  1. What an extremely cruel article. Where is the hot blonde babe?

    Loved the way you hooked me and reeled me in, and I agree with everything you’ve said having experimented with them all. Well done.

  2. @Carl,

    Thanks! Coming from an actual SEO guy like yourself I take that as a real compliment. I am constantly surrounded by hot blonde babes such as the one in the article; unfortunately, again like the one in the article, they are mostly fictional.

    Nothing good lately? But… but… zombie chickens? What of the zombie chickens? Do they not get the credit they deserve? (shakes head).

    PS- I think you should try the Hot Blonde Babe technique on BlogCatalog. It will confuse everyone and much humor will ensue.

  4. @Jenn,

    Zombie Chickens! Oh, yes, we will always have the zombie chickens.

    The Blonde Babe Technique: I’m not really at the point where I need to resort to such trickery. Not yet anyway. 🙂

    William:

    Great post. Your technique of hooking the reader with a good story is
    classic and time-tested.

    By the way, your line “she was sleek and sexy and when she walked into the casino all the slot-machines began paying off” provoked hysterical laughter!

    The name of my blog, by the way, is Traffic Nymphomaniac

    So, “if you can’t get enough and are never satisfied”, pay me a visit!

    I find word of mouth is a great way to get traffic. If I can get enough people to reiterate the following statement about my site; “It’s funny. And amusing. Kind of like spying on your neighbor and catching them in the act of murdering a clown. THAT is the kind of funny and amusing I’m talking about at Krapsody.” ….Then I’ve won the game. 😉

    Yeah…neighbors…I think all those clown shoes in your garbage can is starting to make sense to me now. 🙂

    The “hot blond” comment is so true. I switched my avatar about 7 weeks ago and my traffic increased about 5 times from what I was getting before the hot blond entered my world!

    I am not too shabby myself but I am brunette – so the saga goes – Ginger or Maryanne??? Even though neither were blond – maybe Mrs. Howell was the one everyone longed for 🙂

    I’m such a freakin’ sucker! I was hooked on that story like it was phonics. I also got caught up in that photo. It put me on a mental tangent wherein I started recalling how lipstick was first used by prostitutes to attract johns. The enhancing of lip color is a trick on the male psyche that suggests a flush and healthy *something else*. Of course, the *something else* was never likely to be that healthy. Today lipstick is taken for granted, but I can attest that the psychological implications still hold. Just thought I’d share that.

    Re: Advice. It may seem obvious, but your list is missing: “Write something worth reading.” That’s the one I’m shooting for. To dream.

    Sex appeal sells almost anything to include blogs. Got here and your post post has some helpful hints. 🙂

  22. @Jane: Remember, the more hot blondes you reward me with, the more traffic you will recieve. 🙂

    @Harriette: Thanks! Glad I could be of service!

    @thebigandyt: Hopefuly, your current avatar isn’t of a urine-soaked adult diaper.

    @Shelley: Proof positive that it really works! Thanks for the confirmation!

    @Sebastian: You’re welcome 🙂

    @John Sulivan: Thanks! See you there!

    @.45: Thanks for the info, and, yes, the MOST important thing is to write something worth reading. That is #1 🙂

    @Bob: Thank you! 🙂

  23. You know – You had me all psyched to see the rest of the person that went with those lips. Then I read the article and found a bunch of things that were real important to my blogging future. Thanks for the good ole bait and sitch – it worked well!

  24. @Benny,

    Thanks! I guess I was being a little cruel using those luscious lips, but at least I don’t use a hottie for my avatar…yet. 🙂

    I will have to check out the humor blogs directory, I hadn’t heard of that one before! You are so very right about sex selling – on my itmightbelove.com blog most of my search engine traffic comes from people looking for sex! Sadly I don’t think I have what they are looking for!

  26. @Chelle,

    The Humor Blogs Directory is a must if you write a humor blog. I have a link at the top of my sidebar under where it says, “Want Funny?” Click on that and it will not only take you to the directory, but it also gives me a mild electric shock…and, I LOVE it! 🙂

    Haha…this was an awesome post. It’s true, too. People are always surprising me by giving me a Stumble or a review… It feels like freakin Christmas when I find out about it. Anywho, I’m off to Stumble someone… and maybe grab a snack. In what order? I don’t know.

  28. @Jillian,

    StumbleUpon is great! I still get traffic from stumbles months after they were first submitted. I know you’ve stumbled my stuff before–I really appreciate it! Thanks!

  29. Great advice! I like cruel blondes, and I also like blog traffic.

    My blog is about heavy metal albums and horror films. These are not to everyone’s taste, so I fill out my posts with hot blondes and other sexy ladies.

    I never thought of using a hot chick as an avatar. It’s gotten me a few times too, I must admit. I will have to try the ten word post title idea. I always thought that was a bit too long, but never really gave it a shot. Thanks for the great info 🙂

    Reply to this comment

  38. @mikey777,

    It doesn’t HAVE to be exactly 10 words, but Google starts to ignore anything longer. As long as you have all the targeted keywords in your title, it’s long enough. It’s always good to make the title interesting though because sometimes that’s all that someone sees before deciding to visit your blog or not.

    “even if you are an old, fat, bald guy named Frank who often surfs the net while wearing nothing but a urine-soaked adult diaper, you will still get tons of pulsating young gentlemen clicking thru”

    Gave me a good laugh, but it’s true. ty for the cruel advice.

  45. I know what you say is true. I haven’t been blogging long, but I am trying to find my voice and am having a hard time making headlines and descriptions catchy. But I know practice helps.
