Tips For SEO Success-Get The Most For Your Efforts

Posted by on Feb.17, 2013, under Affiliate Marketing No Comments

SEO (search engine optimization) is a term given to a variety of methods that are used to improve the placement of your website in the search engines. A large percentage of people find new websites through search engines, and they heavily favor the sites that appear at the top of the first page of results. The following tips for SEO success will help you get the most from your efforts.

1. Three words: Keywords! Keywords! Keywords! People use keywords when using the search engines, and the keywords you choose will make or break your site in the search engine results. Invest time selecting the best keywords and optimizing your site around them. You need to look at how many searches each keyword gets and see what kind of competition each has as well. There is no magic number or how many searches a keyword should get, so there will always be an element of guesswork involved, which brings us to the next o the tips or SEO success…

2. Test and track your SEO. The search engines use proprietary algorithms to determine where a site is positioned in the search engine results, and they protect these algorithms carefully. The best way to get around this is to test and track your SEO efforts to get an idea of what works and what doesn’t. It can take some time for changes to be reflected in the rankings, so be sure to give it some time before drawing conclusions. You also need to keep in mind that the results are dynamic because most of your competition will be doing SEO, too.

3. Linking the right way. There are a lot of myths about the best way to use links for SEO purposes. Massive link swaps are one example of a link building strategy that is no longer effective. However, you can get a boost by getting links from well-respected pages that are relevant to your website. If at all possible, be sure that the links to your site include the keywords you are trying to rank for. There is also on-site linking which covers all of the links on your site that link to other parts of your site. Generally speaking, you should have all of your pages interconnected and you should use keywords for those links.

4. Stagnation and SEO don’t mix. This is one of the most overlooked tips for SEO success. A lot of website owners think of SEO as something you do once when setting up your site, and then it somehow keeps working its magic. The reality is that you need to keep doing SEO on a regular basis for two reasons: one, the search engines are always changing their algorithms so you need to respond in kind; two, you have to assume that your competition will always be doing SEO and you don’t want to drop down in the results as they move up.


Keyword Submit- Trial For Two Weeks For Performance

Posted by on Jan.06, 2013, under Affiliate Marketing No Comments

Once you have your list of keywords you want to use, take the first keyword submit it into your article or ad and post it for a two week trial period. This first two week trial period is a test for that keyword to see how well it performs for you.

Remember, a good keyword will bring you mediocre results, a great keyword will bring you excellent results. make sure your keywords are specific and relevant to your product or service. Sometimes the more specific the better which may mean you should find a keyword phrase or a long-tailed keyword to use.

For example, I know someone who has a site promoting crates for dogs. Instead of just using “dog crates” as her key word she dug a little deeper and found that “wire dog crates” was a better keyword to use because it is a lot more specific. So do not be afraid to dig down a little, or lot, deeper.

If the first keyword you try does well, great. If it does not do well, go down your list and take the next keyword submit that one into your article or ad and do the same thing, post it for a two week trial period, and track the results. Sooner or later you will find one or two keywords that will perform nicely and bring traffic into your website so you can make some conversions.

Once your conversion rate is where you want it and you notice a jump in the sales you make then you know you have optimized your ad and therefore your website. Continue to use that keyword or keyword phrase you have chosen throughout the content on your site. Be careful to not use too much in the content you provide because the search engines consider that keyword stuffing and you will get booted.

Strategically placed keywords are the best way to go. You will get ranked high in the search results and attract a lot of the right attention. Namely, people who are looking for what you are selling.

Your keyword should also be a part of the title of your ad or article. Use your creativity and come up with a catchy title. Then make sure that your article is at least 500 words in length and you have the keyword in the first and last paragraph of your article and once in the body of the article.

Any more than that and the search engines will consider that keyword stuffing like we talked about earlier. You are trying to run a successful business not get booted off the search engines. You must be more careful than ever since Google’s PANDA update.

The PANDA update requires you to provide (and this is going to sound weird) uniquely original or organic content on your site when promoting your product or service. You will no longer be able to just regurgitate someone else’s content.

So, follow all the new rules and just be careful not to over keyword submit into your website content.

You can improve your ads ranking on the search results page if you fine relevant keywords to use in your ad by putting the Google keywords tool to good use. When you search for keywords it is best to find keywords that have the highest average cost per click if your budget can handle it.

Google ads are the ones that show up on the right side of the search results page. If you want your ad to rank high on the results pages you have to have a page that is optimized. This how you will get the most traffic to your site.

The Google keywords tool is easy and free to use even if you do not have an active AdWords account. However, you will not have access to the all-important cost-per-click information unless you do have an AdWords account. So your first step is to sign in to AdWords and register. The AdWords account is also free to you.

Once you have an AdWords account then you can start your keyword research by going to the website and typing in a keyword or keyword phrase or the URL for your website into the text box. click the AdWords button then enter the security Captcha then click the search button.

The tool will automatically show you a list of relevant terms you can analyze to find what will work for you. Pay attention to the column that shows the average CPC. This is where you will make your money. Do not choose any keyword that has an average CPC of less than $0.50. These keywords are not worth your time.

The best keywords are those with a CPC higher than $0.50 and a competition of less than 3.00. If you find a keyword that fits these criteria you can try to use it for your ad. You will have to test it to see how it performs out in the marketplace. Pick a keyword and then write your ad. Test each ad, one at a time, for two weeks with a different keyword for every two week trial. Track the results and then try out another keyword for another two weeks

This is a good way to find a niche as well. If you are into niche marketing then you can analyze this keyword further to see if you can find out if a website is available. If there is a website available then you could turn around and buy the domain name. The all you have to do is put up a website and use that keyword to drive traffic to your new site.

If you already have a website and are just trying to drive traffic by placing an ad on Google then you must look at the Local and Global Monthly Search tabs to find out how many people search for that term every month. Obviously, the more people searching for that term the better. Effectively using the Google keywords tool can mean money in the bank for you.


Adwords Course-Get The Help You Need

Posted by on Aug.01, 2012, under Affiliate Marketing No Comments

Making money online revolves around getting traffic to your site. Obviously, there are many other things you need to be able to do, but without traffic nothing else will work. You can’t test various versions of your sales page, for example, without enough traffic. One of the most popular methods to drive a lot of targeted traffic and to get it quickly, is using Adwords, and the best way to make sure you get the most out of it is to find a good adwords course.

For any of you who may not be familiar with what adwords is, it is a pay per click (PPC) model that allows advertisers to place ads on the pages of search results. These ads are keyword optimized and when someone clicks on the ad they will be taken to the website of the person who placed the ad.

As the name implies, the advertiser will only pay when someone clicks on their ad. This can be a great way to generate a lot of traffic to your website and since the people who see your ads are the people who are searching for the specific keyword you used when you placed the ad, you know that the visitors you get are really interested in your product or service. Or, put another way, the traffic is very targeted.

If all this sounds too good to be true, it’s because it is… in a way. You see adwords can work quite well but with so many advertisers all vying for the top spot for a certain keyword, it is also very competitive. Without the aid of a quality adwords course you can lose a lot of money very quickly.

One of the criteria that Google uses to determine whose ad gets placed the highest for the same keywords, is a bidding process. It really starts to get complicated though when you realize that the highest bidder may not necessarily win the top spot.

I know it sounds confusing, and it is, but Google likes to reward what they consider quality. That is why they will assign a quality score to all the ads. The ad for a certain keyword that has the highest quality score will show up the highest in the search results which means they will likely get more clicks. They will get this top spot even if they weren’t the highest bid for that keyword.

Another thing you need to understand is that if your ad doesn’t get a lot of clicks Google will assume it isn’t very relevant to your website and will give you a lower score. A lower score will mean your ad won’t rank as high for your chosen keyword… which means it won’t get as many clicks. See why this can be very difficult and complicated?

PPC can be a great way to get a lot of targeted traffic to your site. Once you get your campaigns dialed in you can get this traffic quickly. To dial in your campaigns as quickly as possible you really should consider buying a quality adwords course. Don’t make the process more expensive or difficult than it really needs to be.

Getting the most out of the free, organic, search results should be the goal of any online business owner. Hey, the traffic is free and ultra targeted, what more could you ask for? Finding and implementing the best seo strategies will depend mostly on your existing knowledge, if any, and your budget.

You know the saying: those that can’t do… hire. Well, maybe that’s not really the way it goes, but it works. If you don’t know much about seo and /or don’t have the time or inclination to learn, you can hire a company to do the work for you.

There are a lot of companies that specialize in this and many of them are quite reasonable in their pricing structure.

If you can’t afford to hire a company at this stage in the game, don’t worry, with a little knowledge and a few simple tweaks you can easily benefit from some basic seo and at least get your foot in the door.

Once you are making more money online you can invest in the knowledge, or hire someone, to take your seo efforts to the next level. For now, though, you can start here:

1. It all starts with your keyword list. Choosing the right keywords for your onsite seo has to be the first step, everything revolves around these keywords.

Make sure that you choose words, or phrases, that get at least one thousand searches a month and less than 20,000 competitors. They must also be closely targeted and highly relevant to the content of your website.

Search engines will either reward or penalize you on the relevance of your keywords, you don’t want to be penalized.

Once you’ve got your keywords focus on placing them in your meta tags, your headers and footers to start. This will grab the attention of the search engine spiders and they will move your site to the top of the rankings if they think it is highly relevant.

2. You can use a similar method to drive traffic to your website by writing and submitting quality, keyword focused articles. Now, this is the point when a lot of people make a mistake; they don’t write a quality informative article, instead they try to stuff as many keywords as possible into it until is is virtually all gibberish.

You won’t be rewarded for that, the search engines are too smart. Write your article around a keyword, but don’t write for the search engines, write for people.

If you supply your readers with genuinely helpful information, and optimize it with keywords, your article can get a top rating in the search engines and subsequently drive a lot of traffic to your website.

Don’t drive yourself into the poor house when you’re just starting out online by hiring an seo company that you can’t really afford. First, start making some money and then you can outsource much of your daily work. In the meantime, use these tips and utilize these seo strategies
to keep the traffic flowing and the cash register (virtual, of course) ringing.
