Firestorm SEO -Build Viral Traffic Now

Firestorm SEO Made Me Thousands Of Dollars-My Tax Statements Prove It

One of the best programs ever sold to help bloggers is Firestorm SEO. I know, because I have used it myself for a year and a half and it has made me a lot of money. I cannot reveal exactly the power portion of the program, but I will say that it does create viral traffic and optimize your blog if you follow the steps. The power portion as I call it brings extra traffic without you having to do anything other than normal blogging and pinging, and some natural backlink building. To get the ball rolling all you would have to do is article syndication, which is a normal process anyways, and watch your stats climb.

There are many different ways to get started on traffic for your blog, but having the steps completed with this program will accelerate your blogs progress much faster. Some of the steps for stopping two versions being indexed of your blog are now out of date and have been taken care of with the newer wordpress, but the other portions still work fine.

There are available other versions of the power portion as I call it, but it would cost a lot more to get access to this than the base program. I would just do the steps involved and move on to the next project you have or write more and do your blog promotion.

What Steps Do I Follow To Get The Site Going?

 

I would buy the program, and get wordpress installed first on your own self hosted domain.

  1. After you have your base install go through all the firestorm seo videos at least twice, and finish each step as needed.
  2. Get your content up and inside the blog. Use good SEO techniques on your articles for better indexing. You may do a combination of pages and posts to get some ground floor content.
  3. I would use pinging services after publishing, wait a couple hours so you don’t have problems with the ping engines.
  4. Do some backlink services or profile comments. This would give your site a few links. Do not go overboard on new domains, go slow and build over time.
  5. Build link magnets and use other types of article and backlink building techniques.

 

Content Creation On A Schedule

Create content on a regular schedule for the robots to have something to work with and rank your site better. This helps in many ways, you can hire it done or write like me. I don’t mind most days writing down the techniques I have used and want to pass along. If you can try and write at least twice a week, this will help give your site a regular updated “look” to the search engines and they will visit more often. I use many different plugins to help me get my seo correct when writing sometimes, but for the most part I try to just write for you and add my keywords a few times to help with ranking.

Having content written and published ona regular basis sends more robots and visitors to your door. I watch stats for when I am visited and even will go and use the quotes on my title of my post or page and see if it has made it into the index. You use this in a search bar and see if your content is indexed.

“Is My Stuff In Google?”

If this was the title of you post or page, then you could go and see if it was already in the index. This helps to know hwo it looks on the search page, and to make sure when you click the search result that there is no errors. This is important for sure.

Will Firestorm SEO Help Me?

 

My answer would be yes, but only if you follow the steps. If it sits on your hard drive and you do nothing, then you will see zero returns. You have to actually use the program for it to do anything. Firestorm SEO is a tried and true program. I owe a debt of gratitude to Sean Donahoe for making it and it is considered a true classic in Mr.Wizard strategy.

 

 

Google AdSense Ad Placement

How To Get More Money From Your Google AdSense Ads

 

Over the past few years I have experimented with Google AdSense ad placement. Google themselves actually gives you a heat map that shows how visitors interact with your website. This is helpful in many ways and helps describe user patterns. Judging from what the heat map shows, Ad blocks in the left sidebar, And the top do very well. I myself use The three allowed ad blocks and place them both left and right sidebar and top content.

 Matching Ad colors To Your Blog

I have varied the types of ads in these locations from text only to text and image ads. I find that for my blog the left sidebar ad block is usually all text. The top content ad block is also usually text only and I vary the colors of the top block and see which does the best. In my tests I have found that all-black ads in this location do well. The left sidebar is usually Google default and colors. I do however change the background color to match the blog template. I usually put the ad blocks in a widget and if the widget color is anything other than white you should match the ad background color exactly to the blog. The hexadecimal code can be matched using color picker. This is a free tool that I use to hover my mouse pointer over the background color and copy the hexadecimal code to the Google ad block. This matches the ad block exactly to the blog template.

 Blending Your Ads

Having your ads blend into the blog makes it more appealing to the visitor. You can experiment with different styles or colors of the text in the ad. I have tried using blue title, and all the rest of the text being black. This usually works pretty well and makes the ad look like a navigation link within your blog. Blending your background in your ad requires two changes,you must change the border and the background color to the same hexadecimal code. Another tip is to make the solid block that is showed if no ads are available to be the exact same hexadecimal code. We don’t want blank spaces where ads should be, but if it does happen to you then having it match the blog is better than a great big white block showing.

 

On the top right sidebar I haven’t experimented with image only ads and a combination of text and image ads. These have mixed results and it depends on your blog layout, template style, and color scheme. Some of these stick out like a sore thumb and they won’t get many clicks. It all depends on the content of your blog and what advertisers are available to fit your niche and your content.

 Using Plug-Ins To Display Your Google AdSense

There are lots of plug-ins that will serve your Google AdSense ad’s. I use WP insert and it seemed to do pretty well. At the current time the only ad block being served by this plug-in is the top content ad block. The other ad blocks are being served up via widgets. You can just add the code to a text block and save it in the widget location that you want to show the ad. You have less control this way on where the ads show. WP insert has more control and you can disallow ads to show on certain pages of your blog.

 

 

Does Google Hate Bloggers Or Just Affiliate Marketers?

Does The Release Of A Secret Google  Document Help Or Hurt?

I saw a copy of the so-called secret pdf guideline report for Google’s contractors to use when ranking or rating our websites. I was a bit surprised by some of it, and not surprised at all by the rest. The pdf went into details on what Google looks for when considering if a site is useful or spam.  I also saw where in the report it talks a bit about ads and how they look at sites with different ad blocks above the fold and whether or not they add or detract to the site overall.

Well Google employees, I have a few comments on this, you asked us to place these ads above the fold for years. I would get messages in my inbox and read them. It would say in so many words, “You are missing out on earnings, please consider adding a large rectangle ad block above the fold”.

Google released a heatmap of where visitors click to help us as well. I have used this information to help with ad placement over the years. I am not alone there, a lot of folks take the Adsense team literally and do what they ask. Why would this ever hurt us anyway? Google said to do it, they should know that better than anybody and we can earn more from our blog.

Does The Right Hand Know What The Left Hand Is Doing?

Does the adsense team collaborate with other teams? I would like to know, if they rate us lower for ads above the fold when the adsense team asked us to do exactly that, then I call nuts on that. I have done well with this program, don’t get me wrong, I just hope they can clarify a bit better those who make Google a lot of money and pay their bills. Don’t you wish they had some kind of guarantee with their various services? I know they cannot do this, but with certain publishers who make them a ton of money, maybe some kind of agreement that they won’t drop you like a bad date?

There is no real way a search provider can offer this kind of agreement with it’s associates, maybe the preferred publishers get some kind of agreement, but not regular folks who happen to do a bit better than the general website owners.

We as bloggers and in many cases affiliate marketers wonder where this all leaves them. Does Google really hate us? Not really, they just are looking at how many ads are on the page and whether or not your review article is on target or not. They don’t want copied articles, we know that already. They don’t seem to mind as much the ads being there and I would hope not. A few people are saying that they may score the affiliate site a bit differently, and that’s just opinion I suppose. Some folks have said that affiliate marketers are just another unwanted step in the sales process.

But from what I could glean from the pdf is that in the case of the website that gets a manual review, the pdf is the baseline quality score for the manual review person to follow. We all know that the Panda updates were designed to rank sites that copy or scrape all their content a lot lower. I know for fact that some of these sites get through the filters from the algorithm, I have seen some of the very poor quality sites rank for terms that I use a few times a month while looking for a piece of software or other type of program or information.

Does the website provide the searcher what they are looking for and is it dead on target? If not, then the site could at some point come under a manual review if they rank highly for a certain term and be scored by a real person. If the site is owned by a large corporation or brand name, they seem to get some slack of sorts for what is termed as vital when dealing with their brand. There is a few large companies that don’t get any slack, and that is Yahoo and others.

My Take On Site Scoring With Ads Above The Fold

Google asked us to place those ads there a long time ago. I earned good money from this method that they themselves had us do. They also profited greatly from this very same method. After all, if they do not have us to place content for their ads, they don’t make a dime. Money that gets spent on their free lunch program they give to employees, the sleeping pods they use, the salary of each employee, and the list goes on. I know they don’t really care if they ban somebody for doing things they do themselves or have done. I also take issue with site scoring with ads above the fold taken into consideration as to site quality. I have a real hard time with the hypocrisy of the whole mess, or at least the appearance of it.

I will not change the way I write, or place my ads on my site. I also will stand my ground when it comes to writing what I feel on subjects of greater interest even though they may be a bit controversial. How do you feel when you are told how to think or how to act in your daily life? Probably not very well.

Should Google Let This PDF Out To The Webmasters?

I wonder about this question and I am not the only one who has brought up the subject. A lot of webmasters mention that if Google really wants site owners to do better and get rid of web spam, they should make what they want truly public. I have not and will not place a link for this secret pdf, there are a lot of places where you can get it. Google has been actively asking webmasters to remove the pdf and have been policing for sites that do have it.

I wonder how the web would be, and the quality of sites would be if this information was public and maybe released like a regular publication to adsense publishers and other webmasters who deal with Google in particular? It would be a good start, and then maybe open up the syndication of the document to others over time.

If they did this, they may change the style of the publication that shows actual site links and the comments for each. Yahoo was a bit miffed at the results, and if you ever get to read it, you will see why. Some of the sites are chosen in what seems a targeted fashion if the site in question ranks well for a particular search term. Not to say that all upper ranking sites will get a manual review, but it makes you more visible. This is just common sense.

I do hope things will get a bit more transparent with what Google expects of us and what we get from their spokespersons. I don’t really like to follow what these individuals have to say, it seems they are supposed to misdirect us on purpose in some cases. The algorithm will always be a secret and we understand that, but with the release of this pdf document and what we as webmasters can learn about it is the most important bit of actionable information that has been released in years.
