Internet Marketing and Better Backlinks - Different? Better?


Avoid Poison Keywords and Sleazy Niches

Google watches some keywords more than they do others.

Their approach to wiping out low quality websites is based on what they have learned from collecting data and tweaking algorhithms for many years and seeing where the “webspammers” are most actively trying to trick them.

The main thing I have learned in my 15 + years of being a web publisher and building all kinds of websites for profit is that it’s generally better to focus on what I call “mid tier keywords” that are not as HYPER COMPETITIVE and as such commonly abused by SPAMMERS!

You know the poison niches… the keywords that can get you in trouble faster… the ones clogging your spam email box.

It’s much easier to get on top faster by avoiding those legacy big money keywords and instead profit by focusing on variations of those posion keywords or selecting keywords in different niches that are not so hot in the spamming community.

You must be aware that Google watches some keywords more than they watch others.

They watch the ones that spammers typically promote. You know the ones… they’re in your email box every day as spam messages. Try to stay away from promoting that stuff! They seek out spammers aggresively and it’s harder to rank for those keywords. So why bother?

There are so many good niches to build sites for with tons of great keywords that are profitiable and are NOT hammered by spammers.

And the mid tier keywords are much easier to rank for.

You do NOT NEED to do the BLACK HAT things that the webpsammers are doing to get lots of free traffic when you target mid tier keywords.

The Blogging Underground 12 Step Success Strategy focuses very heavily on picking the best keywords. It’s the real secret to our success!

Now – I am not saying you can’t be successful marketing more mainstream products or products that have even crossed over into ultra spammy territory – but you need to be aware that when you start to fight your battle in a zone filled with spammers you’re more likley to get caught up and tagged an an evil affiliate marketer.

Now – be careful you don’t fall into believing the common misconception that Google hates ALL AFFILIATES. They don’t.

But they sure do seem to hate affiliates that do sleazy things to make a buck.

They are perfectly fine with good marketers who are not building fake news blogs or using deceptive techniques to trick people and get sales.

Marketing legit good products as affiliates is not the same as hustling some online scams or bogus products that don’t deliver what is offered.

Hey – we’re not the same people Google were really mad at a year or so ago when the CPA offers got out of control and everyone was spamming them. You know – the fake news blogs that caused Google to get in trouble with the FTC over the false advertising and bogus practices promoting ridiculous cures and sleazy offers for Acai Berry Juice and all that other evil CPA stuff like offers that were impossible to cancel etc.

People were doing all kinds of sleazy stuff like using Oprah and Dr. Oz without their permission. It was way out ofcontrol and the U.S> goevernment stepped in and started getting involved. (continued – read more of this article…)

Good SEO is NOT about tricking Google!

SEO has gotten a bad name.

In reality it should be WEBSPAM that has the bad name.

SEO and WEBSPAM ARE NOT ALWAYS THE SAME although Google would sure like you to believe that!

I am not a spammer and don’t do spammy things to game them! I never have! That’s not the way I do things or teach other people to do.

Hey – I’m doing very well building good quality websites with quality content and I am getting lots of free search engine traffic from Google.

So are members at Blogging Underground and we’re not gaining success by TRICKING ANYONE or doing evil things!

It’s actually easier right now than ever before, because so many people have taken the wrong path and are actually working backwards in fear obeying the commands of the fearless leader because they are so paranaoid of doing things that Google doesn’t like.

They are doing things that Google is telling them that are good things to do.

Do you really think that it is in Google’s best interest to tell SEO webmaster type people how to get more traffic from their search engine for free?

Do you really believe that Google is giving advice that is helping webmasters get more top rankings faster and easier?

I don’t.

They have never liked people like us – you know – marketers – people that build web sites to get free search engine traffic and make money without buying ads.

Why would they help us with webmaster tools or otherwise?

THEY WOULDN’T and THEY’RE NOT!

OK – it’s about time I chime with an honest response to all the garbage info being passed around the webmaster world that SEO is dead and that Google has stopped people from getting top rankings from getting text links.

Some people are saying that the right way to win traffic from search engines is by playing the way that Google wants you to play – doing what they tell you to do. Obeying them.

And some people out there, many with no real world SEO experience getting a top ranking, are even trying to make you feel bad and telling you that you are trying to trick Google and doing evil things – just because you may have gotten a few links to your own sites and that is UN NATURAL… (continued – read more of this article…)
