In Internet marketing, organic traffic is web traffic that comes from listings that aren’t paid for. These listings can include guides, search engines like Google or Bing and directories.

10 Guest Blogging Rules You Must Obey

Guest blogging is all the rage these days. Two years ago when I started guest blogging, very few people were doing it and a guest post on an A-list blog is guaranteed to result in around 200 – 1000 visitors; sometimes more.

Blog Commenting

Depending on your approach and intent, one of the best ways to build many high quality, relevant backlinks to your website or blog is by blog commenting.

When blog commenting, it’s important to focus on the pagerank of the particular blog post you’re commenting on, as a post with a high pagerank will definitely give your link more link juice and authority. A word of warning though, this method has been abused by many in the blog spamming habit. It’s important to research your target site, and post regular comments to build up a relationship with the site owner, instead of just relying on your links to have any value by themselves.
