Guest posting is one of those kill X birds with one stone methods. With guest posting you can:
- Position yourself as an authority in your niche, since the most popular blogs in it will have featured an article of yours.
- Gain more visits to your website instantly.
- Capitalize on the social media power of another person.
- Get a powerful backlink from an important blog in your niche.
- Get more followers on social media (depending on your niche and article).
Even if you look at it from a link building perspective only, guest blogging is the most powerful (and free) way to increase the value of your web property for search engines.
You can easily start raising your search engine ranking position for your main keyword even after writing your first guest post, so don’t waste any more time, start writing for other sites straight away! Read more…
When you’re trying to evaluate how your website or blog is doing, there are several ways to put it in numbers, and actually count the success – or failure – of your online presence. I bet the first thing you think of, of course, is traffic! Page hits! That’s what everyone thinks of, actually. But anyone that has been in online business for a while will know that it’s not just huge amounts of traffic that makes a successful webpage. This is where metrics like the Alexa Traffic Rank come in.
As the Alexa.com website states, the Alexa Traffic Rank is calculated after collecting aggregated data from Alexa Toolbar users over the period of three months. The metric combines the amount of page views and user traffic. Traffic and page views are calculated per day, and then calculated from the average of these two numbers after time. The lower the number of your rank, the better… unless you go to 0, which is actually pretty awful :P Read more…
So you’re into blogging and writing your own posts. You’ve learned the basics on how to write, how to create interesting content, what your readers want to see, Internet Marketing tips and tricks, and the like. But do you really know what it takes to perfect your content as far as proofreading and correct grammar are concerned? We can’t all hire our own proofreaders, and we don’t all have the expertise of grammar teachers.
We’ve all seen the flame wars that start under even the slightest of spelling or grammar errors. Besides the basic grammar rules that everyone must keep in mind, there are things that just plain stand out: the most important grammar rules all bloggers need to know. Read more…
When it comes to building a list, success doesn’t mean just a fixed amount of subscribers; you want the subscribers you have to open your emails and use your recommendations to better their business. If you have been gathering emails with Aweber for some time, you should have already went up in pricing tiers by now. That would be amazing if all the subscribers were responsive and active, but almost 100% that’s not the case.
There’s a great percentage of users who have never confirmed subscription, have never opened one of your emails for quite some time, or even unsubscribed from the list. All these people count towards your totals and might be a huge percentage of your list, just taking up space and increasing your costs.
Let’s see how we can fix that! :) Read more…
You’ve read all about it. Working in Internet Marketing and having an online business so you can make money from home is the most promising thing you read about on the Web these days. There’s so much information on how to make it big out there, but what should you believe? What’s genuine, and what’s a scam? What is everyone saying, and how much of it is true? We’ve picked out the greatest myths about Internet Marketing that you’ll come across and analyzed them here.
And, the list goes to twelve.
1 – Having an online business is easy.
It’s strange how everyone thinks that Internet Marketing is the easiest thing around to do: it’s just like saying that winning in offline business is just as easy.
Of course, there’s a heavy dose of luck involved (just like in everything we do!) but it’s mostly hard work and precise strategic thinking that helps you get to the top.
Points, coins, experience: gathering all these gives us a sense of satisfaction, of achievement, of gratification. It’s all call gamification. Gamification is applying game-like concepts to just about anything, especially on the Internet. Tons of productivity applications, service subscriptions, social networks and job-seeker websites and communities use gamification for entertainment and to keep users and visitors coming and interacting with the various aspects of the website or application.
