Web Traffic Article

I find the best way to use it is to type in my subject in quotes. That way Google only alerts me when any news comes up just for that particular phrase. Otherwise, I would get alerts for any news that comes up with any of the words in my phrase.

Anyway, the reason I'm even mentioning Google Alerts is because I have been receiving TONS of new information lately, it seems every hour I get more Alerts and this tells me two things.

1) There are many new websites coming onto the Internet (that's nothing new)

2) Many more websites are continuously adding information!

AND that tells me that everything that I'm reading about Search Engine Optimization is true!

What I'm reading is that CONTENT truly is KING. All content, new content, continuously fresh content, data, data, data!!!!

Basically, the more information (relevant information of course) you have on your website, the higher your rankings will be, the more audience you'll be attracting, the more sales you'll receive, the more exposure you'll get and the more links you'll have.

Think about it, part of getting UP on the search engines is getting other websites to link TO you. That's easy enough to do with search engines and directories. But it's a bit harder to get other regular websites to link to you. So, many people participate in a link exchange type of program. That's good, but what's even better is having other websites link to you because you have something GOOD to say! These are ONE WAY links, in other words you don't have to reciprocate the link! These ONE WAY links score more points (to search engines).

I know I've been harping on this for a long time and I've opened many blogs for my clients and I give all my monthly marketing clients a new keyword phrase every month to help inspire them to write an article (about that keyword phrase) in their blogs and maybe even their websites.

But, I have to admit, it's a losing battle. I wish I could sit and write articles for every one of my clients every week! I KNOW that would bring in more customers, more revenue, more, more, more!! I KNOW because I've done it on my own website and it absolutely, 100% works, without a doubt.

I recently have had a few customers call and ask me "What else can I do?" -- "I'll spend more money but what can I do?" -- my reply to them is WRITE!!!! If you can't write an article, hire someone to write an article (my friend and article contributor Joel Kweskin can help you). But however you do it, just do it!!

    I agree – most of the visitors of my blog come after searches through Google and for web traffic they are more important even than social websites like Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo.answers or different forums. Of course, professional web sites like help more for earning traffic, but, if you do not want to pay anything connection with Google search engine is most important. On the other hand I would like to say that If your blog is for entertainment you will have tens more visitors than if it is educational. You will have more visitors and they will remain longer than few seconds if you use attractive visual aids, videos, also sections like “Frequently asked questions” and “Contact us”. The texts must be short, understandable and consistent.

The eToro platform, already a trader favorite, has now received a nod of appreciation from the financial trading industry as a winner of one of World Finance's prestigious annual awards.

eToro's innovative approach to financial trading has been making waves for quite some time now among traders worldwide. The platform's user friendly graphic interfaces and wide range of ground breaking community tools have captured the attentions of novices and experts alike, who now take part in eToro's vibrant and active social trading network. With its open and daring approach, eToro has now managed to not only become one of the most popular trading platforms online, but to also receive a seal of approval from an already established financial institution.

“Our vision is to become the first global market place for everyone to trade and invest their funds in a simple and transparent way”, said eToro CEO, Johnathan Assia. “eToro already transformed the way people trade today, and we thank our community of over a million traders for helping us win this award that recognizes eToro's achievements in the financial trading arena”

World Finance magazine launched its annual World Finance Awards in 2007 with the goal of identifying industry leaders that represent the benchmark of achievement and best practice in the financial and business world. To determine the winners, World Finance magazine used an independent panel of judges headed up by Editor Alexander Redcliffe. The Panel followed up on the countless nominations, suggestions and contributions of World Finance readers to explore and analyze new trends in order to unearth the best and the brightest pioneers in the FX marketplace.

“We couldn't be more thrilled and honored to win this particular award,” said Assia. “To know that our platform was nominated and then chosen out of the hundreds of nominations is a sign that we must be doing something right. It is especially rewarding to know that our push towards innovation, which has been one of eToro's core values from the start, hasn't gone unnoticed. The challenge now is to keep innovating so we can have a shot at next year's award as well!”

As for eToro's community, they will certainly be thrilled to know that their platform of choice is leading the way in cutting edge trading technologies, and intends to continue to do so for years to come.
