The best way to think about it is if you were to mash together Twitter and Blogger, youʼd have Tumblr. I donʼt suggest Tumblr for a main site at all but as a traffic generation tool, itʼs one of the best (and least used) out there! YouTube In my view, YouTube is probably the best free ʻbrandingʼ source out there. Notice I said branding and not traffic.

Guest Blogging: Is it for Your Blog?

Guest blogging. Do you ever really hear anything negative about it? I haven't come across anything that shows me or informs me that guest blogging may be a bad thing for a website. With that said, does that mean that all sites need guest blogging? I don't think so at all. I think it can be helpful, but it truly depends on your site. Here are some positives about guest blogging: increase in traffic to the site new readers due to new topics or even writing style higher number of inbound and outbound links fresh and updated, unique content more often These are all very important pieces to what guest blogging offers a website owner.
