Is Google Evil Banning Adsense Publishers?

If you have ever used the adsense publisher platform for making some extra cash like me, then you most likely have heard of horror stories about people getting banned right at the moment when they were due to be paid. I have seen this myself and know personally two people that lost their accounts right when the earnings were ramping up.

Here is one story that seems to shed some light on the dark side of Google:

I have seen clicks evaporate, stats for my adsense back office not jive with my multiple reporting methods. It was suspicious at best and I always wondered if I was being skimmed. I still earn daily with adsense but it has been a rocky ride. Makes a person wonder about all those stories and complaints in the Google forums. A lot of people game the system, but there are folks who do make some good cash with it like I have. If you take time to read the story it may alleviate your worst fears, or at least confirm that you were not crazy or just a conspiracy theorist.

I also have a post from another person that is fairly long but well worth reading.

Josh Bachynski wrote this very long article about a meeting he had with Matt Cutts…

http://themoralconcept.net/

It has been confirmed by Matt himself that this meeting did take place. I relate Matt with the white house press secretary, both being able to stand up in front of the world and tell fibs as a front man for a very large corporate interest or government. To me,they seem to have only self interest in mind when they spew the cover stories to protect their own.

Google has purposefully set out to hurt individuals while reaping the harvest for their own bottom line. Collateral damage is just part of the scenery it seems, you got hurt while they destroy the spammers. Do they really care your life’s work in a blog got dropped down the index 40 pages? I think not, they really only care about targeting the competition. More money for them and to hell with you. And they wonder why Black Hat SEO still works and people are tired of trying the white hat crap.

Go Social They Said

If you remember Google Friend Select and had built this up over time then you know what I am talking about. They had this going and people used it, then they dropped the program without a replacement. I still wonder why we even bother sometimes trying to do what they ask. It is only one SEO signal but I had real people not fake following my blog, not any more from that program at least.

You can see why so many people over the past couple years have inundated the forum with complaints while the Google fanboys and rats laugh and ridicule. They have rats in all parts of life, but it seems in the second linked story you can see a reference of people ratting to Matt about a certain website and crying like little babies to get a cookie from Matt and be seen in good favor.

That is my soapbox for today, you can see that these stories just solidified my suspicions about a once well liked funny named search engine called Google. Most folks have a very negative view on this search engine now, and they deserve all the vitriol as they created it.

 

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.

 

 

 

 

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.

loop pigeon pinterest and facebook traffic

 

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.

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.
