But, for those of you that aren't doing this... trust me... it's golden.
I will make it simple...
Start doing heavy keyword research for each blog post that you create... I mean take it as serious as you would when you write articles, run ppc campaigns, and when you SEO your sites.
Center 80% of your blog around finding non competitive keywords that have great traffic. Trust me... there are non competitive keywords in every niche-even "make money online"
You will drive more traffic to your blog, in shorter periods of time, meaning your blogs will start showing up organically more often and on more pages.
Remember, it's not that hard to get indexed on the first page of the search when you find the right keywords that aren't super competitive.
This technique helps you drive more traffic to your blog and puts more people in front of your affiliate products that you may be promoting.
Admittedly, this technique requires you to go above and beyond with the value you offer. And, you will need to write more keyword dense blog posts, which means that you may need to increase the amount of content that you write to avoid over saturating your posts with too many keywords.
I know that many of you may already be doing this. However, I think that the power of blogging can be taken for granted and often times under appreciated.
If all you did was set aside the necessary time it takes doing very, very extensive keyword research before you post to your blog... you would be amazed at how much more effective your blog would become.
Before I go... let me put something in perspective for you. You already know this but, I have to point this out:
The great thing about blogs is that each post you make has the potential to get indexed in many different places. But, it still links to itself.
A hundred blog posts is equivalent to a hundred different websites.
I really hope that this sheds some light on your current marketing techniques.
