If you’re able to get on Google Page One, everything changes.
Your traffic SHOOTS up. It’s like the difference between night and day. It can make your jaw drop when your website hit counter starts hitting the hundreds of thousands.
More importantly, though, you see a radical increase in your income (IF you’re doing things right.) It’s how a lot of folks make a living, and a few really smart cookies are cashing in to the tune of millions.
The question, then, is how to get onto page one. The first thing that might come to mind is search engine optimization (SEO). That’s absolutely true – using certain SEO techniques can be a great way to get your website placed in the search engines. We’ve made a lot of money doing it, and it works.
What you probably didn’t know, though, is that you can get on page one of Google for very competitive keywords (ones that get up to 50,000 to 100,000 searches per month) in under 30 minutes.
It’s hard to believe, I know. I wouldn’t have believed it if I didn’t see it. And, it’s “white hat.” No devious underground method, no loopholes.
Now, I’ll tell you upfront, there are a couple of catches…
1.) You don’t “keep” these rankings. You lose ‘em after a couple of days. But, it’s easy to get ranked again for the same keyword phrase, if you want. (Plus, you still get serious traffic.)
2.) It takes some upfront investment in order to be able to rank for these keyword phrases on demand. I’m not talking money – I’m talking time. You have to do some fairly intensive work in the beginning, but it’s worth your time.
So, here’s the big secret…
You can rank almost instantly (we’ve seen, on average, between 10 and 25 minutes) using Google News.
Most people don’t know that ANYONE can actually become a respected news source. Your news articles will be published and usually posted on page one for the targeted keyword phrases related to your articles.
It does NOT have a 100% success rate – but it’s quite high.
As I mentioned, the process of becoming a trusted news source requires a bit of elbow grease. You’ll need to put your nose to the grindstone to create a news site that Google deems professional enough to be in their news database.
The rewards are astounding. If you can read and write, you can do this. Google News brings surges of traffic and you can monetize that traffic by…
*Building a list
*Selling advertising space
…and a bunch more.
The only way to stop the flood of traffic you get is to stop writing articles or to get booted from the Google News database (which generally only happens if you do something stupid.)
Now, with all that said, there is a very important skill you should learn before attempting to be a Google News Source. You need to learn how to write effectively.
(If you become a good writer, you can always find ways to make money. Google News is just one many ways.)
The most common reason people get turned away by Google News is because they don’t write well…but it’s a skill ANYONE can quickly learn. It just takes practice.
Over the next couple of days, we’ll be revealing more about Google News and the special process for getting approved as a Google News Authority. We’ve got big things coming, so be ready!
