How to Attract MORE TRAFFIC!

Posted in manifesto, Marketing by Jeff Graves on September 27, 2006

Nope, I’m not the genius here, it’s Seth Godin, uber-marketing guru and all-around great thinker…Check out his Squidoo lens on increasing your website traffic.

 One of the things that I find fascinating about publishing a blog, is the way that people come across your posts.  While I started this blog as “scratch pad” for my ideas around starting a business, I also wanted to use it as a learning experience.  And, learning how to build an audience and attract traffic is certainly a worthwhile undertaking.  My one caveat, is that I want to do it while publishing posts that matter to ME.  I don’t intend to start blogging about Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan here, or writing sordid tell-alls about my past romantic conquests, even though that might attract a certain audience.  (OK, maybe the sordid (NOT!) details of my romantic escapades probably WON’T be a big draw).

 But, I might just try a few things as experiments…maybe I already have, no?

    I’m also fascinated by building traffic and viewship from scratch and is one of the primary reasons I ventured in to starting my blog. It has been a fruitful experience and is quickly turning in to a new passion.
