How To Make The Best Use Of Google

I don’t think anyone would argue about how important Google is to most people, whether they’re an advertiser, blogger or the multitude of users who rely on the accuracy of Google’s search engines. As far as bloggers or web masters are concerned there’s basically only two of Googles services we’re interested in and strangely enough they are interrelated. As you’ve probably guessed I’m talking about traffic and the income generated from their Adsense account. Even if you don’t use Adsense on you’re site I’m sure you’re very dependant on the traffic Google sends you, otherwise you wouldn’t be spending so much time with SEO, now would you?  :smoke_tb:

Which brings me to what this post is all about, how not to piss Google off because doing so can hurt you, like it did me some time ago when Google stripped my PR4 blogs of all their ranking, which just happened to inspire me to write this poem about Google :devil_tb: . Anyway, as most of you know I’ve been blogging for several years and in that time I’ve come to learn a bit about Google and what the big boy wants from us and I’m about to share that with you.

Google, Seo And Keywords

I have to admit I never used to bother too much about keywords because it was all to hard and it ruined the whole blogging experience. That was before I bought Market Samurai which now does all the hard work for me. I’m sure most of you know a lot about keywords and how they relate to SEO but I’m not sure that you’re actually doing it the right way. Sure it may have been the right way once but what with all those changing algorithms it’s not a big stretch of the imagination to realize things have probably changed.

By some of the emails I’ve been receiving I reckon others have come to realize that Google is a pretty smart cookie. Luckily I haven’t been making the same mistakes as some of my readers, especially those taking advantage of CommentLuv Premium’s Keyword Luv facility. Even though no-one can possible know how Google really thinks, sorry to all those SEO guru guys out there  :tongue_laugh_ee: it’s not too hard to make a few assumptions.

  • Assumption #1: Google’s not dumb enough not to realize that there’s something fishy about too many links pointing to one particular site appearing in a short time span. If this is an accurate assumption to make then the logical solution is to not go crazy on creating too many backlinks all at the same time.
  • Assumtion #2: Knowing that Google wants to deliver a search engine to it’s users that is both accurate and reliable it’s not unreasonable to assume that Google is more interested in natural links than those created by SEO minded bloggers and web masters which is why Google introduced it’s Panda and Penquin updates and who knows what other animalized future updates it has in mind.The common mistake that I’ve seen a lot of commentators, on this and other blogs, doing is using the same keywords over and over again. I reckon it’s pretty safe to say that noticing all these sites using the exact same keywords would set alarm bells ringing when the GoogleBots come to spider those sites.  :thumbs_down: I mean honestly, do you really think that everybody linking to a particular site would use the exact keywords?  :hey_you:

How I’m Utilising The 2 Assumptions

In promoting my post on how not to lose money in the stock market I’m ensuring that I take the above two assumptions into consideration. This is because that particular post is using one of the WordPress plugins that  I spoke of in my post about Turning Your Blog Into A Cash Machine.

I know it’s going to take more time if I’m going to do things properly but I’m fine about that because that post will only produce an income if I get targeted traffic and that won’t happen if I rush things. This means not using my other blogs to link to that post all at once as I would normally do. Instead I am spacing those posts apart so as to look more natural to the GoogleBots.

The same applies to my commenting regime. Rather than hitting a huge amount of blogs on a daily basis I’m scaling back a lot which allows me to spend more time on some of those comments allowing for better comments which has the added advantage of building my reputations as a good commentator.

Also when commenting on those blogs that use KeyWord Luv or CommentLuv Premium, I make sure that I don’t always use the same keywords, taking note of assumption #2. Having said that I am making sure that although I am using different keywords they are still all related to the topic in question, saving money by not making mistakes on the stock market. I’m hoping that building these types of backlinks will appear more natural resulting in a better SEO result leading to a more targeted traffic resulting in more money in my pocket.  :drunk_tb:

Learning How To Use Market Samurai

This is just going to be a short post about how far I’ve gotten with Market Samurai. Let’s just say that the answer to that is not very far, I’ve yet to fire it up, because I’ve been swamped with other things. Still having said that I have taken a bit of time to visit the Samurai Dojo.

The Dojo is the training facility where you learn all about keyword research and how to use Market Samurai. Not being the most technically minded person I’m happy to say they keep it very simple. Although they have instructional videos I much prefer to use the written video transcripts as it allows me to absorb it in my own time.

I just want to share with you something that I feel is very important when marketing your niche.

[highlight]Do You Know Your Niche’s Language?[/highlight]

I think this is very important because the knowledge may help you to target your niche with greater success than your competitors. In the dojo they used three examples, weddings, World Of Warcraft and golf citing words that others would not normally use but would be significant to those searching for products in those niches.

Let’s use our own example to illustrate the point. Let’s say that we had a niche site that sold mag wheels. I’d say that most people would use mag wheels, hot mag wheels or sporty mag wheels as their keywords. I think it’s safe to say that Mag Wheels as a keyword would be one that most people would use and so it would be pretty hard to rank on the first page of search engines for that term. Well what if you were to use fully sic wheels? Not one of the results on the first page were from anyone using this combination of words as their keywords. So if you were to target those words it wouldn’t be relatively easy to get on the top 10!

Of course the question one has to ask is how many people would use that combination of words because it’s also important to target words that people will use because that’s the only way to get traffic.

So, for all of those of you with niche blogs, have you considered your niche’s particular language?

Testing Market Samurai’s Keyword Research Tool

There has been a particular product that I’ve seen a lot of reviews about all over the net, and I wouldn’t be in the least surprised if you’ve seen them as well. I’m talking about Market Samurai and yes that is an affiliate link that will allow you to download a free copy so you can test it for yourself.

So, even though I’ve been hearing for ages about how all ‘these first-time internet marketing “newbies” who have been using this TOP SECRET Market Samurai software to easily capture front-page rankings, traffic and sales in their first few weeks online’, why have I waited until now to purchase the software?

Well you see things are finally starting to change around here. By the end of next week I will be out of work, after being self employed for some thirty odd years. While I’m not going into details, let’s just say that the payout figure was nowhere near what I needed to retire, and while I will be taking some time off for a long deserved rest I will need to find another source of income, and I figured why not blogging?

You guys all know how, although I’ve always known about the importance of keyword research I’ve never really applied it because I believed it would spoil my blogging experience. Well what if Market Samurai can do all the hard work for me, then I would have the best of both worlds.

You may be wondering why I purchased it rather than just trialling it for seven days. Well for one thing I’m still working and I knew I didn’t have time to run it through it’s paces and the other thing is that I didn’t want to miss out on the 35% savings for getting in early. If I let the trial expire I would have paid $149 instead of $97. The other reason is that to be an affiliate you have to own the software first, and I figured why take the chance of lost sales just for the sake of a few lousy bucks.

In case you haven’t heard of Market Samurai, it’s a keyword research tool that promises the following.

  • TOP RANKINGS in Search Engines
  • Finds the most PROFITABLE KEYWORDS
  • It will show you what it will take to DOMINATE YOUR COMPETITORS…

And believe me the Internet being the size that it is there’s a whole lot of competition out there so it’s a good idea to get the edge on them whenever you can. If you’re interested in future updates you may want to subscribe to the blog. Better still why not take the free trial and join me in the journey to what I hope will be financial freedom.
