I've been testing a few keyword tools, and trying to match up traffic stats from the tools vs traffic stats from my websites, to see which ones are accurate, or which ones are the most accurate compared to each other.As I was looking through my website, I realized I was getting a lot more traffic than the numbers were showing. Why was nothing matching up?Well, I figured out it was because even though I target ONE keyword per page, the page actually ranks for multiple keywords. Here's an example

It's very exciting to sign up for an internet marketing or online business training program when you see "shocking" success stories. "Teenage kid makes $30,000 in just 3 months""I doubled my traffic overnight with this secret system"Though many of these stories are actually true (I've seen some incredible ones with my own eyes, within Wealthy Affiliate), the truth is that most of us normies have to do it the hard way - with work!My own websites are a great example of this. They are slow to prog

I noticed something interesting today in Google Search results. For some reviews that are extra long, I have been creating a table of contents with "jump links" to skip to certain sections of the page. That way people can see what I'm going to talk about on the page (like a table of contents), but also so they can skip to the places they want to on the page.Guess what?!Those links show up in Google.This is just one more way to make your website look more attractive to click in search engines.

I log in every day to WA and check out the top 10 posts on the dashboard home page. Though almost always interesting to look at, for some reason, the past few days have been on fire!Lots of people are posting about making money!On top of that, we have some super helpful tutorials, and a case study proving that starting a new website can yield results within days - not months.I highlighted a few of my favorites, but they are all good.Is there something special about November? Is all the hard wor

I was adding some Amazon links to my website last night, and ran into a problem that happens from time to time. Some products are unable to be linked directly! I'm not sure why, but it happens.They recommend linking to a "search" page instead, so initially I affiliate-linked to a search page using Amazon Stripe. However, I'm not sure if I still get affiliate credit for the sale in that situation.So I searched for the exact same product on other websites. Guess what?! I found it!If you find that

Let me save you some time. Learn from my mistakes! I wasted hours and hours, plus hundreds of dollars writing articles trying to target these keywords. Don't waste yours!What keywords?Similar Keywords, Similar IdeasLet's say you look in Jaaxy and find some keywords like this:how to train a doghow to train your dogtraining your doghow to train dogcan you train a dogtrain my dog how toMy experience tells me that those keywords can be ONE article. The idea is similar and the keywords are similar.

I recently applied to an affiliate program at (commission junction), and was rejected. Huh? Me? Impossible!So I sent them an email, listing my URL, promotion methods, screenshots of traffic, and examples of content where I rank on page 1 for specific keyword phrases. I showed them potential traffic sources on my site where I could funnel traffic to their website as well.It was PROOF that I knew what I was doing, and could be a benefit to their business.Well, they approved my application

I've been using Jaaxy's new rank tracking feature, and like that I can see where I came from in terms of rank, to remind myself that I'm doing something right! Sometimes I get so caught up in other metrics I'm doing poorly at, that I forget I'm doing great in other areas.The rank tracking feature can really be a good moral boost when you see rankings like this!Here's another one I've been working on that I hope will climb up further on page 1 of Google.Not all rankings improve over time.

For a long time, I have said that Adsense is not worth your time. You can make much more money with affiliate links. I refused to use Adsense on my blog because it was distracting from affiliate links. But I've been discovering that how much money you can make with Adsense has exceeded what I originally thought possible.There's more to the story when it comes to building a website that relies on general ads like Adsense, or an approved Google ads publisher like MediaVine and Ezoic.Some niches a
