Method To Get One-Way Backlinks

Here is a method to get some one-way backlinks that works pretty well. You need to get a secondary site. Set up something simple and contact other webmasters to trade links (reciprocal links). It can be from a different niche. Put all the links ********, it doesn ‘t matter.
After a few reciprocal links (10~30) we need to redirect our secondary site to our main site. We will use a 301 redirect. But we will only redirect search engines, not normal users. This way you can continue with the reciprocal links and the other webmasters will not remove the backlinks.
Use this code on the top of the PHP file(s) to redirect all the backlinks to your main site (don ‘t forget to change your link):
if (preg_match("#(google|slurp@inktomi|yahoo! slurp|msnbot)#si", $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'])) {

    header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently");
    header("Location: http://www.your-main-site.com/");

Now you will have one-way backlinks to your main site. Google will redirect the link juice to the main site and will not crawl the backlinks of the other webmasters on the secondary site.
Some notes:
- you can use a better script to do that.
- I believe that the secondary site will have the same pagerank after the redirection (or the actualization of pagerank).
- It ‘s easier to trade links on niches like games, porno etc. Keep that in mind, your goal is to trade many links.
- you can redirect before the first backlinks, but I think this works better this way

10 Untapped Traffic Sources


Reviewing my blog’s poll results (see on the right), I’ve noticed that most of my loyal readers are interested in traffic generation sources. And that’s no suprise, knowing that traffic=money:)
Instead of covering well-known sources like SEO, video marketing, article marketing which probably you already know anyway, I’ve decided to take a look at 27 completely different (untapped) type of traffic sources that is working very well for me. So, if you are ready, let’s dive into it:
dive into it:
1. Image/Photo Sharing
There are many image sharing sites, such as flickr.com, where you can share your images (in any niche) and include a link to your own site/blog. Here’s a complete list of photo sharing sites you can use: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_photo_sharing_websites
Did you know, that you can share a .doc or .pdf files with your link included inside the document? These doc sharing sites gets a decent amount of traffic and can bring you some nice amount of visitors to your site/blog in a short period of time. Here’s a top 20 document sharing sites:
1. scribd.com
2. docstoc.com
3. slideshare.net
4. crocodoc.com
5. Issuu.com
6. docshare.com
7. wepapers.com
8. myplick.com
10. slidesix.com
11. gotomyfiles.com
12. my.huddle.net
13. twidox.com
14. pex.webexone.com
15. docuter.com
16. slideboom.com
17. authorstream.com
18. slidelive.com
19. slideserve.com
20. slideburner.com
3. ebay.com traffic.
eBay is one of the biggest internet sites on the internet. And as with other big sites out there, there’s always a way to get a slice of that traffic. You can do this by selling reports and e-books you write in your niche (write some useful how-tos and sell them for very low price, the point in this case is the traffic, not the money). Also you can create an about page , where you can put a link to your blog/site.
4. Craiglist.com
Craiglist is the most trafficked classified ad site on the internet. I’ll be honest with you, I haven’t used craiglist yet, however I’ve heard some incredible success stories who cracked the code of craiglist. One thing to keep in mind, that most of the CPA networks don’t accept craiglist traffic, so your best option is to send them to a squeeze page, build a list and then promote stuff through email marketing.
Craiglist traffic can work for any niche: bizz-op, dating, free stuff, local lead gen.. you name it.
You can also try these classified ad sites:
6. Misspelled domain traffic
This goes more into the grey hat area. I’m not doing this nor do I recommend, however I’ll cover this anyway if you want to take a risk:)
Miss-speled traffic is essentially a traffic that comes from missspelled web addresses. For example, there are millions of people everyday typing google.com into the address bar, a small % of these people sometimes make a mistake and put gppgle.com by mistakenly clicking “pp” instead of “oo”. So, if you owned gppgle.com I bet you’d received a great amount of traffic every single day. Get the point?
This is just an example, however you can still use this idea on other websites. Here’s a hint: trending events. Such us popular movies. At this moment when I’m writing this article, The Dark Knight Rises is all over the place. Having this in mind, you can buy all sort of variation domain names: www.darllnight.com, www.darkknoght.com and etc. I’m not 100% guarantee you will see traffic with this, however if the website or the event is super popular, I’ve no doubt you will see some traffic coming in.
7. Coupon traffic
If your business offer coupon codes for your product or services (and I highly recommend you do), don’t forget coupon directories. People love discounts and coupons. Groupon.com is a living example. Make sure you add your coupons to the following coupon/deal of the day directories:
dealofday.com (Forum)
gottadeal.com (Forum)
Above sites are hugely popular and get incredible amount of traffic everyday. Don’t have a coupon code yet? I’m gonna write a whole post on creating a coupon code for your product/service very soon. Coupons are great not just because it increases conversions, but succesfully combining it with social/incentive aspects, your coupon code can go viral at the speed of light.
8. Podcasting traffic
People love video, but they also love audio too. Podcasting is a great way if you are shy in front of the camera and feeling more comfortable talking in to the microphone. Podcasting can be used for any niche. What I like about podcasting is that it highly improves your credibility and authority. Especially if you are interviewed by other person. Very powerful stuff.
feeds4all.com (podcast category)
godcast1000.com (Christian)
rimpodcast.quickplay.ca/rimpodcasting/ (Blackberry)
social.zune.net/podcasts/ (Zune)
9.Tutorial traffic
Tutorials are a HUGE untapped traffic source online. If you have a website related to graphic design, wordpress, web development, SEO, marketing, or programming, then you can use tutorials to send thousands of visitors to your website.
Some of the popular tutorial sites:
Good-tutorials.com (Graphics/Photo/Programming)
Tutorialized.com (Web design and marketing)
tutorial-index.com (photoshop, coding, video, etc)
tutorial-center.com (computer related)
geekpedia.com (Programming)
tutorialsphere.com (web, video, audio, etc)
tutorialsgarden.com (photoshop & coding)
thewebblend.com (Design)
fstutorials.com (Web design)
noupe.com (Graphics related)
(there are dozens more)
10. Ebook traffic
There are plemty free and paid ebook sharing website where you can upload your own eBook.
Here are some of them:
ebookjunkie.com (Free ebooks category)
ebookmall.com (Free ebooks category)
Amazon.com (Kindle version)

The vital Guide to Guest Blogging (collected)

Determine Your Guest Blogging Goals

Before we begin, your first task is to decide what your goal for guest blogging is. Knowing this goal ahead of time is key in determining the right kind of blogs to submit guest posts to. Typically there are three main goals for guest blogging.
  1. Positioning yourself as an authority and well-known name in the industry.
  2. Getting exposure (traffic) back to your website.
  3. Building backlinks to your website.
With the right kind of content on the top blogs, you can do all three of these things. If you are trying to accomplish either #1 or #2, then you will want to find blogs that have a good sized and engaged audience. If you are just trying to accomplish #3, then you need to pinpoint blogs with strong root domain authority. You can check this for free using the SEOmoz toolbar. Knowing your goals in advance will help you in determining which blogs will be the best for you to submit guest posts to.

How to Find Guest Blogging Opportunities

The first thing you will want to do is find guest post opportunities. When looking for places to guest post, your main goal is to find sites relevant to your niche or industry. You are looking for blogs that fit the following criteria:
  • The content is focused on your niche / industry.
  • The audience of the blog will be interested in your industry.
  • The blog has engaged readership (posts have been shared socially and commented upon).
  • The blog owner is active on social media (so you know that they will be promoting your work on their site).
So if you are selling seeds, you will want to find gardening blogs with an engaged audience of gardeners. The following should help you find the right kind of guest post opportunities.
Google Searches
Google is a great place to start in the search for guest posting opportunities. You can use any of the following keyword searches to find blogs that accept guest posts. Just replace keyword with keywords from your industry.
  • keyword “submit a guest post”
  • keyword “guest post”
  • keyword “guest post by”
  • keyword “accepting guest posts”
  • keyword “guest post guidelines”
These searches should lead you to a blog’s guest post guidelines page, guest post submission page, or actual guest posts by other writers.
Prolific Guest Bloggers
Know of any prolific guest bloggers in your industry? If you read enough blogs in your industry (which you should), these will be the names you see over and over writing content for others. For online marketers, that list includes Gregory Ciotti, Danny Iny, Leo Widrich, Neil Patel, Marcus Sheridan, and many others. Using Google search, search for the name of prolific guest bloggers in your industry plus the phrase “guest post by”. This will reveal all of the sites that these guest bloggers have posted upon. They should be good places for you to guest post upon as well. A bonus would be if you actually know a guest blogger in your industry that can make an introduction for you to the owners of blogs they have guest posted upon.
Competitor Backlinks
If you (or your online marketing agency) has ever pulled up a backlink analysis of a competitor while working on your SEO campaign, chances are one or more of your competitors have backlinks from guest posts they have done. If you have access to tools like Open Site Explorer, you can look at the backlinks of your competitors and spot any blogs they have written for. If you don’t, you can do a Google search for link:domain.com -domain.com “guest post” (replacing domain.com with your competitor’s domain) which should reveal sites that a competitor has written for.
Social Searches
A lot of bloggers and guest posters will share their latest guest posts on social networks. Since the easiest one to search is Twitter, you should try running a Twitter search for keyword “guest post” to get the latest tweets about guest posts in your industry. Just follow the links to see which blogs are accepting the guest posts.

Preparing to Pitch a Guest Post

Notice that we don’t just jump from finding guest blogging opportunities to contacting the blogs. That’s because there are a few things you need to do before you propose a guest post for a site you’ve just found.
Get to Know the Blog’s Content
Getting to know your target blog’s content is key. Sure you know they have content about the keyword you searched for while looking for guest post opportunities. But you need to know even more about that content such as…
  • What level of audience are they writing for (beginners, intermediate, advanced)?
  • What type of audience are they writing for? If your business is B2B, then you will want the blog audience for your guest post to be businesses, not general consumers.
  • What type of content do they write? Is it mostly general concepts or specific, detailed tutorials? Do they like lists?
See How Other Guest Posts Do
While a blog may have guest posts, the question is do the guest bloggers do well? Do guest blog posts on the site get as much comments and social sharing as blog posts by the owner? Some sites might accept guest posts, but if the audience is only tuning in for the blog owner, then you won’t do so well if your goal is to build authority or get traffic back to your website.
See Who the Guest Bloggers Are
Some blog owners are more likely to accept guest posts by certain types of people over others. Peruse a few guest blogger bios on the blog to see if they are fellow bloggers, freelancers, consultants, business owners, and so forth. This will be important when you introduce yourself to the blog owner for your pitch. You can read more about the success rates of guest posting outreach in this study on SEOmoz.
Find Out What Posts Do the Best
To ensure that your guest post gets accepted, you will want to pitch the blog owner with topics that will do well with their audience. To get some good ideas of topics that will work with the blog’s audience, use the following sites to see what posts have been popular on social media. Just replace domain.com with the blog’s domain.
  • http://topsy.com/s?q=domain.com – This will show you the number of times blog posts have been tweeted. Click on the number if you want to see who has tweeted the post and learn more about the blog’s audience.
  • http://plus.topsy.com/s/domain.com – This will show you the number of times blog posts have been shared on Google+. Chances are, blog posts that have been shared on Google+ a lot will also have a lot of +1′s which might mean better search visibility.
  • http://delicious.com/search?p=domain.com&jtf=E&partial_type=B – This will show you the number of times blog posts have been saved on Delicious.
  • http://digg.com/search?q=site:domain.com – This will show you the posts on a blog that have received the most amount of Digg votes.
Become a Familiar Face in the Blog Community
To increase your chances of getting accepted as a guest blogger, you will want to get some recognition from the blog owner first. The best way to do this is to take a week or two and comment on their latest posts. You’ll get bonus points for sharing those posts on Twitter too – just be sure to include the blog owner’s @username on Twitter. This way, when you pitch your guest post, you won’t be a complete stranger.

The Best Times to Pitch a Guest Post

You won’t always have a golden opportunity to pitch a guest post, but there are certain things to take advantage of when they arise. These include the following.
  • When blog mentions you in one of their posts or on social media (Twitter, Facebook, Google+, etc.).
  • When the blog lists you, your business, or your product in one of their posts.
  • When the blog specifically advertises they are looking for guest posts.
  • When the blog publishes another guest post.

Basic Pitch Best Practices

The following are absolute musts when pitching a guest blog post to another blog owner.
Read the Guidelines
The last thing you need to do before contacting the blog owner is read the guest posting guidelines, if applicable, and follow them closely. Does the blog owner want you to pitch an idea or actually submit a full post? What format do they want it in? Do they want you to create an account and enter it into WordPress? These are all things to know ahead of time before you contact the blog owner.
Personalize Your Email
As a blogger who receives daily guest post pitches, nothing turns me off of an email more than ones starting with Dear Sir or Madam, Dear Webmaster, To the owner of Kikolani.com, or simply Hi. Somewhere on the blog you are about to contact will be the name of the blog owner. You might have to ferret around for it on the about page or on one of the blog’s social media accounts, but it is more than likely out there. Find it, and use it to start the email.
Who Are You
Remember the part about seeing who guest bloggers are on your target blog? Some blog owners are particular about only allowing other bloggers to submit guest posts on their sites. If you noticed that most guest bloggers are bloggers themselves, then you might want to introduce yourself as a blogger at (insert your personal or business blog here). You can always be a business owner on the side – just focus on your blogging skills first.
Why You Should Be a Guest Blogger
Be sure to include why you should be a guest blogger. Add a few links to posts you have published elsewhere, including your own blog. Preferably go with posts that have a good bit of social engagement so the blog owner will see your potential value with their audience.

How to Pitch a Guest Post Idea

If the guest post guidelines ask you to submit a topic idea, then (based on your research of previously popular posts), pitch a few different ideas so the blog owner has some to choose from.

How to Submit a Great Guest Post

One of the common questions about guest blogging is whether you should be using your best content for your own blog or for your guest posting. It really depends on the quality of the blog you are submitting your content to. If the blog has nothing but 900+ word posts with lots of screenshots, then your post should be similar. If the blog has nothing but posts with 500 words or less with only one image, then your posts (again) should be similar. The following are other good tips for making your guest post as awesome as possible.
It’s Not About You
The first thing to remember about a great guest post is that it is not about your business, your products, or your services. Guest posts should be valuable sources of information – not advertisements! Any information about your business and related items should be reserved for the author bio. Occasional mentions, stories, or examples are OK to illustrate a point, but the majority of the post should be focused on something other than your business.
Format Posts Like the Ones on the Site
Take a look at posts on your target blog. Do they use lots of headers, bolded text, images, quotes, or other special formatting? Make sure that your post has similar elements to match other posts on the site.
Include Internal and Source Links
Show the blog owner that you know their content by including a few internal links back to some of their posts. The easiest way to do this is to do a Google search for site:domain.com intitle:keyword. This will get you their top posts on a particular keyword so you can link that post to the keyword in your post. Also, if you mention any specific products, books, etc., be sure to link to those too (assuming it’s not self-promotional).
Include a Call to Action for Comments
At the end of your amazing guest post, be sure to include a call to action for comments. The more discussion your post generates, the better!

How to Craft a Great Guest Bio

The most important part of guest blogging (for you) will likely be your guest post bio. This is usually the only place you should include self-promotion links back to your website, blog, product, service, book, etc. What you write in this section will depend on your guest blogging goals.
  • If your goal is to get good backlinks, just make sure your bio includes a link back to your website with your target anchor text and you are all set.
  • If your goal is to get traffic back to your website, then you might want to consider where you want that traffic to go. Depending on the subject of your guest post and the audience of the blog you place it upon, you might want to send traffic to a custom landing page or page about a specific product / service.
  • If your goal is to increase followers to your social accounts, do this by adding a line to the end of your bio that says “Follow me on (insert your top social network and link here).”

How to Be the Best Guest Blogger

If you’re aiming to become a regular contributor to a blog, or simply want the blog owner to brag about what a great guest blogger you are, then be sure to do your best to promote your post to popularity through your own audience. The blog owner will love it if you send new readers their way. Also, be sure to reply to your comments. That will go a long way if you are working to build authority in your industry.

Tracking Your Results

When the goal is traffic, the results of your guest blogging should definitely be measured. The best way to do this is to create an Advanced Segment in Google Analytics. You can learn how to set up an Advanced Segment in this post on how to find out which online marketing strategy drives the best traffic. All you need is one segment using the source dimension with multiple statements for each domain that you have guest blogged for – you can have up to 20 or statements per Advanced Segment. Mine looks like this…
google analytics guest blogging advanced segment
Using this, you can view all of your Google Analytics data based on referrals from your guest posts. This can help you determine the success of your overall guest blogging strategy in terms of getting traffic and making conversions. If you’re not sure how to track conversions, see this post on getting actionable data to learn how to set up goals.

How to Get Guest Bloggers for Your Blog

Finally, don’t forget that guest blogging can be a two way street. It’s tough to maintain your own blog content while guest posting on a lot of other blogs. So be sure to open an invitation for guest bloggers to write on your own blog. This way, you can keep fresh content on your own blog, add a new perspective for your audience, and hopefully get new readers from your guest blogger’s community. It’s a win-win situation!

10 killing SEO tips


Most folks with some net style and beginner SEO information ought to be able to take these to the bank with none drawback.

1. If you completely should use Java script change posture menus, image maps or image links, make sure to place text links somewhere on the page for the spiders to follow.

2. Content is king, thus make sure to possess smart, literate and distinctive content which will specialize in your primary keyword or keyword phrase.

3. If content is king, then links area unit queen. Build a network of quality backlinks exploitation your keyword phrase because the link. Remember, if there's no smart, logical reason for that website to link to you, you don’t wish the link.

4. Don’t be smitten by PageRank. it's only 1 isty bitsy a part of the ranking algorithmic rule. A website with lower PR will truly rank one with a better PR.

5. make sure you've got a singular, keyword targeted Title tack each page of your website. And, if you want to have the name of your company in it, place it at the tip. Unless you're a significant name that's a family name, your business name can in all probability get few searches.

6. recent content will facilitate improve your rankings. Add new, helpful content to your pages on a daily basis. Content freshness adds connexion to your website within the eyes of the search engines.

7. make sure links to your {site|website|web website} and at intervals your site use your keyword phrase. In alternative words, if your target is “blue widgets” then link to “blue widgets” rather than a “Click here” link.

9. Don’t style your computing device while not considering SEO. confirm your net designer understands your expectations for organic SEO. Doing a retrofit on your shiny new Flash-based website once it's engineered won’t cut it. Spiders will crawl text, not Flash or pictures.

10. Use keywords and keyword phrases suitably in text links, image EL attributes and even your name.

First of all I am not totally success in blogging. But here is my a short plan and idea.
Make a schedule
I know some of the popular and biggest bloggers not posting regularly, or even at frequent but apparently random intervals. They have a lot of subscriber who falls on their every word, and who doesn’t care if those words are published at irregular times.
There’s no need to add extra stress to your blogging by thinking you must publish a post at 12 noon every Tuesday and Friday.  And never publish a post that isn’t ready for your readers’ eyes. Scheduling is less important than quality.
Effective post for optimize search engine.
So, creature actually search engine friendly is always a good way. If you’re writing clear, helpful posts then you’re already using some SEO keywords without even trying. If you also use heading tags to format your posts that give each post a structure that search engines can understand.
 Make you blog post words long
Why did this ever become a blogging rule? More importantly, why assume that this rule applies to your blog? Every post you write should be long enough to get your point across and stick in the reader’s memory; no more, no less.
That could be 100 words plus supporting media, or it could be a 3,000 word epic post. It really depends what you’re writing, and who you’re writing it for. Don’t count words while you write – it’s a time suck and a bad habit for any writer to get into. If you’re curious about your draft’s word count, check it during editing instead.
Make every social network profile
That would be a great idea. No less then, it would be exhausting to keep them all active and up-to-date. There’s no point creating a profile if it looks abandoned when your readers check you out on Twitter, Facebook, or StumbleUpon.
So that was about my plan hoped you all will like this.

BlackHat Success: Never give up!

Author Michael Jeffreys personally interviewed 15 top motivational gurus in 1997 for his then upcoming book. After talking to gurus from Brian Tracy to Dr. Wayne Dyer, he distilled 8 Secrets to Success they all agreed upon. These secrets are still good today and are as follows:
1. Take 100% Responsibility for Your Life – In a society where people blame everything from their parents to the government for failure, those who don’t buy into this mentality or succumb to the “victim” thinking succeed. To blame something or somebody outside yourself is saying they have control of your life and not you. Someone else’s opinion of you doesn’t have to become your reality.
2. Live Your Life On Purpose - What separates motivational thinkers from the unsuccessful is that they believe they’re doing what they were put her to do. The difference between this and just living, is that the latter is just getting through the week with the least problems. But when you live your life on purpose, your main concern is doing the job right. For the entrepreneur this means finding a cause you believe in and building your business around it.
3. Be Willing to Pay the Price - Be willing to pay the price for your dreams. Wanting a big house, a luxury car, and a million dollars in the bank is all very nice, and everyone wants these things – but are you willing to pay the price to get them? This is one of the major differences between the successful and unsuccessful.
4. Stay Focused – Every day we’re bombarded with hundreds of tasks, phone calls, messages, and everyone competing for our time. Focusing requires giving up something in the present because you are investing your time in something that will pay off big-time down the road. Jack Canfield and Mark Hanson were turned by 30 publishers when they submitted the first “Chicken Soup for the Soul” book. Instead of giving up, they stayed focused on their goal and did four or five interviews per day for radio, TV, and newspapers, for five days a week for a whole year. Eventually, a small publisher decided to take a chance, and of course now it’s a best-seller that spawned an entire series that have sold more than 10 million copies.
5. Become An Expert in Your Field One striking factor all successful people have in common is how seriously they take their profession. They strive to be the best at what they do, and do almost anything to improve. If someone followed you around all day with a video camera at your business, would it be a tape you’d be proud of or embarrassed about? Make the decision today to work at being the best in your field. How? By finding out what the “best” in your field are doing, and do what they do.
6. Write Out a Plan for Achieving Your Goals - Write out an action plan/map for how you’re going to achieve your goals. Trying to reach your goals without a plan is like trying to drive from Los Angeles to Chicago without a map. A goal that isn’t written down is merely a wish or fantasy.

Never Give Up -
Never, never, never give up. When you’re fully committed to achieving your goal, giving up is not an option. You must be willing do whatever it takes to make it happen. The power of perseverance is an awesome force. As someone once said, “inch by inch it’s a cinch”. Think of the lowly inchworm – if it pondered the length of the trip from start to finish before it started, it probably would never move. To a worm’s point-of-view, the garden path must look like a trip to Mars. Never give up! Keep on going like the Eveready battery bunny, and pretty soon you’re there.
8. Don’t Delay - Nobody knows how much time they have left to accomplish their dreams, and we must remember that we don’t have forever. The clock is ticking, and sooner or later your number comes up and you’re gone. Successful achievers know this too, but they don’t view it as a “negative”. Achievers use it to “spur them on”. They go after what they want as energetically and as passionately as possible, for as long as they have.
I had a friend who used to say, “Today is a check – cash it! Yesterday is an I.O.U. – forget it! Tomorrow is a promissory note, don’t bank on it!” I think that’s a pretty good summation of life, so go out there and cash in on that “today” check.
