How To Most Effectively Climb The Search Engines Part II

Now if you are reading this post, then you have read “How To Most Effectively Climb The Search Engines Part I.”  I am saying this, and not asking.  Do not read this post until you have read the first one or else you’re going to think I’m a crazy person just talking about competition.  So if you still haven’t gone back  to the first post then I can assume that you have already read it.  But last chance just in case.

Ok, so now you are going to get to the meat.  In the first post of this series, I told you that you need to define a competitor so that you can beat them.  However, I did not tell you how to go about doing that.  The reason I withheld that information is because you almost certainly picked the wrong competition!!!

That’s right, I have no idea who you are, or what niche you’re in but I can almost assure you that you picked the wrong competition.  I’m sure that you picked the website that was at the top of the Google rankings for you keyword, but that is absolutely, unequivocally, WRONG!!

In the last post, I said that nothing motivated you more than an ass in your face, and I meant an ass that was RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE!  Not the ass that was already at the top of the mountain!  The problem with picking the top ranking website is that there are too many variables between your site and theirs, so you won’t know what to fix and what to keep.

In order to make the most effective changes to your website, you must find the website right above you, and make the changes that are necessary to get ahead of them!

I’m sure that your mouth is just watering as you think about the great tips that you are about to learn, but it’s gonna have to wait because you will learn these tips in a few of the upcoming series posts.  Until then, get back to the drawing board and redefine your competitor!!!!

How To Most Effectively Climb The Search Engine Rankings Part I

It can be scary trying to get to the top!

While countless people work tirelessly to create a high-quality website that is packed full of information, the number of successful webmasters could probably be counted between my hands and feet.  I have always studied internet marketing, and when it comes to the “path to success,” I have read so many conflicting ideas that if I tried to follow them individually I would be so stressed out that I would kill myself.

But there must be some similarity, some common ground, between the paths that these successful internet marketers to reach the top of their respective niches.  But they would NEVER share that with you, because then you will come and take their spot at the top.  You must be left in the dark, or else they risk loosing a lot of money to the newbie entrepreneur.

So, what you need to learn from this little story here is that you are in a shark tank, and the only way to survive is to dominate.  Do not try to just “get by,” or you will be tossed aside so quickly that your head will spin.  In more condensed terms, you need to:

FIND A COMPETITOR, AND BEAT THEM!!

Now this may seem a bit extreme, “Why can’t we all just get along?” is what you might say, but the fact about business is that if you’re not moving up, you’re falling behind.  And the most effective driving force (im gonna stick with the rock climbing metaphors here) is an ass in your face.

If you want to become wildly successful, and do it in the shortest amount of time possible, then you need to define your competitor, and beat them.

Don’t worry, I’ll show you how in Part II.

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.
