The last idea for increasing the quality of SEO and therefore higher SERP, which means more unpaid traffic,is responsive design.
If you’re an experienced internet marketer,you’re well aware of this important piece for internet and affiliate marketing sites.

Google will send you relevant articles that contain your keywords. It will send you the article right to your mailbox.

Third,improve SERP by improving time-on-page,hence “bounce rate”.
This is basically a linking strategy which needs to be done, to improve your SERP positioning.
When you enter your link or “backlink”, if you prefer,on an image, be sure to go to “Advanced Options”, click the ▼, and then check the “Open link in a new window/tab” box.
The above example is for a link connected to an image. If you have only a link to which you want to point your visitors, here’s the html:
<a href=”http://www.yourlink.com” target=”_blank” >Link</a>, note you want to add in ‘ target=”_blank” ‘.
If you have a widget, the same applies you’ll need to add in target=”_blank”,after the link to which you’re directing your visitor.
Here’s the partial html for my Amazon store.

The obvious SEO improvement or strategy is to keep the visitor on the site,to improve bounce rate.
Fourth,Improve CTR by emulation
Emulation is a better word than copy,but everything done in internet marketing is basically emulating the success of others.
Emulation really implies competition,and the latter is responsible for fast and dramatic improvements in processes, systems, and techniques.
So for this Frassadys’ Make Money Online 061615 Blog,when you emulate you look at what other professional marketers are doing and use that information, with the addition of your own value add-ons.
There is always copy that you’ll need to take and modify to fit what you’re doing.The professional marketers always take copy that is successful, and put it into a swipe file for later use.
Look at Google paid ads on the first page of Google for specific keywords.
You’ll generally see professional ads in which the keywords have been researched,and there is money to be made, and probably has been made on them.
Rest assured that the advertisers are getting good return on those high SERP ads.
Keep in mind,that good copy always implies getting your prospect curious about a proposal. Here are some key curiosity phrases to build upon:
- Find Out How
- What You Do If
- Discover the Amazing Way
- Have You Ever Wondered What Would Happen If
Here are the five most persuasive words in the English language:
Moreover for this Frassadys’ Make Money Online 061515 Blog,these are research advertising words that not only get improved CTR, they also get an improved conversion rate.
Recall the phrase “features tell,but benefits sell”. This is why professional marketers incorporate benefit phrases in their ad copy.
So “Lose weight with this important product…”,or ” make money online with this… “.
Five, a blurb about conversation marketing to help SEO
This is an offshoot of content marketing, and it involves getting more involved with your visitors,prospects and customers.
This is where you need surveys,testimonials,feedback,relationship building,and to be accessible to your audience.
Obviously,that’s part of SEO and building return traffic.To increase traffic to your site,you can use the social networks.
Use “chat” on Facebook and “Hangout”on Google Plus ,you basically reach out to your audience and start a conversation. (conversation marketing)
There are also Q and A sites you need to answer questions from your online marketing expertise,check out Quora,Mind the Book,Amazon’s Askville,and Yahoo! Answers.
You also need to ask questions.
Last, are the internet marketing forums. One to which I’ll call your attention is the Warrior Forum.
An impotant tool that can be used to establish communication channel on several sites at once, is called Buzz Bundle.
