Hey Rob here, how are you doing? Today I’d like to talk about getting free traffic to your affiliate offers from Facebook. I saw a couple of WSO’s recently which enable you to create image redirects for images, this is something I’d been considering for some time.
Imagine if you could put up whatever image you want on Facebook and when a Facebook user clicks on it They are automatically redirected to the affiliate offer that you are promoting.
Just watch the vdeo below, showing me using FB Traffic Master, a simple tool that gets great results.
I’ve used this tool only a few times recently..and each time has resulted in affiliate sales, it’s one of those tools that you’d call a “nobrainer” you fire it up, put in your links, click go and you’re done.
Your image redirect is built, uploaded and live on Facebook…before you can say “Mark Zuckerberg” (well maybe not quite that quickly)…but you get the idea!
Just find related images to an affiliate offer you are promoting, click go and BOOM!
Or maybe take a screenshot of a Youtube video and use the image as a redirect…the latter has worked well for me.
You need to take all of the opportunities you can get for free organic traffic these days and this is one tool that really capitalizes on the power of Facebook
Are You Ready To Increase your affiliate earnings?”
Hey guys here’s a review of a plugin that I’ve just picked up, it’s called WP Picpoll and it allows you to easily set up a poll,survey or quiz on your blog. Each selected option can be used to point people to a specific page, so it could be used to promote affiliate links or for listbuilding, two areas of great interest to me.. You can either create squeeze style pages with attractive guru style backgrounds or you can embed the quiz/poll into a blog post by just entering a shortcode.
I like applications which are intuitive and getting this plugin up and running was simple, there are training resources and access to support available from within the plugin’s settings page, but to be honest setting up your fist quiz or poll is so easy I doubt if you’ll be needing it. In terms of usability it’s very user friendly and setting up a poll takes a couple of minutes maximum. I can see some great potential for this plugin on my sites, anything that is going to encourage user interaction has got to be a good thing. The only problem most people will have is thinking up new polls and quizzes!
Have a look at the following examples:
So in the above example each one of the social Icons can be voted on once, and after voting the visitor is sent to whatever page you want. I love the translucent overlays they look great on a guru style background.
In this example you could be sending your customer directly via your Amazon affiliate link to the product in the thumbnail, again another great way to use this plugin. This plugin could definitely be good for seasonal affiliate promotions.
Or you can set up a quiz and give your visitor the opportunity to win a free prize if they guess correctly…this of course could be tied in to an optin form.
This is the example I decided to choose as I have embedded the shortcode created by the plugin into a blog post. In my example further down the page, you’ll see that the Social Icons are linked to my Facebook, Google and Twitter profiles. A little unimaginative on my side, but it gives you an idea of how you could use the plugin to your advantage.
The last screenshot is for another competition, I like the aesthetics of this plugin, it looks great and the options jump right out at you. I like this plugin and will be using it here on Stealthymarketer, II just need to be a little more imaginative with its use but I certainly can see is potential.
So here we go, down below is a poll I set up with the plugin, try voting on one of the options and see the plugin in action.
Best Traffic Source
6 votes (60%)
3 votes (30%)
0 votes (0%)
Results are shown after you make a selection.
Want to know another nice fact about this plugin? It will only cost you $10 to buy the single site license…and the Developers license will only cost you $10 more. This is definitely one of those plugins that will be an asset to your business and will allow you to engage well with your site visitors.
I thought it could be good to play with a pinterest strategy and to present it in a case study using the theme from IM wealthbuilders and their autoblogging plugin. I set up the pinterest theme, set autoblogging up (very simple to do). I picked a domain that had been sitting around for a couple of years that was getting a couple of unique visitors a day, set up statistics for the blog, linked the blog to Twitter with Twitterfeed and let it roll.
The first thing I noticed was just how quickly traffic started to come, the autoblogging component created a couple of compelling tweets that got some interest and click throughs, looking at my stats today, I expect my visits to double.
Pretty good results I think you’ll agree! I’m thinking of using sites like this to drive traffic to my existing blogs (feeder style) maybe use an open link wheel type structure. I’m excited by the possibilities of this theme, I think if you get it right then you’re going to do very well.
Take a look at a snapshot of my AWstats to get an even clearer picture of how awesome this theme is for driving traffic:
Can you see why this theme has got me excited yet? I think this is really something!
I also installed WP Clicks so I can monitor user behaviour, WP Clicks creates videos where you can view your visitors activity on the site, pretty cool plugin. The only problem with WP Clicks that I can see is that it could certainly suck up your time watching what your visitors are up to. However for the sake of this case study I think it will be very useful.
So to conclude on the second day of testing, I have a feeling that this theme and autoblogging plugin is going to be a winner. I’ll do an update in 7 days time and we’ll see what the traffic is like then. To check out the blog where I’ve installed the theme please visit http://www.nichesalsa.info
The month of November has been an incredible month for me, I’ve had a lot of new subscribers to my Internet marketing software membership site and I’ve been frantically working and creating powerful new internet marketing software for my new members. For only one dollar my members have access to all of the tools that I use on a daily basis to make money online. Even monthly access to Backlinker Professional, my flagship product!
Speaking of membership sites, if you haven’t tried this area then you may be leaving a lot of money on the table. Imagine having a membership site which provided the recurring income that you need to build your online empire and it really isn’t as difficult as you might have thought.
I’m really over delivering on my membership site, my subscribers are getting a ridiculous amount of value for a very reasonable price. Take a look at a product I’ve just given away, and what’s more I’ve given it away for a dollar!
This automatic blog Finder and commenter will find you high PR EDU blogs in a snap! It’s a complete no-brainer and ideal if you are the type of user who prefers simple one click solutions rather than having to learn complex applications like the brilliant (but potentially dangerous in newbie hands) Scrapebox.
just watch the demonstration below to see just how awesome the software is:
if I haven’t convinced you by now that it is really worth your while joining my new membership site, then I’d be very surprised!
Are you using blog commenting software to build back links to your website? If you are then good on you! And if you’re not then you’re missing out big-time and shame on you! Blog commenting is one of the traditional methods for getting back links to your website. It’s true that it’s not as effective as it once was, but blog commenting still has a lot of value. By linking to authority blogs in your niche then you will build credibility for your website result you’ll get better rankings in the search engines and it goes without saying that you’ll get more traffic.
The biggest drawback of blog commenting is the amount of time that it takes to find and then comment on blogs in your niche. It’s true that there are some fantastic programs out there like Scrapebox for example, but in inexperienced hands such tools can easily be a recipe for disaster.
Now don’t get me wrong, you can get hold of a plug-in for your browser called SEO Quake and combined with tailored queries for Google, you can search for WordPress footprints and discover blogs to comment on. You’ll need to alter the amount of results that Google serves in a search and you can easily do this by clicking on the settings tab within Google, but it’s still a hassle.
With ease-of-use and simplicity in mind I decided to develop blog commenting software, I did this because I realised that for some people scrapebox is too complicated, and let’s face it who doesn’t like a simple one click solution to their problems?
The blog commenting software that I developed makes finding high PR EDU, Gov, Commentluv and Recent comment enabled blogs a “walk in the park” all you have to do is enter the keyword phrase that you want to target, enter your site URL, your e-mail address and the blog type that you want to target and click go, it’s as simple as that!
Now if that doesn’t sound appealing to you, then maybe Making money online really isn’t for you! The software that I’ve developed “totally rocks” just take a look at the video below and after watching it, if I haven’t piqued your interest then I’d be extremely surprised. Watch how easily I find high PR EDU blogs in a couple of minutes…it really is that easy.
Pretty awesome hey? did you see those high PR blogs I found? And wasn’t it easy? Why pay for EDU blog packs, when you can easily find them yourself? Now I’ve got some great news, on my membership site I’m giving this software away in month two but I’m also going to offer it to my list subscribers for $30. so there you have it two ways of getting hold of this great software, you really ought to act on this one it’s an awesome deal as I’m sure you’re aware.
Here’s to your success Rob

One of the most important tasks that an Internet marketer has to do is backlinking. The more backlinks you have pointing to your site, the greater your visibility in the search engine results. You might have the best looking site on the planet, but without backlinks you will never be found.
A backlink is a link from another pointing to your website. The search engines find these links and follow them back to your website and index the content found, thus making it easier for people to find you from a search query. A backlink is essentially a vote for your site and the more links you have coming from established authority sites in your niche the better.As you backlinks increase, so does your popularity and you can gain a good placement hopefully at the top of the search results.
You can place back links in forum signatures (this is a great way to get traffic too), on blogs,in the resource boxes in articles, press releases, directories, twitter and anywhere where you can place a link. Posting on blogs in your niche is an excellent strategy, but don’t follow the lead of the spammer, read the posts that you find and provide some valuable content. As a blog owner I approve comments, but only when it’s obvious that the poster has taken some time to read my content and to write an intelligent reply, all the rest are sent to comment spam hell.
So how do you go about creating an effective backlink?
If you’ve done your niche research correctly and you’ll have a good idea of the keywords which you want to rank for in the search engines. With my Backlinker Professional application I wanted to rank for the term backlinker, (just type backlinker in Google and you’ll see that I’m in the no#1 position for that term.)
You need to construct your backlink in the following way:
Once you have placed this link on a blog post, forum etc and it has been approved the next thing is to ping the site where your link resides.
Ezinearticles is an excellent resource and by writing quality articles based around your keyword phrases you will receive traffic for years to come. I’m still getting paid for products I created years ago and don’t bother promoting anymore. It’s a great way to build up multiple sources of income which will benefit you in the both the short and long term. There is also the added bonus that webmasters will publish your article if they like it and you’ll end up getting more and more links to your website. This traffic is highly targeted to and results in impressive conversions.
Another idea you can try is to use Google Alerts and enter the keyword(s) that you are targeting, choose results from blogs and get Google to email you everytime your keyword is mentioned. Isn’t that simple? You have Google working for you, all you need to do is write a useful comment on the blogs found and you’ll gradually build up a load of backlinks.
Don’t forget about the power of social media either, sites like Twitter and Facebook are great places to drop your links as they are indexed regularly by the search engines.
Another place to look is Yahoo Answers, I’ve made a lot of money just by responding to questions where people have been looking for ways to build their Twitter following and how to increase their backlinks.
If you are a user of scrapebox or would like to discover blogs and forums where you can benefit from backlinks, then this post will be of interest to you. I have a list in PDF format showing hundreds of these seo footprints which you can use to your advantage. If you’re not a scrapebox owner, don’t despair because I have decided to build a forum scraper using some of these footprints. I’m just toying with the idea at the moment, but what the software will do is take the seo footprints and search Google for corresponding site type with your seed keyword(s). The software will then save all of the links to disk and navigate to each one in turn. I think this will be a really useful application and I’m going to start working on the software when I finish this post.
