Having Trouble Improving Your Google Ranking?

Today after coming back to office I read one interesting article, about Having Trouble Improving Your Google Ranking?

Well, how to improve our google ranking? More traffic I presumed. Many SEO gurus are saying that Google is by far the most important search engine on the net. To rise to the top of their search engine, we need to improve our link popularity and we need to understand how google measure our link popularity (over 50% of all search engine traffic comes from Google, and if you can rise to the top, you will likely rise to the top of all the other search engines as well) ūüôā

Link popularity is defined as the number of sites that are linking to our site. Some websites have thousands or even millions of sites linking to them, while others might have only a few. The search engines use the number of inbound links your site has as a measure of how important your site is, which translates into your search engine ranking.

The actual number of links to your site is not the only variable used to calculate your link popularity. The search engines also examine the relevance of the links to the subject matter of your site. For example, if a website that sells vitamins has 4,000 inbound links, but the source of most of the links are websites that have nothing to do with vitamins, then the algorithm that search engines use to determine link popularity will take that into account, and the link popularity score will not be very good.

It is possible for a website with a relatively small number of quality inbound links to be ranked higher than a site with a bunch of irrelevant or insignificant links. If I have a website that offers quotes for auto insurance, and I have 800 quality inbound links, then I might receive a much higher search engine ranking than another mortgage site that has 3,000 links that stem from link farms or Free For All (FFA) pages.

If you try to acquire inbound by using link farms or FFA pages, not only will it hurt your search engine ranking, but you might get permanently removed from the search engine listings. Links farms are sites where you can instantly exchange links with all the sites listed in that directory. FFA pages are pointless link directories. The search engines usually discount any links that come from either of these sources.

Now that we understand what link popularity is and how it works, we need to look specifically at how Google measures it. They use a number of variables in their algorithm to calculate your overall link score. The higher your score, the higher you will be ranked in the search listings.

One factor that Google uses in their algorithm, obviously, is the total number of sites linking to you. The more links you have, the higher your score will be. However, their algorithm is a little more complicated than that, and it is possible for a website with fewer links to be ranked higher than a website that has more links.

The reason for this is because Google also measures the quality of your links. If your website is about vitamins, and the site linking to you is a video game site, then that is not considered a quality link. The link still helps your score, but the link would help your score much more if it were from a website whose subject matter is the same as yours.

Also, Google gives a higher score to a link if it comes from a page that has actual content that relates to your keywords. For example, if your site is about jewelry, and another jewelry website has posted a link to your site on their links page, that link is not as valuable as a link to your site coming from a blog or a message board where a lot of information about jewelry is being written or discussed.

Also, they give an even higher score to a link if it contains anchor text that matches one of the keywords that describes your site. For example, if I have a site that sells lawnmowers, and a blog about lawnmowers has posted a link to my site, it helps my score even more if the link text (also known as anchor text) is LAWNMOWERS. To learn more about anchor text, go to a search engine and look up ANCHOR TEXT and you will be able to learn about it.

Another factor used by Google to score your link popularity is the diversity of keywords contained on sites linking to you. For example, if you have a site that sells handbags, and all the links to your site are from other sites that contain nothing but the keyword HANDBAGS, Google considers that to be abnormal. To get a higher score, you need to have links coming from sites that contain a variety of keywords related to handbags, such as BUY HANDBAGS, LEATHER HANDBAGS, etc.

It is difficult to increase your link popularity, but now that you understand how your score is calculated, you can devise a plan to improve your score. You might want to consider posting to forums and blogs that contain information that is related to your site, and when you post, include a link to your site.

> Communication is very important if one need to succeed in MLM Business. Always be prepared to talk and communicate. Effective communication is a must in all businesses.

> How to overcome rejection in MLM? One must have focus to succeed and always tell your love ones of what is your goal in doing this business and get their 100% support. Without their support you are going to FAIL in this business model.

> Join an MLM company who has the clear goal to Success, an established MLM business company and registered with the local Authority and have an AJL licence (example in Malaysia). Build your credibility of becoming a great MLM marketer with one company. Do not jump to any other company without establish yourself first in the business.

Your upline as advisor, you yourself as the Bridge, to your prospect or customer. This is the model for a newcomer to this business.

> For a start, have a list of prospect. What type of prospects needed for this business?

You could categorize your prospects to 3 groups:

a. As Supporters
b. As good listerners
c. As no good listerners

Azman Chin said one need to become “A Doctor in A Battlefield”. Save people who are really in needs and leave a 50-50% chance person as side but comeback to them later. This is just to motivate yourself and be focus in this business.

> When you are motivated and committed to do this business, you need to have K.A.S.H.

        K РKnowledge               A РAttitude                   S РSkill                   H РHealth

You need to upgrade your knowledge to do this business, have a right and good attitude, attained a good skill and a great health to become a Successful MLM business builder or owner.

Article Writing Versus List Building

I would like to share one interesting article that I read today. The author is Gary Baker

There is a very close relationship between writing an article and building an opt-in list. Article writing is a skilled technique to convince the target.

For example let us say that a person writes an article to send it through an email campaign, so that people visit his website and/or opts-in for a newsletter.

The direct target of this person is to perform in such a way so that people who read the email may immediately be convinced that they should join the newsletter. So, coming to the point, the article written in the email body should be powerful.

After reading your email article, if people think that you are saying the truth and they feel it internally by heart, along with relevant facts outlaying the benefits and value of the products you are promoting, then more than likely, this means that your article is excellent and more people will respond to join your opt-in list.

So, this is the main reason behind the close relationship of article writing and list building.

The first email written for an email campaign should be a welcome email. This step should also never be ignored. If possible, please include free giveaway products, coupons, etc.

Another thing to remember is that while writing the article for email campaigns, take care in using something unique and different in the subject line.

Todays human being has the mentality of using common sense and psychological ideas, before taking action.

When anyone checks his inbox, he will first of all directly read the subject and delete without going further through your mail, if his psychological idea says that it’s a spam.

This is the reason why you should use unique and different subject lines. If a visitor comes to your website or receives an email from you looking for information and doesn’t sign up to receive your e-mails, you may miss an opportunity to turn that customer into cash.

So write the best articles and get the more customers to your list, whether it’s a website or email campaign.

Happy list building!
