  1. I’m getting a forbidden error when I click on the Johnathan Fields link.

  2. Lindsay says:

    I have just been over to Johnathan Fields site and read the article. What a “RIPPER” the insights are not particularly new, but it is interesting to read each person’s reasons and contact approaches. I really is a MUST READ.

  3. Markus says:

    Thanks for the links!

    Does anyone know if it’s possible for European (German) bloggers to participate in Amazon’s Associate Program?

  4. Michael says:

    Some nice links there. I think I may start some speed linking on my blog too.

  5. @ Nothing,

    It came right up for me, try clearing your browser cache as it has helped me before.

    Jonathans article I found to be insightful and an interesting approach to some ideas on increasing your traffic.

    The best part was the links to some great sites that I hadn’t found yet…

  6. Com’e on Darren, you failed to mention me? :)

    Hey thanks for SL , great sites !!!

    Btw: I wrote how traffic is good from problogger from time to time….

  7. Deborah says:

    It’s always nice to link back to those that link to you….

  8. Thanks for the tip re: the Amazon mp3’s, I’ll check that out today! The post re: twitter is very informative, too.

    Thanks Darren,

    I like the last link for Jonathan fields.. Its working with me (ablog about nothing)

  10. /////////Jonathan Fields asked a number of bloggers how they’d build traffic through off-blog activities without spending any money – an interesting array of tips.

    It would be interesting to find anyone who has gotten permanent return traffic from getting at least one Digg or Reddit or Delicious Homepage.

  11. That 20% is high compared to Amazons usual commission. After December it goes to 10% which is still high. However my overall experience of Amazon so far is that after doing well initially with I have found it very slow to get results.

  12. More great tips and links to absorb into my “blog brain”. Thanks for the information.
