Backlinks Are Now Badlinks: New Ways To Market You Blog, Product, and/or ServiceWednesday, June 27, 2012 15:05
Many people who start a blog think that they can get quality traffic within a week from just posting content. But they’re wrong. When those people find out they aren’t getting any traffic (about a month) they go to companies that get them backlinks to their blog to rank higher in search engines, normally Google. Some people still do this because they don’t think before they buy.
Some years ago when there weren’t as many websites on the net buying backlinks actually worked, but now there are so many blogs and websites that have similar topics that backlinks are slim to worthless. People are now starting to understand after they bought the backlinks that it barely affects their traffic.
So now they do other things like buying traffic which works now. For an example they host PPC campaigns to their targeted audience to get traffic. Like I said this works now and probably for another 4, 5 years, but marketing tactics go away here and there, just backlinks stopped working overnight.
So now there are new ways to market your blog, product, or service which is doing keyword searches for your posts, building links from sites like social networks and online directories, and video marketing! Video marketing is becoming a big viral success if you would promote your products/services on YouTube by making a short, interesting video that people would find slightly entertaining, so they would keep watching.
Also, another great way to get people coming back to your blog is to not make any speling mistakes, like I just did because the audience gets turned down by that, so then they wouldn’t buy your product and probably leave your site.
Lastly, putting in spaces after your commas and punctuation. Just a little tip I thought would be good. This tip was shared by one of my commenters, Steve.
