Video Vantage Gives You The YouTube Advantage

Software is a time saver, we get that. If you spend all your spare time building and ranking videos on YouTube then you realize what kind of time we are talking about here.

Currently there are ways to rank videos and do it the old way, like spamming the crap out of links and doing things you cannot do to your blog or website. Nope, if you spam you get hammered by some Google animal or something. Seems they punish people for that. Well, we know this also and still need traffic so what do you do? Ghost busters does not enter into anything so you do the next best thing and that is video.

Trying your best to do all this by hand and still have a life can be a wish that may never come true. Using a software tool to assist with some of the mundane chores has always been a solution for you, trouble is which software does the job you want it to without a lot of hassles?

The way I have found is just by testing to see what works best. It can be a bit expensive, especially when there are so many solutions out there to look at. Let’s look at some of the ways to save time.

Problem one: Upload a video easily

Solution: One click uploading

Problem Two: Build Backlinks to your video

Solution: The software builds high pr links and wiki links for you

I could go on and on but you get the idea here. Time saved is money in your pocket. I also see where this software works for both Mac and Windows so you do not have to worry a bit about running extra applications to get something to work with Mac. This is all done for you.

Have a look at Video Vantage and see what I am talking about. There is a lot more there on the page than what I can describe here. I have an idea that you will be happy with it.

 

 

 

 

Digi Traffic Generator

Andy Fletcher is back with a vengeance with his software called Digi Traffic Generator. Andy took a break from software creation and it has been a long time since I had anything to write about that was any good. I have most all of the digi line of products and I am very happy with them. I have used this stuff for a long time and it always seems to do well.

A lot of blog owners are hoping to see some help with the panda and penguin updates, so you are not alone. Building manual backlinks has always been a pain in the rear, especially now after all the Google fun and games. The panda updates have a been a real seo killer in some aspects, at least the way seo was done in the past.

Andy is going to be charging $39.95 a month for this new release, I don’t blame him at all, but. I have a place where you can get the whole thing for half that. No need to thank me now, just use this new software wisely and go kick Google butt and get back your free time and peace of mind. Nobody should have to put up with the ridiculous amount of jumping through hoops like they want you to do. It is not in your best interest to think they can control you and your blog rankings, a lot of people have given up, but you don’t.

I see no reason at all why people put up with this total takeover of the organic search results except for one thing,  total control by Google to line their own pockets and shoving you out of the way. Is there a way to fight back? Of course there is, you just have to know how to do it. The panda updates were built for a reason and tweaked over time. Some blogs rose and a lot fell. I had some of each myself, some did well and some went in the toilet. I will be using this software to bring my old blogs back over time. There was nothing really wrong with them in my own mind, I just did not have the time to build the backlinks for all of them. This old method of building authority from scratch takes a lot of work. I have a few blogs that had link diversity and anchor text variance, it paid off. I did a lot of this by trial and error, and a lot from not knowing, I used all kinds of anchor text phrases and it rewarded me down the road.

I do hope you will go take a look and see if this is something that will work for you, a lot of what Andy builds has helped me over the past year and a half and I think it will help you too.

Loop Pigeon – Will It Help You Get Viral Traffic?

Loop Pigeon – Is This Another Chris Munch Hit?

I did go and take the plunge today, and yet again I bought another product. This is my second Chris Munch purchase and I want to get started right away, but for this particular launch, we will have to wait until the webinar is presented or we get a recording. I did buy the first OTO, I see the potential and I am very bad at Facebook. So, in reality this was a JV with Jameson Brandon, someone who is supposed to be a Facebook expert. Myself, I have never heard of him, but I am a bit sequestered in my work.

I guess the best way for me to explain what we are seeing right now is a screenshot of what the traffic loop is supposed to look like on paper, or at least roughly. We will know more after the webinar is live and we get access to the recordings.

 

Combine Facebook, Pinterest And What Do You Get? One Hell Of A Traffic Flood!

I have no idea how these guys sit around and brainstorm these ideas up, but they probably had a good time as little kids with crayons and coloring books too, and they didn’t stay inside the lines I will bet. Thinking outside the lines is exactly what this kind of  traffic method appears to me. Traditional SEO is having a hard time right now, with Google banning blog networks that IM’rs used to build up rankings, they have to replace it with something. This looks like it may be that something that replaces all the exposed methods and brings traffic to your door.

Loop Pigeon May Be The Helping Hand You Need

I cannot say if it will for sure or not as we have not seen the finished product yet. I and all the others who bought it will have to wait. The web based software that is the OTO looks really good and they have a built in knowledge base right inside the site where you can look and see if your question has an answer. I did pass on the last OTO, only time will tell if I needed it or not to help me get a mental picture of what I need to do for setting up my fan pages and sales funnel.

If you do buy the web based software for Facebook, remember to access the paypal email you bought it with for the welcome link. Then you can go play around with it and start looking at the features and the information you will need to build the sales funnel and email list. You will need your Facebook app id and the secret key, you will also need to know what page url’s to send people to and all that. I would make notes and wait for the webinar to be ready so you can get started and not make any mistakes.

As we see the social signals as part of web rank, we also have a great need to add to any search traffic we receive. This may be another way to do just that, only time will tell and setting up good campaigns. I am ready and I hope you are too. I do see in my own tests that real visitors and those that leave comments are a good portion of the ranking signals, a lot more now than ever before. If you want to build a good list, have real comments that add value, improve Alexa ranking, or any of these reasons and more, then you should take steps to provide the search engines more of what they want.

I see on their site this message:

OPEN FOR 6 DAYS ONLY: Closes March 26th 2012

Go and have a look for yourself and see if this is something that can help you. I would say that I will be taking notes and watching directions closely. I am terrible at Facebook and fan pages, so if you have good working knowledge with this then you are ahead of me for sure. This is probably not for the complete newbie, but if you want a challenge, then by all means jump on in.

WP Magic Black Box Plugin – Will It Help Your Blog?

WP Magic Black Box Plugin – Will It Help Or Hurt You?

Anytime I see a plugin name with the word black in it, it really makes me wonder if this is a good idea or not. I had to look for myself on a recommendation from a friend. I did some basic reading on the warrior forum WSO listing, but the plugin had just launched and there was not much info there for us to see. The name of the person who was releasing it was fairly well known and trustworthy, Peter Garety. The only problem I ever have with stuff like this is what is the track record of the plugin, or are we going to get our asses in a sling with Google when we use it. With a new product launch that is the problem, you have no freaking clue whether it will help or hurt, you only have the word of the person who is selling it.

I decided to take the plunge and buy the developer version of the plugin, this price point was the same as the others and no reason to not buy the top level. The purchase went off without a hitch, I will include a screenshot of the members area for you to see how nice and simple it really is.

WP Magic Black Box Plugin

Peter is already talking about a version 2 of  this plugin. There has been some good feedback and product changes or suggestions to be made in the next release.  I wanted to give a tip here that will help when you are shopping the warrior forum, I always look at the sales page in a skimming fashion, I then go to the back page if the WSO has been on sale for a couple of days. The reasons for this is I want to know if there are any major problems with the product and if people are bitching about it on a regular basis.

WP Magic Black Box Plugin Members Area

 

As you can see from the screenshot, the members area is nice and simple. Easy to navigate and find what you need quickly.

This plugin is designed to work with several options. You will need best spinner, and no, they do not have spinner chief functionality as of this writing for you folks with that service. Shorten url, ping.fm, hellotxt, onlywire, and proxy support is included.

At this time they are working on precluding all askimet captured comments so they are not posted as part of your blog. The whole point of askimet was to keep the trash off your blog, not post it. They will be including this shortly.

You will need some knowledge of cron commands or at least the ability to add one in your cpanel so you can get the plugin up and rolling. You will have the ability to add a keyword to each of the posts that you have on the blog for the auto commenting functions. There is a whole page tab devoted to just this. And, depending on how many posts you have, it may take a while to set this up. All in all, this plugin has fairly easy instructions and setup for those with basic knowledge. If you have any problems, you can always send Peter a help desk ticket and he will get you sorted out. He has been really responsive in his WSO and helping people with all their questions.

WP Magic Black Box Plugin

Since I bought the developer version, I can place it on any number of blogs in my network. With the price being close to the same as the regular version, it was silly of me think about choosing anything lower in license. If you go and read, you will find out what I am saying is right along the same lines as others are writing about. A lot of folks are buying the same version and working this into their networks.

 

The Time Is Now To Fight For Your Rights On SOPA And PIPA!

Folks, the time is now to stand up for your right of free speech. How would you like to wake up one day and see your favorite website blacked out from the overreach of the government hand? I do not want my wonderful nation to tell me that I can no longer use any website of my choosing. This is exactly what will happen if someone makes even a false complaint against a website that they are hosting illegal content or even linking to it. I want each and every one of you to go sign this Google petition and make your own voice heard. It is all important that you take a few minutes of your time to do this.

Sign The Google Anti Sopa Petition

Just keep in mind that you will have a lot of spare time in the future if the government has it’s way with our rights. You will not be able to access some sites that they shut down. I am making a wide net here of course, the point is the government could shut sites down. We do not need Congress telling us what to do. We get get enough of that already in our daily lives.

There seems to be some backlash and withdrawal of support by some in Congress. I say the vote looks close as it stands now, but we need to get this bill killed now before it sees the light of day. Many millions of people have signed the petition and have been calling emailing their elected officials. So much so that it has inundated the call centers from what I am seeing. That is good, but we must up the pressure a notch and really turn it on. Bring it home people! You know we can wage such a mess with exercising our rights of free speech that they cannot help but hear us.

Congressman Ron Paul has vowed to filibuster the bill into oblivion. You can read more here .

I do hope you will take the time to voice your opposition to this freedom killing bill. I have seen a lot of great informational posts on the subject and the internet is on fire with this one. I will give you another link here shortly that has some very good info, this is from a friend of mine who really let them have it and he even got called by the US Senator over it! I would say he has their full and complete attention now! This is what we want, and it’s to bad that we have to get so mad just to get them to actually listen to us, but we are the ones who run the show. They work for us, not the other way around, and as long as the elected officials keep this in mind, they may be able to stay another term.

Please take time to sign the petition from the link above and then go read read this next great article. I will warn you, do not be drinking anything when you land on his page, you may end up spewing your drink all over your monitor or desk…LOL.

Got Your SOPA And PIPA Hanging Between The Legs!

Keep the faith people, we can kill this bill!
