Editor's Comments 

Barry Scott -Digest Editor

What makes someone click on my ad(s)? I hear this everyday and justifiably so, every one wants success. Unfortunately some assume that if there ad is not getting clicked on, the website they are advertising on is doing something wrong. Now I know this is going to sound biased but it is very probable it's not the website (unless of course the site is down) but the ad(s) or the person responsible for the ads has to bare the brunt of this burden.

Why not the site? Every website that receives steady traffic is a market, but a unique market and this means that there is a steady flow of visitors coming through daily. The visitors to each site are not the same visitors on every site so all your ads cannot be the same. If the ad is not attracting the visitors attention on the site to click on, is that the website's fault? Should they tell their viewer's to click on the ad? Of course not.

Anywhere there is a market there are possible sales, but you have to develop your ads constantly to chase the buyers down in that market. The same ads will not work in every website, so you have to develop different ads for each site you advertise on to find the buyers because each website is a unique market.    

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

Sincerely, Barry Scott Editor

SEO Link Building Service Advantages and Disadvantages

By I. Funa
Every webmaster doing search engine optimization knows the importance of link building. Links are a measure of website popularity and are important for human visitors and especially for search engines. Most search engine algorithms use links and links parameters to calculate relevance of particular web page. Links are also an essential part of the Page Rank algorithm used by Google. But it is not just the number of links that counts. There are few link parameters that should be taken into account when evaluating links and their value.

The first important parameter is anchor text. This is the text that actually links to your page. This text tells to everybody what your page is about. Anchor text is heavily used by search engines for additional clues about the content on your page. Therefore it makes sense to use meaningful and relevant anchor texts that describe the content on the target page. Usually the main keyword is used to create a relevant back link to the target page. But you should never use only one word phrase to create links. Use various combination, let them look natural. Unfortunately, you don't have control over what text will other webmasters use to create link to your site. But this is not so bad, you have a link and wide variety of anchor texts is welcome.

The second important parameter is the no follow attribute. It marks links that should not be followed or taken into account by search engines. This means that such links are almost useless for SEO. The situation is not so bad because every link counts and even no follow links are needed to make the back link structure look natural. Of course, you should put more effort and time to get normal, do follow links, but never discard any opportunity to get a back link regardless of its type.

The page where the link is located is also important. If the page content is related to the content of your page then the link is more relevant and has more value. The page relevance or authority (e.g. the Page Rank value) plays also an important role in the link value. Links on high authority pages transfer the authority from the source page to the target page.

Link building services are a solution when you don't have time or possibility to create links to your page, or when you have many websites that need off-page optimization. So the advantage of using such services is that they will create many links to your websites and if done properly you will be positioned higher in search results.

However, there are also some disadvantages in using link building services. You have no or little control over the off-page optimization process. If the links are created too fast or with similar anchor texts then some search engines will find this as unnatural and your site may be penalized with drop in ranking positions. Also the ratio between normal and nofollow links should not point to anything suspicious. With some services you may get many links from various link directories, but such links have little value. Such links are worth significantly less than links on pages with similar content.

For example, for the http://top10juicers.com/ website the most valuable links would be on pages about juices, juicers, drinks, food or healthy diets.

The real value of link building service is when you can get many good links from high authority relevant pages. For few websites this can be probably done by yourself but for more or larger websites link building service may be a good idea.

 How Internet Forums Benefit You

By Benjy Marks
If you are interested in making money online then you have probably taken notice of the many Internet forums found on this particular subject. They are sites which attract people with similar interests together to discuss making money on the Internet. How to go about it, which programs they promote, how they promote them, etc. The content is infinite and increases with each site you come across.

Are they worth getting involved in? Can they be a fundamental tool which could help you establish an online business or are they simply a lot of people chatting back and forth with one another?

It really just depends on which forum you visit. Some are very popular, while others barely make any impression at all. There is no question that some forums contain lots of good information and advice but it can take a very long time to separate the good from the bad with so much information within.

It's said that if someone wants to find out what others think about a certain subject they should visit a forum of that nature to see what people are saying. This pertains just as much to Internet forums on marketing as it does to anything else. The things about these particular Internet forums are that they tend to have a lot of members who have some knowledge of online marketing already.

Now in some cases these people can be honest and helpful about the information they are sharing, but sometimes they seem to have just one thing on their agenda, promotion. There is normally a designated part on each of these marketing Internet forums that allow for self promotion, not everybody plays by the rules. When trying to find out information about a particular opportunity it is sometimes hard to tell whether people are giving it good reviews because it is really a good opportunity, or because they are promoting it themselves and trying to get sign-ups through their own affiliate link.

There are many benefits to using Internet forums as long as you utilize the information and knowledge instead of constantly reading the forum but putting nothing into action. You can use these forums can help you to develop several new skills including web design, SEO basics, affiliate marketing, and basically how to earn money online. If you already have a website you can learn new ways to improve it, bring traffic to it, and how to make money off of the service or products that you are selling.

There are many Internet forums that can benefit you and your company in helping to expand and earn you more money in the long run. Just don't get tied up in one area so you don't have the chance to learn other things but also remember to not over do it. It's easier to learn new things if you are patient and take the time to practice what you have learned.

Common Technical Questions

I had purchased Traffic Exchange/Impression credits and they ran out and now it shows me as having negative credits, am I obligated to pay for those?

No. Our system for both the Traffic Exchange and the Impressions (Banner/Text) display will always overrun and produce a negative credit balance. The reason is that when the system is aware that you account is getting low on credits or you are at a level where it will get ready to stop, but it cannot account for the views that are in the queue as traffic to our site fluctuates on a daily basis.

So your Ad/Banner may be set up to run in the next few minutes and because we are dealing with 1000s of displays per hour the database cannot account for the credits that will be displayed in queue and will run regardless of the credit balance. Therefore the TE and Impressions will always run into the negative which works to the member's advantage as the member is not accountable for overdrawn credits.
