LINKS

Most people think about getting more traffic to their website through links posted to websites, forums, and other places. But although those are popular ways to build traffic to a website, they are not the only ways. Here are some other ideas: 1. Make another website that is full of content In order to get more people to their website, some people build a second website for which they write articles and post them. These articles are about the subject of the other website. For example, if the original website is about jewelry, the second website can have articles on about different kinds of gemstones and how to care for them. In the articles, the person can link to their other website. 2. Put articles on an existing site If a person doesn’t want to build another webpage, they can add a page to their website. This gives the visitor more information about the different items on the website. If they have a website that sells different types of candles, they can write articles about different types of candles and then link them to the sales page. Because this type of article is attracting people who are interested in the topic, you may find that they are going to be willing to buy items from the website. It also shows that you are very knowledgeable about the products and that people are having their questions answered before they ask them. 3. Article submission sites Another great place to get traffic to your website is to write articles that pertain to your subject and post them to article directories. The website can be linked in your article as a reference and, unlike link exchanges, you don’t have to post it on your own website. As has been shown, articles and the written word help a lot when someone is trying to get more traffic to a website. That is one reason why copywriting services are so big – the people who write articles know what a powerful tool the written word is. Bookmark to: Hide Sites

Twitter Search is undergoing some interesting changes under the direction of Santosh Jayaram the former VP of Search Quality at Google. The most exciting change is that Twitter is going to start crawling the content of links posted to index the content of the destination pages as well as the text in the tweet. They are also looking at my suggestion about ranking results based on the reputation & relevance of users. Twitter Search will also get a reputation ranking system soon, Jayaram told me. When you do a search on a “trending” topic (a topic that is so big it gets its own link in the Twitter.com sidebar), Twitter will take into account the reputation of the person who wrote each tweet and rank search results in part based on that. We’ve always known that search is key to Twitters revenue and these changes would probably make it the second most important search tool after Google. That’s massive.
