Internet Marketing and Better Backlinks - Different? Better?
Squidoo and RSS – All is not as it seems – so be sure to look at the code!
The source code of your squidoo lens pages that is! (go to “Page Source” or “View source” in your browser)
I just realized that the lenses on which I have added RSS Feeds do NOT pass any benefit to the links from the feeds – in fact – it is not even search engine friendly.
What does that mean? Well – all it means is that when you have squidoo show your RSS feeds – the squidoo pages do NOT show any of the words from what it displays – if that’s not bad enough it does not even have the URLs on the page with a “nofollow” – it’s simply code gobblygook and has no seo benefit whatsoever.
That means that Google will NOT see any fresh new words as the RSS feeds change and they will not see the links in the feed items presented.
Squidooo is just one of the many new innovative web 2.0 methods to get some extra traffic to your web pages.
But you need to understand how Squidoo can help. It may appear on the surface you are just helping Squidoo but it really helps you too… There are benefits.
Andrew wrote with concerns about Squidoo.
In case you didn’t get my email, I created a squidoo page… However, I’m a little unsure as to where to go from there… and really, what’s the big deal? My Squidoo page presently has a Pagerank 0…am I supposed to build that up? And if I do, all I can see is Squidoo picking up adsense…what’s really the benefit for me?
First off – squidoo has juice – power – clout with Goo – their pages will rank very easily on top for things that you do not even try to rank for – that is – if you have words on your page – THAT can send you traffic you may not have gotten otherwise.
IF you link to their pages a few times you’ll boost the chance that page will rank top ten. It’s far easier to rank top ten with their page than to start a brand new site and get top ten. Why not have their page and YOUR page in the top ten???
Squidoo is a great place to get free RELEVANT on topic links pointing at your article pages. That’s a great opprtunity for you. That’s the secret… relevant links from relevant pages… (continued – read more of this article…)
If you are OBSESSED with learning as much as you can about “Web 2.0” like I am, you may want to consider buying this ebook I found called “Web 2.0 Traffic System”
I just bought it myself and while it’s $47. to buy (at least it’s not $497. like some other web 2.0 products out there!), you will definitely get on the fast track with this report. It also has a nice bonus.
The section on Squidoo is very thorough and will help get you up and running fast!
If you like to research before you leap – this PDF is worth investing in!
I’ve been quietly studying “web 2.0” in the shadows, but am now coming to the surface and ready to add social bookmarking and web 2.o tactics to the training I provide here on my blog and at Article Underground and other projects in development.
The interesting thing for me about “web 2.0” tactics is that it brings me back to the earliest days of the web (in 1995 for me) when the goal was to publish a web site with real valuable content. That was before we figured out that ranking on top of the search engines for a word could bring us boat loads of money.
Back then it was just TOO EASY to get top rankings than to have to be concerned about creating “valuable content”. As a result time shifted from writing to creating pages with the intention of ranking.
Ironically here we are 11 years later and the trend now is to go back to the basics and provide REAL VALUABLE content and “become an expert”. I’m happy that’s the case!
And you should be too as I’m certain that you are an expert on something!
In the days ahead I’ll be covering the new trends in traffic generation as well as unveiling some interesting projects. I can’t wait to tell you about them.
One of the most exciting Web 2.0 sites I have found is SQUIDOO (how do you say squidoo?).
