16 Stats to Help Reboot Strategy for the rest of the year.

It’s already the end of July and what a great year we have had here at makingbigcashonline.com .Thanks readers I love ya!

Have you heard? About me

I have  worked online for 5 years off and on doing affiliate marketing but finally took the big leap full-time in January.

I secured a couple clients with my social media management service. So I have been very busy doing that five hours a day and concentrating on this blog the other five. Yep 10 hours a day

Today I’m going to blog about what’s happening in the blogosphere. I will call it “16 Stats to Help Reboot Strategy for the rest of the year”

The art of blogging and the use of social media are showing no signs of slowing down as the world embraces the power and freedom experienced online.

To help us understand what’s really happening in 2016 there are a few kind hardworking people who spend the time and money to do the research to find out who’s blogging how,when and why.

Thanks to them I’m able to compile this post and reveal some very interesting facts about blogging and social media and their impact.

Let me help YOU with Quality comments & wallet- grabbing content.

So here are some incredible statistics that show what’s really happening in the blogosphere in 2016.

1.Blogs have been rated as the 5th most trusted source for accurate online information. In the early days,blogs weren’t taken very seriously. However in 2016 they are viewed as one of the most valuable and credible sources of information.

Read my Top post that went viral  “17 Easy Ways to Monetize Your Blog.”

2.Blog articles with images get 94% more views. Including an image with your blog post used to be a recommendation. In 2016 it’s mandatory and the 94% proves why.

3.The average word count of top-ranking content in Google is between 1,140 –1,285 words.

Blogging continues to get more competitive and Google favors in-depth content that provides a ton of value over short blog post that used to be normal.

4.Google gets over 100 billion searches a month more than half of those searches are from mobile devices.

Guys to leave the best impression on people,your website and blog needs to be more-mobile friendly,because mobile use is only going to increase.

5.More bloggers reported publishing on a daily basis in 2015,compared to 2014,the majority of bloggers (66%) are still publishing less than daily but more than monthly.

Daily blogging isn’t ideal for all businesses but you should be publishing content weekly to maximize your potential.

Publishing more frequently my friends will not only boost your traffic but be a huge difference maker.

6.Only 6% of bloggers publish the majority of their original content as guest posts.

You want your brand’s website to be the central or most important hub for all your marketing efforts.

Guys don’t try to build somebody else’s brand up  before your own ,bloggers are increasing their use of paid ads (93% over the past year) to drive traffic to their posts.

Paid promotions get more eyes on your content in a short amount of time. (more eyes =more money).

8.Companies who blog receive 97%  more links to their website.

Everytime an authority website links to a blog post your entire website reaps SEO benefits. Attracting links guys is much easier with high quality content.

9.94% of people who share posts to do because they think it might be helpful to others. If your blog content isn’t helpful guys don’t be surprised if it doesn’t get shared.

Social Media Should Be a Huge Part of your Strategy.

10.Facebook is still No.1 despite what you may have heard. Facebook has 1.65 billion monthly active users and 1.09 billion daily users.

It spans generations —83% of parents with a teen are friends with their child on Facebook. 50 million businesses use Facebook pages. Facebook is  the most used app.

11.Twitter has 310 million monthly active users. Twitter is a place to interact with brands. 42% of users learn about products and services via Twitter.

12.Instagram users are 2.5 times more likely to click on ads than users on other social media platforms.

13.Linked In has 433 million users in more than 200 countries.

More than 128 million users in the US. 49% of key decision makers are on Linked In. So this is the platform where the influencers hang out and can be very profitable.

14.Snapchat has over 100 million daily active users and it’s still growing. It is the second most-used social network after Facebook. In Jaffray’s spring 2016 Taking Stock with Teens survey.

28 percent of teen’s ranked Snapchat as the most important social network. I know this firsthand all my 13 nieces and nephews use is Snapchat.

15.You Tube statistics

You Tube has over 1 billion users. 80% of users are outside the U.S. Almost 1/3 of all people on the internet are You Tube users.

You Tube reachs more 18 to 49 year olds than any cable network.

5 ” Boss” Traits to Emulate from Donald Trump !

  • donald_duck

Since June 16,when Donald Trump announced his candidacy for the presidency he has commanded the most attention.

The billionaire from Queens,Ny has garnered the lion’s share of the headlines and been a powerful force in the race.

Even though I haven’t decided who I will be voting for in the presidential election (which one is the lessor of the 2 evils) Love him or hate him.

Have you heard? About me

Donald Trump has definitely  got  traits that once incorporated,would enhance my business. That’s  why I’m writing this post “5 Boss Traits to Emulate from Donald Trump”

Read one of my viral post

 

1. Be Yourself

Donald Trump has a very bold  personality and can  sometimes be outright arrogant. He is not changing the personality that people expect from him just because he is a candidate for president. He is Donald all the way.

Do you know who you are?

  • Become more aware of your thoughts.
  • Follow your Intuition.

If it’s not broke don’t fix it

Let me help elevate your  Social Media

 

2.Be Courageous

Nothing has changed during the presidential campaign. Donald Trump seems to say what he wants when he wants. He speaks his mind and if you don’t like it “too bad”

So how can you be courageous like Donald Trump?

  • Always say what you want to say.
  • Do not give excuses.
  • Don’t let people control you.

 

3.Know Your Audience

Donald Trump has been speaking to sold out arenas all over the country.

That’s because he’s going to locations where his support is strong and decisive. Donald Trump knows his core audience and does a great  job keeping them engaged.

Donald Trump doesn’t care if  you love him or hate him. He’s speaking to a very select group of voters who believe in him and will support him.

If you have a huge following on social media you want to keep them engaged with great content find out their problems and present solutions to them.

You have to know your audience and have answers to their concerns in a relevant way.

Get to know me the Author   and like my  Facebook page.

 

4. Be Genuine

When you bring up the name Donald Trump there’s usually a strong reaction,they either love him or hate him. You will rarely find someone in the middle.

Donald Trump has found a way to get people on either end of the spectrum. It makes it easier to go where you are celebrated when you know your fans are hardcore fans.

If someone doesn’t like your brand. Keep the haters away and cater to  the people that love your brand. In anything you do there will be people who don’t like you. Stay authentic   and be genuine because you are causing real emotion.

 

5.Have Swagger or Attitude

My Backlink Approach

Green_dart_hitting_target

For the last 3 weeks , I have been getting  bombarded with the same question from a lot of my readers.

Most of you guys asked, me what is my backlink  strategy? and most of  you suggested I write more post about backlinking. So  today  let’s roll.

According to Brian Dean of  Backlinko  one of the top SEO  influencers 85% of a website’s search engine ranking  position (SERP) is quality incoming links (backlinks) from other sites.

Of course backlinks from high Page Rank (PR) sites are desired more than  the low PR sites.

For my newbies…..What is a Backlink?

A backlink is when a web page links to another site using a hyperlink. They are usually colored blue,and when you click on them it opens up a new tab or window and redirects you to a new destination.

The more backlinks a web page has,the more popular it is in Google’s eyes. Think of backlinks as votes. The more votes you have,the better chance you have at ranking.

It is also important to note that Google ranks web pages and not websites. This means guys we want to focus on ranking individual post and or pages instead of website domain.

Make sure you have a list of keywords before you try to rank for search terms. Try the Jaaxy keyword tool if you need help.

Read my post that went viral 17 Easy Ways to Monetize Your Blog

 

How Do Backlinks Affect SEO

Not  all backlinks are created equal. Backlinks carry more power if they have PR (page rank) and relevance.

Page rank means that the website has high authority; relevance means the website is in the same niche as you..

example:

If your website was about finance,then a back link from the Wall Street Journal would carry a lot more power than a backlink from a random book website.

Why?

Well the Wall Street Journal has high authority and is well respected and in the finance niche. A random book website won’t have any authority,and it has no relevance to finance.

DoFollow vs  NoFollow Backlinks

There is an important distinction between DoFollow and Nofollow backlinks, and it plays a huge factor in terms of ranking in search engines. A  DoFollow link will count as a vote for your website,while a NoFollow link will not.

A doFollow link will look like this:

<a href=”URL”> LinkText</a>

 

A nofollow link will look like this:

<a href= “URL” rel= “nofollow”>Link Text</a>

The reason nofollow links were introduced was because SEOs were abusing the power of backlinks strictly to rank content in the search engines.

Thus, Google introduced nofollow links to prevent that from happening.

Quality relevant comments and wallet grabbing content,yes that’s our Blog Comment Service.

Black Hat vs White Hat vs Grey Hat  SEO

These are common terms in the SEO community,and I wanted to give a quick definition for each before we move onto my backlinking  approach.

  • Black Hat SEO refers to aggressive ranking tactics that do not abide by search engine rules.
  • White Hat SEO  refers to 100% natural and organic ranking. This strategy takes forever to rank content.
  • Grey Hat SEO is less aggressive than black hat more aggressive than white. As long as you do correctly then you won’t suffer any slaps on the wrist by Google.

My Backlinking Approach

We are going to focus on using web 2.0 properties to assist  in ranking our web pages. A  Web 2.0 property refers to a page from a website that allows user-generated content.

For example: You Tube,blogger,Wikipedia,Hubpages, and Squidoo  are all Web 2.0 properties.

This is how the process works:

Step 1: We write blog post that we to rank for on our website. The blog post is 1,000 words.

Step2: We rewrite the article 4x(300-400 words) and publish it on different web 2.0 properties using different anchor text,creating 4 backlinks from high quality sites.

Step3:We repeat this process for keywords we want to rank for and build up authority in the search engines over time.

9 Ways to Kill Your Blog !

Hand_with_knife

Maybe you have a blog but don’t know where to go with it. Don’t worry ladies and gentlemen that’s why I wrote this post.

9 Ways to Kill Your Blog !

1.You Don’t Have a Plan

When I started my first blog,I was all over the place. That is the most common blogging mistake I see newbies make. They have no clue what to blog about so they blog about everything but nothing particular.

Before you start your blog have a plan for it.
I’m sure you guys have heard the saying,”A man without a plan can’t make a stand.”

For example this blog is to educate and inform newbie internet marketers proven techniques to make money online. Guide them with correct detailed information so they also prosper and succeed.

Know what You want to accomplish with your blog.

2.You Don’t Show Your Own Personality

There’s an over-saturation of blogs on the internet. According to Smartblogger,com there are 255 blogs,therefore you have to stand out from the crowd with your own personality.

I have noticed a lot of bloggers try to copy the style of influencers in their niche. But remember people are drawn to genuine and unique bloggers who don’t to fake the funk.

My best tip to you guys is to write like you would speak to your best friend. Don’t be like Mike. Be Yourself.

Let me Help You with your Social Media Management

3.They Don’t Make Money Right Away so They Quit

Building a blog is like building a brick house. It takes along time to build but once it’s built it’s built to last.

Spend 9-12 months grinding hard and you will have a well oiled blog machine spitting out sales everyday.

The quitters will be knocking themselves for giving up early.
With blogging you have to sacrifice short-term pain for long-term gain.

If you are only focused on money people will feel your sense of desperation.
Guys focus on helping people first making money second Trust me it works.

4.Identify Your Audience

Your blog isn’t supposed to cater to everybody.You should focus on a specific audience create all your content with them in mind.

When you know your audience creating content is easy because you know them like family.

You know their struggles,wants and needs. So when you create content that speaks to their heart,it creates instant trust and credibility for you.

5.Poor User Experience

You do notice how my site has a clean list of navigation tabs and social icons to connect.

Overcrowded navigation bars,confusing layouts,childish graphics and slow loading speeds are all examples of poor user experience.

Keep your navigation bar simple,have an organized layout and use professional graphics. Don’t have blinking ads and flashing banners everywhere. Sometimes less is more.

6.You Have No Mystery

Blogs that have all their business opportunities or producets on the wall for everyone to see is a definite turnoff. Guys create mystery around your brand and what you do.

Start with value so people will be dying to opt in to your email newsletter to find out more. Then you can sell your products and services on the backend.

7.Ineffective Copywriting

Inject curiosity and excitement into your blog titles and headlines,so your readers will “want to click”. This is called copywriting. Most blogging newbies don’t know how to “sell the click”.

Read my Top post about headlines

8.Don’t Promote Content

Writing a blog post and hitting publish is only 50% of it. The other 50% is marketing your post.
If you notice all my social media icons are used to share all my new blog post to my social media channels. Google Alerts is another option.

9.Don’t be Inconsistent
Most blogging beginners fall victim to the blogging “crash and burn”.
They get high on blogging for a few wekks or months then they disapear like beer on a hot summer day.

The best way to stay on track is to keep a posting schedule and stick to it.

Be realistic though,don’t set yourself up for failure. It’s better to blog less and stay consistent. This is also out of respect for your readers and the search engines.

Conclusion

Blogging can be a very profitable part of your business or a big waste of time. It all depends on your approach and execution. Preventing the mistakes in this post is a very good start.

So guys let me know if you agree with my post and how many blogs have you murdered? Also share this post to all your social media outlets.Thanks Y’all.

5 Things to Promote on Your Website!

 

Business People Team with 3D Puzzle Pieces
5 Things to Promote on Your Website!

I have been an affiliate marketer since 2011,but only full-time since January 1,2016.

I have noticed one of the things that holds many people from progressing besides finding a niche is Not knowing what to promote on their website.

Don’t worry about what to sell,finding your niche should be your first goal. Once you establish your niche finding what to promote is easy.

Without identifying a niche,they can’t really pin point the right products to sell.
Read my Review about
Clickbank University

Find what your niche crowd needs (products that solve problems) and give it to them. Once you do find what they like or want,try to sell them for a fair price.

Say you came up with one awesome product to sell to your niche audience ,but there are two different affiliate programs selling the same product at different prices.

If one affiliate program sold the product for $ 125 and another for $ 3,000. Which would you pick?

My opinion is that you should pick the $125 one because it gives your customer the same quality or service that the $ 3,000 does,that would make them happier.

If you would make $12.50 for promoting the cheaper one and $300 for promoting the more expensive one,if you only care about the $300 commission then you can call yourself a scammer.

If you bought something and found out you spent 5x the cost,I’m sure you would be mad as hell,customers don’t forget when they get screwed.

Sometimes you can sell more of the cheaper product.You end up selling more volume of the cheaper product which would add up making more people happy.

The 5 Different Things You Can Promote

1.)General affiliate marketing. This is how most websites monetize themselves,you will definitely always find something to promote.

Whether it’s a physical product or a digtal product or it can be services. You can sign up with most of the big affiliate networks such as Wealthy Affiliate,Maxbounty or Amazon for free.

Find the product you want to sell or promote get the affiliate link and begin selling it on your website.

Read my post Top 4 Affiliate Marketing Programs

2.)Sell your own services/products.

If you have the knowledge to create and sell your own product or service that is comparable or better than what you see,you will be able to make money doing this.

Two great examples is my Blog Comment Service and MakingCashOnline’s Social Media Management Service
You always want to go with a niche,because if you are credible it’s very easy to make your product.

Example If you’re a public speaker you can sell advice about that through your
website.

3.)Affiliate marketing,just on a more local level.

Instead of doing business with big networks like Amazon,you do it with a business close to your local area who will compensate you adequately.
I would recommend you be highly educated in social media marketing,this would increase your chances of finding employment with top tier companies online.

4.)Ads. This is sort of like local marketing,but instead you host businesses on your page and promote them.

5.Just collect leads and don’t sell anything yet! Anything you do decide to promote later,whether it’s services or products Collect an email list and do the other 4 things I told you about not through your website,but through the list you will accumulate.

In Conclusion:

There’s no such thing as not having something to sell or promote.

In the 5 ideas above,I have given you thousands of ways to make money online,let me know how they work out and if you have some suggestions let me know.

property. That means search engines are allowed to transfer

5 Blogging Tips That Get Huge Results

Business_People_Siluete
5 Blogging Tips That Get Huge Results.
Recently I’ve been critiquing and experimenting with various blogging strategies to find those little things that get huge results. Guys today I want to share 5 that are working for me.

1.That “You Can’t Miss” Headline

A compelling headline must promise some kind of benefit or reward for the reader,in exchange for the valuable time it takes to read me.I have recently noticed headlines that have just “a little something extra” in the titles of blog posts on popular sites like lifehacker and copyblogger.Read more about that in a post just about headlines

2. Start with a Story

We love stories. We can’t help but finish a story that we’ve started,so when you start your article with a story,people are likely to continue reading,and the further down the page they go,the likely they are going to keep going.
On blog posts where I do start with a story,the bounce rate (which is a user who only visits one single page and leaves within 30 seconds) is significantly less. With that said start with a story and put the hook in them and it’s all good.

3.Check Analytics. Add Opt-in Forms. Enjoy a bigger list.

Track your website performance,individual page performance,banner ad performance and the bounce rate,this strategy only takes a few minutes yet some days hardly anyone follows through with it.

When I learned I had a ton of traffic visiting my AboutDarrell, I immediately added opt-in forms to the page,and after 2 months I experienced a 80% increase in opt-in conversions on that specific page.

This is why I also include an opt-in form at the bottom of all my posts,near the comment form,because it’s one of the most heavily visited areas on the site.

Whether it’s a post or a page,it doesn’t matter.Where ever most people end up on your site,that’s where you want to put an opt-in form.

Just in case you need it below is a link to my Social Media Management service.

4.Isolate Super Important Links

Did you notice how I linked to my Social Media Management service above?

The link is isolated on it’s own line and it takes up the entire line too.

That link is an important link within this post,one that can help a lot of people.

I’m giving this link the best chance possible to be clicked on by isolating it the way you see it there.

How so?

We cannot control the device people use to consume our content. A computer,a laptop or mobile device-that’s not up to us,but our audience.

I learned that while catching a presentation by Greg Hickman from mobile-mixed.com he talked about optimizing our content for the ever-growing mob of mobile users we have coming to our websites.

So how does an isolated link help?

Have you ever tried using your finger to tap on a link on a mobile device,and clicked the wrong link instead?
It happens to most of us,because most websites are not mobile optimized?

It only takes a few seconds to implement,but isolating your important links can mean the difference

between someone easily clicking through and going to where they need to go,or someone not finding their

way around or getting frustrated and leaving for good.

5.After You Hit Publish,This Step Should Be Next

For a long time,I would blog until I hit the publish button. Once I hit that button and confirmed that

the post I just wrote was up on my website,I considered myself done until it was time to start the next

post.

I know that writing a post is just half the battle,and hitting the publish button is actually just the beginning of what blogging really is about

Blogging isn’t just about publishing content,it’s also about marketing that content and getting it out into the world for people to read,share and take action.

There are of course several different ways to market a blog post,and we all seem to understand the

importance of sharing our post on Facebook and Twitter and other social media channels where our audience

hangs out–but even before doing that,there’s one step in between that you should implement that will

help get your content in front of more people who have yet to discover you.

Since hearing,Gary Vaynerchuk say on his podcast “take a little time create an image with some text and your logo on top of it,then I should share it on Facebook and other platforms.

Since starting this strategy my friends,Facebook has become the #1 referring website for Making Cash Online

As far as tools to create these images,I use pixlr or paint.net.

Well I hope you guys implement at least one of these strategies,all of these tips don’t take very much time to implement except the last tip if you’re not familiar with image editing, but they can get huge results in your blog and online business.
