5 Internet Marketing Tips For Getting Massive Readership

Internet marketing tips are usually very generic. When I first started out with Internet marketing I read thousands of articles with almost all of them giving conflicting advice. So when I finally go through all of the bad advice, good advice and technical jargon, I started to see what was actually working and what was not.

One of the best things about Internet marketing is the fact that there are an infinite amount of niches that you can choose from. But not every method is going to work for every niche. Here are 5 Internet marketing tips that will work for every niche.

1. Attach NoFollows To Affiliate Links

Whether you're using Clickbank, Shareasale, Amazon or Ebay attach a nofollow attribute to your affiliate links. If you're like me, you probably have at least 5-6 advertisements on your blog posts or website pages at a time. This can be confusing to the Googlebots when they come to your site. When you attach a nofollow attribute to your links you will tell the bots that you're not trying to rank the linked websites.

When you have dofollows attached to your links the bots are going to see affiliate links the same way they see any internal backlinks that you put on the page. If you don't have a nofollow tag the bots will also leave your site. Put these tags on any links that will be leaving your website to keep the bots indexing your posts.

Here is an example of a link and how to apply the nofollow tag:
“<a href=”/youraffiliatelink.com” rel=”nofollow”>anchortext</a>

2. Use Automation Software Carefully

Submission software can be great tools, but they can also be the reason that your site not ranking properly. I use SENuke XCR, Rankbuilder NEO and No Hands SEO every day, but I know how to use them. There are a ton of marketers that get these software programs and blast away at their money sites.

If you use SEO software, make sure that you actually know how to use them. Building links too fast can get you penalized by the search engines. If you use this software too quickly, you can even get your website banned. Yes, these tools can help get you ranked, but they can also ruin weeks or even years of work.

If you're going to use these tools, make sure that you are using original content and that you're using them on your tiered backlink sites.

3. Use Article Marketing On Web 2.0 Sites

Web 2.0 sites like Hubpages, Squidoo, Blogger, Yahoo Voices and Wordpress are some of the best platforms for building backlinks. There are a lot of Internet marketers that will tell you article marketing is dead. This is simply not true. How can content be king, but article marketing is dead? That doesn't make any sense.

Article directories such as Ezines are dead, but Web 2.0 sites are thriving. One of the best ways to get readership is to do a search for your title in the “Search” bar of sites like Hubpages and Squidoo. You want the title to be completely original. On Squidoo, you will get a “Congratulations! Build A Lens On This Topic” message when your title is completely original. Don't use rehashed titles for your lens or Hubpage articles.

4. Build Tiered Backlinks

Back in the mid 2000s, link wheels were king. Now that Google and Bing have discovered ways to track link wheels, tiered backlink structures are the new way to go. You can still do massive link wheels that are impossible to track by the search engines, but they take a lot of time to create.

Tiered backlinks basically mean that you have 5-10 websites pointing back to your money site. These are your 1st tier sites. Then you have 15-20 links pointing back to your 1st tier for a 2nd tier. And so on and so on.

Once you have these tiers in place you will start to see your website climbing in the ranks very quickly. The key is to have original and readable content. The Best Spinner is great for spinning original content and putting it up on tiered backlink sites.

5. Don't Focus Too Much On Social Media

I know this goes against everything that you have heard, but in my humble opinion, social media is not as important as organic search results. Sure, somebody might see your Twitter post and go check out your new blog post, but isn't more likely that they would click on the first page of the Google SERPs if your site was there?

Social media is important, but it's not the end-all to Internet marketing. Focus more on creating great content. If you have great content, somebody is going to link to it, thus doing your social media for you.
