This is the big question for me. I am doing all this work and how do I know it is working?

So, to start with,

  • I always battled to write a 500 word article. I was ecstatic when I hit 500 words
  • I rarely, if ever, got my articles indexed
  • It took me 4 - 5 days of 6hrs a day to get an article researched, writen and posted
  • I dreaded finding the subject for my next article
  • I never asked questions for fear of looking Stupid
  • Writing posts on WA was not for me
  • and the list goes on

I had a couple of false starts with SWAG for various reasons but now I believe I have found my stride.

  • I routinely write articles of 1000+ words, often going 1500 to 3000 words
  • my articles are being indexed regularly and often within 12 hours
  • I research, write and post an article in less than 6 hours
  • I have a list of articles waiting to be writen, keywords and all
  • I ask questions and get great help
  • I post on WA, probably not as often as I should :-)
  • I love researching my topics with jaaxy
  • I.... oh OK... enough now. I am sure you get the point

In 2 words, SWAG Works.

Hi Heidi, if you go in the search bar and type in "swag" and you will see all the blogs on SWAG. You can also type in "gogetter" and get the training that the gogetters are getting as well.

The search doesn't bring much up, from what I can make out it's a separate training course from Certificate/Bootcamp.

It looked like you had to apply to join? Can you join late? Is there somewhere I can see what is involved? I thought I came across something a week or so back but I can't find it again.

It sure does. It seems to be modelled closely on the Boot Camp training but is just so much more focused.

Hi Bryan,
A great testimony of the SWAG challenge. I did not have the confidence when I started SWAG to produce even 750 words, but now that we have been at it for over 2 months.

Routinely I an do 1,100-1,300 or more (if I didn't shut it down).. My website went from about 12 articles to 35 + during this period.

I have learned so much. I second your comment that SWAG does Work", with a big YES!

good question,, I to have said if it ain't 1.000 more words I too wondered. I did this: The 586 words is great. the pictures add to the overall count. I have written as low as under the 500 and had positive results. I must assume the average is reverent is giving authority to your niche. The average attention span of an 40 yr. old adult is 30 seconds, so... The means by with which your message is attributed r goes ur readers. Formula would be rich content, promoting your opinion, and providing an answer, u are a rare species,, just my take

I think that t appropriate graphics and good headlines entice people to read articles. the additional keywords in a longer article don't do your rankings any harm either.

Yes, I have had some success with a shorter article but they do not seem to get listed as easily.

Kyle's Method works: A simplistic overview;
1. Research the months keywords at once
2. Make an article list in Site Content
3. Put the framework for each article together, including Headlines
4. Now you just have to fill out the framework whenever you need to write a post and your articles are done.
