Five Secret Ways to Get More Traffic From Your Articles

 Let me tell you what’s involved if an Internet marketer or blogger wants to promote a product or write an article for his or her blog. The first thing they have to do is research the subject or topic they wants to write about and we all know that this can take hours. Next they have to write, format, proof read and post the article to their website. Sometimes this process can be very very frustrating and time consuming, because as you are writing an article, sometimes you can get hit with writer's block or worse still cannot find anything to write about anyway. So you can see that every article that is written is very precious in the eyes of the writer. Now as soon as that article has been posted on the Internet marketer’s or blogger’s website, that article becomes old content once it gets indexed. To make matters worse even though the content gets indexed there is no guarantee that anyone will even find it on the search engines.

Back to Basics: 5 SEO Tips for 2012

2011 was a big year for Internet marketers, especially with the Google Panda/Farmer update taking down former monoliths in the SEO world. So, what is your resolution in 2012? Beat the algorithm, that’s what. Well, you can’t beat Google, but you can do some simple things to help your SEO efforts. Some of these tips may seem a little familiar to pre-2012 SEO, but they now have special emphasis. Original Content Do you know why most of those monoliths were taken down from Google heaven to veritable hell? Because they had 1,000 pages on the same topic. “How to play a guitar”, “how to manually play a guitar”, “how do I play a guitar?” “how does one play a guitar?” Both people and search engines got tired of this. There are also those terrible scraper sites that steal people’s content in the hopes of ranking above them.How do you beat this? Work on some good and original content that people will like, not just reiterations on the same thing over and over again. Work on Keyword Percentage Do you know that when search engines first started, adding the keyword cloud or having a keyword percentage of 10% was considered good? Can...

In order to prevent link manipulation, many factors incorporated in today’s ranking algorithms are not disclosed.

Mistakes you Don’t Want to Make when Marketing Online

Often, business owners fail to recognize the complexity behind successfully marketing online. Since the Internet is so accessible, they figure it’s just as easy to create an effective online presence. They end up diving in and messing up their potential earning power through poor page rates and ill-conceived pay-per-click campaigns. Don’t make these same mistakes … Keyword Stuffing isn’t Gravy So search engines find your site by inbound links and keywords. The more keywords, the better, right? Wrong. Too many inexperienced online marketers stuff keywords into website copy. The result is difficult-to-read, often pointless, and most usually unhelpful to the reader. Instead of getting a better position in search results, you’ll get knocked. Ideally, your copy should have 2-4% keyword density. A Link isn’t Always Good Yes, one of the ways your site gets ranked is by the number of inbound links. When a site has a link to yours, you are deemed as important, credible … or not. If the link to your site is on a website with a poor page rank, it can actually harm your positioning. This is never truer than with the terrible marketing practice of link farming. There are credible ways to add links to...

Technological Growth At Its Best - The Internet Revolution

 The phenomenon that we are familiar with as “internet” is now so commonplace and so deeply integrated into our daily lives that to most of us, it does not really seem like a “phenomenon” at all. We take it as naturally as we take so many other real things. It is just like one human seeing another human walking around casually.  However, this phenomenal growth, rather evolution, is not an overnight mantra. It took decades to see internet in its present form, but when we compare that time with the development that took place within that time, it really looks no short than a miracle.  On its way to evolution, internet should be really grateful to aids like web marketing or internet marketing, a phenomenon which really set ablaze the pace of growth of internet by adding more of people’s interest in this domain. It did so by making people realize that internet can be served as a medium to generate substantial amounts of money, and that too, quite conveniently if you play your cards right.  From early 90s onwards, web marketing services, along with the aid of strategies like SEO, helped millions of people to make millions of dollars.
