Following up on Google’s recent open attack on MyBlogGuest (MGB), one of my writers at WHSR, Luana, interviewed Ann Smarty and took a closer look on your Internet marketing options without Google.
I can so relate to Luana’s article as all my sites were wiped off from Google in 2012 during Penguin updates. My business revenue goes from 5 figures monthly to almost zero.
Yes, from hero to zero, in just a snap of the almighty Google’s finger.
In case you had the same experience – you would appreciate this article like I do.
Some key takeaways from the article:
- Google’s attack on MBG seems irrational to many – Google Analytics blog publishes guest posts without a nofollow too. Do as we say, not as we do; eh?
- Google’s ban is not the end of world – “Forget about Google”, says Ann Smarty.
- To build traffics without Google, Ann suggested: Influencers outreach, content repackaging, and building an email list.
- Some other ways that you can grow your online business without Google include local directory listing, blogger outreach, word-of-mouth marketing, offline event sponsorships, and forums marketing.
- The key point is to learn how to market website like Google doesn’t exist.
- Luana wish everyone can stop acting like Google’s webslave and ‘help bring linking and content creation back in the hands to the real masters – the webmasters’.
Yes, we can’t ignore the fact that most of Internet activities start with a search and Google is simply the most lucrative source of targeted visitors. >Without Google, you’ll have to work a lot more harder and your business will simply grow slower. But a business relying on just one revenue source is simply too risky.
Why do some blogposts go viral on social media; while others just sit at the corner to collect dust?
Not too long ago I read an interesting article +The New Yorker – the author, Maria Konnikova, discusses her study on what topics were most read in the Wall Street Journal. While she couldn’t find a pattern as far as the topics, she did find some interesting connections in how the articles were presented to the reader and which ones seemed to go viral.
Yes, there is a formula in viral-ity.
Emotion, the post presentation and the quality of the story itself are three of the major factors.
