The Relationship Between Google+ And Small Businesses!

Target Market

Google was the center of attention of the internet for many years and it has gone by unchallenged until the rise of Facebook started. Although the influence of Facebook and its role on the internet has grown significantly in recent years, Google isn’t something that can be replaced. In fact, Google’s role as a search engine still remains to be the untouchable. However the threat that Facebook target market poses to Google is there and Google recognizes this. This is why Google has decided to fight back with Google+.

The Relationship Between Google+ And Small Businesses!Google+ is a made to compete with Facebook and it is slowly gaining its popularity. Although its growth isn’t as strong as the growth that we’ve seen repeatedly on Facebook, Google+ is slowly but surely increasing its influence on the social media world. Most importantly what this all means is that Google+ in itself can be a good traffic source for your business. Hence in order to understand the relationship between Google+ and small business we must look into the benefits of why any serious online entrepreneurs should take up a certain amount of interests on Google+.

Get good integration with other Google services.

The first advantage that you will get from Google+ if you compare it to Facebook is that you will get a good integration with other Google Services with your Google+ account. This means you can link all your accounts together and use a lot of the features that Google has provided in all their services. This could prove to be very beneficial to you and your business in the long run especially if you use a lot of Google’s services such as Google Adwords, Google Analytics, Google Trends, and Google’s External keyword tool, Google Adsense or even SEO.

What this ultimately means to you is that you can get all the great tools as an internet marketer and most of this service can be integrated with each other as the compatibility of the services are very high. More importantly, future updates of the Google’s services could mean a lot to your business.

Using Google+ may help your site rankings.

If you are using Google+ to promote or back link to your sites that you wish to rank high, it could actually help your site rankings. While there is no official proof of this bias, we all know just how much ‘Blogger’ (owned by Google) gets a lot of high ranking blogs on the search engine rankings and it will only make sense that Google should rank their own Google+ pages higher than its competitors.

Therefore if you are into SEO of if you are trying to rank any of your site high on the search engines especially Google, you should give Google+ an honest try. Who knows that this could be a move that you’ll never forget.

Everyone can see your Google+ profile (including non-members)

On Facebook, one of weakness in the eye of a marketer is that not everyone is able to see your profile online due to privacy reasons. Google+ has taken a different approach. Google+ is actually helping marketers in the sense of allowing the general public to see all the profiles even if you are not a member of Google+. As a marketer this is a wonderful research tool although we can’t say the same about privacy issues.

However, most Google+ users are notified about this transparency and they have a choice to see if they wish to create an account or not. Hence, this means, you can do your market research all day long with the profiles within Google+ and it will be completely legal.

Make sure that your target market is there in Google+.

Using Google+ would mean that you will have to take extreme care in your marketing moves. One of the reasons is that because Google+ is a lot newer than Facebook, the amount of traffic is definitely much lower than Facebook. Hence you will need to find out if your target market exists within Google+ or not. The good news is, this can be easily remedied with some clever market research within Google+.

And if your target market exists within the Google+ social network, then you are in luck. You can quickly use multiple ways (free or paid) to actually reach these potential customers. Marketing to the people within Google+ will be quite similar to the audience within Facebook. One will need a tactic to reach your target market, take them away from the distractions of the social network and market to them separately outside of Google+. The best way to do this is to use the traffic from Google+ and then build a list from that traffic.

Once your target market list is built, you will essentially have a list that is targeted and that is when your marketing strategies will come handy. Learn to build a good relationship within the list and you will reap the benefits of having a list. Essentially, as a marketer you will be using the Google+ social network as a way to engage your target market, listen to what they have to say, nurture your brand awareness within the network and finally market to the traffic the smart way.

Getting online help for free and where to find them.

Getting online help for free if you are still new to internet marketing then you should be awfully familiar with the feeling of being lost or confused with all the information that you would be getting on how to make money online on a daily basis. Everywhere you go, there will be people trying their best to market their product to you… be it legitimate or a junk product. Hence it won’t be a surprise then if one would feel as if they got sucked into a pile of quicksand where the more you struggle the faster you will sink.

And if you are thinking of getting some help from the so called gurus that are sending you marketing offers each day, then you are in for a shock. Most of the gurus that you contact will not reply you especially if it isn’t a support question. And if it is a support question, you will probably be hearing from their support staff instead. At most you from a lengthy email filled with your cries for help and questions that needs to be answered, all you get from a reply from the gurus are just short one liners that only answers part of your question if not at all. So you are out of luck then to get help and thus you go about buying more courses on the internet? Well the good news is, there are actually places where you can get help and useful information helping you propel through your newbie-hood if you know where to find them.

Forums is the first place you should visit for help are the forums within your niche and the internet marketing niche. The forums are filled with helpful individuals that will try to give you the best answers that you need. You see, the way this works is that ‘Forum Marketers’ try to be as helpful as possible in order to get their brand and name out there and when they do that consistently, their signatures with a link to their offers get seen. This means they get a lot more exposure to their offers for free and they will also get a lot of trust and reputation which helps with conversions as well.

This is then very good news for those who are new in the game and wishes to get help for free online. You can ask pretty much anything you want on the forums. However, the only problem is that you might not get the best answers from everyone, but surely there will be people who are qualified and are willing to help you out. You need to be extra careful as well not to get on the bad side of some of the people in the forum as they could be quite harsh sometimes. All you need to do is to be humble and ask in a polite manner.

Another thing that you should be aware of is that you should try your best read the rules of the forum and only open up a new thread is your question has never been asked before. Before you ask, you should do a search on the forums first to see if there are others before you who have asked similar questions. Try not to duplicate your post and post your thread in the right categories. People in the forums are very particular about these things. Other than that, if you don’t break any rules and follow them closely you will find that a good forum can be the starting place for your success.

YouTube is like a huge library of videos filled with all kinds of videos. The good thing is, within YouTube you should be able to find a lot of ‘How to’ videos making it a very good place if you need a step by step guidance on some of the technical works required in the internet marketing field. What this means to you is that whenever you are stuck or confused on a technical problem you can search YouTube for a quick step by step guide to help you get things done. For example, if you are unsure how to install a WordPress blog, all you have got to do is go to YouTube and do a simple search on how to install a WordPress blog and you’ll be sure to find it there. Not only that, you could even find how to videos on the simplest task such as what softwares you can use to create PDF files or how to use MS word to edit your work. There is tons of great information in there waiting to be explored.

Google is very useful when it comes to search for information that you need to help you for just about anything in life. Hence the term GIYF which means, Google is your friend. For example, if you are looking to find out how you can start your own blog, all you have to do is do a quick search on Google and sure enough you should be able to find the most relevant search results to what you are looking for.

You can use Google to find tutorials, or even relevant courses that you might need to help you out with your business. At any phase of your online business lifetime, you can always consult Google for free for the best information out there. More often than not, you might find useful information being shared free online via Google search engine which are better than those that you find on a paid course. Even expert marketers will still make use of Google to help them improve their business.

For example, a veteran marketer who is trying to look for ways to improve their landing page conversion will do a search on Google for ‘best landing page examples’ or ‘proven landing page templates’. This kind of search will get you very good answers that you just might need to help your business grow. You know what they say… ask and ye shall receive because… GIYF (Google is your friend). I hope you realize how important it is to not only
back up your site (saving you months of lost productivity if anything happens) but also cloning a brand new WordPress site (saving you hours of productivity setting it all up from scratch)…

That’s why you need to get Backup Creator right now especially because you can now:

backup automatically (daily or weekly)
backup to FTP (right in your browser)
backup to an email attachment (right in your browser)
restore from FTP (right in your browser)
restore from a browser upload
restore anywhere

In other words, we think this is now the #1 backup and cloning plugin available anywhere for WordPress — and as of yesterday, it’s now being used on over TWENTY THOUSAND WordPress sites! Don’t just take my word for it, see it in action here:

Advanced Article Syndication Techniques.

Article Directory Submissions

Article marketing is one of the earlier methods of online promotions that internet marketers have been doing to get traffic and sales for their online business. These days, the term Article Syndication seems to have made it into the spot light. This is not to be confused with Article Directory Submission because Article Directory submissions are no longer as effective as it was before a few years ago due to the main fact that Google has ‘lost’ their focus on these sites.
People have been speculating that Google have turned their heads away from some of those big Article Directories because of ‘duplicate contents’ or simply just contents that are crappy where most of the contents are short. Ideally, everyone was aiming for the 500 words article and of course these article directory submissions would not be lengthy enough to elaborate on anything of the topic the author is writing.

In the past, this is purposely done so that readers are left hanging, and if they wish to learn more they will have to click the provided URL to get more info (that’s how people gather traffic via Article Directory Submissions in the past). This is no longer as effective anymore since a majority of the Articles that ranked high on the Article Directories are no longer on those top spots anymore and thus the search engine traffic that authors have relied on has disappeared.
However, Article Directory Submissions can still be used to get traffic from readers who browse on article directories or hopefully your article gets picked out by some web publishers who can provide you with a lot of traffic from their websites. Article Syndication however, takes a slightly different approach in Article Marketing where as an author you will focus on writing the best content you can and submit it to big sites on your niche hoping that the editors will pick your Article and feature it on their website.

This usually means that you will be able to get a surge of article directory submissions traffic and the best part, these articles will continue to work for you to gather traffic for as long as these big sites exist. Here are some ‘advanced’ tips to help Article Syndicators do better in their business.

Build a list

Getting traffic online is hard. So whenever you have the chance to build a list, you should. This is because with a list, you can reach these people who gave you their permission to contact them over and over again. This is priceless even for an article directory submissions marketer. You do not want to pass up the chance to build a traffic source of your own. When you have your own list that is large enough, you will find that your list could be self-sufficient to provide you with your daily bread on top of the traffic that you are getting from your articles.

On the internet, the power of giving first is not to be underestimated, and building a list gives you a chance to give out some of your best stuff first. This way, you will be able to brand yourself and thus later when you plan to monetize your list, you will find it a much easier task to convert these people who are on your list. This is because your constant communications with them will have already helped you create a strong brand awareness that will without a doubt build a strong bond and relationship between you and your subscribers.

Therefore, be sure to employ a list building strategy with the traffic that you get from your article marketing efforts. Learn to place your landing page as a squeeze page and give some rare or valuable content to those who have decided to learn more about you after reading your articles. This way, you get traffic and you get to keep it. Some would argue that you might lose quite a lot of the traffic that comes from your articles and decided not to sign up on to your newsletter.

This problem can be easily remedied with a quick exit pop up script where you can directly and save the traffic and get them to land on your website or any page of your choice. Of course, this could be done on the other way round where the traffics coming into your website are first shown to your website with pure content, and then you will only try to get them to book mark or subscribed to your newsletter when they are there. Otherwise, you can just grab their contact when they try to leave once again using the exit pop scripts.

Personalizing Your Articles.

When you are writing your articles, be sure to include a story or your personal experience in your field. This presells your readers and tells them what to expect from you, and thus they will understand that your experience and expertise in the field is in fact genuine. Personalization can go a long way to help you show your readers how much you know and how much they can trust you to solve their problems. Doing this the correct way, you will effectively see a lot more clicks through on your links and of course a lot more sign ups to your newsletters as well.

Make sure to present your landing page with nice graphics and make sure it looks professional and neat. Trust can be built with the first impressions, and we all know how fast a person will make a first impression of you. The better the first impression on your image is, the better you will be able to build a strong bond or relationship with your to be subscribers.

These two powerful tips can easily get your Article Marketing business to the tops. It takes time to build a strong subscriber base, and it will take time to build trust and a good relationship with your subscribers. Therefore, for beginners, people who are desperate for money, the best way to go is to earn some quick capital first and then build a list later. However, if you are not pressed by survival, time or money, then you should jump right in order to build that list. You will reap the rewards later on.

The Penguin Link.

Contextual Links

After the Google Penguin Update and lots of slapping of websites around, people are generally afraid of Google. And quite frankly, we believe that is what Google wants as well because they do not want people to try to outsmart them. Hence they’ve slammed their ban hammer at every website that is brave enough to try and fool Google to think that their website should rank high for no reason.

The Penguin Link.Contextual Links
You can no longer spam for backlinks or use junk contents to try and trick Google into rewarding you with a good ranking. In fact, those who did so before got hit hard with Google’s algorithm change. It’s not news that Google does thing their way and makes dramatic changes while killing people’s business without any remorse. Therefore, every step you take for your business, you need to be very careful especially if you are dealing with the almighty G.

The good news is that it is still possible to rank high in Google using SEO tactics, but the bad news is that it is not going to be that easy anymore. Below we shall discuss some of the thing you can and cannot do after the Penguin update.
What is a risky link?

One question that most SEO marketers have come to as themselves are what links are actually risky when it comes to backlinks and Google. Obviously, Google do not take all backlinks as a good link anymore. In fact, if you will soon realize that most backlinks that people were spamming for a year ago are effectively dead now.

Here are some of the things that we think might look suspicious in Google’s watchful eyes.

Anchor text rules.

One rule that you need to be careful when it comes to backlinks is that if you are having too much anchored links, and if you anchor links looks suspicious. The word here is spam. You want to avoid that as much as possible.

Always mix up your anchored links and do not use more than 15% of the same anchor text. You need to be extra careful here because if you have too much of the same anchor text, not only will you alert Google you will look unnatural to the human eye as well Remember the main goal of Google is so that your site is at a quality where the human eye will love it as well.

A clever way to mix things up is to use some URLs without any HTML coding on it as all. This mean you do not hyperlink some of your links, and sometimes you might find it to be rewarding to actually mix in some misspelling mistakes in there as well. Just be sure to make it look natural and only mix in some of these elements once in a while.
Are your links related?

Gone were the days where you can just get backlinks from just about any sites or links. Nowadays, it’s all about links that comes from sites that are in your niche and that are closely related to what your website is about. We know that this is making it hard to get a lot of this kind of backlinks but remember this, after the Penguin update, the number of your links is no longer as important as the value of your links.

Hence, be sure to provide the best of values in every link you get but be sure to make them look natural as well A great way to get these related links from relevant sites in your niche is that you can try guest blogging. This is a great way to get back links out there and at the same time get some traffic from other websites as well. The mutual benefit that the site that publishes your article is that they will get more quality content with much lesser work. Besides Guest blogging you can try forum commenting and blog commenting as well. If done well you will surely be able to get some legit links back to your website and thus getting you in a good spot in Google’s ranking system.

Contextual links
Contextual links are basically links that you see in the context of a webpage at the side bar, footage or the header. These links are very hard to get, and that is why these links are highly regarded by Google to be very quality links. In the past, Clever SEO Artists will use blog networks (essentially their own networks of blogs created just to give their main site a contextual link) to get a lot of contextual links that will get them high in the search engines.

However, this has angered the scary Google a lot and thus this has caused Google to actually brutally kill all those blog networks. Therefore, the only way you should be getting contextual links these days are to get them legitimately. Remember, you can’t get too much of these contextual links and link them to your site because it will look unnatural because Google thinks these links are very hard to get, and if you’ve got a lot of them this will look suspicious to Google.

Too many links?

Think about it this way, if you are to build your links naturally, then you can’t have 100 backlinks a day. Google is smart enough to realize this now, and this means you need to slow down on your link building and ease the automation of link building softwares. Be very careful with these back link numbers because Google will not tolerate spam these days.

Besides that, if you are able to get a lot of links per day, you need to question how quality are your links because the easier you are able to acquire the links usually means the lower the quality of the links that you are getting. Try getting higher-quality links instead because they will give your site more value than sites with a lot of junk and useless links.

Contextual Links = The Penguin Link.
