Getting External Traffic from Linkedin


What is Linkedin

Linkedin is a well-known social networking website that was designed for people in business, writing and working class to connect each other.

It is also a site where jobless people to look for suitable jobs as according to your country of origin.


You can see the user’s occupation, employment history, education level, company of employment and the websites that he is active in.

Another thing you should know is, ANYONE can join in Linkedin , even though you are a homemaker, a student or a jobless person like me.


There are thousands of International people online and I even had the chance to connect my ex-classmate who had been working Singapore since 1980’s.


Reasons to register Linkein

  1. I had registered Linkedin when I first started my first recipe blog 8 years ago.
  2. Through Linkedin, my recipe blog gets external traffic, people who click onto my blog links and read my articles.
  3. You can see the number of people who had read your posts daily and who had connected you, read your profile and left kind messages in your Message Inbox .
  4. Linkedin doesn’t required any referral links or another user introduction.
  5. You can register it with your email address.





What you can do at Linkedin

There are a few things you can do at Linkedin to help your websites to increase more external traffic.

  1. Share an update– copy and paste your Blogjob post URL link here, your summarize article will appear, press SHARE
  2. Upload Photo– open the JPEG or PNG file of your photo, write a short note, press SHARE
  3. Publish a Post– Type in your article , insert photo and links, press SAVE and PUBLISH. The format is similar to Yahoo Mail Compose email .
  4. Besides that, remember to KEEP IN TOUCH with your new friends at the top, right corner of the page. You can see the user photo, his occupation, the number of years he had worked in the company. Press LIKE or COMMENT. ( I press LIKE)
  5. Invitation Sent Message will appear.
  6. If you are not keen to connect with a certain user, press SKIP, it will lead you to another new user.
  7. Some user do not accept random connections or followers. Hence, you have to fill in the user’s email address and a short message. ( I would skip that since I do not know the user either).






Connect as many connections ( users) if you can because you will have the higher chances to get Linkedin users to read your Blogjob posts.

You can also read their posts on the HOME page. ( I do read some of them which are interesting )


You can also connect the people you want to connect by typing in “BLOGJOB” in the SEARCH box at the top of the page.

There , you can see all the Blogjob users that had connected to Linkedin.

Press FOLLOW to connect them or VIEW to read their profile.


I really like Linkedin very much that had helped to generate external traffic to my Blogjob posts.

Wikinut New Decision

I had been writing for Wikinut since 2012.

It was heart devastated for me to receive the recent news from Wikinut in my incoming message box.



Good grief, writing isn't easy at Wikinut drawn by peachpurple

No more earning at Wikinut drawn by peachpurple

The Breaking Point

Wikinut has finally been going through a hard time as other sites; Writedge, Daily Two Cents and Squidoo did.

These writing online sites could not afford to continue to let the show goes on when they are facing financial problems.

The main reason is MONEY, other reasons are sub excuses to make the whole issue sounded  very critical and pitiful.

With effect from 10/Dec/2015, Wikinut had ceased the revenue share for new pages, views and writers activities. That is their new decision.

In other words, all writers will NOT BE PAID from now onwards.

New pages and old pages found at Wikinut will be viewed as FREE and the writers do not earn a single cent.

Every pages submitted will be done as free will , no obligation.

Wikinut had suddenly became a “Free Authors Community” where the revenue share program had been ceased.



Blogg money drawn by ing for peachpurple

No more payment- drawn  by peachpurple


For those writers with out standing balance of pound 5, they will be paid by Wikinut as promised.

However, if your balance is less than pound 5, then you can consider your balance is wasted, will not be paid to you.

I have a few cents in my account balance, considered the money as a donation to Wikinut.

They will making the final payment on 10/Jan/2016 which is fair and square to all writers.




What can I do now? drawn by peachpurple


What can the existing writers do now?


  1. Carry on writing and posting pages as always but bear in mind that you are doing this in good will. Do not expect to be paid by Wikinut.
  2. Stop posting but keep your old pages here. Allow readers to read your pages which may link to your blogs or website. You may create external traffic at Wikinut too.
  3. Stop participating Wikinut. Stop writing, reading. Backup all your existing pages and delete them. Either close your account or leave it there just in case you may return one day.



Salute to the Moderators

Although it is sad to see Wikinut as a non paying writing site, I must SALUTE to all the hardworking moderators.

They had been working hard to answer assorted question, reading all pending pages before publishing them and rejected the non comply to the rules pages.

Steve Kinsman and Mark Gordon Brown had been my best moderator during my stay at Wikinut.

They had given me a lot of encouragements to write better pages.

They had provided me a lot of tips to revamp my pages to be the STAR PAGE.

a Star Page is considered a good page with rich contents to be featured at the main page.

My pages had been there quite often.

Whenever I had problems, I seek for their help by posting messages to them.

No doubt, they would reply to me in the next day without fail.

Instead the  original founder (Andrew) and technical lead (Sam) were not active at all which was really disappointing and a let down.



I will backup all my pages at Wikinut and remove the good, quality pages from there.

I will retain the not well received pages and retain my account.

I will visit Wikinut once a month to read my favourite writers’ pages that I had been following.

Last but not least, I wish Wikinut the best and don’t give up easily.

Don’t close the site, please.
