Day 24 of 30 Day Challenge – Traffic: Go or No Go

Ed Dale started with Day 24 training of the 30 Day Challenge, describing the impact of rank on traffic. The Gtrends data on searches/day is based on the #1 position in Google. If you’re not in the number one spot, then there is a drop off. If GTrends suggests that you’re going to get 100 visitors a day in position #1, then you’re going to get about 30 visitors in position #2, and 12-15 in position #3. Once you’re in positions #4 – #10, traffic will tail off. Traffic won’t drop to 0, but we’re talking about a couple of searches per day at most. The credibility and import of this data is represented in a post on the Red Cardinal blog which displays the % share of clickthroughs for the top 10 search engine results based on data accidentally released by AOL.

Ed Dale’s focus on Day 23 of the 30 Day Challenge was writing “slippery” content. The goal being for people to come to your site, read the article and then click the affiliate link.

The conversion rate is the number of people who arrive at the affiliate sales page (after leaving your quality content) compared to the number of people who buy. If you get 1 in 200 then you’re doing well.

Tracking shows you how well you are doing and is an early warning system.

Day 21 of 30 Day Challenge – The Cluster Effect

We started with market research. Next, we used our selected keywords to test. We have to make sure there’s traffic for our keyword(s) or we will be wasting our time. The power of the 30 Day Challenge method “lives or dies on keyword selection.”

Day 20 of the 30 Day Challenge focused on ethical social bookmarking. At the outset, Ed Dale established that social bookmarking and social posting are analogous to a bank account. When you bookmark someone else’s content (which should be something you genuinely like) you are making a deposit. Then, when you bookmark your own content, you make a withdrawal. And there’s nothing wrong with bookmarking your own content. Many professional bloggers socially bookmark their articles.
