How Google+ can double your CTR in Google`s search results

 

English: Google+ wordmark

“#1 on Google = 34.35%, #3 on Google 11.42%, #6 – 5.05% of traffic” Chitika

As you can see from the quote above, being #1 on Google is worth at least 6x as being #6. Or is it?

The study from Chitika was done mainly with your ever day search results, found for random searches in Google made my millions of volunteers participating in the study. (You can check out the study and the results HERE .)

But as time goes on, so does Google`s march on world domination. The engineers keep on tweaking the algorithm and adding/testing new features daily. Some stick, but most of them never see day light (or at least never catch the eye of any users, because they stay at the “pilot” stage).

Google declares war on Paid links services

“Build my Rank got completely de-indexed!” Every IM forum – 20.3.2012

The Internet marketing community is in chaos. The first great hit of “Google`s war on paid backlinks” occurred on the 19.3.2012, when one of the biggest players got hit hard. “Build my rank” is one of the biggest services offering backlinks from their (supposedly) huge blog network in return for a monthly fee, paid by their clients.

I have used BMR (short for “Build my rank”) in the past, but quit using it after the first month. Why?

Google Adsense Alternatives

So you have done it. The one thing that might just scar you for the rest of your life. You lost your Google Adsense account. If you have been banned, you probably know that there is a 99.99% that you will never get it back. Sorry, but that’s the cold hard truth. Don’t expect an explanation from the Google Adsense team as well. If you have a brother, sister or any other family member living with you that has had their account banned, you are toast as well.

Instead of crying about it, you should look into various Google Adsense alternatives out there. There are dozens of them on the market, but I (alongside a team of other Adsense junkies) tested out various ones and came up with the following “TOP 5 Google Adsense Alternatives”. Hopefully this will monetize your traffic well, but to be completely honest, there is no equivalent PPC system to Google Adsense. We have gone as high up as reaching 45% of the Adsense income with a couple of the Google Adsense alternatives stated bellow.

My first 4-Hour WorkWeek Expedition – 6 Weeks of South-East Asia

Work less to achieve more & party my ass off in the process. That’s the plan…

“Fuck it, I am outta here!”

Those were the exact words I used just prior to purchasing my tickets to Bangkok (Thailand) about a week ago. I have been dreaming of taking such a vacation for years, but the timing always seemed “off”. At least I thought it was. I was always caught up in the “excuse for excuses sake” circle, so the problem was studying, work, financial problems or just a girlfriend who doesn’t like traveling at all.

I have managed to unleash all of the shackles that were holding me back, thanks to a couple of inspirational people and some inspirational books I`ve read in the past. I am done with academics and care little about my degree in “there will be no jobs for you in the next 30 years” economics. I believe “street smarts” are way more important these days. The entrepreneurial road is way more fun and way more profitable, than the please somebody stick a fork in my eye cause I don’t wanna go to my 9-17 job.

How to do SEO – Making Google your Best friend is priority #1

SEO Basics explained

Stop Eating Out – If you believe that’s what SEO stands for, then you are in the right place. First and foremost SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization and not the above mentioned tag line. The text bellow is my personal take on SEO Basics, which I know helped me in all my online endeavors and will hopefully help you as well. These SEO Basics are aimed for people with NO experience whatsoever, or to those that are just starting out. Some “senior” members will not be wasting their time, but they will do some refurbishing of the basics. (The read is approximately 8 minutes long and well worth your time).

What is SEO?

Search engine optimization is a process, which a webmaster (creator of a web-page, preferably YOU) goes through in order to get his website ranking well (as high as possible) in the search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing etc. I will cut out all the jibber jabber about the other SE (search engines) out and focus solely on Google. Why? Because you are here to get the BEST advice in order to achieve the BEST results possible. If the latter is not your intent, you can leave and go play with pennies. We will not miss you.

How to profit from giving away a used car for FREE?

Profit and the word free do not go well together. Or do they?

I have pondered on a new experimental endeavor in which I intend to give away my 17 year old Honda Prelude, cause there is not much chance anybody would want to buy one for the amount of money it is actually worth (mainly due to high gas price/consumption and registration fees).

But how can you say NO to a free car? That’s exactly my point:”You can’t!”

You can drive it, because after all it is a Honda and it will work for 127 years to come. It’s a coupe so it looks better than 99% of the cars on the road today.

You can sell it and make a profit for yourself. (It is one of the most tedious tasks in the world for me, therefore I am challenging myself to find a better and more “exciting” way to “get rid” of my car.

You can put a cubic meter of soil into it and plant a big ass palm tree in it, whilst placing it in the middle of your garden. I am not saying you should do it, but you could.

All in all I have no preoccupations with the cars future.

How to get your website on Google in under 30 minutes

Liar Liar pants on fire! <- This might be what many of you are thinking, but for now my pants are just fine.

Yes, I did it. I stumbled upon (not reffering to the social bookmarking site) this “bug” a few months ago and made very good use of it ever since. I wish to share this with you, so you can start getting the traffic in as soon as possible. Just follow the few easy steps posted on the bottom and you will be well on your way.

Note to self : Whatever you do, DO NOT spam or over-promote your site with tons of other social bookmarks, because it will only make it worse in the long run. The healthy way to use social bookmarks will be explained in detial in another post, but for now just keep in mind that 1 … yes ONE backlink a day is ENOUGH. Adding more will only appear spammy and make it worse. Trust me on this one people, I ve been slapped, beaten and whipped by “The Big G” <- Google, to many times in the past.

How much do Facebook ads cost & How to get the lowest Cost Per Click

There are plenty of arguments against using FB ads as a form of PPC (Pay Per Click) advertising. There are a few advantages to the system, if you know how to use it properly. I shall discuss both sides of the coin, the way I see it. I have done my research with FB Ads both on a global and on a local scale. It is in the latter part where I found the “trick”. Keep in mind this is A WAY not THE WAY, to go about Facebook ads.

Why does Facebook even have adds? Aren’t the apps, that are generating income enough?

When Facebook came around, it most probably had the same ideas as Google. They had “we will sell ad space” at the bottom of the income-generation list. Of course they both went down the same path and came to the conclusion, that selling advertising space is the only way to go. People usually think that all the apps, like addictoholic games, such as Mafia Wars and Farmville, with over 40 million active players, generate a lot of income. They do! But not for Facebook! Facebook made a crucial error, when they literally gave the free space to Zynga, so they can run their games on Facebook. The purpose of this was just to keep the masses ON Facebook at all cost. Zynga is generating far more profits, than Facebook at this time. But who knows, what the master plan of Facebook is. Being one of 3 sites on the entire web space with PR 10 and Alexas ranking #2 is quite the peak I would say.

All in all; Facebook makes its $$$ from selling ad space via their Facebook ads system.
