I can’t remember where I found this tip, but my hits yesterday were the highest they have been since I returned to blogging. It’s definitely something that I am going to do from now on. I have been looking for where I found this tip to credit the original author, but for the life of me, I cannot find it. It was either from SuperBloggingTips.com or ProBlogger.net, I will keep you informed when I find the original link. What the article was suggesting you do is blog on an upcoming event happening locally, in your niche, or anywhere. I choose something that was happening locally after reading the article. Hip Hop Soda Shop was opening their first Tampa location on Dec 18th, and I wrote a post about it about a week and a half ago. Since Google indexed the page, I received most of my traffic daily from people searching for any information about the Hip Hop Soda Shop on search engines. December 18th was the grand opening, and that’s why my page views spiked. I realized that most of the people came here just for that and not my blog, but if nothing, my advertising banners got a good amount of page views from them. So, I am not complaining. I even got a link onÂ BuzzFeed as the #9 link on the topic of Hip Hop Soda Shop. What I am going to do different though is try to blog about events related to Japan, Anime, Japanese TV, etc. That way I can not only reap the benefits of page views, but hopefully bring some new readers to xorsyst.com. Try it out for yourself, and remember to use those META tags wisely!
