For almost four years of blogging, this site amazed me of increasing traffic that started from scratch. Caraga started as a blogspot, a free publishing tool owned by Google. A year later, I purchase domain name from Godaddy. The site still hosted free by Google using the simple and in-demand Blogger platform.
The site focused on beautiful Caraga destinations or Caraga tourist spots. I am calling the site as Caraga Rising Paradise because people keep asking about the place. The name somewhat unknown to them. But when they scan the pages of the site, some are saying they want to jump right away.

A place is climbing towards the famed spot, still climbing. A beautiful place started to rise because of tourism. But there is just one concern that I want to shout against it, and that is mining. Topping the news that Caraga is now mining capital in Asia because of its rich in mineral resources, I’m afraid that my dream will break into pieces as mining will lash back tourism. At the end, Caraga rising paradise will turn into nightmare.
I hope not.
Anyway, I have to leave everything of what will happen in the next decade. But now, I am enjoying steadily the increasing traffics coming to my site. As of this moment, I have an average fifty unique visitors per day. Seventy percent of my visitors were come from organic search engine while twenty percent from direct traffics, and ten percent from referring sites. Well, that was a great accomplishment for Caraga.
Google The Net For Traffics
I have been an Entrecard lover. But one year making debut and never stop blog hopping I put in my mind how to put this thing out in my hand and discontinue clicking the button. Although Entrecard increases my traffic in Alexa Rank but progressively slowly down when you became inactive. I believe it was just giving you temporary traffic but helps a lot for those who are not dying in clicking the button. But believe me the button still exists for anyone would like to advertise. Entrecard lovers are welcome.
I have been actively involve to different bloggers group and added my site to them particularly Mybloglog and Blogcatalog but it seems traffics are expected low. But in the first place when you are new to blogging you have to take advantage and registered your site to them. You will not regret in putting these sites in your bucket list. You will be connected to different owners of blogsites.
I registered my site to different forums from Caraga to Internationally known blogger forums. I have been actively commenting blogsites too. Although commenting can makes some drastic changes to traffic in your site but turns out to be seasonal. This makes me a freak human being in the making. Traffics showing in the blogs are the most exciting moments for bloggers. Blogs are alive and competing in the highway.
How I Love SEO
In the world of blogging, you must be consistent in publishing articles in your blog site. More articles mean more traffics coming to your site. In the year 2010, there are months as you can see it in my Blog Archive, no posting of articles at all, and for the months I have posted, I have done it only once in a month. I became a lazy blogger. What makes this site amazing was the less posting of articles but in effect traffics are increasing.
A lot of bloggers have posted articles thrice a week to increase traffic in their site. And if you are a dedicated and persistent bloggers you can post an article once in a day, and you became an exceptional bloggers at the end.
Because bloggers believed that Content is King.
In my case, there is just one important factor that makes me a lazy blogger and that is discovering SEO. You have to understand that keywords are important in your site. Right keywords are the magic words streaming in your articles. The most awesome activity is when traffics coming in by just sleeping around the corner or go to bed at night. The next day when you open your stats traffics are flowing in. This is the juiciest part in SEO, and I became a fan and like SEO forever.
No effort on the part of the publisher or website owners. You just imagine that peoples around the globe discovered Caraga in one, two or three words in their minds with just a click of their mouse.
Visitors from organic search are fruitful peoples and real ones. The value of their presence in your site affects your site credibility and ranking. This is why the reason why I fight for SEO in Caraga. In other aspect, I continue being a lazy blogger for not posting articles frequently as needed. If I have done this as an excellent bloggers like others have done, then this site moves in the ranking with flying colors.
Rich Keywords Are Goldmine
Another juicy part in SEO is pitting the right keyword the presence of Google Ads in your site. Using the keywords will match the presence of Google Ads in your site. Peoples searching for topics are endless. When your site was lucky for a visit as someone reach the topics, the end of the visit was probably the exit link of Google Ads due to matching topics or keywords. This in turn will put your site in money making online.
Rich keywords will put your site in a mountain of gold. Yes, rich keywords are money. Google Ads will paste your site the most precious and money-valued ads. I will not anymore explain how it will be done because Google has the right things to do. Anyway, I hate putting this site into money making online machine as promised. But if the demands pour, why not grab the opportunity? I have to break the promise.
This is what makes blogging inspiring.
