A Smart Passive Income Idea: Give Your Online Marketing A Swig Of “link Juice”

My nickname is Rocktivity. And I’m a link juice-a-holic.

It started out innocently enough (but doesn’t it always?). After becoming a wealthy affiliate and making close to half a year’s worth of false starts, my online marketing practice finally started to take shape: I finally figured out how to find the right audience segments, search for the right keywords, put a Web site together within hours, and organize my campaigns onto a spreadsheet. The results were modest but undeniable: I got one of my sites in the top positions of the search engines, and sales, while still slow, became more consistent.

That got me feeling confident enough to expand my horizons to marketing physical online products and jump-starting my near-comatose e-mail list – but not to try “link juice,” also known as backlinking. Sure, I saw how the more experienced (and more profitable) online marketers would guzzle some down, then brag of more traffic and faster sales. But I didn’t feel I had the maturity to handle it, and besides, link juice appeared to be on the pricey side.

But then came that fateful day when I came across a free recipe:

  • 1 niche site landing page
  • 1 article directory
  • 1 Web 2.0 Page
  • 1 free blog page

Directions: place a link in all the ingredients to the niche site page. Submit and let simmer for about four weeks or until desired level of traffic and sales rises.

I decided that a small shot of link juice couldn’t do that much harm, and I could quit any time I wanted to. I created a Squidoo lens, Blogger page, and GoArticle all linking to a niche site of mine that never appeared in the search engines though the domain name was the same as the keyword. Then I decided that my link juice needed a personal garnish: I also wrote a Street Article.

For the next few weeks, I checked each day to see where my niche site was. I defined not being within the first twelve pages of the search engine results as “business as usual.” Then, about two weeks ago, my niche site turned up on Page 5!

That was it – instantly, I was beyond hooked on link juice. Before I knew it, I was strung out on the hardcore stuff – I started doing social bookmarking and blog commenting. And when a Street Article linking to another of my niche sites showed up as #2 in the search engine results – a Street Article that racked up 500 views in two days! – I knew I’d reached the point of no return.

No intervention or rehab is necessary, thank you. But I would strongly advise you get a good grasp of the basics of online marketing first. Then break open a bottle of link juice – it’s the smartest passive income idea I’ve had in ages!
