Tip: Prepare Your Blog For The Holiday Rush

Today was Cyber Monday, the online equivalent of Black Friday. E-commerce sites prepare their sites in advance to handle the additional traffic and you should as well. Since it is now "shopping season" it is a good idea to modify your site for the holidays.

Some good ideas include creating posts about the top products for the holidays and some of your personal favorites. Then link to your affiliate sites which sell the products. The posts will both apply to the topic and help you earn a little extra dough. Also, consider modifying your theme a bit for the season. Some options include adding festive images, changing colors, or changing font styles.

Many affiliate and advertising programs also offer Christmas banners. If your program has such an offer, consider replacing your current banners temporarily with the holiday banners. Not only do the different banners change to look of your site but they also draw the attention of your audience with familiar holiday colors.

Christmas season is a great time to create a new look for your blog and to make it more appealing for your audience.
