Get Better Traffic with Anchor Text!

24 05 2007

I guess some people would ask first, “What the heck is anchor text?”  GOOD question, and in a short answer is linked text is usually relevant to the landing page. The objective of search engines is to provide highly relevant search results; this is where anchor text helps, as the tendency is, more often than not, to hyperlink words relevant to the landing page.

 For example John Chow likes to use “Make Money Online”.  Do you see how I linked his tag-line to his site?  Make Money On-line is the ANCHOR text, and the landing page?  HIS website in this example!  John Chow speaks a lot about making money on-line so it is relevant to the anchor text, and it also helps his ranking when others use this to link to his site! Matter of fact he ASKS you to do it that way!

I read a while back CLICK HERE is used a lot in sites that offer their readers the link to Adobe for their program to read their articles in .pdf.  In the search engines if you check to see WHO has the highest ranking for the words “CLICK HERE” it would be THEM!  Click here has nothing to DO with their software at all, but something tells me they don’t mind the ranking they get for using it!  On the funny side its a good example of something NOT relevant if you think about it! 

Use your keyword tools to come with up a tagline that would be revelant, and something people actually SEARCH for!  I was thinking about “build a store online“, but it doesn’t seem to popular!  I will have to brainstorm, and come up with something SOON!

Remember if your sites name is jackflash.com it may not be all that relevant to what your SITE is about!  Remember that search engines also don’t like those anchor text being to long.  Keep it short and simple!  “jackflash.com home of the really fast photo developing” is WAY to long for a search engine to even bother with you!  SHORT and SWEET!

Keep something else in mind as well!  If you are signing up with a directories, webring, etc and they give you the opportunity to give that tag line instead of your website USE IT!  That is also Anchor text!

Blog about money online has an excellent article to continue your reading on the subject now that you have the basics!

Now get that anchor text, and drive that TRAFFIC home!

Helpful Hint to get increase web traffic to your site!

9 05 2007

I was talking to some people I know that build websites for their clients, and they mentioned something about submitting articles online as a way of getting traffic to your site.  I know WE write blogs don’t we?  We submit to ping services, etc right?  SURE that is something of course!  I’m talking submitting articles to directories online. 

It has to be something interesting, and NO it shouldn’t be about your business.  Something general you may know about.  I had completely forgotten about this type of thing, until my friend reminded me about an article I had written for a business newsletter years ago.  I have a small business, and I couldn’t afford the room or the expense of an employee but I really needed HELP!  I wrote an article about having a ‘virtual assistant’ that helped me grow my business.  I did plugs here and there talking about my services that I did, but for the most part I was talking about the growing pains of a small business needing an extra pair of hands!  I really wasn’t ready for the ’employee’ phrase due to all kinds of issues.  I found a lady that worked with me via the internet.  I used a chat window, had an online calendar, task lists, etc.  It was helpful because she could make follow up calls when I was gone, and follow up on purchase orders I had placed.  When I was out of the office I could forward my calls to her phone!  It was very much of an unknown type of situation, but I also knew I wasn’t the ONLY one in this boat!  The article was a success!  At the end of the article I plugged myself and my company of course!  It really generated some traffic for me as well!

Find yourself some of the free article directories, and SURE make sure you use this to place a link in here and there to your site.  Since this is your property the people that may use your articles are not to ‘change’ anything, and there you have it!  Instant LINK traffic to your site!  Pretty cool huh?

From what I have gathered from my reading the search engines send out their resources to crawl these sites much more often than they do other sources!  Not only do you get your articles indexed quicker, but with your link in there it may get your site crawled more often as well! 

OHHHH!  AND don’t forget to place a little piece at the end to talk about yourself, and your online ventures!

Content Search Engine Friendly?

1 05 2007

I just got done reading an article that was titled, “HELP ME my Mom is my only blog reader!”  I just had to giggle my heart out at that title ya know?  I’m sure most people when they start up a website or blog…or BOTH they announce to their friends and family with an email LINK for them to partcipate!  That will give you some traffic of course!  I myself belong to a number of forums online or communities, and I will place my information in the signature area!  I did this before I read this article, because I had seen it done by others!  I’m sure you have also!  If you post enough its like a commercial that tickled your fancy, and you see it enough and they are counting on you running to the store and buying that product!

You can also see by the stats WHAT is drawing in the traffic, and what they are reading!  I helped one year to plan a trip with a group of friends, and I placed a blog out there so the information was complete and no need for 10 millions calls!  We made decisions on where to stay, what to do, and WHO would bring what to this gathering!  For fun I went to bravenet, and got a counter and with that gave me some stats!  The trip was for people that were coming from all directions, and the place we were staying NONE of us had been there!  So a number of us found articles, pictures, facts, etc on the location.  With time (it was about a year planning) I noticed that we were starting to get traffic!  LOL It wasn’t for that purpose (the blog), but it was funny we figured it was all the informational stuff we were placing on there!  Bravenet showed me what search engines, what they typed in to find us, etc.  WordPress has some of that included, but its not as complete as other programs.  You really can’t import anything that I have found (like bravenet counters) either due to the no java rule!

ANYWAY>>>> the article has some fun and pretty straight forward tips!  It spoke about joining and participating in other blogs, websites, groups, community etc online.  Its a good way of placing your signature site on your posts, and get to know others that might link to you!  It had some small basic tips, but as my example of our trip planning blog with time THEY WILL COME!

Here was another site with 19 tips to draw attention to your site!

What about Directories?

How To Get Better Acceptance In Directory Submissions? « Directory Submission Blog

Was an interesting article about directories!  If you look towards the bottom of our blog you will see a section called ‘Recipital Links”, and I have a number of blog directories listed there.  For now I have decided I will go with some free directories until I learn a little more about them.  I realize some you have to pay for, and as I learn a bit more about them I may use those as well!

There are number of places that will show you links to directories.  Follow the advice in the above article, and pick out which ones will work for you!  Its a great way of driving traffic to your blog, and then you STORE for more sales!  Keep in mind there are directories for different areas.  You have directories for those that write ebooks, gardening, SEO, etc.  If you do a search I bet you will find directories around your interest, and in the end THIS is who you are targeting and will benefit you the most!

LIST  that found during a search on the internet!

I did a tag search on wordpress, and here are some good examples of different types of directories:

Geared Towards India

Geared Towards Science

Geared Towards Business Services

Geared Towards Ebooks

Geared Towards SEO

Geared Towards Gardening
