It's been I while since I last wrote on a topic of getting on with one's blog.
Heck, I have to admit that this blog has been just about sliding down the scale of bye-bye-baby. So I thought I'd write about getting new visitors.
We all know that spam is bad and so just flooding other peoples space with links is going to do us no favours at all.
So in order to link to our blogs we must earn the right to place or have placed our link.
This generally means making friends with other bloggers and keeping up with their blog, and commenting and joining in - that's for building community.
The next answer is swapping links - this is for traffic rank (unless you use bloglinker or blogroll in which case it's back to community as Google ignores those links)
Popular methods also include traffic surf (such as Mad-Den Super Surf) and other visitation exchanges. The more targeted the type the better quality of visitors you get.
You should avoid auto-surf as people are generally not looking at your site but an automatic browser is looking and using credits up too.
Another answer is traffic trading. This is a little harder to pigeon hole so I will take a few moments to talk about it.
With a traffic exchange (example) these ideas are joined together to benefit each use. The exchange site often offers a service of some kind and will benefit from hosting the exchange if only one or two visitors per thousand notice the service. Those wishing to join in add their site/domain to the list and are given a number of URLs to send traffic to. Each URL sends the visitor to the main exchange page where they are offered the choice of active sites to visit. Sometimes this is automated.
The different URLs allow the site owner different techniques for having the traffic recorded as no one method is best for all. Members can use their url(s) (such as the one used for the link in the post title) in surf exchanges to send visitors to the page.
The traffic exchange site will often have ways to monitor the quality of traffic and you will find yourself rewarded in accordance to the quality as will as the quantity.
Let us return to the idea of getting links on other peoples blogs. The best way is to arrange an exchange of "hard-links" with similarly contented sites. This will improve your Google Page Rank for the page in question and show your visitors other similar sites creating the sense that your site is slowly becoming something of a centre for great content.
It seems to me that mad-den link swap would be a good place to get new link swapping partner blogs.
This means I'm saying go visit and use it like the link swap classifieds.
Regular readers might be aware that I have been feeling really angry about the builders (who still have not finnished) working outside my home. Really attentive readers might remember that I was attacked by one of them.
Well today was the day that I had enough and I have spent the morning writting a long article on the correct way to paint doors. Not you might say the worlds most interesting topic untill you realise that these cowboys that the local council have employed were required to paint my door.
It took over a week between undercoat and final coat and to suggest they were not to enthusiastic with the sand papering would be like suggesting the pope might be relgiouse.
The paint job is particularly bad and and the final coat even has patches were they missed bits (not to mention lots of runs and brush marks).
Well in tune with the original Beautiful Talker mandate to say nice things only I spent some time researching the task of painting one's front door. I discovered that it is an easy DIY task and that lots of guides existed to help a body do jsut that.
Of course they is the minimum requirement that the body contain a brain and some method of manipulating a paintbrush but that's as taxing as it gets.
As posts go it was quite a long one but it does score highly in the morral victory department. My door still sucks but at least I have shown how it should be done and provided lsits to common amature errors.
You never know the builders might read it and put it in to practice and future jobs might be better... no I don't think that will happen iether but I can hope.
Google Gulp: "1. How does Google Gulp work?
"Well, to comprehend the long version of this answer, you'd need a PhD (from Stanford, natch). The short version is, our brains process data by sending electrical impulses called neurotransmitters between billions of neurons via axons running between synapses, much the way buses travel between stations, or MP3 files travel between felonious suburban teenagers. The molecular compound that fuels Google Gulp speeds up this process by, among various startling feats of neurochemical legerdemain, limiting the activity of the enzyme monoamine oxidase. You think faster – and feel better.
"What's more, through our patented real-time DNA-scanning process, Auto-Drink™, Google Gulp is actually able to "take a picture" of your genetic profile, reconfigure its molecular composition on the fly, and subtly alter your brain's intricate mosaic of axonial patterns in order to facilitate even faster cognitive processing. "
It seems like Googles April fools joke this year was as good as ever.
This feed is down. It will be replaced in good time.
The Beautiful Talker does not care for the outer appearance of the blogger. He does not care for the gender of the blogger.
The Beautiful talker feels that to distinguish bloggers for gender, shape, size, colour, hair, religion or for any other reason that is not the content they produce is wrong.
The Beautiful Talker does not like the fact that bloggers should be advantaged or disadvantage based just on gender. It is not moral or good to promote a link because the writer of the blog is a man or a woman (depends on bias).
The Beautiful Talker now aims to ensure that blogs that use discrimination will not get a link from this blog.
Just for fun I've taken the blog title and Googled it. These are some of the results
