Pinterest Changes Now! Banning Affiliate Marketers Links

Whoah,

I was reading along on Facebook and ran across this article
about Pinterest. Seems they are now banning affiliate links.

 

Here is a small excerpt from the article….

“Build your own blog / brand
Provide added value
Link back to your site from third-party venues
Build a list
Create a relationship with those on your list
Care about your readers
Market to those people as if they were your friends and family

The message is and always will be – work to build a business (emphasis on WORK).”

Since I had learned a hard lesson already, dealt out by Google through YouTube I was a little leery when it came to Pinterest

Even though Everyone said, Pinterest allows affiliate links, but I had this
doubt way down in my soul.

So for the most part, when I pinned anything
on Pinterest…that should have had an affiliate link in it…

I instead
linked back to a post on my site or

to a shared page site that I use and
let the affiliate link exist there…

either as a banner ad in the side bar

or a text ad in the content.

 

 So except for a couple of videos pinned from YouTube that had

links in the first line of the description…everything was intact…..

All my links were to Posts or pages on my site or something that I had liked and

shared from someone else and the link was to their content on their website.

The moral of the whole story, is to build your own business, don’t depend on someone else or something they are letting you use.

Keep in mind, that if you don’t own it, you don’t control it. I’m not saying don’t use Social Sites or other programs,

just handle with care…you are a “renter” paid or unpaid. So your stay can be limited by your landlord….

I mean have you ever taken the trouble to read YouTube’s terms of Service especially when you are signing up to use something new? 

I always notice that little threat so artfully inserted into that mountain of text:  This is being offered for free to use, but at a later date we might charge for this…Google, who just happens to be YouTube’s landlord.

Unfortunately the same thing can be said for paid programs that you use, especially if they are web hosted and not in your control. …..
Doesn’t happen very often, but sometimes things disappear and your house built on someone’s property comes tumbling down when the foundation is removed.

 

Have you ever had a nice surprise like that?  I’d be interested in the details. 

Seems almost like they had a Secret

Super Power Social Sites Webinar and forgot to invite us to attend.

 

That is the reason, I started this article with the ending of the one I read.  Still true.  Depend on what you build and what you own and control.     

Agree or Disagree….

SEO Keywords for the Future: Audio not Written Text

Is the future of SEO and Keyword Optimization Changing?

Is the future of SEO for keywords wrapped in Oral queries and not what you type in on your PC or mobile keyboard?
I started my morning with my usual habit: Log into C-panel and check the links in awstats on SkipperWorks, trying to figure out what keywords are being linked to!

If you aren’t in the know, I’ve had a huge problem with this nice collection of Chinese bots…haven’t figured out if they are really searching for information or just spamming my site…I mean 1,868,323 “Hits” so far this month and going strong.

They all link to one article….every one. I had almost as many 400 errors as hits from them. Took a chance and changed the title of the article…just added one word to the front end of the title and edited the perma link.

My Chinese bots dutifully followed the article, so now I am getting a soup can full of 302s instead of 400s.

But this interesting experiment isn’t what I want to talk about today!

Do You Spend To Much Time Learning SEO and not Doing?

I, unfortunately tend to stay to much in the “learning” phase of blogging, instead of the Doing it Now and make some needed cash! Just to put things into perspective, I definitely have a deficit when it comes to doing my SEO….find a good keyword and some extras and write an article including them all.

Think I was following a link from Lisa Magoulas and ended up on Moz.com and started reading an article by Will Critchlow about using voice queries to do searches on the phone….

His initial take was that voice navigation instead of typing in keywords wasn’t going to make it!
In his own defense he presented a lot of reasons why he came to this conclusion….The whole article is here: http://moz.com/blog/i-think-i-might-have-been-wrong-about-voice-search for your convenience in checking it out!

To make a long story shorter, Will thinks  that Google has developed and is refining  the process of doing “audio or voice” searches which combines minimum input with your personal information to return the results you want immediately.

Remember that laughed at social sharing thing called Google + that hardly anyone uses?   Hangouts?  Google Chat?

SEO and Your YouTube Videos…Sound Counts as Much as Text?

I know from listening to Ray Lane the Video Guy that he recommends repeating your YouTube video title and your major keyword (which should be in the title) when you begin talking on your videos…all for the SEO benefits…

He seems to think that these “Audio” keywords are just as important or even more important than those tags we enter and keywords sprinkled into the description.

Since Keyword optimization is part of my active quest for ranking my site (wrong goal, Google ranks Pages not sites!) I was happy to run across this article and some of the gold included.

It all goes back to why some of my videos rank quickly and others just sit there unless I Tweet or Facebook them to get some traffic! Definitely videos with a voice over, even not keyword optimized seem to do better than the ones with music.

Since you can now end up with a Google or is it Youtube transcription on your video…should you be doing your own transcript and attaching it to your videos?

If one is attached, you can edit it and include your marvelous keywords in the first line and sprinkle them down in the body and at the end….just as if you were writing an article to post on your blog…

Somewhere I read that the transcript doesn’t even need to make sense, just give the “robots” an indication of what the video is all about.

The reasoning was that most transcripts furnished by Youtube often don’t reflect exactly what is being said in the video…so the theory expounded was just add your keywords where you want them.

Which brings me to the real reason I was so interested in this article about Voice Querying instead of typing in keywords. I am looking for a program that will take the audio from a video and type it out for you….Instant transcript…instead of paying a service (can’t afford right now) to do the time consuming work for you.

I’ve looked at several add ons in Google Chrome but they aren’t rated that reliable just yet.

Anyone have the name or a link to a program they have used to produce transcripts that doesn’t break the bank?

I’d be interested…leave a comment and let me know!

Just below are two links for some really interesting info on SEO…I am an affiliate for both..so be warned!  But they explain it so much better than I can here…worth reading the sales page for the good…think both also give away a free ebook just for looking.

Viral Videos How This One Happened

Viral Videos, Accidents or Planned?

Was this one Planned?

I couldn’t take my eyes off this when I first ran across it on YouTube.

The Number of views in less than a week are astounding.   Now it turns out that it is a project created by College Students completing their Media Degrees…..to be deemed successful required 100,000  views.

Since their category included animals and children  the two most popular categories on YouTube…they probably did it in 20 minutes!

Here is a video with the  disclaimer stating that the video was the work of students.   The original video posted by another student explaining about how it was done  was removed, but here is a very short one from the school showing how they “constructed” the Eagle.

Review: How to Get over 850,000 Visitors Per Month to your Website

How to Get Visitors to your Website  is something you should know before you set up a site

Knowing how to get visitors and generate traffic to your website is always the first thing you should

think about when setting up a blog or website, because if you don’t have traffic, why bother!

Since I am in the same bucket as most of the people I talk to on Facebook,

Twitter (short conversations) and groups I belong to on Facebook and Blogs where

I “hang out” , we share the same problem that affects us all:  A source of

continuous returning traffic.   Not enough traffic…no money…not even adsense!

As part of my solution of this common problem: “How to Generate Website

Traffic” I decided to do some research.  Since I have a great program (You can

look at it by clicking here) for the basics that needs to be done to generate

website traffic I wanted something more.

I have a program that will search for YouTube videos using whatever keyword

or words that are input.  After I got the results, I filtered them by likes and number

of comments because I wanted results that people liked and talked about.

I hit the Jackpot with the first video I chose to look at:  How to Get over 850,000

Visitors Per Month to Your Website. 

The video made me think of my Friend Sergio  who runs one of my favorite

hangouts  Marketing with Sergio  and one of his very first videos.

Don’t know why these guys think they have to mount a camera in the car and talk

to you while driving down the road.  Guess it’s a “guy” thing, but I really think I

saw a similar video series by a well know “Guru” so I’m thinking it is copy-cat.

Who, What, When and Where!

Back to the Jackpot Video.  Kyle Graham creator of Ambidupdate.com met up

with David Risley head honcho at PCmech.com for an outdoor interview.  Not

recommended in Tampa, Florida  where the Gulf breeze blows like a mini

hurricane any time it wants to.

Standing outside of Chilis after lunch, Kyle asked David the Jack Pot Question:  “We

want to know how you get 850,000 visitors a month to PCmech?” 

Answer:  David didn’t hesitate, he said, “We probably post at least 3 times a day.

My partner and I post 3 to 4 times a day and the second thing we do is give away

good quality information.  Free….giveaway….quality   all extremely important

words.  People will come back if they can find a lot of things they need on one

site.”

Next question:  Why does your site rank so well with Google?

Answer:  “It is a WordPress Blog and blogs are search engine friendly to begin

with, plus when we do articles we try to include our keywords in the article title

and the subject line and in the blog post body.  So, when someone searches

Google, we get found.  If we get found, many return.  Also we do have opinions

and sometimes people disagree with us.  After all, it is a blog, so a little

controversy once in awhile doesn’t hurt.”

Dave also expounded, “Every article or post asks them to subscribe to Rss feed

or email newsletter.”

There was a brief after the interview p.s.  that included a reference to using

Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.   Kyle concluded that regular posting of helpful

quality information has to be the base for whatever you are doing to get traffic to

your site.

I have posted the video below to save you the trouble.  Be sure to take notes, there is

some good information that I haven’t included here.
