About paraphrasing, or using similar phrases to say the same

This is fresh content on the subject of Synonym Automatic Replacement, using our Synonymizer product.

Paraphrasing arises to the plane of copyright infringement when there is ample nearness amidst an item and a copyrighted source. This may be present when the artistic assertion in an influential lane of the source has been nearly paraphrased, yet if it is a diminutive bit of the source, or when paraphrasing is looser but covers a larger bit of the source or covers “the heart” (the most crucial content).

Good WordPress rankings

WordPress is an interesting platform for ranking articles in Google, because all postings are identical in several structural aspects. There are several plugins in WordPress that add positive factors for SEO purposes.

So far we achieved good rankings with some of our older blogs: DomainGrower and PromotordeSitios (this one in Spanish). However, some postings are very well ranked and others not at all. Why is that? It would be nice to know. And it would be excellent to have a formula for consistent good rankings in WordPress. Continue reading

Domain Development Plans

After 8+ years developing tools for content generation like GatewayGenerator and Synonymizer, we arrived to the conclusion that most clients are not willing to buy and learn new complex tools, but they would be willing to purchase of services instead. This is the age of Instant Delivery, after all.
For this reason we are puting together a series of plans that convert empty domains into Google-ranked, money-making, marketable sites.
Creating quality content is possible, but requires a real writer. They charge about 15 cents per word, with standard quality. With our products, we can charge less than 8 cents per word.

Investing in Domains: revenue thru Adsense – How much and when

Investing in Domains in these days more profitable than putting the money in bonds, stocks or any other financial instruments. Of couse, this is November 2008 and the markets are quite upset. My view is that they will come back to almost normal in a month or two. In the mean time, Domain Development is a very good alternative.

Since I started DomainGrower.com I am trying to predict how a domain will perform, depending on its name, the intended market, and the investment the owner is ready to do. Every domainer wants to make sure the investment will be highly profitable, and they ask about Google Ranking, Traffic, Adsense revenue, maintenance cost, increased domain-site value and finally, profit.

I am not able at this point to provide exact projections or a formula. However, I have now a pretty good idea of how the domain can grow and how much will return.

Very good domains convert visits into sales at 1% or more. This is quite unusual, but sometimes we see it. When your domain does not sell any particular item, just adsense clicks, the conversion rate can be 0.5% and be very good. It is also important to assess the quality and quantity of the traffic. If your visitors are real estate investors ready to buy expensive property, the clicks will be very valuable. Maybe U$D 40 or 50.

On the other hand, if they are poor Hispanic teenagers looking for free music or porn, their clicks will be much less valuable, maybe $ 0.03.

My advice would be to focus on a niche audience, providing some free service that could mean value for them. Adsense revenues will help pay the bills.

After that, you can start thinking into selling some valuable items. As your audience grows you can find new demanded fields where you can offer quality contents. At that point, maybe 6 months after start, you will jump from red to black numbers. In a year, the increased value of your site will be also reflected in the domain name value.

Ask us about the value of your existing domain or developed site, and listen to our domain growing suggestions.

Life imitates Digg

Ideas have a complex, little-known dynamics. As humans do, they are born, grow, reproduce and die. In the struggle to survive they fiercely fight other ideas. Being slim, original, useful and fertile are good attributes for them, while complexity, similarity to others and poor expression are forces that keep ideas in the obscurity.

We idea-marketers are in charge of dressing-up ideas and send them thru the appropriate channels into the battlefield. Digg.com is one of the preferred channels, because of the wide exposure for winners. In addition to sending my fighters to Digg, I optimize them for Google and Yahoo. In the Web business that activity is known as SEO, search engine optimizing. To advance the comparison, getting a good position in the search engines is like a long tournament between 2 knights, where horse, armour and other weaponry play a heavy role. Digg is  more like box: only pure idea strength leads to victory, in no more than one hour.

Speed is critical in our times. Today, the 100 Year War would be a 100 Minute War.  A Digg posting titled “Let’s Declare War on Britain (or France, or Iran)”, will soon get a couple of diggs with several buries, and that would be the end of it. A huge bullet saving.

It happens that many ideas in Real Life, as in Digg, are faced more often with indifference than with opposition. If my boxer is good but unknown, he will probably never reach Madison Square Garden. On the other hand, a John Doe pushed by Don King will get immediate exposure.

Digg has the “celebrity effect” built into his algorithm, privileging the known, successful coaches. Once you are famous, you blow your nose and you are in the news. If you are a Top Digger, your crap will always be noticed. It is a combination of good diggs and buries, good submissions and good friends, what gets Digg fame. As any politician knows, if you vote for the proper guys, and against the bad ones, and you have many powerful friends, you get to the top. Again, life follows Digg…

Do box promoters ever fix matches? Do actresses ever sleep with a producer to get a role? Quite likely.

Do Web Promotion agencies ever force a Digg story to the top, using Black Hat techniques? Also true.

Black Hat, in SEO terms, means doing what the search engines, or Digg, do not want you to do…

In both lives, virtual and real, those with a decent budget and a good manager have an edge against the immense competition.

Winners of the Innovar Contest 2007

I wrote an article about the winners of the Innovation contest in Argentina, with images and a brief description of each invention.

http://www.domaingrower.com/innovar-contest.htm

Since it was full with the photos I preferred to publish it as a separate page, with tables, in this website.

I also submitted the article to Digg.com, to see if an original article with quality contents (not mine) could climb to a decent ranking in Digg.

The poor results confirm that you need a little “push” from paid voters in order to get decent exposure in such a croweded unspecific social network.

Please bet on this article final Diggs and win…

Do you know how to Digg this article? It is easy enough: Go to Digg.com, get an account (only need is email) and vote for it.

The number of Diggs in the first 24 hours is critical for the article positioning in Digg. The most voted articles go to the top, and eventually make it to the front page, gaining lots of visibility.

However, Digg.com and the other sites using a similar engine, are very hard to tame. Most of the incoming thousand articles per hour get no diggs, and are quickly sent to nowhere land and forgotten.

The article needs to be very attractive and well written to achieve some readership.

The positive aspects is that it is FAST. You can climb from non-existance to fame in 10 minutes. And popular, because there are millions of readers that come every day to the site to check the news.

I have tried in this blog several strategies to seduce the Diggers. Or the Top Diggers, those users with good in-site reputation (sometimes called Karma), and heavy voting power. The Digg-like News Aggregators are non-democratic: some users have valuable votes, while most of them have negligible voting power.

This article uses bets, a popular way to draw public. Second only to naked girls, which was the subject of my previous post in DomainGrower.com…

So, you need to bet on How Many Diggs will This Article have 72 hours from now, this is, Saturday December 1st, at 2 PM London time.

Your votes should be Comments to this article.

You are not allowed to artificially inflate Diggs.

The winner will get 3 Digg accounts, at least 1 year old, and 10 Diggs to his/her own story.
