Internet Marketing: How to Use the News to Drive Traffic to Your Website or Blog

In my regular Wednesday post over at, I talked about how to use current events -- eg, what's happening in the news -- to drive traffic to your website or blog.

This is not only a fun way to drive more traffic, but it keeps your posts fresh and timely because it forces you to think about the totality of your demographic's lives. Doing this creates true bonds with your readers, which leads to trust, which leads to sales.

Tomorrow, I'll post an article that illustrates this in detail. In the meantime, enjoy this post.

Interviews with three successful affiliate marketers reveal how. One is only 25 years old and is working on his first five-figure month after only 9 months!
