What is a SEO Marketing Adviser

Had alot of people ask what the hell is SEO, well it is an acronym if you hadn't guessed. But in the internet world it Means Search Engine Optimisation.

Often you see people post that they are a SEO guru, I prefer SEO Marketing Adviser, sounds a lot more professional.

But it got me thinking in my blogs and others there are a lot of acrnyms which people may not understand so here is a very brief list.

SEO- Search Engine Optimisation.
SERP- Search Engine Results Page
Page Rank- How google determines the value of your site and its pages
CPC- Cost per click
CPM- Cost per Mile or i prefer metre. (means per 1000)
CTR- Click through rate measured in percentages.
eCPM- Effective Clicks per mile. (Its the total cost of the clicks + cpm per 1000)
PM- Obviously per mile
BLO- Back link Optimisation (very few people use this but you may come across it)
TAP- Target ad placement.
HTML- HyperText Markup Language (the Language the internet reads)
XML- Extensible Markup Language

Thats it for now, i'll add more when i can think of them

A quick update on Free traffic systems

So just wanted to post that i have had my first article published through free traffic systems. Its been published twice and am starting to work on my second article. Its probably best to explain it does take up to 24hrs before your submission gets approved and then slowly it gets updated onto the blogs after that.

So far mine has been published on 2 blogs, which equals four back links not bad eh?

I done a little research on what kind of submissions they have on there and it looks like the greatest number of blogs are on SEO, Finance and blogging but other categories such as cooking and sports are on there too.

Give it a try if your looking for a link go down my posts till you get to the one which explains what free traffic systems is all about and click where it says click here

Final thought of the day. 03

Just a very quick basic maths lesson..........

So if you have been an avid reader of my posts you should by now have a counter and be able to project your traffic levels for a certain day. Also you may notice AdSense can take some time to update the amount of impressions your getting. Usually the clicks are the first thing to go on there. Which if your like me can get your heart racing if your CTR suddenly jumps to 50% like mine did today.

So how can you predict your final CTR with basic maths of course. So just a quick lesson on working out percentages for those times when google aren't on their game!!

I will use my final CTR as an example So far my AdSense account is showing as 738 impressions with 217 clicks and a CTR of 29%. Yes i proverbially crapped my pants.

However i know my traffic for the day is around 4500 so this is the sum to find your projected CTR. 100 divide that by 4500 = 0.22222
then do this 0.22222 x 217= 4.8% CTR

Remember this is only a projected CTR as you may have more clicks than that, but usually the clicks go on first.

and if not you now have the sum if you ever need to work out percentages.

Making the most of the affiliate links on Free traffic Systems.

So by now if you have read my last post you know what free traffic systems is, if you cant be bothered here's a quick recap....

It is a site which invites you to guest blog. The incentive it will post it onto 30 blogs providing 2 links back to your specified site per blog. So for one article you can get 60 quality links. The affiliates program is if you refer others and they guest blog you will receive 1 link to your site per 3 submitted. So you refer 90 people you get 30 free links. If they then refer another 10 people each you get a link back for every 5 submissions. Effectively you will get quality links for doing nothing.

So how do you go about this affiliates programme?

Firstly go to the website (which can be found on my previous post) go to affiliates copy your referral link. Now paste that into the body of one or more of your blogs/sites. Now every time some one clicks you will get a record of impressions. That's the first way to do it.

Second way is to put it on somewhere like digital point forums, send a post telling people about it and paste your referral in.

Third way, post it into others comments on blogs etc.

Fourth way Put it on twitter! Especially if you have a marketing orientated following.

Free traffic sites with quality links!

Wouldn't you love to be at the top of Googles search for your Keywords. Tired of being at the bottom of the heap. Well no more click here . This is a very simple guide on how you can create thousands of one-way back links fairly easily. It all depends on how much effort you put in however.

The first thing is, this method regards one website, which does work and can increase your back links with out infringing Googles guidelines. They claim to be able to significantly boost your page rank. In theory the idea seems sound but please dont quote me on that. Besides its worth a try isn't it? Basically, it is like an article submitter only far far better.

ok i've got you tempted haven't i, well this is like guest blogging for a large and very handy company. So first off you will need to write an article. The good thing about this website is that it is very careful about duplicate content. They have implemented a feature which allows it to randomly select phrases out of options you choose, so that when you publish it, all of the articles should be different. This is done with specific meta tags [ spin ][/ spin ] (without the gaps).

Also, you select some keywords to publish on, and you get the CHOICE of which blogs you publish the article on, so you make sure that the article is published on a relevant website related to yours for maximum quality. The only problem with it is that each article can only be submitted to 30 blogs. This isn't so bad though, you'll see why next. You can publish 2 links in each article however, so that is 60 back links per article. The way it works is it will generate 60 versions of your article so it is still a quality back link. This does take a little time to do because it is partially manual and you must read the the how too before attempting it.

Also if you refer a person and they publish articles, you get a back link yourself in every 3rd article they publish and you wouldn't have even needed to do anything. Just referred that one person and off you go. Also, for each person that they refer, you get a link in their 5th article, so if you get 100 people to sign up who all make articles and promote, you will have a LOT of back links and you won't even need to maintain it.

So all you need to do is sign up and get started. The back links will be relevant and quality back links, you'll notice a big difference. It is important to note it isn't that straight forward to begin with and may take a few hours to get used to it. I've just completed my first article and it has taken 3 hours. But that's 3hrs with 60 back links. Not bad hey? Well here's the link have fun and good luck.

Oh and did i mention its 100% free, yes free, doesn't cost a penny. As far as i can tell no catch either.

Improving page rank

So what is page rank, well its the way google prioritises the indexing of your site. Effectively the better your rank the higher your site will appear on search results. It is essential that you improve your rank on your sites and blogs since someone searching might get 3,000,000 results and the last thing you want is to be near the bottom.

So how do you improve it, first of all get yourself indexed with google, this can be done through webmaster.

Once you have done that submit site maps for your site. The easiest way to do this is to submit your atom feed to webmaster. This may take a few days before your submitted feed to be processed. the data you should submit is your Url plus atom.xml. So mine for this site looks like this

Once submitted you wont have to keep resubmitting once you have done it once as google will update your site map from time to time.

Within a few days you should have a site map uploaded to webmaster and then a few days later it should be indexed.

Now chances are your page rank will show as low so these are a few steps you need to take to improve it.

1- High quality links to your site/blog. This means sites which google think are of high value (for example wikipedia) Just linking your site to others is not enough you must get them back. A good way to do that is getting your links put on sites such as twitter or spott. Forum links also may help.

2- Words, write, write and write some more. As discussed in previous posts google loves words. So dont fill your pages with pictures it wont help.

3- Improve frequency of keywords. If your site talks about AdSense make sure AdSense is mentioned regularly. But don't do this at the expense of the quality of your writing, your not doing yourself any favors if people wont want to read your work.

4- Network your blog or site even low quality link backs will help.

5- A little trick is to use page headers and perma links or hyperlinks. Please look at my hyperlink section if you don't know how these work.

6- Finally if you have a blog make sure you have a relatively large amount of posts before they get archived to a new page. This will increase the word count of each page since technically each page is indexed separately. However dont go to mad because the more post the longer the loading time which can be counter productive.

There are many more other ways to help improve your page rank but these are the most basic and easiest ones to do.
