Great ways to Get Links Pointing to your Site

You can get links to your sites and get higher rankings with the search engines there are several things that you can do.

1. Write articles = this is time consuming, but is effective you write many articles and in the author resource box have the links back to your site. These articles are usually picked up from other sites and the author box is still in tact and your article is doing double duty. One of the best places to do this is ezine articles. These articles are picked up from other sites and you get great exposure to your sites. All your links are in place and will point back to your site.

2. Use Xombia to write little blurbs about your site. You get the links back to your site PLUS you get Adsense revenue for yourself. While this site doesn't pay you 100% of the profits, you will get profits from adsense as well as getting the links. These little blurs have to be at least 50 words, which is about 1 paragraph, just a brief description of your site and the link.

3. She Told Me website : This site is again writing little blurbs and you get 100% of adsense for each page that you write. If you refer people you make money off their adsense also. They also will pay for Chitka sites because they have links on the sites. She Told Me is a great way to make money while promoting your links. The Thing that I like most about She Told Me is that they give a screen shot of your website on each little blurb that you write. When you click on the title, it take the person right to your page.

4. Hubpages - Another great site to get back links and make money for yourself. Make EBay, Amazon and Adsense profits while gtting the links to your sites. You will have to write articles but unlike Ezine articles which don't pay you money this site will.

5. Squidoo - Make money again from many different resources. Even Clickbank. They won't pay you per click on Adsense or ebay but will instead send you a check when you reach payout.

Use these sites to get the backlinks and make money. You no longer are stuck writing longer articles to get the backlinks for no money. Promote your sites and earn while you do that.

Saving Money During The Recession

Saving money is just as important as making money. You have to be able to save what you make in order to have money to do what you need to do or what you want to do.

So how can you save money?

There are many ways that you can save money on everyday things. You can always ask for discounts when you go places.

Lets say you need new tires, always ask if you can get them cheaper, or if they can throw in the balancing for the tires for free. Many times you can get something free or pay less money.

Cable is another thing that you can negotiate on and get a better rate. Always ask about better deals, such as special discount, I normally ask what could they give me if I would go to dish. I have gotten great rates and specials from the retention department.

Cell phone companies will go that extra mile to keep you as a customer. I have gotten new phones, discounts and other free things like car chargers, face plates, and other goodies just by asking and hinting that I may go somewhere else.

Ms is a website that will give you more tips to save money on everyday things that you need to purchase.

Take that extra money that you save and bank it for a rainy day or for a unexpected necessity that may pop up.

Associated Content and Not Making Money

Associated Content isn't making you as much money as it used to? Your not alone. They have really been rejecting many articles and paying $1 or $1.50 for articles. That is for a 400 word article. To me that's not really worth even writing for that little bit of money.

Everything that you submit to them is lower than it was a year ago. Many times you get rejected because they say that there is already too much of that subject on their site. It's really hard to find something to submit and make you money with that site.

It does seem that they are looking for you to submit more video's. They have requests for things that you can do, usually just for page views, but most of them are video requests.

So where else can you go to write and make money? Try Helium the writers marketplace for some places that will pay for articles.

I will write up another post giving you more places that you can write articles and make money. Since I did the last one a year ago, things have changed. You now struggle making money on the sites that were paying well a year ago.

Squidoo Tip to Make More Money

Squidoo is a great way to make money. You can sell things from there, link to your sites, and even make lenses to resell for a profit.

There is another way that you can make money on Squidoo... Adding advertisements.
You can use a blank text capsule and add a link from Commission Junction or Pepperjam network. Don't write anything in that capsule, but just publish it, and you will have your own advertising for you. It blends in well with the page that you are working on, and it will be useful to help you sell more from the squidoo page.

While you don't want to over do it on the page, adding a advertising box to your page can only help you make more money. Match the ads to what your page is about to increase your sales.

Keeping The Motivation

Motivation.... How to keep it going when everything is going wrong.

Sometimes it's hard to keep the motivation going. I live in NC, affiliates are dropping NC residents from their programs because of a new Tax law that the state may pass. It hasn't passed yet, but we're still getting dropped.

Amazon is the first to do this. Now I have a ton of Hubpages that had Amazon links on. I had to go through and remove all those links from the sites. Each hub had to be gone through one by one. After getting that done, more emails arrived with the notice that "since you live in NC, we're dropping you" ... So it was back through the blogs, the lenses, the websites and remove these links.. So after updating everything, it is easy to get discouraged. So how can you stay motivated?

Well I look at the positive things. I still have many affiliate links that I can choose from, I still have choices and the links that I had to remove really weren't that good of links anyhow. I'm not going to get discouraged because I had to drop some affiliates I just moved on. It's all about bouncing back.

I had to rethink my plan, but since this is an online business, the keyword being business - You have to recover or close the doors. So what ever you have to do - just do it, recover and move on.

So take the time have your pity party, then find it inside of yourself that motivational spirit and move on and complete the tasks around the problems. While you are redoing one thing, look over the sites and tweak the things that need done and make it better. Make it a mission to get more traffic, more sales and set more goals.
