Google Trends Show Downward Trend – Why?

Posted on December 7, 2012 
Filed Under SEO | 9 Comments

I’ve recently played with Google Trends and entered some tennis keywords in it to see what’s going on.

To my surprise some of the most popular keywords are less and less searched.

google trends

“tennis instruction” and “how to play tennis” are searched less and less every year while “tennis serve” remains quite constant. They all have peaks in the summers for northern hemisfere.

I wish I could give some answers for why that is – but I really don’t know. Read more

Recovering From Google Penalties And Who Can Help

Posted on October 11, 2012 
Filed Under SEO | 12 Comments

Being penalized by Google used to be something that happened only to bad people – to webmasters who practiced black hat techniques and who were building sites with questionable content.

Google penalty by Panda and Penguin

 

But these days, Google is on a rampage. In its war against spammers and those who deliberately want to game the system, Google has also hurt thousands of honest people trying to make a living online.

For them, it’s collateral damage, and you’re simply a website that lost rankings.

Knowing When To Quit – Does Your Project REALLY Have A Future?

Posted on September 16, 2012 
Filed Under Productivity Tips | 11 Comments

Today I have a guest post from my good friend Stuart…

Tomaz has just come for a short visit to Malta to get a little sun and warmth. It took the opportunity to rain – a real rarity here.

While here we discussed mindset – what else can you discuss with Tomaz other than tennis??? ;)

Stuart Langridge and me in Malta

Our conversation about business and success mindset lasted several hours – you need to be a bit geeky to hang around with us – and during that time I mentioned that I had recently been listening to an Eben Pagan training course, “How to build a successful business from scratch”.

I haven’t finished it yet, but am about half way through. Read more

The 3 Keys To Success

Posted on August 31, 2012 
Filed Under Productivity Tips | 6 Comments

Keys to success

What does it take to succeed in something?

Do you need to be a genius, a workaholic, a super organizer, or have a magical charisma?

I don’t think so.

There may be many elements to the puzzle of success, but you cannot miss three very important ones.

The Principle of Massive Action

A friend of mine wanted to quit her job and and use her expertise in what she loves to do – which is Pilates, aerobics, and everything in between. (Yes, there is even yoga-lates that she can teach you. ;) )

She was really unhappy in her current job, but she didn’t believe she could find enough lessons for herself in the somewhat crowded field of fitness and related topics. Read more

Why You’re Stuck And How To Get Things Moving Again

Posted on June 18, 2012 
Filed Under Productivity Tips | 13 Comments

Being StuckEver found yourself stuck in a situation regarding your online business or some other endeavor, where you were stuck and couldn’t move forward?

Did you keep postponing the thing that had to be done, while some other tasks were moving forward with no problems?

For example, I got stuck with a logo design once. I was ready with the content and general design of the site, and yet I still didn’t get the logo done.

Once a small lever was broken in my bathroom; it was the one that changed the bathtub faucet into a shower.

At first I wasn’t really aware of what was going on, but eventually I realized what the reason was. I had to use the pliers to switch between the faucet and the shower head, and even though that was a pain, I still didn’t fix the problem for quite a while. Read more

To Get Wealthy You Need To Get Comfortable With LOTS Of Money

Posted on April 15, 2012 
Filed Under Earn money online | 14 Comments

Loving money


“I love money and I love the idea of making even more money!”

Say that aloud and see if you’re comfortable saying it.

Can you say this to a friend comfortably – in fact, can you say it as passionately as when you’re explaining your latest travel adventure?

If not, some negative money beliefs may be holding you back.

The problem with negative or limiting beliefs about money is that they will cause you to subconsciously sabotage yourself along the way in your quest to earn more money.

On one hand you will want to earn money but on the other hand your subconscious belief that “Money is the root of all evil.” will contradict that initial idea and it will hold you from attaining more money.

Somewhere in our past we were taught to believe that there is something wrong with having a lot of money. Read more

The Fastest Way To Produce Content

Posted on March 26, 2012 
Filed Under Productivity Tips | 22 Comments

I’ve recently been experimenting with different ways of producing content – and by that I mean written content like this article for example.

My view is that we have a limited amount of time in this world but there’s an unlimited amount of money out there – and in reality 99.999999% of us will not die in bankruptcy.

time is money

 

So that means we’ll have money in our accounts until the last day. So why not trade it for time? Read more

Book Cheap Flights and Hotels With Paypal

Posted on February 12, 2012 
Filed Under Travelling Free | 8 Comments

Below you will find a comprehensive list of airlines and hotels that accept Paypal.

If you want to book hotels and / or book flights with Paypal just select one of the airlines or travel sites from the regularly updated list below.

Major Travel Sites – Worldwide Travel

There are just a few major travel sites where you can make an online booking for a flight AND hotel and pay with Paypal.

1. CheapOair.com – At the moment you can only book flights and pay with Paypal. Hotels, car rental and vacation have to be paid with credit card – but that can change in the future – so worth checking if the paypal payment option is available.

2. Hotwire.com – You can get great deals on hotwire.com but the Paypal payment option is not always possible. Definitely worth a try.

Paul from Marathon-Training-Tips.com

Posted on February 3, 2012 
Filed Under Success With Site Build It | 12 Comments

When Paul from marathon-training-tips.com contacted me and showed me his traffic stats I saw a typical growth of a site where someone is working hard “behind the scenes”. It takes time for Google and other search engines to really take your site seriously, but when they do, it’s a completely different “ball game”.

1. Why did you decide for SBI?
Well, let’s go back to 2007. This is when it all started. In summer 2007 I decided  to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to experience the ultimate feeling of freedom and being one with nature.

When I finally made it to the summit in January 2008 I knew this feeling of freedom in all its aspects was something I wanted to strive for in my life. The journey started… Read more

Keyword Research Tips – Use Google Adwords To Find Related Keywords

Posted on January 15, 2012 
Filed Under SEO | 1 Comment

Keyword research is critical for building the blueprint of your site and it’s critical that you choose the keywords that have some demand and not too much supply if you want to get good traffic to your site.

But how to do that is often explained very differently and also very confusingly.

So let’s simplify this is as much as possible.

I’ll be using the SBI’s Brainstormer (the alternative is Wordtracker) and Google Adwords to show you how to build a keyword list in 4 easy steps.

1.    Determine your main theme (site concept) keyword

What is the key ;) keyword of your site? What is the crux of the information you want to share?

This keyword is typically a one or two word keyword (rarely three word). Read more
