Which Outbound Links Are Visitors Using To Exit Your Site?

Google Analytics doesn’t automatically track and report on which links people use to leave your site. How lame is that? When I worked for a small agency in Dallas, we had this data at our fingertips because we used log-file based analytics instead of GA. There were other upsides to Google Analytics, of course, but this one out-of-the-box feature made our SEO efforts much more potent.

Why Do You Need To Track Exit Links?

At some point, you want your efforts to generate revenue. As a blogger, you’re probably an affiliate for many brands & sites, including Amazon. But how do you know if visitors are interested in those links and products? How do you know whether your efforts are effective?

Turn Your Blogging Vacay Into a Contest!

I hate to break it to you, but you look like you need a break. 🙂

Feeling a little claustrophobic? Chained to your blog? Believe it or not, you CAN get away. We all need a break from the norm. Even bloggers deserve vacations, sabbaticals, and moments of solitude. But it takes too much extra work to have posts ready to cover a vacation!

Five Ways To Monetize Your Blog

You’re going to start a blog and replace your income, right? Of course you are. And I’m going to help you do it.

But first, you gotta have a message and a reason for sharing that message. Without a clear desire, passion, interest, or mission, you’ll share a couple boring journal entries and then abandon your newborn blog just like hundreds of thousands who’ve gone before you.

That’s not you, though, right? You wouldn’t club a baby seal. And you wouldn’t birth a blog just to let it die on the vine.

Since you’re not going to make that same mistake, let’s talk about five ways to monetize a blog so you can start mapping which approach you’re going to tackle first.

Why I’m Building Another Goat Tunnel And The Story You Missed

The story you haven’t heard since the last post about goat tunnels is that despite four wheels Version 1.0 wasn’t very mobile. And not knowing any better, I dragged it 50 yards through five foot tall vegetation.

A month later I couldn’t get out of bed without falling. I had severely strained multiple core muscles and couldn’t even lift my baby boy without searing pain.
