Okay, so the big question this week seems to be
“How Can I Get Quality Backlinks to My Website?”.
There are a lot of tools and programs around that promise amazing things in terms of backlinks. If you’re looking to improve your search engine ranking over the long term, it’s easy to be tempted by promises of “automation”, “relevant links”, “instant results”, etc.
Should you use Search Engine Ranking Software to automate the process?
In my opinion, it’s difficult (or nearly impossible) to automate quality backlinks to your website by using a software program. Social bookmarking may get your website indexed in the search engines quickly, but the power of social bookmarking is not long term. For long term success, you need a large number of quality, relevant links back to your site.
I’m happy for someone out there to prove me wrong. But so far, I have only seen positive results from hard work, quality content, and a few little search engine ranking tricks to help me along the way.
“What litte search engine ranking tricks?”, I hear you ask?
I use a 3 phase process instead of Search Engine Ranking software.
STEP ONE – MARKET ANALYSIS & KEYWORD RESEARCH
I use Market Samurai to track my own website’s search engine ranking and the websites I am competing against for a particular keyword phrase. If you click here, you will visit the “Dojo” area of the Noble Samurai website where you can watch videos which explain exactly what this software can do for you – including analyzing the links to your competitors sites! Seriously – you can see what sites link to your competitors, you can then go and get similar backlinks for yourself!
STEP TWO – QUALITY CONTENT
For my affiliate websites, I buy article packs from http://EasyPLR.com – I use these articles to produce high quality, unique content on all my sites. Specifically, I buy a pack of articles, re-write them and publish them as unique articles in the next step in my process. I am always in search of high quality articles and I have never been disappointed with these guys. PLR (Private Label Rights) articles are fantastic because it gives me something to start with. It’s hard work writing interesting articles, and for about $1 each, I get a fabulous head start from EasyPLR – Yes, Please!
STEP THREE – DISTRIBUTE CONTENT
Article Marketing Automation – Once I have a unique article with at least two links back to my website, I submit it using Article Marketing Automation. I use this service to hand spin the article myself (which takes awhile), but I am always pleased with the results. They then publish unique copies of my article on blogs relevant to my topic over a period of time. This is fantastic because it looks natural, the links are relevant to the topic of my site, and I can obtain over 200 relevant backlinks from every article!
This is my 3 phase process which (so far) has eliminated any need for Search Engine Ranking software. I know this is an ongoing process, and new tools and software are released every day.

Do you have questions about Pay Per Click advertising?
So many people seem baffled about PPC advertising. Everywhere I go it seems people are losing money on PPC ads. Is this you? Are you struggling to break even or find success with your PPC ads? Don’t worry! You’re not alone! And there is help available.
As you may know, my PPC journey began about this time last year. And I have to say that I LOVE PPC!! This year, I have devoted almost every waking hour of my life to learning the business of Pay Per Click marketing online. This in no way makes me an expert. However, I do know some things, and I’d love to share what I know here with all of you who may be just starting out.
Where do you find real help with PPC?
I am a strong advocate of learning your trade properly. For that reason, I recommend you take a good look at the high quality training sites that are around. I am a member of most of these forums. There are a few ads for my favorite forums over on the right hand side of this page. If you click on one of those ads and join a forum, I will earn a small commission for referring you to the site.
I will always refer you to these forums if you are serious about learning how to use PPC to earn an income. I don’t mind if you don’t want to use my referral link – that’s totally up to you. I truly believe that is the best way for you to really learn a new skill.
Private questions? Tweet Me!
Also, if you have a private question, and you don’t feel comfortable asking here in the comments, please feel free to send me an email, or a “tweet” using the little boxes up there on the right and I will do my best to help you.
Some questions I have been asked recently:
- Does Yahoo still allow polls for CPA offers?
- How many ads to I need to test a campaign?
- Is Yahoo a total waste of time for PPC?
- I have been slapped from Google, what are my options?
- Where is the best place to learn Facebook advertising?

I recently had the opportunity to be interviewed by Lynn Terry of ClickNewz.com and Self Starters Weekly Tips. Lynn is a full time internet marketer with over 13 years experience in this industry. She’s fun, interesting, and full of great, practical advice for internet marketers!
I was first introduced to Lynn through the “Internet Marketing This Week” podcast. I love listening to this podcast and recommend it if you’re interested in the bigger picture of what’s happening in our industry. I contacted Lynn on Twitter which led to me joining in the discussions at her Elite Mastermind Forum (which is just awesome, by the way!).
I thought you might enjoy listening in to our chat. It was so much fun!

I have a friend who is brand new to internet marketing. She has “zero” skills. I really want to help her succeed online, but there is only so much I can do. I can tell her what I have learned, she can read various blogs, she can join a paid membership forum, but in the end – she is on her own to figure so many things out herself. This raises a good question:
“Where does a total newbie go to learn the very basic skills of internet marketing?”
This friend of mine stumbled across a free program called “The Thirty Day Challenge” and I have to say, it looks promising. At first glance, it seems they show brand new internet marketers how to do market research, find profitable keywords, set up a wordpress blog, and drive traffic to the blog. Now, I haven’t participated in this program, and I am very eager to hear from people who have.
What did you think? Did you have good results? Do you think this is a good program for newbies? Why? or Why not?
