Hello SuperTips readers,
"Hey Google - you can't BLACKMAIL me."
That was the title of a posting I recently made
at the Warrior forum.
Here is the post.
A while ago I published an article "It's Goodbye To Google"
where I explained how I've given Google the push as a result
of its ranking inconsistencies.
I told how my site about ClickBank originally ranked a
worthy number 2, second only to ClickBank.com itself, and
then as time went by it slipped ... to number 426.
Beaten out of sight by simple one-sentence pages with just
one keyword mention. You know the sort of thing
"Hi I'm a 5 year old, I have a cat and love ClickBank"
Well as my article started to spread virally across the
globe the repercussions have been felt at the very highest
level in the boardroom of the Googleplex.
How do I know ?
Because mysteriously my site is now back, almost in it's
once lofty position, at number 5
THAT is how I know.
There can be NO OTHER reason.
Quite obviously this is part 1 of their softening up policy.
And part 2 ?
They'll now be sending me a cheque with a few zeros BEGGING
me to withdraw the article.
But will I ?
Well just watch me when that cheque comes
I'll cut it up and burn it.
And record it all on video and stick it on my home page.
And why ?
I'll tell you why.
Because ... I am a .... WARRIOR
A warrior who lives by the sword of integrity.
In fact the postman has just arrived.
Just as I thought - a letter from Google.
And inside, it looks like a cheque.
Well this is the moment: I'm waiting here, scissors and
matches in hand, ready to tell Google where to stick it.
Let's have a look.
Wahoo !! ....
It's my AdSense payment for June.
Two dollars and 7 cents
Must go now. I'm off to the bank.
And the underlying point of this story ?
It's this: you should never depend too heavily on one
company or one product or one idea.
So in my case rather then depend on high rankings from
Google I'm using other strategies - as you can see from
"It's Goodbye To Google"
And if you are looking for new ideas to build your
online business make a note of the latest buzzword in
Internet circles. It's "Squidoo".
I won't explain what it is - if you want to get ahead of
the pack you might want to start reading up on it now.
Or even better - and here's a SuperTip:
Just as with any new topic there's an opportunity for
you to produce guides, articles, tips, ebooks, sites to
help explain it to newcomers.
That's what one well known guru has done - but he's
always ahead of the pack. He's got his own page at my
small 'minisite' of Internet Marketers.
