Optimize Your Site Like Shepard Fairey

What do I mean when I say optimize your site like Shepard Fairey?  He didn’t become famous from creating a website?  Some people don’t even know who Shepard Fairey is.

Well I’m not sure if you can tell from the picture, but Shepard Fairey is the guy who went around the city “vandalising” buildings with giant posters of Andre the Giant (a former freak show act) with the word OBEY underneath.  With this he created a massive amount of curiousity around his brand, as people wanted to find out what the picture meant.

Luckily, his idea worked.  When he finally released his shirts and hats with the OBEY logo on them, it spread like wildfire and made him rich.

What I want you to take from this is the power of pictures.  When you write blog posts, you must never forget to add pictures to them, and then spread those pictures around.

Not only will it build you links as people use them, but it also optimizes your site so that it can be crawled easier by the Search Engine Spiders.  When you caption your pictures with relevant keywords, it shows search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing that you offer relevant and useful information that people can use in their lives.

I have decided to write this as a post and not just a little blurb in a previous post because I want you to understand the importance of this tip.  It is such a small thing, but it WILL help you get your site ranked higher in the search engines.  Just look at all of my posts, every one of them has a picture in them, and it takes me an extra 10 seconds to do when I actually write on this site.

It’s a small thing that will make a big difference in getting your site ranked above that other guys.  So BUCKLE DOWN AND GET TO IT!!!

How To Make Sure That You Get White Listed

So you spend all of this time writing out carefully planned emails that will definitely get you good money, and you have a nice sized email list to send it out to.  So you begin your campaign, and then see how much money you made for the day. $10

That’s it!?!  All of that work, and only $10.  What happened?  How can you stop it if you can?  **(you can)

This one is simple.  You didn’t make any money because you got sent to the spam folder.  That is every email marketer’s worst nightmare.  If you get sent to the spam folder, then the email providers are now saying that it was a nice try and a valiant effort, but you won’t be making any money today.  Or in the near future for that matter.

So what do you do to stop it?  You get in people’s contact list!!

How do you do it?

To answer that question, I am also going to tell you a tip that the world famous TONY ROBBINS said is the most powerful secret that will give you fame, fortune, and happines.  YOU JUST ASK!!

That’s right, if you want to get in people’s contact list (white list) then all that you need to do is ask.  But I don’t mean ask once.  No, you are a lot more clever than that.  You will ask them to add you to their contact list at the bottom of every single email.

And that is all that you have to do.  Steadily you will see that your email marketing is bringing you more and more money, even though you may not be getting any extra subscribers, and it is all because you have a lot more people that are available to read your emails.

So do it now.  Go to your autoresponder, and edit all of your emails so that they all say the same thing.  Something along the lines of this:

“I hope that you have learned a lot from this email, and I know that you will continue to learn a lot from those coming in the future.  But that might not happen I get placed in your spam folder.  Add me to your contacts list and keep me out of the DREADED SPAM FOLDER!! (its dark in there)

GET OUT THERE AND DO IT!!!!

How To Get More Click-Throughs On Your Emails

Many people have a problem when it comes to writing emails to their email lists that constantly get a high click through rate.  Well, the way to increase this rate is to follow my motto that “Internet Marketing Is Simple,” it’s not easy but it is simple.

Think about your emails from the eyes of one of your subscribers.  Was this is an email that was sent as a tip?  Was this email was sent as a promotional email?  What would you write so that your subscribers saw it and immediately responded in the manner that you wanted them to.

Well, I will address both shortly.

INFORMATIVE EMAILS

If you send out emails to your list, and it was meant to be a tip, then GIVE THEM A TIP! Don’t give them half of a tip, and then tell them that if they want the real secrets that they only have to pay $9.95 or whatever you charge.  If you do this you will see a massive increase in your unsubscribe rate, and you will also see a very unresponsive list.

If you signed up to get more information about whatever you niche is, then you would want actual information on that topic; so give it to them!  When you do this, not only do you create a more responsive list, but you also help to brand yourself as a reliable source of information.  In these emails, all that you want to do is include a link to a Facebook or Twitter fan page, or another page on your blog.  These are not the emails that make you money, they just set you up for a bigger payday!

PROMOTIONAL EMAILS

My personal opinion on these is that you should not send out more than 1 a month, unless you see some great product that your list really needs to buy RIGHT NOW!  However, if you want to get a higher click through rate on these promotional emails (the ones that actually make you money), then you should send out nice short emails.

All you have to do is create a nice headline that draws interest, and write a short promo email.  When I mean short, I mean 4-5 lines MAXIMUM!!  Then make a big and obvious link, and I mean SUPER OBVIOUS!!!!  It is not your job to sell them the product, these guys have spent thousands for professional copywriters to do that.  All that you have to do is get enough interest in them so that they click on the link.

So remember, when you want to increase click through rates, then you have to know what type of email it is.  If it is an informative email, then you need to INFORM them of something.  If it is a promotional email, then just build interest and have a really apparent link.  Do these things, and you will have no problem increasing your email click through rates.

It’s SEO, But Not Really SEO

There are many places that all say different things when it comes to optimizing your site for search engines, and all of these article are written for people of different internet markting experience levels.  You have to wonder factor out the tips that you already know, and half the time if you didn’t already know what they had to tell you, it’s because you have to be a freakin’ genious to figure out how to do it in the first place.

So I want to tell you a pretty simple way to help get your site indexed easier.

Just create your site with the user in mind!

If you create a website, and all that you want to do is make it as easy as possible for your readers to navigate the page, the what would you do?  You would create categories, and category pages so that they can easily get to whatever posts they want to read.

The reason that this works so well is because it now makes it easy for your site to be crawled by the search engine spiders, and the easier that it is for the spiders to crawl through your website, the higher you get ranked.

Don’t forget, the reason that you are on the internet in the first place is to help people out, so create a website that everyone will find fun and easy to navigate and you will see a rise in your search engine ranking in no time at all!

The #1 Most Effective Link Building Strategy

You work hard to build traffic and get links back to your website.  You even work hard to make sure that they are good quality links, because you know that without them, you’re online business is completely sunk!

But you just can’t seem to see any improvement in your rankings, and for the work that you are doing, the extra traffic is marginal at best.  So how do you build links that get you the most traffic for your effort?

GUEST POSTS!

This is probably the most important thing that you can ever learn about link building.  Do not dismiss is because you have heard about it before, or because it sounds hard.  This is THE most effective way to build high quality backlinks.  It is an ethical way to build realtionships with other successful internet marketers, and you will get a ton of traffic just from one or two guest posts.

All that you need to do is find a good quality site that is in your niche, and email the webmaster.  Let them know that you are interested in guest posting on their website in exchange for a link back to your site.  I can tell you that most webmasters jump at this chance, because it isn’t very often that webmasters can get free unique content.

It is a very simple thing that you have to do, as most internet marking aspects are.  All you have to do is write for someone else’s website and you can see your online income skyrocket.  But you have to really get out there and do it, reading about guest posting is not going to get more visitors to your website.

GET OUT THERE AND WRITE SOME GUEST POSTS!

The #1 Mistake People Make When Link Building

So you’re sitting at you computer all day, working you absolute hardest to get your site to the top of Google, but it doesn’t work.  After weeks, even months of what seems like endless work, there you are on the bottom of the fifth page.

You need more links.

So you go and find a place that will get you 10,000 backlinks for only $100.  What a deal!  It’s only a little investment, and the return that it can get you far outweighs the $100 asking price!

Or does it?

The problem with deals like this, is that these companies that promise you tons of backlinks for pennies on the dollar are actually hurting you if you “invest” with them.  The reason that it hurts you is because they give you the crappiest, lowest quality backlinks that you could possibly think of.  They won’t have anything to do with your niche, and half the time they won’t even be real websites!

The whole purpose of link building is to show the search engines that you are a relevant source of information, and that you are linked to other reputable sources of information; hence link building.

If you want to show these search engines that you deserve to be ranked at the top of the first page, you need to avoid these scams, because not only are they a waste of money; they will set you back farther and make it even harder to get to the top!

The 3 Must Haves To Make Ridiculous Money Online

The 3 Things You Must Remember If You Ever Want To Make Serious Money Over The Internet!

Why is it that you just can’t make money online?

It seems like there are all of these internet marketing millionaires out there that are becoming so successful just working from home, and you are left out.  They sell you junk ebooks, ecourses, and software and it is all just one dissappointment after another.

You can make $20 here and there off of the internet, but that’s not enough of a salary to feed your family (or yourself).

Why does it seem that all of the successful guys out there won’t just tell you how to make enough money online so that you can finally quit your day job?

They promote the wost type of useless crap, yet they still have hundreds of thousands of dollars flooding their Clickbank and Paypal accounts every year?!?  It’s just not fair!

They won’t tell you, because in order to make money, even online, you have to work.  And the problem is that everybody is looking to buy the program that requires the least amount of work, so that’s what the gurus give them.

I know that you’re different.

You’re not afraid of a little work.

THE 3 SUREFIRE WAYS TO MAKE A HUGE INCOME ONLINE

          1. Create A Website.

If you hope to make an anual income that surpasses that of the regular 9 to 5, then you need your own website.  People go on the internet for INFORMATION, so you need a website so that you can give it to them.  When you have your own website, you now have some accountability.  You have roots online that people can trace back, so you are automatically a more trustworthy person.  What happens when you’re trustworthy, your readers will come back to your site first whenever they need information on your area of expertise.

You must place unique content on your site or else you have NO SHOT at getting ranked highly on Google for any keywords.  In order to make money online, you have to create a website that shows that you care about the people that read.  Through what you write and give away, you should show your readers that their success is your success.

Once you have added a satisfactory amount of content to your site, then you can monetize it.  You can then add you affiliate links to products, that you know and trust are worth buying.  (One bad recommendation can destroy your credibility).  You can also utilize Google Adsense, otherwise known as pay per click advertising.  Google will place a relevant ad, or ads, on your website linking to another site, and you get paid a certain rate for every click that you get.  ( Don’t even try to click on the ads yourself, because they will catch you and ban you).  Imagine just how much money you can make if you really work hard to create a good quality site.

Believe me, you will see the profits and wonder.  “Why didn’t I start sooner?”

          2. Capture Leads

Truly the most effective way to make money online is to get a person’s email and then send them emails promoting good quality products.  It is a well known fact, and constantly stated phrase in the online marketing world that “The Money Is In The List.”  And it is true.

Once you have created a website, and added a way to monetize it, the next thing that you should do is sign up to an autoresponder and then place the opt in form on your web page.  If continue to provide your readers with good quality information, then you will have absolutely no problem creating an email list of highly motivated buyers.

          3. Outsource

As hard as it may be to believe, you are not Superman (or Superwoman).  Eventually the demands of your rapidly progressing online business will overtake the amount of hours that you have in the day.  Between emailing your subscribers content that they find useful, updating your website at least twice a week, reviewing new products, advertising your website, tracking your sales and purchases, and cashing all of those checks you’re getting, you will run yourself into the ground if you try to do it all yourself.

As a responsible business person, you must outsource at least a few of these jobs to other companies so that you can continue to make money, and give your readers everything that they need.

These are the steps that you must do if you want to make a living online.  It’s not complicated, it just takes work, and the problem is that most people either don’t have the work ethic or the patients to stick with it.

Since you’ve read all the way down to the bottom here, I know that you’re smarter than the average weekend warrior internet marketer.  You are willing to put in the work to make your dreams come true, but as of right now, that’s all just speculation.

GET OUT THERE AND SHOW THAT YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES!!

The #1 Secret To Getting Ranked Highly In Google

You work hard to write good quality articles, blog posts, hubs, lenses, anything, but you still can’t get a high ranking with SEO.  How is it that SEO is the key to getting a high ranking in Google, but when you try to optimize your copy with your keyword, it does nothing but look ugly and make it hard to read.

How is it that the top pages in the search engines are at the top, but they barely seem to have any optimization at all?

3 words my friend.  Latent-Symatic Indexing.

In other words: synonyms.

While Google is working to find pages that have good keyword density, the engineers at Google know that many webmasters are just writing articles and throwing the keyword in everywhere, even when it doesn’t make sense.  To fix this and make sure that the most relevant websites are at the top of the search engine rankings, Google has added Latent-Symatic Indexing to their algorithm.

Because of the new algorithm, if there are no synonyms for the keyword anywhere in the copy, Google now knows that you do not have relevant content, and they banish you to the 23rd page.  It’s a simple, but well kept secret, and for good reason.  If you don’t know about the new indexing, then it’s just that much easier for the gurus to rank in the search engines.

HOW TO FIND THE BEST SYNONYMS!

The best way to find synonyms is just as if you were back in high school writing a paper and you didn’t want to use the same words too many times.  THE DICTIONARY!  In this new era of technology, now you can just go to thesaurus.com.  Just type in your keyword, and like magic you know have the secret words that you can use to getting your site, article, hub, lense, or whatever indexed quickly and easily!
