Category — Increase Your Traffic
So I am in the process of building several niche blogs for my affiliate marketing network. My biggest goal after writing some quality anchor content, is to generate some traffic. (Ya can’t make no money if ya ain’t got traffic)
One of the best ways to build traffic is to rank well in the search engine results for your target keywords. The biggest contributer to your search engine results is the quality and quantity of links pointing to your site. A great way to build quality links to your new blog is by leaving quality comments on other blogs in your niche.
Now, I’ve always struggled with coming up with relevant non-spammy comments that are unique. However, a great way to get around that and still get a back link is through the use of trackbacks.

It’s always fun when you see your site popping up in Google’s search results. I remember the first time I saw WallerBlog come up on the first page of a Google search. It felt like I was legitimate, I had proved myself, I was successful. It’s a bit of an ego trip.
Anyways…I was doing some keyword research today. I went over to Shoemoney’s SERPs tool and found out it was down. No good. It’s a great tool. You type in your site and a keyword and this tool will tell give you the position that Google is currently listing your site for that keyword.
Since Shoe’s tool was down, I went digging for something comparable that I could use for some keyword research. Low and behold, I came across SeoDigger. SeoDigger spits out a list of keywords for which your site ranks high enough to be in Google Top 20.
Here are my results:
Check that out, number 1 for my name (that’s always good) and number 1 for “nerds making money”
I guess that proves it. I am a nerd making money!
I made over $4,500 profit from Market Leverage last month!

I work with speakers, authors, coaches and consultants who are always on the lookout for effective ways to reach their market, gain visibility and establish credibility. One would be hard pressed to find something as easy and simple as blogging to achieve these outcomes.
