Easy... create webpage, blog and ping, collect the money!

Written by Rudi Ashdown

When I first came acrossrepparttar 'blog and ping' technique a few months ago, I have to say I was a bit unsure of how useful it would be. After all,repparttar 146043 very words 'blog' and 'ping' sound more like something my 5 yr old son would get up to in his school playground! Not a serious business marketing concept, surely? Of course, I've since seenrepparttar 146044 light and have started usingrepparttar 146045 practice - but not torepparttar 146046 same degree as I read some others have. 100's of pages here getting indexed... and thousands of pages there visited byrepparttar 146047 search engine robots.

Aboutrepparttar 146048 same time I started to read aboutrepparttar 146049 fascination with such programs as Directory Generator, Traffic Equaliser and other mass-producing template software. Now, I have huge respect forrepparttar 146050 likes of Armand Morin who produced DG and other top marketers like John Reese who extolrepparttar 146051 benefits of TE, but like so many of these new web techniques, I have my reservations. Here's my take...

Google, Yahoo, MSN et al aren't blind.Nor are they philanthropic! People search online for information. Period. Yes some then get their wallets out and make a purchase butrepparttar 146052 initial activity is to seek out information to solverepparttar 146053 surfers’ problems, desires and curiosities. 'Information is king' is still true.

So if what people get when they click onrepparttar 146054 links in these search engines is a mass produced site with just a whole load more listings withrepparttar 146055 occasional rss-feed that's appeared on more sites than Anna Kournikova, surely surfers (searchers) are going to get hacked off and look forrepparttar 146056 information elsewhere. Which will eventually mean lost revenue forrepparttar 146057 SE. A page with yet more links isn't information! And most ofrepparttar 146058 rss feeds are not unique and in some cases are not even relevant torepparttar 146059 original search query. Butrepparttar 146060 thing that worries me most about these 'AdSense-laden' copycat sites is that they leave footprints - that is because they are a template,repparttar 146061 html code is identical in layout for all of them.

Surely,repparttar 146062 big SE's are going to start wising up. If you produce 5,000 webpages and blast them intorepparttar 146063 search engines usingrepparttar 146064 blog and ping method (or any other submission technique) - isn't that akin to spamming? No one doubts that Google andrepparttar 146065 rest ofrepparttar 146066 SE's haverepparttar 146067 technology to detect if a page is made with one of these programs. My guess is when enough of their customers (the web-searching general public) start complaining that all their results return are pages of identical listings andrepparttar 146068 odd out-dated snippet (if they're lucky), these DR and TE generated sites are going to get dropped quicker than a bandicoot on nandrolone!
