    Hi George,

    The premise of this post is a good one, however you don’t really back up your statements with any specific examples or arguments.

    “Monitor the results – It is important for you to monitor the results from time to time. Not all of the strategies may work in your favor.”

    How and which results? It would help you to say something like: Use Google Analytics to check your monthly page hits, percentage of new visitors and how they gotto your site in the first place – if you’re seeing an increase in visitors to your site, then your marketing effort are clearly paying off. Thus, you’ll see a great ROI for your strategy.

    Point 3 kinda’ stumped me too.

    “Using really good content”

    This presents you with a great opportunity to show people an example of what good content actually looks like!

    Instead you just generalize about it – why not present an infographic (an increasingly popular medium in the world of SEO) that shows the readers how people get from their search engines, to your site.

    You also say to keep tabs on the content your site offers its readers; if you already have a specific niche (for arguments sake let’s say a blog on SEO) you’ll already be aware of what your readers want to see.

    As such, why don’t you show them new and exciting ways to market their websites; videos, infographics and interactive tools are becoming ever popular methods to generate traffic and backlinks.

    What people will want to know is; what specific methods are going to yield the best results for their blogs and how do they go about achieving this?
