Internet Income

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

To avoid the inherent obsolescence that preys upon any attempt to capture the workings of the Internet, the Internet Income Course has attempted to deal with lasting concepts. In this second lesson of the final section of the course, we continue to remind you of some of the most important lasting principles that have been highlighted and explained during this course.

LASTING PRINCIPLES OF AN EVER-CHANGING INTERNET

Keywords

No discussion of the lasting principles of Internet Marketing is complete without coverage of keywords and key phrases. We began this discussion in the previous lesson and continue it here. While it is correctly stated that the search engines rely less and less on the keywords contained in metatags, keywords remain integral to the process of developing your content nonetheless. Effective content development always involves the process of choosing the right words and the right combination of words to best express your thoughts. Notwithstanding that search engines may now largely ignore your metatag keywords, it still makes sense to create them and place them in the metatags as well as the content of your site. Search engines must, of course, search the content of your site. That is how they work. Integrating key words that you expect to show up in searches into your site’s content, if done correctly, will always be a viable strategy. Thus, we review in some detail here the process of creating and using keywords for your Website.

Developing your list of keywords and key phrases is the first step in the final design of your Website. To develop your list of key words and key phrases, you need to define your target market. Defining your target market involves a process of elimination and a process of inclusion. Decide who will not be interested in your site and decide who specifically will be interested. Think of the words that your target market will likely search for on the search engines. Think of the words that will exclude the disinterested.

The process of generating keywords is both creative and critical. You have to be creative initially to come up with as many words as possible. Starting by analyzing your target market, you then use that starter list to generate many more potential keywords by reducing your starter list to the root words and finding as many derivatives and synonyms as you can for these words. Next, by using index cards for each root word and laying them out in various orders, you find as many key phrases as you can from these words. You try to order your words so that each word can be a part of at least two different phrases, due to its relationship to the words before it and the words after it. Finally, you critically cull down your list of keywords and key phrases by checking them against actual search engine traffic statistics and eliminating the ones that will draw little or no traffic. You are now ready to type in the title, description, and keywords metatags, as well as the comment tag, for each section and page of your site.

In creating your final content, keep it simple. Keep your pages short and to the point. Don’t obsess with it, but be mindful of keyword-density, cross-linking, and outbound-linking issues and their effect on search engine ranking. Let your primary guide be to create a useful and informative page to the persons who will be reading it. Carefully and economically include your payoff links–no more than one per page–and keep them on topic with your content as much as possible.

Advertising – Free Ads

Free online advertising can work for affiliate marketers provided they are properly prepared and the process is approached correctly. To be prepared, you need to have an effective ad, you need a target URL to which the ad will point, and you need to be prepared for the posting process. This includes having a secondary e-mail account and a tracking system in place. Finally, you need to understand the process of finding effective locations to place your ads.

Finding locations on which to place free ads is a continuing process. Nothing worthwhile is entirely easy, but it can be a fun and rewarding process if you apply a little creativity. Put yourself in the shoes of people you are trying to reach. Anticipate what they will search for on the search engines. Search with those same terms and look for sites in the results that allow you to place free ads. Stay focused and keep the process moving. Keep notes of anything interesting you find that would be too time consuming now and come back to it later. Look at the links on sites for an indication whether they allow free advertising. Do not confuse free ads with reciprocal links–they are somewhat different animals. In coming up with search terms to use, be creative and use your imagination.

Blogs

The emergence of Blogs in the late 1990′s as a new form of Internet publishing was exciting for a number of reasons. Blogs, by providing a form of expression that easily integrates with other sources and other perspectives, marked an evolutionary step in the progress of the Internet. Blogs, when used properly, can be an effective e-commerce tool. Appropriately placed affiliate links, flowing from the context of the Blog entries, can be a powerful marketing tool. With WordPress becoming one of the most popular content creation tools, Blogs have by now (late 2013) become almost synonymous with Web pages.

In-Context Link Placement

An individual working from home with limited resources can do something very powerful. You can create the need for the product and close the sale all at the same place and the same time. By placing direct product links to Tripleclick products in a manner that brings those products to life, you can effectively sell products and build an income with the SFI affiliate program at the same time.

The trick is to work the discussion of the product into your content. Google now claims to look for and penalize this type of link placement, but its effectiveness outweighs that concern in our opinion. If done professionally, with the primary design goal being to provide useful information, this strategy should continue to work indefinitely.

Be Efficient

To be profitable, you should take a systematic approach to Internet Marketing. Being systematic means counting, measuring, and comparing what goes into your system; how it flows through your system; and the return that flows out of your system. It means, as much as anything, paying close attention to what you are doing and what is happening as a result of your efforts. If you are not getting the results you desire, identify the part of your system that is failing to perform to expectation and then fine tune it. Always strive to fine tune your entire system to achieve greater efficiency. An efficient system is the key. Brilliance is not required. Luck is not required. Efficiency is required.

Understand Information Processing

In order to reveal and understand the lasting principles, we have often turned to science and the underlying technology to provide the background for an effective approach to Internet Marketing. You can obtain useful insight by reflecting on how information and information processing plays a vital role in every aspect of our lives. To be truly successful in business, you must take time to reflect upon the information processing skills that you employ in your business. To be truly successful in an Internet-based business, you must take time to think about the information retrieval systems that form the foundation of the Internet. To become a true search engine expert, you must have some understanding of the information retrieval techniques upon which the search engines are based. Some familiarity with the science of information retrieval that drives these developments is well worth a little time and effort also.

Understanding Databases

The more efficiently we process information, the more successful we will be. Database applications are much more efficient than word processing applications for dealing with certain types of information. Database applications are very useful tools to store, organize, process and retrieve structured similar information (such as records of our products or records of our prospects). Using ODBC and SQL, we can share database information across other networks. Additional applications such as ColdFusion or PHP allow us to share and work with database information on the Internet. As we determine our information processing needs, we can design tables to record the characteristics that are important for each item in the records that we need to keep. When necessary to avoid duplication of data, we can create additional tables that relate back to records in our primary table by using primary and foreign keys. We use forms to input data and reports to retrieve and sort the data. For our reports to be accurate, we must input the data accurately into the database. Our reports can retrieve and sort data in numerous ways depending upon our needs at the time. Database applications can make us much more efficient in running our businesses.

Searching Text

Some familiarity with basic concepts of Information Retrieval Science can help you to perform better searches as well as help you better optimize your own Website. You should explore and experiment with the advanced search features of the major search engines, such as Yahoo! and Google. Identify the keywords you are targeting with your Website and experiment with different searches using these keywords. Examine the pages that rank high in the results of your searches. See if you can calculate keyword density, term weight, and keyword co-occurrence for the pages that rank high in your searches.

Remember that keyword density is a measure of the concentration of the use of a word on a page. Term Weight is a measure of the use of a word in one document to the use of the word in all other documents in the collection. Term Weight can be used to rank documents with relation to a particular search. Term Co-occurrence is a measure of how often words appear together in a particular document with respect to how often those words usually appear together. It is another way to test the relevancy of a document to a particular keyword used in a search. Understanding how searches work behind the scenes is important to Internet Marketing.

CONCLUSION

In this lesson, the second in the final section on lasting principles, we have revisited Keywords, Free Advertising, Blogs, In-Context Link Placement, Efficiency, and Information Science, including databases and text searching. These are strategies that have always been, and will always be, important. While the details may change, the principles should remain the same.

WHAT’S COMING NEXT

In our next lesson we will continue highlighting important lasting principles of Internet Marketing.

Supporting the victims of Typhoon Haiyan

With the details still coming out about the terrible devastation in the Philippines, SFI wishes to extend our support and empathy to all survivors in that area. We will be making a sizable corporate donation to Donate to the Philippines – unicefusa.org? and encourage all our affiliates to donate what they can to this or other reputable relief organization involved with helping in the aftermath.

Nearly 90,000 of our affiliate family are located in the Philippines and we’re sure that many have been affected by this terrible storm. If you have team members who live in the Philippines, please get in contact with them as soon as you can to provide moral support and assistance while they get back on their feet. We will also be waiving, for all Philippines affiliates, November’s requirement of maintaining EA status to retain your CSAs. Support tickets can be submitted for other matters related to this effort.

Let’s all keep our Philippine affiliates and their friends and families in our thoughts and hearts as they work to put this devastation behind them.

Lesson #84—Content Remains King

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

In this lesson, we will discuss the history of Google’s page rank algorithm updates. We will see that the only lasting strategy to good search engine placement is to create quality sites with interesting content. The many tricks and devices touted by so many over the years have often backfired. The only secret to a good Web presence is to concentrate on creating good quality content and a comfortable user experience.
SOME GENERAL HISTORY

Leland Stanford, Jr., the son of a California governor, died of typhoid fever two months before his 16th birthday. In 1891, his father and mother founded a private research university in his memory. Stanford University, built in what is now known as Silicon Valley near Palo Alto, California, housed one of the original four computers on the ARPNET (the network that became the Internet) and has become one of the most prestigious universities in the world.

In 1938, Milton Sirotta, a nine-year old boy at the time, upon being asked by his uncle, the renowned mathematician Edward Kasner, for a word to describe the number one followed by a hundred zeros, coined the word “Googol.”

At Stanford University in 1995, 21-year-old Sergey Brin received his assignment as orientation advisor for 22-year-old Larry Page. The two young men found little in common upon first meeting. Within a year, however, they were working together on a search engine project called “BackRub.” It was an effective way to search and access the voluminous information that had found its way into the Internet. In 1997, Brin and Page renamed the search engine “Google.”

An investor was found; an employee was hired; and Google, Inc. began with three young men working from a garage to improve and market the Google search engine. Soon after, the company moved into an office. A very large Leonberger dog, named Yoshka, became the official company dog.

The first named update to the Google search ranking algorithm came in 2002. It was called Boston.

In August 2004, Google went public on the stock market. Yoshka remained the company’s top dog; but, being a dog, owned no stock. His humans owned quite a bit, though. The original price of a share of stock was $85. At the time of this writing in August 2013, a share is worth $878. Yoshka had a good life.

Leland, Milton, Sergey, Larry, and Yoshka are all part of the history of what is arguably the most important company in the world today. It controls, to a great extent, what is seen and what is not seen on the Internet. It exercises this control through its ranking algorithms—omputer code that determines what shows up where when someone searches on Google for a particular word or phrase.


H
ISTORY OF GOOGLE RANKING ALGORITHMS

The next algorithm update after Boston came in April 2003 and was called Cassandra. Cassandra came down hard on massive linking from co-owned domains and hidden text. In April 2003, the Dominic update made Google more picky with the backlinks it counted. In June of 2003, Esmerelda made further changes that no one could really ascertain from the outside. In November 2003, an update called Florida began to penalize keyword stuffing. Austin, in January 2004, expanded Florida to metatags and made other changes to refine identification of deceptive on-page tactics. Brandy in February 2004, began to use semantics and synonyms to refine keyword analysis and incorporated the concept of neighborhoods to better analyze linking patterns. In January 2005, Google gave some control to Webmasters by recognizing the NoIndex/Nofollow attribute.

With the Allegra update in February 2005, the first suspicions arose that Google was penalizing certain linking strategies. In May 2005, Bourbon made some technical changes regarding duplicate content and the importance given to the presence or absence of www in a URL. In June 2005, Google gave some more control to Webmasters by creating XML sitemaps via Webmaster Tools, bypassing traditional HTML sitemaps. In the same month, Google began to personalize search results. No longer was the ranking seen by one the same as the rankings seen by others. In October 2005, Google integrated local maps data into the search index. In October 2005, Jagger created penalties for reciprocal links, link farms, and paid links. In December of 2005, with the Big Daddy update, Google made some changes to how certain technical things (like canonicalization, re-directs, etc.) were treated.

A few other update names floated around, but the next major change came in August 2008, when Google began providing suggestions as you typed your search. In February 2009, the Vince update seemed to help major brands. Also in February 2009, Google provided a great tool that allowed Web developers to clean up their sites organization without losing ranking. (The rel-canonical tag allowed site developers to tell the Google index a better, preferred, new location for the same page, so that the ranking for the old link could be redirected to the new.) In December 2009, Google provided faster and better integration of social media postings into its results. In 2010, Google Places provided more local advertising options and provided greater integration of places pages with local results.

In May 2010, the May Day update had a significant negative impact on long-tail traffic. (Long-tail keywords are search phrases containing several words. With a long search phrase one can be more specific about what is being sought or offered. While appropriately using long keyword phrases is a good thing in the eyes of the search engines, attempting to manipulate them to corner traffic to be switched to other offerings is considered bad—and was penalized by May Day.) In June 2010, Google implemented a new indexing system, called Caffeine, which is able to index an extremely large number of links much faster. In August 2010, the Brand Update allowed specific URLs to appear more often in the results. In September 2010, with Google Instant, Google started displaying results even before the search was submitted, which affected the ultimate results of a search effort, favoring established sites. In November 2010, Google placed emphasis on landing page quality by providing a magnified preview on mouse-over of a search engine result listing.

In December 2010, an e-commerce site located in New York City got a great deal of attention publicly bragging that bad reviews from customers (that it admitted cheating and abusing) upped it ranks in the search engines. To counter, Google immediately reacted with an algorithm update to sort out positive reviews from negative reviews.

In January 2011, Google began with a vengeance to promote good user experience for those using its search engine. A major strategy was to penalize black hat SEO tactics. It studied particular sites that were successfully manipulating search results and incorporated better ways to prevent their tactics from working.

Starting in February 2011, the updates became too frequent and numerous to name them all. For the most part, they started falling under the umbrella name of Panda. The main goal of all the Panda updates is to improve user experience while searching, primarily by preventing low quality, low information sites from being ranked high in the search results. If you have ever searched for local information and been led to national sites that have no local information for your area (which you only discovered after drilling down for several minutes, being exposed to numerous irrelevant ads in the process), you can understand why it was necessary for Google devote so much effort to this task. That negative search experience, which I have unfortunately encountered several times, creates user dissatisfaction with the search engine. To keep its place at the top of the Internet, Google had to provide better results for its users.

Another major focus of the original release of Panda was to eliminate Scrapers from the search results. Scrapers are sites that republish the content of other sites. There are degrees of scraping. Some sites just flat out steal copyrighted content and republish it as their own. Other sites republish it with a link to the original content buried at the bottom. Still others, do not republish the content in entirety, but give snippets and then link to the original content. The former mentioned sites are flat out illegal. These latter sites are not necessarily illegal or even bad—if they help to organize information by including several snippets and links to widespread content dealing with the same subject. The latter sites are frustrating to searchers, though, if they just create extra pages and extra ads that have to be negotiated to arrive at the original content sought. Sorting out the useful sites that aggregate information from the manipulative and frustrating sites (that only ultimately serve to hide information behind multiple advertisements) is a daunting task for Google.

Penguin, another update name that showed up late in 2012, carries on with the Panda objectives…with a little less focus on user experience and more focus on discovering black hat practices at work and eliminating their effectiveness. Penguin allows, through specific form pages, for feedback from users when they discover offending sites or if they believe a good site has been wrongly penalized.

Google posted a blog with the first Panda release. The article listed the questions you should ask to determine if your site is a quality site. Their conclusion, as well as their warning to Webmasters, was that you should concentrate entirely on making your site a quality site, rather than concentrating on SEO techniques.

Over two years of comments on that article express the frustration of Webmasters in attempting to deal with that advice. In short, the Webmasters complain that low quality sites that use manipulative techniques still show up high in the rankings, while high quality sites go down in the rankings. They suggest to Google that the way to eliminate black hat SEO is to stop allowing it to be successful. Some Webmasters, no doubt, are frustrated because they have low quality sites. Others, though, with high quality sites, still do not get the ranking they deserve. Frustrated Webmasters from both camps accuse Google of rewarding its partners and those that use Google ads, while paying little real attention to recognizing high quality sites and improving their rankings. They accuse Google of just being a big business whose only interest is making money—an unfair monopoly.

I suspect the truth lies somewhere in between what Google is saying and what its detractors are saying, hopefully more toward what Google is saying. In any event, the takeaway from this long history of ranking algorithms is that most entrepreneurs and small businesses are really not positioned to have the knowledge and the skill to game the Google results in the long run. Some of the shortcuts and manipulations that have been posted throughout the years may work for a while, but none of them work in the long run. The advantage of any highly touted manipulative SEO strategy can be wiped out at any time, without notice, by any new Google update. Plus, you can get penalized at any time for having used it.


C
ONCLUSION

In the many lessons written over the many years of this course, I have, for the most part, steered away from detailed discussion of manipulative SEO tricks and tactics. At times, I worried when I saw so many other Internet marketing writers dealing with it in such detail; but from the present vantage point, I am glad that I did not follow suit. Instead, I have concentrated on the general principle that you should strive to create a site that is original, informative, and easy to use. That is what Google now insists is the only thing with which you should be concerned.

There are, of course, technical things that you need to know even when taking that approach. Those technical things change over time. As stated often in this course, the Internet changes constantly. Technology changes. Technical issues come and go. Business and society change. Historical events trigger a direction, but in the evolution of the journey, change is constant. In our next and final lesson for this course, we will identify some of the few lasting principles that have not changed—emergent principles that arise from nature and direct the course of inevitable change, while remaining constant and true to themselves. From Leland Stanford, Jr.’s untimely death to modern day e-commerce a picture is painted—unchanging principles directing a changing technology. Understanding these principles builds a foundation that can withstand the constant change in methods and specifics.

This lesson has been about one of those principles: Content is King.

Making Money With Pricebenders Penny Auctions

  Making Money With
    Pricebenders Penny Auctions

With Pricebenders penny auctions, you could get a product for a steal. It is also great for buying gifts; your friends would love to get Samsung S5830 Galaxy Ace? Well, they are lucky, because you can get it for a hamburger and coke. Check out the latest winners.

(By the way, wanna bet your friends will give you more expensive gift for your next birthday than they have planned?)
 
But, for the sake of this website’s name, I must tell you how to earn with penny auctions, or, how to earn buying!
 
Everyone loves good deal. And the great thing about penny auctions is that you can get really hot and expensive products for next to nothing! And you can easily give people a good deal, don’t you think? You can:
  • post your winnings on normal auctions website (like eBay);
  • sell your winnings to your acquaintances;
  • list your winnings on classifieds;
  • sell your winnings on TripleClicks itself;
  • use any other selling technique which works for you.
 
TripleClicks allows you to pay for your winning within 30 days; that is more than enough time to sell it first. After you’ve sold it, simply go to TripleClicks, pay your winning price and tell them to deliver it to your buyer directly. And don’t forget to mention free shipping to your prospects! So, if you win Samsung Galaxy for $4.66 (check out the 07/19 winners), you can sell it for $250 or even more; that is a great deal for your customer and a healthy income for you!
 
If you need a new hobby, Pricebenders is perfect for you. It is funny and exciting, and it will pay a vacation for you and your family. But, do you know you can make living bidding?
 
If you want to do that, I strongly recommend you to buy 200 TCredits packs. Bidding with free TCredits is a great thing, but getting 200+ free TCredits is time consuming. And time = money. It doesn’t mean you should forget about free TCredits, though. Free TCredits are good TCredits. Or, as Capt’n Jack Sparrow says: “Take what you can, give nothing back”. Just keep in mind; in order to make living with penny auctions, you should start bidding now, and not in 2 months. How much do you value your 2 months?
 
Bidding on penny auctions is so-called “working from home” or “working online”. And working from home has some great benefits:
  • flexible hours;
  • being able to wear what you want;
  • less distractions;
  • no wasting time in traffic jams;
  • people are generally more productive at their homes.
But, in spite of this, over 90% of people never make any money working online. And that ain’t their fault! Internet is full of blogs and courses and gurus, but yet, no one says that:
  • with PTC websites DonkeyMails.com: No Minimum Payout and Pricebenders Penny Auctions and many others) you can earn only few cents per day, unless you have an army of referrals;
  • matrix and hyip websites are usually scams and they are illegal in some countries;
  • forex is a gamble, and the odds are not on your side;
  • Internet Marketing requires months of work before you actually start earning; no matter do you sell your own product or work as an affiliate.


Many people quit just days or weeks before making any money online. Because no one has ever told them
I am telling you now. PTC and Internet Marketing require big investments of time and money, and I would never recommend forex and  hyips. But, with Pricebenders penny auctions you can start earning after only 2 weeks, and it doesn’t require big investments. I said 2 weeks, because I don’t recommend you to start bidding without observing auctions first 2 weeks. Just don’t overdo it! Education is important, and you should read about auctions as much as possible, and observe as many auctions as you feel, but you can’t earn if you don’t make an action! And that is another point where many people fail: they are prepared, educated, know what they should do, but never actually do that! You can’t earn without action. And can’t defeat your fears without it.
 
I can also guarantee you’ll not win every auction. And if anyone tries to sell you course “how to win every single penny auction” or something like that, don’t fall for it.
 
However, I gave you more than enough of knowledge to help you achieve 10 big winnings per month. 10 auctions which will cover all your costs and loses and earn you more money than “normal, office work”. If you still doubt, just check the latest winners.
 
Happy bidding and have fun!
Will Stewart
 
 
P.S. TripleClicks members are also awarded with 5 or 10 MRP per bid; no matter do they win or lose an auction. You can buy any product you like with MRP. You can buy TCredits and win an auction or you can buy product and sell it for cash. With Pricebenders, you can’t lose.
 
P.P.S. There is no risk to sign up; it is free and you can check things out in detail before ever bidding!
