What exactly is changing with Google Ads?

Why did Google change the way ads are shown?

I just thought I’d share a few observations about the changes Google recently made on how they are showing ads on their search results pages.

First off, it’s not uncommon for Google to make sudden changes. A few weeks ago Google search results on desktop no longer show text ads on the right side of search results.

While that alone may not be so bad, what is bugging a lot of people is that Google now shows as many as 4 text ads above the standard organic search results. They also may show ads at the bottom of the page.

It will absolutely affect advertisers who are bidding on keywords and live and die by the traffic they buy – but will it affect those of us who get the majority of our traffic from free organic search?

My gut feeling is it might not be a big deal or even better for getting organic free traffic.

It’s hard to say because there is a degree of “ad blindness” among many searchers who automatically skip past the ads (count me as one of those).

A lot of people though will click the first thing they see that gives them what they want – so now there are more chances they will click an ad instead of an organic search result.

Google will still be showing their “knowledge panels” on the right on some search queries, but in general the total number of ads they show will be dropping from 11 to a max possible of 7.

Should this change in the way they display ads be of great concern?

Too early to tell, but in general for most of us search engine traffic marketers I would say no – not so much. We get the majority of our free traffic from search queries that are longer and less competitive, so there is a good chance many of the pages we rank high on will not be changed much if at all.

Still there could be some noticeable changes on bigger traffic keywords where there is heavy competition for both ads and top rankings.

Hope that helps clear up things a little!

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…)

EMDs – Exact Match Domains are Still the Best!

Just a quickie to sound off on all the crazy rumours going around about “exact match domains” being dead and not working any more. It’s hogwash!

I guess some guru or WSO guy out there must have written a new $12. seo training course where they go off and dump on exact match domains not being effective – because I keep getting emails from people asking me what to do – if they should still get them etc.

YES EMDs still work! Exact match domains are as effective as ever to getting top rankings and traffic!

Exact match domains are still the prime virtual real estate that web publishers desire. Especially on .com .net and .org

How can a good domain name go out of style or stop working?

I’m scoring number ones on Google with brand new “exact match” keyword domains all the time – so are Blogging Underground members! I hear about it all the time!

In fact I feel it’s getting EASIER – not harder.

The worry about Google “cracking down” on exact match domains is NOT NEW. It seems too good to be true that EMD’s can help you get top rankings fast and easy!

For years I have heard rumors and gossip that this “crackdown on EMDs” will be coming but the fact is that the DOMAIN NAME is only one factor that Google looks at when they score the trustworthiness of a site.

Also – too many big companies and legitimate businesses have exact match domains.

Change is GOOD but Damn that penguin!

Is there an angry Penguin bearing down on you?

Change is GOOD (but Damn that penguin!)

Hi, it’s Mike Liebner here with a few words on the ever changing SEO landscape.

There has been a lot of confusion and misinformation going around these days regarding changes Google has made to their search engine results. It started about a month ago with the deindexing of a lot of websites and once again the past week with new changes how Google is ranking websites in search results.

A lot of confused people are speculating about things that don’t have any real world proof of and are passing the info around as if it is factual.

Google loves when people pass around all kinds of bad intelligence because the NOISE helps make it more confusing for SEO type people to “manipulate Google” for top rankings.

It’s understanding to expect that Google wants to show good results, but the problem is that when major changes such as with this so called Penguin update affect so many legitimate websites and businesses, that people start to yell and scream and panic.

There are actually petitions being passed around to demand that Google do something to fix what they just did.

Good luck with that!

Here is the Google Penguin petition if you want to read it.

I suggest instead of hoping that someone else will FIX the problems you may have encountered that you accept a little responsibility and put some effort into finding out the solutions to any losses that you may have incurred from the algo changes.

Try to focus on what you know is really happening – ideally to you and your sites – and don’t make too many assumptions unless you see for yourself they are indeed fact based conclusions.

If you were impacted by the changes Google has been making I sincerely believe you can make changes and do some sensible things to get things back on track.

Now, first off – if you’re in this web publishing thing for the long haul, which I am, you need to adopt an attitude of confidence in your abilities to do better than most other people who plain and simple do not belong here.

We can beat them even IF the rules change. So do not give up.

Simply do what it takes to get back on top.

So what has happened? Has Google made changes to intentionally rub out small timers like you and me? Are they trying to favor the fat cat established authority sites and big corporations and edge out the little guys from the top of the search engines? (continued – read more of this article…)

Google Top Rankings Screenshots

Look I’m ranking # 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and even #7 on Google!

It’s nice to see what we are doing is working! Google loves my site!

I want to share some screenshots with you that shows a current example of how one of my sites is hitting Critical Mass on Google.

Take a look at the screenshots that I just took of my site on Google

The screenshots show how this simple neglected example site, which I built from the ground up in the Blogging Underground training videos, is dominating Google!

Have you ever had the top 5, 6 or 7 spots on Google for a high profit high volume keyword?

This is what happens when our sites hit CRITICAL MASS and Google falls in love with them!

That’s the kind of stuff we do here at Blogging Underground!

I also show you the Google Analytics info for the site along with the Adwords data so you can see the whole picture of what it looks like when we dominate Google! See for yourself! Google loves this site!

Google Search Engine Algorithm Changes

I’m still getting lots of emails and articles sent to me about the well publicized “Google Alogorhytm Change” from a week agoo (Feb. 24, 2011) that is supposedly affecting and hurting some sites and webmasters – especially those who rely very heavily on article marketing to make a living.

1st off – let me say that you should NOT worry or be more concerned about this UPDATE than any OTHER update because the fact is Google is CONSTANTLY changing how it ranks sites and web pages – it happens regularly.

The main difference that I can see is that a few high profile “article sites” that are pretty darn big – maybe even TOO BIG – such as ezinearticles.com, buzzle, associated content, squidoo and hubpages in particlular – have been said to have a significant reduction in traffic from Google because THEIR rankings have dropped.

So what!

It may open up more slots for us and our high quality real content web pages!

Unless it is affecting you personally and you have seen TRAFFIC go down – keep in mind almost every time something GOES DOWN that something else will GO UP! So – do not stress out about this!

Is it affecting ME personally?
NO! I can’t say it is. I have seen ONE of my big money keywords DROP off the front page onto page 2 – but I have so many of them that ONE alone is nothing to worry about and may not be related to the changes.

Hardly anything at all has changed for me and my sites. I’m still doing very well!

Traffic numbers are the SAME overall.

Plus – this kind of stuff happens day to day so who is to say this is even related to the BIG CHANGE???

One of the things I teach people is that you need to diversify and not put all your apples in one basket.

If all you do to make a living is submitting your articles to ezinearticles, you might be in trouble! If you have your own sites that deliver value to the end user and you are NOT a one trick pony – you will be fine!

If you have more than one site or better yet several or many and you mix things up and deliver value to the user – you should not be impacted very much or even at all by the recent changes at Google.

If your sites offer real value with good site structure and no dirty tricks you should be fine – perhaps even better off as more slots are opening for you to rank in easier.

Google still wants good sites with value to rank on top. That’s exactly what we do – right? They just want a few sites in particular that offer LESS VALUE to rank on top LESS OFTEN!

I think that’s good!

So what are the changes that Google has made in ranking sites???

Who knows for sure. Also – it is NOT affecting ALL RANKINGS.

I have checked and I still have the number one position for my most important sites that I have been working hard to keep on top. No drastic or radical change there.

As far as I can tell Google has made a decison to devalue pages from certain kinds of sites – they happen to be some of the BIGGEST article sites – mainly ezinearticles.com as I hear them crying the loudest right now. (continued – read more of this article…)

Twitter Search? Give me a break!

So what’s all this noise about Twitter Search???

Is there really a TWITTER SEARCH??? Oh… OK – I searched for it on Google and found it.

It’s at: http://search.twitter.com/

Twitter Search Sucks!

I could not find Twitter search on my personal twitter page:

http://twitter.com/mikeliebner

(Follow me by the way – I’m clever at fitting in a lot in that cryptic space!)

So what is the big deal about Twitter Search (or is that search twitter?)

It sucks, right???

I keep hearing the web 2.0 gurus out there praising Twitter and on several occasions they proclaimed that Google better watch out becuase Twitter Search is the future.

If you asked me – Twitter itself is lame and Twitter Search is even lamer.

I searched TwitterSearch for best plants for indoor pollution

No results found for my 5 word query??? NONE!

Ohhhhh. was my search above the 160 allowed characters??? Who knows!

 Twitter is less as in USELESS and trust me – in this case LESS is not MORE. It’s just less.

Uhhh… do people search for single words anymore? It’s 2010 for Crissakes.

If you want to find out about something other than single words like dogs or cats you better not waste your time on Twitter. Maybe a 2 workd search like “oil spill” but geez – who wants to get their info from Twitter on an oil spill??? I’m sure there are some clever 160 character pieces on that – but geez – not likely :’> Sorry… I’m starting to sound like Andy Rooney.

I mean c’mon – they (Twitter founders) never really thought this thing out – you know the 160 character limit… I mean hey – most of my URL’s take up the bulk of the post and I am usually scrambling to get in what I want to say in as few words as possible because my URL has already snatched up the characters.

Sure – I could get a shorter URL to use – but isn’t that a hassle to do? IT doesn’t exactly encourage spontaneity when you gotta shorten your URL before tweeting.

Now – I might be missing something here – but if you ask me LIMITS are for sissies! They suck! (continued – read more of this article…)

Which is better: Exact Duplicate Content or Similar?

Should you stay away from using PLR articles because Google hates duplicate content???

It’s not that Google hates duplicate content – after all – they index millions of pages that have duplicate content – so if they hate it – why do they bother indexing it at all???

The “duplicate content penalty” myth has gotten out of control! You really need to be more SPECIFIC when you talk about this stuff or tons of people will get scared and take the poor advice on avoiding duplicate content because they think they will get banned or hit in the face with a brick.

Simply not so.

So – does that mean that Google LOVES duplicate content – or do they just hate it but tolerate it???

I wrote a few articles that will give you insight – I suggest you read them because they have all the dirt! I’ll link them at the bottom, but let’s try to get one of those summary type statements in the mix.

I say that you need to look at it like Google and the other search engines do – they want to rank a page on top – so they do their calculations and stuff and make decisions.

Do they do something DRASTIC when they see a page that  looks like another page in their index???

NO! They don’t PENALIZE you just for being similar to another page – but they might penalize you for something else!

Yes, Google most likely prefers content that is NOT “EXACT DUPLICATE CONTENT”!

Ahhhh… so that means similar content is better than EXACT, right???

YES! That’s the best way to look at it! (continued – read more of this article…)

Does Google Trust You???

Does Google Trust You??? Or are they watching every little thing you do?

All too often – us “seo types” will rush out and try to grab the big prizes without putting in the proper time and going at a natural pace. I’m guilty of it too on occasion. It’s hard to restrain myself… but I have learned – that when setting up and introducing new domains – sometimes it’s better to back off and take time instead of hammering and cranking fast and furious.

Do you know what I mean?

For example – you don’t want to come out of nowhere and add a zillion pages to a brand new domain.

You don’t want to have TOO MANY backlinks pointing at pages that just were released. An on and on.

That stuff simply is NOT NATURAL and raises flags and alarm buzzers start going off.

Patience and restraint in the world of SEO can go a long way.

We need to be earning our places by doing things the best way – not always the fastest way. Now don’t get me wrong – automation and speed have their places – but unfortunately – that’s something that usually goes hand in hand with hardcore site spamming.

Some tools used in moderation would be fine – but in many cases when you give a person the power – they want to use it and abuse it and that will bring attention to the patterns of the particlular processes. (continued – read more of this article…)

Top Rankings? Traffic? Both?

Why do you do what you do? Do you want TOP RANKINGS???

Do you want TRAFFIC???

Ideally you want BOTH!

One is not good without the other!

In our quest to build successful web sites with lots of keyword packed content, we often get sidetracked and spend time on things that aren’t really doing much in the way of ROI.

Return on Investment

ROI is not just for ad spending like PPC – it’s also a “return on investment for time spent on a task” or if you like acronyms – let’s call it ROIFTSOAT.

The reason I bring this up is that I regularly see Article Underground members targeting keyword phrases that are either TOO EASY or TOO HARD.

The keywords that are too easy usually bring in very little traffic – even with a number one ranking.

The keywords that are very hard to rank for (on the first page of Google) also usually bring in little or no traffic unless you’re ranked near the top. These ULTRA competitive keywords can be almost impossible to get a top ranking for! Everybody wants to be on page one!

What I am trying to convey here is that it’s not where you RANK or what you are targeting that veryoften will bring in the most traffic and make you the most money.

In fact – if we’d slow down and snoop around our stats a bit we would most likely find that there are MANY keywords bringing us traffic that we have NOT targeted. (continued – read more of this article…)

Google Insights for Search

Google Insights for Search is a great keyword research tool that deserves some attention if you are looking to spot trends and jump on them!

> Link to Google Insights for Search

There are a million ways to use Google Insights for Search – it has such great info, but let’s try to use it to help us build a campaign – whether PPC or Natural Organic SEO

Let’s say you want to promote a new product or CPA offer – simply go to Google Insights for Search and type in keywords relating to the product and note 2 columns in particular – Rising Searches and Top Searches (under search terms).

Change the settings to 90 days on Google Insights for Search so you can see the CURRENT trends (it’s set to a few years by default). This will show you keywords that are on the rise. Click those and you’ll be taken to more data. Keep track of the keywords and you’ll have an excellent list of “off the beaten path” keywords that are GROWING as opposed to drooping.

Words Equal Lots of Money in January (and the first quarter!)

2009 is here! It’s time to think positive!

Right now is a great time to make money as a web publisher with your online business!

Here is a thought…. Your words can equal a lot of money in the first quarter of the year!

Mike Liebner here wishing you a Happy New Year! I would like to send you sincere wishes for you to fulfill your hopes, dreams and goals in 2009!

Success can be yours if you want it!

I know it can be hard sometimes to focus on the positive and dream of success with all the panic, whining and news of gloom and doom out there – BUT HEY – there is still a world of tremendous opportunity out there!

People are still buying stuff! People are still consuming products and services!

In fact – here is something positive to think about…

Based on my 13 years of internet marketing experience – the first quarter of the year is ALWAYS the one that makes us web publishers the MOST MONEY!

It’s a monster! Huge amounts of traffic! January is always a busy month!

That’s right – many look forward to the FOURTH quarter as the “big one” – and YES it usually is pretty big in volume and sales for all businesses – BUT – from my personal experience as a ‘web publisher” as far as getting traffic and earning money from web sites, the month of JANUARY is always the BIGGEST of the year! February and March are often close behind! In fact the traffic and buying boom usually continues right up through April, which is often the SECOND BIGGEST month of the year!

A Few Extra Steps Can Lead to Success!

A Few Extra Steps Can Lead to Success!

“Most people fail in life because they major in minor things.
Success is simple, but it does require certain consistent things each day.”

– Anthony Robbins

I have some helpful information that can help you pull in significantly more profits from doing just a little MORE than you are already doing!

A tiny bit more!

That’s the secret – doing that little extra that will assure you success!

It isn’t so much a SECRET – it’s just that MOST people take the easy way… they don’t always follow through and insure their work will pay off by doing just a little extra.

This especially applies to those of us who build sites and earn a living by attracting people to our websites!

One of the  things I consistently do with Article Underground members is remind them of this SECRET PATH to SUCCESS!

Sure, it may be fun and educational for Article Underground members to look at all the great features and training materials they get as a member of AU – but I need to remind them it’s the ACTION we take that will make us the money – not just reading or studying but DOING.

Watching videos and reading up on things are a good start – BUT far too many people stop at that! Some will try something halfway and then wait and see what happens. Sorry – but that’s not good enough IF you want big money rolling in!

You need to do a little EXTRA work to achieve HUGE success! It’s that simple! Take action and DO SOMETHING with what you learn! Then consistently do those things over and over!!!

Hey – I know – some of you don’t want to work – at all… I wish I could tell you that success can be yours with ZERO EFFORT – but that is not true.

What I can tell you is that Article Underground offers you a complete money making system that can help you work smarter – not harder! You’ll save time by focusing your efforts on the right things!

Build Pages and Get Links! That’s the system! And AU helps you do it quickly and efficiently so that you can build web sites and get tons of free search engine traffic!

The concepts are really quite simple and you don’t need a membership to AU to succeed. We just help you do it quicker!

For example, if you are a web publisher and want to increase your profits – simply put MORE articles and content on your web pages and then get high quality text links pointing at them! And then keep at it!

That is the secret! It’s easy to do and even easier for Article Underground members by using the 400 monthly articles and the 100+ AU announcements blogs! We have 35 high quality in-house blogs and over 80 blogs contributed by AU members – all of which can be used to link to your web sites!

http://www.articleunderground.com/

You’ll make more money with your sites because you won’t be wasting time trying to scavenge links pointing at your pages. And the time you save by using our articles to enhance your web sites will also put you on a faster track to big profits! (continued – read more of this article…)

Stop OVER analysis PARALYSIS & Information Overload

How to Stop OVER analysis PARALYSIS & Information Overload

Stop wasting time! Stop wasting time on the little things and focus your energy on things that make money! This is the key to success!!! Really!

Over analysis paralysis – it happens to the best of us.

It is usually a result of information overload. I know all about it – it happens to me all the time!

The best way to get out of this rut is to take a step back and simplify what you do.

Spend your time on the tasks that bring you the greatest return.

9 times out of 10 a lot of what we spend time ANALYZING does not affect our bottom line. It’s nothing more than “busy work? that wastes time.

So how you get out of the over analysis paralysis mode???

The solution is to focus as much energy as is possible on doing the things that really makes us money.

It sounds so simple – but we all get distracted. Email – web pages – audio – video – all that stuff is vying for our attention.

I’m not suggesting you abandon all of the things you do – BUT _ what I am saying is that you can be more successful and you can do this by simply focusing on things that have been proven to work!

In the case of the Article Underground approach to web publishing the following are things that work!

1) Build Web Sites with lots of pages with great words on them – more is better! Keep sites fresh! Add new pages regularly! Every page you add is another income opportunity! If 10 is good 20 is better! Don’t just put up a few pages and then forget the site. Keep it fresh!

2) Get text links – lots of text links to both the home pages of your sites and the inside article pages that have all those great words on them! Links bring top rankings and traffic! You need fresh links! Today and in the future! Every page has the potential to rank on top and bring you traffic! But unless you get good links coming in and pointing at them they will never rise above the competition! Get some links!
 
3) Analyze stats to see where traffic comes from – this one is huge! Study your stats! It is my secret weapon and makes all your other work pay off HUGE!

Our goal is to improve the rankings for keywords that already bring us traffic!

This one is HUGE! You have the power to turn 10 visitors into 100 – often simply by getting a few more text focused links pointing at a page that already is ranking high enough to bring traffic. Make it rank higher! It’s easier than you may think!

The key to success is to avoid wasting time… stop analyzing things that have no impact on success.

Forget about all the other little time wasters and tiny trivial things and focus on what works!

For example – checking your rankings for a list of keywords just because you want to know their rankinsg is a waste of time – I say ONLY check rankings of keywords that bring you traffic – other keywords are worthless – stop wasting time on trivial things!

You find out which keywords bring you traffic by analyzing your stats and looking at the referral URLs!

Link Text – Breaking Patterns and Keeping Natural

To get a top ranking for a keyword phrase on Google and the other search engines, your web page should have that exact keyword phrase on the page itself PLUS it must have good links pointing at the URL (your web page).

If no links point to that URL – Google will assume it is a page with little or no value.

Taking this a step further – links are BEST when they have GOOD KEYWORDS in the LINK TEXT.

LINK TEXT : the text that is found within the LINK pointing at your web page.

A banner or image link is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, but even better is a good text link.

When they see a text link with your keywords in the link text – it helps them to decide how they will rank you when poeple search for that keyword phrase.

Putting the right words on your web pages pages is a step in the right direction, but if Google NEVER sees any of those words in LINK TEXT, either on your site or as linked on other sites, there is very little chance they will rank you on top for any of those keywords.

The solution is to to find out what PHRASES and keywords are on your pages and do your best to get links to your page with the exact words.

HOT TIP: Use the AUKDAT Keyword Density Analyzer Tool to find out what single, 2 word and 3 word phrases appear on your web page. Simply enter a URL and AUKDAT will tell you the words that are on your page (and also show you which words could appear MORE OFTEN! ie if a KEYWORD PHRASE appears more than 2 times it is more likley to bring you traffic).
