Why Am I After The Blog Post?

Some people are asking me, why a blog post ranking contest?

Well, because if you really want to increase your visitors everyday on your blog via search engine, you must learn how to optimize your blog post’s permalink pages, not the homepage itself. As we all know, we blog different topics everyday. Your homepage changes from time to time, and if your blog is a personal blog where you talk about different topics everyday, you’ll only rank high on the search engines while your blog post is on your main page, and visitors will drop after your blog post gets buried on the archives.

I experienced this before on my old blog. Everytime I post a lyrics of a popular song, I could see traffic increasing. But after the post disappeared on my home page, the traffic is gone.

If you know how to optimize a blog post, your traffic will remain even if your blog post got buried on the archives. Look at my pinay $candal post. It’s been more than a month, yet, it still drives traffic to my blog everytime someone’s searches for pinay $candal.

Try to optimize at least one blog post in your blog even once a month. And you’ll see your traffic increase every month. Make it twice a month to double your chances, or every week to speed-up your blog growth. It all depends on you. Each blog post gets new traffic. They simply add up every time a new blog post hits the first page of the search engines for a popular keyword.

That’s the reason why this blog started from nothing to more than a thousand visitors everyday. I focus more on optimizing the permalink pages, not my home page. I don’t even target a competitive keyword on this blog’s main page. Unless Marhgil Macuha became a competitive keyword someday. 🙂

Blogging about a popular keyword and optimizing your permalink page is much easier than creating a new niche blog for it, isn’t it? You’ll get the same result anyway, traffic and more earnings.
