How to rank well in Google using WordPress Blogs and get TONS of Traffic

August 26, 2009

The secret many internet marketers know is that Google LOVES bloggers who blog in the right way. One of the biggest reasons for my online success has been the use of this WordPress blog. The great thing about WordPress is that it is FREE to use if you already have a hosting account with the right features. There are a number of reasons why WordPress gives better Search Engine Rankings. However, instead of going into all of that, I would prefer for you to hear it directly from Google.

Matt Camp is the head of the Web Spam team at Google, and in this video he shares WHY blogs like mine do so well in google and why so many people (like myself) use wordpress to get tons of traffic to their business. It's 46 minutes long, so make sure to watch it when you have a decent blog of time to sit back, relax and absorb it all, but trust me, it's 100% worth it because it's VERY informative. If you are interested in Making Money Online, these are things that you MUST know.

In Summary:

  • WordPress ROCKS!! Use it if you want to boost your Search Engine Rankings
  • Write relevant content.
  • Write on a regular basis

Many people try to do all kinds of crazy tactics to boost Search Engine Rankings, but the BEST, and longest lasting way of ranking well is to provide high quality content on a regular basis that is relevant to the topic of your blog. WordPress has MOST of the technology taken care of, the rest is up to you.

If you are interested in starting a blog, you should choose a host that has Fantastico installed on their accounts. You don't need to know all the details about it, except that Fantastico allows you to install a wordpress blog (and a bunch of other stuff) at the click of a button. It's really that simple. The hosting company that I use and HIGHLY recommend is Hostgator.

Now, I'm sure you have some comments or even questions. I would LOVE to hear them, so go ahead and leave them below.

    Leslie,
    What happen with lunerpages? You don’t recommend for wordpress? What is status of your free mentor sites with lunerpages?

    NA

    • Lunarpages is also fine for wordpress because they also have Fantastico and that can install wordpress easily. I used Lunarpages for the mentoring site because I was able to work out a deal with them. They are fine.

      In terms of the mentoring site status, I have put it on hold because of everything else that I’m doing. I will bring them back in the future and they will be revised in a way that you can easily integrate it with a blog.

    Leslie,

    This is great and all but I hate blogging. One of the reason why is I don’t know what to blog about. I have no wonderful info to share or anything. How am I suppose to blog then? And especially on a daily basis. SO that’s one of the reasons I hate blogging. Can you help me?

    • Hi De, it doesn’t necessarily have to be every day. I’ve never blogged every day, but it has still worked for me. However, if you hate blogging and have nothing to share, that would make it extremely difficult. One option is to get someone to write for you. You can get decent articles for a few dollars. The bad part is that the cost would add up significantly if you are having someone else do everything. Blogging isn’t the ONLY way of driving traffic, but it is one of the best that I’ve found. All the best in your pursuits.
