Late Night Internet Marketing with Mark Mason -- Affiliate Marketing Tips, Online Business Advice, Email Marketing and SEO
Tracking the ranking position of the keywords for your websites is a critical part of any affiliate marketing business. In this episode, I talk about my personal solution for tracking web site rankings — Rank Tracker from Link-Assistant.com
. I use the tool to track website rankings in conjunction with a captcha solver, a dedicated “always on” server and some VPN software. It's a cool solution that allows me to track as many keywords as I like for a small fixed cost. We also take some listener feedback during this episode — just how many affiliate sites do I have anyway?
Here are the highlights of the items I have shared in today’s episode:
* Using broad hash tags, using the Click to Tweet tool and other quick Twitter tips for you to increase your discoverability and generate buzz for your internet presentations and marketing conferences,
* Answers to our mystery caller’s questions and then some: Can small affiliate sites still be successful? How much money am I making in my sites? How many websites am I currently managing? What is the right number of sites for you to have? What strategies can you apply to manage these sites effectively and efficiently?
* Samples of external tools you can use to keep track of your keywords to constantly improve your sites, understand where your traffic is coming from and know how you are ranking in the search engines,
* The challenges and prohibitions which you should watch out for in subscribing to rank tracking services including the steep rates, not scaling well and the accumulating recurring costs,
* About Rank Tracker, my recommended tool for you which is part of the SEO power suite, and it’s amazing capabilities and features, and
* The benefits and roadblocks of running Rank Tracker in Mac Mini servers and how to mitigate these challenges through ‘HMA’, a virtual private networking software.
