Websites Past, Today and Future
At first websites were made to create a presence for a business or organization online. These first sites would be considered boring by today's standards. They did not have any multimedia or interaction from the user. Some were just a way for a business or organization to display information for users to see. With the new millennium, came a new type of website – the blog. While blogs are basically just journal entries created by a user, they are also websites. Tools such as Blogger and WordPress offered users the ability to create a blog, or website, without having to have the knowledge of writing the code.
Websites could now be created by anyone, no matter what level of computer expertise a user had. With the introduction of video, pictures, and sound; this dullness quickly faded. Sites could now grab a user's attention by having video and sound automatically play when a user opened a website. Multimedia was using mainly Adobe Flash to display content. While this content could more easily grab the attention of a user, the Flash content was not getting indexed the same way with search engines. This made it more difficult for users to find the content using a search engine. With all the information available on the internet, users wanted to be able to access needed information without having to go through automatically playing video or sound. Websites became interactive so that users could quickly access the information they needed. Once users were able to access information at the touch of a finger with their computers, along came the mobile platforms. With mobile platforms such as Android, iOS, and Windows; users were now able to access email, social media, and browse websites.
Many websites were not mobile compatible so developers had to develop mobile friendly websites or lose out on potential customers. Today we are in the age of social media with platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, and Pinterest. Many users use these tools not only to communicate with family and friends, but also to keep up to date with their favorite business or organization.
Businesses can now use these tools to keep customers up to date on the latest trends, items, and special sales. These platforms are offered free to the public and even for businesses and organizations. That means that businesses need not pay for marketing on them. Now they would have to pay someone to create the content that would be displayed on these platforms, but actually putting the content on them is free. Businesses and organizations can get an enormous return on their investment by using these platforms. Creating a website and displaying content just once will not work for any business or organization. Fresh content needs to be added frequently so that users will have something new to grab their attention. The more content that is indexed for a business or organization, the more likely it is to be found using a search engine. Most users will not scroll past 3-5 pages when searching for information. If a business or organization does not show up in those first 3-5 pages,they may not be found by users at all.

Core Traffic Strategies - Day 1
Welcome to the first day of core traffic strategies which if followed without fail will bring traffic to your website or blog. The first thing you are going to do is relax and grab a coffee or get some snack as I was very hard on everyone yesterday and those who know me were quite taken aback as some of my friends wrote me hey saurabh what happened to you? Did you lose your pajamas? Ok I did not lose my pajamas and will return to my normal self. Yesterday’s article was just a jolt to those who think that you can create a magic button which will make you rich overnight. There is no magic button but you can create your own magic buttons which will be bringing you traffic from all directions. Ok some people have surely woken up and before I start the practical stuff. I want to tell you do not be serious ever in life from outside. Try to laugh at things. I am telling you this from my personal experience. You will ask me d how does it effects attracting traffic. Let me answer you it will effect you a lot because you become so magnetic when you began to laugh and enjoy life. People began to like you and people is traffic.
So here is the first very important part of the core strategy.
Now if you or either of you who have fallen from your chair. Sorry but I had to do it. As this is the most important thing to attract traffic. I know you are shaking you head you are saying it must be crazy to blog daily and you cannot blog daily. Some of you might not have a blog at all. And somebody will say what is the advantage of blogging on Sunday. Who will read your blogs.
Let me answer to all those questions above. Firstly if you do not have a blog make one today. For all those who think they have nothing to say today then write a blog about what is there that is making you say nothing about today. Those who are finding it hard to blog on Sundays can write why it is hard to blog on Sundays. I do not care where you are and whatever you are doing the first core strategy is going to be that you are going to blog daily from now on.
Why to blog daily?
You know google love content. It has finally discovered a year before that it is just a search engine and its main job is to provide information. The more information and original information (we will talk about that later) you are adding to your website and the best way to do is through a blog the more google’s crawler will visit your website and you can see it visiting your website if you are using livezilla or have installed visitors tracking.
So what does it have to do with google’s visit?
Everything my friend. If you can make google come to visit your website everyday you create reputation. And good reputation is the key to bring good traffic.
Make blogging a habit like brushing your teeth or taking bath I know some of the computer guys are not regular even in doing that but you know what I mean.
How much should I write?
Your articles should be around (500-700) words). Do not look at me as some animal out of zoo. I know what I am saying and you committed in following me for at least 30 days.
What should I write about?
About your website’s main topic. Think about your keywords it does not matter what they are and revolve your article around it. Think of the why’s and how’s.
Hey what I do when No ideas is coming?
I know there will be times when no idea will come to your head it is when you have written so many articles that your mind says I have written it all. Let me give you an idea but do not use it too often and that is use the content you find interesting like a video and give your comments on it. Google will love you if is a youtube video. This will be called as you are referring an outer source but writing your comments in your own words makes it your article. But do not do this more as it is you whose reputation has to be established.
What if still my mind is blank?
Go and read something the internet is a very large place and you will find lot of content on the web on almost any topic that you are searching for. You can also watch videos and listen to audio. So search for proper ideas and try to look at it from your point of view. It does not mean that you can just simply copy paste it. Google recognizes duplicate content so instead of rewarding you it will punish you by bringing down your website’s ranking and ultimately kicking you out of its index. So never do that.
Do not forget about authorship?
Whenever you are writing a blog please make sure that you have established your authorship with googleplus. As you began to write more and more articles your authorship will be established and people will began to look at you as an authority in your field.
Ok I have written an article of more than 600 words is my job finished now?
Congratulation I knew you could do that. You have to do this everyday. As per as your job being done there is one thing more that you have to do submit your blog to the blog search engines and websites I have already mentioned in one of my previous blog
.Where are the tools? You said something about the tools?
I know many people will like to have a tool help them write a blog everyday. And I am going to talk about tools only after you have finished your training for the first ten days. When you have done what all that I have told.
I want you to go thought the process first. When I wanted to learn HTML do you know what I did. I did not do it in Dreamweaver so that It can create much of the code for me but I started typing in notepad. Not only did it make me learn HTML but it made me very good at it. I will tell you about tools so that you can speed many of the tasks and it will also make you very fast but at the end of the 10 days or if you minus today 9 days session.
So all my friends out there I want you to be successful. Google ranks all those websites well who have high reputation. You cannot control google’s ranking but you can build your reputation through your blogs. So the first core strategy for traffic is Blog daily. Write it somewhere so you do not forget it. Let us see tomorrow which core traffic strategies is going it to be for the 2nd day. You have already started working and I am so glad.
