Clickbank Bonus Dominator

Ok so I know this may be a bit overkill but here is my third post today. I just found this product, Clickbank Bonus Dominator,?and thought that it is a great idea for anyone that makes their money by selling products that are marketed through the Clickbank affiliate network?or another affiliate network that allows upselling (most?networks really). It is a very simple tool that allows anyone selling products online to add an optional ‘upsell’ to the payment process easily and automatically.

If you have ever bought digital products online you have probably seen this sort of thing and maybe even considered buying one of the upsell optionals. These upsell optionals are the value added options that are offered when you are going through the payment process. If you already add in these options manually you will know how easy it is to increase your margins by anywhere upto about 50% without much trouble.

This tool allows you to have the added income of these upsells whilst taking out all of the work meaning you have more time to spend on creating sales pages. There really isnt a massive amount more to say about it, oh wait yeah there is. It is currently being sold for $97, while $97 is not likely to break the bank it is slightly high for such a simple (yet very effective) tool.

If you are currently making a bit of money by selling products online you can probably justify the $97 cost for this but for those starting out with affiliate networks you will be better off finding a good niche and running with that, when you have some regular sales coming in then definitely I would advise this product to increase you’re conversion rate and income from each conversion made.

If you have any hands on experience with this product or just a question about it leave a comment for us to let us know what you think.

Rank4.net news

As many of you may already know I have a close connection with the Rank4?team and have been testing their ranking tool and some of their new tools.

History of Rank4
Rank4 was originally meant to be a subscription based indexing and ranking tool based around many tried and tested practices of social bookmarking submission, directory submission, link baiting, search engine baiting and other proprietary techniques. While this aspect of the membership site is still intact it is changing its focus slightly away from simple indexing and ranking tool to a fully blown community site with many tools for generating and scraping content for a vareity of platforms.

Current status
It is currently treading water with the Rank4 tool making sure that all facets of it are working and stay current and expanding on the nature of the system by rotating through hundreds of accounts with hundreds of link baring websites.

The interesting part of the site is the new tools that will be available to members they are now going to be offering a content generation system for forums and blogs based around Yahoo Answers and article sites (such as ezinearticles and many more). They have a downloadable script in the works that is a PHP based server side script that mimmicks the features of PRStorm, the bonus of this is that many servers have very quick connections and it will search for sites to spam based on keywords you input rather than a standard list of overused URLs.

Another tool in its very early stages of development is the auto commenting script based around a common blog plugin that allows a very easy way to generate hundreds to thousands of instantly approved blog comments, again based around keywords that you a targeting rather than a static list of URLs.

Conclusion
While Rank4 has been disappointing with its constant delays and lack of any real press releases (other than the inside scoop by myself) it is showing some real promise, hopefully I can get my hands on the other tools (Yaho Answers content poster for forums is fully working and tested by myself) to test and will get back to you guys to let you know how it is all looking.

Until I have seen the whole package I will reserve total judgement as a lot can happen with the Rank4 tools techniques in a matter of weeks let alone months. If you want to be the first to know when Rank4 opens its doors go there and sign up now, it is free and they wont send any mail that isnt related to opening its doors.

If you want to know anything more about Rank4 leave a comment below and I will make sure that it is answered at some point by them, they do check here fairly regularly.

Quick Update Post

Filed under: On-Page SEO Tools — admin @ 7:41 am

Ok before I start, I know I know, I am a totally lazy git when it has come to updating this blog. I started this blog up at a time when I really wasnt able to keep it updated and to let everyone know what is going on in the world of SEO software. Basically my first home has become a total work hog and has meant me spending all day everyday for the past 4 months or so rebuilding. That is coming to an end soon and I will be back here making good honest reviews of software.

Not only will I be updating with reviews very soon but I will also be venturing into tips on how to get more backlinks, convert sales more consistently and finding niches as a way to make up for everything. I hope you guys stick around and will leave me some comments on the topics you would be most interested in reading about.

I will be following up this post with a little update on what is going on with the good people over at Rank4.net. For those that don’t know I have been an integral team tester for their software and have been seeing the good things that they are creating before their big launch (which has been delayed for a long time now as they have many more value added tools to release).

?Anyway, I’ll be back soon. Leave comments about what you want to know about.

Quick website review – Pingler.com

A while ago I was checking around to see what new tools there are out there and came across an interesting new(ish) site that allows you to enter in your website and have it be pinged to a whole host of aggregator sites. I mentioned how powerful using these sites was in my last post but without some jiggery pokery only blogs and forums will post updates to these sites.

Pingler.com is both easy to use and very quick for what it does. Pinging WILL bring more traffic and can result in a few backlinks, if lucky, so being able to do this so quickly and easily really is a benefit for those that cannot afford membership services or applications that will do this for you.

As far as being a complete tool there are a ton of applications and services out there that do the?same or better?but most are paid for or more restrictive. If I were to be very picky I would ask that they crawl your site and ping deep pages without the need for submitting deep pages yourself, this can take a lot of time but is worth while. As this is a free non-membership site I think it is a great tool and should be used by all SEOs looking for a bit of traffic but cannot afford a professional tool like SQUIRT, Rank4(still in BETA)?or bookmarking demon.

In my opinion if you arent using pingler (or some other pinging tool) you are missing one big trick in the big picture of SEO. Check it out before they change their mind and make it a members only site.

Getting the most from your WP autoblogs

I initially was going to make this post part of my last post but thought that it would serve better as its own entity. I want to explain some of the best practices as far as using the WP autoblog plugin?goes. In the last post I mentioned about adding lots and lots of feeds well one place I always manage to find lots of feeds is directly from google, yahoo and feedburner.

You can use the addresses below, exchanging the word KEYWORD for a URL safe keyphrase:
http://feeds.technorati.com/search/KEYWORD
http://www.bloglines.com/search?q=KEYWORD&ql=en&s=f&pop=l&news=m&n=100&format=rss
http://search.msn.com/results.aspx?q=KEYWORD&format=rss
http://www.blogdigger.com/search?q=KEYWORD&sortby=date&type=rss
http://blogsearch.google.com/blogsearch_feeds?hl=en&q=KEYWORD&ie=utf-8&num=100&output=rss
http://news.search.yahoo.com/news/rss?p=KEYWORD&ei=UTF-8&fl=0&x=wrt

If you replace KEYWORD with your keyphrase and then add these feeds to your plugin config page you will have 6 feeds, do this for 10 keywords and you will have 60 feeds right there, very useful if you wanna speed up setup of this script.

Pimp up your blog, leaving your WP installation standard looking and working will leave you open to scrutiny by the SEs so for the sake of a couple of minutes download a new theme, possibly something with ad spaces, and get it uploaded. New themes can give better CTRs and even be better laid out as far as SEO is concerned, if a theme is the difference between 10k pages indexed and 100 pages indexed it is worth changing.

More plugins, have a look around at some SEO plugins, these can really help with your site structure and lead to more optimised SEO and inner linking. Get an auto commenter, this will help to build variety in your inner linking of your blog posts and could also help to keep a visitor on your blog. Mix up your autoblogs with some other sources of posts, maybe use a plugin that auto posts some affiliate feeds or youtube vids, anything you can think of to give some variation and/or more income.

XMLRPC update services

This is so important I thought I would bold it. If you are unaware what this part of your WP admin area is all about it gives you the facility to announce your new posts to lots of blog aggregators that get huge amounts of traffic, think social bookmarking sites but just for blogs. In your “Settings” area under “Writing” in your WP admin area you will see a text area at the bottom of the page labelled “Update Services”. In this box you should add as many XMLRPC update services as you can find, it takes no effort to add these sites once you have a good list so you may as well stick in a huge bunch of them.

What you dont have a list? You dont know where to find them? Ok I will give you my personally list right here, it is what I use on all of my blogs and find that it is a decent list that works fine for me:

http://blogsearch.google.com/ping/RPC2
http://api.feedster.com/ping
http://api.moreover.com/ping
http://api.moreover.com/RPC2
http://api.my.yahoo.com/rss/ping
http://bblog.com/ping.php
http://blog.goo.ne.jp/XMLRPC
http://blogdb.jp/xmlrpc/
http://bulkfeeds.net/rpc
http://coreblog.org/ping/
http://ping.bitacoras.com
http://ping.blo.gs/
http://ping.bloggers.jp/rpc/
http://ping.cocolog-nifty.com/xmlrpc
http://ping.fakapster.com/rpc
http://ping.feedburner.com
http://ping.syndic8.com/xmlrpc.php
http://ping.weblogalot.com/rpc.php
http://pinger.blogflux.com/rpc
http://pingoat.com/goat/RPC2
http://rpc.blogrolling.com/pinger/
http://rpc.britblog.com
http://rpc.icerocket.com:10080/
http://rpc.pingomatic.com/
http://rpc.tailrank.com/feedburner/RPC2
http://rpc.technorati.com/rpc/ping
http://rpc.weblogs.com/RPC2
http://rpc.wpkeys.com
http://topicexchange.com/RPC2
http://www.bitacoles.net/ping.php
http://www.blogdigger.com/RPC2
http://www.blogoon.net/ping/
http://www.blogpeople.net/servlet/weblogUpdates
http://xping.pubsub.com/ping

To use this list simply highlight it, copy it and then paste it into your “Update Services” box in your admin and you are good to go. If you have anymore of these update services I will happily add it to my public list after checking it out.

Well I think that is pretty much it for now, I will get a couple more posts out by the end of the week hopefully and see how it goes, I was hoping to get a more recent preview of Rank4 out soon as they have been adding more things and fixing a few bugs so there should be something good to talk about there. Also I will be having an exclusive look at a new open source website engine that is very uncompetitive at the moment, I cant mention much but I think this could be the social bookmarking of 2009.

Take it easy guys
