How To Get Traffic To Your Blog: Amazon Kindle Store

DiggThisI have found a new way to bring traffic to your blogs and make some extra income while doing it. How many people do you know that uses a Kindle? I know at least 5 people that use one. For those who are not sure what a Kindle is, it is an electronic portable reading device that allows you to read books, newspapers, magazines, and blogs wirelessly. You don’t even have to have a computer.

Did you know that if your blog is listed with Kindle Publishing they can subscribe to your blog through their Kindle? The Amazon Kindle Store will charge Kindle users for each blog they subscribe to. This is where the extra income comes into play. As the blog owner you will receive 30% of each monthly blog subscription your blog has. You can also have more than one blog listed.

It is free for blog owners to join and add their blogs to the service. All that you have to do is to create an account and make sure that you fill out the account info page. Once that is completed enter your blog information by simply clicking “Add A Blog”. Here it will ask you for a description of your blog, the URL for the blogs RSS Feed, your blog tagline, a screenshot of your blog, your blog’s URL, and some keywords that users would associate with your blog for searchable ability. My blog was published quickly but the promise they make is within 72 hours after submitting your blog it will become published.

Since it is a free service for blog owners, you won’t lose anything by adding this to your list of traffic generating ideas.

If you have a Kindle and would like to subscribe to my blog through your Kindle look in the left sidebar for the link.

I learned about Kindle Publishing from Suzanne Wells post over at her new blog Make Money With Your Brain. Click here for her post on Amazon Kindle Publishing.
