For some reason I don?t understand, I am feeling a little generous today and thought I would contribute something that may help some of the new guys still trying to figure out how to make a nickel or two. I thought I would discuss my very recent experiment with a brand new .INFO domain, so, hope this helps. I am a lazy SOB so if something involves too much work then I probably will not get involved. Having said that, if you aren?t turned off by the idea of a little work then follow these steps and you can build a long-term residual income. You don?t have to steal some Numbnut?s rehashed ebook to learn how to make money. When you build a new website it is just sitting out there naked. No Google love. Nothing. No one is going to give you those precious links you have to have. This little article is about stealing a little of that Google love for yourself. But first, about the .INFO thing. I enjoy reading through lots of worthless downloaded ebooks and watching garbage videos. It is kind of a perverse hobby. I keep reading and hearing about how you should try to avoid .INFO domains if your want to be taken seriously by Google and your visitors. Or, other gurus will warn you in ominous terms that it will take a lot longer and a lot more work to rank a .INFO domain than a .com, .net, or .org. It's kind of like hearing a chorus of pond frogs late at night. So, being the BHW contrarian that I am, I figured that the negative .INFO thing could be yet another load of Guru horseshit. I decided to find out for myself. I have close to a hundred .com?s, etc. so why not promote a ?cheap? .info? I bought a general two-word .INFO domain for the niche I wanted to target. It was a nice clean two-word phrase that makes sense without the extra hyphens or other wordy nonsense added to get the keyword domain I wanted. Then with Xsite Pro 2, I built 18 pages of information around specific products that have moderate to difficult competition. I could have used Wordpress. It doesn?t matter what you use to build the website. The 18 web pages are content I rewrote from product reviews, and manufacturers specifications. I then created a very small link wheel of 5 Web 2.0 sites that allow blogs, but did not close the wheel with interlinking. Why only 5 free blogs? Well, sometimes less can be more if you do it correctly. It does not matter what free blog service you use. Just pick a few good ones like Wordpress and Vox that allow ******** in the blog posts. Next I backlinked each of the 5 Web 2.0 blog properties with 50 profile links Angela Edwards style. Then, I used Magic Article Submitter to blast out only 1 spun article to the network of article sites available within the software. The Web 2.0 sites link to the inner pages of the website, and with the spin syntax of the article submitter I was able to alternate the links in each article so that I could point links to all the inner pages of my website I wanted to target. Two week after all the article submitting and backlinking of the Web 2.0 sites I now have 10 of the 18 product pages sitting on page 1 in Google. As a matter of fact, for some of the search terms the pages are sitting at position 1 on page 1 of Google. I'll start my next phase of back linking to secure the positions and hopefully move the rest of the pages up the listings. In short, I think that the advice to avoid .INFO domains is pure bullshit. I built and promoted the website white hat style. This makes me believe that I can test markets with a 99-cent initial domain cost and if I like the results, I likely will never have to come up with a crappy sounding .com name to feel, and be legitimate in the eyes of Google, and website visitors. And, to answer the question in your mind, yes, I have started getting sales. There is no adsense on the site. It is strictly affiliate products, but adsense would be ok too. I don?t really think it matters very much what domain extension you buy. The real key in this process is to have topically relevant content on your web page being linked to by other websites that have a theme or topic related to the page they are linking to on your website. You might want to think about what I just wrote in this paragraph, because it is a very important key. The trick, or ?Secret Sauce?, for the Web 2.0 sites, is to avoid the appearance of duplicate content. Otherwise your links will be quickly discounted as soon as Google spots the same article on different sites pointing to the same pages on your website. How fast can you say link manipulation? Well, sure as hell Google knows what you are doing. Avoid posting a spun version of the same article at all the Web 2.0 blog sites. You see, each spun article has exactly the same topic stated in a different way at each blog post and that is not going to help you very much. There is a much more effective way. Oh, and yes, contrary to popular belief, Google can sniff out spun articles too, but that doesn?t really matter for what we are doing here. Well, that ?Secret Sauce? really isn?t a secret after all since everybody knows that unique content is what Google wants anyway, but at lest I am not charging $67 to fool you into thinking it is a secret. Your next step is to just find a few crappy PLR articles and do an equally crappy, super-quick rewrite, and post them to the blogs. Just make damn sure your rewrite them without repeating word phrases. I will elaborate in more detail so this makes sense. For example, this phrase ?your next step is?, should be reworded to say something like, ?here is what should be done now?. Does that make sense to you? What you write doesn?t have to be pretty, or even good. It does need to be different from the original. You don?t have to have rewrite very many articles and the reason why will hopefully make sense in a moment. Now, let?s say your website is selling dog training ebooks and products from eBay, CJ, Amazon?who cares?you?re selling something, or you have adsense for the visitors to click on. Your Web 2.0 blogs should each be on a different topic within the dog training theme. Blog 1 would be posted with a poorly rewritten PLR article about crate training for dogs. Blog 2 will have an article about training with shock collars. So on and so forth until you are done posting your free blogs with helpful but very quickly rewritten PLR content. Do you see where we are going here? Each blog should have a completely different article, unlike a spun article that simply regurgitates the same information in a different way. Each blog will have resource links pointing to the inner pages of your website. Don?t post the exact same list of links with the exact same anchor text in every blog. Post your links back to your web pages at different places on each blog, vary the anchor text for each link, and change up the order of links. Don?t post all of your links at each site. Spread them out. Create more free blogs if you need to. I usually do not post more than 5 outbound links to my money pages from any one of the free blogs. Do you see what we are doing here? It is called diversity, or uniqueness. Google likes it. Is it more work? Yeah, but there are consequences for not doing it, like not ranking at all. Each, but not all of the blogs, will link to each other with something like - Hey check out this ?Shock the shit out of your dog Electric Dog Collars link, it might shock your dog into obedience.? The shock collar blog may link to the crate training blog, etc., etc. I personally do not think you should ever close a link loop within a network of themed blogs. This just makes it easy for Google to spot link manipulation. Just try to randomly interlink the blogs and use more free blogs if you need to. By doing all of this you are adding diversity and a degree of uniqueness within the dog-training theme network of blogs. You are developing a relevant cloud of links pointing back to your money pages. Does this make more sense than plastering the exact article or spun clones to free blogs? Can you see why Google would view the arrangement I am suggesting more favorably? Does it make sense that Google will value backlinks to your website from a small networked group of blogs engaged in a ?web conversation? aka interlinking, with unique blog content topics about the same theme far more than spun content blogs linked in an easily identifiable circle? Should you want to (and I recommend that you do) you can continue adding more 100 to 300 word posts to your free blogs for more backlinks. Add images to the blogs. Make each blog different. Post links in your blog to Wikipedia, .Gov and .Edu sites to lessen the impression that you are just building a link farm. Uniqueness is what Google wants. Give them what they want. Those blogs should begin to gain trust with Google and pop the link juice you send to your money pages. If necessary, build a bigger, better network of free Web 2.0 blogs for even more topically related links within the niche theme you want to promote. Get links to your free blogs from profile links, or links from articles you submit to article directories, and cross link your blogs randomly. Avoid patterns that can be detected easily, like posting the exact same article to ten different blogs with the same exact list of links, anchored with the same exact anchor text pointing to your money pages. You may as well fly an airplane banner that says Link Manipulation can be found here. Don?t have a niche? Don?t have a product? Don?t know how to make a sales page? Don?t know how to set up for adsense? Don?t know how to research keywords? No problem! There is enough free info here at BHW on all these topics to choke a horse. Find it. Read it. Use it. I hope this information is useful to some of you, especially newbies who get inundated with bullshit about making money. This information is nothing new or earthshaking. Google keeps telling us they want unique content. So, lets find a creative ways to give it to them. No doubt, other people will have strong opinions opposite to mine on this, but I can only follow the results and the money. Oh, and if I catch you making a ?Special Report? out of this and flogging it on DP or WF I will hunt you down and castrate you. This is just for BHW please. Ok, that?s it! No shit, it is that simple. Rinse and repeat. Good luck.
