Is affiloblueprint 3.0 updated for 2014?

I have been away from affiliate marketing for a while and I am now ready to dive back in head first. I am still a member of affiloblueprint 3.0 and I was just wondering if it was still up to date to start making money in 2014. I have been hearing some bad things about all the backlinking and article spinning that I remember being taught here not working anymore when trying to get ranked in google. Just wondering.

Hi Octavis,

Affiloblueprint 3 has been updated to reflect some of the changes in link building this 2014. Link wheels is no longer part of the link building methods, but article marketing still is. We no longer recommend article spinning and the course has been updated to reflect this.

We will be updating the course yet again. This time to include the Google Keyword Planner as well as several other updates.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Hi both Cecille and Octavius,

Actually I can not accept ABP is taking so long to update this Google Keyword Tool and bring in Keyword Planner. This was one of the reasons why I had to leave ABP some months back. If you look around almost all online marketing guide platforms have done this change some months back. It is now more than one year since Google did the shift. This is highly unacceptable. My experience with ABP is that, I feel it was with good intentions Mark started this , but with many students coming in, ABP has not given adequate thought to doing any improvements. We all know if you have the basics right, and with some luck you would be able to earn a few bucks here and there. This is not online success. Even a fly-by-night type of marketing could work sometimes. So please be more proactive. You can take a leaf from NPC ( Niche Profit Classroom) of Adam Short and see how such a small place keeps abreast with even the smallest changes, the search engines come up with. Wish you best for the future with more concerted effort in improving the course.

I would agree with wijesinghega, if you have not already, you need to update the keyword research tool! This is integral to building a new site. The old tool was replaced just after I completed that part of the course when I joined 6 months ago...

I also found the SEO part of the AB course a little lacking. Building links from directories, article sites and forums is not enough to rank a site in a competitive niche. And guest posting is a hard slog for a newbie just starting out. Plus Mat Cutts has just warned people off guest blogging as the next Google axe to fall on SEO.

While I would not do it on a site I cared about, I have been testing tiered link building strategies and have had some good success so far.

See my case study here:

http://noobwarrior.com/case-study-resul ... tial-test/

There's a step learning curve but once you are up and running its a far quicker method of ranking sites and banking some money. The site in my case study makes $50 - $100 a day after 3 weeks.

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick update. We have made the necessary changes to Step 1 Videos 5 and 6. These are the videos on keyword research. They have been updated to show keyword research using Traffic Travis and Affilotools.

>>> I appreciate your feedback. I have noted this and will forward it to the appropriate department. Guest blogging for link building or SEO purposes is no longer a good practice. This does not mean that guest blogging in itself is wrong. If you submitted a good article to a website owner who likes and believes in your work enough to publish it on his site, then there's nothing to be afraid of. It's posting in guest blog sites you should refrain from.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Hi wijesinghega and octavism836,

Cecille is right, the AffiloBlueprint course has already been updated for 2014 with new keyword research training using AffiloTools and Traffic Travis. If you watch or read the Step 1 lessons 5 and 6 again they contain the updated content. The Google Keyword Tool is no longer referred to for keyword research.

We also update the resources and homework for this step to reflect those changes.

@nick38 @octavism836

We also removed reference to article spinning from the Step 6 Off Page SEO and Step 7 Inbound Marketing training and added in extra training on Google+.

There are also a lot of other link building methods like Kindle and YouTube marketing, document sharing, ad swaps and solo ads that you can use over an above the standard article marketing, Web 2.0, forum and blog commenting.

Finally we updated the 3 link building plans in the resources section of Step 7 so that you have a process you can follow to market your site no matter what your budget.

All of these changes were made at the start of the year. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

All the best,
Dean

For any of you folks thinking about Niche Profit Classroom mentioned above, you may want to take a gander at this...

Yes it's been updated. If you have the 2.0 version, you may upgrade by visiting your member page. You should see an upgrade link just above your ABP page.

Thanks for reply. I went ahead and upgraded to Affiloblueprint 3.0.

When using Affilotools Keyword Research module it says after I make a few seed keyword searches that:

"Today's keyword research limit has reached. Please try again tomorrow."

Any idea what limit this is? I didn't find mention of any daily limit in the course content.

Please explain

Thanks

I am sorry for the inconvenience caused. Affilotools has its limitations. If you received a message that you have reached the limits, you may try again after 24 hours :)

If I'm not mistaken, you can do up to 25 keyword research per day on free version. Do not be discourage with this limitation. Keyword research should be ongoing and periodic. You can choose few keywords first and build content from those. Traffic Travis also limit up to 20 keyword phrases.

Then after few contents or whenever you want to check for some keywords, plan to gather 20 keyword phrases. Rinse and repeat
