Can Bing Beat Google?

In the battle of search engines we ask - can Bing beat Google? The short answer is no. Look how Firefox is beating Internet Explorer. It is that Microsoft is no longer the focus company Bill Gates built, but tragically become the GM of Software. A big bloated company that produces over price junk.

OK are neg reviews good for biz?

People wonder if negative reviews are good for business. Well, my answer is an emphatic no. There is a clown that goes to amazon and gives bad reviews of my material. This guy never even read them. I can tell you the effect of a negative review is a decrease in sales.

Well, imagine a movie critic that does not even step foot into a cinema, but give a motion picture a nasty review without even seeing it. OR, better yet, a person that is critical of a future toy before it even comes.

Few in big biz understand the power in SEO, however this will not last long. In fac, our current economic crisis will force many to spend less on PPC and more on SEO. This will lead to greater competition in the future.

The important thing to remember is that adding a lot of links to your web pages with catchy titles will lower your bounce rate.

say no to nofollow

There is no reason to use nofollow. The link juice will evaporate. It use to be that people would slap a rel nofollow on outgoing links to prevent leaking of linkjuice, but those days are over.

Sadly, new algo will make trouble for you, by destroying link value of nofollow links. This is not good. Try to use rel nofollow only to prevent a page from being index and it still gets indexed. The attribute is worthless now.

Optimize for permalinks

When you create content, please optimize for permalinks, because that way you will get more traffic to your web site/blog. Sadly, many SEO gurus give wrong permalink instructions. Try to get you main keywords to be in the URL. This will help you rank high in the search engines. Please add more keywords to your body copy to match those in the URL for your links.

SEO Trap

If you make your niche too narrow then not enough people will link. Also, if your pages are NSFW - not safe for work, then people will not view your content as much. If your content is deemed very inappropriate for a professional work environment expect few links. OK so make sure that you try to appeal to a broad audience.

It is an SEO trap to appeal only to a small group. Also, avoid offending groups of people with your humor. The key to SEO success is lots of articles and long tail keywords.

Make Money Blogging: Paid links – Are they really worth buying ?
This is a very important article!

SEO traffic

Here are some tips to getting traffic using SEO.

Create one page per keyword and focus on that theme. Find outside links to help the main topic of your page. Make sure keyword is in title, subheads, and body copy.

Get ideas using nichebot and focus your efforts on very long tail keywords with low volumes of search activity. For example, less than one hundred clicks per month.

Do not waste time optimizing for tiny niche as those with less than ten clicks per month as there is not enough traffic to make it worth your while.
