How I Went From 0 to 1,012 Blog Subscribers in 101 Days

How I Went From 0 to 1,012 Blog Subscribers in 101 Days | Rocketts' Review | Scoop.it

An excellent article on how to strategically generate more traffic for your blog by targeting the right audiences for your content.  Very useful for businesses who want to capitalize blogging as a tool for driving up more profits.

 

It took me 101 days to hit 1,012 subscribers. I did it by using a very simple strategy that was free from overwhelm and stress.

 

Most bloggers never get past the 1,000 subscriber mark, or create a profitable online business, not because they aren’t good, but because they are afraid to use the most effective tools available.

 

I worked hard during those 101 days, but I loved every second of it. Looking back, I can still see where I made mistakes, but making mistakes is not the problem, not taking action is.

 

If you can consistently take action, you will achieve your goals.

And the way to consistently have the fuel to take action is to find and follow your passion.

 

We all have something like this inside of us.

If you can find a topic you could die for, you’re on the right track. If someone had a gun to your head and you had to choose one topic to write about for the next few years, what would you choose?

SEO Bing: New "Linked Pages" Feature Allow Users to Influence Search Results

SEO Bing: New "Linked Pages" Feature Allow Users to Influence Search Results | Rocketts' Review | Scoop.it

Bing has launched “Linked Pages,” which allow people to link sites related to themselves in search results for when people search for the person’s name.

 

Pretty interesting, especially since Bing allows users to simply add links that they just like.

 

“Search for yourself,” suggests Ian Lin of Bing Social Search. “Try including your city, school, or employer – for example ‘John Smith Bing’ – to find more results and start linking. Links can include your blog, a personal website, organizations you’re associated with, activities you’re involved with or just sites you like. And as your interests and activities change, you can easily link more. So now when your friends search for you, they’ll not only see trusted results from Bing, but also the pages and sites you’ve linked.”

 

"With Linked Pages on Bing, you can decide how you look to your old roommate, your first crush, or a new friend".

 

You can add your links at bing.com/linkedpages.

 

The Linked Pages are in Beta and US-only at first.
