giving away a free PS3 to get backlinks

if you offer something to attract people you should go big time. that is why darin is giving away a Free PS3. But because his blog is about Internet Marketing he wants something in return. everyone who wants to win the playstation has to create a link to his blog. that is a clever way to get backlinks and because he decides what the anchor text should be his ranking for this search term will increase. his co-sponsor for this contest is IAWMD. good luck with your contest. that is a clever way of advertising.

use meta tags to generate traffic

using meta tags within the html of your site helps google and other search engines to figure out what your website or blog is all about. strange most do not use these tags. i guess most editors do not offer a feature to set the value for the meta tags. even blogger itself does not provide an easy way to set it. so you have to edit html of the template directly.
i added the following line within my header section:

"meta content='traffic, clicks, seo, money' name='keywords'"

make sure you tell the search spiders what your site is about

using buzz words to generate traffic

a lot of traffic will always be based on search engines like google and yahoo. so you have to give them what they are looking for or better what the users are looking for. they are certain buzz words many people are interested in.
in my last post i already wrote two big buzz words. sex and money....if your website or blog doesn't provide any information to these words you will generate a lot of traffic for your website who are not really interested in what you have to offer....so they will quickly leave. that's not what we want to achieve.
so you have to use buzz words that your potential visitor will be looking for and so generate traffic!! i used "generate traffic" frequently within this post because i think many people will use this search term.
right now "simpsons - the movie" is a real hype according to http://alexa.com/. so if you have a blog related to comics or movies you should make a post about it.
well if you are as evil as http://www.johnchow.com/ you could make a post about it without being related to the topic at all....just generate traffic...some of these will be interested in your site even if they didn't search for you

building traffic

building traffic....that is all this blog is about. finding different ways to build traffic. i will test different approaches and see how it is drawing people to this site.

we will see how the traffic develops which each post and it demonstrate what are good and cheap ways to generate traffic for your website or blog.

there are some topics that seem to generate traffic all by themselves...like money or sex. i guess paris hilton is a good example ;-)
so, sex sales and money is sexy ....that is like a perpetum mobile. all you have to do is keep getting press...no matter good or bad. news means traffic.

my news right now is that i am going to give away 3 coupons for cd-wow.net. there are only worth 1€ (~ 1.30$) but all you need to do is read this blog. i will post the codes within the next 3 days.
