#1 Don’t just create a business page create a personal profile as well.

 

Just because your goal is to get more followers on your business page doesn’t mean you should neglect your personal profile.

Don’t just go out looking for other people’s stuff to comment on and Plus One. Make sure that you are posting engaging content just like you would on your blog. For your business page your content needs to all be relevant to your niche but your personal profile can have other areas of interest.

Google Plus isn’t like many other social media sites with a ton of fake profiles. Not only that but Google Plus doesn’t have all the restrictions either! If you have taken the time to fill out your profile completely you need to do so. Once it is filled out, and don’t forget to add some interesting posts and pics, start adding relevant people and you will be surprised at how many actually start adding you back.

 

Remember though…. You should be using your personal profile to reach out to other people.

 

People connect with people!

 

From there simply share your business posts on your personal page.

You need to be posting content regularly and at different times in order to stay in front of your audience. The more stories that come into their feed after yours the further down you get pushed. Someone could easily never see your morning post because they didn’t get on till after lunch.

How To Index Your Site On Google In 4 Minutes

 

Trying to figure out how to get your site mapped in minutes?

 

Authority domains have been the main focus of the search engines lately, as far as ranking is concerned. If you are a smart blogger you will want to be publishing your content to a community blogging platform like Kalatu(Empower Network). I am sure you want the traffic that you get from being ranked high in the search engines but hate the wait.

 

In this blog post I am going to be walking you through the steps to get your site indexed on Google in minutes.

 

How To Index Your Site On Google In 4 Minutes

 

Step #1 Map your blog with your own domain name

 

The very first step is going to be for you to map your blog with your domain name.

 

When a blogging platform has a community that is posting content to one specific domain it increases the overall authority of the blogging platform and everyone on it. So more than likely the domain that you are posting your content to might not be your own. This is why it is important to map the community domain to your domain/site. By doing this you will be building authority for your domain should you ever transfer to a different platform.

 

Just be careful of free blogging sites because they will remove your content if they find out you are selling on your blog. Most free blogging sites place ads within your content to make money for themselves.

 

Once you have your domain name mapped you can move on to the second step

 

Step #2 Add your domain to Google Webmaster Tool

 

Step #1 gives you the ability to connect your blog within Google Webmaster and verify that you have access to the content pages. The best thing that you can do for your blog is to connect it to Google Webmaster so that you can get information on your blog's performance.

 

Index Your Site On Google

 

Here is a list of things you can see and do

  • Submit a sitemap
  • See how many impressions your pages are getting
  • Check crawl rates


 

How To Index Your Site On Google In 4 Minutes

 

Step #3 Verify your domain with Google  Webmaster

 

This part is a little tricky so take your time going through it.

 

You will want to check “Domain Name Provider” because this is the easiest route if you have your domain mapped to an authority blogging community. From here you are going to follow the on screen instructions from within Google Webmaster. Depending on who the domain name provider(Ex. GoDaddy, HostGator, ect.) is they will have a drop down list for you to choose from with onscreen instructions.

 

If you get stuck on any part of this process go to YouTube and do a search of “how to verify {Your Domain Name Provider} domain within Webmaster?”

 

After you verify your domain you will have access to the dashboard from within Google Webmaster!

 

Step #4 Click “Crawl” Then “Fetch as Google”

After you verify the domain this is where the magic happens!! lol

 

Most of you out there reading this aren’t like normal people. You want to see results fast and not have to wait for the spiders to crawl your site. You could be waiting from a week to a couple of months for your site to get indexed if you don’t do something about it now.

 

On the left hand side of the Webmaster Tools dashboard, you will see an option that says “Crawl.” Click on that and you will see right below it another option that says “Fetch as Google.”

 

Index Your Site On Google

 

Now that you have this portion of the Webmaster Tools dashboard open, You will want to take your URL that you want indexed and click the button that says “Fetch.”

 

Step #5 Click “Submit to Index” then “Crawl this URL”

 

This is the final step!

 

Ok so assuming you have….

  • Mapped your blog with your own domain name
  • Added your domain to Google Webmaster Tool
  • Verified your domain with Google  Webmaster
  • Clicked “Crawl” Then “Fetch as Google”

 

You are now ready to push the magic button that is going to get you indexed on Google.

 

Just click “Submit to Index.”

 

Once you click “Submit to Index” another popup will show asking if you want to Crawl this URL.

 

There will be two options

  • Crawl with all of the direct links, you have 10 of these submissions a month(Use for Homepage)
  • You have 500 submissions using the other option so feel free to index all your pages

 

After about 5 minutes, head over to Google and search (site:yourdomain.com/the-rest-of-your-url). If you see your site you are indexed!

Selling Your Knowledge - Information Products

Did you know that 92% of the searches on the Internet are for “Information”?

 

Selling Your Knowledge - Information Products

 

How many times have you been searching for how to do something only to have a friend tell you to “Just Google it!”?

 

Selling Your Knowledge - Information Products

 

We are truly blessed to live in a time where anything that we want to know, we can simply pull out our phone and find the info we need online on the world wide web!

 

Even though a majority of the information is free did you know that a lot of people are willing to pay for the information they are searching for.

 

Why would they do this?

 

Probably the most important reason is to save time. People would rather pay someone and receive the information that they are searching than to spend the time searching themselves. one other big thing is that information that you pay for tends to be of a higher quality than free information.

 

This is GREAT News!

Top 10 Reasons to Start a Blog Now!

 

I get asked frequently by people What is a blog? According to wikipedia.org

A blog (a truncation of the expression weblog)[1] is a discussion or informational site published on the World Wide Web and consisting of discrete entries ("posts") typically displayed in reverse chronological order (the most recent post appears first).

 

Having a blog has many benefits. Not only can it help you get more traffic by ranking in google!  Here are my top 10 reasons why you should start a blog NOW!


 

Top 10 Reasons to Start a Blog Now!

 

Top 10 Reasons to Start a Blog Now!

#1 Interact with your clients. It is said that you have on average about 6 seconds to capture someone's attention to keep them on your website. If you keep your blog up to date you will always have fresh content for your guests to interact with.

 

#2 Help people. When you help other people with useful information they are more likely to buy from you.

 

#3 Bring like minded people together. When you have a blog you are not going to be able to help drawing in like minded individuals. So lets say you are doing a blog on performance cars… Guess who that is going to attract? A community of people who are interested in performance cars!

 

#4 Become an expert. When you are continuously blogging about a particular topic you can not help but become an expert. Not only will you become an expert but people in your industry will consider you the subject matter expert as well. Once that happens people will start referring people to you. Can you say FREE traffic!

#6 Marketing. Don’t be shy to tell people what you are offering! If you have a blog and products relevant to what you're blogging about why not tell people? The important part of this is you should be offering 80% value and 20% pitching your product. Do not become a spammer!
