Commission Autopilot is A Huge Success!

Paul Ponna’s newly released Commission Autopilot software suite has blown me away.

I have long been an advocate of article marketing, but the truth is that article marketing while still an effective approach is not what it once was.

What I liked about article marketing was its dual role as a source of both traffic and backlinks. I use these for both my own affiliate marketing efforts and as a way of helping my offline clients get found online.

What Commission Autopilot does is focus on an entirely separate group of highly ranked internet sites that have existed for years but somehow stayed off the typical internet marketers radar. These are the document sites like Scribd.

I actually have had several items on Scribd for several years, but did not realize what potential the site offered until I saw the advance webinar Paul had for people on his list on New Year’s day.

Once I watched his webinar, I jumped on the product buying it for my own use, and made sure I was signed up as an affiliate to promote it. In this case, because it was too good not to share with the good people on my lists and who read my blogs.

Now I am a little disappointed, because Paul is using the traditional sales video with it’s standard sales format to promote the product now that it is available for general purchase. The webinar I watched was far more persuasive, because in it he actually showed more of the power of the software, it action vs. merely extolling it’s promise in the sales video.

The primary offer consists of two separate software products. The first makes it super easy to identify high quality articles based on any keyword you select, and allows you to attach your link to the front or back end of the article or both.

The second software element, distributes that article or articles to the top 18 document sites on the internet. Several of which are in the top ranks of all internet sites and get millions of viewers daily.

The bottom line is that these articles you post benefit from the high Google Page rank of these sites and show better than the traditional article marketing sites I have used in the past. They also pass Google Juice to my sites.

Since the articles are closely associated with the long tail keyword I initially seached with, they are highly targeted and the people who find then via Google or direct access through the site are just the people I want to see my affiliate offers or send to my blogs or other internet properties.

All of this is done in minutes once you learn the ropes. Yesterday, I create nearly a dozen projects, each of which resulted in 180 high ranking backlinks and will eventually send hundreds if not thousands of visitors to my targeted sites over time.

Paul is strongly hinting that he will be taking this site down shortly, and is scheduling training classes to help people learn how to utilize the software more effectively.

I am used to people saying things are in short supply, but in this case it may be true. I urge you to take a quick look. I bought in a flash once I saw it’s potential and think you should as well.

Spinning Articles? I Recommend The Best Spinner

There is some debate online about the way Google treats “duplicate content.”  The dominant view is that it matters and matters a great deal. I’m not completely sold, but nonetheless I do use a spinner on many of the articles I post in multiple locations. Just to be safe.

When I first encountered spinners, I was turned off.  The quality of the results was so poor I would have been embarrassed  to have my name associated with the results.  That has changed.  I actually use two different systems to do spinning, one of which is inside a link building machine called EZArticleLinkwhich I have  shared with you to some extent last month and the other is called appropriately, the Best Spinner.

The newest version, the 3.0 version has just been released, and at a reduced price of just $47 a year. A real bargain for such a powerful tool.

There are a lot of other software systems out there that use The Best Spinner as a part of their internal operations. The biggest and baddest of which is SENukeX, which allows me to magnify the reach of my link building by helping automate the process of sending out spun copy to the world with ease.

I mention SENukeX, because it is the top of the line system and could have paired up with any other spinner it wanted to, but choose The Best Spinner, simply because it is the best spinner.

If you understand the power of spinning articles, and are willing to learn how to do it the quickest and easiest way, I encourage you to get your own copy of The Best Spinner.

Your alternative is to go to Fiverr, and get someone to spin your articles for you for five bucks each. Most of them, use the Best Spinner although I can’t claim to know that they all do.

So if you like to do your own thing, or expect to need more than 10 articles spun a year, the best bet is the Best Spinner.

I use it, inside SENukeXand on its own.

I also use the EZ Articles service as well, but it’s coding is different making it harder to use outside EZArticleLink.  That’s why I suggest you get the Best Spinner, unless you already are a member of EZArticleLink, and even then if you are going to upgrade to the power of SENukeX at anytime in the coming year.

Good Tools are essential to long term success online. The Best Spinner is one of the best tools.

How I Use ezArticleLink – A Practical Guide

Just a quick heads up on ezArticleLink, the price for Gold Membership will be going up soon, ie on September 16. If you are considering upgrading your free Silver membership to Gold do so now.

The key to success online is to outsource as many tasks as possible and yet retain control over quality.  Article Marketing is an excellent way to build backlinks which in turn is the primary way to raise your various web properties in the search engine results. We want to get top ranking because that gets us free traffic we do not need to pay for and even better, keeps that traffic coming week after week, and year after year – if we mind out p’s & q’s.

But some one has to write those articles, someone should spin those articles and then you need to get them distributed widely to generate those backlinks and not just to no name sites, but sites that have some real link juice to matter to Google.

Now some people say they can write articles in 5-10 minutes. It takes me an hour minimum.  So while I still do write a fair number of articles myself, I have taken to using services like or even fiverr and I’ve been advised that 99centarticles is also a good resource for getting articles written.

My favorite is Needanarticle, but it has a monthly subscription fee that while low, may make the others a better choice for those of you who tend to dabble a bit.

Once you have an article or say 5, (I like to do chunks of five articles) the next step is to spin them. One of the best spinners out there is called TheBestSpinner which I use in conjunction with SEONuke a highpower backlink software tool, that is in the advanced category and relatively expensive.

I can use that tool to quickly generate spun copies of articles and while speedy, it does tend to result in some convoluted articles with a bit of pidgeon English or worse.

If I want a cleaner and more readable spun article, I go to ezArticleLink.  The spinner here requires more hands on effort, but after a bit of experience using it, I’ve been able to spin articles in about 15 minutes.

The results actually read well and I am not embarrassed to put my name to them, which I consider a real plus.

Now while 15 minutes doesn’t seem like too much to devote, I have largely switched to letting ezArticleLinks cadre of spinners do the work for me.  For $3 and article They will spin the article in a day or so. I then post the article, and it starts building backlinks to my chosen site using the three keywords I have designated per article. As a Gold member I am guaranteed 300 such backlinks dripped over time, whcih is nice because it is more natural and less likely to upset the Google gods.

As a Gold member, I also get 100 bonus links for every article I post which I can direct to any site I choose, whether I have it set up on ezArticleLink or not.

So the equation now looks like thsi for me. I buy five articels for about $30 +/- put them on ezArticleLink and get them to do the spinning for another $15 for five articles for a total outlay of about $45. From that I get at least 2000 backlinks that I can direct to sites that I want to rank on the search engines that are dirpped out over time. Better yet as a gold member the articles keep getting added to more and more sites well beyond the 300 minimum for an indefinite period which means that my site will continue to get new backlinks long into the future which will help keep in on the top of the rankings.

If I am in a highly competitive niche that needs more backlinks, I just run another set of five article s every month or two until I dominate the niche.

This is certainly not the only way to do this. But it is an effective way, that is relatively cheap and very effective.

If you are starting out and on a limited budget, you can of course join for free, write you own article and spin them yourself.  I thinks everyone should do this at first actually so you learn what and how the system works. But as you pick up some cashflow, it make sense to focus on building your business and not doing these more mundane tasks. This is a lesson some of us do it ourselvers need to learn. It took me far to long to move to this model of subbing out tasks, and acting as a general contractor, but I promise you it is the way to go. And ezArticleLink is a great tool to have to get your backlinking done.

Check it out.

PS: I will tell you it took me some effort to learn the esArticleLink system when I first started. They have tutorial videos, but I needed to really focus on them to get properly set up at first. If you have trouble – do persist. You will get it and it will pay off for you once you master the system

Unlimited “Authority” Backlinks – Article Marketing At Its Best

I blew it… I purchased a gold level membership in  EZarticleLink a while back, started to use it and then after a bit of trial and effort promptly forgot about it.

Recently, I’ve been surprised at the success I was having with one of my blogs was doing, despite pretty much ignoring it.  It was the one blog  I was working on when I joined EZarticleLink

I am now completely resold on it, now that I now am in a better position to see the results.

I have long known about the power and value of backlinks.  That’s one reason  I have been so fond of  SE NUKE X,  While not as powerful or flexible as SE Nuke, EZarticleLink is capable of producing a ton of good authority backlinks  for a lot less money than SE Nuke.

I still love SE Nuke and consider it my primary tool to get my chosen sites ranked well in the search engines.  Still, I found myself spending several days last week working with EZArticleLink.  I think the combination will rock.

It may be a good option for those of you into article marketing, but not quite ready to pay for the higher cost SE Nuke.

Now be aware that both programs require a bit of a learning curve.  But once you got it, they are simple to use and very powerful.  The EZArticleLink has a Gold and Silver Version.  The Silver Memberhsip is Free, but I paid up and grabbed the Gold Version and  I am really I did. The perks of the paid version have paid off for me already.

Articles For Backlinks – Using Articles For SEO Purposes

The primary goal of writing articles for SEO purposes is to generate as many backlinks as possible to your web site or blog post.

Creating articles for backlinks is a long term strategy that will generate traffic to your site from people who happen to read your articles and come to your site for more information. This traffic can be substantial, if your article is attractive enough to get a lot of people, or even just one person with a large following to reprint your article on their site.

More powerful in the long run is the value of the backlinks these reprints generate. Every article directory that carries your article will generate a backlink to you, and thus help raise your sites ranking on the search engines.  That’s why some people use article submission services like Content Crooner to get their article posted on as many different article directories as possible.

Since many of these article directories have moderate to high page rank status, these are often valuable links.

The better the article itself, the more likely that it will then be reprinted on other blogs, ezines, etc.  And that is where writing articles for SEO really pays off.

Whether you have posted in many or few article directories, your goal is to get as many of these other blogs and ezines to post your article as possible.  To do so, you need to provide interesting topics for people to read.  Seems simple, and yet a lot of articles people post online are BORING, or pointless.

People go to the internet most frequently to find information. And while you may be mostly interested in selling them something as part of your business, that’s not what your article should be about.

For example, if you are a building contractor that specializes in remodeling bathrooms, you would be better off writing about new trends in barrier free tubs and showers for the graying baby boomer population.  An anecdote about Mrs. Brown who was having trouble getting into and out of the tub, will be interesting to thousands of Mrs. Browns and their children.

This potential interest by potential readers is the secret to getting other people to reprint your article. The editors and bloggers you want to reprint your articles are looking for material their readers will appreciate.

While your market may be local, the interest in your topic is more global, so you may get reprints from bloggers around the world. Their readers may be thousands of miles away from your market, but since you are writing articles for SEO purposes that doesn’t matter to you.

Your targeted web site is getting the backlinks you want, and they in turn will help you raise your standing in the search engines. Since you compete locally, you don’t need to have more backlinks than anyone else, you need to have more backlinks than your local competitors.

And in most fields, that is still relatively easy to do. Thus when a local Mrs. Brown starts searching for a barrier free shower or tub, the odds are better that your website will appear on the first page, where she may actually see it.  And that’s when the payoff of creating articles for backlinks begins.

Article Marketing – A Backbone Strategy

You want your web page to be ranked at the top of the search engines when your customer types in keywords relevant to your business.

While you can buy your way to the top using pay per click advertising, it’s more productive and quite feasible for you to move to the top of the various search engines if you apply the optimization tactics we’ve discussed over the past month.

Now some keywords will be harder than others, but if you are serving a local market, and use geographical keywords as I have suggested, it should be possible for most of you to get to the first page, if not the top listing.

The way to cement yourself into that top ranking is via back links, and while there are lots of ways to generate backlinks, the most powerful over the long haul is article marketing.

While you and I use the internet to market goods and services, most people use it to find information. And Google in particular caters to this need for information above your and my crass mercantile interests.  Article marketing helps us turn that on its ear.

A good article not only provides critical back links that will help boost us in the search engine results, it brands us as a resource to those who look for information online.  It conveys to us “expert” status and good will. This credibility will serve us well when we finally get the customers attention at a buying point.

Our first step is to cover a topic well in the form of multiple articles exploring all aspects of our product line.  Then we post these to the article directories where they can be picked up by bloggers and ezine editors.  While they are getting something free from us, when they republish our articles they are actually trolling for customers for us.

So while we advocate article marketing for the immense value we can derive from the back links it can generate, we also love the traffic it sends us. And not only do we get traffic, we get educated targeted traffic from prospective customers who already know that they want what we have.

That makes our sales job a breeze.

The value of article marketing is so great, that I have decided to start a new blog dedicated to the topic. It is called Article Marketing Hint. I hope you will take a moment to visit it and consider subscribing to the RSS Feed.

I already have a number of posts up, and have several more planned. I will of course discuss the topic here from time to time as well.  The url is

Article Writing is the Key to Building Google Ranking

If you are in a competitive field, and are unable to use my geographical long tail keyword approach to gain top ranking on Google, you need to bring out the big guns. And the best way to do that is with Article marketing.

There is an art to article marketing. You need to focus on your keywords in your article title and in the body of your article. But as important, you need to write a worthwhile article that a blog or ezine editor will want to share with their readership.

You also need to pay attention to your resource box. This is particularly important to you, for this is where your payoff rests.

Finally, you need to get your article launched on as many article directories as you can with a special effort to get it to targeted directories that serve your niche.

I have just acquired rights to a new eBook called Winning the Article Marketing Game. In addition to the eBook, I have acquired master resale rights, which means that not only can I sell you a copy of the eBook, I can transfer to you the rights to sell it yourself.

If you decide to buy it, you will not only get the download, but also a sales page you can use to market the book as well.

This is a great way to get good information that you can profit from and the ability to profit from reselling the book.
