7 Ways To Drive Massive Traffic To Your Blog

March 31, 2007

As mentioned in my last post, traffic remains one of the biggest problems of many internet marketers. Truth is, many of the traffic generation techniques are already made known. But people are just not taking action to put those techniques into good use. So instead of complaining that there’s no traffic to your blog, stop and reflect if you have been doing enough to consistently drive traffic .

Nonetheless, I’ve compiled some of the traffic techniques which have worked for me. Hope it will benefit you!

7 Ways To Drive Massive Traffic To Your Blog

1. Submit your blog to blog directories – There are two main benefits of joining blog directories. Firstly, the more listings you have for your blog, the more exposure your blog has. Hence, naturally it acts as a form of traffic. Secondly, you generate backlinks for your blog which will help to raise your page rank in the long run. Some of the blog directories you should submit your blog to include Blog Explosion, Blog Elites, Blog Catalog and BloggerSG (for singaporean’s blogs). There are tons of blog directories around and you just need to do a google search for it. Dedicate a portion of your time to submit your blog to at least twenty of the most popular directories, and traffic will come your way in due time.

2. Visit other blogs and leave comments – Now you should never shut yourself out from the rest of the blogosphere. You need to visit other blogs related to your interests and leave genuine comments. I’m not encouraging you to spam others with your comments for the purpose of getting traffic back. It’s easy to spot such comments and most people simply ignore them or even delete them. Hence, strive to engage in discussions going around in others’ blogs and give your honest opinions. Make friends in the blogosphere. And this will help improve your traffic tremendously.

3. Create an account with Technorati – Technorati is a must join for all bloggers. Basically, it’s like a search engine and massive directory for all blogging related activities. If you use it well, it can help to build a superb linking campaign and increase your traffic substantially. Head on down to http://technorati.com and claim your blog. Thereafter, install the Ultimate Tag Warrior plugin and include tags inside your blog posts. Hence, when people search for tags on Technorati, your blog will be listed for the tags you’ve inserted inside your posts. To find out more about the Ultimate Tag Warrior plugin and other essential plugins you ought to install for your blog, check out this previous post of mine.

Sorry ppl! My bad! I did not keep up to the promise of more posts this week.

So back to the free eBook. Not sure if you’ve heard of Michael Cheney. But he’s a famous internet marketer well- known for his Google Adsense Videos and 11 Days To List Profits.

Sorry For The Lack Of Posts!

March 25, 2007

Yup.. The title conveys my message! Have been really busy with school projects, upcoming tests and the workshop I’m conducting. Furthermore, yesterday was shutdown day. (Just an excuse)..

Anyway, I’m still hoping for more comments for my last two posts. Do read it and let me know your views if you haven’t! Remember, the issue is really not whether you would rather be rich or happy (guess the ans is pretty obvious). But about identifying a cause that is bigger than you and lead us towards fulfilling a bigger purpose on Earth. Go read it!
Would You Rather Be Rich Or Happy?

Would You Rather Be Rich Or Happy (Pt 2)

March 18, 2007

So happy to see all the comments pouring in.. Nv knew so many people actually bothered to read my blog posts.. Haha.. So b4 I proceed, jus wanna say thanks to all who have voiced out their opinions. Appreciated it. Had a wonderful time reading thru every single comment and really pondering and reflecting over many stuffs.

For those who have not read my previous blog post, do read it over here.

Now, the blog post was intended to clear some misconception about money and people who strives hard to be wealthy.

Though the title of my blog post could have been misleading. Just in case some people misunderstand that I actually would rather choose to be rich than happy, just let me clarify. Firstly, I must state that I would definitely choose to be happy rather than rich. Period.

I know money is NOT equivalent to happiness. I’ve seen so many examples of families who live an extremely simple life but yet experience the warmth and happiness which so many wealthy families are deprived of.

That is something which no amount of money in the world can buy. On the other hand, there are numerous examples of wealthy families which are broken apart. While many people admire those who are being born with a silver spoon, I’ve seen cases of wealthy friends who feel extremely depressed and empty inside due to the lack of warmth and happiness in their families. As a result, they resort to crimes and other bad behaviours so as to seek excitement in order to fill the empty space created by their wealthy parents.

Hence, this has led to the belief that being wealthy actually creates more problems. And some people really do believe that wealth and happiness are mutually exclusive.

But is that really the case?

Having read through the comments in my previous post, just would like to bring up some interesting points:

Would You Rather Be Rich Or Happy?

March 15, 2007

Today, I was chatting with some of my friends in school when a comment by one of my friends sent me into some serious thinking. We were just chit-chatting casually when one of my friends asked me how’s my online business doing. As usual, I was pretty excited about my online business plans and also the workshop that is currently ongoing.

I went on to talk about how we must really live out of our comfort zone in order to become successful and wealthy in life. Then one of my friend commented:

‘I do not want to be rich. I just want to be happy.’

For one instant, I was stunned. For some reason, I did not know how to answer her. Not because I agreed with her mindset. But because I was rather astounded by that comment. I mean, since when wealth and happiness are mutually exclusive??

Then another quote came to my mind,


‘Money will not buy you happiness’.


 Ahh… Now I’m starting to see the link.

Boost Traffic To Your Blog Through Blog Reviews

March 11, 2007

Recently I’ve witnessed a spike in blog reviews started by various bloggers. The concept is simple: Blogger A invites other bloggers to post a review of blogger A’s blog on their respective blogs. In return, blogger A offers a backlink and sometimes a prize for the best entry.

In my opinion, this is a good way of driving traffic and increasing publicity for one’s blog, other than the honest feedback that one actually receives. As a review of your own blog is being placed at potentially many other blogs, your link is being exposed to hundreds or even thousands of pairs of eyes.

Recently, I chanced upon Alvin’s blog which offered a similar review campaign. And it really caught my eye as he was offering a Digital Video Creator to whoever who posted the best review of his blog. Though I’m not sure how is he going to judge these entries, the Digital Video Creator is simply too attractive to miss out. (the typical ‘kiasu’ Singaporean mentality). So kudos to Alvin for making me come up with a review of his blog:

The Law Of Attraction Manifesting?

March 10, 2007

In one of my previous blog posts, I talked about one movie – ‘The Secret’ which I watched upon recommendation from Stuart Tan.

You can read about my post over here. Unfortunately, the Google video link has been removed by the owner so you can’t view the video for free. Nonetheless, you can view it at http://thesecret.tv for a small fee.
Recently, I did some pondering over the Law of Attraction once again.

In my last post about The Secret, I mentioned about the 3- step process mentioned in the movie:

1. Ask – Make a command to the universe
2. Believe – Believe that your wish will be granted.
3. Receive – Prepare to receive.
And it led me to think about this verse in the bible:

‘Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you’ – Luke 11:9

Sounds similar doesn’t it?

I thought about how the Law Of Attraction has manifested in my life lately and it just won’t stop….

Are You Up For The Shutdown Day

March 6, 2007

With the proliferation of the Internet and the increasing advancement of technology, our lives are increasingly becoming highly dependent on Info-Communication Technologies(ICT). One of the modules I’m taking at the moment, New Media & Society, discusses this extensively. And the school project I’m working on also relates to this topic as we seek to find out ‘How Dependent Are We On The Internet’ nowadays.

I think the answers should be obvious even before we conclude our report. The Internet has changed the way we communicate, do work, source for information, conduct business, obtain education, make friends… and the list goes on… Relationships are being forged on the Internet today, many of which are even more solid than those being forged in the offline world.

Will there be a limit to the ever increasing dependence on the internet? I doubt so..

Interestingly, the guys over at Shutdown Day have declared March 24 Saturday, to be the official Shutdown Day. It’s aim? Read more

Viral Marketing GiveAway 4? What’s Up With All These Give Aways?

March 2, 2007

NO.. Not another give away please…

Ever since I started on internet marketing roughly in August last year, I’ve witnessed at least five such massive giveaways. For those who are still unaware of such giveaways, they are basically a huge collection of free internet marketing tools, eBooks and software which are given away by various internet marketers in a bid to build their list.

This is an excellent chance for beginners who are seeking free information on the various aspects of internet marketing. I still remember how excited I was when I encountered my first such large scale giveaway.

Without thinking, I opted in to countless internet marketers’ lists so as to receive the free gifts. However, as more giveaways popped up, my enthusiasm level died down. Firstly, the free internet marketing stuffs dished out seemed repetitive. Furthermore, there was simply no time to dig through all the stuffs included inside these giveaways.

I soon realized the best way to get a head start in Internet Marketing was simply to invest in a good guide. Or a few good guides. I myself have invested in a couple of such guides, the best of which is Derek Gehl’s ‘Insider Secrets to Marketing Your Business On The Internet’. No doubt, it is slightly costly. But the value you derive is worth so much more.

All my doubts about internet marketing were cleared once and for all and I’ve managed to build a solid foudation I dare say. And this guide is really about building a business, and not just some hyped up ‘get rich quick’ methods which so many eBooks out there position themselves to be.

As for affiliate marketing, Ewen Chia’s Secret Affiliate Weapon and Rosalind Gardner’s Super Affiliate Handbook remains to be my most valued investments.

Coming back to my discussion on the giveaways, hence this time round, when I gotten wind of the Viral Marketing GiveAway 4 by Brett Ingram, I frankly wasn’t moved at all. ‘It’s just one of those giveaways once again’, I though to myself.
