When I start looking at blog statistics it does make me wonder if I have made the most of the traffic I have received. On one of my blogs, for example, I am coming up to 1 million unique visitors, which equates to getting on for 2.4 million page views. When I look at figures like this I ask myself the obvious ‘if only’ things like … if only all of these vistors had paid me $1 or even 50c each visit. Of course life and blogging isn’t like that, or that easy. The reality is that the pages have to have something of interest to visitors which makes them want to get clicking. I’ve always said that traffic = money and I stick with this statement, as a percentage will always click on something – it’s simply what happens. But it’s clicking traffic that = big money . So the more people click the more money we will make. It’s one of the reasons why ads should be geared to whatever is being written. And this is why I like text ads following a post. The post then becomes a selling opportunity in it’s own right, with the side columns and maybe header postion there as ‘back up.’ I guess it’s getting the balance right. Best results, I find, are always from posts where they contain links within the body of the article. They have to be relevant and helpful to the subject matter and, if they are, readers will click. If you can get traffic and thenentice them to click there’s a lot of money to be made. Good luck, Mike. Ads: Mirror CashBack – FREE £5 ! Earn CashBack on your everyday shopping. Over 2000 retailers.
