Hi there… Yeah… Ivana is here and I’ve got to say, I am REALLY… MAD!!! Steam is coming out of my ears… And the reason you wonder? Because 90% of you are wasting money on your link building efforts! You are making HUGE SEO MISTAKES! I wish sometimes I could yell at you ha ha… but instead I will spend a bit of my time and go over the most common mistakes we see!
KEYWORDS too BROAD!
Yes, try to rank for “coffee” or “diaper” or “tire” or anything along those lines WILL NOT MAKE YOU ANY MONEY! You will probably not rank for it either, and again, even if you did, what is the point… it is too broad!
Sites NOT optimized!
What you should do is AT LEAST add your main keyword phrase into your URL. Yeah, having it in the URL makes a huge difference! It is the basics of on page optimization. If you just spend the extra 10 min to optimize your pages, you are going to succeed online. AND – you will need way less backlinks to rank well! These 10 minutes SAVE YOU MONEY!
Yes, there is a way to shorten your links by doing this, but most of the times this is NOT the case.
The little % sign actually means you have left a space there! DO NOT DO THAT, do it like this instead:
Text in the Graphics? COME ON!
Crawling spiders cannot read the text that is in the graphics (unless you optimize the graphics for it)… Add the text, use “alt” for each image, to let the search engines know what you want to rank for! It is a lot easier
Make an attractive title!
One last thing! If you are trying to rank for example for “Link Dominators” and that is what the link dominators title said, there is a HUGE chance no body would click on it even if you were on the very first result! HOWEVER, if you make your title sound interesting such as “Current Discount on Link Dominators Service”, I bet more people would click on it!
So here is what you need to do! DO your keyword research. DO it well! Add the keyword phrase in:
TITLE (make sure your keyword phrase is included in your title)
URL (make sure your keyword phrase is in your url)
Add your keyword phrase in the first and the last paragraph of your text (and throughout the text)
Get the keyword density right (make sure it is between 1-3%)
Ta da!!! You have optimized it! That is NOT too hard! These things are basic and they will get you up there!
And the very last thing… Now that I got this out of me I feel calm ! I hope you will listen to my advice because we have a customer James C.! He actually is a member who has the 60 URL package, and recently I checked his rankings! He is in Google on the #1st page for a keyword phrase that has over 11 600 000 results! (without quotes!!!) Now, you may wonder how he did this? Simple, he is doing the steps that are outlined above and he is consistent with his link building! That is it, nothing more!
We see people who give up after the very first week. SEO takes time. James has been with us for over 5 months now, and he listens when we offer him advice. He recently sent this message to us: “Thanks Alex. You guys are a big help to my family and I”. This has brought tears to my eyes… Because we have managed to help someone with their business and it is helping to feed his family.
We really want to help you too… But you have to take action! Stop making those mistakes PLEASE!!! Because just 10-15 minutes spent on optimization can make all the difference!
Thank you all,
