If You Only Had $100.00/month to Spend on SEO...

Hypothetically speaking...If you only had $100.00/month to spend on SEO, what service or product would you use? O.K., so it's not as hypothetical as previously inclined.

Hi Jack,

I'd probably spend it mostly on link building services and PPC, all those good stuff to drive traffic to my site. That's really the most challenging part for me so that's where I spend more on.

Have a good day!

Thanks Cecille,

But... what service or product would you use if $100/month was your max limit? Where do you ( in your opinion) get the most bang for your buck?

Hi,

Your money will go further if you do some of the work on your own. For example, you can get Article Marketing Robot for $97 one time fee. Then, you could outsource articles to use for just a few dollars each, say you do 4 articles a month (with spun versions), submit one a week using AMR, that's $20, then subscribe to Build My Rank for $57 a month and have them do 8 write+submits a month. That's your $100. Then you can use those first 4 articles for additional directory submissions if you like/have time.

You'll also get a good return on guest posting and building your email list.

Guest posting is free :)

All you need to do is write a top-notch article for another blog and you can siphon off some of their traffic.

If you do this, try to go for the top blogs in your niche. I made the mistake of starting with the small-fries (who really don't get any traffic), and it turned out to be a waste of time. Go for the biggest blogs out there that accept guest posts :)

You can easily get a few hundred direct visitors from the blog, plus the SEO benefit of a high quality back link.

I know guest posting isn't very popular because it involves interacting with human beings, but give it a shot. It works!

Hi Jack,

I usually go through oDesk. It's a personal preference as I am used to their system but you can check our eLance, Freelancer and iWriter as well. There's Affilorama Services too.

Clayton's suggestion of guest posting is real great. But this takes time as you would need to actively participate on blogs within your niche. Still, the effort is definitely worth it.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Are you saying you can get 4 articles with spun versions for only $20. I must be doing somthing very wrong. When you say spun versions are you just talking about word level spinning or sentence rewrite level.

The articles that I've purchased at iwriter.com come with both the original article plus the spin syntax version (word level spinning).

This is good advice in the post Panda world, You can find people looking for guest posters at http://myblogguest.com

I don't have much faith in article directories or networks anymore, though I just joined Brad Callen's new network; too soon to know if it will do any good.

Thanks for the response esolutions. I thought you meant sentence rewrite spun versions at first - That's why I thought it was so cheap. I've used iwriter a few times myself - It isn't bad.



Do you guys have any advice on guest blogging. One thing that has put me off is I am not a very good writer. I use places like needanarticle and textbroker to get my content - but I am not sure if this level of content would be good enough for guest posts. The standard of writing is quite good at these places but the articles do lack personality at times. How do you include your links - In a resource type box at the bottom.

I have seen a couple of other places mentioned for guest posting:
1. bloggerlinkup.com
2. guestpostexchange.com
I have not used these personally but have heard other people recommend them.

Guest posting/blogging is slowly emerging as one of the surefire ways to get traffic to your site. That's why sites like the ones you mentioned are emerging. We also have our own through the YO Blog Post. Yes, no joke about the "top-notch" writing. Your article must be both original and entertaining. There are talented writers out there that you can hire if you have difficulty with article writing.

There's really no "resource box" in guest posts. What you get is a link back to your site as well as a brief description of yourself as author.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

If I have less than 10 sites, I'd take the $40/month sevice from Article Ranks.. and use that to backlinks my posts on link authority (free, need to contribute a site)..

I'd take a couple of (best) fiverr gig for articles for an ezinearticle link on my posts/pages and rewrite that article and submit to top article directory.

If I have some more,.. or if I have a little over 100$ as budget, I'll take the $57 one time payment for scrapebox and look for high PR posts (dofollow) and comment for backlink (you can also do what most users 'do' witih scrapebox, but I suggest you dont and manually hunt down highPR do follow blogs post and manually comment on them)..

I have recently started guest posting/blogging and here is how I find high page rank/popular blogs in my niche to guest post:

I go to google blogs and type in my niche with SEO quake turned on. I find the top blogs in my niche. I originally contacted them directly with no success(allowing a newbie to guest blog). So I took 12 of the most popular blogs and followed them on twitter. I waited to see if any would follow back. 5 of the top blogs followed me back and a couple of the twitter accounts were the owners of the blogs. I contacted them through twitter and found a few that were happy to let me guest blog.

I guess the moral of the story is that, through twitter ( or other social networks), the owner of the blogs found my request to be more personal. This technique has allowed a newbie in my niche to guest blog on popular sites.

Free high PR backlinks, with a little work, is always a good thing.

Social networking sites, particularly Facebook and Twitter, are becoming more and more essential to affiliate marketers. If you want something to go viral ASAP, tweet it. It's also a marvelous way to interact with the people within your niche, not to mention a good way to get traffic to your articles.

Have a good day!

spending about 100$ per month is not a small amount for average seo service . some service providers charges a little over 200$ to bring your website at top in search engine with respect to some keywords.
