How to make your Content and Traffic equal Dollar signs!
How getting Content and Traffic will help you gain money
When looking to monetize a website, the best thing to do is not finding the greatest adsense, affiliate or other kind of money making machine for your blog. You should focus on the blog itself and what you can do to make your blog have the most value ever. Now, what I mean by this is developing your content.
Content goes as follows - it can be picture content, written content, audio content, video content, or a combination of all of those. Why is content important? Well, for a number of reasons:
Niche - you want your content to closely relate to your niche. The worst thing to find is a page titled "How to Play the Piano", and then your content is on tropical birds. That's the quickest way to get someone off your page as well as get Google to say, "What is this?"...*Google Panda strikes* .
Developing your content - you want to put yourself in the mind of the readers. What kind of questions will they want answered? What kind of tips would be most beneficial. What are the commonly thought about topics? How will I engage my readers in the topics, and will my feedback greatly help them out.
Uniqueness - How will you separate yourself from the competitors? Maybe you'll have a section on your page dedicated to something unique. For example, I have a gaming site that has a section dedicated to gaming music. I actually get a lot of traffic that way especially when it correlates to Music Monday (a monday trending topic on Twitter). When you develop your own flavor on certain things, you'll set yourself apart from the pack, and start building niches upon your niche!
The second area is traffic. Content and traffic go hand in hand. By developing your content well, you'll have a lot more stable traffic, but you need to know how to get this information out to the right places.
Solid keyword research is a great way to get your tags correct for SEO purposes. You'd be surprised how much traffic you can get just based off a good mixture of keyword phrases. Even commonly misspelled words will help you get extra traffic to your site. Try to develop a good 5-10 keywords, that should be efficient enough to help your post or site get found by people randomly searching for terms.
Another avenue is social media. Twitter, Facebook, Google + and other social media sites have a great way of building your traffic. Facebook fan pages are excellent for having your traffic stabilized in one place and you can create buttons on or a fan page widget right on your site to help get more centralized traffic. Twitter is great because of the tweeting, direct messaging, and retweeting. I constantly thank Twitter for the Retweets because I've gotten a lot of followers as well as traffic from people retweeting to their lists.
These are just some of the ways how content and traffic play a huge part. Once you get these down pat, you'll easily be able to sell your products because people will look at you like an authority, and you'll be able to get more subscribers. More visitors will click on your links whether they are adsense, contextual links or affiliate products.
