Top Blogging Directories
Gaining exposure for your blog is critical to building a following and revenue. After creating compelling copy, titles, descriptions and link strategies, it’s time to list your blog in one or more directories.
There are many paths to building links, such as link baiting or blogroll-link swapping, but few are as easy to implement and cost effective as submitting to blog directories. And good link juice makes for a growing blog.
Here are some top marketing directories you need to know about:
Dealing with Comments on Your Blog
Most blogs allow visitors to post comments on any of the blog posts.
These comments may pertain to the blog posting or may be completely unrelated. The comments may also be positive or negative in nature.
Regardless of the type of comment left by a visitor the blogger may choose to deal with these comments in a number of different ways.
The blogger may answer these comments, block individual visitors from leaving comments in the future or use administrative features to delete comments or set the blog to require approval of the comments before they are posted.
Have you ever had your blog hacked?
I have and it’s not very nice. There was some crazy message on my
home page for over 48 hours and it took a lot of work to put right.
Meanwhile all the traffic going to my blog was going to the hackers
It’s not a very nice situation to be in but I was lucky as it was
just an amateur hack. Some hacks can send spam from your account or
worse still compromise the security of every visitor to your site.
Sometimes the only solution is to delete your site.
How to Make Your Blog Posts Engaging
When a blog post has been read your reader should want to hang around to ask questions, comment and see what else you have to bring to the table, so to speak. After all, we are talking about creating potential long term relationships here. Try these Tips for Writing Engaging Content below.
1. Always Have an Engaging Opener
The opening sentence should capture the reader’s attention right from the word go. Remember, your readers can get all kinds of facts online so make yours unique. They want something that will ignite their curiosity, motivate their thought process and get them engaged and wanting more. If need be make your opener witty and outrageous if need be. Give your posts a personality.
Converting Every Visitor into A Subscriber
If a person visits your website and leaves, chances are that he or she will not come back, especially if there are no compelling reasons to do so. After all, we all behave rather impulsively on the Internet, so much so that we can easily forget where we were 10 web pages ago.
But the bottom line is that your visitor may not come back to your website again. If 1,000 visitors visit your website, leave and never come back again, you can imagine the amount of potential revenue lost, simply because they do not come back. You could have converted a fraction of the visitors into your customers.
There are hundreds if not a thousand ways to make money online.
One of our biggest problems as Internet Marketers is that we think we need to know them all. But in reality we only need to know a few of these ways, and perhaps be a master of one only.
We are in an industry that is rapidly expanding, day by day and with that it brings so many distractions to the average Internet Marketer. There are new product launches all the time and it is impossible to keep up. Therefore you need to be even more focused and dedicated to one tactic, the one that is going to earn you a living online.
Just recently I saw a well-known marketer on his blog complaining that his email open and response rates had nose-dived …and then he actually went on to claim that “email is DEAD!”
Well, there are two types of people who’ll tell you that, and you need to avoid them both like the plague!
No 1. The first is the ‘no-value’ marketer who sends nothing but untargetted low-value promotions to his list day-after-day. Well, if you do that then *of course* no-one’s going to read your messages!
No 2. The second is the new-kid-on-the-block self-proclaimed social media guru who only wants to SELL you his new course on the latest social media craze-of-the-month…
Do you think we should be paying attention to EITHER of these guys??
But wait, let me prove just how dangerous the ‘email is dead’ myth actually is…
Only ONE recent email promotion alone to our list produced over $1,700 in affiliate sales so far, with future recurring commissions as well.
Why? Because the email **added value** and was highly RELEVANT…
You see the key to getting your emails actually opened and for people to **take action** is to increase the relevancy of your message to your email list.
And the best way to do this, bar none, is via SURVEYS and QUIZZES…
Now previously, to create surveys with differentiated and automated follow-up sequences you needed either to invest in expensive programmers to write complicated, custom scripts, or purchase high-end packages like Infusionsoft.
1. First, imagine if you could easily and quickly create custom surveys on your blog that capture your prospects email details AND tell you exactly what they’re interested in.
2. Not only that, but according to their answers you can send them immediately to a different landing page (with custom, tailored content or offers according to their interest).
3. And even BETTER, you can add these prospects automatically to a different autoresponder list in aweber or whatever email software you use!
If you run a pet products website you can ask your visitors which pet they own (e.g. dog, cat, rabbit etc) and what their current most important problem is (hair loss, itchy skin etc). You can then redirect them to a RELEVANT offers page and follow-up with them by email with RELEVANT tips, advice and of course, more offers!
Whatever business you’re in, you should be able to survey your prospects and customers in order to give them more targeted and therefore RELEVANT messages.
It could even be as simple as showing different case studies that your prospects will most closely identify with (e.g. property investors, financial traders, public speakers etc)

Inbound links are the key to search engine ranking. But not all links are equal. Links to sources that are related to the theme of the Web site are extremely valuable.
For example, if you are a wedding planner, “marriage” hundreds of Web site operators need to qualify other links of link weddings and keywords.
Incoming links to content that is related to the theme of the website are called “posts”. Many contextual links is the key to getting the first page on Google, Yahoo and Bing.
