Websites for Sale - Ranking Your Website

by

In case you are looking for websites for sale, then you can be certain that you have come to the right place. However, even with these websites, you will want to ensure that they are working well and that they get a great rank on search engines. Otherwise, the importance of the websites will be diminished greatly.

The main thing to note about these websites for sale is that some of them will rank high on Google within 8 weeks while others will take over 8 months before they can start ranking among the top search results. Keep in mind that thousands upon the thousands of different web sites are put out there every single day. Therefore, in case yours is a new one, it will take a considerable amount of time before your site can be noticed by the Google search engine or any other search engine for that matter.

You will also be very well advised to remember that new web sites are generally considered to be unpopular seeing as not so many people are aware of their existence. In the same way, very few other web sites have links to a new site.

Therefore, the length of time it will take for your site to get ranked high in Google will depend on the total amount of web sites that are linked to yours. Such links will enable Google to index your site and thus get you a higher rank on search results. However, it is important to ensure that such links are complementary of your web site content.

Along the same lines, in case your site represents a small business, it will be necessary that you either undertake to be a lot more original as compared to your competitors or to spend much more money on marketing your site than do your competitors.

It will also be helpful for your cause if your have original material that is of a higher quality than the other sites that are related to your own and competing for the same customer base. To do this, ensure that you spend more than adequate time building on your overall brand on the internet.

Also, undertake to discover just how competitive the key words and key phrases you have chosen are. This can be achieved by searching through the internet for these key words and phrases. In case the results you get are low, then you will need to work even harder to ensure that your site will get listed higher after two or three months.

However, in case the results you got are way higher, the implication being made is that you will be required to put in even greater effort to ensure that your rank goes up higher. Review the age of competing web sites and do all it takes to oust them.

Finally, we can conclude by stating that in case the keywords you chose have been taken over by larger companies, it will almost be impossible for you to outdo them. They can afford to spend more on search engine optimization. Therefore, your last resort should be to look for less competitive key words and phrases.

How The Recent Google Changes Have Impacted Internet and Affiliate Marketing

by

When Internet marketing and affiliate marketing broke out a number of years ago, people were noting it as the fastest growing industry in the world for jobs, and this is probably a true statement given all of the facts about it. Now, people have found all kinds of different ways to go about succeeding in this industry. People have come up with secrets, methods, products, and different ways of making money here. If you go to some of the forums online, you will find all kinds of threads where people are posting all kinds of products that they are selling, and they are all different ways to “succeed” in this industry. So, as you can see, Internet marketing has truly made a huge impact on the “online job” industry. Now, one of the biggest protagonists in this field is the powerful search engine, Google, and over the years, they have made quite a few changes to they way that they operate, and because of these changes over the years, it has truly had a huge impact on Internet marketing and affiliate marketing.

We will talk more about what Google has done recently that has really changed the game altogether, but first, lets discuss how things used to work. When Internet marketing first came on the scene, it was a very common practice to use article marketing as a tool to get backlinks to your website in order to make more sales. Well, people were basically writing articles left and right to try to get more backlinks to their site, and they weren’t even writing unique articles, they were basically just rewriting the same article (with different wording) over and over again. This worked for a while, but Google eventually caught on to what was happening, and then made some algorithm changes and came out with the Panda update, so that duplicated content would be DE indexed from Google, and future duplicated content would be rejected Google. This had a pretty big impact on spun articles as well. So, this was one of the first big game-changers for everyone in the field of Internet marketers.

Now why did Google have such a problem with these types of content?

Well, the problem really was that people weren’t having that awesome Google experience anymore, because when they typed their searches in, they were being taken to 15 or so pages of the same garbage being said over and over and over again, and a lot of this information was not relevant at all, it was just articles people had put together in order to drive people to their affiliate links.

So this is from back around late 2009-early 2010, and more recently here, Google has made even more changes to their policies and has mad the Internet marketers job even trickier. Truly, you have to think harder and smarter now if you’re going to succeed in this industry and stay high on Google’s “good list.”

Recently, Google has made some big-time changes in the fact that they are starting to shut down blog networks that allow marketers to do link building. Blog networks up till this point have been really useful because of their easiness to use and the power of link building that they offer. The trick was to pay for a service to get into blog network that was private, and from there the person would create short articles around 200 words that included the backlink, and they would be able to publish to many, many blog pages that were owned by the company. This worked very well and was allowing a lot of people to make a lot of money, a huge income in fact! It worked so well, that Google decided it was time to pull the plug on this strategy, and they have begun to de-index the blogs that have been put into their system, thus ending the link building bonanza that has been going on lately.

Well what does this mean?

It means that all of these blog pages are not coming up in the searches, and so all those great backlinks that the person has is now completely and totally worthless! Now, not every blog network has been shut down…yet, but they are on Google’s radar, and will be getting canned very soon, so, it may be time for you to start trying to find a better way to prosper.

Google has come out to say that over the next several months, they will be making several more changes to really impact SEO in general, and that articles will be de-indexed from Google based on “user experience”. This is a big impact on Internet marketers, maybe the biggest yet, as SEO is really the bread and butter of Internet marketing. I mean, how is one to even get their article to show up with using search engine optimization? According to Google, they are only going to be looking for the best of the best. This is going to really hurt the “not-so-skilled” writers, will almost surely completely shut down any companies who do spun articles, and will hurt many of the article writing businesses that provide “less than high quality” content.

When Google makes these next set of changes later this year, Internet marketers are going to have to work even harder to make money. They will have to spend more time making sure that the content that they are publishing is unique in context, is full of engaging and informative information, and is not bloated with things that Google will see as SEO. The typical 3% keyword density might be way too much after these changes occur.

The recent Google changes have really impacted the Internet and affiliate marketing in general. Over the next year, Google will make even more changes, and will probably be the biggest game-changer yet. Google is both the best friend and the worst enemy of an Internet marketer, they can’t live with them, but they can’t live without them. Taking time to start honing your skills and getting ready for these changes will see that you are ahead of the crowd when Google slaps everyone silly later this year and truly begins to separate the “men from the boys.”
