I have written several posts in this forum and they have all been either questions or complains about some problems with Social Multiplier.

Well, today is different, as I wanted to show the results that I have been getting so far.  Below is a graph with the traffic to my blog:



I started using Social Multiplier on June 30th, and as you can see the traffic has been pretty consistent after that date.  The spike on June 26th was using paid traffic, so please ignore that.  I do not understand the spike in the pageviews that occurred on July 5th, but nevertheless the number of page views has also been growing.  Yesterday was so so, but keep in mind that this is only running one schedule and limiting the software options to keep low the number of followers per day and pins, so as to avoid risks of getting my account banned.  BTW, I have 1 conversion already, so the software is starting to pay by itself.

Have you had similar or better results?  What has been your experience with Social Multiplier?


Thanks Jon and Amin for letting people outside the Learn From Jon site to use this software.
Hi everyone,

I thought that I may share something with you, those who are Excel experts may stop reading just now, no breaking news here - just my humble experience from today.

So, lets get on it.

KS is a great tool, but we all know that results, especially after long term scrapping are various and need to be sorted out in some way.

Here is my short 'tutorial' on how to process gathered data in Excel. Precisely - how to remove unwanted key phrases from the list basing on 'unwanted' word(s).
I'm not an Excel expert by any mean, so I thought few people here may be also interested in some tricky features on how to remove unwanted keywords from the Keyword Snatcher results using Excel.

Ok, so what I'm talking about?

For this example I run few seconds (literally) of scrapping keywords for 'dog training london'



We have got:



As we can see right now, there is few words which aren't really 'money keywords' if you are ranking locally for London.
At first glance they are 'ohio' and 'ontario'. Yet 'south africa' and others. You've got the point.

Copy all the keywords (or download) and open in Excel.



Then click Filters from top menu in Excel



You'll see small arrow at the very first row of your keyword list, and click it.
Next, chose 'Text Filters' -> 'Contains' option



You will see dialog window.
The window will show 'contain' and a field to type in your 'unwanted' word. In our case (let's say) we don't want keywords containing 'ohio' and 'ontario'.
MAKE SURE YOU SELECT 'OR' not 'And'!!!



Type in your unwanted keywords and make sure that you change the operator to 'OR'!
Otherwise it will select only rows containing both 'ohio' and 'ontario' (In that case nothing would be selected, you can believe me).

When you click 'OK', you'll get something like this :



Fine. You are on PC - simply click 'Delete' and congrats! - job done.

If I remember - on Mac it would be Cmd+Backspace, but I'm not sure.

What you see now is your list with some 'gaps'. Those gaps (unless you sorted the list somehow) are empty spaces after deleted keywords. That's fine, everything is ok so far.



To sort it out and make nice and tidy, simply go to the menu and click A->Z icon, with column A (in this case) selected.



Ah, quick tip here. If you want to select only as much rows as exist in the spreadsheet - select cell A1 and click Ctrl-A (like 'select all' in Windows), it should select all your cells with the keywords.

Sorry image doesn't show 'selected' items, but you should end up with something like this:



After removing few more words:



I hope that helps a bit.

Very interesting article - make sure you read ALL the small print and definitely check out any double negatives. Do't say you weren't warned!
Hi guys! I thought I'd share this application I created for myself about a year ago. Now I have an advanced version that I'm selling, but the basic version is pretty nice too. I've used it myself for a long time. It's totally free, I hope the button to the advanced version won't bother you guys too much.

Here's what it does:

As you probably all know, the Article Builder web interface can only generate up to 20 articles at once. If you need more than that, you would have to refresh, start the whole process again, and manually spin the articles together when finished. My little bot automates all that. Here's a little demonstration:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/PafbMyx2FSM&fs=1" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/PafbMyx2FSM&fs=1</a>

You can download it from here:

Code: [Select]

IMPORTANT: Some antivirus programs will detect it as dangerous. It’s false positive!
And that's because of the professional licensing system I'm using! Every time the application is started by the user, the license is checked on the server! This is needed for the automatic updates to work. Some antivirus programs think this kind of behavior is suspicious, that's why they mark it as dangerous. But of course, this is not true, you can safely extract the zip file, and start using it.

If you guys find any bugs, or if it doesn't work on your machine, let me know, and I'll try to fix it for you. Automatic updates are immediately applied when you open the application.

I hope you guys will find it useful, like I did. All the best,
Marton

I hope Jon doesn't mind but I would like to
push a free product from Michael Campbell.

At the moment it's free for a limited time on Amazon ($9.99 after Thursday)

Just go to your local Amazon and do a search for Ultimate Heat Map.

It's on Kindle but don't worry if you haven't got one coz you can always
download the Amazon Kindle Reader for your computer etc

I've used it from the first edition and it could really open your eyes
especially for any newbies doing Adsense etc.

Couple this information with InstantArticleWizard or ArticleBuilder
and you have a powerful combination.

In case you don't know who Michael campbell is and I don't mean the golfer.
He has done marketing work for some of the top corporations in USA.

Check out his bio here http://www.dynamicmedia.com/about/

Hoping this helps

Hi guys,

Some new things afoot with Article Builder.

1. Your daily quota is now 400 instead of 250.

This is due to the constantly growing database and the needs of some of the users.

2. You can now use the API to generate spunspun content that is "spun together" into one big spun document.

See the API button in your account for syntax details.

Have fun!

I recently read a thread at another forum where two members were arguing with each other about what the "best" way to market online is. The thread was rather tempestuous, and provoked me to make a post at that forum that I wanted to share here as well.

Do you want to know the "secret" to success at business? Here you go:

Produce great stuff and sell it to people.

I've made so many mistakes in my business. I've done so many things wrong. I didn't hire help soon enough, I didn't outsource soon enough, I didn't learn how to market like I should have. I didn't read much at all for years, actually.

What I did do was read forums, see what people needed, and build it. After it was built, I listened to what my customers said they wanted it to do. If enough people wanted it, I did it.

Am I successful? I was recently able to create a project for the sole purpose of hiring people in this down economy. So far I've been able to employ about 30 people from it. My goal next year is at least 100 people. To me, true success isn't how much you've gotten for yourself, but how much you've done for others.

I'm not telling you that to brag or make you think I'm some great guy. Quite the opposite! My point is that despite the many, many mistakes I've made on the marketing side of things, I have achieved success beyond my wildest expectations. You can, too.

Don't get me wrong. Marketing is important. If nobody sees your product you won't have any buyers. So you have to get the word out. But getting the word out is so much easier if you have a great product, and you've got a much better shot at long-term success. That's because word of mouth will make up where your marketing skills fall short -- but only if your product stands out above the rest.

So don't worry about the mistakes. You'll make them. I sure did. And don't waste all of your time chasing the "next big thing" or the latest "hot marketing method."  Just remember to always...

Produce great stuff and sell it to people.

Now go get to work.
Matt Cutts, Googles most famous employee representative, put out a video a couple of months ago that said, essentially, that proper spelling and grammar isn't taken into account when ranking pages in Google.

Here's the video (it's less than 3 minutes long):



Now, for people who distribute badly spun content for the sake of building back links, this might be a bit of information they are thrilled to learn. "Awesome!" they say, "I can distribute garbage and get my sites ranked that way without fear!" I've read comments to this effect here on the forum. "Its just for back links, so who cares?"

While that may seem to be true on the surface, you need to think a little deeper and realize that making sure your content is high quality--even just for getting back links--is very important.

First, pay attention to the fact that Cutts said spelling and grammar isn't used when ranking pages. That does not mean it isn't used in judging how much link value is passed from a page. Is it? Maybe, maybe not, but it's certainly possible.

Even if it's not used at all in the algorithm, however, there's still a couple of very compelling reasons to keep the quality high in back linking content. Remember that Google employs a large number of human reviewers in addition to using their algorithm.

If a human reviewer takes a look at your back links pattern and sees a lot of garbage content, your site is only a few clicks away from a ban or demotion. The better your site starts to rank, the higher the odds are that it will get a human review. I can't tell you how many times I've seen this happen with customers who were finally making some good headway in the search results, only to have it ripped away for "no apparent reason." A human reviewer was the likely reason.

Another thing to remember when creating content for back links is that every page that links to your site is an advertisement for your site. It's true that few people will see the trashy, badly spun content being used to link to your site, since those pages don't usually rank well themselves. But a few will, and those individuals will likely never buy from you. Why should they trust a site willing to put out trash like that? If you're in this for the long haul, don't risk your business's reputation with trashy back link content.

Finally, remember that once you start to rank well in the search results, your competition will start to analyze how you got there, looking for anything they can to legitimately get you axed by Google. If they see that you've flooded Google with trashy, spammy back link content they will smile gleefully as they submit spam reports to Google about your site. If enough reports get made, uh-oh, here comes that human reviewer...

Yes, creating quality content for your back links is more time consuming than generating trash. If you use a spinner, taking the time to properly choose good synonyms or rewrite full sentences or paragraphs is challenging (though it still saves you massive amounts of time in the long run). But it's an investment in the future of your business. If you would be concerned about a Google reviewer seeing the content, it's best not to use it.

Besides, who knows if Google will figure out how to address the challenges of including spelling and grammar in their algorithm? The next "Panda"-like update could include changes that sink the trash-based ship!

Be proud of what you do and the content you create. In the long run you'll be much better off.

Please post your thoughts, comments and questions to this thread.
