Squidoo Lens is Tough to Crack

Squidoo Lens is Tough to Crack

 Before I get right into it today let me just explain to you a few thoughts about Google, linking, and how to rank in the search engines online. Pretty much the name of the game even in spite of the Google Panda updates is still about linking and link popularity. That is still ultimately the largest most prominent feature that is going to get you ranked in the search engines.

Now there are right ways and wrong ways about going about getting these links, which links are good, which links are bad, how many you can add over a period of time, relevancy, popularity, etc. If you are brand new to the SEO game it can seem overwhelming at first. But it really isn’t so complicated when you understand the basics of it and you have someone who isn’t some teched out alien trying to explain it to you after they’ve had way too much Starbucks and way too little sleep.

In fact that’s why we put the SEO guide up on the website to make all that SEO stuff friendly and down to earth in a one stop SEO resource stop. If you haven’t checked it out yet you really should. Leave me your thoughts when you do I’d love to hear what people think of the new changes.

But anyway back to what I was saying… Basically the thinking has always been the more sites that link to you the better. It’s a pretty simple concept really. And there have been and there still are excellent ways to get links to you site to build that popularity and rank online.

Some of the best strategies have included:

  1. Article Marketing
  2. Web 2.0 Link Building
  3. Social Bookmarking
  4. Forum Backlinks
  5. Writing Press Releases

They are still probably the best and most powerful ways to build links to your site and increase your search engine rankings if done properly. And that is really the key. My point is that doing it right has become a little harder than it once was when not so long ago you could bombard article directories with high page ranks all across the web with poorly spun articles and reap awesome results for it.

Those kinds of tactics today will get your content impounded and your account suspended today if you are not careful. There are still auto-submission directories out there that you can plaster but they don’t command near the page rank and respect they once did when it comes to the search engines, and Google has become very good at identifying duplicate content (articles created from the same content and spun into variations) identifying it as such and not giving you credit for the links.

Which really brings me to my point today which is just how crafty the web is at identifying duplicate and spun content. Tonight I was posting content to several of the best Web 2.0 sites with a brand new spun article that I only intend to use on 10 or so of the best Web 2.0 sites. I had spun the article and done a lot of hands on work to make it unique…

Let me digress here a minute and tell you that Web 2.0 sites are still awesome to get backlinks from if you do it correctly…

So anyway, here I am submitting this content to these top 10 or so sites and before I am done I have messages from Squidoo that I’ve got duplicate content and need to address it or it will be taken off their site! We’re talking about less than an hour or so and I haven’t even finished uploading the last of the batch of these largely handspun articles!

So my point is this… if a Squidoo lens is that tough to crack, then how much tougher is Google going to be to fool? Makes a person seriously consider the consequences doesn’t it?

Come check out the SEO online tab at http://daveschlueteronline.com/seo-online/   and get some further training on these subjects today. Also be sure to opt in for some deeper training and join the mailing list. You’ll move that much closer to my inner circle and some secret strategies to overcome the some of the objections to getting ranked and driving traffic.

As a bonus here are probably all the top web2.0 websites for creating quality backlinks. Write some content, link to your website within the content and publish it on these sites. It’s easy to do after you register and it will be a huge boost for your content and site.

So what is Pinterest Marketing then:

• Pinterest is a visual sharing site that allows you to share your interest and in the interests of others visually through pictures, videos, etc.

• It’s similar to Facebook only in a visual format. So instead of using text to convey our message, with Pinterest you are pinning up visual images, videos, etc. to communicate messages with.

 

Why use Pinterest Marketing for MLM then:

When you take the time to examine the Alexa data on this site you’ll quickly realize you have to come up with a strategy to start utilizing this site as soon as possible for your marketing success.

The Pinterest web site has an Alexa page rank of 6 so it is a powerful authority site, and you want backlinks from content on this authority site to point to your blog. You want to position yourself to piggyback off some of that killer popularity. That’s the quality type link you want pointing toward your pages and your content for search rankings.

Not only that but this site has enjoyed a Popularity Rank of 16 overall for the U.S.A. and has enjoyed a growth rate of 260.7 %! So are you now beginning to see the light?

 

So how does it Work then:

• Users “Pin” (post) content to their Pinterest Site.

• Their posts are organized on a theme based page called a “Pinboard” where like type content based on a particular interest or theme is organized for display.

• You are able to pin your own content or “repin” other people’s pins (content) to the pinboards you create.

• Pin it Button- a button that you can place on your site to make pining content to pinterest simple and easily.

But even more important than this is the fact that content posted from your site to Pinterst using the pin it button create automatic backlinks to your page. That’s an intant backlink generator to a U.S. popularity 16, Alexa Rank 6, Authority site. Can you say SEO LOVE?

What’s the deal with Anchor Text…

If you want top rankings for your content and websites you’ll need to be paying very close attention to the anchor text you use.

Anchor text is a critical portion of your SEO strategy and is critical for you to understand how to get the most bangs for your buck. If you are doing a lot of blog marketing and article marketing (and you should be) you want to get the most out of all your carefully crafted effort right?

Well if you are not taking advantage of anchor text you are missing out on a huge piece of the puzzle.

So what is anchor text:

Anchor text is the word text you use when you create a link to a website. I’m not talking about the URL here though that can be used also. What I am talking about is a text link. It is specific text that you have turned into a link in a piece of content.  Another common word for anchor text is what is called a “hyperlink.” It’s really nothing more than a word or phrase that links to another website.

Search engines look at these anchor text links that point to your site from other places on the web determine what that text is about and then rank your content as it pertains to that term. Whatever you use as anchor text linking back to your site or content is what you are telling Google your content is about.  Google looks at these links then checks your content to see if it is relevant and then begins ranking you for it.

So it goes almost without mentioning that if you want to rank higher for a specific keyword, then use it in your anchor text back-linking strategy. Just be sure not to overdo it and arouse the suspicious of the search engines. Search engines want everything to be a level playing field for everyone and they abhor SEO manipulations, so don’t get caught with your hands in the cookie jar so to speak.

The relevancy of the anchor text to your content on your page and on the page the link came from are also important mitigating factors as well. To learn more about relevancy and the principles that drive traffic and search engine rankings on the internet opt in for The 8 Day MLM Traffic and Business Video Seminar on my blog.

There are four principle types or classes of anchor text and each provides your content with a different level of value and each needs to be taken into account in formulating your anchor text strategy.

 

Here are the four Anchor Text types and their relative Value:

  • ”Exact Match” Text Anchor (Gold)
  • ”Broad Match” Anchor Text (Silver)
  • ”Commonly Match” Anchor Text (Bronze)
  • ”URL Anchor Text” (Runner up)

 

Exact Key Word Anchor Text links use the exact keywords you want to rank for in the search engines for that specific content. If you want to rank for a specific term then use that text as your link to the specific content. It’s rather simple really.

Broad Match Anchor Text is relevant anchor text but it is not as specific as the number one term you want to rank for. For example: If you wanted to rank for MLM Tips and that would be your “Exact Match” term, then what other terms are related that get the same type traffic that you would benefit from as well? Terms like MLM help, MLM advice, Network Marketing advice, etc. This is the essence of a broad match term.

Common used anchor text includes “click here”, “here”, “website” etc. They are not thrilling terms and won’t get fired up to rank for these terms but they have their place never the less in keeping your link strategy looking natural and not manipulated by SEO strategies.

This is important because you don’t want to attract undue attention from the search engines by overpowering your link blueprint with unnatural SEO manipulated fingerprints that spell trouble for you.

Plain old URL anchor text type is the last anchor text type, and this  is really nothing more than a URL to link to your website with i.e. http://website.com, no anchor text.

So Why Does all This Matter So Much:

Because in this day and age there isn’t a way to rank well for any highly competitive keywords without heavy link building involved. Indeed there are ways to over-rev this engine and get you faster rankings by ignoring the redline on the primary keyword tach, but it comes with a price. Anchor text leaves the biggest footprint for Google to find and penalize you for if you are not smart about things.

So you must use a wide variety of anchor text types in a natural looking ratio for Google to pass over your site without you eventually getting spanked.

My credible expert mentors suggest the following ratio for lasting search engine positions and rank:

■50% Primary Keyword Anchor Text

 ■30% Relevant Keywords Anchor Text

 ■10% Generic (click here, website etc.) Keywords

 ■10% URL No Anchor Text

 

This should give you enough exact keyword anchor text gas to get you the rankings you desire without blowing your search engine up.

Tag and Ping for MLM Blog Success

Tag and Ping,Social Bookmarking, etc the positive effects of social bookmarking for MLM blog success and  for other web sites are outstanding. Social bookmarking can introduce the sites that you own or you like to others with the right targeted interests and tastes,it can drive traffic to your site, and create valuable backlinks to your content like flies swarm to stink.

What is Tag and Ping:

Basically it is a powerful strategy employing bookmarking to acquire traffic and backlinks to your site. And so naturally to understand this strategy you first have to have a working knowledge of what bookmarking is.

Bookmarking is:

  • Bookmarking is the collective act of sharing links (aka tags) and resources by the internet community.
  • Social Bookmarking sites include Technorati, Furl, Deli.icio.us, Flickr, and 100’s more.

 

  1. Users are controlling the flow of traffic and backlinks more and more through the use of these sites and their applications.
  2. Social Bookmarking in general has a viral traffic generating effect.

Example:

For instance if you were to go and register for a Del.icio.us account you would have access to your own page where you can store bookmarks (your links) to your favorite internet sites and resources. What’s interesting to note, is when you do this this bookmark also get syndicated (it gets posted elsewhere as well). It will appear on one of Del.icio.us’ tag pages.

All other Del.icio.us users who see this tag page may then check out your links and decide whether they want to add it to their pages which will increase the popularity of that specific bookmark causing it to rank and post higher.

The higher it ranks in popularity the greater the chance others will see, use, and adapt this bookmark as their own. Such is the viral nature of bookmarks. As long as your content that you are linking to is bookmark worthy, your links should increase in popularity in a viral fashion. Your MLM blog traffic goes through the roof as a result.

Tags are:

Tags… (once again we are using the Del.icio.us site as our example) are really nothing more than a keyword you assign to the link. It is a way to organize your links and keep track of them.

For example if you had links about gardening and links about cooking you could organize all your gardening links by assigning them the tag “gardening” and your cooking links the tag “cooking” all your links for each subject would be organized and found under the accompanying tag name. So if you clicked the tag “cooking” in your account then all the links that have to do with cooking come up. It’s pretty simple really.

Tag and Ping with your Blog:

With your WordPress Blog you will create tags for your posts. A tag is really nothing more than a specially formatted link that you place in your blog. After you tag your posts and post them on your blog you want to ping the social bookmark sites.

A ping is basically a short instruction that is sent out from your blog and tells a site such as a search engine or a social bookmark index site like Technorati, Icerocket, etc. to come to your site and check out your content crawl through your site find the tags index them and update their sites. In other word a computer spiders you site finds your tags and content and then updates the tag pages on the site for their users to see and use.

It’s another instant back link from an authority site of valued popularity ranking. Because these bookmarking sites are so popular and because they offer such excellent user data about sites, keywords, tags, and their popularity, the big search engines regularly spider these social bookmark sites for data. When they do they find links to your sites and follow them. Are you starting to see the power here?

Setting up Your Ping List:

To set up a WordPress ping list, go to “Settings”, and then click “Writing.” Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see an “Update Services” box that will allow you to add your ping list. You will want to add all of the social bookmark sites that accept and that crawl blog posts.

 

http://rpc.icerocket.com:10080/

http://rpc.technorati.com/rpc/ping

 

You can create all your tag URLs by hand but why bother. If you are using WordPress and you should be, your blog to do this automatically for you. You want to go to your plugins and get SimpleTags. SimpleTags allows you to easily generate Technorati tags that work for both Tecnorati and Icerocket.

Setting up Tag and Ping:

Do some keyword research or even some tag research on some of the social bookmark sites and find words about your website pages and contents that will make for good tagging and pinging and gain you the greatest MLM Blog success.

 

This is how to tag and ping in WordPress:

1. Create your content.

 2. Add relevant “tags” at the end of your blog post with simple tags.

 3. Publish your blog post.

 4. Ping social bookmarking sites. Your blogs ping list does this automatically or you can use www.pingdevice.com

 5. When you have finished, the social bookmarking sites will then crawl your blog post and index it under the tags that you have specified. Social bookmarking sites are heavily spidered, so your pages will be quickly spidered by the major search engines simply by being present in the index.

 

Making Sure that Technorati and Icerocket Pick Up Your Tags:

  • You will need to register your blog with Icerocket and Technorati go to their websites and regester.
