Really Great Video - You have Homework!

Right I have some homework for you. I know I have written about this before but in case you missed it I wanted to go through it again here it is again. You know how you comeacross all those sales pages that promise some secret loophole that will glue your site to the number one page rank or send hundreds of people to your site within days of buying it...but you never manage how to set it up?

Lies. It's all lies.
There is only one absolute foolproof unchanging you can't get it wrong truth

Content + links = $$

Not quite that simple but that's the picture. 

Your own content plus your links to your sales page equals ka-ching. 

However, there is a catch.

You can't just go around slapping any ol' content into your blogs and sites. If you were to stuff your webpages with duplicate then Google will actually penalize you. 

If the content sites like HubPages Squidoo, Ezinearticles find duplicate content they will remove it (and there goes your backlink) and they can close your account without word or warning.

So why is content so important?

Google uses robots called crawlers to search through your website or blog. They basically follow the links from one webpage to another. You need to have content so that Google knows what your website is about. 

Backlinks are another important piece in the SEO puzzle. Backlinks that have been made with appropriate anchor text and written inside the body of content is always going to get the thumbs up from Google rather than links that say Click Here scattered randomly around the Internet.


Now these have been around for years but it's only recently that the quality has really taken off. If you have been burnt in the past by spinners promising the world then you will be impressed with this one..I actually have it myself (first night I got it I stayed up all night and made two new websites!)

So here's your homework (no...I don't care if you buy it or not) I want you to listen carefully to the video because it has some really important clues into how to get your pages ranked with the search engines.
