After 4 days of installing the tracking script of PinoyTopBlogs and asking Yuga to activate it, this blog is now on top 91! It was on top 95 yesterday, and it is still slowly climbing up the top. Yey!
I still prefer ranking high on PinoyTopBlogs than Ratified. Why? Ratified is easy to cheat and manipulate. All you need is tons of backlinks and your Technorati authority will climb up high, increasing your rank in Ratified. But does having many backlinks constitute a successful blog? For me, it only says one thing, you are a successful link builder.
But being on PinoyTopBlogs is a different story. You need traffic. You need unique hits everyday. It’s not that easy to manipulate. You can increase your pageviews by visiting your blog several times, but it will just count as one unique hit. If you hit the top 50 of PinoyTopBlogs, it means that your blog is popular and is widely read.
Does having high traffic constitute a successful blog? I think, that’s the goal of every blogger whose intention is to make money online. Because without traffic, no one will buy your affiliate ads, no one will click your pay-per-click ads. I envy those blogs on top 10 of PinoyTopBlogs, because I know they are making much more money online.
Now, can someone give me some drive-more-traffic-to-your-blog techniques? I still suck in driving tons of traffic to my blog. I want to be on top 10 on PinoyTopBlogs before this year ends.
