Editor's Comments 

Barry Scott -Digest Editor

I have had several inquiries regarding Affiliate links and Free ads. So just as a brief reminder here is how they tie in together. Any Adlandpro Member who is an Adlandpro Affiliate can place as many free ads as they like.

Free ads will run for as long as the member/affiliate keeps the link intact or removes the ad themselves. Free ads are the best way to see what type of results the ad will produce before you invest in the ad.  

Once you have some feedback from you ads you can start looking at promoting the ad with Impression or Traffic Credits or look at one of our ad packages, they can all be found by Clicking Here.

As always any feedback or questions are always welcome, just click on my name below

Sincerely, Barry Scott Editor

Link Building - 5 Myths That Kill a Marketing Plan

By Amy Cox
You have surely heard of the importance of link building. After all, link building is quickly becoming more important than SEO is for getting a site recognized in the internet community. However, like every important marketing strategy, there are misconceptions that will lead to failure. Thus, it is essential to avoid those misconceptions in order to get the most out of link building.

Myth 1: Reciprocal Links Lead to Increased Page Rank

This is one of the most common and most abused practices in link building. Many people, internet marketers included, believe that they can swap links with other companies and then improve their page ranking. In reality, this will not help your ranking at all. You want to have one way links, and when you swap links, the two links basically cancel each other out. Don't waste your time looking for others to swap links with. It will not help your business.

Myth 2: Any Link Will Help

If a website that is ranked near the bottom of the pack links to your website, you will not benefit greatly from the link. That is because the search engines use a formula in regards to linking. They assign a greater value to sites that have one way links from high ranking sites. Don't discourage others from linking to your site, but understand if they don't have a good ranking, they won't improve your ranking much at all.

Myth 3: Once I Get My Links Up, I'm Done

This is a common mistake webmasters make. They spend months getting links all around the internet, and then they forget about them. Sites become inactive or slip in the rankings, and thus they are no longer as helpful. When it comes to link building, the more links you have, the more powerful you are. Therefore, you do not want to stop the link building process. You need to make sure the links you have continue to help you, and you also need to add more when you can.

Myth 4: Interlinking is a Powerful Technique

At one time, interlinking could be found all over the internet. Basically, interlinking is the practice of creating multiple websites that cover the same topic. Each site is SEO rich, and each of the sites link to the others. This is to increase the link relevancy of the sites. This is one of the most frowned upon black hat tactics on the market and should be avoided.

Myth 5: Link Building is Fast and Easy

If this were true, there would be a greater battle for the top few spots in the search engine rankings. In reality, link building is a long process, and it needs to be done correctly. Shortcuts in regards to link building rarely achieve strong results. Thus, you need to take your time and get the right kind of links. If a company promises you 500 links in two weeks, you might want to take a step back and decide how they are going to make that happen. They will likely give you the kind of links that will not help your search engine rankings.

Link building is essential if you want your site to move up in the search engine rankings. Take your time with link building in order to get the kind of links that will truly help you. While the process will take some time, the results are very rewarding when the process is done correctly.

 Top 10 Ways To Attract and Keep Good People

By Michael Angier

Building and Maintaining a Loyal and Winning Team

One of the biggest challenges facing businesses in the 21st Century is finding and keeping loyal, talented and conscientious employees. Our highly- tuned economy will be in constant demand for the high-octane workforce.

This list will help not only the manager or owner who wants to meet this challenge head-on but also the employee who wants to seek out companies dedicated to developing a supportive, win-win corporate culture.

1. A Game Worth Playing. People want to be part of something bigger than they are. Earning a good pay check isn't enough. The new millennium demands a clear mission that everyone buys into. If you don't have one, create one.

2. Honesty. Nothing fosters dissatisfaction more than unfair treatment or dishonest communication. There should be no secrets in the organization. Keep things in the open. Most progressive companies have open books. Nothing is off-limits. Make it safe to tell the truth--the good news and the bad.

3. Recognition. Something as simple and easy to do as praising and showing appreciation should be a no-brainer. But you'd be surprised at how poorly this is done. Share the credit and acknowledge people and departments for their success. If you look for reasons to praise, you'll find them. What gets attention gets recreated.

4. Clear Purpose. Simple Rules. Make sure everyone knows the game so they can keep their eye on the ball.
What may seem obvious to one may not be to others.
Talk about where you and the company are going and why. Everyone needs to know the game and the rules in order to win.

5. Opportunity. Make opportunity more important than security. Once basic needs are met and a certain security level achieved, what will attract and keep good people is the opportunity to move up with greater responsibility and more income potential.

6. Unique Benefits. With a little brainstorming, you can create unique and valuable benefits to your staff that costs little or nothing to provide.
People appreciate and will stay in a job that offers benefits that show you care about them.

7. Exercise Leadership. Lead people, manage projects and nurture leadership. If you lead with ideas, people will follow. Leadership will be evident across the board, not just top down.

8. Training. Train people like they will stay forever, treat them like they could leave tomorrow (they can!). A valuable employee becomes more valuable through experience and training.

9. Know Your People. Practice MBW--
(Management By Wandering Around). The more your people know how much you care, the more they will care how much you know and listen to you. Know them, know their wants. Know what works and what doesn't.
Help them get what they want.

10. Have Fun. The worker for the new
millennium doesn't want to just put in his or her time and collect their paycheck. They want to enjoy the process. Find ways to celebrate progress. Schedule regular activities that foster community. Make it fun.

Common Technical Questions

I had an account with you several years ago and I now have two accounts with Adlandpro. Is there anyway I can transfer my friends and ads over from my old  account to the new one?

For security reasons we do not have the ability to change user names, or transfer or merge information from one account to another account even for the same User. The only option would be to re-register with us but you would be starting from scratch as we cannot transfer any of the information from one account to another.

If you want to proceed with a new account we would need to know so we could disable the email addresses associated to any accounts you have created with that email so to allow you to re-register with the same email.

If you have any questions regarding email notifications or if we can help in anyway please contact us.
