conversations. Make sure that you’re posting on forums that allow you to add a signature with a link. Also, whenever possible, view the source on forums and see if they add a “nofollow” attrib within the link code. If they do, that forum won’t do much for your search engine optimization, but will work for getting clicks back to your website.

You can find that there are a lot of blogs that already get a lot of traffic. When you comment on these blogs, you’ll usually have an option to put in your name, email, url and your comment. If your comment is insightful and contributes to the value of the original post, you’ll have other readers of that same blog post find your comment and many times will click through to your blog. I’ve personally done this and also had visitors to my sites also from blogs for comments I’ve left.

These are some great ways to get free traffic but each of these requires an investment of time. If you’re willing to put in a consistent, dedicated amount of time each day or a few times per week. Consistency is a key part of success when it comes to getting traffic to your website.
