Why I Stopped Commenting On Your Blog
I’m known around these here parts as a commenting fiend. And yet -in the last few weeks or so- I’ve pretty much dropped off the face off the earth. Why?
Everyone knows –or at least, everyone ought to know- that commenting is a great way of building relationships with other bloggers AND driving traffic to your site.
None the less, my traffic pretty much continued to resemble the wavy pattern seen above.
I was convinced that Triberr had the power to double your traffic. Alas, that’s not what happened. Triberr TRIPLED my traffic.
On 3/15/2011 I published a post The Age Of Social Media Superstars Is OVER!!! The spike in traffic you see above is the result of Triberr spreading that post across all the members of my tribe.
Now, I’ll grant you. That headline is very much on code. It’s very attractive to people in the social media space and that –no doubt- had a lot to do with people clicking to check out the post.
As you can see below, the average time on that page is over 8 minutes. That is HUGE!!!
Also, the bounce rate is quite high. This tells me that most of the visitors got there for the first time, read the post and bounced. It takes repeat visits to make a dent in someone’s mind and make them stick.
The Day After
The day after, I published a very off code post. At least it’s headline was off code.
3 Master Tribe Strategies to Reach Multiplication. I mean, what the hell does that even mean?
So the traffic dropped off, however, it was still way better than normal.
The Day After the Day After
The next day, 3/17/2011 I published a guest post by Stacey Herbert.
Also, the traffic confirmed the headline’s emotional viralbility.
Triberr Extends Your Reach Inward As Well
We changed Triberr’s tagline from Double Your Traffic to The Reach Multiplier. I think it better reflects its core functionality.
Sure, on one hand it extends your reach by tapping into the networks of other tribe members, but on the other, it does way more than that.
Connections are made amongst triberrs as well. Kazia Mullin -through serendipitous circumstances- ended up in the Mighty Jaffa Tribe with Gini Dietrich. Which resulted in a guest post offer on Gini’s highly regarded marketing blog.
- So, I hope everyone had missed my insightful comments. I promise I will be back to comment on your blog really soon.
