In order for any blog to rank in the search engines, you need to have a good pagerank and some quality backlinks. Pagerank is a factor of many things and backlinks form a major part of the ranking algorithm.
But where will you get these backlinks from?
Most of the blogs these days prefer to be “nofollow”, thanks to the Spammers. What this has done is that it is put a full-stop to the association in terms of backlinking and traffic referring that used to be there some time back between bloggers from the same niche. So now backlinks are being sold at the price of gold. Would you want to buy one? Is it preferable? These are questions that are not worthy a discussion as the answers are pretty much everywhere on the internet.
A backlink is not just important in term of SEO and getting your blog ranked in the search engines, instead it also brings in some traffic. This is because a link to your post or, your blog is in a way a reference to it and a reference will bring in readers, just because they expect something more to be read on your blog.
Now that blog commenting does not give you a backlink, how is it that you can get a backlink from the big boys in the blogging world. The big blogs ...
How will it feel if you had around 30,000 PLR articles at your disposal?
I wouldn’t feel anything.
If you have been into Internet Marketing for some time now and your are not making some decent money from it, in spite of the fact that there are a few thousand PLR articles stored in your Computer’s hard drive, then you would know the reason why I said, I wouldn’t feel anything.
PLR articles are something that is meant to just fill up the vacant hard drive space in your computer and do nothing. It is not normal with most of us starting out on the internet. We collect thousands and thousands of PLR articles and let them be there. Only ...
When I launched this blog in December 2008, my objective was to only share everything that I went through in my journey to establishing myself in the internet marketing business.
I knew there were quite a few people out there who start off like I did – with very less money and little information about the internet. Consequently they fall prey to the scams and start buying everything that the so-called GURUS of the internet promote. Eventually they find that they have exhausted all their money and have nothing to invest in important things like an auto-responder or, a hosting plan.
Who am I? Where do I stand in who’s who of the internet? Does that really matter till the time the ...
Another year has passed and it is time to sit and review you achievements for the year. But what is even more important is planning for the next year. The big question at this point is – Do you have an agenda for the next year?
Every new year brings in time for newer resolutions. But the year that went never gives you the time to sit down and evaluate your performance on the last year’s resolutions. This is probably because of the what we have been taught all these years – “Focus on the future. Forget your past”. If you were not taught this, then you were really lucky. But I learnt it this way and hence have always been ...
Did you get a chance to see the latest offering from Google?
This is called SideWiki.
After the first 2 – 3 days of using it I feel that it is inspired by the latest phenomenon on the internet – Micro Blogging.
Twitter is today the hottest topic on the internet and it has redefined what Micro Blogging is. But with its extensive publicity and usage, Twitter has become more of a spamming tool than anything else. By this I do not mean that it has become a complete waste of time. Though most of the messages that you get at Twitter are more of spam, there are quite a few informative messages as well. There are also a lot of people and ...
“The Money is in the list” is a useless and worthless statement.
This statement has been professed by the Internet Marketing Gurus over the past so many years and every newbie internet marketer jumping onto the “make money online” bandwagon comes in with a subscription to an autoresponder and a squeeze page, hoping that people will come and sign up at this squeeze page and he will straight away start making lots and lots of money online.
I have seen only a handful of them succeed online. The rest simple fade away from the internet and go back to their 9-5 treadmills with the belief that Internet Marketing and Email marketing does not work.
My beginning too was like this. When I started ...
I am a regular visitor and user of Google Trends. Google Trends is a place I often find useful information and valuable niche information to promote my products. But as the wise men says, “You never really learn anything completely. There is always something more to learn”.
This was precisely what I experienced today. I was browsing through the latest trends at Google and was unable to find anything worthwhile. As I browsed through the various news and stories, I was particularly attracted towards a news that was “hot”. It was about some spiral lights that appeared in the skies in Norway which people were guessing as to what it could be. Some called it a UFO, yet others called it ...
Blog commenting used to be one of the most preferred ways of getting blog traffic to your blogs. Many of the successful internet marketers and bloggers have talked about this is in their books and blogs. This was considered to be one of the easiest modes of getting traffic. But it is no more so!!
If you are surprised as to why your comments are not getting any traffic to your blogs, then the tough truth is that it won’t.
I know you are one of the very frequent visitors to those established blogs from an established blogger. Let me ask you a question. Have you ever read through the comments in the posts that you last read at one of these ...
How many blogs do you have in your favorites list?
I have quite a few in mine. I am a voracious reader and I am frequent visitor to many of the blogs authored by the best bloggers on the internet. Yaro Starak’s entrepreneur’s journey, Jeremy Schoemaker’s shoemoney.com, Carl Ocab’s carlocab.com (I even guest authored a post there), Brian Clark’s copyblogger.com, Daniel Scocco’s dailyblogtips.com and Darren Rowse’s problogger.com, all are blogs that i frequently visit and have subscribed to. These blogs have been a source of learning and information for me over the past few years.
There were certain other blogs as well that were part of my favorites list but which dropped off them in the past few days. If you ask ...
Can you really make money with free materials available on the internet?
I had often asked this question to myself, when I was doing a regular job and happened to hear about the success stories of the internet marketers.
The first thing that I did was to sign up to a few newsletters with the internet marketing gurus, to see what they were promoting and how they were doing it. I found that a lot of these newsletters were talking about getting free money. And I wondered if I could actually get free money. But in a world where there is nothing for free, where will you get get money for free?
You cannot get money for free. You have to work hard ...
