Promotion Tool Lab: Methodology

There are thousands of web promotion tools, but we focus in those oriented to web development or content creation.

Steps:

1) Identification of possible tools to be tested. They need to be original, well documented and offering reasonable promises. We
consider suggestions from readers and mainly from subscribers.

2) Publication of the basic data in this blog:

– tool type (script, software, plugin)
– platform (PC, Mac, Windows, Linux)
– purpose
– claims
– price
– warranty
– testimonials
– how it would be tested
– how long test is expected to last

After the test is done, the subscribers are informed of the result. They are granted access to a forum to discuss their findings.

This should help to solve the difficult question of which promotion tools should be acquired and used on the sites that need to be promoted. We manage our own sites and many from customers in many countries and we intend to provide the best promotion service available.

How to tell real facts from marketing pitches?

Every week several new tools for web promotion and SEO appear in the market. Most of them can be useless for the average Web Promoter, but a few can bring significant value. Which ones? Hard to tell.

Every new product comes out with an impressive amount of cleverly designed marketing mumbo-jumbo, mixed with technicalities and dubious favourable testimonials. Knowledgeable testing is rarely performed. Objective reviews are hard to find.

SitePromotion Law: To new Sites, Salesmen come First

One of Murphy laws says that if you promote a website, the first to come will be the salesmen that try to sell you Website promotion tools.

My websites are mostly about SEO and Site Promotion, and they collect many inquiries from companies that sell exactly the same services, offering me to transfer my clients to them. Sites from clients receive all the time inquiries from suppliers, providers, web hosting and web promotion companies.

Sell software online

Steps for Selling Software online

Selling software is an activity that quite obviously, needs to be done online. There are significant advantages of being able to do all these steps in a few minutes: find a useful software product, learn about it, download it, install it, test it, and reach for the credit card to buy it.
Paradoxically, many software programmers are unaware of the huge resources for selling software online, and do not even have a web site. Or they have a nice one, with plenty of Flash animations, and no elements for web ranking.

AdSense Income Calculator

Most of the web content we create for our customers is oriented to generate AdSense income.

This is a first approach to the issue of Adsense Income estimation. Most webmasters create sites with the intent of earning money from ads, and usually their expectations are overrated.

We designed an AdSense Income Calculator based in several factors known to influence AdSense revenue:

– extension of project (the more content, the more chance to earn from ads)

– language (English paying triple than Spanish, for instance)

– subject (cars earn more than bikes)

– Clic-thru rate (CTR). A measure of how attractive are ads for users. Hard to master, but critical for success.  There is a whole discipline called “adsense optimization” that addresses Adsense revenue at the time of writing and designing websites.

– Ad density (there is an optimal ad density, and it is dangerous to drift away from it)

– SEO (the site needs to rank top in Google, otherwise it will not earn money)

– age of project (ranking improves with time, provided we do not do anything punishable)

Making sites vs. making pages: different strategies to obtain conversions from Search Engine traffic.

When we create internal pages in a web site we do not usually expect that visitors will be convinced to buy the product just by reading them. They are, after all, units in a large set of pages called a site. The whole site is in charge of delivering the message and convincing visitors. However, the search engines rank pages for its individual content as defined by a few keywords.
At the beginning of the Web Marketing science, the idea of having a page was nice and useful, usually being enough for a promotion. Later, people started having complete sites, in order to provide more complete info and improve the chances of being found in the search engines. A site could sit in a sub domain, sometimes in large domains providing cheap or free hosting.
Having its own domain, with a carefully chosen name, became the next logical step.
Currently, it is cool to have a blog, for frequent and easy updates. And the savvy clients order a cluster of domains, with related names, sitting on servers with different Ips.

SEO Audit: what to check and how

We have a SEO Audit service, and we are always in the look for new issues to detect. So far we have about 50, and most webmasters should be aware of those. On average, a website incurs in 30-35 faults that negatively influence its rankings.

The number of in-site factors to be addressed is quite large. The most important ones are revelead by Google itself, if you have a Webmaster account. But many others are not divulgued, and you need to hang around the good webmaster forums for a while before you can identify them.
