How to Enhance Website Visibility (6 ways)

If you have been battling with your website visibility, I will share in this post, a few ways you can improve the visibility of website website and get it seen by several people around the web.

Before we go on to sharing  how you can enhance the visibility of your website, I will like to tell you a story. We were about five hundred students in my basic school.

Out of the five hundred students, forty eight were in my class.

Some members of my class were more popular than others. Everybody knew Afi Gidiglo because she was fair and was identified by a chocolate-brown pinafore worn over her yellow polyester uniform.

Senyo Ahiaba Ahiaba was known but for entirely different reasons.

He was the storyteller. Almost everybody on campus labelled Senyo as the one hour story teller.

His stories were so captivating and long. He would be called to tell stories in different classes when it was entertainment or story telling time in the school.

There were some people who were not so popular.

For example Michael Ajatey or Lowe Doris were in my class but they were hardly known outside the class. I was not very popular in school.

To become known by my teachers and other students, I decided to do something drastic. More about that later.

Compare Your Website Visibility to the People in My Class

According to the worldwidewebsize.com,

The Indexed Web contains at least 4.69 billion pages (Friday, 07 June, 2013).
The Dutch Indexed Web contains at least 263.82 million pages (Friday, 07 June, 2013).

The sheer volume of available sites and the clutter can easily make your site go unnoticed.

There is hope however. You remember Senyo? He was a good story teller.

What about Afi? I am sure you can almost see where I am getting at.

If your site remains like Doris and Michael, it will be lost in oblivion.

 

Create a Brand and a Unique Proposition

Here is the point. Afi, had a unique brand. There is something that differentiated her from all of us in the school.

Her colour and her dressing. How does this relate to your site?

Your site requires a brand as well as a unique proposition.

When you have determined the brand of your site and your unique proposition, ensure that your keywords and articles are relevant.

The content you produce must not be haphazard. It must follow a consistent plan and must be in consonance with your unique selling proposition.

The relevance of your content to your brand and unique proposition will eventually pay off.

Do not try to trick search engines to gain SEO points.

Guest Post

Senyo was popular because of his stories. His stories did not remain only in our class. He told stories in other classes consequently, he was known for his long captivating one hour stories.

If your website or blog is to do well, you will need to guest post.

Guest posting can provide your site with some link juice.

The number of sites linking back to your website determines the authority of your site. You can also submit articles to high quality directories.

You can guest post on sites such as squidoo, hubpages, and so on.

Use Pictures

When you use pictures in your post, ensure that the pictures are properly described and relevant to your content. Relevancy is key. Also use the appropriate tags.

If you do not take the pictures yourself, make sure you are not infringing on someones copyright.

You can find free pictures at http://morguefile.com/ or tinypic.com.

You may also buy amazing and relevant pictures at istockphoto.com

Syndicate with Social Media

Social media has become very relevant not only in ranking your site, but in getting people to see it.

After you churn out your relevant and useful content based on your unique value proposition, people who are helped by it would share your  content with their friends using the various social media channels.

If your site makes it easier for people to share your content with their friends on facebook, twitter and the other social media sites, more eyeball will see your site.

This has a two way effect.

You will be seen first on social media and then search engines will begin to rank your content based on the engagements it receives on social media.

Check Your Metrics and Analytics

It is important to always measure which of your posts are faring favourably with your readers.

You also need to check how often people stay on your website. Google analytics is a wonderful free tool gauge your metrics.

Ensure that Your Site Loads Fasts

Many people will leave your site if it takes too long to load.

The key is to ensure that you have not overloaded your site with too many plugins and extensions that make it slow.

Internet Network Marketing – Reasons Why People Dont Make Any Money At All

Make Money with Internet Network Marketing

  • Many people do not make money with internet network marketing because they do not get started in the first place.

How can you make money from a business you never engaged in? Some say they do not have the initial capital to invest into their own business. Is this not the reason why they should actually find the money and take? Do you think you are the only one who has desired to make money from home or with internet marketing? Each day, there are several million people just like you looking for opportunities to earn part time income working from home. They see testimonials online of how some people are leveraging the internet (as in internet marketing) or leveraging the efforts of others (as in network marketing, or other business systems) to make huge sums of money. They see how they can actually make money. It all makes sense to them. They have carved out the plan in their heads how they would market this business and make it big time. They see great potential in affiliate and or network marketing. They know this would make all the difference for them.

Suddenly, they come up with the excuse, I do not have the money to start.

This is one of the dumbest excuses I have ever heard. I am surprised that people would spend over $100.00 on food and clothes. They however say they cannot afford have $25 to start a business of their own that they claim has the opportunity to turn their fortunes around. RIDICULOUS! Why were you seeking out to build your own business in the first place? Now, if you are using the lack of money as an excuse, does it make sense to you?

  • They are afraid they would get scammed

This is a genuine fear. The rise of the internet has opened the gates for a lot of scammers to dupe unsuspecting opportunity seekers of huge sums of money. Many people are scared to take the risk of joining programs that can help them kick start their home businesses. There is a solution to this problem. Learn how to spot illegitimate businesses when you are looking to build online. Gracefully, I have written a post on this topic. You can access it by clicking the link how to know if your home business is illegitimate.

  •  People say they do not know how to go about it.

A lot of people are pumped up. They want to get started. They want to make money but there is one problem. They do not know how to get started. What you need is coaching and support. Someone to make time for you in you beginning days. Will that not make all the difference for you? Find a mentor and ask them questions. Do what they ask you to do. Be sensible however

Many people never make money online because they are concerned with unimportant stuff. The look of their website, some plug in they do not have etc. There are only three steps to make money online.
a. Find a market in intense pain and provide the solution for that market. How? Go to the next step
b. Drive traffic to your capture page to build a list
c. Build a relationship with your list
d. Send them your solutions in the first step.

A Sad Story

If you ever knew of the great insurance sales man, R . U. Darby, you should also be familiar with his gold exploration escapade. Back in the 1800’s in the midst of the gold rush, R. U Darby and his uncle travelled from Maryland to Colorado to dig gold and get rich. They decided to stake a mining claim in Colorado. They were not lazy folks. They worked really hard. The sun smote their bare backs and their bodies produced heavy sweat. Once a while, each one would stop and wipe the sweat off his face. It was almost like their bodies were sprayed with water. See two men working with picks and shovels. They were determined to find gold and become wealthy.

GREAT NEWS!!! They found something.

After much toil, they found what they were looking for. They filled their cars with ore and sent it to the smelters to determine the gold content. The results showed that there was a lot of gold in the ore. This was what they had risked their lives for. They thought to themselves. We have to make this big time. Let us go and get heavy equipment so that we can mine the gold and grow rich. They covered up and went to tell their family about their find. They needed to raise the money to purchase these equipment. As you can imagine, the family members were thrilled at thought of owning what was going to become one of the richest gold mines in the States. You can also see that the money was easier to raise. Soon, they purchased the equipment they needed for their mining. They went back to Colorado to continue mining. The work went faster because the money made from their initial finds was great their desire to be rich got them to work harder and faster. They knew that if they made a few more loads, they would become very wealthy soon.
As they were digging and expecting to uncover more gold, something terrible happened. The gold VANISHED. No one could tell where it had gone. It disappeared. They had hope however. They continued digging trying to rediscover the missing vein which gave them their initial hope of wealth.

If you can see the opportunity, Don't give up too soon. Grab the Home business Opportunity
You Could Succeed at the End of the day

 

This time, their work did not pay off. At least, this went through their head.

With drooped heads showing their disappointment and discouragement, they packed their bags, sold their equipment for whatever money they could find and then moved back home. All their sweat and hard work had amounted to nothing. A junk man purchased the equipment and the field from them for peanuts.

This junk man was smart. He hired the services of a mining engineer to find out if the vein had disappeared for sure. The engineer predicted that, the gold is THREE FEET below where R. U Darby and his Uncle stopped digging.

For R. U Darby and His uncle, they lost an opportunity which they were sitting on.

Presently, there is a new wave… Is it a new wave? Well, many ordinary people are being made millionaires work from home or at home. Home based businesses give many ordinary people the opportunity to build the life of their dreams. Sadly however, the stats show that, over 95% of people fail or give up in their home business. The main reason why some people decided to join home business opportunities is the reason why they don’t start (More on this later). Some also give up too early just like Darby did. Are you one of these or do you know someone who thinks that building a business at home does not work? Have you given up because of the hurdles and challenges you faced? You could be JUST 3 FEET DEEP. Do what the smart Junk man did.

Have you ever lost an opportunity? Please share with us. Your own experience may help another person.

Your MLM Company May be Illegitimate – How to Tell

You may just be sitting on a time bomb. How can you be sure that the MLM company you are promoting or intending to promote is not the next Zeek Rewards or Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing (FTHM)? The pain many people have had to suffer and a drying of some income stream of affiliates is better not remembered. If you intend to engage in a long lasting business however, you will have to ensure that your priced opportunity could still be around for all times. Conduct due diligence in the areas that would be mentioned below.

How to tell a Network Marketing scamre
Scam Alert

Check With The Federal Trade Commission (FTC)

All you have to do is to visit the Federal Trade Commission website and enter the company name in the search box. Any issues filed against the company with the FTC will come up. Read them to determine what decisions you have to make. Please note, every information you gather will serve as a pointer to your final decision making.

Check with the Better Business Bureau (BBB)

The next step is to check the company’s BBB ratings. Check how many complaints were logded, what is the nature of these complaints and whether the issues have been resolved. This will provide some level of comfort. Every company that is doing business will have issues with their clients. If complaints are resolved and closed at the BBB, this is a very good sign. You may consider the company. Care must be exercised though.

Check The Company, Its Products and Business Model

If the only way you can really make money with your MLM is to promote the opportunity, you are in for a big trouble. Your company stands the risk of being categorized a pyramid scheme. It is obvious for instance that 90% of distributors in FTHM lost money. The only way that distributors could really make any substantial income was from recruiting down lines. Do not fall for illegal schemes.

Social Proof

The explosion of social media sites such as facebook, twitter, linked in, google plus, etc have made it so easy to find out what the popular view held by the public on a particular issue. You can mine very important information from what people say. Other sites such as scam.com may also be useful in conducting your due diligence.

When applying these rules, it is always good to keep your brains and look at things objectively. Some people will generally malign a company just because they have had a bad experience dealing with the company. This should not be the reason why you loose out on a great opportunity that may be begging at you.

Search Reviews on The Company

Indeed, there is a lot of crap on the internet lately. People write reviews just to promote their offers or to bad-mouth a company. These people do not deal with issues objectively. They are usually swayed by their emotions of bitterness or their greed for money. Don’t worry. You can always tell a good review from a bad one. Just read in between the lines. None the less, reading reviews can reveal important facts that should help you tell whether to go ahead with your company. To search the reviews of a company, you can just type the company name with words such as “complaints” “scam”, “review” etc. in the search engines. For a company XYZ, you could type XYZ Scam or XYZ review.

Is the Compensation Plan Difficult to Understand?

If the compensation plan of the company is difficult to understand, ask questions. Usually, compensation plans are thorny issues that bring companies to face the law. The more frequent a company faces trial, the higher the probability of the company being declared a pyramid scheme.

Go with Your Guts

Always go with your gut feeling. If it does not feel right to you, do not join the company. Many businesses have collapse because entrepreneurs have refused to listen to their gut feelings. Other entrepreneurs have flowered because even though every thing seemed right, their gut feelings opposed it. They were right most of the time.

The post above is just to provide you with a guide. Each of these methods is not failure proof. It is important that you ask questions. Also check with your attorney to make sure that you are making a sound, legal business decision.
