Interview with Ankit Singla from Bloggertipstricks: Sharing Best Blogging Strategies

Hey You bloggers we are back again with amazing interview. As part of our BloggersIdeas interview series, today we have Ankit Singla from BloggerTipsTricks.com & Techclicko who have Over 1.5 years experience in affiliate, SEO, search, social and content marketing for small businesses. He will be answering various questions related to Digital Media & other Internet Marketing stuffs . So lets start with the interview.

Can you tell us something about your blogging journey. How and when did you enter into blogging? And who are your blogging role models?

I came to know about blogging 4 years back after attending a seminar on ‘Make money with Google Adsense’. I did a lot of research on it and create my first blog in year 2010.

I can’t say who is my blogging role model because I started blogging only because of my interest.

What are your top favorite 3 tools for managing social media campaigns and why ?

Yes, I use the world’s largest Social Media tool and that’s Facebook..My campaigns are running through facebook. After making every post I market them with Facebook Fan pages and Facebook Groups.Where I get More Targeted traffic which can easily boost my blog engagement and sales.

Do you Pinterest for your business, what kind of pinterest tools you use.

I’ve heard that pinterest is one of the growing social media but the major problem with pinterest is that about 80% of the users are Womens. I’m not saying that womens are not interested in blogging and make money stuffs but in pinterest most of them I found out is recipe lovers. So I’m not concentrating much on Pinterest. As I already said I love targeted traffic.

If you are familiar with Internet marketing what kind of tactics you use for your blog reader engagement.

I’m not that much familiar with internet marketing like what others do. But with my potential I make around $800/Month. This may sound low or great, anyway I use a single tactic. “Collect the Trust of My Readers” Actually I don’t even like disturbing or irritating my readers .

Before placing a single ad or a pop-up box I think twice. Grabbing daily readers is difficult job in my point of view. Seeking their attention is also one of the difficult things. Only hard work can make this thing’s happen in the right manner. So I work hard to make my readers happy and as a regard they believe the products I recommend then finally a good amount of Income I get out of it.

That’s the real tactic I use.

What Is Your SEO Super Power?

The answer for this Question may sound weird but to be honest I don’t do that much of Off Page SEO, I mostly concentrate on ON Page SEO. I’ve some common strategies in Onpage SEO and I do use SEO pressor plugin.

As I said I don’t care much on off page SEO but Social Media Optimization is one of my weakness and I think I’m doing good with it.But the best thing I’ve found out is that I get some good organic traffic with my current strategies. So that’s my Super Power.

How Do You Conduct An SEO Experiment?

Experiments??! Oh God this one remembers me my old blogging times. Really I was a scientist who does all the experiments and fails on it. When I was a newbie I’ve done many foolish experiments maybe that’s why I’m making some decent money now.

But don’t think that I’m an expert now, according to my point of view there are no experts in blogging as the blogging system is changing day by day.

Anyway coming to my point, now at the current blogging journey I’m not doing any experiments. It’s not because I’m a big blogger but really I don’t have time for doing these kinds of experiments.

And when I think there is a need of experiments I’ll surely do that but I love my blog a lot and I’m not ready to take big risks on that.

What kind of SEO Tools Do You Use And Why?

Yeah! Just like other blogger’s out there in the blogosphere I also use some SEO tools. The main SEO tool I use is Keyword Planner and Long Tail Pro. Even though both are keyword research tools I feel comfortable when I’m using both. The purpose of using it is quite simple; to survive in this SEO sea I need them.

Keyword research is one the important thing I do and if you find the best keyword then you just need to write the content with some On page SEO. It will surely boost your rank. Good rank is equal to good quality blog. Between I also use the SEO pressor plugin to analyze my OnPage SEO.

What blogs do you read? Tell me about an article you recently read that stuck out to you.

I Normally read some blogs which are on blogging niche and as well as some other niches too.

Especially I love reading ShoutMeLoud and enstinemuki.com and Aha-now also especially I get attracted to a title I will never miss reading it .And here is one the title that attracted me www.aha-now.com/make-money-blogging-online/

A client asks you to build a strategic plan for their website. What steps would you go through?

A Strategic plan for a Website. Yes, if someone comes like that, I will ask some questions to them which will be related to their company and finally I’ll make a market watch of that company and its online competitors. After finishing these jobs I can suggest them with different strategy and they really differ with the type of the company.

What are the Secrets of Affiliate Marketing and are you associated with any kind of affiliates.

There are no secrets in my affiliate marketing. But as I said the super secret is gaining trust and If I made $100 from affiliate sales it’s just because of the trust I’ve with my readers. I use some hosting affiliate program which yields me a good income to make my living.

Hostgator is one of the best affiliate program I use and other affiliate programs like Bluehost, Shareasale, Clickbank etc. To be honest affiliate programs are really cool if you have some readers’ trust, so it’s time to build it up.

Do you use Blackhat SEO tactics in a white hat way. Like scrapebox …

Black Hat SEO is something scary in my point of view, because when I try it there is a chance for getting ban from Google. So I’ve decided to not try it and why Should I. Between I don’t really know about using Blackhat tricks in the whitehat way. I’ve heard that ScrapeBox is good and I’m going to give it a try sooner.

What are your biggest client hurdles?

“Client Hurdles” A bit confusing question, to be frank I don’t accept all the client requests but while managing my clients I had this feeling like one in the Olympics. In some cases it makes me feel funny. Yeah really when my clients are asking me to teach them about a thing which I’m not familiar with I get a mini heart attack.

But I won’t give up I’ll manage them with some stuffs and will learn about what they asked finally deliver them a worthy answer. I think this is a good way to learn new things.

On Optimizing a Site – Briefly Tell us what a Search-friendly Site Looks Like?

Actually a Search Engine Friendly website should look like a plain and bad looking one..!! Just kidding but there are some facts in that, if you are designing a well looking website managing headings etc. for good SEO is a difficult job on the other hand it’s kind of easy in a plain theme. But to survive in the current market we need looks.

According to me the first priority is readers if the readers are comfortable with the website looks then Google also likes that because Google is more interested in the comfortability of the users. So better keep a design which is comfortable with readers and I’m sure Google also likes that.

On Google – Tell me about the Latest Changes at Google ?

Yeah As I’m reading some blogs as I said, I’ve noticed some changes. I can say two of them – You’ll get Ad penalty if you place ad above the fold.  2. Guest Blogging For SEO is Kind of Dead. That’s for new.

Is Author Rank is the latest technique of off page SEO ? Do you think Google give preference to this ?

Yes, Ofcourse Google gives preference to it. If you have more Google+ followers you can get good rankings. And I don’t think this is a new update it’s here since some years. Whatever, try to build some followers it will really help in case of traffic and rank.

What Are Your Relationship Building and Outreach Skills?

As I said earlier building trust and relationship is behind my success and I won’t take a single decision which hurts or make feel like bad for my readers. Just like others I also reply to the comments interact with them through social media but the best part of it is that when you are recommending them the right thing then there is more chance for them to reach success there you earn real trust and it’s a best way to boost your sales, really I believe in that I hope that’s my Outreaching Skill.

Do You Share Your Strategies Transparently With the SEO Community?

Yes, I do! Because I never forget the way I came through. Once I was also a newbie and I really know the difficulty in learning blogging as well as SEO. Especially learning SEO without some help is really untolerable. So I arrange some group chats, Share some SEO tips and Of course through personal chatting also I help them at my maximum.

Do you have any Questions to ask, Do you have more  Marketing Strategies to share. So go on share in the comments below !!!

Dont forget to share this awesome interview in social media. I will be pleased if you share this now !!! Cheers!!! Join BloggersIdeas on FacebookGoogle+ & Twitter 🙂

Sharing her Blogging Success Secrets

Hey you bloggers we are back again with another stunning interview session!

As part of our BloggersIdeas interview series, today we have  Professional blogger  Adrienne smith, She loves sharing what she have learned over at her blog, adriennesmith.net.

She ‘ve become pretty much a fanatic for all things having to do with blogging, driving traffic to your blog and building relationships with your readers. She is keen blogger and always ready to help fellow bloggers.

Lets explore with Adrienne.

Please tell us about yourself and your educational background ?

I want to thank you as well Jitendra for this opportunity and I’m happy to be here.

My name is Adrienne Smith and I’ve been online now for seven years.  I was an executive assistant for over 31 years while in corporate America.  When our company downsized I made the decision to do something else with my life and eventually found my way to the internet to see if I couldn’t build a business online.

It took me quite a while to understand how this all works and what it was that I enjoyed doing the most.  Blogging just ended up being what I loved and my passion has always been to help others.  Those two things just ended up going hand in hand.

As far as my educational background I didn’t attend college and I’m pretty much self-taught.  Everything I learned how to do I either did it on my own or took a course to learn the skills.

I’ve always loved to learn although at times it can be rather overwhelming.

With increased volatility in the search engine landscape, how do you see SEO’s future shape up in the time to come?  Does it still remain competitive to Paid Search Marketing?

In all honesty, SEO is not my area of expertise and I don’t even write for the search engines anymore.  I did back when I was doing just affiliate marketing and wanting to rank for certain terms.

As I ventured away from that though I started writing more for my readers and stopped concentrating on SEO.

The one thing I know we all can be sure of is that SEO will never die.  Without it there would be no search engines so I’m sure as the years go by that Google will continue to improve how content is being found in the search engines although we may not always agree with those changes.

I don’t want to get on Google’s bad side but I can’t ever seem to please them so I concentrate more on referral and social traffic.

I don’t do any paid search marketing so I can’t really comment on that.

How do you increase your Facebook shared post reach to your audience? Any ideas?

I haven’t concentrated much on Facebook to be honest with you.  Ever since they changed their algorithms in order for us to pay for our content to be promoted I have put more focus on other social platforms.

Now when my product is released hopefully this October, I may concentrate more on their ad network then promoting to just my fan base.

I haven’t taken the time to really grow that mainly because since they changed the way our fans see our content I didn’t want to be obligated to Facebook in that way.  I know I would have a much better reach with their ad network then just my fan base.

What is call tracking in SEO, why it is important. Please give examples?

Again, SEO is not something I do but I have heard of call tracking and I believe this is how it’s defined:

“It’s a way for online marketers to track which sources, campaigns and keywords generate phone calls.

 From what I’ve heard some of the biggest companies in the world use call tracking to measure the effectiveness of their PPC campaigns and SEO efforts. I can see why these companies would value call data significantly.

Marketing agencies also use call tracking. They use it as a way to prove their worth to their clients.  It is especially popular among agencies that do PPC and SEO work.”

How do you optimize 404 page errors on websites?

I have a custom 404 page so that if someone lands on that page I have a cute message waiting for them.  I actually direct them to my “Start Here” page so that they can find the information they were searching for.

Once I release my upcoming product I’ll have an advertisement on that page directing them to that as well.

I think that you should use this page to the best of your ability since people will have issues at times finding what they want.

Google Recently launched Panda and many big businesses got badly affected by it, were any of your sites affected by it?

None of my sites were affected by Google Panda.

What is the reason behind your Blogging success?

I was determined and consistent.

I had listened to so many people tell me what to do that I added what they shared plus what I felt comfortable doing and it just seemed to work well for me.  I did what I knew would bring me results and I did that five days a week consistently.

Still to this day I do those action steps which is why my blog has remained where it is with my readers and I’ve built up a great community, subscriber list and client base.

According to you, what are the best ways to promote a Blog?

For me personally I love blog commenting.  I do promote my posts on the social media sites as well but by commenting on other posts and putting yourself out there in front of enough people then they’re going to pay attention and be eager to see what you’re all about.

Of course, your comments have to be genuine and add value to the conversation because that’s what will make you stand out.

How are you building relationships with your Readers. How do you make them stay on your blog?

I truly care about my readers and they can tell from the content I write and how much I’m eager to help them.

When you like someone and you know they are helping you, you just want to hang around them for a while and learn more from them.

When you reach out to them and let them know that you want to help, no strings attached, people are more open to wanting to come back time and time again.

It’s not just about the content you write but people just want to know you truly care.

Penguin Proof, Panda Proof link building – Do those things exist.(I’ve been seeing link builders package or talk about this one on their services offered) ?

I seriously don’t pay attention to things like this.  I’ve never heard of either of these terms.  I do my best to provide valuable content to my readers that will benefit them so as long as you focus your efforts on delivering in that way I just don’t worry about Google’s next big thing.

Call me naïve if you want but I have yet to be affected by any of their changes so I must be doing something right.

How many years have you been blogging. What do you feel about blogging?

I’ve been blogging for six years and I started on the free platforms.  I’ve been blogging on AdrienneSmith.net for five this past June.

I love blogging and I feel it’s the best way to get in front of your target audience and let them know who you are and what you’re all about.  It’s the best way to help them learn, grow and solve their problems all while building relationships with them that can lead to having them either purchase what you promote or tell their friends all about how fabulous you are.

How many blogs do you have. Which blogs do you follow regularly?

I have three blogs at this time.  One is inactive and I started it because of a course I was taking several years ago.  I wanted to keep it up as a reference.

The other one I have I’m fixing to take offline because it promotes an affiliate product that I believe has run its course.

There are several bloggers that I met at the beginning of my own blogging journey that I look at as really dear friends.  They all write such wonderful content in different niches and I can honestly say I still follow them to this day.  Those people are:

Now there are a lot of blogs I visit regularly so that would be pretty long list.

What are your tips on traffic generation? Please reveal some must use techniques to get more traffic to new blogs?

Well as I mentioned earlier, blog commenting is my favorite way of getting out there in front of people and it’s the reason I am where I am today.  By leaving genuine comments on people’s blog they’ll start to really notice you.

People pay attention to that and will start reaching out to you because they want you to do the same thing on their blogs too.  It’s the best traffic source for me still to this day and has brought me so much success.

The other ways I drive traffic to my blog are by using Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and Triberr.

There are literally dozens of ways to drive traffic to your blog but you have to find where your target audience hangs out plus you have to enjoy those platforms too.  I’m on several others as well but these are my best sources to date.

Interview with SEO Marketer James Reynolds: Sharing Traffic Increasing Strategies

As part of our BloggersIdeas interview series, today we have James Reynolds, the founder of Veravospecialists in helping business owners get more traffic and make more sales. His company provide traffic services and training that help increase the overall responsiveness and profitability of your online marketing

Lets explore with James about his expertise.

First of all thanks a lot for coming on my blog James, you made my day by accepting my interview request. Tell me something about yourself and your educational background ?

I’m a British expatriate living in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. I landed up in Dubai after moving with a photography studio in 2006. I was general manager for the photography business, and that was my only job after leaving college. College wasn’t great for me, I dropped out twice.

What are your plans for the future?

Continue to grow a kick ass traffic agency. I love life in Dubai and can see myself based here for a while longer.

 What’s the next move for your company and what can we expect to see in the near future?

Historically we’ve been an organic search agency, but recently we’ve been investing more in our paid search division called Click Jam. I’ve taken on a key hire to head up this division and we are now better positioned to deliver fully integrated campaigns across several channels. Within our core services we offer organic search (SEO Sherpa) and Pay-Per-Click on Google, Facebook, Yahoo and a few other select platforms (Click Jam).

How to optimize 404 page errors on websites?

Keep a close eye on your Google Webmaster Tools account for any issues Google has crawling your site. Most often you would deal with 404 errors (not found pages) by redirecting the not found URL to another relevant URL on your site. This will ensure you don’t lose visitors who try to visit your site via ‘dead’ URL. You can set up search engine friendly 301 redirects via the HT Access file on your website’s server.

 Additionally I recommend you add a custom 404 error page for your site. Hint –  these pages are great for collecting leads, so consider putting an offer/opt in bribe on your 404 page. LeadPages have a great 404 error page template for this purpose.

Google Recently launched Panda and many big businesses got badly affected by it, did any of your sites got affected by it ?

Thankfully few (if any) of our customers were affected by Panda. The Panda update devalued low-quality website’s with thin content. Our customers are typically larger established businesses with substantial sites.

We did however have some customers affected by Google Penguin. In all cases these companies had worked with other agencies in the past who had implemented various manipulative link building campaigns. When Google refreshed the algorithm to filter the spammy links the sites lost ranking and impression share.

We were able to recover the website’s results by balancing out their link profile with good links.

What is the reason behind your Blogging success ?

Consistency. Most blogs fail because they lack stick sticktoitiveness.

How to increase your facebook shared post reach to your audience ? Any ideas.

Aside from share-worthy content, making your snippet appealing is important. Include a custom Facebook share image formatted to the size required for news feed and write a compelling title and description. When your link looks appealing you will get you more clicks and shares. Buzz Feed do this very well.

Without Knowing Much About Technology, How Can I Launch an Online Service Platform?

Work with specialist who do know about technology. One of the biggest challenges for entrepreneurs is doing it all themselves. No successful person ever made it on their own.

How Can I Turn Price-Sensitive Shoppers Into Customers. Any uggestions in comparison to Zopper.com(company where I work )? 

A couple of tips I got from my friend Ezra Firestone that will help to increase conversions ;-

1. Add a “why buy from us?” page on your site.

2. Use video on your products pages explaining features and benefits and what they can expect after they order.

3. Beneath the cart button add your USP’s.

How to handle guest post spam request ?

I don’t accept guest posts on my site’s so I just reply with no 🙂

Matt cutts is now against guest blogging. Would you still prefer guestblogging. What to do best in guest blogging ?

I love guest blogging and do as much as I can. But, guest blogging is not (directly) an SEO activity.  What Matt Cutts is against (and rightly so) is people using guest blogging, generally on low-quality sites as a way of building backlinks.

Use guest blogging to grow your reach by getting in front of other people’s audiences. Target website where your market hangs out and write your very best content for them. This will expose you to new people who may later become customers or subscribers.

What are the risks involved in Entrepreneurship Please tell us ?

There are many, but with higher risk comes higher reward.

Suppose if you were not SEO geek today, what you would be then.

A rugby player. I played for Northampton Saints who are the current English Premiership champions until I was 20 years old.

Interview with Ti Roberts Sharing Secrets For Improving Reader Engagement

Hello Our Dear Readers, You are welcome to Second Interview section of this blog, the “Expert Chat” Section where we have a chat with the Tiroberts.com Author Tiroberts.  She is going to discuss various tricky questions related to SEO and Blogging. So I hope you Enjoy her interview on my blog. She really put her hard work on this interview so do share your reviews in comments section.

First Of all Ti Roberts, Tell me something about yourself and also about your stunning blog!

Hi Jitendra,

First, I’d thank you for having me; I’m honored and really excited to be here!

Well, I’m the owner of The SEO Rebel blog and the creator of Top Bloggers Traffic.

I’ve been involved with internet marketing for over 8 years and I absolutely LOVE what I do!

On my blog I mainly focus on creating content about generating fast, sustainable traffic via social media, inbound marketing and evoking engagement from influencers.

What are your strategies for Google Hummingbird Update & did you see any drop in traffic of your site.

To be quite honest, I don’t really have any strategies for the Hummingbird update. I didn’t even know what the update entailed until about 2 weeks ago. LOL.

I just focus mainly on writing epic, valuable content and sharing it directly with my audience by leveraging the relationships I’ve built with my regular readers and other influencers in my niche.

Seeing as I don’t focus on organic search traffic anyway, I don’t get much traffic from targeted keywords and I didn’t really notice a drop or increase after the update.

Most of the search traffic that I get comes from searches for my name or brand, which is great as I’m more focused on building brand awareness rather than relying on search traffic.

What’s your specialty? Tell me about it.

I specialize in generating traffic via inbound marketing, directly engaging my audience and building relationships with my peers and other influeners in my niche.

In life and in business, I’ve learned that the only real leverage you have when you need help with something or want to accomplish a major goal is the relationships you have and the people that you know. So that’s what I focus 90% of my efforts on, building relationships. The other 10% is spent on creating high quality content that genuinely helps and educates my readers on a particular topic so that they feel compelled to share it with others.

From there, I let the viral nature of the snowball effect takeover to get more exposure and brand recognition.My ultimate goal is to become one of the biggest blog resources when it comes to inbound and relationship marketing.

How much traffic you generate from social media & how you use social media for your blog?

About 90% of my blog traffic is referral traffic from other blogs and social media. I use social media as a venue to engage my current audience and attract more readers. As well as a way to keep a steady stream of social traffic flowing throughout all of my posts, old and new. I’ve actually just got back into meticulously tracking my blog traffic. If you’re interested, you can see my latest traffic stats and numbers in my recent traffic report here.

What SEO strategies do you recommend?

I don’t really recommend any traditional SEO strategies.

I suggest that if you want to gain more organic search traffic, focus more on growing your brand by directly engaging your audience and mobilizing them to share your content on social media.

Three of the best ways to do this is by building relationships with your peers, engaging top bloggers in your niche and writing a lot of high quality guest posts on well-known blogs in your niche.

Oh yeah, here’s a good SEO tip your readers might enjoy…

If your goal is to get ranked high on Google for a competitive search term, say a popular tool that you’re an affiliate of, a fantastic way to do that is to host a giveaway for that specific tool/product/service on your blog and leverage the power of social media.

Have people who want to enter your giveaway share the giveaway post on social media: Twitter, Google+ or Facebook. I would suggest Twitter over the other two as Twitter’s social retweet signal seems to hold more weight for getting content ranked in Google.

All of the buzz around the giveaway post will catch Google’s eye and help you secure a top spot on Google for the keyword of the product/service, at least for a short while. Plus, your likely hood of generating affiliate sales will increase as a byproduct.

To further add some weight to this strategy, you can require people who enter the giveaway to comment on the post. Maybe ask them a specific question related to the thing you’re giving away so they can leave a substantive response – which will add more fresh social content to the post that Google likes as well.

Do you think 3rd party blog post links and ebook submissions are playing vital role these days?

Ebook submission is a good way to get more exposure and traffic to your site. I used to do this quite a bit last year when I relaunched my blog and it worked well for me. Getting third party links are also good, but you want to make sure that those links are high quality and are from authority, reputable sites you trust.

Is Author Rank is the latest technique of off page SEO? Do you think Google give preference to this?

I think it probably is and it would make sense for Google to give preference to their own stuff. However, I don’t put too much emphasis on it and I wouldn’t suggest that anyone else overly obsesses with it either. Just focus on writing valuable content and building relationships to get your content in front of your target audience and you’ll be fine.

What are some examples of how you have worked to sell your ideas in collaborative environments?

I think hosting free live webinars are a great collaborative environment to sell ideas, products or services. I used to hold live webinars years ago, but I haven’t done one in a while. However, I do plan on bringing them back in the near future.

One tip I want to give about hosting free live webinars is to NOT make them longer them longer than 20-30 mins.

An hour long webinar, especially for a busy blogger is just way too long. Try to condense your content into a short 25 minute lesson, no more than 3 main bullet points, packed with actionable content and value. And then, if you must, add a brief pitch at the end of the webinar for your paid product/service, no more than 5 minutes long.

Another good tip is to give an exclusive discount to only those who attended the webinar live. That would do good for boosting sales as well.

What Are Your Relationship Building and Outreach Skills?

In the blogosphere, everything starts with a blog comment. Once you’ve got a conversation going with a blogger in their comments, from there everything else is pretty simple.

If you want to get the full details and process of how I built my outreach strategy solely around commenting, I’ve created an entire blog commenting guide you can read here.

Do You Share Your Strategies Transparently With the SEO Community?

I sure do! I make it a practice to share everything that I do on a monthly basis to sustain and grow my blog. I feel that the best way to teach and help others is to let them learn from my experience and mistakes. Plus, it helps me to keep track of my activities, make changes where necessary and stay on the right path.

Sharing Online Marketing Strategies for 2014

Hey you bloggers we are back again with another stunning interview session!

As part of our BloggersIdeas interview series, today we have Freelancer & Professional online marketer Florin Birgu, he is skilled  in programming and technology, who would be sharing his experience in online marketing. He is currently working at eggmetrics.com & always keen to learn new stuff in online marketing.

Lets explore with Florin Birgu.

First of all thanks a lot for coming on my blog Florin, you made my day by accepting my interview request. Tell me something about yourself & your educational background.

I’m glad to be on your blog. Well, I’m self taught for most part. I started out as a developer since high school, but later during college I got interested in internet marketing to promote my services.

Later on I started to get good at it, so I started offering online marketing services too.

What are your plans for the future?

Currently I’m working on eggmetrics.com where I plan to launch some useful marketing tools that will help users with their online campaigns. Working in the internet marketing field is something I enjoy doing either with eggmetrics or by consulting clients.

What’s the next move for your company and what can we expect to see in the near future?

I will launch a beta version most likely next month and then depending on the feedback add more features. I plan also to develop other cool tools and write more useful guides.

Feedback and data will influence a lot our future decisions for the company, and I expect to see constant growth.

Please define term “Niche Blogging” and guide us to make a perfect Niche blog to make some money.

Niche Blogging refers to writing articles on a blog for people belonging to a particular niche, like online marketers and bloggers in our case.

Write great articles that people will find interesting like guides, the impact of important news in the industry or case studies, but don’t forget to focus a lot on catchy titles since most of the time that is what people will be seeing first and also focus on.

To find profitable keywords for your articles you can go sign in to Google Adwords and use the keyword planner tool.

Type several keywords in your niche, after that you can download the table and multiply the search volume and the CPC and this way you can find the value of that keyword.

What are the risks involved in entreprenuership. Please tell us.

High overhead costs is an important one, you have to limit spending when you are starting up. Another risk would be having a product that people don’t want, before building anything make sure you make first a MVP(Minimum viable product) to test the market.

That way you will save time by not creating a product that people won’t buy. You can create just a landing page without having a finished product and pay ads to see if people would be interested in it.

Suppose if you were not SEO geek today, what you would be ?

Most likely I would have been focusing more on programming since is something I enjoy doing. I guess I would say that my programming skills help me become a better marketer because if I ever need a tool to do a certain task then I can just create it.

For example, I needed once to analyse the backlinks of a client, but instead of copy pasting them in the browser I made a free tool to help me go through them a lot faster.

How to optimize 404 page errors on websites.

First I would make sure the response code is indeed 404, then I would have on it some links to popular resources to keep the user on the site. This way you can also lower bounce rate.

Or you can get creative with it and post something funny on it and you can submit it to funny/creative page lists like http://fab404.com/.

Google Recently launched Panda and many big businesses got badly affected by it, did any of your sites got affected by it.

No, actually some sites actually improved their traffic. Even for online shops I recommend them to write good product descriptions in order to get better rankings, copying a product description wont make you rank higher, you should add more value to it such as a review or.

Must Read: SEO Tips From the Experts [Infographic]

It’s good to monitor your rankings in order to detect a penalty as early as possible and take action. If your rankings drop because of an algorithmical I recommend visiting Search Engine Roundtableto find out what could be the cause.

What is the reason behind your Blogging success ?

Targeting good keywords, catchy titles and promoting the articles, you can’t just rely on search engine traffic, and then hope someone will link to them.

Many popular blogs today were very active in promoting themselves. Wordstream is a great example and here you can see the strategies and methods they used in order to increase their traffic.

According to you, what are the best ways to promote a Blog?

Social media and SEO for me are the best ways to promote a blog. If you don’t have many followers you could reach out to influencers in your niche to give you a boost.

Also websites like Reddit, Digg and Stumbleupon are a great way to get a boost in visitors.

How you are building relationships with your Readers? How you make them stick on your blog?

The way I accomplish this is by trying to make interesting content so hopefully they will remember the website and return to it. Another way is to offer them a reason to follow us on social networks or subscribe, for example you can offer some exclusive content available only to subscribers.

Penguin Proof, Panda Proof link building – Do those things exist? (I’ve been seeing link builders package or talk about this one on their services offered)

I would suggest to keep away from automatic links since it might be harmful in the long term if it doesn’t comply to Google’s guidelines.

Recently even churn and burn sites aren’t as effective as they used to be, so I recommend people to have a long-term strategy and build a brand through your website. Also removing spammy links can take a lot of time and effort.

What is your biggest success & failure in SEO? Please share with us.

Success in SEO is usually slow and steady, this is how you win this race. I guess one of my biggest success would be removing penalties for several clients.

And one of my biggest failures is not realizing sooner the importance of good content and actively promoting it. The benefits of it is not only the direct traffic but also the increase in SERPs.

Why do you think Online marketing industry would sustain your interest in the long haul?

It’s something I enjoy doing and it’s a growing industry. We’ve also seen a major shift of the marketing budget from offline advertising to online campaigns.

Online marketing offers a better audience targeting and detailed reporting, which means more value for the money our customers spend as compared with traditional media and offline advertising in general.

As long as there will be a need for more profits, there will also be a need for industries that can make it happen such as online marketing.

Top 7 Free Image Sharing Sites 2022

Do you want to know what the best free picture-sharing sites are for the year 2022?

SEO, earning more visibility, building your brand, increasing traffic, and the list goes on.

You may already be familiar with some of the most popular photo-sharing sites, such as Facebook and Instagram, but there are many more.

The goal is to pick the right image-sharing site for your photographs so that you may gain more exposure, traffic, and SEO benefits. In 2022 and beyond, here is a list of the top 7 free photo-sharing websites.

1. Pinterest

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past several years, you’ve probably heard about Pinterest. It’s the finest place to share your photos, gifs, and other media (commonly referred to as “pins”).

Pinterest was created in 2010 by Ben Silbermann, Paul Sciarra, and Evan Sharp, and it grew slowly but steadily.

Pinterest is currently used by over 250 million individuals across the world. It’s a fantastic site where you can freely submit and share your pins (pictures).

Gmail, any other email account, and Facebook are the three options for signing up. It is entirely free to join. You may start pinning the photographs to your Pinterest boards, collaborate, and connect with others after your account is activated.

2. Flickr

Flickr

Flickr is one of the world’s most popular and oldest photo-sharing platforms. I selected it not just because of its popularity, but also because of its communal characteristics when I first started sharing my images.

Why? So, once you’ve uploaded your shot, you may add it to a community group like conceptual photography or macro photography, for example. 

Flickr is distinct from other photo-sharing websites because of its enormous user base and diverse skill levels. The Flickr community’s diversity of skill levels allows you to post photographs without fear of being evaluated.

If you want to create a Flickr profile, you’ll just need a Yahoo account to do so because Flickr is owned by Yahoo.

Following the acquisition, Flickr announced new Pro memberships for $50 per year that include unlimited photo uploads and other features. In the near future, Flicker’s new free accounts will be limited to 1,000 photographs.

If you have more than a thousand photos on your account, they will be permanently erased. If you recall, old Flickr’s free plan included 1TB of storage, so this new free package is a long cry from what it used to be.

3. Google Photos

Google Photos - Free Image Sharing Sites

Google Photos is a Google-owned cloud photo storing service. As a result, your images will have the same level of security and convenience as other Google services.

We suggest it to anybody, from children to inquiring elders, because of its simplicity. Google Photos is powered by an amazing picture recognition engine. As a consequence, they’ll be able to figure out what’s on your photographs and label them appropriately.

This means you can quickly discover your photographs by just saying what you’re looking for. For instance, if you have a lot of images and can’t find your bikini shot from your previous vacation, Google Photos can help. 

It’s completely free to use, and Google will save your photos in Google Drive (and it provides the first 15 GB free of cost).

Storage space is unrestricted. Albums, films, animations, and even collages may be made. You may use them on any device (phone, tablet, or computer).

Use shared albums to share with friends and family. Unlimited photographs and videos are automatically backed up and synched.

4. Instagram

Instagram

Due to the social components of this photo-sharing platform, Instagram has become a household brand. Moreover, their filters enable anyone to rapidly modify and improve their images.

According to the most recent social media study, Instagram has captured the hearts of a large number of people–700 million to be exact. Using hashtags to gain greater visibility is one approach to harness the power of this group.

According to research, postings that include at least one hashtag receive 12.6 percent greater interaction. #Love, #Instagood, #Me, #Cute, and #Follow are the most popular hashtags on Instagram.

Instagram is a fantastic platform for editing, showcasing, and sharing images with your friends and the rest of the world.

5. Imgur

Imgur - Free Image Sharing Sites

You may easily submit your photographs and animated images (or Gifs) in full-size quality to Imgur. It’s a never-ending stream of online images, GIFs, and memes. Anyone may join Imgur and share an infinite amount of photographs and images right now.

The maximum picture size for static non-animated photos is 20 MB, while for Gifs it is 200 MB. Joining the website is completely free. Even without registering, you can upload photographs from your computer to Imgur in a matter of seconds.

You may use Imgur to share photos with the rest of the world (Reddit, FB, or other sites). 

Sign up for Imgur using your Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, or Gmail credentials, or sign up for free with your Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, or Gmail credentials.

6. 1x.com

1X.com

Unlike the other websites described above, 1x.com is selected by a team of experts. That implies that your shot will be accepted or disapproved by a group of experienced photographers once it has been uploaded.

Only 5% of the images submitted will be published, according to reports. Getting your photographs published on 1x.com may be beneficial to your resume as well as your self-esteem, due to the excellent reputation for the quality of images published.

Many photographers, in my experience, dislike this website. This isn’t because it’s awful; it’s because they’ve been rejected by curators several times in the past.

All of the photographs on 1x.com may be purchased as prints. You and 1x will divide the profits from print sales 50/50. Critique, lessons, and right-click download prevention are among the platform’s other essential features.

7. Dropbox

Dropbox - Free Image Sharing Sites

Dropbox is a cloud-based storage service that was launched in 2007 to allow users to upload and store various sorts of files, including images, with the express objective of keeping the team’s data in sync.

You may create simple sharable links to your files or folders and share them with anybody, anywhere.

The individuals you share the link with will be able to access it and possibly download it if you let it.

It is the world’s first smart workspace, with cloud storage, simple file sharing, productivity tools, and content collaboration.

It helps your team stay organized, engaged, and in sync with their teams by bringing their content together and working in a centralized manner.

This is a more complex platform for teams and companies, but you will get 2 GB of free storage space to save and share photographs if you use it for image sharing.

There will be no compression, and all photographs will be kept in their original format.

Simply sign up for Dropbox using your Google account to get started. The Dropbox Basic plan includes 2 GB of free storage.

If you ever need additional capacity, you can upgrade to any of the individual or team plans that include at least 2 TB of storage.

Quick Links

Conclusion- Free Image Sharing Sites In 2022

Instagram, Flickr, Pinterest, and other image-sharing platforms give you a lot of exposure. You may not only display your photographs but also give connections to your stores, applications, and websites, among other things.
