Search Engine Presence, Ranking, and Trafficby Julie Zbeetnoff In light of my recent launch of Googalistic I have decide to repost my views on Groups Marketing ie. Yahoo Groups, Google Groups, MSN Groups.
have been using groups as part of my own promotional campaigns since
the very beginning of my on-line marketing career three years ago. I
had stopped once just because of how time consuming they can be and I
really did notice a difference in my stats so I resumed using them.
Although Groups will bring you great reliable traffic be careful with these.
post in related Groups and do not spam any board. You do not want to
work so hard to build up your promotion only to have it shut down due
to spam reports. Companies have very strict policies on spam and will
not hesitate to shut down an affiliate Url that is getting spam
reports. Before joining a new group I spend some time looking over the
group to see what type of posts are currently being posted. I carefully
read over the description of the groups and check out the 'about this
group' link to be sure these groups are free for everyone to post and
what the restrictions are, if any.
I personally promote to more
than 600 affiliate advertising safe groups about 4 or 5 times a week. I
do receive traffic to my websites from these posts but what these
groups do best is to help create 'backlinks'. Backlinks are simply
links from other place directed to your website. What do back links do
exactly? They improve your search engine ranking this is also known as
Search Engine Optimization SEO. These links also get individually
spidered by the search engines and your ad will show up when and if
someone is doing research on a company or just looking for info in
Hint: Play around with popular keyword search items.
The words scam, review, success, fraud, new, lucrative, profitable are
highly searched words. I suggest you try to work this into the
information of your ads. People are online looking to see if thier
program they are signing up for is legit. So they might type something
like..."Is E4L.biz a
scam?"as their search criteria. You are covered. If you question if
this actually works. Google E4L.biz into your web browser now and you
will see how many of my adverts are on the first 5 pages. If you googleE4L.biz and Scam you will see I have many of the listing on the first page titled "E4L.biz 100% scam free" , my group postings being in the number 2 position. There are 60000 members in this company!
2: Word your ad into an article. This is an example of a Subject
heading that will get indexed and searched, "Are MLM on-line companies
legit or Just Scam Pyramid Schemes". In fact if you type that into your
browser you will see my ads! In the end I write about how to
distinguish between a legit business and a scam and give an
example...the example of course is the company I promote.
course I have been intrigued by Group Submitters for quite some time
now as you can imagine posting to groups can be very time consuming
especially when you are mass posting which is most effective.
have payed for and tried a couple that have produced very poor results.
I don't believe in using trackers with Groups because of the SEO value
that groups hold but I did send out a few days worth of posting to
these submitters just to test the results. My results? A big zero! I
did searches fr my tracking URL which should show up in the search
engines within a week. Nothing. My obvious conclusion? They weren't
In fact the only positive review I have found on any Group Mailer was from a company called GroupMailers.
Apparantly this company sends out ads from their server but you have to
join each group and post with your user name. Somehow this makes sense
to me. The cost of Groups Mailer is $15 every month.
My solution to this whole Group Submitting dilema? I set up my own!
I used the same criteria as GroupsMailer in that you have to join each group and then you can post from my server once per day.
made the joining part easy by setting up a mass joining system in which
you upload a bookmarks file to your Firefox browser. You open all the
bookmarks in tabs which will open to each groups join page. You go
across your browser tabs and hit the join button for each group. Using
my system in 1 hour you can join all the groups. Considering I have
spent this much time everyday posting to groups I think it is quite
So far I have just set up for Google Groups but I
plan to add two more mailers for MSN and Yahoo. Since they all have
different criteria ie, html and plain text options I plan to keep them
separate unlike GroupsMailer.
