M. Ward, Jim James, Conor Oberst, and Mike Mogis Form Monsters of Folk

With Your Powers Combined - I Am Captain Folk!

Your eyes don’t deceive you. Monsters of Folk—aka Conor Oberst, My Morning Jacket‘s Jim James, M. Ward, and producer/engineer Mike Mogis is a reality! The verdict is still out and whether this will be a runaway Traveling Wilburys-like success or a M.O.R. Highwaymen-esque novelty. The trio of songwriters are certainly in BFF material. They’ve joined each other on and offstage, been Under the Radar favorites, and covered each others’ songs, but the build-up to this was questionable at best.

First there was this sparse, yet official-looking website and then Relix and Pitchfork chimed in with unconfirmed details. The band’s publicist confirmed with us earlier today that the self-titled album will be out September 22. The record was produced by Bright Eyes mainstay Mike Mogis and features “original material by all three songwriters,” states Relix. Details are very, very slim but rumors are circulating about a MOF fall tour. More information will follow as we get it.

Traffic is the number one thing on the online marketing business. Once you have traffic, you can think about monetizing that traffic and start making money. Until you reach a steady traffic flow, you shouldn’t even try to place ads or anything on your site because if you don’t have traffic, then you can’t generate clicks and therefore placing ads on such a new site is superfluous.

First and most important of all, is organic search engine traffic. This is the traffic that comes from people doing searches on a search engine, and of course that the most important one of all is of course Google. If you can get your sites pages to rank highly on a Google search, then you are practically guaranteed to get traffic. Now this is not as easy as it looks since Google uses a complex algorithm that defines how your page should be indexed and how high or low it appears on the search engine results. You will be found on Googles search results for keywords that appear on your site. Keyword optimization is key here, and when your adding content to your site or blog always keep in mind that in order for people to find it, they will need to search for a specific set of keywords and therefore you should use those keywords on your content and titles, that means that if your posting about, let’s say, a software product then you shouldn’t make the posts title something like “Great software” but instead, use the software’s name, and title it something like: “Photoshop – great image software”. That way it’s more specific and that insures that you get higher quality traffic, high quality traffic are visitors that actually finds your site useful, in this case people that were actually looking for posts about photoshop and not people that were searching for some other software.

Even without keyword optimization your site will eventually be indexed on Google and people will find it for a whole set of different keywords, some that you didn’t even plan for, but in the long run you will probably want people to find it when they are searching for a specific set of keywords, and that is when you should start thinking about writing with search engines in mind. This doesn’t mean you should write robotic language or repeat the keywords 50 times, it just means that you should be conscious about it and repeat the keywords a few times and ideally use them on the title. Just don’t over do it. Always write for people. But always keep the search engines in mind.

Just writing keyword optimized content and hoping for the best won’t get you much success since there is almost no use in being on the search engine results if you’re on page 56 of the results. One very important factor that the Google algorithm takes into account are backlinks. This is the most influential factor for getting listed highly on search engine results. Why is this you ask? Well if you think about it, it makes sense that a page that has a lot of other websites linking to it has a higher content value than a page without any other sites linking to it. And the bigger the site that links to you is, the better. So if there’s a site that has 20 other smallish sites linking to it, that is not bad, but if you have a site that has only 2 or 3 sites linking to it, but those sites are very popular and authority sites, then that is even better. The size and authority of the site that links to your pages makes a big difference.
