One of the major problems online is duplicate content. Google has warned us numerous times about keeping content unique and with the recent updates duplicate content sites have seen a huge drop in their rankings. However, even if you’re a website that published the most relevant high quality content, you can still fall victim to non-duplicate content.
One of the biggest problems with blogging is that it takes time to gather ideas and write them out. With Google penalizing those websites that are producing low quality content, content writers have more pressure on them to produce the best quality content for people. It’s no longer simply to write out your thoughts on paper because you have to really out-shine your competition.
I’ve been writing a lot of content for over 9 years. For those of you who want an average number, I write around 10,000 words per week. That’s a staggering high number but I’m involved in many different projects so my topics are spread out. I’ve written list posts, guides, presentations, guest posts, etc.
No one underestimates the power of social media and content that took “2” years to get noticed is going viral within minutes. Platforms like Facebook.com and Twitter.com are cashing in on their success with growing numbers of users each year. However, it’s not only them who can cash in on the success because bloggers can do the very same.
Email marketing is an awesome tool to generate sales, especially when you have a relevant list. There are several ways to obtain a list, with the obvious being through your personal website. However, because of the effectiveness of email marketing, many people have made a decent living simply acquiring niche related lists and selling them to large companies.
There are millions of blogs online and you’re going to be in direct competition with many of them. In most cases, the niche you’re targeting will have competition from other people and the only thing that separates you from growing is a loyal audience. However, there are many factors that contribute to loyalty and it’s important you have a good understanding of these EXACT factors.
The power of webinars cannot be underestimated and I personally don’t have the tools to launch a webinar series. However, many of the top bloggers occasionally will host webinars and the conversion rate will be through the roof. It’s important to note that webinars are NOT as simple as attracting people to a portal and promising to answer questions.
Studying the Google freshness update has taught me a lot about the way websites will be ranked going forward. In the last “3” parts of my series, I discussed the following elements… First, Google will adjust freshness score depending on how frequently new content is added to your website. Secondly, the freshness score of a website will be influenced by how often changes are ma ...
Technology is bringing a lot of changes in the way people engage online. For bloggers, we see new trends developing in email marketing, web design, and content marketing. With visitors, we see a new search pattern developing, changing from general search phrases to more long tail keywords including LSI (latent semantic indexing).
I’m a true believer that guest posting can be very effective in generating traffic and fresh new ideas for your blog. When I first started my blog, I remember everyone telling me to search for guest blogging opportunities because they can increase brand awareness and traffic growth. Now that I’ve been blogging for several years, I’ve started to accept guest posts for my blog, h ...
Infographics are gaining popularity as being the best way to provide value information quickly to visitors. Online tools have made it very easy to create infographics within minutes and the value cannot be underestimated. However, infographics still are very large files often best displayed on desktop PCs.
It’s important to treat local business websites differently than those focusing globally. Even though local websites are a lot easier to rank for because of the “targeted” keywords used by these businesses, I’m surprised at the common mistakes seen when skimming through their SEO campaign. You have to treat local websites completely different than general websites because your ...
The Google freshness aspect of the algorithm has changed the way that websites are ranked within the SERP’s. Google is rewarding those websites that make frequent changes to their website with higher rankings within the SERP’s. It’s a great way to ensure that the content found by searchers is always up-to-date so Google will continue to dominate the search engines.
In the 1st part of the series, we discussed how adding fresh new content can increase your Google rankings. Adding fresh content will build brand loyalty and increase the rate at which your website is indexed. This means you have a higher chance of your pages being listed within the SERP’s for specific keywords.
Over the years, I’ve been experimenting with different link building strategies and came across something interesting. Building links from authority websites is an awesome way for people to add value to their link building campaign. Having solid links from websites with a high domain and page authority can boost rankings quickly.
Affiliate marketers make millions of dollars each year promoting niche related products. What’s even more intriguing is that companies use networks to generate leads, conversions, and brand awareness. This is why you have hundreds of new affiliate networks and associates popping up each year. This is great for companies who are looking to leverage the marketing and brand awaren ...
Every blogger will tell you that collecting email addresses from the start is very important. Neil Patel stated that it’s very hard to get 100,000 visitors per month to your blog without having consistent return visitors through email marketing. You have several easy to install web forms that make collecting email addresses and sending follow-ups very easy.
Google freshness update implemented within its algorithm has just opened up larger opportunities from websites to increase their rankings. Making slight adjustments to your blog and older content can have a huge benefit going forward. To encourage bloggers from constantly updating their information, they added this update, which I believe was genius.
Over the years, bloggers have found many creative ways to build links to boost rankings within the SERP’s. These are methods that are outside of the normal link building strategies like article directories, blog commenting, guest blogging, etc. The broken backlink method can be very difficult to utilize but if you have the knowledge, then you can use it to gain higher rankings ...
