7 Emails You Should Send Your Subscribers (But Probably Don’t)

7 Emails You Should Send Your Subscribers (But Probably Don’t)

Annoying as hell, isn’t it?

When a guy who launched his first blog a couple of months ago is already getting dozens of comments and hundreds of shares anytime he posts something new.

While over in your world, a comment from someone not related to you is still a huge win.

What’s he doing differently? In fact, what sets apart all those bloggers who can rapidly build an insanely engaged audience from those who have to beg and plead just to get a handful of shares?

Is the answer really just “great content?”

Content is important, but plenty of bloggers put just as much time, energy and care into their content as those in the top tier, only to experience 10% of the results.

3 Questions Your Blog Must Answer or Be Doomed to Wither and Die

3 Questions Your Blog Must Answer or Be Doomed to Wither and Die

You’re doing everything you’ve been told.

You’re publishing great content, you’re staying on top of SEO, and you’re all over social media.

You even keep in contact with other bloggers in the hope they’ll get behind your blog.

But your readership still isn’t where you want it to be.

And your dream of working from home, reaching financial freedom, and changing the world in the process seems to be as far away as the day you wrote your first post.

So what gives?

The problem is, even though you’re getting some traffic to your blog, people aren’t subscribing to it.

And if they don’t subscribe, they don’t come back.

When this is the case, no matter how hard you work to get more traffic, the situation can’t change.

Unless you shift your mindset.

So you need to stop worrying about traffic, and start focusing on something else instead.

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.

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.
