This article is meant for website owners who want better search engine rankings and links popularity. There are numerous on-page and off-page factors used for SEO, which are important to Google, Yahoo, MSN, and other major search engines.
Off-page factors are the number of links coming to your website, but they are not the only off-page factor to be concerned with. There are also back links. In the case of web designers, they need links from other web designer sites. Other links that are valuable to web designers are from web host, webmaster tools, or seo (search engine optimization) industries. On the other hand, a link from a casino will be of no use to a web designer’s website. This is why it is imperative to have reciprocal links with relating websites. Don’t waste your valuable time with ineffective back links when you can find related websites instead.
Website owners like to exchange links with high ranking websites. PR8 sitelinks are better than PR0′s. But, over time, PR0s sites PR will grow. So, link with a PR0 site now, and in 6 months it will become a PR5+. Which do you think is easier to link to: a growing PR0 site or a PR5+ one? A PR0, of course; however, either is valuable to your seo efforts.
There are other factors too: one-way-links and reciprocal linking. First, one-way-links: a web owner will linking to a website, but that website won’t linkback. Second, reciprocal links: a web owner will link to a website and that website will linkback to the web owner. For these links, there are two critical factors to keep in mind.
1. One-way-links are have more popularity. Search engines believe them to be more natural, which makes them think the site has a better quality.
2. Reciprocal linking are easier to get. And, relevant reciprocal links are superior to irrelevant one-way links.
Then, there is the domain age. The older the site you are linking to, the higher the newer site’s link value and the more popularity it will enjoy. So, if you wish to rank high with search engines, don’t use sneaky SEO strategies, like changing domain names every year to get away with link farming.
Page rank and quality website links. Turn your website into one of your industry’s best and you will have valuable links too.

I see marketers do this all the time and it just drives me crazy. They create a product, put together a marketing campaign to promote it, set up their funnel system to get people into their autoresponder series, create their backend products, upsells and what have you…and then when things don’t start taking off the way they expect…they throw the whole thing in the trash. It’s about the stupidest way to run a business that I have ever seen in my life. And yet it happens all the time. People just chuck the baby out with the bath water. I’m writing this to tell you that there IS a better way…and it’s SO simple. Keep reading and you’ll find out just HOW simple.
Assuming that you’ve done your market research, that there actually IS a demand for this product, then you know that the potential for profit is there. If you haven’t done your market research, well, shame on you. Go back to square one and see if anybody wants the darn baby to begin with. Not everybody wants to raise a family. My ex girlfriend said she’d have to have a gun put to her head to have kids. That was the end of OUR relationship.
The next step is to examine each part of your marketing process and see WHERE the problem lies. Because there are so many steps in the process, any one of them can screw up the whole works. For example. If your initial ads are weak, nobody is going to go to your sales page or squeeze page. If your squeeze page is weak, nobody is going to click through to sign up to your list. If your autoresponder follow ups are not strong and don’t contain valuable content, people won’t go back to your sales page from them and ultimately unsubscribe.
The good news is, ALL of these things are easily trackable. Put a tracking URL in your ads, articles or whatever you use to get people to your squeeze page or sales page. Then, look to see how many clicks you get and how many people actually sign up for your newsletter. Then look to see how many of your newsletters are being opened and how many of those people are going back to your sales page.
Somewhere in that system, you will find the weak link. For all I know, they may all be weak, but there is no way to know unless you test them all. The first step is to actually get people to go to your sales page, which means writing a good article or a strong ad. Take it step by step. Eventually, you’ll figure out what has to be improved or modified.
Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water!
Baby’s can’t survive without some loving care.
To YOUR Success,
First and foremost you really need to be interested in it. You have to want it bad enough, because the journey to success will involve many challenges and failures along the way. In terms of affiliate marketing, to give you an idea of the numbers, over ninety percent fail. The reason they fail is because they give up. Failure and success in essence are two sides of the same coin.
They are interrelated. In order to know what works you need to find out what does not work. Additionally what works for me may not necessarily work for you in exactly the same way. Mediocrity will be your enemy, to do things in a half hearted fashion will just not cut it. Again you have to want it bad enough and the reservoir of interest needs to be deep, because if it is otherwise it will run dry pretty quickly.
Your biggest obstacle will actually be you, you are the one who will either stick it out when times get tough or quit when everything is failing around you. You are the one who will look at a problem as a problem or look at it as an opportunity. You can see opportunity everywhere, that is if you are looking for it, however many people miss it because it looks too much like work. Truthfully your success lies within your own understanding; it lies outside of the box of opinion and conclusive thinking.
Your success is a journey not a destination and it is a journey of discovery and learning. It is a journey of responsibility and not blame. You essentially will be the author of your own success story – that is if you are willing to write it.

Nothing actually. It doesn’t have the cachet of Dot Com but is considered by many to be the second Dot Com; many site owners use them interchangeably. One of the original five domain name extensions (Com, Org, Gov, Mil and Net) created in 1985, it was originally conceived as intended for network providers. Today anyone can purchase a Dot Net domain name, and in popularity it is fourth among domain extensions following Dot Com, Dot De and Dot Cn.
It would be interesting to know when it was opened for unrestricted registration. And why. Is it possible the decision was an economic one? There was obviously a lot more money to be made selling the extension to all comers rather than only to Internet providers. Even so, there is plenty of room left to business interests for relevant domain names. Whereas Dot Com has sold over 82 million names, Dot Net-as of 2009-has sold less than 13 million.
Aftermarket domain names, those names already registered by investors in hopes of making a profit on their sale to individuals and businesses searching for the perfect domain name, are considerably cheaper on average with a Dot Net extension than a Dot Com. Porn.Com, for instance, sold for 9.5 million; Porn.Net sold for a trifling $400,000 (I know, I know, its an over-the-top example; but it does wonderfully illustrate my point!).
I admit that Dot Net isn’t the first domain extension a person thinks of when they set about finding a website; but it most probably is the second even if it is the fourth most popular worldwide. After all, Dot Org brings to mind organizations, not commercial entities, and Dot De and Dot Cn, while immensely popular to their individual populations (Germany and China), are hardly household names outside their borders.
So, before you register a completely unsuitable Dot Com domain name or break the bank trying to purchase one, give a thought to anchoring your website with a Dot Net extension.

This truly is the business to get into in 2005. It’s a red hot opportunity that savvy investors can make a killing on when you know how. And this article will walk you step-by-step through the money-making process.
Don’t be put off by the term “investors”. I’m not talking big money down here. As long as you’ve got a spare £5 a week then great money can be made for only half an hour of your time. Like the sound of that? Thought so.
There’s a few ways you can make money buying domain names and selling them on for profit. And I mean PROFIT. You’ll see why people will be scratching at your door to buy off you in just a moment.
Let’s start with the basics.
All domain names are only registered for a limited amount of time.Registrars can choose to use the name for a period of between 1-10 years. After this the rights to these domain names expire and the user has to renew the name again. If they don’t do this it will be placed on hold for a short time and then deleted. This means it is then availible for anyone who wants to buy it!
This Is Where You Can Cash In!
20,000 expired domain names are made availible each and every day. Some of them are very attractive and well-established names.
Example. Last year the owners of Race.com carelessly didn’t renew their registration fee. It was grabbed (the term used to describe purchasing an expired name) by a savvy ‘investor’ for a few pounds and sold for thousands and thousands back to the old owner.
The owner was willing to pay huge sums for to the investor because he had built up qualified traffic over X amount of years and didn’t want to lose all the previous custom.
Now I admit that making a sale for thousands is rare, but is certainly possible.
The likeliness is that you can buy a domain name and register it for £5-£50 and then sell it on for anything from £150 – £1000. Do this with five domain names a week, and your looking at a big sum of money for only a couple of hours work.
It’s not just businesses that have carelessly let their domain name that will buy off you. It’s other businesses too that will buy the name to get the old owners’ traffic. It’s a legitamate way of increasing your customer base.
And if the old owner and a new potential owner get into a bidding war…well..the sky really is the limit.
So there’s two main reasons why people will be willing to pay YOU a couple of hundred pounds for a domain name.
a) They carelessly let the domain name expire. That means that they will pay you to get the name back to ensure that they don’t lose their existing traffic that they may have built up over years and years.
B) They are a business in the same field as the one that has let the name expire and therfore will pay you to secure the exisitng custom of a rival.
Here’s step-by-step how you go about this fantastically profitable part time business.
There are several sources of expired domain name information and reserach tools, some free and some that require a payment of a fee.
http://www.wehavethem.com supplies lists of names due to be deleted. http://Www.DeletedDomains.com allows you to do some searching free and more extensive searching for a $99 annual fee.You can search for names that are due to be deleted and also allows you to bid on newly deleted names that have already been grabbed by other ‘investors’.
What you are looking for is an expired domain name with traffic in the last month of anything over 1500. Ensure that the site is an actual consumer site. There’s no point buying a domain name if the previous site wasn’t selling any goods.
If you see a site that had tens of thousands of visitors in the last month GET IT. The likeliness is that the previous owners will be itching to get their name back off of you due to its obvious success.
Also if you see a name with a large qualified traffic thats due to expire and has a high traffic volume use an automated grabbing system such as http://www.snapnames.com and http://www.pool.com. These will ensure the second they become availible you will have registered them. The cost is about $60 but only if they get the names for you. Definately worth it in my eyes.
Remember you could easily sell the name for hundreds, maybe thousands.
In part 2 we’ll take a look at how you go about selling the names once you have acquired them. But in the mean time here’s a few domain names which were up for sale at the time of writing this article. Now obviously not all names sell for this much, but it’s a very real possibility that you could stumble across a gem in your business.
The profits in this business are like no other. Now it’s your turn to get your hands on your share in the billion dollar industry of buying and selling domain names.
Until next time…

Internet Marketing Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today! Putting things off in an Internet Marketing business can hurt your income. We all seem to do it! I don’t feel like doing that today, I’ll do it tomorrow. Tomorrow comes and you get caught up with something else and forget to do what you needed to do or you just put it off again. In Internet Marketing as with any business when something needs to get done you should get on it. Don’t put it off. As an Internet marketing business owner you will have things you don’t like doing, we all do. If you keep putting them off they will never get done and you will be losing money.
Let’s say you market your own physical product and you are making sales. You hate doing the shipping and you don’t want to or can’t pay someone else to come in to do it. Now you hate doing it so much you are putting it off and are only shipping once a week. This is causing you to hate it even more because when shipping day comes along now it is so piled up you may be spending 10 or 12 hours preparing products for shipping. This makes for a long day and causes you to hate shipping that much more.
As an Internet Marketer you need to think of some other things. Say your shipping day is Friday. You had 5 orders on Monday and have already been paid. You ship Mondays orders on Friday so they probably aren’t going far over the weekend, now your customer will probably receive his product on Wednesday of the following week. If you would have bit the bullet and shipped his order Monday or at the latest Tuesday, the day after he ordered he would have had his merchandise the same week. Since you hate shipping he had to wait 10 or 12 days to get his products. Next time he may go somewhere else because he knows he will get his products faster. So now your hating the shipping end of your Internet Marketing business has probably cost you a repeat customer. So much of an Internet Marketing business or any other business is built around returning customers and you can’t afford to lose that.
This is what I do. I make a schedule sometimes in my head and sometimes on paper of what I want to get done the next day. I try to schedule the things I don’t really like to do first. Now I knock them out right off the bat and the rest of my day is a breeze!
If you want to guarantee failure in your Internet business, there is a definite road to follow to obtain that objective. It has never failed to work, it works every time. All you need to do is to follow these eight steps I lay out for you, and I promise perfect results every time.
1) Get to know hype as a true asset and use it at every opportunity. Try this one: Make $3,000,000 an hour while working out at Bally’s. Just $19.95 for the whole plan. Who can resist that one!
2) Never ever do any research on a company you are interested in. Don’t worry, if you can’t see the value of hype, this one will get the job done. You will be a big failure in no time. Trust me!
3) Forget about spending even a penny on your business. Why should you? If you were to spend a few hundred dollars to get traffic to your site, you may get lots of visitors that might spend some money there and put some dollars in your bank account. Who wants that! That would be becoming a success; we don’t want to touch that with a ten foot pole, do we?
4) Don’t pay much attention to your business. Let it run itself, hopefully into the ground. We have much more important things to do with out time, like hanging out at the beach or working out at Bally’s, don’t we?
5) Try to get as many hits to your site as you can that won’t do you any good as you can. Who cares if 70 year old men continually go to your site about pregnant teenagers or childbirth. Your site is there to be seen by everyone. Isn’t it!
6) A must for failing is not having a plan of act. Those things take time and make too much sense. If you come up with a good plan of action, you might just be successful. That would spoil everything we are trying to do here. Forget about that!
7) Try to get away with doing as little as possible. If you don’t follow this one, you would be putting in some work. People that do work sometimes become successful. This one is a definite no-no.
8) If you haven’t been able to follow my rules in 1-7 so far, there is something you must do at this stage of the game to make up for it. You must give up. Quit doing what you are doing. If you don’t, you are putting yourself in danger of not failing. Heaven forbid that!
Thankfully, over 95% of all business owners manage to stick to the plan and obtain the expected outcome. Congratulations to all these losers and failures out there! Keep up the great WORK. Yips! Did I just say a dirty word!

So you want to be an Internet superstar, work from home and earn six figures cool we are working on doing just that. In previous articles we have discussed figuring out what you want to do for your home business another term for this is finding your niche.
We then discussed a few different programs available to help you if you are a Veteran, or Single mother. (There is a lot more of this to come)
We will now discuss step three in designing your income producing website.
Proper domain name selection.
When selecting a domain name there are a couple of key questions you should ask.
Is my domain name easy to remember?
When purchasing a domain you want to keep it as short as possible and avoid hyphens whenever possible. For example H-B-S.biz is much easier to remember then Home-Business-Success.biz. In this case we bought both names. We use the shorter domain to put on business cards, flyers, and brochures. When a person types in H-B-S.biz they are automatically forwarded to our long domain website. The long domain URL has two of our keywords in it, which should help with the search engines. The bottom line is the shorter and more memorable the domain the better. It is suggested to put keywords into your domain name wherever logically possible. Try to keep the domain short and use a maximum of three words. If you want to brand your company you can insert your company name in the domain. Be as specific as possible, for example if my company was called: XYZ marketing and one of my websites was about Home business I could purchase the domain XYZHomebusiness.com.
In, this example we have both our company name and keywords, so this would be a good domain name to choose. With some niches such as Home business the competition is tough so as in our case you might have to settle for a domain name with hyphens in it. Try to avoid it but it is not the end of the world.
Has anyone owned the domain prior to me?
When I was first looking for a domain name for H-B-S, I was happy to discover that Home-business-xxxxx.com was available so I bought it. Big mistake. We proceeded to build the page and gather incoming links as well as doing some manual submissions to directories. After a few weeks we noticed that our site was not getting crawled by the search engines. We also noticed that any emails I sent to Jeff using the new domain got blocked by his email spam program “Spam Cop”. We both wondered what the heck was going on. It was then I started to do some investigation to find out if someone else had owned the domain name prior. There are a number of ways you can check this. The first way is to go to Alexa.com and use the Wayback machine. Check to see if the site has ever been published on the net before. If the site is about Gambling, or a Pill store I suggest you look for another name.
Should I only buy a .com URL? Two years ago I would have said yes, however, today a .biz URL is fine. A majority of people who surf the net are aware of the .biz extension and your customers should also be able to remember it easily. As with the hyphen example above if you can get the .com and a spammer has not used it in the past go ahead and get both the .biz and .com versions.
Should I buy all the extensions available? In a nut shell yes! With the cost of a domain name starting at around $7.00 each I suggest for peace of mind and future growth you buy the .com, .biz and .org variations of your domain name. I know of a case where a person put up their site and built it for six months very successfully. Well about three months later the person discovered someone had bought the .biz version of their URL and was trying to steal traffic. Listen you are investing in your future success, spend a few extra dollars now to avoid a potentially major headache in the future.
Should I buy a domain name from a Domain auction? You should save your money. There are thousands of combinations of domain names that will fit your business. Take that money and invest it into your website promotion perhaps through Pay per click or pay for submission to a few of the upper level directories.
I hope this article has helped you and will make your domain name selection easier and more profitable.
