man-free-sign

THIS OFFER IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE

The Landing Page Tutorial will continue later this week.

Ok, so we told you we had some good things in store for you. Well, here is one. We have decided to help our readers and anyone else who is interested in learning how to build a profitable online PPC business (or to help you expand your current one) and we will do it for FREE! You will not pay us a penny! Of course there are requirements and let me explain the only way we are capable of doing this. There has to be a way for us, Kris and I, to be rewarded for the huge amount of time involved from answering questions one on one. So here is how it works.

Requirements

1. You must  create an account with MarketLeverage through this link –>MarketLeverage <– or have already created an account through this blog in the past. If you already have an account with MarketLeverage that isn’t underneath us and you still want to join the Free PPC Mentoring, you must contact me via the contact form. Basically, we are able to make the mentoring completely FREE for you, only if we are able to receive referral commissions from you being underneath us. We are not trying to hide this, nor are we trying to “Bank” off of you. But there has to be some return on our time that we will have to put into this. Also, if you have been too cheap to sign up for PPC Classroom, The Black Ink Project or PPC-Coach, then this is an alternative for you. But don’t think we are going to let you sign up, help you and you never make a dollar with MarketLeverage. So read the next requirement.

Backlinks Are B-E-A-UTIFUL!

Before I blog about this please remember that not all backlinks are created equally. Not all backlinks are good.  Not all backlinks are worth your time…ok… Remember that with proper SEO you can out do a site with 10,000 backlinks with a site that has 200 backlinks…

We all love backlinks.  No really we do.  I know I just got done telling you some stuff about backlinks up there in bold lettering… But still.  This is a great technique that you can use.  And I’m sure all of you can think of other uses for some of these tools I’m going to share with you.

This technique that I am going to show you will help you get some link juice from RSS feeds.  It is basically a technique where you take an RSS feed and send it out to several different RSS Aggregators.

_____________________________________

  1. Jump over to RSS Mix <–click that….
  2. Add Several different RSS feeds to the list.
    • Your Blog RSS Feed
    • Your ezine article feed
    • Your Social Bookmark site feeds

    You can literally add anything to the RSS feed.  Videos, podcasts, articles, whatever you want!
    If you don’t have an RSS feed for your website then you need to head over to Dapper.net to create one from your existing content.These feeds should be in your niche and to YOUR sites.  Don’t gather feeds from someone elses content. That would defeat the purpose of getting YOURSELF backlinks.

  3. Click create.  This will generate a new RSS feed.  The new RSS feed is filled with the RSS feeds that you inserted.  It basically combined everything for you and put it into one easy to use feed :)
  4. Jump over to RSS Aggregators and submit your new pumped up RSS feed!
    Here is a list of sites you can use!

An Interview with Andrew Who?

Last Wednesday I had the opportunity to be interviewed by Andrew Wee. Andrew runs the blog Who is Andrew Wee. The interview was about 30 minutes long.  We had talked about getting into the subject of PPC before the interview began but we ended up going off on SEO and some basic SEO strategies for link backs and directories.

It’s a pretty good interview if you ask me and if you are in the SEO mood I suggest listening to it at Andrew’s blog. It’s full of some great tips and my personal opinions on back linking and other aspects of SEO.  So, go check it out and tell me what you think!

Sorry for the delay… A word on SEO

Sorry it has taken me a bit to get on here. I have a client that is having some major SEO issues. If you didn’t notice. Google went around a few days back and started hitting people hard. So I’ve been really working hard to help this client get his rankings back in the search engines.

I promise I haven’t forgotten about the landing page I said I would show you. I’ll get it up tomorrow evening. (It’s 11:00 pm right now).

Working with this client of mine really made me think about some SEO factors that I know about… But have been slacking on. When you are trying to optimize your site for a specific keyword you have to realize that there are other people online that are trying to do the same thing for their website… for the EXACT same keyword/phrase. If you leave a website site without working on it… You will have problems.

Take my client for example. He is using me for SEO Consultation. In other words I find out why his competition is ranked higher than him. I then let him know what I feel is the best action for him to take in order to dominate the keyword/phrase. My client did an excellent job of implementing my strategy for his website. However, that is all he did. He took my suggestions and then left the site alone. He did the bare minimum. So when time came, his competition had done more work. They found more link partners, they had a higher keyword to content ratio… They were just overall better than him.

My Idea Of Creating An Article Directory

While I was in Florida I had the opportunity to *peak* in on some things my partners and friends were doing on there own. While networking is great there, are tons of things we (as marketers) almost have to keep to ourselves. A perfect example would be that I will be assisting in some Adwords Campaigns with some of my partners however I would not dare to let them login into my accounts. Pure and simple, that’s a no-no.

I had the chance to see an awesome Article Directory by one of my partners. He has his directory being fueled by Article Marketer with automatic *drip in* articles that are added daily. The one thing I immediately noticed though is that the directory just like hundreds if not thousands of other directories out there are severely lacking the extra effort needed to becoming a power house such as Ezine Articles or SearchWarp. You probably can and will do well (I have no idea) with just a few generic directories if your wanting to yank in that Adsense income. Personally as I see Adsense only paying in pennies (ok sometimes more but woo-hoo) I would have to create a few directories that were updated consistently with Content. While this has been and generally is the idea, try utilizing what I am about to tell you and watch your results. I bet you will be pleasantly surprised.

The Death Of SubDomains?

I have been pondering this thought for over a month now. I would like to point out right now that this is my own thinking and is not set in stone. Please do not take this as SEO advice. It has not happened yet, and may never happen. However, I feel I need to comment on this because there are just so many things that lead me to believe that this could in fact happen.

One of the greatest things I have ever done was saved money by making subdomains off a domain. However, as changes have occurred over the last year, I feel Google is looking to maybe change that up. Unfortunately for me, I could be talking out my ass and in fact be completely wrong. I sure hope so. As someone who practices SEO like it was a religion though, this is shit that flows thru this mind of mine everyday.

Over the last year, I have seen Google knock the snot out of MFA’s (made for adsense) sites and then turn around later and knock the piss out of direct links leading to Email and Zip submits. This has not only hurt some of my income but it also has slowed me down in expanding my income as well. Now, I have to create even more landing pages instead of trying to squeeze shit by the Internet Gods. However, the alternatives of breaking their TOS with cloaks has befallen me this year, and I made quite a bit of money. Utilizing redirects and offer framing has proved to be quite profitable as well.

Best Of 2007 On CashTactics

I went thru my archives and hand picked some posts I thought were pretty good before we head into the New Year. Enjoy!

Back In August I gave some general tips over making money with P2P Networks and Torrents. Torrents are still alive and kicking and I have not really spoken of them since this last post. I really should but the fact of the matter is that this method is very petty and so very easy to do. However, I bet 99% of the people who read this post probably didn’t even try it or quickly gave up on it. Let’s take a look at just one program I promoted with these petty torrent methods.

Here are payments for the last 6 months. For a method so easy I sure seen a lot of bitching from people who said “it’s too much work”.  Here’s what happens when you dedicate yourself to a project for a couple of hours a week no matter how petty, simple and boring it is.

6 months

Also in August, I wrote a free report detailing how I go about getting high rankings for articles. I normally do not write my own articles but I do however use the methods described because it seems nobody can get it right even with a guide. I guess that just goes to show that what works for someone, may not necessarily work for another. However, the guide is free and it’s a great read….(IMO). :)

In September I also introduced a way to advertise your blog cheaply utilizing Stumbleupon. I have tested this out a few times and it seems to work well. When I say that, what I really mean is that as cheap as it is, you get back about the same return. However, it’s a great traffic building method and I am sure the right type of blog will make the difference.

Link Building Campaigns

I caught a post over at Josh Spaulding‘s titled Link Building Campaigns – Do You Need One?. It really reminded me of all my travels throughout forums and seeing people write about “doing this” “don’t do that” and all that other mumbo jumbo. It seems like almost every-time I seen someone step up to the plate and portray them-self as a “knowitall”, they end up writing something that doesn’t even make sense. Josh was quick to point out that when people tell you that if you make good content, then you don’t need to build links, they are most likely (in my own words) full of shit.

I recommended this post because I have actually read almost everything Josh has put out on his blog and the Warrior Forum. The guy is a real class act ETHICAL marketer. I find myself hanging onto his blog during my time of reform. Whether he knows it or not, or ever finds out, he has written a TON of great content that has made me stop and take a long, hard look at myself. I’m not saying that I will ever stop my aggressive marketing tactics, but I have definitely taken a lot of what he says and does and tried to apply it to myself. I don’t know if I will ever completely stop some of my aggressive (aka blackhat) marketing, but I have definitely slowed down.

Go read his article and he also posted a link to another great ACCURATE post about proper link building.
