With Content 2.0 I've Almost Doubled My Site's Size In Just 6 Months

by Pastastic Matt

That's right, I couldn't quite believe it either. Prior to adding some of SBI's easy-to-make Content 2.0 invitations to some carefully chosen pasta pages, I was at roughly the 100-page mark.

Since then however all kinds of submissions have arrived, from reader's pasta recipes to pasta machine thoughts and problems, and a whole host of cooking questions. Meaning I'm now close to 200 pages, and still growing on a daily basis!

Not only does this boost in pages make my site more findable for the search engines - in turn matching more web users' search queries and thus driving more and more traffic to my site (the more it grows, erm, the more it grows!) - but it also has another great advantage. It helps me to truly understand what my readers want, and build content that meets their needs.

A great example is my Ask A Question page. I've received numerous pasta questions from budding cooks right around the world, and a great many of these are on sub-topics I'd never have thought of in a million years.

Some examples...

- How to make transparent pasta

- How do dry pasta

- How to freeze lasagna (a really popular topic this, and therefore one I may build a whole section on in future)

- Pasta homework challenges, and much more...

That's quite a tool. And the best thing... it's included in SBI's price, rather than being an expensive add-on. Wonderful stuff.

Important Disclosure

This site was started by SiteSell.com (creator of SBI!) to showcase Content 2.0.

The vast majority of pages on this site are from submissions by real SBI! owners who want to share their stories with you.

They receive no compensation of any kind from SiteSell.com. Their stories are true.

Feel free to interact with any of them with your questions or comments. Use the Comments section at the end of each story.

You will notice a common thread here... These people simply do it. They have "BAM"...

Brain (knowledge of something) Attitude (positive) Motivation" (willing to work).

BAM is the key ingredient that you must add to SBI!. To elaborate...

"Brain" does not mean "brainy." It means they have, or have developed, knowledge in a niche (perhaps from a hobby, job, other life experience).

"Attitude" means they are positive, optimistic people who work well with others (this is why the SBI! Forums are unmatched in the small e-business world).

"Motivation" means they want to build a business and take control of their lives enough to sacrifice some leisure activities.

We point this out because we do not want to falsely raise your expectations. SBI! does not deliver "automatic success." Nothing can.

Your degree of success depends on your own level of "BAM," upon how much time you devote to building your Web business, and upon following the process correctly (every successful SBIer will tell you, "Follow the Action Guide").

SBI! does deliver what it promises... your best chance at e-business success. SBI! works... if you work it.
