One of the first things a wannabe uber blogger should be wondering is how to generate website traffic. In the online world web traffic equals money. It’s as simple as that. What is not so simple is how to get the right targeted website traffic to your blog.
If you think that becoming the next famous A-List blogger is going to make you money, then you might as well leave now. Go ahead and wander off to one of “those” blogs and read their latest fluff piece on “10 Ways To Circle Jerk Your Blogging Buddies And Get Famous.” The type of traffic most social media butterfly types generate isn’t worth beans in terms of monetization. It is not targeted website traffic, it is a broad demographic of folks that show up to be entertained by their latest vapid regurgitation about how to make money blogging. They are not there to seek real information which means they’re not there geared up to buy anything or click adverts. They come running when something new shows up in their RSS reader, and they disappear just as quickly, possibly leaving a “hey buddy, nice post” comment to the benefit of the blogger’s ego. Of course those comments are usually only a sad attempt to get similar readers to filter over to the commenters equally inane blog about blogging. This is self-serving traffic, and not targeted website traffic.
Wait, isn’t this a blog about blogging? Well, yes I suppose it is. But it’s not a blog about how to get famous blogging. It’s a blog about how to make real money blogging. It’s essentially about getting paid to blog; getting paid to do something you really enjoy doing. By that I mean a steady flow of income by getting steady website traffic. I’m going to (at least try) to show you how to generate website traffic that will make you money. You will make pennies at first, and you will continue to do so for sometime. But if you continue to generate website traffic, you’ll reach a tipping point where all of the sudden you start getting adsense checks monthly and from there is just snowballs.
The ways I show you how to generate website traffic are nothing new, and I don’t claim to have invented anything you will read here. For the most part this is parroted, and unoriginal information that has been around a lot longer than I’ve been blogging. What I do know is that these methods work, and by listening to me and the folks I point towards, you will make real money online, and you won’t have to publish a crappy eBook to do so.
