Where Do You Get Content For Your Blog?

I did a recent search on Google for blog content.  Unfortunately I don’t always have time to blog like I would want to. Sometimes I need a little help coming up with good ideas and content so I went searching to see what I could find.

There are several sites for articles like ArticleBase.com, ArticleFactory.com, ArticleCity.com, but the problem with that is you are putting content on your site that is not unique. All of these sites let anyone post them as long as they are linked back. Google is not a fan of duplicate content so that’s not a good idea.

There are also sites where you can purchase PLR articles. This is a little better as they are not sold to a huge number of people, but they are still not unique to you. They may only be sold to 150 people, but still that’s 150 blogs that have that content on them.

I also looked into someone writing the blog posts for me. This is a good idea for unique content, but you need to have money to do that. It can get quite expensive if you want posts coming to you on the regular. I’m not saying this a good idea but unless you have a good amount to invest, then this isn’t for you.

The best way to get good quality, unique content for your site is guest bloggers. Ah ha! 🙂 Sure there are some that take cash but not as much as a regular blogger. There are also WP Plugins that help the process. A couple of free places I found are:

www.myblogguest.com

www.freeguestpost.com

www.postrunner.com

You sign up for a free account, enter your blog and then wait for people to contact you or you can put in a post asking for guest posts.

One of the services that have paid blog posts is:

www.postjoint.com

All of these have unique and well written content for your blog if needed.  I have had a couple of guest blog posts that have been extremely well written, a good length and have benefited my blog.

I would definitely be interested in any places you know of where there is great contact for a blog, or if you would like to write a guest post for this blog, please let me know!

 

Have a good one!

Advertising Business – Internet Marketing

Honest Housewife here!

Whether your business is a strictly online business or an offline business, you need to be using advertising business internet marketing strategies. If you aren’t using the power and enormous potential of the internet to gain attention for your business, why not? After all, your competitors sure are.

Of course, if your business is an online storefront or affiliate marketing business you no doubt already understand how important marketing is to your success. If you aren’t getting the website visitors you need, you can’t make any money and if you don’t make any money, you don’t have a business.

The internet changes quickly. A few years ago no one even knew what Twitter was. Today many savvy business owners, both online and off, have come to rely on the tweet as a way to build rapport with their customers as well as add new customers.

Finding the best methods for advertising business internet marketing is another issue all together. There are many ways you can market your business using the internet, and as I said above, new ones come around all the time. To really get the most out of your advertising you will want to create a campaign that encompasses several methods.

To do this, you can either do it yourself or hire a company that specializes in online marketing. Don’t worry if your business is small and you’re just starting out. You can do it yourself if you need to, once you get some money coming in you can then continue to do it yourself and keep more of the money you make, or hire a company to do it for you, the choice is yours.

But with so many choices for online marketing such as Search Engine Optimization (SEO), article marketing, banner ads, Pay Per Click (PPC), classified ads, to name just a few, having someone else coordinate it all can free you up to do those things that only you can do, like take your kids to the park!

The really neat thing about many of these online marketing techniques is that many of them are completely free to do. They only require some of your time and for many people who are just getting started, that’s all they can afford.

For those of you who don’t have much money and have to rely solely on sweat equity, your best bet is to focus on one of the methods to start, preferably a free method like SEO or article marketing. Take the time to perfect that method than move on to another.

That is the best way to start generating traffic so you can start making a little money. As your business grows and you are making more money you can hire others to help you out and /or you can move on to other ways of getting traffic that cost money such as PPC and banner ads.

The sooner you implement a sound strategy to
advertising business internet marketing the sooner you can start making more sales and growing your business. Time’s a wasting!

Enjoy your day!

Content Site Linking Strategies For High SE Ranking

Hey! Honest Housewife here.

To help your site to rank well in the search engines you will need to do some linking which works really well if you know what you are doing. However, if you don’t know how to create links properly then you could just create a big mess

When you create links you want to do so in moderation. Some people will buy linking services that will create thousands of links very fast, but this is not always the best approach. As with many things in life, taking it slow is often the best choice.

To have a successful website you want to focus on quality content rather than quantity. So if your website is chock-a-block full of bad quality content and links that aren’t producing then feel free to remove all that wasted space and focus completely on good content.

When you have your website complete with good quality content across several pages then you can add links to the different pages. Each page should be focusing on a keyword phrase and you should try to rank each individual page for its main keyword phrase. When you link from one page on your site to another you are encouraging your visitors to browse through numerous pages on your website rather than look at the main page and leave.

Deep linking is all about using the right link to a specific page on the website. You need to use relevant pages of content to link to your other pages and these links can come from within your own site or from other sites. Have your inner pages on your site linking to your main home page.

If you advertise for link exchanges, tell other website owners that you are limiting the number of links you take so you can keep open some spots for future sources, this will entice other website owners to want to exchange links with you before you reach your limit.

Because you are limiting the number of links this is also enticing to website owners as it is more beneficial for them to be among a limited number of links coming from a site. Because there are less links there is less competition among links on your website and this is a big benefit for website owners. It also lets website owners know that you are a responsible and professional link building and one that would be good to do business with.

This method will also increase your link popularity and you will soon be receiving more traffic to the numerous pages on your website. You will have more leverage when asking other website owners to exchange links and when you have high amounts of traffic and link popularity you may even be able to start charging website owners to place links on your site.

By increasing the value of your links this means that those who exchange links with you are also good, high quality websites which is always good for your own business.

By including links to other sites on your site you are sending traffic to those sites. Not everyone likes to do this but the fact is that although you are sending some traffic to other sites you are receiving so much more traffic that it doesn’t really matter. You are building strong links to and from your site and this is going to help your ranking within the search engines and that is always a good thing.

Have a great day!
