How to Sprinkle Magical Traffic Dust on Your Blog Comments (A Blog Commenting Guide)

Blog commenting rocks!

Blog commenting rocks!

Blog commenting, unfortunately, is one of the most overlooked traffic strategies.

Why is that?

It definitely deserves more credit because it’s actually one of the very best ways to drive highly engaged visitors to your blog.

In fact, blog commenting is the #1 thing I did to drive traffic to my blog when I relaunched it last year, which generated 8,000+ visitors in it’s first 30 days.

Yeah, sure, it’s not as fast as some other traffic methods, but it is simple to do and it’s FREE.

Who doesn’t like free? :) [Read more...]

Why Traffic Does NOT Equate to Money (My Response to Ana Hoffman)

Oh… my… gosh.

There’s so much I want to say about this topic; I just don’t know where to begin!

Alright, so on Tuesday Ana published a totally raw and honest piece about why TGC isn’t making as much money as it should.

I’m telling you, her post was so inspiring and it really got me souped up because I’d planned on writing a similar post this week.
