SEO link building by begging! How to get links white hat! Good backlinks from authoritative sites

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

In this SEO tutorial video I explain how you can get good links (sometimes called backlinks) to your website from other reputable and authoritative sites that are in your business niche, and are therefore relevant in subject matter to the kind of audience you have. And if you like this tutorial, here is my Amazon author page with the 6 books I wrote. Also, try my full marketing course with over 11 hours of content.

Link building has become very difficult. In fact, you are more likely to get penalized for some link building tactics rather than benefit from them. And if you do not get penalized, quite a few of the strategies to build links to that used to work before, simply no longer work. And that will cause you to waste your time on efforts that have no chance of working.

For those reasons, I recommend that you only go after very high quality links, and don’t hire anyone or any marketing agency to get links for you because that is often quite a waste. What you should do instead is focus on getting publicity.

The way you get publicity is by using HARO which is a site for reporters who tend to look for expert sources for their stories. And if you can provide the expert opinion for their stories, they will quote you in their articles and link to you from the websites from which they write. You can do exactly the same thing with radio and podcasts by signing up for http://www.radioguestlist.com and appearing as a guest on podcast or radio. Once the episode airs, most of these will have a website from which they will link to yours. That is all you need to do in order to get great links and boost your SEO long-term.

How many times or how often should you post and update your Facebook business page

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

In this tutorial I explain what the right number of times that you should update your Facebook business page or a fan page in order to get the most engagement with your updates. And if you like this tutorial, here is my Amazon author page with the 6 books I wrote. Also, try my full marketing course with over 11 hours of content.

While there are general guidelines, since there are so many different kinds of businesses out there, there are many different kinds of business pages and fan pages as well. And there are many different styles and tastes of running them. For different industries, different strategies may be more or less appropriate.

For most common types of business pages, about once or twice a day is the best schedule for posting Facebook updates. If you don’t have that much time to devote to updating Facebook, you might want to slow down your Facebook updates to only a few per week, and instead to focus on the quality and engagement of your updates. To get more engagement, try to post articles or videos which come with very vivid visuals, and that are already popular on the web. Facebook knows which articles are good because guess what, those articles already have many likes on them. And so Facebook will show those articles to more of your fans and you will get more engagement with your posts.

When you increase engagement on your Facebook updates, Facebook begins showing your posts to more people, and you begin to get more exposure.

In this video I show you how you can post photos that encourage likes and share on Facebook. It is a little bit of a growth hack that can go a long way. Try this strategy and see whether it can help you generate more likes, shares and overall engagement on your Facebook page.

Increasing Facebook engagement on your posts can help you in two ways. First, the Facebook algorithm will begin to show your updates to more people which will give you more immediate visibility. Second, more engagement such as likes, shares, and comments will help you boost the SEO (search engine optimization) of whatever content you are posting in your Facebook updates.

Twitter analytics tutorial. How to use Twitter analytics & use it to improve tweets and get insights

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

In this tutorial I explain how to use Twitter analytics to see which of your tweets get more engagement and general exposure. And if you like this tutorial, here is my Amazon author page with the 6 books I wrote. Also, try my full marketing course with over 11 hours of content.

And try this awesome video tutorial with 25 Twitter marketing strategies that will take your tweeting to the next level.

Using Twitter analytics can give you more insight into how well your tweets perform, and which of your twitter techniques are more effective than others. Using Twitter analytics can help you become better at using Twitter for business and personal use.

In the video I walk you through my own personal Twitter account, and show you the results of different tweets. You can see that the difference in engagement can be over 1000%. Yes, that is a thousand percent. Do I have your attention now? Having analytics allows you to run tests to see what kinds of tweets do better, and get more people clicking on them and sharing them. In the video I show you that bland tweets or ones that are auto-generated, do not get much engagement. But tweets that have proven to drive engagement in the past, continue to perform well.

Using Twitter analytics, which is completely free, you can learn precisely which of your tweets perform best, and begin to reproduce what is working. Without Twitter analytics, it is much more of a guessing game, which isn’t a good thing.

How to make a Google Plus post to boost and improve SEO

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

In this tutorial I explain how to boost your SEO with Google Plus. Many people don’t realize this, but when you create a new Google Plus update, that update actually has its own web url, and is able to be searchable in Google. And if you like this tutorial, here is my Amazon author page with the 6 books I wrote. Also, try my full marketing course with over 11 hours of content.

In addition, you are able to structure your Google Plus posts to resemble a real page. You can create a title section, a little description section, the body of your post, and even a footer are where you should add your hashtags. You can also embed videos and photos in your Google Plus posts to help the SEO of your videos and any other links you put into your Google Plus updates.

Another great thing you can do is to try to grow the number of your Google Plus followers. The more followers you have, the more authority your posts will have within a specific niche.

Personally, I try to use Google Plus all the time when I need to help my content rank in Google search or YouTube search. Since I started using Google Plus as one of the social networks where I promote my content I have seen a boost in search rankings of some of the content that I promoted there. This doesn’t happen with all content, but I do see that it helps quite often.

Facebook advertising with boosted posts: strategies to increase Facebook engagement & get more likes

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

In this tutorial I explain a Facebook advertising strategy which Facebook is pushing forward.

And if you like this tutorial, here is my Amazon author page with the 6 books I wrote. Also, try my full marketing course with over 11 hours of content.

That strategy is called boosted posts. Boosted posts are Facebook’s way to allow you to reach more people with your group or business page update. You can use the boosted posts paid advertising option to reach the people who already liked your page, and people, or to reach new people who might be interested in learning about the kind of content you are promoting.

Facebook boosted posts can be a good way to get more people to like your updates, and to get more people to like your business page or a fan page. Additionally, if the post you are making is promotional and potentially lucrative, I recommend experimenting with getting traffic to that post to potentially help you sell products or services. Although if you pay for traffic, you might as well pay for direct traffic that clicks on an ad that takes those people to your website.

In this tutorial I explain how I used the Facebook boosted post option to reach over 10,000 people for just $10 which is a very good rate. I also show that I got nearly 200 likes on one of my posts with this strategy.

The boosted posts option is also great for SEO. When you reach many people, some of them will like, share and comment on your posts. When they do that, that sends positive engagement signals to Google. Google factors that into their algorithm, and content with more social activity around it from the top social sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest and a few others, gets an advantage over content which does not have much social activity around it. And the Facebook boosted posts option is a cheap way to boost your content’s social sharing metrics.

Best time of the day to tweet to reach your followers, get more engagement and retweets

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

In this tutorial I explain what is the best time of the day and week to tweet in order to get more engagement on your tweets, and get more people to retweet your tweets and to click on whatever links you post in your tweets.

Additionally, here is my Amazon author page with the 6 business books I wrote and try my full marketing course with over 11 hours of content.

And try this awesome video tutorial with 25 Twitter marketing strategies that will take your tweeting to the next level.

In this tutorial I go over some research that shows that the best time of the day to tweet is approximately from 9-5pm. And if you have longer-form content you are promoting, it might be a good idea to tweet in the evenings when people might have more time to read longer articles. Additionally, since web traffic is typically lower on the weekends, you the best days to tweet are Monday through Friday. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are typically the heaviest web traffic days of the week and Friday is the lowest traffic day of the weekdays.

How to create a good Facebook group or fan page that increase traffic to your website

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

In this tutorial I explain how to create a good Facebook business page or a Facebook fan page in terms of how it appears to users, and its conversion and effectiveness at driving people to your website.

Try my full marketing course with over 11 hours of content. And here is my Amazon author page with the 6 books I wrote.

And try this video with 25 Facebook marketing strategies:

The most important thing is the big banner image. The big banner image on your fan page or business page should represent your brand. It is very big, and it is the first thing people see. So try to make it very good and visually appealing. If it can tell the story of your business, that is even better.

Another thing you can do to make your Facebook business page or fan page better is to add a nice logo, and include a link to your business in the about blurb that Facebook allows you to add. Most importantly, try to write engaging posts so that more people will naturally see your posts.

Here is my new Facebook group which has a nice new big banner.

I recently made a new Facebook group with a big banner that represents my brand and I used a nice big banner which I had made for me on Fiverr for just $5. So creating such a banner is virtually free, and once you have a good banner, you can use it for your YouTube channel, Facebook and other social websites.

Facebook page is not effective. Boosted posts on Facebook can generate engagement to boost SEO

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Facebook page is not effective. This tutorial discusses how to get Facebook engagement to boost SEO via boosted post. Also, try my full marketing course with over 11 hours of content.

In this tutorial I explain that free marketing with Facebook is very ineffective, and I show how Facebook only shows business page updates to about 1% of the people who liked a given page. That makes things very difficult when you try to promote your business and get engagement. In the video I show you how to cheaply get lots of engagement, likes, shares and comments on our Facebook posts. Once you get engagement with boosted posts, that engagement can help you rank in Google search.

Facebook boosted posts isn’t the best option to get customers from Facebook, but it is a good option to get engagement for a post. And that engagement can help your Google SEO. So it is a complex strategy.

I have personally used Facebook boosted posts to drive thousands of people to my posts and generate great engagement in the form of likes, comments and shares. Those positive social signals helped me boost the SEO of the content I am promoting in the Facebook posts, and ultimately rank in Google for whatever search terms I am targeting. So I sometimes use Facebook boosted posts to help get my YouTube videos to rank in YouTube and my blog posts or web pages to rank in Google.
