In the last post I explained a number of different ways you could get your blog optimized for traffic and then methods in which you could drive traffic through the use of backlinking. The good thing about a lot of backlinking methods is that not only do they help your blog to be recognized as important by search engines like Google; many of the methods drive traffic directly to your blog because of the insightful content you are providing. In this post I am going to lay out a blueprint for you that you can follow step-by-step and then in later posts I will give you more details on how to actually set up each of these methods to maximize their impact on your traffic stats.
- Do the preparation steps in the previous blog post.
- Write five articles related to your niche – this is not as hard as it seems – you can simply rewrite your blog posts to create unique articles.
- Use Camtasia Free software and PowerPoint presentation slides to create videos out of your article content – don’t mind being in front of the camera? Then use that, but you want to create five videos based on your five articles and you will need five PowerPoint presentation slide shows for traffic generation as well.
- Create an audio file of all five of your articles. If your article content is quite short just make one audio file including the information in all five articles.
Okay so at this point you will have five articles, five videos, five PowerPoint presentation slide shows, and at least one audio file. All of these files will contain backlinks to your site and if you can include a call to action (without sounding spammy) in the content as well all the better. Now you have to get these out on the net.
Your articles are going to provide a hub for the rest of your traffic efforts. Firstly you want to submit them to Ezinearticles.com. Unless you are a premium member this is going to take a few days for the articles to be approved. You are also going to submit your articles to the following sites:
But wait until your articles have been approved on Ezinearticles.com first – EZA does not like duplicate content. Don’t forget to ping your article links (the actual link of the page your article is on) as well as Stumble it, Twitter it and put the link up on Facebook.
Next you want to find some graphics to go with your article content and then head over to Squidoo.com and set up five lenses using your article content and the pictures you have collected. Each article will make an individual lens. If you have not made a Squidoo Lens before then check out the help tutorials they have on their site which are very good or courses by people like Tiffany Dow or the PotPieGirl. Again once you have your lenses finished then ping them and use your social media links to put the word out about them.
Well that should be enough to keep you going for the moment. In the next post I will explain more things you can do with your articles and also where to post the other content that I had you create.
