My Post Penguin Free Blog, Linking Strategies and On Page SEO

post penguin seoPost Penguin SEO May Be Easier Than Ever

OK guys, I’m back and I’m sort of giggling all the way to the bank right now. Ever since the dreaded Penguin update came out I’ve been steadily working at creating some new and different blogs. Initially, I thought that creating the blogs and getting the links properly built up and getting the “new” worn off of the sites was going to take a few weeks or maybe even a couple of months…but…

…I’ve been able to rank on the first page of Google for key phrases within minutes of creating and publishing blog posts. The weird thing? Well, the weird thing is that I’ve been able to rank – in one case within 45 minutes or less – with a FREE blog from blogger.com – hmm, Google keeping it in the family I guess.

Ranking Well With Free Blogs

So what is my method for creating these free blogs and more importantly, ranking well with them? While I must admit that I am still testing the different marketing strategies and techniques – I’m refining what I’ve always done – I can tell you that what I am finding so far is that exact match URL’s are skyrocketing to the top of the Google SERP’s.

Obviously, Google is back to rewarding those of us with exact matched domains names.

Titles and Other Areas to Focus Your SEO Efforts

Another area I am really seeing some big time search engine love is with titles. I am primarily referring to titles of blogs as well as titles of blog posts. I started a free blog the other day – znzonesuccess.blogspot.com – and wrote an article titled “The ZNZ One Program” and it is residing on the first page results.

Now you folks that have been paying attention to my videos and to what it is that I specifically do after each and every post, know some of the methods that I use to rank well on the first page of Google. It seems that I went a little overboard with this particular blog, but that’s OK too – I’ll have this blog ranking well again in a few weeks or months, but it will be back.

So what am I doing now with these simple and free blogs from blogger to rank them so well? First, let’s look at the “on-page” SEO.

I am not using SEOpressor any longer. While I think this was excellent software, I’m trying to tone down the highly optimization of my sites and opting more for a more “gentle” optimizing of the site and pages. As mentioned above, you want to make sure that you titles – both of your blog and your posts – contain the keyword or key phrase you are looking to rank for.

Create a Natural Flow

The next thing you need to be looking at is the density of your keyword within the body of the article. I still believe this needs to be around 2%, but with that said, it is very important that you do not give up the natural flow of writing to make sure that your keyword is in the body of the text or even within the sub-titles – the h1, h2 and h3 tags. I would even put some additional subheadings that DO NOT contain the key phrase.

Images still seem to give you some link juice, but don’t have 3 or four images that all point back to your key phrase in the alt text. Mix it up. Make sure that one or two are optimized, but that’s about it.

Slow and Steady Link Building

In terms of backlinks and link building, I would probably start off slower here than anything else I have done. This site was highly optimized for “znz one,” “znz big cash” and “online payday system” and it ranks of the 2nd and 3rd pages now where it once resided in the #1 position for all three key phrases. This, I believe, was primarily due to the speed at which these links were developed rather than the location from where the links came from.

While you want to make sure that your links are coming from legitimate websites, I believe that a natural flow is more important as well as a mixture of websites. You want a high percentage of your links coming from the social media and community sites rather than all of them coming from blog directories.

My linking strategy now is to make sure that my linking comes in a more natural looking way – less than 30 or so a day – from many different locations. For example, I use ping.fm for social bookmarking and have several social sites attached to this tool. I am also still using socialmonkee.com with good results, but I am making sure that the hundred links or so that I get from them (I have a premium account) come over at least a ten day period.

Still Using Article Submission Tools

I still use – and get very good results by the way – my Unique Article Wizard, which is a blog directory, but I limit the amount of blogs my articles are posted on to ten or fifteen per day. I opt for a slow “trickle” of links rather than blasting out 30 or 50 (or more) per day.

Manually I am posting more on high PR sites like ezinearticles.com, articlesnatch (no follow links), and others. I am also building squidoo lenses for that whole PR 7 link juice.

So Far, So Good

These methods, along with writing actively on my blogs, seem to be working very well. Within days I was able to rank my new sites (something I haven’t been able to do in a long time) on the first page of the Google SERP’s. These sites are optimized for specific key phrases like “znz one info” and “znz one success” or “the znz one program” and they have done pretty well very quickly.

Below I have a video showing folks the 3 must do actions after writing my blog post. Pretty much the same strategy as before, but without much else. Just using these simple strategies allowed me to rank very quickly – within minutes in one case – and very well (in the top 5).

No Guarantees

Look, I’m not guaranteeing anything at all at this point, but what I can tell you is that I have used and am using these techniques and am finding very good results so for. Admittedly I haven’t gone after more competitive key phrases, that will be documented in my next efforts, but I have seen a spike in my income.

While my opt ins have decreased slightly, because I am more focused on generating highly targeted leads – my conversion rates have doubled. Hmm, might want to start working on the whole conversion thing a little bit more!

No Exact Formula

I don’t know if anyone will ever be able to tell us marketers exactly what to do to rank well every single time for every single key phrase – Google sure doesn’t want people to crack this code of theirs – but I can tell you that with a little bit of experimentation we are able to find and develop techniques, methods and strategies that will help us rank better and ultimately drive a lot of traffic to our programs and websites.

Over-Optimized For My Primary Programs ZNZ One and Big Cash

znz one and znz big cash

Incredulity!

OK, the Penguin update has come and gone and apparently this site was W-A-Y to optimized for Google’s liking and I am now residing on the 3rd page for many of the key phrases that I was, well, optimized for.

The irony is that I actually have some relatively decent information on this site regarding the zip nada zilch programs znz one and znz big cash. These are the programs that I was promoting for the most part so it sort of made sense that I put that information here on this blog, didn’t it?

OH, ALMOST FORGOT – IF YOU WANT TO GET INVOLVED WITH ME IN THE ZNZ ONE OR ZNZ BIG CASH PROGRAM YOU CAN CLICK HERE! I WILL REBATE YOU $30 JUST FOR COMPLETING THE OFFERS!

I know what Google is trying to do and I can’t say I completely am innocent in the terms that they are trying to spell out, but what has me frazzled – yep, said frazzled – is that the whole reason for this stuff is to… provide more relevant websites within the higher rankings of Google??? Where is that happening at now I wonder? Hmm.

So, here is yet another video related to my znz one and znz big cash programs. Hope you enjoy!

Over Optimization Was Cool, Now It’s Kickin’ My Butt!

A Spankin’ From Google

OK, so we got the Google slap…what’s next. Well, over the next few weeks you are sure to see me changing up a whole bunch of stuff! (Funny how fast you can learn about “good” seo vs. “bad” seo!)

I never really did any black hat stuff for Make Money Online Anywhere, well not black hat seo techniques like we used to think of as black hat anyway. The problem for me, and I’m pretty sure Google is still figuring out exactly what they are wanting to do here, is that my linking techniques seem to be in the realm of “we don’t like that” for Google.

I’ve used Unique Article Wizard almost the entire time I have been online and it was a blog network that served me very well for quite some time. I trained people how to rank well by using UAW and, as mentioned, used it exclusively to rank my own blogs.

About mid-March however, I noticed that UAW wasn’t “working” quite as well as it had been – I just wasn’t seeing the results I was used to. And then last week I saw a ton of sites drop from the first page of Google for many key phrases. Even my own blog post which had ranked #1 for months for the term “znz one,” wasn’t in the same galaxy.

I was still ranking very well for “znz one,” – still at the #1 position – but with an entirely different blog post. Weird. That’s the term us non-techie types use anyway.

The Day the SEO Music Died?

Yesterday, “Dark” Tuesday I will call it, I saw my site go bye-bye from the glorious position 1 and prestigious first page. It’s hanging around like that third person on a date somewhere on the second page. I’m not messing with it until next week, let’s just see what Good old Google does. Who knows, I might (yeah, right) hit #1 again.

The main problem right now is I’m a bit clueless as to how to start ranking well again, but here is a hint: the sites that weren’t ranking so well for me before, are now doing pretty well. Ironically, these are the same sites that I didn’t do a whole lot with. I basically started them and then let them sit in cyberspace “seasoning,” getting that domain up past a few months.

So, checking with the SEOmoz gang (seomoz.org – check out this video! http://www.seomoz.org/blog/6-changes-every-seo-should-make-before-the-over-optimization-penalty-hits-whiteboard-friday), I must reluctantly admit that this site was hard-core optimized for some terms (like znz one for instance) and due to that over-optimization my stuff is draggin’. Oh well – back to the drawing board.

I’m sort of wondering at this point if we even need to put in keywords or key phrases into our seo plugins on our WordPress blogs. Who knows. I’m sure I’ll be checking things out and I will be passing on what I find.

SEO Secret Re-learned: Create Good Solid Content For Humans

For now my best advice for everyone out there trying to get that blog up and running is to write good content that people can use. Create value on your blog and stop relying on good rankings for traffic. There are many, many, many different ways to get a lot of traffic to the site – that’s what I’ll be writing about very soon!

How To Make Easy Money Online In 3 Steps

how to make easy money online

Learning how to make easy money online is not difficult at all once you learn how the process works – and it is a process. Like all processes there is a certain amount of time that this will take and a learning curve that you must get through to even get to the point where you are starting to understand the process.

How to Make Easy Money Online With Simple Programs

I like to train people. I work with people marketing different programs and I help folks getting involved with the ZNZ One and ZNZ Big Cash programs. All of these program – and I don’t care which one it is – require that folks learn how to properly and effectively promote and market these opportunities BEFORE you start to make ANY money.

Anyone With The Right Training Can Learn

I’ve decided to use the ZNZ programs as an example in this post to show folks how to make easy money online utilizing 3 steps that just about anyone can follow.

Step 1 – To learn how to make easy money online, the first thing you need to do with any program – other than join it – is to search out and find who is your market audience. You can do this through different methods, but my favorite is by doing a little quick keyword and key phrase research.

Online people will go to Google or some other search engine and type out EXACTLY what it is that they want to learn more about including online money making opportunities. If you can learn how to find these phrases and how to divert some of those people looking for a certain term then the next step is designing a system or content to place in front of that crowd.

For example. If someone wanted to learn how to make easy money online they could go to Google and type in the phrase “how to make easy money online.” They can then look at the results and read the information provided on some of the sites. You can also do this within ezinearticles.com or youtube.com to find even more information.

So your job initially is to find these groups of people that are looking for specific information to help solve a problem.

Step 2 – The second part of learning how to make easy money online is to find an opportunity, program or create content that these folks are looking for and put this information in front of them as they continue down their path of looking for information.

You can do this by posting links to your programs or writing articles about this information and inserting links to your information or programs. I do a lot of blogging and have many different blogs that I write on. I also write articles that I syndicate and this sends targeted traffic (targeted meaning that these are folks looking for these specific terms related to my niche) to my sites.

Once on the sites, visitors can browse through the information, click on banner ads, read my blog posts and submit to different offers such as some type of training or newsletter. Once this is done, this person moves from visitor to prospect.

Step 3 – Understanding how to make easy money online would not be complete without learning about the role and importance of the auto-responder. In step three we are talking about making contact. You can do this either by phone, email or both.

Many times I will send a video and other times I will call. Because I get a lot of calls during the day and I am pretty busy with the blogs I will let my auto-responder do the selling, so it is extremely important that I set up these emails just so…

This 3rd step really is about selling the program or opportunity. The key to high conversion rates, in my opinion, is making sure that the group that ultimately opts into your program is looking for a program like you have to join. Eventually you will probably have to speak to a real person, but I would at least wait until this point and time. After all, these folks have gone through the sales funnel process and you should be speaking with folks that are more than interested in what you have. Makes “selling” a whole lot easier!

Good SEO or Spam?

good seo or spamSpam Alert? Not Quite, but Close!

I’ve got to admit it – I’m a sucker for keyword research and trying to get a ton of visitors to my site using (and abusing) on page seo tactics and the question that has been raised, or the criticism rather, is some of this good seo or spam? Not that this stuff is black hat or anything, but it just doesn’t really make sense a lot of the time. I have to admit, after looking at it and in that much detail, it doesn’t look like great seo.

I had a friend remind of that this weekend…someone I really respect and maybe some of you that actually read this blog wouldn’t mind looking up. His name is Marshall and he is a website seo professional and he wasn’t shy at all about helping me “identify” a problem article that I had…no, he’s not a shy guy.

Anyway, Marshall not only provided me with some more than adequate feedback and a good verbal lashing about keyword stuffing and spamming (Thanks again Marshall!), but his comments also made me realize that I have gotten off of the path that I laid out for this particular blog.

Forgetting the Mission

You see, Make Money Online Anywhere, was suppose to be a blog about promoting different ways that you could generate an income online. I wasn’t necessarily going to focus on one way or another, but as many different ways as I could figure out and test. I then wanted to relate my findings back to you in an effort to help people – especially newbies coming online to make a buck – find something that would work.

What has happened is that the ZNZ programs for me have just exploded and I have been able to make a pretty good income from just these programs. Oh I also earn a decent wage from Google every month for the adsense on my sites and additional monies from other companies as well, but the ZNZ One and Big Cash programs just sort of took off, so I spent a bit of time running with them so to speak.

Now it is the empower network that I am working on and true to the “90 day rule” that I push so hard, it looks like the Empower Network is actually going to start paying off! (Click on the Banner below for more info!)

A Good Rule of Thumb

Anyway, once again I am back to my “old” ways and some of my old blogging rules which I started out with a while back! My main rule – the 4:1 prose to technical ratio – is going to be adhered to more than ever. I actually sort of reversed it and now I’m bringing it back.

What is that 4:1 rule? It’s quite simple really – and makes more sense by the way – you write from the heart, from your own experiences and just off of the top of your head – still relating to your niche market and readers – but you DO NOT focus on keywords/key phrases. What you need to focus on mainly – and this is especially for blogging more than anything else – is on writing quality content for your human readers.

I sort of forgot about all of this, I sort of got to the point of doing everything for traffic no matter the cost and I almost blew it!

You do still want to do your keyword research and write on topics that are around your niche, but you don’t want to forget that your readers are human and that you should write for them and not the web crawlers from Google or anyone (anything?) else.

So once again, Thank you Marshall! For bringing this to my attention, I salute you! (You’ll just have to imagine that whole AC/DC cannon explosion thing)….until I throw it on a video that is!
