SEO Strategy 2014: How to Rank in Google Today

Read the full SEO strategy case study here: http://backlinko.com/seo-strategy Are you looking for an SEO strategy that gets results? Then you'll love this video where I share a step-by-step case study of The Guestographic Method: an infographic marketing technique with a focus on building high quality backlinks. How does it work? There are 5 simple steps to follow: 1. First, you (obviously) need an infographic. It doesn't have to be mindblowing...but it should at least be good. 2. Second, you need to find people who might want to check your infographic out. How? Just search for your keywords that describe your infographic. So if you had an infographic about Facebook marketing you'd Google keywords like "Facebook marketing tips" and "How to market on Facebook". 3. Next, it's time to send those people a quick email. Nothing pushy. Literally just an email says something like: "Hey, I saw that you're interested in topic X. I just published an infographic about topic X. Would you like to see it?". 4. When they say "yes", send them a link to your infographic. But also offer to write them a unique intro to go along with it. This greases the wheels a bit and makes them more likely to share your infographic on their site. 5. Finally, include a link to your site in the introduction that you write. This contextual link is MUCH more SEO friendly than getting all of your infographic links from right beneath the infographic. So that's all there is to this simple-yet-powerful SEO strategy.

How To Find Your Passion

C'mon over to http://www.marieforleo.com/2014/04/find-your-passion/ where the main discussion happens after the episode! How to find your passion -- it's something that many people struggle with and believe they can figure out by thinking about it. In this video you'll learn why trying to figure out your passion doesn't work, and what you can start doing differently right now. Instead of trying to think through the things that may be your passion, go out there and do them. Clarity comes from engagement not thought, and if you're wondering how to find your passion, you'll never figure it out by thinking. Stop thinking and start doing instead. The second part of the passion equation is that the way to find your passion isn't outside of yourself, it's something inside that you bring to every situation. When you're passionate in your life, others take notice. Opportunities will come your way and you'll fall into exactly what you're meant to do in this world without too much thinking about how to find your passion.
