Top 3 Ways to Show Love to Websites & Blogs
There are a lot of amazing blogs and websites on the internet today! In the video below, you’ll learn the top 3 ways to show some love to your favorite websites!
Website Traffic is Gold
Bloggers and websites live and breathe by traffic. And no we aren’t talking about that kind of traffic. We’re talking about website traffic or page views. It’s kind of like a brick and mortar store. The more people that come in and take a look around, the better chance the store has of making some money!
Most of the time, you probably aren’t reading online articles or visiting your favorite blogs to buy something, but there are ways you can show some love to your favorite websites that will help increase traffic or help them earn some money!
3rd Best Way to Show Love – SHARE
You can share an article, video, or post in a variety of ways. Copy and paste the link on your Facebook or Twitter post, click a social share button found on the article, email the article to a friend, or simply tell someone about the website! Any of these methods are a great way to help your favorite website get a little more traffic! It’s true, sharing is caring!
2nd Best Way to Show Love – CLICK ADS
I know…I know… You hate ads. Most of us do find them annoying. However, many blogs and websites that provide valuable free content need to put these ads on their sites to try to earn some extra money. Hopefully there aren’t too many ads on the site, otherwise it gets a little cluttered, but no blogger does this to try and annoy their readers. They are just trying to find a way to earn some money for their work.
If you enjoyed an article or video and you want to say thanks to the writer, look for an interesting ad on the page and click on it! If you’re on a reputable website and the ad isn’t for inappropriate material, you shouldn’t need to worry about anything bad happening.
Clicking an ad will probably earn the website owner a couple cents. Nothing too crazy… but it’s a way of saying, “I enjoyed your article, here’s $0.05 courtesy of Geico!”
1st Best Way to Show Love – BUY
Some of your favorite websites might sell products, e-books, T-Shirts, or other merchandise. This is how blogs and websites survive! Buying their products is the best way to show your love and support for what they are doing.
Some websites may not sell things directly on their page, but they might recommend or promote products through articles, images, or links! These are called affiliate links. For example, if someone writes a blog article about a camera, they might include a link to the product on Amazon. If you click the link on their article to go to Amazon and you buy the camera, the blogger earns a small commission percentage of the sale!
Next time you’re reading an article on your favorite website, think of one of these 3 ways that you can show some love! Share the content, click an ad, or buy something! Even the small things make a big difference.
As a fellow content creator and website owner, thank you for your support and thanks for watching!
