Facebook Will Put Advertisements on the Non-Fan Pages, Google+ Happy with the Testimony

It is obvious that the Facebook’s announcement to put advertisements in everyone’s news feed has provided Google+ a valid reason to rejoice. The reason for having such a reaction towards this testimony is its perception, which sees its great growth in the number of online visitors visiting and joining Google + at the same time. This decision has specially been taken by this social media giant to boost its total profits and increase the area of operations in social media world. It is targeting to become a profitable purveyor of the advertisement universe. Till now, this idea has only been implemented on the temporal basis and the final decision for applying it on the non-fan pages is yet to be taken. This social media site just wants to check the overall response it is going to get on the small scale installations of video advertisements on the Facebook profiles.

Due to the announcement made by the Facebook, it is predicted that the users may get irritated after observing the regular pop ups with these advertisements. This social media site, while putting these advertisements in the sign up, will also take care that excessive stuffing of video or image advertisements is not done and users’ precious time should be given complete importance. In this connection, the advertisements of a few seconds will be run before the sign up and viewers will be able to get a glimpse of services or products which may or may not interest them. But at last, this few seconds advertisement clipping will somewhere hit the psychology of the viewers and it will surely give brand recognition to the services and products.

The most common trend is that every service ranging from radio to YouTube is running advertisements on their network and if Facebook will run similar type of video advertisements on its network – then situation may come that it may avert the users from enjoying the social media channel. According to various online analysts, ‘this common man’s media desires to tread to the next level of socialization on the online world and wants to make promotions as well as people to people contact more happening.  In fact, if Facebook is taking these types of initiatives then most certainly it is right on its stance. Being so famous all over the world, it has the full right to earn revenues. If you are being provided an opportunity to access Facebook at free of cost then somewhere this global giant would have to come up with innovative ways to earn profits and bear the expenses for running its operations on the world wide web’.

How It Will Work?

Some business magnets have welcomed this initiative but very few of them resisted the move because it will give their competitors a chance to show up their advertisements to followers of other emerging or well-known brand. You as the online visitor just have to induce cash through online gateways for purchasing an advertisement space on the Facebook. Once the space is purchased on this social media platform, your advertisements will start running on millions of fan pages.

All together, these non-fan new feed advertisements will only act as valuable assets, only up to a point when it doesn’t lose any members or get vulnerable to any major risks or losses.

Real SEO Tips For The Newbie Bloggers Who Just Started Their Blog

If you are a new blogger and just started your blog and do not know much about SEO but, while going through the internet page, you always see that SEO is very important to make your blog a successful one in search results, then this post is for you. This happened to me as well when I started my blog first. I was searching in the web how to get higher page rank in the web and how to get a lot of organic traffic in the web. The ultimate result that I was getting was: you must optimize your blog. At that time I was not known of SEO. Later I got to know that SEO means search engine optimization. Which means that you need to write you post and play with the words in such a way through which search engines can choose your post easily and your post shows at first when someone search with the related words.

SEO provides you a lot of unique visitors from Google and other search engine as this is the most natural way to get visitor from the web. If you are not doing it in your blog then you must need to do it right now. Below provide some basic SEO tips which will help the beginner bloggers a bit of relief and I believe that they will get some quality visitors from the search engines.

SEO Tips for the Newbie Bloggers:

Write your post in an SEO friendly way:

While writing your post you must need to keep some points in your mind:

  • At first you need to select one keyword on which you are going to make the post. To select a keyword which matches with your blog topic you can search in Google Keyword Tool, which is very helpful. In Google keyword tool you can search for the word to get the most searched word. Then make that word as you keyword on which you are going to make the post.
  • Then you need to put that keyword in your post title: that will be very helpful for the search engines to find that keyword in your post. But please remember not to make your post tile more than 60 characters.
  • Secondly you need to make a heading for your post, where you should place your keyword to increase its strength. If you are blogging in WordPress you will be able to set the heading, choosing h1 or h2 instead of paragraph.
  • Then write your article naturally and try to use the keyword 2 or 3 times but not more than that to make it decent. Always keep in mind that not to use your keyword in such a way the reader can understand that you are stuffing the keyword unnecessarily.
  • Another important thing you should keep in mind is that you may need to use one or two images related to your post. Images speak for a thousand words. You also need to optimize your images. In WordPress while uploading a image you will have the opportunity of naming your image, giving it an alt tag and a title tag. Be very technical while providing the image name. Use underscore (_) in between your image title words. For example, if your image name is “Seo for beginners”, then just make it “Seo_for_beginners”. Search engines do not have eyes to see your images. So, the only thing they recognize is your image taqgs (alt and title). So, be smart and name your images. Sometimes people only read your post because of your image. They search for an image and when they like it, sometimes they also read the post.
  • The last thing is to use some tags for the article when it is finished. Use related words and the keyword to select as your tag. If you are writing a post about “Mobile” then do not use your tag as “Steve Jobs”. Just joking!
  • Last but not the least, share your post in StumbleUpon, Twitter and your Facebook fan page. If you do not have any Facebook fan page create one today.  It will provide you a branding for your blog.

I think the tips above will be helpful for the newbie bloggers because they do not have a lot of experience of SEO. I’ll be very happy if my tips help any newbie blogger.

Things You Must Absolutely Do Before Linking to another Site

Anyone with a hint of knowledge of building a site’s web rankings knows the importance of links. From the search engines point of view, links serve as a sort of “vote of confidence” in your site.

Link building is perhaps one of the most important tasks to building high search engine rankings, second only to developing content that’s informative and provides value to your readers.

Getting started with link building though can be difficult.

Often times, sites with absolutely no relation to what you’re about will link to you. Also, you may have to obtain links from sites that aren’t very trustworthy. In many cases, you may exchange links with another site – in exchange for them linking to you, you will need to link to them.

While you can’t really get into trouble for a site that links to you, you can get into a whole heap of trouble if you link to a site the search engines find objectionable. For example, if you link to a site that Google has penalized, you could end up with a disastrous penalty yourself from the search giant.

Before you exchange links with another website, there are a few things you must absolutely do to ensure your site isn’t penalized by a bad outgoing link.

The first step is to go to Google and Bing and do a search for the site’s domain name. If it doesn’t come up, or isn’t listed rather, you should definitely stay away from it. If a site has been banned from the search engines, linking to it may result in your site being banned, which would be the kiss of death as far as search engine rankings are concerned.

Of course, not all sites not listed on Google are bad. But if the search engines don’t know about it, linking to it really won’t yield much benefit for you.

Another step you need to take is to find out what other sites are linking to the site in question. Tools like the Site Strength Indicator from Search Engine Guide can help you easily find out who’s linking to the site you’re looking at. Websites with more “inbound” links, or sites linking to it, will benefit you more. If you can get a link from a site like this, it should be okay.

Another metric for determining the value of a link is PageRank. Sites with a higher PageRank number (i.e. above 4) will be more valuable than sites with a lower PageRank. Whatever you do though, don’t waste your time linking to a site with a PageRank of zero. Sites in this category have either been penalized or they’re too new to have any value whatsoever.

Lastly, avoid sites Google deems to be controversial, that is unless they’re related to what your site is about. Controversial topics (…to the search engines) can include sites related to gambling, pornography or loans and debt. Again, unless your site is related, you can get into trouble for linking to another site Google deems to be controversial.

Again, Google, et al will likely not penalize you for a site that links to you. However, if you link to a site that’s not trustworthy or has been penalized by Google or Bing, the likelihood of your site taking a hit in the rankings is pretty high.

What Small Businesses Can Expect During a SEO Maintenance Period

Search engine optimization is not a one-time process as most of us think. It is not enough if you optimize your website once and relax for the rest of your lifetime dreaming to be listed on the top of the SERPs (search engine results pages). This is because the Internet industry is massive and colossal with thousands of new visitors every day. The best thing that works well today might turn outmoded tomorrow. This is the kind of drastic change that the online market brings up with it on every rising day. Availing the professional services of an experienced SEO company is not just enough to be there triumphantly and what you need more is a dedicated search engine optimization service for maintaining your website even after your site getting the first rank on the first page of Google’s search engine.

Small business entities can pay a reasonable cost for your SEO maintenance services. All you can expect during a SEO maintenance period are:

  1. Keyword analysis: During this period of sustainment if you trace that the rate of conversion is low for your existing keywords, you can look forward to your SEO maintenance team for regular scrutiny and review of keywords while helping you in setting up more significant keywords for increased conversion rate.
  2. Updating fresh content on a regular basis: Search engine optimization firms know very well about the importance of adding fresh content to your website regularly. With Google’s algorithms like Penguin and Google Panda, the credence of content has gradually reached its peak. Original, up-to-date, interesting and user-friendly content with the most appropriate keywords can certainly help in sustaining good rankings in the search engines.
  3. Link building: It is the process of generating inbound links to your website, which acts as a means for attaining quality traffic from the related sites contributing to increase in sales. Unswerving link building should be done to keep in check about the quality of the backlinks that may end up in connecting your website with other malicious websites if left unnoticed.  Regular updates of ‘contextual links’ over ‘sponsored links’ is also essential as it acts as a valuable resource for the ultimate user than just deviating their attention from your website.
  4. Website analysis: This is the apt phase for reviewing your entire website. The SEO experts will keenly observe your website for proper coding practices, most advantageous structure by XHTML, HTML 4.01 and other relevant languages, tagging of your web pages; URLs, file names, image attributes and certain other features are modified to respond well to the search engines.

Ensure that your search engine optimization company gives you a monthly report during the maintenance period, containing your overall performance in the search engines for the month along with the status of your competitors’ ranking on the top pages of the search engines. This report should also contain all the steps involved in site optimization to avoid chaos in the future.

Top 10 SEO Mistakes

  1. Using the wrong Keywords: A common mistake people make, even the most experienced SEO professionals, is simply choosing keywords that are descriptive of the content of their website without putting in mind what most Internet users will search for. For example, not many people will search for “relationship guide”. If you have a website dealing in relationships, you would be best suited with keywords such as “dating advice”.
  2. Not paying attention to the title tag: Another mistake most people do is not having any text for the title tag. This is a mistake because having a keyword in your title tag can go a long way in optimizing your website.
  3. Only using Flash on your website: Flash may seem like an aesthetically appealing option but the truth of the matter is that it is an SEO nightmare. If you would like search engines to rank your website favorably, you need to ensure that it has an HTML alternative.
  4. Using menus that are in java script: Making use of java script in your website’s menus is fine as long as you realize that not all search engines will read this script in the same way. Thus, you need to ensure that your pages have been programmed accordingly or consider having a sitemap on your website.
  5. Irregular maintenance: Keeping your website optimized is not something that is done once and forgotten about. It is an on-going process that would need you to stay abreast with your competition and keep your content and keywords fresh.
  6. Excessive emphasis on meta tags: A common misconception people have is that they should only concentrate on getting their meta tags right. The truth though is that these tags are not as important anymore and thus will not help your search rankings.
  7. Exclusive use of images for headings: Granted, images tend to be more attractive when people are surfing the web. However, they are not all that conducive when it comes to SEO. Components such as tags as well as menu links are important in SEO.
  8. Not paying attention to URLs: Although it is an unspoken rule not to have keywords in your URL, not all people have to follow through with this. If you would like to improve your rankings, include your keywords in your URL.
  9. Spamming with backlinks: Another common misconception is that the more the backlinks a website has, the better. You need to concentrate on the quality of the backlinks, not the quantity.
  10. Content lacking in keywords: Always highlight the keywords in your content and ensure that they are placed in appropriate places.

LinkedIn for Law Firms

Social Media can be difficult for law firms. With all sorts of restrictions on what they are and aren’t allowed to say on their pages, it can be difficult to see where the benefit lies in having a presence on there. But LinkedIn, seen as the most “professional” of the top Social Networks, is increasingly finding favour among lawyers, especially with those over 40. So, here’s a guide to how your firm can get in on the act, and start networking with all the right people.

Pages and Profiles

Firstly, make sure that each member of staff in the firm has his or her own profile, and encourage them to complete as much of it as possible. This includes a photo (professional only – if you have photos on staff profiles on your website, use these – no holiday snaps!).

LinkedIn content is indexed in Google, so think SEO when completing your profiles. What are your target audience likely to search for? Make sure you use this when it comes to filling out your job title, description and summary of your specialities.

Staff should also complete previous work experience and education. This all helps when it comes to building up a picture of your company and staff as reliable, trustworthy and experts in your field. Likewise, if you or any of your staff are members of any organisations or have won any awards, put these on your profiles too.

Each staff member should link to the firm’s website from his or her profile. Note: On the dropdown menu, instead of “Company Website”, choose “Other”; this lets you input your own anchor text for the link. Put the name of your law firm in here.

Create a company page. Optimise this in the same way – make sure you don’t stuff your company name with keywords though, just your name will do. That way, people searching for you will be in no doubt that it’s your page they want.

Products and Services

What services does your firm offer? Are you a specialist firm or are you in general practice? LinkedIn gives you the opportunity to promote your products and services on your company page. Make sure you optimise this for the terms your target audience are most likely to use, though; remember your SEO!

You can also include links back to the relevant page on your site for a particular product or service, and for the individual who deals with it.

Networking

LinkedIn is a Social network, so this means that you need to engage with others on there. Start cultivating relationships with potential clients – start following their company pages, and connect with influential people who work there.

You could also build relationships with other lawyers or firms who might refer clients to you if they don’t specialise in that particular area of law. For example, if you work in property law, you could start connecting with estate agents and developers.

When you’re sending out invitations to connect, try and personalise it, don’t just send out the standard LinkedIn invitation.

You also need to keep your LinkedIn company page updated regularly, and be active in discussions, which brings us to…

Groups

LinkedIn Groups are distinct from company pages. Use your company page to share news and information about your company and industry. But you can also create a LinkedIn group for your existing clients, in which you can encourage discussions, answer questions, and offer exclusive content. This will all help towards client retention, and existing clients may also recommend you to other businesses or individuals.

Answers

LinkedIn has a sort of Q&A facility, called LinkedIn Answers, in which members can ask questions or answer questions posed by other members. Start taking part in this discussion. It will soon become apparent that you are engaged, helpful and an expert in your field, and it may well help send some business your way.

Keeping up to date with industry developments

Because LinkedIn is so popular with lawyers, it’s a great place to look to when it comes to keeping track of industry trends, news, developments and even big cases. Join relevant groups, such as Corporate Lawyer Network, or UK Solicitors to really keep abreast of events.

Building A Monthly SEO Action Plan

Here we want to discuss the importance of having an action plan when it comes to SEO. It is all too easy to say that you are going to do certain things, but never actually do any of them and even worse to be overwhelmed with the amount of work that you actually need to do.

A monthly action plan will help the SEO process to become more systematic and also more manageable.

Diagnostics

At the beginning of every month you want to be running diagnostics on your website. This will cover areas such as URL’s not being found, error checks, any blocked robots.txt and also any redirects. You want to be able to keep your eye on these areas as they can cause ranking issues within the SERPS especially if Google and other search engines cannot crawl your website effectively.

Metrics & Measurement

So once you have got your diagnostics resolved you need to develop key metrics and measurements and you will want to do this on a weekly basis or fortnightly at least. So what information is going to prove beneficial to you? Well you will want to know information concerning the number of Google visits to your website as well as other search engines. Which of your pages are actually receiving traffic and you will also want to know which keywords are generating traffic and if any further optimisation is required, if you are already not at the top position.

I suggested do this weekly simply because it then allows you to make comparisons from each week and to check your progress. If you make changes then you should document these and see what impact it has taken, if any.

Keyword & Content Opportunities

It is very important that you recognise new opportunities all the time. Suppose your site is UK focused and you just happen to produce bespoke stationery. We have just had the Olympics here in London and you notice that there is spike in the number of searches being performed for “Team GB pens” and this has a search volume of say 10,000.

Of course this is something that you want to optimise for and so you should be continually be developing your keyword strategy based on current trends as new keyword opportunities will always be appearing and your business as a whole could be entering new areas.

As a result of this you will then want to create content based on these new keywords. Of course you will need to adapt your existing content strategy and goals in order to determine whether you will be creating blogs, landing pages, articles or white papers to match these new opportunities.

Social, PR & Link Building

Once you have done all the above then you need to focus about the outreach and the engagement of your content that will hopefully bring you that awareness and branding as well as direct links back to your website.

You might be using sites such as Twitter, business listings or even the national press but whichever source(s) you use, there will be a number of questions that you should be asking:

Who do I need to engage with? Remember there will always be trends and so you should be keeping on eye on the forums, see who is talking, read blogs related to your industry and take part in any discussion to get yourself known.

Where can I engage? There will be lots of people taking part on various online forums and you need to be able to offer something unique if you want to be certain of standing out from the crowd. If you are not sure what to do, see what other people are doing and after a period of time you will develop strong ideas on what you can do.

What else needs SEO help? Make sure that all your pages are redirecting where they should be, that you have URL’s that can be read by the search engines and that you fix any broken links. You need to stay focused on current content and to be expanding your keyword strategy.

As you can see, you need to have an action plan for your SEO activities. Your actions need to be manageable and as an SEO professional you need to be well clued up with everything that is happening.

How Link Wheel Helps you Get Higher Ranks

Search Engine Optimization is a marketing strategy taken up by companies, especially ecommerce websites, to bring their ranks higher in the search engine results. Ideally, companies look to achieve a spot in the top ten results in Google, Yahoo, Bing and other search engines. The concept of SEO started in 2002 with efforts such as Google Adwords, Google Adsense, HTML Meta tags and more. Online businesses has brought another strategy called “link wheel” as an offsite technique to enhance the rankings of your website and bring more visitors to it.

An onsite technique uses the real estate of your website to bring visitors and up the rankings, like putting focused and targeted content and revising the content periodically. An offsite technique, like a link wheel, uses links in an interconnected fashion between other websites and your website. If you take a moment to picture it in your mind, it forms a wheel. The more the links and the higher the quality of those links, the better are the chances that you’ll get higher rankings.

This offsite SEO technique is one the most advanced techniques in use now. Let’s look at how it is created, maintained and drives results. A link wheel is a process of creating 12 up to 116 blogs or microsites, each consisting of two links – one leading to one of the other created websites and the other leading to your website. By the way, a microsite is an individual webpage or small clusters of web pages, making it a website by itself. These blogs or microsites contain high quality content which matches to your business with the relevant keywords, usually anywhere between 400 to 600 words. The two links are carefully placed within the content to lead out of the website. Content has to be fresh and unique, so moderators don’t pull it off.

So what brings visitors to any of these newly created websites to begin with? A link from a PR6 or PR7 or PR8 website must lead to one of the newly created sites or your own website. A PR6 website is a website with PageRank of degree 6. A high PR website is created by bringing in a lot of inflow traffic to a website from the outside world. Basically, create a website with content that makes it very popular. Having access to or owning a high PR website is a very prestigious asset in your SEO campaign.

So now that you have inward access to one of the links in your link wheel, visitors have the chance of keep orbiting in other blogs or microsites created by you. Unless the visitor closes the browser or changes his search to something entirely different, you must be able to keep their attention within the link wheel. Getting visitors to orbit in the blogs adds value and passes value to the other sites.

Initially, the 12+ blogs were sequentially connected. The order made it easy to figure out where it was going. For better results, these blogs are connected randomly. For example Site 1 to Site 5, Site 8 to Site 2 and so on. There are hundreds of Web 2.0 websites allowing you to post content on them, so creating a website may not always be needed. The key point to be checked when posting is to make sure that these websites allow do-follow links.

The link wheel system is an open strategy, done fairly, with one single motto – may the best content win!

7 Quick Tips to Improve Your Sales Page

When you create a product, your sales page is very crucial when it comes to gaining new customers and making more sales. If you want a sales page that will actually sell your product, here are some quick and easy tips that all product creators just can’t refuse to use.

1. Attention-Grabbing Opening Statement

You want to grab everyone’s attention that comes to your sales page and a great way to do that is by having an opening statement that is exciting and gives a great idea of what your product is all about. Not only should you have a great opening statement at the beginning of your sales page, but you should start all paragraphs with something that will keep your readers attention.

Don’t leave your potential customers guessing about what your sales page is all about, let them know right away what your product is and why they’d need it.

2. Avoid Making Your Page Look Cluttered

Yes having graphics, photos and a lot of text is great! It shows that you have put a lot of time and effort into making your sales page look credible and appealing. However you don’t want your sales page to be an eye sore due to the amount of stuff on the page. No, you do not want your page to be boring but you don’t want it to be cluttered. Show off your creativity but don’t overdue it.

3. Why Did You Create Your Product?

Let your readers know why you decided to create your product.. This will help them connect with you on a deeper level while feeling that they can relate to you and a certain situation you were once in.

For example say that your product is a fitness product that you created and you got the motivation to create this product because you were once unhappy with your body weight and figure. Let your readers know how you overcame the struggle of weight loss with the help of your product. You’ll gain more readers trust and appeal by giving them a story they can connect with.

4. Say What’s Important

Do your best to not stray from the point and to keep your writing on your sales page to what is important. A good way to do this is by writing a draft sales page and than reading it over and over again and asking yourself if some of what you wrote actually NEEDS to be on there.
You don’t want potential customers to become bored while reading about your product and that can easily happen if you start to ramble about things that don’t need to be on there. Of course you want to catch the readers attention, but keeping their attention is just as important.

5. Offer Some Form of Proof

People don’t want to buy things unless they know that it’s going to beneficial to them in someway. Try your best to offer your potential customers proof that your product can and will work for them whether that’s by using statistics or by having two-three testimonials on the page.

Never fake your proof! This can’t be stressed enough. If you pay someone to write a positive review about what you are selling it can be very dangerous for your product and if it ever got out that you did that, you can kiss all customers and potential customers goodbye.

6. Prove Your Credibility

Why should anyone listen to you? Why would anyone on Earth want to buy something from you? Those are the type of questions that people will be asking themselves when it comes to purchasing your product and reading your information.

You need to show your customers that you know what you’re talking about and that they can trust you and the only way to do that is by proving that you are credible. A good way to do this is by writing that story I mentioned earlier. The story that shows you created this product for a reason, a reason that caused you to make a change in your life. If you have a degree in something that will has to do with your product, make it known.

You want your readers to believe that you are someone they can trust and do business with without regretting it later on.

7. A Powerful Closer

Your closer is just as important as your opener if not more important. Your final statement is what is going to make your readers decide on whether or not they are going to click that “BUY” button and make the purchase.

When closing, you should remind your readers why this product is a good product for them to try and how they will benefit from it. End with a line that they will not be able to forget and they can’t refuse.

All in all, create a sales page that delivers a message to your readers that says they need your product and it’s just too good of a deal to pass up on. Using the tips above will have your sales page selling more products in no time!

Influence that Facebook and Twitter Bring to us

Nowadays, with the development of science and technology, a lot of new things have been introduced to us and influenced our lives. There are two innovations that totally influence the social life—Facebook and Twitter. They are social networking services where people could create their own homepages and share pictures and stories with friends. Facebook was founded by Mark Zackerberg in 2004 and now it owns more than 600 million active users. And Twitter was founded by Jack Dorsey in 2006 and now it owns over 140 million active users. Almost all of the young people are Facebook fans and Twitter followers. Though Facebook and Twitter may differ in their operating modes, they have a common ground that they give people great influence to their social lives.

Speaking of influence, the most obvious influence is how people keep in touch with their friends. In the past, people usually contact with each other with phones and emails once in a while, but now with Facebook and Twitter, one can share anything happening in his life at any time, not only in text form but also with pictures, videos and audios. One can also get more Facebook fans and increase Twitter followers by add new friends meeting in the internet. Some say Facebook and Twitter bring people closer to each other. And, Facebook and Twitter are more than changing the way people contact with each other. Some people are so used to share news in their lives that Facebook and Twitter become the way people record their own lives. With less and less people keeping dairies in the traditional way, recording things in these websites become the new way of keeping dairies with their lives to have something to remember by when they look back.

It is clear that Facebook and Twitter bring good influence to people, while on the other hand, some bad influence could also happen to people. With all the information of one’s life, there could be too much exposure of privacy. Some of the information could be used by criminals and as a matter of fact, some crimes are committed based on the information the criminals get on these websites. But people would not know what information could be used by them, so there are potential dangers in these websites. And some people can get too obsessed by showing their lives to others. They may always think how to increase Facebook fans or how to increase Twitter followers that a lot of time could be spent on the websites to get more fans on Facebook and gain more followers on Twitter, which could disturb their normal life and waste a lot of time. It is also said that Facebook and Twitter make people vainer. People may feel like stars on the websites and want friends to respond to everything they share. This is not the original intention of the websites.

As we all know, everything has two sides.
