Fight the recession by blogging – and marketing – smarter, not harder. If you’re already tapping the most cost effective marketing tool ever – blogging – here’s a quick, easy, steady, effective and FREE way to build your blog traffic.
Each Tuesday & Wednesday about 500 bloggers gather at WordlessWednesday.com to post links to their photo-only posts. Join the Wordless Wednesday gang and you build traffic in 4 ways:
- Increase your post count. Putting up a weekly picture is an easy way to add 52 posts per year.
- Increase in-bound links. WW gives you a weekly link to your blog post. Leave comments on other WW blogs for additional trackback links.
- Increase your comment count. Participating in WW will add comments and new commenters to your site. Even “Happy Wordless Wednesday” comments will boost your search engine rankings.
- It’s fun and adds to the overall interest of your blog. Too many blogs are text-heavy and lack interesting visuals. This will help you get more visual.
Here’s how to boost your traffic with Wordless Wednesday:
- Every Tuesday: Post an interesting or fun picture to your blog, preferably one that involves your business, products, employees or customers.
- Tuesday evening: Go to www.WordlessWednesday.com. Follow the instructions and post a comment and link to your picture post on Wordless Wednesday – Tuesday Edition.
- EARLY Wednesday am: Go to www.WordlessWednesday.com. Follow the instructions and post a comment and link to your picture post on Wordless Wednesday.
Extra traffic tip: Visit a few other WW entries and leave comments. Use your photo post URL when placing the comment. Many times the blog owners will reciprocate with a comment on your blog.
Now go forth, blogger, and be wordless.
