Free Targeted Traffic to Your Blog!

Blogging Comments Off on Free Targeted Traffic to Your Blog!

Blogrush is a hot, innovated, and easy way of attracting targeted traffic to your blog, therefore increasing readership.

But what is Blogrush?

BlogRush is a syndication network where other related blogs are advertised on your blog while yours is advertised on theirs. It is FREE to join and works on a system of “syndication credits”.

Blogrush Widget

You earn “syndication credits” based on each time your blog loads the Blogrush widget as well as each time any of your referrals (users that signup after clicking the “add your blog posts” link on the widget) loads the widget. You also earn additional credit based on all the activity through 10 generations of referrals. 1 Syndication Credit = having one of your recent blog post titles served inside the widget on another member’s blog.

Here’s the process:

Note: This setup is for a blog using WordPress with a widgets capable theme.

1) Signup for a FREE account at BlogRush. Be sure to choose the most relevant category for your blog. (Business, cooking, hobbies, etc.) This is very important for presenting your readers with relevant article headlines and ensuring your headlines are displayed on corresponding blogs.

2) After registering your blog and providing your feed URL you will be given a code for a widget that you install on your blog.

  1. Login to your WordPress admin interface.
  2. Go to Presentation then Widgets and create a new Text Widget on your sidebar.
  3. Find and click on the small icon in the right hand corner of this new Widget and put the Blogrush code into it.
  4. Save your changes. You can move the Widget up or down accordingly.
  5. Bingo! You’re done. It may take a little time for Blogrush to display. It has to go through their approval, but that usually happens within 24 hours.

3) After installing Blogrush you’ll need to start actively promoting it. Working on a system of syndication credits, the more bloggers you refer to the Blogrush network the more credits you get. More credits from blog traffic and your referrals’ traffic means a tremendous amount of exposure for your blog!

4) Be sure to create headlines for your posts that make people want to click! These headlines (and only the headlines) will show up on the Bogrush widget. This is your chance to get readers to your blog.

Hot Headlines That Draw Readers Into Your Blog!

Blogging Comments Off on Hot Headlines That Draw Readers Into Your Blog!

Question:
What is usally the first thing that catches your attention when reading an article or scanning a sales page?

Answer:
The Headline – of course!

I would dare say that most columnist, internet marketers, and authors would probably agree. A headline that yanks your eyes to it and seduces you into reading the copy is worth its weight in gold!

You can have one helluva good article written, but if your headline is boring chances are your article won’t get read.

Well here’s a FREE tool that let’s you analyze your headline by calculating its Emotional Marketing Value (EMV).

According to Advance Marketing Institute, creating headlines with high EMV reaches your reader at an emotional level. Invoking their deeper thoughts and getting them involved in your copy.

Being able to create headlines, that get your articles read, is a skill not all of us are born with. Using this tool will help you mix and match combinations of words that will provide the right emotional balance.

Take a look at the screen shot below. I’ve managed to create a headline for this post with a good score of 37.5%. Take a look though at the bottom of the picture where it says “perfect balance”!

EMV Headline Chart

After playing around with the EMV tool for a while I came up with what appears to be an above average title for my “Free Targeted Traffic to Your Blog!” post. Does this mean I’m a professional headline creator? Well, not quite, but it’s still pretty cool!EMV Blogrush Chart
Tip: Try using words like Hot and Free. They usually score pretty high on one or two of the three EMV levels. Can you think of any more?
