How to Triple Your Site Traffic with the 3 Keys of an SEO Blog Post

My website traffic tripled yesterday!

Once again the 3 keys are:
1. Use adwords to tell you which words are expensive.
2. Use the expensive adwords in your post. In this case, “make money with adsense,” is worth $1.50 per click.
3. Blast your social network using something like ping.fm .

The 3 Keys to a Blog Post with SEO

Most SEO people rip you off because they never admit they’re business blog virgins, or are experimenting with your money.

This is just an SEO experiment on how to make money with adsense.

I created a google ad words campaign focusing on what one does to start a blog and make money:

You do not need to know how to create blog software.

The three keys are:

  1. Sign up for AdWords and create an adwords campaign. Do not run the campaign unless you really want to drive traffic to your site and pay for that. You only want to know which adwords are expensive which means those adwords get searched lots.
  2. Use all the adwords in your blog post. If you look above you’ll see that I did as close to that as I could
  3. Use ping.fm to blast your entire social network with your blog post.

Does it work?

Stay tuned for tomorrow when I publish the results here.

These 3 keys are the reason I don’t need SEO experts anymore. I dare someone to prove me wrong.

Update on August 20, 2010: I tripled my site traffic just by doing those 3 things above yesterday!

Blogging Every Day For Six Months Starts Now

I’ve decided to blog every day for 6 months starting now to see if it will get me 10,000 uniques a month. That’s blogging everyday until February 18, 2011.

In this blog post, I just want to share a few things that make blogging different from writing.

I want to share these things because of this piece of wisdom: Blogging is not writing.

  • Each sentence must have a popular Google Ad Word, like blogging or Google. 🙂
  • Keep things between 50 and 150 key words.
  • Engage folks via social media.

Writing is really about engaging people, really moving them. Blogging is a subset of writing that has to take into account search engines and making words and the code that underlies them very friendly to the search engines.

Mephisto: Blogging Software on Rails

Blogging software should meet four important criteria:
1) Easy import from a pre-existing piece of blogging software we’re not happy with.
2) Spam filtering protection in comments
3) Make it easy to add web analytics javascript tracking without deleting it during each upgrade.
4) Should make it easy to not look like Mephisto blogging software or WordPress or like generic blogging software.

Mephisto meets all four criteria.

Plus it leverages the advantages of Rails in that out of the box you can deploy to development, test and production environments. Also it integrates with no mess into shopify or any other Rails project that you might be working.

Hats off to Rick Olson(Development) and Justin Palmer(UI/Design) for making Mephisto along with “a bunch of other cool people.”
