“If RSS is the Yahoo backdoor, is a Blog Google’s?”

Written by Tinu Abayomi-Paul

Thoughrepparttar answer is in a book I wrote this July,repparttar 128263 question is still asked of me repeatedly. Why does it work for some sites and not others? And how come some blogs get indexed in a day and then are dropped, and others stay in Google indefinitely?

Well, let’s take one question at a time. The answer to whether you can blog your way into Google search results is yes, sometimes in six weeks, often in 24 hours.

Yes, you read right, in less than 24 hours. Under certain conditions,repparttar 128264 search engines actually want you to succeed at this.

I’m aware that these statements may cause some controversy, but that won’t make them any less factual. Since September, Google has been set up to show you proof of this, which we’ll go over in part two. My new blog has been spidered daily sincerepparttar 128265 day it was created.

Not only is this possible with your blog,repparttar 128266 way that blogs are set up make them one ofrepparttar 128267 most conducive web site mediums to attract more traffic from multiple sources quickly. The trick to getting this to work for you, is in understanding which conditions have to be met first.

And we’ll come back to that shortly. First let’s talk about what’s typically wrong withrepparttar 128268 process most people take to get their sites listed.

Most people submit their sites to Google and wait six to eight weeks to see if they were included. Other people know thatrepparttar 128269 fastest way to be spidered is to leave your link at a site that is already getting spidered.

But even among those people, when they don’t see their site in Google exactlyrepparttar 128270 way they’d like, they give up, and say it didn’t work.

So what went wrong?

The place thatrepparttar 128271 majority of people go wrong is in trying to trickrepparttar 128272 Googlebot into thinking their site matches its standards for inclusion for their desired high traffic keyword, instead of aligning themselves withrepparttar 128273 purpose thatrepparttar 128274 search engine fills.

You may think that if you study allrepparttar 128275 search engine tricks, you’ll haverepparttar 128276 traffic fromrepparttar 128277 search engines and it will then follow that yours will berepparttar 128278 site people come to forrepparttar 128279 keyword they want, which in turn, will get 1% of those people to buy what’s at your site.

If you think that, I’m not here to tell you that you’re wrong - sometimes that works. I’m just saying that there are other easier, faster, less expensive ways. Some of them only have subtle differences fromrepparttar 128280 way you know.

The truth is, even if we could somehow reverse engineerrepparttar 128281 secret Google algorithm, it periodically changes. So mastering that system would be temporary, even if you could do it.

Did you know that you don’t even needrepparttar 128282 traffic for your most desired keyword to be successful? You just need some targeted traffic that converts well. Some ofrepparttar 128283 most financially successful sites generate amazing profits inrepparttar 128284 tens or hundreds of thousands with a few hundred or thousand visitors every month.

The method I most suggest torepparttar 128285 kind of search engine results that can power those kinds of sales, is aligning your site withrepparttar 128286 purposerepparttar 128287 search engine wants to fill. It is faster, more effective and involves far less effort.
