We have just released a new niche keyword research video. This is the first in what is going to be a long line of quality, free Internet Marketing How To videos that will let people implement strategies straight away without having to spend money on yet more Internet Marketing products.
The information is always great quality, the video and audio quality will improve as we go through a short learning curve and become more used to this medium 🙂
We also welcome suggestions as to what short informative videos you would like us to make for you so ask away.
If you are optimizing for Google then it really does pay to let Google tell you which keywords and key phrases it considers important enough to index your website.
This is no secret strategy on this video but it is little used because a few additional steps are required compared to a normal keyword search but it does result in highly targeted key phrases.
Don’t forget to join our Tips And Tricks newsletter and we’ll let you know when we release new content.

If anybody has suggestions on more good directories please leave a comment with some info.
Here’s the result of yesterdays submissions to Blog Directories And RSS Feed Directories.
Some blog directories require a link back.
If you haven’t downloaded the Authority Black Book yet then you should as it is one of the references I am using for the practical steps I am demonstrating to you about setting up your blog for Web2.0. The link is on the right of the blog.
One thing I don’t agree with in the ABB is the Ping List. Using Pingomatic together with all the other sites means that just about everyone will be pinged twice. In case you didn’t know Pingomatic is a service where you can select up to 15 blogs to ping at one time. If you are doing this manually from their website you are able to select/deselect which sites you want but using Pingomatic as an auto ping in your blog could well result in spamming with the possibility of being banned. Banning is can be just for a short time but what’s the point?
Also consider that if you don’t have the WordPress plugin, WP-Cron Future Pings, which limits post pings to only when published then you could well be doing multiple pings every time you edit the post.
Additionally the list contained a ping for an Indian only site, one premium site and another where I couldn’t find a ping url to use.
I believe that IceRocket also pings multiple sites but I can’t locate the list. If anybody has this info please post.
My updated Ping List is:
I submitted to the following Blog Directories:
Bloguniverse.com – Requires Back link. Problem with login procedure. Waiting for reply from support.
Blogarama.com – Requires Back link.
OK, that’s what I’ve done so far. We still need to find more good blog directories to submit to and make a list of story sites, like Digg, we can submit our post to when done.
Feel free to leave comments.

Well after a complete mind dump yesterday with Web2.0 and trying to work out the most efficient way to write a blog post taking into account SEO and Social sites I went to bed totally fried.
The good news is this morning it all seems a lot clearer.
Understanding the WP Plugins was a challenge mainly because the help file jargon is not at a basic level. For instance if you have little idea what Web2.0, Social sites, tagging and Technorati is all about then the help is meaniingless.
I think a short video will help others in my situation a lot so I’ll put this on my To Do list which never seems to get any shorter.
The WP Plugins Ultimate Tag Warrior and Tagalize It are useful at a basic level but they still need more time to be learned as I am sure they have a whole array of features but I don’t have a week to dedicate to 2 plugins unfortunately.
It appears that UTW is useful for Internal tags within your blog as it will link all tagged posts together and present all the posts relating to that tag when a reader clicks on one of the tags.
Tagalize It enables you to tag words and phrases wihin your article content with a link to either self, Technorati or IceRocket.
An excellent website is OnlyWire which enables you to submit a post to 15 bookmarking sites, such as Del.icio.us, Furl and so on, and also gives you a neat piece of code for your readers to “vote up” your article to the sites.
This is what the code looks like in a post and if my article has been of interest or of any use to you please vote for it.

Our mindset nowadays if we really want to get into the Web2.0 “thang” is for us to make a conscious effort to be more “Social” by applauding sites givinging us good content and ignoring sites which contribute nothing to the way we would like the Internet to be. This will have a far reaching effect on scam and other rip off sites because in the future without votes nobody will see them.
The other site relating to tagging which is very useful is the Evil Genius Tag maker which is free.
This will “Technorati -ize” your tags and also provide linking buttons to some Social sites. You will see this in action at the bottom of this post.
So, do we have to go through the rigramole of using 3rd party plugins for our tagging endeavors or is a copy paste action enough?
Let’s see what we are doing exactly. Let’s get B-A-S-I-C!
- B – Blog – Must Have One Of These. A lot of platforms to choose from. Each blogger will have their own preference – mine happens to be WordPress hosted on my own server.
- A – Applaud (Vote For) Good Content Sites. Gives the owner more incentive to provide us with even more great content.
- S – Social Bookmarking Is Great. It works to everyones advantage and rewards the â€œgood guysâ€ as Harrison Ford may say.
- I – Ignore Scam And â€œGimme Your Moneyâ€ Sites. Nothing wrong with
making a living online but far too many sites are either posing as review sites or other underhand methods to trick you.
- C – CHOICE! Web2.0 gives us almost limitless choice. Not just bookmarking sites but story/article sites, picture sites, video sites, community sites, marketing and advertising sites, news sites – you get the drift? OK.
At the moment I will go with Ultimate Tag Warrior for my internal tagging coupled with OnlyWire and EGM. My Ping list is good so now all that needs to be done is to submit my blog to the main blog directories, RSS Feed directories and find additional popular sites to maximize my web presence for this blog.
Video here we come…
Tomorrow I will post a list of the important directories I have used for you to copy and visit.
I will keep you updated on my progress. Leave comments, suggestions and requests before you leave.
Bye for now.
Let’s test a few tags and see what happens.
I am testing 2 WP Plugins namely Tagalize It and Ultimate Tag Warrior.
UTW as a marketing tool seems to be reasonably straight forward but Tagalize It is not manifesting itself to me – probably because am dumb!
Ok, I am dumb… I had to put a closing tag when using Tagalize It!
Here comes the OnlyWire code…
Right, let’s see how this works out.
Update, UTW is NOT straightforward. More evaluating to do but comparing it with EvilGenius at the moment. Here is EGM code…

It’s a continual bombardment of affiliate marketing products nowadays.
On the one hand we need to be on peopleslists because they did promise us unique downloads, expert information and the latest news when we signed up to receive their ezines didn’t they?
The reality is a never ending stream of marketing products which do range from absolute BS to great info but is generally way too expensive. The latest $497 “Can’t Fail” course will in all probability… fail.
Anyhow, I have written a report called “Haven’t You Spent Enough Damn Money On Affiliate Products Already?”. Just click the title.
Just a brief breakfast thought.
Typing a search term into Overture will give you a vast amount of results. This doesn’t mean you can just put all these results into an Adwords campaign and make a shedful of cash.
If it was that easy everybody would be driving a Roller… or 2.
If you are new to the PPC game then research it thoroughly and then test with what you can afford to lose because the chances are your first few campaigns will lose money – it’s a learning curve.
Even better, find an Adwords expert and have them go through your first campaign with you.
Back to my coffee.

We all like a good laugh at the clever April Fools but it has been known that people have made drastic changes to their web sites or online business because of something they have read on April 1st – some don’t even realize it is April 1st but that’s another thing 🙂
Have a laugh but be careful.
