Alltop: What Can It Do For You?

When I first heard of Alltop I didn't think anything of it. I figured it was just another blog directory. I thought I'd add my blogs to Alltop, just like I have to many others. I thought I would get a few spammers asking me to follow their blogs because they had followed mine. You know, just as normal. I was dead wrong. Alltop is nothing of the sort. BTW- this is not a paid or sponsored article. I don't even get points or any sort of reward if you add your blog. I simply wanted to share this with you because it can help you with your blogging.

I first started noticing Alltop properly when it kept appearing on my Google Analytics figures. Within a couple of weeks of having my blogs approved, Alltop had become the top 10 traffic source of all 4 of the blogs I added there. Now, a little over a month later, and Alltop is one of my biggest traffic source.

Computer Quiz Questions

Computer quiz questions link up: I planned this year to regularly link up to fun and interesting things happening around on the Internet. I know you love books and so do I. Many of you also come by to check out the writing and publishing tips featured here on A Blogger's Books. Have you looked at my updated writing jobs page recently? I've been paid for writing for some of them, so I know you won't regret having a look. You don't have to be a writer. If you're good with verses, cards or tips you can also get a steady income from all the places I've sourced there for you. I've recently finished my How do I write an article series and am very excited about it. You can bookmark and share the entire series at the link.


Coming back to fun things, here's a link to another computer quiz designed by top blogger Mitz, from Tips4PC.com. I know you'll enjoy this one - even though I failed it :-) Let me know how you did. It can't be as bad as me!

3 On-Page SEO Tips for Bloggers


on-page_SEO_tips
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) has been the name of the game in blogging for many years now. With so many people entering the blogosphere hoping to become the next hit blog, it is essential that bloggers utilize SEO tactics in order to be seen online. 
Successful SEO tactics make it so that your blog will rank more visibly in search engines online such as Google and Bing. It is through these search engines that most web users locate their material and is, therefore, one of the most essential areas to master online as a professional blogger. There are two primary types of search engine optimization: off-page optimization and on-page optimization. Off-page SEO tactics are things you do outside of your website to make it more visible online and on-page SEO tactics are the things you do within your website to rank more highly on Google. Follow these three tips for better on-page SEO.

Post Other People's Content on Your Blog: 5 Benefits

You should never copy content from other blogs or websites. However, there are several benefits of posting other people's content on your blog. Sounds strange? This article will show you how to tap into this aspect of writing without stealing other people's work and without offending them. This article will show you how to post other people's content on your blog to help them (and you) reach more readers and enrich both your sites. Using other people's content could not only add life to your blog, it can help you promote them, your own content and your brand. I want to make it clear that this post is definitely not about copying and pasting other people's hard work on your site.

you too can tap into these blogging tricks to help yourself and other bloggers

Post other people's content and create your own signature edit
Although you are not the owner of the content you post from other sites, you do still own that particular “edit” of online content. Most of the time, you combine your own personal content with relevant or interesting things from other locations and then credit that source. Doing this can actually enhance your personal blog posts because you have outside points of view to reference.

Method: collect points of view from other bloggers on a particular subject. Link to them, and add your own remarks and opinions.

How to write an article online: finding ideas for articles
Ideas can sometimes evade us, especially if we’re doing this as a full time job, on a constant basis. The best ideas come from real life. Why? Because this is the only way to find an original perspective on a given topic. Sometimes I have a eureka moment about something I think is fantastically original, only to find that someone has already given the idea a good scouring and airing in the Internet.  At the risk of sounding cynical, there's hardly anything we can come up with these days that’s not already been beaten to death on the web. Your job is to make your version unique.  The best way to do this is to put your individual spin on it.  Only the people who put their individuality into their articles have work that stand head and shoulders above the rest.
