One of the highlights of the opening day of the Salt Lake City Home Business Summit was the Top Partners Check Ceremony. This is where My Online Business Empire (MOBE) recognize their top partners, and present them a big check for their hard work.

The checks represent how much commissions the partners made with the company since joining. It’s always fun to see how much everyone is making. It also serves as a source of motivation, and proves to new partners that the business works. There were a lot of people receiving checks.

I Received a Check for $1,079,592.06

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Two months ago, at the Home Business Summit in San Francisco, my check amount was for $854,531.11. That figure has now increased to $1,079,592.06. What does this mean?

It Means I Made $225,060.95 with MOBE In Two Months

My rate of growth with MOBE has been nothing short of explosive. It took me six month to make my first $100,000 with MOBE. Now, I beat that in less than a month. Not only is MOBE making me over $100,000 every month, I got a free Mercedes-Benz SL550 to boot!

Secure Affiliate Marketing

If you are new to the PPC game, knowing where to start is sometimes the most daunting or overwhelming stage of the game! We have compiled a list of basic steps to follow to help drive your campaign!

Firstly, target your campaign. Target to a geographical area – for example, if you are a store located in San Diego California, you will want your ad campaign to focus on the surrounding areas more than San Francisco, or out of state. You want to insure that you are reaching people that are within a geographical range that is accessible to your storefront. Along with the geographical targeting, you want to create a target audience as well, which will help you determine sites you want to advertise on as well.

Second, use Google analytics. By tracking which keywords are working, which ads are working, etc. Google analytics is a great way to determine which ads are working and which copy is working – this can help you eliminate ads that are wasting your efforts, and help increase the ads that are working.

Third, use negative keywords. Surprising to many people, negative keywords can be just as important as exact keywords. Negative keywords are ones that specify locations where you do not want your ad to appear. For example, if you are a pet supply store, but do not have products for large animals, you may want to include words like “horse” in your negative keyword program so that people are not being sent to your site inappropriately.

Lastly comes the importance of your landing page. Your ads and your landing pages need to have a flow that works for customers. When your landing page has little or nothing to do with the ad copy, your quality score is negatively affected. Make sure that the copy of the landing page matches the copy of the ad – it does not need to match exactly, but the information needs to be relevant and easily accessible to those that click through the ad.

By following these few easy steps, you can increase the traffic through your ads and make sure that the traffic you are receiving is qualified and will be giving you the return on your advertising!

Why do you blog in the first place?

Most bloggers find that it’s really hard to build a profitable blog, drive all the traffic needed as well as make money at the same time. If that’s your concern, I’m here to tell you something more powerful you’ve been neglecting.

The truth is we all have personal engagements, new projects and family to attend to. You can’t possibly achieve overnight result. And you can’t achieve all your goals all at once. So rest your mind and do what other people have been neglecting.

If you do this one thing, you’ll definitely experience a surge in targeted traffic, get loyal readers to your blog, increase in sales of your products and become the inspiration of your first time reader.

Taking the first step

wordpress-speed

What is it like the first time you visit a website? Can you still recall what you liked about that website or blog? I’m sure you’ve forgotten why you came to this blog in the first place.

You’re beginning to justify your loyalty to the value of content and that you always feel at home each time you come here or any of your favorite blogs.

Instead of hosting your website in one location, how about distributing your heavy files and images across multiple servers around the world?

Do you know that good content isn’t the first thing that makes a reader stay and motivated? It’s speed. If I come to your blog and click to read your post, only to stay glued waiting for it to load – I’ll be discouraged.

I may not leave right away if the title of your article looks good, but you’ve failed in meeting my expectation – creating the first impression.

I can gladly go out there and tell other people how good your content is, but how horrible your load time is. Of course you didn’t ask me to tell others about my experience, but I chose to. Because it’s my job, your job is to give me a reason to do it.

Increasing your blog speed

There are several ways to increase the speed of your blog, so that it can load quickly, serve the reader what they want as though you were right there in person.

Some people have done the common tweaks such as uninstalling wordpress plugins and using premium themes that come with no bugs and malware as well as other unwanted scripts.

The problem?

Every plugin you delete is still on your database or should I say your hosting server. For most of us, when we start using a new theme, the one there before would simply be replaced as you activate the new one. But you didn’t delete it. Even if you did, it’s still there.

It’s like deleting a file on your PC and you forget it’s inside the recycle bin. If you use Windows operating system, you should be familiar with that.

What you really need as a blogger isn’t very many plugins, or a constant tweak of your themes because it can demean your credibility. Your readers would one day get angry with you for confusing them.

This is serious because I’ve visited a popular blog only to find that the theme had completely changed and when I stumbled on it again in less than 3-months, a new theme was right there – activated and looking scary. I quickly looked through my Evernote where I save domain name URLS of my favourite blogs. There it was…

Do you know that if your wordpress blog is hosted in United States for instance, but your readers are coming majorly from UK and other European nations that this can slow down your blog?

Yes, you need a server that’s closer to your target audience. That’s why the traditional means of increasing website speed isn’t acceptable. There is a limit to how fast your wordpress website can be.

Here’s what you must do:

Use a Reliable CDN

CDN is the acronym for Content Delivery Network or Content Distribution Network. The technology is very useful for anyone who uses wordpress as his content management tool.

Here’s what CDN does: When someone loads and visits your website/blog, CDN will instantly find the closest server to you in their diversified server networks and deliver your content from there.

In other words, if a reader loads your blog from China, a CDN will serve him/her your blog and all its content from a server right there in China or nearby. No, your reader isn’t going to know what’s happening at the back. What they are after is to find what they’re looking for as quickly as possible. That is how you create the first impression.

If you really want to take your blogging experience to the next level, stop tweaking your themes right now.
You’re indirectly chasing your readers away and remember it’s more difficult to get a new reader, and very easy to persuade loyal readers. Take advantage of what you’ve – speed up your blog using a CDN today.

Improve your site speed with a CDN

Maybe you’re trying to figure out how a CDN can serve end-users your content when you’re not there. How in the world is that going to happen? Well, when you start using a CDN provider, the first thing you’ll do is to create a pull zone.

Pull zone?

Yes. You need to set this up, so that a CDN can seamlessly deliver content to your readers without you having to upload anything. I mean you don’t have to upload a pin from your wordpress blog. It’s that simple.

I think I should tell you this…

I own a handful niche sites promoting several health products. At a time, I read from a blog that a fast loading website can increase your organic traffic. Guess what? That’s the truth.

When I started delivering content (review articles) using a CDN, Google on their own deemed my websites friendly with their algorithm. And today, I get about 340+ high quality visitors to each of my niche sites. Before I started using a CDN, my daily hits from Google ranged from 46 – 83 but my story is changed now.

You’ll use the W3Total Cache to integrate and install CDN. You should download it for free. This would give you an added benefit in terms of speed and performance.

And most essentially, you need to guard your wordpress blog against hackers and external threats. CDN makes it possible for you to back up your files and retrieve them whenever you want. This is also made possible because you’ve set up a pull zone.

And how long does it take to do that? You’ll be done in less than 30 seconds or 1 minute, depending on your local internet speed. Isn’t that wonderful?

My final words to you

Do you know that Blogging goes beyond waking up every morning and hitting hard on your keyboard? There are priceless benefits, and over and over again, young millionaires emerge who generate decent income blogging.
That blog of yours has the potential to make you rich. Period!

The freedom it brings, the joy and the hope that unforeseen recession and economic crises can’t drown your business is heavenly. What do you think?

Take baby steps today. Ideally, find out the speed of your wordpress blog right now using Pingdom. Afterwards, sign up with http://maxcdn.com/john-chow to quickly speed up your site within 2 hours.

As usual, I’d like to know what you gained from this post. Have you used a CDN before? Share your thoughts in the comment box below. See you ahead!

Living the Dot Com Lifestyle is not about fast cars, big houses, or exotic vacations. It’s not even about making a ton of money. While all those elements are part of the Dot Com Lifestyle, the true meaning is freedom. The freedom to do whatever you want, and not have to worry about time or money.

Last night, Sally told me that she wanted to have a daddy daughter day at SeaWorld. Normally, most dads would be working on a Tuesday, and can’t accommodate such a request. But when you live the Dot Com Lifestyle, everyday is a whatever day you want it to be. And if Sally wants to spend a whole day with me, then that’s what she is going to get. So, we gassed up the Mercedes-Benz, and blasted down to San Diego.

The great thing about going to SeaWorld on a Tuesday is it’s not very busy. There’s virtually no line ups and getting a good seat at any of the shows is no problem. Sally was able to feed the sea lions and the stingrays. She also watched Sea Lions Live (SLL) twice. That’s her favorite show at SeaWorld.

Daddy Daughter Date Night At The Corvette Diner

After SeaWorld, we went over to the Corvette Diner for dinner. This is one of the most kid-friendly restaurants in San Diego. Tuesdays is Daddy Daughter Date Night. This is the first time we’ve been to the Corvette Diner. I chose it because Sally and I love Corvettes. Our waiter made a Chevy Bow-tie out of straws, and tied it to Sally’s hair.

Coming Home To Over $25,000

When we finally got home from one of the best daddy daughter days ever, I got on my comp to check my stats, and found that while I was out spending quality time with my daughter, the online business models I set in place had generated over $25,000 in sales.

While $25K in a day isn’t a record (my biggest single day was $80K), it does rank as one of the highest quality days, and demonstrates what the Dot Com Lifestyle is all about.

If you want to know the step-by-step on how I can spend an entire day playing with my daughter, and then come home to over $25,000, then you need to download my new eBook, the Ultimate Online Profit Model. The eBook is free, and details the business models I use to make six-figure monthly income online, and live the Dot Com Lifestyle.

An inbound link is simply a link back to your website.

I’m talking about powerful links, which can boost your search engine rankings.

Since I launched my content marketing business, I’ve worked with clients who wanted instant results. They wanted me to perform the magic. It doesn’t work that way.

Of course there is nothing wrong with “quick results” only that it does not stay.

In other words, if you get your links from somewhere secretive and your rankings skyrocket, you stand a chance of losing your ranking positions as quickly as you got them.

inbound-links

That is not to say that everyone who acquired wrong links will lose it. It just means that long term approach to building inbound links is the ultimate strategy. You and I know that Google is out, with a sharpened knife ready to slice any website that has played pranks in the past and those publishers who have plans to trick the spider.

Having said that, I think you might be making a very BIG mistake if you think getting inbound links is difficult. No, it’s as simple as installing your wordpress blog and adding a new post. If you can do that, then you can use this strategy to get inbound links.

Twisted Guest Blogging

I bet you haven’t heard of “twisted guest blogging” before. But you definitely know about guest blogging and writing content for other blogs, right? The strategy is somewhat the same but the results would overwhelm you.

With my guest blogging style, you’ll be using ONE BIG stone to KILL many Birds.

Twisted guest blogging will help you get your guest post published at a particular blog, and before you know it, your website URL will be everywhere on the web, sucking in targeted traffic and inbound links.
Why is this so? It’s because you did the right thing. “Let me in, I can’t wait to know about this…”

Find an active blog with a community

When I say active blog, I mean a blog that receives a lot of comment and social shares each time a post goes live. You might have come across such sites. In fact, the criterion to look for is 100 twitter and Facebook shares (100 each will do).

Comments may not be the right metric for this guest blogging approach, but social signals. So once you’ve researched your blogs that falls within this category, you’re good to go.

The purpose of this is for you to send a guest post to the active blog, and within 7 days, it’ll be shared on twitter, facebook and other portals. Then from those active portals, the media can pick it up and curate it on their business and news related websites.

If you’ve been guest blogging everywhere and getting no tangible results, then it could be possible you’ve been wasting your content which I presume is high quality. It’s time to get smarter.

Make sure the social fans are active

There is no better way to gauge the quality and activity of your twitter, facebook fans than the action they take each time you try to engage them. I don’t care how many people you’ve following you, if they don’t click your links or share your content, you’re wasting time.

Follow the same approach for the blog you’ll be sending your article to. Review the popular posts and see how many social shares they have amassed.

The most important thing when you’re running an online business is conversion. If it’s not converting, then you’re not doing the right thing.

Before you send a valuable guest post to any blog, ensure the social media activity is high. Your guest post should be shared with the world so that you can get inbound links not just from the blog but from other networks that pass higher link value to you.

Google is still passionate about websites that get natural and trustworthy inbound links.

You’re not going to be pleading with your readers to share your content or write a comment. And you’re supposed to beg the active community to share your content. It’s there nature. They love to do it for their leader (blog owner).

They’ll do the same thing for you. If your content is superb and solution-driven, they’d be persuaded to comment.

Conclusion

Guest blogging could be a total waste of time if you cast your bread on many dirty waters. It’s much more profitable to take your time and research the blog to determine its engagement. How popular the site is and the amount of traffic it generates on a daily basis.

Knowing these metrics would help you gain several inbound links from just a single guest post that touched lives around the Web World.

Remember, all links are NOT created equal. For instance, a single inbound link (backlink) from CNN that’s do-follow will be more valuable to Google than 5 links from an unworthy website.

Do you still write guest posts? Share your experience and make it lively. You’re the best person the world has been waiting for. See you at the top!
