5 Myths About Google Penalization

Posted by on Jan 2, 2010 in Blogging advice

There are all sorts of penalization myths going around and I thought I’d share my views about them. Just using the word “myths” should give you the first hint what they really are. 😉

Here are the most common myths of why Google and other search engines might penalize your site:

1.Will Google penalize me if I link to non-related sites?

No, unless you link to porn or sites that spread malware and other crap. The Internet is a World Wide Web which means that websites interlink with each other in many different ways.

If you write about your topic you’ll link most of the times to sites that are related to your topic – since you want your visitors to learn more.

Benefited From FreedomIdeas.com? Here’s How You Can Return The Favor…

Posted by on Dec 22, 2009 in Blogging advice

A reader of FreedomIdeas.com emailed me today that he’d like to thank me for all the free info on this site by giving me a link to any of my sites.

It was suggested before that I should put up a Donations button but I don’t feel it’s the right thing here.

I am happy to share what I know (or think I know 😉 ) and am really happy to see other people succeed online.

That’s why I never really treated this blog like a business model. It’s more like a journal of my Internet adventure and a channel for helping other people on this journey.

What YOU Have To Do Or What Has To Be DONE

Posted by on Dec 11, 2009 in Blogging advice

When you start your adventure on the internet by starting your own online business, you almost inevitably assume that you have to do everything yourself.

There’s content writing, website design, link building, interacting on social networks, participating on related forums, doing research for finding suitable websites for link exchanges and the list goes on and on.

While I personally recommend that you start doing everything yourself at the beginning (to better understand how this Internet thing works), you don’t have to stay stuck in this “mode”.

When Timing Is Crucial – The Blogging Traffic Rush

When Timing Is Crucial – The Blogging Traffic Rush

There are some theories that Google indexes blogs faster than classic static sites but I haven’t seen any analysis proving that. I have seen blog posts getting indexed very fast, like my last Copaclick review which I could see in Google in just 7 minutes.

I’ve also seen my articles from my »static« SBI sites being indexed very quickly – in a matter of minutes too.

But since most static websites focus mostly on keywords that get searched over and over again, blogs can focus on keywords that happen »now«.

Getting a blog post quickly up when something interesting happens is crucial to get lost of traffic. Realize that this traffic will typically NOT monetize well since people are just curios and are not in the buying mode.

But still, they might subscribe to your newsletter, the RSS feed or even bookmark your site for later.

How And What To Outsource

Posted by on May 2, 2009 in Blogging advice

You may be looking to outsource some of the work related to your online business once it expands. I strongly recommend that if you’re just starting out, do everything yourself.

Write articles and share your passion and knowledge with other people, build links yourself by submitting articles, looking for link exchanges and using other link building strategies, and do all the other work related to your site, like setting up a newsletter, setting up an RSS feed and so on.

If you follow this process for a year or so, you’ll most likely start earning some money which you can then use to buy yourself more time.

In my opinion, there is almost an unlimited amount of money we can earn in our life, but only limited time that we’ll be here.

That’s why time is more precious than money and I use money to buy myself more time to do what I wish and not what I have to.

That’s where outsourcing comes in. What can you outsource?

Worried About the Competition Online?

Posted by on May 4, 2008 in Blogging advice

I recently chatted with a friend through Gmail, and she was slightly worried.

She was building a site in a certain niche and found out that other people were building their sites on the same concept. She used SBI and actually found a couple of SBI-ers building their site in the exact same niche.

Should I continue? Do I stand a chance now that even someone using an SBI system is going for this niche?
