Having A Case of Internet Frustration!??

polar bear in jungle is lost joke

Lost and Confused!

Father Quinn was preparing Thomas for his departure from this world.

In a quiet but firm tone, the priest whispered, "Denounce the devil, Thomas!  Tell him that he is evil and that you want nothing to do with him."

Thomas said nothing, he made no response at all.  Father Quinn repeated more loudly, "Denounce the devil, Thomas!  Tell him that he is evil and that you want nothing to do with him."

Thomas still made no response at all.

In an even louder voice, Father Quinn asked Thomas, "Why won't you denounce the devil and his evil?"

Thomas answered,, "Father, until I know where I am going, I am not going to aggravate any one."

Lost?  Confused?  Having A Case of Internet Frustration!??

Feeling LOST as an new Internet Marketer is normal.  If you are like I was, you may  not know where you are going or how to get there.   I'd say that I was lost.  

To get UNLOST, you have choices. You can outsource...hire professionals to handle the Internet aspect of your business.  You can be actively involved but pay for training and tutoring and services.  
You can do it yourself.  I chose to do it myself at a time (over 15 years ago) when free resources were almost non-existent.  Today, a 'do it yourself' approach is easier than ever.   Why?   You have nearly all the resources you need at your fingertips (on the Internet) and for free.  

Getting UNLOST!
  1. Set goals and objectives...some examples are sales, conversions, traffics, sign ups, # of sites, # of web pages, # of posts, social media, downloads, learning objectives, training, etc.
  2. Wear out your search box!  You are going to need a lot of help.  Use your search box...Google knows all.
  3. Track your results.  I check my traffic (Awstats) daily. I check my Alexa ranking about twice per month. (see below)
  4. Learn from others...Visit  and join sites like IBO.  Join forums that are relative to your niche.  (see below)
  5. Learn from your competitors. (see below)

Alexa Traffic Ranking

Alexa is a paid service that helps websites improve their traffic rankings,.  You can check your traffic ranking for free.

What you will discover is that Alexa will tell you much more than your traffic ranking about your site and your competition.

Alexa Ranking for

Although I am far from happy with my new site's ranking (5 months old), the number in the green box above, shows the gain or decline in your sites traffic rank over the last three months.  The arrow is pointing up which means a gain.  Yes, that is a 2.5+ Million can join me free (see below).

Alexa shows bounce rate,  # of page views per visitor and daily time on site and the percent of change vs. the previous three months.  Your up or down percent of change tells you whether your efforts are successful.   

It also shows your search traffic, keywords used to find your site,  your upstream sites. (downstream sites as a paid subscriber), related sites, visitor distribution, and your backlinks...better yet, it shows your competitors sites!  We learn all this about our competition for free from Alexa.  
Tracking helps you to keep on course.  As a newbie, it helped me determine what areas were working and what were not...and it still does.

My site is not yet showing bounce rate and daily time.  I can use Awstats for that for now.  (below)


My bounce rate is 56.6% down from 65.3% over the last 3 months.  My goal is in the 30's, so I have a ways to go, but stats help me to know that I am on track (or not on track).  My average time on site per visitor is 1055 seconds or 17.5 minutes.  WALW is a content site and the content is what engages its visitors.   Awstats also says WALW is getting 30.74 page views per visit, rather than 3, my site is still too new for Alexa, but at least it is showing up.
What Alexa showed me on this visit is that I need more backlinks.  How about you?  Do YOU need backlinks?  Of course, you do!  One way that I am going to use is one that you may not be aware of.  

On the Alexa Rankings page of your competitors, click on your competitors backlinks, if applicable, join, and post!  You now have a quality backlinks.  

How do you get a list of your competitors Alexa rankings?  Use your search box.  Type in your niche followed top Alexa ranked...for example..weight loss top Alexa ranked

top alexa weight loss
Not every site on the list will be relative, but most sites will.  Compare your stats with your competitors, visit your competitors, emulate your competitors, use Alexa and 'view source' to determine what keywords are working for your competition, and set or change your goals and objectives accordingly.  

Thank you for reading, my friends, I wish you top ranked Alexa sites.
