How to Get More Traffic and Traction by Promoting Your Content Like a Boss

How to Get More Traffic and Traction by Promoting Your Content Like a Boss

Some bloggers seem to have all the luck.

They get way more shares than you. They get tons more email subscribers than you. They get much higher search rankings than you.

And it sucks, right?

Because their content is good, but it’s not great.

Certainly it’s not that much better than yours.

So what are they doing differently?

Why is their content so much more successful than yours?

The difference is in the way they promote it.

Announcing “Google Authorship: The Complete Handbook for Getting Respect, Readers and Ratings” (Get It Free)

Newsflash:

There are big changes coming to the way Google looks at your content.

Instead of just looking at what you say, they’re also starting to study who you are – your expertise, your friends, your influence, not only on your own site, but on every page across the web.

If you’re an authority, your content will get a boost to its rankings, regardless of where you publish it. And if you’re nobody? Well, you’ll be even more invisible than ever.

It’s a new feature Google is rolling out called “Google Authorship”. Paired with “Author Rank” – a hotly-anticipated way of giving trusted writers better better rankings – it’s a game changer for online writers. The details are still being sorted out, but they are officially tracking you. If you’re serious about your search engine rankings, you have to prepare.

The good news?

We got you covered. :-)

Today, we’re announcing Google Authorship: The Complete Handbook for Getting Respect, Readers and Ratings. It’s a massive 15,352 word guide, walking you step-by-step through absolutely everything you need to know to prepare for the upcoming changes and get as much traffic as possible.

It’s also the coming out party for Glen Long, the new Managing Editor here at BBT. He’s worked with us full-time for a few months now, editing all of the posts you’ve seen lately, but this is his first post.

And it’s a doozy. For months now, he’s immersed himself in the details to compile the most comprehensive guide about Google Authorship ever written. He’s also going to update it as Google rolls out new changes, keeping you constantly informed.

It’s all totally free. No registration or anything.

All we ask is you share it with your friends and link to it whenever you talk about Google Authorship. Click here to take a look.

An Open Letter to All the Bloggers Cluttering the Web with Forgettable Content

An Open Letter to All the Bloggers Cluttering the Web with Forgettable Content

Have you ever gotten an email from a reader who said your writing changed their life?

How about other bloggers? Are they still talking about a particular post years after you published it?

Or is it the opposite?

Visitors just seem to come and go, never commenting, never linking, never sharing, just quickly scanning your posts and then moving on, forgetting about you forever.

If that’s the boat you’re in, I certainly sympathize, but brace yourself, because what I’m about to say will be painful:

You’re not trying hard enough.

Yes, I know those are impossibly high standards. Yes, I know it takes everyone time to learn their craft. Yes, I know there are only a few dozen bloggers in the world who can answer yes to both of those questions.

But if you’ve been blogging for a year or two, and you still can’t answer yes to either of them, then Houston, we have a problem.

Fortunately, it’s a problem we can fix. Let’s start by going back to where it all started. More

7 Ways to Fascinate Your Readers and Build a Hugely Loyal Following

Are you spellbinding?

Let’s be honest.

It’s a huuuuge challenge.

Probably the biggest challenge each blogger faces.

Because your readers suffer from many distractions.

Social media. Email. Other blogs. TV. Radio. Phone calls. Texts. A car driving past. People talking. Music.Thoughts popping up.

How the hell can you keep your readers spellbound?

How can you keep your readers glued to your content until your last sentence?

How can you keep them yearning for more?

It’s not easy.

But you can learn how to master the art of being fascinating. Enchanting. Captivating. Almost mesmerizing.

How?

You just need to understand the triggers to being fascinating. Once you apply these triggers, your readers will hang on to every word you write. More

The Brad Pitt School of Blogging Superstardom

This is a guest post by Johnny B. Truant. Johnny is offering a great deal right now for anyone who hasn’t yet launched their blog or is looking to start a new one: Until November 30th, Johnny will set up your blog for free.

Let me ask you a question…

Do you think people would pay Brad Pitt $1,000 to fix a toilet?

Of course they would.

Because he’s Brad Pitt.

It doesn’t even matter if Brad knows how to fix a toilet. He’s Brad Freakin’ Pitt.

Thousands of people would pay simply to have him hang out in their bathrooms — and, honestly, probably break their toilets even further. They’d pay because Brad is famous, and fame makes us like people.

When we like people, we want to be around them… and then, if those likable people have products and services, we want to work with them and buy things from them. More
