Pinterest is a search engine, and I have proof. Why is this important? It’s important because it means you cans top obsessing over Google traffic (if you want to). Sure, Google is the biggest game in town, but it’s not the only one. Plus, even if you are a rockstar at ranking in Google, if […]
One of my personal crusades in the affiliate marketing space is figuring out what actually works. One piece of advice I received in the past, and assumed was true, was that you should avoid “buy” keywords with the content you publish. In other words, you’re wasting your time if you try to rank for something […]
I often get asked the following question by other Webmasters and just people in general, how many visits per day or per month is “good”? Well, there’s no exact number because it depends on your situation. Every niche or industry is different. How good you are at converting your visitors into paying customers will determine […]
Why Is Traffic So Important Traffic is massively important to you website. If you are a natural writer and write interesting stuff, traffic will eventually come, no matter what. The cool thing about the internet is that if you are interested in a topic, there are a thousand other people that will share that same interest. […]
This post was originally a series of emails that I recycled for content on my blog. That’s why it’s written like an annoying email marketer instead of a blog post. I’m too lazy to fix it now. Why is it here if it sucks? It doesn’t suck. There’s some good info in here, and my […]
Websites like Traffic Swarm contribute to the stigma of all online marketing schemes.
You know how so many people think online marketing, and online marketers are all scammers? Well, Traffic Swarm is partly to blame for that.
No, they didn’t invent sleazy internet marketing tactics, but they are perpetuating that type of reputation.
The type of “traffic” they promise is not really traffic at all. It’s a bunch of people who click on ads all day to earn credits that give them the right to show their ads to others who couldn’t care any less about what they’re clicking on.
In short, Traffic Swarm is for lazy people who are looking for an easy button, and think that will come in the form of credits-for-traffic. It’s a worthless website that will, no doubt be gone before the end of the year.
Secret Web Assets does pretty much provide what it advertises, which is a report on SEO for websites. However, I personally was not impressed by the techniques promoted in the report, particularly as they strongly rely on article spinning and backlinks. Many of the techniques are ones that Google does not approve of, which means that there is significant risk of your site losing ranking as a consequence.
When I started marketing online, I remember that one of the biggest hurdles my mind had to jump over was how to write reviews of so many products, when there was no way that I could own everything I wrote about. I simply couldn’t get on Amazon, spend $10,000 on toys, and then give my opinion on each of them.
It just didn’t make sense! How could I sell stuff when I didn’t own or really know anything about it?
