(I know some people may take the following advice seriously. Please don’t…)
SEO is the future of everything. By harnessing the power of this tried and tested technique you can dominate the world and make sure your website ranks number one for popular search terms like ‘how to get red wine stains out of upholstery ‘ and ‘Megan Fox in the buff’. SEO will make you literally millions of dollars in revenue and anyone who isn’t using it will probably go out of business quite soon. The internet is now a huge part of everyone’s lives, and has been since about 2007.
Even old people are using the internet, and would be very well advised to utilise SEO to build authority around their blog and drive traffic to their network of sites.
So how can you do SEO on your own site to make thousands of dollars in revenue every day from the comfort of your own home?
First of all, you need to make sure your site looks really cool, if your site isn’t covered in flash animations and colourful lettering, your bounce rate will be through the roof. Make sure you have a really eye catching banner, tonnes of photos and every conceivable social media widget on your site.
Find the most searched keywords around your brand, and peruse them relentlessly; completely ignore useless long tail terms. The best terms are certainly ones that comprise of only one or two words, since most internet users are lazy and illiterate and thus don’t care for wasting their time typing when they could be on Facebook doing more important stuff.
When it comes to competitor research, the best method is to shamelessly copy your closest rival. Find out where their best links are coming from and try and get them yourself, even if they are totally irrelevant to your business, it really doesn’t matter – follow the SEO mantra – a link is a link.
When it comes to link-building more is more. You need to get as many links out there as quickly possible. It really doesn’t matter how you do this, just get links where you can – comment spamming, hidden text it’s all good. I’ve recently heard a lot of buzz about content farms, these also sound like a great way to get 100’s of links out there ASAP – give it a go!
The internet is changing, SEO is now dead and social media rules the roost. Since rankings now don’t matter, you need to find revenue streams in other ways. Use Facebook and Twitter to ENGAGE with you target audience and build ADVOCACY with your brand. Sorted.
