Well folks, at the end of the day I have to say that I enjoy the company here more than at any other site I visit. I have a great group of readers, and the conversations generally get pretty active in the comment area. It excites me, and drives me to continue pumping out great content. Well, you’ve inspired me to do even more.
Lately I’ve had my had in more than a few cookie jars at the same time, and it’s left me very litle time to post here at SFU. Well, that’s all changed. I offloaded a few time killing sites, hired a few great people to do some writing for me, and worked out a deal with a few others to do a revenue split on my flips, in exchange for some quality posting. What’s this mean to you? More updates here at SFU!
It’s kinda sad actually. Ever since it’s creation, Site Flip U has been a flagship blog in my opinion, yet it’s been treated like the red-headed stepchild of my network. I have done NO promotion, NO link building, and NO real work here other than organizing a contest, keeping up with comments, and churning out a post or two a week. Well, after checking out some of my most recent posts… they suck. You come here to hear about blog flipping, and since the contest, you’ve had maybe 1-2 value posts to read. Luckily, most of you have stuck around, but fasten your seatbelts… things are about to change. I generally post about twice a week, but I vow to do my absolute best to try and churn out 3 quality posts a week, and maybe one or two news stories about hot niches, marketplace news, or even some recent flips of mine.
Just to show you I’m serious about improving SiteFlipU, I spent my Saturday doing several things that I should have done months ago to improve my site. I created 3 different Squidoo Lenses, so that I can control the term “Blog Flipping” by doing so. I have all 3 variations of the term blog flipping, and that should improve my SEO efforts considerably. I’m also working on some on-site SEO stuff that should have been done from day 1! What else? Link building of course. I want to rank #1 for the term “blog flipping“, out of the 40,000+ results. What have I done so far to get there… nothing! The funny thing is that Missy actually ranks higher than me for a term that I decided to target months ago. Sad but true. Shows what a complete disregard for link building can do. Missy, congrats… but I’m coming for you now! You think I’m ambitious? You should see me when I’m motivated!
My 3 new Squidoo Lenses in case you want to check them out…
That’s right, I’ve officially created a Squidoo monopoly for the term. What I did was used the first one, squidoo.com/blog-flipping as a main page, and used the other two variations to have a link to my site, but more importantly a link to the main squidoo page. Hopefully this passes some link juice with time, and the main squidoo page ranks first or second for the term, while my blog ranks right ahead or behind it. Either way, they’ll find my site.
Also, I plan on getting out to comment more. I have used this site in the URL field when commenting on other sites, but I never anchor the link with my target keywords. It wasn’t really a focus of mine since SFU was really kind of an afterthought. Well, now that I have some time to really build, it’s time to get to work. I’ll be commenting much more, and of course, anchoring my links like they should be.
What else? Well, increased posting frequency, more comments, more high quality links (like Squidoo), and… hmmm… I think I’m forgetting something. Oh yeah! Twitter! I’ve got an account, and I keep hearing from my marketer friends how wonderful of a service it is at driving traffic, yet I still haven’t found time to keep messing with it. I’ll be changing that too. Anyone got Twitter accounts they want followed? Send me your username in a comment. I’ll follow!
I’m pumped. I’ve actually got time to work on the flagship, it’s time to see what this site can do. Hope I didn’t lose to many of you in the process!
