Getting Your Site's SEO Right

Gee, once you have been online for years and you're making a steady
income, you foolishly convince yourself you know all there is to
know about SEO. I have made that mistake in the past and in some
regards, I am still making that same mistake today.

You can never know too much about SEO.

And I am constantly learning new SEO things as the web changes.
Google Instant is a perfect example of how things can change overnight
on here. While it didn't change SEO per se, it does change how
people use Google and how the results are shown. Searchers don't
get the chance to type in their long-tail keyword phrases because
they are constantly and instantly being bombarded by suggested links...
so much so that getting those top positions for shorter root keywords
has gotten more important and this has increased everyone's competition
because those popular shorter keywords have always been the most

Which all means, your job as webmaster and online marketer has
become much more difficult. At least that is my opinion, one which
is reflected in my own stats. It also brings home the importance of
getting all your SEO ducks lined up in a row. You simply must have
your site and your content perfectly optimized for the search engines,
especially Google.

With this in mind I have written another one of my longer articles
on SEO. You can find it below, along with some helpful links which
will aid you in checking out and fixing your own site's SEO.

The Actual Internet Marketing Tools Which I USE

I was totally surprised at how few online marketing tools
I actually used in the operation of my online sites and marketing.
For some reason, I thought there would be more, but you really
only need a few essential marketing tools to run an online

It doesn't matter if you're selling your own products or selling
affiliate product; you only need a few simple tools.

Perhaps the major one being your website, which will be the center
of all your online activities. Although a some online marketers
don't even use a web site and rely on their affiliate networks
to supply all that is needed to earn a living from the web.

However, it is much easier with a site or two, especially if you're
into affiliate marketing. It is much easier to promote your affiliate
links with a site but considering how many free blog programs there
are... you can easily go that route.

I sat down and listed all the marketing tools I use to earn an
online living... it's a very small list and you can find it here:

5 Things I Wish I Knew About Internet Marketing (Before I Became a Full-Time Marketer)

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Yesterday, I made in the low 4 figures from my online marketing.

Those days are rare but they do happen once in awhile, but most days
I only make a faction of that amount. That's the great thing about
online marketing - you put all these sites and links on the web and
everything keeps building.

Work done years ago could just now be paying off in the form of higher
rankings in the search engines. That article you wrote two years ago
could just now be getting traffic and sending you potential customers.

When I read an article in SiteReference about site building
and 5 things that author wished they had known before they built
their first site. It started me thinking, what would be the 5 things
which I know now but didn't know then... and the difference that
knowledge would have made.

Hindsight is priceless, if only we could go back and start over again.
What things would we have done right the first time around? As for myself,
I wasted years before I really knew what I was doing... we all don't
suddenly wake up and turn into an Internet marketer. Not like becoming
a vampire, one bite and you're there!

It took me years of "trial and error" before I discovered what worked
and what didn't. I am still learning and the web is constantly changing.
Right now, Google Instant is flipping a lot of online marketing techniques
upside down and even throwing a few of them out the window... you can
always count on Google to make life interesting.

Anyway, I have written another one of my long article/pieces on those 5 Things
about Internet Marketing which I wish I knew when I was just starting out.
And like that poet on the road, it has made all the difference in the world.

Find the it here:

Advanced SEO Tactics - How To Combat Keyword Site Stuffing By A Major Competitor

If you're an online marketer, sooner or later this scary scenario will happen
to you: "Suddenly, out of nowhere, a major competitor has 3 or 4 sites popping
onto the first page of Google for your niche market. These sites are all
keyworded and optimized for the phrases you're targeting and you're getting
bulldozed off the first page."


This competitor by stringing four or more sites together, can virtually dominate
your niche market for all the lucrative keywords... some of these competitors
string 100s of sites together to completely wipe out the competition.

What to do about this serious problem?

Well, the above scenario has happened and is happening to me in several of my
most valuable niche markets. It makes your job as an "honest" and "ethical"
online marketer all the more harder - although there is probably nothing wrong
with creating 4 or 5 sites in a niche market. We are talking about completely
unique content sites which are not spammy or done by software.

Major companies can afford to hire writers, seo experts, webmasters... to line
up a solid organic campaign which can totally blow the small time marketer off
the first page. Completely.

Anyway, I have written a rather long list of my marketing tactics to combat
such an attack.... you can find my tactics here:
