How would you like to wake up on a Monday morning, turn on the news, and hear:
“Monday has been cancelled. Go back to sleep.”?
Hold on; I need a minute to savor the moment.
…OK, back to reality.
Since I had nothing important to say this morning, I thought I’d try to at least make our Monday a bit less miserable.
Take a look at this:
And if you have nothing better to do till next Monday, here are directions on How to Create a Matt Cutts Google Mash up Video from Sam Applegate, the creator of the video above.
On the other hand, his video did collect close to 70K views and counting, so spending the next few days working on your own video mashup might not be such a bad idea after all.
How to Get Traffic to Your Blog
The video above is the perfect example of a traffic snowball.
Here’s how I got to learn about Sam Applegate this morning:
1. Corky Swanson leaves a comment
Last night, Corky Swanson left a comment on Kiesha Easley’s guest post on how to improve your Alexa ranking:
I noticed his CommentLuv link and decided to check it out.
Yep, the power of eye-catching blog post title at work.
2. Corky leads me to his source.
In his post, Corky gave credit to the blog he found the video at – James Hussey’s Average Genius (happens to be one of my favorite blogs to read as well).
And so I got to read James’ great 3 Part Strategy on the Penguin Update Recovery (Part 2) Income Diversification.
3. James leads me to his source.
Then I ended up on YouTube to see who made the original video.
After all, it’s not every day someone comes up with a brilliant idea I wish I thought of.
I take it back: it happens every day.
4. Ana “meets” Sam Applegate.
And here I am, at Sam Applegate’s UK SEO blog.
So far, I like what I see, so I am going to go back to check out some of his posts right after I publish this one.
Of course, I’ll also let him know that I mentioned his on my blog and who knows, he might come back here, like what he sees, mentions me on his blog or to his followers…
Truth is I have no idea how most of my readers find me.
Speaking of CommentLuv, by the way, if you’ve been thinking of getting the Premium version to help you increase traffic to YOUR blog, hold your horses.
CommentLuv Premium anniversary is coming up, which means that you should be able to snatch it up for a song.
