It’s Traffic Day (Or: Digg is Over-Rated)

Posted by: Rea Maor In: Internet and SEO - Wednesday, June 13th, 2007

A little list of links about link traffic. How to make search engines your friend with SEO (search engine optimization) and how to get the most traffic for your blog:

  • 21 Tips to increase blog traffic Some sound, common sense advice.
  • Performancing’s “3 Ways to Immediately Increase Search Engine Traffic” If I had my way, everybody would read this. This article cuts through more myths and fallacies about SEO in one place than any ten other articles put together.
  • How to rank well with MSN. Because MSN is so special, it gets special rules!
  • An SEO forum. The point to this link is that it’s a good place to lurk. Just read through and see what other web masters are saying. Sort the truth from the myths, and find out what’s new in the world of web traffic.
  • SEO Articles & Resources Many illuminating articles here from a site about driving traffic for business purposes. For instance, did you know that Google has cycles, like the phase of the moon? It’s called “the Google Dance Syndrome”. Much more at this site explains the inner workings of those mysterious entities called search engines. Read up here before you try sacrificing a bat or something – it really is more science than magic.
  • PageRank explained Specific to Google, and how their patented page ranking algorithm works. Yes, it’s legal to give this information out; no, it is illegal to copy their efforts.
  • Creating a ‘Digg Culture’ We had to put one from pro-blogger in here! This one is particularly worth a second look, because it talks about the Digg culture and how to draw it.

For my own point of view, I think Digg is over-rated. Digg visitors are wonderful, but they have this super-attractive feed site that they check back to to find out what’s new, and just like that, they’re gone again. Web masters are starting to respond to the host of social bookmark sites out there – there’s more to life than just Digg. There’s even more to life than Digg clones.
