This is report 3 from FourBlogger Labs. Check out the previous two reports here.
Fourblogger Labs Report 1 – Choose a Best Niche for Blogging Success.
Fourblogger Labs Report 2 – Start Writing Content in Your Niche.
This 3rd report shows that how to deliver your precious blogging content in video format. If you haven’t created videos so far, it is the time to start using videos to increase your blog traffic.
Why should you deliver blog contents as videos?
#1 – Videos differentiate you from other Bloggers:
You are always wondering what the real secret of blog traffic is & why my blog doesn’t even get enough improvement. Isn’t it?
You are writing daily contents in your blog. You are trying to develop a network with other bloggers so that they can read and comment on your posts. You are reading big blogs to know how to grow your blog. Then why are you getting low traffic?
The real reason, why your blog doesn’t get improved is, you haven’t added more value to your blog. Everyday hundreds of bloggers start new blogs and thousands of bloggers publish posts daily in your niche. What do you do to differentiate your blog from those blogs? Nothing. So you are still behind of those bloggers who knows what really motivates people to read their blogs.
There are many techniques you can do to differentiate your blog from other blogs. When you use more techniques, you are getting more traffic.
How many of those techniques available? There are many.
The number of techniques depends upon how much you are creative & how you are dealing your blog as business!
Delivering your blog content as videos is one of those techniques.
Before some years, it was enough to give your quality contents as texts only. Even you hadn’t required adding images. Look at ezinearticles.com and other popular, high page rank, articles websites which receives daily millions of views. Those websites still don’t have images. I ask you to go there and try to read 2 articles. You will get bored.
Adding images makes your content readable.
Today it is common, every blogger who blogs about blogging, advices you to add quality images and even they give you a tip about getting quality images from Flickr and giving image credit. In next two or three years, reading blogs with images will get bored. Adding videos will be a necessary. If you start doing videos in that time, it will be a normal thing as because everyone will be doing videos in blogs.
#2 – You want to become a big, professional, ‘A’ list blogger.
A-list bloggers can’t avoid “second largest search engine”. Every professional bloggers has video channel. You know that search engine (Google) is your Number 1 traffic source. Isn’t it? If you have any other source as Number 1, then please share your story with me. I will take the source in my lab to test further.
You submit your blog contents to Google through Google webmasters. Google indexes your site and sends you the best traffic. The same happens in Youtube which is the second largest search engine. You are submitting your videos in youtube and then it sends you best traffic.
You might be asking what the Fourblogger’s traffic success was so far.
