I am often asked what is the most effective method of driving traffic to a blog is and how to get the traffic consistently. I have tried every possible formula I could think of for more than a year. I took more than one blog class every week for over a year and tried every single technique that was presented.

Some things worked other techniques didn’t even make a dent. What makes a technique effective or worthwhile? Try Googling your name and see how many results there are. Then install Alexa’s Toolbar and keep track of your ranking. When your Google results become more than 100,000 or 1,000,000 and your Alexa ranking becomes less than 1 million, then what you’re doing is effective.

I have found a combination of techniques to be the most effective. I use Social Media such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter to push new people to my blogs. I use HootSuite.com to send one message to all of my Social Media profiles simultaneously.

I post at least one video every week and leave a message on one to three of my Linked in Groups. I will typically get more unique hits from the LinkedIn Groups than most of the other processes.

And then, there’s article writing. There are more than 13 million results when searching article submission using Google. Imagine trying to find the right ones for your topic. It would take hours a week to keep up with all of them.

There is an alternative! There is a free software program which is designed to submit your articles to every ezine directory available, with one push of a button. It’s fairly simple to use and has built in instructions that are truly easy to follow.

Download ASHelper and give it a try. And make sure to keep track of your rankings and Google results and watch your success through your numbers. You’ll also want to download Adobe Air to complete the package. Just follow along the prompts and you’ll soon have more results on Google Search with your name and website as well as more traffic coming back to your site.

Writing an article takes about an hour and the amount of visibility it will bring to you is priceless. I submit an article every week, sometimes two and have been able to increase my Google results from 100,000 to 200,000 in the past few months. It looks good when you’re talking with potential radio talk show producers and adds to your credibility.

I talk with a lot of writers and authors who find it difficult to write new material every week. It’s one thing to write a book start to finish, but the average is two years to complete the book. The longest it took me was 3 1/2 years for a research book I did, “Be Your Own Boss Guide” and I’ll never tackle another project like that one. It was gruesome.

However, the shortest time was 3 1/2 weeks. I locked myself up in a cabin up at Lake Tahoe starting the week before Thanksgiving and December 9th I had the book printed and in my hands, which was a good thing since I had a speaking engagement the very next day. Originally I thought it would be cumbersome and more daunting than interesting tokeep my blogs up, but the truth is, once I developed the habit, I thoroughly enjoy the process.

I write for an hour a day to keep up four blogs, including the Social Media backlinks marketing steps. That’s not bad. As I’m driving around or having conversations with others,an idea might pop into my head and I make a note of it immediately. Again, it’s forming a new habit.

Then I take it to the next level and keep an Excel spreadsheet of all the ideas I have to write about. But let’s say you just can’t or don’t want to muster the time and energy it takes to write every week. Well, you’re in luck! There is now a software program which will scramble your previous articles or posts and make it look like a brand new original work of art. So there are no more excuses.
