Getting Your Stats

As an affiliate marketer I should look at numbers.  By this I mean, stats showing; the amount of visitors, where the visitors are from, if they are repeat visitors, and numbers of visitors daily, etc., etc.  One way I do this is through a free, reliable, invisible web tracker called StatCounter.  Just type it in your browser and sign up if you are interested.

Of course "driving traffic" to my blog is what I am really focusing on.  This alone entails some study and application of different methods that are readily found all over the internet.  Publishing posts by "pinging" (another free service) that delivers to various other websites is one way of  getting indexed in the search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo, Cuil, etc.).  Publishing in various social networks like Facebook, Myspace, Del.icio.us, or Zimbio are more helpful ways of driving traffic to a blog.

Getting listed in Technorati (having a claim code like 5PUHA6SCGAMU) is another highly suggested pathway to more traffic.  Recently I read about BlogCatalog and checked it out too.  It definitely looks do-able for listing one's blog, plus the community seems quite readable.

Writing for online ezines is also a great traffic driver.  Ezine Articles, GoArticles, ArticlesBase, and SCRIBD are but a few of the many offers to choose from or add to. All these suggestions do include stats: the more one writes the more one is published the more traffic is driven to one's site!

One common way is Driving Traffic to your Website using eBay 2 Audio CD 2009 Edition.  I haven't used e-bay, much to my own chagrin, yet I know many who have, quite successfully!

Best of luck to you, and if you would like to add to this short list of ways to drive traffic via more freebies than not, please comment.
