Video transcript for quick reference or reading along:

Welcome back to another edition of BAM internet marketing training. Today we are going to be talking about building private networks for SEO dominance, and how to build them for free.

Link building for search engine optimization purposes has become increasing difficult in recent years with all the Google updates and penalties they are handing out in their newly waged war on links. Quite frankly they’ve made it a pain in the ass.

But it can still be done and still needs to be done if you ever want to have any real SEO success. And doing it this way still works very well and is much safer than just about every other link building strategy out there.

First, let’s talk a little about why these private networks work and the reasons for building them for SEO purposes…

* How it works:

When one site links to another site it transfers “link juice” to that site. That in turn increases its rank in Google. However, not only does the link juice go to the initial site, it also goes to all the sites the initial site is linking to.

For example; 1000 links go to a website. That website then links to your site. The power of those 1000 links is then transferred from the middle site to your site. The power is slightly diminished but so are the risks of direct linking.

To summarize, if a site links to your site, you not only gain juice from that link, but you also gain juice from the links pointing to that site.

* The Reason for Buffer Network Sites:

You might be wondering… Why not just send all of the links to your main site?

Well, the main reason is simply because Google hates that – A LOT. In fact, sending a ton of links to your site quickly is just asking for a penalty that would completely wipe out all your SEO efforts and kill your site overnight! It can work very well for a short time, but eventually it would catch up with you and get you penalized.

This is why instead of linking directly to your site, you build mass amount of links pointing to buffer sites that then link to your site. This way you gain all the juice without risking a red flag in Google as explained above.

* How the Networks Are Built

Building each network is pretty simple and straightforward. Here’s how to do it…

1) Create accounts on various blogging platforms and web 2.0 sites to be used for the properties… blogger, wordpress, tumblr, Squidoo, livejournal, blinkweb, weebly, ezinearticles, wiki sites, etc… there’s a ton of them out there.

I recommend not using the same ones over and over again. You have so many options that it’s good to randomly use different ones for each network site so you don’t leave a footprint and you lower your risk in case any of them ever shut down or anything else.

2) Write content articles and make the sites relevant to yours. Anywhere between 300-500 words is fine. At least one article per site. The more the better for stickiness. Write them yourself if you are going for the totally free route. Or I recommend iwriter for purchasing good articles for this at great prices if you don’t mind spending a little money.

3) Build the sites you created in step 1 using the articles you have written in step 2. You will be building 5 sites on tier one that will link directly to your money site, and 10 sites on tier two that will link to each other and to tier one. All links are one-way and everything flows towards your site at the top.

4) Create a short video and upload to youtube with a link to your site. This doesn’t have to be anything spectacular. It can be a slideshow of pictures related to the niche or just you sitting in front of your webcam saying a couple paragraphs about the money site. 30 seconds is fine. That will link directly to your website in the description.

5) Send mass links to the 2nd tier so the juice will be transferred through to your site and also to the youtube video. This can be done through…

  • Article Submissions
  • Directory Submissions
  • Social Bookmarking
  • Blog Comments
  • Forum Profiles
  • Press Releases
  • Videos
  • Photo Sharing
  • Wikis
  • Microblogs
  • Trackbacks
  • Document Sharing
  • Web 2.0 Properties

…and many more!

It can be done manually and therefore completely free but it will take you a lot of time and effort. I recommend using something like GSA or SEnuke to save a ton of time by doing it automatically.

Obviously there is quite a bit of work that goes into each step above. This is just the simplified overview of how it is basically done. I’m not going in-depth on each step due to the fact that it would take quite a while to explain it all and this video would end up being really long. However, if you want more information just get in contact with me and I will be happy to discuss it with you.

This works really well for local SEO clients especially and lower competition keywords. I’ve seen it work for medium to a bit harder keywords as well. And the best part is that over time the network sites themselves also start to rank. So not only do you get high rankings for your own site but you also bump some of your competitors down as you take over more spots on the first page with your mini-network sites.

I’ve been using this strategy for a couple years now and it has worked very well, and still is today. So give it a shot right now. You can thank me later for your newfound SEO success and all the money you are making!

Making Money Blogging Basics for Beginners

There are literally thousands of people who are making money blogging right at this very moment, and hundreds of new blogs are becoming profitable every day. Yes, YOU can make money blogging, and it’s really not quite as difficult as you might think. Yeah, I will admit, it’s not the easiest thing in the world, but anyone can do it if they are willing to put in the time and effort necessary.

The first thing to remember if you are started a new blog is to stay away from the “Make Money Online” (MMO) niche. It is very hard to make money blogging in the MMO niche. There are many reasons for that but I won’t go into them right now other than to say the competition is fierce, profits are low, and it’s simply not worth the effort! Just take my word for it, you are FAR better off building a blog in a different niche.

There are thousands of easier niches you can tap in to and make money blogging about them. All you have to do is use a free keyword tool and do a little research. Start with things you are interested in or know a lot about, and go from there. You should be able to find a good niche pretty quickly. The more it gets searched for, the better. However, volume of searches is not the only thing you need to take into consideration. You are looking for niches that have a fairly large market with money they are willing to spend, and not a lot of competition.

You can find the first one with the Google keyword planner. It will tell you the approximate monthly search volume for any keyword phrase and how strong the advertiser competition is, and a bunch of other useful information. If there is a lot of advertiser competition then it’s usually a good indicator that the niche has profit potential.

Then, you need to see how much competition there is for that keyword phrase. An easy way to do that is to go to Google and search for it in quotes. The results will come up with sites that are using that exact phrase on their sites. You can see that number at the top of the search results page. You do want some competition, but not a ton.

Once you find a good niche then all you have to do is set up your blog and start blogging (writing). WordPress and Blogger are popular blogging platforms that are free and very easy to use. After you get some blog posts written and published you should start getting inbound links (backlinks). This can be done through article marketing, link exchanges, dofollow blog commenting, buying links on related sites, guest blogging, networking, site directories, social bookmarking, forums and many other ways. Be sure to learn about SEO before you jump into this!

Updating your blog often with quality content and getting relevant inbound links will increase your search engine rankings and start bringing in a lot of traffic to your blog. Once you have the traffic, you can put up some affiliate links, do reviews, sell advertising spots, publish Adsense, or any of the other methods there are for making money from a blog.

That’s pretty much all there is to making money blogging. Of course, this post is a very summed up and simplified guide for how you can make money blogging for free. But it is the general basics of how you do it. Use my tips as a guide and do some research for a more in-depth explanation of anything you don’t understand. You could have your niche picked and blog set up in a matter of hours, and be making money from it very soon.

Is Running an Internet Home Business Right for You?

At this point in time, it’s really no secret to anyone that owning your own internet business can be highly rewarding. But what most people don’t consider is that it can also be a major pain in the butt. If you aren’t sure whether or not starting your own online home business is right for you, then you have to consider the major pros and cons, and really think about whether or not you can do it.

Running your own business can certainly mean a lot of wonderful things for you. There’s no doubt that being your own boss can provide a lot of freedom, and virtually no limit to the amount of money you can earn if your business really takes off. Also, once you have your income streams going strong, you can take time off whenever you want to enjoy the fruits of your labor, which makes taking family vacations much easier.

However, it’s certainly not all fun and games. Far from it actually. There are some major cons to running an internet business that you should consider before starting up. If you aren’t a self starter then running your own business definitely is not for you. Being your own boss means setting your own schedule and meeting your own goals. Nobody is looking over your shoulder to make sure things get done.

Without a doubt, one of the most difficult parts of having your own internet home business is the money situation. It’s often impossible to know exactly how much money you will be making from month to month. And for your first year or two, it’s highly likely that your profits will be very low. You might even lose money for several months at a time before ever seeing any kind of profits.

You definitely need to plan ahead for some potentially tough financial times before diving into a home business. It would be wise to want to save up at least 6 months income before even starting your own internet business. Unless you plan to keep a day job in the beginning, which is probably a good idea.

Yes, it is obviously hard to ignore the benefits of starting your own online business. Being your own boss, making your own decisions, setting your own schedule, and being in control of your own income are all appealing to almost anyone. But you need to be honest with yourself and decide whether or not you can handle the stress of running a business, or if you even have the motivation to keep going through all the tough times that surely lay ahead.

While the pros of running a home based web business may be appealing, if you are not cut out for it, you will definitely regret the decision somewhere down the line. Take the time to truly examine your personality, financial situation, dedication, and so on. Then, sit down and figure out if running a business is really for you. Trust me; you will thank yourself for it later.
