    I have three blogs that I am working to blend together into a network. The three of them are actually in my pro.

    The Law of success is the main blog.

    Is it Ok for me to do what im doing with the links on the side to inspirational quotes and links to others pages within my site.

    How does the law of success look over all?

    Just by looking at it is there anything fundamentally wrong, or something you believe I can improve on.

    Thanks in advance guys
    Yours truly

    They look good, Loomis.... actually , I think they are very well written and easy to read.

    If you have not done so already - I would go and write articles on these subjects and backlink to your blogs. Submit to places like goarticles ezinearticles, etc... write a few articles a day and you will be amazed at the amount of visitors to your blog.

    Do you have a stat counter so you can track your visitors?? You can get a free one at statcounter... I think it works with a blog, but not sure... if you can put that on your blog, it will tell you where your visits are coming from, how long they stay... all kinds of cool stuff![​IMG]

    I agree- submitting articles (don't forget squidoo and hubpages) will bring quality traffic to your blogs [​IMG]

    I havent used squidoo and hubpages much at all yet.
    But I do use technoriti, mybloglog,stumbleupon, and digg.

    How much am I losing out.

    I updated the law of success. Whatcha think?

    Hi Loomis,

    Squidoo and Hub Pages are more like deluxe article directories whereas Stumble Upon and Digg are more like communal book marking sites.

    I'm sure you can imagine the difference.

    I suggest that you look into Squidoo and Hub Pages. You'll be glad if you do so.

    I hadn't heard about squidoo. Thanks!!!![​IMG]

    I've heard it's better to have good content but sometimes I see a lot spam sites at the top of yahoo and google.

    How can I get real high-linking traffic?

    There's a Squidoo forum here where you can learn great tips and advice.

    Have real good content. Consider writing articles and partcipate in forum discussions. While writing and submitting quality articles builds backlinks for your site, participating in forums can give some immediate traffic and builds credibility.

    I have been doing article submissions,forum posting, social markers like digg and delicious.

    My problem now tho is im still not seeing huge results.
    I seem to always get mixed views on Search engines and how they weigh keywords.

    I currently am using this set of keywords
    The Law of Success, Napoleon Hill, Smart Goals, self confidence, Keys to Success

    But I would Like to use this set
    Keywords:The Law of Success,Napoleon Hill, Smart Goals, self confidence, Keys to Success,Think and Grow Rich, Financial freedom, fortunes, wealth, happiness, growth, greatest achievers, seventeen principles of success, napoleon hills message, The Secret

    I havent switched to that set because Ive been told that you should keep the keywords atleast somewhat close to 8. Any advice or help anyone, youve all been kind thus far, feel bad for asking more

    Hi Loomis,

    These things take time so try to be patient. Rome wasn't built in 3 and a half months ;)

    I haven't done any keyword research on your phrases from either of your sets. However, at a quick glance I would say that every phrase it probably too competitive.

    Part of the reason is that you've chosen popular phrases. The other reason is that most of them are short and general (especially in the second half of your second set - "do not try this at home").

    If I had to guess, I'd say that you either didn't do any keyword research, you don't know enough about keyword research, or you don't know how to understand the results of your keyword research quite well enough.

    I suggest you go to this free keyword tool and plug your keywords in one at a time. Pay special attention to demand and competition.

    You'll want your competition to be below average for the most part and you will want demand for each term as well. How much demand you should shoot for depends upon who you ask. Answers will vary. I'll leave that up to you and others to answer.

    https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal

    I think you'll find the the competition is higher than average on at least 80% of your phrases (and it wouldn't surprise me if it's higher). You won't get an actual number for the competition at this point in time, but you will see a bar.

    Let us know how it goes.

    ~Newbie Shield~

    PS. In regards to your SE comment, you are correct - different SEs have different algos.

    Thanks a ton, I did some keyword research, atleast what I believe is keyword research [​IMG]

    I think this will work much much better, I used the ad words tool as well [​IMG]

    Loomis,

    I took a quick look at your phrases by using the keyword tool in the link I provided above.

    Almost all of your phrases are far too competitive. The remaining phrases don't have enough demand.

    salesmanship - too competitive
    the law of success - too competitive but might rank in time
    napoleon hill rich - not enough demand
    how to set goals - too competitive
    improve self confidence - too competitive
    think and grow rich book - not enough but small trickle
    attract wealth - too competitive

    I did explain how to use the tool in my previous entry - enough demand but competition should be below 50%.

    I looked and none of your choices qualify.

    If you want to rank and compete for "think and grow rich book" change it to "think and grow rich audio book". There is enough demand and the competition is low enough to compete. You might see around 3 visitors a day from that phrase when averaged over a month. Believe it or not, it may be worth it.

    When I say 3 a day, I mean highly targeted traffic that has a reasonable chance of converting. You may get more, but less than half a percent of that would convert on that phrase.

    It won't be much, but it's the only change I can recommend. Keep your pages for the other terms if you've written them. You might rank for some of them eventually. Otherwise, if you haven't written them, don't waste your time.

    In case you didn't know, "Advertiser Competition" is competition and "Approx Avg Search Volume" is demand.

    For competition, the green should be less then half of the bar but it's best if there is very little green or no green at all. For demand, it is up to you to decide upon a "good range". Did you understand it this way when you did your research?

    Furthermore, though the Google Keyword Tool is a mainstay, it shouldn't be your only tool or method for keyword research. Use other tools and do your footwork by typing the phrases in Google. Be sure to visit the sites belonging to the competition, and so on.

    Research in every way you can think of. Consider purchasing some paid tools. But just remember that tools are tools and nothing besides. You have to know the tools and what to do with the results. Then you have to do a lot of footwork.

    Consider using:

    rich by napoleon hill
    how to attract wealth
    what are goals
    think and grow rich mp3 (you'll have to offer the download)
    napoleon hill audio (you'll have to offer the audio)
    think and grow rich audio (you'll have to offer the audio)

    Those phrases aren't very good but they will at least draw steady targeted traffic and you'll be able to compete.

    If I were you, I wouldn't work on implementation right now. It's clear that you need to learn quite a bit more about keyword research. You are putting the cart before the horse and you're not going to go anywhere.

    Learn first, then try.

    Make sure you know the fundamentals well before you do anything at all or you'll just get tired and frustrated. Don't focus on the money or you won't be able to see clearly.

    In any case, I hope you do well,

    ~Newbie Shield~

    You have same keywords description for all the pages on your blog! If you can't change them page wise, consider getting a self-hosted wordpress blog.

    The linking is fine. I think you did a great job with the adsense...it blends really well.

    Keyworddiscovery.com also has a great keyword tool. The adsense tool provides more general terms. You can get more specific one at this website.

    I have updated alot of things and even changed my domain name over to http://www.napoleonhillslaw.com, which will be up in a few days.

    I also changed my keywords and I believe that will be working out great soon as well.

    Check out the site and let me know what you think?

    I also started, www.thinkingandgrowingrich.blogspot.com
    Alot of this site will support the law of success with links back to it, and its own content to promote blogging to the bank affiliate and think and grow rich amazon books.

    I feel like I this blog has been kicked out of google, because of creating to many backlinks to early. Im no where, except articles i use linking to this site :/.

    Is there anything I can do or anyway if anyone can tell for me?

    and why is it when you search site:www.thelawofsuccess.blogspot.com it only comes up with one link to my main page. I have a ton of articles :/

    Yes squidoo and hubs are fine - I also am looking at some software to automate putting comments on these and getting really good backlinks from top ranking hub pages - watch this space....

    Try to get your blogs listed in blogcatalog dot com. You will get lots of exposure there as well.
