Please Stop Reading Emails to Get Google First Page Results

How many of those "get Google first page results" emails do you get in your inbox? I think I have most of them blocked, but occasionally one will get through the filters. Do you think those spam emails work? Do they generate business at all for the email spammer? I have been involved in Internet Marketing for nearly 15 years. I started out selling websites and advertising for one of the biggest players at the time in what is often referred to as vertical search websites. When I first started, we did not push search engine rank or position at all. We had a lot of traffic on the site. We didn't have to explain how people go there... they were there! A lot has changed at that company since then... as has the Internet altogether.

It amazes me how many people come to me asking how can a person guarantee page 1 of Google? I ask them "For what?" "What term are they guaranteeing you first page placement?".. that seems to always be lost in the advertisement. I tell them its easy to get a page 1 result for millions of terms.. its getting a first page result for a term that people are searching... that is what you want, and most of the time, they will not guarantee first page placement for the term of your choice.

Beware of the Scam. Many of these email spammers will find something that they can get easily, then show you some magic and make you think they are experts. Ask them how many times that term is searched, how much traffic will you get from being on page one. Most of the time, the people behind these spam Google advertisement ads have no clue why you are even asking those questions. In those cases, they are part of a scam to get your money.

At that big company I worked for back in the late 90's and early 2000's downplayed Search Engine Marking and that term S E O, mainly because they did not perform well in them. It wasn't long before they were hiring HUGE firms to get them to perform better in search.. they were paying millions for keyword buys with that costs going up monthly. Now they are spending lots of money for BIG time firms to keep them high in the search engines. I'm sure you know its a big business. How does anyone expect to compete?..There are a lot of marketing tools you can use to help you. Take some classes and learn to do it yourself. It will save you a lot of money and may just help you earn a second income along the way.

A great article. It makes sense especially today to learn how to do it yourself. A person who is ignorant of what works and what doesn't is more likely to get caught by scams.

Great advice! It is better to learn how to do it yourself than depend on someone else who may or may not get your web site ranked higher. Thanks for sharing this!

You're right! Education makes a difference. When we take some classes we're continuing to improve our ability to help ourselves.

Yes - If you are going to have a website, spend some time learning...if you choose to have someone else do it, at least you know if they are doing their job - I have seen so many people paying for services that are not being completed...and keep paying because they did not know any better.

I hate those spammy emails and often wonder who actually will fall for them, but obviously they are successful because they keep on with it. You're right about educating yourself so you don't get scammed. thanks

I know people that have sent money to some of those scams.... How about the Domain Registry of America letters in the mail? That's another scam that people fall for. It drives a webmaster crazy when a client sends money to those guys..even worse if they send the registrar info to actually transfer it to them.

Helpful advice, there are so many scams out there it takes a while before you come across good helpful sites that can be used and put into practice so you can start making money from your blog or website.

A lot Mark... To illustrate my point, I once blogged an article on one of my sites with an obscure phrase, it reached #1 on Google within a few hours and has been there for that phrase for a very long time... It impresses people until you tell them that NO ONE searches that phrase except me when I am demonstrating this point! Many 'aha' moments!

Hey Dom - thanks for the feedback. I have recently refreshed some of my skills by watching the wordpress building tutorials, keyword niche list building training courses and how to earn your first $50 online...I made $50 a long time ago, but those tips are always good to earn $50 again and again! ...and again.
