Internet Marketing and Better Backlinks - Different? Better? Find out why.

News and information for online web publishing professionals!

When you change the way you look at things – the things you look at change!

Thanks to all of you for all the great questions. I understand how you guys feel.

Part of the secret to success, at least for me, is to think POSITIVE!

May I please ask you guys to consider a quote by the great Wayne Dyer.

“When you change the way you look at things – the things you look at change.”

I’d like to ask you guys to consider all the wonderful possibilities that 400 keyword stuffed articles would provide a member.

On the surface it may seem like 350 people will use the articles exactly the same way, however a big part of the Article Underground membership is showing and encouraging members how to use the articles to build tightly themed sites of all shapes and sizes by hand.  I encourage members to add unique twists and make their web sites BETTER than the others out there!

There are a number of forum posts and videos for members showing how to make the articles “your own” by adding additional keywords, custom templates, resources, links, extra H1 tags and even breaking up the articles and much much more.

I could talk for an hour about this, but a short simple concise answer is that while a few members may submit the articles to directories (which they are encouraged to do ONLY if they modify the articles by the way), the majority of members use the articles as part of the ‘content toolbox”, not so much for submitting to directories.

If they do, they must modify the article significantly.

I like to think of the 400 articles as a “toolkit for SEOE’s (Search engine Optimization Experts)” that enable us to build web sites and pages about words that have been researched to get traffic and make money.

I am not targeting people who want to build “pre-made niche sites” or have articles categorized for them so they can make sites without doing anything else. I encourage members to make decisions like that so that there are unique qualities to everybody’s web sites. The little extra creative decision making can go a long way to earning more traffic!

Some people do resist and struggle with the concept of having to do a little extra work like categorize the articles, but most applaud my suggestions and say they agree they are better off by categorizing themselves. Believe me, I do not want anyone to do more work than they need to, but categorizing articles and making sites unique is very important. Why let someone else group the articles??? There will only be too many others that are just like it! Cookie cutter is not in my vocabulary!

The common denominator about the Article Underground articles is that they are written about “money words”. Highly researched words that can get good click money, rank easily and actually get decent traffic.

Not everyone can get #1 for the phrase the article is written for. But you don’t need to get #1 for every article. Plus once you start adding in the words from templates, resource boxes, introductions, commentaries, summaries, disclaimers, links, categories and on and on, you will find that you’ll be getting all kinds of traffic beyond simply the words the article was optimized for.

The optimization is important, in that it will help trigger the best Google ads, but because of the ways that people search, web pages will get much more traffic for unusual one of a kind obscure combination phrases than any one single keyword phrase. That’s just the way it works.
The idea is to put as many WORDS on your web sites as possible in many different ways and combinations.

If you have good linking, both internally and externally, you almost can’t help but get a huge amount of traffic. especially when you consider all the great words you get right out of the box with the Article Underground articles! It starts you off way ahead of the pack!

BUT do you want to just settle for second best??? Why not take that good beginning and put a little creativity into it and make those  pages gain even more opportunities to get traffic??? You do that by enhancing the pages with extra words. Similar words – related words – more of the same words etc.

I show Article Underground members exactly how to do this! There are many ways and I help you discover what works best for your way of doing things!

So – I have a question for you…

IS there a scarcity or abundance of FREE TRAFFIC available to us???

Well, it all depends on how you look at things. Not only am I an optimist but I know from doing research that there are an almost endless number of keywords and phrases that are just begging for someone to do a few things right so that they can give us the top rankings! REALLY!

Let me give you some numbers… Maybe this will help you. Remember “When you change the way you look at things – the things you look at change!”

There are three PRIMARY search engines that each have 10 top ten positions ripe for the taking.

The Article Underground articles are written about KEYWORD PHRASES that are so easy to rank on they are like shooting fish in a barrel. They’re LOW HANGING FRUIT! Go pick ’em!

OK, 3 big search engines

3 x 10 = 30 top ten positions for US for EACH KEYWORD PHRASE.

So there are 30 top ten positions available per keyword PHRASE (most articles are about 2 and 3 word phrases and longer).

So right there… there aren’t 10 top ten positions, there are 30.

30 top ten positions x 400 articles = 12,000 top ten positions available per article set.

As you know, all it takes is a few good top tens and you can make a lot of money.

You do not NEED top tens on ALL OF YOUR WEB PAGES!

Just 1 or 2 or 10 can make you rich! That’s for real! Some top ten rankings will bring you more traffic than all your other pages combined!

I also help Article Underground members to realize that it isn’t just the traffic you get from the primary phrase that makes you money, but from all the unusual one of a kind combinations of words and phrases.

I encourage AU Members to add more related and similar money words to their web pages that the articles are on. I show exactly how to do it! It’s easy!

So, in reality those 12,000 available top ten positions can be multiplied out several times because each article has several secondary keyword phrases and many 100’s of combinations of keywords.

So let’s have some fun and play with NUMBERS.

30 top ten positions x 400 articles = 12,000 top tens

What if each article also had 5 secondary phrases that also brought traffic???

30 x 400 = 12,000 x 5 =  60,000 additional positions + 12,000 = 72,000 possible top ten positions that will bring traffic in each set of 400 articles.

72,000 possible available top ten positions with each set of 400 articles… and that’s being conservative.

So, let’s divide that pie equally among all our members in each set – 72,000 divided by 350 members = 205 top ten ranked pages per member.

Is that enough for you???

Even if you goit 10% of that, say 20 top tens, you’d be doing pretty good!

The point is that there are SO MANY TOP TEN RANKINGS that are available to bring you free search engine traffic that worrying about whether other members steal your traffic is a waste of time.

The potential is almost INFINITE. There is so much money out there – all you have to do is a little smart work to go and get your share.

So, have you changed the way you look at things???

Scarcity is a myth… abundance! That’s what’s out there! Lots of money for everyone! Not just a few!

BUT you need to earn it! It won’t just come to you.

Talking about LOOKING AT THINGS DIFFERENTLY, I’d like to introduce one of the great minds of Internet Marketing! Mr. Leslie Rohde of Optilink fame!

Leslie is one of those few great minds that always sees things differently. Just talking about seemingly simple things with Leslie will open up my eyes and my mind almost every time!

So, if you have a minute please look at what Leslie had prepared which explains how he LOOKED AT the Article Underground concept.

Check out these 3 links:




Those pages are brilliant! I couldn’t have said it better myself!

The point is that when you look at the 400 articles as an opportunity to add unique creative content to your web sites, a whole new world of opportunity opens up. There are truly 1,000’s of different ways to use the content.

So I truly believe all 350 people who get each article set can easily make back much greater than the 97 bucks they invested and hopefully many times more than that if they just use a little creativity!

“When you change the way you look at things – the things you look at change!”

Happy article marketing!

  12. I like the tone of this article, it’s inspiring. I have been doing article marketing for a while but not too heavily. I have decided to really step up my game plan and churn out lot of unique articles and add them to my many sites too.

  13. I’m glad you put the link to this post in the folder – completely changed my perspective. I have a few of those “cookie cutter” sites, and they are useless unless you put in a ton of work redoing them (and the quality of the content is lacking besides, so that has to be fixed too). I’d rather take quality AU content and use it my own way as suggested. It’s easier to build upon quality than deconstruct/reconstruct the mediocre.

  14. I totally agree with this article and I guess in the end it’s all in your mind. If you think small, you’ll get little results but if you think big the better the reward.

    What makes Internet marketing so exciting and challenging at the same time is the infinite possibilities or perhaps I say profits you can make. I’ve written an article about menopause 2 years ago and I still get money from affiliate commissions…

  20. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index, which covers both A and B shares, shed 102.72 points to 3,369.99.The index slumped 37 percent in the first quarter of 2008, posting the biggest percentage quarterly drop in 15 years.”The market stayed in a downward trend as the government has not issued major market-boosting policies.” said Liao Wenkai, an analyst at Hengtai Securities.”Investor confidence was severely hit by recent sharp falls and they are overreacting to any negatives.” Liao also added that China’s high inflation would be a drag on corporate earnings.Luo, Wang Fengxiu and the other senior citizens in and around the stadium may not have to worry about employment when the situation returns to normal. Children too don’t have to worry about missing classes and disrupting their education because tent schools, which can hold up to 2,000 students, have been set up outside Jiuzhou Stadium.But adults like Wang Jun have to wait till the fear of strong

  21. Hi Mike,
    What a great saying “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change” and so true.
    I think many people give up foo fast. IM is constant but rewarding work. I always say “Rome wasn’t built in a day” Positive thinking is what keeps us moving forward and taking action. Tony Robbins is another great motivator.

  24. A lot of marketers do tend to stick with what they know. As a consequence, they fail to see other opportunities that they could have otherwise seen if they just tried to think out of the box.
