YouTube Video Ranking on Google

My Video Got Ranked Number 4 in One Day

I put a video on my YouTube channel for Christmas and it ranked number 4 on Google for my long-tail keyword in just one day. I have no idea how long it is going to stay there, but I should be getting some traffic from people who are looking for this doll.

My First Book - Google Ranking for It

I published my very first book on Amazon Kindle, Create Space, Barnes and Nobel, and Lulu.com. It is called Better Thinking for Better Chess and is based upon a directed study that I did back in 1988. It was part of my BA in Psychology program. I decided to look up the phrase "Better Thinking for Better" in Google and I got four of the top ten spots for that phrase. I also have my pictures showing next to two of my listings. I have not yet checked to see how well I rank for other search terms. I also noticed that when I did a search for "Chess Psychology" on Amazon that my book was a suggested item on the page of books that match that term.

Here is a screen capture of what I found two days ago:

Google results for "Better Thinking for Better"

Pretty cool, huh?

Thoughts on Google Page Rank and Alexa Traffic Rank

I have been using Traffic Travis Pro version 4 for a few months now and have been tracking how my sites rank on various key words and phrases. I am also tracking the number of backlinks, unique domains, etc. My chess site has a Google Page Rank of 3 for the home page and 2 for some of the internal pages. It has an Alexa Traffic Rank of 11,557,081. I am tracking 72 key words and phrases on all of the English speaking search engines. I have 1,505 backlinks from 642 unique IP's and 974 unique domains. Many of my key words and phrases rank in the top five on more than one search engine. Yet, the site is not earning any money! I get a few clicks on the AdSense ads that earn chump change, but the Amazon affiliate commissions so far have been a little over $13! It seems that my site visitors are freebie seekers that will not actually buy anything! I admit that this site started out as a hobby site, but I recently upgraded my hosting plan to 5000MB lifetime and renewed the domain name to the year 2020. This site will be around for a while! Now that I have invested all of this money into my chess site I would like to earn enough in affiliate commissions to cover the costs of this site.

Many Internet Marketing gurus want their customers to believe that if they buy products telling them how to rank well for relevant key words and phrases that they will earn good money in some micro niche. Maybe! Chess definitely is not one of them! The trick is to find a niche in which people are actually willing to spend money, and most gurus will not give that information up!

So, don't waste your time, energy or money getting good rankings for keywords and phrases that no one will look for or only freebie seekers use! Do not build backlinks to pages that don't sell something, allow people to opt in to your list or download something that may go viral. Traffic is useless if these people are not buyers!

Spamming Yahoo Answers with some push button software is a good way to get banned by the search engines and building product review sites that no one actually visits is also a waste of time, energy and money! So, please do not buy useless make money with three mouse clicks software like I did! Haley Milano is a paid actress who pretends to be a stripper that coerced some geeky programmer into making some software for her to get rich on the Internet. I wasted about $37 on this scam and it was too late to get my money back by the time I realized that her software does not work!

Kim Roach Is a Traffic Queen

One of my favorite bloggers online is Kim Roach over at BuzzBlogger.com.

Kim is one of those rare finds in the IM space that consistently provides
tremendous value in everything she does.

She's a country gal at heart but don't let that fool you...

She's been beating out many of the big-name gurus with
her southern belle charm.

In fact, many refer to her as the 'Traffic Queen'. Which from
what I've seen is certainly a worthy title.

At the ripe 'ol age of 25 she's managed to unlock
the secrets to massive traffic...testing and tweaking
new traffic strategies... plus adding her own little
twists and tricks.

And unlike most other marketers, she spends most of her
time in the trenches, locked up in the marketing laboratory -
cookin' up more juicy traffic goodness.

But every once in a while she surfaces back up into the
real world to share her latest findings.

If you'd like to see what she's been cookin' up in
the lab lately go now to:

Traffic Dash Board

Kim's has unlocked her very best traffic strategies in her latest
product called 'The Traffic Dashboard'. It's a complete training
center that contains over 20 of Kim's top traffic getting methods.

Thes traffic techniqes are really quite unique as you can see
for yourself by taking a look inside the member's area...

Traffic Dashboard - a sneak peek inside...

Inside 'The Traffic Dashboar' Kim shows you how to go from nothing
to over 3,000+ subscribers in just 30 days. (all in step-by-step detail).

You literally point and click your way to increased traffic with Kim's
unique dashboard design. (as seen above)

You have to actually TRY to mess this one up! Because the point-and-click
learning system forces you to take action.

Here's a sneek peak at what you'll find inside...

An underground tool for extracting exactly
where your competitor's website traffic is
coming from. This is like being given the
keys to the kingdom. (I'm really surprised
Kim is sharing this little gem)

(If you thought Alexa was cool imagine knowing EXACTLY
how much traffic your competitors were getting each day
and knowing exactly where that traffic was coming from.)

"James Bond" tactics for spying on your
competitors and forcing them to hand over
all of their hard-earned, battle-tested,
profit-busting strategies.

A super simple method for cramming your opt-in
list with 200-400 subscribers in a single day...
(and NO this has nothing to do with ad swaps)

A really cool strategy that shows you how to get 10x
MORE traffic from EVERY article you write.

As many of you probably already know, traditional article
marketing is becoming less and less effective. What worked
in 2004 simply doesn't cut it anymore.

So Kim show's you 10 different ways to repurpose your content
for additional traffic and exposure. Use just a couple of the
strategies in this video and you'll have no excuse for not
getting AT LEAST a couple hundred visitors for every article
you publish.

... and that's just the tip of the iceberg!

This thing is packed with over 8 hours of juicy
traffic goodness... NO fluff... NO filler.

With over 8 hours of step-by-step video and
enough how-to information to DESTROY literally
every question, worry and problem you've ever
had in regards to traffic.

A Word of Warning: There's just ONE caveat to this
product. In fact, these traffic methods will NOT work in all
situations. In order for these traffic strategies to reap
their full power - you MUST be creating HIGH QUALITY CONTENT!
(not some auto-generated content that not even your momma would
be proud of...)

If you think you're going to slap together some useless crap,
throw up some auto-generated sites and have thousands of visitors
pouring in...This course is NOT for you.

This training course was created specifically for people who
are looking to build REAL businesses online... People who are
dedicated to providing top-notch value for their visitors,
subscribers, and customers.

This is something Kim stresses a lot, and I agree. If you're
not willing to take the time and effort to put together some
really good content and offer real value, then don't bother
with 'The Traffic Dashboard'. It will just be a waste of time
for you if you don't have good content in place.


If you are dedicated to building a REAL business online and
providing your visitors with REAL VALUE then 'The Traffic
Dashboard' will help you to grow your business 10x faster.

Plus, at an affordable price to boot!

So, if you're ready to turn on the traffic tap, then
click on the link below...

Traffic Dash Board

There are no “tricks”, or “magic traffic buttons” here, just
proven traffic strategies that are designed to generate traffic
as quickly as possible.

Plus, for those of you who are more advanced, Kim combines old
school tactics with new traffic twists and tips that you won't
want to miss...
