If you are an Internet marketer, then you will be promoting a website, whether you own that website or whether it is a generic site promoting an affiliate link is irrelevant.
It doesn’t matter which scheme you operate, the problem is the same -how do you get enough interested visitors to your site, so that, if they want your product and have the money, they will have a chance to buy it, before they get bored and click away.
This is the most important problem that faces every single Internet marketer and it is called attracting targeted traffic, getting relevant visitors or something similar. It all comes to the same thing ultimately. If no one can see your product, they cannot buy it or if your visitors are mainly young people interested in swimming, it is no good trying to sell them parachutes.
So, you obviously need as many visitors to your website, who are interested in your product, as you can handle. This means that you need to be highly ranked in the search engines in order that people can find your website. The most popular and most often-used search engine is Google. So, what is the best way get your site ranked highly in Google?
There are thousands of books on this subject, but without exception, the serious ones come to the same conclusion, unless they were written by self-interested safe-list or traffic exchange owners. And that conclusion is that you need links to your site.
Very few people honestly know how Google ranks sites, but it is generally agreed that the more sites linking to a site the better. This has lead some webmasters to exchange links with each other. This is an easy way to get links and Google can recognize reciprocal links. The best links are one-way links, because it shows that someone values your site enough to want to be associated with it. These are called back links.
Therefore, the real problem is how to get enough back links to your site to persuade Google (and the others) that you run an important enough site to rank it highly for your chosen keywords, which should be relevant to the content of your site. How do you do that?
Well, there are many strategies such as traffic exchanges, safelists, FFAs, forums and writing articles. To be blunt, the first three are a complete waste of time. I own a safelist and have wasted man-hours on traffic exchanges, all for nought. Posting to forums can be worthwhile, but ONLY if the link on your post is a follow link. If it is not, it doesnt count and most are no follow links. This means you will have to research the forums to find out where it is worth while you posting to (more on this later). That leaves writing articles as the ONLY sure-fire way to get solid back-links to your site based on keywords that are relevant to your site.
So, you write an article on a subject relevant to your site stuffed (but not over-stuffed) with relevant keywords but then what do you do? Thats easy! You search Google for article directories, lists and blogs; sign up to a couple of dozen of the relevant ones or in the related categories and post your article to them.
And that is the way to get the sort of links to get your site highly ranked, so that people can find you and have a chance to buy what you are selling. The only catch is that Google will expect to see new links appearing on the Internet on a regular basis, which means writing and posting time after time after time after time ad infinitum. Or does it?
Unfortunately, yes, it does! But the process can be automated and automation is the key to online success. Set up a proven, successful process and let it run ” day and night: all day and all night! I use a system that helps me turn an article into thousands of variations and posts them to thousands of search engines, directories, lists and websites, creating literally thousands of back-links!
But do not think that these variations are spun! (The industry standard way of creating variations is to use spinning software to substitute synonyms and pseudo-synonyms eg yellowish for yellow in a random way. This works to a certain degree but can produce gibberish too). The system I use does not employ this method, but still produces thousands or variants all written by human hand. Then it sends them to article directories and blogs etc.. Thousands of them. In fact today, there are over 11,000 sites on their list and the list is kept fresh on a monthly basis. Most similar lists are not well maintained because it is so time-consuming. Therefore many contain lots of dead links.
This system will take your article, create thousands of variations and then post them to thousands of sites. All with your sites link in the by-line, which you can also vary. But not only that! It only posts your article to sites that want sites like yours (based on your chosen keywords) and posts according to a schedule chosen by you: ie 10, 20, 50, 100, 1,000 posts a day, starting on any future date you may choose! So you could write say, three articles and have the first one go out starting the next day at 150 a day; the second one starting after seven days at 150 sites a day; and the third starting after two weeks at a rate of 75 sites a day.
That would give your site at least 3,000 links in a month or 100 a day ” all for 2-3 hours work! If you wrote one article a day (an hours work) and it got posted to only 1,000 relevant sites, you would have 30,000 relevant links in a month. Imagine writing an article a day and having it go out to 50 sites a day! After 10 days you would have 500 extra links a day: 15,000 links a month! What about three hours work a day (three articles)? 45,000 extra links a month. Plus all the webmasters who would copy your articles to their sites, ezines and blogs. Would that help you sell your product or not?
If you would like to see an example of this systems output, you are reading one ” this article and if you would like to find out how you can do the same, just follow the link in my by-line attached to it.
