Here’s an open solicitation for questions in the 3 areas I focus on:
Social Traffic Generation
I get lots of feedback on general posts, but here’s a chance for you to pose questions and get answers in a future post.
To make things a little easier, here’re some of the foundation between each of the areas I cover, so you can better “get” me and pose a question which might best help you:
I see blogging as the next generation of web publishing. It certainly beats the HTML I was bashing out on a text editor in 1997 when I was managing web portals.
The introduction of RSS and Social Networking/Bookmarking widgets means you can easily get a blog from the starting point to more than 10,000 uniques in less than 6 months after starting.
Someone might say, “Sure, I can do that in a single day by getting my post listed on Digg or one of the other big bookmarking sites”, but what I’m refering to is a consistent stream of traffic, as in a consistent 1,500-2,000 page views per day. Not 50,000 page views today, and 200 page views tomorrow.
MyBlogLog can be a source of highly-targeted, relevant and free traffic if you know how to use it effectively.
But increasingly, spam marketers have been bombarding the social networking site, such that there is a toggle to view messages only from members of your social network (and cut out messages from non-members (potentially spammers).
MyBlogLog obviously views the matter seriously enough to take further measures.
If you’ve experimented with social traffic strategies, you might’ve encountered the Digg Effect (or also known as the Slashdot effect) where a torrent of traffic (upwards of 1,000 unique visitors a second) brings your webhost to a screaming halt.
Matt Coddington over at NetBusinessBlog is masterful at this technique.
