Spice Up Your Blog With Pinterest

If you manage a niche blog and you want to increase traffic to your website, you are likely aware of the importance of developing and implementing an effective Search Engine Optimization (SEO) campaign. A strong SEO campaign encompasses a targeted keyword research effort and link building. You can use freely available tools such as Google AdWords to compile a list of relevant keywords pertaining to your blog's niche. These keywords should be in high demand, meaning that they have a large number of monthly searches, but face low levels of competition. To keep things simple for now, you should sprinkle these keywords throughout your blog in order for your site to rank high in search engine rankings. This will increase the level of organic traffic to your blog. Link building involves placing links to your blog on external websites.  Typically, a strong link building campaign centers on contacting the webmasters of authoritative blogs in the same general niche and requesting permission to submit a guest post. Let's say you manage a blog that offers home decor ideas, for example. You should contact the webmasters of well-established blogs in the same general niche. Link building really is a process that involves patience and cooperation.

First, Google rewards high quality backlinks with higher search engine rankings, which again increases the level of organic traffic to your site. Additionally, your blog will enjoy greater traffic that is highly...

Pinterest – Spammers Are A Girl's Best Friend

Quick, what has black hat, bots, and boobs all over? Wrong, dirty bird! It's Pinterest. Word on the street is Pinterest got so much traffic, it's like selling candy to babies. Babies who will pin it to others babies with computers who will repin and buy it through an affiliate link. Like the Matrix. It's that  serious, folks. Christa Laser, a popular Hangout Academy personality on Google+ was publicly praising  Pinterest's responsible practices about 10 days ago. Didn't think twice about it until the spamming noise broke out. That same week, the Daily Dot published their findings about the black hat activity "exploiting" Pinterest's vulnerabilities. Since then, the web has been buzzing over the scandalous spamming news and it's been making rounds on popular blogs for about a few days now. Could harmless piece piece of praise on Google Plus been a tip to this "quiet" feud between sly marketers and the team at Pinterest? Christa, like thousands of other women, have fallen head over heels with the new social network that has apparently caught a sizeable following of visually stimulated women (and some men too). Meanwhile, secretive members were amassing an army of bots to counter their apparent strides in social awareness, drawing fat Amazon paychecks off of the hot new network's voracious appettite for buy-worthy pins. The picture that's being painted is that Pinterest is chock full of "buying traffic". Whereas most people are fawning over the social benefits Pinterest offers to the creatively inclined, a small crowd of digital hustlers are boasting over their spending behaviors. I reached out to Lyndon Antcliffe to learn more about "black hat" methods...
