How to Manage Your Search Engine Optimization

In Buddhist philosophy, the lotus flower carries much symbolic significance. The Buddha is oftentimes depicted as sitting on top of a lotus flower, showing us that a thing of beauty can rise above the dirtiest of waters. The lotus also blooms and sheds its seeds at the same time, demonstrating that it is self-sufficient and complete. This illustrates the concepts of unity and peace.

As strange as this may sound, these concepts can also apply to the world of search engine optimization. Ideally, you too want to be self-sufficient in your own endeavors as well and LotusJump is designed to improve your website rankings in search engines without the aid of expensive SEO experts and consultants. Does it deliver? Let’s go through this review and find out.

SEO Tasks Made Easy with LotusJump

Getting your website to rise in the rankings of search engines can be a challenging and delicate process, especially when you don’t know where to start. LotusJump can act as a road map, leading you down the right paths even if you have no prior SEO knowledge.

You can think of LotusJump as an optimized and automatic “to do list” for the search engine optimization of your website. It doesn’t complete the tasks for you, but it does tell you what tasks you should be doing. Check out the short video or long video for a LotusJump demo.

This is a minor quibble, but one that should probably be addressed. The main page of the LotusJump SEO software says that it will “improve your website rankings in Google, Yahoo and MSN.” They should switch “MSN” for “Bing,” since that is Microsoft’s new search engine.

Identifying Optimization Opportunities

The first thing you’ll need to do is enter the information for the website that you would like to see search engine optimized. This involves entering your domain and the keywords that you would like to target. After that, LotusJump will automatically populate your task list.

lotus-tasks

These tasks are meant to provide an incremental advantage to get your website a better ranking in the search engines. For example, it may tell you to create a lens in Squidoo, submit your blog to a certain directory, or post a comment on a related blog.

Every day, the LotusJump algorithm will scour the web for these optimization opportunities, directing you toward relevant blog posts on which to leave comments, Q&A opportunities at Yahoo! Answers, and other similar possibilities.

Interestingly, the demo account that was set up for the purposes of this review was pre-populated with “jonchow.com” as the domain. When I went to change it to the correct domain, all of the associated tasks disappeared. Is this to prevent people from optimizing more than one domain while only paying the single domain price? Perhaps.

The Do-It-Yourself Approach

lotus-report

Need that little pat on the back or that little dash of encouragement along the way? LotusJump also comes with a comprehensive set of statistics. These show you the tasks that you have completed within a defined time period.

This way, you may see that you are focusing too much on social profiles and article submissions and not spending enough time on generating buzz and addressing competitive linking.

Basic, Pro, and Affiliates

LotusJump is currently being offered in two packages. The Basic monthly plan lets you work on a single domain and supply up to three keywords. You will be given access to seven types of SEO tasks.

lotus-price

The more expensive Pro plan is still a single domain, but the keyword count is bumped up to ten and the number of tasks is also increased. The main difference is that you can add extra domains for $19/month each and extra keywords for $10 per five additional keywords.

Both of these plans are definitely cheaper than hiring an SEO professional to handle your search engine optimization on your behalf, but you still have to put in the work when it comes to LotusJump. Those tasks won’t complete themselves.

How can you recoup some of these costs? Sign up for the LotusJump affiliate program. You earn the first month in commission for each new LotusJump member that you refer.

  1. Sounds like a cool product will have to take a closer look
    thanks 🙂

    John Sullivan’s last blog post: TOP ten traffic sources to this blog

    1. If you want to improve your rankings on google, yahoo or msn (now bing) you need to do the following tasks:

      1.- Get high quality backlinks.
      2.- Post interesting and original content.
      3.- Post frequently very day (5 to 10 posts per day).
      4.- Make a clear and clean meta tags: name, description, keywords.
      5.- Be patient, websites (old websites) with more years have best rankings than others.
      6.- Ping the posts of your blog every day.

      If you follow all these tasks every day you will have better rankings on search engines and improve your alexa ranking too.

        5 to 10 posts a day? That sounds like alot.

        fas’s last blog post: Easy Ways To Earn Money From Google

      2. Five to ten post a day seems to be a lot of works to do. Specially that you need to write them originally. Perhaps one solution is to hire five writers whom can write original articles for your blog.

        “#6 – Ping your site …”
        Can u please explain what this means and how it is done?

        Thanks.

    2. I agree with you John,
      I Need it, I need it, I need it, as i need to restore my dignity back from big daddy Google.

  2. Lee Ka Hoong says:

    $24 per month for a basic plan would be quite reasonable and affordable, I’m going to take a look on this. Thanks for telling us about this John!

    1. The question is that could they really deliver.

      Ridiculous blogger’s last blog post: Would you upgrade your blog to WordPress 2.8.2?

      1. seems they know what they are doing, i have no doubt about it.

    2. Jayce says:

  3. This is really cute. I’m seriously considering signing up for it then outsourcing the actual task-completion component.

    For a beginner this is a very good package since it will teach them SEO and they can apply it to their other websites.

  5. skill-guru says:

    I hope google does not penalize for this

  6. My constant problem is trust. When I have the money I am afraid of being scammed and when I don’t have the money (like now) I can’t afford it!

    I like the concept though and I am sure that there are a lot of bloggers (like) me who should be paying more attention to SEO.

    Not John Chow’s last blog post: McLinky’s Blog Hop: Brazilian Apple Pie

    1. Specially now as John Chow has been re included in Google Index and you are no where now when people search about him.

      1. SEO Forum says:

        Look again, notjohnchow.com is number five or six in Google when searching John Chow.

  7. I do not own any blog, I think it is time to start after reading this great article.

  20. futurich says:

    Why would Google penalize you for building links and creating content that point to your site? There is no violation in doing that – they just don’t like it if you are paying people for links.

    Looks like a solid option will check it out further

  24. Boy this one is going to kill the SEO business if it get success. I would like to know whether they will assigned any person for our orders who will take care of all our queries and replies.

    Would like to know more about this … so just going to their websites.

  25. louise says:

    Does anyone know whether Bing will be operating the same principle as google? Ive looked at their search engine and I like it (especially how you can hover over text without actually going to the website) but my site is no-where currently on key words optimised for Google. It could be that they havent sorted all of this yet or it could mean that theyre operating a completely different method. ANyone know?

    I read somewhere that they want you to have keywords in the URL – which seems really stupid to me

    Great blog BTW
    Louise

  26. Rate me says:

    Thanks John, will check this out..

  27. Make money says:

    In my opinion, it would be much better is they had a proper SEO solution. My SEO management is an Excel file, lol. Trust me, it works great!

  28. Custom Essay says:

    24.9 is not expensive, but still, can we get one most trial? There should be a trial program, it is a new software. I do wanna try 🙂

    Mairsh

  29. They’re definitely cheaper than hiring an SEO alright, but i do not know of many people that hire SEOs, who like to work. This really seems to be a great tool from what you have showed us, if i were to do some quick SEO for a price, i would definitely come to this!
