Seo At The End of 2014


A lot of people are asking whether Seo is dead.  So some of the landscape has changed over the last couple of years and many people who were making a decent living with their Seo have no abandoned it altogether which kind is levels the playing field for the rest of us.

It is being said is that it is easier now with seo of than it is ever been.  Whether that is true or not is debatable.  Clearly the ways of doing their Seo have changed and those folks using spamming techniques which were successful two or three years ago have largely moved on to pastures new.

So what can be taken from the new landscape and so should we approach your Seo?  The first thing is to be aware that Google is looking for user metrics.  That is what use are doing on your site, whether or not would like your content demonstrated by the amount of time they stay on your site or whether they bounce off it quickly, and of course the content which is clearly linked to whether people stay on your site or not..

Make sure you have the links too offsite references, be it authority sites or Wikipedia or whatever.

Get related links from related sites.  If you have a site about dog training for example, then you don’t need to load of links from weight loss sites.  Your links now need to the niche relevant.

Don’t keep repeating keywords acrossn the page or across the site.  Google considers this spam and it should be avoided.

Don’t make content for contents sake.  Your most likely to write crap content if you pressurise yourself to write something every day for example.  Avoid low quality content now at all costs.

Personally I would avoid popups.  Google doesnt like the user process to be interrupted, and there is no bigger user interruption that the pesky popup.  Added to that if you find them irritating so will your users.

If you are building a website for local businesses, then you need to have clear contact details, and robust company information.  You need to ensure that there are no spelling and grammatical errors, all pages have been checked for 404 errors.  You want to make sure that the website has been fully proof read.

The there are lots of other factors to take into account, like the social signals, interaction with your sites and web comments which had been gradually increasing the last couple of years but these are just point is to engagement with your content.

This is a simple summary of of where we are at with seo at the end of 2014.

Income Society A Brand New Way To Make Money Online

If you have tried and failed to make money online or even if you have never tried at all you may want to take a look at Income Society by Adeel Chowdhry a brand new way of helping you finally crack internet marketing.

Like many internet programs, this is not some quick get rich promise, there is a serious piece of training involved and it wont be something which happens overnight. To take full advantage of it, it will pay you to upgrade and if are the type to give up and jump ship early then best save your money and spend it on more useless programs from “gurus” who have never made a dime online themselves but make their money out of pretending they have and who will sell you a worthless program to waste your money.


Unlike other make money online systems this one is just a little bit different and it isn’t a traditional affiliate opportunity either its actually a franchise and you buy the opportunity to use the marketing and promotional machine behind it. That means in effect that you don’t need to set up a website or an autoresponder or spend huge amounts of time setting up a marketing infrastructure, its all in place for you and if you don’t want to spend time trying to get traffic, then for a price, they will do that as well- send you high converting traffic to add to your bottom line. Added to which you get tons of training in well thought out, professional videos presented in a systematic way in a full training program. At the moment there are over 20 separate sections with a series of videos in each taking you through all of the ways they make money and you can follow and repeat


The person behind income society is Adeel Chowdhry and he has made a lot of money online. His self professed aim is to enable ten thousand others to do the same. He has spent a lot of money to bring this particular program to market and it was beta tested before being put on general release.. Obviously he will want to make money out of it himself and it certainly isn’t the cheapest out there but as a franchise opportunity it is unique in the internet marketing world.


The beauty of a franchise is that you get to share in the profits as well. There is a marketing machine behind Income society with a number of products on sale. The squeeze pages, the payment machinery, the customer support and of course the products are already there and you get to promote that as a franchisee. Think of it like a Mcdonalds. You don’t have to prepare the product, that’s done, you don’t have to get paypal or another type of payment method in place, you don’t have to work out how to deliver the products, there is a system in place. All you have to do is deilver the traffic, they will convert it for you and if you don’t want to do that they will do that for you as well. It really is a business in a box. There is a review I posted on youtube at which gives you an inside look.


There are a number of products involved with different price points which will appeal to different buyers but they are already in place, you don’t have to make that training program or write that ebook.


Making money online has never been as easy as many gurus have suggested and in fact it it a whole lot harder than it used to be. There are literally tons of internet marketing products out there and many of them will not work using outdated techniques. Added to that is the software which never works from day one and is not supported and you will see that it is a minefield. With the training and support coming from Income society you will finally get a chance to make some sales and start to make some serious money online.

How To Make Money From Your Blog

There are lots of reasons to have an informative, engaging blog with lots of well written content consistently updated, and one of the most pressing reasons why you should have one is to make some money. Whether your blog is about dieting or rabbit hutches or being a parent, each post should be written with the ultimate goal of making money.

More and more people are spending time online and at least 20% of those are reading content. You need to make that content user friendly. Interestingly 85% of consumers now search for local businesses online which demonstrates just how far the internet market has reached in a very short space of time






How do you go about making an online income with a blog?

Find your niche


Find your niche and build your website around it. With the recent google updates, having a wide niche or even worse a website with lots of generic material, is a no no. If you have a niche like weight loss for example narrow it down to something like weight loss for the new mother for example.


Write every day


Or at least every week. You need quality targeted content to help your site rank. This helps to


  • Engage the visitors to your site , keeping them there longer and increasing the  chances they’ll join your email list or buy from you.
  • Builds a relationship with your visitors.  People are far more likely to trust you enough to buy off you and buy higher priced products and services from you when they feel they have a relationship with you.
  • Acts like a search engine magnet …getting Google’s attention, building your Google rankings and your traffic from search engines.
  • Attracts high quality backlinks and social media shares from people who like your content. This brings traffic directly and helps to boost your Google rankings even more.

You also need to promote and share those blog posts. Spend some time in promotion and share on Facebook, linkedln and others to show your content to the world and garner more links and shares


You should write about engaging topics and mention an affiliate product in passing. You shouldn’t go for overkill though. If you are writing about a product directly or listing five things to get a new baby, one of which happens to link to an affiliate product then that should not feel too forced for comfort.


You may also be wondering how to get started with affiliate marketing and what it is exactly. In summary, affiliate marketing is a way of making online money without the need to have a product of your own to sell. You are in effect the middleman and for every product sold you get a cut. I am not going to pretend that you will get floods of money overnight, its a longterm process and there are many skills involved which are outside the remit of this article but it is certainly worth investigating if you are thinking of starting online or if you are already established and looking for ways to monetize your blog.

Affiliate marketing involves finding the right sort of keywords to target with small amounts of competition and then finding a product which is a good fit for your target keywords. The trick is also in finding a product which converts well with a decent affiliate commission. There will be further articles on this topic to follow
