The Crowd Force Alternative – Buzzbundle Is Better

Crowd Force Too Expensive, Use Buzzbundle Instead To Traffic Build The night of Feb 10, I watched a webinar given by the Blueprint Pro Plus boys, Aidan Booth and Steven Clayton. It was a very long-winded webinar that I wished would have been over in an hour, not the two and half hours that it did take.  Maybe you were there at your computer as well watching! The webinar (http://blueprintproaccess.com/access/limited-replay.html -link expires soon) was basically a relaunch of their Blueprint Pro Plus product that they started a couple years back, which cost something around $600 one time, or there was a monthly option as well if I remember correctly. In their presentation they added a few more things (courses, etc) into the mix to entice new subscribers to signup.  Items such as: Crowd Force (traffic building software), Trustify Trust Seals, Domains on Fire (Locate expiring domains), 38 Premium Themes ($1900 value) ouch (You can purchase 87 Premium WP Themes at Elegant Themes for $39/yr), and others. The biggest product that watchers of the webinar were probably on the lookout for was a piece of software called Crowd Force. Crowd Force was first heard about when The Trinity Code was released last year so the term has been talked about in the forums like Warrior etc for a while now. I registered for the presentation because I was looking at it as well just to see what it was all about since hearing Steve Clayton on their Christmas website talk about their new ways to get traffic that doesn’t involve SEO. So, basically I just wanted to know more about what they were doing compared to what I was doing. And what did I find out? Well, their ways are not very new to me, but they probably are to newcomers in the internet marketing circle. I was also hearing that the days are gone where we are able to build links like we used to. We can no longer do keyword research for 3 high traffic keywords with lower competition, throw up a website with a few pages of content built around these 3 keywords and start link building. This is not true either, as it can still be done and you can still earn some good coin by doing seo and link building. Yet, this is a whole other topic isn’t it? But is there a better way then the old ways of doing SEO? Well this is where I became interested in the software Crowd Force as I was already using something very similar called Buzzbundle and like I said above I wanted to find out if...

Things I read in January 2014

Here is another installment to the things I read and this is for January 2014. January was a busy month for me as I ended up building 2 more affiliate sites in niches I know absolutely nothing about, but I am learning. I wish I could post details about them online but when I did this in the past the site had to be discarded and started over. I have heard this from other marketers as well, which explains why there doesn’t exist any great tutorials for building sites anywhere IMO. Anyways enough about that right! Lets get started then with a post I read over at Searchenginejournal.com which to this day makes me laugh. The title is “Why Should We Do Everything Google Says?” written by Bernadette Coleman. I love this article because it talks about exactly what I believe and that is who made Google God? Do we need to listen to all the crap that spills from their mouths? Well in my opinion certainly not and others should think about this as well. To me they are a dictatorship that feeds the people with propaganda that basically serves them well but not others. Just think about the stupid nofollow tag, where would they be if nobody used that tag on their websites? I personally would like to see a nofollow revolution. J Next I didn’t read anything but watched a video of an interview with Rand Fishkin by Jaime Tardy. Usually I do read or listen to much over at Moz.com but I did enjoy the interview. Jaime asked Rand questions such as: “Is SEO dead?” “How to rank a site” “What ways are the best use of ones time to get traffic”. Very relevant information. Stats and Trends – Are you into stats? Here is a stat I found to be unexpected by me on how many people are searching for the terms “Content Marketing” and “Link Building”. The graph follows these two terms starting in the year 2004 to the present. You can see how a search for the term link building is lowering while the search for content marketing is increasing. I guess this really represents how people are starting to market their websites. You can view the graph here. Widget Links Link widgets and Googles stance on them. Here we go again with another update from the God Google. Matt Cutts gave an update on this in a new video on Googlewebmaster tools over at Youtube.com. They have basically said these should be nofollow links if the anchors are keyword rich, hidden or low quality. What is a low quality link exactly...

Hostnine Reseller Hosting Review – Location and IP Diversity

Hostnine Reseller Hosting Review – Location and IP Diversity

I have been using Hostnine Hosting for somewhere around 5 years now to host sites such as WordPress, Jcow, Drupal, and others. The sites I am hosting with them are not my money sites as I haven’t found a better host for this then Hostgator’s shared and reseller hosting. (You can read why I use Hostgator for my money sites here) Anyways, if you want to host sites such as blog network sites and take your SEO to the next level then Hostnine is a perfect choice for this. (And if you are not aware of how to create a blog network you can learn more about it here.) So why do I like Hostnine reseller hosting for hosting these types of sites then? The absolute main reason I love Hostnine is because when you purchase their reseller hosting you get to choose where you want each of your site’s hosted location. What they have is a network of locations, 3 are in the USA (East, West, Central), another is in the UK (Near London), another is in Singapore (Asia Location) and the last location is in the Netherlands (Europe Location). Those locations alone give you 6 choices around the world to host your network of sites from. The second added benefit of Hostnine’s various locations is when you install a new domain onto a new location you will receive a new IP. For example: If you have 12 sites, all located throughout those 6 locations and you need to install the 13th site. What happens when you install this new site lets say on their western location, where you have 2 sites already? What usually happens is it is not going to share an IP with the other 2 sites on that location so you not only have location diversity but you also receive IP diversity. Why is that so good? Well c-class IP diversity is essential for good SEO link building and Hostnine delivers that. My third reason for liking these guys so much is their resellers dashboard. Here you can do anything you like to your sites, whether you want to access cpanel, its just a click. If you want to move a site from one location to another all you have to do is go to the migration manager and a couple of clicks later the site is in the queue for moving. Others things available right inside the panel is support, network status and resource usage if you need to track that. Another benefit of using Hostnine’s reseller hosting plan is just by signing up with their level one you are allowed 100 domains...
