Editor's Comments 

Barry Scott -Digest Editor

Is there anything you can do that will guarantee success in business? That is a tough question to answer because you can do all the right things and it still does not ensure you will succeed. I think the best way to look at it is, there are things you can do on a smaller scale that will be guaranteed to work and you have to keep in mind the old saying about "there are only two things in life that are guaranteed"...!

I believe our efforts should try and focus on making all the best possible moves with some thought behind them. If you are offered a guaranteed success plan what is it going to hurt to ask some questions? If it's such a sure thing what's wrong with taking the time to find out how sure and at what level? Is it going to make you 2-5% more, 10-15%, you have to know what the expectation is and how it gets there. It may be the level that you want and sure it is possible that it will work, just make sure it is what you need and cost more than it's worth.

Link Building - Growing Your Online Business

By Terry Philpott
Link building plays an integral part in the growth of any online business. In fact having inbound links to your site not only increases web site traffic but also benefits your search engine ranking.

Explaining further, inbound links are regarded by search engines as a show of respect or relevance for your site by other sites that are linking up with yours. This will usually result in a higher ranking for your site in the search results. With that said the more links you have, the higher you are regarded.

The question now is how do you go about creating inbound links for your own website? Well let's review a few VERY EFFECTIVE and COST FREE approaches you can take to create more inbound links to your website.

#1 Article Submissions

Writing and submitting articles that are related to the niche you're in is a very effective means of creating more inbound links. In fact this method of online marketing is also extremely effective at generating highly targeted traffic to your site.

An important aspect of this type of traffic generation is that when you submit your articles be sure the article directories you submit to have a high page ranking. Once your article is published this creates a link between your site and the article directory. Now two things will occur that will benefit your online business here. Not only will this increase traffic to your site but by having an inbound link from the higher ranking article directory site this will ALSO boost your search engine ranking.

#2 Get Involved at Forums

Visiting forums is something you should already be doing. These sites are obviously are a great way to get questions answered but you should also contribute as well. By leaving thought provoking and useful comments you'll enhance your reputation as an authority in the field. When you incorporate a link back to your site in your signature file you'll also generate targeted traffic along with additional inbound links that will help increase your search engine ranking.

#3 Visit Blogs within Your Niche

Blogs are a terrific source of fresh information since they are usually updated frequently. Similar to forums in the way that visitor participation is encouraged, blogs allow the exchange of fresh ideas amongst both visitors and the site owner.

Here again the opportunity to leave a link back to your site in your signature file increases your chances to boost your web site traffic. The additional inbound links to your site once again will benefit your search engine ranking.

Of important note here is that you want to comment ONLY when you have something useful to contribute. If your intentions are to comment just to gain additional online traffic back to your site this will be noticed and your comments will be ignored. This is not the type of reputation you want to have in the blogging community and it is one that will be hard to change.

As you can see link building will not only boost your site ranking but it can also quickly generate you additional traffic for your online business. The 3 approaches we discussed here are simple to implement, cost free, and very effective at helping you grow your business. With that said there's no reason you can't start creating more inbound links to your site as early as today!

 What is Social Bookmarking and Why Should You Care?

By Nicolaas Theron
What is social bookmarking? Well, it is a process by which internet users may share or search web pages that other people have bookmarked. People who participate save their bookmarks online and may then choose to share these web pages with other users.

You may choose whether to share your bookmarks with the general public or you may choose to limit access to them. You can therefore keep your bookmarks private and share them only with friends and family but not with strangers. People may view bookmarks by browsing through them via category or simply at random.

You may have a website of your own that you would like to share with others. You might run a blog that needs more attention from internet users. You can decide to submit your web site or blog to numerous social bookmarking sites. In this way, your web site bookmark will be listed at these sites and people may see it and decide to pay a visit. You can enter your own unique description and keywords into the submission forms.

How can social bookmarking help you? Is it merely another time wasting chore? Well, many people are excited about the potential of sharing your web site or blog with others.

First, you can generate a lot of unique incoming links to your web site. If you bookmark your site at ten different social bookmarking sites, you can get 10 unique incoming links pointing to your web site. However, keep in mind that you should not spam these sites with hundreds of bookmarks of your own site or blog.

Second, you can generate more search results in the major search engines. This means that your site is more often displayed in search results and the visibility of your site increases accordingly.

Third, this leads to more people visiting your web site or blog and therefore your traffic increases.

You can submit your most popular pages or blog posts so that their popularity can increase even more. This may also give these pages or posts a higher search engine ranking. Remember not to submit too many of the same pages to the same social bookmarking site. They may start to ignore your bookmarks if you abuse your bookmarking account.

You can bookmark a few of your favorite web sites every day. Mix at least one of your own pages or blog posts within each batch. This will make your own bookmarks look natural.

You can enter your keywords related to each page you submit as tags. Use general keywords as well as longer key phrases to describe each bookmark. This will let users know what a page is about.

Social bookmarking can be a useful free tool to increase your web site ranking and to send more visitors your way. Use it in moderation and you might harvest some good results.

Common Technical Questions

Why would I want to join the Adlandpro Networking Community?

The Networking Community is a business community of entrepreneurs and business people like you. The email messages you receive are about the equivalent of if you were to go to a trade or business show and handing out your business card, there may be some people that are interested in your product and you may be interested in theirs, however this is not the real strength of the community. 

One of the biggest strengths is the feedback and advice you can get from members who are doing what you're doing and can offer you assistance. Creating friends throughout the community can help you with feedback on your ads, prospective products/service and/or website information. They can also provide insight in areas of where you can promote the kind of product or service you have, promotional ideas, promotional exchanges, joint promotions etc... 

It is also a place for anyone with minimal experience in the industry to get a heads up of what to watch for. The idea of the Community is not to just sell to other members (although there are members who do buy from other members) but get the type of feedback and assistance that can be valuable for anyone who is marketing on the internet and create success for both you and members that are your friends.

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