I am a regular visitor and user of Google Trends. Google Trends is a place I often find useful information and valuable niche information to promote my products. But as the wise men says, “You never really learn anything completely. There is always something more to learn”.
This was precisely what I experienced today. I was browsing through the latest trends at Google and was unable to find anything worthwhile. As I browsed through the various news and stories, I was particularly attracted towards a news that was “hot”. It was about some spiral lights that appeared in the skies in Norway which people were guessing as to what it could be. Some called it a UFO, yet others called it a gimmick and there were few others who blamed Russia’s failed missile launches etc. The news was hot and I was particularly interested in the news because of the UFO angle to it.
I browsed a few sites that had the details of the news about this phenomenon and though of writing a blog post in my personal blog at http://www.apoeticexpression.com. There was no particular intention behind the post. I wrote the post and submitted it.
In the evening when I checked the stats at the blog, I was amazed to see that there were 140% more hits that I had ever received in the blog. My ...
Blog commenting used to be one of the most preferred ways of getting blog traffic to your blogs. Many of the successful internet marketers and bloggers have talked about this is in their books and blogs. This was considered to be one of the easiest modes of getting traffic. But it is no more so!!
If you are surprised as to why your comments are not getting any traffic to your blogs, then the tough truth is that it won’t.
I know you are one of the very frequent visitors to those established blogs from an established blogger. Let me ask you a question. Have you ever read through the comments in the posts that you last read at one of these ...
How many blogs do you have in your favorites list?
I have quite a few in mine. I am a voracious reader and I am frequent visitor to many of the blogs authored by the best bloggers on the internet. Yaro Starak’s entrepreneur’s journey, Jeremy Schoemaker’s shoemoney.com, Carl Ocab’s carlocab.com (I even guest authored a post there), Brian Clark’s copyblogger.com, Daniel Scocco’s dailyblogtips.com and Darren Rowse’s problogger.com, all are blogs that i frequently visit and have subscribed to. These blogs have been a source of learning and information for me over the past few years.
There were certain other blogs as well that were part of my favorites list but which dropped off them in the past few days. If you ask ...
Can you really make money with free materials available on the internet?
I had often asked this question to myself, when I was doing a regular job and happened to hear about the success stories of the internet marketers.
The first thing that I did was to sign up to a few newsletters with the internet marketing gurus, to see what they were promoting and how they were doing it. I found that a lot of these newsletters were talking about getting free money. And I wondered if I could actually get free money. But in a world where there is nothing for free, where will you get get money for free?
You cannot get money for free. You have to work hard ...
Are you using WordPress for your blogs?
WordPress is an amazing CMS and publishing platform especially if your are into blogging. No Content Management Solution is as smooth and easy to use as WordPress and add to it the numerous functionality that WordPress offers and you have a killer tool to publish.
But it is not uncommon for any tool to get stuck up at times and that too at silly things and you then have a recipe for frustration. Most of the responses for any such small issues and snags with WordPress can be found at their support center, but there are still some issues that you will not find an answer to.
If you are not a high investment blogger, you ...
What is the keyword that has given your blog the highest hits so far?
At first when I started blogging, my objective was to read as much material as possible, learn from them, set up my blog and start monetizing them.
After only the first week of setting up my blog, I saw visitors coming in, spending some time at my blog, reading my posts and giving me a few hits on my adsense links. My Google Adsense account showed a few hits and a few cents. I was very happy to see them, and I decided that I should do more with my blogs so that I can make more money online. I put in more efforts and waited to see ...
How many times have you experienced a shortage of time in managing your blogs?
When I started blogging and I entered the world of WordPress, I was overwhelmed with the options that WordPress offered. There was so much that I could do. Everyday I would login to my blog with the intention of writing a few blog posts. But by the time I logged out I found that all I did was upgrade a few plugins, add a few codes to the wordpress theme, in order to customize something, create a backup of my blog and check my blog stats.
I would regret having done all that because none of these activities were productive and I knew I was wasting time doing ...

Twitter List – the latest addition to Twitter.
Are your using Twitter to promote your business? Do you think it is worthy enough to be used?
Twitter has been a part of my promotional strategies since I joined it in June last year. Twitter was a less know phenomenon then. But by the time it exploded in the beginning of this year, I had a fair foothold of the microblogging platform.
I enjoy tweeting. I personally feel that it is a matter of how much you enjoy using this service, that decides if you will use it in your marketing strategy or, not.
If you are not using Twitter, I would recommend you to try to use it.
Okay, so now Twitter has introduced a ...
I had once earlier written about Yaro Starak’s Membership Site mastermind. You can read that post here.
Yaro is very particular about the way he runs his membership courses. He only admits a few people to his course and then closes it for the rest of the year. This time round he has made an exception and has opened the course again for a few days.
Since the time he released this course the last time, there are a lot of people who have made a fortune out of Membership Sites. I am one such online entrepreneur who is currently running 2 membership sites and is making a living online with them. I get a consistent income from ...
