How to make money with Blogger after The Penguin Update?

After the Google Penguin Update, many people has started to think that they can not monetize their sites anymore. Actually, do you know any Google Update that haven’t scared people? That is absolutely normal. Every update will change the game, but there always will be things that work. In this post I’m going to explain to you one that works after The Penguin update. Believe it or not, is is easy. I’m going to show you one of the easiest ways to get ranked fast on Google with Blogger.

How it works in brief ?

1. Create blogger with 5 posts
2. Bookmark it
3. Done

I know you think it sounds too good to be true, but it works. Actually there are more “advanced techniques” that we will discuss here. I’m going to give you a step by step tutorial. Let’s get started.

First and probably one of the most important things is to understand how Google ranks sites. Google does not rank sites, but pages. And in our case we will rank not pages, but posts. The best formula is to ranks blog posts for long tails keywords, and your main blog url for your main keyword. If you are in SEO you probably know that it is not easy to get ranked for your main keyword. The easiest and fastest way to start making money from Google is to rank your posts for long tail keywords. In this example I’m going to give you an example with one blogs that I’ve created. The blog topic is paid surveys. Go to Google and see that my blog ranks for legitimate survey for money at top 10. But notice that this is not my main blog url, this is one of my blog posts. This post also ranks for similar keywords like:legitimate surveys, legitimate survey sites, surveys for money and more. And I make several leads per day. You may say . . . not too much. Yes, it is not too much, but imagine if you have 10 or more similar blogs. Imagine if you spend more hours on SEO and rank higher. You will be making much more.

How it works step by step:

Step 1:

Pick your niche. Let’s say for example – paid surveys. Paid surveys will be my main keyword, so I will put it into my blog title tag. Probably I won’t be number one, because it is too competitive. But I may try to be in top 10 after time. To be honest with you, I DON’T care . . . The most important thing for me is to ranked for my long tail keywords.

Now go to your Adwords Suggestion tool and pick 5 niches about surveys. In my case one of the niche is legitimate surveys. You can rank easy for that keyword. But you also have to try to find similar keywords like legitimate surveys for money, legitimate paid surveys and more. Your Adwords Suggestion Tool will help you for that. Write one article and include your keyword in your title, also mentions it several times in the text. You can hire someone to write it for you. Then choose next long tail keyword. This may be: how to avoid scams for example. You can choose more keywords like: how to avoid scams surveys, avoid scams survey sites or similar. Again write an article and include your keywords in the title and in the text.

Tip:Many people still think on page optimization is so important. Some think that their sites will get ranked higher if their keyword density is with 1% higher for example, or if they start or finish the text with their keyword. After The Google Penguin Update, I can guarantee you, that is not right. I can not say on page optimization is not important. I know very well, op page optimization is important, but believe me Google knows very well what is your page about. There will NOT be significant difference, if you repeat your keywords several times more. The point is quality content.

Step 2:

Choose what you will promote on your blog. In my blog, I’ve placed several affiliate links from my favorite CPA Network – Maxbounty. I just offer people to make money from free survey sites.

Important:Unfortunately Google does not like affiliate links. If you think you can hide your affiliate links with nofollow, Javascript or Flash, you’re wrong. These days Google read everything.

Solution:Use Adsense or create an opt in list. If you use Adsense you won’t get hurt by Google. If you use an opt in list, there won’t be links on your blog, so everything will be OK.

Just upload your posts to Blogger. I would suggest you to upload one post per day. After several days you’re done.

Step 3:

Believe it or not you will get ranked in several weeks at top 10, 20 or 30 for your long tail keywords, even without any links. Google just loves Blogger. If you want to increase your ranking, you can bookmark your blog. That is exactly what I’ve done to start making several leads per day. I just bookmarked it to 20-30 social bookmarking sites and after several week I was at top 10 for “legitimate surveys for money” and also other similar keywords.

Tip:Bookmark your blog posts, NOT main blog url. That way you will rank your blog posts higher.

That is. . .

After that you have several options.

1. Wait and start making several dollars per day.

2. Continue building links to your blogger. That way you will increase your ranking for your long tail keywords and someday even for your main kayword.

3. Choose another niche and repeat the same steps with another blog at blogger.

It is up to you. No matter what other people think about Google Penguin Update, I can guarantee you that still works. And I think that will works for a long time. The point is – take action. Believe me, many people fail in SEO not because it is too hard, but just because they don’t take actions.

No matter whatever kind of site you use, you are supposed to make a thorough analysis on it. The site you choose will indirectly create an impact on your SEO process. Here are some aspects to be noted in your site analysis:

  • As a first step check it for errors.
  • Make sure the site is not banned with any search engine updates. You are also supposed to review whether the site have undergone penalty at any instant. If they are penalized it is better to know about the reason for the penalty.
  • If you are buying a newly launched site, you need to be slow in your SEO process. You need not over-optimize your site right from the beginning.
  • Verify the authority of the already existing backlinks pointing to your domain.
  • If the site consists of more number of pages, ensure that the pages are indexed by the search engines.

Keywords sound your SEO process

Keywords are the most important factor based on which your site will be ranked. The keyword you choose will help in ranking your site in search results. So you need to be smart when selecting the best keywords for your site. Since you are initially promoting your site choose the keywords which is under less competition. Low competitive keywords will help in ranking your site better in the search engines.

A few tips when choosing keywords:

  • Use long tail keywords.
  • Choose the keyword which can provide more conversion rate.
  • Indicate brand name in some of your keywords.

On page SEO

Keywords are one of the most important on page factors. Apart from keywords, there are several other factors which assist in the SEO process, such as content, tags and internal links. Most on page factors are done to favor users and their needs.

Content: Content is considered as the king.  Only if your content is unique users will keep visiting your site. Placing copied content is highly against the strategies for search engine optimization. Such sites will be banned or will get penalized by search engines. So make sure you are placing only the unique content.

Internal Links: Internal links are used to increase the potential of your website.

Off page SEO:

Off page SEO  is needed to increase the visibility of your website. It is essentially link building, such as link baiting, directory submission, blogging and many other link building strategies. All these factors together will help in raising the rankings of your site in the SERP results.

Though there are several other factors to be considered, these three are the most important aspects to be noted by the initial developers.

Keep Natural Link Profile – Number One SEO Tip

Everybody who wants to be on the top of the SERP knows that ling building is the way to reach it. But I have to note that attention should be paid to where the links come from. It is very important to keep natural link profile in order to have better results in the search engines, such as have links from relevant sources and social media profiles. Search engine optimization is a lifelong changing but the core techniques remain the same.

Here I will offer you several tricks on how your site will stay on the top by keeping your links as natural as possible. Remember that a good link building strategy is a long term one, not to try to get a lot of links in a short term because it will blink to the search engines

  • Vary Anchor Text – You should vary your anchor text even if you are trying to focus on a certain keywords like “student discounts”. There are many benefits about using long tail keywords and brand ones, as well as noisy links of the type “click here”, etc.
  • Link Attribute – Everybody is trying to get more Do Follow links as long as they are more profitable for their link building. But what happens if you have only Do Follows? Get some No Follow ones to look more natural to the search engines.
  •  Quality and Link Relevance – The less spammy sites the better! Links should be relevant ones, avoid sites that are not relevant to your niche. You’d better have a few quality links unless you want to get in trouble because the search engines can see that. If a website for sky diving links to a medical service will be a bit suspicious.
  • Social Signals – Be social! Google is becoming more “social” so it is very important to be seen, read, liked and shared. Meet the benefits of Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and even EmpireAvenue (the social – game), Digg, etc. Use more blog posts as well, people read blogs, not article directories.
  • Authority – A link coming from a website with a higher authority and a higher page rank is the best fit for your link building strategy. Links from trusted sites have more weight.

There is a lot more that should be considered of course, shared on many SEO blogs and forums, etc. Some people pay a lot of attention to the different IPs, some to other factors. The thing is that it will be better to link build with sites with different IPs and don’t believe those who will tell you can link build a day adding hundreds of links and you will achieve great results. Even if link building is not natural itself you can make it look more natural if you turn it to a consistent process.  If you try to follow those tips you will be over all the Google updates and stay on the top of the search engines. Just make sure you look natural as much as possible in order to be ranked higher!

What Is Data Mining in SEO and How It Applied Successfully on a Weight Loss Website?

For quite a while now, I’ve been trying to increase traffic to a new weight loss blog. SEO is all I do now; you might even call it my new obsession. But with how critical knowledge of SEO is to generating traffic, you can’t fault me for doing this. And traffic is the lifeblood of any blog; zero traffic means your work as a blogger is all but labor in vain.

Quantity is not the only measure of a successful blog; you need to have the right kind of traffic. In the quest for traffic I tried myriads of tactics without really getting the results I wanted. But at least I came to a valid conclusion; SEO is the access pass to the traffic treasure trove. It was the only way to breathe life into my floundering weight loss blog.

Why Not Any Kind of Traffic Is Good For Your Blog?

I’ll tell you this for free from my vast experience in generating traffic for blogs; quantity and quality are not the same when it comes to traffic. Contrary to popular belief, not just any traffic will be beneficial to your blog. What is really important is if the people visiting your site are people actually interested in the content posted there; people drawn to your blog by relevant keywords. Ok, I’ve got it, you say, but how exactly do I generate the right kind of traffic without having to overstretch myself?

How Do You Create Traffic From Non-Competitive Keywords?

So you need a long tail. Not the one kangaroos or monkeys have, we’re talking about long tail keywords. If you didn’t know, there are two kinds of keywords: ordinary keywords and long tail keywords. An example of an ordinary is ‘weight loss diets’ or ‘weight loss plans’ while long tail keywords would resemble ‘weight loss diets for women over 35’. Looking at the three examples given above, it is easy to see the difference; the first two are more general in nature while the long tail keyword is specific to not just women, but women in the age bracket mentioned looking to lose weight.

  1. Getting an appropriate long tail keyword to use to boost your traffic is not as simple as it appears. A prudent approach to keyword construction is required.
  2. The first thing you need to do is come up with a short tail keyword containing not more than 3 words. This can be the main keyword of your website or the main keyword of your money page. When you’ve settled on one, observe how your site ranks for it.
  3. From Google Analytics, take note of other keywords visitors used to land on your page and see where you rank for them.

When you have done this exercise, you can now take the plunge into data mining.

How Data Mining Helps You Generate Keywords – Focusing on Non-Primary Keywords

Data mining is simply the process of “establishing patterns” among keywords by studying the Google Analytics of your blog. In SEO terms, it means extracting long tail keywords from short tail keywords. This is how it happens; after you’ve come up with short tail keywords and placed them in the most important page of your blog; monitor the kind of traffic they are drawing in, also observing the traffic being generated by other keywords.

Example 1

Let us make an example of a keyword I am presently trying to rank for: ‘weight loss diets for women’. After conducting a traffic analysis of my blog, it came to my attention that I was getting traffic not only from the above phrase, but also from related keywords such as the ones listed below:

Example 2

Another very competitive keyword I am trying to rank a website for is “Diettogo coupon”. After conducting a traffic analysis I realized that the website was getting hits from searchers using keywords I have never thought of, such as:

  • Discount coupons for Diettogo
  • Promotional coupons for Diettogo 2012
  • Valid Diettogo coupons online
  • Diet to Go coupon codes

The fact that such keywords are easier to rank for is a plus for the site I am promoting. Since I am already getting traffic from them, all I would need to do now is focus on increasing my rankings for these low-competition, long-tail keywords that my competitors have not yet figured out. In other words, I focus my SEO campaign now on these keywords, instead of my primary keywords.

Your blog may not appear yet on the first page of Google for your primary keyword, but the fact is that you are already generating traffic from related keywords you did not even think of. This means your task is simply to strive to get to number 1 for these secondary keywords. Not so hard to do now, is it?

What Is The Process Of Data Mining In SEO?

In a nutshell, data mining is a simple 3-step process:

  • Come up with short tail keywords – your primary keywords
  • Analyze your blog for traffic from other long tail keywords
  • Focus your SEO on these long tail keywords

Did you know that intelligent use of long tail keywords can see your blog receive thousands of hits annually? Seeing how simple the process of employing long tail keywords is, you may be tempted to think this is too good to be true. Well the fact is that if you use only one or two variations of your keyword, the results will be dismal as we saw earlier that these long tail keywords will only generate a fraction the traffic the original keyword will bring you. However, if you combine the power of 20 or 40 of these keywords generated by data mining, you can increase traffic to a page by up to 3 times. This besides the targeted traffic you will get from the original keyword. You could be looking at thousands of dollars of revenue as visitors flock to your blog!

Use Long Tail Keywords to Bring Good Traffic

Having a blog or a website in place is no longer proof enough of a thumping online presence. You need to have search engine optimization strategies for ensuring optimum visibility. It all depends on achieving first page rankings on popular search engines. And this in turn is dependent on the frequency and placement of keywords. As per recent trends, the usage of long tail keywords has become immensely popular as they reportedly ensure better traffic inflow. Long tail keywords are nothing but a collection of smaller keywords that are used in sequence as phrases. However, before considering their usage, you need to have a fair idea of the ways in which they would seem beneficial over shorter versions.

How Are Long Tail Keywords Better?

The primary aim of using long tail keywords is to invite large amounts of targeted traffic into the website. This is because long tail keywords tend to explain the web content better. Considering the fact that search engine equations are becoming extremely complex, websites are being literally invaded by several search engines at once. Therefore, key phrases that are found in the indexable texts alone are the ones that are being taken into consideration. And, the frequency and the placement of words are the ones that are taken into consideration to decide upon the rankings.

This is where the advantages associated with long tail keywords come into play. First, they help in refining the search items and second, they help the searcher in arriving at something specific they might have been looking for. For instance, if someone is looking for ‘red leather boots”, he would certainly be using the entire phrase for his quest. Using fragments like “red boots” or “leather boots” would certainly yield inadequate results.

Usage of complete keywords can help in filtering through irrelevant trash, quite easily. Smaller terms would be much more general and would yield scores of results that you might have to sift through. When you use larger descriptive terms, the number of results generated would be fewer, but more targeted. Hence, it would be easier to track down your choices pretty easily. Naturally, when more and more net surfers are taking to long keyword searches, creating them in the right sequence and placing them wisely would certainly improve the traffic inflow.

However, what you need to remember is that long tail keywords would attract buyer specific traffic. So, if you are using them as a specific marketing ploy, you need to ensure that the content that is provided is just as specific and delivers on the expectations of the searcher. In order to convert surfers to buyers, it would be essential to plan riveting content. Using long keywords for diverting only bears fruit when you have something on your site to hold on to the attention of the surfer.

The advantages associated with long tail keywords also depend on how well you select your keywords and phrases. Availing of professional assistance is probably best suited.

Content Marketing – Top Five Ways To Make It Work For Small Business

What is Content Marketing?

Also known as inbound marketing, content marketing is about creating a website that is a click and link magnet. It’s about generating high quality content that draws in users and inspires them to share, once they do, the results tend to snowball. So how does small business create great content marketing materials?

1. Great Content Marketing is Specific

The internet is jam packed with information; your goal is to draw in traffic by answering very specific questions very, very well. If your website is about work from home job opportunities, don’t just optimise a static page for “work from home jobs”, create a series of blog articles targeting specific questions that your potential buyers may have – answer them succinctly and with plenty of original information:

  • How do I know if a work from home job is legitimate?
  • What can I claim back on tax if I work from home?
  • What do I need to do to start a work from home accounting business?
  • What insurance do I need to work from home?

2. Great Content Marketing is Relevant

Find out what your potential customers like to read and write for them. It’s not always about marketing your business, it’s about connecting with the audience. If your work from home site has a high percentage of young mothers, consider their interests and build a bridge to your marketing message:

  • Top 5 ways to distract young kids when you’ve got deadlines to complete
  • Work/life balance when you work from home with pre-school aged children
  • “Why mummy is always in the office” – How to explain your work from home business to young children

3. Use long tail keywords and share buttons

SEO is not dead, it just makes a catchy title so everyone is using it. SEO will never be dead because Google will always be a computer. Although search engines upgrade the way they see content, they will always need to “see content” so be sure to use common sense, standard SEO tactics when writing for search engines. This includes a highly relevant long tail keyword for every piece of content, proper meta tag optimisation and on page SEO and solid interlinking between articles for easy navigation and to ensure long term indexing.

Make sure it is simple to share your content through social channels by not only embedding all social media buttons but also by giving clear, simple instructions to readers to use them: Did you find this content useful? We’d love your share or +1 – click here now. Something so simple can now make a huge impact on search results.

4. Be your brand

Do your clients like to read funny content? Informative content? Persuasive content? Whatever it is that they want is the foundation of your branding. If you’re trying to be an authoritative and trusted source of information – and that’s why your users want – choose a “voice” to reflect that. Highly professional brands should write in third person, brands based on service should write in first. Informative articles should be completely free of colloquial language, sales information and of course, spelling and grammatical errors. Informal, friendly, empathetic articles can be in first person and have blatant branding information wrapped in a warm and fuzzy personal story.

5. Content Marketing Says it Right

Content marketing is about creating the best piece of content for the job. In most cases, this takes the form of articles, white papers, ebooks and web copywriting, but sometimes infographics, video content, web seminars, games and social media apps says it better than the same old article. Create richer media sources when:

  • There are already ample articles on the topic
  • There are complex concepts to communicate
  • There are complex numbers or statistics to communicate
  • The concept has a series of instructions to communicate
  • The audience prefers to watch than to read
  • Your product is visually exciting
  • You are attempting to brand yourself

Content marketing will change the way we see the internet, will lift our expectations of websites and make webmasters work harder for our likes and links. The beauty of content marketing for small business is, anyone who knows their stuff can do it well.

Should You Target Long-tail or Generic Keywords in your SEO Campaign?

There is great debate amongst SEO’s about whether to target large generic keywords or long tail keywords. Return on investment is the main concern for both SEO’s and their clients so it is therefore important to target the keywords which will make the most revenue. By having return on investment this not only has good implications for the growth of the company, it also may increase the SEO spend that the client has.

The Beginning

Searchers who are surfing the internet for generic information will more than likely start their search with a generic keyword e.g. running shoes. At this point the user does not know what type of running shoe they want, what brand to buy and what price they would like to buy it for. It is therefore useful to have top level categories on your website that will catch this traffic and show the user a top level overview of your generic products in stock that shows all options e.g. brand.

The Buying State

Once a user has decided what type of products they like the look of, many searchers will then start looking around on different websites to find the best price. This is often the stage where users will type the exact name of the product i.e. the long-term keyword, into Google e.g. Nike Shox NZ iD running shoes. The search results will then show the user all the pages that rank for this long term keyword.

At this point the user is in what we call a ‘buying state’. They know what they want to buy and are close to purchasing it when they find a price they are happy with.

We can see by this example why long tail keywords will convert more easily due to the users being in a buying state of mind at that point in their search. Not only are long term keywords better in terms of conversion rate (if your price is right), they are also easier to rank for. It is important to stress that even though you may rank well for these long tail keywords, if your landing page is irrelevant or your products are expensive you will inevitably struggle to convert the user.

Which is Best?

Google Analytics will tell you which keywords are sending traffic to your site and will also tell you which keywords are converting into sales. Look at the keywords that converted in comparison to where they rank in Google and see if there is any correlation between the two. You can then look further down the list of long tail keywords which are not converting so well but do rank well and discover that there is something undesirable about price or the landing pages that are turning people off from purchasing. These could easily be weaknesses that you can turn around into quick wins very quickly.

Long tail keyword strategies will work for companies that do not necessarily have a strong brand in the first instance. Short tail keywords can convert more easily as customers will have brand trust with that particular seller.

It is recommended to have bigger keywords in your sights however by starting from the ground up targeting the long tail keywords will help keep your SEO campaign afloat whilst you build links in a natural fashion towards the larger generic keywords.

How to Optimize Your Online Content

Content optimization is one of the most overlooked steps when it comes to search engine optimization. Many webmasters and bloggers often regard content optimization as consisting of only keyword density which involves ensuring that their targeted keywords are present a certain number of times within their article. However, with the evolution of search engines and the increasing competitiveness between websites for first page rankings, content optimization is now a huge process that requires proper planning and methodical implementation.

Obviously, as with any search engine optimization strategy, content optimization is not a plug-and-play technique. However, there are certain things that need to be observed, regardless of your website and your industry’s or niche’s landscape and competition. The following techniques will thus help you properly optimize your content while ensuring that you work on these as early as possible (as mentioned above, I will however not be considering keyword density, which most people already know about and which is already causing a debate).

Content length and quality

Content length and quality are becoming increasingly important as evidenced by the Google Panda updates which have wiped out many websites’ visibility and even led to several online businesses shutting down. Content length and quality do not necessarily go together since this you can have a short article that is nevertheless of very high quality but I will be grouping them together for the purpose of this article.

Content quality is obviously a rather general term as we all interpret quality differently. However, the one crucial thing is that it should be unique content. Duplicate content is always a no-no and should be avoided at all costs. Poorly written content is also something you must always avoid. While it may be possible to fool search engines with such content, your readers will notice, which will result in visitors leaving your website a mere 5 seconds after reaching it.

As far as content length is concerned, an article should typically consist of at least 400 to 450 words. Longer is obviously better although it may not be a sensible idea to have a single 2000-word article. Some people have argued that it is a good idea to mix up the longer articles with shorter ones that barely exceed the minimum 400 words. However, this is hardly logical. In fact, you are much better having moderately lengthy articles all the time, since this allows you to target more long tail keywords.

Content layout

Another often forgotten factor of online content optimization is the fact that how your content is display is also crucial. Keep in mind that the online medium comes with its own rules. Moreover, with so many people now using mobile devices to browse the web, it becomes even more important to understand how to optimize your content layout.

Since your content should now be leaning towards the longer side, your use of paragraphs and headers become strategies you must always pay attention to. Your paragraphs should thus consist of at around four to six sentences, although this depends greatly on your general website layout. If you have an extremely narrow layout for your main content, you will obviously be restricted to fewer sentences per paragraph. However, keep in mind that two-sentence paragraphs can be annoying when you choose your ideal sentence count.

More importantly, it is now always advisable to break your content into subsections via the use of headings. These headings play two major roles in content optimization. They allow your readers to keep track of what they are reading more easily but also indicate relevancy if you managed to include keywords in them (which you should obviously try to do).

Long Tail Keywords

Long tail keywords refer to the terms of less popularity or competition but which you can make use of to start ranking for and to quickly generate traffic and sales. The use of carefully-chosen specific keywords shows a deeper desire to buy on the part of the customer and this advantageously leads to higher sales conversions which is the objective. People who look for specific information are more apt to become buyers.

The long tail in keyword research is primarily an expanded form of a central, generic, and high-volume keyword phrase to create a number of combinations and permutations of the keywords and their related or relevant phrase which when taken individually can be capable of generating only a couple of hits per month but when considered collectively, can get thousands of high-quality visitors to the site.

The long tail keywords generated for the domain come from the current search engine marketing campaigns. You may ask why is there a need to aim for hundreds or thousands of keywords which generate small traffic only. It is simply because of the less competition for it so the possibility of you to rank on the first page of Google for long tail keywords is not remote. If you aim for lots of long tail keywords, you can get lots of easy traffic. It is hard to rank highly for highly competitive keywords but it is easy to rank for long tail keywords.

Another advantage for using long tail keywords is that site visitors convert overwhelmingly to sales and ad clicks because they know precisely what they are looking for with optimism that you can provide such need or want. This then translates into an increase in conversions and sales.

It is to your best interest to have a few pages sending you large amount of less targeted traffic or a large number of pages with each sending you small amount of highly targeted traffic. A long tail keyword phrase can be an instrument for driving significant levels of website traffic. A thorough keyword research is very much needed especially in launching a new website. Take into consideration the stiff competition you have to face in the marketplace with all the network effects working against you. Thus, to benefit immensely and achieve a more profitable bottom line, you have to utilize long tail keywords in your content approach for easier rankings, higher and faster sales conversions, and more pages indexed in Google.
