How to find topics to write articles for

31 07 2019

Everyone has known that writing articles is an effective SEO method to promote a web site. People use it to increase the link popularity and then PR of a web site as a consequence. It would be easy for you to find out some topics to write for at the very beginning. But sooner or later, you will face a situation that you cannot find anything to write for. And a lot of time will be spent on finding a topic instead of really writing some valuable content.

So, what can you do if you are in this situation. Below are some very effective ways I am using now.

1. Find Topics from Helium

You can find tremendous topics from Helium. As a web site where knowledge rules, people in Helium are required to share their knowledge under the given topics, and those topics could be the potential one you can write for. But how to filter out the topics which have close relationship with the content you plan to write for? There is a simple way you can follow. A search tool is provided by Helium, you can type in the key word related to your web site, system will return a list of topic from Helium which are related to the key word. And you can review all those topic to see what you can write for. The additional benefit here is that even you don’t know the answer for those topics, you can read through what the others have written about and then come out your ideas. Easy, right?

Another great thing about Helium is that you can write for it and get paid when each time your articles are read. Even it’s not a big deal, but you still can make some.

Find the topics from Helium has become the most important method I have used to promote my web site, and this is really very powerful.

2. Publish review for latest news in your industry

People tend to write the guideline under some specific knowledge area, but guideline is guideline, you cannot find out a lot of topics about it. So, writing review for the new events in your industry in the good idea. And there are always some event happened, so you will not be in the situation that lacks of materials.

3. Others

There are also some other methods you can leverage. For example, if you also use Blog to promote your business, you can get some idea from the comments of your visitors left under your blog. But from my viewpoints, the first 2 methods will be able to keep you busy enough. And the content you have written are really what people are looking for.

Blogging and Social Bookmarking for maximum traffic

24 07 2019

Social bookmarking is one the best ways of generating traffic and creating a community around your blog. Your goal is to create a blog that is the authority on the subject. Their are probably many other bloggers out their writing about the same topic as you and you want to get in on that as well. To compete with them we are going to use a little elbow grease, some social bookmarking, and watch as the traffic comes flowing to your blog.

Here are 3 steps you can take to destroy your competition:

1. Write the best article you can about your subject. What I mean is, make sure to create an article that everybody in the world just has to read. Think like a reporter. What kind of titles do people use to draw a crowed and grab eyeballs. If you need help finding ideas search through digg.com’s home page and see the articles that have been voted for the most.

2. Submit your articles to as many social bookmarking sites as you can find. This is the way you are going to generate links and traffic to your site. The links come free from every person’s profile page when they vote for your article, and the traffic will come when your article reaches the first page of those social bookmarmking sites. The amount of social bookmarking sites you want to submit your article to is up to you. I usually use only 5 or 6 for my best articles and I don’t bookmark all my articles.

3. Repeat the process. Make sure to try again if you fail to reach your traffic goals. Social bookmarking is great, but the visitors are interested in the article, not your blog…yet. You need to increase your exposure by writing amazing content over and over again. Remember, never give up and watch the traffic flow to your site.

Increase your PageRank using ViralTags

21 07 2019

ViralTags are a great way to increase your pagerank and technorati authority.

======= Copy and Paste below this line =======

Instructions:

1.) Copy and paste the matrix of “ViralTags” below.

2.) Substitute the Host Tag and one of the “Viral Tags” in the matrix with your anchor text of choice with your blog’s URL. Please keep anchor text to a max of 3 words to keep the matrix size manageable.

3.) When you get a ping back from someone that has your link in one of their “Viral Tags”, practice good karma by copying his/her Host Tag’s anchor text (automatically the associated link will also be copied) and paste it over one of your “Viral Tags” below.

4.) Encourage and invite your readers to do the same and soon this can grow virally.

Host Tag: Ashwin Khanna Dot Com

Pro Blogging Tips | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags | ViralTags |

Important: Once I get a ping back from you (I promise to do the best I can), I will add your anchor text and the associated link you designate as “Host Tag” here, replacing one of the “ViralTags” from the matrix above. As more and more bloggers copy and paste this matrix, the more backlinks you will have with your anchor text. If everybody who copy and paste from your blog does the same, pretty soon this will spread and go viral. So, the sooner you participate, the more links with anchor text you will receive.

Blog Review - Ryan Shamus Dot Com

18 07 2019

Finally I found a bit of time to post my first blog review - Been busy with emails and questions regarding my competition.

So, Ryan Shamus Dot Com - Who is he? Here’s a bit from his about me page:

Ryan Shamus is just a normal guy who is trying to blast his blog in to the highest realms of the blogosphere! It might take several hundred years to do so, but half the fun is trying, right?I love to fish, blog, read, tinker with PC’s, think, brainstorm, shoot, eat, eat, sleep, play video games, watch good movies, listen to music, eat, and many other things!I have a vision and goal to eventually earn enough money from online ventures to fully support myself with a full time income from it. It’s been done by so many other people, so I want to prove to myself and others that I can do it too!

Ryan has only been blogging for 3 months, yet he boasts 104 posts, a technorati link rating of 499 and an Alexa rank of 192,999. Nice!! His slogan of ‘Helping bloggers along the way’ is essentially what his blog does. His daily posts have lately consisted of promoting different contests for bloggers to participate in, but previously posts on making money online have proved to be a hit with readers.

Some of his top posts include:

An essential test to see if the blog can straight away engage the reader - i.e. that the reader straight away knows what the blog is about, is the 5 second test. Essentially you bring up the site for 5 seconds and then close it. If you fully understand what the site is about when you have closed the site page, then the blog has passed.

I went along with the test for Ryan’s blog and in the 5 seconds, managed to remember his bright title and categories but not as much his dim slogan. Ryan, change the colour of ”helping bloggers along the way” so new readers straight away know the point of your blog. It’s just a suggestion.

His blog sidebars are not that bad - however loading times for Adsense are long. He also has a featured sites section and a host of ‘money makers’ which seem to all come from ClickBank. He uses Kontera Content Link too, however these just show up randomly.

Personally, for a blog of 3 months, I think Ryan has done extremely well. It seems like he has built up a group of loyal readers, and churns out the posts consistently. The only thing that I am not too sure about is the blog template. The gap on the right hand side is just a waste of space. Maybe it looks differently in FireFox?? Who knows, but this is definitely a blog to keep coming back to.

Good job Ryan - 7/10
