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.





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.



WordPress Update Services – Use A larger Ping List

What if I told you that you could increase the ping exposure to your own blog by up to 50x or fifty times what is the normal default level with a larger ping list?

I bet you that you would probably think I was totally nuts, and you would be right, but it is true that you can do that. The default blog install comes with only 3 ping update services of recent times and it used to only have one in older installs if I remember correctly, so, in other words the ping list is majorly lacking. This is not acceptable at all. We can tweak our blogs to notify the various ping services on a much larger scale and enjoy the benefits of having many more backlinks built for us on autopilot.

I have a much larger ping list on my blog and it has helped me to gain great exposure to my potential audience by placing more information on the various services and making it easier for them to find me. Imagine if every visitor were to be notifying over 100 ping services on each visit how many pings this would be sending out? More on that in just a minute here. The update services currently work where when a post is made or page, the ping services are notified. This gains more exposure and sends the various search engine spiders running to see what’s new on your blog. How can you amplify and take advantage of this? I can tell you in just a few words… Firestorm SEO.

More than just a blog and ping improvement program, Firestorm SEO has helped me improve my blog score and how it is seen by search engines. It has helped me build a following on one of my older blogs to a point where I had to buy a dedicated server. You will learn things like, how to fix your htaccess file and how to stop or block rogue search engines from stealing your bandwidth. How to show only one version of your blog to the search engines and stop duplicate content penalty scores or slaps. And one secret way to make your blog go viral in a very short time via a nice addition to your blog template. I cannot say what it is here, you will have to buy it to find out what this is. But, I can tell you that my tax statements will show a major upgrade in total income for the year. This all takes time and will not happen overnight, but you can rest assured that it will help.

So..What About The Ping List?

I have a master ping list I will give you here in a few minutes. This will help you when you post a page or post and notify the ping services and help with exposure like I was saying earlier. It is only a small part of the Firestorm SEO program and will help a lot towards getting better visitor counts in your stats programs.

WordPress gives us a nice explanation about ping lists and update services here on their own website..

WordPress Update Services

But, you can take it a lot further than what they give you in your default blog install by using my ping list and placing it in the following area in wp-admin…

Settings–>then to writing–>scroll down until you see the open box with just a few ping services listed. Paste the list inside the box and of course don’t forget to save the changes.


Get Your Ping List Here

This list will open in a new page. You can copy and paste this list in a new wordpad and save it somewhere safe. You will need it after you buy Firestorm SEO and start with the training. The Firestorm program comes with a ping list, but I have updated mine and wanted to include it for you to use freely.

Remember to watch the videos many times and review again and again. I did and picked up stuff I missed the first time around. It is important to do all the steps as you are able. I would start with getting the secret update services tweak installed and and then move on to working with your htaccess file and getting that updated and ready to go.

I want to hear from you and how things are going. You can write here and I will respond to your questions. I also work with Sean Donahoe inside the IMSC support section and answer tickets there as I am able. It is your choice, but to get me directly you can ask your question here on my blog and I will try to help.

IMSC – What Sean Donahoe Can Do For You

Last year I was struggling to make ends meet, I had been working on my blog network and trying to get just one or two of them to rank and bring in some extra cash. I had worked on them in static html form and was not satisfied at all. The website building software I was using was just not cutting the mustard, it sucked badly and there had to be some changes made and quick. I had found out about wordpress from a person I met online and  bought their e-book. Included was a wordpress install as long as you purchased hosting from them. The person was Holly Mann and her honest riches e-book has done very well and I thank her for giving me the kick needed to make it like I have in blogging. I just wanted to give that credit where it is due.

Enter WordPress Stage Right

Fast forward to January of 2010. I had converted all of my main sites to wordpress by taking all of my content and copy/pasting it into notepad from the old static html sites. I know, it’s a funny way to do it, but I did not know any other way. So, with this chore completed I started my study on wordpress blogging methods and how and what plugins to use. I experimented with many, and nothing really happened as fast as I wanted it to. I tried article marketing, press releases, and a lot of other methods, but I was just not gaining any real traction quickly. I was totally lost. The methods I was using was not going as quickly as I thought they should.

I kept the page hierarchy and reset them all in order the way they were in the static sites. I have seen a major increase in visitors from that time. My stats were terrible back then, but as time went on and I had added different plugins and other changes to my template core, something cool happened.

I had added some changes that were suggested by Sean in his training course Firestorm SEO. Going through each video several times and reading the instructions for adding the changes took me time. A lot more than most people. The changes seemed to take ok and no errors were noted. The final thing to add was editing the footer.php file to add something really cool. The viral part of Firestorm.

So, what happened? I had been getting a small amount of traffic stats and had not really been watching that closely. I woke up one day to see both my adsense account and my traffic from my stats page go up. I was not really sure why, I was seeing something new to me. Actual traffic! The where’s and why’s started flowing. What had I done that was so different from all the other stuff?

Instead of throwing one spaghetti noodle at the wall to see if it stuck, I had thrown the whole bowl. I had to find out what had worked and why so I could repeat the process or as the old saying goes in internet marketing, “Wash-Rinse-Repeat”. I went over my other blogs in my small network and made the same changes. It took many weeks for some of these things to really take hold, but the traffic was climbing. I had been watching my stats since January when I first started my promotion techniques, but the firestorm changes were not done until June of the same year. I had only “just found” Sean Donahoe and so far, all of his stuff was working for me. I was ecstatic to say the least. I like so many others had waded through the pile of horse dung on the internet and finally found a diamond hidden in the pile.

 Will Your Hosting Plan Stand Up To The Pressure?

After a few months of watching my stats and my income grow. I was noticing some site loading problems. I was not sure what it was and tried to get support at my hosting company to explain it to me so I understood what was going on. They were not able to really figure out why my site loaded slow except for inodes usage. That is a term you will hear on shared hosting accounts if you go over the limits they set. Don’t believe them when they say your hosting is unlimited, that is not true at all. You will have server resource limits set so all of the sites on that box will function and serve the visitors.

Needless to say, but after a few months of upgrading at my current host. I had to find a new home. I had outgrown the levels of server packages at Bluehost, and was forced to find a higher level of server boxes. They did a pretty good job considering in the support section there, but I was at the top with no room to grow. If you use Firestorm SEO or any of Sean’s other products for viral traffic, you will need a growth plan.

I ended up shooting for business plan at hostgator. I was not in that level long either, I had to go to a VPS server. I would say during this growth period I was doubling or very close to it, my traffic every month.

My next server level was vps level 3. I was looking at yet another server move and if my blogs files were corrupted, I would be in major trouble. (My blogs were so huge, file moves had become a manual process only). I gave it some thought on that day and asked for advice from a server tech, they said go to level 5 right away or you may be in hot water.

This server level lasted about 60 days or so, I was going along pretty well and then one day my cpanel would not load. I asked for confirmation from support and guessed it. I had killed a level 5 vps. I had to get this under control and right now. I ordered via email my upgrade to level 7.

I was really killing it for traffic, but it all could go away quickly if I was not vigilant with my server and watching it multiple times daily. My impressions had hit 2,125,000 for the past month, it was going the way I wanted it to.

Level 9 VPS

I had been doing well on the older level 7 vps for awhile and not really seeing any issues. I had been watching and my friend Sean was also watching it from his monitoring software on occasion to make sure all was well. I had Sean do this because of his server knowledge and the fact that he was able to watch getclicky stats and other server stats in real time as the traffic climbed. And besides, Sean is a good man who I trust completely with my inner workings and access. He also volunteered to do it so he could sit in amazement at the traffic stats popping up a new visitor every 3-4 seconds. It was his work that was doing the server melting, by all means it was cool to have him watch in real time. We had some great phone and skype conversations on this subject.

The level 9 vps lasted for awhile, this was in January of this year, 2011. I was watching it sky rocket in traffic but yet again, there was one day I went to load my cpanel and it just sat there.I wondered to myself, this can’t be, I have one of the best servers out there that is optimized and is using the nginx plugin to offload some of my server load. But yes, it had happened again. I was out of server resources yet again and I had to scramble to figure out what went wrong.

Enter to the stage Hostgator Pro Level Server

I did not know that in just a few short months I would be back in the same place, having to have my blog network packed up and moved to yet another server box. But, it did happen and that’s where I am today. The top of the top servers available to me on this hosting company.

I had reached the pinnacle of server levels and it did not take that long. This was just before the infamous Panda Updates. But, folks still wonder, how did you get there and what blueprint can you show us to get to those server melting heights?

Three top tips I can give for tools you can use to to get exposure and build the level of backlinks like I have now for my main blogs. I am talking in the ballpark of over 37,000 links to my sites each. This is just a general figure, but they have this many and way more. I must also point out how many of these links are from good properties, if you use BLB or Backlink Booster properly, you can expect to build this list steadily over time.

Backlink Booster

Link Magnets

I can say without any doubt that according to my stats on my server and my earnings, they coincide directly with the purchase of these products. I have tax receipts for my income and paypal transactions for the dates just prior to all this server melting. If it was not for Sean Donahoe and his products, I would not have been able to put a new roof on my house this summer, rebuild my old Harley, and generally upgrade my life.

Inner Circle Membership

I belong to the best internet marketing group I have ever heard of. Sean’s inner circle membership is the best thing I have ever seen in what it offers to a member. IMSC or Internet Marketing Success Center puts on Every Friday night and soon to be moved to Wednesday night, we have an Ask Sean session. He goes out of his way to be there live, for just us, and to answer questions we may have with our websites and marketing questions.

I don not know of anyone who offers this kind of value to his people. If I were you I would run as fast as you can and join up, you will not regret it one bit.

Join The Inner Circle!

I do hope you join us in the inner circle, it’s the best thing I have done in my online career. Mind melting session that will blow you away.  We will see you at the ask Sean sessions!
