Parasite Piggyback Traffic

I’ve just come across a useful traffic strategy called “Parasite Hosting”. It’s actually something I’ve been doing for a while, but that term describes it well. The idea is you can piggyback the traffic from major sites and direct it to your own.

There are many, many sites you can be a parasite on. In fact, any site that will host your pages. Here’s some popular ones:

WordPress
Blogger
Squidoo
Hubpages
Geocities
Typepad
GooglePages

…and hundreds more!

You may already have noticed how it works. Each of those sites have been ranked highly by Google, Alexa etc and can help you in a number of ways:

1. Linking to your own site from them to increase your pagerank. These backlinks are from authority sites.

2. Direct traffic from the users and fans of the services themselves.

3. The ability to create strong keyword-based pages on them, to help with organic SEO.

So if you create a hubpage, squidoo lense, Blogger blog, and WordPress blog on your choosen subject, you can put content there and also link back to your own site.

For example, if your site has movie reviews, you can create sattelite sites on as many parasite hosts as you can find. Each of these will be a movie-related theme, and each of them will link to each other, and to your own site.

If done correctly Google won’t mind. Just as long as you provide real content for the end user.

I’ve just bought the rights to a couple of products than can help you find and utilise these sites for driving traffic to your own. The first is “Taking Advantage Of Parasite Hosting” which is a full guide to this strategy, along with 13 Videos illustrating and explaining the concept. This also contains details of the best hosts to use, what content to put on them, and how to utilise the traffic-building potential to it’s utmost.

The second is “Profiting After The Sale” – a great guide to increasing the income you can generate from each main sale you make.

I’ve also thrown in a free copy of the 5-Minute Traffic Tip, since it really is a pretty cool technique in it’s own right :)

All three for only $7 — and that’s with full Master Resale Rights!

You don’t need this guide. This post outlines the tactic, so you can you try it yourself. But having everything in front of you in a PDF and Video form will certainly help you understand how powerful this underrated technique is.

Stomping The Search Engines 2 Part Two

I’ve already written a comprehensive review at this site and don’t worry – I’m not going to keep on. By now you’ve decided whether this is something that will benefit you or not.

I have been asked why I am promoting the product so enthusiastically – as I’ve only written good things about it. What are the bad things?

Well – it’s not 100% perfect, but it’s one of the best you will get. What don’t I like?

For one, it’s a video product. To be honest many people like this better, as you can kick back with a cup of coffee and absorb the information given to you. The videos are more of a slideshow format, so the cards you see on the screen in front of you always show a summary and the salient points of what is being discussed.

I myself would have liked a PDF document or a transcription as I can scan that quicker. But whatever rocks your boat :-)

And the second “bad” point is the bundled magazine subscription. The magazine is excellent, I won’t deny that, but why market it via a trial procedure?

The fact is trial offers for magazines have, are, and always will be a very effective marketing method. It’s too expensive to produce a free magazine that is sent to your door – unless it is heavily ad supported. Paying for contributors and columnists will always take a heavy monetary cost.

This trial works by giving you a free copy, then letting you decide whether or not you want to continue. It’s try before you buy. It’s worth noting there are very few – almost none in fact – print journals that are specifically for Internet Marketers and website promoters. And as I said in the review, nothing beats a hard copy for ease of use. How many downloads do you have on your PC you’ve never read? :-)

In any case you can cancel easily whenever you want, even before the second issue (so you won’t pay anything- ever).

I stand by my review, and if I had to give the product a rating, it would easily get 9 / 10. And that’s only because 10s should only be handed out to the best of the best, the ultimate in the field, and this field is still young.

Stomping The Search Engines 2

Stomping The Search Engines 2

A Full Review, Details and How To Get It – For Free! Bonus Included.

Stomping The Search Engines 2 is the follow up to the product that first turned the Stompernet guys (Andy Jenkins and Brad Fallon) into megastars. This time around, they’ve moved on from the originals CD format and now present a full DVD – and the launch of a brand new magazine.

Four years ago Stomping 1 was perhaps the biggest selling SEO product – ever. Now, Stomping The Search Engines 2 is destined to make even more online millionaires than the original.

As the title suggests, this is about SEO – Search Engine Optimization. STSE2 details the current methods used to get your site a good ranking. After all, if you are the top result for a good keyphrase in the natural-search listings at sites like Google you can literally write your own cheque.

The DVD

There are actually two DVDs because you also get a copy of the original STSE. Remember, that sold thousands of copies at $300 a time !

Once you put the DVD into your PC it will launch into a videoplayer, giving you access to all the videos in the product. It starts with an overview of the pros and cons of SEO.

There are 7 modules, 36 videos in all. The introduction section kicks off short-term tactics you can use, and a look at what they call “agressive white hat” SEO. Then it moves on to discussions of the actual technology behind the major the major search engines, before it gets to the really juicy stuff.

For example, the videos on keywords and content structure will really open your eyes to how to properly design a website destined for high rankings, as will the shows about optimizing your site content, and your site structure.

Don’t worry if all this sounds a bit techy. The presentation is easy to follow!

By the time we’ve passed through the all important linking and promotion section, we’re well on our way to become search engine guru’s ourselves :-)

The final section may be the most important: measuring results, and tweaking your site(s) to improve them. After all, we can’t remain stationary – someone else may make a play for our enviable top ranks…

This is only an overview of the video content. If you’ve ever seen any of the Stompernet videos that have circulated online, you’ll understand how professional the presentation is, and how informative. It’s information you want – so feel free to take notes, pause or rewind where neccessary, or (as I did) jot down the times of interesting sections in the videos so you can revisit.

And once you’ve watched all the videos (first time around, anyway – I’m sure you’ll revisit them) be sure to check out the resources on the DVD. You’ll find the Stompernet Directory List (an invaluable links collection) and the Keyword Strategy Guide!

Whatever your current level of expertise STSE2 will help you aim for, and achieve, those high front-page Google listings…

Stomping The Search Engines 2

Other things I’ve picked up from these videos – in no particular order:

How to avoid accidental duplicate content
What you can get penalized on by the Search Engines
“Canonicalization” of your content
Don’t use – or trust – Google’s inbound link count
Some “competitiors” may acually be good partners
Target the head – but mine the “long tail”

I could go on, I’m only dipping into a few videos to give you an overview, but you should get the idea.

The Magazine

The new publication, called The Net Effect, is included with STSE2. Remember, this is a physical product, so it’s a hardcopy, printed out professionally for you to read anywhere.

It’s an Internet Marketing magazine that goes above and beyond anything you’ve seen before. You can read it all in one go, or dip in and out – and probably be buzzing with ideas to implement.

In this first issue you’ll find a great article on the “Keyword Heist” technique, 26 Things To Test, Twittering Your Way To Traffic, and much more.

I especially enjoyed reading the Social Media Survival Guide!

This is – again – just an overview of the magazine, there’s a lot more included (“armour-piercing e-mail” anyone?) and you may find the Monthly Action Plan at the end very useful, as it brings everything you’ve learned so far together into a single-page plan to follow. My advice? Photocopy it or cut it out and stick it near your PC.

The Net Effect is designed to keep you up-to-date in the fast moving marketing and SEO world. Let’s face it, how many ebooks or websites do you actually read? Nothing beats a real “hold it in your hand” product. You’ll be looking forward to your snail mail each month :) This is an ongoing monthly journal for high-end SEO and Internet Marketing. A serious trade publication. It’s your business, your livelihood – so make sure you’ve got all the latest information to hand. Insider information from the Stompernet pro’s.

All in all Stomping The Search Engines 2 is an excellent product that is sure to benefit anyone working in the IM field today, whether they are a bedroom dabbler, or head of a company.

You already know the best part – it’s hardly a secret.

STSE2 is FREE.

And not just the “free” you see bandied about a lot in marketing campaigns. STSE2 is a very real $497 product, and “The Net Effect” magazine is worth $39 monthly…

The cat is now out of the proverbial bag. Get over to the website and claim your copy, before the Stompernet guys come to their senses!

Stomping The Search Engines 2

The page above is a good example of the professionalism of these guys. Look at the video, read the details, and get stoked up with what you could achieve. This is not some $7 screen-capture video product. This is not some re-hashed ebook. This is a very real SEO course especially designed for Internet Marketers, the people who really know how to make their livings online.

Once you decide to order at the above link, drop me a note via the support desk and I’ll send you a free bonus — even though STSE2 is free in itself…

P.S. Because the launch was delayed slightly due to demand the Stompernet guys have promised some special bonuses themselves as a “sorry” so be sure to check the link above to see what extras you get – above and beyond the review copy I’ve looked at here!

Let The Search Engines Help You!

Traffic can come from many places. Apart from your regular visitors – perhaps fans of your site, visitors from your e-mail promotions, or contributors to your forum – those folk who find you from a search query are among the best.

These are qualified, pre-screened, visitors. They have come to your site expecting to find whatever it is they are looking for. And it’s the search engines job to match these searches with quality content.

The big search engines DO want you in their listings. Honestly – they’re not trying to exclude you, heck… they need you!

To that end they all provide various tools and guidelines to (a) ensure you meet the strict quality control and (b) ensure you are found for the right terms.

Google

Currently, the #1 search engine by almost every ranking method known to man. Google’s help and advice can be found at their Webmaster Central.

This section of their site includes their webmaster tools, their comprehensive Analytics software, their Optimizer to help you rank better, and information on submitting content: such as products, books, rss feeds, local listings and more.

The aforementioned tools are also worth a thorough look. Here you’ll find the all important Sitemap area where you can specify what pages on your site are indexed, and view statistics on the search terms you are found for and more.

Yahoo

Yahoo don’t offer an all in one webmaster area like Google, but you may find these links helpful:

Add Your URL To Yahoo – unless you want a paid submission, it’s usually quicker to get crawled from a link on a already listed URL. There are, however, special areas for submitting media and mobile sites.

Site Explorer – See what pages you have listed.

Other Yahoo Links – Webmaster Guidelines, Marketing Services etc.

MSN

Despite Microsofts efforts MSN Search isn’t as popular as the other two. They do however have a useful section at their latest incarnation, Live.com

Live.Com Webmaster Tools includes validation and authentication tools, guidelines, technical support, and a webmaster forum. Typical of Microsoft this looks rather corporate and the links can be confusing, but dig around and there’s quality information there :)

Cuil – The New Google?

If you keep up with technology news you can’t fail to have noticed that a new Search Engine, set up by former Google employees, has launched.

Called “Cuil” (pronounced “cool”) this aims to use context and relevance, rather than simply counting links and reading page content. Of course, this has been attempted before, so how does Cuil shape up?

This is from a users point of view. It’s probably too early to be talking about a marketing viewpoint. And after all, if this is focused on delivering results better than Google you’ll probably find it more difficult to optimise pages to try and force a high ranking – if Cuil takes off. The basic premise of providing quality content should help, however.

The first thing you notice is the way results are displayed. Although it takes some getting used to for those of us who treat Google’s list view as second nature, the grid view provided by Cuil is rather pleasing to the eye. At a glance you can usually see what each site in the listings are about.

So how do the results rank? I tried a few searches, including “Fly Fishing”, “Motorcycle Mechanics” and “How To Sell Your House” to see how relevant Google and Cuil results are.

The short answer? Google and Cuil provided mostly different results, which is kind of pleasing as it at least shows Cuil is doing things differently. I also liked the way Cuil provides further search examples as you type, and the tabbed results window.

Ultimately, however, though less flashy Google was quicker to load (unsurprising considering the mighty networks running the behemoth) and I was able to find a relevant site quickly.

Mostly, I think this is due to habit: I’m more used to Google’s results page, and I tend to scan a search engine results listing very quickly and usually can see what is an information site, and what is trying to sell me something.

Cuil is definately something to look out for. They have a mammoth task ahead of them to even gain a small percentage of the search engine market. But I can say that it does work, it does deliver relevant results, and if we can all break our habits and try something new, perhaps it will in some way succeed.
