How to get more traffic to your blogs even without updating

I’m not an expert when it comes to blogging, I don’t even pay attention to my blog’s PR anymore and those SEO-thingamajigs but I just want to share something I discovered. As you have noticed, I stopped updating this blog since December 1 and only resumed the other day. I’m so busy this month and I can’t even do bloghopping anymore. From past experiences, whenever I get inactive in blog posting and blog hopping, my site’s statistics significantly drops. I lose significant amount of visitors on my site, hence, less chances of earning from Adsense.

I get traffic from all forms such as Plurk, forum, Entrecard, blogroll and comments from other blogs. When I stopped doing these since first week of December, I’m quite surprised to receive visitors and an INCREASE on my adsense earnings as well. What I’ve done? I became a member of Adgitize and advertised my site with them. I paid $ 14 for a one-month ad to run on other publishers’ websites and automatically gain exposure and traffic to my site.

I’m still earning with Ciao

Ciao is an online consumer community that lets you review of the products you used. It is helpful to all consumers because you can read other opinions by users before buying a product. You can also participate by writing product reviews of your own and let other people know about your experience. Be very detailed and specific with your reviews, if readers find your reviews, useful, they can rate it as “exceptional”, “very helpful”, “helpful”, etc…

Knowing some feedbacks about a particular product is a good thing in Ciao, but earning through your own product reviews and reading other people’s feedbacks is another thing. Last year, I wrote about the easy way to earn money on Ciao, and it has gotten a lot of positive feedbacks especially from people whose main objective is to earn money online. Later on, Ciao changed its incentive scheme which made me lose my interest on them for quite some time. Aside from that, plagiarism is very rampant with other users. They will copy product reviews from other review sites and post it as their own for others to rate. What’s amazing is that they earned a lot from it, after reporting some of them, I got tired and completely forgot about Ciao for more than 3 months.

Out of curiosity, I checked my Ciao account to see what’s going on and I was completely surprised to see that I earned without me doing anything. I withdrew my earnings from them before I left Ciao. Now, I earned $17.13 after my inactivity for three months. They still pay for reviews and ratings made after all. Just make sure that your review is helpful, detailed and honest and you’ll surely get high ratings and high earnings as well.

After joining late last week, I already earned $6.26 for my reviews. They are giving $1.00 incentive for every 120-word full review of products that you make. Good thing I requested a pay-out for my $6.26 earnings because as of November, 6, 2008, they slashed down their incentive per review for a very disappointing $0.25 per review. I was shocked when my new earnings for this week of $4.00 became $2.95. Sigh… maybe it’s the effect of financial crisis in the US, or the surge of registered users, etc…. But this is sad news to those who are earning big in and for those who consider this as an alternative source for earning online. As for me, after one week, I might lose my interest in writing at

Earn money by joining conversations

I joined Dneero after reading some blogs that they did get to earn from this site. It’s very easy, you just have to answer questions and it won’t take time. Post in your blog for your readers to also join the conversation. It’s very similar to what others do in their blogs, Friendster and Multiply wherein they get tagged and they answer those memes. But this time, you get paid every time you answer.
