Trick: How To Be Number One On Google For Keywords


This next trick I am going to show you is something that worked for me all the time. To be number one on google for Top Keywords!.

It really does not matter if you are new to blogging and what page rank you have all you really need is focus on Top Keywords and blogs that rank number one for keywords like example: “Make Money Online” or “Best Technology Blogs”

This is what I would like you to do!

Do research which blog is number 1 for keyword you are looking for. Then go to that blog and leave comment in way you don’t sound like spammer yet you want to draw traffic from that blog to your blog (blog post).

If you notice also that blog is accepting Post Trackbacks write a GOOD blog post on your blog and link to that blog post which is ranking No.1 for specific keyword.
This trick worked for me each time, I would get at least 500 visitors each month from each blog that rank number one.

So it really does not matter if you rank 12403 for keyword like “make money online” because your comment or Trackback is going to give you pretty much good exposure to people, that were interested in that keyword.

What Is The Best Time To Blog Post




Over the past few years I learned that if you post an article at specific time you can gain more readers, returning visitors and you control your audience when to hit the site the most.

Best time to blog post will be right in the morning 6am. Most people wake up at that time, have their coffee, serial and laptop front of them. But that does not mean that your particular audience is going to be that way.

Why?

Blogs like Political News, Economy News, Technology News or Celebrity News (News that change constantly) are more interesting to read in the morning or after work 5PM.

Blogs like Make Money Online, Astronomy, How To’s, Education etc …are more visited throughout the day BUT there is always that peak time which you should hit every day.

As you can see BONTB peak time is between 12pm-18pm now I would like you to compare your times and see the difference.

Again Why?????

Because what you want to do is check your time line when people are most visiting and blog post about an hour before the big audience arrives. This way people will say “Oh this has been just updated, great!” or “Wow I got to bookmark this!, it’s breaking news!”

Help a Blogger Choose Some Speakers


write here

Passive Speakers

These are included here only for completeness: nobody should ever consider passive speakers. Little more than a pair of earbuds in a box, these toy accessories are uniformly tinny, rattling novelties. The only thing that sounds worse is the cellphone music that generous teenagers share with you on the Subway.

A close cousin is the active speaker, usually adding a little more oomph with a battery powered amplifier. The only real difference is that they can project the sound a little further, therefore bringing more people into your radius of irritation.

Verdict: Avoid

Extras

Another thing to consider is how you’ll get the music to the speakers. If all your music is on an iPod, Apple’s Universal Dock is a good choice: the line-out will hook into any stereo and it comes with a remote. If you are using iTunes, on a Mac or a PC, the Airport Express will wirelessly stream tunes around the house. Then there are third party options, like Roku’s Soundbridge and the Sonos system, but those can be pricey (and have a lot of extra frills). Plus, you still need a stereo to actually play the music. Of course, there’s always the cheap option: a six foot cable with a jack on each end.

Recommendations in the comments, please. I’m leaning towards a 2.1 setup, but if you can convince me otherwise, I’m happy to change. And keep them cheap.

Help a Blogger Choose Some Speakers


Digital music is great, something very apparent to the frequent traveler. Since moving to Spain last year, I’ve been hopping from country to country and apartment to apartment, carrying my whole music library on my Mac’s hard drive. Compare that to a few packing cases full of CDs and you can see why I ripped all my music before that first, nervous departure.

But how best to get that music back into distinctly analog, air-shifting sound-waves? This post is ostensibly to ask for your help, as I have landed, speaker-less, back on Barcelona’s fair shores. But first, read a roundup of the options.

A Real Stereo

This might be the smartest option in terms of quality. What we used to call ‘mini-systems’ usually have beefy speakers and the space inside for a decent amplifier. The trouble is, those same speakers take up space, both on the shelf and in the shipping box. All-in-ones also pack in a lot of superflous (for me, at least) extras: a radio, a CD player, and perhaps even a cassette deck (remember those?)

Separates would solve the latter problem as you only need to buy an amplifier and speakers, and they will probably give the best sound of all. But they’re expensive, take up a lot of space and, to be honest, if you’re just pumping MP3s through it, you probably won't notice the difference.
