Directory Submissions

Directory Submissions

Submit Your Site to Key Directories! A link from a directory will help your ranking — and get you traffic. A directory is not a search engine. Rather, it is a hierarchical listing of sites sorted according to category and subcategory. Be sure to list your site in the free Open Directory Project (www.dmoz.com), overseen by overworked volunteer editors. But if you don’t get listed right away, don’t be impatient and resubmit, or you’ll go to the end of the queue. A link in this directory will help you a lot. Yahoo! Directory (dir.yahoo.com) is another important directory. Real humans read each submission, so be careful to follow the instructions given. Hint: Use somewhat less than the maximum number of characters allowable, so you don’t have wordy text that will tempt the Yahoo! editor to begin chopping. Yahoo! Directory Submit (ecom.yahoo.com/dir/submit/intro/) requires a $299 annual recurring fee to have your site considered for inclusion within seven business days. Other paid business directories that might help are About.com and Business.com. Also Submit Your Site to Trade Organization Sites and Specialized Directories. Some directories focused on particular industries, such as education or finance. You probably belong to various trade associations that feature member directories. Ask for a link. Even if you have to pay something for a link from the organization, it may help boost your PageRank. Marginal directories, however, come and go very quickly, making it hard to keep up, so don’t try to be exhaustive here. Beware of directories that solicit you for “upgraded listings.” Unless a directory is widely used in your field, a premium ad is a waste...
Advanced Twitter Traffic

Advanced Twitter Traffic

The notes below have been taken from a variety of “guru” seminars as well as personal experience. Two of the most influential for me have been Jeff Johnson’s Traffic Voodoo “Twitter Blog Bounce” and Oli Tee’s Zero Down Traffic. Keep In Mind: Twitter is up to 13x more viral than Facebook Use Twitter to follow people in your marketplace Blog post on site, notify Twitter followers automatically ASK them to Facebook-“like” and re-Tweet message Always TELL THEM what to do, e.g. “please help us spread the word by Twitter” Make sure you check out www.linksalpha.com YouTube will auto-notify Twitter Get Twitter followers to your webinar Get Twitter followers to your optin forms to capture them on email followups Google tracks unique visitors to website Tweet about your videos on YouTube Tweet about your articles on other sites Tweet about your Facebook pages Tweet about hot current topics so you can show up quickly in Google’s iUpdate section Tweets are tracked indexed and published by thousands of other websites including Google Google updates (sidebar) shows you all the latest updates – from Twitter, Facebook, etc Pick a hot topic that applies to your market – or figure out a way how it relates to your niche For example, tweet about a famous star but also intermix that with tweets about your site – soon the followers of the star will notice your site Setting up the foundations The “social media wheel” method using Twitter.

Twitter Traffic Basics

Twitter Traffic Basics

The challenge is to cutting through the clutter and quite a lot of work. This method is quite new and not many people are aware of Twitter’s marketing power – even if it does seem pretty obvious that “something” should be possible to achieve here…! Once you’ve set up your Twitter account, you should also sign up to a link cloaking service like Bit.ly (this is because you can’t use long URLs in Twitter messages, and Bit.ly allows you to shorten them greatly). But the extra sign ups don’t end there. The thing to do with Twitter is to build followers and communicate with them effectively through the Direct Messaging system. EverGold is said to be a perfect (free) tool to help you do that. You should also sign up to a tweet scheduling site like tWaitter – and a service called TwitterFeed (to combine Twitter with RSS feeds). As you organize and post your messages, your next job is to get as many followers as you can. You do this by following others first. Use SearchTwitter to help you target your “ideal” prospects – people who are currently talking about the things you are marketing! You can also hook yourself up to TwEllow (a kind of Twitter Yellow Pages). Once you get around 200-300 followers (which will take only a couple of days if you apply yourself well), you can now continue doing the same manually (which gives you HIGHER QUALITY contacts), or your can automate the process (lower quality, but much bigger volume). If you pick the latter method, try Buzzom which is the highest rated tool...

All of the techniques below take a little doing and some planning. Most are not very difficult at all, but they’re a bit more “advanced” than the basic methods shown elsewhere on this site. Here’s an overview of all the key methodologies… Basic Methods Medium Advanced Writing Swapping Paying NOTE: HUGELY IMPORTANT! We have now started using an advanced SEO tool which takes care of many of the above techniques – and much more. It’s not a bargain basement product to be sure, but it’s worth every penny. We highly recommend it. In fact, we were BLOWN AWAY by how powerful this software is. There is nothing else that comes close to this one out there and this is the CLOSEST you’ll ever come to a “guarantee” of success online. I’m talking about Axandra’s IBP Business SEO Software. “Awesome” doesn’t begin to describe it. If you REALLY want to make money online, this is precisely THE shortcut you were looking for! I’ve spent over $5k last year on guru systems, training courses, SEO software, submitters, PPCs and so on.  For a mere fraction of that, I should have taken IBP – and I KNOW I would have been much further much quicker!
