Best way to drive good traffic to your website
May 12, 2017
Normally getting traffic to your website can be done through a host of ways including SEO and content marketing can give bring you the traffic you desire. However, there’s a catch, it takes so long a time that if you’re looking to publicize something real fast, this wait will exhaust you.
So if you’ve decided that those methods are too slow, then here are some really good ways to drive that traffic to your desired status.
Make Guest Posts – wherever you are, you already know some people who have their own traffic. These are usually authorities and you can bet that if you get featured there, your traffic will be on the rise. However, if the brand you plan to get featured on is very big, it makes it harder for yours to be seen. For this reason, you might want you might want to start with a smaller host.
Secondly, while making a guest post, you can also ensure that your content has good value and authority. You will be surprised as to how much direct traffic you’ll get from such post and it will also help in content marketing and search engine optimization as well.
The Social Media Audience The social media audience is one of the most unpredictable audiences you can think of. You never know if they will actually respond or not, but then you have to try. You’ll have to build the audience on your social platform to a point where you have very vivid and active followers that will not just cause traffic on your blog, but also increase the traffic by spreading the information and the content they get from your blog. Do not doubt it, social media can make you famous. There are just a couple of things you should do and they include having conversations with your followers, liking and being active on their posts, and also telling them about your brand. In no time with such a relationship, you’ll garner as much traffic as you need.
Get Influencers Remember how we talked about guest posts at the beginning? It’s almost the same thing; the only difference is that, instead of writing about them on another site, you take a different approach. Here, you’ll have to start up a discussion with the high profile personality, talk about what they do, tell them what you do and ask if they’ll like you to write about it. They might oblige but if they don’t, don’t give up it’s a process, and eventually, after the person must have seen your other works, he will have a change of mind.
Use of Paid Ads Most people think that paid ads are not so good because when the budget is off, the ad goes off. Regardless of that, I still consider it a way of making your traffic grows. What you do here is pay upfront for your advert and get it running at the appointed days. It turns out very useful at the end of the day. Some paid ads you can use are Reddit ads, Google AdWords, LinkedIn ads, bing ads, twitter and Facebook ads.
Run Promotional Contests Contests are also Luke running paid ads but the difference is that you’re creating opportunities for people to win stuff and your traffic is growing at the same time. Good traffic can never come rushed but, it does not really mean that it should be slow either. When you run contests online, your followers will share the information to get their friends to partake in the opportunity. This will in turn help to build traffic on your blog as well.
In Conclusion, driving fast traffic can be something really good but some folks go the wrong way about it. Doing things the right way may not seem fast enough but most times it pays off. These methods, however, will speed up your traffic drive and of course, in a good way.
How PPC Made Me Enjoy My Adventurous Lifestyle
May 12, 2017
PPC simply means pay per click. It is an advertising model used by publishers and bloggers to make funds even without having to be on top of the issue. It is a model that involves the splitting of the advertisement fee per click on the ad. Meaning that as much clicks from visitors as the ad gets, that’s how much you’ll get paid.
Let’s look at some of the benefits that you could get from being a blogger who’s into the PPC advertisements.
Firstly, as earlier stated, it is a model where your payment comes by just a click. So this will not be a problem at all and as a matter of fact, you can get your payment wherever you are in the world. If you love to explore and travel like I do, I guarantee that you will enjoy this a lot.
Secondly, apart from the money that you get from these advertisements, it also serves as a way of getting massive traffic to your blog. The more ads people see on your blog or redirected to your blog, the more visitors you get. These things sometimes work as secret investments into other areas of your career.
Also, content marketing has been one way to get traffic to your blog, but when you go really far in PPC advertisements things become different. Your followers will market your content unknowingly by sharing some of the opportunities they find on your ads. Most people do not believe this actually works but it sure does over time.
I’m a traveler and a person who likes adventures and frankly, I never saw myself staying in one place for far too long. For this to be possible as I work, it means I need to work as much as possible from wherever I can. That’s the thing, it cannot be a vacation if I travel all the way to work as well, but I really don’t have to. Yes, all I have to do is get the jobs, set them up and have my bandwagon of followers click the ads and there’s money in my account. Yes, the system works for me and not the other way around. This is not to say that it is a very easy job and doesn’t come with challenges but, it sure has its own benefits.
Another thing that I’ve benefited from the success of this model is the fact that, I’ve gotten really high recommendations. Initially at the start, getting jobs like this was not really very easy but eventually, it got better and now I don’t need to hustle for this jobs anymore. Now my clients have to bid for them or just accept the flat rate I offer.
In conclusion, being successful in the pay per click advertisements business as a blogger seems to some people as impossible. As a matter of fact, they consider it something that doesn’t really accrue as many benefits as the main blog post. With my dedication to this job, I’ve been able to conjure the success I have today and enjoy living my life on the side as well.
Pay Per Click -How It Works For Blogs
May 12, 2017
Pay per click is an internet advertising model that is basically useful in directing traffic to a website or blog by a simple arrangement which involves the advertiser paying the blogger or publisher whenever the ad is clicked.
This model of advertising is mostly associated with search engines such as google AdWords, Microsoft bing Ads etc.
The main purpose of this advertisement method is to identify vividly the benefits and profitability of online and digital marketing. It also helps to know how effective the ad was and how much attention was paid to it.
How Does Pay Per Click Work? The construction of pay per click is actually very easy to understand. It is calculated by the division of the advertising cost by the number of adverts clicked. This simply means that the blogger gets his pay from the number of ads clicked by visitors.
There are two types of models used to determine pay per click advertising method and they are; flat-rate and bid rate. For both of these cases, the advertiser has to consider how much value he gets per click from a visitor. To determine that, he must also know the type of visitors he hopes to attract with that ad. Yes, just like every other form of advertising, targeting is the prerequisite to the goal you’re trying to achieve.
Flat Rate PPC In the flat rate PPC, the advertiser and the publisher deliberate on how much the advert will cost and then divide it per clicks. In most cases, the publisher already has a card with all the rates in it for different networks. The flat rate prices are usually minimal as the sites used for the advert placements are usually filled with paid ads as well.
Bid-Based Rate This is a method that requires the advertisers to sign a contract that allows them and other advertisers bid for an ad space with the publishers. The advertisers tell the publishers how much they’re willing to pay for an advertisement post based on keyword. The auction is usually in an automated fashion which makes it easier. So when the advertisement spot comes up on the search engine result page, the automation takes place. With this method, the bids for a keyword that has its targets on a visitor’s location, time, day, and time or period of search will be compared and a winner selected.
In conclusion, Pay per click advertising is one very superb shortcut to digital marketing. Many bloggers who have an idea about it, use it as a source of gathering traffic to their sites and sites they advertise for. It is one way to know how profitable and effective digital marketing is, and slowly but surely it is becoming really effective. There are two methods for this internet marketing model and they are; the flat rate and bid based rate. As a blogger, you can employ one method or both, just be properly informed about it.

Backpacking is no doubt a wonderful experience, and many have aspired to have such a trip to relax and just see the world.

First of all, you have to start small. Do not go all out just yet. You can think of this as the trial period. Schedule a weekend, perhaps, and make it to be a nearby area. This will be the time you will decide if you like what you are doing and if you are willing to continue it.
It is, of course, of extreme importance to dwell a lot on the gear you are to bring. You have to invest on a bag that is very sturdy to carry all your things. Test if you can be able to handle its overall weight as well. Beforehand, you have to think of possible problem scenarios. For example, what if it rains? What if you do not get to have phone signal?

Travellers Must-Have Items
April 21, 2015
Adventure is the dream of every traveller. And in that every dream adventure of that aspiring traveller, there is always that mystery and maybe danger coming in the way. Since being a traveller is not all that safe as it may seem, being able to prepare essential stuffs and items for the journey is really a must.
Today, many aspiring travellers just doesn’t have that enough experience to be able to survive the wilderness experience or in even outdoors. Because of this, every aspiring travellers must be able to have at least an idea about what should they be bringing on to their journey. These travellers must have items can guide them. These are mostly essential for an adventurer’s good start in their journey. With these essential must have items, traveller’s can enjoy their journey without having difficulty adjusting to certain environment. They can still experience the comfort that they can feel at home even when they are on a journey, may it be in the wilderness or outdoors.
A successful expedition or adventure has first of all to do with your attitude, mental capacity and focus. Living in the wilderness or outdoor is after all hard.
One of the most important things that a traveller should bring is the sleeping bag. It is important for a traveller to be able to sleep well during the night. After all the hiking, running, walking and other activities, you will really need a good night’s rest, don’t you think? Having enough night’s rest can fuel your energy for the next day’s another journey and adventure.
Well, a mattress is comfort for your sleeping, do have one. Choose a foam ridge rest or an inflatable mattress – or both for full protection. A puncture on the inflatable one is not unusual.
A tent is also important. It will be like your won house wherever you will be staying for the night. You could always just sleep outside, but using a tent can offer you more private space for yourself. And also, there may be dangers in the place you are staying; being inside the tent may help at least, for your protection.
Stove (pots, pans, eating utensils)
Foods are important and you should be able to cook them. Warm and tasty foods are after all essential to get piece of mind and energy for the day’s journey. If venturing into the developing world, petrol is the only choice as fuel or firewood. But then you have to know how to make a fire.
Good thermal clothes are the best choice for any climate. Trousers and shirt plus rain-and-wind gear can help give space for your knees and elbow thus making you be able to move freely.
It is highly suggested that you should wear sneakers. It gives ease in every activities you do as well as comfort.
Head cover, Head lamp and Batteries
A head cover, preferably a big-brimmed one, makes a big difference in any climate really. It shields you from sun, rain and overheating – or getting too cold. A head lamp is extremely important to be able to set up camp, cook and survive when it’s dark and make sure that you have enough batteries to replace the non-working ones.
There is already GPS, but don’t use it too much often. You may need a lot of batteries to be able to use it. Only use the GPS for security, not for navigation. Instead, use the manual compass for you to be able to be extremely aware where you are and what you’re surrounding looks like.
First Aid Kit
This may be the most important item. You will need some basic medicine to keep you going until you can get proper help.
Knife, Lighters, Matches and Duct tape
Knife is very important. You will need it from making a good fire to cutting your foods. It may also come in handy for other things. Lighters and matches will help you build fire and don’t underestimate the use of duct tape. It can pretty much fix anything.
Waterbottle or a CamelBak
Water is very essential to your travel. It will keep you hydrated.
Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Shampoo, Soap, and Towel
Hygiene is also important even you are travelling. Opt to have your toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, soap and towels ready. You may not be able to take your bathe everyday during your travel, but at least you have them ready when you will be able to do so.
Maps, Passport, Money and other essential documents like Cellphone and Camera or even Solar Panel.

You could say the word is as stellar as when you say the word “organic” so that healthy diners would want to eat your dishes. It’s a buzzword. It’s a traveller’s nightmare turning into dreams.
Many say it’s the solution to creative blocks. Others say it helped them find their purpose in becoming entrepreneurs.
I say that we should just travel for the sake of travelling.
Travelling is expensive. For some people, that expense could just be the plane ticket. Some people consider the lack of time travelling as part of the troublesome expense when it comes to travelling.
But backpacking should solve expenses, right?
Wrong. When you go backpacking, you put yourself in harms way. Of course, you don’t do that headfirst. What I meant to say is that things will and will continue to happen.
I haven’t heard of a traveller who had a happy start with backpacking. Even my first backpacking experience didn’t go so well.
Picture this. I only had £1000 in my pocket and I had no reservations, but I was lost in Bali, Indonesia. I didn’t speak a word of the local dialect and could only cue to people what I want to do.
Right there and there, I realised that I was getting lost. At first I was afraid. I was thinking, “how am I going to go home?”,”I might get robbed”, “what am I supposed to do?”
A fellow named Robert Burns was an American who spoke the dialect very well. He helped me out when I was paying for the bus. Then he helped me get a hotel room for myself. I wanted to pay him for his help, but he said:
“It’s your first backpacking trip, I know. It’s rough but it’s fun, right?”
Until now, we’re still talking and backpacking together along with other friends we’ve come on the road.
This is what real backpacking is. At least for me.
It’s about meeting new people, making new relationships. Seeing the world through different lenses. Working with small budgets. Sleeping in trains or taking 8-hour flights.
Whichever works for you, as long as you pick up the right values and experience the good things you’re looking for, you’re having the right sense of what is backpacking.
Me And My Big Backpack
October 10, 2014
I’m Johnny G.
I love travelling. As you’ve noticed, I also love hiding my real surname. This is because I believe when you provide information your true identity doesn’t really matter. Or maybe I picked that line up from some action movie.
Regardless, welcome to the first post in my blog, which is the welcome page. Welcome!
Now, I hope Google doesn’t consider that as a spam.
Anyhow, with my energetic personality, I’d like to talk to you about the thing I love the most: travelling.
But I’m not talking about the do-it-with-your-travel-agent and know what to expect kind of travel. This is about a firsthand experience in travelling.
I’m pretty sure you’ve read some of these things at Elite Daily, but what I mean to say is, backpacking.
Backpacking gets you to places you’ve never been before along with situations that you haven’t handled before. This is a great way to know yourself better.
This is why I am addicted to travelling. It’s because I get to know more and more about myself and the world around me.
So, if you’re decided and you’d like to go on a personal adventure, maybe you’d like to read mine first. And my story begins here, in this very blog.
I hope you pick up something useful from here! Just contact me if you need anything or you’d like me to join your adventure for the ultimate stranger-buddy experience!
