EVO vs SENuke – two powerful SEO Tools (Why I cancelled SENuke today)

I just cancelled my SENuke account, but let me give you the whole story…

I started with Bruteforce’s EVP about three years ago.  I was really impressed by their video (see it here).   I think I was one of their early customers, and I had a subscription that last about two years.  Unless I was swamped with work, I ran it at least once or twice a week.  One summer, when between jobs, I ran it as often as seven times a day (in that release, it took at least a few hours for each run).   What I liked about it was that it took such little effort.

When that subscription expired, curiosity got the best of me, and I again become curious about SENuke, which I had used for a brief time a few years back.  It is truly a more sophisticated product and has a lot more control, power and options.  Some people think it is hard to learn, but my full-time work is doing enterprise level software, so the learning was not that hard for me, and picking it up wasn’t that hard either.

I then bought Peter Mai’s how to guide, to keep the most out of it.  After all is said and done, I spent $147/month for at least two months, and I’m not sure I even finished my first submittal.  I do my SEO on nights and weekends.  So overall, even being a techie, I found I didn’t have the time (as a part-timer) to fully exploit the power of SENuke.  I do believe it’s a great product, but just too time consuming.  Peter’s suggestions involved writing an article that was at least 30% unique.  I think it took me an hour or two to generate one that was 25% unique.  I know that can be outsourced, but the first one, I wanted to do myself.

With EVO, I let it pick a similar article and have everything submitted in under five minutes, literally!   Let me say it again; if I had time, I think SENuke is the better tool and solution.  But since I don’t have time, I’m going back to EVO.

 

 

 

Neal’s Coaching Lesson 1 – Start a WordPress Blog

A friend recently asked me about getting into Internet Marketing. After thinking a while, I would recommend the following plan of action.

First, start a blog. Why?

  1. If you are a newbie, you will learn a lot, including web hosting, WordPress, and some other techie skills.
  2. You won’t lose any money, but you will pay small fees for web hosting and your own domain name.
  3. You will improve your writing skills, and perhaps start to think how to position and brand yourself.
  4. You will begin to build your “herd” (that’s what Dan Kennedy calls your followers or audience).
  5. Even if you never create a make-money site, you will still have a blog site you can use for the rest of your life.

How to get started with your blog?

I would on only suggest self-hosted WordPress sites.  Yes you can do free blogs on many different sites, but if you want control over your site and your future, WordPress seems to be the most popular tool right now.  And it is seems to be the basis of most internet marketing websites these days.   WordPress has gazillions of free plug-ins.

NOTE: we are talking here about a self-hosted WordPress site.  You can get a free account with WordPress, but you will not have control over your own site, to install your own plug-ins that can help make profits in the future.

Here are the exact steps (and costs):

  1. Signup at HostGator – Click on the link that says “View Web Hosting Plans”. I suggest the “Baby Plan”.  This will allow you to learn WHM (step 2 below), and have more than one site in the future.  You can always upgrade later.  The prices vary depending on how much in advance you want to pay for.   But basically, under $8/month.
  2. Register your domain with GoDaddy.  You have two choices, a site based on a single topic (such as “ceramic pottery”), or a site based on you (your name, family, personality, business, etc..).  Why not start with something like your name, if it’s not already taken.  If JimSmith.com is taken, then try something JimSmithOfMyTown.com, or TheRealJimSmith.com.  Or pick a topic instead.  It will be frustrating at first, a lot of the names you want will be taken.  Try http://NameBoy.com for even more assistance, but I do suggest GoDaddy for ultimately buying your domain (under $10/year, I suggest getting two years).  NOTE: By getting your name, then in the future, I’ll show you how to have a “vanity email”, such as: Jim@TheRealJimSmith.com, and even tie it into your GMAIL if you want.  On the other hand, if you are the world’s expert in underwater basket weaving, then start a site on that topic.   You blog should be on a topic that you are passionate about.
  3. Learn how to use WHM – Web Host Administator using Hostgator’s free training videos: http://www.hostgator.com/tutorials/whm/creating-an-account-in-whm.htm.  Every domain you buy requires an account in WHM.
  4. Logon to your CPanel, and use the utility/program called “Fantastico” to install WordPress.  It takes under 5 minutes, and here is the video: http://www.hostgator.com/tutorials/wordpress/2.7/installing-wordpress-via-fantastico.htm
  5. Watch all the free videos on WordPress here: http://www.hostgator.com/tutorials.shtml.  Note: WordPress is now at a higher release (such as 3.1), but the changes are not that much different than these videos (that demonstrate 2.7).
  6.  I don’t want to overwhelm you with WordPress settings now.  The important one is to change your “permalink settings”
    to %post-name%. (see “configure settings” video in #5 above).
  7. Delete the sample “Hello World” post that came with the WordPress installation, and write your own first Post (and click “Publish”).  Congratulation, you are now a blogger!
  8. Try to write one new post per week.  Start thinking of what your “categories” will be.  For example, see http://NealWalters.com.  Set aside 30-60 minutes a week to write this post, such as Wednesday morning, before work or breakfast.  If you don’t set a time, your posts will be sporadic, or you won’t post as often as you should.

As time passes, you can “tune” your WordPress site by changing the theme and appearance settings, but we will cover that later.

The domain will cost you $10 or $20 for one or two years, and the hosting will be under $8/month (and with that hosting, you can host other domains in the future).  If you don’t want to spend that much money, go to a free site such as Blogger.com, Tumbler.com, Squidoo.com, and find yourself another coach.   Those sites may have some potential, but they often typically lack the tools and plug-ins that WordPress has.

 

 

 

 

Click Conspiracy Review and Critique – What do you actually get in the box?

Click Conspiracy Review and Critique

This “Click Conspiracy Review” is as much a critique as it is a review. I’m shocked that after an hour of video, they don’t even tell you exactly what it is your are buying!

Who is Max Fortune

Well obviously, Max Fortune is a fictional character. But you might be interested in knowing the cool guy behind behind my Click Conspiracy Review. It’s Tim Atkinson, and here is his website:
http://www.TimAtkinsonlive.com. But I’m not sure it’s his voice on any of the videos, maybe two of them so far. I’ll give him an A+ for having a good photographer make his mug shots.

My “Click Conspiracy Review” Tells the Whole Truth about What’s Inside the Box

The basic product is $47, and from the video and sales pitch, you would have absolutely no idea of what it is you are actually getting. So here’s the inside scoop. The base product is two WordPress plugins:


  1. A WordPress plugin that automatically submits each of your posts to http://pixelpipe.com/. To do this, they recommend using http://fiverr.com/ to pay some dude $5 who will create all the accounts for you. I’d be afraid to use an auto or “legit” account for this, just in case something gets it banned.
  2. A WordPress plugin that does “old-fashioned” cloaking. I didn’t know people still tried to use cloaking! What is cloaking, you ask? The idea of cloaking is that you present one HTML page to the search engine robots that crawl your site, and another HTML page to a real-live user. Robot/crawlers are nice enough to identify themselves as such, and thus it’s simple for a programmer to put an “if statement” in the code to change the web page for one vs. the other. This is the first tool I’ve seen that does in WordPress, however, I just did a google search and found several free ones. I haven’t looked at them, but I watched the training video from “Click Conspiracy”, and it looks very flexible and easy to use. Here’s the Wikipedia full explanation of cloaking:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloaking. Most people warn that cloaking is a “black hat” technique that should be used with extreme caution.

Let me give you one example where I could see I might could use this tool. I recently bought SEOPressor, a WordPress plugin that looks at on-page SEO. It analyzes you your keyword density, headings, etc… (Read the blog here: SEOPressor Review. I wanted this blog, the one you are reading now, to rate well for “Click Conspiracy Review”, and that made me stuff the exact same words, “Click Conspiracy Review” into the article more times than I wanted. So with a cloaker, the search engine would see the repetition of words, and the user wouldn’t be cluttered by that. This however, means double the work, writing one article or post for the search engines, and another for the user. Believe it or not, that’s why I added this paragraph to the article, to get the phrase “Click Conspiracy Review” in my post three more times! Enough to satisfy SEOPressor.

Click Conspiracy Review Tells About the Upsells

A good Click Conspiracy Review should tell you something about what’s in the box, and something about the upsells.

So, what does this mean to a buyer? These tools are obviously aimed at an experienced affiliate marketer who already has several WordPress sites. If you are starting from scratch, I would honestly say this is not the product or course for you. There are training videos that show you to install and use the plugins, but they all assume you already know WordPress. However, they do a free offer with a partner that will be one website for you for free (not sure what the catch is there, probably an upgrade on graphics or something).

Now, I shouldn’t tell you this, but if you are going to buy the upsells, you can save $50 on the second upsell, and $20 on the third by choosing the “no” option (but don’t choose no on the first one). [An upsell, is common now on almost every launch; it’s when they sell you additional products, immediately after you bought the first one.] The upsells are additional tools: Abitrage Conspiracy and Tube Conspiracy. I’m still looking into them now. Arbitrage basically posts spam comments to forums in order to get you more backlinks. I don’t have a tool like that in my arsenal yet, and I’ll probably give a try on a couple of sites I’m having trouble ranking for.

I realize that I might have just “unsold” a lot of people on this tool, but I don’t care. I believe in telling a person what it is they are actually buying. Dan Kennedy says number one rule about advertising is that is CANNOT be boring. The cute little movies about spies stealing briefcase is cute, but as a business person, I really don’t need that. I bought it because I’m a tool collector. I like tools that make my websites do better and make more money.

Since I’m such an open and honest person, I would encourage you to join my mailing list at the right side of this page. No bull, guaranteed!

Installing and Using a WordPress Plugin Called “SEOPressor”

I have a few websites that aren’t getting the SEO rankings I want, despite using Bruteforce EVO on them regularly.

There are two types of “search engine optimization” (SEO), on-page and off-page.   Bruteforce EVO  focuses on off-page techniques, namely building backlinks.  On-Page techniques involve adapting the page itself, by using the proper mix and density of keywords, and appropriate tags (including headings, bolding, italics, underline).
