SEO 101 – the basics of how to get to the top of the search enginesWritten by Rob Rawson
Continued from page 1
How do I submit my site to search engines? My personal philosophy is that if your site is not found naturally by following links then it is unlikely to rank in search engines - I don’t usually bother submitting to search engines. So that’s basics of how to get to top of search engines. We’ll have a look at more advanced stuff later on. It takes a lot of time knowledge and dedication to get there but once you master it, SEO is a fantastic way to gettraffic and make money on web.
www.profitpuppy.com How to get visitors for 5 cents in pay per click search engines when most people are paying 57 cents Pay per click search engines are a great way to generate traffic. The problem is that most of good keywords cost 50 cents or more. Here's how you can get traffic for much much less.
By Rob Rawson This article is divided into two sections - How to get clicks for 5 cents with Google pay per click & How to get clicks for 5 cents with Overture pay per click.
I'm assuming that you understand basics of how pay-per-click advertising works, and that you understand how Google and Overture work. If you need more information on basics check out http://www.profitpuppy.com/pay-per-click.htm How to get 5 cent visitors from Google Ok, so let's start with Google. Remember that system for Google is totally different to Overture. We are dealing with Overture and Google on this page because they are ones that are going to drive majority of traffic for you. It is actually much easier to get clicks for 5 cents or even lower at other pay per click search engines, but it is difficult to get very many clicks. Basically secret for Google is to do proper research for your keywords and find every combination of keywords that you can think of. For more information on keyword research visit http://www.profitpuppy.com/keyword-research.htm Let's say for example that you have a site that sells wine. At time of writing, minimum bid on Google for "wine shop" is 57 cents and minimum bid for "buy wine" is 35 cents. And that's just minimum which will likely put you at bottom of list of 8 advertisements and get you very few clicks. Instead, have a look at these combinations of keywords: wine sales wine stores wine sale purchase wine discount wine wine price wine cheap wine shops order wine wine on line wine prices wine club wine cheapest All of above keyword combinations are available for five cents. (Although they might not last long at that price if some wine sites are reading this article!) It doesn't matter what business you are in, there are some keywords or keyword combinations that other people have missed. I have even managed to get clicks for web hosting traffic at 5 cents per click, which is probably most difficult area to get web traffic for. The secret is in coming up with lots of keywords and combinations of keywords. Here are a few more ideas: •Try pleural versions of keyword. •Try different verb forms - make, making etc. •Try combining two keywords into one word without spaces, for example instead of buy car try buycar •Use misspelt words Getting clicks for 5 cents on Overture
With Overture you need a slightly different system of getting low cost per click keywords. Basically for Overture you can only use keyword phrases that appear in http://www.overture.com/d/USm/adcenter/tools/index.jhtml. (Click on link Search Suggestion Tool). For example if you have a site on Bonsai trees, when you put in word Bonsai into search suggestion tool, it give you following results: 42453bonsai 13770bonsai tree 2823bonsai kitten 2169bonsai plant 1356bonsai care and so on ... To get clicks for 5 cents, make sure that you bid for every phrase that applies to your site. That probably won't get you in top 3 listings which is best pace to be. However, even if top bid is 60 cents, and you are listed as number 35 you will still get some clicks just from Overture search engine itself. And for keyword phrases that are right down list, you will often be able to get a number 1, 2 or 3 listing for 5 cents.
