Traffic is the name of the game when you are building an affiliate blog or a commerce site. Traffic represents the number of people who visit your site. When you begin to get traffic to your website, or people going to your site, the search engines, such as Google, Bing or Yahoo start to recognize your website as more relevant, more important to readers searching your keywords. Let’s do it – Increase Traffic YOUR Website! (I say “You’re Welcome” because I know you will thank me!)
If I can show you a couple of great ways to increase your traffic, to get more people to visit your website, and even leave relevant comments when they do visit (the search engines, again, find a website with a lot of comments to be more meaningful and relevant to readers), would that help you to grow your business and make more sales? Yes, indeed!
Let’s get into a couple of ways you can increase the traffic to your website!
Using Social Media
Every single time you post a blog post, you should go to each of your social media accounts that are set up for your business, and post the link with a little blurb. It’s a quick step that will reap you traffic rewards.
Here’s where it gets tricky, though, and I’ll tell you why. It is very hard for most people to get onto social media, post their links to their newest blog post and get off the platform! That’s the tricky part, getting off the platform. Twitter can suck you in within seconds and waste a lot of your valuable time. They all can.
In order to be successful at this business, you must be dedicated and learn to spend your time wisely, because there is so much to do if you want to do this right! So post and get done with it. There is plenty of time for your personal social media, but don’t let it suck you in when you’re working!
While we are on the topic, here are the links to my social media pages. Would you give me a like and join my networks? I’d love to get to know you and help you grow your business!
Join Wealthy Affiliate
This one step will do more to grow your business than any other suggestion I could ever make to you. There are several key traffic benefits to joining the Wealthy Affiliate Premium Program. You can sign up for Wealthy Affiliate and get started absolutely free, but to take full advantage of the amazing traffic-producing benefits of the platform, you do have to become a Premium Member. The good news is it is only $49/month, and your first month is only $19. to get you going!
Let me explain to you the ways that the Wealthy Affiliate Platform will provide you with traffic and relevant comments, and even pay you for comments. It’s all pretty amazing! I’ve participated in the platform comments area, giving and receiving relevant comments, exchanging comments with other members, and I’ve earned almost enough this month to pay for my Wealthy Affiliate Premium Membership fee! It’s like they’re paying me to get comments on my website!
So how does it work? There are two ways to get the Wealthy Affiliate members to your website:
The Give & Take Comments Thread
Here is a screenshot of the thread within the Wealthy Affiliate community.
As you can see, members post a link to the blog post they desire traffic to and comments on, and when a member goes to their site and leaves a comment, they let the person know what post they would like a reciprocal comment on, and the person reciprocates! Hence, the “give & take” comments thread! It’s genius! You can get so many comments just by posting a link to your post and promising to reciprocate on their post!
How awesome is that? You get to visit all these other affiliate websites and see so many creative ideas and interesting niches. People have websites about everything. It really is so great to be able to all work together and help each other out, building our traffic and our reputation with the search engines!
Site Comments Area
This is a more “official” area to give and obtain site comments, and far superior, in my opinion. The Site Comments area is quite incredible. Whoever the programming genius behind the Wealthy Affiliate and Jaaxy platforms is, he or she did an amazing job, and the site comments is just another example.
So this is a program in which you can choose to offer a comment or request a comment. You must have two points accumulated in order to request a comment. In other words, you must leave two relevant comments for other websites and then you will have earned the two points required to request a comment. Very automated.
So, let’s offer a comment! When you want to leave your comment, another member’s website will pop up, and it will show what types of comments the member wants. You can then opt to accept or decline the website. You don’t want your decline ratio to get too high, or you won’t qualify to get paid. So if you accept, you click on the “View the Website” button, and you are taken in another tab to the member’s website post.
This member has requested comments that either “offer experience with the topic” or “opinion about the topic” or both!
You read the member’s website post and then you go back to the platform and leave your relevant comment.
The comment you leave then come back to the website owner for approval like this:
You can edit the comment, delete the comment, approve the comment, or approve and reply to the comment, all right on the platform, and they then post to the website once they are approved. It really is quite an amazing and easy to use program, and it reaps huge benefits to your generic traffic from the search engines. SEARCH ENGINES FIND YOUR WEBSITE MORE RELEVANT IF IT HAS A LOT OF COMMENTS!
Now, let’s request a comment. Under “Choose Website” I chose this website, (I have several sites) which is coachingforinternetmarketers.com. After choosing which site you want comments on, you then select which post you want a comment on. When you click on “Select the site page you would like comment on,” all of your post titles pop up and you simply click on the title of the post you want! It’s super simple!
At the bottom you can see where you can check whichever types of comments you want under “What kind of feedback do you want?“. You can choose one or all of the options. If you want to be able to respond to the comments, you would choose the “Questions on the topic or overall article” option.
Get 24-Hours of Comments
Once you have left only 10 comments on other websites, every single post you have in the queue for commenting will automatically scroll through the queue for a full 24-hours! I have received up to 6 comments on one post! That’s a lot of comments for my two! So you want to get to that 10 each time you do it so you can grab that 24-hour access! That gets you a lot of comments on your posts!!!
Why are traffic & comments important?
The more people (traffic) to your website, the more comments you receive, the more important the search engines think you are, and the more likely you are to start to appear on the first page of a search for your keywords instead of page 94! You must prove yourself to the search engines for them to take you seriously.
Take your business seriously and learn your trade. You must find ways to increase the traffic to your website and get those comments.
Remember, the more traffic, the more people see your products for sale, the more clicks and buys, the more money you make. It is a simple, yet specific, process, and when you have the key, and follow the plan, success is imminent!
