Write English and get more traffic

Tuesday, February 26th, 2008

It is really amazing with how less work you can get a lot of traffic on your blog by search-engines when you write in English instead in German. Here are really not that much articles on people in motion but the traffic is higher then in the most of my German blogs where I write for years.

Of course it is about the topic you write too. Here I have some posts about Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron and this is something the people are interested in. My German blogs are more about philosophy, art and stuff like this but I have some celebrity blogs too. They are visited much more, but the difference is, that I am listed at Google Germany on the first page for Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron. I think if this positions I would have in google.co.uk or google.com I would not know anymore what to do with all the money.

Of course there are much more English speaking people then German speaking people, but that it is so easy to get some quite nice serp positions I did not know before. So all out there write your stuff in English, when you want to earn more money!

And hey! isn`t it funny to not be really able writing a good English sentence but getting more then 400 people reading your stuff, a day?

Germans do not understand English!

Saturday, February 9th, 2008

Like you can see in the Ad-Clip Germans still have a lot of problems with the English language. A German coastguard gets in serious trouble because of not understanding the difference between to sink and to think. So what do you think about?

But it is an old fairytale that Germans do not speak English. While my travellings around in Europe I can figure out that the average of English speaking people is not the worst in Germany.  Did you ever tried to speak with a Frenchman English?

But so what, our pronunciation is maybe the most strange for your English ears. Laugh about that:

Yahoo? Live? Google!

It is really strange. In some cases I started this Blog as a experiment for SEO. I wanted to see how different reacts an English page to the search maschines. In Germany Google rules it all. Google has 95 % of all searches. But in America it isn’t like this I thoght. Microsoft and Yahoo are there big players, even if they are not as big as Google. But in the last week there was not one visit from Live or Yahoo. Not one. Do they know this blog? Maybe not.

Now I think about the reasons of that. I got three explanaitions and will proove in the next weeks which one gets the truth quite near:

  1. Live and Yahoo think both still that this is a German page. They spider not enogh or to slow
  2. Yahoo and Live think that here isn’t any content they should send visitors to.
  3.  Nobody uses Yahoo or Live

I will report.

Changing the focus

Sunday, January 13th, 2008

I changed the focus, the themes of this blog, because before really nobody took a look more then one second on this blog. It was just not interesting I wrote about and I can understand this. From now I will write more about celebrities and funny stuff you can find allover the Internet. Of course I will not be the first, but I have a blog in German language with a similar focus and even in German there are tons of celebrityblogs. But visitors like my style, they like the choice of news and videos I collect for them and they come back.

For my German gossipblog I did not do that much marketing and I hope it will work fine here too. In my university holidays I will do here some on-page optimization and hopfully collect some links. That will be enough to start and get some first visitors. We will see.
