The Second Biggest Mistake I
See Website Owners Making And
How To Fix It...
The second biggest mistake I see friends and clients making with their websites is not finding enough quality link partners.
Finding quality incoming links is growing in importance as search engines try to sort out the good sites from the
Spam and rubbish that's plaguing the web today.
Before we go on, please listen to this short audio message -
It's only a matter of time before Google, Yahoo and the rest do something to remove the billions of
Spam pages created by products
such as Directory Generator and Traffic Equalizer, in fact it's already started and will continue to gather pace.
The fact that these products works is obvious - everywhere you go on the web you find these bulk
Spam pages ranking well for all
sorts of search terms.
They usually offer no content, they are just a collection of Google Adsense ads that people hope you'll click on to generate some passive
The problem is, they don't provide any value to the web. They are just Spam, and the sooner they are eliminated, the better as far
as many of us are concerned.
I feel that the best way for Google and the others to quickly and easily find and remove these pages will be to look at incoming links
and even more heavily weight sites with lots of quality, diverse inks and de-rate sites with no incoming links.
When you think about it, it's obvious that nobody's going to link to a site whose only content is a re-hashed article and/or some Google ads.
These sites are easy to spot using Google's technology and will be quickly found and de-listed. If your site doesn't have incoming links,
you could be caught up in this and penalized along with the bad sites.
The message is clear - get incoming links quickly from quality websites.
How do you do this?
A good place to start is to read Ken's eBook, Make Your Links
You can download Ken's Make Your Links Work eBook here
While you're there, register for Sitesell's Value Exchange if you
already have a website. You'll find quality link partners just waiting to link with you (if you have a worthwhile website, of
The other great way of getting lots of incoming links is to write short articles and submit them to article directories and ezine
Not only do you get a good incoming link from the Article Directory, you get additional links coming to your website when other webmasters
take your article from the directory and put it on their website.
Over time, you can generate thousands of incoming links to your site as the viral effect takes hold.
People see your article, take it and use it. Other people read it, like it, and put it on their own site. The effect can be huge if you
write short, quality articles that offer great content to your readers.
Here's a list of some of the top article directories, although there are many more -
GoArticles.com - http://www.goarticles.com
EzineArticles.com - http://www.ezinearticles.com
Xongoo.com - http://www.xongoo.com/submit.html
IdeaMarketers.com - http://www.ideamarketers.com

AuthorConnection.com - http://www.authorconnection.com
ExpertArticles.com - http://www.expertarticles.com/DesktopDefault.aspx
HowToAdvice.com - http://www.howtoadvice.com
Now submitting to all of these Directories manually is fine, but it's a huge
drain on your time. I use ArticleMarketer.com
to automatically to thousands of editors who are actively looking for fresh
Your time is much better spent writing new content than sitting at your
computer manually submitting articles, especially when you can you can outsource
it so inexpensively.

And before we finish up today, I'd like to share another SBI success story on
This one looks at how a mom broke free and built her own business from home
doing something she loves...as told by her daughter...
If you have a fast Internet connection, please take a few minutes to watch and listen to
Carla's story by clicking on
the Play button on the video below...
If you are on dial up, the video could take a while to load, sorry...
You too can do what Carla has done with SBI. All you need are Solo Build It
and the B&M (Brain and Motivation) to succeed...
And did you have a chance to take a look at the
I Love SBI site I mentioned yesterday. There are so many other great stories of
people grabbing SBI and building great businesses.
I love Elad's other video as well (OK, the second one is a bit corny with the
chook and all after yesterday's 'normal' one) but his results sure aren't.
If you didn't go and watch all of these great videos (some funny, some
serious, all inspirational) then grab a coffee (or something a little stronger
:-) and check it out now.
It will be the most valuable half hour you'll spend this week...
I hope this helps you get your articles out there you and start to generate lots of new visitors and incoming links to your website.
That's all for today,
P.S. I'd like to share this note I
received the other day from one of my coaching students -
Long time no email so I thought I would touch base today, exactly 3 months to the day since my site went
I am happy and proud to say that I am now in the black from commissions on
affiliate sales from my SBI website!
When I started this project that was my goal for the whole first year, to make enough to pay for my SBI membership.
Now that I have reached and exceeded that goal, I’m excited to continue on with my brain full of ideas for the site.
I’m plugging along, but obviously wish I had more time to devote to it.
And I’m glad I bought SBI through you. You’ve been a great help to me since I started.
I like your videos and your updated FAQ page. Very informative stuff.
Thanks for all your help,
Now Darrin's experience isn't typical and most people take longer than this
to get really going when they first buy SBI (or start any business for that
matter), but it shows what can be done if you find a profitable niche and put
your mind to it.
If you would like personal coaching and support in all areas of setting up
your new SBI site like Darrin is so thankful for, visit
this page for all the details of how we can work together...
