Why Do Bloggers Keep Spamming?

Published

on

I think it’s important to write this blog post.

A small collection of bloggers know spamming fellow bloggers does not work, and how spamming is a ridiculous way to get folk’s attention, damaging your reputation.

But every time I see spam folders filled with 100 to 1,000 comments or more on blogs where I guest post I know we need to make this public service announcement. A shocking majority of bloggers actually believes spamming works.

Many bloggers reading this post spent 14 hours spamming fellow bloggers yesterday. Unfortunately, those 14 hours of hard work wound up in spam and trash queues all over the globe. I just trashed 30 spam comments from the last time I checked my comments. A fair number were written and posted by humans using avatars. I also recognize the human spamming touch in comments too, indicating a person is sitting in a blogging sweat shop somewhere, spending months or years of their lives doing something worthless, meaningless and desperate.

Why?

Bloggers keep spamming because bloggers believe spamming is a quick, easy way to get traffic and make money.

Get into the mind of a spammer. Think like a poverty conscious person.

A person who fears going broke desperately wants to make as much money as possible:

  • without learning any valuable skills
  • without practicing any valuable skills
  • without any concentrated effort
  • as quickly as possible
  • with zero regard for how it affects other human beings

In essence, people who spend years of their lives spamming bloggers, creating off topic comments, linking to keywords, desperately trying to sell their business or trying to sell business for “clients”, are in survival mode, being a few rungs up from animals who simply live to eat and survive.

Spammers; do you genuinely want to spend most of your life just trying to survive?

Guess what? You will not even survive. 99.99% of your spam comments will never be seen by human beings. No humans will see 99.99% of your spam comments because virtually all spam these days gets filtered into a spam or trash queue. Almost all bloggers dump these folders without looking at the contents or scan in seconds to see if an avatar or a mention of their name marks a legit comment landing in spam.

Why devote your entire blogging lives to a worthless, useless ventures that 99.99% of humanity will never see?

Guess what? The 0.01% of spam comments that instantly go live on blogs with instant comment approval:

  • go public on worthless blogs nobody reads anyway
  • go public on popular blogs that are 100% outside of your niche
  • may attract a sucker to click a link and perhaps make a donation to the business, but that’s it.

Spamming is like running from door to door offline for 23 hours a day, boasting that you have the best opportunity in human history to join, desperately pitching any human being that moves, with zero targeting, and, zero value-added service. Meanwhile, guys like Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg built Amazon and Facebook into, genuinely, some of the best businesses and opportunities in human history by being:

  • generous
  • detached
  • visionaries
  • helpful
  • value-providing people
  • networkers
  • scalers

Develop your prosperity consciousness. Move out of a poverty conscious way of thinking and acting. Stop blogging from a dominant energy of fear. Blog abundance. Think abundance.

Be generous. Practice. Develop skills. Be helpful. Help people for free. Make friends by helping bloggers without asking for anything.

Nobody cares about spammers; spammers are the subjects of scorn or humor. I even let 1 or 2 spam comments thru once in a while as a joke or goof, responding with funny answers.

Do you want your thousands of hours of blogging effort to be a punchline? Or to go unnoticed by all of humanity?

Be generous. Help people. Add value. Believe in you.

Leave spamming behind.

Help humanity.

    Hello Ryan,

    You are so true. Spammers are trying to get everything in just a few clicks. But it won’t work today as many bloggers are aware of this and the spam comments are eliminated quickly. However, the quantity we received is ridiculous. They are so desperate. Thanks for the shout out

    Regards,

Why Doing this Works Better than Asking for Business Referrals

Published

on

After I released my flagship eBook – How to Retire to a Life of Island Hopping through Smart Blogging – I noticed something neat. My sales increased 12 fold the day I published a guest post for a highly successful blogger.

Seeing this spike clued me in to the quickest, easiest way to increase business: help people for free. Being generous improves skills, increases exposure and expands your business. Greater traffic and profits follow generous bloggers because helping people for free helps you be skilled and see, two qualities in every prospering blogger who reaps sweet blogging profits.

A large set of bloggers goes in another direction. Some ask for business referrals from trusted blogging buddies to drum up business. Feel free to take this route but know referral fishing is an ineffective way to drive profits because of two clear reasons:

  • referral-seeking seems to be time-wasting
  • referral-seeking rarely inspires trusted bloggers to take clear, business-building action, for you

I know 20 plus web developers. A few trusted blogging web developer buddies have reached out to me, seeking referrals. Two issues arise:

  • the referral seeker has no idea if I know bloggers needing web development; non-targeted campaign
  • I already know 20 plus developers, trusted buddies all, so I could never choose one to refer to someone if 20 seem qualified

Top Bloggers Become Ruthlessly Effective with their Time

Versus seeking referral business by asking blogging buddies if they know someone requiring your service, spend 20 minutes to write and publish a quality guest post for a blogger in your business niche. Instead of pitching 1 human, show off your web development skills for free, via a guest post, for 1,000 people. Do you see what I mean? Leverage. Do not ask for business. Serve for business. Although time needs pass and generosity needs inclusion in blogging business-building, helping for free is the quickest, simplest way to increase blogging business because you reach large, targeted audiences of clients with your attention and energy versus asking 1 person for business in non-targeted, ineffective fashion.

12 Times Daily Sales

I recall the day vividly, 5 years ago. I created and launched Blogging From Paradise. Before writing 100 plus eBooks, I wrote one. I did drive some sales through my blog but guest posting woke me up; why not leverage my presence and grow business by helping people for free, via different platforms? Eye-opener for me. Instead of asking, I gave. How easy? Giving freely is the easiest way to get freely. I observed a 12 times daily sales eBook increase for good reason that day: helping people generously through sites other than your blog is a simple way to grow your blogging business.

The simplest, direct, effective way to grow your business is to help people for free. Asking for referrals leads to a client or customer here and there, but full time bloggers are not in the “here and there” business as far as growing your venture. Pro bloggers drive steady profits through their blog by being generous on their blog and on other platforms.

Be helpful for free. Publish posts. Submit guest posts. Run a podcast. Broadcast live on Facebook. Help people for free to help people for pay. Versus untargeted referral-seeking, this is the effective way to grow your blogging business from a generous, genuine energy.

Why Does It Take Time to Be a Successful Blogger?

Published

on

Successful bloggers implore you: it takes time to succeed.

I advise following your fun, helping people generously, trusting the process and seeing the blogging journey through. I mention in my eBook how time saving tips make your journey easier.  But in the same regard, this journey takes time. Impatient bloggers weed themselves out. Generous, patient, persistent bloggers succeed. Sometimes, successful bloggers realize not the time element and how it works, and never explain in detail why it takes time to succeed. Why do you need to be patient? Why does it take time to succeed? I uncovered 3 reasons why it takes time to be a successful blogger.

1: It Takes Time to Practice a Skill So You Become Really Good At It

Today, I can write 10 to 20 blog posts daily if I so desired. I could easily create 20 videos daily.

10 years ago, I could write 1 blog post weekly and feared doing videos, to where, I never recorded videos as a newbie blogger.

Generous practice plus time made me prolific. Nobody gains skills in 1 day. Humans gain skills practicing 1 craft daily for months, then years. I love basketball. A handful of NBA players disclose how terrible they played after picking up a ball for the first time, 5 or 10 years, prior. Patient, persistent practice and time polished their skills to the point they became successful enough to go pro. Blogging is no different. Successful bloggers practice daily for years before being skilled enough to become a pro.

2: It Takes Time to Gain Big Exposure

Gaining big exposure for success takes time. Every creative act expands your presence a little bit more but those little bits add up over time. New bloggers blind themselves to this concept, believing 1 day and 1 blog post gives them successful exposure enough to make money and gain clout. Nope. Time reveals persistently generous bloggers because getting massive exposure requires months to years of generous, patient, persistent service.

No human can begin blogging at 8 AM as a new blogger and land a Forbes appearance by 12 noon. Nobody knows you. You have no exposure. Humans require time to create and connect in enough spots to gain success promoting exposure. Relax. You are on the way. But allow for time and generosity to leverage your presence. Time is required to be seen in many places.

3: It Takes Time to Uncover and Feel and Release Fears

Do you want to know why I wrote this post? I uncovered this reason a few moments ago. I noticed one income stream yield lesser amounts over the 2 days prior and felt a tiny but palpable surge of fear. Aha! I got you. Feeling fear, I released it and proceeded. I blogged for 10 years. I still feel tiny fears if an income stream yields less money, day to day, based on my expectations. But I needed to face this fear to make more money. New bloggers generally have deep fears concerning money, success and freedom. It takes time to feel and release fears concerning making more than $1 a day until you vibe at the $100, $1000 or $10,000 monthly – or more – level of blogging income.

Time unearths fears for feeling and releasing, to reach the next level of blogging success.

Be patient.

Time is a great blogging ally.

All you need flows to you over time.

Generously create, connect, follow your fun and nudge into fears.

Success is yours.

What Does Your Blogging Network Look Like?

Published

on

I do nothing on my own.

Everything is a team effort.

As I teach in my blogger networking eBook, the way to increased, ever-expanding blogging success is to look for, grow and tap into a huge, loyal network of blogging friends through the power of generosity. Be generous. Help people. Shout out fellow bloggers. Release expectations. Get super connected. Most of us understand this is how to succeed online; be generous and get connected because 100 is better than 1. 100 friend efforts are far better than your effort alone.

One basic problem arises for most new or struggling bloggers: overcoming the deep fear of networking. For odd reasons, humans cling to pulsating fears concerning reaching out to other human beings. Bloggers fear being rejected, failing, being criticized or giving up credit for their blogging success. Honor that fear. See how far you get on your own steam. Not only that, the agony of micro-managing makes you sick, broke and quite dumb, if you are honest with yourself. How silly of you! Why do everything on your own today? Why not comment genuinely on a few blogs, retweet a few blogger blog posts and mention a few bloggers on your blog? Begin networking. Build a network. Succeed online.

What’s It Look Like?

Be honest, my blogging sweet robbins. What does your network look like? Is it even there? Do you even have a network? Many bloggers publish a post, share it to Twitter and Facebook and sit there, dumbfounded. Do you honestly believe your network just materializes out of thin air? Nope. But if you buy my eBook, follow my 13 steps and build your blogger buddy network by being generous, you can land on famous blogs, earn coin and drive traffic to your blog, too. Everything hinges on your honesty. Admit having only 1, 3 or zero blogging buddies. Truths set you free to network generously and successfully.

How to Grow Your Network

Simple. Be generous. Begin now. Publish a thoughtful, personalized comment below. Be seen. I cannot read all comments but the thousands of people who read blogging tips tend to read comments. Somebody eventually reads your blog comment if you comment genuinely and generously every day on Blogging Tips after reading posts. Someone clicks your link because they love your comment and want to meet you. One visit to your blog later, you may have a blogging buddy, or even a client or customer. Or maybe you have a loyal reader. This is networking 101; be generous, engage people and you build your network.

But do not stop after commenting on Blogging Tips. Branch out. Go wide. Read and comment genuinely on other blogs in your niche. Make more friends. Life gets easier and easier if you have more blogging friends in your corner because these folks inspire you to keep going, plus your friends amplify your presence exponentially.

Be generous and genuine. Reach out to more bloggers every day. Networking is a bit uncomfortable sometimes if you look for immediate returns but gliding through these temporary feelings helps you tap into something special with your blog. Connected bloggers have no issues growing their blogging business because 100 is better than 1. Remember that they next time you try to go lone wolf with your blogging campaign.
