Since I moved my website from a blog platform to self hosting platform where I use WordPress CMS, there are lots of people registering. I allowed everyone to be able to sign up as a subscriber. I just want their email so that I can use those for my further email marketing.
From last two weeks, I’ve been getting over 10 users signing up per day. I don’t know why. May be they found out my website via search engine. I sometimes think like ‘are they trying to attack my website?’. Another thinking is are they marketers who just want publish their marketing links on my website. I should send email to them and ask for their purpose of registering. What I found out is people outside Myanmar are really eager to find information all about everything. They are using Web 2.0 tools very well and making money on it easily. When looking at Myanmar, Myanmar marketers are still happy in traditional field. Only few came out with idea but most are spending time on Social Media.
Internet is mostly English language. May be language is a barrier. Myanmar language is not indexed very well yet by Google. If you create Website in English, you gonna have lots of interest readers. Very first readers are marketers. They usually left comment with their links in it. Do you think such linking would be a great way for web traffic. You may get traffic, but Google don’t count on it for SEO. Such comment blogging is like spam for me. But some try to be very neutral by giving me some suggestion on writing. It’s good. But some just do advertising and some even tried attacks on website. It’s fun to be having a website. Be brave for marketers’ comment.
