Optimizing Your Blog For Search Engines

Wednesday, May 6, 2009 12:36
Posted in category Uncategorized

Competition is fierce online, and the top places on the search result pages are the most hunted for; therefore, any blog owner who tries to make money on the Internet needs to use a whole strategy to attract the best visitors and the highest traffic. The working principle for the blog optimization for search engines is the keyword. When you start the race for SEO (search engine optimization), you already have an advantage: blogs are usually the ones to receive more traffic then other complex sites due to their highly informational content. By keywords we mean those sentences or structures that a user types in the search box of an engine.

Blogs mainly rely on articles that are regularly updated and re-freshened, so that they have something new to offer all the time. Before you write the blog content, you’ll need to make a list with all the keywords related to your domain and which are most likely to be typed in the search box by Internet users. A brain-storming session is ideal to find the best structures you need to include in the articles; keep in mind that there are some rules you may have to follow here as well.

Blogging What Is It All About?

Saturday, April 25, 2009 17:45
Posted in category Blogging

Blogging is one of the most popular Internet-related phenomenon that has incited the curiosity of millions of people all over the world; it represents a great opportunity for those who create blogs and for those who use them. Very often qualified as the trend of keeping personal diaries online, blogging is far more complex owing to the fact that every web log carries the touch of the owner’s imagination, interest and wit. The range of topics blogs deal with is incredibly wide: from politics and economics to sky diving and snorkeling. The next very important aspect after blog content is actually the interactive format of the pages that allows users to take action on the site.

Part of the history of blogging includes the very first attempts to run an account of one’s personal life, and many of the blog owners liked to call themselves journalists or diarists. In the early days of blogging around the mid-90s, people enjoyed the experience of belonging to the online community that went beyond all sorts of boundaries. This was the time when the very first combination of text, pictures and videos were included in a blog, as the most accurate way of reflecting one’s life. Sometimes, bloggers transmitted live images with the help of various portable devices, creating the so-called semi-automated blogging.

At the beginning, blogs were not individual pages, as they mainly functioned as components of larger websites; nevertheless, with the rapid development of technologies, it came into everyone’s power to create and support a personal independent web log. The only condition to enjoy a successful blogging experience is to stick to high quality content that makes any visitor return to the site and even take action on it. Creativity and innovation are probably the best ways to define the blogging experience since we can identify a true craze to be seen online.

Presently, you can find guides to creating successful blogs, since, many small business owners perceive the phenomenon as a great chance to promote products and services online. Blogs are presently part of the Internet marketing strategies anyone should use as included within online advertising campaigns; the great advantage of blogging is that it mainly targets potential customers, reducing the number of uninterested users. We could say that thanks to advertising and Internet marketing, blogging has actually become a very promising type of business.

6 Benefits To Outsourcing Social Media

Monday, March 30, 2009 18:17

So… it seems that everyone is tlaking about social media marketing these days. Just this morning the women on The View were haveing a heted discussion around Twitter. Whoopie Goldberg says she is not jumping on board, which if I don’t say so myself, would be a huge mistake on her part. She’s going to miss out on a lot of FREE publicity she could be getting. You may be hearing all this buzz around social media sites and wondering if your business should take the plunge too. The three most common fear/questions I hear are:

I don’t know how to do it.
Is this something that will really be useful to us?
Should we do this ourselves, or hire someone else to do it?

The answers to these three questions are : It’s OK, you can learn and there are others that do understand it and know how to leverage it’s power; Most definitely YES!; and lastly …It depends on your time and commitment – you really want the best of both worlds here.

The first thing you probably need to do is to get very real with your motives. Why do you want to engage in social media and what do you hope to get out of it? If you don’t have a plan or road map to where you want to go, you can get lost very quickly in the plethora of different social media sites and applications. Social media definitely requires an internal commitment from your business. You need to not only have a strategy, but also plan to invest your time and resources from within your business in order to be successful. People are social by nature and want to interact with real people, discussing real concerns and issues. If you can provide a solution to these issues or problems, then people are going to want to hear what you have to say.

Everything can be handled by a third party, however, a third party will not have the same enthusiasm or passion about what you are doing. The authenticity and immediacy of the social media experience is really important. In fact, it may be well worth your time and energy to invest in a social media point person – someone who understands your business and can make your foray into social media a top priority.

There are, however, a number of reasons to use outsourced help – setting up our accounts, design work required for banners or headers, technical assistance or content creation. This is something that if you do not engage on a daily basis can easily be put off until another day, and by then, you’ve lost the momentum gained by engaging wih the waiting world. To ahve someone in charge of this effort short circuits this procrastination, which we all know is the downfall of many business leaders today. If you’re paying someone else to do the work, odds are that the work will get done, not just sit at the bottom of your to-do list.

6 benefits that make social media outsourcing a good idea:

1. Speed: If you are new to social media – or ready to embark on a broader social media strategy – having someone who knows how is critical to get things into place quickly.
2. Training: A social media expert can teach you how to do things, set up workable systems and time tables, even automate the process, and then transition some duties back to you.
3. Reach: You’re as good as the people you know and the quicker you plug into other networks the more exposure you receive. Outsource specialists know people and they can recommend you to others who might be interested in what you are doing.
4. Expertise: Someone else has already made the mistakes – learn from that.
5. Planning: The social media expert can create a fluid network utilizing the strengh of your combined reach and network, rather than you implementing a haphazard “try-it-and-see-if-it-works” approach. This will equal greater success in the long run.
6. Branding: You want to select a social media expert with marketing and design capabilities in addition to social media know-how. This will ensure your brand integrity across al social media platforms.

Depending on the extent of your social networking knowledge, or those who you already have working for you, will really drive your decision on whether to use an outsourced expert or not. Get laser focused on how much time you have to devote to the effort each week ( schedule times to do social media just like you would schedule a meeting), make a plan, and review and revise it often.

As the owner of Excellent Marketing Group, I am here to help you be successful in whatever you do. I pride myself on always being available to my clients. if I can answer any questions you may have, please don’t hesitate to contact me at (404) 784 – 1008.

The Bloggers Bible

Wednesday, March 18, 2009 18:52
Posted in category Blogging, Websites

It is not often that I am immediately impressed by a product that someone is claiming to be the biggest and the best since sliced bread. But after researching the Bloggers Bible by Caroline Middlebrook, I am convinced this just may be one of those great products on the market today about blogging and how to set up a blog to make money. AND SHE IS OFFERING AN EMAIL VERSION OF IT FOR FREE! She takes time to walk you through each step of the process – really is amazing and easy to follow, covering the in depth questions most guru’s don’t even bother to tell you.

FREE 49-Part Course! Click here to view more details
You can either sign up to receive the FREE 12 Module – 49 Lesson Course via email for free, or jump right in with the Fast Tract Course which you download immediately.

Step-by-Step Structure

The course is designed to teach you how to make money blogging in an easy step-by-step manner. You get the first stuff first and each lesson builds on the previous. Caroline quickly cover essential concepts so that you can cover all the bases and then come back to important ideas with more advanced strategies that you can implement once you’ve built a solid foundation.

Profit-Focus

This is a course that teaches you how to make MONEY blogging, not just about building a pretty hobby blog. This goal is ingrained throughout the entire course from the very first lesson. This avoids the trap that many bloggers fall into when they spend months building a popular blog only to make $0 profits. She made this mistake at the beginning of her blogging career too – but you can learn from her mistakes and build a profitable blog from the outset.

Real HOW-TO, no fluff!

This course excludes much of the theoretical waffle that you find in so many information products these days. She’ll tell you what you need to know and then show you exactly what you need to do to put it into practice. This is an actionable course.

Free Action Guide

A bonus that is included with the Fast Track version which subscribers of the free lessons do not get is an easy-printable action plan. This is a check list showing you a quick recap of exactly what to do after each lesson including those activities which you will need to introduce on an on-going basis. This will make it very easy for you to not only consume the information but to actually TAKE ACTION with it. After all, knowledge without action is quite useless!

Free Bonus Lessons

The Fast Track version now has 4 bonus lessons that are not available in the email series. This brings the total up to 53 lessons and lots more bonus lessons are planned!

FREE 49-Part Course! Click here to view more details


If You Purchase The Fast Tract Version, I Guarantee You’ll Make Your Money Back FAST!

I keep emphasizing this point – this course is designed to teach you how to actually make money blogging and build a blog that is bringing in far more than the cost of the course each and every month! Caroline guarantees you that if you implement the action steps in this course, then you will have earned back the cost of the course (hopefully a lot more!) within 3 months. If you haven’t, she’ll refund you the difference!

Here’s what you get:

The Bloggers Bible Course Curriculum

The course is split into 49 self contained lessons organized into 12 core modules. These are as follows:

Module 1 – Introduction (5 lessons)


The introductory lessons discuss how to select a topic and direction for your blog, how to clearly define your goals, conduct some essential blog planning and prepare an initial post repository. I also give you a brief introduction to SEO as a foundation for later lessons.

Module 2 – Technical Setup (6 lessons)

The technical lessons cover everything you need to know to get your actual blog built. Everything from hosting to WordPress (the software of choice for blogging!), RSS feeds, stats tracking, contact forms, archive pages and some other technicalities. I also discuss the ‘launch’ process of your new blog in this module.

Module 3 – Basic Content (3 lessons)


Content is the backbone of any successful blog and although it can be a large subject, in this module I give you just the essential information to create some really solid content that you can begin to monetize without bogging you down in details that can be left until later.

Module 4 – Basic Monetization (5 lessons)


As this course is designed to enable you to make money blogging, we want to start monetization as quickly as possible. In this module I teach you how to effectively implement some of the easier strategies such as contextual advertising and affiliate marketing. These strategies can be implemented from the beginning and allow you to start generating an income as soon as the traffic starts to trickle in.

Module 5 – Traffic (5 lessons)


No traffic = no profits! This module introduces the topic of traffic with strategies can be implemented from the outset. I also discuss how to properly analyse your blog traffic so that you can make tweaks that boost it in the future.

Don’t wait!  Check it out for yourself for free!

Module 6 – Basic Link Building (3 lessons)


Another source of traffic is search engine traffic but this takes longer to build because it is entirely driven by the ability of your blog to rank highly for traffic-generating keywords. This in turn requires backlinks and so in this module I give you a few easy link building methods that you can begin to put to work straight away.

Module 7 – Social Media (6 lessons)

The final traffic source that I discuss (traffic is SO important!) is Social Media which is a huge subject. In this module I don’t try to cover it ALL – I just focus on those specific sites that have proven their ability to drive literally thousands of visitors and links to even a brand new blog.

Module 8 – Readership (2 lessons)

Building a profitable blog implies that you sell stuff to your readers. If you want that to happen you have to provide them with excellent value, look after them and nurture them. This module shows you how to do just that!

Module 9 – Maintenance (1 lesson)

Just like a car, a blog needs an occasional bit of maintenance work done. Before we dive into the advanced topics, I give you a quick lesson on essential blog maintenance to keep everything running in top condition.

Module 10 – Advanced Content (4 lessons)

There are millions of new blogs created every year. I firmy believe that there is always room for more blogs but if you are in a crowded niche then you need to stand out from the crowd – be different, be BETTER than the rest. You’re already creating good content but now that we’ve got all the essentials down its time to ramp up our efforts and create some truly outstanding content!

Module 11 – Advanced Monetization (6 lessons)

Standard monetization strategies like those in module 4 often have a certain cap to them. There’s only so much you can earn on a per visitor basis and this won’t be as high as you might like. However, if you are prepared to put in some extra effort I’ll give you some specific instructions for transforming your blog into a fully-blown business. Product creation, freebie marketing, membership sites, list building and more are all taught in this module.

Module 12 – Advanced Link Building (3 lessons)

Every blog post we write is an opportunity to increase our search engine traffic but this is only going to happen if we out-rank our competitors which is why link building is so important. This final module teaches you three specific strategies for building quality links – if you’re prepared to put the work in!

Getting Quality Content For Your Blog

Tuesday, March 17, 2009 22:56
Posted in category Blogging, Websites

All Internet marketing guides stress the importance of using only quality content for the blog pages, yet, the question remains: how can one decide which is good content and which not? I simply suggest that we start from the very nature of the blog: a highly informational and personal site which tackles with subjects in a specific domain. Hence, when designing the blog, don’t make it too complex, stick to the simple structures that allow users to perform actions easily on the page. The frame should also be very simple and the eventual ads and links need to naturally blend in the content of the blog as such. Web design provides the great advantage of using similar fonts and formats, so that only some elements on the page should stand out.

Furthermore, you may have learned by now that you need to create the site content around some high-in-demand keywords that users type in the search box of the engine. The more the keywords, the higher the chances to have your blog appear in the first result pages. However, many bloggers understand keyword density the wrong way. The blog content should naturally include the keywords in an easy-to-read kind of way; a keyword density that goes higher than 2 or 3% could make the articles less appealing to the reader.

There are some tips you may consider when creating quality content for a blog. First of all, regardless of the domain and the target audience, it should be reader-friendly and even reader-oriented if it be the case. This means that even when you deal with a scientific topic, you can still keep the reader’s attention vivid since not everybody who visits your blog has a professional cultural background. Write everything in short or medium-sized paragraphs so that the information naturally flows without being hard to track in case of an interruption.

Statistics show that blogs that include links in the very article content are more successful than those who present links at the bottom of the page for instance. Inserted links allow the reader to get a puzzle-explanation of a concept or provide the opportunity to show interest for specific products or services. Furthermore, the blogs that make a happy combination of written content, pictures and videos are considered a lot more appealing to the average Internet user, and thus receive a lot more traffic. The key to being successful within the blogging system is definitely the continuous adaptation to the requests of the market.
