How to Get Started Using Google Webmaster Tools

Many people wonder if it is worthwhile to take the time and effort to create an xml google site map, in the hopes of it improving their ranking or quality score with Google.

For most of us small business owners, we do not have access to the hosting server to put the Google software tool on to do it automatically, and some don’t know xml from an xray.

But there is hope!

There is one easy way to get your site spidered by Google quickly at least once a week. How can you ‘talk’ to Google more often?

In your free GMAIL account, there are various free tools. One of the tabs, Webmaster Tools, has a way to VERIFY your domain with Google by putting a small piece of code in the metatag on your homepage. (Look on the top left when you are logged in to gmail and choose More count if you want to see a full list of all the things Google offers for free within Gmail.

Once you get to the next screen you will see an icon that looks like a group of computers in various colors.

Once you verify your account, you will start getting great reports on what people are not only searching for, but clicking through on, the top 20 for each, and what you rank on for each of these terms as well.

It also shows all your internal and external links, pages, and most important keywords. It also shows the exact date and time since your site was last spidered.

It is a completely free tool and gives a range of traffic reports about your site, most of which you can download as CSV files.

The reports give you the knowledge of what people are REALLY searching for, and what is bringing them to your site. You can break it down per country as well, so you can see how popular your site is overseas.

They also have mobile search as well, so the kinds of reports they are adding can help you create more products that you know people are interested in. How do you know? Your weekly reports will be tellling you.

The tools and reports are all easy to use, so if you want to access them, set up a free gmail account, and go to the Webmaster Tools section. Once there, request a verification code and copy and paste the code on your homepage in the meta tag section. Follow the illustrations they will give you.

After you have pasted it, go back to the site to verify the account, and then your site profile results will start coming in. Use the data you get to see where you are in your business at the moment, and where you wish to go.

How to Track and Measure Customer Engagement with Your Site and Brand

Customer engagement is the one thing most online companies are looking for, but it can be a very vague concept for many business owners who think only in terms of raw numbers, traffic, rather than what people actually do when they get to your site.

How do you know if your customers are engaging with you and feeling loyal to you?

Unlike profits and ROI, there’s not one place you can look and say “aha, we now have connection.”

Instead, to figure out how much of a connection you’re making, you have to collect a variety of different metrics and statistics and make an inference.

These statistics can show you whether or not your message is hitting home with your customers.

==> Facebook Virality

In your Facebook Insights stats, there’s a number called “Virality.”

This is essentially what percentage of people who see your posts end up commenting, liking or sharing it, which makes your story appear on someone else’s news feed.

The higher your virality, the higher the percentage of people who connected with your message enough to pass it on to their friends.

Your Facebook virality is one of the most accurate gauges of how well your message is hitting, because it takes quite a high bar for someone to recommend something to a friend.

==> Twitter Retweets

The same can be said of Twitter retweets. Pay attention to what kinds of messages get retweeted and what kinds of messages don’t.

If you run a sales training organization and find that tweets about cold calling tend to get ignored while tweets about closing existing customers seem to take off, then you know where to focus your attention.

==> Analytics Numbers

There are a few numbers you should pay attention to in your analytics software: bounce rate, average length on site and pageviews per person.

Of all these statistics, the one that is most indicative of whether your message is connecting is “average length on site.”

All of these numbers will tell you essentially how much someone likes your content. If they don’t like it, they’ll bounce. If they like it, they’ll stay longer. If they like it, they’ll view more pages.

Take a look at the time on site of your various content pages and your various traffic sources and see if you can spot any patterns.

==> Surveys

Finally, one last way you can gauge whether or not people are connecting with your message is to simply ask them.

Using a service like Survey Monkey, you can easily construct a survey in under 30 minutes.

Make your survey short. Ask customers to fill it out, preferably in exchange for a bonus or a chance to win a prize.

Gather all the data from your survey and determine how well your message is hitting. Make changes, then re-do the survey a few months down the line.

Applying metrics and statistics to your efforts at building a connection is crucial. Simply guestimating whether or not you’re connecting isn’t a good way to run a business. By tracking metrics, you’ll be able to steadily improve those metrics over time.

Underground Traffic Blueprints review part 4

In this section we are going to be looking at Phase 4 of Underground Traffic Blueprints.

Module 4: Massive Traffic through PPV, CPV or pay-per-view and cost-per-view:
Jeremy and Simon have gone all “subterranean” in this underground five part series, unearthing the reasons I see many of my friends losing their shirts in the PPC and Contextual Advertising Networks.

You will find that even the people who are making profits in the networks are still leaving lots of money on the table. I believe it’s because no one has ever been able to put together such a complete blueprint on this subject, explaining all of the factors and how they relate to one another.

Other courses and video series on this subject have shoveled on the fluff, while Jeremy and Simon dig up why regular keyword research does not produce results and how once you know the real secrets, you can squeeze every ounce of value out of each penny you spend on advertising (for those of you struggling newbies who can ever even think about having a small PPC budget! let alone affording one.)

These two guys have really outdone themselves by sharing tools which I’m surprised they didn’t keep secret. It’s really the only plan I have ever seen on CPV worth considering taking the time to make scalable. So if you really want to get this course if only to brush up on what need to know about the real world of PPC and contextual advertising, then I repeat, this module alone is worth the price of the entire course.

OTHER GREAT STUFF:

There are other modules and two outstanding bonuses in this course that also make it more than worth what you are going to pay for it, less than $80 if you are one of the fact action takers who gets in at launch the way I did.

The fact is that one bonus alone is so outstanding, it will be a true game changer for the way you market on the internet. Because this new tactic works in and out, of both the cyber and brick and mortar worlds, even the “underground” insiders won’t be able to forecast its impact! This is truly integrated marketing which those of us in the know have used quietly for years to build our marketing empires, so as shocking as it will sound when you go through this bonus offering, trust me, it works.

So there you have it, the end of our review of Underground Traffic Blueprints. As I have said, the SEO and PPC modules alone are enough to make the course more than worth its while, but the fact that you get 9 more amazing modules and 2 outstanding bonuses make this a traffic building program you will want to grab now while the price is still so low.

If all this sounds like something you can really use to grow your business, then order Underground Traffic Blueprints now. Buy now

Underground Traffic Blueprints review part 3

In this next section I am going to review the modules on social media.

This phase of the training SHOCKED me because it did a better job of explaining to me why you and I spend so much time on social media, better than anyone else has ever been able to do.

There is a problem you, I, and every one of the 400 million plus users on Facebook share. When you see this real problem for what it is, you will understand why so many forms of marketing in the social media arena fall short of expectations.

This section covers a whole separate social media traffic blueprint that blurs the line between business and pleasure so profitably it may be the only thing you’ll ever want to do online!

Phase 3 of Underground Traffic Blueprints

This phase is a complete blueprint to follow for crushing the competition using Search Engine Optimization, or SEO. This underground formula is devoid of any “Black Hat” tactics that will get you in trouble later on, but it does contain some of the “Gray Hat” methods that Fortune 500 hundred companies will use to bury negative press about themselves.

Some marketers are using some of this to edge out their competition. The people who know all of these underground tactics are usually the ones charging monstrous retainers to clients who want guaranteed results for their websites. So if you want to know what many top consultants know, this is it.

If you use the power of this underground search engine optimization strategy, you can dominate the search engines even when people are looking up or searching for your competitors. It is all about the keywords and you will soon be able to apply these strategies to your own site, or multiple sites, for super results.

Everything you need to accomplish search engine domination is here. How to do the research, where to find the tools and how to use them, how to make the links, where to put them.You will also be leveraging your work over and over again. One, and done, as the phrase goes. In fact, they make it so simple, you will even learn how to set up a system of to outsource this work inexpensively so that you never have to get your hands dirty on it again once you set it up (great for job creation!! for anyone who has a computer and some spare time and motivation).

Best of all, you will learn how to automate it to scale your dominance across several niches and keep yourself on top!

Just as important as what to do-this specific underground blueprint explains what not to do, so the search engines do not turn around and slap you for crossing the line! So this module is really key for anyone who has a website, and frankly, worth the full price for what I paid alone, without all the other goodies added on!

If all this sounds like something you can really use to grow your business, then order Underground Traffic Blueprints now. Buy now

Look out for Part 4 of the review, coming soon!
