What really is PPP?

In the online advertising world, people have been doing this in several ways and one of the most effective ways are ranking high in organic results in search engines. But some how, this has been getting more and more competitive in some markets like in the Pharmaceutical, Porn and Online Gambling industry. And this is where spamming was the last result of these types of companies, from spamming email, spamming forums, spamming blogs, and everything. But spam just does not really work. Nice written write up contents still work best. So the PayPerPost.com that pay bloggers to have ads on blogs is a good way to spread the news, but I have heard from somewhere that PayPerPost.com, PPP is really just a bait for many bloggers to start blogging about Viagra and Porn websites in the future and PPP really meant Porn and Pills for Pharmaceuticals.

Gambling Online?

At work. At Geary Interactive, I would hear Frank sometimes go to Andy To, and talk about their online poker playing they do at home. How much they win, how much they lose. How they are doing, etc. Frank who once mentioned he lost big-time, he still wins often and seems to make money. But for me, I am not doing this game. I can divert my attention on other things that for me are like games too. I may not be betting, but I am also at risk of cost like in paying for PPC ads and also with chances of winning, with actual sales generated through affiliate marketing. It’s still is a game to me. If ever I would do online gambling like Frank and Andy does, I would use The Gambling Guide so I can work my way in learning to win in poker (texas hold’em, stud), roulette, blackjack, sports betting, football betting, spread betting, horse racing, race betting, and whatever online gambling that exists.

Problogger’s first impressions on PayPerPost.com

Problogger Darren Rose thinks PayPerPost.com degrades blog quality.Darren Rowse is an excellent blogger. And he has made a living out of blogging. He blogs for profit. His site is problogger.com. He even provides some consultancy on how to make profits out of blogging and is an authority in the field. But he does not believe in PayPerPost.com. He has cited several websites as well that do not like the idea. And a general pattern I see is getting paid per post decreases the credibility of the post and will just pollute the blogosphere.

I Get Paid to Blog. And I believe it is the same in the real world from face-to-face product endorsments, radio, TV and print. An article in a magazine, an interview on the radio or TV, it is all about promoting yourself or promoting your service, or promoting your product. Many post against PayPerPost.com talk about approval and reviews, that is it not screened. But as for my post, I have had rejected postings and I needed to edit them to get them approved. They also talk about people giving reviews on a product or service without trying them. This is the responsibility of the blogger. I do not want to give reviews personally of something I haven’t tried. But I give my opinions on a product based on what they are offering. And many advertisers give free samples of their product or service for testing purposes.

3 SEO Life Stories…

He does SEO?

I attended a seminar on Internet Marketing by Adam Urbanski last July 20. It was a small group, maybe about 10 to 15 people only. And everyone was required to say a few stuff about themselves. I kept my self-description conservative and just said I know technical stuff in making websites, and I came to the class to learn more of the marketing side. How to market well online. Although I could say I have a fair knowledge of Internet marketing, but I was not there to say what I know, but I was there to learn other stuff I may not know yet. Even just a few small tips.

One participant, I can still remember how he introduced himself. He said he was also into Internet marketing, and SEO, I may not remember what he said word for word, but I do remember clearly one line he said, while he was addressing what he was saying to the speaker… he said “…You see, I do what you do too…” So he must know what he is saying.

Right after the seminar, I just did the same thing I did with the Sean Roach Internet Marketing seminar I attended. I SEO’d it. And it was generating traffic and a little more hits that translates to earnings of course for those that know how to make money out of traffic. It was not like an additional really big bucks, but it was still a little more to add to still give it some increase.

Just this afternoon, this participant that also does what Adam Urbanski does, calls me up since we exchanged cards and ask me about some other matters related to the course. And I mentioned that my other blog was ranking 1 for Adam Urbanski Internet Marketing as well other other keyphrases. And he asked how did I do it? Well for me, all I did was just the basics, I did no serious hard core competitive SEO yet, but since no one else was targeting it, it was easy to rank 1 right away. And an experienced SEO guy would have just laughed probably and find it funny I was targetting it. But now that I mentioned the story here. Maybe someone might be trying to beat me at number 1 for this keyphrase and I do not care. This was just for fun anyway. Maybe I will be more competitive if it was a paid SEO client. Uh oh, My SEO clients might have high expectations this time *LOL*. But this is what I have to say to my SEO clients, if you are not ranking number 1 for your general terms, do not worry, let’s target the tail and just keep in mind that our objective is to increase conversions. Not just get the number 1 spot on every term.

Remove Company Name

Every company name has a keyphrase tail to target. And this tail is still related usually to the company’s product or service. I targetted a keyphrase in this format: company name blog. It just took 2 days to get the number 1 spot. But the company talked to me and asked if I can remove the company name on my blog. And you know, these people are really nice guys and I have no intention in going to battle with them just over a simple search term. Actually I personally know how to over throw my own entry by the official company site and get the number 1 spot. But I guess it is also a matter of other legal issues that I cannot place the company name. Well ok, I took it out, although I still rank number 1 for it even if I took it out, Google should reindex soon and see the changes.

SEO Contest, SEO Contest, SEO Contest

I am getting tired of Isulong SEOph SEO Contest. Comparing it with Ambatchdotcom and Vogermilten that has $4k and $10k respectively with not even half of the people in the SERPs in Isulong SEOph that has already 800,000+ pages in the SERPs all battling for that number 1 spot with a prize less than $2k. I find it funny. But the reason why Isulong SEOph just has so many entries, is because of the SEOPhilippines community as well. The group just interacts so well with each other that everyone is having fun, sharing, talking about SEO, and website monetizations. We have seen several non-Filipinos in the list already because maybe also of the popularity, but predominantly, they are still all Filipinos. I did an IP change on one of my Isulong SEOph entries not only for a new class-C IP, but for a regional advantage as well. I think I am just going to mildly play around with Ambatchdotcom and consider to seriouly work on Vogermilten. But there is still a lot time for that. In this contest I joined, I have been in and out of page 1 with the highest rank i reached was 7, but I still get pushed back to page 2 or even page 3 sometimes. I once had a rank 3, but it just looked like Google glitch or someting, and only lasted a few hours when the other sites were missing. Oh well, let’s see how it goes. At least get into the final 7 sites, and hopefully I can ask for a vacation for the awarding if ever I do get in. Oh well, let’s see. I am a bit lazy compared to the other competitors. But maybe, actually hopefully I will get some second wind by mid-August.
