Professional SEO Techniques

Comments Off on Professional SEO Techniques

Professional SEO Techniques is an excerpt from my free e-book which you can get by signing up to the list on your right.

There are two parts to SEO, on-page, and off-page SEO. To begin with, you will want
a website that has a short, relevant domain name to the subject you are going to be
writing about.

Before you buy this domain name, you should do some keyword research, to find an
exact-match domain name for the title of your home page that gets a lot of traffic, and
that doesn’t have too much competition.

Some people use Market Samurai, and while I would recommend them if you’re
prepared to take the time to learn how to use it, you can also just check the search
volume for a keyword phrase on the Google keyword tool, and do a Google search on
a title you want in quotation marks, and without, to see the amount of exact match
results, and what the first page competition is like.

I use a free Firefox add-on from SEO Book to check the page rank, and I have
another piece of free software called SEO Powersuite that lets me check the back
links to those sites.

Anyway, even if you find it hard to compete for a popular title on your home page, if
the domain name is relevant to what you are writing about, you will have a better
chance in getting your specific sub-domains on the first page of Google.
Let’s just look at what I mean:

Bad: URL: slippy.com/page-1: Title: Good SEO
Good: URL: seobenefits.com/good-seo

Apart from the domain name, you will want a good host, and I buy my domain names
and hosting from Host Gator, it’s just easier to get them in the one place, and they
have a 24 hour chat support team to talk you through everything.
Once you have your domain name and hosting, you have to learn how to use
Wordpress, or some other website builder. WordPress is best.

Promotion Techniques for Your Site

Comments Off on Promotion Techniques for Your Site

It is important to know which promotion techniques to use for your site, as some of them can be expensive, or very ineffective compared to others. You could spend a lot of time doing one thing, when another works so much better.

As with advertising, the key is split testing, to understand what gets you the best value for money, or is the best use of your time. Talking of advertising, did you know that you can get one cent clicks on Google Adwords if you just use the right settings? If you have a good sales page with a good profit margin and conversion rate, then this is the best way to go.

If you want a completely free option, you can learn a bit about SEO, such as having the right keyword content on your page, and the right sort of relevant, high page rank back links from other pages. There is a lot to SEO, so I won’t go into it more here.

Another way you can get traffic to your site is by paying people a small amount to  share your site on Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon, or any number of other sites. There are many places you can find these sort of outsourcing gigs, such as Fiverr, Microworkers, or Webeserve.

I myself do a lot of quick gigs on Fiverr, and you can take a look at my best selling Fiverr gigs to see if one of those might help you. Otherwise, there are a number of gigs on this site, which are pretty much the same thing, but a lot better value, as Fiverr isn’t taking their 20% cut, and I can offer better value for money, and do a professional job.

It’s not just quick social promotion gigs I can help you with, I can help you set up a profitable advertising campaign, make hundreds or even thousands of quality back links, give you SEO advice, and just generally help with every step along the way of building a website and making it successful.

Please contact me at rowan@professionalsocialpromotion.com to discuss promotion techniques for your site, and I will do my best to help you, or just visit the home page and order a gig. You’ll still need to contact me with your site details, though.
