william on the web

I have been plodding along with Internet marketing for a few years now and then I decided to get serious some 3 months ago. I was fortunate enough to hear of Mark Ling and that's how I landed on Affilorama. No regrets and probably the best support program available for anyone into Internet marketing.

Here's to each and everyone of your's success.

Very sad news...but great news to hear the Affilorama team is alright. All Christchurchers are in our thoughts. It really looks bad this time. William

No 1 Ranking On Google With An Image And Not A Webpage?

27th January, 2011 - Posted by william eckard

I have not had the time to do more research on this, but I notice that within my niche and for most of my targeted keyword phrases, images rank in the no.1 position (not a domain as such). If one clicks through on the image link, one lands on Google's Image search result page (just as though you have been searching in Google Images for the...

How do YOU select Your Niche

2nd October, 2010 - Posted by william eckard

I fully agree with James. Stay away from these niches as a beginner, you'll just get disheartened and we don't want that do we? Dig for something that has little competition and lower search volumes so that you can rank quicker and get rewarded quicker - that will make you want to stay in the game and then move on to the juicier fruits. Goog...

What's With The Yahoo/ Bing Thing?

22nd September, 2010 - Posted by william eckard

I've read the following in an article on a substantial site: "You will lose a lot of traffic if your web page currently has high rankings on Yahoo but not on Bing. Yahoo's own results will be dropped after the transition to the new Bing results." I find this interesting because my keywords are slowly making their way up the rankings...

Xsite Pro & RSS News Feeds?

13th September, 2010 - Posted by william eckard

Hi Fuzzy, RSS feeds can be considered duplicate content by Google. However, that is not really an issue that I worry about. Google won't deindex your site, but they may omit that pages RSS feed content if it doesn't have any other unique content on that page. From what you have explained, you are fine. [quote=Just put some really good...

Earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand

6th September, 2010

First thing I thought about when I heard it on the news was whether Mark, Simon and the team are OK. Thank God you were. .....Just heard on the news that over two thirds of the houses in Christchurch have been destroyed. That's terrible. We're thinking of you in these difficult times and...

How Merchants Could Make An Affiliate Marketer's Life Easier

6th August, 2010

Nice post Kim. I agree with Orangeboxes too. There are some merchants that go to a lot of trouble with their affiliate resources, but then again many merchants do not seem to understand the importance of their affiliates in their lives. With many of them one gets the feeling that the...

26th July, 2010

Informative post Mark. It helps to get a professional analysis as it does seem more difficult to rank with Bing. Again it seems like it all boils down to getting the basics right.

Top 6 hurdles for an affiliate marketing newbie

31st May, 2010

Spot on Kim! To all the very newbies out there, here is the catch. It is only logical that there is a lot of money to be made in affiliate marketing or Internet marketing per se. The Internet is humongus and the potential is limitless BUT the pot of gold it is only destined for those...
